Difference Between Square and Round Tube Fifth Wheel Slider Bases


I have a Reese 16k several years old non slider. I pull a 36foot 11000# 5er. I just did some damage to my trailer and truck cab so I am considering a slider hitch for peace of mind. What are the differences I the square tube REESE 16k vs. round tube ? Also,would I just leave my existing rails to install one of these?


Expert Reply:

Round tube sliders are preferred as they operate smoother and easier. The square tube sliders will get the job done but the round ones will just work a bit easier.

The Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider # RP30075 will a great option that would work well to replace what you have. It will give you more turning clearance around corners to prevent cab interference.
