With a 5th wheel, the front of the trailer overhangs the truck bed. Because of this you can only lower the hitch so far before running into clearance issues between the trucks bed side rails and the trailer. The recommended minimum clearance is generally 6" (my current setup has 5" of clearance when on level ground).
