Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today, on our 2017 GMC Sierra 2500, we're going to be checking out the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel. So, right off the bat, you may be wondering what's different about this 5th wheel hitch than a lot of the other ones And what it does differently is right in the name: Autoslide.

And that happens more than you would think on these short bed trucks. more
