Pro Series Fifth Wheel PS31860 Review

Today we're going to review part number PS31860. This is the Pro Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the square tube sliders, the rails and the installation kit all included. Has a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This fifth wheel hitch with the slider will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It's perfect for short bed trucks because this hitch with the slider will move your hitch 10" closer to the tailgate. That'll increase turn clearance between your fifth wheel trailer and the cab of your tow vehicle.


Pro Series Fifth Wheel PS30129 Review

Today we're going to review part number PS30129. This is the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Square Tube Sliders and the Rails and installation kit. It has 15,000 pound weight capacity. This is a sturdy and reliable 5th wheel hitch at a very affordable cost. This slider hitch is perfect for short bed trucks because the slider will allow this hitch head to move 10 inches closer to your tailgate to give you increased turning clearance. The square tube slider allows that vehicle to make normal turns during low-speed maneuvering in narrow spaces. It will increase the space between your cab and your trailer, which allows for that greater turning clearance.


Pro Series Fifth Wheel PS30128 Review

Today we're going to review part number PS30128. This is the Pro Series fifth wheel trailer hitch with the rails and the installation kit all included. Has a 15,000 pound weigh capacity. Now this is a sturdy and reliable fifth wheel hitch at a very affordable cost. Has the rounded slide bar single jaw system which will automatically latch around your trailer king pin. This will offer improved load management of ride when compared to similar models. The head, you can see, is a 4 way pivoting head, helps with trailer hookup, moves front to back and the the skid plate goes side to side to ensure easy trailer hookup even on uneven ground.


B and W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Today we're going to show you a B&W companion 5th wheel trailer hitch with slider, part number BWRVK3400-5W. All right. This is what the companion 5th wheel hitch looks like in a typical application. Here, we have it in a short bed box on a Chevy truck, and you can see that it takes up a lot of the bed. This is designed for a short bed with the slider in mind. Pretty easy to use the slider. There's a lever right here that you pull up.


Demco RV Fifth Wheel DM6076SL-FLAT Review

Today we're going to review part #DM6076SL-FLAT. This is the Demco High Jacker SL Series 21,000 pound flat deck double pivot slider fifth wheel hitch.

It is a slider design and it is designed for short bed trucks to give you that additional clearance between the trucks cab and the trailer during turning maneuvers.

What I would recommend is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you the correct part numbers for the SL base rails and the custom install kit that would be used with this. The base rails are a different design than your normal base rails.


Demco RV Fifth Wheel DM6076SL-21K Review

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 3500 Dually Long Bed w/ Factory Tow Prep Package
  • The Reese # RP30054 hitch you mentioned is intended to be bolted directly to the frame of a cab and chassis truck, so it wouldn't be a good choice for your Ram 3500 with the OEM tow prep kit. Curt and B&W both offer hitches that will drop right into the existing factory pucks in your truck bed. The Curt # C16545-16021 has a 24,000 lb capacity, while the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers a 25,000 lb capacity. Either hitch would be an excellent choice for you, but I'd give the B&W product a slight...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. A fifth wheel adapter that bolts onto the king pin, such as Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G...

  • Recommended Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ford F250 With Ford Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Package
  • You have two alternatives. You can use a 5th wheel hitch that's designed to drop right into the pucks, or you can use an adapter that sits in the pucks and provides industry standard bed rails for a standard 5th wheel hitch to attach to. First the puck mounts. If you have the short bed, you'll want to use a sliding hitch, like the Reese Elite Series Slider, part # RP30144 which will drop right into the pucks. The hitch has an 18K capacity. For a long bed truck, use the stationary model,...

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • The only way you can tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck that has a bed length shorter than 6 feet is to use a Sidewinder pin box replacement on the trailer to give you the needed clearance to make sharp turns. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have know in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once you...

  • Comparing Jaw Types on Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • In regards to fifth-wheel hitches, there are a number of jaw types. A slide bar jaw is found on the less expensive hitches, such as the Pro Series # PS30129. This type of jaw is a secure one for your trailer but you will notice some king pin noise and some chucking as the fit is looser. This design will automatically close around the king pin once it is in place where the double- and single-jaw models will not. The double jaw design is more snug and secure than a slide bar jaw and you...

  • A 5th Wheel Trailer Needs to be Towed Level by Adjusting the Kingpin and/or the 5th Wheel Hitch
  • What you will do is park the truck and trailer on level ground. Using the landing gear/jacks on the 5th wheel to make it level, then measure from the ground to the bottom of the pin box skid plate, not the king pin, and record the measurement. Next measure from the ground to the top of the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch and record it. Adjust either the height of the 5th wheel head or the king pin on the trailer or both to get the measurements as close to the same as you can. If...

  • I have some information that will help, however, I do not know the width of your toolbox/fuel tank combo so we will have to do some measuring to know if they will fit together. The Reese 20K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30038, will be centered over the axle on a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 ft bed. Once the base rails and frame brackets are installed, the front edge of the front base rail will sit 52-1/8 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed. On a 6-1/2 ft bed, this will...
