That's why I would get a Pullrite automatic slider.

Thanks, I was thinking you had to get out to engage a bar or something. This is why I like this forum!

I have an 8' box, but because I carry a trike {scooter} up behind cab, sideways, I needed the extra turning ability. The auto slider gives me 18" more, and you never leave the 'comfort of home'.....It's a heavy hitch, but as my truck is only used as a puller anymore, the hitch stays in.......you can lift it out using the pin box and the landing gear...or a freind

I have the b&w turnover ball system for pulling my gooseneck, that's why I went with b&w companion hitch, and they didn't have a compatible slider at that time.
