F250/North point 377

I have a 2012 F250 cc sb, I'm looking at getting a 377. what pin boxes or hitches do you guys recommend. I just don't want my nose cap and back of my truck cab to merge on a tight turn. I'm not looking for a discussion on towing capacities and weight ratings on my truck, just hitches and pin boxes. Thanks

I appreciate your dilemma. From my sig, you can see we are pulling a similar setup. we have a Mor-ryde pin and it seems pretty smooth. It mounts into a B&W Companion which uses the under-bed factory mounts (the pucks). Very easy to get in and out of the bed since the B&W breaks down into 2 pieces.
The rub is exactly what you are asking about. Our front cap will not allow me to make a full-lock U-turn. My insurance co spent about $500 for me to learn that lesson.
B&W recommended NOT using a "revolution" type pin box but I can't say if they still do or not. To do over I'd probably get a slider.
As it stands we still have the combination listed above and I am very cautious when making tight turns (forward and backward).
I don't know how the cap on a 377 is shaped so I can't say how your combination will perform. I've spoken with a couple of folks with "other" 5ers who have no problems with tight turns and the caps seem to be sculpted pretty aggressively to provide clearance. I guess the '13 Eagle cap is just a touch too "puffy".
The bride is an excellent spotter and we communicate via cell when backing. Our common "pinch-points" are making the turn while backing into storage and making the turn in our street's cul-de-sac. Having a good spotter makes it all work.

I try real hard to make big mistakes only once but the problem seems to be there are so many big mistakes.

Thnanks. A friend of mine has the b&w companion and pulls a 2016 Elkridge. I don't know if he can get full lock but he has no problems with thight turns in camp grounds. That being said the truck does have a nice dent above the corner of back glass from his last 5er
. But the Elkridge is a more sculpted, less "puffy" nose cap. I'm planning to use his truck to go pick mine up, hopefully I'll have enough clearance. Then I'm pretty sure I'm going with a slider.

I have the Mor-Ryde pin box and I am using a Superglide auto slide hitch with my short bed. I can make a full 90 without worries.

Same truck , I use a reese manual slider hitch. No problem going 90 degres with the rig.

Manuals slider are the way to go for the wallet with a short bed. Sure , most of the time you won't need it but when you'll need it you got it.

Some people say that you can forget to slide it ... that is true BUT , if you pay attention , witch you should , it is really hard to forget. What I do is EVERYTIME I enter a campground need the slider or not , I pull it back to be sure , takes me 15 secs and I can forget about it

I've got the same truck in a 350 version. We bought the Superglide with our first fiver, and moved it to our new 350 and use it with the Mor-Ryde pin box on our HT. I don't regret a single penny of that purchase.

I am the type of guy that would dent my cab and bust out my back window at 1 am during a rainstorm because I didn't think I needed to manually slide. Your millage, and opinion, may vary!!

we have the pullrite superglide and have never regretted it. the only downside is it weighs more than the average hitch but I have a winch in my garage that I use to get it in and out and it work great!
