Demco is excited to announce one more addition to the Demco Recon 5th Wheel Family! You are all aware of our Recon Flat Deck Mount for recessed goose ball mounts on steel flatbed trucks part number 8550046. We have listened to our customer requests for a Recon Recessed Goose Ball Mount that works with the Aluminum Truck Bed and the Aluminum Trough Style Truck Beds.

Below is a photo of Demco Part Number 8550069 Demco Recon Recessed Goose Ball Mount for Aluminum Flat Beds. Attached is the new item set up information. The 8550069 is a hitch kit that contains the hitch head part number 6169 (same hitch head as all the Demco Recon Series Hitches) and new part number 6459 Recon Base for Recessed Goose Ball Mount for Aluminum Bed Applications. All the set-up information is attached in the Excel File. This hitch is very similar to Demco part number 8550046, but the base is wider 2″ wider all around to accommodate the Aluminum Trough Style beds. The Goose Ball Connection also goes deeper into the truck bed to be able to grab the goose ball that is recessed further down in the aluminum beds. Same towing capacity as the rest of the Demco Recon Line, 21K.
