What are folks using out there? We are just starting to research and could use the opinions of folks who are using them. With a 2015 Crusader does the newer front design allow us to stay with the same standard type hitch or?? Comments appreciated.
I have a 2008 Ram Mega Cab with the 6'-5'" bed, using a Reese manual slider hitch. The only time I need to extend the hitch is when we are on a narrow campground road and backing into my drive way.
You will need some type of maneuvering device and since you already have the trailer with pin box you will need a slider of some type.
Remember when pulling with a short box truck, standard hitch and fifth wheel trailer there are two types of users one who has hit the cab and one who will hit the cab.
By the way the Power Stroke engine is no Cummins Engine so good luck.
