Is Rota Flex Pin Box Extended?


I have the Demco highjacker 18k autoslide #8550023. I want to purchase a lippert Roto flex pin box but I need to be sure its an extended one. Does this pin box come as an extended one? The one on my trailer now is the slippery 1621. My driveway is tight,all my previous fifth wheels had extended pin boxes with this hitch and I never had any problem. Thankyou


Expert Reply:

The Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC328330 that is a replacement for your Lippert 1621 is not an extended pin box.

You cannot use an extended pin box such as a Sidewinder with a Demco Hijacker Autoslide because using an extended pin box with this hitch changes the pivot point, creating an unstable and unsafe towing situation.

To use the Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC328330 with your Hijacker you do need the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Capture Plates for Trailair Rota-Flex Pin Boxes # DM6171.
