Wanting a 5ver RV for horse shows

Im wanting to get a 5th wheel rv to take to horse shows. I have a 8 horse horse trailer that I haul with my 08 F350 and was thinking of getting a rv to stay in instead of a hotel. Me and my wife just had alittle girl and would like to be able to stay close to the horses at the show incase the baby gets fusy we can take her to the rv instead of driving all the way back to the hotel. I would be pulling this with my 08 f250. What are yall's opinions.

I've got a short bed, and I pull a 35' 5th wheel Toy Hauler. The secret is in the hitch, it slides backward for sharp turns.
Mine is a SuperGlide from Pullrite, that automatically slides back as your turn gets sharper. It works on a cam action.
There are also manual sliders that you have to get out, pull a lever, get back in the truck, pull forward, get out, lock the hitch back in. Still very workable, and much less expensive, but requires more effort on your part.

Carraiges are nice, sunnybrooks are also pretty nice up there and alot of them are all alluminum frames so they save weight. This last year I seen alot a Holiday Rambler presidentials come through as well.

Crap I had no idea. Im used to the regular b&w turnover ball hitch. I saw they make a 5th wheel hitch that drops into the ball spot but i dont think it slides at all

No those adapters wouldnt slide, personally I wouldnt get a 5th wheel with a short box. I think there are some smaller 5th wheeler's that are better suited to a shortbox though.

Here is one for you, and you can put a golf cart in the back for the horse shows.
