Question for the shortbed guys

Wondering if anyone out there uses a Weatherguard R115 type crossover box and pulls a gooseneck or 5th wheel with this set up. This box is 27" wide and by my calculations with an offset gooseneck plate I should have 11-14" of clearance between tool box and gooseneck hitch. Just wondering if this will be enough clearance to keep the gooseneck from hitting the box?

We put the Extra wide saddle box in my friend 03 short bed. You just have to be careful when hooking to the goosneck that you dont back up to far

Did your friend have any issues with articulation and the neck hitting the box like when going uphill or through a dip

Thanks for the input guys. I really like having a box this big and don't want to give it up and will start pulling a gooseneck in the next year.
