Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A20 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


Three-Point Indicator System

A20 Color Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator - either the one on the handle or the one on the hitch itself - to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green).


R20 Slider

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.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - C16669 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, with the R20 Slider for the Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package, and it has a 20,000 pound weight capacity.Now, this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks with the 6-1/2' bed and the factory rail kit. And on a custom fit part, I'd always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application.Now, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed, so that you can tow your fifth wheel tailor. It's mounted on this non-binding slider to provide clearance that's required for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds. It'll give you a slider travel of 12 inches front to back. That extra clearance will prevent your trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during sharp, slow-speed turns.

And it slides smoothly on the rounded non-binding rods.This is designed for use on trucks with beds shorter than eight foot, and it's not recommended for use on truck beds shorter than six foot.The head on this uses a nice two-jaw locking system here. Provides a 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact, because of that it'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide-bar models.Does have two lube points, with easy to access grease zerk fittings, one on each jaw. Right here, very easy to get to. You put your grease gun right on there and lubricate the jaws.Also, has a fast one-pin head removal, makes it easy for one person to remove the hitch from your truck. Right here, if you just pull this pin, slide this large pin out, you can take that out of the cross member and then take it apart.

So one person could remove it.Now, when you do bolt your cross member to your slider here, it does give you a four-inch hitch height adjustment. So range of anywhere from 18-3/4" to 22-3/4". And hitch height is always measured from your truck bed to the top of the hitch head.And hitch height adjustment is critical, because when you tow your fifth wheel, you do want to make sure it's as level as possible with your tow vehicle. So when you do mount this on it'll give you that four-inch hitch height adjustment.Also, a nice feature on this is the three-point indicator system. It's a color-coding on the handle ...

Oh, actually right here underneath the hitch head. And it's color-coded. It'll tell you if the hitch is ready to uncouple, it'll show red. If it shows yellow, that means you're ready to couple. And if it shows green, like it does now, it means the jaws are closed, you're ready to tow.And what's nice about this, if your cab's right here, you can turn around and look and see the color.

So just by it's visible from your cab, you can turn around and see what position your jaws are in.It does have a nice lockable handle, lets you easily secure the trailer to the hitch. Basically it comes with a pinning clip, but if you wanted extra security, the hole is large enough you could put a padlock through there. We do sell those separately. It is a very short-throw single-handle operation. I'm going to show you that here in a minute.Does come with this included plastic lube plate. The lube plate is nice. That'll go onto your king pin on your fifth wheel. And when you go to hook up, it helps it glide smoothly into the hitch during hook-up.Now to install this into your vehicle, it is a very fast, easy installation. Basically you just drop this into the floor receiver pucks that are built into your factory underbed rails. Right here you just go to each corner, pop the pinning clip, rotate your handle here out 90 degrees, and that'll rotate the tab. You do that on each corner, and once they're all open, all you have to do is drop it right into the pucks. The four pucks that are built into your factory rails. Once they drop in, turn that handle that'll rotate the tab to lock them into the pucks. And then put your pinning clip in to hold your handle into place. Very simple to install and simple to remove.This is built with sturdy steel construction. Has a nice durable carbide powder coat finish to it. Again, the three specs on this, the application we mentioned is 2016 and newer, Chevy/GMC trucks at the Factory Installed Towing Prep Package. Gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. Vertical load limit, or pin weight capacity is 5,000 pounds. And we measured the slider travel is 12 inches front to back.So, what I'm going to do now is we're going to demonstrate the jaws, and I'm going to demonstrate the slider, how it operates. So for the jaws, here's an example of a king pin, what the king pin would look like on your fifth wheel.So, what you want to do first is pop your pinning clip on your handle. And you can see it's tethered here with the lanyard so you can't lose it. And then you just take your short-throw handle, pull it out, rotate it back, and your jaws you can see pop open. You're ready to hook up.And we mentioned the color-coding. Now if you look at it, it's showing a yellow triangle, which yellow means you're ready to couple. If it showed red, it means it's uncoupled, you're not ready to couple yet.So basically what'll happen is you go to couple, your king pin will slide in between two jaws. Once it gets in far enough you notice the jaws completely close around there. The handle slides up, the holes line up.Let's look at the color-coding. It's showing a round green circle. So you're already ready to tow. Take your pinning clip, drop it through, clip it. Your handle's locked into place. You're all ready to go.And again, just to remove it, pop your pinning clip. You want to hold onto this so it doesn't pop it off, but you just pull your handle, rotate it back, and it shoots the king pin right out.Now, if you get into your camp ground and need to make some tight turns, you want to gain that extra 12 inches of clearance on the slider, the way you would do that, just go over here to your slider, got your slider handle. Right now it's locked in the towing position. It'll say right here, towing position, so that's closest to the cab.So, when you get to your campground, you want to slide that extra 12 inches to the maneuvering position. Just take your handle and pull it out and then turn it away from the maneuvering position. So turn it towards the cab. And when you do that it'll automatically slide to the maneuvering position. And you can see once it gets there, the handle automatically rotates and locks it into place. Now you can do all your maneuvering.Then when you're done camping, you're ready to get back out on the road to tow, just pull this and do the same thing. Turn it away from the position you're going to, or away from the cab. And then it'll slide right into the towing position. Again, lock right into place. Good, simple movement.But that should do it for the review on the Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the R20 Slider, for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Packages. And has a 20,000 pound weight capacity.

Very nice hitch. Works great with the factory 5th wheel hitch setup in my GMC 2500. Easy in and out when I need to remove it. System works perfect with my Montana 5th wheel. 634630

Hitch is very nice, although it is much heavier than I anticipated. Had to assemble in place in the truck as I do not think two people could possibly lift it into the truck. The safety cross pins that slide onto the pins that hold the rail system to the GM puck adapter plate are difficult to insert as the slide rail base is very wide. I ordered this over the phone and Shawn at etrailer.com provided fantastic customer service. Thank you Shawn! 628742

Everything went as described. Don't believe they could have made an easier install. Will be hooking to 5th wheel for first time Saturday. Little heavy but was able to handle it. So easy to go together one man can do it without an extra hand helping. Work smart not hard! 694946

Now this is what I'm talking about. This hitch is great! Very tough, rugged, dependable for all your 5th wheel towing needs. Easy smooth operation to switch from maneuverable position for those tight and sometimes hard to get into spots. Switching to towing mode is a breeze. This hitch limits that bucking and chugging effect as you tow down the highway. Easy to install and in my case I got the over kill with this 18,000 pound towing capacity. I only have a 13,000 pound RV; however I wanted that peace of mind knowing that I have enough strength and security behind me in the bed of my truck. Thanks etrailer for offering great products. 686855

Very nice hitch, easy assembly. Haven’t had any problems hooking up, head has play so you don’t need to be perfect backing into hitch. Bought a ram 17 Cummins and this hitch to go with it at same time between the hitch and truck can’t tell the 12000 lbs camper is back there. Very little hitch noise. Easy and fast shipping also. The only complaint is the hitch is heavy! Make sure you have help to remove or install. 614499

The product arrived 1 day earlier than promised. The instructions were decent, they could of been more inclusive of the different setups, the hitch and sliders didn’t reference how to interface with the Ram puck base. The rubber gaskets for the slider base didn’t fit with the Ram base due to their thickness. You need a 100lbs torque wrench(I rented one from Orielys). All the parts were present. The bad may not of been etrailers fault, but the boxes arrived like they were dropped out of an airplane. Amazingly, nothing was damaged. 712034

The Hitch is great once you figure out the correct steps to put it all together. You should have information in the directions that has a link to a video that shows you step by step process to assemble the hitch. The directions are veg ( not dummy prof ) on step by step assembly. After we assembling the hitch it would not fit into the pucks in the truck correctly. So I went online and looked up a video on Curt A20 5th wheel hitch installation and viewed my obvious mistake. There are to many options in your directions, make a video. 652112

Very heavy duty hitch. Initially had some concerns so ordered the 20,000 lbs. instead of the 16000. Very good service from the etrailer representatives. Had some concerns on how long the delivery was going to take, however they were able to get it to me in a very short time. Thank you to the individuals who helped with my order. Danny 340534

The quality of the product is what I expected, Excellent. I encountered the same problems with the packing as several others have. The exterior of my box was perfect, completely in tack. The problems were with the way the product was packed inside the box. The Styrofoam was destroyed along with the 1/8 inch thick piece of paneling, which allowed the right side leg of the hitch to bounce around and end up scratching the center member of the hitch, no bigger a little touch up paint couldn't fix. But, really people a 1/8 inch piece of paneling trying to contain a 140 pound hitch, lets start with a 1/4 inch piece of plywood and go up from there. Thank you. 633958

I had a reese slide bar hitch that was worn out. I decided to do with the A20 over the B&W mainly because of the cost. After enough research I found out my old rails wouldn't work because they didn't have the extra slots for the wider base. Etrailer had the complete universal kit that worked great. Was easy to unbolt old rails and replace with the new ones. I was able to reuse my original brackets mounted to frame which I liked better than the universal ones. Took maybe an hour to put everything together. I like the smoothness of the latch opening and closing the jaws Hitch looks well built and I guess the 140lb it weighs says so. Etrailer shipped quickly. 481260

The R20 Roller and the A20 Slider were both pretty easy to install. Except for the weight (Those Things Are HEAVY) It was a straight forward install. What I like is the Quality of the Curt Products. They are a very high Quality product in my opinion. I plan on the wife and I and our Two Main Coons are planning a cross country trip. So I am very excited to get out on the open Road and see where life takes us. What WAS a bear to install was the Rail Kit. It required lots of trips out from under 402224

This hitch was extremely easy to install! Although the locking handle maneuvered slightly different than the Curt videos I saw online, the intuitive design made it a breeze to set up. As a first time 5th-wheeler, this product has exceeded my expectations so far. I have not towed yet with this unit, but I feel confident that this product will be able to tow my 16k lb 5th wheel. 452620

I recently purchased a fifth wheel hitch for my new truck but wasn't sure I ordered the correct one after hitting the "enter" key! I called etrailer the following morning and found out I had, in fact, ordered the wrong hitch. The young man I spoke with was incredibly helpful - he canceled my initial order, explained what I really needed and why and then placed the order. I went on line the next day and found that the order had somehow been cancelled. I then spoke with LEAH G. She is the bomb. She corrected everything and did her best to expedite shipping including personally making certain that MY shipment was on the last truck of the day. What more can I say. Etrailer.com and Leah G are unbelievably awesome from beginning to end! Thank you for a great experience Conrad 371744

Mixed reviews. I think I picked out a great hitch (Curt A29, part # C16140. Haven't installed it yet. Turns out the mounting system for my 2006 Chevrolet 2500HD 8' long bed isn't the right one (holes don't match up to the frame, only the one in the back for the lower bolt hole). Part number 16418. Emailed information to sales & this was the part recommended for my truck... Still can't install the part... Will have to drill holes both front holes (large & small...)... Doesn't math the video of the 2005 Chevrolet 2500 HD... Appreciate the videos, better than the written instructions included. Once done, hope to give it a 5 star. Will see what is recommended... 454980

Very nice product.....had some initial installation parts issues that etrailer quickly resolved....I've got 18K pounds on this hitch and all is well, including a few steep grade up and downs.....trailer rides nicely in hitch with virtually no chucking....hitch height just fits under the bed cover and I can remove the hitch from the rails in two pieces by myself.... really satisfied....I'd recommend this product 719298

Purchased this Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs Item # C16044 to go in 2019 RAM 3500 DRW and tow 16,750# 40’ fifth wheel with 3,145# hitch weight. Newbie to 5th wheels and I haven’t taken delivery of the trailer yet so I set it in the highest position. Judging by how high it’s sitting I may have to let it down to the next setting. Easy assembly by myself although it is heavy. Seems well made. No adjustments needed to get it to sit in place. Came in 2 boxes and one was torn but nothing missing. Happy with it so far. 694006

Ordered the Curt A20 with Ram OEM puck legs on Friday. etrailer stated shipping would be 3-5 days. The hitch arrived in perfect condition on Monday...simply amazing! The hitch was manageable by myself to install. It comes in 4 pieces: (2) legs, (1) cross member to connect the legs together, and then the hitch head itself. I assembled the legs first and easily lifted them into the bed. I took the hitch pin out of the bracket and installed the bracket with 4 bolts. I then inserted the hitched head back in and replaced the pin. Simple install and the hitch is nice and solid...and does not rattle due to the rubber dampening. 686546

The over all installation was easy. The only pit fall was nowhere does any one talk about if you have a spray in bed liner. If the liner gets on the OEM pucks it has to be scrapped off for the arms to install correctly. It also helps to spray some WD40 on the rubber bushing to remove the head to make it easier. Once it was installed and height set it worked great. My only suggestions would be better packaging and a little more detail on leg placement. Other wise great hitch so far worked great for the first tow so far.. 673627

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


I installed this Hitch on my 2015 F350 6.7l one year ago and absolutely love it.. I have been faithful to the Reese Pro series for ever, so this was a very tough decision to go with Curt and all I can say is that I definitely made the right decision. The hitch fits perfectly under my Pace Edward Jack Rabbit tonneau cover because the release handle lays flat. This enables me to just pull the cover closed after I drop the camper thus keeping the hitch out of sight and my bed dry/extra storage. Now on to function: The slide mechanism works flawlessly and that with a pin weight of 2800lbs. (The Reese always made me fight with the release level) The pin has Zero chuckle Release handle is fantastic, I have been at some odd angles and have never had an issue releasing the pin. What else can I say except I would buy this hitch again in a heart beat. 642137

Love the hitch. fits my 2018 super duty f350- perfect. It is a bit heavy so I use a engine lift to get it into the back of my truck, which work great. I could lift it but I am old and don't want to hurt myself. I have purchased several Items from etrailer and all have been top quality and at a very fair price. 641590

They deliver a solid product in a timely fashion I called customer service before, total professionalism. Although it was my mistake when I call them, because I had the parts that I called about. Excellent choice for parts. 633716

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


Very happy with etrailer and the purchase of Curt 20K fifth wheel hitch for my new Ram 3500 that fit perfectly in the factory fifth wheel prep package. etrailer customers service was helpful with questions about the shipment while in transit. The hitch came in two cartons and the assembly was straight forward with easy to follow instructions. The Curt hitch is a high quality well engendered device with well thought out features that should perform greatly for many years to come. 610298

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD LTZ Short Bed Towing a High Country 380TH
  • The absolute best 5th wheel hitch to use on your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LTZ while pulling a Keystone Montana High Country 380TH is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550034. The Hijacker is unique in that it has an auto sliding feature that will move the pivot point away from the cab during sharp turns to avoid interference. It also has a wraparound locking jaw which will provide excellent security of the king pin. In order to use the Hijacker with the...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Silverado 2500 Short-Bed Towing Montana 5th Wheel
  • A short-bed pickup like your 6-1/2-foot-bed 2018 Silverado 2500 will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch in order to have enough turning clearance to avoid contact between the truck cab and the trailer overhang. Slider hitches come in both manual and automatic types. Since your Montana has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 16750-lbs I suggest selecting a hitch with a 20K weight rating to provide you with a good safety margin. If your 2500 does NOT have the factory 5th wheel...

  • Can PullRite SuperGlide 3100 5th Wheel Hitch Be Used on 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 with Factory Pucks
  • We do not currently carry PullRite products but based on my research your 3100 model SuperGlide uses very specific mounting rails (not industry-standard) that are only designed to fit truck beds that are less than 6 feet. With this in mind the hitch is not compatible with the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6194, which drops into the factory pucks on your new GMC to provide industry-standard, above-bed base rails. From the information I was able to find it doesn't look like the hitch...

  • Is Curt Slider A20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16669 Good Option for 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with OEM Rail Kit
  • Since your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with OEM rail kit is a short bed truck you'll need a slider fifth wheel hitch to tow a fifth wheel trailer. The slider hitches give you the needed clearance to make tight turns unlike a fixed hitch which sits stationary. The Curt A20 part # C16669 is a really great option for a hitch for your application. It fits directly to the rail kit of your truck and gives you a high quality fifth wheel hitch that has a jaw system that holds the king pin tightly for...

  • Will Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch for GM Factory Prep Package Fit 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • Since your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 has a short bed and has the factory prep package then the Curt A20 5th wheel trailer hitch you need is actually # C16669. For the 2017 Chevy trucks the short bed models have a different factory puck spacing than the long bed models and that is why hitch # C16064 will not work.

  • Which Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fits a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Puck System
  • The Curt A20 fifth wheel trailer hitch that fits your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 is either part # C16064, for a long bed, or the slider, part # C16669, if you have a short bed. The # C16669 is basically the sliding A20, part # C16541, combined with the adapter, part # C16023, to fit into your truck's factory puck system. The fixed # C16064 fits right into the pucks with no adapter. The sliding hitch will provide more turning clearance by traveling up to 12 inches. Also, if you would like...

  • Recommended Curt 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra Short Bed with Factory Puck System
  • I believe you are referring to the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider # C16671, which is a confirmed fit and what I recommend for your Sierra 3500 if it has the 6-1/2 foot bed. The primary difference between the Curt Q20 and the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16669 that you also mentioned is that the Q20 features a unique, spherical axial bearing that allows it to move 360 degrees. This will provide a smoother and much more enjoyable ride when pulling your trailer when...

  • Can a Reese Signature Series Hitch be Adapted to Fit Factory Prep Package in 2018 Silverado 2500
  • Curt makes the under bed factory system in your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed so there isn't a way to adapt the Reese Signature Series hitch to fit the factory mounts. I recommend a hitch that is a direct fit to the factory system in your truck such as: Curt 20K hitch # C16669 (This is my top pick because of the cushioned head for a better ride) Curt 16K hitch # C16668 B&W 20K hitch # BWRVK3770 I have included links to each of these hitches for you. A slider hitch will be...

  • Will a Reese Signature Series Hitch Fit Factory Mount System in a 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed
  • No, unfortunately the Reese Signature Series 5th wheel trailer hitches will not fit the factory puck system in the 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 short bed. But there are hitches that will fit. I recommend the B&W Companion # BWRVK3770. It is a direct fit and it is a slider hitch for more turning clearance when towing with a flat bed truck. Another option is Curt hitch # C16669. It is also a direct fit to the factory system in your truck.

  • Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Installed in Bed of 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed with OEM Rail Kit
  • It's not uncommon for people to install fifth wheel hitches in the bed of their trucks like the Curt A20 for GM Rail Kits part # C16064 that you referenced. This is a solid hitch, but since your truck is a short bed you'd instead need the slider versions part # C16669 to give you the clearance to make tight turns without the cab of your truck hitting the nose of the trailer. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • How Does Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch Install in Bed of 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 with OEM Rail Kit

A standard Q20 hitch for above bed rails without an adapter would. Worth noting is that Curt updated the Q Series of hitches...

  • Curt 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 with Hitch Prep
  • The factory rail kit in the 2018 GM trucks like yours are slightly different based on the length of the truck's bed. So the hitches for a long bed do not fit the short bed and vice versa. Since you have a short bed you'd want the Curt A20 slider hitch with the GM Rail Kit Adapter part # C16669 and you'd be set. You need a slider hitch so that you have enough clearance to make tight turns without cab/trailer nose interference. Sliding the hitch back allows you more clearance there.

  • Towing 5th Wheel Trailer with 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 Equipped with Factory Rail Kit
  • It sounds like you have the factory rail kit on your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 and you are referring to popping out the covers for the 5th wheel pucks that surround the center gooseneck ball hole. If this is not correct please just let me know. If this is the case though then you absolutely can just remove the gooseneck ball, take those covers out, and drop in a 5th wheel hitch that is designed for the rail kit on your truck to pull a 5th wheel trailer. If you have the 8 foot bed I recommend...

  • Best Fitting 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with Factory Prep Package
  • In my opinion the best fitting USA-made 5th wheel hitch for your 2018 Silverado 3500 with factory prep is the B&W Companion model # BWRVK3770. B&W does all their own fabrication in-house and builds this hitch with heavy-duty 1-inch-thick hitch jaws for rattle-free grip on the king pin, a fully-articulated head assembly for easier hitching on uneven ground and high-grade steel for long term durability. These features make the 20K Companion # BWRVK3770 an industry benchmark. You don't...

  • How to Prevent Pin Box from Hitting Bedside on a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • It sounds like you are saying that the pin box on your 5th wheel trailer is coming into contact with the bedsides on your truck. If that is the case then in order to fix this issue you will need to raise the 5th wheel hitch head up to the highest setting (if applicable). However, this may then make the trailer unlevel so if that is the case you will need to either adjust the pin box inside the wing set on the trailer (if applicable) and or raise the height of the trailer.

  • Can B&W Patriot Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Mount to 2019 Chevy 3500 With Factory Prep Package
  • While there are ways to mount standard 5th wheel hitchers to a 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the factory prep package, unfortunately the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 is the one hitch that cannot be used with the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6194 that fits your truck because the bracing required for the puck locations interferes with the Patriot. What that means is that you will need a new 5th wheel hitch in order to tow with your truck, and to offset the cost, you should be able to get...

There won't be an adapters or additional parts needed either. This combo is going to provide a really smooth ride as it is going to eliminate a lot of chucking and jarring.

We do carry the Demco Hijacker AutoSlider part # DM8550037 which is similar to the Pullrite but in a lot of ways better. Although they both have the single-jaw system to lock the king pin into place, the SuperGlide hugs it against the side of the head whereas the Hijacker has an extra piece that locks it directly in the middle of the hitch head. The Hijacker also has a 3/4" thick, solid steel...
