A great question! i bought a 33.5 RETS last July and since then between the '14 brochure, the '15 brochure, and Jayco's website I've found at least 4 or 5 different lengths listed. I have no clue how long it actually is! It officially grew a foot the first week I owned it. Now when people ask I tell them it's about 36 feet.

For total overall length would I not just measure from front bumper of truck to rear bumper on fifth wheel? Who cares what hangs over my box.

That being said the OP asked a great question. The brochure on my unit said 40.5 feet overall but when I measured front cap to rear bumper I ended up at 42.5 feet.

I think cariboocreek has it right, just get a tape measure and measure the outfit when hooked up? I did that with my truck, FW and boat all attached at got about 73' so I know how long my "train" is. Don't worry, I don't try to pull into the campgrounds with everything hooked up, I do drop the boat at the marina before setting up my FW.

From my experience, the difference of the two lengths of a 5th wheel is that the smaller measurement is the inside measurement from the front of the 5'er to the inside rear of the 5'er. The outside measurement is from the front cap (or pin box) to the real bumper. I have measured mine several times and this seems to be true measurements. Also, I have measured more than one 5'er. Also total measurement for tow vehicle and 5'er would be determined by the length of the truck with the 5'er hitched up.
