hitch review

We are in the process of ordering a eagle ht 29.5 bhok. I believe i am going to have a auto sliding hitch installed in my 2016 chevy 2500hd vs going with the Reese Revolution. I am looking for some reviews on auto sliding hitches. I am current looking at the pullrite 16k superglide and a Demco Hijacker Autoslide. Does anyone have any pros or cons with either of them? or have had any issues?

TIA

I also ordered the same model, and as of December the Reese Revolution pin box is no longer as option. Jayco replaced that & the Morryde Pin Box with the Morryde Orbital Pin Box which is an additional $500. My understanding is you don't need a slider hitch if you have a pivoting king pin and vice versa, but I could be wrong. I will be ordering the Anderson 5th Wheel hitch which I will pair with the Orbital Pin Box.

whjake,

I have the Pullrite 16k Superglide hitch and love it.
I had it installed with Pullrite's SuperRail Kit. This allows me to remove the hitch and have a flat floor bed - no rails.

Pros:
Hook-up & don't worry about any turning or backing up.
Easy to remove to have a full truck bed w/out rails.

Con:
The only con I can say is that it takes 2 people or a hoist to remove the hitch from the bed.

I would highly recommend this hitch and would buy it again.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Pullrite 16k superglide here and it works perfectly, not one issue with mine. I bought it back in the spring and I have pulled over 3000 miles with it so far. It is heavy and not easy to remove, but I would not hesitate to buy it again.

Hello,
I have the Pullrite 16k slider and the Pullrite mounting bracket that fits my 5th wheel prep package in my Dodge. You can U-Tube the top five 5th wheel hitches and see for yourself. I personally think the Pullrite is the best on the market. I can remove it myself but there's no need to kill myself so I use a engine lift. I used to have a Pullrite 12k traditional slider which was heaver than my new Pullrite IS 16k hitch. The only downside to this hitch is that it sets higher in the bed so it adds height to the nose so I had to do several things to correct it. You can read in my other post what I did. Good luck in your decision and happy camping.
Chris

I've had my 29.5 BHOK for a year now and getting close to 10k miles on it with a reg bed Dodge and now a reg bed Ford.

I had a slider on the Dodge and never used it, even in the previous 15k miles towing a smaller fifth wheel. When I got the Ford I went with a B&W Patriot hitch with no slide.

Yes, on REALLY tight turns you have to watch the trailer. Note that these are turns going forward, not backing. I've never had a backing situation where I needed that much angle.

FYI, the nose of the 29.5 BHOK (and many others) are curved to provide a lot of clearance.

Last summer we went back to a 5th Wheel with our 2017 Eagle 29.5BHDS. In the purchase, we got the Pullright 16K slider. As others have said we too are very happy with the setup and in use. Our previous 5th wheel was when we had our 2500 Dodge Ram longbed. With the Jayco, we now have a Chevy 2500 Crew Cab diesel, short 6.5-foot bed, and just didn't want to take the chance. We got a good price, about $800.00 installed and paid separately for that so it wasn't financed.

You won't regret the Anderson hitch, I have one and it is the best in my opinion thats on the market. NO popping or cracking and super easy to take in and out of your truck. I have it in my 07 Silverado 2500HD std bed truck with a truck tool box and have had ZERO problems..

We LOVE our superglide. Only down side is the weight but I put an electric hoist in our garage and use that to lift it in and out.

Our hitch is now 5 years old and last year I had hitching issues. Call Pullrite and they sent parts to fix it and it didn't work so they sent more parts and fixed the issue. Never did they ask the age or question why it wasn't working and most importantly they never asked for payment. Lifetime warranty and they stand behind it!
