Recommended Slider Base for Reese Titan 5th Wheel Hitch to Allow Turning Clearance for Short Bed

Question:

I currently have a REESE Titan 30867 Fifth Wheel 20000 lb Load Capacity hitch. But I recently traded in my old truck for a truck with a short bed and need a slider. Is there a conversion kit available for the hitch I currently have or would I have to purchase all new? I have a 2017 Ram 3500 with the factory fifth wheel prep. I already have the base adapter. Thanks

For your fixed Reese Titan 5th wheel hitch you can use the Reese Round Tube Slider for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Travel - 20,000 lbs # RP50024 to convert to a slider for your short bed truck to allow turning clearance.

When you use that combination with the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # RP30154 it will be compatible with your 2017 Ram 3500 with the factory rail kit.

You may also want to consider adding a 2nd 7-way to the bed of your truck for easy access. For this, I recommend the Bargman 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Plug # 50-97-410.
