Fifth Gear 5th Airborne King Pin, Sidewinder, Joyrider Equalizers, and Toylok Retractable Cable

Display Options:



Fifth Gear was created by veterans of the RV market who sought to create a safer, more comfortable, and easier fifth wheel towing experience. The result was a few great products starting with the Fifth Airborne Air Ride King Pin Coupler, the Sidewinder and then the combination of the two-the Fifth Airborne Sidewinder. These products make for a much smoother ride and eliminate the need for getting out of the truck when maneuvering your rig with a short bed pickup. Another product designed for a smoother trailer ride is the Joyrider cushioned equalizer system. Rubber in the equalizer dampens road shock to significantly improve your towing experience.





5th Airborne Premium Fifth wheel Air-Ride Pin Box

5th Airborne Premium Fifth wheel Air-Ride Pin Box

The 5th Airborne premium fifth wheel air-ride coupler gives the smoothest ride possible.

Sidewinder Rotating Fifth Wheel Pin Box

Sidewinder Rotating Fifth Wheel Pin Box

Sidewinder by 5th Airborne is the premium pin box coupler designed specifically for short bed pickups. It allows you to make up to 90-degree turns without exiting your vehicle, throwing a switch, or even pushing a button! Sidewinder's kingpin locking mechanism moves the truck and trailer's pivot position 20 inches rearward of the fifth wheel hitch in the truck bed. This allows for several great features: short bed pickups can now effortlessly handle up to a 90-degree turn with no contact between the truck's cab and the coach, hooking up and disconnecting the trailer can now be done at any angle, the trailer now tracks closer to the truck which means no more extra wide turns and more response when backing up, and lastly the extra clearance allows for full use of your truck's bed space for carrying fuel tanks, toolboxes and cargo. Best of all, it eliminates the need for a fifth wheel hitch slider and therefore the getting in and out of the truck cab whenever you want to maneuver the trailer.
