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?

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
