Demco auto slide hitch works very well with my crew cab short bed Ram. Fits under my tonneau cover nicely. Trouble free thus far. Had to purchase a Demco plate for the camper to make the Rhino box hitch work. etrailer personnel were great in helping ensure I had the right products and kept me well informed of shipping dates.

Works Excellent for Ram Trucks with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package!




by:

The truck bed rail adapter required moving two of the shims for a proper fit, but this was done fairly quickly. Once the shims were moved, the part fit properly into my truck bed. The next step (adding the Auto Slide 5th Wheel Hitch) into the rail adapter went off without any problems. I would definitely recommend having two people to move the hitch into place, or have an overhead hoist to help to install the hitch. It is heavier than I expected but it fit perfectly into the bed rail adapter.

This is an excellent product. It arrived 1 day after ordering it. It had very good instructions that were easy to follow. It only took me 20 minutes to install. It fit tight, but perfectly. It will be the perfect base for the Demco autoslider that I'm going to put on it. I'm using it in my 2018 Ram 2500 Crew cab to pull a Keystone Cougar Half ton fifth wheel.


Comments
It works fantastic! Easy to install for towing 5th wheel and then easy to remove to have complete, open bed for hauling.

The base needed slight adjustments in order for the lever to properly turn and the clips to set properly in the puck system. However, with the slight adjustments, the install was easy and I was able to do it with the help of my father. Just remember to lubricate the puck system so that you can remove the hitch without issues when it’s time to take it out.




by:

It works as advertised. However, it adds bulk / weight but unfortunately it is required because the autoslider hitch I purchased does not come custom all-in-one for my 2020 Ram 3500 OEM puck system.

fast shipping. item got here a day early.
i
was lucky. everything fit in place. installation was very easy.
its mated to a Super Glide 2900 slider hitch sitting in a 2016 Ram 3500 Mega Cab dually.

The rail adapter arrived at my home in excellent shape although the cardboard box it came in was coming apart. All the parts and instructions were there. Mounted the rail in Ram Truck in about five minutes. Fit perfectly and solid. My draw Tite 5th wheel hitch also fit the plate perfectly. I have pulled my camper with this setup and everything seems to be as it should. The plate is robust and we'll manufactured. Very happy with the product and etrailer!

A BIG THANK YOU to Jenny and her crew at etrailer.com. I had originally bought this puck rail adapter from Amazon and I did not take the poor reviews to heart. My mistake. On a time crunch and missing parts later, I realized I should have gone with etrailer earlier. They are a reputable business and they had AWESOME customer service and fast delivery. Jenny kept me updated on the shipment and even sent a follow email once the adapter showed delivered in their system!!!! I learned my lesson and should have done it right the first time and gone with etrailer (and they had it for the same great price). The adapter was super easy to install. Thanks again, Corey (life long customer from now on).




by:

After minor adjustments installation was ok. Instruction were clear. My pullrite superglide fit perfectly. Thanks for this great product and etrailer I am going to have a great camping season.




by:

This was the greatest thing to have. I upgraded trucks and my hitch would not fit without this plate. Called and spoke to a rep and they hooked me up with this adapter. Didn’t have to spent a fortune on a new hitch.

The hitch and adaptor arrived in three days. Everything went together fairly easy considering I had just torn my rotator cuff a week earlier and my helper never showed up. Definitely would have been easier with two people. Had planned a trip next week to Yellowstone National Park but will have to wait until after surgery. Will do a follow up review after I am able to see how well auto slide works. Great customer service!

Worked as designed. No issues, worked perfectly to my 2021 Ram 3500 with factory pucks.

Item was a perfect fit and allowed me to reuse an existing 5th wheel hitch.

etrailer was great! Although this 5th wheel rail adapter weighs about 90 pounds, it was delivered in just a few days and two days sooner than originally estimated. etrailer support was also good and it’s very nice to see the estimated wait time posted in real time on their website. The Demco product is very heavy duty and well made, however I had two pretty big issues to work around. The first is that only with great luck will this 90lb adapter simply drop into the four puck mounts. After much time spent trying to do so, I loosened the four socket/post assemblies and with the extra play it became easy to get the adapter seated. It would have been perfectly normal to do this earlier, but there is no mention in the instructions that this may be necessary. It would also have been helpful if the instructions stated the when the adapter is fully seated, it should sit slightly above the bed floor. (I called Demco to verify this.). The second significant issue I had was that for my truck, a RAM 2500, three of the four levers on the sockets were too tight to turn without tapping a LOT with a hammer. The instructions do say that one or two shims can be removed to loosen the fit, however the (unspecified) locknut is 1-?”, torqued high and I didn’t have tools for that job. I suppose that a hitch/trailer service garage would know about these issues and have the tools at the ready, but for a one-off DIY job it could have been much faster and easier with better/more complete installation instructions.

Excellent 5th wheel hitch. Heavy duty. Works as it should.

I have researched purchasing a "Sliding Fifth Wheel" extensively. Researched the few that are on the market. Without a doubt hands down the very best designed & fabricated unit for the job is the "Demco Model #6107 21K Autoslide. The workmanship on design & build is "Impeccable" second to none! Secondly when I decided to purchase this unit I went with "etrailer". Paula at etrailer knew this product "Inside & Out". She answered all my questions and gave additional info on this 5th. wheel. It was delivered exactly when she said it would and it was secured to a wooden pallet and every piece was packed the tightly and shipping foam to protect it. Upon opening all the exterior shipping protection material it looked even better then on the computer screen. I am more then happy with this slider and the personable service Paula and etrailer provided. Thanks Again Paula.

Bought this adapter for a new Ram 3500 to use with my DEMCO Autoslde 5th wheel hitch. That hitch was used in an older Ram with above bed standard rails installed. I installed the rail adapter in the puc system with only minor adjustment issues. So far so good. Lifted my DEMCO hitch into my truck and tried to fit in the “standard” rail slots only to find out it didn’t fit. Turns out my DEMCO autoslide is an older model that was built in Canada and the platform is wider than newer DEMCO and other brand hitches. Lesson learned, standard doesn’t always mean standard. Talked to DEMCO rep and was told this adapter was made with only 4 holes on each rail for appearance unlike other above rail systems that have multiple holes to accommodate hitches like my model. Nowhere on this site or the DEMCO site do they state this adapter WILL NOT accept older DEMCO hitches nor do they provide width dimensions for the limited holes in the adapter. Now I’m waiting for my new 5th wheel hitch that will fit this adapter. As you might expect, I’m not a happy camper!

Great product and I'd buy it again. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is due to powder coating inside two of the holes. One I was able to scratch away at with a pick and get the bolt to thread, the other I ended up getting by undoing what I had installed, lifted the thing up, and threaded it in from underneath all the way through to clear it out. I do not have a tap and die set. If you buy this, I'd recommend checking to make sure the bolts go in every hole prior to installing it, to save on time.
