Perfect for short-bed trucks, this fifth-wheel trailer hitch has a slider that moves the hitch and king pin 10" closer to the tailgate to increase turning clearance. A 4-way-pivoting head with rounded slide bar ensures secure trailer hookup.
Note: This fifth-wheel trailer hitch will not fit trucks with beds shorter than 6'. It also will not fit trucks with flareside/stepside beds. A minimum 13" extended trailer pin box is recommended. If using a slider, hitch will not adjust to lowest height setting.
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.
Install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch with this universal, 10-bolt kit. Spacers ensure proper spacing despite the deep corrugations in your pickup's bed. Not for use with Reese Elite Series (or Signature Series) model hitches.

Installation took me around 8 hours, with no help and never have installing one before. Learned a lot as I went but really pretty straight forward.39799

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

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

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
