Reese 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel King Pin Installation - 2001 Coachmen Catalina Lite Fifth Wheel

Hi there, camp runners. Today on our 2001 Coachmen Catalina, we're going to be installing Reese's 5th Airborne Sidewinder. If you have a short bed truck, and you want to haul a 5th wheel, the big issue that you're going to run into is the cab of your truck can potentially come into contact with your 5th wheel trailer when performing hard turns. The sidewinder will position your pin box further rearward keeping it further away from your cab, and will also move the pivoting point further rearward. Our pivoting point is now located right here underneath our wing, where it attaches, and the king pin is now here at the front of our sidewinder, giving us much more clearance so we don't have to worry anymore about turning too tight, and creaming the cab of our truck.Another unique feature is the onboard airbag in our thin box. The airbag will help eliminate vibrations and stress on the frame of your 5th wheel trailer, and it will also help provide a smoother ride going down the road. more

It's going to move the pivot point from the pin itself right here. It's going to move it all the way back to where our pin box mounts.

You want to check our fit guide to make sure you getting the right one for your application.Now they've thought about the short bed truck user as well, so you're not limited to just using this on the long bed. They had this Sidewinder option on some of the pin boxes and what it does is, it moves our pivot point from right here on top of our gooseneck to just underneath the trailer at our connection point there. This can give you a lot of added turning radius, if needed, with the short bed applications.Now the Fifth Airbornes available in the 16, 18, and 21,000 pound models. It's more important, though, that you get the pin box replacement that's designed for your application. more

Reese Sidewinder with Rotating Turret Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at and reviewing Reese's Sidewinder Fifth-Wheel King Pin with Rotating Turret. Part number, RP61420.The Sidewinder's going to be an all in one solution for your turning maneuver needs with your fifth-wheel trailer.It's going to reposition the pivot point from your king pin, 22" back. Moving the pin back will be ideal for short bed trucks, where clearance between your trailer and your cab is too tight for close corner maneuvers.When comparing this to other options on the market, such as manual and auto sliders, you're going to get further travel, as most sliders only offer a foot to a foot and a half, where this has 22 total inches.Manual sliders are going to cause you to have to get out of the truck to position it back, get back in and then make your tight corner and then reset it again. Whereas, this is always going to be in position ready to go at all times. Set it and forget it.And when compared to auto sliders, which also eliminate the need to get out of the vehicle, this is going to give you considerably longer length. Nearly double that of some auto sliders.The design functions by using a locking wedge that goes up against your king pin. more

It doesn't make for a very comfortable ride. Requires quite a bit of driver input trying to get everything working together.What we've done here is replace that standard fixed pin box with the Reese 5th Airborne.

Here's what our Airborne Sidewinder looks like once we have it installed. This is not only going to replace our king pin, but it's also going to give us a rotating turret, which is going to allow us to make a lot tighter of turns. Instead of the pivot point being at the king pin, it's going to moving back an extra 22 inches, which is going to allow us a lot more maneuverability and allow us to make up to 90 degree turns.So in the case of a short bed pick up truck, this is going to allow us to make those extra tight turns without having to get out, flip any switches, or install a slider in the back of our bed. This is also going to have the trailer track more closely to our truck, giving us better maneuverability. It does have a fully enclosed air bag which is going to reduce chucking by up to 60%, and the vertical load shock by up to 44%, which that not only is going to give us a better ride, but it's also going to take the wear and tear off of the frame of our coach as well as keep the contents inside nice and secure.Now, our airbag is easily adjusted with these two bolts, and the general rule of thumb is the lighter the tongue weight, then the closer to the front that we're going to have those bolts, and the heavier the tongue weight, the further back they're going to be. more

B&W Turnoverball King Pin Adapter Review

Speaker: Today we're going to be taking a look at the B&W Turnover Ball King Pin Adaptor. This is Part Number BWGNXA4000. This King Pin Adaptor is going to be the perfect solution for converting your B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch into one that will accept the trailers that have the inverted fifth wheel on them. Typically, you're going to do this in a flatbed style truck, as you can see, we're in a normal bed truck. It's a special situation with this customer. Typically, these are going to work out great for going into the back of a flatbed that already has a gooseneck in it, that you'll be able to, then, backup to those really big hay trailers or anything that's got the inverted fifth wheel similar to a semi-trailer. Nice, heavy-duty steel construction, as you can see. more

Today were going to review Part# 5AS16K. This is the Reese Elite Airborne/Sidewinder Combo. This one has no turret, and it is a 16,000-pound weight capacity. The reason this does not have a turret is because it is required you have to mount a rotating turret on here to work correctly. We do sell those separately, but theres about five different ones that you would need to choose from, and youll have to pick the correct one for your application because the turret itself is made to fit a particular pin box manufacturer that is on your fifth wheel. Once you get what pin box manufacturer you have and then choose the correct turret, then you could just add that turret to this and youd be all ready to go.This 5th Airborne/Sidewinder Combo will provide the benefit of both a 5th airborne air-ride pin box and the automatic turning of the sidewinder pin box. more
