Well it's time to pick out the hitch.i am leaning towards a pull rite super glide automatic .since I have a short bed. I don't have much experience on these and don't know how often I would need to get out and do the lever pull if I got the manual. But as I get older I sure wouldn't want to forget.:fall
If I was going to need a sliding hitch, I'd definitely want the automatic vs. the manual one (even being as rabidly fanatic about my B&W). I'm not much on thinking and it just seems like an automatic would be easier.
Hopefully other actual users will chime in vs. what I think I know.
