I have a long bed. But the ball that attaches to the kingpin can be placed ahead of, or behind, the pin. Placing it behind the pin reduces the torque on the kingpin by 1% but places the font of the RV closer to the truck. Placing the ball ahead of the pin gets you about 3 additional inches. If your RV has a beveled cowl, then you could be good. I would call PullRite directly. I had a 15 minute conversation with a rep who seemed very knowledgeable.

Thanks for this info, I had been thinking of adapting the Anderson Ultimate to fit my Pullrite clean bed rails, now I may look at this as I am 65 years old with a herniated disc in my back and just can't handle the SuperGlide 4400 so it stays in the truck. If this will work with my SB truck I will definitely get one. It is a "No Brainer" for me. My wife keeps asking me when I am going to get the Anderson hitch. Now I can get this and keep from having to modify anything.
Elmer, can you give me the info on the rep you spoke with. PM me if you need to.

Elk4me, I just called the main number from the website and asked for a customer rep. Don't remember his name. FYI, I was going to use the rails from my previous hitch (Superglide) but I sold it with the truck. I would not have been able to as the new hitch has tabs that sit in slots on the top of the rail. The pins then pass through the rail and the tab. I think you will need to buy new rails as well. Good luck.

Pullrite Superlite for short bed

I just called Pullrite and talked to a representative in sales. I was told that due to the 3 inch offset, they do not recommend them for short bed trucks because they can't be sure if the clearance needed can be met. Even with the radius corner front on most new fith wheels. Oh well, back to the drawing board unless I can get my dealer to order one and put it on my truck so I can check clearances.
I don't see why they can't make a hitch pin adapter that has the offset like the Anderson which is 9 inches. If the Anderson tabs are long enough I may be able to have them slot the crossbed rails for the Superglide and drill pin holes in the rails to match the tabs. It would then drop rite in. We have measured the distance between the crossrails and they match the Anderson hitch perfectly for front to back spacing.

I just picked up my RV out of storage with the new hitch. What an easy feat it is to hitch-up. I am so glad that I sprung for this hitch. I will comment in July when I take it to destination.

Is there a hole in the ball socket for water to drain out? It is basically a funnel and I'm wandering if it is going to fill up with water?

Thanks

Yes, There are two holes on the left/right of receiver cup.

I have the Andersen and with the ball in the mount, there is no drainage issue. I also have an F350 SB and no clearance issues with the ball offset toward the tailgate. Both these hitches are a great way to go.

Demco Highjacker autoslide 18k, made in the U.S.A, super easy to hook and unhook, plus the wrap around jaw pretty much eliminates chucking!

The Andersen has the ball facing up and the cup facing down. The Superlite is just the opposite. The cup faces up and could fill with water when raining with nothing in it.

Chucking is the fore and aft tugging between the RV and TV. You are talking about hitch SLOP.

The superglide does have some hitch slop inherent in flexing of the slider pads...

I have the Demco like the one in the picture...previously I had a Reese manual slider and the chucking was HORRIBLE...checked the hitch from stem to stern, no slop, no wear. Got the new Demco...no more chucking. I am sure the chucking depends on the set up and had I spent more time and energy I could have found the sweet spot (pin weight - different loading, etc.) but the new hitch resolved all that. I do like the Demco's wrap around jaw with the bar behind it...it's a great hitch.

Even more so, I like the fact I don't need a 'capture plate' to make the slider work...all I need to do is hitch up to any 5th wheel - maybe adjust the bars to fit - and I'm off.
