Video Transcript for Husky Fifth Wheel Installation Kit HT30686 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Husky Universal Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. These base rails will install in your truck bed to provide necessary attachment points for your 5th wheel trailer hitch. These rails will work with either a 4-bolt or a 10-bolt installation kit. These are compatible with the above-bed 5th-wheel hitches from Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley. They are a sturdy steel construction. Have a nice black powder coated finish to help resist corrosion.

This part includes the 2 base rails. It does require an installation kit that has the brackets and the hardware. Those are all sold separately. What I would recommend to do is go on on our website, use our fit guide, put in your year, make and model vehicle, and it will show you the correct installation kit needed to install these on your vehicle. Total length on these base rails is 43 inches long. That should do it for the review on the Husky Universal Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches..

I ordered rails and brackets to install a 5th wheel hitch in my '05 Silverado. The items were exactly as advertised and fit perfectly. This installation was not a small job but having the correct frame bracket kit made it come out just right. 215851

  • Recommended Mounting Bracket Kit for Husky Base Rails on 2015 Ram 2500
  • If you have the Husky Unversal Base Rails # HT30686, I recommend the Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit # HT32556, which is custom-fit for your 2015 Ram 2500. These brackets will use existing holes in the truck's frame to minimize drilling and reduce installation time. If you do not have the Husky Base Rails, you will want to determine the manufacturer of your existing base rails, as the bolt patterns can differ between manufacturers. If this is the case, please let me know what base...

  • Can Old Single Pivot HiJacker Ultra Slide be Converted to the Double Pivot Head
  • It looks like you have and older version of # DM6076P-UL-16K. I spoke with my contact over at Demco and he said that you can indeed replace the saddle on your hitch with # DM5990 and the head with # DM6076 to have a double pivot head to your hitch. No other parts will be needed.

  • Replacement Husky 5th Wheel Base Rail Kits
  • Base rails are sold in pairs, either as complete kits with brackets like # HT31404-686, or as a pair of rails only like # HT30686. They are not offered individually. If one rail was damaged during towing I recommend replacing both rails, just for safety. If it was just a case of some heavy cargo in the bed damaging one rail then you can just get the rail-only kit # HT30686 and have a spare. All industry standard base rails (ISRs) are made with the same specs but different brands...

  • Where Does the Husky 5th Wheel Bracket Kit # HT31413 Install on a 2011 Dodge Ram
  • The Husky rails, # HT30686, do sit in the bed of the truck. They will be bolted through the bed to the under bed brackets which are bolted to the truck frame. The brackets will not interfere with the spare tire at all. The hitch pins in the same as it currently does. All installation kits that have above the bed rails or require them will also require below the bed brackets. These are not to be confused with systems that are nearly completely under the bed such as # RP30852 for the...

  • Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for 2002 Ford F150
  • The part you've asked about, # HT30686 is the bed mounted fifth wheel base rails only. It does not include the frame mounting brackets or the installation hardware. For the complete kit that's compatible with your truck, you'd want # HT31409-686. The install rails are compatible with fifth wheel hitches that use industry standard rails, which includes Valley, Husky, Reese and Curt, among others. If your truck currently has a Gooseneck hitch with a 2-5/16 inch ball that sits in the...

  • The Husky Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # HT31406-686 fits your 2001 Ford F-250, though it is likely you will need to remove your gooseneck hitch as the brackets will almost certainly interfere.

  • Can I Just Add Slider Legs To My Husky 26K Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch By Replacing the Legs?
  • The good news is that you don't need special rails, you can just buy the custom brackets and use the rails you have assuming they are husky brand rails. They should look like part # HT30686. The Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 is # HT31413. The Husky 10 Composite Slider for Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Travel - 26,000 lbs, # HT32042, that you reverenced is a confirmed fit for your truck as well. You can...

  • Moving 5th Wheel Rails Between Vehicles
  • The Husky Universal Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 4 Bolt or 10 Bolt # HT30686 or other manufacturer rails are able to be used on multiple vehicles as long as you have the brackets for that vehicle or the universal brackets. If you need the new universal brackets and hardware, I recommend the Husky Universal Mounting Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # HT31563. For your rails, you will need the hardware as that is only intended for one time use. That part is # RP58430.

  • Husky Base Rails are Not Fitting on a 2013 Ford F-150
  • The brackets from the Husky Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # HT31564-686 that install on the frame of your 2013 Ford F-150 will sit on top of the frame with the flange on the outside of the frame where it matches up with existing holes in your F-150's frame. You might want to make sure that you have the brackets oriented in the correct position and that you are not using the left bracket on the right side or the other way around. You will then be able to install the base rails...

  • If your 2014 Ford F-250/350 is not the Diesel model, and you have the Husky Base Rails # HT30686, then the Custom Mounting Bracket Kit # HT31412 you referenced will fit and work well on your truck. This kit will allow you to install the base rails to your truck bed, which will in turn provide the attachment points for a fifth-wheel hitch like Husky 26K # HT31318-31325 if you have an 8 foot bed. If you have a short bed, I instead recommend a sliding hitch like the Husky # HT31318-32042,...

The Husky part is # HT31407-686, which includes the rails, under-bed brackets and hardware. This custom kit will save you a lot of drilling and reduce your overall install time by several hours....

  • Valley Rails Not Working with Husky Universal 5th Wheel Install Kit on 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The Husky that makes 5th wheels and install kits now is not the same Husky that was under the Valley umbrella. Valley closed up shop a while back. We always discourage mixing rail and bracket manufacturers for reasons like this and because the parts aren't tested together so the capacity is technically unknown. I would go with Husky rails to match the bracket set, # HT30686. These rails have a multitude of holes in the tops and side flanges for all types of installation scenarios. Compare...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch in Bed of 2018 Ford F-150
  • We have just what you'll need to install your Husky fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your 2018 Ford F-150. The recommended custom install fifth wheel rail kit for your truck from Husky is the part # HT32858-686. Since this is a custom install kit it will be much easier to install than a universal kit. If you already have the rails the bracket kit you'd want is the part # HT32858.

  • Recommended Husky Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Long Bed
  • For your 2001 Dodge Ram 2500, Husky Towing recommends their fifth wheel install kit, using the # HT31404 hardware and # HT30686 bed rails. To install a 7-way trailer connector in the bed of your truck, I would recommend the # 51-97-411 fifth wheel wiring harness. I have linked you to an install video showing the wiring being installed on a similar Ram truck.

  • Husky Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation to Replace Valley 4 Bolt Rail

  • Custom Mounting Bracket Kit Needed to Install Husky Universal Base Rails in 2013 Ford F-250

As long as the above-bed rails that you have are the Husky Universal Base Rails for 5th Wheel Hitch # HT30686, the Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # HT31408 is what you will need to install the rails in your 2013 F-250.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail and Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • We do not recommend mixing bracket and rail manufacturers. If you install the Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit # HT31413 in your 2003 Dodge Ram you would also need the Husky Universal Base Rails # HT30686. Or if you have Reese rails and want a custom bracket kit for your truck you would want the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket kit part # RP50140 if you have the inboard style rails, or if you have the outboard style rails (the taller ones) you would want the # RP56011.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Options for a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with 3 Inch Body Lift
  • At this time my fifth wheel hitch manufacturers do not offer a fifth wheel installation kit that is compatible with trucks with body lifts. It may be possible to install a set of fifth wheel base rails in the bed of your 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, however the frame brackets would have to be custom made. If you are not experienced or familiar with this type of work, I recommend going to a custom fabrication shop to have the brackets made and installed. Another issue that you will...

  • Recommended Base Rails to Use with Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit on 2007 Dodge Ram
  • The Husky Universal Base Rails # HT30686 that you referenced feature bolt holes that can be used for either a 4 bolt or 10 bolt installation kit. I spoke with my contact at Husky and she stated that Husky has never manufactured a base rail model that features just the 10 bolt system mounting holes and without the 4 bolt system that would have the 3 center holes at each end. With this in mind, you likely don't actually have Husky rails, but possibly a Reese model like # RP58058. To use...

  • The best option I have for you to install the Husky 16K 5th Wheel Hitch on your 2012 Ford F-250 would be to use the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit part # C16424-204 which is a custom fit kit so no drilling is required. I assume you have Husky Base Rails part # HT30686 and if that is the case then the frame brackets that go with these, the Husky Semi-Custom Mounting Bracket Kit part # HT31408, require drilling. It is not recommended to mix base rails and frame brackets so your best...
