Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate Installation - 2008 Ford F-350

Today in our 2008 Ford F-350, we'll be installing the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails, part number 49080. Now a great feature about having this adapter verses an under-bed gooseneck mount, is if you have a lot of trailers that you have to tow that are either gooseneck or fifth wheel, you are able to do that easily just by pulling the pins, removing it, and switching out your adapter to a fifth wheel. Removing it is as simple as pulling our clip, pulling our pin out, doing that on all four corners, and lifting it out. Once we have it back in place, when we're hooking it onto a different trailer or hooking our gooseneck back up, reinsert the pin, reinstall the clip just like that. Now you may notice right here we have our loops that go through here where we can wrap our safety chains through and connect our safety chains from our trailer together. We have one here on the front and one at the back because this adapter, if we need to bring our trailer closer to the cab of our truck, you notice it's offset. We can just flip it 180 degrees and reinstall our clips. Now this Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter has a 25,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating and a 6,250 pound max gross tongue weight rating. Here's what our gooseneck adapter plate comes with. Obviously we have our gooseneck adapter plate here, which comes with a 2-5/16 inch ball. When you flip this around you just want to make sure your ball is not behind your rear axle.

  • Squeaky Gooseneck Hitch Troubleshooting
  • I spoke to my contact and B and W and he told me that their hitches don't usually squeak. If anything they would rattle if something wasn't tightened down all the way. In most cases squeaks come from trailers and not from the hitches. It would be hard to do, but if you can get someone to ride in the bed of your truck while traveling at a low speed in a straight line preferably somewhere like an empty parking lot you could hopefully pin point where the squeak is coming from.

  • Comparing Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for Reese Elite Series Prep Package on a 2011 Ford F-250
  • If you have the factory installed 5th wheel trailer hitch prep package that includes the pop in ball for a gooseneck trailer, it would be best to use it instead of the above bed gooseneck hitch # RP30845. The pop in ball is directly attached to the base rails which are attached to the truck frame which is a more ideal connection than the above bed hitch. But, if you wanted to or needed to use the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP30845, it will fit in the pucks...

  • Best Setup for Towing a Gooseneck Trailer Or Fifth Wheel Trailer with a 2011 Ford F-350 Short Bed

  • Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2009 Ford F-350
  • There is a similar installation kit for the 2009 Ford F-350 Super Duty, but it only allows a 5th wheel trailer hitch to be installed and not an underbed gooseneck hitch like # RP30138-26 for the 2011 Ford Super Duty trucks. If you just want the underbed system for a 5th wheel hitch, you will need the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, # RP30073. This kit is designed to be used only with the Elite Series of 5th wheel hitches like # RP30144 for a short bed or # RP30142 for a long bed....

You would remove the fifth wheel from the four pucks in your truck bed and this goose neck hitch would drop into the same pucks under the bed, and lock in the same way. I have included a link to the instructions that will show you how the gooseneck installs into the Elite Series mounts.

  • Reese Elite Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Super Duty Long Bed
  • The # RP30073 that you referenced is an Elite series rail kit that is confirmed to fit your truck that will work with Elite hitches like the part # # RP30142. For a gooseneck hitch to work with this system you would want the part # RP30845. The Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit # 9465-40 that you referenced is a gooseneck hitch designed to fit older Chevy trucks so it would definitely not work for an Elite fifth wheel hitch in your 2008 Ford truck.

  • Comparing the Curt Spyder and Pro Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for 5th Wheel Rails
  • First, I have included a link to all of the gooseneck hitches we carry that fit in 5th wheel rails. The Curt Spyder, # 16085, has a low profile design and it is heavier than the Pro Series plate style hitch # 49080. Besides that, there really are not a lot of differences. The big advantage that the Pro Series hitch has is that it can be oriented so that the ball is closer to the back of the truck for more clearance when towing with a short bed truck. For me, I like the Pro Series...

  • Curt Gooseneck Adapter for Fifth Wheel Rails on Short Bed Truck
  • I spoke to my contact at Curt and he said that you could turn the gooseneck adapter # 16055 to have the hitch ball at the back. We usually recommend keeping the gooseneck ball forward. Keeping the gooseneck forward keeps the attachment point in front of the rear axle and the safety chain loops behind the hitch ball. You want your chain loops behind the hitch ball in order to best protect the cab of your truck in the even that your trailer comes unhitched.

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation on a 2006 Ford F-250/F-350 Super Duty

The first type attached to the 5th wheel trailer pin box and has a gooseneck coupler at the other end. For this type and a short bed truck, I recommend the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler, # AM3139. This adapter features height adjustability from 11-3/4 inches to 14-3/4 inches. It also has an 8 inch offset to provide more...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing a 36 ft Layton Toy Hauler
  • Anytime you have the choice between a gooseneck hitch and a fifth wheel hitch to pull a fifth wheel trailer, I always recommend a fifth wheel hitch. The fifth wheel hitch will provide more clearance between your truck and trailer, especially when making sharp turns with your truck. The fifth wheel hitch will also provide more stability for the truck and trailer when towing. With a fifth wheel hitch, the king pin on the trailer can attach directly to the hitch. With a gooseneck hitch,...

I cannot imagine (any good reason) why the previous owner would have done this, but stuff happens. You can check the ball position by seeing whether there is a roll pin visible - please refer to the linked photo. If so then the ball is in its storage position. The...

  • To Center Rail Bolts have to be Installed to Reach Max Capacity for Curt Gooseneck Hitch Plate

However since the Curt gooseneck plate mounts to the inner-most set of slots on the rails the center bolts would help with stability, especially if and when the trailer coupler pulls up on the ball while traveling. Many 5th wheel rail kits use the center bolts already but if yours does not then I do recommend it. Another option is to use a gooseneck plate...
