We are looking at the Rockwood 8280SS 5th wheel, GVW of 7900 lbs., pin weight of 898 lbs., trailer dry weight of 6366 lbs. I intend to go with a diesel. The CMS looks good, either with the side boxes or with the front box. I carry a large plastic box in my current truck under a cap that holds my tool box 12 lbs. a portable air compressor, spare parts maybe 30 lbs in all. I don't want both boxes, its either/or. I am concerned about the weight as well. As I stated I want a retractable rolling tonneau cover on the truck for security when not towing and also when towing to cover the 5th wheel hitch after setup in camp. I am looking for anyone who has this setup. Thanks for your reply, I guess that no one on this board has this type of setup. Ford also has a new CMS in their trucks, and Dodge is rumoured to be getting one as well.
