Is a Locking Plate Needed To Use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide with Lippert Trailair Rota-Flex


Im trying to determine whether the additional side locking plate is required to use this hitch with my Lippert Rotoflex model 1621 pin box.


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Capture Plates for Trailair Rota-Flex Pin Boxes part # DM6171 will be needed when using the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550035 with a Lippert Trailair Rota-Flex Pin Box (All Models). The capture plates that come with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide will not be able to stop the Lippert Trailair Rota-Flex from pivoting which is why a custom set of plates for this exact pin box are needed.

In order to mount the Demco Hijacker Autoslide on a 2018 Ram 2500 you can use the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit part # DM8552025-71 which doesn't require any drilling into the frame.
