5th Wheel Hitch/Install Kit Recommendations for 2015 Ram 2500


to install 5th wheel hitch . 2015 ram 2500 does not have factory hitch holes . what are my options ?


Expert Reply:

For a reasonably priced above bed rail/bracket kit to install a fifth wheel hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Kit, part # C16427-204. The bed rails included with this kit are compatible with hitches that use industry standard bed rails, like those sold by Reese, Draw-Tite, Valley, Husky and Curt, among others. If you don't already have a fifth wheel hitch, Curt offers some high quality but reasonably priced options. I like the Q20 hitch, for short bed trucks you'd use the sliding version, part # C16536 or for long bed trucks, use # C16130.

The # C16420-104 install kit you mentioned fits Dodge Ram trucks up to the 2012 model year, so it wouldn't fit your truck.

If you weren't wanting the rails in your truck bed, you can use an under bed mount system like the Companion hitch offered by B&W. The Companion uses a gooseneck hitch, part # BWGNRK1384-5W as the under bed mount. For a short bed truck, you'd use the sliding Companion hitch, part # BWRVK3400-5W or for long bed trucks, use the stationary model part # BWRVK3500-5W. This option allows for a great deal of flexibility, it would allow you to tow gooseneck and fifth wheel trailers. Both hitch options have an 18K capacity.

To install a 7-way in your truck bed, use part # 41157.
