I have an '08 RAM Cab & Chassis with hauler bed, and need to determine how I will hitch that to a Rockwood 8288WS. I currently use a Colibert Goose Neck Adapter to tow my existing 5th Wheel, and have used that set up for several previous 5th Wheels.
Realizing that using the Goose Neck Adapter "may" void the structural warranty, I am considering installing a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch for conventional 5th Wheel hookup.
I've read a ton of posts regarding the various heights of the Pin Box Plate, and RV Overhang heights, but need to nail the dimensions down.
Here is the Tow Vehicle:
Here are the applicable heights:
Floor to Truck Bed Height is 36-1/2 inches
Floor to Top of Tool Box Height is 51-1/2 inches
These are my options:
Install B&W RVK3000 Companion Hitch, which will result in a hitch plate height of between 51-1/4 and 53-1/4 inches
Install B&W 3050 Companion Flat Bed Hitch, which will result in a hitch plate height of 47 inches
In order to determine which option to pursue, I would like to obtain the following measurements:
1. With the trailer level, the distance (height) from the floor to the Pin Box Plate, and how much adjustment is available with the Pin Box.
2. With the trailer level, the distance from the floor to the 5th Wheel Overhang (portion that extends over the truck bed).
Any assistance is appreciated.
