Can 2018 Ram with Ram Box Tow Fifth Wheel Hitch


What is the best setup for my truck that has Ram Boxes and does not have the factory pucks? Ram 3500 limited 4x4 crew cab


Expert Reply:

The only solution for towing a fifth wheel trailer with a Ram Box truck so that you can make turns without interference is a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer.

The problem with the Ram Box is that is that it puts the rails of the bed too close together and it causes interference with the pin box of the trailer around corners.

We have heard several customers say that with a Sidewinder pin box they were able to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck with a Ram Box. Sidewinders move the pivot point higher so the Ram Box wouldn't interfere.

I attached an FAQ article on Sidewinders for you to check out.

You'd need to use then a fixed hitch like the part # RP30047 and for a rail kit you'd then want a custom fit fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50085-58 which would install easier and minimize drilling.
