Have popped out two back windows of 2 different short bed trucks with 2 different Sabre 5th Wheels. Tomorrow DH goes to the Dealer to buy a PULL RITE hitch. We supposedly have a Reese Slider, but he can't get it to engage.
HE'S SO DONE WITH IT!!!

Forget the sliders! They are too heavy, take up too much room, and usually bind up when you need them the most.

Check out the sidewinders.

Look into Andersen...especially since you have a short bed SRW truck. You can get the added turning clearance while trimming away apx 300 lbs at the hitch. I towed my 36ckts with it in a SB but moved to a Dually LB after scaling it. I was over weight on my rear axle by a little and way over on my GVWR. I chose "peace of mind" by going DRW.

You will find that a SRW truck will be close to its capacities so every lbs counts.

I second the recommendation for a Revolution/Sidewinder. The trailer will also handle better and track closer to the TV (meaning a tighter turn with the same jack angle). We towed our 5er for about 1,000 miles with the turret locked before I got the wedge I needed and pulled the locking bolts. Was very pleased with the difference in performance and cab clearance. The last few degrees of jack angle before the clearance goes from "that still looks OK" to "HOLY CRAP!" happens really fast and is why so many people have had a cab strike despite trying to be careful.

Thanks for all the replies.


I have been looking at the CC34RE, so with a 1 ton SRW truck, I will be fine on the weight.

This is why I posted this question, because I was told be the rep that the CC Hathaway has a 88 degree or better turn without a sliders. Looks like a slider or something like it will be in the budget.

We have the B&W Companion hitch that fits into the gooseneck receiver in the bed. We used this on our quad cab short-bed Dodge with a Cardinal 3625 and now have it on the Dodge dually with the Champagne. We never had issues with the front cap even coming close to the truck cab.

Sorry for what may be stupid question, but I'm going to be new to towing a 5th wheel.

Do you have to worry about hitting the back window going forward or is the turning degree limited by the tow vehicle?

Thanks,
