    Andersen Ultimate and a Short Bed with your Solitude?

    Hi All,
    I'm now on my 3rd Companion Slider. This one is also having the lockup issues the other ones have had. I am going to return it I think, unless the factory can come up with a solution. I have a Ram Mega Cab Short Bed, and I have been looking at the Andersen hitch. Anyone running one with this or a comparable truck with their Solitude?

    I can't say I am using an Andersen hitch. I had the slider hitch from my short bed 2500HD moved over into my 3500HD, but the company that produced it was purchased and it is no longer produced. I have actually never used the slider function in either truck. Guess I have been lucky that I have never had to back into that tight of a spot

    I don't know anything about the Anderson, but the Pullrite slider is great hitch. They also have a clean bed design but it can't be used with other hitches. They do have a model that fits on standard rails. Good Luck on your decision.

    Are you using the slider a lot now? I had an issue with mine not latching when it rolled forward or back. I have since fixed that by changing the spring location on the bottom. What problems are you having with yours?

    I also use the pullrite slider and it has been a great hitch so issues at all.

    I use a Reese Sidewinder. 5'7" box. It works like a charm with no moving parts, saves weight and gives you more room in the box of the truck.
