Best 5th Wheel Hitch for 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty With OEM Puck System  


I have a 2021 Ford F-250 super duty and got the fifth wheel prep package with the pucks. I'd like a fifth wheel hitch that fits directly in the pucks with no adapter or anything. Can you tell me what the best hitch is for my truck and why that is? Much appreciated, thank you.

There is one 5th wheel hitch that fits your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the factory puck system that really does stand above the rest, which is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch.

The reason why the Companion is the best is because it is constructed to ensure you have the best possible ride; it has a herculean jaw system along with cushioned bushings and a pivoting head, all of which combine to give you the most comfortable and quiet towing experience possible.

There are three possible options depending on if your 2021 F-250 has a short bed (so you'd need the sliding version) or a long bed, and I'll list them for you.

- B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package (20,000 lbs) # BWRVK3370

- B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package (25,000 lbs) # BWRVK3305 or (20,000 lbs) # BWRVK3300

The biggest difference between the Companion and other hitches is the jaw system I mentioned. The jaws on the Companion are a full 1 inch thick and are why the Companion - more than any other fifth wheel hitch - minimizes the chucking, jarring and noise that can occur when towing a fifth wheel trailer, The size of the jaws, as well as the fact that B&W's tolerances are +/- .002 inch, are what makes such a huge difference. I have added a photo of the jaws so you can see their full breadth and why they act like an adhesive to your king pin.

The bushings on the Companion are another important factor; they are made of polyurethane which act as cushions that absorb noise and rattle so you can get to your destination in comfort. The Companion is considered by most - myself included - to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch in the industry. As evidence of this you can see that this hitch has been reviewed more than 1,000 times by our customers (as of this writing), and they have given it a nearly unanimous 5-star rating.

I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like of the B&W Companion # BWRVK3370, # BWRVK3305 and # BWRVK3300.
