Can 2019 Ram 2500 with RamBoxes Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer


Do you have a kit that will work with this 2500 Ran with boxes and slide rails pre installed for tinned cover


Expert Reply:

There is a way to tow a trailer with your 2019 Ram 2500 short bed that has the RamBox cargo system but you will have to install a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer. Standard pin boxes when turning would contact the bedrails and damage them but with the Sidewinder the pivot point is moved up above the bed rails which prevents contact.

Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one.

There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer.

Once you figure out which pin box you have you can check the FAQ I attached that has a chart that shows the correct Sidewinder to get based on which pin box you have.

You'll also need a fifth wheel rail kit for your truck which for that a custom install kit is the way to go like the Demco # DM8552025-71. Custom kits minimize install time and frame drilling.

Then for a hitch we have the Reese M5 part # RP30928 which is a fixed hitch with a great jaw design that provides a quiet and smooth ride quality. To allow this hitch to fit the Sidewinder the best you'd want the part # SWW-01.
