We have a 28.5BHDS. Look at my sig below.
We tow it with a Toyota Tundra 5.7L Crew Max. 5.5ft Short bed.
We have a Pullrite Superglide Hitch. Look at my sig below.
Yes, it can be done with a 1/2 ton truck. See my other threads involving double towing.

Now we need to gear up my truck for the 5th wheel hitch for when we take delivery in the Spring.
I have a 2014 F150 SuperCrew Ecoboost >> with 5.5ft box << the kicker!
Anyone have any experience with the F150 short box set up? What type of hitch do you have? Does it have Sliders? a Sidewinder?
From what i gather i have a couple of options (please correct me if i am wrong):
#1 - 16K Fixed Head (looking at Reese Pro) with BedRails and Sidewinder
#2 - Reese Elite Head (think its called Signature now!?) with only under bedrails (non visible in box) - not sure if i need sidewinder????
#3 - 16K Fixed head with Elite adapter plate which would allow bed undermount similar to Elite but maybe $400-$500 less of cost
My main question is do i need the sidewinder with the Reese Elite/Signature or can i do without in my 5.5 Short Box?
Anyone have this set up or seen it?!
Can you recommend any other set up?
Is it Spring yet? Thanks in advance for your help!
