Awesome setup. Is it a 2013? Someone tried ordering a triple slide, but due to a production issue, the triple slide isn’t currently available on whatever model that was.

So if you’re expecting a triple-slide, double check that they’re available.

And everybody is going to want to know what you’ll be towing it with.

Yes, it is a triple slide, it is on the lot, just working out the details. I will be towing with a 2010 F-150 4x4 with the 4.6, will this do?

Welcome to the forum Steve.

Unfortunately the 28SGS won't be a good match for your truck... it's simply too much trailer!
Just the combined weight of a 5th wheel hitch (150-200+/- lbs) and unloaded pin weight (1410 lbs)
will probably be over your truck's payload limits... and that's with an empty trailer!
Members have explained in detail on your other thread. http://keystonerv.org/forums/showthread.php?t=6461
