Glide Ride

The Glide Ride by Demco

The Glide Ride by Demco was uniquely designed as a parallel linkage coupler that takes the bumps and jolts out of pulling heavy 5th Wheel RV's. Due to lack of demand and our choice to focus on our 5th Wheel Hitches line, we discontinued production of the Glide Ride in 2019.
