Bed clearance

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!! Glad to be here. I am thinking of buying a truck with a 9'6" flatbed on it. I was wondering if anyone is using a flatbed to pull a 5th wheel? Is clearance going to be an issue with the 9'6" bed during the swing? I did measure from the ball to the end of the bed and it's 5 foot. Add 3" if you count the bumper hitch.

My bed I think, may have to pull tape, is 9'4". It is dovetailed and notched corners, 45 degrees. I also have a trough in the middle. I am using an EZ Loader Air Hitch. It is 12.5" tall. My Teton rides level. I have good clearance. On a Standard flat bed with no trough I could not have leveled camper. If your bed is standard flat with a square opening or door in middle with ball you will have to modify it for a hitch. Beds are higher than stock beds is problem. Most likely 7" taller. could be more.
