    flatbed, is it a possibility

    Hi all we are about a month out for picking up our Cyclone 4006. (newbie 5th wheel family)

    I'm looking at tow vehicles and one of them is a flatbed (not a hauler).
    I'm interested if anyone is towing a Cyclone or similar with a flatbed configuration.
    Will the height of the deck be too tall for pulling this trailer?

    I have another thread I started that was asking for clearance / measurements (here).
    I'm trying to figure out if I should skip this rig and keep looking.

    Thanks

    Just for your info. I saw this hitch on a flatbed up in Idaho a while back

    I towed with a flatbed some years back and had no problem. Check to make sure the bed is a standard width and length, to position your fifth wheel correctly over the axle you will need clearance of the bed corners when turning.

    Hey akfoote,
    I bought a ram 4500 C&C to pull our RW427. Ordered a bed, but asked a lot of questions first. My B&W companion I had was 16.5" tall, the framing of the bed is 6" and the B&W flatbed hitch is 10.5", which in everyone's opinion is equal. I'm getting my bed put on tomorrow and had already ordered the flatbed base, so I'll find out Saturday if things work out, as the flatbed base is not adjustable like the companion was. I'll let you know what I find out

    akfoote,
    I put the flatbed hitch together today and mounted it in the B&W turnover hitch. I hooked up and moved to a very level area. I was worried about being too high, but everything appears to be perfect! If the flatbed is what you like, I'd go for it, just be aware that the hitch shown in previous post is specific to the B&W "system", which is what I have. If you have a different set up, do some more investigation. As far as mine, it is going to work out great. Good luck to you.
