The slider was the same price as the fixed hitch and negotiated in the price with the deal. i think it was arounf $800 installed for the slider hitch. The Reese revolution king pin was added at the factory. You can get the aftermarket revolution (sidewinder) to refrofit a normal king pin.

You will have to for give me about fifth wheel hitches i dont know much about them. So all campers have king pins? Mine is a 2012 Wildcat think it would have a king pin? Then all i would need is the slider hitch.

My hitch is rated at 16,000 pounds yet in 3 years of towing a 9200 pound camper it has gotten beaten up pretty good.

NOT unsafe, mind you, just showing its age. gauling on the slides and some bending of the front leading edge metal due to movement in the Super Rails.

I personally would never even consider going that close to the edge with my families life in the balance. That hitch and its mounts are the only thing keeping the camper connected to the truck.

In this case NEVER send a boy to do a man's job. I would not consider anything less than a PullRite has a SAFER, STRONGER, BETTER designed hitch for you model 4100 (16,000 pounds) to pull a 12,000 pound camper.

I am also using a PullRite SuperGlide. When I purchased it, the Sidewinder/Revolution option didn't exist. I therefore cannot comment on their performance, but the SuperGlide is flawless and automatic in its performance. I also have a TransferFlow 30-gallon refueling tank/toolbox combination in front of the hitch without incident.






The SuperGlide moves rearward 14" automatically as you turn. Without it, I would most certainly have hit my cab on several occasions.
