Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a short bed truck and need more clearance between your cab and the nose of your fiver to make up to 90-degree turns
  • Find your stuff inside the RV all jumbled and want to save your truck, trailer, and your passengers from being beat up by bad roads
  • Haul things in your truck bed while towing and don't want to have to worry about the pin box swinging back and forth over your stuff

No, if you:

  • Get annoyed by having one more thing to check before hitting the road - the air pressure on this needs to be monitored and adjusted
  • Tow with a B&W Companion, Andersen Ultimate Hitch, PullRite SuperGlide, Curt Q-Series 5th-wheel hitch, or a gooseneck adapter
  • Don't have the patience to line up your truck just so with the trailer to make the connection
5th Airborne Sidewinder replaces your fifth-wheel trailer's king pin and alters the pivot point of your rig, enabling you to make up to 90-degree turns.

  • 5th-Wheel trailer's pivot point is moved an extra 22" toward the rear of your tow vehicle so that you can easily make 90-degree turns, even with a short-bed pickup truck
    • No need to get out of your truck, throw a switch, push a button or mount a 5th-wheel slider

    • Decreases vertical shock by 44 percent
    • Relieves stress on coach frame
    • Reduces vibration inside coach, protecting its contents
  • Air bag can be repositioned with 2 easy-to-access screws to better support varying loads
    • Move forward for light tongue weights
    • Move backward for heavy tongue weights
  • Sidewinder-and-turret assembly bolts onto your 5th-wheel trailer pin box
  • King pin connects to standard 5th-wheel trailer hitch and allows easy hookup and disconnect at any angle
  • Included locking wedge prevents king pin from rotating
    • Some 5th-wheel hitches may require custom wedge (sold separately)
  • 1-Piece, streamlined construction
  • C-Channel design of the Sidewinder provides more stability and strength than standard pin box
    • Able to support heavier loads


Specs:

  • Designed for use with the following pin boxes:
    • Fabex 500, 503, 520, 530, 560 and 765
    • Lippert 1116, 1716 and 0115
    • RBW 7019 and 7028
  • Weight capacity: 16,000 lbs
  • Clearance: see formula below to ensure proper clearance
  • 3-Year limited warranty


Clearance Formula

Use the formula below to ensure that there will be enough space between your truck cab and trailer when you are executing a 90-degree turn with the 5th Airborne Sidewinder installed.


(A + B) - C = Clearance

A = Distance from center of 5th-wheel hitch jaw to truck cab in inches

B = Length of Sidewinder arm in inches (22")

C = Width of trailer in inches divided by 2


For example:

If you are using the 16,000-lb 5th Airborne Sidewinder, then B = 22"

If the distance from the center of your hitch to your truck's cab is 36", then A = 36"

And if your fifth-wheel trailer is 102" wide, then C = 51"

102/2 = 51

Therefore,

(36 + 22) - 51 = 7" of clearance


The 5th Airborne Air Ride Coupler with Sidewinder

16K 5th Airborne Sidewinder Diagram
  1. The rotating turret attaches to the pin box on your trailer to provide a new pivot point 22" behind the king pin.
  2. The rear mounted, heavy-duty shock absorber reduces chucking and relieves stress on your trailer frame.
  3. The air spring can be adjusted to provide a smooth ride for both your truck and trailer. Because it is fully enclosed, it's protected from UV exposure and shielded from road hazards.
  4. The reversible, adjustable king pin locking wedge (not pictured) prevents pivot at the 5th-wheel hitch.
  5. The king pin connects to the 5th-wheel trailer hitch in your truck bed.

Up to 90-Degree Turning

90 Degree Turns with 5th Airborne Sidewinder

It is now possible to turn your short-bed truck 90 degrees without having to worry that your trailer will collide with the cab of your truck. The universal king pin locking wedge included with this Sidewinder prevents your trailer from turning or pivoting at the fifth-wheel hitch. Instead, the rotating turret at the end of the Sidewinder allows turning and pivoting to take place an additional 22 inches away from the cab.

Custom King Pin Locking Wedges: The included universal wedge prevents the king pin from rotating in most fifth-wheel trailer hitches. Certain hitches, however, require a custom wedge (sold separately).


Note: Do not use the 5th Airborne Sidewinder with any of the following:

  • Curt Q5 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • PullRite SuperGlide 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • Reese Trail Boss 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • B&W Companion 5th-wheel trailer hitches that mount in the Turnoverball gooseneck hole
  • Colibert 208BW 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • Hi-Rise gooseneck-to-5th-wheel adapter by Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Bulldog and Reese
  • Any other gooseneck-to-5th-wheel adapter


Note: It is recommended that if sitting idle for more than a week, the air springs be drained to relieve pressure on the system.

5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret - 16,000 lbs - RP61412

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (81 Customer Reviews)

5th Airborne Sidewinder replaces your fifth-wheel trailer's king pin and alters the pivot point of your rig, enabling you to make up to 90-degree turns. Enclosed air spring in pin box absorbs shock and adjusts for a smooth ride.

by:

This kingpin is awesome! Short bed fifth wheel towing solved. I tow with a Crewmax Tundra and I never worry about hitting the cab. This pin solves the need to have a slider hitch (which are heavy, cumbersome and expensive. I needed to watch my weights as well since I tow with a 1/2 ton. No additional weight with replacing the pin. The ride is great too having the shock absorber and air bag in the pin box. Can't say enough good things about it. Once the wedge is set and aligned properly, you are set. Only negative is you need to drop and hook up straight on. It doesn't work well when dropping/hooking at an angle. I keep a torque wrench and a 5/8" socket with me in case I need to adjust the turret back to the "straight" position.

This king pin has been one of the best purchases for hauling my fifth wheel with a short bed ram with ramboxes.


Comments
Ive pulled my 5th wheel about 6,000 miles with the sidewinder. I do seem to have to add air everytime I hook it, but the ride quality is great and the maneuverability has made my purchase hands down the best upgrade I did to my fifth wheel.

I have received the Reese airborne, installed the turret, have not put it on the trailer yet. Will do next week (29th). Right now I am very happy after looking it over. Thankyou.

Great pinbox, I have recomenended it on face book many times.I hope the persons looked into the Airborne and purchased it.

After having used the 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret for about 7,500 miles (one year of towing for me), I would not recommend this pinbox setup unless it was absolutely necessary for your application.

PROs: It does provide a nice ride quality (albeit with the occasional odd popping noise) and provides additional clearance for shortbed trucks (and the ability to pull a fifth wheel with a RamBox equipped Ram Pickup).

CONs: Poor quality. The turret is not completely square, it requires consistent maintenance for it to operate smoothly and the directions I received with the packaging was not clear (and did not match the posted online instructions which were more up to date). Also, as with all the recent Reese products I have purchased, the powder coat/paint was damaged on delivery and easily flakes off over time.




by:

I am very happy with this Sidewinder. No more having to slide my hitch in order to get my trailer out of storage. The only trick is making sure you are lined up with the pin box so the wedge engages correctly. You can hook up at any angle by just pushing the pin box so it lines up with your approach angle. It takes a little more time, but it is far easier than using an auto-slider.

Once you are hooked up, you no longer have to worry about tight turns or backing into spaces.




by:

This item works as described. Diana in sales was awesome to work with and made sure they had the right parts I needed for my rig after Reese told me what parts I needed for my rig. I can't compare it to other kingpins as I haven't had a 5th wheel in 20 years. I will say that for my rig, this is perfect. I'm pulling with a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed with the Ram boxes. I called Reese and they told me exactly what parts I needed to order from Diana to set this up correctly for my truck. I can turn tight angles and have no worries at all.




by:

This pin box installed quite easily. Set in on a HD lift on the tailgate of my pickup. Lifted it up in place nicely. Completely solves my short bed turning radius. Highly recommended.




by:

Excellent product! Nice ride, easy hook up! I almost bought the Pull Rite 12K model 3100. When I saw it weighed 350lbs, I looked for a better solution. The Sidewinder was the answer! No compromise!




by:

Installed easily and works great. The amount of maneuverability that this allows is almost unbelievable. Thanks for the videos as well. If you don't have one you don't know what you are missing.




by:

A great purchase. The shock absorber removed virtually all of the chucking. What little that is left is very mild and generally only one bounce.

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


Love this pin box. The air ride provides the smoothest towing ride for our 36ft 5th wheel as well as our Chevy 2500HD High County over this rough spots and rail road tracks. This is our 2nd one as we just sold our last 5th wheel and felt we just had to have this same smooth ride with our newest RV. I’ve got to add that the sales and support by Tara G. Was outstanding, very knowledgeable and super friendly service. Many thx

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


I like my airborne fifth wheel air ride coupler. Every thing inside out of the sun clean and neat looking. the best part is when there (some boon docking ) all the draws and cabinets are closed. A bad dip and bump is nearly smoothed out about five miles from home. Not worried about damaging 5th wheel. More relaxed drive. Yes it leaks some no big deal just like checking the tires. glade I did it!

We just recently were able to take the 5th wheel out for a trip after installing the air ride coupler. Our ride was soooo much better, no more jerking in the cab and things bouncing round in the trailer. So glad that we made the purchase.

Still love it! So glad that we purchased it.

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin



This Airborne Kingpin box works great!
Our
hitch location in second-hand truck seems located in less than ideal position. This resulted in lots of "bucking & chucking" but Air-ride has changed it to gentle float at worse.

Great product at fair price!

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


The air valve stem would not accept air. Replaced the valve core to correct the problem. Fiberglass fairing on LongHorn 5th wheel would not fit new king pin box as it is longer that the original one. Just finished about 3500 miles with this new King Pin box, finding the ride somewhat improved, especially on rough freeway often found going through big cities. Did installation myself by first pushing box onto hitch, then using truck positioning and trailer jacks, was able to get box into correct position. Later repeated the exercise to lower the box one row of bolt holes to better match original king pin height.

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


Air fill valve was damaged in shipment ( as mentioned in many reviews). Etrailer had mfg send a new one overnight. I suggest that you ship with the fill valve not installed, having the customer install it when attaching to 5th wheel. Mfg sticker specifies that the attaching bolts be torqued to 200 ft. Lbs. Had to rent a torque wrench to install, thanks to my nephew, he was able to to apply enough pressure to achieve that setting. Hard for an old retired person to exert that much force.

Now the good stuff. We traveled from California to New York. By the time we got there, my back was in bad shape due to the severe chucking. Ordered the pin box to be delivered to one of our Campground stops. We're now half way home, and my back is not hurting at all. Chucking is gone, great product!

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


I received this just in time to install on our Reflection 303RLS before our winter trip to Bosque del Apache in New Mexico. Installation wasn't too difficult; I mainly did it myself with a little help from my wife and a lot of help from a hydraulic jack in my truck bed to hold one end in place. I tested it out on a short 15 mile tow with my Ford F250 and adjusted the air bag position and air pressure around 100 psi to get a nice ride. Now, after towing over 2000 miles of highways of varying quality, I can definitely report that the ride has been improved substantially. Also, I did not have to add any air over two full days of towing in each direction, so earlier leak problems seem to have been solved.

Just to clarify, my ride problem has always been up and down motion on uneven road surfaces, even on some interstates with bumpy lanes due to heavy truck traffic. I never experienced "chucking" problems, either with the old Lippert kingpin box or this new Reese Airborne box. With the improved ride that I experienced on this most recent trip, I am much more relaxed when driving these bumpy or wavy roads, and my wife is much happier not to hear my grumbling about poor highway maintenance!

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


Very well made pin box. Only had it on my 5th wheel for a month & traded the rig for a new 2017 fiver. It worked GREAT for the two trips we had it on the trailer. I removed this Reese pin box thinking that I may use it on my new rig, but the new fiver came with a similar air suspension box, so this one has been sitting in my garage for 10 months.
Anyone want a “like new” Reese air ride pin box for $400.00, please let me know.

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


What a difference the ride makes. Don't even know 5th wheel is behind us especially going over rough roads. No more chucking after hitting bumps. Well worth the investment. Easy to install. Highly recommend.

Review from a similar Airborne Premium King Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


I purchased this based on price and reviews I read. Definitely helps with the ride! Alot less bucking and chucking over dips and bridge crossings. I did have to do a bit of tinkering with air pressure in the bag and location of the bag to get the ride right. This is the reason I didn't give it 5 stars. Access to the lower air bag bolts are a pain to get at. Luckily I'm an auto technician and have a wide variety of tools to do it. I don't know how anyone would do this with a basic rachet without a flex head. If Reese ever redesigns this pin box they should add some access holes to the bottom for this adjustment. Only other issue is small.....the pin box interferes with my b&w release pin. Not a big deal, just have to put the lock pin in upside down. This box extends further past the pin

  • Can a Sidewinder be Locked Out so the Trailer Will Pivot at the Hitch
    The turret can be locked out so the Sidewinder, # RP61412, will pivot at the hitch. You will first need to make sure the wedge at the bottom of the Sidewinder is removed so it can pivot at the hitch. Then you will look under the turret. There will be 2 bolts or just bolt holes. These holes are for two 3/4 inch grade 5 bolts and nuts and will prevent the turret from rotating. Take a look at the instructions I have linked on page 6 for more on the lock out feature.

  • What Would Cause Noise And Excessive Tightness On A Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin With Turret
    The Sidewinder can be very tight when they are first installed, but will move more freely after use. As the installation instructions show, there are several places where it is advised to lubricate as a regular maintenance. If your Sidewinder, part # RP61412, has the lock out bolts in place, you will want to remove them. I spoke with my contact at the manufacturer and he said that it will be very stiff and you will need to loosen the bolts holding the cap in place and use spray white lithium...

Most king pins will have the pin box number listed on a sticker or stamped on the king pin itself.

If not, then I recommend switching to a Sidewinder pin box like the Fifth Airborne Premium King Pin, part # RP61412, with a weight capacity of 16,000 lbs.

Sidewinders can not be used on hitches that only have a center attachment point. They can only be used on hitches that use 4 points of attachment. The Sidewinder couplers will work well with all fifth wheel hitches, except for the following hitches: - PullRite Super Glide - Reese Trail...

  • Can a 2015 Ram 2500 with a 16k Reese Hitch To a 33 ft Cameo Fifth Wheel Trailer
    Your trailer that weighs 12k has a pin box installed on that has a 21k capacity. You are totally fine to tow as-is as long as your truck owners manual says you can tow the weight of your trailer. You will also need to consider the weight of the setup when it is fully loaded and ready to tow.

If you don't have a sliding hitch, you'll barely be able to make any kind of a turn without damaging the truck and the trailer.

  • Replacement Pin Box Recommendation for an RBW 7028 for Short Bed Truck Turning Clearance

This will move the pivot point back 22 inches which will allow you to make sharp turns with your short bed truck. The Sidewinder pin boxes were designed for exactly what you are trying to do.

  • Sidewinder Pin Box for a 5th Wheel Trailer with Fabex 765 Pin Box
    An air ride pin box alone is not going to give you any additional front to back clearance, or height. What you need is a Sidewinder for front to back clearance. There is an option available that will fit in place of a Fabex 765 pin box. The 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret - 16,000 lbs # RP61412. Sidewinders move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches and will provide much more clearance when making tight turns. If the issue is vertical...
