Be careful not to confuse a Gooseneck with a Fith-wheel...A
5th wheel does pretty much need a dedicated vehicle due to the
large hitch platform in the bed. The latest Gooseneck hitches
have a ball that can be removed, thus giving you full use of
the bed. Hey Keith, have you seen those "Toy Haulers" that are
trailers with 1/2 living area & 1/2 car storage? Might be your
solution.... Unhook it and use the truck for those runs into
town for more Diet Coke.
