I already know I'll need a new slider hitch which is another cost. I've always had a long bed but most of the rigs I've seen with 5th wheels have a short bed. Thanks to all for your comments, all are appreciated.
We have had two mega cabs one SRW and now DRW, there great trucks. The DRW does tow a 5th wheel better than a SRW and only $1200 more in cost. But I'm sure all DRW truck tow great.
We did get the bed designed for the quick hitch install/ removal. This was well worth the extra cost.
We also got the camera on the brake light above the cab which helps with hooking up the 5th wheel, another great option if your doing a 5th wheel.
