Pullrite or not

New to the forum. Picking up the 5er in a few weeks. Eagle 365BHS 40'. Towing with a 2015 F350 SD short bed. I've been researching the auto slide hitches and just curious if it is necessary for the vehicle I'm towing with. New to towing an rv as well.

We bought our first fifth wheel last year, and we included a pullrite super glide with it. Towing with a short bed truck I wasn't willing to risk damaging my truck or fifth wheel so the auto sliding hitch was a must. I've been backed into some challenging campsites and not having to worry about one additional thing gives me a piece of mind. It works as advertised and does it so well you don't even notice it.

I've had a Pullrite Superglide hitch since 2008, and I agree with all that B5 GTX has to say. Also, I find that an automatic slider hitch really earns it's expense back when you are in an unexpected situation all of a sudden that requires a sharper turn than you would like to make - like in traffic tie ups, or an unfamiliar fuel stop that looked like it had a good exit drive, but really doesn't.

The Pullrite brand is great and service is equal! They are heavy but well worth the weight in my opinion! I LOVE mine and will only sell it to get a bigger one when I move to a 20k.

I got a pullrite in my 2013 SB... best hitch I ever owned. You can't go wrong with it.

Pull Rite Problems?

I have the 20k model.

I have had difficulty releasing the 5th Wheel pin from my hitch, on more than one occasion.

Does not appear to be a rhyme or reason for it. My son, who also has one, had to use Herculean strength to pull the bar and release the pin a couple of days ago and he canít understand why either.

Anyone else had this issue? Suggestions?

If all the weight is against the mechanism then it's hard to release. When it's hard, I just hit the truck in reverse and just slightly move to get the pin not pushing against it.
