Hijacker ultra slide 16K. I just changed to their new style wrap around head. Hope to try it out latter this week. (If I can get out of my iced over driveway )

I have been using the Reese 16K manual slider for 8 years and only used twice. Of course the first 6 years were with a long bed Chevy.

Husky 16k Manual Slider.

Used to move the trailer back when I use the generator. Generator travels crossways behind the cab but needs to be lengthwise to run the exhaust out the side and there isn't room without the hitch moved.

Valley 16k manual. Not fancy, but the dealer threw it in. It's functional.

Trailer saver air hitch ts3 with a heavy duty Holland/binkley head.
Low effort to connect / disconnect.
Such a nice ride that it's easy to forget that I've got 15k back there.
I do pay attention to clearance when I'm making a u turn, since it doesn't slide.

Reese SELECT SERIES 20K FIFTH WHEEL w/ round tube manual slider. Have yet to use the slide other than trying it out to make sure it worked as it should. I do like the HUGE head it has as I have enjoyed this with the number of different trailers I have pulled.

Reese Elite 18K Slider. Very happy with it. Only needed to use it backing into my shop because I wanted to lower the butt end of my truck for clearance. Never needed it for turning yet but it helps that I have a 6'9" box and the design of the front cap of the cruisers help with clearance.
