Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2017 Ford F-250 With Factory Rail Kit For 13,000 lb Trailer


I have a new F250 Super Duty 4x4 with the factory 5th wheel hook up short bed. I have a new 13,000 pound 5th wheel. Can you please recommend a hitch for this application.

Expert Reply:

For your 2017 Ford F-250 with factory rail kit, I recommend the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16515-16020. This will use the factory puck system and will give you a sliding hitch that will allow enough clearance for your 5th wheel and your cab. This has a fast, easy installation and a 2 pin head removal to make it easy for one person to install and remove the hitch.

I recommend using the Curt 10" Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate # 16721, to allow free movement without the grease mess. I also recommend the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector - 7' Long # C56070 to give you an easily accessible wiring connection for your 5th wheel in the bed of your truck.
