Video Transcript for Review of Reese Fifth Wheel King Pin - Sidewinder Wedge Kit - RP64FR

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Sidewinder wedge kit for the CURT E-Series 5th wheel trailer hitches. Now, you can bolt this wedge onto your Reese Sidewinder to prevent the Sidewinder's king pin from rotating in your CURT E-Series 5th wheel trailer hitch. Now, one note on this, this is only compatible with the Sidewinder part number 68220, which we do so separately on our website. This will not work with any other Sidewinder.

And it is designed to work with the CURT E-Series 5th wheel trailer hitches. Basically, this will bolt onto the bottom of the Sidewinder in place of the universal wedge and it prevents that Sidewinder king pin from pivoting in your hitch. If you notice, it does include the hardware for installation, nice set of instructions that'll describe how to install it. And it does have a nice, durable black powder coat finish to it to help resist rust and corrosion. But that should do it for the review on the Sidewinder wedge kit for the CURT E-Series 5th wheel trailer hitches..

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (18 Customer Reviews)

Bolt this wedge onto your Sidewinder (68220 only) to prevent the Sidewinder's king pin from rotating in your Curt E-Series fifth-wheel trailer hitch.

by:

Having a Ram 3500 Megacab, short bed, I was terribly worried about hitting the cab with my Momentum toy hauler given it's 102" wide. My choice was slider or this Reese Sidewinder. I chose the Sidewinder and darn glad I did. It works as advertised and I can turn a full 90 degrees with about 5" of clearance between the cab and my front nose of the trailer. Some words of caution: this pin box is heavy! Get it professionally installed by your RV dealer. The wedges for your particular hitch will take some getting used too. Move wedge back to hitch, move forward to lock into place. Even still, I need to lay in the bed and have rigged up a heavy wire to assisting getting that wedge tight in the funnel. If you don't, the hitch will move on corners and you feel a big shift of weight.

Bottom line, I like it, it was the right decision for me and didn't take up any more payload than necessary unlike a heavy slider hitch. Recommended! And etrailer delivered on time as promised.

Review from a similar Sidewinder Wedge Kit in Accessories and Parts


I am giving it 3 stars because I was told, by etrailer, I needed it for my Sidewinder pinbox. You do NOT if you are using the pinbox with a Reese hitch. The Sidewinder comes with the Wedge kit bolted to it.

  • Correct Wedge For Curt 5th Wheel Hitch For Reese Sidewinder 68220

There is a specific wedge that is needed for use with the 68220 Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin with Rotating Turret # RP34FR. The correct wedge for Curt 5th wheel hitches with the 68220 Sidewinder is the following: - Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A-Series and E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP64FR This will remedy the issue you are having as it is specifically...

  • Reese Sidewinder Pin Box Wedge With 3/4" Mounting Hardware For a Curt A-Series 5TH Wheel Hitch
    The Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP31016 comes with 5/8" hardware for securing to the older Sidewinder pin box. Since you have the newer Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin # RP34FR you will need the Wedge Kit # RP64FR. This will include the 3/4"-10 bolts that you have on your Sidewinder and fits both the A-Series and E-Series Curt 5th wheel hitches.

  • Replacement Pin Box For A Reese 10K Revolution Pin Box
    The Reese 10k Revolution was a uniquely designed pin box that can only be replaced with another 10k Revolution. Your 10k Revolution is a sidewinder so if you're using a slider it must be locked out. You can unlock it by removing the lock out bolts like you can see in the attached picture and adding on a Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A-Series and E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches Item # RP64FR and locking out your sliding hitch. Doing this will move the pivot point further back than the...

  • Fitment of Sidewinder Pin Box and MoPar M30 5th Wheel Hitch With Ram Box on 2020 Ram 2500
    Yes. You will need a Wedge Kit, # RP64FR too. Curt is the manufacturer of the Mopar branded 5th wheel trailer hitches. The Mopar M30 5th Wheel Hitch uses a Curt head and base specific for the Ram OEM Prep Package. The 5th wheel hitch head is the same as our part number, # C16590. You will want to use the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A-Series and E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP64FR on the Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin, # RP34FR that you linked to.

  • Can Curt Q Series Fifth Wheel Hitch be Used with Sidewinder Pin Box
    There isn't a wedge that will work with the Q Series of Curt hitches as that hitch is not designed to be used with a Sidewinder. The stress of the Sidewinders ends up damaging the head of the hitch and is partially why Curt came out with the A Series of hitches like the # C16120 which can be used with a Sidewinder like # RP64FR with the wedge # RP31016.

  • Recommended Sidewinder And 5th Wheel Hitch For A 2016 Ram 3500 And Grand Design Momentum 5th Wheel
    For the fifth wheel hitch I recommend the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 25,000lbs # C16180 with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ram # C16430-204. This hitch has a 3-point indicator system that shows you if hitch is ready to uncouple, couple, or tow and is visible from the cab of your truck so you don't have to get out to check. It has a 25,000lbs GTW and interlocking 2 jaw system that provides 360 degree contact with the king pin of your pin box. This rail...

  • Is There a Wedge that Can be Used with Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The Curt Q series of fifth wheel hitches actually shouldn't be used with any pivoting pin boxes like the Turning Point or the Sidewinder. The way the head pivots and the jaw/head head design just doesn't hold up well to the different stresses that the pivoting pin boxes put on the hitches. This is partially why Curt updated the Q series hitches to the A series like the part # C16120 which is an A16 hitch. For this hitch you'd have to use the wedge part # RP64FR with either a Turning Point...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2020 Ram 3500 with RamBox
    The fifth wheel hitch I recommend for a 2020 Ram 3500 with RamBox is the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16180 which will require the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16430-204. The Curt A25 has a dual interlocking jaw design which grips the kingpin tight and produces a smooth ride. The head can also be removed to help with install and removal. Please note, the RamBox feature will require that you install a rotating pin box on the trailer to ensure there is no...

  • Best Gooseneck Pin Box for a 2017 Keystone Raptor 425TS w/ a Lippert 1116 Pin Box
    I would be happy to help you and thanks for the information! I just heard back from Lippert and you have an 1116 pin box. Your 2017 Keystone Raptor 425TS has a maximum capacity of almost 20,000 lbs so I would definitely recommend going with the Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box item # GY43FR. This is the only Gen-Y that fits your Lippert 1116 pin box and it has a 21,000 lbs capacity. It has a pin weight scale built in to help you balance your trailer. You will...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 With RamBox
    The factory puck system is not an aftermarket option so there is no way to obtain one on your 2019 Ram 3500, and there isn't an underbed option, but you can still add a 5th wheel hitch to your truck. You will need above-bed rails to do so, and since you have the RamBoxes, a Sidewinder is required as well in order to obtain the needed clearance so the pin box does not hit the RamBoxes. For a 5th wheel hitch you'll need one compatible with a Sidewinder, and for a hitch and base rails I recommend...

    I checked with Curt and can verify that the Curt Custom, No-Drill Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford F-150 # C16442 does fit your 2020 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed. These brackets do require Curt base rails, and you can choose from either a gloss finish or carbide black finish. - Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Carbide Black Finish # C16204 - Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Gloss Finish # C16104 I have added links to video reviews of the rails as well as the Curt...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Options For 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed With RamBox For Light 5th Wheel
    We can get your 2019 Ram 2500 short bed with RamBoxes set up with a 5th wheel hitch, and you'll need a fixed hitch instead of a slider because your 5th wheel trailer will require a Sidewinder rotating pin box. A Sidewinder moves the pivot point from the hitch jaws to the turret, and without it you won't be able to make turns because a standard pin box will contact your RamBoxes. That said, since you asked for options, for a 5th wheel hitch, here are the two that I highly recommend for...

  • What Is Needed to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer With 2020 Ford F-150 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    You can tow a 5th wheel with your 2020 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed, but you will need a standard/fixed 5th wheel hitch and a Sidewinder rotating pin box. The reason for that is the Sidewinder will move the pivot point back to the turret, which allows for the needed clearance so your 5th wheel trailer does not crash into your F-150's cab. The correct Sidewinder will depend on your 5th wheel trailer's pin box model number, as you'll need that in order to know the correct fit. For a...

    There are a pair of custom 5th wheel base rail and installation kits that fit your 2020 Ram 1500 with an EcoDiesel Engine and 5-1/2 foot bed, from Demco and Reese. You can choose from either, though the Demco rails do NOT fit if your '20 Ram 1500 has the factory Air Suspension system, while the Reese WILL fit if you have the Air Suspension system. - Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552032-71 - Reese Quick-Install...

  • Parts Needed To Pull A 2016 Palomino Sabre With a 2019 Ram 2500 RamBox Bed With Factory Prep/Puck
    Since you have the RamBox on your 2019 Ram 2500 you will have to go in a different direction than what would traditional be done on a truck with a short bed. This is due to the shorter distance that you have between your bed rails. On your 2016 Palomino Sabre you will need to install a Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin # RP34FR. This changes your pivot point on your 5th wheel hitch from the hitch to pin box mount itself. The reason you need this is so that your pin box does not contact...

  • Can Curt A20 5th Wheel Head Unit Replace Curt Q20 Head Unit for Use With Sidewinder
    I reached out to Curt about this, and what they told me was that the Q20 and A20 use different legs with different mounting, so the Head Unit for Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16540 will not fit on the Q20 legs. So because the Q20 is not compatible with a Sidewinder, what you will need is to replace your Q20 with the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140. You can certainly sell the Q20 to offset some of the cost of a new hitch, but the clearance benefits you get from the Sidewinder...

  • Are The Curt Q-Series Fifth Wheel Hitches Compatible With Sidewinder Pin Boxes
    The little tech note on Reese's page is worded a bit misleadingly. The Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP64FR you were looking at is only compatible with the Curt E-Series hitches, which is why it says not to use with the A-Series. The Q-Series hitch heads are not compatible with the stress that a Sidewinder would put on it which is why we list it as not compatible.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Pin Box for 2016 Nissan Titan XD
    If I understand correctly, you have a Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16115 mounted in the back of a 2016 Nissan Titan XD (6.5 foot bed?). You have a Lippert 1621 Pin Box, # LC1387883, on your 5th wheel but not enough clearance for the cab. I get the impression that you have the hitch mounted on Base Rails such as # C16200. If you have a short bed truck you need, at minimum, the Curt E16 Hitch # C16115, mounted on the Curt R16 Round Tube Slider for E16 Hitches, # C16560. Another...
