Researching Puma's 253 Fbs

New to the forum, trying to do my homework before buying a 5th wheel. I want to tow my fishing boat behind a fifth wheel, so I was looking at a Puma 253 FBS. I have a 2012 ford duelly 6.7 with bags. My boat is 22' from prop to ball. I know all models have there issues but I'm looking for red flags if you guys can help. Trying to keep my OAL under 70'. Thanks

Welcome to the forum. Might check state law for towing another trailer behind your 5th wheel. Depending on where you mount the hitch for the boat may void your warranty. Later RJD

There was another post a few days ago about someone who tried to come through Florida with a similar set-up, but was stopped by FHP and told it was not legal. I am on I-75 a lot and never see two items being towed, other than a piggy back 18 wheeler.
