    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.
