Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Hey, guys. It's Jake here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Demco Auto slide 13,000 pound Automatic Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch. Now, right off the bat, the biggest difference other than the size itself compared to other 5th wheels is going to be that your kingpin on your 5th wheel camper is going to lock into the head. So your kingpin will not rotate anymore, but it's going to take this head. When you make turns, it'll rotate this whole head. more

B and W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch Installation - 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Hey, everyone, Ryan here at etrailer. Today, on our 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty, we're gonna be checking out the B&W Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for vehicles that have the OEM prep package. So it's pretty cool that Ford and other manufacturers at that started equipping some of their vehicles with the prep packages right from the factory. It makes it super convenient to use a fifth wheel-type hitch like the B&W or even a gooseneck for that matter, considering everything's kind of ready to rock and roll. You essentially just take the hitch and drop it into place. This particular hitch is going to be fixed, meaning it's not gonna slide or anything along those lines. more

Hey, everyone, Ryan here at etrailer. Today, on our 2023 Ford F-350, we're gonna be checking out the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch for trucks that have the OEM prep package. So I think it's really cool that not only Ford, but some of the other manufacturers of these late mile trucks are starting to put the prep package in right from the factory. And so if you have that, it's gonna make setting up a fifth wheel, or even a gooseneck hitch for that matter, extremely easy since essentially, these just drop right into place. So right off the bat, this is gonna be a fixed-style hitch, meaning you're not able to slide it back. And so ideally, you're gonna want to use this style in a truck that has a long bed, and that's because with that longer box, you're gonna have more clearance referring to the cab. more

Today we're gonna be taking a look at the current line of Q Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches with slider for the Ford Towing Prep Package. More and more nowadays, we're seeing trucks that have shorter than eight foot beds on them, which comes in a problem when we go to tow in the fifth wheel, 'cause we want our hitch to be on the forward side of our rear axle. But that ends up putting our trailer extremely close to our cab. That's where our slider's gonna help out. When it comes time to make those tight turns, we can come to this vertical handle here on the side. We'll pull it out, rotate it back, and that'll allow the hitch to slide back a full 12", giving us a clearance to go around the turn and we'll lock into position so we can make that turn without fear of hitting our truck. more

How's it going, Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today on our 2019 Ford F350 Super Duty, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with slider assembly, and this is gonna work with that Ford factory prep package. A lot of newer trucks nowadays are coming with shorter and shorter bed lengths and that can cause some issues with your stationary style 5th wheels and that's due to clearance. So with that shorter bed, the front of your 5th wheel trailer is gonna be closer to the cab of the truck. So in particular, for example, whenever you go to turn, since we're a little bit closer, you can have some issues with your trailer actually contacting the bed of your truck or the cab and damage it. So to alleviate that problem, we're actually going to be able to slide the 5th wheel closer to the back of the truck and provide us with that clearance we need. more

The quality's fantastic, but this one in particular, if your weight capacity is right at 18,000 or less, is gonna be a great option because, when you need to maneuver, you need a little bit more clearance so you don't hit your cab corners, you can just simply pull the latch, slide this back, it'll lock into place and now you can maneuver without having to worry about damaging your cab.

Hello, neighbors. It's Brad here at etrailer, and today, we're taking a look at the Curt A25 fifth wheel hitch on an S25 slider with the OEM prep package. So, we have a standard rail system that works with that on a 2020 Ram 2500. Now, this system is gonna be a great configuration for those of you with a six foot bed and the OEM puck package on your Ram, and reason being is that's gonna allow you to slide as you need to make sharper turns and it's gonna just to head back, and that way you can avoid hitting your cab corners when you have to make those sharp turns. Now, this system, having the OEM puck systems, means that the rail, means that it's gonna bolt up to it and you're gonna get everything be able to drop in an ISR standard configuration, meaning that you can really drop pretty much any fifth wheel in and they do have ones that are already set up for the OEM prep package that drop in. The downside with that is unless you're planning on keeping your truck forever, that fifth wheel is gonna have to stay with that whereas with this system, you can swap out to a different fifth wheel or if you get a different truck, you can take this, get different rails, if it's a Ford or a Chevy, and be able to adapt it and still be able to use your fifth wheel. more

And when getting a 5th wheel hitch on a truck, you do wanna take into account the bed length. And this one being a relatively short bed at 5-1/2' means that you're gonna need something that's going to be able to slide back to make those turns. That way you're not making damage on your cab corners. And this one's a little bit different than some of the others on the market and probably the best fit for this because this auto slides.

Review of Demco Fifth Wheel Hitch - Autoslide Chevrolet/GMC 18K Sliding Fifth Wheel - DM79GV

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with slider. This 5th wheel hitch is going to mount in the bed of your 2020 and newer Chevrolet or GMC shortbed truck with the factory installed towing prep package. This is going to give you 14 inches of additional clearance, so you have a little bit more breathing room when you're making those tight turns while towing your 5th wheel trailer, so you can worry less about your trailer making contact with your cab and causing damage. The head will slide towards the tailgate when you turn at a slow speed and then it will slide back forward, towards your cab when you straighten out, so that it's in the proper position in front of your rear axle for normal towing. This does have a rack in pinion gears, gear set that's going to create a nice smooth, controlled automatic motion, so you're not gonna have to worry about getting out of your truck to operate it, like you would with a manual slider. more
