Toolbox & Fifth Wheel

Does anyone tow with an over the rail toolbox (i.e weatherguard) and a fifth wheel?

We have one in our 3500 long bed and so far never had any problems, but I don't want to get to a place and realize it wont work.

Just wondering what others experiences with this setup are.

Iwould think it would be fine until you absolutely need to make that sharp turn and can't make it, besides what could possibly go wrong?

I have the Weather Guard 90 gallon L tank in mine with a Fill Rite pump. I'm waiting for my Taylor Wings low boy tool box. Once mounted, it will be 3/4 inch below the rail.

I have a f350 long bed with extra wide tool box and I hit my 5er when I was backing into a camp spot. Depends on what you have.
