Recommended Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch For 2012 Ford F-350 With Factory Prep Package


Yes Im purchasing a 2012 F-350 with the gooseneck fifth wheel prep system in it. Im wondering if you could provide me with several fifth wheel hitch options that will fit with this system on my truck? It has all five the four for the pucks and center for the gooseneck. I just bought the truck and I'm trying to order a hitch without the truck being here

There are a couple fifth wheel hitches that will work with your factory prep package on your 2012 F-350 with the short bed.

For a Curt hitch I recommend the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, part # C16530-16020. This system slips into the four pucks in the bed of your truck and can be removed to give you full access to the bed when you are not towing. This hitch gives you 12-inches front to back travel, and has a gross towing capacity of 20,000-lbs.

Another great hitch that will work for you is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider, part # DM8550024. This installs in the pucks as well and it has 14-inches of front to back travel and has an 18,000-lb gross towing capacity.
