RE: Reese Sidewinder

I already have the B&W in the most rearward position. And yes my hitch is the factory GM 4 point attachment. This is why I’m thinking the Sidewinder will be my best option.

RE: Aluminum Boat above cab and hood

I found a great deal on an Eide power loader with an aluminum rack that came off of the same model truck as mine. Now my concern is the 2 1/2” I lost in clearance between the front cap and the headache rack that’s now mounted behind the cab. I have a standard bed and no slider hitch which at times was tight before adding the rack. I’m leaning towards a Sidewinder pin box to give me some more clearance.

Reese Sidewinder

I have a Duramax standard bed truck that I pull a Grand Design Reflection 337 RLS with. I have a non sliding B&W hitch and have never had any issues with clearance. It gets close occasionally if I have to make a really tight turn, but no problems. I recently bought a rack that goes over the front of my hood to haul my 14’ boat on. This rack has a support that mounts to the bed behind the cab and so I’ve lost 2 1/2” of clearance. Under normal towing conditions I won’t have a problem, but I’m not as confident in tight turns. I really don’t want to go with a slider (too heavy) and so I was thinking of going with a Reese Sidewinder. Does anyone have any experience with the Sidewinder, good or bad? I’d appreciate any feedback. Thanks

RE: Aluminum Boat above cab and hood

Yes, the kind I want uses a winch to load the boat. You just have to help guide it on. There are lots out there that have the boat over the bed, but I need one that extends over the front hood because of my 5th wheel.

Aluminum Boat above cab and hood

I'm wanting to haul a 14' aluminum boat along with having my 5th wheel hooked up. I've seen some racks where the boat loads on top of the cab and extends out over the hood. Usually supported by a goal post of some type attached to the front of the truck. Do any of you have a set up like this? I'm looking into either buying one or making one. Thanks!
