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.

Video Transcript for Trimming a Truck Bed Liner for Fifth Wheel Rails

Today were going to cover a frequently asked question on how to cut out a bed liner for a fifth wheel installation. Its pretty easy, well measure for our cross rails just like normal and then well go ahead and mark out our bed liner. Measuring from the edge of the bed of the truck, not the bed liner, but the edge of the bed and measure out. Well go do one side, well go to the other side and make a mark as well. Now those will be the marks thatll align our first rail way. Well make sure that our rail is even from left to right.

Well just use the ribs in the bed liner to align it with and then well just draw a circle all the way around the rails. Then next well go ahead and use the legs of the fifth wheel hitch to place our second rail and now this will put our rail basically in the right stop and well just draw an outline around it as well and then the next step is go ahead and remove the parts for the fifth wheel and remove the bed liner and we can go ahead and cut out what we need. Before we make our cut outs well go ahead and support the bed liner up in the air a little bit with a couple pieces of timber. Well go ahead and drill some pilot holes for a saw were going to use to make the final cut out. So lets take our saw and well trace on the outside of our line and just cut it out.

Alright, and from this point we can go ahead with the fifth wheel install as normal.

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
