ironically taylor ( branch manager as far as i know) called me today to let me know the engineers at genesis decided on 30 gal black tank that will fit. like i told them and they already know..... the tank can be 4" deeper as well as up to 2m longer but easily twice as wide. apperantly they finally figured that out. after what i have experienced, i'll believe it when i have the tank.

Well I am glad they reached out to you with an option before you had to take further measures. We will take ours on the road for the first time Tuesday and are going to try the Reese Goosebox that is currently on the trailer. We are only camping two nights and will get a chance to see if everything works then.

Yes that clearance issue I am sure would bite me in the butt at some point. Also I think it looks like a pain hooking it up and taking it off. I watched the previous owner unhook at the house and it was two guys doing it and it seemed like a lot but I don't think I need any help unhooking.

I will say so far just reading the instructions for the bed rail installation and watching the video is night a day. The video sure makes it seem so much easier. I guess we will find out about it today.

I'm also looking for a hitch for a short bed Ram 3500, so it needs to be a slider. I want to try to keep it simple if possible, so not interested in air ride hitches.

My Momentum Toy Hauler has a GVWR of 16,888 lbs.

I've been looking at:

Pullrite 18K SuperGlide $2225
Pullrite 24K SuperGlide ?
Demco 21K AutoSlide $2200
Curt Q20 Slider $1194
Curt Q24 Slider $1331

Any recommendation on those hitches, or others?

2020 Lance 825
2021 Grand Design Momentum 350G
