Blue Ridge and short box

I can't find anything stating that the Blue Ridge 2950RK is short box friendly. Anyone have experience with this?

No experience, but just looking at the photo it has a rounded nose. So it's going to be about as shorty friendly as any 5er RV.

However, if you are trying to find a 5er that doesn't need a slider hitch or Sidewinder pin box in a shorty pickup, you're probably going to be disappointed. I wouldn't tow any 5er with a shorty pickup without a SuperGlide hitch. I've done it, but it's too nerve racking, so I don't plan to try it again.

Ditto to what Smokey said. I have seen too many short bed trucks with goonies on the corners and banged up trailers. For me 5er = long bed truck or spring for a slider hitch and then USE it.

Thanks for your replies. I have a slider hitch (manual), but some seem so much more suited than some others.
