I have a newer Chevy truck - short box crew cab with Duramax. It has a 6" lift and 35" tires. Some dealers have told me that I can't pull a 5th wheel Toyhauler, that I'm just going to be limited to bumper pulls. Others have said no problems, just flip the axles and it will still pull great and it will be plenty high. Do any of you have experience towing a 5th wheel TH with a lifted truck that can share your advice? I'm also looking into Gooseneck horse trailer type trailers that I could use to haul 4 wheelers as they supposedly have a little more room for adjustment on their hitch, and they're not so tall overall like a regular 5th wheel TH. Either one should be alot easier to get around than my big long bumper pull (which measures around 32'-33'from tongue to bumper).
