Video Transcript for Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter Review - 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Today in our 2019 Ford F350 Super Duty you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package, part number DM6175.This is what our above-bed rail kit's going to look like when it's installed. What this is going to be used for is to convert our under-bed rail kit or under-bed OEM prep package into an above-bed rail kit. This kit's going to accommodate most 5th wheel hitches that require above-bed rail kits. This rail kit's going to have a 25,000 pound max tow rating. I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your vehicle to make sure the truck can withstand that amount of weight. You always want to go with the lowest number between the vehicle and the rail kit.Each rail is going to have four slots.

You're going to have an inner slot and an outer slot to accommodate different size hitches. Our handles help lock our rail system down to our OEM preparation package. We're going to have a pin with a clip on it, or a pin with a pull ring on it. It's going to lock our handles into place so we don't have accidental disconnect between our rail and our under-bed kit. It's going to have a nice durable black powder coated finish that's going to resist any rust or corrosion, and can be easily removed when not used to give you total bed access.The first thing we need to do to start our installation is we need to remove the four puck covers on the outside.

Use a flathead screwdriver. I'm using a trim panel tool. We're just going to pry up the center. I'm going to go ahead and remove this plastic ring also.The next thing we need to do, we're going to pull the pin, slide our handles outward and set our system into place. We'll line it up with our pucks.

Now we'll fold our handles in. You'll notice they're angled different. Make sure you put the one towards the back of the truck in first. Fold it in like that, and then replace your pin. That's going to lock your handles in place.Now, one thing I do want to point out, if your handle is not moving or if it's locked open and won't close, you can simply take a 9/16 socket, loosen these forward bolts just enough to where this will drop down into place.

Slowly start to tighten them up until you can move your handle. If, once you tighten them up, they will not move or your handle will get stuck open, what you're going to have to do is, there's two washers right underneath this handle. On the back side of this, there's a nut. You take the nut off and you pull the handle off. You'll take one of the washers off and then reinstall everything else.That'll do it for our look at an installation on a Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package, part number DM6175 on our 2019 Ford F350 Super Duty.

I received my Demco DM6175 hitch adapter very quickly. This is going into my 2019 F-450 with factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Prep Package. Quality of construction and finish look very good, and installation was not difficult. The unit weighs over 90#, so you may need a second set of hands to help you drop it in or take it out. The adjustment procedure was very easy and did not take long. All you need is an impact driver, or you can use a socket/ratchet. It took less than 30 minutes to install and adjust. I will now be able to continue using my Reese Classic 14 5th wheel hitch, which is still in great shape, and more than adequate for my towing requirements. This adapter saved me $500-$1,000 compared to purchasing a "puck" style 5th wheel hitch! I will post another update after I tow with it in a few weeks! 711883

  • How to Convert 18K Demco Hijacker to Fit Puck System on a 2019 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4' Bed
    We do have a few options for you to get your 18K Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 to fit the puck system on your 2019 Ford F-250 with the 6-3/4' bed! Your current system uses the side plates # DM6003 which are compatible with the standard base rails like you said. For your Hijacker to work with your puck system you can either swap out those side plates with the part # DM6033, which will give you the same setup as part # DM8550024, or you can just use the Rail Adapter # DM6175.

    For your 20K Pro Series 5th Wheel hitch to work with the factory puck system on your 2019 Ford F-350 you will need an adapter. There are currently two options to choose from and I recommend the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs # RP30156 which will work well with your hitch as they are the same brand and capacity, but you can alternatively use the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000...

    If your 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty with factory 5th wheel prep is a long bed you can used a fixed 5th wheel hitch designed for that factory prep package. The highest-rated 5th wheel we offer for this setup is the 26.5K Reese Elite Series # RP30871. This includes a wiring harness and comes fully-assembled. A review video to illustrate is linked for you. This hitch drops into the factory pucks with no rails needed and it allows you to have a clear bed when you need it. If you prefer the...

    The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # DM6175 weighs approximately 99 lbs. This adapter will fit into the factory puck system on Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks from 2011 - 2018. It will then allow for 5th wheel hitches that have above bed industry standard rails (ISR) to be used with the factory puck system. For a lightweight alternative that has the same function as the above adapter, I recommend using the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # RP30156 which weighs in at around 55 lbs and is...

    A fifth wheel hitch could fit under a Pace Edwards Switchblade tonneau like the part # 311-SWFA18A44 that you referenced but like you said it would have to be adjusted low enough to allow that. Your other concern about the front of the tonneau be raised would be an issue if your trailer overhang was pretty close to the bed rails of the truck. You have to have at least 6 inches between the bedrails and the trailer overhang to not have interference. So if that dimension is tight on your...

    The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch # C16265 will work with an adapter for the puck systems. You simply need to recognize that some adapters will limit the towing capacity. Curt is one of the hitches that uses legs compatible with the different pucks, so I will give you both options. For a Ram, you will use Reese adapter # RP30154 or Demco # DM6099. You can alternatively use the Curt legs # C16021 which will mount directly to your pucks. For a Chevy or GMC, you will use the Curt OEM 5th...

One way is to use the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Packages, part # DM6175. This adapter drops into the factory pucks and then accepts the hitch. Do note this adapter raises the height of the hitch by 2-inches and it adds about 100-lbs to the whole hitch setup. The better way to use this hitch in your new truck...

To get that higher towing capacity, you can use the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Single Jaw - 27,000 lbs # RP30895 which is the only hitch rated for that large a capacity.

  • Will Demco Rail Adapter # DM6175 Fit Reese Elite Pucks on 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500
    The pucks for the Reese Elite systems are in the same exact location as the Ford Factory Rail Kit pucks. This means that the Demco 5th Wheel Adapter for Ford OEM Prep Package # DM6175, which is indeed a bit shorter than the Reese # RP30156, will fit the Reese Elite Under-Bed Rail System on your Silverado 3500 perfectly. This will allow you to use your existing hitch (as long as it attaches to industry-standard rails) while keeping the overall height as low-profile as possible. The correct...

  • Using a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch with Factory Prep Package on a 2918 Ford F-350
    I do have a solution for you but the Curt X5 adapter # 16310 does not work with the factory gooseneck hitch on the 2018 Ford F-350. Instead you can use adapter # RP30156. It is made to fit the factory puck system (instead of the gooseneck hole) and your Patriot 5th wheel hitch will fit the adapter. You could also use Demco adapter # DM6175 for the same purpose. I have linked videos of both adapters for you.

    All of the puck adapters for the factory 5th wheel prep package on the 2017 Ford F-350, including # DM6175, are going to raise the height of the hitch some though the Demco one may be slightly shorter overall. It won't be enough to make much of a difference. There is actually another alternative to getting a different hitch. You may be able to raise the pin box up on its mounting wings. This will lower the front of the trailer. If your hitch is not height adjustable then adjusting the...

    Yes, the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6175 is compatible with the Andersen Ultimate Connection # AM3200 which, to my understanding, is the only Anderson hitch that connects to bed rails. If by chance you have something else then it will work with the Demco adapter as long as it is designed to install on industry standard base rails (which that's what it sounds like you are describing).

The reason is, the bolts you are referencing in the bed of your '19 F-350 are what is keeping your truck bed in place and are not actually part of the puck system, which is why the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6175 won't work.

However, they are in the same configuration as the Ford Factory puck System, so even if the Elite underbed system is used on a Chevy like the # RP30868 is intended for, you would use the 5th wheel hitch compatible with Ford OEM pucks for the perfect fit.
