More ? about the Eagle HT 29'5

How many of you have the Reese revolution pin box and the B&W hitch.
And who has the Auto level....
I have not been on here long and I've already learned about a few things I want on my FW.
Thank you everyone..

My Fifth is smaller, but I have the Revolution. Search my user name for detailed prior opinions on the good and the bad. Generally, I like it very much.
Note, however, B&W will not honor your warranty if you use a Revolution. Their opinion is that its use has not been studied enough to verify that it does not contribute to failure of the hitching mechanisms. No other hitch company has issues with it. And variants (Sidewinder, Fifth Airborne) of it have been on the road for years now, with no reports of problems I am aware of. I went with a Reese hitch, to keep all the components within the "system" the manufacturer created. But they do say it is compatible with all hitches, so 'tis not really an important thing to do.

The Reese revolution pin box is definitely an option with a standard 5th wheel hitch for use in a short box.

I choose to go with the Mor-Ryde pin box and a PullRite SuperGlide hitch for my short bed.

There are Pros and Cons for both.

The Reese revolution does not have any cushion where as the Mor-Ryde does have cushion to absorb some of the bucking and chucking. The Con of the SuperGlide is it is heavy and requires a special capture plate. I installed an electric hoist in my garage to put the hitch in and out of the truck. When I have it out of the truck I set it on a dolly so I can roll it around and store out of the way.

It's all a matter of preference and $$$.

I have the Reese revolution with the 16k box in the bed. Its my first 5er, so I cant comment on what others may have. I do know towing a 5er is much better than a TT.

We have the same Ram 2500 TV as well, but we have the Mor/Ryde pin box and B&W Companion slider hitch. We have towed our 29.5 four times to campsites and have yet to use the slider feature. We can still get about 70 degrees on a turn, without the the nose cap touching the cab of the truck. We're golden, so far!

We have the Auto Level. What questions do you have?

We already had a Pullrite Superglide, so we got the Moryde pin box. Pullrite makes a capture plate that easily installs on the Moryde. If you have questions, let me know.
