5th wheelers don't always automatically mean greater weight. Sometimes, it's a choice of having the greater maneuverability afforded by the design, though ultimately, they do extend to heavier weight classes. Still, axle count can nullify part of the tongue weight. A few years ago my dad and I built a 4 axle trailer. Alone it was heavy. Add an 11,000lb boat and it was quite a load, but while it was a gooseneck design, the actual pin weight was surprisingly mild.
