Any help would be appreciated.
We have a 2012 F250 Super Duty Crew Cab, 6.7L diesel... 81.8" box (the 6ft 9in you speak of)...pulling a 2012 31RLTS Jayco Pinnacle, using B/W companion hitch, not a slider. Not having an issue with turning, angle of approach, etc. Pulls, turns, just fine (did have to put air bags, air suspension on rear of truck... F250 rides nice without the load due to the soft rear springs... so, soft springs in back not all bad.. in that truck becomes your "go to the mall car for the wife" once you unhook. (Advantage of the air springs.. just deflate after pulling the 5th wheel... and have your "car" back!).
Good luck with the shopping.. lots of things to think about, work out... but worth it in the end.
