Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 to Use with Sidewinder Pin Box


I would like to use the Reese Sidewinder pin box on our Grand Design Reflection 311BHS. What hitch is compatible with the Sidewinder? I would also love to use the factory puck system in my 2018 Ram 2500 with no rails. I dont want an auto slider because they are so heavy so the lighter the hitch is the better. Thanks

To connect with a Reese Sidewinder Pin Box on your Grand Design Reflection 311BHS I highly recommend the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP37FR. This hitch is compatible with the Sidewinder and it's designed specifically to drop right into the factory pucks on your Ram 2500.

The M5 features an always-ready Talon jaw system that creates an extremely secure connection with the trailer. Its fully articulating head greatly eases hookup since you don't have to be perfectly level (or on line). It has a robust 27,000 pound towing weight capacity.

I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

If you don't yet have the Sidewinder Pin Box picked out yet you just need to make sure that it's designed to replace the factory pin box model on your Grand Design. This info is usually located right on the pin box itself with a sticker. For example the Reese 5th Airborne Sidewinder # ST400-5AS16K you were looking at is designed to replace the Leland 7910, 7920, 7921 and the Dexter 221-0037 model pin boxes.

I have attached a link that will take you to our complete selection.
