I own a 2005 Ford F150 Super Crew Cab. I saw an F150 at a trail ride last weekend with an all steel gooseneck (I think it was a 2-3 horse slant with small weekender/ dressing room), owner said she didn't have rear axel air bags for many years and the truck hauled the trailer well.
I believe mine could do the same and really open my options for trailers, my concern is do I have the clearance for it? Having the Super Crew cab, my bed is only 6'. Anyone have experience with goosenecks and short beds? I was told there is an adapter I can add to the gooseneck hookup in the bed to shift the ball further back several inches??
