Towing w/ a short bed
Hey guys I just bought an '05 Ram 2500 Cummins, Quad Cab, SB, 4x4. I'm planning on pulling a 28'-34' 5th wheel. My problem is that I REALLY don't want a 5th wheel hitch in my bed all the time so I was thinking about having a gooseneck installed and putting a 5th-gooseneck adapter on the trailer; not to mention the added versatility of a gooseneck over a 5th wheel. I called a hitch company and they told me the B&W hitch places the ball a few inches in front of the axle and recommended I purchase a ball extension that moves the ball 4" to the rear. I realize that I'm not in the ideal situation here but I just don't want a slider hitch in my bed. Do any of you guys run this sort of setup, and have you had any problems if so?
