Great Fifth Wheel Hitch That Helps Prevent Chucking.


Hi, I am looking for a fifth wheel hitch that will reduce chucking in the cab. I have a 36 Keystone cougar with a Lippert air ride king pin. My truck is 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 diesel with a short bed with above the bed rails. Thank you,

That's a great question and I have a solution for you.

I can tell you that the chucking you feel is because of a loose jaw connection on the 5th wheel head. You need a full 360 degrees of solid contact to help reduce chucking.

**B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs # BWRVK3270.

The B and W does just that. This model has a 18k weight rating and 360 degrees of contact on the kingpin. It will fit industry standard rails.

If you need above the bed rails or have the OEM prep package, reply back to this email with the year make and model of your truck and I can get you the exact parts you need.
