#2900 ISR Series 20K SuperGlide, Automatically Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for Short Bed Trucks

The #2900 20K ISR Series SuperGlide is similar to the #2700 ISR SuperGlide, but with a heftier weight rating for pulling larger fifth wheel trailers. The hitch head and the cam arm mechanism for the #2900 is built with heavier components out of high quality American steel.  Those parts are well equipped to handle the increased torque of a heavier trailer as the SuperGlide safely and quickly moves your trailer away from your truck cab during turns!

When truck manufacturers decided to expand popular trucks' cab space and decreased the cab-to-axle distance in the bed, fifth wheel hitches that were originally designed to give you a 90º turn with an 8 ft. bed truck could not be used in the new short bed trucks and a solution was needed.

SuperGlide is the only real solution to safely and efficiently regain that 90º turning capability.  It's fully automatic, so there's no getting in and out of your truck to throw levers before and after turns like you have to do with other manual slide hitches.  With 14" of slide during turns, the SuperGlide quickly moves your trailer away from your truck cab without you having to do a thing! No anticipation...just get in and drive!

And SuperGlide is easy to remove without the need for tools.  By easily removing the 40 lb. hitch head that is held in place with a couple pins and clips, then the remaining base is relatively lightweight...second lightest among sliding hitches on the market!

If you already have a truck with industry standard rails, then you can easily replace your old fifth wheel hitch a SuperGlide (or Super 5th, or even our new SuperLite line of ISR hitches).  Or if you’re not happy with your old rails, we invite you to upgrade to a stronger, high grade steel ISR Series rail system by PullRite. 

By swapping out your old fifth wheel hitch for a SuperGlide, with its fore-to-aft adjustable base feet, you can center your pivot point over the axle where it belongs for the best right possible with no bumping, chucking or sway.  Most fifth wheels on the market today overlook this critical positioning over the axle and are mounted ahead of it.  It’s a great upgrade with minimal cost.

If you’re starting fresh and don’t have a towing system yet, we would encourage you to consider your options.  We have several mounting systems to choose from, so start here to see what's available to you.  And be sure to check out our mounting systems that feature Clean Bed Technology CBT.

Do you have an OE Puck mounting system?  Did you know you can quickly convert this, and any ISR Series hitch to a puck mounted one?  Find out how!

Notes/Limitations

A towing system includes each vehicle and component involved in towing. Each item in your towing system has a capacity or weight rating.  You trailer has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, or GVWR.  Your truck has a tow capacity, payload capacity, and possibly more. In addition, your fifth wheel hitch has a weight rating.  This weight rating must be at, or above, the GVWR of your trailer for you to tow safely.  In addition, if your truck can tow larger loads (has a larger capacity) than the rating of your hitch, your system is only safe to tow loads at the lower rating, that of the hitch.

Your mounting kit also has a weight rating, just like your fifth wheel hitch. Many times, these rating are designed to match. But, this is not always the case. Your mounting kit may be higher rated then your fifth wheel hitch, but it also could be lower depending on the components involved.  The lowest rating of any one component in the system becomes the rating of the entire system. If your mounting kit is rated to 18,000 lbs., and your hitch is rated at 24,000 lbs., the weight rating of the entire system will not be above 18,000 lbs.  Other components in the system could lower the actual system rating further.

It is the end users responsibility to ensure a safe towing experience. To this end, it is your responsibility to ensure that the truck, trailer, hitching components, and all other items involved are rated or have a capacity sufficient for the loads involved.

SuperGlide...How It Works!
Clean Bed Technology
Consequences of Towing a Short Bed Truck WITHOUT a SuperGlide!
PullRite's Exclusive, Fully Automatically Locking Hitch Plate
1
Can I pull other Fifth wheel trailers with my SuperGlide hitch?

Your SuperGlide hitch can only pull trailers equipped with the SuperGlide Capture Plate.  If you hook up to a trailer that does not have a Capture Plate installed, there is no control to keep the hitch in the forward towing position and the weight of the trailer will cause the head to turn and slam or “free fall” to the rear of the hitch’s angled cam slot, which may cause damage to the hitch, truck, and the king pin.  We do not recommend locking the hitch in any way to keep it in the forward position.

2
Will a standard hitch be able to tow my trailer with the Capture Plate installed?

The Capture Plate will need to be removed from the pin box before a standard fifth wheel hitch can tow your trailer.  If the plate is not removed, the king pin will not rotate in the hitch and damage will result to the Capture Plate and conventional hitch.  Part #3336 is a SuperGlide Conversion Adapter (pg. i of your Owners Manual) that will allow a standard fifth wheel hitch to tow your trailer with the Capture Plate installed.  The adapter is used in conjunction with your Fifth Wheel Plate, or “head” of the SuperGlide

3
Is there a cover available for my SuperGlide hitch?

Yes.  It is part #2912 and is available from your RV Dealer or by calling Customer Service (not available for #2300 SuperGlide at this time)

4
Can I put a bed liner in my truck after the hitch is installed?

The industry standard base rails can be installed over a spray-in bed liner.  All other liners will require an opening to be cut through the liner, to allow the base rails to install against the metal of the bed. 

5
Can I leave the hitch attached to my trailer and use the trailer jacks to lift the hitch out of the truck?

Yes, you can use the trailer jacks to lift the hitch out of the truck.  The hitch should not however be left hanging from the king pin.  Once you have the hitch lifted out of the truck you should have a stand available to lower the hitch onto for storage.

6
Can I hook up or unhook at a 90 degree angle?

Hooking up can only be accomplished when the truck and trailer are aligned within 10º of each other.  See “Hitching” on page 16 of the Owners Manual for more information on hooking up.  Unhooking by pulling the release handle can only be accomplished when the truck and trailer are aligned within 10º of each other.  In emergency situations you can pull the clevis pins and clips that attach the Fifth Wheel Plate or “head” assembly to the Rocker Arm, lower your landing gear and raise the trailer up until the Fifth Wheel Plate is free from the Rocker Arm.  Pull forward from under the parked trailer.  At that point you can pull the Release Handle, remove the head from the king pin and reattach it to your hitch with the clevis pins and clips.

7
Can I use a Teflon disc or lube plate on the king pin plate?

The king pin box and SuperGlide plate or “head” move together and since there is no friction, there is no need for any grease or a lube plate.  Use of a Teflon disc or lube plate would cause the king pin to be too short and problems hooking up will occur. 

Testimonials
"...smooth as butter."

I just tried my new 2900 after installing it. What a great piece of workmanship. This [hitch] is as smooth as butter. Really nice!

Works Like A Champ!

“Thank you again so much for … the great demo of your product. When I first backed up under the camper it didn’t hook up! Then I saw that I wasn’t in the “sweet spot” that your great demo showed me. I lowered the camper, and it scooped right up and slammed in to the locked position. It pulled like a dream!! No more slamming backwards when I went around a corner at speed. I couldn’t get it to unlock once I got to my storage place, but once again I thought about your demo, and chocked the wheels and took some weight off the hitch and it unlocked perfectly. So, it turns out that if I do the right things then it works like a champ!!!!  Thank you so much for the detailed demo, and all the time you spent with us.”

{to the dealership he writes…} 

“…I had you install the Demco Autoglide and all of my worse fears about 5th wheels were realized in the poor quality of the Demco Autoglide. If not for Sonny, … and Paul (Percival) from PullRite stepping up to take care of me then this email would have been 180 degree polar opposite.”

“…my consumer advice is to get the Demco Autoglide out of your showroom, and don’t let them lose your customers repeat business.”

"Thank you again, and PullRite has a customer for life in me!"

No Comparison With PullRite!

“Driving back to Cabot there were times I forgot I was pulling a trailer.  No "bucking or bouncing " just a nice smooth ride. Needless to say I am more than pleased with how the PullRite performs. There is really no comparison with the PullRite to anything else on the market.

…I want to thank you for "going the extra mile" in helping me out of a large mess with your product. I will be posting reviews on the RV forum's that I belong to about your hitch and what it did for me...”
