1999 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Perfect fit on a 1999 F350 2wd with single rear wheels. Only thing not mentioned was on driver side front hole a bolt that was being used for grounding to the frame on both sides. Just had to remove it and replace with one supplied.

2000 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Excellent products , fits like a glove, hole pattern for installation and our current fifth wheel set up which is a different brand . Thank you

2001 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Very fast shipping. I put it in with a bud in about an hour and a half. Everything fit great. I believe it's very sturdy, and well designed. Thank you for your support team, they were great. I pull a large 5th wheel camper. I was using a goose neck hitch, but This conversion is much better. Well worth the effort. Thanks..

Great quality. Fit was perfect, and support from e-trailer helped me get un-confused !

1999 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Perfect fit on a 1999 F350 2wd with single rear wheels. Only thing not mentioned was on driver side front hole a bolt that was being used for grounding to the frame on both sides. Just had to remove it and replace with one supplied.


Customer service was great - I initially ordered the wrong parts and Jonathon helped me get the right ones ordered and processed the returned parts quickly for a refund.

Installation was a breeze and the fifth wheel has performed flawlessly over the past year - no issues with function.

Main complaint/caution: The paint is VERY poor quality. After 1 year and very little use of my truck, paint in the rails is flaking off in big chunks. I imagine I could peel the whole thing with a plastic spatula. The brackets are showing a bit of rust as well.

I would recommend to anyone why cares about appearance that they first sandblast and paint these items (w/ a quality coating) prior to installation.

2002 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Works like it was intended. Had some problems with bolt placements. Nothing though that couldn't be solved with some extra thinking. I had a sprayed bed liner and did not take that in consideration of my measurements. Bolt off approximately one eighth of an inch. Only problem. Just had to enlarge the hole slightly. Took about 3 hours to complete. Everything else was fine and dandy. Only advice would be to double check all measurements and take your time. You do have to drill the frame one hole on each side if I do remember correctly. Have fun.


This is a well-made installation kit and it's pretty easy to install if you're somewhat mechanical and even easier with a helper. Very good buy for the money.

The instructions aren't great, but they're at least comprehensible and it's not too difficult to figure out what you need to do using simple logic.

The only required tool you probably don't have have in your tool box is a step drill bit that goes down to 1/2". You need this to enlarge two holes in your truck's frame, one on each side. It's actually really easy; the step bit makes it a cinch, but you NEED the step bit to accomplish this. The step bit is also handy for drilling through the bed. Using it was much easier than making the attempt with a regular straight bit.


Easy installation and all the custom fit shims for a tight fit.

Suggest providing a hole in the aft end of the Bracket to allow drilling a hole into the frame for a stronger fit than the square hole.


Installed easily on the F 250. Matched up great. These people have really dome there homework.

Went camping three times this year. Hitch worked perfect.

Ford F-350 Super Duty

Really like how the brackets attach to the frame and match the frame holes on my F350. Took a little bit to sort out the parts and figure out what went where as the written directions don't really tell you what to use. The schematic is pretty detailed but like I said don't be in a hurry to install and review the schematic before installing. I recommend you have a helper, did it myself which made it take longer but, that tells you how it isn't that difficult to install if you have some experience turning a wrench. I am by no means a mechanic!!
The customer service was outstanding specifically, Lexus!! She was a pleasure to talk to and I believe the product she recommended is better than what I was originally going to select. She really helped as I have never pulled a fifth wheel before just travel trailers and really didn't know what was best for my truck .It seemed like it shipped within hours and I received in a couple days!! Highly recommend them!


Great Kit Easy installThis was great time save and everything lined up great. I have a 6.5' bed and everything was great. Even the clearance between Fifth wheel and cab was great. I can turn with confidence and no slide rail....

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The custom installation kit worked great in my 1999 F-250. It was very helpful to watch the installation videos first so I had a good idea how to proceed. The video's also helped because the written instructions were a little hard to follow. Total time for installation was 2.5 hours.


Etrailer videos and instruction tips are the best. Would recommend etrailer over the CHEAPEST price just because of the support. You will have a hard time installing the hitch if you do not have the etrailer support.


Easy to handleInstructions leave alot to the imagination.. With better instructions this would be as easy as putting a train track together.


This kit is a good quality kit, however the installation directions were poorly written. It was hard to see which bolts when into which holes in the truck frame. Only 2 holes in the frame had to be drilled larger.

2003 Ford F-350

The product has yet to be installed but the service from this site is excellent. Very happy with the service. Pictures are a great way to sell things and that's what helped me. THAN YOU and your staff for being so quick to process orders and make sure we as consumers get our products so fast and accurate


Shipplng was very quick with tracking information. Installation was a little difficult based off of directions but went to web site and watched video and was very easy.

2003 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Fit was execelent, made the job much quicker than using the universal kit. Well worth the extra money for the time savings.


Easy to install with a little common sense. It didn't take much time at all, was able to complete it after work one night. I was not impressed with the paint quality at all, basically flaked off in my hand. But oh well its under the truck.

2000 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Worked as it should, had some missing washers and they were replaced very quickly!

A good place to buy from!


Package job was excellent. Arrived within 3 business days. It would be helpful to have a link to one of the instructional videos online.


Great customer service and quick shipping, especially considering today's climate.

2002 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Item was as described. I installed this the same day I received. Easy installation.


Product was shipped fast! The installation was very easy and product is great quality!


terrible instructionsif they would spend more time making detailed instructions, sure would have saved me time. Measure twice, cut once
