Thinking of getting the PullRite #2400 SuperLite.
Anyone have any info, thoughts on this hitch?
Kinda like a Andersen hitch but different, cause ball is on the king pin.

I've been looking at these extensively and a friend just bought one. They are highly rated and I have not seen any complaints. The "funnel" is steel on the PullRite vs. plastic on the Anderson. I can't find any failures of the PullRite and Andersen had to beef up their aluminum tubes due to failure. PullRite has a great reputation.

Last hitch was a B&W turnover-ball hitch which was excellent, but with new a truck and trying to keep weight down this look'ed like a good option, but haven't had much luck with replies. Hopefully will get more replies.

You'll need to do a search like I did. I've found conversations here and on the Forest River Forum. I'm not a fan of forum searches because they rarely turn up what you're looking for but uncover 10 page posts that mention your key word once in the 10 pages. The only negative I've heard was from an Andersen fan who said they copied Andersen. All the reviews I've seen say they love the PullRite Superlite and that the hitch has eliminated problems associated with conventional 5th wheel hitches.

If you have a Turnover ball why not get the SuperLite 2600 Single Point? It captures around the gooseneck ball and you don't need to buy an additional ball to rail adapter.
I have the 2600 and like it.
edit add...I'm a bit confused, are you using your existing truck or buying a new truck? If buying new get the factory prep package with pucks and just drop a gooseneck ball in the puck and get the Superlight 2600.
If you buy a GM truck you need the PullRite support kit. GM under bed support rails are not under the gooseneck ball and require additional support. The kit looks like an easy install.
PullRite customer service is pretty good too.

Now we have returned carrying the pin weight on the paper thin bed floor of these newer trucks vs directly to the frame with a puck mounted hitch. Back to the future!

Totally agree with Chris...the new truck beds are not designed to support, using single point attachment like the old trucks, with heavy steel beds. The best option moving forward is the puck/frame mount, and the hitches designed for direct fit (no adapter).

I just pick up a PullRite 2600 for my Ram 3500 but I can't tell you noting about it because I just got it last week and I haven't been out to my fiver.

FYI, a friend just installed one on his fiver while parked in the storage lot. He had a minor surprise when he could not fit the adapter over his pin, due to burrs that where rolled over by the traditional hitch. Just be prepared to file/grind any burrs to fit the adapter. He had to make a couple trips because he didn't anticipate that repair.

I love my Pullrite superlite hitch. I've got the removable rails in my truck bed that mount to the frame of the truck. The bed does not support the hitch at all. The hitch is lightweight and easy to install and take out. Hooking up is a breeze.
