preference on fifth wheel hitch?

Going to be setting my F250 up for toy hauler towing-- what are the thoughts out there on preferred brand/type of fifth wheel hitches? I will be looking at a slider to give me more manueverability with the short bed.

Yeah I know -- the shell is toast-- already arranged to swap it for an Access cover and some more goodies!

Well, the best slider is the SuperGlide by PullRite.
But you're gonna be limited on how big and heavy a toy hauler you can legally tow.

Yup Superglide, I havnt used one but I have been considering a 5th wheel for a while and with a short bed I think the Superglide is the way to go. They have models with 12K, 16K 20K and 24K ratings, so make sure the hitch is rated for at least what the trailer is. Any idea on the specs of what your planning on pulling?

PullRite has a SAFER, STRONGER, BETTER designed hitch for you

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

In the very early stages.....still have to find the right 5er and swap the motor home. Looking at some of the new "shorter" units that can boondocks with as well as get into the forest service campgrounds with length restrictions. More than likely 34 foot or less.
