RE: 5er hitch options RAM MegaCab w/6'4" bed - Solitude 310GK

I have a 6’4” box Ram 3500 SRW and didn’t want the worry about taking out the truck back window or the nose of the 5th wheel so went with the Pullrite. It works very slick and you can jackknife easily to get into those tight spots BUT when hooking up or unhooking you pretty much need to be in a straight line (truck and trailer) - the Pullrite manual says you have an allowance of 10 degrees which isn’t very much. I have on 2 occasions been just outside these limits and got stuck. That is could not unhook nor rehook. It took a lot of maneuvering to get unhooked at which point the trailer dropped. It would have crunched the box but luckily the kingpin landed on the frame of the hitch. The landing gear were not fully extended but were down. You also need to know that with the Pullrite you will need a capture plate to make the hitch slide properly. This is only an issue if someone else is going to move your trailer( i.e. service) and they don’t have a sliding hitch. Having said that, itis easy to remove and install.
