How to Tow Small Boat When Hauling Fifth Wheel with 2003 Ford F550


Do you offer a 5th wheel rack? A rack that permits carrying a boat over the cab and hood of the truck.


Expert Reply:

If you have the F550 cab and chassis model, your best bet would be to go with a front mounted hitch like # 65022 then, depending on the size of the boat, you might be able to use a goal post rack like # EM07600-07601. This rack has a weight capacity of 400 lbs, but you will want to check your owners manual to find the weight capacity of your roof. The bars will support boats up to 52" wide.

Finally you will want Rightline GearKayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # RL100K10. The foam blocks provide a safe surface for your vehicle and boat, and straps and tie-downs ensure that your boat stays put during transport.

Check out the linked videos and installation details for more information.

If you have the F550 Super Duty there is no front mounted hitch available.
