Can Ram Truck with Ramboxes Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer


what setup do I need to pull a 42foot 16,000lb 5th wheel with the ram boxes? currently have Anderson ultimate connection hitch in another truck, but want to use the Ram truck. 2015 ram 2500 mega cab with rambox and 2017 42foot 5th wheel camper

The problem with the Ram Box is that is that it puts the rails of the bed too close together and it causes interference with the pin box of the trailer around corners.

We have heard several customers say that with a Sidewinder pin box they were able to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck with a Ram Box. Sidewinders move the pivot point higher so the Ram Box wouldn't interfere.

The only problem is that Sidewinder hasn't officially said that you can use a Sidewinder with a truck with a Ram Box without interference. Because of that we can't safely recommend you attempt to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck like your 2014 Ram Power Wagon with a Ram Box by using a Sidewinder.

I attached an FAQ article on Sidewinders for you to check out.
