Maximum weights for Shocker QuickAir: Towing capacity = 25,000 lbs Tongue = 6,000 lbs 

Safety Notice: The Shocker Hitch is a heavy-duty unit, however, it is imperative that any weight capacity ratings are not exceeded on the ball that is mounted on your tow vehicle, or the Shocker Hitch. Use only a 2 5/16″ dia. Ball. V-19 rated. Do not exceed G.V.W.R. of ball being used.

This gooseneck hitch has a shorter stem than a normal gooseneck and is designed to be
used with the Shocker Replacement Goose Box for 5th Wheel Campers only. This gooseneck air
hitch cannot be used on a normal gooseneck trailer as the inner tube steel is too short for that
application.
