Can a 2020 Ram 2500 with Rambox Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer  


I have a 2020 Ram 2500 that has the ramboxes and I would like to tow a fifth wheel trailer with it. Is there a way to do this? I've seen that the ramboxes make it difficult.

There is a way to to a fifth wheel trailer with your 2020 Ram 2500 that has the Ramboxes but you have to install a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer so that the pivot point is raised up high enough that there isn't interference between the pin box and the truck bed rails when turning. If you check out the picture I attached you can see what I mean.

Sidewinders like the # RP3FR are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one.

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 that shows the correct Sidewinder to get based on which pin box you have.

You'd then need to use a fixed hitch like the Reese part # RP30047 with the wedge # SWW-03 plus a fifth wheel rail install kit part # RP50054-58 and you'd be set.
