I never understood the marketing hype of 90 degree or 88 degree turning. Bad idea, and 99% chance you'll never do it, or want to do it. I only did it once, but I wanted Burger King bad, and I wanted THAT parking spot, so jackknifed it in there. Puts a bad strain on tires and axles. If careful, any hitch will do. We have the Reese Elite 18k, but would prefer the Trailer Saver air hitch over any on the market.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Check with the dealer but I think that model is standard with the Reese Revolution Kingpin. If so, you won't need a slider.

Negative. Cedar Creek and Silverback do not use the Reese Revolution. Only the Lippert 1621, Trail Air, or whatever else you may select.

Mmmm. Me too. Maiden voyage

My mistake, I googled it and thought it had the reese.

I pull with short bed truck. I have a slider, but have never had to use it. But, I have it if the situation ever arises to need it.

Have a 6.5 bed and fixed hitch. Never needed a slider. Everyone I ever talked to with at least a 6.5 and a slider never used it.

thanks for info, just going back and forth with dealer's dept that will be doing the hitch install on my truck. they say they will not put one in unless auth by FR? due some freakish accident some customer had when they installed a non-sliding hitch.

and our walk-thru is scheduled for tomorrow so trying to wrap this up today so they can be ready for us tomorrow. will post updates on our walk-thru. really excited this is a good unit and floorplan.

Spoke with our local dealer today and he suggested the Curt Q16. A $200 upgrade over the basic Curt 16K, but worth the extra cash. He also said, with the newer 5th wheels, you won't need a slider with the 6.75 box so save your money.
