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.


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


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

YES, that is what I was thinking, wrong words!

Sorry. I was a little harsh with my reply.


Hey no worse than I have given. I appreciate the apology. Like I say words have meaning! I sure don't want to pass along bad info.

Thanks!

Great post!!

This is not my first forum friend, that has owned his mistake, and announced it on this forum. To me...this reads, a strong man that is confident in who he is!

OP...I'll repost your question and topic.

Anywayz we have Superglide owners who may know how to answer your question.
Looking at PullRites SuperGlide capture plate chart may help you .
However a PullRite hitch dealer or a rv dealer who sells the Superglide can also help. Or a 1-800 or email to numbers on the add in the clicky to PullRite mfg should get a answer.

OP, if you live in the So Cal area I have a couple of different capture plates to choose from that I'd be willing to give you. One is a universal mount type that attaches to the pinbox with allen set screws (which I replaced with stainless steel to avoid rust). The other requires that you drill holes in your pinbox and connects with small nuts/bolts. It was fitted to an older Fleetwood Terry 5th wheel trailer. I would need some dimensions of your pinbox's kingpin plate to determine if either is a fit.

Depends on your pin box. All brands use various pin boxes
