Will Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch and Installation Kit PS30132 Fit a 2001 Ford F-350 Dually

Question:

Will this hitch fit a 2001 f350 ford dually Pro Series Fifth Wheel - PS30132

Helpful Expert Reply:

The # PS30132 Pro Series fifth-wheel hitch and installation kit includes a universal rail kit that will work on your 2001 Ford F-350, but from my research it does look like Ford offered a short bed dually model in the 2001 year. If your truck has a short bed, you would need to go with a fifth-wheel hitch that has a slider instead. The slider prevents the trailer from hitting the back of the cab while maneuvering into tight spots.

A comparable hitch with a slider would be the Pro Series 20k hitch # PS30121. You would still be able to use the universal rail kit, part # RP30035, or we also offer a custom rail kit by Reese, part # RP50082-58, that would significantly cut down on the installation time.

If your truck has a factory 7-Way plug installed, we offer fifth-wheel wiring # 54701-003 which would give you a plug in the truck bed for easier access.

To complete your setup, I would recommend a lube plate, part # RP83001, which eliminates the need for greasing the fifth-wheel head. You might also want a base rail lock, part # TR63254, to secure the hitch to the rails.

I am including some review videos and typical installation videos for the rail kits I mentioned, as well as installation instructions for you to reference.
