Adapter to Allow B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch Install in 2019 Ford F350 With Factory Puck System


Is tHere a base rail for a 2020 f 350 with puck system to fit a patriot slider and a patriot fixed hitch?


Expert Reply:

The B&W Patriot is an industry standard rail mounted fifth wheel hitch that can be used in a 2019 Ford F-350 short bed equipped with the OEM puck mount system by using a Reese Under-Bed Rail Adapter, part # RP30156. The adapter will drop right into the pucks and after an initial one-time adjustment, the Patriot will attach to the rails provided by the adapter.

Stationary Patriot Hitches are available in a 16K model, part # BWRVK3200 or an 18K model, part # BWRVK3255. A sliding 18K model is available as part # BWRVK3270. For proper clearance to the rear of the truck cab, it's recommended that a sliding hitch be used in short bed trucks.

If you don't already have a 7-way installed in the truck bed, you can install one using part # 50-97-410-010. I've linked to an install video for the trailer connector and a demonstration video for the adapter mentioned above.
