I don't know why they say it won't work? I have it in a short bed Dodge Mega Cab and it works fine? Question for you though. From your avatar I see you pull a hitch pull trailer. How often do you get in a position you need to back up at 90 deg? Can't do it period with a hitch pull, what is the big deal you can't do it with a 5'r?? I got news for you, you get your 5'r on a 90deg angle to your truck in pulling or backing, you are no longer backing or pulling, you are dragging or shoving it, putting much unnecessary stress on the frame, axles, springs, tires of your trailer...

They said my best option for needing to pull a gooseneck and a fifth wheel would be an Anderson hitch that looks like crap and very unsafe in my opinion.
