RE: Turning Point pin boxes on new campers!

Had a phone conversation with Forest River Rep for a brand they make. The pinboxes are indeed not changeable or adjustable verically. they can be replaced by dealer but only with Turning Point OEM replacement. Lippert calculated an average height measurement for pin box plate. On one brand with camper level-49.5"(my tape measure from ground). With 17 inch hitch (b&w low setting), my STOCK dodge is 53". letting my truck down to level camper means truck not level. Makers have written off a small RVer segment who want short and light fifth wheels. Unless of course you pull a 9000lb with a 1/2 ton truck. Indeed possible, as that is what these new short 5th wheels are made for with non adjustable hitch, but 1. not buying new truck and 2. pull that thru mountains with 1/2 ton. B&W, Curt and others do allow wedge on specific hitches. Not single point hitch due to stresses though.

RE: Turning Point pin boxes on new campers!

Cougar kitchen storage (ie pantry) was an issue for wife (happy wife, happy life). Any concerns in that way in your experience. We are planning a return trip to Keystone considering turning point issues.

RE: Turning Point pin boxes on new campers!

Unfortunatly manufacture will not ok removal of pin box and Lippert made Turning Point Pin boxes oem only. They will not match any other pin box as they will not bolt up. I am perplexed due to our search being for shorter lighter 5th wheels. After further searches I found major brands beginning this trend.

Turning Point pin boxes on new campers!

We are looking at new 5th wheels and have discovered manufactures are using Lippert turning point pin boxes that cannot be changed or adjusted. I run air bag hitch to smooth out ride. Very limited, to no adjustment available. Our last two 5th wheels we leveled camper by raising pin box to lower camper to level. Height problems had me walk away from two 5th wheels due to no options on pin boxes. Why would manufactures limit RVers choices like that? Any solutions or experience with Turning Point pin boxes on newer 5th wheels known?
