Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation For 2013 Ford F-350 With Factory Tow Package And Wiring  


I have a 2013 Ford F-350 super duty PU. It is wired for a FW and it has 4 or 5 pucks installed in its bed. Do I have a Factory Rail Kit? Thanks in advance.


Expert Reply:

With the pucks in the bed of your 2013 Ford F-350, and with the 5th wheel wiring, you have the factory under bed rails installed. When you have a short bed on your truck, it is recommended to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch. This helps avoid contact with the cab of the truck when making turns.

For your truck I recommend a 5th wheel system like the Pro Series Fifth Wheel, part # PS30121. This is a sliding 5th wheel that will move the hitch and the king pin 10 inches closer to the tail gate, which helps increase turning clearance. This has an adjustable height from 13 to 17 inches, and has a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 lbs. You will also need the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, part # RP30156. This adapter uses the pucks in the bed of your truck and creates standard above bed rails needed to install your 5th wheel hitch.

For a 16,000 lb fth wheel sliding hitch I recommend part # RP30075, and for the 16,000 lb hitch I recommend part # RP30047.
