Difference Between Hitch Position When Curt and Reese Fifth Wheel Rails are Used on 2018 Ford F150

Question:

I am looking for a fifth wheel rails, bracket, and hitch for my new 2018 F 150 . When I look at the rails and custom bracket installation instruction I am confuse. Curt and Reese have the same distance from bed end to rail but one is 1 inch pin to axle and Curt is two inches . How can it be ?

Helpful Expert Reply:

Some hitches like the B and W Companion hitches have adjustable head positions from front to back to allow more clearance as needed. The difference between the Reese # RP56034-53 and Curt # C16442-204 would be the different relative jaw position to the hitch rails that either brand typically uses.

Both of these kits are custom fit kits that will install much quicker than universal kit and will minimize drilling.
