Greensboro, North Carolina-based Camco introduces two new fifth wheel hitches, the Eaz-Lift 18K and the 18KS.
The 18K is a stationary fifth wheel hitch, and the 18KS is a sliding hitch.
The hitches feature Eaz-Lift quality on a standard base-rail-style bracket system.
The 18K-stationary and 18KS-slider fifth wheel hitches’ universal design allows them to be mounted to any existing base rails or to Eaz-Lift’s heavy-duty rails.
Ideal for a truck with a short bed, the 18KS utilizes the slider system to avoid truck and trailer damage by allowing additional turning clearance.
Features of the 18K and 18KS include:
Mounts to industry standard 4- and 10-bolt bed rails
11-degree side-to-side pivot with urethane cushions
32-degree, front-to-back pivot
Automatic locking jaws
Durable, powder-coated finish
18,000-pound capacity (4,500-pound vertical)
Secondary handle lock to ensure jaws have been locked closed
The 18K stationary hitch offers:
Adjustable height from 14.5 to 18 inches
The 18KS slider hitch offers these additional features:
Adjustable height from 17.5 to 21 inches
Displaces hitch 9 inches toward tailgate for tight maneuvering
Visible flag on each rail to show the slider has locked in either towing or maneuvering positions
Secondary lock pin ensures primary locking mechanism is fully secured
Fully enclosed rollers and locking mechanism to minimize debris build-up

Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old two-lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers’ fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing one line of a four-line couplet—and the obligatory fifth sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream.
Here is one of the actual signs:
No matter the price
No matter how new
The best safety device
In the car is you
Did this bring back any old memories?
If not, you’re merely a child.
If they do—then you’re old as dirt—LIKE ME!
