We can get your 2020 Ford F-150 set up to tow a 5th wheel trailer, and let's go ahead and get started with the best 5th wheel hitch and base rail kit, which are the following:

- Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16120

- Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552028-71

I love this set up for your 2020 F-150 because it combines one of the most secure, easiest-to-use hitches with a custom install kit that doesn't require any drilling into your F-150's frame to install. The A16 uses a dual, interlocking jaw system that wraps totally around the king pin. This means that the back-and-forth chucking, bucking and jarring that happens with lesser hitches isn't going to occur with the A16, giving you a far more comfortable ride.

The hitch also has a handy color-coded indicator system, and what this does is let you know if the jaws on the hitch are ready to couple, uncouple or tow, which is why it is so easy to use. Then in regards to air bags, there is one kit that fits your 2020 F-150 that is also compatible with a 5th wheel hitch, from Air Lift:

- Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs # AL88385

Finally, you will need a 5th wheel wiring harness for your F-150, with the correct fit being the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Connector for Aluminum Beds # C57008.

I have added some links below to a number of video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.
