I would think PullRite would be the place to ask that question. That way you get it straight from the mfg.

No need for a capture plate as long as you visually verify your hitch is PROPERLY latched and there is no space between the pinbox plate and the hitch plate.

To the original poster please disregard the quoted post.

To Cummins12V98 - Giving bad advice is worse than giving no advice. You have no idea what a pullrite superglide hitch is or how it works. Without the capture plate the hitch would not operate properly and damage would occur.

It all depends on what kind of pinbox in on the 5th wheel. Get that information and then call Pull-rite.

Go to their website - Pullrite Capture plates
They will tell you how to determine which fits and which will not.

when in doubt, call Pullrite, they are very easy to chat with and eager to answer questions.

I stand corrected! "Capture plate" to me is the device that stops the RV from dropping if high hitched for example.

Get the model # off your pin box and go to Pullrite's website and you can match it there.

Back in the day they used to make a "Bed Saver" It would bolt on the rear of your hitch and "CATCH" the pinbox before it hit the bed if hitched improperly ......

I have not heard about them in years

Sorry. I was a little harsh with my reply.
