Availability of Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Ford F-250 Short Bed


I have a 2016 F250 short bed, non OEM rails that Id like to install a 5th wheel hitch on. I am planning on using the under bed rails. The fit that you show BWRVK3400-5W is a slider model. Wondering if there is a non-slider model?

It sounds like you would like to install the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1111-5W on your 2016 F-250 short bed to use a B&W Companion. The reason you are seeing the # BWRVK3400-5W is because you have the 6-3/4 bed. This is typically what is recommended to ensure that you have enough clearance with turning on the short bed model.

Assuming you have a tapered nose on your 5th wheel that allows for short bed clearance, or a pivoting pin box like a Sidewinder, you can use the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3500-5W. This is the fixed version of the companion and will also fit the custom underbed installation kit.
