Now I get it.
The Reese goosebox I have is completely different. But I got it because of the air bag feature. In close quarters I need to lift the trailer as high as I can get it to clear the side rails of my roll top cover.

And since I can't see the bed it is extremely difficult to hook up under any condition that is not perfectly level truck and trailer.

And I get a lot of practice doing that, one side of my truck is off the driveway (5-6" lower) when hooking up the trailer.

I just wanted to follow up on this thread, not antagonize anyone, nor create conflict. I just completed a 5000 mile trip with my truck and trailer through 9 states, which took me up and down many mountains, including 8 and 10 percent grades. The first was Palo Duro Canyon, south of Amarillo, TX; 10% winding road to the bottom of the canyon floor, and the same road back up. Others included the roads from Flagstaff around the Grand Canyon, South Rim, east side, and North Rim/Jacobs Lake; also long, winding climbs. Then the Bryce Canyon area and finally over into Wyoming and Northern Colorado; then back to Texas. The truck has excellent gauges and the readings for TFT, ECT, EOT stayed ~200 degrees. Pulling the steep long grades resulted in an effortless ~40 mph and <1000 EGT. Disc Braking/Engine Braking was also excellent. Overall, my idiot trip meter posted 10.3 for the entire trip, but I would guess it would be closer to 9.5. I am well pleased with the performance of this truck and just wanted to follow up on my previous statements. Properly equipped SRW trucks, especially the 2017 Ford F350, are fully capable of towing the MS. Don't take my word for it, go to Ford's web site and check the specs. Although mine is a '12, I have equipped it better than the '17.

Just in case anyone's interested, my truck was one of the trucks that was high lighted in DieselTech magazine this month. You'll know it when you see it.

Thanks, port. I just saw the request for a link. I got my copy of the magazine a few days ago.

Yes, she is a fine truck. I went on Ford’s site, built what I wanted, then did a search for it within 300 miles around my home. I found it in Houston, about 250 miles from me. Thank you, cummins
