Industry Standard 5th Wheel Bracket and Rail Kit for a 2018 F-150 XLT


I have a 2018 F-150 XLT four door FX4 with 5-1/2 bed and need a rail and bracket to fit the Curt E5 5th wheel hitch as well as add a gooseneck plate looking at the 16055. Please advise if the 16424-104 is the appropriate kit or recommend the right kit. thanks

You have done your research well. I can confirm that both the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford - Gloss Finish item # C16424-104 and the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails item # 16055 are a confirmed fit for your 2018 Ford F-150 FX4 with a 5-1/2 foot bed. The Curt rail kit will provide you with industry standard rails that will fit not only your Curt 5th Wheel Hitch but also the Curt Gooseneck plate. I have linked a couple of review videos for both products.

I recommend adding the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector for Aluminum Beds - 7' Long item # C57008 to your towing setup. This harness will add a 7-way connector inside the bed of your truck for easy access when hooking up your 5th wheel and gooseneck trailer's wiring harnesses. This kit also allows you to keep the 7-way that is on your bumper.
