Lets see some pictures of short bed trucks and TH's

There's threads about showing off your setups with some seriously outstanding rig's and trailers, but I'd love to see pictures of all you folks with short bed trucks and toy haulers. Making this combination work is more of an effort than some give credit for so anyone that has this kind of setup.....post up some pictures of how well you make it work. While researching this subject for quite some time now, as I look for a TH that works for my family, I've run across enough people who have tried to tell me that a short bed/toy hauler combination just wont work.

We have a 35' toy hauler with a short bed mega cab truck I use the Pull Rite super slide hitch. As the truck turns the hitch slides back to give more room to clear the cab. I have had it at about 70 degrees backing and no problem. There is nothing to do but drive with the hitch. There are a few out there you have to unlatch to back up. The only draw back is the angle you connect and disconnect at (15 degrees). We have had this set up for 5 years and have not had any trouble keep the hitch lubed and don't worry about it.

Mine is a short bed and an LE3305. I have a Hidden Hitch Signature Series 18k 5th wheel slider hitch. I have yet to use the slider in the 5-1/2 years I have owned this setup. I have been in some really tight spots too. I have to admit that I did hit my cab once. Put a small dent in it. I blame that on my spotter. I told him to make sure to watch that side and he said I was good. This was on my way out of the tight camp spot. Did not have a problem getting in.

Nice OCOutdoors. I'm glad to see how your truck sits too because I've hooked up to some 38'-40' trailers and my truck sits the same as yours. It looks like you have a leveling kit as so do I, and the kit makes a truck look like its sagging when its really not.

Actually in the first picture I have a 6.5" lift in the front with coils and spacers. The second pic and how it sits now is more like a 5" lift with coilovers. Trailer has not been lifted. Tows straight as an arrow.

This was a photo hitched up and leaving the dealership.
I was using a manual slider, Reese 16k

Not Cheap
Never used an auto slider, hope it works out
