On a short bed I would use a slider for peace of mind. I think it backs better when you move the pivot point back. Might be in my head. After a couple of skid marks on my truck cab I got an 8ft bed.
As far as payload goes weigh your truck and check against the combined rear tire capacity. That is the main buzz kill on a SRW. Just not many in Daytona during bike week would agree . Lots of 20k 44 footers down there being tugged by SRWs problem free. In my travels Ive seen 50:1 trailer tire / TV tire problems on the roadside.

Uh-oh now I dun it. Added the 2nd most controversial subject beyond the 3/4 ton "payload" (the first most controversial subject)
Looks like the GVWR police are alive and well in here. I second the Anderson and stay away from the sliders. Way to much weight and pain in the rear. Get your rig and let ER rip tator chip!

Can you share a link to that post or re-post the letter from Keystone. It seems like such a warranty void would violate Magnuson-Moss and as Thor (Keystone) is the LARGEST RV provider, Anderson might want to weigh in... Anderson + Thor - that's a lot of un-warrantied RVs if it's true.

NM, I missed it:

Anderson does say they offer a high dollar amount to cover frame damage in the event that Lippert denies warranty claim based on the use of their hitch.
