Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP30153 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese 10 Bolt Extended Length Outboard Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches.Now, these base rails will install in your truck bed and they provide necessary attaching points for a 5th wheel trailer hitch. The base rails included in this kit feature a standard 10 bolt design. Basically, each of these rails will attach to the underbed brackets with two carriage bolts at both ends, and then a single bolt is used in the center of each rail to further secure it to your truck bed. The result is you get a set of base rails that'll remain firmly in place, thanks to 10 points of contact.These rails are 48" long above-bed rails, make for a nice fast, simple installation when these are used with the Reese custom outboard brackets that we do sell separately on our website. Now, the outboard brackets are required for installation of these rails. They will not work with your standard 5th wheel installation brackets, and I do want to show you one of the outboard brackets that we sell.

They'll vary for each vehicle, so you got to get the one correct for your vehicle, but this is an outdoor bracket. Basically, this will mount to the outside of the frame rail, and you notice the bracket extends outward so it allows you to install these extended length base rails. The extended length base rails allow you to mount . allow your mounting further out from the truck frame, and this will avoid underbed components for easier access.This part includes everything shown here on the table: the grade-8 hardware with the necessary spacers are included to install it, it gives you a nice set of detailed instructions. These rails are compatible with Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley Brands, and most standard 5th wheel hitches.

They're a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice black powder coat finish to them to help resist corrosion.A few specs on them: the dimensions is 48" long and the total height is 1-7/8" tall.But that should do it for the review on the Reese 10 Bolt Extended Length Outboard Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches.

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

  • 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. If...

  • Can Reese Outboard Base Rails be Used with Existing Brackets on a 2015 Ford F-150
  • If you have the brackets that come with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit # RP56034-53 then yes you can acquire the Outboard Base Rails as part # RP30153 on our site. This includes all of the hardware that you need for the installation. Please note that if you have a different brand of brackets or ones designed for use with standard base rails, like part # RP58058, then we will need to make sure that you use the same part number of base rails that were originally...

  • Bracket Kit Needed to Mount Reese Base Rails on 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 Duramax
  • If you already have the standard 43" long Reese Base Rails, part # RP58058, then I recommend going with the Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50064 which does not require drilling since it matches right up to existing mounting holes in the frame of your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. A more economic option would be the Reese Universal Installation Kit # RP30439 but it does require drilling and is a little more tricky to install. If you happen to have the Outboard 48" long Base Rails...

  • Custom Rails And Brackets Compatible With 2015 Ford F-250
  • The Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56016-53 confirmed to fit your 2015 Ford F-250 uses the # RP30153 Reese Extended Length Fifth Wheel Installation Rails and the # RP56016 Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. The # RP50026 brackets not a fit for the outboard 48 inch rails, but are a fit for the 43 Inch rails # RP58058.

  • Brackets and Hardware Only to Mount Reese 5th Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • 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...

  • Base Rails for Reese Custom Outboard Brackets RP56001 on 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • The correct base rails for your Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56001 are the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153. These are 48" base rails so they are close to the 50" length you mentioned and are going to work well for you.

  • 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.

  • Will Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit Work With 43" Rails On 2015 GMC 3500 Dually
  • I reached out to my contact at Cequent, and they confirmed with me that # RP58058 and # RP30035 base rails are 43” long. So our bracket kit # RP50066 will work with them. The exception is the # RP30153 base rails, which are 48” long and can only be used with 56 series brackets.

  • Availability of 48 Inch Long 5th Wheel Base Rails
  • We do have the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails - Extended Length # RP30153, which measure 48 inches long. These particular rails are designed for use with Reese custom-fit outboard brackets. If you can tell me the year, make, and model of your truck, I will be happy to recommend the correct mounting bracket kit for installation. I have also attached a short video demonstration on these rails that you can take a look at.

  • Recommended Custom 5th Wheel Rail Brackets and Hardware for 2015 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • For your 2015 Ford F-250 Short Bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026. This will give you the custom brackets so no drilling into your frame will be required. Then to install your rails, you will need hardware kit # RP58430. This combination will allow you to properly install your Reese Sliding Hitch in your truck.

  • 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).

  • Row 3 Hole Enlargement for Installing the Reese Rail Kit part # RP56009-53
  • 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. You would want to drill...

  • Hardware for 2015 Ram 2500 5th Wheel Rails
  • The parts you referenced for your 2015 Ram 2500, # RP50054 Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit and # RP58430 Replacement Hardware Kit, are both a fit for the 43 inch Reese rails # RP58058. 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.

  • 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.

  • Comparing Custom Bracket # RP56005 And # RP50082
  • The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56005 is compatible with the extended length base rails # RP30153 which are a little easier to install with a 48 inch length. The # RP50082 brackets are for use with the standard length base rails # RP58058 with a 43 inch length. Your older bed rails will most likely be the ones compatible with the # RP50082 brackets.

I have linked the installation instructions for you. There are two different ways to install the brackets and rails depending on which type of rails you have.

  • Does the Reese Universal 5th Wheel Installation Kit Fit a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Long Bed Dually
  • The Reese universal 5th wheel installation kit, brackets and hardware only, # RP30439, does fit the 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 long bed. But, if you have the longer Reese rails like the ones in kit # RP56001-53 (the rails are # RP30153) then you cannot reuse them with the universal brackets. When installing the universal kit the distance from the rear edge of the bed forward to the back edge of the rear rail will be 29-3/4 inches. This will put the hitch centerline directly above the...

This will work with your existing base rails. The other bracket kit you were reviewing, Reese # RP56001, is intended for extended-length base rails such as Reese # RP30153. Your existing base rails will not fit these brackets. The Reese Custom Bracket Kit # RP50066 includes hardware for installation on the frame...

The brackets, # RP56009, are designed for the new, longer rails # RP30153, so they would not work together but there is something that will work. You could use brackets # RP50054 for a 2015 Ram 2500 and the rails that come with the universal kit or just get the whole custom kit with the brackets and rails # RP50054-58.

You will want to measure to determine if you have the extended-length base rails (48" long) # RP30153, or the standard base rails (43" long), # RP58058. If you have the extended-length base rails, you can use the, # RP56007 which includes the outboard brackets and hardware.

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.

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....

  • Taller Fifth Wheel Rail Availability
  • The Reese Outboard rails part # RP30153 are a bit taller at 1-7/8 inches. These are called outboard rails because they install on the outboard side of the truck frame rails instead on the inboard side like most. This makes them easier to install.
