PullRite 2600 SuperLite

Is anyone using the PullRite 2600 SuperLite in a Ford (6.75') or GM (6.5') shortbed. I would love to hear your comments about this combo.

Note: our 5th has the rounded Turn Tec nose

Hopefully someone will respond. I'm concerned about the pin box hitting the side rails of the bed which is an issue with the Anderson. If I reverse the coupler then there is the issue with cab clearance.

I do. I like it a lot, but I canít compare it to anything else. I destroyed the hitch head this summer because I did not lubricate it. I found out it should be lubricated before each use. PullRite replaced it free, but I paid the freight. I felt very fortunate they did that for me. Great customer service.

I needed a new slider hitch for my 2016 Cedar Creek when we purchased this. I look at PullRite and Demco Hijacker auto slider hitch.

Both are good hitches but: I choose the Demco hitch since I did not need to buy a capture pate that the PullRite requires. This was extra $$ that I did not need to spend and worry about, with losing the capture plate when the trailer is at a dealer. Since they need to remove the plate to tow the 5er with a standard hitch and may lose this plate.

The OP question was for PullRites Superlite 2600 series hitch which works like the Andersen type hitch.....inverted GN ball type. https://www.pullrite.com/2600

I started with a Curt Q20 slider and then moved to a PullRite 2600. Here’s my comparison:

1. The Curt was good but very heavy.
2. It was not “puck ready” for my Ford CCSB, so I used a Reese puck to ISR adapter. Heavy but it worked.
3. There was a fair amount of clunking and chucking. Because of the height of the slider and the adapter, I couldn’t lower the head so I had to raise my pin box. Not much change.

I removed everything and bought the PR and a Reese goose ball.
1. Installation was pretty straightforward.
2. I installed it with the hitch as far back as possible and then the pin box adapter as far forward as possible.
3. This shifted the weight to far back and made the front a bit light. Rotating the adapter to the opposite side put it back to where it was much better.
4. The hitch is pretty near silent with very little movement if any.
5. There is still a little chucking, but I think that’s more the shorter wheelbase than the hitch. I may be using the word chucking wrong; more of a bounce.
6. Nevertheless, I’ve got a MoRyde rubber pin box waiting to be installed.

I dropped my Alliance off for some warranty work and had to remove the pin box adapter. All that requires is loosening four bolts, which have to be torqued when I reinstall it for pickup. I removed my PullRite so I could use my bed. It took a couple minutes but is not hard.

I can get enough radius when turning that I’m not too concerned. Not enough as my slider, but I can’t imagine going that far anyway.

Here’s my setup. You can see how much of a radius my 5th wheel has.

In looking at the coupler, it appears to have about the same offset as the Andersen so if the Andersen won't work for you, this might not either. I am using an Andersen, and the pin box clears the bed rails with the coupler in the forward position. It will not quite clear since I installed the folding bed cover because the lips on the cover are closer to the hitch.

I get at least 75% and have never needed more. This is what my Andersen looks like with about 2" left before contact with the lip on the folding cover. Don't know why this posts upside down, but you can get the idea.

I've been using the Pullrite 2600 in a 2020 F-250 SB for a year now. My experience is the same as Birchy Boy. I pull a Jayco Eagle HT equipped with 21" pin box. I have the hitch set as far from the cab as possible. The pin box has gotten into the tonneau cover rails but not the truck. I have had the fiver at some sharp angles but never completely jack knifed.

I have the Andersen Ultimate hitch, with the pin box adapter facing forward, I have all the clearance I need. No problems with tight turns, never have turned 90 degrees so don't know. Try not to get into those situations. I like the Andersen a lot, no lubrication needed and actually they say not to. I have only towed around 4000 miles with it, but so far like it a lot better than the old two ton slider hitch I had in 2006. Hated that thing, was a bear to get out of and into the truck, rails sticking up in the bed sucked when trying to hauld anything large..
