Does 2022 Ford F-350 Short Bed with OEM Rail Kit Need Slider Hitch to Tow 2021 Van Leigh Pinecrest


I have a 2022 Ford F-350 Crew Cav Shortbed and want to purchase a 16K Reese Goosebox hitch to tow a 2021 Van Leigh Pinecrest Fifth Wheel. I am concerned with clearance between cab and trailer. Are there any options available for me to increase offset? The truck has the factory fifth wheel/Gooseneck package installed.


Expert Reply:

I looked up the 2021 Van Leigh Pinecrest and it has a pretty wide front section which does not help out much for short bed truck turning clearance. So what that means is that you probably won't have great turning clearance with your 2022 Ford F-350 with the OEM rail kit and short bed using a Reese Goose Box like the part # RP94716 that you referenced.

I'd rather recommend you a slider hitch that fits your Ford rail kit like the B and W Companion # BWRVK3370 as this would give you ability to slide back and gain more turning clearance around sharp corners.
