Gonna try the Pullrite Superlite hitch

New TV so I figured new hitch. Decided I would be the Guinea pig and try out the new Superlite hitch. Install was super easy but I haven't pulled with her yet. Stay tuned..........

Apologies for the sideways pic. No idea why this is happening.

I have been using this hitch all season. 3300 miles pulled. Flawless operation. No chucking at all. Easy to hitch. Easily removed (less than 5 minutes). Lightweight.

The only "con" I really have is the height you need to raise your camper to get the thing unhooked when on uneven ground.

That is good to hear. My 16K Husky slider hitch is so heavy that it just lives in the bed of the truck. It would be awesome to have a 50 lb hitch that I could remove whenever it's not needed. In three years of pulling the 5th wheel, I've never needed the slider, and have turned real close to a 90 on a couple of occasions. Way more hitch than what I actually need.

The way the SuperLite works with the "ball" attached over the pin allows you to gain maybe 2 inches more clearance if you mount it in the right orientation for that. I don't think you would have a problem.

I would agree with the no clearance problems. That isn't really a concern with the 88 degree turning radius design of the Sundance XLT. I just have been looking for good reviews (any reviews) about the Superlite to try to convince myself to get rid of a perfectly good, albeit heavy and bulky, hitch, and spend $600 for another.

If it makes you feel better I had to unload a nearly new Superglide hitch at a great financial loss myself. I used the band aid method, sold it quick so it would hurt less.

I replaced a pullrite superslide with a Andersen hitch for the same reason. Im certain the Andersen hitch spawned the idea for Pullrites version. To answer your question, I am very pleased with the ball hitch. I don't care for the raising and lowering that is required to hook and unhook. Thats my only beef.
