2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Reese Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch Underbed Comparison


What is the difference in these 2 under rail 5th wheel/goose neck hitches. RP39FR and RP87FR. 2020 F250 7.3 Gas 6.75 bed. Looking for 5th wheel prep options to use RP94716-61301


Expert Reply:

The Reese Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP39FR and the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP87FR are actually the exact same kit - the Reese 30180 Elite Series Underbed Rail Kit. Both will fit your 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty 6-3/4' bed and work the exactly the same. Please note that there should already be some inner frame brackets welded to your frame. If they aren't there you'll also need the Inner Frame Bracket Kit # RP27FR.

We have them listed out as different part numbers so we can put one in the gooseneck hitch solutions and one in the 5th wheel base rail solutions. This is the same thing as the Ford OEM puck system which I really like. I also recommend picking up a 7-Way wiring kit like the Curt # C57008 so you can easily add a 7-Way socket in your truck bed.

These will work great with the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP94716-61301 (don't forget the Safety Chain Kit # 49150) but they don't come with a gooseneck hitch ball. If that's something you're still needing then I highly recommend the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061 because the latch is built into the handle as opposed to the top of the hitch ball so you don't have to worry about accidentally damaging it.
