Fifth Wheel Installation - 2012 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2012 GMC Sierra Denali well be installing the 5th wheel hitch, part number RP30081 and the Reese base rail kit part number RP50066-58. Our first step will be installing the rear base rail. We need to measure from the end of the truck bed to the back edge of the rear base rail. Once we get our length, well then measure side to side to make sure were center of the bed.Now that weve got our base rail in position we need to go ahead and mark the holes. Im going to use a color paint pen so that it really stands out for me. Now with my holes marked out, Im going to go ahead and take an eight inch bit to make a pilot hole.



Fifth Wheel Base Rail Kit Installation - 2010 GMC Sierra Pickup

Today on this 2010 GMC Sierra we are going to install part number RP50064-58. The first thing we need to do is lower the spare tire to get it out of our way which we have done already. The next thing we need to do is remove the heat shield and loosen the exhaust up a little bit too. First off we will work on the rear exhaust hanger right here. We are going to spray it down with some lubricant and that way what will happen is that will loosen our exhaust up so we can move it back and forth to give us a little more room when you cut out the heat shield. If you need a little more working room you can always go one more up and remove this hanger too. 00:35



Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 HD

Today on this 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 HD we will be installing Curt fifth wheel Q5 with roller part number 50064 and part number 16500. We will also be installing the fifth wheel installation kit with rails part number 50061-6008. Go ahead and lower the spare tire up out of the way. Also on some models you will find that the heat shield over here on the passenger side will interfere with the installation of your frame brackets. If that is the case you may want to go ahead and remove the heat shield out of the way as well. Okay on the models that have the factory installed electrical brake control unit will need to relocate the electrical plug mounted to the inboard side of the driver side frame rail here. Loosen those up and you can see that we can actually take the heads of the bolts, slide the bracket forward, and pop them out those larger holes there. 00:59

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for Reese 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30051

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Telescoping Pin Box Scrapes Tailgate on 2013 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4x4 Crew Cab
  • The pin box itself, on the trailer, slides? Then that sounds like a telescoping pin box. If lowering the tailgate is not an option, a 5th wheel tailgate might help. Take a look at the 100 series tailgate, # VGM-07-100. The V-shape area at the top provides more clearance for the pin box. We also have a composite locking version, # VGM-07-4000. And there is also an aluminum locking version, # HL15240. Raising the pin box on the trailer will actually bring the trailer lower. You might...

I do recommend a custom install kit for your 5th wheel hitch since custom kits take less time to install and will require less drilling. For an 18K trailer I suggest a hitch rated for 20K. Reese offers their R20 hitch with serrated dual jaws and 4-way pivoting head, part # RP30867, and their custom install kit # RP56007-53. This is a premium system that will deliver superior ride quality with...

  • Differences Between Curt 5th Wheel Kit # C16616 and Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # 16516
  • The Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Kit # C16616 differs from Curt E16 hitch # 16516 in that it includes a universal base rail kit along with the hitch unit itself. Universal install kits are the most cost-effective option but do take longer to install and they do require drilling into the truck's frame. A simpler option is a custom-fit bracket kit such as the Curt Custom install kit # C16418-204 that will save you considerable installation time. You can use the Curt E16 # 16516 hitch...

  • Is it Possible to Adjust Jaws on Curt Q16 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about your Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16120, and he said a little play is to be expected in order for the pin to rotate freely. So the jaws should not fit too tightly around the king pin. The jaws are operated by springs. The first time you used your 5th wheel hitch the springs may have been a little stiff. By the second time you used the 5th wheel you likely loosened up the springs and the jaws, resulting in the play you noticed. Also if...

  • It doesn't look like a Reese, B&W, or Curt bracket. It could be a Valley bracket. Given that the bracket is one piece it is likely a custom bracket. It does look similar to the Reese brackets in kit # RP50066-58. The hole spacing does sound like industry standard rails. I do not recommend mixing bracket and rail manufacturers because they are not tested together and you end up with an unknown capacity. Based on the side to side hole spacing it sounds like 4-bolt rails were originally...

The wedge is bolted to the underside of the Sidewinder arm, and is designed to sit in the funnel of the 5th wheel hitch and prevent the king pin from swiveling at the hitch.

Universal kits require you to drill into the truck frame and typically require about 5 hours for installation.

It is recommended for trucks with shorter beds as it can move 10 inches closer to the tailgate to increase the turning radius thanks to its slider. It also has a 4-way pivoting head that helps make hookup more secure. I have provided links to a video review of this hitch as well as a video of its typical installation.

  • Can a Revolution Pin Box be Used Instead of a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2013 GMC Sierra
  • A Revolution or Sidewinder (they are the same. Revolution is the name given to it when it comes OEM on a trailer) can be used in place of a slider hitch even when a Sidewinder is not required. It will provide plenty of clearance and you will not have to get in and out of the truck to slide the hitch back. If the trailer you have can accept a Sidewinder then it is definitely a viable option. The Sidewinder fits on the trailer so a hitch will be needed either way. With a Sidewinder, you...

The problem is that a 5th wheel hitch installation kit will require the same or some of the same mounting locations as the gooseneck hitch so they would interfere with each other.

  • Can I Install a Reese 16K Slider 5th Wheel on Both a 2003 Chevy 2500 and 2006 GMC 3500
  • Yes. The 16K Reese 5th Wheel hitch will fit in your 2006 GMC Silverado 3500 with 8 foot bed. But a slider 5th wheel is not necessary for an 8 foot bed ,it can still be used of course! You can lock it in place if you wanted with Pull Pin Lock Plates, # RP58093. You will need to install Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Kit with Brackets and Rails, # RP50064-58, if you do not already have an installation kit on the 2006 GMC. I have included a link to the instructions below. You...

  • Will a Fifth Wheel Hitch and Slider from a 2005 GMC Sierra Fit a 2000 GMC Sierra
  • The 16K Reese Fifth Wheel, part # RP30047, will work fine with a 2000 GMC Sierra, as will the Kwik Slide, part # RP30048. Fifth wheel hitches are not vehicle specific, but the installation hardware can be. The Reese Universal Fifth Wheel, part # RP30035, can be used with virtually any truck, but requires more drilling than a custom kit would. I am guessing you are purchasing the 16K Hitch and Kwik Slide from someone with a 2005 Sierra. After these two parts, you will need a bracket...

  • Is all the Installation Hardware Included with the Reese 20K Fifth Wheel Hitch RP30083
  • The Reese 20K Fifth Wheel with Slider, part # RP30083, is just the hitch. Since installation kits are specific to vehicles, they are sold separately. For a 2010 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6 foot bed, you use part # RP50064-58 as your install kit. It includes custom fit brackets that bolt through and around the truck frame, as well as the rails that sit in the truck bed for the hitch to attach to. If you order part # 30083 and part # 50064-58 you will have everything you need to install...

  • Troubleshooting a Sticking Handle On a Reese 16k 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch by Reese, item # 30047, has a groove in the handle that a latch rotates into. If the latch is not rotated toward the rear of the truck then the handle will not move and hitching should not be possible. If the latch was not rotated and hitching was attempted then some of the handle parts could have been bent. During normal hitching you should not move the handle out. You should back the truck slowly into the trailer and allow the hitch to move the handle out. Once...
