Fifth wheel hitches????/

Hey guys new to the forum just bought my first RV. I am wondering what kind of fifth wheel hitch is the best? I have a F350 single wheel short box (6.6ft) and just bought a 2012 Wildcat 323QB fifth wheel. What you guys think would work best for a fifth wheel hitch for me?? I also have a slip tank in the back it is low profile checker plated on L shaped. I would like to get one that the tank can stay in not sure if this is possible??

With a short bed you will probably want a slider hitch. Others will chime in soon about what makes a good slider hitch. So I will not comment further except to say, be sure you get a dual pivot head.

I am very happy with my SuperGlide 3300. I keep my generator up against the cab wall of my short bed. and never had a problem in steep turns.

I advocate the Reese Revolution. No requirement for sliding in a short bed, no worry about damaging the cab of the truck and quicker response of RV when backing up. I have a 6'4" box and I can carry 2 bikes in front of the hitch.

I have the same one and have never used the slider when used in conjunction with the Reese Revolution. Check out this video.
