Hitch bed saver

I have a 18K Fifth Wheel Hitch - Select Plus - by Reese. I am trying to source a Bed saver for this hitch. It appears that there is none for this type of hitch. Would anyone know of any that is available for this Reese hitch. possibly how to refit a different model to fit the Select Plus

Andrew was asking about a bedsaver for his Select Plus hitch and Reese states 18K-20K-22K (No 18K Select Plus) on your second link. I myself would love to have that bedsaver that fits the Draw-tite Signature series but they say it wouldn't fit with an aftermarket pinbox.
We can't win!

I saw the no fit, but was wondering if he could retro-fit one of these to work on his hitch. I am not familiar with the select plus hitch. I wonder what is so different that they can not build a bedsaver for it?

If you haven't called Blue Ox in reference to being able to have a Bed Saver designed for you, and see if just maybe they may be building one for you hitch.

I had the Bed Saver once upon a time, and it will for sure work. I went to a Trailer Saver and they didn't offer one for the TS. I now have the B&W system and really have no need for a Bed Saver. They are a good back up just for the feel good feeling. But most all 5th wheel hitches I have seen are very safe if you follow the proper hook-up procedures. Good Luck on you search. GBY....

Thanks Doug and Sharon;

I guess when I went to the site I missed it. Also when I had called Blue Ox they told me they did not have. i guess they now do. Thanks I appreciate.

The Big word GBY is IF! I've worked over 20 years as an over the road driver and have seen a lot of drops including myself because of distractions. You never know!
