With the 18K Autoslide you'll have the peace of mind that comes with not having to worry about cornering small spaces. The Automatic slider offers 14 inches of automatic slide so there is no more getting in and out of the vehicle to manually slide the hitch! Just hook up and drive!

Rain or shine, the Demco 18K Autoslide simply makes your towing experience easier. It is equipped with a double pivot head that makes hooking up and disconnecting safe and easy. Also, polyurethane bumpers that are integrated into the head; which eliminates any noise from the hitch when towing. The NEW revised 2014 head unit now has a wrap around jaw WITH a locking slide bar for a smoother, safer, and more secure ride.

What makes this hitch even better is that it is 100 percent Made in America.

This hitch will fit into the standard Reese, Husky rails that sit on top of the bed. Rails and mounting bracketry are not included. You can follow this link to order your rails Rail Kit #30035.
