Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2018 Ford F-250


Do you have any suggestions on buying a 5th wheel hitch for my 18 F250 super crew short bed and should I have it professionally installed or can I install it myself


Expert Reply:

Yes, for your 2018 Ford F-250 I highly recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitch part # C16521. The Curt A16 is my favorite 5th wheel hitch due to its dual interlocking jaw system which grips the kingpin extremely tight so there is very little movement which can cause a rough ride. The Curt A16 also has an easy one pin head removal system that allows for one person to remove the hitch one their own in two pieces and it is cost effective when compared to similar options with the dual locking jaws.

In order to install either above hitch, I recommend using the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16428-204. The custom fit of this kit means there is no drilling into the frame required therefore you should be able to install the hitch by yourself in a few hours without issue. I have attached an install video to give you a better idea of what is involved.
