Is there an Adapter Kit for 2011 Ford F-350 Factory Tow Prep Package for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches


If I purchase this truck with the under bed elite mount, I understand that a company makes an adapter kit to use the normal rail kit so I can continue to use my air ride hitch with this new factory installed mount. Is this available? If so, who makes this kit and the cost? Thanks

On the 2011 Ford F-350 or any model with the factory towing prep package, you will only be able to use the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30142 or # RP30871. For a slider, you would use # RP30144.

The only other option is to use a Signature Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and the Reese Signature Series Hitch Adapter, # RP58419. I have included a link to an FAQ article on the 2011 Ford trucks with the towing prep package.

If you do not get the factory towing prep package installed, you will have other options. I have included a link below to the available 5th wheel hitches and installation kits for 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty pickups. Just select either a 6-1/2 foot bed or 8 foot bed to see the options. Depending on which way you decided to go, the cost will be different. Cost for each product can be found on the product page.
