5th wheel hitch mount from factory

Do any of you know if the factory mount system will work with a Reese signature series hitch? I currently own a Signature series hitch and I want to make sure that the factory mouting will work with my existing hitch?

I'm pretty sure that's what it was designed for is your hitch. I'm not 100% though..

The factory system was designed for the Reese Elite Series hitch. I believe that adapters are available for the Signature Series but I'm not 100% certain.

It has been awhile since I did my research, but I believe the system will only work with Ford's (expensive) hitch. It really drove the price up and I decided it was not worth extra cost, although it would have been convenient.

Your signature hitch will work with adapters. Elite is what the prep is designed for. You do not have to buy a Ford hitch.

The locking legs are replaced. the Ford mounts set lower than the original Reese mounts. Replacing the legs takes about an hour and I seen where some people have found then for a little over $100. I ordered the adapter kit from Ford (back in Feb '10) and changed them myself. I have the Reese 18K (original Signature ).
