That's my opinion

It also depends on the weight. Long is better for heavy, as is a dually.

I agree with you. But let's face it, the SB i.e. shorter wheelbase truck is easier to park thank the long bed version. Many good arguments for either and most who have an opinion have already made their decision. We recently attended the Reno Air Races and camped at St Michaels Church. We had to do a three point with the Cougar hooked up to get out of their parking lot. I guess any practice you can get is good practice

I bought a 2016 GMC 3500 Short bed. I pull a 36 fifth wheel using an Anderson hitch. Other than Putting my new fifth wheel through the back window of my new truck on my first trip Im happy with the short bed.
I just dont turn as tight any more.

I bought a Pullrite 18k for my F350 shortbox and never have to worry about touching the cab or forgetting to pull a pin to let the hitch slide back in tight turns. Its more expensive but works perfect.
