Re: Fifth wheel questions
When you are talking about a trailer that long, it deff pays to go ahead and get a fifth wheel/goosneck. I prefer fifth wheel, but as you said, the goosneck ball on yours flips down. We install both this option and the ball where you pull a pin and it comes out of the bed and you throw a magnet down over the hole in the bed.
Back with the two is no comparison. Sharper turns are possible without a bumper pull, and the danger of jackknifing isnt as possible.
My 0.02, get a fifth wheel. You'll be glad you did. Also, if you want a sprayed in bedliner, do it BEFORE you get the hitch installed. This way there is no open edges that are left uncovered. And remember, regardless of which you choose, keep it well greased always.
