DRV Replacement Pin Box
RVH Lifestyles has designed a replacement pin box for use on certain DRV fifth wheels (and certain other brands using Lippert components). It is intended to be used on HDT’s and MDT’s. It pulls the kingpin back to 63” from the front gooseneck (storage compartment) of the trailer. It retains use of the pin box rails from the original DRV hitch and replaces that pin box with a pin box that moves the kingpin more towards the rear of the trailer. This accomplishes several things:
- It increases the pin weight a little, which is a problem on many DRVs. The ideal pin weight for use with an HDT or MDT is in the 22-25% region (of the total RV weight). Many DRVs can not achieve that with the existing pin box. This pin box will help, but alone will probably not achieve optimum pin weights.
- It snugs the trailer closer to the truck, reducing overall length by approximately 18-20” vs. the Mor/Ryde anti-chucking pin box , and provides a better aerodynamic environment.
- It provides a stronger pinbox – this pin box is rated at 32,000 lbs.
- It provides a more durable pinbox – it is powder coated, which reduces rust.

As part of our smart car bed system, we supply chocks specially designed for use with smart cars. These are designed to clear the low bumpers and to offer a complete solution to securing your car. They can also be used for other vehicles.
If you are building your own bed we offer these as an accessory that you can purchase. The chocks are fully powder coated, which mitigates future degradation of the chock. The kit consists of four powder coated chocks, each with a lashing winch, four straps, and L-track hardware.
