I have a pullrite super lite and love the way it works i had a super glide then traded trucks went to a 8ft bed. so i went with the super lite, its light enough i can take it out of the truck when not needed. The 5ver is easy to hook and unhook pulls great. Shopped around ended up buying from tweetys rv. so far i,m very happy with it , i have it set up so the ball is behind the king pin this moves the weight a forward another 3 inches

Hello Fellow 5th Wheelers,
Both the Anderson Ultimate and the Pullrite Super Lite are great products, with very little weight - around 50 pounds, But these are designed for a least a regular or long bed truck. Those with a short bed "could be" outta luck. However, if you change the kingpin setup to a Reese Sidewinder, it move the trailer back 22 inches. This is the solution for short bed trucks.

As someone who has used both, I will say that the Sidewinder was definitely the best solution for my F150 short bed (5' 7"). And to correct the above statement, it moves the turning point back 22", not the fiver.
However, the limitations showed up when I got the higher F350. The fiver was very nose high and the Sidewinder, bolted to the middle of the pin box braces, could not be moved up without hitting the brace wings. I finally put locking bolts in the Sidewinder and moved to the top which helped, but now had clearance problems in turns and the ride was rough. I replaced it with a MorRyde pin box which lowered the nose another inch and smoothed the ride, but still hated wrestling 100 lbs of Reese 16K when I needed the bed. I still had clearance problems with both the cab and bed and could only turn about 75 degrees.
I got the rail mount Andersen at the beginning of this season and am delighted. Smooth ride, no clearance issues to 90 degrees, easy to install and remove at 42 lbs. The only issue is that it doesn't adjust as low as the 13.75" of the Reese, so I went from slightly nose low to a little nose high, but not enough to cause concern.
One note on the Sidewinder is that the 4 turret bolts need to be re-torqued to 45 lbs every couple thousand miles. The Revolution is very different so I can't comment on that.

I probably missed something in this thread but the OP has a short bed and wants a superlight hitch which is not a slider.

If he means a pullright superslide I can say I have an 18K unit and have had no issues at all. Bought it used with only two previous trips on it. JMO

Superlite happiness

I have one of the pullrite superlite hitches , and they are that. At just about 50 lbs they are super easy to install and remove, they are also super easy when hooking up get the ball with in the 6 inch cup and it drops right in. No clunking or shifting rated for 20k. And hears a kicker it's made in the good old USA.
It took less than an hour for the initial set up. I would highly recommended it.
