Ah, but the pivot point is farther back so that does make a difference. Then you calculations only come into play when you go beyond 90 degrees. Isn't that right???

An extended pin box doesn't change the pivot point - that's fixed by the location of the 5th wheel hitch's kingpin axis in the bed of the truck. The RV will always pivot around the kingpin, and the kingpin will always be located by the 5th wheel hitch jaws. A sliding hitch, on the other hand, does move the pivot point back as the hitch slides back.

If the front corner protrudes beyond the 51" arc in my example, then it will contact the cab well before 90 degrees is reached. If the distance from the rear of the cab to the hitch centerline is less than 51", contact will be made before 90 degrees - the shorter the distance between the hitch and cab, the earlier the contact.

As far as the interference due to width is concerned, all the extended pin box does is move the point of contact outboard on the rear of the cab.

See HERE.

I cant see limiting myself to only being able to pull one trailer. for $1800 plus install kit and capture so over $2K i can only hook up to one trailer..............i dont think so. thus the auto slider is out.

im not thinkin a reg manual slider and a sidewinder which does move the pivot point back on the pin box.

I own the pullrite 16k slider. I love it. The plate that you have to use is held on by 4 set screws. Comes on and off in a matter of minutes. The rail system can be removed in a number of places. I hooked up a chain lift in my garage and I can have the slider out in 5 minutes. I have had to back into some pretty tight places and never had to get out of the truck or worry about the trailer hitting the truck.

well its going to cost me $375 for the dodge mounting kit..........so i was thinkin..........

yall tell me what you think about this.

I can sell the 16K super glide, the super rails, and chevy mounting kit and get the 18K Hijacker auto slider. reason being is that with the pull rite super glide your pretty much limited to your one 5er. unless you have a capture plate for every kind of pin box that is on any 5er you may have to pull.

with the hijacker the hitch adjust to fit different pin boxes unless you have a MorRide or 5th airborn then you buy an adapter. buy all in all you can tow just about any 5er and not be limited to one.

I was just thinkin that if a friends truck broke down or they were out of town and needed their trailer moved with the hijacker i could move it. with the pull rite i could not.

also the hijacker is a 18K and has dual pivot head

I can sell the pull rite for atleast 100% of the cost of the hijacker which is $1535 total

Heck it cost me all of 250 dollars parts and labor including the correct mounting brackets. Where are you getting them at that price? Sounds like a rip off to me. Brackets cant cost that much.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, the plate that you need for your hitch is a universal plate. It will fit almost all hitches so you can take it off in matter of minutes and install it on another box. I think if you shop around you can find the brackets for less and you will spend about 1/3 what a new hitch would cost you.

first let me say that im just posting what i have learned so far. if there is a capture plate that i can take off and put of other pin boxes please let me know where i can get one............

the only universal capture plate that i saw/have is the one with many holes in it and you have to drill a minium of 10 holes into you pinbox then bolt it on.

the new quick capture plate has 4 bolts and comes off but is still pin box specific. i called them and thats what they told me about the new quick

I got this reply from PullRite:

John,

We have a Capture Plate designed for PullRite dealers that have their
shop truck equipped with a SuperGlide. There are a row of set screws on
each side of the CP that fasten the plate to the pin box. If you plan
to use the plate exclusively you may have to purchase metal shim strips
that would shim the pin box out so the set screws have a resting place
other than the actual pin box. The shim would assure that the set screw
would not have more than 1/2" showing between the shim and the CP edge,
giving you a more secure fit.

We have two widths 13.5" p/n 3330 and 14.5" p/n 3331. Retail cost
$182.00.

Lynda

maybe that is what you were talkin aobut and that would work fine for me. i wonder why they dont advertise that?
