If your bed is less than 6', you will have to go with a slider. Our bed is 6.5' and we use a Reese Titan 16K dual jaw hitch but have a Reese Revolution on our 5th wheel therefore we do not need a slider hitch. Works great, hardly any chunking. Can turn at 90 degrees with no problems. Cost $1k less than a slider.

5r hitch

We have a pullrite superglide for our 2006 dodge 3500 mega cab. Don't have to worry about tight turns and hitting cab. There is no clunking if the high is adjusted correctly. Pullrite also has fantastic customer service.

YUP! What you said. Pull Rite is the solution. Install it and never have to think or worry about it again.

"It just works".

Thanks for the feedback. We are getting a GMC 2500 and the trailer is a Sanibel 38QB. I'm brand new to this so sorry for all the questions. Is there a slide hitch that also has the airbag option? Or is it one or the other?

I believe pullrite is compatible with a air-ride pin box.

To answer the OP's actual question, if you wanted an air-ride hitch with a slider, you could buy any of the Trailer Saver hitches (ex. A BD3) and then get the Trailer Saver Simple Slide. The Slide attaches to the normal rails and the hitch attaches to the simple slide. It turns any of the Trailer Saver hitches into a slider.

We have the Pullrite slider hitch that was originally used on our GMC 1500 crewcab with short bed. Transferred it to our current GMC 2500 Crewcab with standard 6.5 bed. We ordered our Silverback with the Trailair pin box. Excellent combination.

5th wheel hitch

Just wondered, what's chunking?
Also, our Pullrite seems like it makes our Shockwave high on the front end.
Is this ok? And or is there any adjustment possible or necessary so we can level it out?
Thanks guys.

I bought the Demco Hijacker auto slide hitch for my f250 short bed and love it.
