Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2020 Ram 2500 8 Bed With OEM Prep Package  


Just bought 2020 Ram 2500 crew cab 8 foot box. The truck came with the fifth wheel setup. I have a 5th wheel with 9500 UVW, What is the best hitch to get for this application?

Congratulations on the new truck!

Since your 2020 Ram 2500 with an 8' bed has the OEM Prep Package I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16520-16021 which has a 16000lb weight capacity which will be plenty for your 5th wheel trailer that weighs 9500lbs unloaded.

The Curt # C16520-16021 has dual jaws that over 360 degree king pin contact for a secure and smooth ride, along with the fully articulating torsion head will give you a smoother ride by absorbing road shock, and will make hitching to your trailer a breeze.

If you would prefer a hitch with a higher weight rating just in case you upgrade to a longer 5th wheel trailer, the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16044 would be a great option with its 20000lb weight capacity as it share the same great features as the Curt # C16520-16021.

I included a video of the Curt # C16044 for you to take a look at.
