Thanks for all the great advice, not sure on king pin length. I will take a look at the trailer the next next I see my parents. I have also been considering a 18-20' bumper pull. Just not sure on what I want to get. We bought a pop-up and have had it a couple years and looking to upgrade.

Get the fifth wheel! I'm on my second one and they pull like a dream. A couple times this year the wind was about 20-30mph on the day we would have to pull home. I was a little nervous because it was a cross wind but it held the road great. When a strong gust would come it would just twitch a little ... no big deal at all. I also do not have a slider and I have no problems ... just keep an eye on the front of the trailer/back of the cab and you'll be fine. My old truck had a slider and I never had to use it.
