What our customers are saying:

I checked around locally for the best price on a Reese 16k 5th wheel hitch with a kwik-slide for my short bed Dodge Ram. I found your website while searching for info. on 5th wheel hitches and was surprised to discover that the identical hitch was $110 cheaper, even with a shipping charge of $94.00. You folks are awesome and it only took 3 days to receive my shipment. I will definitely be back. Thanks again.

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





GMC Sierra Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers


  • Is the Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with Reese Industry Standard Rails
  • Yes, the Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # HT31326-31314 that you referenced is compatible with the Reese Custom Base Rail and Install Kit # RP50064-58. The # HT31326-31314 that you referenced is designed to fit in industry standard fifth wheel rails and the rails of the # RP50064-58 have industry standard rail dimensions so they are compatible. I attached review videos for both of these products.

  • Fifth Wheel and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2014 GMC short bed 2500 Denali
  • Absolutely, the Reese R16 Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30869 that you referenced would be an excellent choice for a slider hitch. This hitch has a round tube slider that will operate smoother than the square tube sliders and utilizes a jaw that makes 360 degrees of contact with the king pin. The Reese rail kit part # RP50066-58 that you referenced would also be an excellent choice for a rail kit. This is a custom install kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and...

  • How to Determine if a Truck has Industry Standard Above the Bed 5th Wheel Rails
  • It sounds like your 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 has standard above the bed rails for a 5th wheel hitch. Take a look at the picture I have included which shows the hitch mounting measurements for industry standard above the bed rails. If the ones in your truck bed are the same then you can install any hitch that fits in industry standard rails. Since the truck was previously owned you might just want to have a mechanic check to make sure all of rail and brackets under the bed the rails are attached...

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Sidewinder Recommendations for 2013 GMC Sierra and 2016 XLite Cougar
  • 5th wheel towing in a 5-1/2-foot bed truck like your 2013 GMC Sierra will require use of a Sidewinder replacement pin box on your trailer. A Sidewinder used along with a fixed 5th wheel hitch will actually give you far more clearance for tight turns than any slider hitch. A Sidewinder moves the trailer pivot point back a full 22-inches, more than any slider hitch. Sidewinder pin boxes are selected based on the original pin box brand and part number. You can refer to the linked article....

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit Recommendations for a 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed
  • First, you are right about installation kit # RP56001-53 being the easiest custom kit to install on your 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 short bed. Because of that I highly recommend it. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. As far as height goes for a hitch, most all 5th wheel hitches are height adjustable but on many slider hitches you cannot use the lowest setting because it would interfere with the sliding mechanism. Ideally you will want 5 or 6 inches from the tops...

  • I recommend going with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit, # RP56007-53, for your 2013 GMC Sierra Crew Cab Short Box. These custom outboard designed brackets reduce the amount of drilling during installation, ensures simple access to the mounting points, and would allow you to use the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3200, that you are interested in. Although trailer manufacturers have changed some of their designs to accommodate the short...

  • 18K Capacity Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2013 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed
  • Pro Series is an entry-level product offering of Reese. Pro Series offers a 15K # PS30093, 16K # PS30855, 20K # PS30119 and a 25K # 30862 but not an 18K fifth wheel hitch. The 15K uses a slide-bar jaw, which I don't recommend because the jaw design holds the king pin rather loosely. Not so loose that there's a danger of the king pin coming out of he hitch, but loose enough so that you'll experience quite a bit of chucking and rattling. The remainder of the hitches utilize a dual jaw setup...

  • Upgrade Current 15K Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch to Higher Capacity
  • If your current 15 or 16K hitch is a Pro Series or a Reese brand, you could remove the existing 15K head, and replace it with the 20K replacement head, part # 30118. I've spoken with my contacts in the tech services department at Reese, and they assure me that the # 30118 had will work just fine with the legs used by your 15K hitch. Going this route would allow you to save a few dollars by utilizing your old legs. Or, for a few more dollars, you could go with the entire set-up, consisting...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2013 GMC 2500HD Crew Cab 4X4 Short Bed
  • Unless the trailer you plan on towing has either a Sidewinder or a Reese Revolution pin box I can't safely recommend you install a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 in your 2013 GMC 2500HD that has a short bed because this is a non-sliding hitch that would not give you enough clearance to make 90 degree turns no matter how it is installed in the bed of your truck.

  • 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...

  • Differences Between Pro Series 20K 5th Wheel # PS30121 and Reese 20K # RP30084
  • The design of the head unit is the difference between the two fifth wheel hitches you mention. The Pro series uses a double jaw set-up to lock the king pin into place, while the Reese model uses a single hook that holds the king pin more tightly, preventing any movement of the king pin that would be felt by the driver or passengers. The funnel on the Reese unit is also much wider, which makes hitching the vehicle to the trailer easier. The entire top plate is wider, providing more stability...

  • Is Drilling Required to Install a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Above Bed Rails on a 2012 GMC Sierra
  • In order to mount rails in the bed of your 2012 GMC Sierra, you will need to drill holes through the bed. This is so the rails can attach to the underbed brackets that attach to the truck frame. For a custom installation kit, if you have a 1500 model with 8 foot bed, use # RP50064-58. If you have a 2500 HD or 3500 model with 8 foot bed use # RP50066-58.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Install Kit Recommendation for a 2012 GMC Sierra with 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • Since your truck bed is 5-1/2 feet in length you should note that to make tight turns you would need a Sidewinder pin box. The slider hitch you plan to install would not give you enough clearance. You can use a slider hitch with a Sidewinder, but you would need to leave the hitch slid forward at all times. 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...

  • Based on my research, the Pro Series 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30094 you referenced is a good fit for your 2012 GMC Sierra 1500. 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.

Reese does offer more advanced hitches such as their vibration-isolated R20 Serrated Dual Jaw system # RP30867 that grips the king pin to reduce noise and motion within the hitch.

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.

Otherwise the problem could be that the wedge is installed too far forward and is prohibiting the hitch from connecting to it.

  • Differences Between Round Tube and Square Tube Fifth Wheel Slider Hitches
  • The round tube slider will provide 12 inches of front to back travel, compared to 10 inches on a square tube slider. That could provide an extra 2 inches of turning clearance. A round tube slider will eliminate binding, which seems to allow better movement of the hitch on the slider, as compared to the square tube slider. Usually any truck that has a bed less than 8 feet long is considered a short bed truck. It is recommended for short bed trucks to use a slider fifth wheel hitch. I...

  • Mounting Hole Pattern for Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Hitch on a 2006 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed
  • The Hi Rise 5th wheel adapter # 9480-5W doesn't have holes at the corners. It mounts in a gooseneck ball hole, specifically B7W Turnover ball hitches and Reese, Draw-Tite, or Bulldog Hide-A-Goose hitches.

  • Can I Install a Reese 16K Slider 5th Wheel on Both a 2003 Chevy 2500 and 2006 GMC 3500

I have included a link to the instructions below. You...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed
  • Since you have a short bed truck you would need to either go with a slider hitch or a Sidewinder pin box replacement so that you have enough clearance to make tight turns. Since you said you want the simplest solution your best option would be the Sidewinder since it would not require you to get out of your truck and activate the slider every time you get to a parking lot. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin...

  • Replacement 5th Wheel Hitch Head Assembly to Replace Pro Series 30098 Head
  • I spoke with my contact at Cequent and he confirmed that it is possible to replace your Pro Series 5th wheel hitch head with components from the Reese Titan 5th wheel hitch. However, when I crunched the numbers I found that it is much more cost effective for you to purchase a whole new Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30867, rather than piece together a hitch for your existing legs because of all the components needed. Additionally, I recommend purchasing a new hitch to ensure...
