Thanks crocus I guess I thought I knew what he was talking about . But now that I do heres my answer . axle set back would make a difference but not a lot .
YOU also have to remember that 5 or 6 plus feet of that 5er is ahead of were the 21rr starts making that 30 footer 25 feet ish . does that make sense ?

===================================
Good point. Apparently, that 21rr is a heck of a lot longer than 21 feet, more like 27 feet!
And the axles do look like they are set back. So the configuration might be more like a 40 foot fifth wheel!

With the weight of a rear kitchen, my axles are set back quite a bit.
I was surprised at how wide I have to drive the truck around a street corner to keep the TT off the curbs.
