I know there are other brands that are starting to use the factory prep, but they attach at one point, the gooseneck, right. Isn't it always better to have more points of attachement?
I have a 2011 F-250 short bed. I went with an automatic slide in the event that I forgot that I had to manually extend the slide in sharp turns.
If your good at remembering things then you may not have a problem with a manual slide.
All 5th wheel hitches, no matter what brand, are attached to the truck in four places. A gooseneck hitch has nothing to do with a 5th wheel. Usually, campers will have 5th wheels and horse trailers will have goosenecks. So, they just use the ball mounted in the center of the bed.
Good luck on your decision.
