What Is Angle To Hook Up Trailer With The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch


Hello, I am interested in your Demco auto-slide 5th Wheel hitch DM8550035 and rail kit. Would you know at what angle from straight back that I can hook up my trailer? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

I reviewed the instructions for the Demco Auto-Slide 5th Wheel Hitch, Item # DM8550035, and the coupling and uncoupling needs to be straight or slightly angled with alignment. It works pretty easily with 10-15 degree angle but anything larger will not allow proper coupling.

If you have a factory rail kit, you will need installation rails Item # DM6099. If you do not have the factory rail kit, you will need Item # DM8552026-71.

I have attached the installation instructions, an article, and some videos for you to check out.
