Yes, I just turn the ball over when not in use, and the bed is clear and flat. About a minute to remove the Andersen Ultimate, and less than 2 to put it back on.

I'm planning to use the Anderson Ultimate Rail Mount Fifth Wheel Hitch in my 2010 F 150 SCREW 5.5' bed. It is a steel frame which fits into the slots on any standard rail mount system. I'm thinking about using the Reece rails as they have longer formed steel plates which bolt to the frame vs. smaller L brackets on other rail mount systems. My impression, haven't measured yet, is that they will mount thru existing holes in my frame and I won't need to drill holes other than the four vertical holes thru the truck bed.

Anderson won't be making an aluminum version of the rail mount hitch as the tabs which stick into the rails won't have enough shear strength if made from aluminum.

I use the Ultimate mounted on rails in a F150 short bed. I love it!
