Years ago I had a fifth wheel hitch installed in the old ford that only rocked fore and aft and I foggily remember the name as bieing 3 letters (one of which was a "B").

I now have the hitch and mounts out and will be switching to a reese that rocks both ways when the replacement truck arrives. I want to advertise the thing but do not know what to label it brand wise. Surely I can do better than the penny a pound for scrap.

Anyone remember these things and what the brand name was?

RBW- It maybe their Little Rocker model.

Had rails on the floor of the pickup bed mounted parallel to the sides of the bed that the hitch slides into.

He's dreaming.

I had one on my F-250, that I traded in a year ago. I couldn't sell it, the dealer didn't want and it went for scrap.

That being said, I really liked that hitch.

RBW made the WORST hitch in history!. The plastic handle was always breaking and if it was not hitched to the 5th wheel perfectly the 5ver would come undone and CRASH on the bed rails of the pickup.

You are, of course, entitled to your opinion.

In 10 plus years I had to replace one handle and never dropped the trailer off the hitch.

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

I used the Little Rocker for years with out issue, The only reason I don't have it today is a neighbor sold his trailer and I bought his 16K Reese slider for $300. Gave the RBW to a friend. He has not had any issues with it.

Incase you decide on buying a hitch, I highly recommend this site. They got all hitches you needed in a reasonable price. They are also easy to deal with.

well i didbpreak one handle in 15 years.

However I don't se how it can come unhitched after that big adz bar slides behind the king pin and makes a huge clank as it closes.
