Shortbox/5th wheel questions --> Pullrite Superglide and Popup hitch extenders

I have a few questions about these two products.

<ul type="square">[*]Can the little piece that attaches to the trailer by the kingpin be easily removed if the trailer were to be pulled by another vehicle w/o the Pullrite?
[*]Can you pull any other trailer not equipped with the little mechanism with a Pullrite hitch?
[*]On the Pullrite website, it is stated that the big 24K hitch works when reversing. Is this not the case for the 16K?
[*]is there much maintenance or wear associated with the sliding mechanism?
[*]is the kingpin clamping system on this hitch a good design?
[*]any other pros/cons with this hitch?
[*]HITCH [/list]

<ul type="square">[*]has anyone used these things?
[*]do you think they will damage the trailer or pinbox because of the extra 'leverage' they place on the trailer?
[*]any other opinions?

the slider hitch is nice, as you can tow any trailer with it, but you need to remember to slide it before you make that sharp turn.

You're thinking about an ordinary slider hitch, such as a Reese or Drawtite.

Not applicable to a Pulliam PullRite SuperGlide 5er hitch. It's fully automatic. You turn the truck, and the hitch slides. Nothing for you to mash or twist or move or slide - it's fully automatic.

Not cheap. But if I had to have a shorty pickup to tow my 5er, I wouldn't hit the road until I could affort a SuperGlide hitch. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif

What do you feel about the strain on the trailer?

That would be a huge concern - especially if your trailer is still under warranty. Instant voided warranty.

Most 5ers already have an "extended pin box" similar to that one. Mine does. The ones that need it added are usually the very-heavy luxury 5ers. And I'll bet Travel Supreme and King of the Road will void your trailer warranty in a heartbeat if you extended the pinbox that way. Their answer? Buy the right tow vehicle to begin with. Or use a SuperGlide hitch. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif
