Is the Reese bed hitch same as factory?

So I've decided to install the factory style gooseneck/5th wheel hitch in my truck, I was looking on Etrailer and saw that Reese had the same identical hitch, is that what the factory bed hitch is?

Yes, I've got one in 18k. Shop around the internet by Reese part # and you'll save a lot of $$

Ok, I thought it was the factory hitch, I might call ford tomorrow to get a price from them also

The new Ford Factory hitch, and Dodges also, are Cequent products, who owns Reese, Bargman, and others.
B&W are very very nice. 2X THE QUALITY? Idk about that.

Ok I just looked up the b&w, alot cheaper than the Reese as for quality I don't have any experience with 5th wheel hitches so I can't add anything there

On top of the B&W hitch (it's a GN), you need their Companion hitch (5th wheel) that slides into the GN receptacle. It's about $1000.

We have both the ford factory hitch and I have a b&w in my truck and hands down the b&w is superior. You don't have to drill 5 large holes in the bed and also everything stays in the bed, the ford one you have to remove the ball and the hooks and store in a tool box or in the cab. The ford hitch just seems like an after thought by ford if you ask me but they do both work.

B&w has released a fifth wheel that goes in the factory mounts if the truck had the fifth wheel prep
