Here at RV Supply Center, Inc we sell and install fifth wheel hitches. Some companies
install 5th wheel hitches by welding brackets onto your frame. While this is faster for
the company doing the installation and it saves them time and money.
It comes with some dangers.
First, if the frame is over heated it may crack. Second, some vehicle manufacturers will void the warranty, if the frame has bend welded on. And finally, if the electronics of the vehicle have not been properly protected they can be damaged by the welding process.
We install hitches by bolting them to the frame as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer and the hitch manufacturer. The hitches we recommend are rich in features and quality. Here are a few we recommendfrom top of the line to entry level.
SuperGlide - Short Box 5th Wheel Towing. Item# 5871
SuperGlide is the only true solution for safe 5th wheel towing with short bed trucks. SuperGlide automatically moves the trailer away from the cab while making turns - allowing up to 90° turning without stopping, slowing down or even thinking about the space between the truck & trailer - and then automatically returns the hitch and trailer to the safe towing position over the truck axle when the turn is completed.
Until the introduction of the SuperGlide with the patented CamGlide feature, what options were there for people with short bed trucks? Not turn tight corners while towing your trailer? Install the hitch improperly... too far back in the truck bed to distribute the load correctly?
Buy a hitch that can be repositioned but forces you to throw levers. Set the trailer brakes, pull pins, move forward, insert pins, and then turn - and the probability that sometime, somehow either a turn will be made without remembering to go through that process - or an unintentional turn will be made during an emergency or a jack knife situation, and damage to the vehicles or worse will result?
These aren’t really answers and they don’t address your needs. The SuperGlide isn’t for everyone, but if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a short bed pickup, the SuperGlide is the answer!
The PullRite SuperGlide is the solution! It allows a 5th wheel hitch to be installed properly and automatically adjusts the spacing between the trailer and the pickup cab during turns, without requiring the driver to do anything other than drive.
All SuperGlide models are available with the removable base rail type installation pioneered by PullRite. Unique SuperGlide mounting system allows hitch and mounting posts to be easily removed with no tools - when done towing, simply remove the hitch and rails, twist the heavy duty mounting posts ¼ turn and lift them out. A smooth, clean truck bed - with no need to carve chunks out of bed mats & liners.
Super 5th - Extraordinary 5th Wheel Hitches. Item# 5867
Super 5th is the best solution for extraordinarily safe & comfortable 5th wheel towing.
Automatically locking, gear driven latch keeps the trailer securely connected even if you forget the
safety pin... eliminating the risk of dropping your trailer.
Rotary latch design provides tighter connections between the truck and the trailer for more comfortable towing. Super 5th hitches are built with precision fit, laser cut parts. There is only .030" tolerance between the king pin and latch - minimizing the "bump" felt when towing. See video to right.
Extraordinary designs priced to provide great value for your money.
Latch design eliminates focused wear points providing years of trouble-free, outstanding performance.
The dual tilt articulating head pioneered by PullRite eliminates twist and stress on trucks and trailers and makes hitching and unhitching easier.
Laser cut parts, superior designs, and over 30 years hitch building experience support our commitment to customer satisfaction.
