5th Wheel Hitch Needed to Fit with Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL88398 on a 2008 Ford F-250


Can i use a reese rp30073 underbed rail kit in my 2008 f250 with the air lift 5000 88398 kit?

The Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30073 may fit with the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL88398 according to my contact at Air Lift but you may have to do some drilling into the 5th wheel brackets.

I don't advise doing this so instead I recommend going with the B&W Gooseneck Kit # BWGNRK1108-5W which already has a hole in the bracket where the bolt from your air bag kit will fit. This will not only allow you to tow a gooseneck trailer, but you can still tow a 5th wheel trailer with the Companion # BWRVK3500-5W if you have a long bed or # BWRVK3400-5W if you have a short bed.

This will still give you a clean bed when the 5th wheel hitch is removed just like if you were to install the Kit # RP30073.

Some installation and review videos have been linked for you to check out as well.
