5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2010 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed


What kind of 5th wheel hitch will fit a 2010 F-150 with a 5 foot 6 inch box and what instalation package is needed

Expert Reply:

Because your 2010 Ford F-150 has the 5-1/2 foot bed you will need to use a fixed 5th wheel trailer hitch and the trailer must be fitted with a Sidewinder in order to get the clearance needed to make tight turns without the trailer overhang hitting the truck cab.

First, for an installation kit, use # RP50081-58. For hitches there are several options depending on what weight capacity you need for the trailer. I have included a link to the options for you.

For a Sidewinder you will need to go by the manufacturer and model number of the pin box (not the trailer itself). There should be a sticker or plate on the pin box with this information. Then use the FAQ I have linked to determine if there is a fit.
