Ask the Experts about this Husky Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit for a 2010 Ford F-250 and Valley Husky 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    The Husky hitches that were under the Valley umbrella are not the same as the current Husky brand like for installation kit # HT31412-686 that you have referenced. We do not recommend mixing brackets from one company with rails from another because they have not been tested together and the capacity will be unknown. The best and safest thing to do would be to get a complete kit with parts all from the same manufacturer. I recommend the Curt custom installation kit # C16448-104. It is...

  • What Parts are Needed to Install Husky 15K Fifth Wheel in a 2013 F-250 With 5th Wheel Prep Package
    In order to mount your 15K Husky 5th wheel to your 2013 Ford F-250 with the 5th wheel prep package you will need Reese Elite Adapter # RP30156 providing the following measurement align. If your pin center to pin center measurement is either 20-5/8 or 29 inches and your front to back measures 21-15/16 inches then this adapter will work. The measurements are noted in the picture. My technical contact at Husky let me know that they have not manufactured 15K fifth wheels in quite a while...

  • Will Husky 5th Wheel Head Fit PullRite Super 18K Standard Above-Bed Rails
    PullRite Super 5th Wheel bed rails are designed expressly for use with their 5th wheel heads; they are not usable with your 1999 Husky 5th wheel hitch head. You will need to use a compatible set of above-bed base rails, such as the Husky # HT31412-686. This custom-fit kit includes base rails, under-bed brackets and all required hardware for installation in your 2005 Ford F350 Super Duty long bed. Since it uses only 4 bolts to mount the rails it will provide for a faster installation...

  • Husky 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F350 8 ft Bed
    The Husky Hitch part # 7054 that you referenced has been discontinued, but there are still install kits available that would allow you to install this hitch in the bed of your 2006 Ford F350. For that you would want the Husky Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # HT31412-686. This is a custom install rail kit that would work great for your vehicle and hitch.

  • Will RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch Fit the Rails in a Husky Installation Kit
    The RBW Lil' Rocker fits in industry standard rails. The rails included with Husky installation kit # HT31412-686 are indeed industry standard rails so the hitch will fit. I have included a picture showing the hitch mounting spacing for industry standard rails for you.

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2009 Ford F-450 with B&W Gooseneck Hitch
    The B&W hitch has an installation kit that uses the same space that a 5th wheel installation kit would use. Basically you can have one or the other but not both. Since you already have the B&W hitch you can use a Companion hitch # BWRVK3500 for a long bed or # BWRVK3400 for a short bed. Or you could use the Curt X5 adapter, # 16310, as long as your RBW Lil' Rocker mounts in slots spaced 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches apart on center side to side and 22 inches on center front to back.

  • Compatibility of Husky Silver Series # HT31326-31314 Hitch with 5th Wheel with 14.5K GVWR
    If the 5th wheel camper you're purchasing has a 14.5K GVWR, it means that the maximum allowable weight of the trailer cannot exceed 14,500 lbs. This is well below the 16,000 lb capacity of the Husky # HT31326-31314 Silver Series 5th Wheel hitch, so you can use it with no worries. There's really no 'rule of thumb', just be sure that the capacity of the hitch exceeds the GVWR of the 5th wheel. The # HT31412-686 is a custom install bracket kit that requires some drilling into the truck...

  • Husky Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    I checked with Husky Towing and the difference between the two fifth wheel kits part # HT31408-686 and # HT31412-686 is the vehicles the two are designed to fit. There is a bit of overlap between what the two kits will fit though and I think that is where the confusion comes from. The 31408 fits 08-16 Ford F-250/350/450 Super Duty, whereas the 31412 fits 05-16 Ford F-350 plus 08-09 F-450 Super Duty (except 11-16 Diesel Pickups). Since you have an F-250 you would then want the part...

  • Installation Time For Husky 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch On 2005 Ford F-350
    If you have an 8 ft bed in your 2005 Ford F-350 the Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch, part # HT31313-31314 may work well for you. Actually installing the hitch does not require much time at all. It is the installation of the rails that will take time to install. For that reason I recommend the custom installation kit, part # HT31412-686. Using the custom kit will reduce the install time by about half. The installation time will depend on the shop or area used to do the install as well as the...

  • Husky 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit for 2007 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4-Foot Bed
    For a custom-fit Husky 5th wheel hitch install kit for your 2007 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4-foot bed you can use part # HT31407-686. This custom bracket kit will take less time to install than a universal kit and it includes the industry-standard base rails needed to mount your 16K Husky hitch. If you prefer a lower-cost universal kit you can use part # HT31412-686. This will require more drilling and take more time than the custom kit noted above.

  • High Capacity Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Ford F-350
    The low profile fifth wheel hitch part # RP30054 is designed shorter to fit the taller truck bed heights of flat bed trucks. Since you have a standard bed 2004 Ford 250 this would not be the correct hitch for you. For a similar capacity hitch that is standard in height we have the Husky fifth wheel hitch part # HT31318-31325 which has a 26k capacity. For rails to install this hitch in your truck bed you would want a custom kit that would minimize drilling and install time. For that you...

  • Comparing Husky 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kits for a 2006 Ford F-250/F-350
    Husky 5th wheel installation kit # HT31412-686 requires some drilling into the frame of your 2006 Ford Super Duty whereas kit # HT31407-686 does not. Each kit uses different brackets that attach to the truck frame. I recommend going with a kit that does not require drilling, such as # HT31407-686, because it takes less time to install.
