Another thing to watch for is business signs, like fast food ones. I was about 12" from learning that the hard way, twice, on our maiden voyage.

Do a test pull when hooking up before raising the front jacks. Some of the hitches sold are pure junk the way the work.

Fifth wheels are harder on marriages in my experience. My DW wants to divorce me each time we try to back it up into our storage spot.

I am new to 5th wheelers also. Backing up is different. Towing is easier. Setting up is about the same amount of effort.

Congrats on the 5th Wheel! Great timing for this post, as I am seriously thinking about moving to a 5th Wheel myself! I'm sure there are a lot more things to consider than the height and turning corners as far as advise. This is a great forum and I'm sure they'll be more info as the day goes on.
