Re: Ford 5th Wheel Prep Package for SB
If your pulling a 5th wheel camper, from what I understand you need a "Slider" hitch to pull one, or chance having your cab damaged when you turn sharply.
As far as the factory setup goes, I heard both ways, that there is a special hitch by Reece for the Ford factory setup, then I have heard that you can buy one that will fit aftermarket. I elected NOT to do the factory setup. For a couple of reasons, First the factory 5er hitch is 1600.00 from Ford and I couldn't get a straight answer about any aftermarket options, also here are 5 holes in the bed with it. The B&W hitch only has ONE hole in the center of the bed. However I don't think the B&W hitch has a slider option, you will need to get one made for short beds. I imagine all the hitch manufacturers have sliders to pick from.
