ram 3500 dually

Hi,
Can an escape 5.0 be towed with an 8' bed without clearance issues on turning? It would have a B&W companion hitch. We're thinking of upgrading our setup and might need to tow the escape for a short time with a larger truck.

I don't understand the concern about turning, can you clarify? I have an 8' bed on my F150 with the B&W Patriot, nothing comes close to hitting. Measurement from the tailgate end of the bed to the center of the hitch is pretty standard irregardless of the truck manufacturer.

That is the info I was looking for. I just like to make sure of these things, thanks.
