My '88 Moritz 18' gooseneck stock trailer (bought used) is something
I've never seen elsewhere:  a so-called "half goose."  The gooseneck
is only about 4' deep, with the actual hitch extending forward from there.

There's no danger of it hitting the cab short of a full jackknife, and there
isn't that "tower hovering over your head" feeling that there is with
a full goose.  I've got a regular cab (not extended) with a full 8' bed.

Not that you'd want to replace your trailer just to accommodate the
new truck...
