Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed with RamBox


I bought a 2019 Ram 2500 short bed and I want to tow a 5th wheel trailer but I'm seeing conflicts when I research because I have the RamBox. Is there a way I can do this or am I out of luck?

The RamBox is an issue when it comes to 5th wheel towing like what you've been reading but you came to the right place because we have a solution for you!

What you need is a Sidewinder pin box on your 5th wheel trailer and then to use a stationary 5th wheel hitch on your 2019 Ram 2500 short bed. A Sidewinder has a rotating turret so the place where your trailer pivots is above your truck bed rails which means the pin box won't make contact with your RamBox. For a 5th wheel kit I highly recommend the Curt A20 # C16140 with the Custom Fit Base Rail Kit # C16427-204 and then the Custom Wedge # C16992 (for the best fit with the Sidewinder pin box).

Attached is a link to our selection of Sidewinder pin boxes so all you have to do is select your pin box number to get to the correct Sidewinder options. For example, the 5th Airborne Premium # RP61422 uses the Sidewinder feature along with an air bag kit to further enhance your towing experience and is a replacement for the popular 0719, 1621, and 1621HD pin boxes. I have also attached a link to a helpful article that shows how to determine what pin box you have if you don't have a sticker on the side that tells you outright. I'd also be more than happy to help you figure out what pin box you have if you can send me a picture of the sticker!
