Flagstaff 524rlws....

New to Forest River forums. Just ordered 2017 Flagstaff FW 524rlws. Never owned forest river product and hopefully made a good choice. Can anyone tell me how you measure a 5th wheel, is it overall length of body? Also I own a 2015 f150 with 2116lb payload capacity and 9200 lb towing capacity. My truck has 5.0 w/355 ratio rear axle. Does anyone else have same setup? How does yours tow? I did have a 30ft 7500 lb travel trailer and it was ok but I think FW will give me more stability and better towing experience this FW is about 600lbs lighter also.thx
