Do You Need A Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch If You Have A 6-1/2 Foot Truck Bed.


I have 2019 toyota tundra sr5 4x4 5.7 hemi with a crew cab and the 6.7 bed . Do I need a sliding 5th wheel hitch?


Expert Reply:

Yes, I highly recommend getting a sliding 5th wheel hitch. Some newer RVs will have contoured and rounded edges that will help give more clearance for turning but it still isn't enough sometimes.

If you need a hitch with a higher weight limit I recommend going with the Demco.
