I just blows me away that people think they have to go 90* to back a fifth wheel.

I have a 2011 F-250 with a slider hitch. I have yet to use the slide after 2+ years of camping with it. Some of the newer trailers have front caps and the king pin farther out to accommodate the short bed trucks. TV and trailer together is your best answer for it.

Also BE Aware of shady hitch dealers telling you "You can install the base plates for your hitch farther back in the bed." Not a good idea. A properly installed hitch puts king pin of trailer just in front your rear axel.
