Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Ram 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing how to install Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails, part number DM8552025-71. This is what our rails look like when they're installed. These are going to provide a connection point for your slider for fifth wheel. They're going to install fairly simple. Here are all your brackets from underneath the bed, and your rails on top are going to be powder-coated finish to resist rust and corrosion. They're going to come with all the necessary hardware to get it installed, and mounts to existing holes that are already in the frame.The first we're going to do is start our installation.


B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F350, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the BMW Companion fifth-wheel hitch with a prep pack. Part number is BWRVK3300. Most people are going to choose this style with the prep pack because you're not going to have to take up the room in your bed to get the rails going across the front and the back. If you have the prep package, this is definitely the way that you want to go, get something that's just going to drop in, pivot the arms in place, and you're set. You're ready to tow. When comparing the Companion to other drop-in style fifth-wheel hitches, this is by far the most popular.


B and W Companion 5th-Wheel Hitch Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the BMW Companion OEM Fifth Wheel hitch for the Ford Super Duty prep package. This is going to work for 2011 and newer vehicles. Part number is BWRVK3300. Most people are going to choose this style with the prep package, but you're not going to have to take up the room in your bed to get the rails going across the front and the back. If you have the prep package, this is definitely the way that you want to go get something that's just going to drop in. Pivot the arms in place and you're set and ready to tow.

  • Can A Fifth Wheel Trailer Be Used with a Ford F-150 Supercrew 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate if you would...

  • Ram Truck Factory Puck System for 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The Ram OEM 5th wheel puck system, shown in the linked photo and article, was launched in 2013 so what you have in your truck is likely to be an aftermarket installation of some kind. These newer Ram trucks with the factory prep can directly accept a specialized 5th wheel hitch such as the B&W # BWRVK3600 or the Curt # C16545-16021. Such hitches drop right into those factory pucks, allowing you to completely remove the hitch for a clear bed when necessary for cargo. Without seeing the...

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • Did Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package Come on the F-250s or Short Bed Trucks
  • The factory underbed prep package was available on the F-250 and F-350 but only on the long beds. The aftermarket kit, # RP30126, can be installed on the short bed models. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. This kit does not include the gooseneck hitch portion, only the 5th wheel portion. To add the gooseneck you would need # RP30138.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Ford Super Duty Hitch Prep Package Long Bed
  • I would recommend the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3300 that was designed to fit the underbed rail kit of your Ford F-350. The Companion is generally referred to as the nicest fifth wheel hitch on the market so I would highly recommend it for you. It has a 20k capacity so it would have more than enough capacity for your 14k trailer. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package and Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Since the trailer comes with the Reese Revolution pin box you will need a fixed hitch, not a slider, and a custom wedge to match the hitch. The wedge prevents the trailer from turning at the hitch so that it turns 22 inches further back allowing you to make tight turns without needing a slider. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package on Ford trucks including your 2017 F-350 I recommend the Reese Elite hitch # RP30142. And for a custom wedge use # SWW-01.

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch
  • You have two options for installing the RBW Lil Rocker in your 2007 Ford F-150 pickup. You can use the Universal Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit with Rails, item # RP30035, or the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Brackets - Ford F-150, item # RP50081-58 that you referenced. I would recommend you use the Custom Brackets # RP50081-58, these will install in about half the time of the universal rails and will minimize the drilling into your 2007 Ford F-150. I have...

  • Do all Fifth Wheel Rails have the Same Dimensions
  • Most fifth wheel rails are made to the same industry standard dimensions. They aren't all though. If you measure 22 inches on center between the two rails and they look like the rails of the # RP30035 that you referenced they would be the industry standard. These rails can fit hitch brands Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky.

  • Are Replacement Parts Available For the RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Replacement parts for the RBW Lil Rocker are no longer available. RBW Industries, the manufacturer of the Lil Rocker, was acquired by AL-KO Kober Corp and the fifth wheel lines were discontinued. You may be able to find replacement parts on private ad sites or auction sites, but new replacement parts are not available. If you would consider a new fifth wheel hitch, we have several options that you may be interested in. An economical hitch that has a similar design to the Lil Rocker...

  • Gooseneck Ball for a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Factory Prep Package
  • There are a couple of ball kit options that fit the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package on your 2016 Ram 3500. I recommend the Curt kit, # C60618, which is the ball, safety chain tie downs, and a cover for the ball hole when the ball is not being used. (None of balls the fit the OEM system will hide in the ball cavity like the Turnover ball hitches from B&W.) You can also use the Reese kit # RP30140 which also includes the tie downs and cover but also includes a storage bag....

  • Difference Between Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kits for 2017 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • Both the Reese fifth wheel rail install kits are a fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed without the factory rail kit. The difference is that the part # RP56017-53 costs a little more, installs much easier since the frame brackets mount to the outside of the frame, but also gives you a larger rail in the bed of your truck. The part # RP50074-58 on the other hand costs less, gives you a smaller rail in the bed of your truck, but will be a bit harder to install since the brackets mount...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with RamBox and 6-Foot Bed
  • A short bed truck by itself can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited front-to-back clearance between the truck cab and the trailer's overhang. When we add the Rambox feature we also add another complication: reduced side-to-side clearance. Hitch makers like Reese, Curt and B&W discourage use of 5th wheels in such trucks; that said, there are those that have satisfactorily installed 5th wheels anyway. The best solution for the turning clearance problem in such trucks...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2018 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034-53. This will be a custom fit that will allow you to install the brackets without drilling into your frame. Once you have the 5th wheel base rails installed, a number of different hitch options are available, but you will want a sliding hitch because you have a short bed truck. If you want a hitch that will automatically slide for you...

  • Can Fifth Wheel Bed Rails Be Removed When Hitch is Not Being Used
  • When the Reese 5th wheel hitch is removed from the bed rails, the rails will remain in the truck bed. Once the rails are installed by bolting them through the bed to the frame brackets and tightened to their specified torque, they need to remain in place. Removing the bed rails repeatedly would cause undue stress on the mounting hardware thus weakening it, which is why the hardware is rated for a one-time use only. Using the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • For your new 2017 Ford F-250 short bed you have some options for 5th wheel hitches and installation kits. For an install kit I recommend going with a custom kit, # RP50074-58. With a custom kit there is less drilling required and it takes less time to install compared to universal kits. And for a hitch I recommend the Reese Titan 20 # RP30870. This hitch is rated for 20,000 pounds, features the super-secure serrated dual jaw design, and it is cushioned. I have linked a video review of...

  • Trailer Hitch Options for a 2012 Ford F-350 With Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The fifth wheel prep package that you have on your 2012 Ford F-350 is compatible with the Reese Elite Series fifth wheel hitches. There are three Elite Series fifth wheel hitches that are available, the Elite Series 18K hitch, # RP30142, Elite Series 18K Slider, # RP30144, and the Elite Series 26.5K hitch, # RP30871. If your fifth wheel trailer weighs more than 18,000 lbs when it is fully loaded, then you will need the 26.5K hitch. If you have a short bed truck, then you will need the...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Options for a 2014 Ram 3500 Short Bed with OEM Prep Package
  • You have a couple of options since your 2014 Ram 3500 short bed came with the factory prep package. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package you can use Curt 16K hitch # C16515-16021 or # C16520-16021, 20K hitch # C16530-16021, or 24K hitch # C16545-16021. You could also use B&W 25K hitch # BWRVK3600. But with any of the above options, because they are all fixed hitches, you would have to also use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer. A Sidewinder moves the pivot...

  • Differences between Curt Q20 Slider Hitch and Reese R16 Slider Hitch
  • To address your concern about the compatibility of the Reese R16 Slider Hitch, # RP30869, with the Curt Custom Rail Kit, # C16448-204, they are compatible with each other. The above bed base rails that are used with the Curt Custom kits are the industry standard above bed rails that are used by Reese and other fifth wheel hitch manufacturers. The custom aspect of the Curt rail kit is the brackets. There is no drilling (into the frame) required to install the custom brackets and they...

  • 5th Wheel Rail & Hitch Compatibility for 2017 GMC Sierra 2500
  • You can install an industry-standard 5th wheel hitch in any brand of above-bed base rails. All such industry standard rails (ISRs) will work with any hitch that is designed for such above-the-bed installation. Such an install kit from Curt is part # C16411-204. Now, in a truck like your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with the 5th wheel prep package you will instead use an adapter # C16023. This adapter drops into the factory installed pucks in the bed and provides the equivalent of standard base...
