I have not experienced any additional "swaying" since going to the Andersen. The other benefit that I have seen is that I don't have the bucking/chucking that I had with the traditional fifth wheel hitch. But, if you don't like "the looks of them" then you should probably select something else. If you don't like them because they are made of aluminum, then you probably shouldn't get on an airplane either.

We went with a gooseneck conversion so no hitch to remove from the truck , so nice the ball is in bed of truck, it is a turnover B&W so takes up no room in bed when not using 5er, the rest stays on the 5er, it is a Reese goose box. We have more space in bed of truck when 5er is hooked up. Also we have no smash up worries with our standard 6'ft bed that has a roll-up metal bed cover with rails on top of bed edges. TV is 2013 Chevy 2500HD.

Will Bought a Curt A20 fifth wheel hitch for the punk system. It only has 3 sets of holes for height adjustment. 13 inches 15inches, and 17 inches. The old hitch was 15 inches tall. The 2020 is 3 inches higher and the box is 2 inches deeper. Trying to set up the hitch. How high to set the hitch. I do have 1 set of holes to lower the pin box. I know that you need 5.5inches between the top of the bed and the bottom of the fifth wheeler. Any help where to start would be great.

Don’t forget to load the trailer as if you’re traveling. Then try hooking up, I have a toy hauler and put a1500 lb bike in the back. It plays a little difference with your pin weight and your angle of ride. Nose high or nose low looks like he’ll going down the road.

It stays mostly loaded. At this point I thinking I am going to need to be in the top holes on the hitch to make up for the deeper box. Just have to put it in and see what needs adjusted. I have a Puma 295BHSSOK which is 34 foot long. Thanks for the info.

7Mike,
Have you measured the height of your hitch in the bed of the truck? If I didn't have the Sidewinder already, I would look in to a different option.
