Recommended Gooseneck And Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2002 Ford F-350 With 8-Ft Bed


I am looking to buy a fifth wheel for my 2002 f350 crew cab dually. It had the 7.3L. I will be hauling a 4 car hauler from state to states. I need something that is a comfortable ride and very strong. I would like to get a fifth wheel, and when I wanted to I can converte it to a gooseneck. Can you tell me what you have including install. Thanks


Expert Reply:

Since you said you want to use your 2002 F-350 for a gooseneck and a fifth wheel I recommend the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # BWRVK3500-5W and part # BWGNRK1108-5W.

This system requires no drilling in to the frame of your truck and gives you both the fifth wheel hitch and a gooseneck hitch, and also an empty bed that can be used for cargo when you are not towing . I have attached a link to an installation video for the custom installation kit you can check out.

I also recommend installing wiring for your trailers in the bed of your truck. It makes it much easier than trying to reach the bumper mounted plugs. I recommend part # PK11893-11932. This plugs into the vehicle wiring and you get an RV 7-pole plug in the truck bed.

When working with electrical connectors I recommend using dielectric grease like part # 11755. This keeps dirt and moisture out of the electrical connections and helps prevent corrosion.
