Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed with Rail Kit


I have a 2017 Ford F-250 crew, short bed. Pulling 40ft 5th wheel 15k pds. Want the best slider, light as possible for removing. Has Ford factory mounting bracket installed.

The hitch I would recommend for your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed with the factory rail kit is the Demco Auto Slider part # DM8550038. This hitch has a 21k capacity, but what really makes it nice is that it attaches directly to your rail kit and automatically slides as you make tight turns instead of forcing you to get out of your truck every time you need to slide the hitch.

It's not super lightweight but can easily be broken down into smaller sections to make removing it easier. I attached a review video for this hitch as well.
