Customer Q&A - Reese 61452

I have a 2013 ford 5.5 ft. shortbed truck with a 2013 cougar 5th wheel. does the sidewinder have an automatic adjustment to slide the king pen to allow greater turning radius?

The sidewinder king pin kits come with a wedge that stops rotation at the 5th wheel and moves it rearward to allow for tighter turns. There is no sliding mechanism built into the sidewinder king pins.

does it come in 20,000 pound version

The highest weight capacity Reese makes the Sidewinder in is a 19,000 LB option and those are non air ride versions. Feel free to all us at 1-800-358-4751 if you have any other questions.
