Reese Goose Box

I currently tow with an Anderson Ultimate and am quite happy with it but I always look for ways to simplify life. I have started looking at the Reese Goose Box as an upgrade to my standard LCI pin box. Do they offer any additional clearance when towing with a short bed truck?

I am following this. I have a 2021 Phoenix 367BH, tow vehicle is 2018 Ram 2500 Cummins. Fifth wheel sits nose high but I think the last time I measured I had 6 inches between trailer and truck bed. I think the only thing I would benefit by using a Goosebox is gaining bed space, not much help to lower the front of fifth wheel?

Iím more concerned about the clearance when turning since I have a short bed truck.

How short are you talking about? 6.5ft or smaller? If smaller then 6.5ft goosebox is not for you! I have a goosebox on a 2018 Phoenix 336RL on a 2019 RAM 2500 6.4 Hemi w/ 6.5ft box and it pulls fine with plenty of clearance. There is a little adjustment available if needed with the goosebox.
