I looked at that when I bought my rig. It was very new then and had no track record. Didn't know they were still making them. The thing that I didn't like was its lack of side to side pivoting. It is obviously not designed for offroad use:coffee:

I forget, how many here have shortbed trucks and tow a 5vr?

I've towed our hauler with both a static hitch and a slider on 2 different trucks, the F250 shortbed that is Diana's Dad's towed the hauler in a way the longbed F350 did not, the slider on a shortbed F250 felt squirrely and that truck squatted like a dog, i think it threw the center of gravity off alot.....

Either way towing a fifthwheel hauler is so much nicer than a bumper pull...

Me likes it.....:buford:

I have a shortbed, with the Husky 16K slider. I've slid the hitch 2 or 3 times in 5 years. I find that if I tow with the water tanks empty, it tends to porpose on some roads. Filling the water tanks smooths it out, but probably makes my poor little 6.0 litre gas motor want to jump out and run away.

When I got the Fiver the Dealer installed the 16 K slider Non motorized, and I made them Take it out after a couple of trips for the Exact reason above even though it had a Pivot Pin it did not move very much from side to side
