2004 titan 4 door pick up 5 1/2 foot bed 26.5 foot 5th wheel camper
asked by: john t
You will need to use a Sidewinder to be able to tow a fifth wheel with your 2004 Nissan Titan with a 5-1/2 foot bed. To get the correct Sidewinder for your application you would need to find out the type of pin box you have on your camper.
The pin box number is either on a sticker on the pin box or it will be stamped on the pin box itself. If it is not there or is worn off you will have to contact the trailer manufacturer with the VIN or serial number so they can provide you with the pin box number.
On the 2004 Nissan Titan with the 5-1/2 foot bed you will need the Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, # RP30035, with the Fifth Wheel Hitch Custom Installation Brackets - Nissan Titan, # RP58405.
For a fifth wheel hitch it will depend on what gross towing capacity you will need, if 18,000 lbs. capacity will work then a good recommendation is Reese 18K Fifth Wheel Hitch - Select Plus, # RP30081. It has a 4-way pivot head which tilts side to side and front to back to make it easier to connect your camper to your truck on uneven ground. Also the 9 inch wide king pin funnel will help in hooking up the camper.
I am sending a few links to the instructions for the parts mentioned and also a page with some good information on Sidewinders.
