Yellowstone Debuts Fiver for Short-bed Trucks

Yellowstone's SB-1500 series Canyon Trail fifth-wheel

Nappanee. Ind.-based Yellowstone RV has introduced the SB-1500 series in its Canyon Trail fifth-wheel lineup that tows, turns and maneuvers perfectly when hitched to today’s extra short-bed pickup trucks – without the need for an expensive slider hitch.

According to a press release, the Canyon Trail XLT SB-1500 offers three highly functional floorplans that use a specially designed front end for excellent turning clearance with pickup truck cargo beds as short as 5½ feet.

Yellowstone said that while the new breed of Crew Cab pickups feature luxurious passenger space, the shorter dimensions of their beds make simple fifth-wheel maneuvers and turns impossible. That’s where the SB-1500 series fits in, with “dimensions and geometry that take the shorter turning radius and restricted clearance of the extra short bed trucks into account.”

The company added that “there’s no shortage of luxury in the SB-1500s.” Like all Canyon Trail fifth-wheels, the new series features premium furnishings, residential-style kitchens, multiple slideouts, state-of-the-art entertainment options, generous lighting and enormous storage spaces. Designs and specifications have been refined with the input of seasoned RVers for easy carefree camping.

Canyon Trail also features the Extreme Weather Protection Package, an advanced combination of foam, fiberglass, urethane, radiant film technology, ventilation and vapor control, providing R38 values in the ceiling, R32 in the floor, and R14 in all four walls. A fully enclosed and heated basement and R38 insulated holding tank compartment contribute to the true four-season capabilities of the Canyon Trail.

The new Aztec Luxury Edition Package, available on all Canyon Trail products including the SB-1500 models, adds a group of sophisticated appearance and performance enhancements particularly popular with Canyon Trail customers.

In the late ’90s we bought a Dodge Ram extended cab short bed and towed a 25′ Shadow Cruiser 5W to east coast campgrounds for a few years. The front overhang of the Shadow Cruiser was “cut off” on both sides to enable sharp turns, although not 90 degrees (so what!). It’s about time that someone (Yellowstone) resurrected the idea. Good luck!
