Extended pin box

Do you need a extended pin box on the Cedar Creek with a long bed pickup?

No. The extended pin is actually for short bed pickups. It's to help prevent truck cab-camper contact. I'll be hitching up next month to our new Sabre with my new to me long bed dually. I'm looking forward to it coming from a short bed. Should tow even nicer then I'm used to.

Extended pin box

I towed with a 8 foot dually last year the only difference I noticed was I never once thought about where the window was backing up. As for experience towing will depend what you had prior. I prefer SRW for different reasons but I am not here to hijack. Either way it should be enjoyable any way you look at it.

My 2014 silverback 33RL came with an extended pin box. Like you I have a LWB truck. When I upgraded the pin box to a trailair triglide, I ordered the medium length pinbox. I still have plenty room to hook up the camper to the truck with the tail gate down.

You will have the take measurements though to ensure the medium length will work on your RV.

I plan to install a new pin box before me and DW start riding. I wish I could start now. I just have to decide what pin box to get, I hope whatever pin box I choose I can save 5 inches

I installed a Reese 5th Airborne on our Silverback 31B2. Love it. It was easy to install. Did by myself using truck bed & hitch as pivot points to minimize lifting. I also chose it over the Trail Air Ride because the air bag and shock absorber are not out in direct sunlight/ weather.

Thanks. I will look at the Tri-Glide medium length. I have to take camper to C/W to get something fixed,after I get camper hooked up I will take measurements to see how far tailgate is away from camper. Lippert 1116 may be what I'm looking for

Here is the owner’s manual on the hitch. Inside is a chart with the measurements of each pin box to ensure you gets the correct one.
