The longer the truck, the more room you need for maneuvering. But I doubt that 1.5' makes that much of a difference. Pure guess, though.

I have a long long truck and long long camper. I need a runway and still mess it up!

No. It might take a little more getting used to, but once you have it figured out, it is no harder than a short bed. I went from a short bed to a long bed, and am back to a short bed. As far as towing and parking and such, no difference at all. But I sure miss the extra room the 8' bed provided.
