Will fit short bed with hardware installed under the bed of the pickup? Depends on whether your truck bed has puck receivers, otherwise you need to install under the bed mount https://www.demco-products.com/rv-to...nder-bed-mount ? I have installed both.

Moride Pin Box capture plate comes with the hitch. A locking plate is required with one of the following suspension pin boxes: Demco Glide Ride, MorRyde, RotoFlex, Trailair Tri Glide, Trailair Flexair or 5th Airborne per the link above.

The hardware referenced in the post bolts to the frame. That will need to be ordered from Demco. The hitch will fit a short bed truck, actually it is made for a short bed truck because it will slide automatically as the truck turns.

i though with the left & right adjustment bars on top of the plate you do NOT need a capture plate...

advise ??

The left & right adjustment bars are the capture plate. You are correct.

What ever the name capture plate refers to I have the plate that is bolted to the pin box that slides into the adjustable guides. It bolts to the Moride pin box.

SuperGlide hitches require a capture plate. Demco doesn't. The rails on the Demco captures the pin.

from what i learnt. The Morryde pin box requires the side to side motion to be locked into place when using a "DEMCO" or a Pullrite Super Glide hitch.

The pin box adapter plates come with all that is necessary to do that lock.

It does allow front to back movement.

I don't know if you order parts for JUST that side to side lock would you still need the adapter plate....

If using a Demco auto slide you need nothing more then a factory pin box.

Be advised there are two different sets of capture plates. If you have the standard Rota-flex pin box then you need the Demco Autoslide Capture Plates for Rota-Flex Pin Boxes Item # DM6171.

I have been running with the Demco for about 8 years. Works great adjusting in turns.

I run the Demco with my Ram mega-cab w/ short box. I’ve used it with my 2016 Monty that had the MorRyde Rubber pin box and my 2020 that has the Roto-flex.

With the MorRyde rubber pin box it required the adaptor plate that eliminates the side to side motion.

With the Rotoflex I don’t require an adapter plate but rely on the adjustable slide brackets to snug up against the pin box.

I’ve always said, the Demco auto slide is great…. once you’re hitched. Hooking up can be a pain when you can’t get straight in line with the rig. ��
