Look on your pinbox and see what model it is. Then go on super glides web page and it will tell you what you need.

Congrats on your new 325RES!
I've got a Curt manual slider, but don't even need it.

Enjoy!

capture plate

I have not picked up the trailer yet, getting it this Saturday. I have two plates from the guy I bought it from one is for Dexter, Fabex, lippert and Leland pin boxes. Liberty is going to have a plate if my isn't the right one. hope mine is good, don't want to spend any more money, but i will to be safe. Wasn't planning on getting new camper but wife loves the 325res. Sold my TT in lest than 10 hours on craigslist. Thanks Ron

I'm pretty sure the chassis is made by Lippert if that helps. Pin box too probably.

Same thing about my DW. Once she saw the 325RES, she wouldn't talk about anything else.
Sold my 20 year old fold down on Craigs List too.

There are several plates for Lippert pin boxes.

Here is the current list.

A phone call should clear it up.
The dealer had the installed pin box information the same day.

Be sure to get the bolt on one instead of the weld on. That way if you have problems, you can pull it off and anyone can pull the trailer. I have a Pull-Rite slider hitch and use a Lippert Capture Plate.

I agree, the custom one is the only way to go.

Mine just pops off with an allen wrench if I need to get the camper towed to a campground.

If you have the universal bolted or welded onto the pin box, Superglide makes an conversion adapter for the tow guys (that most do not carry). If I had one of these I think it would be a worthwhile investment.

It uses the adapter and your hitch head to allow any hitch to pull your camper.

Herk,
I suspect I have the same capture plate as you do, or one very similar. Do you notice any movement of the plate? Mine also pops off with the removal of allen screws. I have noticed when I take off from a dead stop, or almost come to a complete stop, a clicking sound. Over this weekend, while disconnected from the trailer, I was able to use my hand and push on the capture plate. There is movement and I suspect it is what makes the noise when starting and stopping. It doesn't appear that any adjustments can be made as the set screws are fully seated. Just wondering if this minimal movement is normal.
