F250 shortbed --need fuel x-fer/tool box

I have a 2010 F250 shortbed with BW gooseneck hitch.
I just bought a gooseneck trailer for it and this is my first short bed truck with gooseneck.

I am wanting to get a toolbox/fuel combo but don't know if it will fit well/clear the gooseneck when I turn. Seems awfully tight. I've looked at several different models but not sure where to begin.

Does anyone have a shortbed f250 with a fuel transfer/toolbox combo and you also use a gooseneck?

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't see why it wouldn't.

What trailer did you buy ?

From the pics, there isn't much room for a combo box.
Attached pic of PJ. Not done with sides yet but so far, they work.

Maybe a slim combo? I know they make them.

I like your sides. I'm still waiting to order mine hopefully here soon

Those sides came 4' across. I have been cutting them and the piece I cut is being bolted to the backside of that lower half to reinforce. My old trailer had 3' foot sides and was perfect height for hand loading and machine loading. I plan to haul the toolcat with this trailer. It only dumps 7'. Eventually I will get a small skid to haul but the Toolcat is already here for the ranch.

I was hoping to keep bed width when hitch not in use.
