I have a 2003 Cardinal 29WB. The tow vehicle is a 2003 Ford F350, diesel, 4x4, SuperCab. Long Box.

I would like a hitch that is:
double pivot
16K or greater
good locking system
rail kit that easily provides a clean bed

Any suggestions?

I love my Reese Signature 18K, pivots side to side and front to rear. When revoved there are 4 little pucks in the bed of truck with rubber grommets that go in it. You can remove the hitch in less then five min.. And when you are hooked up correctly you know it.

My answer,

B&W Turnover ball with the Companion fifth wheel hitch.

All you have in the bed when not in use is a small circular plug that sits flush with the bed.

Have a customer with a 36' Prarrie Schooner quad slide that uses this set-up in his F-350 King Ranch 4X4. Neat system!

I just put a 21000 lb Hijacker double piviot in my truck with the under bed mounting system. When it is out it leaves the bed totally clean. Had it done here in Medicine Hat.
Cheers

I agree with Don - I have the B & W Turnover Ball with companion hitch. It swivels 4 directions and when removed leaves nothing in the truck bed. Can be used to pull a gooseneck trailer or 5th wheel. I am really pleased with mine.

Another satisfied B&W user - for more information, take a look at the Turnoverball 30K rated gooseneck hitch and 18K rated companion 5th wheel RV hitch HERE. A top quality hitch when you need it; a clean bed when you don't.
