Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2022 Ram 1500 Non-EcoDiesel, 6-1/2 Foot Bed


I bought Forest River 240 r e with a rhino box Kingpin box. Its a narrow box and I was wondering if you were familiar with that Rhino box and which hitch I need to buy for it thanks

For your 2022 Ram 1500 non-EcoDiesel engine with a 6-1/2 Foot Bed, I suggest the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider, # RP30075 using the Reese Quick-Install Kit, # RP56018-53. This hitch provides excellent jaw-to-king-pin contact with a 2-jaw latching system. I prefer the non-binding, round-tube slider of this model to the square tube option. This 16K hitch has a 4-Way pivoting head that eases hookup on even on unlevel ground. The Vertical load limit is 4,000 lbs. with an installed hitch height, including rails of 15" to 18" (3" height adjustment). This will work well with your Forest River 240RE as the specs online show it to be a hitch weight of 1,350 lbs. with a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of just under 13K.
