I have been using the Superglide for about 10 yrs and have lost touch with the non-sliders. I am going to a long bed dually and would like to install the best hitch available. Any suggestions?

We purchased a new fiver in December which will require the purchase of a one ton truck. Our new hitch of choice will be a B&W.

I like my Reese Elite 18k. It is a slider, but I don't need it with my current trailer. Thought it's a good thing to have, just in case I pulled something else. Slider, aside, it seems to be a good hitch, easy to use, safety features and appears durable.

I also thought it was a good idea to get the undermount bed rails in case I wanted to remove the hitch and put something in my truck. Since the thing is so heavy, I think that may have been wishful thinking.

B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck w/ Companion hitch. Expensive, but I love it.

(Of course, I have nothing to compare it to as it's my first hitch.)

If you really want a new hitch.
This is easy to answer========PULLRITE SUPER5TH

Why not just put your Superglide in your new long bed and let it do it's job? Nothing says you can't have a Superglide in a long bed.

You've had the best for 10 years. Why change now?

Superglide is 16K and not big enough. Just got a new rig.

B & W 3300 Champion with the Resse undermount. Sweet set up 20,000/4500lbs. One of the best parts to this hitch is the fact that when you back in the jaws rotate around the pin and are closed when the weight is on. When you unhitch the jaws relax when the legs are down and the weight is taken off. You have no problem with the visual lock and unlock. Also after sale customer service is second to none and it is made in the USA.

I sure have liked my Hijacker that I got in 97. Two trucks and two trailers. Still going strong. Never a question on latching with a sliding bar. Chris
