Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Hitch Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled Fifth Wheel Hitch with slider, part number RP30144.Here's what our fifth wheel and slider looks like installed. Now, the reason you're gonna want this particular fifth wheel and slider compared to other options on the market is that if your Ford truck -- such as this one -- has the factory rail system, this drops right in with no modification to the vehicle required at all.Also, you're going to need a slider if your truck does not have an eight-foot bed. This particular truck has a six and three-quarter-foot bed.As we make sharp turns or do tight corners or pull in to gas stations, we run the risk of having the overhang of our fifth wheel contacting the cab of our truck. By having a slider in place, we move the overhang further back, giving us the necessary clearance to make those maneuvers safely without damaging our truck or our trailer.Compared to other options on the market, this one seems easier, to me, to be able to install and remove from the truck if need be -- if we want full access to our bed -- because it is lighter weight. Now, even though this is a lighter-weight unit than some other options on the market, it doesn't sacrifice quality or durability while saving weight. We still have the same capacities as other options as well.This fifth wheel hitch and slider have a capacity of an 18,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating, and a 4,500 pound max pin weight rating.


Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Speaker 1: Today on this 2017 Ford F-250, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Reese Elite Series Preassembled Fifth-Wheel Hitch with Slider, part number RP30144.Here's what our fifth-wheel and slider looks like installed. Now, the reason you're going to want this particular fifth-wheel and slider compared to other options on the market is that if your Ford truck, such as this one, has the factory rail system, this drops right in with no modification to the vehicle required at all. Also, you're going to need a slider if your truck does not have 8' bed. This particular truck has a 6-3/4' bed.As we make sure quick turns or do tight corners or pull into gas stations, we run the risk of having the overhang of our fifth-wheel contacting the cab of our truck. By having a slider in place, we move the overhang further back giving us the necessary clearance to make those maneuvers safely without damaging our truck or trailer.Compared to other options on the market, this one seems easier to me to be able to install and remove from the truck, if need be if we want full access to our bed, because it is lighter weight.

B and W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 we're gonna be taking a look, and showing you how to install, the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider, part number BWRVK3270.So here's what the Patriot looks like once we have it installed. Now this is gonna allow us to tow our 5th wheel trailer down the road safely. Now, like our truck, if you ever towed with a short bed truck, you do know that going around corners with a 5th wheel trailer does get a little squirrel-y, but luckily, if we flip this lever here, we have a slider that's built in, that's gonna give us that much more extra room, and allow us to maneuver around corners with ease. Now, it's gonna slide the full 12", getting that trailer away from our cab so we don't have to worry about crushing it.Now, our Patriot is gonna have a dual jaw mechanism. Now that's gonna have a full 360 degree kingpin contact, and it's gonna be a lot more quiet than that slider style jaw, where that bar is gonna go across and make contact that way. Now, the fully articulating head is gonna reduce all that noise, and reduce chucking while you're driving down the road.We're gonna have three different height adjustments, from 17" to 19", and that's gonna be nice so you can dial in that perfect level stance when you're towing your trailer down the road.

Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory Installed 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • There are actually several hitches available now that fit directly into the 2016 Ram factory OEM prep package. There is also an option to use a special adapter if you already have a hitch or if you plan on getting a slider hitch (for short bed trucks). The hitches that fit directly are: # BWRVK3600, rated for 25K # C16545-16021, rated for 24K # C16530-16021, rated for 20K # C16520-16021, rated for 16K, dual jaw # C16515-16021, rated for 16K, slide-bar jaw You can also use adapter...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Will PullRite SuperGlide Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit Ford F-350 With Factory Rail Kit
  • It would depend on the model Pullrite Superglide hitch you have. If it uses industry standard rails then you would need an adaptor like part # RP30156. This would lock into the puck system in the bed of the F-350 and allow you to attach the hitch. If you have a hitch that does not use industry standard rails, we do not have a rail kit that would work for you. If your SuperGlide does not use standard rails you may want to order a truck without the factory under bed kit and then contact...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Custom Install Kit For 5th Wheel Rails On 2016 GMC 2500 And Gooseneck Adapter
  • For the easiest install on your 2016 GMC 2500 Denali, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56001-53. These rails are 48 inches long and make it a little easier to install the rails to the custom brackets. If you want the traditional 43 inch length rails, the custom bracket kit I recommend for your truck is # RP50066-58. These kits come with all the hardware needed for installation. They require no drilling...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone about your 2001 Ford F-250 or F-350. Since we have a couple of air bag systems manufactured by Firestone I asked if there would be any interference when installing a fifth-wheel hitch and using the custom brackets like part # RP50082-58. My contact at Firestone said that if you have an air bag system like the # F2550 installed on your truck, they would not interfere with a fifth wheel installation because the brackets for the air bag system are installed...

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Install Kit and Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel Short Box
  • A fixed 5th wheel hitch cannot be used in your 2015 GMC Sierra Duramax diesel with 6.5-ft box. Short bed trucks like yours must use a sliding 5th wheel hitch in order to have enough clearance for tight turns. In terms of an installation kit I recommend a custom type since this will reduce overall install time and eliminate the need to drill into the truck's frame for the under-bed brackets. These will mount to existing holes in the frame. I suggest the Curt # C16411-204. For a sliding...
