5th Wheel Installation Kit for an RBW Lil Rocker and 2004 Ford F-250 Long Bed


I have recently purchased a Ford F250 Super Duty XLT, 4 door, long box. It came with a 15K Lil Rocker and rails, but no mounting hardware. I will be towing a 8500 GTW Alpinlite Fifth Wheel. I am new to fifth wheel towing so can you advise me on what the best mounting options would be? From what I am reading the custom mount is a better option for ease of installation and have seen the RP50082-58 referenced on questions for other F-Series Trucks from different years, using the RBW.


Expert Reply:

Custom fit 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kits are much easier to install and require much less drilling compared to universal or semi-custom kits. I do recommend going with Reese kit # RP50082-58 for your 2004 Ford F-250 long bed. I have linked a video showing how this kit installs.

The RBW Lil Rocker should fit the industry standard above the bed rails. But we always like to make sure. I have included a picture showing the relevant rail measurements. Just make sure that the feet on the hitch match up.
