Introducing the 16K Husky 5th Wheel Hitch Glider (31196), a versatile and reliable towing accessory designed to provide enhanced maneuverability and safety during your fifth wheel towing adventures. With its impressive features and robust construction, this hitch glider ensures a smooth and hassle-free towing experience.
The Husky Towing Slider is engineered to offer 10 inches of travel in both forward and backward directions, providing ample clearance between your tow vehicle and trailer during slow or sharp turns. This added clearance ensures that you can navigate tight corners and challenging driving situations with ease and confidence.
One of the standout features of this hitch glider is its smooth sliding action along a single composite rail. This innovative design eliminates noise and wear, enhancing the overall towing experience. Furthermore, the reduced metal-to-metal contact minimizes operational noise, ensuring a quieter ride.
The composite rail used in the Husky Towing Slider is resistant to rust, unlike traditional metal wheels. This ensures long-lasting performance and durability, even in harsh weather conditions. You can rely on this hitch glider to provide a reliable and maintenance-free towing solution.
The no-bind latching mechanism of the Husky Towing Slider ensures easy and secure operation. It allows for seamless engagement and disengagement, preventing any binding or jamming issues. This mechanism adds convenience and peace of mind to your towing experience.
The 16K Husky 5th Wheel Hitch Glider is compatible with Silver or Black Series 16K W fifth wheel hitches, providing versatility and flexibility to suit your specific towing setup. It can be installed in current 4-bolt and 10-bolt base rails with a 20-5/8" footprint, making it easy to integrate into your existing towing system.
Operating the hitch glider is effortless, thanks to its ergonomic handle. The handle is designed for easy operation over your truck's side rails, ensuring a comfortable grip and smooth maneuvering. It can be easily moved to the unlocked position, regardless of the angle of your truck or trailer.
With a towing weight capacity of 16,000 lbs (GTW), the Husky Towing Slider is built to handle heavy loads with confidence. Its heavy-duty steel construction and powder-coated finish ensure durability and corrosion resistance. The powder-coated finish is rated for 500 hours of salt fog resistance, making it ideal for various weather conditions.
