Sliding Hitch

Just upgraded to a 2014 Blue Ridge 3125 RT and I have a manual hitch. With the front of the unit being 24 inches in front of the king pin. Backing up and turning with my 2008 Dodge 3500 SRW short box is going to be fun. I have only taken this unit to the scales and now I have to make changes to my truck. What is a good sliding hitch and which air bags should I get, this thing rolls down the highway like a ship in a storm.

Look at the Hijacker auto slide hitch sold by Demco-products. Go on line at Hijacker.com, click on RV towing products. The video has a Blue Ridge as the demo 5th wheel. Had mine about four years, no problems.

B&W products are top notch, but if I was going to get a slider- I'd want to pony up the dough and get one that is fully automatic.

I have a Dodge short bed and HAD to go to a Pull Rite slider retrofit.
Best change Ever. I can do better than 100 degree turn.
Check them out

X2 with jakspar20. Auto is best, no worries, won't forget or say should be ok aft all it's raining. If you ever need it and don't have it - just a thought. 1500-6000 in damage to your TV or rig just makes it all worthwhile.

Pullrites Superglide are top of line auto sliders...wouldn't bother with a manual style.
Mine works flawlessly & a great ride towing.
