Fifth wheel hitch question

Can anyone using the slide bar fifth wheel hitch sold by ETI please let me know if you are happy with it. I am primarily concerned with the side to side movement, not the front to back. What is your overall impression ? Looking at the Curt Q 16, but it is more expensive and maybe overkill for such a light trailer. Picking up 5.0TA in October.
Thanks, Mark from Florida

I have the slider that I bought from Reace. I mounted my hitch 4" in front of the axle and thought I would need the slider ........ I've never used the slide function other than to check it is working okay.

The hitch is sturdy with no side to side movement; my main beef with it is that it's very heavy.
