5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2012 Ford F-250 King Ranch w/Trailer Prep Package


I have a 2012 f250 KR with 6.5foot box. It came with the fifth wheel/gooseneck prep package. We plan to purchased a Sierra 366fl with up to 15k lbs loaded weight. Do I need slider hitch? If so what kind? What about an auto slider?

Expert Reply:

Since your 2012 Ford F-250 has the 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package, you have some hitch options. To use the prep package, you will need to use Reese Elite Series slider, # RP30144. This is the Reese top of the line hitch and it has an 18K capacity. It has 10 inches of travel. I have included a link to the installation details for you.

Another option is to use an adapter, # RP30156, and then use 16K hitch, # RP30075, or 20K hitch, # RP30083. These 2 hitches offer 12 inches of travel. All 3 hitches listed above are manual sliders. We do not offer an automatic slider.
