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.

Thank you for letting us know. I have sent your information along to our customer service team.

Review from a similar Sidewinder Wedge Kit in Accessories and Parts


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.

  • How to Determine Correct Sidewinder Replacement Pin Box
    To find the correct Sidewinder what you will need to know is the manufacturer and model number of the pin box on your fifth wheel and match that with the correct replacement, however, the correct part is likely the Sidewinder # RP34FR. This will replace Lippert 0719, 1621 and 1621HD, Fabex 663 and 665, M&M 663 and 665, along with Lippert 1716, 1116, and 0115 pin boxes.

    Yes, you can use the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3300 in the bed of your 2021 Ford F-250 with the Reese Sidewinder # RP34FR. Since The OEM Companion uses 4 mounting points it can handle the turning forces applied to it, where the Turnover Ball Companion only has one mounting point which cannot handle the stress.

  • How to Pick Out Sidewinder for 2012 Keystone Cougar 291RLS
    To pick out the correct Sidewinder pin box we need to know what pin box you have on your trailer currently. From previous questions from people with similar Keystone Cougar 5th wheel trailers I am fairly certain you have the very popular Lippert 1621 pin box which would mean the correct Sidewinder is the part # RP34FR. If you can get back to me with the pin box info you see on the sticker I can verify this. Since you currently have a slider hitch you'll need to keep it slid forward at...

  • Which Wedge for Reese Sidewinder for Use with B and W Patriot Hitch
    For a B and W Patriot hitch the wedge that will fit the best is the # SWW-06 as this is more of a custom fit for the hitch whereas the part # RP74FR is more of a universal fit and wouldn't be quite as tight. I'd see if you see if there's play between the wedge and the hitch head and see if you can adjust it to allow it to fit better.

  • Pivot Arm Placement For The B&W Companion # BWRVK3710 In A 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 6-3/4' Bed
    When installing the pivot arms on your B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000lbs # BWRVK3710 you'll want to ensure that you have 6" of clearance between the bed rails and the nose of your 5th wheel and 16"-24" between the bumper of your truck and the body of your camper. To determine the height you'll measure the height from the ground to the floor of your 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali's bed and subtract it from the height from the ground...

    Let's go ahead and start with the best 5th wheel hitch for your 2020 Ford F-350 short bed with the factory prep package to use with a Sidewinder, which is the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3300. This hitch - which has a 20,000 lb capacity - is considered by most to be the best 5th wheel hitch on the market because of its immense jaws and cushioned bushings, which combine to give you the most comfortable and quiet towing experience possible.

  • Is Reese 5th Airborne Sidewinder Pin Box Compatible with PullRite Super Lite Hitch?
    The PullRite Super Lite 4 point hitch is not compatible with a rotating pin box like the 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret - 16,000 lbs # RP61422. The king pin adapter in that hitch allows too much movement for another pivot point. If you want a lightweight hitch option that is compatible with that style pin box, I recommend the Demco Recon 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - Above Bed - 21,000 lbs # DM8550043 which will weigh just over 100...

  • Recommended Sidewinder Wedge Kit For A B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch
    You can use the universal wedge included with 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret # RP61422, but it's better to use the specific wedge kit for each hitch to eliminate any play with the king pin. For your B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3710 you'll need the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for B&W, Demco, and Husky Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP74FR.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch For 2020 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Puck System & Side Ram Boxes
    There is an option to add a 5th wheel hitch to your 2020 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory puck system and side boxes, though for clearance what you will need is a fixed hitch and a Sidewinder pin box. The Sidewinder will replace your 5th wheel trailer's factory pin box, moving the pivot point back to the turret (instead of the hitch), which allows for enough clearance so your trailer doesn't contact your Ram truck. First, let's get to the hitch, and the best option for your Ram is going...

  • Do I need a fixed or sliding hitch for the Reese Revolution?
    You will need a fixed hitch for your Reese Revolution as it moves the pivot point from over the axle 22" to the rear of the truck. The Reese Revolution is design for short bed trucks but will work with any truck bed length. For the Reese Revolution you will need a wedge that fits the 5th wheel hitch you purchase. Does your Reese Revolution still have the universal wedge that was included with the Reese Revolution? If so, it will fit a variety of options. We recommend the B&W # BWRVK3300....

    To ensure your rotating pin box sits correctly in your B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000lbs # BWRVK3600 you'll just need a wedge to lock the king pin in place so the only movement will be the turret rotating. If you have a Reese Sidewinder # RP77FR or # RP34FR you'll need the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for B&W, Demco, and Husky Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches Item # RP74FR.

  • Recommended Sidewinder for 2021 Wolf Pack 365Pack16
    Thank you for the photo, I reached out to Lippert with that information and they confirmed you have a Lippert 1621 pin box. You can use the Sidewinder # RP34FR as a replacement for that pin box. This will move the pivot point back 22 inches for turning clearance. There is a specific wedge # RP74FR that is compatible with your Demco Hitch, but it does use the 2 bolts to secure in place. We haven't had any issues with the bolted wedges not working perfectly, so I wouldn't hesitate to use...

  • Recommended Reese Sidewinder Wedge for B&W 5th Wheel Hitches
    The # RP74FR wedge you'd mentioned is only compatible with the # RP34FR Sidewinder model. If you don't have that model (it sounds like you do not), you'll want to use the # SWW-06 wedge instead, which is compatible with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3600 hitch that you'd looked at.

  • Can A Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch Be Used On A 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 With A Short Bed?
    Though I typically do recommend a sliding hitch, like the B&W Companion # BWRVK3775, for a short bed truck like your new 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500, I do get that having to get in and out of the truck to make tight turns can be a pain in the butt. With that said, I do have a way around this while being able to stick with the fixed B&W Companion # BWRVK3710. It will require a few other parts though. What you will need to do is upgrade the king pin on your camper to a pivoting style one....

  • Measurement To Determine If A Sliding Hitch Is Needed For A 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed

If you get less than 4", which you most likely will with your Silverado...

The hitch has a thick dual jaw design which grips the kingpin tight thereby providing a smooth ride and a cam-action handle which allows you to uncouple on uneven terrain.

  • Clearance Question with 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    I doubt the Demco Recon 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # DM8550043 will provide the needed clearance for turning with your 6-1/2 foot bed. Without witnessing your arrangement in a turn I can not state that for certain, but for most short bed trucks it is an issue which is why the slide hitch has been developed. Do you have the ability to use a hoist or other style lifting device when removing the hitch? Would the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket, # DM6100, be of value to you? Please review...
