5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package


Looking to install kingpin in factory Ford Reese hitch prep package

Expert Reply:

The king pin is the large pin on the trailer. For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit the 2012 Ford F-250 with the factory prep package you have a couple of options. First, the prep package was designed for use with the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches.

If you have a long bed truck use # RP30142 with an 18k capacity or # RP30871 with a 26.5k capacity. If you have a short bed then you will need a slider, # RP30144, with an 18k capacity.

The other option is to use an adapter, # RP30156, and a different fixed 5th wheel hitch or slider hitch. This adapter will accept a hitch that fits in Reese above the bed rails.

If you want to add the gooseneck hitch then you would need # RP30138. I have included a few helpful links for you to view.
