Just wondering if anyone has seen, or is using this new pin box. It is USA made, and looks very well built, with torkflex cushion, and no air bag to mess with.
It is also pending approval from LCI, but I wouldn't hold my breath, since they are partners with Reese.

I was wondering the same. Says it works with my lippert frame. I have an Andersen and it works. But would be nice to not have something to take in and out of the bed and such. And it doesn't buck a lot, but more than I'd like. Has anyone used both and had an opinion on which they liked better? I'm also concerned on clearance of the pinbox and whether it can turn 60 plus degrees in my 2020 Denali.

Yeah, that would make you wonder what else they're lying about. [emoticon]

Just imagine the torsional forces (sideways) that will put on the pin box mount and front of the trailer frame...

JMO, but from the looks of it, the forces would be similar to a regular 5th wheel hitch. It's not like it's an adapter.

I agree Howard, its built like a tank, but I have 2 B&W's, and will keep them for now.

Howdy!

When I purchased my new truck I decided to not go back the a 5er hitch. I purchased a Reece Goose Box 20,000lb and toy hauler is 18,000. I have been very pleased the last year of towing with the GB. If I had a 5er over 20,000lb or for some reason needed to replace my GB I would definitely consider going with the GenY.

Oh yeah, you simply can't beat the B&W hitch.
