Video Transcript for Reese Accessories and Parts RP30156 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30156. This is the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. It has a 20,000 pound weight capacity.Now this part is designed to convert your Reese Elite Series Underbed Installation Rails, which we do sell separately on our website, to the standard abovebed 5th wheel base rails. This will allow you to use a 5th wheel trailer hitch that attaches to the standard abovebed rails. This part here will actually mount to your Elite Series Rails via the Power Puck System. I'm just going to show you the bottom here. This is what will drop into that Power Puck system.

You'll see the tabs right here, there's 4 of them. What you'll do is open this up, I'm going to show you how, and then you'll drop this into that Power Puck System on your vehicle. It locks into place, there's no drilling or welding required. The finish on this is a nice black powder coat finish. Again, the way you do that is you'll pop off the pin and clip, do the same over here, pop off the pin and clip. Then what you'll do is open up these handles, open them up about 90 degrees.

Do the same over here. There you go. Now with them open like that, there's 2 handles right there. What you can do is lift this up, drop it into your underbed Puck System. Once it drops into the Pucks, what you'll do is just close these handles until the holes line up.

Put your pin and clip through there. Do the same over here. Close it until the holes line up, put the pin and clip in. What that does is it locks this base rail into that underbed Power Puck System. Again, the application for this is for Reese Elite Series Underbed Base Rails. Now this will also work with the factory installed 5th wheel towing prep package from Ford.

It does accommodate, you see these slots right here with the holes through there This will accommodate your standard 5th wheel trailer hitches with weight ratings of 15,000 pounds, 16,000 pounds or 20,000 pounds. The max capacity on this part is 20,000 pounds. This does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number RP30156. The Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches with a 20,000 weight capacity. .

Thanks for the help with getting the adapter. This is how the job ended up with the under bed mount and adapter to the standard fifth wheel. 123262


Comments

The adapter has been working great. Gives me the flat floor I wanted and I didnt have to buy a different fifth wheel.

My new F350 didn't have the under bed 5th wheel mount and I didn't want to use the rails that bolt across the bed. I bought the Reese under bed parts, Reese adapter, new legs for the hitch and a bed mat and installed it myself. I drilled through the dimples in the bed, bolted in the under bed parts and everything lined up nice. Since I went from a short bed to a long bed I didn't need the slider legs so I replaced them with fixed legs. When the hitch and adapter are out of the bed, nothing is in the way on the floor. I like it. 243480

Just installed the Reese Rail Adapter in my 2015 Ford F-350. It fits the factory 5th wheel prep package perfectly. The only issue I had was with fine tuning the latches (trial and error) but even so, this was a breeze to install (15-20 minutes). As always the shipping is FAST! I had the kit at my door two days after ordering. 160026

I cannot express to you how happy I was with the ordering process+ the help I got getting the right product. I bought a 5th wheel adapter for my new Ford F350 superduty 8ft. box to fit an older hitch. The adapter plate arrived 2 days after the order was placed. The plate took me 25 min. to install. Thanks for the help! PS Great fit up. 147766

We ordered this for our 2016 Ford F-350. The part comes unassembled, but with instructions that are easy to follow. I did have to adjust after assembly to fit our truck properly. ( The instructions state you may have to adjust ). If you get this I will recommend that you get the wrench, it would have made the adjustments easier. My hitch dropped right in the slots and pinned right in place. NOTE: the pins for the hitch are not included, so order them if you do not have them. The adapter does not rest on the bed, only on the FORD under bed adapter. 233786

Just installed the Reese Underbed Rail Adapter in my 2013 Ford F-350 truck. It fit the factory 5th wheel prep option perfectly. Used it with a Husky EZ Roller Hitch, which I already had, real nice matchup. I ordered the adapter from Etrailer.com, the people there are very friendly and helpful. Got the part in 3 work days. Very happy with the part and the service. 79386

Installed in 2015 F250 with factory prep pkg. Fit was perfect with only minor adjustment to handles needed. Matched up to my DrawTite 5th wheel and Kwik Slide perfectly. Shipping was fast and tracking details were excellent. Etrailer stays on top of the order all the way. 180934

We purchased a new Ford F350 which was equipped with a 5th wheel hitch prep package from Reese. As our Curt hitch was only a year old we had to convert it to the prep package. The adapter made the job easy. 58309

All is working well. It makes it easy to take the hitch in and out so we have use of the bed of the truck.

when pushing lock handles it takes some force, metal digs into palm of hand. maybe they need to put some kind of rubber over the handle. this is a great product, saves a lot of money from buying a new fifth wheel 131137

Very easy to install, I didn't curse or throw a tool putting it together! It really looks good with my old hitch in my new 2012 F-350 Lariat. I haven't towed my RV as of yet, but I will let y'all know how that goes when we go camping next weekend. Attached are some pics. 59638

The frame holes for the hitch tabs were too tight on one side and the opening in the frame needed to be filed in order to accommodate the hitch. Also, I would recommend leaving the Jam Nuts loose until the frame is placed in the bed as it allows for some bed variability and you will never get it right by tightening down everything and then trying to fit it. All in all it provides a very clean hitch adapter for my 2015 ford F250 with the factory Fifth Wheel Prep package. 167383

It was hard to tell from the pictures but this item uses the handles to rotate the locking clevis and is as easily removable as the OEM equipment! The fit was fantastic and assembly only took about 15 minutes. Big savings being able to continue using my Pro series 15k. 35599

I installed the adapter RP30156 into my 2012 F 350, which had the factory 5th wheel prep package. I installed my Husky 16K EZ Roller hitch onto the adapter. I did drop the hitch head down by approximately 2 inches. Overall project went well and I didn't have to buy a new hitch! 40537


Comments

I also have a EZ roller husky hitch and want to make sure it will fit the adapter was yours husky part number 07046 that is the part number I have? Thank youRich

The slots for the tabs that you pin down are 22 inches apart front to back. From left to right, the inner set measure 20-1/2 inches and the outer set measures 29 inches. Check the measurements against the tabs on your Husky Roller and make sure they match up.

I bought this for my husband's 2015 Ford 250 pickup. The product came right away. The installation was easy. He likes the fact that when you take the hitch out that there are no rails on the bed. It is heavy duty, well made, and nicely painted. We have not had an opportunity to use the hitch yet, but so far everything has been great. 186255

The Adapter fit the truck F 350 fine but the hitch didin't fit into the adapter. My Reese hitch was a older slider (1998) and would not allow pins to be installed due to binding. I had to upgade a portion of my slider hitch (side railles) to allow this setup to work. Assembly of the adapter was easy and it was delivered on time. 203714

I got the adapter a day early which I appreciate and it went together rather easy. I didn't have 1-1/2" open end wrench so I had to find one of those buteverything was fine. I haven't tried pulling my RV yet but it should be OK. Thanks for your fine service and friendly sales folks. It was great doing business with you. 61190

eTrailer was great to work with. As a matter of fact I originally order the incorrect part and they replaced it with no penalties. I only had to pay the additional shipping.

I'll have to give this rail adapter a 10+. Assembly was a breeze and with just a minor adjustment, the adapter dropped right in place. Sure beats paying 1600 or more for another 5th wheel hitch when I have one setting in the garage. Thanks again for a great product. 73613

  • Recommended Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ford F250 With Ford Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Package
  • There are two available alternatives. You can use a 5th wheel hitch that's designed to drop right into the pucks, or you can use an adapter that sits in the pucks and provides industry standard bed rails for a standard 5th wheel hitch to attach to. First the puck mounts. If you have the short bed, you'll want to use a sliding hitch, like the Reese Elite Series Slider, part # RP30144 which will drop right into the pucks. The hitch has an 18K capacity. For a long bed truck, use the stationary...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-250
  • If the 2016 Ford F-250 has the factory hitch prep package you would only need the part # RP30156 so that you could install your Reese 16k hitch. If your new truck does not have the hitch prep package you would need a rail kit designed for your truck. For that you would want the part # DM8552000-71. This is a custom install rail kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing a 36 ft Layton Toy Hauler
  • Anytime you have the choice between a gooseneck hitch and a fifth wheel hitch to pull a fifth wheel trailer, I always recommend a fifth wheel hitch. The fifth wheel hitch will provide more clearance between your truck and trailer, especially when making sharp turns with your truck. The fifth wheel hitch will also provide more stability for the truck and trailer when towing. With a fifth wheel hitch, the king pin on the trailer can attach directly to the hitch. With a gooseneck hitch,...

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • Under Bed Rails and Parts Needed to Install Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500

If you think you might need to tow a gooseneck trailer sometime in the future, you might consider the # RP30158-68 which includes an integrated gooseneck hitch, which will give you the full flexibility to tow anything.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty With Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • Since your 2015 F-350 Super Duty has the factory 5th wheel prep package you'll want to use the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 which is shown in the linked video. This adapter accommodates standard 5th-wheel trailer hitches with weight ratings of 15,000 lbs, 16,000 lbs, or 20,000 lbs. You can still use your 25K-rated hitch but the system capacity will be 20,000-lbs overall. I've linked for your reference an article on 5th wheel installation tips.

  • Mounting a Pullrite SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch # 2700 in a 2014 F-250 With 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • You are correct. The Pullrite SuperGlide Fifth Wheel Hitch, # 2700, requires the industry standard above bed base rails to mount in a truck bed. The Reese Elite Series Adapter, # RP30156, provides the mounting slots for fifth hitches that use industry standard base rails on Ford Super Duty trucks with the OEM fifth wheel prep package. The SuperGlide hitch will use the inner mounting slots (see photo) on the adapter. This adapter is not permanently installed in your truck, so you can...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package
  • The king pin is the large pin on the trailer. For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit the 2012 Ford F-250 with the factory prep package you have a couple of options. First, the prep package was designed for use with the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches. If you have a long bed truck use # RP30142 with an 18k capacity or # RP30143 with a 25k capacity. If you have a short bed then you will need a slider, # RP30144, with an 18k capacity. The other option is to use an adapter,...

  • How to Identify if a Truck has Reese Elite or Signature Series Rail Kit Installed
  • Check out the picture I attached that shows the dimensions of what Reese Elite or Signature Series pucks would be in the bed of a truck like yours. If you measure the center to center distance of the pucks, and they come out to be 13 by 30 inches, they are Reese Elite rails that would be compatible with the Reese Elite 18K hitch # RP30142 or the 25K model, part # RP30143. If you wished to use a different hitch that's compatible with industry standard bed rails, an adapter is available,...

  • Underbed Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually Denali
  • I checked with Reese and the underbed Elite series kit # RP30158-68 is listed as a fit for the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500. It being a dually and a Denali will not be a factor. I have linked the installation instructions for you. The adapter you would need for your 5th wheel hitch is # RP30156. I have linked a video review of the adapter for you.

For the under-bed system to be able to work with standard fifth wheel hitches, the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, part # RP30156 needs to be used.

  • Will the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter work with a Ford OEM 5th Wheel Prep Kit and Reese Slider
  • The Reese Mounting Adapter Rail Kit, # RP30156, will work with the Reese 18K square tube slider hitch, # RP30084, in the Ford tow prep kit that is in your 2012 F-450. Since you now have an 8 foot bed you will most likely have no need for the slider function of the # RP30084 hitch. This means you can just leave the hitch in the towing position all the time, or, if noise is an issue with the slider portion of the hitch, you can replace the slider unit with standard legs, # RP30727. The...

  • Will a Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156
  • The Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156, will accept standard 5th wheel trailer hitches that fit in above the bed rails. The mounting slots on the adapter are spaced approximately 22 inches apart on center, front to back. And side to side there are 2 sets of slots. The inner most set measure is 20-1/2 inches apart on center and the outer set is 29 inches apart on center. If your hitch fits in standard above the bed rails and the measurements I have provided match up to...

  • Adapting PullRite 3300 Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch to 2015 Ford F250 w/ OEM Tow Prep Package
  • If your PullRite 3300 is the ISR model that's compatible with Industry Standard Bed Rails, you would be able to use the # RP30156 adapter. For the gooseneck ball, you'd just need the Reese # RP30137. If your hitch is the Traditional model, I'm not aware of a solution we offer that would allow the hitch to work with the in-bed pucks. The best practice is to use a fifth wheel hitch for a fifth wheel trailer, and a gooseneck hitch for a gooseneck trailer. Using adapters to tow a Fifth Wheel...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2012 Ford F250 w/ Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Kit
  • Because your F250 is not a long bed model, I would highly recommend you go with the Reese Elite Series w/ Slider, part # RP30144. Although the current trailer you are looking at has a v-type nose on it that might work okay with the # RP30142 and have proper clearance for making turns, having the sliding hitch would allow you more flexibility in the event you switched to a different fifth wheel in the future. Both the Reese Elite Series w/ Slider # RP30144 and the non-sliding model,...

  • Can I Mount an Old 5th Wheel Hitch In 2011 Ford F-350 with Hitch Prep Option
  • There is a mounting adapter available you can use to mount your existing fifth-wheel hitch in your 2011 Ford F-350 with underbed hitch prep package. Checkout the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter, part # RP30156. This adapter will allow you to mount non-elite series fifth-wheel hitches to hitch prep option in your Ford F-350. Before this adapter was available, the Elite Series hitches were the only hitches that would work with the hitch prep option from Ford. The reason is because the...

  • Installing Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2014 Ford F350 Dually w/ Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck towing Prep Pkg
  • Since you have the pucks pre-installed, you won't need the install kit or anything else. You would simply remove the covers over the pucks in your truck bed and drop in an Elite Series fifth wheel hitch like the # RP30142 for an 18K capacity or the # RP30143 for a 25K capacity. B&W also offers the Companion, part # BWRVK3300 which has a 20K capacity that would also drop right into the pucks installed in your truck bed. An adapter like the # RP30156 would allow you to use a regular fifth...

  • Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 w/ Factory Puck System Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer
  • Although the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, will not work with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156, I do have a solution for you. Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit, # RP30138, in your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory puck system. This offers a bolt-in, no drill installation which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your truck. Just one hole in the bed for the gooseneck...

  • Will a Pullrite 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit the Ford Factory Prep Package on a 2014 Ford F-450
  • If your Pullrite hitch is the type that fits in industry standard above the bed rails then you could use it in the Reese adapter # RP30156. But if it is a SuperGlide or otherwise does not fit in above the red rails that run across the width of the bed then there is currently no adapter available unless Pullrite makes one. The other option is to use the adapter and a compatible hitch such as the Reese Select Plus, # RP30081 rated for 20K. Or you could skip the adapter and use a Reese...

  • Is Adapter Required To Install Fifth Wheel Hitch On 2014 Ford F350 Short Bed w/Tow Prep Package
  • For your 2014 Ford F-350 Short Bed Pickup With the tow package and underbed rails, I recommend the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Hitch, part # RP30144. This fits right into the Ford in bed puck system, and eliminates the need for an adapter. This slider fifth-wheel hitch adjusts from 16 to 18 inches in height and the slider travels 10 inches front to back. Another option is the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider, part # RP30083 will work with an adapter....

  • To use your Draw-Tite 20K fifth wheel hitch with the factory fifth wheel package on your 2013 Ford F-350, you will need to use the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156. The factory fifth wheel package that Ford uses is the Reese Elite Series underbed fifth wheel/gooseneck rails. This adapter will fit into the pucks in your truck bed. I have attached a link to the installation instructions as well as a photo of this adapter installed on a Ford Super Duty truck.

  • Will Reese 5th Wheel Rails Work with a Demco HiJacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • There is a version of the Demco HiJacker 5th wheel hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails but it does not look like yours is one of them. Yours looks like it fits the below the bed system so it would not work with the Reese rails. There isn't a Demco below the bed installation kit for your 2006 Nissan Titan that will work. So what I recommend is a new hitch and installation kit. Since your truck has the 6-1/2 foot bed you will likely need a slider to be able to make...
