2013 Heavy Duty 5th wheel Hitch
 
Does anyone have a 5th wheel hitch in their 2500 or 3500 HD yet? Part of the deal I worked out with my dealer on my new truck was a 5th wheel hitch installed for pulling my camper. They claim Mopar doesn't have one yet and they can't find an aftermarket one that fits the new '13 frame. I have looked online and called a few hitch places and I can't find one either. :4-dontknow:

Camping season is coming up soon and I need a hitch!!!

Any ideas???

Call <insert name of favourite hitch manufacturer here> and ask them which hitch will fit. The manufacturers will know, regardless if they have it listed on their website or not, or they will be able to provide an eta to you on when it will be available if they don't have one yet.

I called some directly and they said they don't have anything available yet.

Have you checked out this part # 82212036

It is from Dodge, claims it fits.

I talked to my dealer about that number. It sounds like that is an adapter to go from a goose neck ball to a fifth wheel plate. I guess the goose neck hitch is available now and I could get that adapter, but the dealer is buying the hitch (that was part of our deal). And as of right now they don't want to drop $1500 or more to get me that hitch set up.

Check out Curt Hitches, they show a few for your set up.

I called Curt a week ago and they said nothing yet. They are testing them now and should be available in 2 weeks if everything tests ok.

Off topic, but curious on your mileage with the 2500 Hemi...?

What changed about the frame from 12 to 13? I know the 3500 frame changed, but I didn't think the 2500 changed any?

I can't really give you an answer on the mileage. I only have 285 miles on the truck and most of them have been short trips and driving around town. The best I can tell on the highway is around 15-16. From what I read the frames are thicker and have additional cross members in them.

And still no hitch!
