I have a 2012 f350 SRW with 8foot box. It came with the fifth wheel/gooseneck prep package. We just purchased a toy hauler with up to 19K lbs loaded weight. Do I need to purchase both the hitch and the under rail system or just the elite series hitch?
asked by: Mike G
If you have the fifth wheel prep package you should already have the under rail system installed on your vehicle and all you would need is a hitch to install in that system. Since you have a toy hauler that weighs 19,000 lbs you will want a Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30143. This hitch has a capacity of 25,000 lbs and would have plenty of capacity for your setup.
You should have 4 slightly raised pucks in the bed of your truck. These will be what the # RP30143 will install into. Check out the picture I attached that shows these pucks.
I attached installation instructions for the # RP30143 for you to check out as well as an FAQ on the fifth wheel/gooseneck prep package that would be in your vehicle.
