Should I Get The Demco Hijacker Or PullRite SuperGlide Auto Slider 5TH Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ram 2500


I need a auto sliding 5th wheel hitch for my 2020 Ram 2500. I'm not sure if I should get the Demco or Superglide sliding hitch. Which one would work best for me?


Expert Reply:

I recommend the Demco Hijacker over the Pullrite Superglide for the simplicity and larger selection of 5th wheel campers that you can haul with it. The Demco does not require a capture plate for every 5th wheel pin box that you haul. It will fit standard pin boxes that are 12" to 14" wide and only requires a locking plate for specialty pin boxes like the Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, Trailair Flexair, Rota Flex, and 5th Airborne. The hitch height of the Demco is also adjustable to 15-1/4", 16-1/2", and 18" tall to help level your camper and ensure you have enough clearance with your bed rails. The Superglide has a fixed height of 17-1/2".

To determine the correct Demco Hijacker for your 2020 Ram 2500 this will depend if you have the factory in bed hitch prep/puck system from the factory. There is also a 18,000lb (4,500lbs max pin weight) hitch or 21,000lb (5,250lbs max pin weight) hitch depending on your trailer weight rating.

If you do have the In bed prep/puck system on your Ram you will need the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 to fit into your factory hitch and convert it to a set of industry standard rails. This will accept the 18,000LB Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 or 21,000LB Demco Hijacker # DM8550035.

If your Ram does not have anything in the bed you will need the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552025-71. This will allow you to bolt the lower brackets to holes that are already in your frame and install a set of industry standard rails in your bed that will accept either the 18,000LB Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 or 21,000LB Demco Hijacker # DM8550035 hitches.

If you are in need of a special locking plate for your specific camper or are unsure if you need one, please let me know what camper and pin box you have.
