5th wheel hitch

Ok, let's hear it: PullRite slider or Drawtite slider? The main difference is that the former has a fool proof locking system. Yes, there's a $$$ difference. But what price do we put on safety and the CRS syndrome?

If the choice is between the two, Pullrite all the way.

An auto slider versus a manual contest.

Pullrite is also made in the USA.

x2 on the Pullrite. I love ours, and they are made about 2 miles down the street from where I live.

We went with the Pullrite and are happy with our set up. No problems. We also went with the SuperRails system which allows you to completely remove the rails from the bed when you're not using your hitch. Cost a little extra but well worth the money if you want to use the bed of your truck for other things.

Drawtight/Reese is a fantastic hitch(signature/elite series)
Never had to use the slide function yet. Perhaps if I did I would be cutting it too close anyway

I always hate when people respond to a poster with an answer that they didn't ask... so, here goes - B&W now has a Slider hitch. It's not automatic, unfortunately, but everything else about the B&W hitches are topnotch!

Just made an appointment with The Great Outdoors RV to install a pullrite 5er hitch in my truck in preparation for our 8289ws that should be delivered the first week bmp in May. Went with the non slider Super 5th since I'll be having the revolution part of the pin activated. Also going to have them wire the 7 pin cable that came as part of the factory camper pkg that is bundled up between the cab and bed. Can't wait!

I have the superglide with the superrails, best 500 bones I have ever spent. found it on craigslist and it looked brand new, It also came with a adapter so another non slider (normal) 5er truck can haul with my trailer if need be. I did not want the universal capture plate so I had to buy one for my pin box. only draw is it is super heavy
