That's why I think I need the auto slide. If the truck box is 6'4", half that is 3'2" to be over axel. If the 5er is 4'1" from corner to center of pin......you can't fit 4'1" into 3'2" of space as far as I can figure.

Is the axle C/L same as center of truck bed??? I don't know. You are right though. It is simple math. Lots of people just don't think of it. That is why cabs are dented. The B&W shown is adjustable to offset to back of bed. One can unbolt arms that is bolted to base and inveert them and it moves pin rearward. Is it enough? You would have to measure.

Sounds like you already ordered the PullRite and adapter. If you did it will work fine but if not listen to the people that have the B&W with the same bed as you. Your RV is a "Modern" style RV and will work fine with the B&W in the rear position.

A simple measurement will tell if it works. I would not take anyone's word for it.
