Have at 2012 (similar to 2013s) with the FORD/Reese hitch. The Ford option is a Reese Elite hitch with Ford stickers on it. The hitch is made by Reese and is an Elite series 25K. (on the F-250 the hitch is a Reese Elite 18K with the 25K being the optional hitch). It works for me but I was used to the reese having the forerunner to the Elite with a Reese Signature hitch in my previous tow vehicle.

I have the Reese Elite 25K hitch on my 2011 F350. Works great. No problems so far.

Just upgraded to a 2015 F-350 Dually with the new 26.5K hitch. Just two days ago we hooked up to a 2016 Mobile Suites... So far, I really like it... The fact that it had no bed rails is good..l

Wish I would have gone with the Ford hitch, thought aftermarket would be cheaper, turned out I was wrong.

What aftermarket did you choose? And why is it not satisfactory?

Cost and rails

went with a Reese 22k hitch with rails and installation ended up spending about what it would have been with the ford installed and the would not have the rails to deal with, hitch works fine however.
