For your 2017 Ford F-350 with factory 5th wheel prep, I recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16545-16020 is you have a 6-3/4 foot bed. This sliding hitch will allow you the turning clearance needed for a short bed truck to avoid contact between the trailer and the cab of your truck.

If you have a 8 foot bed, then I recommend the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16039.

For your wiring, you may want to consider adding the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector - 10' Long # C56000 to put a second working 7-way trailer connection in the bed of your truck for easy access and connection.

In case you were looking for a gooseneck ball based on your question, I recommend the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit for Chevy, Ford, GM, and Nissan Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # C60692. This will work seamlessly with your factory rail kit.
