Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel Installation Kit DM6071 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Universal Above-Bed Base Rails for Demco Premier Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches. Now, these base rails will provide the necessary attachment points to install your Demco Hijacker Premier Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch to. They also are compatible with the B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed fifth wheel trailer hitches. This kit includes everything shown here, the two rails, all the mounting hardware. Now the mounting brackets to install this onto your vehicle, we do sell those separately on our website. They are required for installation of these rails.

What I would recommend to do is go to our website, use our fit guide, putting your year and model vehicle and it will show you the correct mounting brackets you would need to install these rails to your vehicle. You can see the rails are a nice glossy, black, powder coast steel, which helps resist corrosion. These parts are made in the USA and again it comes with all the hardware and a nice set of detailed instructions that describe on how to install it. That should do it for the review on the Universal Above Bed Base Rails for the Demco Premier Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches.

These rails were just what I needed to finish installing my new Demco hitch. I thought my rails from my old Hi-Jacker would work but that wasn't the case. E-trailer got these to me in a week with free shipping. Great service and a fantastic website. Thanks

  • Is There an Installation Template That Comes With the Demco 5th Wheel Brackets DM8552031?
    The Demco Hijacker Premier Series Custom Mounting Brackets for 5th Wheel Above-Bed Base Rails # DM8552031 will actually mount to existing holes in the frame of your 2020 Ford F-250. However, a template is included to get the holes drilled for the rails. Speaking of which, if you do not have Demco rails, I suggest going with the # DM6071 rails kit. These will mate to the # DM8552031 very nicely and will complete the set-up. I do have to mention that the manufacturer of the brackets does...

    It was a good idea to check and I'm glad you did because we do have the correct custom Demco 5th wheel mounting brackets for your 2017 Ford F-350, though they are a bit different than the part number you mentioned, which are actually for Nissans. So instead, for your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty, the part you need is the following: - Demco Hijacker Premier Series Custom Mounting Brackets # DM8552031 These are exactly what you need for your truck, and the brackets will indeed work with...

  • How to Use Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch in Factory Pucks on 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500
    How does your current Demco Hijacker Autoslide mount? If it's meant to attach to industry standard bed rails such as those provided with # DM6071, you'll need a puck to rail adapter like # DM6333. If your hitch side plates are meant for the Demco underbed mounts, you'll need to remove them and install the above bed mount side plates, part # DM6003 which will fit into the slots provided by the # DM6333.

  • Can a Sliding Hitch Be Used in a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with 5.5' Bed
    The best set-up for a 2022 Chevrolet 1500 with a 5.5' bed is going to be to use a fixed hitch with a rotating pin box because that is going to be what provides for the most turning clearance. But since you already have a sliding hitch you can try that first. As long as your hitch attaches to industry standard rails then you will be able to use it with your 2022 Chevrolet 1500 with a 5.5' bed. You would just need industry standard rails in your bed, which you can get using the Demco Hijacker...

  • Recommended Demco Custom Brackets and Base Rails for Hijacker FWH 24PA 5th Wheel Hitch
    You are correct. The Demco Custom Bracket Kit # DM8552028 is a fit for your 2018 Ford F150 with 6-1/2 foot bed. This will give you the correct brackets. The only issue is that you will also need new hardware for your rails and that is not sold individually. So you will either need to get the # DM6014 rails to get all the hardware for your installation as the # DM6071 and the kit # DM8552028-71 are a fit for industry standard rails and your Demco Hijacker FWH 24PA hitch is not and industry...

  • Do Demco Base Rails on 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed Allow Use of 16k and 21k 5th Wheel Hitch
    Yes, you can definitely use either a 16,000 lb or 21,000 lb capacity 5th wheel hitch in your 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 that has the Demco 6071 base rails that come in the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552011-71. For a short bed truck, it is really hard to go with anything else than an auto-sliding hitch, which is also from Demco. These don't have a 16k option, but you can go with either the 18k or 21k hitch: - 18,000 lb Capacity: Demco...

  • Replacement Fifth Wheel Brackets and Rails for a 2018 Ram 2500
    We definitely have options available for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the short bed and no prep package. That being said, rails and brackets cannot be mixed and matched between different manufacturers. As you mentioned having an auto slide hitch, it led me to Demco. I suggest going with the Demco Above Bed Rails and custom brackets # DM8552025-71 if you are unsure of what brand the original set is. This is a custom fit part and will require no drilling into the frame of the vehicle. I included...

  • Which 5th Wheel Base Rails are Compatible with Demco DM8552025 Frame Brackets for 2017 Ram 2500
    The Demco # DM8550043 Recon 5th wheel hitch is compatible with industry standard bed rails such as those provided with the Demco # DM8552025-71 bracket/rail kit. The kit combines the # DM8552025 brackets along with the # DM6071 industry standard rails. The hitch fits on industry standard rails from Reese, Husky, Valley, B&W, Demco ISR and Curt, among others, but if you use Demco frame brackets, you'll want to use bed rails from the same manufacturer. The brackets and rails aren't capacity...

  • Compatibility of Demco Custom Brackets with Base Rails for a Demco Recon on a 2016 Ram 3500
    If you already have the Demco Above-Bed Base Rails # DM6071 then you would just need the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Custom Mounting Brackets # DM8552026 that you referenced to mount the Demco Recon # DM8550043 in your 2016 Ram 3500. These custom mounting brackets will also work if you have the older Demco Base Rails # DM6014. If you don't already have a 7-Way connector in the bed of your Ram then I also recommend installing the Bargman # 50-97-410 to make connecting and disconnecting...

You will have to change your existing older style rails for universal rails that will fit newer style hitches. The Universal Above-Bed Base Rails for Demco # DM6071 will work great, as this will bolt up to your current brackets. For the 5th wheel hitch itself, I recommend either the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16120 or the...

The bracket/rail kit has a 25K capacity per the folks at Demco, so you'll have some capacity to spare. You'll want to keep in mind- for a short bed truck, unless your 5th wheel has the concaved-in front corners and the 5th wheel manufacturer specifically states that a sliding hitch isn't necessary, you might not...

The Demco Recon will mount to the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500 using standard bedrails, like the Demco Universal Bed Rails, # DM6071.

For the Demco above the bed rails, if you have an aluminum bed, you will need a vinyl strip which is included with the brackets because the manufacturer requires it.
