Moving up needs?

Wife and I are tossing the idea of upgrading to a fifth wheel. We have a specific one in mind, while it will still fit in most State Parks and NPs, it will be tight. The big question we have is what's different. What new things will we need? Is one hitch better than the others?

heres what we are looking at

Flagstaff 526RLWS or Rockwood 2650ws (same trailer)
Ram 2500 6.4 hemi with 4x4

based on some things i am reading, i may have to be worried about bed height?

Sorry if this sounds stupid, but since we don't know what we don't know...I thought I would ask the experts

Clearly you'll need a fifth wheel hitch. Otherwise, I doubt you need much anything else.

so since i have a Short bed and the new trailer is supposed to have the following

Reese Revolution Hitch (Fifth Wheels)

I know that this is the pin on the trailer, but do I still need a slider hitch? I have a sharp turn into my driveway and clearance would be an issue

or does this pin take the need for the slider away?
