Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


Item works exactly as described. I have a shortbed (6.5') Ford F350. Probably towed our 5th wheeler 5000+ miles with no problem. Then last year it happened! We were making a sharp turn in an uneven lot and POW, the 5vr hit the rear window and it exploded. After that I became gun shy about turning with the 5vr attached so I started looking at sliding hitches. A slider that you had to get out and unlatch to make work, didn't make sense to me. At what point do you get out? So, an auto slider hitch was purchased. Now when I get to a certain degree turn the auto-slide hitch moves back in its carriage and then auto-slides to the normal location once straightened out. Not gun shy anymore. Pro: Well packaged Well made Easy install It WORKS. Cons: Price Very heavy Some clunking after it straightens out from a turn


Comments
The hitch still works as described. Have not broken another rear window since installing it. I have learned that when unhooking from 5vr I have to take a pry bar to straighten out the hitch back to straight for rehooking. The only thing I do not like is the serious clunking that seems to occur when making some turns, then accelerating and the hitch straitening out. Thats the only real complaint I have. Since installation of the Demco I do not worry about making sharp turns!

Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


I have a 2017 Ford F-250 (Crew Cab, short box), and a 40’ 14,000lb 5th wheel. I’ve owned this Demco Autoslide for 1 year, and I absolutely love it. I purchased a 5th wheel for the maneuverability, but my expectations were blown away with this Autoslide. I also have the Extang Xceed hard tonneau cover, and when folded up (laying flat on the panel closest to the cab) I can maneuver however I want without removing the tonneau. If im going to make a really sharp turn on uneven ground I’ll stop and flip my tonneau all the way up, but very rarely do I have to do that. Also removal & install of this hitch is about as easy as removing & installing a 5th wheel hitch can possibly be. I use a rope, pulley, & my side by side. Highly recommend this Demco hitch.

Excellent choice for a short bed Super Duty . Have towed several thousand miles with no issues. This is a heavy hitch , but that is what you get with a heavy duty Demco hitch . Plenty of room between trailer and truck when doing tight turns.

Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


Very happy with my Demco Autoslide hitch after one year. We pull a Montana 3120 35 ft 5th wheel with a 2019 Ford F-350 short bed. Took a month long 6,000 mile trip from Colorado to New England/Canada this Summer. Lots of hilly/curvy roads and some remote campgrounds with tight corners and some near 80 degree back ins. Never came close to trailer contacting the truck. I’ve had no jerking or other issues when turning or stoping/starting. Works great. The only drawback is there isn’t much room for error when you back up to hook up the trailer, so it takes a little practice to get used to correctly lining up your Demco Hitch to the trailer. The first couple of trips, it took me 3 or 4 attempts to properly line it up. No longer an issue for me after a few trips and you get used to the angles. It weighs about 300 pounds. I got a small chain hoist which I installed in my garage rafters and easily lift the hitch in and out of my truck and just let it hang front he rafters until I need to use it.


Comments
One thing to consider - there are a lot of small springs and levers working inside the hitch head to work the king pin jaws. While this 5th wheel hitch is certainly robust and designed to take a beating from your 5th wheel when towing, it wasnt designed to support its own weight for extended periods of time.

Now been two years and have about 15,000 miles on my Demco Autoslide Hitch. Still works terrific with my 35 ft Montana on the F350 truck. Never a problem traveling or hitching up.

The Demco Auto slide takes the worry out of towing my fifth wheel trailer with a short bed F-350. I have had no problems with backing into tight camping spots. And since everything is automatic I have one less thing to worry about while traveling with a fifth wheel. The only problem is that it is a little on the heavy side, so I just leave it in the truck when not towing. Problem solved. I am extremely happy with the product.

Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


This review is for the Demco Autoslide 21k and accompanying OEM rail adaptor I purchased for a 2020 Ram 3500 Megacab DRW. I've owned it one year. Overall, the hitch performs as I expected. It is high quality, very sturdy and seems like it will last for a long time. I had it installed at the dealer when I purchased the truck. It automatically slides to protect the cab in my 6'4" bed without any incidents. I tow a standard fifth wheel RV. There are a few negatives, which are not necessarily shortcoming of the product but, instead, necessary evils to allow me to have a short bed. First, it is BIG and BULKY. I believe this is just a function of the mechanism required to allow the autosliding feature and I am not really sure there are any other lighter alternatives with this feature. The fact it requires two parts (OEM Puck Rail and hitch), make it even more bulky. It takes up almost the entire bed and prevents most auxillary tank / tool box combos from fitting. Even standard size storage bins will not fit in my bed. I would prefer if they had a custom OEM all-in-one hitch for my truck like they do for the Ford. It adds significant weight, which decreases carrying capacity, which can be at a premium in hauling a heavy fifth wheel. I've never even tried to take it out of the bed due to the weight and difficulty. I also am not very happy with the adjustable catch plate design. It requires significant manipulation loosening and tightening 8 nuts when hitching and unhitching. This requires a step ladder to reach the nuts. I also found out after the fact that it does not come with the right size catch plate attachments for my hitch and I had to purchase a separate part, which added unexpected expense and delayed my taking the RV on its first trip. Overall, I am satisfied with the hitch.

Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


Quality is good. Installation was tricky without a lift. Some of the bed rail bolt holes (passenger side rear rail) where nearly impossible for a large hand to fit the nut on the bolt. Actually had to have my wife crawl under the truck and slide her hand in the brace to install the nut. Getting a decent size torque wrench into the space was also imposible. The front drivers side rail bracket required removing several vehicle lines and wires which was easy however the bracket covered the holes where the wires attached to the frame, so now they are hanging zip tied together. Hitch/ fifth wheel looks good quality but very heavy. Installed a 400 .lb capacity electric winch from harbor freight to lift the hitch. Firestone airbag helper springs was easy install but getting the exact straight cut on the hose end that hooks to the fill port was challenging to keep it from leaking Videos were very helpful

Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


We have had it for one season now. I am very happy with it. I have it in a 2020 F350 crew cab short box. Our new Grand Design 311BH has a cap that's "short bed friendly". But I still didn't want to chance it. In our driveway I have to make a jack knife turn with the trailer going down a slight decline. With out the Hijacker, I would have blown out my back window for sure. It still comes very close to my bed side, but that's all because of my situation. In normal driving conditions and fairly flat RV parks this thing shines! I Did have to modify my Peragon bed cover rails for getting it in my driveway. But it was worth it. I am new to 5th wheels but towing. And this hitch takes a lot of stress out of backing up and turning tight corners. I did lower the rear of my truck about 1 1/2" and lowered the pin box a little over an inch as well. This gave me more room between the bed and 5th wheel. As well as keeping the rig level going down the road. I have the hijacker in the middle height adjustment and my cover slides right over the top of it with a little room to spare. I also run airbags to keep everything level. I heard about troubles backing into the hitch when the side bars are set. I have not had any troubles lining up to back in. The head does move a little so you don't need to be perfect. I originally planned on loosening the side bars up and tightening them every time. But I forgot once pulling out of the driveway and the pin box hopped the side bars. Scared the crap out of me. After that I never loosen them up. I leave it set snug to the pin box. Since then it's been smooth sailing. Another thing to mention is, this hitch is heavy. It is a 2 person job or with some mechanical assistance. I did get it in the truck and out a couple times by myself (5'9" 150lb), but I opted for my tractor with fork extensions. This worked, but is hard to line up the pucks. So I put a hoist on a trolley in my garage. This is great for lining it up. I marked my floor for my back tire then the trolley lets you drop it right where it needs to go. I also saved the pallet the hitch came on, and added casters. Now when I hoist it out of the truck, I drop it on the pallet and wheel it to it's spot. I hope this helps anyone looking at it. If you are going back and forth between manual slide and an auto slide. Think of when you will need it. When your turning off a busy road in a tight fuel station or similar situation. You don't want to get out and screw around with your manual slider. OR if you forget your slider and blow out your back window. Not only is your trip ruined, but now it's a deductible on your insurance to have it fixed ( if it hits the cab not just the window). I looked at both styles and the extra money up front was worth not ruining my truck. And not finding myself in a stressful situation. I would but this hitch over and over again. It's built like heavy duty farm equipment. You will not be disappointed!

Review from a similar Hijacker Autoslide in Accessories and Parts


Wow, where to begin. I can't imagine towing a 5th wheel trailer in a shorter bed truck without an autoslide setup. After the initial install I noted on the 2nd(?) trip a clunking noise during acceleration after a stop - a couple emails back and forth with Demco support, as well as a quick phone call, and it was all sorted out (user error) with no further issues - Thank you Demco! I tow a short & light Jayco 5th wheel with a 1/2 ton shortbed and having the ability to drive, turn, and park the camper without having to get out of the truck to manually engage or disengage a slide on the hitch has made for much more relaxing weekends away. The Hijacker autoslide gives PLENTY of space between the camper and cab and I've never had to worry, but I did my homework and ran the numbers well before I purchased my hitch so I wasn't surprised. I would say the only downside for me would be the weight and bulkiness of the hitch. Not having the means to easily remove and store it between trips, the hitch is forced to live in the bed of the truck right now, but I did know about the weight going into the purchase. All in all, for the peace of mind the Demco autoslide gives me, I'd spend the money all over again.
