We bought a Pullrite 2714 to use when pulling our 40' Landmark. We have an 07' SWB CC. Never had an issue with it. It was darn expensive. But never have to worry about turning.

I use the Anderson Ultimate hitch and I can turn 90 degrees without hitting. I like the fact that it is light weight and easy to hook up/detach. I would recommend it.

06 short bed crew cab, Anderson 16k hitch, 31' Denali 5th wheel. Never had an issue without having the slider. There is literally only one spot I can ever remember trying to get into where I was "close" but the bigger issue was that my truck was so close if not past 90* that I wasn't moving the trailer in the direction I wanted anyways. My trailer does have the concaved front cap, which I *think* all newer trailers have, so you should be fine without a slider. But like many say, better to have and not need than need and not have. With that said, its nice to not have to load that extra weight of a slider in/out of the bed since during non-camping seasons I remove mine.

Bought 6/16/11: 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, 6.6L Diesel (LBZ), CCSB, Bose system, leather. Southern Comfort Conversions edition. Includes: Custom faded two tone paint job, leveling kit, 18" chrome wheels, aftermarket interior trim, billet grille, remote start, wheel to wheel steps, and Line X installed. I upgraded to: Cognito UCA kit w/ shock extenders and Bilstien 5100's, Tie rod sleeves, 300W Rockford Fosgate Amp & 2 JL 8" subs behind rear seat, Tinted front windows to match, BakFlip F1 Tonneau cover, Reese 15k 5th wheel hitch, Prodigy brake controller, Toyo AT2's 295/55/R20 w/ Ultra 203 Hunter 20x9, -12, LED Concepts Colormorph Halo kit upper & lower.

thanks again for all the advices! I did my best to research all known options; I'm leaning toward this setup:

local RV lot had this setup on display, seemed very well made and well thought out so I went ahead and purchased it, kit will be here next week for a "next weekend" install!

Curious to know why you didn't do the Pull right 2600? Doesn't need the additional 4 point kit.

When I researched all the mounting bracket options to include "install instructions" and whatever videos I could find online I thought this was one of the cleanest setups that allowed for complete bed removal of all mounting gear; plus I liked the fact that the ISR, Industry Standard Rails, didn't rest on the truck bed floor. According to Pullrite they sit about 3/4" raised above the floor.

I think you can try to use Andersen Hitches 3220 Gooseneck or B&W Companion RVK 3500 Fifth Wheel Hitch because they work very well. Even they still have some drawbacks such as expensive or heavy but I think they do not really matter.
