Recommended 5th Wheel Bed Rails for 2018 Ford F-150 Compatible With Reese Hitch


Can I put the Reese fifth wheel hitch from my 2003 Chevy Silverado into a 2018 Ford Xlr 150


Expert Reply:

You can absolutely use the Reese 5th wheel hitch from your 2003 Chevy Silverado in a 2018 Ford F-150. You will simply need to add base rails like the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50087-58. These rails are industry standard and the brackets are customized to fit the frame of your new truck.

If you have a short bed truck, then I recommend you consider using a sliding hitch. If you need a sliding base for a fixed hitch, let me know what hitch you currently have so I can see if there is a sliding base option for you.

You may also want to consider the Bargman 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness for Aluminum Truck Bed - 7 Way RV - 9' Long # 50-97-410-010 to give you an easy connection point in the bed of your truck.
