5th wheel hitch.

Wow! That is a short bed. My set up is with an F250 with a 6.5 bed.

Makes me laugh when members talk about a 6.5 ft box being a "short bed".

I bought it to pull a TT, not a 5er, but when we were ready to move on from the Roo I considered a 5er. The previous owner used it to pull a small 5er and left the rails in it...and a small dent in the cab on the passenger side!

A 6.5' is a short bed for a f250.
I don't see many trucks with a shorter bed.
