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.

This is a custom fit part number. This is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford super duty trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. This hitch is an auto-locking, slide-bar jaw mechanism, helps provide superior security. Right back here you'll see the spring loaded; it's a rear steel tension bar.

For demonstration purposes I do have the slider and the hitch head mounted on some base rails with the mounting brackets just to show you how it looks installed in a vehicle. The rails and the mounting brackets are sold separately on our web site. This is an auto locking slide bar jaw mechanism right here. Provides superior security. Has the rear steel tension bar right here that works with the slide bar to clamp around the king pin.

For demonstration purposes I do already have this mounted on the base rails and the mounting brackets just to give you an idea what this would be like installed in your truck bed. The base rails and the brackets would be sold separately.

Today we're going to review part number C16536. This is the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Curt R20 Slider. This is a Dual Jaw design hitch and has a 20,000 lbs weight capacity. Now, for demonstration purposes, I have this mounted on some base rails just to give you an idea of how this would install on your truck bed. Now, this is a 2-Jaw locking system right up there which will provide 360-degrees jaw-to-king-pin contact. That will give you less rattle, more security than some of the slide-bar models. The head on this is a unique spherical axial bearing which allows easy pivoting of the hitch head.

  • Will Air Suspension Work For 2012 Ford F-250 With Lift Kit When Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • To safely tow your trailer I recommend you do not install the lift kit on your 2012 Ford F-250. Trucks with a lift kit tend to pose a very tough challenge for towing. We do not offer any sort of adapter/kit to raise the height of the 5th wheel hitch in your truck bed. An air suspension kit would not be the answer to leveling your fifth wheel with a lifted truck. Options would be to raise the hitch head to its highest position and if it still does not allow your trailer to clear the...

  • Why Can't a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Slid Back When Using a Sidewinder Pin Box
  • There are a couple of reasons why you cannot slide a slider hitch back when using a Sidewinder. First, if you were to do so, you would have to remove the tailgate on the truck because there is no room otherwise. There may not even be enough room with the just a slider and not using a Sidewinder at all. The second issue is stress. The hitch is set up to have the center of the trailer king pin, or the Sidewinder king pin, over the center or slightly forward of the rear truck axle. Using...

  • Install Kit for Husky 5th Wheel Hitch on 2014 Ram 2500
  • Husky doesn't offer a frame bracket kit for the 2014 Ram 2500. Reese makes a frame bracket/bed rail kit that's a fit, part # RP56009-53, or Curt offers their version, which is part # C16427-204. I believe you stated that you already have the Husky bed rails, is that correct? We don't recommend mixing manufacturers of bed rails and frame brackets, because they haven't been tested together, the weight capacity would be unknown. We recommend using frame brackets and bed rails from the...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Installed on Chevy Silverado 2500 with Utility Service Bed
  • It is possible to install a 5th wheel hitch in a truck that has a service bed depending on the type of service bed. If the service bed is the type that has all the doors and storage on the sides and is much larger than a regular side rails on a truck bed, you will not be able to install a 5th wheel hitch. If the service bed is more like a flat bed, it is possible to install a hitch. It would be a custom installation that would have to be performed by a qualified professional. The hitch...

  • B and W Slider Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ram Short Bed with B and W Turnover Hitch
  • Since you have a shortbed 2014 Ram you will want the slider fifth wheel hitch so that you can make sharp turns. For that part # BWRVK3400-5W would be what you want. When traveling at low speeds where you need to make tight turns you will want to have the hitch slid back for better turning clearance. Once you get out of the parking lot you will want to have the hitch slid back forward so that the weight of the trailer is above the axle and not behind it. At slower speeds having the hitch...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Hitch Prep
  • I have a solution for you, but since you have a short bed truck the trailer you plan towing will have to either have a Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin box so that you have clearance to make tight turns. For an Elite style Reese Hitch confirmed to fit the hitch prep you have in your 2014 Ram 2500 you would want the part # RP30160. If you want to go this route but don't have a Sidewinder or Revolution you will need to replace the pin box of your trailer with one. Sidewinders are...

  • How Much Clearance is Required between Truck Cab and Trailer to Safely Make 90 Degree Turn
  • To safely execute a 90 degree turn you want at least 4 inches of clearance between the truck cab and trailer. The head of the # BWRVK3400-5W is adjustable from front to back so you may be able to adjust it back a little bit for better clearance while pulling out of your driveway. Otherwise you will need to slide the hitch back in the bed of your truck to make the turn. The reason for needing 4 inches is because if the turn your making has an elevation change the added clearance will...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-350 Short Bed
  • First, the main appeal of the underbed installation kits for 5th wheel hitches is the fact that you won't have rails sticking up in the bed so it is essentially completely open when the hitch isn't in place. The rails do not stick up that much so for the most part people are fine with above the bed rails. It all just depends how often you place on carrying something in the bed. There are some pretty big differences between Reese hitch # RP30870 and # RP30083. First, the head on the Titan...

  • Is a 2015 Ram 2500 Too Tall to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • First, if the axles on the trailer are physically flipped upside down, that can cause all sort of problems with suspension and tire wear as well as ride quality and tracking behind the truck. The axles should have a bow in them that points up in the middle. But if you mean that the leaf spring stack was moved to the tops of the axles then that is fine. What you can do is measure from level ground to the bottom of the 5th wheel trailer overhang (with the 5th wheel level). Then you can...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit for a 2001 Dodge Ram Short Bed
  • On your 2001 Dodge Ram short bed, if using the Reese universal installation kit # RP30035 measure from the rear edge of the bed forward 28-7/16 inches to locate the rear edge of the back rail. This will put the center of the hitch jaws approximately 2 inches forward of the center of the rear axle. I have linked the instructions for you.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation
  • Since you are buying a 5th wheel trailer, I would recommend a 5th wheel hitch because it will be the safest and most secure way to tow a 5th wheel trailer. Using an adapter can put more stress on the trailer. I would be more than happy to make a recommendation, but I would need to know the year, make, model, bed length and cab style of your truck. You can also view the link I provided to enter your own year/make/model to view the rail kits. I included a helpful article for you too.

  • Minimum Required Clearance Dimensions for 5th Wheel Trailer and Short Box Ford F-250
  • The diagram I have linked for you shows the recommended minimum clearance distances for trucks towing 5th wheel trailers. The diagram includes vertical clearance at the bed rails as well as lateral clearance at the tailgate and bumper. When adjusting your hitch and pin box heights you want to find the sweet spot where you get the maximum clearance between truck bed rails and trailer overhang that still keeps your trailer dead level or close to it. It may be necessary to also adjust the...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 5-1/2-foot Bed with Rambox Feature
  • No 5th wheel hitch manufacturers recommend their hitches for use in a Ram Box-equipped truck. The issue is the decreased bed width on models that have the Ram Box feature. Customers have told us that they have installed a 5th wheel hitch on models with Ram Boxes but it is not a practice recommended by hitch manufacturers nor etrailer. The hitches that will fit your truck are shown on the linked page. The ProSeries # PS30093 and install kit # RP30035-386 are a good entry-level set-up...

  • Installing Above-Bed Rail Mounted 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2015 F350 W/ Ford Tow Prep Package
  • You'll just need a simple adapter, part # RP30156. The adapter will attach into the pucks in the truck bed, and the hitch will mount to the adapter just like it would to bed mounted rails. The adapter is compatible with the Reese Elite underbed rail system or the OEM 5th wheel prep package offered by Ford. If you'd care to see a product demonstration video showing the adapter in use, click the provided link.

  • 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...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab with 6 Foot Bed w/o Factory Rails
  • Thanks for sending us a picture of your 5th wheel trailer! The 5th wheel hitch I recommend is the Curt sliding 5th wheel # C16521 because of the double jaw and a full floating 360-degree jaw to king pin contact. Having a double jaw hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin. It's also cushioned which provides you a smooth ride! The gross towing weight of this Curt sliding 5th wheel hitch # C16521 is 16,000 pounds and the vertical load limit...

  • Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2014 Ford F-250/F-350 Short Bed with OEM Prep Package
  • If you want a 5th wheel hitch that fits directly in the 5th wheel prep package on your 2014 Ford F-250 short bed you can use Reese Elite Series hitch # RP30144. It is rated for 18,000 pounds and has a travel distance of 10 inches. The other option would be to use adapter # RP30156 and a hitch that fits above the bed rails in the adapter such as # RP30083 for a 20K or # RP30075 for a 16K. I have linked some videos for you to review as well.
