Help in choosing a 5th wheel combo gooseneck hitch
I have a 08 F250, 6 3/4' bed, I am looking to get a 5th wheel and gooseneck hitch. I wont be towing much, but I want to get a hitch that could do both. I didnt see any threads talking about this. But I want it removeable, since I will be using my bed more, and towing seldom. Its like having 4 wheel drive and not needing it, but when you do, your thankful you have it.
I've seen a style of gooseneck, with an adaptor that converts the 5th wheel of the trailer into a gooseneck for the truck. (must have tools handy, and takes some time to convert)
I seen a 5th wheel that removes and the gooseneck is hidden/or comes out when not being used, so the only thing that shows on the bed is small cover plates. (which I like)
I also seen the 5th wheel set-up that keeps the mounting rails inside the bed (which I really dont like)
So what brands are you using and what do you like/dont like about them?
EVERYONE CLAIMS TO BE THE BEST, but I want hear from actual users. I know I been told your not suppose to tow a 5th wheel with a short bed, but I see them going down the road all the time.
