5th wheel / shorter bed

6 posts in this topic

On the 1/2 crews with the 5'8" box's, do they make a hitch so you can pull a 5th wheel camper? I have an '04 chevy 1500 crew.

I know this should probably be in the camper section, but figure nobody is looking in that this time of year.

Do a google search for superGlide hitch. It has a cam in it and when you turn the hitch moves back about 14" so you don't have to worry about wiping out a corner of the pickup cab when backing up. There are cheaper models that you have to get out and pull pins and then pull ahead to move the hitch back.

I have one of the cheaper models, its a pain in the butt, spend the money for the super glide model. Just my opinion.

I have a Reese 16k sliding 5th wheel hitch. It works good. You just need to get out and pull the lever to slide it when you're in tight turning situations.

I found one on the net that slides 22 3/4". That is the only one I found anywhere. I am going to ask the local RV dealer what he recommends.

You guys are using these on the real short crew cab box beds?

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
