Is Pullrite Sidewinder Wedge # SWW-09 Compatible with Pullrite SuperGlide 2700 Hitch


Will this wedge work with a pullrite superglide 2700 hitch instead of a capture plate? I have my hitch and I am looking for a used fifth wheel. If I could drill and tap to install this when I buy the Trailer I wont have to leave it with the current owner until I receive the capture plate.


Expert Reply:

The 5th Airborne Custom Wedge # SWW-09 is not designed to be used with your Pullrite SuperGlide 2700 (or any automatic sliding 5th wheel hitch), so I cannot recommend using it instead of a capture plate. A Pullrite Quick Capture Plate is a required component of your SuperGlide hitch system, and from what I understand, it also has a Capture Wedge integrated into the plate, so that's what you'd need to use.

Additionally, Sidewinders cannot be used with the Pullrite SuperGlide hitch. This is because the SuperGlide slides automatically and that travel, coupled with the 22 inch extension of a Sidewinder, creates a dangerous situation and could damage the hitch, trailer, or truck.

If the 5th wheel trailer you're planning on purchasing uses a Sidewinder style pin box, you will need to either replace it with a standard pin box, or use a standard 5th wheel hitch, like the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3200 and custom install kit for your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500, part # BWRVK2600. The 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B&W Fifth Wheels # SWW-06 will provide a much better fit than the universal wedge typically included with a Sidewinder.
