Fifth Wheel Hitch ???

I have a 08 chevy 2500HD short box (6'5") crew cab Duramax, with a B&W gooseneck installed, I am wondering if anyone could tell me if the pullrite slider would be able to be installed and not interfere with the B&W mounting bracket or what other good slider brands would work for me. I know there is a slider (colibert) that is compatable but not sure i feel comfortable with that setup. We are looking at either a 2012 jayco lite 27.5 BHS or wildcat 312BHX and i want to be on the safe side for manuevering. any suggestions or input please.

There are no other brands comparable to the Pullrite SuperGlide. It's in a class by itself. If I had to tow a 5er with a shorty pickup, I'd insist on a SuperGlide hitch.

Pullrite sells a "B&W adaptor for SuperGlide". Instead of the standard "SuperRail" mounting kit for the SuperGlide hitch, you would install the B&W adaptor for SuperGlide mounting kit. The B&W adaptor costs about $150 more than the SuperRail mounting kit.

Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.
