I have the Reese Revolution on my 5th wheel and I pull it with a 1/2 ton Ram 1500. It works great it turns under the trailer not in the box.

The owners manual for my 1500 Chevy Crew Cab with 5.75 ft. bed specifically says it's not designed for a 5th wheel trailer.

I have a Toyota Tundra CrewMax with super short bed (5.5ft bed). I use the massive Pullrite SuperGlide Hitch with Super Rails- 12k Slider.

You should see the amount of confidence I display while maneuvering those extremely tight spots at the campground while other campers are staring at me with awe.

I have pulled 3 different 5th wheels over a number of years. A couple of my hitches were non sliders. I never had a problem but was and am still always aware of where the 5th wheel is to the corner of my cab. I have another slider but have never had to move it.

I have the 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Reese slider hitch. Have camped in a lot of places the last year now and have never had to use the slider yet. The extra foot on the 3/4 ton versus 1/2 ton makes all the difference in the world. I do keep an eye on the corners while backing. Just take it slow and easy.

I have only towed a 5er with a 8ft bed(a real pickup) so just thinking.i have an "extended pin box" on mine that is supposed to eliminate the need for a slider on the 6.5 boxes with the newer style front rv's . Read lots of posts on several forums of short bed owners saying this.

Towing a fifth wheel with a 6.5 foot bed and an extended pin will work, most of the time.
