4-Way-Pivoting Head with Rounded-Slide-Bar System

This fifth-wheel trailer hitch features a 4-way-pivoting head to provide a full range of motion for easy trailer hookup. The fifth wheel can be easily removed by one person - simply remove two pins and two clips.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch Review

Today we are going to show you the Pro Series line of fifth wheel hitches. The Pro Series family of fifth wheels is a great way for people new to the fifth wheeling hobby to get into it without investing a whole lot of money. They are also a nice fit for a budget conscious fifth wheel tower. The Pro Series fifth wheel hitches are available in 15000 15K, 16000 16K, and 20000 20K pound capacities. All of these hitches include the basic functions and features needed to properly tow a fifth wheel trailer. 00:26

First up is the Pro Series 15K pound head. This head features a four-way pivot both front to back and the top plate goes side to side. The side to side pivot allows a full five degrees for easy hook up even on uneven ground. The 15K Pro Series also uses a less expensive slide bar stop to lock the king pin into the head. Next we have the Pro Series 16K head. This head is a fully floating head that provides plenty of movement side to side and front to back. This will help the fifth wheel track easier when traveling and it also makes hook up very easy. It features the same slide bar latching mechanism as the 15K but it features a fully floating head. The fully floating head will allow the fifth wheel to track a little bit easier, make hooking and unhooking the trailer easy. 01:16

Finally we have the Pro Series 20K pound head. Again the head is fully floating but this time with the increased capacity we also use double locking jaws. The double locking jaws provide more contact around the king pin and will help reduce noise. It also features a lockable latch. The latch allows you to secure and lock the jaws to prevent them from coming open when traveling. The Pro Series family of fifth wheel hitches uses traditional above bed fifth wheel rails to attach to the truck. The height of the head is adjustable from 13 to 17 inches. This includes a three year warranty. There is also a Pro Series slider kit available part number RP30092. The Pro Series family of hitches includes a 15K pound hitch part number PS30093, a 16K pound hitch part number PS30089, as well as a 20K pound hitch part number PS30119.

The hitch installed like a breeze - in less time than anticipated.. it helps that my hubby is a mechanic and knew what to do! It worked great in our Dodge 2500 Ram Diesel and pulled the 31ft Fifth Wheel. Hooking up the camper is a breeze! So glad I found your site... many more camping trips on the schedule. 38128

I found that the 5th wheel rails and frame mounts were easy to install. I would refer etrailer to anyone that ask about hitchs. I was very please with your service. It took only 6 days for my order to get from Mo. to Nv. It took only about 3hours to install that was because my truck had a bed liner. I am very please with your service. John 8807

Price is what made this product great. The best part was your youtube installation video for my application. It made it so simple compared to the mfg generic instructions. The only fault I found was the video used conical washers through out and the mfg only supplied 6 and the rest was flat washers. Really no big deal but I have this curse, I am a perfectionest.63033

  • Will the Pro Series Reese 15K 5th Wheel Hitch Fit in Reese Trailboss Rails
  • The # PS30093, 15K Fifth Wheel Hitch by Reese will fit into your standard rails as long as they are in good working condition and installed correctly. You should not need any other accessories for the fifth wheel to install. It comes with the pull pins and spring cotter pins to install to your rails. If you need rails and an installation kit for your truck then let me know the year, make and model and I will make a recommendation for you.

  • The Pro Series 15K Fifth Wheel Hitch, part # PS30093, will fit your 2000 Ford F-350 Dually. The installation kit that I would recommend to install the Pro Series Hitch in your vehicle will be the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, part # RP50082-58. This kit includes the brackets and base rails and is a custom installation kit which will mount to existing holes on your frame can be installed in half the time of the universal installation kit.

  • Parts Needed to Move Fifth-Wheel Hitch to a 2010 Dodge 3500 Crew Cab Dually
  • If your 15K Reese Pro Series fifth-wheel included the universal rail installation kit and you are just wanting to move the universal kit into your new truck, replacement hardware for the kit would be part # 58164. You will also need to replace two of the frame brackets with part # RP58186. To move your current fifth wheel to your 2010 Dodge 3500, you could also install fifth-wheel rail kit # 50140-58. You would not need additional spacers or adapters, as this kit is custom fit to the 2010

  • The Reese Pro Series 15K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, # PS30093, is the most economical fitment for your 2005 Ford F150. On your 2005 Ford F150 I would recommend the Reese 20K Select Plus Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider, # RP30084, which is the best if you do a lot of towing. It is a very smooth, no rattle hitch. The smaller 16K and 18K hitches are not as smooth as the 20K hitch. You would also need a Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Kit with Brackets and Rails - For

This rail kit will install onto your 1981 Ford F-250 and is compatible with your Reese Trail Boss Fifth Wheel Hitch. I attached installation instructions below as well as an installation video on a similar truck as yours for you to check out also.

  • 5th Wheel Rail and Bracket Install Kit and Hitch for a 1993 Ford F-250 Towing a 25 ft Trailer
  • The correct fifth-wheel installation kit for your 1993 Ford F-250 is the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit, item # RP30035. This kit works with all Reese fifth-wheel hitches and would work great with the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 16,000 lbs, item # RP30047. Make sure that the hitch you purchase is rated high enough for the gross weight of your trailer loaded and ready to tow.

  • Installation Kit Recommendation for a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and 1993 Ford F-250
  • It does not sound like you have all of the correct hardware because there should be bolts on both sides of both rails. I am not sure how comfortable I would be with a used installation kit so I would go ahead and pop for a new one. Another reason to replace the install kit is if you are unsure of the brand of rails and they are not the same as the underbed brackets that attach to the frame, we do not recommend using them together. Plus you will get all new parts, installation instructions, a

  • 5th Airborne Cushioned Pin Box Recommendation to Reduce Clunking
  • At this time we do not sell a lockout kit that would prevent this Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # PS30093, from pivoting side to side. If you are looking for something to help reduce the noise and clunking that you sometimes encounter when using a fifth wheel hitch I would recommend that you get a cushioned pin box like a Fifth Airborne Cushioned pin box. The Fifth Airbornes are pin box specific, check out the chart that is on the FAQ article I linked below to see which one you

The minimum clearance from the top of your truck bed rails to your trailer should be at least 6 inches. You will need to purchase the installation and rail kit separately. If you can send me the year, make, and model of your vehicle, I can recommend the correct install kit. I have linked an FAQ on 5th Wheel

  • Sidewinder Recommendation for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2005 Ford F150 with 5.5 ft Bed
  • You are correct, for bed lengths that are shorter than 6 feet you will want to use a Sidewinder in conjunction with a fifth wheel hitch on your 2005 F-150 5.4 liter SuperCrew with a 5.5 ft bed. I attached an FAQ on Sidewinders for you to check, but once you have the correct Sidewinder installed on your fifth wheel trailer you would be good to pull it with your F-150. Sidewinders are pin box specific, so you will need to know the pin box model you have and then reference the chart in the FA

I spoke with my contact at Reese and he stated that the Trail Boss is compatible with the square tube slider # RP30048. I have included a link to the installation details for the slider as well.

  • What is the Proper Height Between 2011 Ford Pickup Bed Rails and Trailer Loft for Safe Towing
  • The hitch height for the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # PS30093, is adjustable from 13 to 17 inches above the truck bed. I attached a photo showing the adjustment holes for you to see. When adjusting the hitch, you should have at least 6 inches of space between the top of the truck bed rails and the bottom of the trailer loft for adequate clearance when navigating steep inclines and deep dips. The 6 inches leaves room so that when in a turn and a dip or incline is encountered the trail

The hitch you referenced would require the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 for installation, but is still a very economical way to go. I have included links to the installation instructions for the adapter kit and a video review of the hitch. If you would prefer a fifth wheel that requires no adapter, I recom

In a separate email I have forwarded the installation instructions for the 20K head # 30118.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 1998 Chevy K1500 4x4
  • First, for the weight capacity, you will want to consult your vehicle owners manual. The gross combined vehicle weight rating is the most amount of weight that the truck and trailer can weigh together and that includes being loaded and with passengers, fuel, and so on. There should also be a gross trailer weight rating which is the most a trailer can weigh when loaded and ready to tow. The pay load should be how much weight you can put in the truck bed.

  • Slide Bar on Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Will Not Close when Using a Sidewinder Pin Box
  • The Pro Series 5th wheel hitch, # PS30093, is compatible with a Sidewinder. The issue could still be the universal wedge. I recommend removing the wedge and see if it hooks up fine without it. Then you should be able to get the wedge in place with a little persuasion. A Sidewinder king pin has the same standard size king pin found on any other 5th wheel trailer so the only difference is the wedge. The wedge can be oriented a few different ways like you have said so it may just be an issue of

The PS30093 hitch you referenced could cause issues with clearance between the trailer and cab of your truck when making tight turns. I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part # RP50082-58 for your truck. This is a custom kit designed specifically for your truck and requires no drilling of the truck frame. This kit would cut the in

  • Will a Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch Work on a 2010 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • Yes you can. In fact, a fixed fifth wheel hitch and a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box is recommended for trucks with beds shorter than 6 ft. The Pro Series 15K Fixed Fifth Wheel Hitch, # PS30093, and Custom Install Kit, # RP50081-58, will fit your truck and it is a good economical option. I would not recommend using a sliding fifth wheel hitch with a Revolution pin box because that will extend the pin weight of the trailer too far back on the truck.

All are rated for 20K and all require use of the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter, part # RP30154, in order to work with the RAM OEM under-bed rail kit. Please note that none of these hitches can be used in trucks with a flare-side or step-side bed. The three hitches differ in their features.
