Shorty

Pullrite Superglide. Model 2700 fits in industry standard rails. Works in forward and reverse automatically so you don't have to think about it.
You can turn 90 degrees if you want. (Not too good for the trailer tires/axles)
All you have to do is spray it with WD40.

Reese Revolution

Sorry, don't mean to hijack your post, but I had similar questions regarding hitches and have seen the option for the Reese Revolution on the Jayco Eagle Super Lite HT's. I have watched numerous videos and finally figured out how it works. However, I have not seen any video regarding the inner workings of the Revolution pinbox. Is the Reese Sidewinder identical to the Revolution, but jst marketed under a different name? By moving the pivot point back 22" this would negate the need for a slider entirely in a short bed PU?

I too have a short-bed (6'4") pulling a 40' Eagle. I invested in a Pullrite Superglide; worth every penny...

I contacted Reese a while back about adding the 5th Airborne to my Revolution and I was told that I needed to replace the revolution with the Airborne / Sidewinder. I suspect that they are not the same BUT a frame built for a revolution should work fine with a sidewinder.

With a Revolution / Sidewinder, no need for a slider, and there's nothing to do.

The reese sidewinder and revolution both work exaclty the same, only the revolution is a beefed up sidewinder to Jayco's spec's with a different name. can only get them installed at factory during assembly.

I love knowing people that know things! It helps compensate for my ignorance.:hihi:
It takes a SMART man to seek advice from those who have been there, done that- So don't sell yourself short- JMHO- DD

I have a 2012 Jayco Eagle MKTS. It is 39.5 feet and I tow it with a 2010 Chevy Duramax/Allison 2500HD . My truck also is a short bed 6.5 feet.
I have been out a few times this year and have not so far had a problem.
My hitch is a Reese 16K with a slider.
