Reese Revolution

Hi again,

I was wanderingif anyone out there has experience with the reese revolution Pin box Option. It is basically an OEM version of the reese sidewinder. I have a standard box CC, and trying to decide between a sliding hitch or the offset pivot point of the revolution. As spoken about before, we are looking at the 365bhs. It is a lot of trailer to pull, andd the extra manueverability would be nice. The one drawback is the revolution does not come with an air ryde option or a MOR/ryde option. Thank you all again for responding.

Greg

Greg, I can't give any advice. I just purchased a 31.5 fbhs with the Reese revoltion pin box. I've only pulled it twice, that being home from the dealer then again from the driveway to the parking shed. I was concerned about pulling a 5er, but, it soooooooo much better that pulling a bumper pull. I chose the Revolution after some research. I did not want a slider as I did not want the weight to shift while turning.

As I said, I can't give advice, but I do like the choice I made.

I bought the Revolution when we ordered our current fiver, I am happy we did. I use a Standard Reese Signature Series hitch, works great. I too wish they offered a factory Airborne option, it would be nice. With my truck I never have to worry about the Fifth Wheel hitting the cab, that is reason enough to buy it. Works as advertised, I would buy it again.

I have a 365 with the Mor-Ryde pin which I added aftermarket due to not knowing what I wanted at the time.

The chucking effect on the truck is almost all but eliminated with the Mor-Ryde on there now. Before it would get going pretty good on some lumpy roads and restarts could be creaky. If you have a shortbed I would go with a slide and some cushion between you and the trailer. Those long trips are going to be more enjoyable and not as fatiguing IMHO. If a long bed then get the factory Mor-ryde and you'll be good to go.

Also there has been mention of Sidewinders being a factory voiding add on for the frame. Don't quote me on this but I have read in other threads where contacting Jayco on this might be something you do before investing.

They make some hithes with cushioning which would be another option if you go with the Sidewinder. Either way something should be had between you and the trailer based on my experience with this unit having both a rigid and cushioned setup.

Redhorse, My TV is a Chevy Duramax four door short bed. Kitty and I first gave the 365 BH some thought but went with the 31.5BH as I was concerned with my TV not being a 1ton with duel wheels.

Our camper we bought off the lot had the Revolution on it. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time but after doing some research I realized I didn't need the slider and would have no worries about turning into the truck. The dealer we bought ours off of didn't have a clue what the Revolution pin box did he swore I needed a slider no matter what with a short bed truck. I ignored him and didn't get the slider, we have only pulled it twice but seems like a good thing to me.

re: reese revolution

Our TV is a 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD ccsb 4X4. The reese revolution is an option on the 2013 365BHS, as well as an optional larger fridge.

They make a sidewinder airborne unit. Will Jayco allow you to upgrade to that unit? If not maybe a hitch setup with some cushion is in order.

You're probaly also going to need some type of beef up in your rear suspension as well.

It's a heavy unit at the pin.
