I don't see 5th wheel prep package. I see trailering wiring provisions, but that's it.

What TV are you looking at?

I just finished pricing a 1 ton dually and I was able to select the 5th wheel prep option

You are right. May have to talk with the dealer.

I selected the Gooseneck Hitch Package (EZr Underbed Gooseneck Center) - Associated Accessories as I am going to purchase the Andersen ultimate 5th wheel hitch package

I read somewhere that the Anderson hitch is not recommended with cushioned pin boxes, such as the Mor-ryde. Leaves me out.

I ordered the factory 5 th wheel on my 2015 F 450 . Puck system is the best. Reese 26.5K capacity pulling a jayco seismic 4212 that is maxed out when loaded. As for pulling with a gooseneck set up, no way for me. Pulled doubles to Alberta and changed every gooseneck to a king pin every trip. Tried it both ways and put on 40,000 miles and king pin is the best for safety and comfort.

As for the Lippert frame warranty, I would check again on warranty. 2 5/16" gooseneck conversion changes all the stress points and I have been told in Elkhart not to do it.

We have a 2012 Ford CCLB SRW with camper/plow prep package and we use the B&W hitch and it works great. Easy to remove or install. I have a long box so I can't comment on the slider.


Good luck

Quick update:

Thank you all for sharing your experiences. I did get the Ram 3500 with the bed liner and 5th wheel/goose neck prep.

I ordered the Curt goose neck ball and safety chain pucks off amazon. They are about $100 cheaper than the dealer ball/pucks.

I ordered the Andersen ultimate. I have the mega cab short bed, so I'm not sure if I'll regret not getting a slider, but we'll see.

It has been two years since you posted this. Iím curious how happy youíve been with this set up or if youíve changed to something else.

I just got a new GM with the factory prep package and spray in liner. Also just ordered the Curt ball from Amazon. I have already been using the Andersen hitch with my old truck on a B&W turn-over ball and a Rhino liner. I liked the Andersen with that ball and liner but, Iím not sure about the new liner and puck system.

I would like to hear from someone else with experience... First hand experience goes a long way.
