I have a sidewinder pin box and the universal wedge that came with it would not work on the Titan hitch. I tried to file it down and while it would now fit the slot it would allow (very little) side to side movement. I was looking at having to expend a rather large sum of money to purchase a sliding hitch but the good folks at eTrailer told me Reese had released a wedge for my hitch. The new wedge fits perfectly and solved all my hitch problems. I could not be happier with this product. I also appreciate the sales staff at eTrailer for steering me in the right direction and saving me a ton of money. 326279

I am done with Reese .... The constant no release problem that seems to follow Reese. I have the Reese 15k pro series with bed saver (no or hard to release) and then I purchased The Reese 20k Titan (same hard to release) .... Then I purchased a b&w 18k with a slider ... Locked out the revolution ... And was I surprised! It always releases every time. I am going to junk both Reese's hitches because I don't think anyone should own them! Salvi p.. 302602

Elite airborne sidewinder is still the best solution for a short box but the ride isnt as good as I hoped it would be. It is considerably better than it was when I first installed it and had it set too stiff. Still the only short box hitch I will go with till something better comes along. 261124

Instructions were great & installation was easy. High quality parts that looked great and are holding up well. Etrailer and Cequent (Reese's parent co.) are both great companies to deal with - extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the products they sell. 295719

  • Which Wedge to Use Reese Titan # RP30867 20K with Revolution 90 Pin Box
  • The universal wedge included with the Sidewinder/Revolution is compatible with the Titan 16 and 20K 5th wheel hitch, but the # RP30865 wedge that's custom designed to be compatible with the Titan 5th wheel hitch would fit better.

  • FIfth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for Reese Titan Hitch in 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • For your 2017 Ram 2500 without the factory rail kit the correct fifth wheel rail kit you would want is the Reese kit part # RP50054-58. This is a custom fit rail kit for your truck that will install much easier and faster than a universal kit. Plus it will minimize drilling. This will work well with the Reese Titan hitch part # RP30867 that you have. For a custom wedge to use this hitch with your Sidewinder you would want the # RP30865.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2016 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Ram Boxes
  • Based on your earlier question you indicated that the trailer has a gross weight capacity of 18,000 pounds so you would want a hitch that exceeds that for safety. the other issue is the Ram Box feature. The Ram Boxes mean that you will have to have one of two possible set ups: 1) A fixed 5th wheel hitch with a Sidewinder pin box 2) A Demco hitch that has 22-1/2 inches of travel The second option will not work because that hitch has a capacity of 13,000 pounds. So you will need...

  • Hooking up Trailer that has Sidewinder with Taller 2017 Ford F-250 and Reese Rail Adapter
  • The Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 that you referenced will add about 3" from where the factory pucks are on your 2017 Ford F-250. Although 3" does not seem like a lot, it could affect how easy it is to hookup your trailer to your F-250. You can definitely switch to one of the Reese Elite 5th wheel hitches if that makes hooking up your trailer easier. The Elite # RP30142 is rated for 18K and has a height adjustment from 14" - 18", while part # RP30871 is rated for...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing Setup for a 2017 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • Since your 2017 Ford F-150 has the 5-1/2 foot bed you will want to use a Sidewinder with a stationary hitch. For any truck bed that is shorter than 6 feet a sliding 5th wheel hitch just doesn't provide enough clearance for you to take tighter turns. A Sidewinder has a rotating turret which moves the pivot point from above your 5th wheel hitch back 22 inches to where the pin box installs on your trailer. To choose the correct Sidewinder that replaces your pin box you will simply need...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit for 2015 Ram 1500 Short Bed Towing Trailer with Reese Revolution
  • Yes, you are correct. Since you are buying a trailer with a Reese Revolution box you would want a stationary hitch since you do not need the slider. The Revolution will provide all of the needed turning clearance. For a stationary hitch the Reese Titan part # RP30867 would be a great option. Then for a rail kit confirmed as a fit the part # RP50142-58 would be what you need as it is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Ram 1500 short bed. The wedge you'd need then is the part # RP30865.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With Revolution Pin Box and 2015 Silverado 2500
  • For your 2015 Silverado 2500HD, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56001-53 which are 48 inches long, fit industry standard hitches, and are easier to install because of the length. If you prefer the traditional 43 inch rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50066-58. Both of these have custom brackets so no drilling into the frame...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Reese Revolution Pin Box And 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 6.5 Foot Bed
  • The Reese Revolution pin box will not work with the B&W companion that uses the gooseneck underbed hitch for the base. It puts too much force on the under body for that combination. If you want to use an underbody rail kit, I recommend the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30868 which can be used with the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 18,000 lbs # RP30142.

  • Sidewinder Pin Box and 5th Wheel Hitch for Jayco Eagle 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You may be able to purchase the trailer with a Revolution king pin since you're getting it brand new. If not, let me know the model number of the pin box that's on it when you get the trailer and I'll recommend the correct Sidewinder for you. The hitch I recommend is the Reese Titan # RP30867 rated up to 20,000 pounds. The head can be removed to take the hitch in and out of your truck if you'd like. To install the Titan in your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 use the Custom Install Bracket Kit...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit and Hitch For 2017 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • There is not a factory prep package for the 2017 F-150 and no adapter to make a factory prep hitch work. For your F-150 with 5-1/2 foot bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034-53 or the slightly more difficult to install # RP50087-58. For a hitch, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30867 which has a serrated jaw design and a vibration...

  • Custom Wedge for a Sidewinder Pin Box and Reese R20 or Titan 20 5th Wheel Hitch

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Revolution Pin Box To Reduce Jarring And Chucking
  • I reached out to the manufacturer of your Revolution 10K and that particular model is made uniquely for your trailer. In other words it is not a pin box that can use another style of pin box, it is custom made for your trailer. There is a replacement available if you ever have an issue with yours, but it is a direct exchange for the same Revolution model. There is nothing else that fits. If you decide you don't want to use the revolution turning function, you can lock it out with bolts...

  • Recommended Towing Setup for a 2009 Ford F-150 Flareside Pulling a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The only solution that you really have that will accommodate the narrow box on your 2009 Ford F-150 is changing out your current pin box for a Sidewinder. A Sidewinder pin box rotates at the turret instead of where the king pin is. This gives you an additional 22 inches of turning clearance and will keep the pin box from possibly hitting the side of your truck bed. The Sidewinder pin box actually has the option to come with an air bag to help make the ride more smooth. Most likely you...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes
  • There is a specific set of parts needed in order to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 that has the Ram Box feature. The issue is that the Ram Box truck bed is more narrow than a regular bed and as a result the trailer pin box will hit the bed sides when turning. In order to make it work you will need to use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer and fixed 5th wheel hitch in the truck. The first thing to check is if there is a Sidewinder that fits the trailer. To determine that...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch And Rails To Be Used With Revolution Pin Box On 2016 GMC Sierra 1500SLE
  • For your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500SLE, I recommend using the Reese Titan 16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # RP30866. This hitch has a serrated dual-jaw design for superior hold, a built-in vibration-isolator system, and a easy-to-see king pin indicator. These unique systems ensure a smooth ride with minimal jarring and chucking. For a custom fit rail kit, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches...

  • Will a Sidewinder Replace a RotoFlex Pin Box 1621 on a Trailer
  • The 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret # RP61422 that you referenced comes with everything needed to swap out the RotoFlex 1621 you have currently installed on your trailer. The Sidewinder will work great with your Reese Titan 16 slider part # RP30869 that you have but you will need to leave the slider in the forward most position. The correct wedge to use with this hitch and Sidewinder is part # RP30865.

  • Recommended Reese 5th Wheel Hitch for Towing Durango 1500 D251RLT Camper with Revolution Pin Box
  • All of Reese's 5th wheel hitches are designed to be compatible with the Reese Revolution Pin Box. If you are looking for a 5th wheel hitch, I highly recommend the Reese Titan 16 # RP30866 because of its many great features like the dual jaw with geared teeth to provide even, full contact with the king pin and the cast pivot beam that works to provide a smooth, quiet ride. The Reese Titan 16 also features a wide funnel to make it easier to guide the king pin into the hitch. This hitch...

We have had customers confirm that using a Sidwinder allows the standard hitches to work, however Reese has not tested it, so they cannot confirm. For a hitch compatible with your sidewinder, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30867. I recommend using custom wedge...

  • For your 2013 Silverado 2500HD with B&W Turnoverball, there is no simple solution unless you want to have a good quality but basic "non-automatic" sliding hitch like # BWRVK3400. This will require getting in and out of your truck to adjust the slide for turning, but is compatible with your current gooseneck hitch. Your two other options will require removing your gooseneck hitch and installing 5th wheel rails, because of the torque issues you stated in either case with the other options....

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Sidewinder Setup for 2017 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • Your setup sounds great but the biggest thing to determine will be the pin box your fifth wheel trailer has so that you can pick out the correct Sidewinder. Not all trailers have the same pin box so you have to first figure out what you have and go from there. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once you figure out which pin box you have you can check the FAQ I attached that has a chart...

This will move the rotating point back 22 inches, by using a wedge at the hitch and a rotating turret at the rear by the 5th wheel pin box bolts.

  • Are Both Sliding 5th-Wheel Hitch and Sidewinder Needed for 2013 Chevrolet Silverado w/ 5-1/2 Ft Bed
  • The best option for towing a 5th-wheel trailer with your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado with a 5-1/2 foot bed is to use a fixed 5th-wheel trailer hitch along with a Reese Sidewinder Rotating Pin Box. With a 5-1/2 foot bed, a sliding trailer hitch may not have enough room to slide the necessary length to provide enough turning clearance without coming into contact with your truck's tailgate. A Sidewinder such as the Reese # RP61420 will replace your trailer's pin box and move the trailer's...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing Setup for a 2016 Ram 2500 with RamBox
  • I can tell you have really done your research. The RamBox is a great idea but it does require the use of a Sidewinder due to the limited side-to-side clearance of the bed rails on your 2016 Ram 2500. For a replacement Sidewinder for your Lippert 1621HD pin box the Sidewinder # RP61420 is the correct replacement provided that the weight capacity of your trailer does not exceed 16,000 lbs. If it does then you will need to go with part # RP61421 which has a 19,000 lbs capacity. If you...

This is custom fit that won't require drilling into the frame and is an easier install due to the outboard brackets.

There is one secure way to ensure your bed is protected, but it requires changing your pin box and your hitch. If you already have above bed rails for your 5th wheel, I recommend swapping your slider for a non-moving hitch like # RP30867 and then changing your pin box to the Reese Sidewinder 5th...

As long as you have such rails installed, the new hitch should fit just fine. Since you have a Sidewinder installed, I also recommend the Sidewinder Wedge for Reese Titan 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP30865, which will prevent your Sidewinder king pin from pivoting in your hitch. I've included a demo video for the Reese Titan hitch for you to check out.
