Well there is a saying those who tow with a short bed truck. When not using a slider hitch will either have hit the cab or will hit the cab in the future! It is just a matter of time. I have had three 5TH wheels trailers all being towed with a short bed truck, and I've have had the slider hitch being used in the truck. My wife still checks the clearance when we back up sometimes with our Cedar Creek, the trailer gets awful close to the cab with the hitch extended when backing up sometimes.
Just my $0.02.
