I don't know what the Fifth wheel has to do with it, but it must be a buckboard or covered wagon, a pic would have been nice. [:0]

I am by no means a Studebaker wagon expert, but am familiar with the fifth wheel concept on farm wagons. It is basically a roller bearing assembly that allows for a tighter turning radius than normal. I suspect this might be important with large wheel wagons where the rim would normally strike the wagon body and limit the turn.

Thank you, Doctor, that makes sense!

Do we care if it "makes sense"? We own Studebakers! Oh, just laugh. It's a joke on us. Most of us, anyway. Maybe some of us. I do hope it is more than just me................
