I have lead on a nice 2015 Chev Silverado 2500HD with a 6 1/2 foot bed. Will I need a sliding hitch?
What are the pros and cons of the 6 1/2 foot bed versus the 8 foot beside the obvious need for a sliding hitch.
If we get this done soon we will see you all out there.
Pulling a 2014 Silverback 33RL(basically same unit as a 33IK with a few interior design changes).....Pull with a 2012 GMC 2500HD with 6 1/2 foot bed....was pulling with a slider but have changed back to a stationary hitch.....did not need the slider....as SilverbackMel said the design of the front cap allows for this bed on tight turns.
If you're considering a bed cover for the TV, probably will want some style of roll up cover.
BTW....welcome from NE Arkansas to the forum....tons of good people with good information.
