If you get a sidewinder (turret) type pin box, you can use most any standard hitch.

If the loaded fiver pin weight is below the loaded truck payload you could mount the hitch a little behind the axle. A friend does that with no problem

ventrman, Reese makes the Sidewinder. I have the one with the air bag included. They are very nice. I got mine from the dealer I bought my 5th wheel from but you can get them from any reputable RV place including etrailer.

I asked him to do one thing and he didn't do any of them.

pullRite
Check out the PullRite super lite at around 50 lbs. Similar design as the Andersen hitch.

That would certainly be a great option, I prefer the Andersen only because I wouldn't have to get up into the bed to lock the handle like on that PullRite. The locking handle on the Andersen attaches to the pin box, and can be accessed from the rear of the truck, without having to get into the bed . Reached from just standing on the ground.

X2 (only mine is in a Chevy)

With the right pin box clearance to side rails and bed, the Andersen can give you approximately 9" more distance from the cab.

Can you post a picture of the hitch so I can get the right one? Thanks.
