Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel RP30081 Review

Today were going to review part number RP30081. This is the Reese Select Plus Single-Jaw Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the fixed legs. Has a 20,000-pound weight capacity. This hitch uses the Forged, single-piece, self-latching jaw which will provide absolute security with its wrap-around design. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact will result not only in stronger connection, but less rattle and movement as well. Has a convenient lock indicator on the hitch handle, which will ensure that the hookup is complete and secure before you can lock your trailer to your hitch.

Basically I just want to show you how that operates. If we pull out the pin and clip, the indicator will fall into place. If you pull out on the handle, there is the single jaw, you can watch it open up. If you pull up, itll lock into place. Jaw stays open, now its ready for the king pin to slide up in there.

Right down here, theres a little tab on inaudible 00:01:01 you might be able to see, and that is when the king pin slides into the hitch and pushes onto that tab, it will actually move this indicator. Let me move this so youll be able to see the indicator weve been talking about right over here. Once the king pin is in there, it will push this tab open, which will then allow you to lock the handles. So basically the handles goes, the jaw will close and wrap around the king pin, it will push in on that indicator which will move this lever open, and you can just drop your pin and clip in there, clip it, and that will lock the handle and keep the handle locked so jaw would not open, keeps the king pin in position. The hole is large enough; you can use a padlock for addition security.

We do sell those separately. Now this hitch does use the newer style elite series head, which is a tough, heavy-duty stamped steel head thats used on the elite series hitches, which are usually a little more expensive. It is a four-way pivoting head, as you can see, side-to-side it pivots six degrees and it also moves front-to-back. With it pivoting like that it makes it fast and easy hookup, even on unlevel ground. This head does also have a Zerk fitting here, which might be hard to see, that you can actually put a grease gun on, squirt grease in there, and itll come out underneath and lubricate any of the moving parts on the head.

Also, this head has the nine-inch wide funnel, rather than traditional, six-inch wide funnel. The nine-inch funnel will provide larger area for guiding king pin into hitch. Has the extended-length, lockable handle, lets you easily secure trailer to the hitch with padlock like we mentioned. Has the indicator that we showed you, keeps the hitch from locking until connection is secure. Now also I want to show you if I rotate this to the side, if you look at the crossmember, there are four sets of holes drilled in this crossmember and that is for the hitch height adjustment. Basically there is a four-inch range that you want the height to be correctly above your truck bed. So if you put these bolts and install the hitch in the very top bolts, that would be the lowest height, that would be 14 inches. It would measure 14 inches above your truck bed. If you drop it down to the holes on the bottom, which would be the highest, that would be 18 inches. So 14-to-18 inches, you have a four-inch height adjustment. This does come with the one-piece wide stance legs for stability. Now for this video I actually have the hitch and the legs installed in base rails already that have the mounting brackets on the side. Now those are sold separately, they are not included with this part number. You would need to get the correct base rails and the correct mounting brackets for your application. Now on the mounting brackets that mount to your frame or your truck bed, we do recommend to use the custom-fit ones, and the reason for that is most of them are designed to use existing holes in your trailer frame, so it minimizes the amount of drilling, and it will cut the installation time in half compared to using the universal installation kit. This hitch will fit Curt, Valley, Draw-Tite, Hidden-Hitch, and Reese rails. This is a steel hitch which has a black powder coat finish which will resist corrosion. It is made in the USA. A few specs on it: it has a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds, has a vertical load limit of 5,000 pounds. Again, the hitch height adjustment is from 14 inches to 18 inches. It does come with a five-year limited warrantee. I just want to rotate it to show you any of the features you might want to see. Heres the indicator and the hitch handle we were talking about. Heres the very back of it. And that should do it for the review on part number RP30081.

I think has excellent customer service, Dana got my new hitch out the same day I ordered it. The only problem with this product was the lack of directions from Reese. I had to call e-trailer customer service to make sure I put it together correctly, Bill answered all my questions.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Fifth Wheel
Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are doing the right thing by doing the research first. There is a lot of conflicting information out there so let me break it down for you. Basically, if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, the best trucks are going to be long bed 3/4 or 1 tons like a Ford F-250/F-350, Chevy/GMC 2500/3500, or Ram 2500/3500. Half ton trucks could work but are not nearly as capable as the larger trucks. A long bed for sure is something you will want. Having a long bed means that you will not need...

  • Minimum Truck Bed Length for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer Without Cab and Loft Clearance Issues
  • The minimum bed length for towing a fifth-wheel trailer with a standard fifth-wheel hitch, see link, is 8 feet. A 6-1/2 inch bed like the Silverado Extended Cab you mentioned can be used along with a slider style fifth-wheel hitch, see link, that requires you to remember to get out of the truck and move a handle to slide the hitch rearward when tight parking and campground situations are encountered. Once ready to go back out on the road the hitch will need to be moved forward, requiring...

  • Tips for Choosing the Best Truck to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Staring with the truck series itself, I would go with a 3/4 ton or 1 ton. Ultimately a 1-ton would be better. Between gas and diesel I would choose a diesel if it were me. They are capable of more power and torque than gas motors. The cab style does not matter all that much but the bed size does. You will want to avoid a step side bed and a Dodge model that has a Rambox feature because they cannot have a 5th wheel hitch installed. Long beds are the way to go. A short bed can cause issues...

  • What Size Truck is Recommended for Towing a 16,000 Pound 5th Wheel Trailer
  • While there is not a specific truck size required, to maximize towing capacity and minimize wear and tear on the drive train of the truck, I would recommend a full size, 3/4 ton truck like the Ford F-250, Chevy or GMC 2500, or Dodge Ram 2500 Series. I would recommend a truck with the 8 foot bed if possible, which would eliminate the need for a sliding hitch or a replacement pin box for the fifth wheel. That is not to say that other trucks are incapable so you will need to check the...

  • How Do I Install Fifth Wheel Rails in The Bed of My Pickup
  • The rails in the bed of your pickup are installed so that the king pin will be just forward of the rear axle when hitched. The mounting location is vehicle specific and if you would like to provide your trucks year, make, model bed length and cab style I would be glad to get instructions to you and make a recommendation for an installation kit for your truck. When mounting a fifth wheel hitch the first measurement you use is the distance from the farthest back part of the bed, tailgate...

  • Adjusting Height of Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The head portion of the Reese 18K Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch is height adjustable from 14 to 18 inches above the floor of the truck bed. To raise the head, remove the bolts that attach it to the support legs of the hitch, and reattach using the upper holes. For safety, you will need at least 6 inches of clearance between the top of the truck side rails and the bottom of the trailer loft. I have included a link to the installation details below.

  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. A fifth wheel adapter that bolts onto the king pin, such as Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G...

  • Best Way to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Tow Prep Package
  • In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed. You have several hitch options that will work, but my favorite is the B&W Companion 25K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. This hitch will drop right into the pucks in the truck bed and once it is removed, you will have full access to your bed. Curt also makes fifth wheel hitches for the...

  • A 5th Wheel Trailer Needs to be Towed Level by Adjusting the Kingpin and/or the 5th Wheel Hitch
  • What you will do is park the truck and trailer on level ground. Using the landing gear/jacks on the 5th wheel to make it level, then measure from the ground to the bottom of the pin box skid plate, not the king pin, and record the measurement. Next measure from the ground to the top of the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch and record it. Adjust either the height of the 5th wheel head or the king pin on the trailer or both to get the measurements as close to the same as you can. If...

  • Some Guidelines for Choosing Fifth Wheel Hitch for Fifth Wheel Camper with 9000 lb Dry Weight
  • I would recommend choosing a fifth wheel hitch with your future needs in mind. All fifth wheel hitches do the same thing, retain the trailer king pin. The differences between hitches amount to their weight capacities, the features offered or the method of mounting to the truck. The lowest capacity hitch we offer is a 15K, like the Pro Series, part # PS30093. This hitch would work for you, as your trailer is unlikely to weigh more than that when fully loaded. If you might want to upgrade...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch or Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation
  • Personally I like the Reese (Draw Tite) fifth wheel hitches more than the Curts. The Curt hitches are great hitches, but in our experiences here we have found that the Reese hitches tend to be a bit more durable. For a 20k hitch that I can guarantee you will be happy with I would recommend the Reese Select Hitch part # RP30081. The jaw design on this hitch is a forged, single-piece, self-latching jaw that wraps around the king pin to ensure proper connection. This design offers superior...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Compatible with Reese Revolution
  • The Reese Revolution is the OEM version of their aftermarket Sidewinder. Lets begin with the Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch, part # C16130. Curt makes a great hitch, and I really like the spherical axial bearing they use to allow full 360 degree tilting movement. The double jaw used in the hitch grabs the fifth wheel king pin from all sides, reducing rattle and chucking. The built-in cushioning further reduces how the rattling and chucking is transferred to the vehicle. However, it is this...

  • Compatibility of a Reese Revolution Pin Box With a SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact for Reese and he said it is not recommended to use your Reese Revolution pin box with your SuperGlide. It is possible to lockout the turret of your pin box and remove the wedge allowing the pin box to rotate at the hitch, however, if the sidewinder sits below the top of your bed rails, then the pin box can hit and damage your truck bed while sliding or pivoting. You will also have to attach a capture plate to your pin box to allow the pin box to rotate at the hitch....

  • Comparing the Curt Q24 and Reese R20 and 20K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • The lube plate that comes with Curt 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16245 is 10 inch lube plate # 16721. It is a standard plastic lube plate. The Reese 20K hitch # RP30081 has a superior jaw. It is a single jaw that hooks around the king pin. The jaw on the Curt hitch is a double jaw. Still very secure though. And Reese 20K hitch # RP30867 has a double jaw as well but it has gear-like teeth that make a more secure connection than other dual-jaw hitches. For ride quality the Curt hitch...

  • Suitability of Older Trucks for Towing Fifth Wheels
  • Due to the myriad of different equipment packages GM offered, finding the towing capacity of a given vehicle is not as easy as you would think. I did some research on the towing capacities of those mid 80's GM trucks. I found that as a general rule, the K series 4wd trucks has lower capacities than the C series 2wd models. I saw several references stating that a C series could tow up to 12,000 lbs or maybe more, depending how it was equipped. The best way to determine the towing capacity...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 Dual Rear Wheel Pickup
  • If your 2013 Ram 3500 has an 8-foot bed with the Factory Rail Kit you can use one of the three 5th wheel hitches shown on the link provided. 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.

Other than that, the hitches are very similar, and they are both capable of towing up to 20,000 pounds if your Silverado is rated for a trailer that large.

  • How to Adjust the Height of a 5th Wheel Hitch to tow a Raptor 300MP Trailer Level
  • It is difficult to determine the proper height of your Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch for your Raptor 300MP toy hauler without having access to your trailer because we do not know how high the bottom of the pin box sits off of the ground when the trailer is level. To determine proper hitch height we recommend measuring from the ground to the bottom of the pin box at the king pin when your trailer is unhooked and level. Next, adjust the height of your hitch to match that measurement from...

  • Using Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter on Receiver Hitch
  • The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter you mentioned, part # CAB-C5G is meant to convert a truck bed mounted gooseneck hitch for use with a fifth wheel trailer. It cannot be used with a trailer ball mounted to a draw bar installed into a rear mounted receiver hitch. Your best bet would be to install a fifth wheel hitch in your truck bed. You would want to choose a fifth wheel hitch whose weight capacity exceeds the fully loaded and ready to tow weight of your fifth...

  • Can I Haul Fifth-Wheel or Gooseneck Trailer With 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 5.5 Ft. Short Bed 2WD Crew Cab
  • For a fifth wheel hitch, we do have applications for the 5.5 ft. bed of the 2010 GMC Sierra 1500, but use of a Sidewinder King Pin is required for clearance. A Sidewinder King Pin will move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 Inches which will give you additional clearance needed to make turns (see Sidewinder FAQ).

  • Should I Build my Boat Trailer as a Gooseneck or 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Some people prefer the fifth wheel hitch over the goose neck as it spreads the weight out in the bed of your truck a little more than the gooseneck does. To determine if your truck could handle towing your boat and trailer I would recommend consulting the owners manual of your 2009 Dodge Ram 3500. It would also be easier to hitch up to a fifth wheel hitch because its easier to back up to and hitch up to a fifth wheel than it is a gooseneck. The reason for that is that you have limited...

It's not always evident what a truck's max capacity is, even by reading the owner's manual, but if you look at the ratings sticker on the driver's side door jamb, you can get an accurate statement of the truck's towing abilities. On the sticker, look for the Gross Combined Weight Rating, GWCR which is the maximum amount the truck plus the fully loaded trailer can weigh. From that, subtract the GVW, which represents...

  • What Type of Grease Is Recommended for Fith Wheel Hitches
  • As a general all-purpose Fifth Wheel Grease, I recommend the UltraLube Biobased Fifth Wheel Grease, part # L10337. Two of the packets would simply be placed on the fifth wheel hitch plate on either side of the funnel, then hitch the trailer. The grease packets will burst on their own. I prefer the Nylon lube plates from Draw-Tite for the head surface, part # RP83001. If you use the lube plate, you can avoid using grease.

  • Towing Capacity of 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD

If you subtract the GVW from the GCVR, the result will be a close approximation of the maximum trailer weight your vehicle can safely tow. The GCVR and GVW are typically listed on...

  • Raising Height of Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gain Clearance and a Level Tow for a 2011 Keystone Cougar
  • In my experience, raising the trailer should be carefully considered. Usually going up an inch or two is not too problematic, but at 5 inches I would be concerned about making the trailer top-heavy. It would be best to first adjust the height of the hitch, as well as the height of the pin box to try to level the trailer with the tow vehicle. To allow for uneven terrain, a minimum of 6 inches of clearance between the top of the truck side rails and the bottom of the trailer loft is...

  • Hitch/Pin Box Recommendation to Reduce Chucking on 2006 Montana 5th Wheel Towed By 2014 GMC Sierra
  • Given that the GVW of the fifth wheel is almost 16K, you should be okay with a 16K hitch. You'll want to be sure to not exceed the capacity of your hitch. The chucking and slop you're experiencing is more a function of the fit between the hitch jaws and the king pin, rather than the capacity of the hitch itself. An entry level hitch like the Pro Series # PS30130 hitch uses a slide bar jaw that holds the king pin securely enough that it won't come free of the hitch, but the fit isn't...

The Reese fifth-wheel hitch # RP30081 would be a good choice for your application, and this can be installed using custom fifth-wheel rail installation kit # RP50066-58, which will mount to the existing holes in your truck frame.

Beds shorter than 6 feet require the addition of a Sidewinder replacement pin box for the fifth-wheel trailer you will be towing.
