Available 5th Wheel Slider Hitches to Fit Factory Rail Kit in 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed


Do you carry the Anderson 5th wheel hitch that fits a 2016 ram with puck system or fits on the goose neck ball. And if so how much. Thank you.

All 5th wheel hitches we have confirmed to fit your 2016 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed and with Factory Rail kit (the puck system) are shown on the linked page. None of these is an Andersen product but we do have excellent options from B&W, Demco and others that provide the sliding type hitch you need for proper turning clearance in your short-bed truck.

The advantage of the factory rail/puck system is primarily that it allows you to have a completely clear bed for times when you're not towing but instead need to haul cargo.

The 20K-rated B&W Companion Slider hitch # BWRVK3670 mounts directly in the pucks without any other parts needed. The B&W is arguably among the finest 5th wheels on the market. B&W does their own in-house design and fabrication and this hitch includes features like a round tube slider for less binding and 1-inch-thick jaws for excellent king pin contact.

Other hitches, such as the Reese, Curt and Pro Series models like # RP30051 cannot directly mount in the pucks; these require an adapter such as # RP30154 which adds cost, complexity and several inches of height to the set-up.
