To determine which hitch extension you will need for pulling your trailer behind your 2022 Ford F-350 with the factory 3" receiver while you are carrying a truck bed camper you will need to measure the distance needed for the amount the camper sticks out. We have a few different length extensions that you will need to use with a weight distribution hitch to haul your trailer.

36" TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension # TLE1636
42" TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension # TLE1642
48" TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension # TLE1648

You will need to use a weight distribution hitch with any of these for the 5,000lbs your trailer will weigh with the Kubota loaded. Each extension has its own maximum tongue weight and trailer weight when using a weight distribution hitch. The 36" # TLE1636 is rated for 720lbs of tongue weight and a trailer weight of 7,200lbs with a weight distribution hitch. The 42" # TLE1642 is rated for 660lbs of tongue weight and a trailer weight of 6,600lbs with a weight distribution hitch. The 48" # TLE1648 is rated for 600lbs of tongue weight and a trailer weight of 6,000lbs with a weight distribution hitch.

I recommend using the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA92-00-0800 with any of the extensions listed above. This system is rated for a trailer with a tongue weight of 400-800lbs and maximum trailer weight up to 8,000lbs. You will need a 2-5/16" Ball # EQ91-00-6100 for your trailer coupler and a 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket # ALL643216 to install it onto the hitch.
