Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel DM6003 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement side plates for the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, and this is for the above bed mount. This part will replace the side plates that come standard on your Demco Hijacker Autoslide Above Bed Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. These will basically bolt onto the hitch base so that you can attach your hitch to your universal above-bed rails. These are the tabs that will go right into the rails. This is designed to fit the 13,000 pound Demco Hijacker part number DM8550040, also fits on the 18,000 pound Hijacker DM8550034, and the 21,000 pound Hijacker DM8550035 models. This is a simple bolt-on installation to your hitch base. The multiple rows of bolt holes you can see right here, this will let you adjust the hitch height, so it'll give you a range of hitch height settings from 15 1/4 inches to 16 1/2 to 18 inches. These parts do have a rust resistant black powder coat finish to them.

They are an all steel construction. It does come with the detailed instructions, comes with the mounting hardware, and the pins and clips which are used to go through there when you drop these into your above bed rails to attach them to the rails. This part is made in the U.S.A. That should do it for the review of the replacement side plates for the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, with the above bed mount.

Called to get a little more information about this product and the person i spoke with was very knowledgeable and friendly. Parts were just what i needed to complete my hitch install. Product got here ahead of projected time. Price was about 20 bucks higher for same brackets [online], but they didn't have anyone to ask questions to. Seems to be a great place to buy from. 846137

I recently purchased a new truck and was met with a mounting issue when I tried to put my Demco Super Slider 5th wheel hitch from my old truck into my new 2019 Chevy Silvarado. I had a trip planned for the following week so I called etrailer and explained my problem. They troubleshot the issue and were able to get me the adapter plates needed in two day so my trip was not postponed. 677538

On the initial order the product was not in stock, etrailer was upfront and told me when it was expected to arrive and offered to cancel my order . The Demco adapter arrived earlier than they told me and the part fit great and assembled easily. Dave G. 326056
