I have a 16K Signature Series hitch installed in my truck. I want an 18k with the multi swivel head. Can I just buy part#58213 and put it on the base of the 16k hitch I already have? And would it then swivel front to back and side to side?
asked by: William J
I contacted our representative at Reese about converting your 16K Signature Series fifth-wheel to an 18K fifth-wheel hitch with swivel head. The representative informed me that you would need to use the item you referenced, Replacement Fifth Wheel Head 18K, part # 58213, and you would also need to replace the center section of the hitch.
The replacement center section of the hitch that you would need is Replacement Center Section for 18K Signature Series Fifth Wheel, part # 58225.
After installing part # 58213 and part # 58225, your hitch will be an 18K rated hitch, basically an 18K Signature Series Hitch.
Looking at the cost to replace the head and center section, it may be more cost effective to replace the entire hitch with an 18K Signature Series Hitch. The reason I say this, is because I think it would be easier to sell your 16K hitch as one piece rather than sell it in pieces.
