RE: Upgrade to 5th wheel

No, you don't need a heavy/expensive sliding hitch. The newer FWs are designed for the newer standard bed trucks, such as the Ford 6' 9" bed. If you can turn your TT short/ back it in tight spaces, a FW will be just as easy. If you mean a gooseneck adapter added to your pinbox, not a good choice. Jerry Jerry, I was thinking with the gooseneck I would not have to give up the truck bed. Is there another way? Many 2019 F250s will have the underbed puck system oem installed. If yours came with this system, rubber plugs in bed, the B&W 3300, is an easy in/easy out solution, allowing full use of bed, when removed. This hitch allows lots of space in front, and behind hitch while still installed. Do you have the fifth wheel prep option, factory installed on your truck? I don't have it. Well, there was no evidence in the bed but it appears that I do have the rails under the bed.

RE: Upgrade to 5th wheel

Thank you all for your help! I’m told that I should have a sliding hitch with the short bed. Is a gooseneck hitch a possibility?

RE: Upgrade to 5th wheel

OK, so the rear GAWR is 6340 and the RAW is 2840. So, it appears the 12000 for the loaded trailer would be OK, but would I be pushing to the limit?

Upgrade to 5th wheel

I have a 2019 Ford F-250 6.7l diesel. I’m looking at a Grand Design 320MKS but want to make sure my truck can haul it. According to the brochure the trailer is 10,721 UVW. According to Fords towing guide the truck will tow 14,800 lbs. I’m thinking that if it will I may need to beef up the rear suspension. Also, I’m not sure how “UVW” relates to the actual weight I will be towing. Also looking for hitch recommendations. Thanks for any help provided. Lenny
