To make your Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Nissan Titan XD Towing Prep Package # C16520-16026 compatible with your 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty you'll first to replace the Titan legs with standard legs, part # C16920.

For the rails I recommend going with a custom fit kit like part # C16428-204. The brackets in this kit are specifically designed to align with your F-250's frame and utilize the factory holes to bolt through, minimizing drilling to just the bed. Not having to drill into the frame will also cut down on your installation time.

I also recommend installing an in-bed 7-way socket like part # C57008. This custom fit harness will simply plug in-line with your factory 7-way for a fast and easy install. Having an in-bed 7-way will make it much easier to hook up your fifth wheel wiring to your F-250 and prevent your cord from getting kinked or damaged like it would if you had to route it around the tailgate and plug it into the factory 7-way.
