Truck Too Tall To Tow 5th Wheel?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! 


Haven't posted or have been remotely involved recently and I’m sorry. 


I have a 2007 F250 4x4 lifted 10” on 37s. I am in the market for a toy hauler. 


The receiver height from the ground is 26.5”. Not sure how much of a drop I should do if I go with a bumper pull toy hauler. Maybe one of you all could guide me in the right direction, my belief is 8” drop? Also, if I do a receiver drop adapter, will it be remotely strong enough to hold a 7000-8000# trailer after I use the weight distribution hitch set up?


Is my truck too tall to tow a 5th wheel? I’ve heard conflicting stories, and I figured you hooligans have done this and can guide me as well. 


Either way, if you tell me I’m stupid and can back it up, I will be appreciative. 


Thank you!! And it’s almost dune time! (I’ve been saying that since the weekend after Easter) lol

No the size you mentioned is ok no need to worry about it, I am also a towing truck driver working in Rite way towing as a Car towing services, driver. so this size is ok you tow with 5th wheel. and there is a videos on you tube you can watch them to clarify.
