Gooseneck hitch

I have heard that on a ford you cant put a weld on gooseneck hitch, as it will void warranty... is this true? does anyone know for fact? I am not a fan of bolt on hitches, they are too cheesy for me. I like steel welded to frame.

Properly sized grade 8 bolts will be stronger then welding to the frame.
