  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2010 GMC Sierra for Use with Fifth Wheel Hitch 30031
  • For your 2010 GMC Sierra you would want the fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50064-58 as it fits all versions of the 2010 GMC Sierra. From 1500 short beds to 3500 long beds. This is a custom install kit that will install in less time than a universal kit and would minimize drilling. It will also be compatible with your 30031 fifth wheel hitch. I attached an install video for this rail kit for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Towing Trailer with Weight Distribution Where Vehicle Suspension Still Sags
  • First you need to determine the loaded tongue weight of your setup and be sure you are not exceeding the tongue weight range of the part # RP66073 which has a tongue weight range of 400-800 lbs. You could easily be exceeding that with your trailer loaded as tongue weight is typically 10-15% of the total weight of the trailer as it is ready to tow. I did attach a video that shows how a similar Straitline system installs and sets up for you to check out. I do think you need to go with...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for 2016 Ford F-150 Towing 6K Trailer
  • Thank you for the details about your towing set-up; your typing is also darn good for having been done on a smartphone. The Reese Strait-Line dual cam trunnion weight distribution system # RP66084 works with tongue weight (TW) ranging from 600- to 1200-lbs. This makes it ideally suited to your anticipated loaded tongue weight of about 1000-lbs. Note that you also need to factor in the weight of anything in the truck bed that sits behind the rear axle, say a loaded cooler or generator....

  • Can a Short Bed Truck Tow a 5th Wheel Camper, Determining Turning Clearance for 5th Wheel Camper
  • Turning clearance is always going to be best with a long bed truck. Trucks with long beds are more designed for towing, and there are less of them on the market today because more people are buying trucks for reasons other than towing. If I were choosing a bed length to tow a 5th wheel camper, I would definitely go with a long bed because it will most easily offer sufficient turning clearance. There is a formula you can use to determine if you will have enough turning clearance with...

  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control for Enclosed V-Nose Trailer with Limited Frame Access
  • Thank you for the photo of your v-nose enclosed trailer for which you are looking for a weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system. Since you have limited access to the trailer frame, about 15-inches based on your photo, I suggest you check whether the diamond-plate nose blocks access to the side of the frame further back, say around 30-inches back from the hitch ball. This is hard to tell from the photo due to the camera angle. If the bottom of the diamond-plate does not extend...

  • Is Replacement Key Available For Tow-Ready Trailer Hitch Lock # 5201
  • I cannot tell for sure but the lock you sent the photo of looks like a Tow-Ready Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 5201. I called my contact at Tow-Ready and they told me that if the lock you have is indeed one of theirs, the instructions state you need to record the key number when you got the lock and if the key is misplaced you can contact them for a replacement. If you do not have the key number, you will need to have the lock drilled out and then replace the lock.

  • Weight Distribution Solution for A-Frame Trailer with Side Mounted Jack
  • Your picture is a bit grainy so I couldn't tell for sure, but if there is a hole in the center of the a-frame for mounting a jack you are going to want to install a jack there and remove your side mount jack. The part # BD155300 has a wheel caster like your current jack does as well. With the jack off of the side of the trailer you would have clearance to install a WD system. Since you already have sway control the Reese Trunnion system part # RP66540 would be a great choice for a...

  • Replacement 20K Head And Head Support For Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch On Ford F-350
  • If you have a standard 16,000-lb Reese fifth wheel hitch on your F-350 then you can replace the head with part # 30118. This includes the hitch head and head support and will fit in the legs of your fifth wheel hitch. Just to make sure, if you give me the model number of the hitch you have I can verify the # 30118 will work for you.

  • Is Extra Hardware Needed to Mount 5th Wheel Brackets RP50087 to the Rails
  • Only 4 of the bolts you see pictured with the bracket kit only, # RP50087, are used to hold the brackets to the truck frame. The others are used to attach the rails to the brackets. So you don't have to have the other hardware kit, which is # RP58430 or # 58164 unless you want to use the optional hardware mentioned in the instructions, linked for reference.

  • Using Weight Distribution when Towing Enclosed Motorcycle Trailer with 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • If you choose to pull your motorcycle trailer with your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend using a weight distribution (WD) system. Since the dry trailer weight is just over half of your vehicle's weight it is a good idea to use a WD system. However, it can be difficult to find a system that is compatible with a V-nose trailer because of the length of frame required for the WD system. Most systems require 28-30 inches along the trailer's frame to mount the spring arm brackets....

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 12,000 lb Trailer with Smoker Built on It
  • Typically tongue weight is 10-15% of the total weight of the trailer. Your trailer is most likely a special case but that would put your 12k trailer at having a tongue weight of 1,200 - 1,800 lbs. There is only one weight distribution system we offer that would have a tongue weight range high enough. That would be the Torklift Superhitch part # TLWD1000. Which is going to require the shank part # TLM9010 and hitch ball # TLM9008. To use this system you would have to have the Torklift...

  • How is the Rear Rail Placed when Installing the Reese Fifth Wheel Outboard Rail Kit RP56013-53
  • When placing the rear rail with the # RP56013-53 you want to use the recommended dimension from the rear edge of the rear rail (not the center) to the rear edge of the truck bed. To place the front rail you will want to use the hitch for this. You will place the hitch in the rear rail mounting tabs and then will set the front rail wherever the front mounting tabs place it. This will ensure you get the best possible fit for your hitch. I attached an install video for this kit for you...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a Ford F-250 Short Bed Towing Camper
  • Since you have a short bed truck you are going to need a slider hitch like the Reese Dual Jaw part # RP30051. The slider hitches allow short bed trucks the ability to make tight turns with fifth wheel hitches attached. If you truck has rails installed in the bed that look like what come with the part # RP30035 you would be good to go and would not need anything else. Since I don't know what year truck you have the best solution I have is the # RP30035 that is a universal rail kit that...

  • Recommendation for Towing a 5th Wheel with a 2013 Ford F-150 Platinum 5.0L V8 SuperCrew
  • I can help you figure out if your truck will be capable of towing this trailer. First thing I would recommend is to look at the sticker on the door jam of your truck and look for the GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating). Then you will want to subtract this number from the GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight). This will tell you exactly how much towing capacity your model of truck has. You will definitely want to make sure that your vehicle has the capacity to tow the Gross Weight of the trailer...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation to Replace RBW Fifth Wheel Rails in a 2004 Ford F-350
  • The rails you have aren't the industry standard fifth wheel rails so we do not have any gooseneck adapters that would fit it. If your plan is to tow a fifth wheel hitch your best option is going to be to go with a new gooseneck hitch to replace the RBW rails like part # 9460-48 which has been confirmed as a fit for your 2004 Ford F-350 short bed. This is an excellent hitch confirmed to fit your truck. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Goosebox To Replace Lippert 1116 Pin Box On Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • Thanks for the photos of your trailer pin box. That really helps when trying to find the right parts. With the dimensions you provided, it looks like you have a Lippert pin box on your trailer. Using an adapter like you have to attach to your gooseneck will increase the jarring and chucking and can make the ride uncomfortable. I have a solution for you. From the measurements you gave it does look like you have a Lippert 1116. If you double check your measurements before purchasing and...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2004 Chevy Silverado and 4,400 Pound Dry Creekside Travel Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. It can be hard to estimate the capacity based on the try weight but some weight distribution systems have a tongue weight range. It is likely that when loaded the tongue weight will be greater than 410 pounds...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-150 Towing 2015 Open Range 319 RLS
  • A 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive truck would work just fine to tow your trailer as long as it has enough towing capacity. Typically the 2 wheel drive trucks have a slightly higher towing capacity since they are a bit lighter. Depending on how the truck is equipped it could be rated for towing 5,000 to 9,100 lbs. Your trailer has the 88 degree nose on it which means you do not have to use a slider hitch in your truck if it is a short bed. Slider hitches are bit heavier, more expensive,...

  • Best Weight Distribution/Sway Control Recommendation for 6,500 lb Trailer
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Your tongue weight will most likely...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Toyota 4Runner
  • Most likely yes, but you will need to check the towing capacities of your 2005 Toyota 4Runner in the owners manual to determine exactly what the towing capacities are before. At the very least it would be rated for 5,000 lbs. See page 400 of owners manual. The hitches we offer for your vehicle have more than enough capacity. For example, the Hidden Hitch part # 70779 has a 6,000 lb trailer towing capacity. But that does not necessarily mean your vehicle has the same capacity. Since...

  • Should the Hitch Ball On The Reese The Goose 5th Wheel Adapter Spin
  • Thank you for the picture of your adapter! The 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter, The Goose, that you bought is part # RP58079. The hitch ball is designed to rotate to reduce binding with the gooseneck coupler. The newer model of the Reese The Goose # RP58079 comes with built-in safety-chain loops. Since your model does not come with this feature, you can use the Reese Safety-Chain Attachment for Gooseneck Hitches # RP50223. These safety chain brackets will install on Reese, Curt, Draw-Tite,...
