Fifth Wheel Base Rail Kit Installation - 2004 Ford F-150

Today on this 2004 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number RP30080, we are also going to install part number 49080 from Draw-Tite. This is their Pro Series 25K gooseneck plate for fifth wheel rails. The first thing we need to do is get the vehicle up in the air a little bit to lower the suspension so it will be easier to get to the frame and tighten the bolts. We also lowered the spare tire too to give us a little extra room if we need to. The first thing we are going to do is mark our location for our rail that goes towards the back of the bed and we are going to measure from the back edge of the bed itself up to the back edge of the rail as described in the instructions. We are going to take our rail and line it up with those two marks and then you want to even it out left and right. 00:44



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2010 Ford F-150

Today on this 2010 Ford F-150 we are going to install fifth wheel bracket kit part number V55080 from Valley. The first thing we are going to start off with is mounting the bracket to the frame of the vehicle. In this case it does not seem like we have to lower the exhaust or move the spare tire. We will show you where the bracket mounts up to the frame. It is going to be using these two existing holes in the frame and there will be a U-bolt that will be holding everything together up front and it will sit like this on the vehicle. Take it down and install the hardware and put our bracket in place. 00:33





Ford F-150 Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers


  • Will Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit part # RP50087-58 Fit 2016 Ford F-150 to Install Reese 15k Hitch
  • The Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50087-58 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ford F-150 and would be all that you would need to install your Reese 15k fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your truck. This kit does come with insulators since your truck bed is aluminum, but since you have a spray in bed liner and the rails themselves are powdercoated you would not need to worry about corrosion from dissimilar metals. If you have the rails already and only need the...

  • How to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with a 2016 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • Since your 2016 Ford F-150 has a 5-1/2 foot bed you really only have one option that will allow you to tow a fifth wheel trailer. You will have to use a Sidewinder as there really isn't any other way to have enough clearance to make tight turns. Especially if you want to keep the weight down. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to...

  • The Demco Hijacker Premier Series Ultra Slide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM6076P-UL-16K that you referenced will fit industry standard fifth wheel rails like the # RP50086-58 that you also referenced. The formula for determining cab clearance is: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from the king pin to the cab of truck B = Offset from slider C = Width of the nose of the trailer divided by 2.

  • Your Husky slider hitch will fit installation kit # RP56013-53 for your 2015 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 foot bed. However, you will not be able to slide the hitch back without removing the tail gate on the truck. Otherwise the pin box on the trailer would interfere with the tail gate. The other issue is that even if you slid the hitch back you would not be able to make tight turns without hitting the truck and trailer together.

  • Recommended Position of Reese 5th Wheel Custom Base Rail Install Kit # RP50086-58
  • In your 2015 Ford F-150 Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rail Kit # RP50086-58 will install so that the rear-facing edge of the rear rail will be 28-3/4-inches from the edge of the truck bed (the bed, not the tailgate). This will place the center of the king pin in the correct location, directly above or just slightly forward of the axle center line. The linked instructions file and helpful article will make your hitch install go easier.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit Recommendations for a 2015 Ford F-150
  • The 4-bolt universal installation kit # RP30095 does not fit your 2015 Ford F-150. But you can use the 10-bolt installation kit # RP30035. I prefer the 10-bolt kit because with it each rail is secured to the truck in 5 places rather than just 2 places like it is with the 4-bolt kit. The other option is a custom installation kit, # RP50086-58. With the custom installation kit you will not have to drill into the truck frame to install the brackets like you would with the universal kits.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • For your 2015 Ford F-150 with a short bed you would want the fifth wheel rail install kit part # RP56013-53. These rails are industry standard rails that will work well with your Husky slider hitch. The install kit I recommended is a custom install kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling. If your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed the only way you would be able to tow a trailer is if you went with a Sidewinder pin box. You will need to...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Install Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft bed
  • To install a set of fifth wheel rails in your 2015 Ford F-150 will require some minor drilling, but as long as you go with a custom install rail kit like the # RP56013-53 the drilling will be minimalized and the install time would be about half the time when compared to a universal rail kit. Now for a fifth wheel hitch you really only have one option since your truck bed is only 5-1/2 feet long. The Demco Autoslide Hijacker part # DM8550040 is going to be the only hitch available that...

  • Is Drilling Required to Install Fifth Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ford F-150
  • When you install the # RP50086-58 the only amount of drilling required would be for the rails through the bed of the truck. There wouldn't be any drilling required to attach the brackets to the frame of your truck. Since I don't know which holes you are having an issue with the best recommendation I can make would be to double check all of the measurements so that you know everything is lined up properly.

  • Is There a Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for a 2015 Ford F-150 that Only Uses 5 Bolts Per Rail
  • Actually what you described is perfectly normal for a 4-bolt fifth wheel rail setup. The center bolt setup also struck me as odd when I first learned about it, but it's perfectly safe as long as the kit you had installed is a 4-bolt rail kit. The Reese kit part # RP50087-58 is a 4 bolt rail kit designed for your vehicle that would install exactly like you described.

The other one, # C16441-104, only goes up to 2014 Ford F-150s. Both the Reese 5th wheel hitch # RP30047 and the Curt Q16 # C16120 will fit the Curt rails included with the installation kit # C16442-204.

Instead you would want the Timbren system part # TFR1504D as it would provide you with suspension support, would not interfere with the rail kit, and would not require you to maintain air pressure.

The Ride-Ride kit for your 2014 Ford F-150 4x4, # F2525, install on the insides and bottoms of the frame rails and are centered over the rear axle so fit should not be a problem.
