Most often used on trucks with 6' and 6-1/2' beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


Non-Binding Design

The round-tube design of this slider allows for relatively uninhibited movement of your fifth-wheel hitch. Because your hitch can glide smoothly and easily along the rods, there is less chance of binding.


With straight, flat contact points, as found with square-tube sliders, tension can build between the slider and the hitch when your truck and trailer are somewhat out of line or are on uneven ground. As a result, it can be difficult to properly activate the slider when your truck and trailer are not in a straight line.


With a round-tube slider, there is more give between the contacting surfaces, allowing better mobility of the hitch system. Fewer corners means less tension buildup. Activating a round-tube slider is easier, and operation as a whole is smoother.

The hitch arrived in perfect condition, the packaging is excellent and protects the product very well. The directions are well laid out and easy to follow. Total assemble was less than 20 min. However I am using the Curt Q16 hitch head which is listed as a replacement and while there are bolt holes perfectly aligned for this application they are not threaded like the original mounting arms were so I had to get 4 new nuts and bolts I wanted to make sure I used the exact same hardness so I had to order them. If there had been 4 nuts in the box the entire process would have been a perfectly easily install. I would highly recommend this product

After a year the slider is still working perfectly

Excellent - works as intended. I love the fact this unit was designed to slide while under full pin load. So I don't need to lower the front levelers and take the load off to make it slide. The only down side is that the spring loaded slider bar takes a lot of strength to get it "cocked" to allow sliding in either direction. This may loosen up with some use. I would definitely recommend purchase of this unit.
