if you're interested in how it works, my initial post on this thread had the youtube video that shows how it works, and demonstrates how it attaches to the trailer -super easy and quick.
I asked their rep about using it with a short box (the Dodge I'm picking up has a 6'4" bed, not the 8' one) instead of a slider hitch -they were absolutely clear, short boxes are the main reason people initially choose these hitches. the connection is reversible, offering a 9" change in orientation (basically you choose the orientation that works for your truck, you don't change it for backing in or something like that) -but once you have it oriented properly, it is ideal for avoiding contact with the TV.
-as it was explained to me, anyway -I did some digging for reviews -they are sold on Amazon.com/.ca and there are tons of reviews from customers. 100% of them gave it 5 stars. 100%!!! I'm still BRAND NEW and learning this stuff, but I figured experience of people on these forums and reviews of customers was a good place to start.
