Will a New 5th Wheel Wedge Be Needed For a Sidewinder Pin Box and a Reese OEM 5th Wheel # RP30918


I am thinking of upgrading from a Reese ProSeries 16k hitch to the Reese OE 20k hitch for Ram trucks #RP30918. My trailer is a Grand Design Reflection 337 rls with an Airborne Sidewinder pin box. Will I need to purchase a different wedge block for the Sidewinder to match up with the 20k OE hitch it seems to have a wider throat? Also, do you know the total weight of the 20k hitch and whether or not it can be easily removed from the truck in two pieces? Many thanks for your help.

The wedge needed for the Reese OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30918, is # RP44FR.

The shipping weight of the Reese OEM 5th Wheel is at 186 lbs. The head of the hitch can be removed from the frame if needed to make it easier to move the hitch around.
