HELP Finding Correct Pinbox.

First off I have a 2015 Ram 1500 Crew Cab 5.7ft bed. I have just purchased a 5th wheel camper. I know this isnt an ideal setup but its the truck i want and the camper i want and theyre both already purchased so please dont tell me to get a different setup. I know i will need a reese sidewinder to be able to clear my cab. Where i am having trouble is finding which sidewinder will fit my camper. It is a Venture PN CJ 205 13 pinbox. I have found the sidewinder that fits most Venture pinboxes, and it supports the CJ 205 17 pinbox. I am wondering if it will also work with my 13 or if they are different. I know the 13 represents 13k weight rating and the 17 reps 17k rating. So do these pinboxes bolt up the same one is just a more heavy duty version. I am having trouble finding any info at all on the CJ 205 13 and the trailer is 2 hours away so i cannot go measure it easily.

Not a good set up. Most 5W hitched are set up to be properly installed in a 8' or 6' minimum bed. Don't know what size 5w you have but, half ton truck are limited to smaller light weight 5w's.

Did you get an answer from somewhere on your question?
Lot of times more weight means more bolts on the mount, so might/might not be an easy swap.
