plus you almost need the extra tongue length when your pulling it behind a dump body because you loose almost 1ft of tongue under the dump body itself which puts the trailer corner 1ft closer to the back corner of the truck body which will lessen how tight you can turn. in most casses its not a problem until you have to turn around in a cove, or back into a tight spot, etc, etc .
