Fifth Wheel Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on this 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short Bed, well be installing the Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch, part number PS30094, along with the mounting rail kit part number RP50064-58. We've already gone ahead and remove the rear wheels and lower the spare tire. This will make installing our side brackets much easier as we get to that point. Our first step for the install is going to be measuring from the rear edge of the bed to the rear edge of our front rail. We'll want a total 47-1/2 inches. Let's go ahead and do that now.



Fifth Wheel Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Today on this 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 series long bed, we will be installing Reese custom base, rails, and brackets part number RP50066-58. Before we get started we want to lower the spare tire, and bring it down out of our way so we have more working room. With that removed we want to go into the bed and measure out and mark the rear rail. The measurements are provided in the installation instructions are going to be from the end of the bed, to the rear edge of the rear rail. We also want to take and make sure the rear rail is centered in between the wheel wells. :36



Fifth Wheel Installation - 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD

Today on this 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD we are going to install part number P50064-58. The first thing we want to do is go ahead and lower the spare tire. In this case we will remove the rear wheel well. You do not have to do this, but it makes things a lot easier to get accomplished. While under the truck we will remove this section of the heat shield which we are going to need the wrench to access the bolts that are on the second rail. After that we will go ahead and start with the bed itself. :32



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today on this 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 series, 6 foot bed, we will be installing the Signature Series rails and brackets part number 30061. We are going to do a couple of things in preparation to installing our Signature Series rails and brackets. First, we will need to lower the spare tire out of the way, and next we will need to remove the heat shield over here on the passenger side. We are going to remove this section, just forward of this cross member here, all the way back to the rear of the vehicle. :27



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD

Today on this 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Pickup we are going to install part number 50061-6008 from towing products. First thing we need to do is get the truck ready to install the 5 th wheel. Lower the spare tire, also in this case the vehicle has a factory brake controller which you need to take the sensor off the inside of the frame rail and get that out of the way so we can install the hardware.

For your truck, I would recommend the Reese Custom Install Kit, # RP50064-58.

The rails of this kit should also work well with your RBW Lil Rocker 5th wheel hitch.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail and Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Chevy Silverado and Valley Hitch
  • I have a solution for you and your Valley sliding fifth wheel hitch, but we do not recommend using base rails and frame brackets from two different manufacturers. We have seen situations where base rails from one manufacturer do not fit the frame brackets from another manufacturer because there are variances in the base rails and frame brackets. Your best option would be to install a custom fifth wheel base rail and install kit like part # C16413-204. The base rails included with this...

  • Best Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Towing Setup for a 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500HD
  • The B and W Companion hitch setup would be your best option if you are looking for a gooseneck and fifth wheel setup for your 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500HD with a long bed. For that you would want the part # BWGNRK1012-5W for the rail kit that also doubles as a gooseneck hitch, and then for the hitch part # BWRVK3500-5W. This setup will give you the best of both worlds as the Companion gooseneck and fifth wheel hitches are the favorite of most.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The only RBW hitch that will fit in industry standard rails is the Lil' Rocker. If that is the hitch you have then it will fit. RBW is no longer in business so there are no installation kits for their other hitches. Another issue is that if your 2013 Chevy 1500 has the 5-1/2 foot bed an ordinary slider hitch will not offer enough travel to make 90 degree turns. What I recommend is the Demco 13K HiJacker # DM8550040 which slides 22-1/2 inches automatically so you can make tight turns. For...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Bumps Top of Bed Sides on a 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • When towing a 5th wheel trailer you will need to have at least 5 inches from the tops of the bed sides to the bottom of the trailer overhang. To achieve this you can not only raise the hitch in the truck bed but you can also lower the pin box on the trailer (on most trailers). It is also possible that this is happening on turns if the pin box is long enough and the trailer is not up high enough. the pin box then would hit the bed sides. If it ends up being a height adjustment issue...

  • You may have an underbed rail system installed in your vehicle that would allow you to install an Elite Series Hitch like the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # RP30144. Check your bed for four pucks that the feet of an Elite hitch would sit in. Check out the picture I attached to get an idea of what they look like. If you do not see the pucks then you do not have the underbed system and you could use the hitch and rails that came with your Toy Hauler.

  • Which Fifth Wheel Install Kit and Rails will Fit My 2009 Chevy Silverado 3500 and RBW Lil Rocker
  • The Reese rails have multiple slots for using various sized fifth wheels from various manufacturers. A Lil Rocker from RBW should fit the middle of the 3 slots at each point.
