I waited to see if anybody would suggest a B&W hitch. I love my companion hitch and they make one for factory pucks. With rounded cap on my 2014 Keystone Alpine I have not needed a slider in over 10 k miles towing in all conditions. Keystone calls it an 88 degree cap. I don't have to worry about the 16 degree angle to hitch up. Just sayin......
I've been all through the Jayco literature and website, and I cannot find anything on the Jayco nose-cap clearance. Many mfgrs "brag" about how their nose-cap will clear, but Jayco is silent on it.
OK. Went to the SG website, and read the manual. It IS a double pivot. The ad that I was looking at , as a possible source "RadAuto" showed it as a single. Maybe I should loom for a more knowledgable vendor! LOL!!!
Thank you for the assist, Folks! I'm sure that I'll have more 5'er rookie questions!
Hi, All! I'm in the process of selling my travel tailer and moving to a fifth-wheel. wife and I really fell for the new Jayco North Point 377RLBH at last weekend's Hershey Show.
I will be the FIRST to admit that I know very little about 5'er hitch systems. I've had several folks, including the reps for the MOR/ryde pin system recommend the Pullrite Superglide, as it is "automatic", and doesn't require getting out to release. (I have a 6' bed in my RAM, and I don't want to bang into the cab when backing the trailer into tight spots.) I have the in-bed "puck" system on the RAM, so I will need to mount the hitch on a picture frame, either Reese or Pullrite.
So my question is, do I want the Pullrite Superglide auto slider which is only single pivot? Or am I better off with a double pivot hitch? (and if so, what would you recommend?)
Thank you for any help!
