Best 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-450 Long Bed with Factory Puck System


I am looking for the highest capacity 5th wheel I can get for my 2019 F-450 long bed. It has the puck system in the bed.

The highest capacity 5th wheel hitch for your 2019 Ford F-450 Super Duty pickup with the factory prep is the Reese M5 series hitch # RP30922 which is rated for 26,500-lbs towing. The next highest capacity comes from the 25K-rated B&W Companion # BWRVK3305. I really like the B&W Companion # BWRVK3305 and I recommend it over the Reese despite the slightly lower 25K capacity.

I recommend the B&W because it is USA-made and has a build quality that is superior to the Reese and also to most other comparable hitches. For some examples, the Companion's cast jaws are a full 1-inch-thick, the head assembly offers full articulation for easier hitching and the pivot arms give you a 2-inch front-to-back adjustment range for increasing turning clearance.

B&W does their own in-house fabrication and assembles right in their family-owned Kansas facility. This gives them complete control of their products. They are not at the mercy of a factory a thousand miles away. Their products function reliably and they last.

The linked review video will give you full background on all of the Companion's beneficial features. And the linked photo shows the Companion installed in a Ford truck like yours.
