Video Transcript for Reese Gooseneck RP30138 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese elite series under bed gooseneck trailer hitch head kit, has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now this gooseneck trailer hitch head is designed to specifically fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks that have either the original equipment Ford rails or the Reese elite series rails. Now the Reese elite series rails we also sell separately on our website, part number RP30126. This is an under bed design, so it ensures full access to your truck bed when this gooseneck ball is removed from the hitch head. It is a bolt in no drill installation, includes all the mounting hardware right here to install the head to the under bed rails. The pop in ball, gooseneck ball right here fits securely. It's very easy to insert and remove.

All you have to do is right here on the ball itself, you lift, turn this lever to unlock it. Then you just drop it in there and then when you turn it, it'll lock it right into place, keeps it from rotating or moving around. Uses the built-in ball bearing system. To remove it, just pull up rotate it and you can see there's the ball bearing system that it uses to lock it into place. Just drop it in, turn it, simple as that.

Does come with the two safety chain hook ups, they are included. These attach directly to the power pucks built into your gooseneck rails for simple mounting and removal. Then you just hook your safety chains to these hooks. Comes also with this nice rubber cover. Just remove the ball. The rubber cover's nice because it'll keep this ball hole free from any dirt or debris building up in it when the ball is removed.

Again you just pop that on there and then since all this is underneath the bed, you have full truck bed access. Comes with this nice heavy duty storage bag, which will keep the ball in good condition when it's not being used and it's easy to access. Few specs on this, the towing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or tongue weight capacity is 6,250 pounds and the ball diameter is your standard two and 5/16 gooseneck ball size. But again just to show you how this would work, just pull up on this to unlock that, drop it into place, turn it, and it locks it into place. But that should do it for the review on the Reese elite series under bed gooseneck trailer hitch head kit with a 25,000 pound weight capacity..

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

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

Perfect fit for my 2012 Ram 2500 with Ramboxes! Allows me to use a the Ford OEM Companion #BWRVK3300 to haul a camper with the sidewinder and still have the option to have a removable gooseneck ball. Couldn’t be happier! Thanks again! 619604

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

Great hitch to convert your Reece elite puck system to a gooseneck. Plastic cover is pointless and doesn’t stay down, but it’s not needed anyway. 660919

Great hitch. Very heavy and sturdy. Fits my 2016 F350 with factory puck system like a glove. Very easy drop into pucks and lock into place. The hitch separates into two pieces to make it able to be installed or removed by one person, but two are better. We tow a 16,00 pound 5th wheel with this hitch. 539826

So far so good. The only problem was finding safety chain hooks that fit the safety hookups. I gave up and used heavy duty d-rings instead.

Picked up hitch today at shipping depot. Everything was exactly as described. Have purchased this model of Reese hitch prior so am a satisfied returning customer.

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.

The safety chain loops are not big enough to accept the safety hooks for my 24' stock trailer. Easy to install but they need to reengineer the loops. 22987

Why cant you just place a second larger link through that hoop that your chain hook will fit in?

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

I have owned B&W, Curt and Reese Hitches for 5th wheel trailers. When I recently purchased a toy hauler I needed a heavy duty hitch for the 20,000# load. I decided to spend the extra money and get the Reese because of previous good experience and fitting the installed pucks in my F350. The Reese felt very light when I unpacked it. The parts are all made in China or Mexico. Assembly and installation took 25 min. The release mechanism feels cheap. It is difficult to make sure the pin is fully seated in the hitch. 2x it looked seated and I was able to install the locking pin and the trailer came out of the hitch! I always do a test pull in forward and reverse before pulling out onto the road. First time it came out I caught it on the test pull, second time it looked good w the test pull but 30' down the driveway it came out and crushed my bedside and tailgate. I would recommend the B &W or Curt before buying the more expensive but inferior Reese. 397426

My entire experience with etrailer.com was excellent. I spent numerous hours researching the hitch and tonneau cover set up I wanted for my 2014 Ford F250. The majority of my time was on the etrailer.com website reviewing Q&A, installation guidance and videos, and expert advise. I chose the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitch and the BakFlip F1 tonneau cover. Both products arrived within 10 business days. Installation was as easy and straightforward as expected. The BakFlip F1 really dresses up my F250 and the BakFlip technology makes it very easy to use and gives me full access to my truck bed as needed. The Reese hitch has performed flawlessly. 132420

Will try to keep this as real as it gets out there. 2015 F250 XLT Crew Cab 8' Bed Ordered the Reese Elite Gooseneck and Barger 90 degree wiring harness. Received the gooseneck hitch and harness quickly. Free shipping got here in two days. Item came in two boxes. The rails were poorly packaged. Box was basically open and beat to hell, leaving markings on the rails' paint. Didn't bother me, but might others. The pucks were loose in the box and were lucky they did not fall out. The second box with the ball, ball mount, harness and misc. hardware was packed so well it took about 5 minutes to take off all the staples and then each product was individually boxed inside. Wish they would treat the rail box with the same care. Instructions are ok. Used the online install video instead. The video is slightly simplified as getting the nuts on the bolts is a slight challenge for a one man install. I was able to do the entire installation by myself with the exception of the four rail-to-frame bolts. Getting these snugged up to the point of being able to torque took two people simply because the nuts are hidden on the backside of the rail...particularly the driver-side front...which is slightly behind the gas tank, but still accessible. My F250 is factory lifted 4-5" so I did not have to remove the rear wheels, nor did I have to remove the spare tire or heat shield. Lower trucks will need the rear wheels pulled. Installing the ball mounting plate took some doing. Got one bolt on then decided to actually install the ball into the plate from above pulling the plate tight below. I used vice grips to basically keep the plate mounted tight rather than trying to lift it from underneath with one had and bolt it with the other. For me the most time consuming part of the project was getting the darned bed bolts off to lift the right side. Broke the T50 bit they supplied and then two others. Finally gave up and ground off two of the remaining bolts...and ordered replacements. Tip for those doing this on their own, you may want to spray the bolts from under with PB Blaster the day before you intend to install. I forgot and the issue was likely that the bolts were rusted. The wiring harness was a breeze, although I wish a shorter version was available. (Perhaps I missed it). Had to loop/zip tie about 2-3' under the bed. Connecting between the factory connectors did require me to pull the mounting plate. Was a bit tight to just slip the new connector in. Also, working the harness thru the hole in the bed side was a bit tight. Install probably took 10 minutes after getting the holes drilled. Total install time for this slightly skilled guy was about 3-1/2 hours...after the bed bolts fiasco. Oh...and did it all with a cast on the left arm. Ha! Now to see how she tows! 430852

I have installed this hitch 4 times. It is a solid piece. With a little care in the mounting adjustments, there are no rattles or noises, even when the camper is not connected. The only problem I have is the instructions indicated drilling 4 3" inch holes in the bed. A 2 1/4" set of holes is more appropriate. They leave too much room for installation error. I mount the rails below and use a pointed bolt from the bottom to mark the hole location to drill the bed. Other than that - I think this is a great hitch. 125537

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

Extremely easy to install, you just pull up the release tab on the top of the ball and turn it 1/4 turn so that it sits atop the ball, then drop the shaft into the receiver on your truck. Once it's fully seated the release tab can be returned to it's seated position* and you're ready to use it. * If the release tab does not return to it's original position then you didn't get the shaft seated deep enough into the receiver. 727773

I ordered a Reese 26.5k Fifthwheel hitch. It was delivered quickly. It came in four pieces; Platform, fifthwheel, handle and wiring harness. I have a puck system in my truck so install was simple and easy, maybe 20 minutes, as I did confirm that all nuts and bolts were tightened to specs. Once I am able to hook to our 24,000 lb RV, I will review how well it handles the weight and it durability. I gave it 4 stars as it appears to be free of mechanical defects, it does appear to be a solid fifthwheel hitch, and it is simple to break down for removal from truck bed if needed. If it tows well and handles the weight of our RV, I will revise my rating to 5 stars. 726541

  • 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.

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.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Setup for a 2014 Ford F-350 without Factory Prep Package
  • The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30126 that you referenced is compatible with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550024 that you are interested in. I confirmed this with my contact at Reese. This will be a great setup to use for the short bed on your 2014 Ford F-350. The great thing about the setup that you are looking at is that you can add the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit # RP30138 so that you can tow a gooseneck hitch as well!

  • Installation Kit and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ford F250
  • The custom install rail kit for the Reese Elite hitch is # RP30126 and will work with Reese Elite and Signature Series 5th wheel and gooseneck trailer hitches. The proper hole size to drill is 2-3/4 inches (page 5 in the instructions) and you will see a link to the instructions. If you plan on adding a gooseneck trailer hitch head, it's part # RP30138. It's an underbed gooseneck hitch that includes the removable Pop-In ball, mounting hardware and safety chain loops. The gross towing...

  • 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.

One for the Rail kit part # RP30126 and for the gooseneck portion as well part # RP30138. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Not at all, I checked the installation instructions for the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit # RP30138 and you will not need to remove the bed of your truck to install this hitch in your 2013 Ford Super Duty with the Underbed Rail Kit part # RP30126. You might need to lower the spare while torquing the install hardware, but that's it.

  • Under-Bed 5th Wheel Kit for a 2013 Ford Super Duty
  • Thank you for sending the pictures. Your truck does not have the under-bed rail kit for the fifth wheel prep package. If you would like to add an under-bed fifth wheel kit to your 2013 Ford Super Duty, you can install the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail Kit, # RP30126. This will provide the 4 pucks in the bed just like the fifth wheel prep package that is offered by Ford. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. For a fifth wheel hitch, you can use the Reese Elite...

Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit, # RP30138, in your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory puck system. This offers a bolt-in, no drill installation which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your truck. Just one hole in the bed for the gooseneck...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package
  • The king pin is the large pin on the trailer. For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit the 2012 Ford F-250 with the factory prep package you have a couple of options. First, the prep package was designed for use with the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches. If you have a long bed truck use # RP30142 with an 18k capacity or # RP30871 with a 26.5k capacity. If you have a short bed then you will need a slider, # RP30144, with an 18k capacity. The other option is to use an adapter,...

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Towing Options for 2012 Ford F250 Short Bed W/ Ford Factory Tow Prep Pkg
  • For the 6 foot 8 inch truck bed, you would need either use a sliding fifth wheel hitch or install a Reese Sidewinder in place of your existing pin box on your fifth wheel. If you don't use a sliding hitch, the front corners of the trailer loft can contact the rear of cab during turns. Which can be hard on the trailer as well as the truck. For more information about the Sidewinder, take a look at the article I've linked. If you use the Sidewinder, you would be able to use the B&W # BWRVK3300. B&W...

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.

  • 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, there are a few options: 19K # ST400-SW19K 16K...

  • Is a Sidewinder Required for a 2011 Ford F-350 with Short Bed
  • While you don't need a Sidewinder pin box for a 7' bed, we do recommend using at least a sliding 5th wheel hitch for any bed size that is smaller than 8'. A Sidewinder can be used with any size truck bed but the only time that it is needed is when the truck bed is shorter than 6-1/2'. Since your 2011 Ford F-350 has a 7' bed I recommend at least going with a sliding 5th wheel hitch. If you don't already have a 5th wheel hitch or base rails I highly recommend installing the Under-Bed Rail...

  • 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.

  • Converting a 2015 Ford F-350 with Gooseneck Hitch to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Gooseneck and fifth wheel hitches are for the most part separate hitches. The exception is the factory system available on trucks as an option, but this is directly from the factory and not an aftermarket product. There is the Reese Elite that you mentioned, part # RP30126, that's an aftermarket puck system very similar to the factory system. It even has a goosneck head, part # RP30138, that can be added to have both hitches. But there aren't any universal puck systems that can be added...

  • 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...

  • 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.

Or if you have the Ford Hitch Prep package with the gooseneck hitch built into then all you would need is the # RP30137.

  • 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.

  • 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...
