With the 5.5 ft. box you'll need a Reese Sidewinder (aftermarket) pin box on the 5er. I have the same size box and you can't put a slider type hitch in it.

Here's some advice from eTrailer.com for this situation:
"To determine if the Revolution offers enough extra clearance for your truck and trailer, there are some measurements to look at. First, measure from the center of the hitch jaws to the back of the truck cab and add 22 inches (length of Revolution extension). Then, measure the width of the trailer overhang and divide by 2 to get half."

I would watch the Crusaders the specs seem to run low compared to real life weights. Mine on the web said dry weight of 9950 and dry pin weight of 1950. I add 1180 lbs to the 5er over dry weight and my pin weight jumped from 1950 to 2780 on the scales and from 19.1% to 24.1% of trailer weight. On the 295RST I would plan for pin weight between 1700 and 2000 lbs on the scales with 295RST so added at least 500 lbs for hitch, passengers and misc in truck you probably need a 2200 to 2500 payload on you truck to be with payload specs.

At the time I had 2500HD 3/4 ton and come within 200lbs of max axle weight/tire ratings and 800lbs over payload.

Read this and give some additional information.
