Reese Gooseneck - RP30138-26

Designed specifically for your Ford F-250/F-350/F-450, this gooseneck hitch uses Reese's Elite Series under-bed rail system for a custom fit. Pop-In ball is easy to lock in place and easy to remove for full, unobstructed access to truck bed.

  • Under-bed design ensures full access to truck bed
    • Included rails and installation kit also work with Reese Elite Series 5th-wheel trailer hitches
      • Adapter kit RP58419 required for use with Signature Series hitches
  • Bolt-in, no-drill installation
  • Pop-In ball fits securely and is easy to insert and remove
    • Lift and turn integrated lever to unlock and remove ball

Pop-In Ball

Designed especially for your newer Ford Super Duty, this under-bed gooseneck hitch provides superior towing capability along with a variety of unique features. The included Pop-In ball uses an integrated, easy-to-access lever to activate the ball-bearing locking system, securing the ball in the hitch. Quickly remove the ball using the same lever and get absolute, uninhibited use of your truck bed. Because this hitch installs in Reese's Elite Series under-bed rails, all that you will be left with upon removal of the ball and safety chain loops are the ball hole and the small Power Puck cavities in your truck-bed floor - no rails, no bolts. And the included rails also fit Reese Elite Series and Signature Series fifth-wheel hitches (sold separately) for ultimate towing versatility.

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


My Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch arrived UPS. 143lbs and used a hand dolly to take off the truck and wheel to my garage. Came packaged ok. Pre-assembled and everything was included. Read the Manual, which for older people helps, showing lube and parts, install info etc...referring back to the manual/instructions. Used a wooden table(same height as my tailgate) to wheel it right up to the gate and slid the hitch on a piece of cardboard(from the box) into the position of the puck system. Moving the base first then the hitch plate next. The hitch install was simple and easy. Did not need any help. I did call customer service and made a slight 1/4 turn adjustment to two legs for a tighter fit. There again referring to the manual/instructions provided with the hitch. Very pleased with the hitch over all. It served its purpose and I believe will give us many years of service. We pull a 5th wheel gvwr of 11769lbs and completed over 1200 miles of safe towing. Pleased with my purchase. Thank you. 159385

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


I have installed this hitch 4 times. It is a solid piece. With a little care in the mounting adjustments, there are no rattles or noises, even when the camper is not connected. The only problem I have is the instructions indicated drilling 4 3" inch holes in the bed. A 2 1/4" set of holes is more appropriate. They leave too much room for installation error. I mount the rails below and use a pointed bolt from the bottom to mark the hole location to drill the bed. Other than that - I think this is a great hitch. 125537

Fantastic! I would recommend this hitch to anyone who wants a quality product.

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


Item was received well packaged. All parts were received as expected. I wish I would have taken pictures of box when it was received or as I installed it on my 2015 F250 but rest assured it fit into my Ford with the 5th wheel prep package quite easily. Directions were adequate. My only issue was I did not know if the pre-asembly of the base was torqued correctly. There was no mention of it in the packaging and I do not own a torque wrench so it would have been comforting to know that it was done properly before shipment. However it appeared to be okay and I had no issues towing my 5th wheel the 15 miles from the dealership to my home. Also there is no mention prior to ordering that you need lithium grease to properly lube the moving parts. Make sure you have on hand prior to assembly. Overall, excellent product and I am definitely please with it and highly recommend it. 203214

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


The Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit was perfect fit for my 2014 RAM 3500 with the factory installed gooseneck prep kit. Once it arrived, my wife and I had no problem installing and removing any of the components from the kit. Being able to put all parts in the handy carrying bag is a bonus to. As for etrailer.com, delivery was faster than expected and much appreciated. The video and reviews on the website for this product (not to mention the price) were the main reasons why I purchased this product and purchased it from etrailer.com. If I had one con, it would be that ball hitch needs a sleeve to protect it from being dinged or scratched in the carrying bag, but no big deal. Thanks etrailer.com! 178262

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


This hitch looks well made and thought out. Connecting it to the bed of my Super Duty is a snap with the cam locks. I love how I have a flat bed when it's removed due to the Ford under bed fifth wheel rail kit. I'd buy it again. My only two minor negatives are: 1. It's a heavy beast. Much more than my old hitch. It pushed me to buying an overhead hoist for the garage, which makes putting in and taking out the hitch so much easier. It was a blessing in disguise. 2. The handle isn't easily removable like my old hitch. I bike on my vacations and when driving to the trailhead I put a bike on either side of the hitch. Now I have to keep a ratchet handy to remove the handle. 99373

My entire experience with etrailer.com was excellent. I spent numerous hours researching the hitch and tonneau cover set up I wanted for my 2014 Ford F250. The majority of my time was on the etrailer.com website reviewing Q&A, installation guidance and videos, and expert advise. I chose the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitch and the BakFlip F1 tonneau cover. Both products arrived within 10 business days. Installation was as easy and straightforward as expected. The BakFlip F1 really dresses up my F250 and the BakFlip technology makes it very easy to use and gives me full access to my truck bed as needed. The Reese hitch has performed flawlessly. 132420

Wonderful experience. The Reese Elite Pop-in Ball and Safety Chain Attachment was exactly what I needed to adapt a gooseneck trailer to my 2011 F350 Super Duty. Designed specifically for mating with the factory installed fifth wheel and gooseneck mating plate that came with my vehicle, the Elite Pop-in Ball and Safety Chain Attachment requires no welding or bolt installation. The entire kit can be installed and removed in less than (1) minute. It is a well made product that has met all of my expectations. I will recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for quality, well priced trailer and trailer accessories. 3262

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


This adapter is well made, nicely presented and very easy to assemble and install. It allows the Reese SIGNATURE SERIES 5th wheel hitch to double as a standard goose-neck hitch. Once assembled and installed the first time you can easily swap between the above-bed 5th wheel hitch and this goose-neck hitch in less than 5 minutes. The only downside is the steep price for this adapter. And etrailer was very helpful in reviewing their location with respect to mine to determine the exact UPS transit time to get me the hitch quickly but without wasting money on excessive shipping... THANKS! 106627

My Hitch came fully assembled, easy to install in my 2015 Ford F350 with factory rails, A 1 1/2" in box end wrench works great to tighten the puck nuts if you have it, If not the provided wrench works, its just a little difficult due to confined spaces. I had it adjusted and installed in about 30 minutes. Have a little axle and lithumn grease on hand for the installation. The grease cert was a great idea from reese for lubing internal part with out removing the head. A 12'' lube plate is needed if u don't like greasing the head, it just makes things easier. 217592

Since this unit comes fully assembled it was a snap to install in the under bed mounting unit. The only issue I had was how the product was received. The box fell completely apart when the UPS driver was taking it out of his truck. He said it was damaged before he got it. Luckly everything was still in the box. 175843

I bought the Reese Elite pop-in ball for my 2013 Ram3500 and put it to use with a heavy load. It fits perfect and is easy and fast to install or remove. I am very happy with it and can't understand why anyone would want a different system. The safety chain hook-ups are good also, but require a large hook as a smaller hook won't work. I will recommend this product to anyone. 194495

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • Using Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30143 with Fifth Wheel Prep Pkg on 2015 Ford Truck
  • The under-bed rail portions are likely a bit different. The Ford rails are probably welded to the truck's frame, while the Reese aftermarket rails are securely bolted. The Ford underbed rails include a gooseneck hitch, while the aftermarket kit would only provide that if you specifically used the # RP30138-26 add-on kit. The Ford 5th Wheel prep package is indeed compatible with the Reese # RP30143 fifth wheel hitch you referenced. I've confirmed this with my Reese representative. There's...

  • Will The Reese Fifth Wheel Custom Installation Kit # RP50082-58 Fit On A 2011 Ford F250 Short Bed
  • I checked with the manufacturer (Reese) to see if there are any differences on the frames on 2011 Ford Trucks. They said that there is nothing different about the frame in 2011, but if your truck is a diesel the DEF tank causes fit issues. The Reese Fifth Wheel Custom Installation Kit, # RP50082-58, will fit on your 2011 Ford F250 short bed as long as it is not a diesel model.

  • Comparing Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for Reese Elite Series Prep Package on a 2011 Ford F-250
  • If you have the factory installed 5th wheel trailer hitch prep package that includes the pop in ball for a gooseneck trailer, it would be best to use it instead of the above bed gooseneck hitch # RP30845. The pop in ball is directly attached to the base rails which are attached to the truck frame which is a more ideal connection than the above bed hitch. But, if you wanted to or needed to use the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP30845, it will fit in the pucks...

  • Is there Enough Clearance on a Short Bed Truck to Make Tight Turns with a Gooseneck Trailer
  • With a short bed truck, you may need to go with a gooseneck ball with an offset if there is one available for the hitch you have. This will give you extra clearance when making tight turns. To determine if you can safely make tight turns, there is a formula you can follow. Measure the distance from the center of the gooseneck ball to the back of the truck cab. Call this measurement A. Next, measure the width of the trailer overhang and divide by 2 to get half, measurement B. If A is...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 GMC 3500 HD Pulling a 36 Foot RV
  • The Reese Elite Series hitch you referenced is for the Ford trucks, but there is an Elite series hitch and installation kit for your 2011 GMC 3500 HD Dualie, and these are the parts I would recommend for towing a fifth-wheel hitch and allowing full use of your truck bed when needed. The proper installation kit for the 2011 GMC 3500 HD Dualie, is the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, # RP30868. I have added a link to the installation instructions for you to review.

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch For 2008 Ford F-350 With 2012 8 Ft Bed Installed
  • The gooseneck hitch like part # RP30138-26 you mentioned is designed to fit the frame of the truck, so you will want to choose hitch that is compatible for a 2008 Ford F-350 8 ft bed. Unfortunately, the Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Hitch will not work with your truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Gooseneck, part # 9460-48. Only the safety chain loops and ball are visible in the truck bed when this is installed, which gives you full access to the bed of your truck. For the fifth wheel...

The first step is to make sure that your fifth wheel trailer can be used with an adapter. Some fifth wheel manufactures state not to.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-350 Gooseneck Cover
  • The gooseneck hitch cover part # RP30136 that you referenced is designed as a cover for Reese Elite hitches like the part # RP30138-26. I attached a picture of what the cover will look like when installed. You can see that it fits within the outer ring of the gooseneck hitch. If you have the factory fifth wheel hitch installed in your 2012 Ford F-350 this cover will work well for you.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for a 2011 Chevy Silverado Short Bed and 1988 Alperlite Trailer
  • There are numerous gooseneck hitch options depending on the series truck you have (1500, 2500HD, or 3500). I have included a link to the gooseneck hitch main page for your truck. Just select the correct series/bed size combination to see the available options. In terms of clearance issues, some of the hitches can be used with an offset ball to provide a few more inches of clearance. And the shape of many gooseneck trailers (a V-shape at the front) actually helps with clearance on short...
