What our customers are saying:

I checked around locally for the best price on a Reese 16k 5th wheel hitch with a kwik-slide for my short bed Dodge Ram. I found your website while searching for info. on 5th wheel hitches and was surprised to discover that the identical hitch was $110 cheaper, even with a shipping charge of $94.00.

Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Elite series pre-assembled trailer hitch with wiring harness rated at eighteen thousand pounds. Part number RP30142. The custom under-bed rail kit is sold separately for this application. Now this particular fifth wheel hitch does have a gross towing weight of eighteen thousand pounds, but it is limited to your rail kit and your vehicle, so go ahead and check both of those. You're going to go ahead and go with the lowest weight that is recommended. The Reese Elite Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch is fully assembled when it comes out of the box. All you have to do it put the head on and put your pins and clips in, so it saves hours of assembly. Now this fifth-wheel hitch, hitches 00:00:41 a nice one-piece Ford steel locking jaw so when you pull your fifth wheel camper, it's going to be nice and secure here in the jaw.


Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2015 Ram 3500

Today on our 2015 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty Crew Cab we're going to be installing the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package vehicles, rated for 25,000 pounds, part number BWRVK3600. There's a handle on each side that has the black rubber piece on it. As you lift up, that's what releases it so that when you set it down on, it catches and locks it in place. You'll then need to take the pin, go back through, put your clip in. You need to do that for both sides. Now the head can pivot forward and backwards. Now that we have the head attached, to release the jaws so that you can hook up your camper or trailer, you remove the pin.


Fifth Wheel Base Rail Kit Installation - 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Today on our 2015 Ford F350 Super Duty Crew Cab, we're going to be installing the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, part number RP50073-58. Here's what our Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails look like installed in the vehicle. In addition to the base rails, we've also installed the Reese R20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, part number RP30867. While today we have the R20 Fifth Wheel Hitch installed in our rails, these base rails are compatible with several different brands of hitches. We're going to first begin with removing the rear tires. This is not necessary, but it will give us a little more working room, as well as allow you to see things a little bit easier during the installation. Next, we're going to lower down the spare tire as well. While this is not necessary, again it'll give yourself a little more working room and it's also going to allow you to see things a little bit better. Next, we're going to go up into the bed of the vehicle and we're going to take one of the two rails.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16546 Review

Today we're going to review part number 16546. This is the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, with the Curt R24 slider. It's a dual jaw design with a 24,000 pound weight capacity. For demonstration purposes I do have it mounted on some base rails and the mounting bracket to give you an idea what it looks like in the vehicle. But the base rails and the mounting bracket are sold separately. This is a two jaw locking system right here. It provides a 360 degree jaw to king pin contact. It will give you less rattle, more security then the slide bar models. On the very back here, I'm going to show you in a minute when I turn it around here, it has a three point color-coded indicator system.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16545-16017 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16545-16017. This is the CURT Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Ford towing prep package. It is a dual jaw design hitch. It has a 24,000 pound weight capacity. This part number is a custom fit part number. It's designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Now this hitch has the 2-jaw locking system which will provide a 360-degree jaw-to-kingpin contact.

Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch And Installation Kit For 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Short Bed
  • We have a few options that may work for your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. Since you said you have a short bed you will need a slider hitch at the least, and you said you have bed rails that you do not wish to take off. This would then require a hitch that has more height so you have clearance for the rails. I was not able to find the number 30031 you asked about. You would need to verify the hitch and what its capabilities were to safely use it for your camper. I will make some recommendations...

  • Differences Between Pro Series and Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitches for Towing 15,800 Lb Trailer
  • The Pro Series Dual-Jaw 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # PS30855, is a standard duty 5th wheel intended for 6-foot and longer truck beds (except flareside and stepside types). It is rated for 16K gross towing weight and 4000-lb tongue weight. The similarly-rated Reese R16 Serrated Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch, part # RP30866, provides several worthwhile upgrades including dual serrated jaws for 360-degree king pin contact, a vibration isolation system for reduced jarring and chucking,...

  • 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...

  • Comparing 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Jaw Designs for a Hitch on a 2012 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • There are a few different jaw types on a 5th wheel hitch. A slide bar can be found on the less expensive hitches like a Pro Series # PS30094. A slide bar, while secure, is going to provide the least snug fit and you will notice the king pin making some noise. Next are double jaws and are much more secure and cut down quite a bit on the movement and noise of the king pin. Many Reese, Curt, and other brand mid-level and higher end hitches have the double locking jaw design like # RP30075. The...

  • Comparing Reese, Pro Series, and CURT 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • We can look at four 5th wheel hitches to compare. The Reese Hitch, # RP30047, is the highest priced of the 4 fixed 16K 5th wheel trailer hitches. Reese is a leader in the towing industry and we sell more Reese hitches than any other brand. It is height adjustable from 14-1/2 to 18 inches. The jaw on the Reese hitch is a double jaw style. This is a safe and secure style. Only the single hook is considered to be better. It has a double pivot head. The next step down in price is the Pro...

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500 Short Bed Hitch Prep
  • I attached a link to the right that shows all of the confirmed 5th wheel hitch fits for your 2015 Ram 2500 short bed with a hitch prep package. Since you have a short bed you will need a slider hitch to let you make tight turns. For that I would recommend the # RP30075. For a rail kit to fit your underbed rail kit you will need the # RP30154.

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 5th wheel hitch that fits directly into the factory 5th wheel prep package in your 2015 Ram 3500 you will need B&W hitch # BWRVK3600. Or you can use Reese hitch # RP30160. Since neither of these hitches are sliders you would want to add a Sidewinder pin box to the trailer to be able to make tight turns. Sidewinders only fit specific pin boxes so I would need to know the manufacturer and model of the pin box itself to determine if there is one that will fit. This information is...

  • Yes, the 20K Reese OEM Fifth Wheel Hitch for Ram Hitch Prep Package part # RP30160 has been confirmed to fit the hitch prep package of your 2014 Dodge Ram. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well. If you instead wanted to install the Reese Titan 20k Hitch part # RP30867 that used to be known as the R20 hitch you would also need the adapter part # RP30154.

  • What is a Safe Distance Between Truck Bed Rails and the Underside of a 5th Wheel Camper Trailer Loft
  • Our recommendation for safe towing, no damage to truck bed rails or underside of trailer loft is 6 inches. If you have at least 6 inches of clearance with the trailer level you should be alright in all but the most severe pitch and roll situations, like entering a steep drive or going through a deep dip. If your fifth-wheel hitch does not have enough rise to accommodate 6 inches of clearance, then you might be interested in a hitch that can be adjusted to 18 inches above the truck bed,...

This hitch also has 3 height settings from 15 to 17 inches, and the slider moves the hitch head 12 inches. Another note is If using a slider, this hitch will not adjust to lowest height setting.

This will get you under the dealers price. I have included a couple of video reviews of these parts for you.

  • Tips on Lubricating a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Hitching Up to a Trailer
  • The grease fitting that is on top of the head unit on your Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30084, is used to lubricate the pivot points of the jaws. Using a lithium grease, # L11350, is acceptable. You will also want to lubricate the jaw itself, and the skid plate. For the skid place, if you want you can use a Lube Plate, # RP83001, or use automotive grade chassis grease like # L11316. The hitch should be lubricated and checked for proper function before each trip. If the jaws are...
