Curtis 24k works great. Fits in my Ford F350 factory puck system.

Normally yes, but the 2017 really upped axles and tires and give you a true SAE 20,600. No DRW needed, moved up from 15,100 to 20,600 with major upgrades. DRW went to 31,700!!!! All the new 5th wheels I am looking at say no slider needed up to 90 degrees, is that enough? GVWR is 11,500.

I have the 18K Reese non-slider in my long bed F-250 and I've got about 90,000 miles on it without a hitch. (Pun intended.)

For a short bed I wouldn't have any other hitch than a Pullrite Super Slide which provides automatic sliding.
For an 8' box I like the Pullrite standard.
Both are available in a model that utilizes the Ford factory mount.

B&W make the finest 5th wheel packages on the market today. They have one specially built to match the Ford pucks.

I guess it's different for different folks. Going by the road I live on, it is narrow and even though I installed a 32' culvert for my RV driveway I still have to make a pretty sharp cut.....although 90 degrees isn't necessary. When I brought the new 5'er home I tested it just to see and got close to 90 degrees.
The tow capacities for the new F-350 are great, but it's usually the hitch weight that will get you. You gave a GVWR of 11,500, which is pretty good. The yellow sticker I mentioned will state your particular truck's max cargo carrying capacity or better known as payload......but actually weighing the truck unloaded at a cat scale and subtracting that from 11,500 is the only way to know for sure what your payload capacity is. Of course any cargo and people loaded in the truck will have to be subtracted as well as the weight of the hitch itself. The hitch weight of your loaded trailer will need to fall under whatever is left over.

I have a Demco Highjacker auto slide that works great.
Easier to hook and unhook than the pullrite.

Fits the ford factory prep, drops right in.

F350
