Demco Glide Ride Fifth Wheel Shock Absorbing Hitch

Glide Ride hitch

The Demco Glide Ride is a uniquely designed parallel linkage coupler that takes the bumps and jolts out of pulling heavy 5th wheel RVs. The trailer is supported by parallel bars that pivot front and back and return to center by gravity, offering a smoother ride.

Without the Glide Ride, the 'chucking' effects of the road put extreme stress on your RV and trucks' drive train, suspension, body and tires, which can result in costly repairs, shorter vehicle life and a very uncomfortable ride.

Installation is easy. Just remove the existing pin box and replace it with the Glide Ride pin box. The Glide Ride is secured and fastened in the same manner as the original pin box.

The Glide Ride:

  • Absorbs bumps and jolts through a gravity, self-centering parallel linkage system.
  • Greatly reduces stress and fatigue at the hitch point.
  • Maintenance Free.
  • Doesn't effect braking or steering.
  • Helps prolong the life of your truck and RV.
  • Makes a smoother more pleasant ride.
  • Up to 21,000 lbs. G.V.W.R.
  • Models available for many popular late model fifth-wheel trailers.

Glide Ride Fit List: The make and model of your pin box should be shown on the box. If not, please contact the trailer manufacturer with your VIN number. If there is any question about which Glide Ride you need, please contact Demco at 1-800-543-3626.
