I too am a pullrite fan. I have an f250 and a blue ridge and it works flawlessly and you don't ever have to worry about forgetting. I had standard rails with mine. Just lubed it with wd40 before using and kept it clean and dry when not in use.

I forgot to mention the another con would be that you have to inline with the trailer to connect and disconnect because of the special plate used to make it slide.
I reinforced several trusses in my shop and hang slider from hoist when not in use.

no way I could do this with a standard hitch because the superglide slides back about 14 inches. when I saw one at the campground I told my wife if we buy a 5er this is the only hitch I will even consider. picked up off craigslist for 500.00

Thanks for all the responses. Looks like I picked the right one. I just sold my old 5th wheel today and even managed to sell my manual slider along with it. That takes a little off the cost of a new one. Old camper picked up tomorrow and I can now go pick up my new one. (As soon as I have a hitch). Thanks for the reassurance and can't wait to break in my new sierra 32QBBS.

I hope you enjoy your 32qbbs as much as we love ours. I'm hoping to add a TV to the bunk house for the kids as soon as it warms up a bit. It's a great 5'er and is easy to tow especially with the Pullrite. lol

Very happy with my Pullrite other than it slides when not hooked up. Currently I secure it with a line to my truck bed tie downs to stop this from happening.

Really? Never thought of that. I'll have to do that when I get mine.

sandbagger and 5er tom its been a while since I had to do mine but there is a bolt in the front center if tighten a little it will stop that from happening it also keeps it from moving back and forth when going straight. That info is in set up instructions.
As you tighten move the slider back and forth with the handle you will feel it get snug in the center, good luck.

That makes sense. I though that they would have a way to prevent the hitch from sliding when not connected to the 5er.

I'm on my 2nd pullrite hitch since I got rid of my Ford. Now have a Ram with in factory hitch setup so I had to change hitches. I have a New Pullrite 4100 with super rails to sell no mounting brackets though. Will never use any other hitch and they have great factory service.
