I use the adapter available from Ford:

Ford Adaptor

My hitch is a Hijacker (now Demco).

Very happy with the performance and function. I setup a hoist in the garage to install and remove the hitch and adaptor as one unit. Super easy.

I had to modify the hitch as the Hijacker "pins" were not the same spacing as the adapter holes. Not sure if Demco has moved to the same standard as Reese. Just something to consider. Good luck!

Exclamation 5th wheel hitch. I have used the reese adapter with reg. hitch, with the puck system. worked good.

2013 F350 with under bed mount, went with the B&W companion, Works great Amazon about $1000. Check around they are from 900 --1000 Good Luck PS> The B&W is rated at 20K

Guess I'm spoiled like mtl-diesel. I pull in the shop attach the over head winch and push a button & drive out from under. 200 LBS? It's 200lbs that works with no adapters and no added height.

Looks like a re-badged Reese.

This gentleman is struggling; after storing his AUH he must return to the truck and retrieve the removable goose-neck ball.

Yup. It would make sense. I may be wrong but I believe if you purchase the hitch from Ford, it is indeed a Reese.

My setup works great!

I’ve tried a Reese gooseneck and a B&W on two different trucks. They are both really good but I tend to prefer the B&W. I prefer gooseneck over 5th wheel rail mount personally, but I can see why you might not agree. This list has B&W at the top too: http://topautotools.com/best-gooseneck-hitch-towing-truck-bed/

Speaking of it I just remembered, I need to remove my rear seat center headrest, it blocked my view while hitching; I don't believe my two dogs will care.
You can also just lean the seat down until hooked up........😬
