Pullrite hitch plate with regular hitch??

We have a pullrite hitch and hitch plate on our Hitchhiker 5th wheel which we pulled with our short bed truck. We no longer have this truck but have access to a regular long bed truck with a standard 5th wheel hitch.

Here is the question. Can I pull my 5th wheel as is, or will I have to remove the pullright hitch plate off the 5th wheel before connecting my rig to a standard hitch? It may be a real problem to remove this hitch plate.

Thanks for any input you may have on this question. KitKat

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you cannot hitch your Superglide-equipped 5th wheel to a conventional 5th wheel hitch without:

1. Removing the Superglide plate from your pin box, or

2. Using THIS adapter

That's one of the shortcomings of the Pullrite Superglide hitch system.

Thanks so much for information. We will be selling the rv soon so will probably just take the plate off. Thanks again. KK
