Auxiliary fuel tank recommendation

I have an F250 diesel 4x4 towing a 2015 Chaparral 29bhs. I want to add a low profile auxiliary fuel tank with a 40-50 gallon capacity. Can anyone recommend a fuel tank that won't interfere with the fifth wheel. I'm most concerned about the pump height but I know that I need to make sure I have adequate space between the rails and the front of the bed.

Thanks

Thank you bluewoo. These tanks look like a good option. Do you have any experience with these?

No, I just like stuff like this and take in what info I can. The video is very good too showing the install of a xxl tank @ 50 gals not sure if that would work for you or not. Just like to help where I can.

Have a look at transfer flow also. I have a 50 gallon in my dually. It has it's own pump and automatically fills when the main drops down to a certain level. Expensive but good for me. Fits under my tonneau cover. https://www.transferflow.com/

I have been thinking of adding one as well.
I was thinking of gravity feeding either a RDS or ATI aux tank
RDS tanks are available at Northern Tool
Auxiliary-Transfer tanks: Fuel Transfer Tanks | Fuel Tank Tool Box + Auxiliary Fuel Tanks | Fuel Transfer + Lubrication | Northern Tool + Equipment

I would also recommend Transfer Flow aux fuel tanks. I used to sell them, top of the line, top quality, DOT approved and safe. They aren't cheap but compared to others I used to sell they stand out above all. What makes them more expensive is the pump system to keep your main tank at a preset level. They are made in California so they meet some rigorous testing.
