We pull a 28' 5th wheel Seahawk with a long bed truck. We have just ordered a new club cab pickup with a short bed. We have been told a sliding hitch is a must to prevent smashing in the rear of the cab. We would like to learn of experiences by "short bed, 5th wheel pullers" Is the automatic slider a must or will the manual one be adequate ? ? We have an RBW hitch... and can have it placed on manual rails... is there a problem? Any comments, stories etc. will be appreciated.
