5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Minimal Bed Contact for 2017 Ford Super Duty with Factory Prep Package


Want to install Anderson rail mount in 2017 super duty with factory 5th wheel prep package. Avoiding hitch that attaches via gooseneck ball for fear of hitch riding on aluminum bed. What rail kit can I use? Thanks

On models that have the factory 5th wheel prep package with the 4 pucks you would not be able to use the Anderson adapter # AM3200 because you would have to use the picture frame adapter # RP30156. Since both it and the Anderson are adapters it is not advisable to use an adapter in an adapter.

I recommend using a hitch that will mount directly into the puck system in your 2017 Ford Super Duty because it will have minimal contact with the truck bed and using the proper hitch for the trailer is recommended when possible to avoid using adapters.

If your truck is a short bed you can use a hitch such as # C16530-16020 or # DM8550024. Or for a long bed I recommend the always popular B&W Companion # BWRVK3300. I have linked videos of all of these hitches for you.
