2015 Ford F-150

For those of you considering the purchase of a 2015 Ford F-150, please be advised that the new beds are aluminum. While this does lighten the truck by 700 pounds, creating better gas mileage, the aluminum beds have posed a problem in the towing industry for those folks using Goosenecks and 5th Wheels. All towing products are steel and when used on an aluminum bed it can, in time, cause a reaction called galvanic corrosion.

The e-coating on the bed itself as well as the towing product will help avoid rapid deterioration. Portsmouth Trailer Supply has gone a step further by adding a polypropylene tape which will help create an extra barrier between the hitch rails and the bed of the truck.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 757-487-2934, email us at cs@ptrailerusa.com, or stop by and see us at 3227 South Military Highway, Chesapeake, Virginia 23323
