Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch With Pivoting Head For 2001 Ford F-350 With 8-Ft Bed


Hello, I have a 2001 F350 long bed. I already have a standard 5th wheel hitch in place. Plus a fold down gooseneck ball. I would like to hookup and unhook at an angle. Not sure that my standard 5th wheel hitch would allow me to do that safely. With rails in place plus a fold down gooseneck ball what would you recommend. Thanks

There are a couple ways you can go about doing what you want to do.

If you want a fifth wheel hitch that will work in standard base rails on your truck and will pivot so you can hook up at an angle I recommend a hitch like the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16245. The head on this hitch will pivot 360-degrees.

Another solution is to use a Sidewinder Pin Box. This would pivot when you park and allow you top just back up and hook up with the hitch you already have in your truck. If you let me know what pin box you have on your trailer I will be glad to make a recommendation that will work for you.
