5th wheel hitch

I have had this hitch for 20 years used it on 4 diffrent rv's
I have looked on the internet can't find anything about it
does anybody have one and do you think 20 years is it
time to change it out? the one thing I like about it is the
3/4 by 3" bar that goes across the front of the king pin.

Thanks Cat320 looks like rbw is what I have, all I can find on the
internet is 3 for sale and those look like they are rated at 12000#
and 3000# down so I should be ok I just hate to take it somewhere
to be checked out, worried they will say yea you need one because
they want to sell one.

As long as it is still sound (and they're pretty easy to inspect) then I don't see why you'd change it out as long as it meets your needs.

It dose have a little play in it when you start off from stop signs
the bar that goes across the front has a wear spot on it my fault
I did not grease that part for years and it started making noise
put the grease on it all quite now.

I had one for 10 years and it looks like a RBW 15000 lb,I also had a little play in mine. I noticed that the straight bar started to wear a small curve in the bar where the pin
would always be resting on it. I think the flat bar against the curved pin will eventually wear over time and will give you some play.I just relaced mjne with a Curt Q-5 20000lb hitch. I love my new hitch,it has a higher load rating,and much quieter when nothing hooked up to it.It has a rubberized block under the head to keep it from bouncing around.I got it for 499.00 plus free shipping to the house which was a great deal.
