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?

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
