4-Way-Pivoting Head with Rounded-Slide-Bar System
This fifth-wheel trailer hitch features a 4-way-pivoting head to provide a full range of motion for easy trailer hookup. The fifth wheel can be easily removed by one person - simply remove two pins and two clips.
The fifth-wheel head securely grabs your trailer king pin with a rounded-slide-bar, single-jaw mechanism. The slide bar offers excellent load management and a smooth ride.
The rounded slide bar is operated by a 3/4" diameter handle with a cushioned grip that makes slide-bar operation more comfortable. The bar handle includes an integrated tab that is lockable with included padlock. Using a padlock secures your trailer to the hitch. Fifth-wheel pull-pin lock plates (RP58093; sold separately) can be used to secure the hitch to the truck.
This fifth-wheel trailer hitch includes a square-tube slider that offers 10" of travel in your truck bed. This enables your vehicle to make normal turns during low-speed maneuvers and in narrow spaces without fear of your trailer's contacting the cab of your vehicle.
The slider increases the space between the cab and the trailer to allow for greater turning clearance, moving the hitch and trailer king pin 10" closer to the tailgate of your truck. For highway towing, the slider locks the fifth-wheel hitch in place between your truck cab and the rear axle.
To activate slider: Stop truck and trailer. From the side of the truck, unlock the hitch from the towing position by pulling the handle. From inside the cab of the truck, manually activate the trailer brakes with the brake controller and slowly pull the truck forward until the slider locks into place closer to the tailgate. Make sure that the slider is locked, then maneuver your rig.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Fifth Wheel PS30094 Review
Today were going to review part number PS30094. This is the Pro Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the square tube slider. This fifth wheel hitch is perfect for short bed trucks. It is a sturdy and reliable fifth wheel hitch at an affordable cost and it has the slider legs thatll move the hitch and kingpin ten inches closer to the tailgate for increased turning clearance. The square tube slider allows your vehicle to make normal turns, allowing low speed maneuvering and in narrow spaces.This will move the hitch and the trailer kingpin ten inches closer to the tailgate and then it will lock in place between the truck cab and the rear axle for highway towing. The design of this hitch uses the rounded slide bar, single jaw system which will automatically latch around the trailer kingpin.
I just want to show you how that is. You just pull this handle. Theres a little notch there that will latch it open and that will leave the slide bar open and allows for the kingpin to go in. Once the kingpin goes in, you just release it. This will slide around the kingpin.Itll offer improved load management and ride when compared with similar models.
Once it is totally closed, these holes, you can see right here theres a tab on the handle of the hole then theres a tab sticking out of the head with hole. When you lock it into place, the holes will line up. You can use a pin and clip through there but you could also use the included padlock that you could just run through there. Lock it into place that way the handle would not open. Nobody could open it up.
That does come included with the hitch.The head on this is a full weight pivoting head which will help with trailer hookup. Itll make it easy to hookup even on uneven ground. It basically will pivot front to back, and the skid plate right up here will actually, if you can see, moves side to side, so that will aid in locking your trailer to your fifth wheel.The handle has a cushion grip which will provide comfortable jaw operation. The tab I mentioned is lockable with the padlock.Now also one other feature on this, it has the lockable, let me just rotate this and Ill show you, adjustable hitch height. If youll look on the cross member, theres four set of holes so depending on what holes you chose to put the bolts in, it would put your hitch height at a position above your truck bed.
The variance would be, if you put these bolts in the very top holes, that would be the lowest position, that would be 13 inches above the truck bed. If you put them in the very bottom holes which would raise it to the highest, it would be 17 inches, so the range of 13 to 17 inches on the hitch height.A few specs on this, it has a gross towing weight capacity of 15,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or the pin weight is 33,750 pounds. I mentioned the hitch height adjustment. The slider legs do travel ten inches front to back. The kingpin opening is five and three-quarter inches wide. This does come with a three year limited warranty.Now this hitch is designed to go onto base rales and an installation kit for your vehicle. That is not included in this hitch. That would be sold separately. You would have to choose it for your application. We do recommend if its available, a custom installation bracket kit for your application. The custom kits will actually install in half the amount of time as the universal brackets and it also uses a lot of the holes already drilled into your frame on your truck. This hitch will fit the Curt, Valley, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch and Reese Base Rails.I just wanted to show you how the slider tubes would work. Rotate it to the side or if youll notice in color it will show where this indicator pin on the handle would be indicated. Basically if we push it to the very middle which is the red position, that is the unlock position. That would allow these legs to slide front and back ten inches.Once you pull into a campground and youre wanting to position your trailer or RV into the camping position, what you want to do is youll see it will say locked maneuvering position, pointing this way. So if you pull your handle this way, what that will do is itll allow these legs to slide completely ten inches towards your tailgate or towards the trailer and then lock into position, they wont move and what that does is itll give you more clearance between your truck cab and your trailer. When youre maneuvering and you have to make sharp 90 degree turns, it will give you the clearance so the trailer will not hit your cab.Once youre done camping and youre ready to get on the road, you will want to move your trailer closer or right above the axle on your truck. You dont want to haul it all the back in the maneuvering position. What you would do, is push this handle all the way that way and when it says locked towing position, once its in that position, that will allow these legs to slide the ten inches back towards the truck cab and lock into position. Again that will bring your trailer right over your rear axle, which is where you want to be towing it in that position.This will come with the included parts I have sitting right out here, the pins and clips that will attach it to your base rails and the padlock to lock the handle into place.That should do it for review on part number PS30094.

Product is exactly as described. I would prefer not needing a sliding hitch, however, now that I have it I will be able to relax much more and not worry about reserving a campsite to tight to back my fifth in to.25695
We purchased this sliding hitch without much experience. We did some online research before deciding to buy so that we knew what to expect from the hitch and how to install it properly. So far, we are very pleased and satisfied with this product. The hitch is a sturdy, well made unit that came with everything necessary to install immediately. All the hardware, instructions and parts were high quality. Installation, which we did ourselves, was easier than we had anticipated. We thank whoever decided bundling the hitch with the base rails was a good idea! Most other websites were selling them separately and at a higher total cost. Overall, we think our purhase was a great value. It was exactly what we needed at the price we were looking for. 16283
Order & shipping were excellent. Instructions were fairly easy to follow. A picture of how the angle brackets appear installed under the bed when installed would have helped save time. Installation in my 2005 GMC Sierra went very well.32274
The custom install kit for the 1500 and 2500 model is actually the same. If this is the only fifth wheel trailer you are going to tow, and you do not mind having the mounting rails permanently mounted in your truck bed, the 15K Fifth Wheel with Slider, part # PS30094 would work great. The install kit for your vehicle is part # RP50140-58.

Slider hitches have to be un-locked in order to slide rear ward for tight turns. That can either be done by exiting the truck and manually unlocking it or using an electrical un-locking system that is operated by a control panel in cab.
If you do not want to have to un-lock a slider fifth wheel, you have the option of using a Sidewinder, like part # RP61420. A Sidewinder will put the pivot point at the trailers pin box rather than pivoting on the fifth wheel head.

We have numerous 5th wheel trailer hitches for the 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. The best hitch for your truck and trailer combination is largely dependent on the bed length of the truck.

You could either use a slider type fifth-wheel hitch, or if your pin box is compatible you could use a Sidewinder king pin with a fixed position fifth-wheel hitch on your 2011 Dodge Ram 3500.
For a slider fifth-wheel hitch, I would recommend Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Round Tube Slider, part # RP30083 and Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, part # RP50140-58.

Since you have a bed that is less than 6 feet long, you will need to use a standard, stationary 5th wheel trailer hitch with a Sidewinder. The Sidewinder will provide 22 inches of clearance over the 12 inches of clearance of a slider hitch. There are some measurements you will need to take in order to determine if a Sidewinder will offer enough clearance to safely make 90 degree turns.

The shortest bed that is on a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab should be a 6-1/2 foot bed. With the 6-1/2 foot bed you will need to use a fifth-wheel slider hitch to get the clearance between the trailer and the cab of the truck when turning.

It will depend on the manufacturer of the fifth-wheel rails that you are installing and the bed length of your 1989 GMC truck. If you are installing a Reese fifth-wheel hitch you will need to determine if you have a 10 bolt installation kit, or a 4 bolt installation kit.
If you are installing the 10 bolt kit, # RP30035, page 6 of the instructions, see link, shows the installation dimensions. Be sure to match your truck to the year, make and models at the top of the page.

If the 5th wheel rails installed in your 2001 Ford F-350 are Reese, Valley or Curt rails, they will accept either a Reese, Valley, or Curt fixed 5th wheel hitch or a slider hitch without having to make any changes to the rail spacing. But it may help to loosen the rails to better line things up correctly when installing a different hitch.

First, making 90 degree turns will be necessary at some point. Maybe not in all situations but there will be a time that it will be needed. In order to safely make 90 degree turns in trucks with a bed shorter than 6 feet long, you would need to use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer.
The Sidewinder is used with a stationary trailer hitch and offers 22 inches more extension which is 10 inches more than a round tube slider hitch. This will eliminate or minimize the possibility f the trailer m view full answer...

With the year, make, and model of your truck, I would be happy to recommend an installation kit for a 5th wheel trailer hitch. view full answer...
Other than the sliding hitch you referenced, part # PS30094, you will need an install kit that includes the rails to attach the hitch to the truck bed and the brackets that attach the rails to the truck frame. There are two different kits that will work with your F250, a universal kit, part # RP30035 and a custom kit, part # RP50082-58. I would recommend the custom kit, as it will cut your install time by 50 percent.
