My rails were allready installed when I bought the truck so this is only for the gooseneck kit. This product is made in China but the workmanship is very good. Shipping was fast and all hardware was correct and included. One major problem I had was the measurement in the instructions to locate the 3 1/2 hole was off by 5/8 of an inch to far foward which would have screwed up the bed with a huge oblong hole. I have a Ford which have dimples marking the drill locations but I also have sprayed bed-liner which covers up the dimples so I was very careful and drilled the pilot hole from the underside using the dimple. Once the hitch hole was drilled installation was quick and easy but you will need a helper to hold the hitch in place until you get the washers and nuts started. 682034

I have a 2016 Ford F250. My truck didn't come installed with any hitch equipment other than the stock bumper hitch. I insulted Reese Elite Series rails under the bed and have pulled my 5th wheel just fine since. Recently, I purchased a new 5th wheel trailer and the dealer tossed in an Andersen Ultimate Hitch 2. The only problem is that my truck hasn't been equipped with a gooseneck hitch. This product solves that problem, integrates with my current setup, and is incredibly easy to install. Can't wait to test it out on the road this weekend. Here's my current setup: 2016 Ford F250 Air Lift Air Ride System with compressor Reese Elite Rails with Gooseneck Hitch Kit 448210

Awesome!! Quick shipping!! Fit right in my Ford with the factory system in the bed. Easy to install. Preassembled. Works great!! Takes a little time to adjust properly the first time but once it's adjusted it takes 2 min's to put it in truck or take it out. It' worth the cost!!! 359926

Must drop landing gear to reduce trailer weight on hitch when using slider feature. Did not read this anywhere prior to using. Have no problems now. 446606

Review from a similar Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


I've now towed a few thousand miles with this fifth wheel hitch, and am very satisfied with it. The sliding mechanism works well, to get extra clearance between truck & trailer. I also like the fact that the fifth wheel pad itself can be easily detached from the rest of the frame, because that makes it possible for one person (me) to remove it in two pieces. 671168


Comments
Ive towed a few thousand more miles by now, and still very happy with this hitch. As mentioned by others, its good to lower the landing gear to reduce weightwear & tear on the hitch, prior to sliding. The nose of our 5-er is sculpted well, so rarely need to slide it for maneuvering. However, its an absolute necessity to get my 2 portable generators out of the front bay without unhooking very handy when overnighting on the road!

Not real happy with the hitch. Hitching and unhitching can be difficult. Have to hold open with a bungee cord back to the bed of the truck to get unhitched. Hitching on an angle is difficult to get the hitch to latch 735662


Comments
There is a catch to keep the handle in the open position, but it is fairly subtle. When the handle is pulled out, the catch can be activated by pushing the handle toward the tailgate of the truck.

Perfect equipment. Quick install and removal so I can use my truck to haul flat material without a fixed hitch getting in the way. I’ve been towing a 7 ton dump trailer or pulling a 28” flat bed w a 5 ton skid steer for a year now flawlessly. Highly recommended equipment and company at etrailer 736778

Wanted to leave a message about all my experiences with etrailer. I purchased a new Ford F-350 Super Duty in August and wanted a lot of aftermarket items for it. I accidentally found etrailer on the internet while searching. They have everything I was looking for. Their pricing was very competitive with free shipping on a lot of items. The last item purchased was a Reese gooseneck ball and safety chain hookup. It’s a great item, very easy to install and shipped the next day. I’m very pleased with etrailer. 571867

Review from a similar Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


My Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch arrived UPS. 143lbs and used a hand dolly to take off the truck and wheel to my garage. Came packaged ok. Pre-assembled and everything was included. Read the Manual, which for older people helps, showing lube and parts, install info etc...referring back to the manual/instructions. Used a wooden table(same height as my tailgate) to wheel it right up to the gate and slid the hitch on a piece of cardboard(from the box) into the position of the puck system. Moving the base first then the hitch plate next. The hitch install was simple and easy. Did not need any help. I did call customer service and made a slight 1/4 turn adjustment to two legs for a tighter fit. There again referring to the manual/instructions provided with the hitch. Very pleased with the hitch over all. It served its purpose and I believe will give us many years of service. We pull a 5th wheel gvwr of 11769lbs and completed over 1200 miles of safe towing. Pleased with my purchase. Thank you. 159385

Review from a similar Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather! 296158

Review from a similar Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


Item was received well packaged. All parts were received as expected. I wish I would have taken pictures of box when it was received or as I installed it on my 2015 F250 but rest assured it fit into my Ford with the 5th wheel prep package quite easily. Directions were adequate. My only issue was I did not know if the pre-asembly of the base was torqued correctly. There was no mention of it in the packaging and I do not own a torque wrench so it would have been comforting to know that it was done properly before shipment. However it appeared to be okay and I had no issues towing my 5th wheel the 15 miles from the dealership to my home. Also there is no mention prior to ordering that you need lithium grease to properly lube the moving parts. Make sure you have on hand prior to assembly. Overall, excellent product and I am definitely please with it and highly recommend it. 203214


Comments
I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase one year ago of this hitch. We have towed our 32 crusader across the country and back via different routes with no issues. I have read where others find it heavy to lift in and out of the truck bed. I would too except I remove the hitch plate to lighten the load so that I am lifting two relatively lite pieces instead of one heavy piece. We take the 5th wheel out on the road about every two months so I am happy with how I can separate the two in order to lift them in or out of the truck bed.Extremely easy to install, less than 5 minutes. I am totally satisfied with this product.

  • Availability of a Gooseneck Hitch to Fit an Under Bed Puck System
    If you have the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30126, then you will need the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP30138. This gooseneck hitch will connect between the under bed cross rails of the puck system hitch. However, if you have the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite, # RP30073, the Reese gooseneck hitch # RP30138 will not mount between rails of this rail.

  • Recommended Reese Elite Gooseneck Hitch for Reese Elite Under-Bed Rails # RP30073
    I do have a solution for you, however the Reese Under-Bed Rails # RP30073 that you have installed on your truck are not compatible with the Reese Elite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit # RP30138 referenced in your question. The gooseneck hitch will not be able to mount between the rails of this system. I instead recommend the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP30845. This has the same 25,000 pound towing capacity as the kit you were looking at and is confirmed...

  • Replacement Gooseneck Hitch Ball and Safety Chain Hook Ups for a 2011 Ford F-350 with OEM Pucks
    If you want the exact replacement then you were told correctly. The Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP30137 is the replacement gooseneck hitch ball and safety chain hook up points that you need. The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30126 along with the Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit # RP30138 is the exact same setup that you have in your 2011 Ford F-350. The kit that I mentioned above is the same hitch ball and safety chain hook ups that come with the Kit # RP30138.

  • OEM Style Reese Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Hitch Rail Kit for 2018 Ford F-250
    We actually have the same OEM rail kit for your 2018 Ford F-250 which would be your best option since you said that was what you really wanted. For that you'd need the Reese Elite Rail Kit part # RP30886 and then the Elite gooseneck hitch adapter # RP30845. Reese is actually who makes the Ford rail kits so this would give you the exact same thing at a better price.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Ford F-350 with Reese Signature Series 5th Wheel Hitch
    In order to install a gooseneck trailer hitch in your 2008 Ford F-350 you are going to have to remove the 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit. None of the Elite/Signature series gooseneck hitches will fit the install kit on your truck. But what you can use is the above-bed gooseneck trailer hitch, # RP30845. It will fit in place of the hitch so you can swap them out when needed.

  • Underbed 5th Wheel Installation Kit and Gooseneck Hitch for a 1999 Ford F-250
    It sounds like your 2012 Ford F-350 has the factory prep package that uses the underbed mount for a Reese Elite Series hitch such as # RP30142. The Reese underbed mount that fits your 1999 Ford F-250 is # RP30073. But this system cannot have the gooseneck hitch added to it. So to be able to tow a gooseneck trailer too the easiest solution is to use gooseneck plate # RP30845.

  • Adding Both a Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to a 2014 Ford F-150
    The gooseneck plate # RP30138 will not fit the under bed installation kit # RP30064 for your 2014 Ford F-150 but there are other ways to have both a gooseneck hitch and 5th wheel hitch. You can use the B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1104-5W. Then when you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer you can use companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W for a long bed truck or # BWRVK3400-5W for the slider version for a 6-3/4 foot short bed truck. I have included links to videos for all 3 of these parts for you.

    Essentially the Ford fifth wheel prep packages are the same as the Reese Elite hitches. For your 2016 Ford F-250 you would want the part # RP30126 for the fifth wheel rail setup. For a slider hitch you would want the part # RP30144 which fits the rail kit and then for a gooseneck hitch part # RP30138. The hitch also comes with a 7-way to install in the bed of your truck so you would be set.

  • Goose Box Compatibility or Options for Leland 7900 Pin Box and 2016 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    There is not a Goose Box that will fit the 14 inch width of your Leland 7900 pin box. Since your Ranch Hitch Adapter isn't allowing enough clearance, your best option to get the turning clearance you need with your short bed truck is to use the Sidewinder Fifth Wheel King Pin with Rotating Turret and then a fixed mounted 5th wheel hitch and rail kit. The Sidewinder pin boxes cannot be used with any gooseneck adapter. For the Sidewinder, we currently only have the Air Ride 16K # ST400-5AS16K...

    The only way to get more cab clearance with your 2016 Ford F-250 and your Forest River Salem 5th wheel will be to use a Sidewinder pin box and a fixed 5th wheel hitch, but this will require you to remove the B&W gooseneck hitch in the truck that your B&W Companion hitch uses and replace it with 5th wheel hitch base rails. There are some cases where people have had extensions welded to their pin box for more clearance, but this adds stress to the trailer frame, voids the trailer's warranty...

  • Recommended Under-Bed 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Mounts for 2015 Ford F250 Long Bed
    I'm not sure what Ford charges for their prep package, but we certainly offer the aftermarket version. In my experience, aftermarket parts are usually much less expensive than their OEM counterparts. Starting with the rail kit that bolts to your frame and provides the pucks, you'd need part # RP30126. If you add part # RP30138, you'd be able to tow gooseneck trailers, as well. For a fifth wheel hitch, Reese offers an 18K and a 26.5K hitch that would fit directly into the pucks, for the...
