Id highly recommend a slider as well. I use mine all the time just to be on the safe side. I didnt have it at first and had a couple close calls and decided Id get one now before I absolutely had to have it. Also have a short bed.

Sorry to have high jacked the thread; however, thank you all for the information. Guess I'll be getting a slider hitch before the new fifth wheel.

Horaz - because of the Reese Revolution pin box I did not get the sliding hitch. I just use a 16K Reese Titan which is a stellar set up. It has a dual jaw set up which is a trick at first to hook up. I figured out quickly and now I hitch up nice and easy. The dual jaws take away the chucking completely. I am able to turn nearly 90 degrees. "My little V-6" is not stock by a long shot. I have a Bully Dog Triple Gas tuner and cold air intake, Summit Racing tranny cooler, aeon springs,Bilstien HD shocks and Michelin 10e rated tires. I have zero issues pulling this trailer. Is it the best package, no. It does the job for now and when the time comes I will go up to a F-250. Enjoy the adventure buying this floor plan, it's a good one.

I have had my 29.5 BHDS for about a month now. I went with the Reese Revolution. I have a 6.5' bed and can turn it around in my front yard no problem without having to worry with sliding a hitch. So far I love the Reese!!
