    Truck dealer today said I had to have an 8 foot bed for towing a 5 th wheel. Is this true ?

    Absolutely not! May need to find another I have a short bed Ram for towing my 5er. Now, depending on type of 5er you get etc., you may need a slider 5th wheel hitch.

    The long bed is best for towing but with the right combination you can use a short bed. All depends on the 5th wheel. Think you said in a prevous post a 36 ft. I would go with a long bed for this size 5th wheel. Just be sure you have the proper matched tr for the 5th wheel you get. Do the homework
