Fifth Wheel Europe BV is the sales organization for a ‘young’ transport solution: the Fifthwheel.

Since its founding in 2008 the company has mostly invested in the developement of the new product and its sub-components. The identity of the organization is in the making, but can now be described as innovative, service oriented and reliable.

Initially the idea for this transport solution started with the fifthwheels in America and the planned changes in the ‘BE’ driver licensing legislation. And because the market and legislation in Europe have their own character, we researched how such a concept could be applied for the European market.

First we got an electric braking system developed and CE approved. Fortunatly, this procedure was completed well. The braking system doesn’t only offer possibilities fort he Fifthwheel, but alsof or other applications.

There is also attention paid to a special coupling to achieve the flat loading floor, for when the trailer is disconnected. This proces was also succesfully completed and CE approved.

After all the developments made we now have plenty of space to give the marketing and sales of this beautiful technical product all the attention it deserves.


Wagenbouw Bolle BV is the builder of the Fifth Wheel, and has over 40 years experience in providing advice to customers and the engineering and building (custom) trailers to 7 tons. The company is efficient, simple, durable, if necessary, innovative solutions. Customer demand is the basis for all process steps from consultancy to sales.

How do we build?

After the trailer has been worked out in 3D drawings, the chassis of steel is being built according to these drawings. Once the chassis is galvanized it is assembled. The neck is put on to the chassis, the lights, the tires and axles and the brake system are being assembled. In the case of a Fifth Wheel with construction, it is also built on the chassis.

Adjustable neck

The neck of The Fifth Wheel is adjustable in height at two places. Hand at the connection with the trailer. With bolts through the neck the height is set. Adjustment is possible, so that the Fiftwheel can be linked behind several pick-ups. With a closed trailer the neck is fixed at one hight. Mit einem geschlossenen Aufbau ist den Hals fixiert. Also, the coupling itself is adjustable. On the pictures you can see how it looks.

Completion and delivery

If broadly the trailer is ready, the details can be finished. Think of the locks, adding sealings, double floor, etc. Once the trailer and the vehicle are fully prepared, they go to the homologation. After homologation, the total combination is delivered.

Our production process

After we have developed the semi-trailer in 3D drawings, the steel chassis is built based on the drawings. After the chassis has been galvanized, it is assembled. The neck is put on, the lighting, the tires and axles and the braking system are put on. If it concerns a Fifthwheel with superstructure, this is also built on the chassis.
