Expert Answers about Demco Rv

  • How Much Does Demco Hijacker #DM8550024 Weigh for Removing Hitch
  • The head of the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550024 weighs 65 lbs. The total weight of the hitch with the head would be 289 lbs. You would need two people to get this hitch in and out or you could use the MaxxTow Crane part # MT70238 that is designed to install in the hitch of a truck.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed with Rail Kit
  • The hitch I would recommend for your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed with the factory rail kit is the Demco Auto Slider part # DM8550038. This hitch has a 21k capacity, but what really makes it nice is that it attaches directly to your rail kit and automatically slides as you make tight turns instead of forcing you to get out of your truck every time you need to slide the hitch. It's not super lightweight but can easily be broken down into smaller sections to make removing it easier. I attached...

  • Comparing Demco 5th Wheel Auto Slide Hitches 21K DM8550038 and 18K DM8550024
  • Demco 5th wheel hitches # DM8550038 and # DM8550024 are both confirmed fits for your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory installed 5th wheel kit. Both are drop-in installations and both hitches include the automatic slider feature and a generous 14-inches of front-to-back travel for excellent turning clearance. The Demco hitches do include cushioning in the form of polyurethane dampeners that work to reduce noise and shocks from road surfaces. Construction of the Demco hitches is quite...

  • Pullrite Superglide or Demco Hijacker Comparison
  • The advantage the Pullrite Superglide would have over the Reese Titan 20k hitch # RP30870 is that you would never have to get out of your truck to activate the slider. We don't sell Pullrite hitches, but that would be a huge selling point for me to pick it over the Titan. However, I do have an additional option for you to consider that we DO offer that does automatically slide like the Pullrite. I really like the Demco Hijack part # DM8550034. This hitch would work similarly to the...

  • Is the PullRite SuperGlide or Demco Hijacker Autoslide Better for a MORryde RPB72-1621HD Pin Box
  • The 18K Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 is definitely the way you want to go, and that is not just because we carry it. When comparing the Hijacker Autoslide to the PullRite SuperGlide you actually get much more at a lower price-point. The things that the 18K Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 and the 18K SuperGlide have in common are that they both offer 14" of travel, they are both automatic sliding 5th wheel hitches, have 2-point pivoting hitch heads, are compatible with industry standard...

  • Adapter Needed for 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the Factory Puck System
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6194 is an adapter rated for 21K that changes the factory puck system on a GMC or Chevy so that a 5th wheel hitch that installs on industry standard rails can be used for your towing setup. It will fit and work well with the puck system on your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 if it has a short bed.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch and Underbed Rails for 2017 Ford F-250 With Long Bed
  • I'd be happy to help you when it comes to fifth wheel hitches. Essentially, to mount a fifth wheel hitch you need rails, and there are two types of rails: in-bed and underbed. The in-bed rails will be, as the name suggests, installed and exposed on top of your truck bed so you when you remove the fifth wheel hitch they would still be present. Underbed rails will be hidden and allow for complete bed access when your fifth wheel hitch is removed. Some trucks have an optional package that...

  • Adapter Recommendation for 2017 GMC/Chevy Factory Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for Reese Hitch
  • There finally is a picture frame style adapter that fits your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500's factory rail kit. For that you would want the part # DM6194 which fits your truck and provides industry standard rails for the R16 Titan Hitch part # RP30867 to fit.

  • Dimensions of the 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Nissan Titan XD # DM6200
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Nissan Titan XD OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 21,000 lbs # DM6200 has the standard measurement locations to fit with all the industry standard hitch sizes measuring 22 inches by either 29 or 20-1/2 inches.

  • Comparing the Demco 5th Wheel Adapter to the Curt 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for Chevy/GMC Tow Package
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 6-1/2' Bed - 21K # DM6194 will have 4 corners that drop into your pucks and the center post will fit into your gooseneck hitch location. The center post has a lever to lock the adapter into place and then a thumb screw tightens that down to secure it. The 5th wheel hitch will fit right over this adapter to make it more secure. I've attached a video to help. That 5th point of connection is the biggest...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
  • Yes, the 2018 Ford F250 will work fine for the 5th wheel you mentioned. I recommend going with the factory rail kit to give you a clean bed when you are not towing. I also recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider - Single Jaw - Ford Super Duty Prep Package - 18K # DM8550024 which will automatically slide to give you turning clearance for your short bed truck. This particular hitch it designed specifically for your truck. If you prefer a manual slider option,...

  • Comparing Demco Hijacker and Pullrite Superglide Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500
  • The things that the 18K Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 and the 18K SuperGlide have in common are that they both offer 14" of travel, they are both automatic sliding 5th wheel hitches, have 2-point pivoting hitch heads, are compatible with industry standard base rails, and they are both rated to tow up to an 18K trailer. Both 5th wheel hitches come with a 5-year limited warranty as well. Although they both have the single-jaw system to lock the king pin into place, the SuperGlide hugs it...

  • Parts Needed to Install Demco Hijacker Autoslide DM8550024 on 2016 Ford F250 6.5ft w/ Factory Rails
  • Yes, the Demco Hihacker Autoslide # DM8550024 is the 18K 5th wheel hitch you ordered and will be compatible with your 2016 Ford F-250 6.5 foot bed with factory installed underbed rail kit. The Demco Hijacker Autoslide fifth wheel hitch # DM8550024 comes assembled from the factory to help make the installation easier and quicker. The only prep work necessary is to bolt on the side plates, which are included. You will not need any additional parts to install the Hijacker, but I did...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch For Short Bed Truck With Rails Installed
  • The rails in your 2005 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 foot bed are standard rails compatible with most hitches. Because you have a short bed, you will need a sliding hitch. There are a few options for you, but I'll give you a recommendation for an auto-slide and a manual sliding hitch. The reason you will need a sliding hitch is because the clearance between your truck and trailer is limited due to the short box, so you want to make sure you have the ability to turn in tight spaces without having...

  • Dimensions of Demco Hijacker Autoslide for Ford Super Duty Prep Package

  • Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed with B and W Gooseneck Hitch
  • I have a slider fifth wheel hitch that can fit the B and W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1117 you have installed in the bed of your truck, but there's no way to install a Demco auto slide hitch to a B and W gooseneck. What you'd want instead is the Companion Slider part # BWRVK3400 which will allow you to slide the hitch back when making a tight turn to prevent cab to trailer interference.

  • Recommended Base Rail Kit for 2018 Chevy Silverado Short Bed to Install Demco Hijacker
  • If your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 has the 6-1/2 foot bed and isn't equipped with the factory pucks/rail kit, then I recommend the Demco Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552011-71. This kit will include everything needed to attach the excellent Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 that you referenced to your Silverado. The custom brackets in the kit will use existing holes in the truck's frame to eliminate the need to drill into the frame during installation. I have attached...

  • Does the Hitch Head Easily Remove for an Autoslide Hijacker That Fits a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The 5th wheel hitch head on the both the 18K # DM8550024 and the 21K # DM8550038 Hijacker Autoslide for your 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty is easily removed. There is a simple pin system that needs to be removed to take the hith head (which weighs about 60 lbs) off of the body of the hitch. I have attached a picture from the installation details highlighting this for you to check out. If you have a Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, or 5th Airborne pin box, you must install a special...

  • Recommendation on a Lightweight 5th Wheel Hitch That is Compatible With a Sidewinder Pin Box
  • I have a solution for you. The Demco Recon 5th Wheel Hitch, # DM8550043, is a lightweight above the bed mounted hitch that is rated a 21K. The total weight of this hitch is 100 lbs. The Demco Recon will mount to the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500 using standard bedrails, like the Demco Universal Bed Rails, # DM6071. If your Ram has the OEM 5th Wheel Towing Pre Package, you can us the Reese 5th Wheel Adapter, # RP30154, to mount the Demco Recon to your vehicle. The Reese adapter will sit...

  • For your 2018 Ford F-350 short bed with the factory hitch prep package, the Demco Hijacker AutoSlide Hitch, Item # DM8550038, will work well for you. It is a confirmed fit for the 4 receiver puck system in your truck and will automatically slide back when you are in a tight turn to give the clearance you need. You will need locking plates to use a Trailair pin box like the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate, Item # DM6095. With regards to maintenance, follow the guidelines in...

  • Will Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram DM6099 Accept Reese 5th Wheel Hitch RP30047

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Factory Rail Kit
  • The rail kits for the 2017 Ram 3500 resemble a very spread out version of the Reese Elite fifth wheel underbed rail kits. We have adapters that allow standard fifth wheel hitches to fit the rail kits but nothing that fits directly. Since your truck is a short bed you will have to use a slider hitch to allow you to make tight turns. Since activating a slider everytime you get to a parking lot is a bit of a hassle I like to recommend the auto sliding Demco Hijacker part # DM8550035. This...

  • Is a Capture Plate Needed to use Demco Hijacker With Trailair Flex Air on 2017 Ford F-250?
  • I spoke with a representative of Demco who confirmed for me that you will need to use Demco Hijacker Autoslide Capture Plates # DM6171 along with the Demco Hijacker # DM8550024 fifth wheel hitch if you have a Trailair Flex Air such as # LC328492. The Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550024 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 with the factory prep package; I've added a link to a video review of the hitch and capture plate for you to take a look at as well.

  • Tow Bar and Other Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Ford F-150 Behind a Class C Motorhome
  • The first thing to do is to check your owner's manual to make sure the 2013 Ford F-150 can be flat towed without causing it any damage. From my research it can as long as it has 4-wheel drive. The rear wheel drive cannot; at least not without adding after market parts for the transmission. If this is the case for your truck then I recommend talking to a Ford dealership before flat towing it. If you are able to flat tow your truck then there are several parts you need. You need the...

  • Installation of Locking Plate for AirRide Pin Box with Demco 5th Wheel AutoSlide Hitch
  • The instructions state that with the use of the Demco Adapter Plate # DM6095 the locking plates on hitch head are not needed when using this kit. They can be extended all the way out or removed. Per Demco the # DM6095 is only compatible with the Trailair Tri-Glide Pin Boxes. I really like the Demco Hijacker's AutoSlide technology because you never have to get in or out of your bed to adjust the hitch from towing to turning, it just automatically takes care of it for you. The Demco...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Air Bags for 2015 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • A fixed fifth wheel hitch and Reese Sidewinder combination like what you referenced is the exact setup that you need to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2015 Ford F-150 short box. Starting with the fifth wheel trailer hitch itself, the Demco Recon # DM8550043 that you are looking at is a really nice option. This is a heavy-duty hitch that features a wraparound, single-piece jaw for a secure connection with the trailer, and it comes in 2 lightweight pieces to allow for fast and easy...

  • Fifth Wheel Adapter for PullRite Hitch on 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 With Puck System
  • There is an adapter that will work for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 6-1/2 foot bed with factory pucks, the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC # DM6194. This will fit your PullRite Slider if it is an ISR Series that mounts to industry standard rails. I would love to give you a few different recommendations, but the Demco rails are the only option that fit into your '18 Silverado's puck system. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you to take a look at.

  • Demco Hijacker Autoslide Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Air Cushioned Pin Boxes
  • The Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 is a sliding fifth wheel trailer hitch which you may need with a 6 foot bed. The advantage of the Hijacker over most hitches is that it slides automatically when turning so you don't need to get out of your truck and manually activate the sliding feature. To install the Hijacker in your 2004 Dodge Ram use the install kit # DM8552015-71. The Demco is fine to tow trailers that has a standard pin however you will need a different locking plate...

  • For your 2017 Ram 3500 6-1/2 Foot Bed without Factory Rail Kit you'll need a slider hitch to allow you to make tight turns without cab interference. My favorite slider hitches are the ones that automatically slide as you make tight turns as that saves you the hassle of getting out and activating the slider every time it's needed. For that I would recommend the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550037 and the install rail kit part # DM8551006. This is an underbed rail kit too which means when...

There isn't a size difference between teh 18k Demco Autoslide part # DM8550034 and the 21k part # DM8550035. There is about a 25 lb difference.
