12685 LBs Fifth wheel trailer weight about 2500lbs tongue weight. It would be nice to do the whole 14000Lbs.
I have my reserve in already on the Tri motor waiting on specs to see if I can replace my F350 with the Cyber truck or not.

That’s within TriCT specs.

I’d want more than ½ ton F-150 axel bearing. So its going to be a wait and see how Tesla does axel bearings on the CT. Full floating is a big ask.

the payload and towing capacity of the trimotor is suitable. i'm assuming the ct is going to be heavy which helps control heavy trailers. 4 wheel turning helps sway. is the only perceived limitation the sail shape of the bed? maybe you can just lower the truck a bit and have the fifth wheel hitch mounted on a spacer block to raise the trailer above the sail?

This system adds an extra axle to ease fifth-wheel towing.

The other way that I’ve towed big trailers with fifth wheel instead of using a “jeep” as shown in the video.

Invert the fifth wheel. Instead of the 5th wheel braced inside the bed of the truck it is inverted mounted onto the trailer. That uses a bed mounted “pin” which cleans up any clearance problems in-bed. You are able to custom fit the trailer to the Cybertruck limitations whatever those turn out to be.
