Will the Andersen Hitch Work On a Ram With the RamBox


Can I use this setup in my 2019 Ram 2500 crew cab with the ram box option or what would you suggest for a light weight option


Expert Reply:

I spoke to one of the technicians at Andersen, and the # AM3200 can work on your 2019 Ram 2500 with the RamBox, but there are some stipulations. You will need to read over the installation instructions, specifically pages 4 and 5, to make sure all the measurements will fit with your pin box and bed. Andersen also recommends having the red coupler rotated towards the cab of the vehicle when using in the fifth wheel formation. This is still fairly precarious, however, and it is advisable to go with a standard fixed hitch and a rotating pin box, like the Reese # RP34FR when the vehicle is equipped with the RamBox. Keep in mind this is an example and may not fit your specific pin box number. That will need to be verified before replacing.

If you have a rotating pin box and prefer to not have it locked in the stationary position, you would need to go with a fixed Fifth Wheel hitch like the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30928.

You could also replace your current pin box with a Reese Goose Box like # RP94716 coupled to the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck adapter # 16055, which does have a 3 inch offset, helping with the clearance.
