Helpful Expert Reply:

Either option will work for your 1995 Ford F-350 with the 8' bed and overload springs, but I recommend going with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3500-5W and Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1110-5W as it will not require you to install rails inside of your bed that get in the way, and since it can also be used a gooseneck hitch.

The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # BWRVK3200 and B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # BWRVR3200 you mentioned is a standard 5th wheel hitch and the industry standard above bed rails. There is nothing wrong with them as they are a very popular option, but you will always have the rails in the bed even when the hitch is removed and will be limited to only a 5th wheel trailer where the other option can be used for 5th wheel and gooseneck.

I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
