Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Sidewinder Pin Box for 2017 Titan XD Diesel 6.5 Bed


I need to purchase a hitch for a fifth wheel. My truck is a 2017 Titan XD diesel with a 6.5 bed. I would like the hitch to be removable if possible. The Titan XD comes with gooseneck capability if that factors into your advise. The fifth wheel I intend to purchase is 8400lbs. My titan tow rating is for 11,700 lbs. Is having a 6.5 bed an obstacle? Thank you.

For a 2017 Nissan Titan XD, we have the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Nissan Titan XD Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16520-16026 which is a removable hitch. For use in a 6-1/2 Foot Bed, I recommend using a Sidewinder which will be pin box specific to your trailer to give you the turning clearance necessary.

I've attached a link to assist. This will give you 22 inches from the secured king pin to the rotating turret to provide adequate clearance.
