I recently purchased a new 2019 Ford F 150 Super crew pickup and needed to have a fifth wheel hitch installed to pull my 19' Scamp camper. With the newer aluminum bed of the pickup I was concerned with safety issues just bolting my rails to the bed and ordered the Reese 65034 Custom Quick Install Mounting Kit. I ordered it on Thursday just before lunch and it was delivered at noon on Monday fast service! Opened the box and was very happy with the quality. I read the directions and realized that I needed the longer rails so I ordered them on Monday at lunch time and they arrive today Wednesday before 1:00pm simply amazing. The crazy thing is we live 37 miles south of the Canadian border in northern Minnesota. Having the install done on Monday and I can't imagine anything going wrong. Thank You so much! 629556

  • Custom Brackets and Fifth Wheel Rails For 2019 Ram 1500 New Body Style
    If the brackets that you have purchased are not lining up on the frame of the Ram, they may not be the correct brackets or they are the correct brackets for the Ram's frame and do not fit the rails that you are re-using. If you want a kit that is guaranteed to fit the 2019 Ram 1500 New Body Style, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets part # RP56018 for the 2019 Ram 1500. These Custom Brackets only fit with the 48" base rail part # RP30153. Please keep in mind these rails...

  • Will the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails Fit a 2018 Ram 2500 Mega Cab with RamBox
    Yes, the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153 will fit a 2018 Ram 2500 Mega Cab with RamBox and Factory Air Ride Suspension. I called Reese to confirm this for you. Please note, you will need special brackets to use the outboards rails as well so if you don't already have these it will be best to just go with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # RP56009-53. The above kit does not require drilling into the frame and since they are...

  • What Fifth Wheel Hitches Fit Reese Rail Kit part # RP30153
    The Reese Fifth Wheel Rails part # RP30153 that you have are industry standard rails that will fit quite a few hitches on the market. They are compatible with Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley 5th-wheel hitches. A very popular option I really like is the Reese Titan hitch # RP30047 as it has a cushioned head and a jaw system that wraps around the king pin for a secure connection.

  • Why are the Reese Outboard 5th Wheel Rails Taller than Regular Rails for a 2017 Ford F-250
    The newer, taller rails such as those in 5th wheel installation kit # RP56017-53 for your 2017 Ford F-250 make it easier to pin in the hitch and work better for taller bed sides in newer trucks. The shorter rails such as those in kit # RP50074-58 are only available in the standard length. To compensate for the height difference you can lower the hitch (on most 5th wheel hitches) and/or raise the pin box on the trailer (if it is not already at the highest setting).

  • What Rails and Brackets Are Needed for a 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2005 Ford F-150
    The Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153 do not come with the frame brackets that are needed to attach them to your bed. Instead, I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit part # RP56006-53 which comes with the above rails and everything else that you need including the frame brackets and hardware. This kit also will not require any drilling into your truck's frame rails. The rearmost rail will sit about 26-3/16" in from the end of the bed....

  • Will a 5th Wheel Installation Kit from a 2013 Ford F-150 Fit a 2015 Ford F-150
    If your 2013 Ford F-150 has a Reese 10-bolt custom installation kit # RP50081-58 or the universal installation kit then you can re-use the rails but you will need new brackets for the 2015 Ford F-150, # RP50087. This kit does include all the hardware you will need as well. Since there are so many 5th wheel installation kit options I really need to know what install kit you have now so that I can make sure everything is compatible. Also are both trucks long beds, short beds, or very,...

  • Correct Install Kit For a Reese 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
    In order to install the Reese R20 5th Wheel Hitch 30867 on your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic you will need to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit part # RP50142-58. This is a custom fit kit that does not require any drilling into the truck frame. There would be no way to attach the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153 as they do not offer brackets for these that will fit your truck.

  • Outboard Base Rails for a 2015 Ford F-150
    It sounds like you need outboard base rails which means the bolts that attach the rails to the frame brackets are located outside the frame rail which makes for an easier install. If this is the case then you will want to use the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153.

This kit which is the only one available from Reese features outboard installation therefore installation will be much easier since the connections are on the outside of the frame.

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for 2016 Ford F-150 For Reese Sliding Hitch
    There are installation kits that do not include base rails that will work for your 2016 Ford F-150 and the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider # RP30051. The correct installation kit is going to depend on what base rails you already have; for example if you have the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt - Extended Length # RP30153 you will need the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56034 which fits your truck.

  • Reese 5th Wheel Outboard Brackets for 2020 Ram 1500 Short Bed
    Yes, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56018 will fit your 2020 Ram 1500. Just make sure you have the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153 to match up with the design of the brackets. Both kits are available as a package with part # RP56018-53 on our site.

    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56017 is only a fit for the extended length base rails # RP30153 which are 48 inches long. The Replacement Hardware Kit for Reese 5th Wheel Base Rails - 10 Bolt # RP58504 will be needed in addition to the bracket kit. If you instead have the standard base rails which are 43 inches long # RP58058 then you will need the same replacement hardware kit # RP58504 but will instead use bracket kit # RP50074.

  • Truck Bed 5th Wheel Mounting Brackets for 2014 Ram 2500
    The Reese # RP56009 is a frame bracket kit, which contains the frame brackets and the hardware to mount them to the frame. Since these brackets connect to the bed rails on the OUTBOARD side of the frame and not above it, standard length bed rails like those included with the # RP30035 universal install kit.

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Brackets for a 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    There are two different types of above the bed rails now available. To use your existing bed rails on the new truck you would need to use installation brackets # RP50066. The new longer rails, # RP30153, would require brackets # RP56001. So basically, you will want to go with bracket kit # RP50066. But you will also need hardware kit # RP58430 because you cannot reuse the old hardware to attach the rails to the new brackets. I have linked some instructions for you.

    Both the rail kit # RP56009-53 and part # RP30153 that you referenced are considered industry standard rails so yes, a Reese 16k slider hitch like what you have would work well with them. Yes, you do need to use the bushing after you enlarge the 1-1/4 inch hole in row 3. The bush provides support for the bolt that runs through so that it doesn't just damage the bed of your truck when torqued. The bed is what gets enlarged to 1-1/4 inches per the instructions.

    Fifth wheel brackets # RP56016 are specifically for the longer Reese rails, # RP30153, which are 48 inches long. If your rails are Reese and 48 inches long by 7-1/2 inches wide by 1-7/8 inches tall then # RP56016 is the correct bracket kit. If your rails are shorter than 48 inches then you will need bracket kit # RP50026 instead. Bracket kit # RP56016 comes with hardware to mount to the truck frame but not the hardware to attach the rails to the brackets. For that hardware you will need...

I contacted the manufacturer and the cylindrical spacers you are referring to are included in the # RP50054 kit. I'd recommend you double-check the base rails and frame brackets to make sure they are the same manufacturer. It is not recommended to mix brands between the base rails and frame brackets.
