Best Fifth wheel hitch

I am going to purchase a fifth wheel auto slide hitch for my 2019 f350 short box. Any suggestions on what would be the best bang for my money?

The PullRite SuperGlide. You will not be disappointed.

I have a Demco Auto Glide hitch. What is nice about this hitch set-up is with certain pin boxes styles you do not need a capture plate. My Trail Air pin box is one style that does not require a capture plate which is an additional cost for the PullRite hitch.

I have attached a link for you to review.

I had a Pull Rite Super Glide prior to getting a long bed truck. Great hitch. Has some drawbacks but never an issue in my 3 years of use. Its also is heavy reducing your payload a bit more than others and it must be kept lubricated.
If its turning capability you need you could also consider a Reese Sidewinder/Revolution pin box. They offer you tight turning with short bed trucks.
When it comes to fifth wheel hitches, I'm totally sold on an air hitch of some type to help cushion the impact between the truck and trailer pin box. I have a Trailer Saver.

If your trailer has the rounded/notched corners made for short bed trucks you won't need a slider.
Also check out the Andersen or PullRite Super lite series hitch systems.

A Ford/GM/Ram type question. Different people like different hitches and defend their purchase. I have B&W and like it. Puck mount in the Ram.

My 16K Superglide hasn't let me down in 15 years.

Is B&W making an auto slider?

Yes and you can't go wrong with a B&W. I have a B&W non slide in a LB F350 and it is by far the quietest, smoothest, easiest I have used. I have had Reese & Husky and wish I had gone B&W years ago.

Whether this is the "best" hitch or not is probably debatable but it is one of the best.

My Super Glide only weighs 200....and as far as lube goes, WD-40 is what's recommended

Have had a superglide, B&W, and a Curt. The super glide is the one I liked the least. The Curt was good, but I liked the B&W best of all.
