Thanks. I have a great price on the Elite. It's a few hundred cheaper than the Ford hitch. I like the idea of a clean box when removed (no rails). It looks like the pin will be approximately 38" from the cab. I will have to measure my pin box when I get a chance. It is in storage now. I think it extends enough.

We have the 8285ws/dodge 2500 with a 6 1/2 foot box. The Reese Revolution hitch works great. Wouldn't be without it.

Thanks. I noticed that most Ultralites at the RV show have the Revolution pin box. I wanted the Revolution pin box when I ordered the 5th wheel but my dealer talked me out of it. Not sure why.
My truck will be at the dealer in a few days I'm told. I went with the Ford/Reese hitch because the dealer gave me $1,000.00 in free accessories I could use toward the hitch. I can convert the base to a manual slider later if I need it.
I took some measurements & think I will be O.K. with the fixed hitch. It will be very close though. I will have to be careful on uneven ground. I also have the option of changing to the Revolution pin box. I want to change the pin box to a Morryde so I would prefer not to.

Yes, spent big $$ on truck and trailer, don't get cheap when hooking up, you will wish you got a slider or revolution on first trip out! Just for piece of mind.

Thanks. I hear what your saying. I measured the pin box and distance to the cab. I may be OK but won't know for sure until I get the truck & actually hook up. If I need the slider I will get it. Most likely go with the Revolution. My RV dealer said I don't need the either. It's not really a me being "cheap" issue. Although my wife might disagree.
