Will B&W Patriot Slider 5th Wheel Hitch Fit a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed and 2017 Glacier Peak 28RKS


I am interested in the patriot 18k 5th wheel slider for use with my existing 2014 Ram 2500 Laramie Turbo diesel 4 X 4 6foot 4inch short bed utilizing the B and W custom base rails code: BWRVK2602. I will be purchasing a 2017 Glacier Peak F28RKS Titanium series. The Glacier Peak comes with the Mor/ryde pin box and the front cap is curved back to allow for short bed use. Will this setup work well with my combination of truck and 5th wheel?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The B&W Patriot slider # BWRVK3270 is a great option for your 2014 Ram 2500 short bed and 2017 Glacier Peak 5th wheel trailer.

Installation kit # BWRVK2602 will work too but if the truck has overload springs, which as a 2500 it likely does, the best option is kit # BWRVR3202-00 which was designed for models with overload springs.

I also recommend adding a 7-Way in the bed of the truck using # 41157. This makes hooking up easier without having to use an extension to reach a bumper mounted 7-Way.
