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

  • Can a 2016 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot Bed Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • Slider hitches will work on trucks with a 6 foot bed, but if the bed is any less in length than that they do no provide enough clearance. You would have to go with a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer with a stationary hitch (or slider hitch left slid forward) to be able to tow a trailer. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • The # RP30035 can be installed on a 2016 Ford F-150 but it also requires the use of the adapter part # RP58531 that will making it be more cost effective to go with a custom rail kit for your truck. Custom rail kits are much preferred as they minimize drilling and install time greatly. For that you would want the part # RP50087-58 which has been confirmed as a fit for your truck.

The Demco part # DM8550040 can slide 22-1/2 inches which would be enough to allow a 5-1/2 foot bed to make a tight turn. This hitch is relatively new so most people aren't aware of it so that is why you are seeing people say a slider hitch won't work on your truck.

Both kits are custom fit applications that will use pre-drilled holes in the frame of your truck for installation. The main difference between the # RP50087-58 and the # RP56013-53 kits is that the # RP56013-53 kit uses an outboard installation kit versus the inboard installation kit in the # RP50087-58.

But since you have such a short bed you will need a Sidewinder pin box installed on the trailer you tow to allow you to make tight turns. First let's start with a rail kit though.

The Reese rail kit part # RP50086-58 also fits the hitch and your truck. The difference between these two hitch is how they install and the size of the rails.

  • Is Sidewinder Required to Pull 5th Wheel with 2015 Ford F-150 Shortbed

A Sidewinder will move the pivot point back and provide 22 inches of additional clearance, which makes it possible to pull 5th wheels with short-bed trucks. It will also provide more turning clearance than a sliding fifth wheel hitch.

Slider hitches, like the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # 16516 that provides 12-inches of additional turning clearance, can help prevent truck-cab-to-trailer-overhang contact which always makes for a better day.

So what you can do, instead of lowering the front of the trailer, is to raise the back of the trailer so that it rides level. There are a couple of ways you can raise the back of the trailer.

Typically the 2 wheel drive trucks have a slightly higher towing capacity since they are a bit lighter. Depending on how the truck is equipped it could be rated for towing 5,000 to 9,100 lbs. Your trailer has the 88 degree nose on it which means you do not have to use a slider hitch in your truck if it is a short bed. Slider hitches are bit heavier, more expensive,...

  • Does a Short Bed Truck Need a Slider if the Trailer has Max Turn Technology
  • From the research I did it looks like trailers that have the Max Turn Technology don't require that the truck towing them have a slider hitch if they are a short bed. So you could use a stationary hitch then. For a hitch I would recommend the Reese 20k Hitch part # RP30081 that you referenced. This is a great hitch at a great price. Check out the review video for more info. For a rail kit I would recommend the semi-custom install kit # RP30035-426.

  • Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch With High Quality Ride for 2014 Ford F150 Towing 6500lb 5th Wheel

A slide bar jaw like what's used on the Pro Series # PS30094 is very susceptible to chucking because the jaw doesn't hold the king pin very tightly. There's no worry of the pin popping out, but it will move around in the jaw causing chucking. A dual jaw like the # RP30051 will do better, but will still allow some chucking.

  • Since you have a Reese Revolution pin box on your trailer you will be able to tow a trailer with your 2013 Ford F-150 that has a 5-1/2 foot bed. You will need a stationary hitch and a fifth wheel rail kit. For a rail kit you would want to use a custom install kit like part # RP50081-58.

For a hitch the Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30047 would...

  • Towing Capacity of 2013 Ford F150 5.0L 8-Cylinder for 5th Wheel Towing

GVW is curb weight plus the weight of passengers and cargo. You will subtract the GVW from the GCWR and the difference will be your towing capacity.
