Video Transcript for Review of Demco Fifth Wheel Hitch - Vinyl Cover - DM14844

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this vinyl cover for your Demco Hijacker 5th wheel trailer hitch. Now, this cover will protect the head of the Demco Hijacker 5th wheel trailer hitch from the elements when you're not towing. It is designed to work on the Demco Hijacker Autoslide, the Premier, the SL, or the UMS series 5th wheels. It is a nice waterproof vinyl construction.

It easily wipes clean, and it'll help resist any harsh UV rays. On the underside, you notice it has two adjustable straps. Let me just zoom in here. And you can see these two adjustable straps will let you secure the cover on your hitch head. And also, if you notice, when this goes around your hitch head, right over here, there is an opening on this side that'll allow the handle to fit through.

It is a nice sleek black color. Has the Demco logo right here on the top that matches your hitch. And this part is made in the USA. But again, you'll just take your adjustable straps right here. And you can see they just have buckles on them that you can detach them, put it around there.

And then put your strap around there, snap it into place, and then you can pull your strap to adjust it or to loosen it. Whatever position you needed it. Same on this side. But that should do it for the review on this vinyl cover for the Demco Hijacker 5th wheel trailer hitch..

Protect your Demco fifth-wheel trailer hitch from the elements with this waterproof vinyl cover. This sleek black cover is specially designed to fit over the hitch head and it secures in place with 2 adjustable straps.


Perfect fit, looks great keeps hitch head free from exposure to the elements when not in use. Would be nice if they made one to cover the whole hitch body including the gears.

I checked and currently Demco only offers this cover for their 5th wheel hitches.


The hitch was exactly what I needed for short box Ram 2500 Longhorn. I have had no issues with it and it operates as advertised.


High quality cover!



Absolutely a quality product showing no signs of wear after one year.


I love this cover, must hope the defect on my first one was a fluke. Thank you eTrailer for the quick exchange.

I love my Demco auto slide hitch

Gary B.


The replacement is holding up fine


Fits and works as designed.


i not only ordered the cover but also a demco 16 k auto slide hitch kit.started by asking for suggestions for a hitch.was answered very professionally by Jeffery L.placed the order with Jordan F. also Susan H. Sarah H were of the utmost help with questions / and fast solutions ! thank you all.would not think twice about recommending e trailer to any one. i will be back when the need arises for sure!

Buddy R.


great! at a campground yesterday recommended etrailer to a person asking about the demco hitch.


The logo printed on the top is not required. It makes the hitch to noticable and should be plain black


Hitch works as described. Only stumble was in hooking up. Instructions=vague.
Had to rely on a video to find out it's best to loosen bolts on sides of pin to hook up, then tighten them back. Otherwise, it's nearly impossible to hit the hitch perfectly.

Delivery was good, all parts were there. Could have used more detailed instructions for initial install. Thanks to my neighbor & son, we figured it out.


I have ordered several items from E Trailer from my truck fifth wheel hitch to air ride pin box and more. Great company to deal with and very helpful on what I needed. Great staff keeping you up on orders and making sure you are fully satisfied. This product is another one I purchased to cover my hitch. Protects it from weather so no problems occur later. Fits great with no worries.


I had one issue with one of the guides breaking loose at the weld. I purchased another set and they are better made and so far no problems. Also, I wish the cover was larger and covered more of the hitch. Overall I would recommend etrailer to anyone looking for a hitch or some other product for their truck/camper.


The Demco lifting bracket - DM6100 is a very simple effective tool for removing a Demco 5th wheel automatic slider out of my truck. The slider hitch is very heavy but with this tool and a receiver hitch mounted hand crane equipment removal can be accomplished by one person. I have bought several products from and have be extremely satisfied with their service, price and quick delivery. I will continue to use them as my primary RV supplier.


I wanted to order a cover for my fifth wheel hitch and wasn't sure which one would fit properly. This prompted me to email etrailer and they steered me to the correct cover which was delivered in a timely matter, fit perfectly and looks great. Furthermore, it will protect my hitch from weather and therefore make it last longer. Needless to say, I am delighted with the product.


The demco autoslide hitch exceeded my expectations. After having shoulder surgery, not having to use a manual slide anymore makes hitching up our fifth wheel easier.


Demco Hijacker 5th wheel hitch cover and Demco hitch lifting tool arrived as timed in excellent condition. Now waiting for Ford to complete build of Super Duty 250 Diesel Crew cab with 6 3/4 ft bed est. build 8/19. Will be using 2 ton hydraulic engine lift with a modified boom for 5th wheel placement and extraction.


Just picked up our Demco 5th wheel cover....fits great and looks good.....I'm satisfied with this product....Have dealt with etrailer a few times and have always had good results and the customer service is excellent....thanks Nicole....


Custom fit. Great looking cover with durable buckles.


This cover is still holding strong after a year! There is a slight bit of fading but that is expected giving the fact I have this cover on all the time and anything fades in the hot Texas sun. This cover is definitely worth the purchase to protect your hitch from dirt, grime and rain


I ordered my DEMCO fifth wheel cover a couple of days ago. The order was seamless, quick and easy. I received the cover today. I installed it in a couple of minutes. If fit perfectly and looks good. Thanks etrailer!


Fits our demo autoslide fifth wheel hitch great. Easy to get on and off. Nice protection from the elements.


Keeps the 5th wheel hitch clean.


Wish it covered the hole unit


I have 38 ft 5 wheel the hitch line up nice and lock in great . Turn and back up very smooth.


I love it. It fits great and protects my hitch from the elements id certainly recommend one to protect a great Demco hitch.


Fits my fifth wheel perfectly. It’s been on about a year now and still looks great. It does a great job protecting it from the rain. Great product


I like the heavy duty cover but it does not used as much as I thought since the truck has a folding cover now.

  • Would Demco Hitch Head Cover DM14844 Fit Valley Head that Measures 21 by 13 inches
    The hitch head size that the part # DM14844 is designed to fit is much bigger than the head of your Valley fifth wheel hitch so it would fit easily.

    The dimensions of the base of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550034 are approximately 35 inches long x 31 inches wide. It has a height that can be set at 15-1/4 inches, 16-1/2 inches or 18 inches. The recommended cover for the head of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550034 is the aptly named Cover for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM14844; we do not currently carry a cover that fits over the entire hitch, including the base....

  • How Heavy Is The Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM79GV
    The Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider # DM79GV weighs approximately 300lbs. The hitch head (60lbs) does come apart though to make removing/installing your hitch a bit easier. If that's not a weight you'd like to move around a lot and you don't have a tonneau cover then I recommend using a hitch head cover # DM14844 to protect your hitch and keep it in great condition.

  • How Much Does the Demco 18K Hijacker Autoslide Hitch for a Ford Super Duty Weigh
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch part # DM8550024 is heavy, there is no denying that but it can be broken down into three separate pieces which will make removal much more manageable. The three separate pieces are the head which weighs around 60 lbs, the base which weighs around 180 lbs, and the side brackets which are around 60 lbs as well for a total of 300 lbs. I will say that the majority of customers who frequently install and remove this hitch use the Demco 5th Wheel...

  • How to Lock a Demco Hijacker to Factory Puck System
    I see what you are talking about, without the above bed rails you wouldn't have a point to attach the lock. Looking at the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550024, I think the best way to lock the hitch would be to replace the clevis pin that secures the handle locking the puck in place with a lock. This would prevent the handle from being turned which would keep the pucks locked in place. A lock like the etrailer Trailer Coupler Latch Lock # e98884 could pass through the...

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    You are correct, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch part # DM8550022 (18K) will not provide enough turning clearance for the 5-1/2' bed on your 2017 Ram 1500. Your best option to obtain the needed turning clearance would be to use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550040 (13K) which provides up to 22-1/2" of front to back travel compared to the 14" of the 13K. You will also need the install kit part # DM8552030-71 to install the Hijacker in your Ram. In...

  • Availability of Cover for 5th Wheel Hitch
    The best cover for you will really depend on the size of the footprint your hitch takes up. We offer two fifth wheel hitch covers that could work for you. The Reese # RP30055 you referred to fits hitches with a footprint up to 18 x 28 inches. The Classic Accessories 5th wheel hitch cover, part # CA80116 covers hitches up to 18 inches tall and a footprint up to 24 x 24 inches.

  • Is there a Cover that Will Fit a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    There isn't a cover specifically for the B&W Companion 5th wheel trailer hitches. You would have to go by the measurements of the covers we have to determine fit. Cover # RP30055 measures 18 inches by 38 inches. Cover # CA80116 measures 24 x 24 x 18 inches. Cover # DM14844 is designed specifically for Demco hitches and would not be a good match. One of the other 2 covers could work but may not provide the best fit and would not cover the entire hitch.

  • Available 5th Wheel Hitch Covers
    We offer two general-purpose 5th wheel hitch covers, parts # CA80116 and # RP30055, which are not hitch-specific, as well as one Demco cover that is, part # DM14844 which fits their Hijacker autoslide hitches like # DM8550038. Any universal-fit cover will probably mean a slight compromise in one aspect of its fit. Between the available options I suggest the Reese cover # RP30055.

  • Cover Availability for Demco Hijacker Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Demco offers the head cover part # DM14844 which would fit the Demco Hitch part # DM6076P-UL-16K that you referenced. Demco doesn't have a diagram or grease schedule but in the manual of the Hijacker it says to keep all moving parts greased and be sure to torque the bolts every 2,000 miles. I attached a picture that I took from the instructions that may be helpful.

  • Availability of a Cover for the 18K Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
    I do have a solution for you to protect the 18K Autosliding Hitch like part # DM8550034 from Demco but unfortunately there are no covers that will fit over the entire hitch, just the part # DM14844 that fits over the head unit. We have a wide variety of tonneau covers that you can install on your pickup to help protect your Hijacker from the elements. If your pickup is the 2018 Ford F-250 then I recommend going with the BAK Revolver X2 # BAK39330 or the RetraxONE MX # RT60383. Both are...

  • Best Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Options for 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 With Factory 5th Wheel Puck System
    Happy to help and let's start with the hitch; since you have a standard bed (also called short bed) on your 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 you will need a sliding 5th wheel hitch. The reason for that is simply turning radius - there is less room on short beds for the trailer to maneuver when you are making sharp turns, and what winds up happening is the trailer will crash into the cab of truck. A sliding hitch essentially moves the trailer further away from the cab, so you can make tighter turns...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2018 Ram 3500 with Short Bed and OEM Pucks
    The best 5th wheel hitch for a pickup with a short bed, like what is on your 2018 Ram 3500 is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th wheel hitch. Since this 5th wheel hitch has an autoslide feature you don't have to get out of your truck cab and unlock/lock your 5th wheel hitch for tight turning situations. It has 14" of front to back travel which is enough to allow you to make 90 degree turns! The Hijacker comes in an 18K version # DM8550034 as well as a 21K version # DM8550035 and either one...

The first thing you need is a base rail kit and for that I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit # RP50084-58 because it is the only true custom installation kit available. What this means is that you won't have to drill into your vehicle frame for the installation. With the base rails...
