Secure, 2-Piece, Serrated Jaw

Serrated Jaw of the Reese R20

The dual-jaw system on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch ensures full 360-degree contact around your trailer's king pin for a strong, reliable connection. Unlike traditional spring-loaded, dual-jaw systems, the R20 features serrated jaws for maximum security. The geared teeth ensure that every time you use this hitch, the jaws will close evenly to form a perfect circle around your trailer's king pin, providing a consistently tight connection. By surrounding the king pin entirely - with direct jaw-to-king-pin contact - the R20 allows far less movement in the hitch than other fifth-wheel hitches, resulting in minimal jarring and chucking.



Quiet, Comfortable Ride

Vibration Dampener of the Reese R20

The R20 offers several unique features that help to create a smooth, quiet fifth-wheel towing experience. Aside from the two-piece jaw that offers a firm and secure connection, stability is also increased by having wide-stance, arched legs and a pivot beam with a wide front-to-back mounting configuration. The pivot beam also has a built-in, heavy-duty vibration-isolator system that dampens both vertical and longitudinal vibration, the result of which is less noise and a better ride.



Locking Handle and King Pin Indicator

The R20 features an easy-to-use locking handle with a built-in visual indicator to ensure proper hookup. When the trailer's king pin is in position within the jaws of the hitch, a green indicator button is visible on the back of the fifth-wheel head. This button can be easily seen from the cab of your truck.


Strength and Durability

The R20 was designed with strength and durability in mind. Sturdy steel and various hardened, cast components make up this fifth-wheel trailer hitch that, despite its weight rating, offers commercial-grade towing strength. Extensive testing demonstrated that the R20 is compliant with the criteria (SAE J2638) set forth by the Society of Automotive Engineers for fifth-wheel trailer hitch performance. In addition, this fifth-wheel trailer hitch passed 900,000 cycles in both fatigue and static testing, attesting to its durability.


To increase the lasting effectiveness of your hitch, Reese has included a custom-fit lube plate with the R20. This lube plate provides a smooth surface to help the king pin glide smoothly into the hitch during hookup. It also helps to prevent scratches on the R20's top plate. Grease pockets are integrated into the R20 fifth-wheel trailer hitch so that you can easily maintain the effectiveness of the lube plate.


Note: Lube plate can be removed to fit some applications.

Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review


Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel RP30867 Review

Today were going to review part number rp30867. This is the Reese R20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the fixed legs. This is a 20,000 pound weight capacity hitch. This fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. As you can see right here, has the cast dual-jaw system, which will provide more jaw-to-king-pin contact than your traditional dual-jaw hitches. The geared teeth right down here will ensure even, secure closure for full 360-degree contact.

The secure connection means minimal jarring and chucking. It has a nine-inch wide, two-point European-style funnel, which makes it simple to guide the king pin into the hitch. And it will work great even if trailer or the tow vehicle are not in a straight line. The four-way pivoting head will ease hookup, and even on unlevel ground has a five-Degree side-to-side pivot and it pivots front-to-back also. Single-piece legs with the wide stance provide excellent stability.

The head is held onto the crossmember by a single cast pivot beam. Has the heavy-duty vibration dampeners which will minimize rattle and noise even on rough terrain. Ill just show you those dampeners, turn it to the side here. If I raise the head, youll be able to see the hard yellow rubber, which is a dampener. Theres one on this side, one on this side.

And on the very back Ill show you. You should be able to see right here, the yellow, thats the dampener, and over here on the other side is the dampener also. So you got one here, one over here, one here, and one here. Thatll help minimize rattle and noise even on rough terrain. I also want to show you on the side, you can adjust the hitch height.

If you look here on the side the crossmember has four sets of holes that you can bolt onto the fixed legs. Right now, I have it in the lowest position, which would be 14 inches above the truck bed. If you go to the very bottom one, which would raise it 18 inches above the truck bed. Also, the holes on the fixed legs are elongated, so there is a play of you can move this crossmember one inch front or rear to help gain any cab clearance. This hitch is compatible with slider or Sidewinders if additional clearance is needed. The lockable handle, let me show you on this side. Right here youll see the handle right now is in the lock position. See, its color-coded. The green pointing down means its locked. If you pull it up, the red going up is unlocked. Thatll allow you to open up the hitch. As you can see right there, now the dual-jaws are open. When the king pin slides in, theres a green tab right in there that that king pin will push in on that green tab. When the jaws go around the king pin, you can turn the handle down and theres a hole here you can put a pin and lock through or pin and clip, or you can even put a padlock through there. Padlock would be sold separately for additional security. On the very back, I was mentioning that green pin in the head there when that is pushed all the way. When that king pin slides in and pushes that green tab, as you can see it will actually pop out this indicator on the back of the hitch, and thats what youll be able to see from the rear window of your truck cab. When the screen is popped out, that means that your king pin is fully installed into the hitch head, so that visible indicator will let you determine whether its fully engaged or not. This hitch is a sturdy, powder coated steel which is corrosion resistant. Now for demonstration purposes, I do have it mounted on rails and brackets, but the base rails and installation kit are sold separately. It will work with industry-standard, above-bed rails made by Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Pro Series, Reese, and Valley, and you can simplify installation with a vehicle-specific bracket kit. Gross towing weight on this is 20,000 pounds. The vertical load limit is 5,000 pounds. I mentioned the hitch height can go anywhere from 14 to 18 inches, has a limited lifetime warrantee, and one last little feature. If youll notice, it has a black plastic lube plate already installed on the head. Nice thing about that is it will give you the protection of the head from getting scratched. It will also help when the king pin is sliding into attach, it helps the fifth wheel slide easily. Also, there are little pockets right here that you should be able to see on here and those are grease pockets. You can put grease on there and they will settle in there and give you good lubrication on the hitch head. That should do it for review on part number rp30867.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit Options for a 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 4-Door Short Bed
  • For your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed, there are a few options for 5th wheel trailer hitch mounting kits, both custom and universal. For starters, there are 2 custom fit options that I think would work best for your truck. First we have kit # RP50066-58. This kit has custom brackets that will install on the outsides of the frame rails of the truck which you can see in the installation instructions I have linked for you. I have also included a link to a video showing a typical installation. The

  • Comparing Reese 5th Wheel Hitches R16 # RP30866 and R20 # RP30867
  • The Reese R16 and R20 5th wheel hitches, parts # RP30866 and # RP30867, have many features and characteristics in common, including a cast serrated dual-jaw system for 360-degree king pin contact, and a wide funnel and a 4-way pivoting head for easier hitching. They differ in their pin weight (vertical load) and gross towing weight ratings and as you noted, in that the R20 has an integrated (and removable) lube plate. As you point out, the R16 has sufficient capacity for your new fifth

  • Mounting Tab Dimensions of Reese R20 # RP30867 Fifth Wheel Hitch

The side to side dimension, measured center hole to center hole is 20-1/2 inches. Front to back, center tab to center tab measures 22 inches, as you can see in the photo I edited for you. The Reese R20 is compatible with Reese, Curt, Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite, Pro Series, Husky or Valley bed rails.

  • How Hard is Installation of a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Dually
  • Installation of a 5th wheel trailer hitch takes the better part of the day and probably a couple of friends and a case of your favorite non-alcoholic beverage. It also depends on which installation kit you choose. There are custom kits and universal kits. The difference is that a custom kit requires far less drilling and time to install when compared to a universal kit. For your 2013 Chevy Silverado I recommend custom installation kit # RP50066-58. It is the custom kit that we like to

  • Does the Head of the Reese R20 5th Wheel Hitch Get Greased
  • For the Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30867 you will not need to lube the trailer connector or use any additional plastic accessory for lubrication. This hitch head includes what Reese considers a custom lube plate that is a plastic like material. In fact the installation instructions indicate that this lube plate should not be lubricated with automotive grease. An additional round lube plate should not be used in conjunction with this specific hitch, since it has the custom lube

  • Will the Reese R20 5th Wheel Hitch RP30867 Fit in Bed Rails Used for a Gooseneck Plate
  • Many of the fifth-wheel rail brands have standardized hole spacing on their rails, so the Reese R20 fifth-wheel will fit as long as you have Reese, Draw-Tite, Pro Series, Curt, Valley, or Husky brand rails. You could also look at the brand on the gooseneck plate. If it is one of the brands I mentioned, then you would know that the R20 fifth-wheel will work in the rails also. I am including a demonstration video of the R20 for reference.

These are the same installation rail kits that are used for installing the Reese R20 Fifth Wheel Head # RP30867, and are rated accordingly for the increase in towing capacity too. The Reese R20 Fifth Wheel Head fits industry standard above the bed rails, like the rails you have installed in your truck. The difference in the

  • Does Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch have to be Mounted with an Offset in a 2011 Chevy Silverado
  • The Reese R20 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30867 can be offset 1 inch forward or backward so it does not have to be offset at all if you do not want it to be. With a short bed truck though unless you have a specially designed 5th wheel trailer or it is not very wide you would most likely need the slider version of this hitch, # RP30870. The slider version offers 11 inches of travel for additional clearance when making tight turns. I have linked the videos for both hitches for you.

  • Blue Ox BedSaver And Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch For Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Diesel
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox. They told me the Blue Ox BedSaver, part # BXR4109 will work with Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # RP30867. The BedSaver easily bolts onto your hitch where the legs attach to the hitch head. This can handle trailers with a pin weight less than 4000 lbs. The Blue Ox # BXR4102 will not work with the Reese Hitch # RP30867 you referenced. The BedSaver itself does not prevent the vertical shock or chucking you are experiencing. The design of the

I have linked you to a product demonstration video featuring the Reese R20 hitch, as well as a video showing the install kit being installed on a 2012 GMC Sierra, the same procedure would apply on your Silverado. If you do not already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in your truck bed, I would recommend the Bargman # 54701-003.

  • Are Vibration Isolators Included With Elite Series Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2014 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Vibration Isolators are featured on the R Series Reese fifth wheel hitches only, and are not intended to be used on the Elite Series hitches we offer. The isolators are designed to reduce the vibration when using above bed systems. If you have the factory underbed system the isolators are not needed.

This will work with your existing base rails. The other bracket kit you were reviewing, Reese # RP56001, is intended for extended-length base rails such as Reese # RP30153.

  • Does Reese R20 5h Wheel Trailer Hitch Require Grease
  • The Reese R20 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30867 comes with a lube plate. So no grease is required. The lube plate comes already installed on the head and looks like # 83003. If you wanted to remove the lube plate you certainly can and then you would use grease such as # L10321 in the grease pockets. Grease would catch and hold onto more dust and debris than the lube plate would so I would use the lube plate.

It will accept the Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky fifth wheel hitches. I am attaching a photo that will show those dimensions. If your 1995 Ford F-250 is a short 6-foot bed you will need to use a slider fifth wheel hitch that will give you an extra 10 to 12 inches in travel

  • Can I Install My Valley 5th Wheel Hitch on my 2002 Chevy 2500 HD Short Bed With an Install Kit
  • The # RP30035 install kit you mentioned is a universal application. Although it would work fine on your Silverado, I would suggest using part # RP50064-58, it is a custom fit bracket kit with bed rails. Using a custom kit can reduce your install time by 1/2. A Valley hitch is compatible with Reese, Hidden Hitch, Curt or Husky rails, but we do not suggest mixing manufacturers when it comes to frame brackets and bed rails. In order to make sure the frame brackets will bolt up to the rails

  • Installing My Existing Reese 14K Trailer Hitch in 1997 Ford F-250 Diesel Truck
  • To install the Reese 14K 5th Wheel Hitch in your 1997 Ford F-250 Diesel truck, you will need to have a vehicle specific installation kit. If you have a Light Duty F-250 I would recommend a Reese Custom Install Kit # RP50042-58 as the custom install kits will install in about half the time as a universal kit. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out. If you have a heavy duty F-250 you would want a Reese Install kit # RP30035. I attached installation

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • The use of the Reese universal 5th wheel installation kit, # RP30035, does require drilling into the frame for installation. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. We recommend a custom kit because there is far less drilling involved, you will not need to drill the frame in most cases, the brackets are designed to fit the frame rails on the truck, and the installation time is reduced by as much as 50 percent over the universal kit. For you truck

  • Using a Lil Rocker Fifth Wheel Hitch with Reese Base Rails on a 2006 Ford F-350
  • Your RBW Lil Rocker fifth wheel hitch will work with the Reese base rails from the Universal Installation Kit, # RP30035, but we do not typically recommend mixing manufacturers with brackets and rails. It is safer to use the same brand when it comes to brackets and rails, not to mention the installation is usually easier. It would be fine to use your Lil Rocker hitch in Reese rails and attach the Reese rails with Reese Brackets. I would recommend getting a custom fit installation kit

I bought this hitch and the 50140-58 custom rail kit for my 2009 Dodge 2500 Quad with a short bed. I had read several reviews that stated how "quiet" the hitch is because of the rubber isolation dampeners at the pivot points. I had also read how easy it is to "hookup". Yes and yes! While the R16 would have been plenty sufficient for my needs, the R20 includes the lube plate (form fitted to the fifth wheel) that is a $50 item that you must purchase extra for the R16. And, by specification, the R20 gives you 25% more capacity...for about $75. While the entire assembly is pretty heavy, it is very easily disassembled into three manageable pieces by removing three linchpins. We just completed a 6000 mile journey and did have one "problem"; the vibration isolators for fore and aft motion of the head (the fifth wheel) on the cross member (the blue piece) were not holding up even though my trailer's weight was 13K with a 2.5K pin weight...the yellow rubber material seemed too soft. Etrailer jumped right on it, when I contacted them. They put me in touch with Reese, who next-dayed the "orange" replacements (part #58516) to me along my route, at no cost, of course. When things go perfectly you will always be happy with a company and their products, but what they do in a "crisis" is what makes the difference. Etrailer and Reese are #1 in this regard! 130978

I just finished mounting the Reese R20 in my 2011 GMC Duamax as seen in the attached photo. I found the instructions and drawings to be very good. The installation was straight forward. This hitch replaced an older (1990) hitch which did not have side to side articulation. I am looking forward to the additional flexibility when unhitching and hitching on uneven ground. Thanks for the reference page, particularly the installation video. It was a pleasure doing business with etrailer. 112010

I am looking at a 20K 30867. Will that fit the same bed rails as a 16K 30866 and are they interchangeable from one to the other?I cannot find any information of the distance between the bracket that goes into the rail.Thank you!Dennis J. Kraus South Dakota

Both the R16 and R20 fifth wheel hitches will fit the same rail set. For the most part, above-bed fifth wheel rails are the same. If you have a truck with a set of rails and currently have the R16 part # 30866

$0.00
, you can pull it out of the rails and drop the R20 30867 right in.
