Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter Review

Video Transcript for Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30156. This is the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for standard fifth wheel trailer hitches. This part is designed to work with an already installed Reese Signature Series Fifth Wheel Underbody kit. You can see we have four pucks installed here. inaudible 00:00:22 vehicle, we have them sit inside of the bed liner as well. Typically you would have to make a large cut out for it.

However in this truck and this part, we we're able to just get away with just four small holes and it sits on top of the bed liner, with plenty of clearance. Once it's assembled, it's very easy to install. Just make sure these handles are pointing towards the center, and when they're locked you can see how this turns facing to the puck that's installed in the truck. Just lay it into place, and then make sure these handles are open all the way, to make sure that it's set into place. Then push the handles in. There should be some resistance as you push it in.

Once it's in place, use the snap rings to help lock it. You could also use your favorite padlock if you want to. When you assemble this, it's a good idea to get access to the jam nut right here to help make sure everything is tightened down properly. The part number for the wrench we're using is 58276. With our Underbed Rail Adapter installed, let's go ahead and put the fifth wheel hitch into place.

After we put our fifth wheel hitch into place, we'll go ahead and install the pins and clips. So our hitch will mount up to our adapter plate just like it would if it had rails already installed in the bed going across. That will finish it for review of part number RP30156 from Reese. .

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

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

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.

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.

  • Will Superglide #4400 5th Wheel Frame Brackets Work with Other Brands of Fixed Mount Hitches

The reason is that neither the manufacturer of your under-bed brackets (Superglide) nor the manufacturer of any other fixed 5th wheel hitch and base rails will have tested their components with those from the other company. The result of this would be a combined system of unconfirmed capacity. For this reason we cannot recommend combining towing components not designed for use...

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Towing Options for 2012 Ford F250 Short Bed W/ Ford Factory Tow Prep Pkg
  • For the 6 foot 8 inch truck bed, you would need either use a sliding fifth wheel hitch or install a Reese Sidewinder in place of your existing pin box on your fifth wheel. If you don't use a sliding hitch, the front corners of the trailer loft can contact the rear of cab during turns. Which can be hard on the trailer as well as the truck.
