Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 Short Bed


I currently have a 2012 Super Duty F-250 with a short box. The hitch I have is a Valley 16K Pull Max. I would like to replace it with a Curt Q20 #16536. I am hoping to use the same rails that are in the truck. Is this possible? Also, would you recommend another hitch other than the Q20?


Expert Reply:

The Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch with slider part # C16536 that you are interested in is an excellent slider hitch for your 2012 Ford F-250 with a short bed. This hitch will fit the rails you have in the bed of your truck currently.

The only hitch I would recommend over the Curt would be the Demco Hijacker AutoSlide part # DM8550034. What's great about this hitch is that it will automatically slide when you make turns so that you can avoid the hassle of having to operate a manual slider everytime you enter a parking lot.
