Automatic sliders? Pullrite and HiJacker, Pullrite being the more popular one.

I would look at the Hijacker if you are interested in a auto slider. It doesn't require a adapter plate, plus it is built by a VERY reliable company, Demco!

Thanks for all the suggestions! I just put money down on a gmc 3500 hd with a crew can, regular bed and single rear wheel. We will most likely pick it up next weekend!

I now need to find the hitch and a place that installs it in new jersey.

Any suggestions on where?

Also. Any suggestions on what else I might need?

Trailer pick up won't be for a while... I'm still in negotiations.

Thanks!

Back in 06 when i bought my chevy cc 4x4 with a 6'.6" bed, pullrite super glides were $2200 plus $600 to install, to expesive at the time so i went with a RBW with a manuel slide installed for $600 and some change, been towing trailers for 30yrs but 3 yrs ago didn'nt think i needed to use the slider and $1000 later a new back window. NOW pullrite has come out with a new 15k that will fit into my current rails without having to redrill holes. Currently on vacation but next monday i will order it from Tweetys.com for $809 plus $129 for the catch plate with no sales tax and free shipping. Plus I'm only 5'6' AND I'm tired of stretching over the bed to pull the manuel slider level, my wife is 5'11" and says so whats the problem, i told her were in hawaii right now for our 30yr annaversary and there is no problem, hopeful the hitch will be at my house when i get home next week.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, and I hope it's not too much of a hot topic, but we are about ready to pull the trigger on a new truck and 5th wheeler. Now I need to think about the hitches...

Our set up will be the following (most likely).

GMC 3500 4x4 crew cab, regular bed, SRW
Cyclone 3010

I know of the following 3 name brands. I would get a slider hitch.

Reese
Husky
Pullrite.


Any thoughts, suggestions ideas? Which one did people like better, etc? Where would be a good place to have it installed? Etc.

Thanks for the help.


If your rig is < 18k lbs., definitely check out the B&W Turnover Ball and Fifth Wheel Companion. Best hitch out there and the company is as good as their products.

What is the B&W companion?

Is it a slider as well? Goodneck?

I'm also looking at the hijacker vs the pullrite. Any thoughts?

If you want an auto slider then look at the Pullrite Super Glide. Fixed hitch look at the B&W Companion. These are two very good heavy duty hitches-you will be happy with either one. Anyone need a capture plate for a pullrite Super Glide send me a PM-I have one available. Good luck.

I would look at this hitch. This can be a gooseneck as well when it is out of the truck. Super easy to use, and can be removed for full use of the bed. There is no click or levers to use or not knowing if its locked in, don't have to do bump tests of any of that stuff. It is locked or open. Solid product. If you are buying a heartland trailer, even with a short bed truck you can turn 88 deg. You shouldn't need a slider.
