Just wanted to remind you of what I replied in your pin box deflection post before you bought the Sidewinder. It may not hold true with your fiver since it is a bit shorter, but the Sidewinder may seem to bow from fiver frame to pin box kingpin when hooked to your truck. It was very evident on my friend's 40'er. It has worked for him so far although.
Did you get the one with the air ride puck?

I had that in mind when I decided to go ahead.
I do not think my actual pinbox deflection is very significant when I connect to the truck.
When I took measurements using a post and floor jack to lift the trailer off the front jacks it was really hard to get an accurate measure of the movement.
The pin plate probably lifted about 1/2 inch at the end. the hitch back by the bolts moved about less than 1/8".
The appearance while hitched looks like it should be more but there you have to take in perspective, truck now level, trailer higher/lower in front, background etc.
I'm going to hookup with the new hitch (Demco Recon) this week and see where I am level wise.
The pullrite hitch is a great hitch don't get me wrong. I also have a rolltop bed cover and the pullrite fixed height puts the rear edge of the morryde into the rolltop rails on the side when making a tight turn. Also the pullrite puts the rear edge of the pinbox into the rear corners of the bed when turning and that is where I put my generator. With the sidewinder I can put the genny back in the bed and out of the trailer compartment thereby reducing the pin weight.

BTW, my friend has a Forrest River 5er pulled by a long bed. He bought a short bed RAM like mine and needed a pullrite. While camping I looked at his pinbox and he had a factory sidewinder already on his rig. He did not know what it was. When I told him he got a standard hitch and started to use the sidewinder. He likes it a lot and sold the pullrite.

I'll let you know if I get any sag when I put it all together. Thank you again for your input and information.

Assuming you have sold this long ago? I know someone who would be interested if you still have it sitting around...

I am selling mine too, but someone else got it first.

I told this guy that I knew of someone else selling theirs on the forum, so if you like I can give him your contact info.

Not sure what he's willing to pay, but if you're interested I can point him to you...
