Yes, your 2017 Ford F-350 Diesel has a GVWR of 9,900-11,500 lbs and a GAWR at the rear of 6340 lbs and 5250 lbs at the front. The GCWR is 28700 lbs, so with your 5th wheel trailer tow capacity between 20,600 and 21,500 lbs, you are well within your ratings to tow a Montana High Country 5th Wheel.

For a 5th wheel hitch if you have the factory prep package, I recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16545-16017.

If you don't have the factory puck system, I recommend the Curt Q24 # C16245 along with the # C16428-204 Custom 5th Wheel Rail Kit.

You may also be interested in the 7 way connection for the bed of your truck # C56000. This gives you the easier access for your wiring connection.
