Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Short Bed with Factory Prep Package


Is there a 5th wheel with a slider that will match up with dodges 5th wheel prep package


Expert Reply:

For a perfect fit in your 2018 Ram 3500 with factory rails, I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K # BWRVK3670. This slider is an easy fit designed specifically for your truck. This hitch is made in the USA and has 12 inches of travel front to back.

There are other 5th wheel hitches that will work but they require an adapter.

For an auto sliding option, you can use the rail adapter # DM6099 and then hitch # DM8550034 for 18K or # DM8550035 for 21K. This will allow you to maneuver around gas pumps and into your campsite without moving from the cab of your truck.

For a more economical option, you can use the Curt A16 slider # C16521 along with its adapter rails # C16022.

With any of these hitches, you may want to consider adding a second 7-way trailer connector to the bed of your truck for easy access. I recommend the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector - 10' Long # C56000 for that application.
