Best Sliding 5TH Wheel Trailer Hitch For a 2022 Ford F-250/F350 With Factory Prep/Puck Package  


I just bought a new 2022 Ford F-250 with the factory in bed hitch mounting points. It is a short be so I want to get a sliding hitch. What hitch do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

I recommend the Demco Hijacker as being the best 5th wheel hitch for your 2022 Ford F-250. This hitch is available in 2 weight ratings based on the 5th wheel you will be hauling.

18,000LB Demco Hijacker # DM8550024
21,000LB Demco Hijacker # DM8550038

Both of these are auto-sliding hitches so you can stay in your truck instead of having to deal with unlocking and locking in receiver that is needed with a manual slider. They will drop into your factory prep/puck holes in your bed for a fast installation. If you have a specialty style pin box like the Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, Trailair Flexair, Rota Flex, and 5th Airborne you will need a custom locking plate. Otherwise the standard 12"-14" wide pin boxes will work without a mounting plate.

Locking Plate for Demco Glide Ride Pin Boxes # DM6036
Locking Plate for Extended 5th Airborne Pin Boxes # DM6062
Locking Plate for Trailair Tri-Glide Pin Boxes # DM6095
Locking Plate for Standard 5th Airborne Pin Boxes # DM6026
Locking Plate for MOR/ryde Pin Boxes # DM6025
Locking Plate for Lippert Rhino Pin Boxes # DM76FR
