None of the Alfa See Ya! 5th wheelers look like they have an extended hitch pin box. Can these be towed with a short bed F-350?

I tow a 5er with a short bed. It is easy to do and well within my comfort zone.
If and when I trade my '01 F350 in, I will probably get a long bed, but I am not in any hurry to do it. I might continue with my SB for years.
I personally would be more inclined to examine the pin weight of a loaded Alfa with respect to the TV's ratings. Because I need SRW this might be more of a concern for me then someone who has DRW.
But the SB does not offer much of an inconvenience at all with my 5er. I have a manual slider, there are some nifty auto sliders available.

You can tow anything you want; however, that truck is NOT rated to tow that type of load. The hitch weight of a SeeYa is way more than what your truck can legally handle. What you really need to tow a SeeYa is a 350/3500 or larger. The GVWR for most is over 14k with a hitch weight of over 2200lbs. If you did put that on your turck then you would not even be able to get into it do to being over weight.
Just my .02 worth

Like noted above, trailes of that sized realy should have a 1 ton dually to handel the pin weight. As far as I know, all of the 1 ton duallies have an 8' box.
