asked by: DONALD M
There is a mounting adapter available you can use to mount your existing fifth-wheel hitch in your 2011 Ford F-350 with underbed hitch prep package. Checkout the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter, part # RP30156 . This adapter will allow you to mount non-elite series fifth-wheel hitches to hitch prep option in your Ford F-350.
Before this adapter was available, the Elite Series hitches were the only hitches that would work with the hitch prep option from Ford. The reason is because the hitch prep option has pucks that are designed to allow only Elite Series hitches be installed onto them.
I have attached a FAQ page below on the 2011 Ford Hitch Prep packages.
