Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2018 Ford F-350


Can I add a fifth wheel if I do not have the prep package from the factory


Expert Reply:

You certainly can. You just need a fifth wheel hitch and an install bracket kit.

I recommend the B&W kit and Companion hitch. The insall kit for your for your 2018 Ford F-350 is part # BWGNRK1116-5W if your truck is 2-wheel drive or part # BWGNRK1117-5W if it's 4-wheel drive. I like the B&W kits because the fifth wheel install kit is actually a gooseneck hitch in case you ever need it in the future. It's also an underbed kit so you don't have the fifth wheel rails taking up space.

Then for the hitch that fits into the B&W kit use the fixed Companion, part # BWRVK3500-5W, if you have a long bed truck. If it's a short bed then you need a sliding hitch for turning clearance so instead use part # BWRVK3400-5W.

I've linked videos on each hitch and install kit for you. Also, if you'd like to add a 7-way wiring connector in the truck's bed use # 20110-010 which is designed specifically for the aluminum truck beds.
