2014 wildcat 295rsx

Hi i'm considering buying the 295rsx and pulling it with a 2013 ram 2500sb 6.7 diesel, i now have a Kodiak 276bhsl. Can anybody tell me if there's major issues with this unit or something I should look out for. Also waffling between the b&w champion slide or the Pullright auto slide.any input would be appreciated,thanks

I am also getting the 295RSX. I am going with the pull-rite. Cost a few dollars more but the peace of mind when you make a sharp turn is priceless.

I picked up my 2015 version yesterday although I paid for it 3 weeks ago. It had a major problem with the entertainment center/kitchen slide. After a long, drawn out process of getting factory authorizations, advice and parts, my dealership finally made the last adjustments yesterday afternoon. I'm really pleased with the trailer over all, although a wooden box (just for show... no real usefulness) came apart on the lower left corner of that same slide. Another 2015 in the next slot also had problems with the same slide-out.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy this unit again... just disappointed with how long it took to get the problem fixed to 90%.

I use a B&W Turnover Ball hitch base and an Andersen Ultimate hitch topside. I love it. The 295RSX has a pin box that sticks out far enough that I don't need a slider and this Andersen Ultimate top end only weighs 75 lbs.

Mr.Dan are you saying you have a short bed and don't need a slide?

No, I didn't specify bed length although in the context of your original post, I see why you thought so. I don't think all bed 'names' exactly match bed lengths across all truck lines. GMC calls mine a standard bed - it's 6'6" long.
