PullRite announced that it is increasing the rating of one of its most popular fifth-wheel hitches, the #2700 automatic sliding ISR SuperGlide, that fits industry standard base rails to 16,000 pounds.
The rating increase will not translate to a hike in price.
The ISR SuperGlide will give dealers a hitch that meets the needs of even more short-bed truck owners, while also providing the safety and convenience of an automatic sliding hitch, PullRite noted in a news release.
“Originally the #2700 SuperGlide had been rated at 15000, but after extensive testing utilizing the SAE J2638 testing standards, including more than 300,000 cycles of punishing tests in three dimensions, and additional rigorous road testing, the hitch simply earned a higher weight rating,” said Jim Karasch, project engineer.
“This is just another example of our commitment to being a U.S. manufacturer,” said Scott Later, PullRite national sales manager.
“Everyone at PullRite understands that we have to be innovative, driven, and efficient to produce great products with great value—noting that most competitors have moved manufacturing to China, India, or Mexico in order to produce cheaper hitches using foreign labor and materials.”
President Randy Pulliam said that the company’s decision to continue manufacturing in the U.S. had created a loyal dealer base, helping the company set sales records the past four years in a row.

Your travel life has the essence of a dream.
It is something outside the normal, yet you are in it.
It is peopled with characters you have never seen before and in all probability will never see again.
It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness, and pangs of longing.
But you are like the Vikings or the master mariners of the Elizabethan age, who have gone into a world of adventure, and home is not home until you return.
—Agatha Christie, British mystery writer
