If your hitch can use it there is no difference.
Mine does not so I could be wrong about the composition.

They are made of Nylon, although some people call it Teflon.. Teflon is too soft for this kind of pressure and would squeeze flat in no time.

Lou, why can't your hitch use it? I thought the kingpin on 5-ers are a standard size? Did you do a goose box or something?

I learn something new on this forum every day. I've always called it a Teflon plate and I've used it on both my FWs with my B&W hitch. I went to CW's site just to look at it and they call it a "Lube Plate" and it is actually polyethylene.

When we had the Cougar we used the lube plate, no mess and never a problem. Now with our new RV it has the revolution hitch so nothing at all on the 5th wheel, nothing moves in that area. A little spray lube on the jaws that's about it.

With the Pull-Rite Super-Glide hitch the hitch head turns; not the king pin foot. The foot stays stationary in relation to the hitch head.
