We have the Pullright Super Glide. Love the hitch. Definitely leaves us with a peace of mind.

Definately. Our provincial parks make 90 degree parking a necessity.

I use a 15K Super Glide. This one fits on std rails and is less expensive. I got it for just over $800.00 online. They now make an 18K version also. It works great!

Have it and use it every time I put it back in storage. Pay extra and get an auto slider.

I also have the 16K SuperGlide, It is a necessity on my 06 Ford short bed. I think a slider is a MUST on these RV's that are 102" wide.
Maybe the slimmer RV's are the ones getting by without a slider.

I have one and use it every trip at least twice. Storage lot and driveway every time. Love it. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

If u were leaning to b an w because u have a turn over ball already. Curt hitches have an adaptor plate that fits in hole called x5 I believe. I'm not much on part #'s I just buy the stuff an rock on.As far as tongue pull to 5'er, as far as I can tell is the tongue pull follow's tow vehicle an 5'er take's an inside track while turning an is more stable an pull's easier.

Y'all are making me reconsider the B&W option for my truck. My driveway and the adjoining road are very narrow, so I doubt I'd even try to park a 5er in the driveway. At least until we buy our next house, any 5er we get will have to stay in storage when we're not using it. I do manage to get our 25' boat trailer in the driveway, but it's not always pretty because of the driveway issues.

I've never pulled a 5er (extended family all has 'em), but I've pulled tongue trailers plenty. I can't say that I've ever been in a position that I needed any more pivot degree than what a tongue trailer gave me... bearing in mind that the trailers we around 32' tongue to bumper. Does a fifth wheel require this much turning or is it simply a convenience for parking in tight spots?
