Recommendation for Fifth Wheel Hitch on a 2010 Dodge Ram Crew Cab With 5 Foot 7 Inch Bed  


I own a 2010 dodge ram with crew cad so the bed is 5ft 7inchs long. Can i get a hitch that will work with this truck?


Expert Reply:

Since you have a 2010 Dodge Ram Crew Cab short bed truck which measures under 6 foot, you will need to use a Sidewinder King Pin with Rotating Turret with a fixed fifth wheel hitch. A Sidewinder will move the pivot point of the trailer rearward 22 inches and provide the needed clearance to make turns. You will need to order the Sidewinder with a rotating turret specific to your fifth-wheel trailer pin box.

If you can send me the make and model number of the fifth-wheel pin box on your fifth wheel, I would be glad to recommend the correct Sidewinder.

You will need to use a fixed fifth-wheel hitch like the Reese 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30928, with a Sidewinder.

To install the Reese # RP30928 fifth wheel hitch on your 2011 Dodge Ram Crew Cab with 5 foot 7 inch bed you will need the Reese Fifth-Wheel Installation Kit, part # RP30035-386. Installation of the Reese install kit involves measuring, and drilling.
