Bob,

Good choice!

We love ourReese slider.

The Sidewinder looks interesting.



Best of luck in your travels.

I have a Pullrite Superglide on the way. I think I'm gonna like it. I picked up my new pickup today and it seems to be a very nice truck also.

Got the new Pullrite Superglide installed today and pulled my fiver home with it. Seems to be a very nice, easy to use hitch.

I also have been camping for years and back in 2008 bought our first 5th wheel. I'm pulling with a F-250 short bed and where I bought the 5th wheel suggested a slider. I actually have never had to use it but it's there just in case. Too bad it's not automatic and I would not have those bents in the rear of my cab.

That last post should read DENTS in the rear of the cab.

I bought the automatic slider because I seem to have a bit of Old Timers Disease setting in and I would like the back corners of my cab to stay the way they are at this time. Edited by: DUNWRKN

I think they call that CRAFT disease. I'm pretty sure I have it most days.

I have the reese quick slide and really haven't had to use it with my Crossraods 5ver beacause of the extended pin box. My old Vanguard 5ver had a short pinpox and there were some close calls and I had to use it frequently. Before this hitch and truck I managed to dent the cab in my Chevy and broke the back window. Nothing worse than starting your vacation by looking for a glass shop on a saturday to replace your back window. Now with the extended pinbox I can almost turn 90 without activating the slide. I still do if I'm at the very least unsure. Edited by: ryeja

I may have been ok with my Companion hitch, but it would only take one time with a wrong angle to find out that I needed a slider. This way I can relax a bit instead of wondering if I might pull a boo boo while backing into a tight place. There are a few pads in a campground where I stay that are on a curve and you have to jack knife to get on them. I try to avoid them, but end up there at times. I don't worry about damage to my TV as much as the front of my fiver.
