Short box dimensions are 81.9" long at the floor and 50.5" between wheel houses.

Will not fit in a box, Mostly due to the width. larger quads barely fit between the arches.

There are racks you can get for side by sides that allow it to be done. (parks on top of the box instead of in it)

It really depends on what machine you have. True 60" machines, or the 50" trail machines will fit in a SB with the tailgate down. To tow a travel trailer with the tailgate down, the only solution for that is to extend the draw bar by either a tailgate support with integrated receiver, or get a Curt Manuf. 14" setback shank for your weight distribution head. Take measurements three times to ensure you won't have any pinch points.

 

Alternatively, you can get the rack from Marlon. They are US/CAN legal for height restrictions. I haven't used one, nor do I know anyone personally who has one. I have been looking at them though.

 

Or...you can switch the order to a LB truck and put a deck on it. Toy-Up and Truck Boss makes 9' decks, and combined the 14" shank, there should be ample room.

 

I've attached a photo of our old F550 cab n chassis with a 9' fleet deck on it and 60" machine. However, that exact machine did fit in a 2011 F350 SB Dually box, squeezing it between the rails and driving over the wheel tubs.

 

As you can see, the 60" machine used all of the 9' fleet deck space, so with a SB, you are limited to the cab-over racks from Marlon or Toy-Up, or hope the shank is enough to clear the trailer jack on the tailgate.
