Connect the turret portion (sold separately) of the sidewinder to this arm assembly to create a complete 5th Airborne sidewinder, which will enable you to easily make up to 90-degree turns. The built-in air bag both cushions and supports your load.
Use the formula below to ensure that there will be enough space between your truck cab and trailer when you are executing a 90-degree turn with the 5th Airborne sidewinder installed.
(A + B) - C = Clearance
A = Distance from center of 5th-wheel hitch jaw to truck cab in inches
B = Length of sidewinder arm in inches (22")
C = Width of trailer in inches divided by 2
If you are using the 16,000-lb 5th Airborne sidewinder, then B = 22"
If the distance from the center of your hitch to your truck's cab is 36", then A = 36"
And, if your fifth-wheel trailer is 102" wide, then C = 51"
102/2 = 51
(36 + 22) - 51 = 7" of clearance
