Hi Cookie this is Bill the other half of Barb, Last year We hitch had the red 2007 Dodge Mega Cab with the short bed and was using a Husky 16K 4-way swivel Hitch. Because of the way the RV is designed with the 88% front-end no slider was needed and never had a problem. I just traded for a 2011 3500 GMC crew cab srw short bed 6.9' could you recomend a hitch that might be better suited for the new truck, I believe the same hitch should work without slider. RV is 2011 3450TS
Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Be easy on me, this is my first post.

I am looking for a recommendation as well. I have been looking at the B and W companion. Has gotten great reviews. we just purchased the 2011 3650 and am awaiting delivery. Let me know what you find out.

Hi guys,
I have had a slider hitch for many years now and I have never used it. Really do not need it especially on a Heartland product. Don't waste your money on a slider.

Bill, since we do have the same basic floor plan I can say that what I have would work for you. Truck is different but both are short bed. I have a Curt Q5 20K non slider hitch. I do like it. There are a bunch of different hitches out there so I can only comment on what I have. I am sure others like their setup as well. Depending on what brand you get I would however get one a little larger than 16K. Just my opinion.
I did move your post to the Trailer Hitches and Pin Boxes section of the forum.
