MORryde Orbital Pin Box

Is anyone using the “Orbital” mode of the MORryde Orbital Pin Box by locking the king pin at the hitch and swiveling at the 5th wheel side mount point? How’s it working?

Yep, I put it there

Looking for some real world experience. I’m assuming it’s just like a Reese Revolution.

Looks like a clone with the Mor/Ryde rubber bumper up front. I don't think it can be used any other way than the hitch pin locked in place.

It is just like the Revolution but with the Mor/Ryde rubber bumpers. We don’t use it as a Revolution though so can’t help you there.

I have a very similar truck. With the short bed, if you are not using the Orbital feature, do you use a slider or are you just careful with your sharp turns?

I have an Andersen rail mount hitch. I’ve only pulled once bringing it home from the dealer and haven’t come close to hitting anything.

I have the same setup as bluie5, AUH Rail Mount / short bed / Orbital locked which is done at the factory. No issues with turning radius...I can probably get to 90 degrees if I tried, but I would prefer not to put stress on the tires. I have 1000 miles under my belt without any issues. It tows as smooth as a baby's bottom!

I am using the MORryde Orbital hitch on my 2018 28.5 RSTS. I have a Pro Series 20K hitch in my 2017 F250 short bed. The hitch is not a slider hitch. I used the supplied wedge, installed it as the instructions stated, and all works like a charm. Its amazing what that extra 25 inches or so does to not only cab clearance in tight turns, but also in backing. If you're used to backing a TT the pivot being closer to the tailgate makes baking a lot easier and more familiar.

That's great feedback, thanks. I'm about 3.5 weeks into my 8-12 week wait for my 30.5MBOK. My plan is to use it as you described with a 16k Reese non-slider hitch in my short bed.
