1) Tow capacity of your truck. In 5th wheel, both the pin weight and the trailer weight.

2) does a Harley fit? I assume most toy haulers will handle an 800 lb Harley.

3) After that, it's a function of floorplan and price range.. that should narrow your choices.

A TH should handle that no problem. I had a 16 foot TH and actually got a full dresser, fatboy and softail all in there. The key is to have the heavy duty rings installed.....not the lesser ones that are usually installed.

Good luck and welcome!
