Recommended Under-Bed 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Mounts for 2015 Ford F250 Long Bed

Question:

I have a brand-new 2015 Ford F250 long bed. I want to tow both gooseneck and fifth wheel trailers. I was interested in getting what Ford calls the Tow Prep Package, with the puck things in the bed that leave the bed unobstructed when the hitch is removed but I was pretty repulsed when I saw what Ford wanted for that package. Do you have something similar that won't send me to the poorhouse?

Expert Reply:

I'm not sure what Ford charges for their prep package, but we certainly offer the aftermarket version. In my experience, aftermarket parts are usually much less expensive than their OEM counterparts.

Starting with the rail kit that bolts to your frame and provides the pucks, you'd need part # RP30126. If you add part # RP30138, you'd be able to tow gooseneck trailers, as well. For a fifth wheel hitch, Reese offers an 18K and a 26.5K hitch that would fit directly into the pucks, for the 18K, use part # RP30142 or # RP30871 for the 26.5K version. Or, if the # RP30156 adapter is used, you could use a hitch from Reese, Curt or Husky (among others) that are compatible with industry-standard fifth wheel rails.
