Video Transcript for Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Reese 5th Wheel Adapter for the Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package. With a 25,000 pound capacity its part number is RP30154. Now here's what our adapter looks like installed. As you can see, this is going to be the perfect solution for using our standard 5th wheel with our Ram prep package. This is designed to fit into all four of our puck locations. We've got the rotating arms that are going to get it locked in position.

It's nice and sturdy. There's not a lot of movement with it. It is fully adjustable for your puck location mounting locations, and also for the height, so you can get this to where it's not going to move around, where it won't make noise; it's pretty nice. Now, it's going to work with the of course the Reese, the BMW, the Curt, the Draw-Tite, the Valet any standard 5th wheel out there really is going to be able to work. This has a 25,000 pound capacity so we can go up to there with it. Now, as far as the mounting holes on center for our inners here it's going to be about 20 1/2, and then for our outers we're out closer to that 29 area.

The wider or the narrower 5th wheel should work in here for you. Once you get over a 20,000 pound capacity with your 5th wheel you're going to replace the pins that come with your 5th wheel to hold it in place here on the rails with these bolts. It's a nylon lock nut, and we just tighten it down so that the head of our bolt and the base of our nut there just make contact with the rail. That's going to give us that additional support we'll need for those heavier loads. Now, this adapter kit also works great with sliders. There are several good options out there from Reese that'll drop right in here and you'll have the effect.

Of course, this being a short bed truck that's going to be something we'll need. Other standard sliders are going to work with this as well. Looking over the reviews that we find on our adapter, it seems to be a very highly rated product. Not a lot of complaints about it or anything like that. Of course, this with your 5th wheel attached, it's going to be heavy getting it in and out of the truck.

A second set of hands never hurts. There was one review that said maybe there's a little movement in it forward and back. Now, they supplied a wrench with that that'll go in here on this large nut, and you can actually adjust the anchor points further away from each other just slightly so that when it does fit down in here, you're not going to have that movement. It seems like most of them come from the factory set just right. You know, they've got a jig where they're going to try to set those just as perfectly as they can, but if you need adjustment, in the instructions it's going to tell you exactly how to do that. Now, when putting your 5th wheel on top of this you are going to be adding 2 inches to that height, so you want to adjust your 5th wheel head down those 2 inches to accommodate for that difference. It's constructed of a heavy-duty steel of course, giving us plenty of strength right up to that 25,000 pounds. It's going to have a black powder coat finish so it'll stay corrosion resistant for a long time to come. Also, since it's working with that OEM puck system, there's no drilling or welding required. This is going to drop right in for us. Now, to begin our installation we're going to be removing the four center sections from our pucks. They go all the way around, and we'll turn these counterclockwise. You'll feel a little stop there. Sometimes we'll come up, if not, you may need to get a little screwdriver in there, kind of pop them out. That's going to expose our anchor points here that our quick connects are goin to fit right down into when we latch them over. Now we'll be able to slide our adapter down in the puck locations and test fit it to make sure it's nice and secure. To position this appropriately we need the larger locking lugs to be in the rear, and the smaller ones we'll want towards the front of the vehicle. Now, we'll move our arms so they're in the unlocked position, which would mean that our arms are not lined up here, but towards the middle of the vehicle. Now, with those positioned appropriately we're going to slide our lugs right down and in, and then we'll pull our arms to the center here. When we do that, we'd like to feel a little bit of resistance. You see these are pretty free moving so there's probably going to be some movement here. With that kind of movement on each side that's just going to be noisy heading down the road, so we can make our adjustments internally here. We'll show you how to do that now. Now, we need to adjust the relationship of our locking lug here to our handle. You'll see, actually this goes right through this bushing and threads into here. It's held in place with this cotter pin. We just need to bend that cotter pin back, get it pulled out of there. Once we have that out it's just going to be a matter of rotating our lug, and that just draws those two closer together. Once our adjustment's made then we just need to slide our cotter pin back in. We'll do that at our remaining locations. Just want to make sure that cotter pin's bent enough so it doesn't interfere with anything. Do that for our other four locations, test it again, and proceed as much as we need to to get a nice, secure fit. Now, with everything properly adjusted you'll want a little bit of resistance on your levers as you bring them around, but it shouldn't be that difficult. If it's difficult to latch you want to loosen them up some. You want to get it to a point where it's like this, where you're not going to have any up and down movement, you're not going to have any play both in the front and in the rear there. Once that adjustments are made we can cap this off. Now, our pins can be a bit tough to get in there because there's not much room underneath there for our clip. What we'll do is drop that down through. I like to push the bale over to it, and then just lift up on the actual pin itself. Get that down through, get my bale down there, and then just kind of lift up on the pin. That'll get us aligned there where that'll be nice and secure. Now, to release it we'll kind of do the same thing. We're going to lift up on the pin and then slide out on that bale. Now, we can get our 5th wheel put down in position on our adapter. In our case, we haven't fully assembled our slider yet so we'll just be using the arm. You'll see these are going to come up, you're going to slide down into position, and then you're going to use whatever securement method came with your 5th wheel. Now, just like we talked about before, if you're going to be doing over 20,000 pounds, instead of using these pins you will want to use the bolts provided with the adapter. Now, once we've got all four pins installed, if your 5th wheel's preassembled of course you're ready to hook up to your trailer and head down the road. In our case, we've got a little more work to do. That's going to complete our look at the Reese 5th Wheel Adapter for the Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package, part number RP30154.

Searched for a solution for mounting a PullRite Super-slide and this frame adapter did the trick. Installs quickly and is easily removed allowing full box utilization. It is identical to the factory optional adapter only hundreds less costly. Did require minor adjustment but instructions were clear and easy to do. Used with Industry standard Rail mounted hitches. 107315

So you were able to put a PullRite Super slide hitch on this adapter? I have a PullRite hitch it is not a super slide and it doesnt fit on this adapter.

-- comment by: Lindsey - 01/28/2014

Certain PullRite hitches use a narrower spread than most. This rail adapter does not provide the most narrow slot set. If your hitch tabs are narrower than the slots on the adapter, I would bet that your PullRite is one of those models.

Fantastic. I have installed and removed the adapter frame several times. Im 70 years old and it was no bother for my wife and I to remove both the PullRite hitch and the adapter frame. I have ordered other products from E-trailer and all have done exactly what they described, They are an excellent resource and provide value as well as advise.

WOW! very impressed! Some minor adjustments I did on the edge of the bed to remove the up and down movement. Put the hitch pins in and dropped in. I locked in place and it fit perfect. Next we dropped the Reese 16K fifth wheel with slide rails and bolted down. Thanks Kelsey! All the local places tried to tell me I had to have rails put in, but they were wrong, Thanks etrailer.com. I know where to go to get hitched!!! 396831

The Reese 5th wheel adapter fit very well. The only problem was getting the cotter pins out to make the snugness adjustment. The instructions could have been better. It took a while to realize that there were 2 different adjustments, not one. The one inch wrench is for the positioning (front-back, side to side) of the pins into the bed. No adjustment was necessary with this and I did not need the 1 inch wrench. However, the "T" was loose as the pins were set a little deep into the bed. Once (an hour later) I got the cotter pins out I screwed the T ends about 4 - half turns into the handle so that there was no vertical play. Then reinsert the cotter pins, set the Reese adapter back into the holes, give the handles a 1/2 turn and lock them into place with that snap lock. Reese needs to make it easier to get those pins out. The Pullrite 4409 baserail adapter fit perfectly onto the Reese RAM adapter, and then my old hitch fit perfectly onto the Pullrite adapter. (The only annoying thing is that I now have a hitch that is 7 inches higher than it used to be. But that is not Reese's fault. Darn those truck manufacturers. The trailer tongue can be moved up 2 inches to mitigate a little.) 157248

The concept is great, the execution is lacking... very poor quality welds, even worse quality in finish (see all the bare metal exposed in the photos). Make sure to wear gloves when handling as the manufacturer did not deburr at all. Shipping was less than desirable (to no fault of Reese or etrailer). My UPS guy dropped this hauling it to our door, take a look at the images of the packaging. It was easy to install, instructions are clear. This aligned perfectly with my '17 Ram 3500 and dropped right in. I cannot comment on the functionality as I am waiting to assemble the head for my Reese hitch. 501939

I bought the Reese Adapter for my 2017 Ram 3500 with factory gooseneck/ fifth wheel prep. It arrived to my door in less than a week after ordering. Packaging was intact and wasn't beat to death. Previous reviews mentioned having to adjust some of the feet that drop into holes. I didn't have this problem at all. Once I unpacked everything, I dropped it in the factory holes in the bed, stood on the adapter while locking it in place. It was that simple! There wasn't any slop or unnecessary movement. My Patriot 5th wheel fit right into the Reese adapter. The only problem I had was the existing hitch pins I had weren't quite long enough. I ended up using the nuts and bolts that came with the Reese Adapter. This is a great product if you have the factory prep package on your truck. I can have this in and out of my truck in 15 minutes. Only downside is that the 5th wheel hitch has to come off the Adapter in order to remove the Adapter from the truck. However, it would require that you have more than 1 person to be able to lift it out and maneuver it out of the truck if everything was still together. The way it is now, I can do everything by myself. Great Product 523857

Item arrived very quickly as always from etrailer. Install was a little tedious, and not as easy as you would hope. After initially setting it down in the pucks, and locking the arms I had a lot of vertical play. So had to remove the cotter pins (not fun, or exactly easy to accomplish). Finally discovered that putting one tip of my needle nose pliers through the end of the pin, I had good leverage to pull/pry the pin. I did break one during removal, and had to hit the local farm supply store for a new one. fyi, Home Depot's were not thick enough. Another tip, after removing the pins you have to lift the adapter back out, and twist the foot part that locks into the pucks. It took several twists/attempts to get all four snug. I used some of the cardboard packing material to slide under the adapter to hold it up while making adjustments. Would have gone 5 stars, but the instructions are a little vague when it comes to explaining how to make adjustments. P.S. thank you to the reviewer who mentioned putting the bail pins in before setting it into the pucks, brilliant !! 399856

Worked beautifully first time this past weekend with my Pro series 16k. Simple to install. The odd thing was that I had to turn the center locking pins upside down and have them in place just before dropping into the trucks peg holes. Otherwise the bed floor is to close on I was unable to close the pin properly. Once I figured this out, it was smooth sailing. Came just as easy. 198319

Arrived as scheduled, UPS driver delivered Ram Oem Adapter For Above-bed 5th Wheel Hitches (RP30154) right to my 2016, 2500 4x4, RAM truck where I unpackaged & installed in less than an hour. Took me a few hours longer to place, attach and adjust the Reese 16K hitch to the proper height. The 4x4 height required the hitch to be lowered. Fantastic pre sales support aided in the proper selection & order at a reduced cost. 237768

I have a pull-rite 20k hitch and purchased a 2017 Ram 3500 and need a solution. I Opted for the Reese Apater. It was very easy to drop into the pucks and had very little movement. but there may be a bit of of rattle with the hitch and trailer so I went ahead and followed the instructions for tightening the tension on the legs and setting to the specs in the video as it was a bit too easy to close. The process was very easy. I saved hundreds by reusing my old hitch and not buying a complete setup. I don't mind the picture frame adapter it helps keep small things in place in the bed. etrailer customer service has been great ( bag of hardware fell out of a huge hole put in the box by shipper) Shipping was fast I will be getting more items from them as I am restoring a 2003 Luxury 5th wheel. 480771

The product is a quality piece and exactly what 2018 Dodge Ram owners needs to mount a 5th wheel with. However the origin shipper never heat sealed the plastic bag that contained the hardware and I am missing one of the 1/2 Internal hex socket cap-head bolts need to secure the 5th wheel. I guess I have to go buy one aftermarket because I haven't heard back from Danny M. at etrailer.com since he replied how "sorry to hear that you received your order and it appears to be missing components from your purchase" and "Was there any damage to the box?" You would think that CUSTOMER SERVICE's 1st reply , aftere a $450.00 purchase, would be that they would get the bolt right out to me and then ask questions that coincidentally Danny M. at etrailer.com still has not respond too.

Absolutely Fantastic customer support, bar none. We originally received our adapter frame very fast, of course. Due to some mixup (not an eTrailer problem) in the part number, it did not fit. After a Sunday phone call to etrailer, Adam figured out the problem, got the correct part number send to their shipping department, and sent the return product instruction. The estimated delivery date was the following Friday, but FeDEx backed up to our door on Thursday. Get yourself some of that! Please don't buy from anyone else. We've truly been spoiled by the eTrailer Team. 391861

Had to make minor adjustments. All the cotter pins broke when removed, but was going to replace with new stainless pins anyway. Hooked up the 5th wheel and went for a test run of about 20 miles over various roads, to see if I needed to adjust the rail adapter pins. No adjustment needed so far. Pleased with the adapter so I can use my 20K hitch. Did notice the hitch has a very small amount of forward/reverse movement in the rail adapter. Am going to search for rubber bushings. I can hear it is the only reason I would like to limit the movement to zero. Very happy overall. Have done business w/etrailer before, and have no complaints. 214828

This adapter for my RAM with the Towing Prep fit perfectly! I was originally concerned I'd have to make adjustments, but once I turned the locking handles, it was snug to the floor with no movement! HINT: Insert the locking Bail Pins into the holes in the rail before your final install! The install video shows the tech just dropping the Bail Pins into the hole. Not that smooth in real life. There is little to no space between the bottom of the rails and the truck bed. I couldn't snap the Bail pins unless I placed them in the hole first. Then just work the locking handles over the end of the bail pin ( the handles have some flexibility). Very happy with this adapter. 193998

I bought this for my new 2016 Ram 2500 that came with the 5th wheel prep package. In my opinion, it's the only way to go! It drops right into place, was very easy to adjust, and I had no trouble at all getting a nice, tight fit into the anchors in the truck frame. I use mine with a Curt slider mount with a Curt plate. Even though I have an 8 foot box, I like the extra room hooking/unhooking in some of the places I go to, and sliding rearward gives me so much more room to get to my landing gear. No problems at all with chucking/movement like I had in a lot of the solid mount setups I've had over the years. This drop in mount is GREAT! 350623

Appears to be well made. Mine didnt come with instructions. I sheared off a cotter pin trying to lock one of the handles. Thats when I realized one of the corners needed adjusting.Personally, Im disappointed in the way it locks down. Once you bolt the hitch onto the adapter, you have to unbolt it EVERY TIME you need to remove it, because the hitch prevents you from turning the 4 handles! This is a pain when I want to use the gooseneck hitch, and I have to purchase new lock nuts each time.The Etrailer price was the best I found, and it only took a couple of days to arrive, once it was off of a 3 week backorder.

We purchased many products from etrailer and every item is excellent and received quickly. This 5th wheel hitch adapter is simple to install and remove, with some adjustment needed but videos made it easy. The key is only straighten and bend the cotter keys once after the final adjustment. A second person made it easier since it weighs in at 90 lbs. etrailer customer service and employees are always helpful. 5 Stars! 559185

The reese adapter came assembled and looked good. I had a slight bug getting it in my OEM slots as the front slots were 3/8" wider then the rear. Rears dropped right in. I called the original owner of the truck and he had the same issue... A little "persuasion" and it went right in. No fault on Reese, but RAM and their assembly guys in the old country... 183517

The product arrived a little banged up from the rough shipping & handling. All the parts were accounted for fortunately. With the help of the instructional video and instructions I was able to get it installed in a short period of time. Just a couple of adjustments and it was in! My Husky silver system fell right into place. Over all I was very pleased. 391585

We have recently purchased a 2018 RAM 2500 pickup that is factory prepped for the 5th wheel or gooseneck towing. We have a GOOD 5th wheel hitch and slide that we have used with our 5th wheel trailer. We purchased the REESE 5TH WHEEL RAIL ADAPTER FOR THE RAM OEM 5TH WHEEL TOWING PREP PACKAGE. What a GREAT investment... It only takes a few minutes to install and our original Slide and hitch fits on it perfectly. Being able to easily and quickly remove the Cross rails is GREAT. We did replace Two of the latching pins with Padlocks. 505163

Received when promised.Box was badly damaged,but part was ok. Was disappointed to see it was made in China! The good news,was that it accually fit in the factory fifth wheel frame pockets with no binding.I had to adjust the grip fingers to remove the up and down play,and the clip pins are pretty close to bed floor,but everything else worked good. Titan hitch has slight bind when installing in knoches but it goes in.Hav'nt towed with yet,but it looks like should be ok.Only concern it sits very high in bed with reese slider setup. 321028

Product appears to do what it was intended to do. Like others have written, there are TWO adjustments you may or may not have to make. For me, it was kind of a pain to get the adapter pins adjusted where there was NO up & down play. Had to keep lifting adapter out, pull cotter pins, re-adjust pins a turn, then put back in. After 4-5 times of this on your hands & knees, you get tired quick. (weights 90 lbs) Never did get 100% of Vertical movement out. You will finally get to a point where you will say "that's close enough" 329508

I think this a well designed and well made product. I just removed the hole covers in the box of my truck set the adapter in place ( and after a little adjustment on the twist locks ) locked it in place, and set my Reese 5thwheel in place. great product, would recommend to everyone. 496407

This frame is very stout and will do the job no question. The only thing is that it is heavy and not that easy to take in and out of the bed. I also found it will not work with my rubber bed mat. It would be nice if Reese made an all in one setup like on the Fords. The problem with the all in one setups available are that they are to tall, the B&W is over 17.5'' tall, I need it around 14'' to 15''. This frame and the Reese Pro together measures off my bed to the top plate 16''. 119789

Purchased Reese 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for a Ram 3500 with 5th wheel prep. Easy to order, great service, delivered ahead of schedule. Installation instructions a little confusing, but went slow and had frame adjusted and locked in about 45 minutes. Rock solid connection, tows great. Really like the ability to easily remove at the end of camping season and have a clean, flush bed. I won't miss the permanent bed rails. Will buy from etrailer.com again. Thanks. 200356

I definitely had my doubts when I plugged it in to the factory mounts, installed my 5th wheel hitch and hooked it up to a 16,000 plus lb 5th wheel. Made many trips since and I'm convinced the Reese product you sold me handles the weight pull just fine. 374368

I was a little worried when I got the package. The cardboard box had holes in the corners from shipping. The UPS driver knows me from years of shipments so he handed me a handful of bolts that he found on the floor of his truck. Luckily it was all of them. The unit fit the puck system without adjustment, and the fifth wheel hitch dropped right on. The unit has been a solid performer with no worries. It looks like new after a year of use. 299679

This rail kit fit perfectly into the puck system of my Dodge Ram 3500. The etrailer install video was quite helpful! I needed to make a few small adjustments, so the rail kit fit perfectly and video demonstrated exactly how to get the job done! The folks at etrailer.com were extremely helpful when ordering the rail kit and helping to ensure it arrived when I needed it - thanks!! I will definitely order from them again! 546859

The hitch adapter for well after adjusting it so there would be no movement. My 26 kw husky hitch fit perfect had to use bolts provided the original pins were to short. Have not pulled my fifth wheel yet hence the 4 stars. 559456

Box was damaged upon arrival, but the product was in perfect condition. Easy to install and setup, it has to be put in a certain position one set of hole are larger than the other so we had to turn it around for it to fit. Hitch attached easily and we will testing out the setup this weekend. Makes installation of a hitch easy without additional installation fees, easy enough for anyone to install and setup. 338282

The order came very quickly and was in good shape. Except, the cotter pins were missing. I had to use my own but they probably should be a hardened grade. Had to adjust the pin heights to get a tight fit. After all that it dropped in a fit good. FYI- the missing cotters are probably fault of Reese, not etrailer but maybe they should do an inspection before ship. Still will buy my truck/trailer stuff from them. 236679

This Reese unit arrived as promised. The package was substantial before being shipped. Enroute, it appears the shipper wasnt as careful. Found parts missing when the box was opened. Called etrailer immediately and they said the parts would be shipped out next day. Can't complain with customer service like that. etrailer has become my "go-to" source for all things related to my camper and tow vehicle. 414966

Ram 2500 OEM hitch adapter installed within minutes. Nothing to put together. A must have when purchasing a newer Ram with OEM 5th wheel hitch installed. Shipping was free and fast. I will buy again from E-Trailer. 277911

We had difficulty turning in our 5the wheel trailer to get fixed due to not having the correct part to have the hitch installed. We ordered the hitch rail kit from Etrailer and we received it just on time even if we had the billing information incorrect the first time our credit card was used. Their staff was very helpful in helping you find the product that you need. Overall, highly recommend Etrailer.com! 356957

just what i was looking for. same as MOPAR piece but less expensive. packaging was inadaqute for shipping method. unfortunally because of weather and CHRYSLER Corp I can not try it in my vehicle. will post at a latter date as to actual install. service from etrailer was exceptional. ordered same part from MOPAR in Jan,2014 / still no delivery date. etrailer had it to me in less than a WEEK. thank you!!!! 117720

I ordered the adapter on Sunday, 3 April. Here it is Wednesday, 6 April and the adapter is here already. No room for any form of complaint there. Now, all I need is a truck to put it in. That is why I need a new adapter. I ordered the truck on Friday, and it will be 6 to 8 weeks before I get a chance to install it. With the available adjustments, that should not be a problem. Great service. 243122

Installed in my dodge 2500 2017. Fitment was perfect but had to adjust vertical and fore/aft play. Fairly easy just little time consuming. The only "but" I have is the videos show two different locking methods. One with two large pins and another with 4 smaller pins. No big deal all adjustments are the same but my locks with 4 small pins and my hardware bag had the two large pin. Good buy and fit. 430974

Reese 5th wheel rail for Dodge OEM puck system is great. I love the fact that you can tow your camper and when your done, take the 5th wheel and the rails out with minimal effort. That's great so you have your regular truck bed to haul stuff without rails in the way. Then put it back in and you're ready to camp again. Ordered it and got it when expected . Definitely recommend etrailer.com! 510183

I received the above bed rail adaption for my 5th wheel hitch installation for my 2016 Dodge Ram. Everything worked as advertised. The product RP30154 set into the factory installed pucks with very little adjustment. And saved alot of time from installing the rails that were originally supplied with the 5th wheel hitch assembly that was taken from my Chevy. Thanks for a great product. 557985

The frame worked as it is designed. The only problem, and it is not the fault of the frame, is that I have a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 and the box is already high. With the added two or so inches of the frame it made my trailer tow more nose high. I know that if I had bought a hitch that fit the puck system I wouldn't have had this problem, but I already had a Pullright superglider hitch. 336645

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ram 2500 with Rambox
  • Yes, it is possible to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a 2017 Ram 2500 with RamBoxes. However, because of the of the RamBox feature not all 5th wheel products are compatible. In my opinion, I personally would not get the RamBox feature.The boxes will limit your hitch options and what components that are available will increase the over all expense of a 5th wheel hitch for a Ram with RamBoxes installed. I recommend getting the factory prep package without the RamBox. For this application,...

  • Best Way to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Tow Prep Package
  • In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed. You have several hitch options that will work, but my favorite is the B&W Companion 25K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. This hitch will drop right into the pucks in the truck bed and once it is removed, you will have full access to your bed. Curt also makes fifth wheel hitches for the...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Comparison Reese 16k 30047 Vs. Curt Q16
  • Based on our experiences here I would recommend the Reese 16k hitch part # RP30047 over the Curt hitch part # C16120 that you referenced. The Reese hitch seems to be a bit more reliable and the Curt Q series comes back more often with damage around the jaws of the hitch. Both hitches will work great, but since the Reese is a bit lighter and tends to have fewer issues I would recommend that route for you. This hitch would work well with the Mopar Adapter part # RP30154 that you referenced.

  • Adapter to Install Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2018 Ram 3500 With Factory Prep Package
  • In order to use your Curt hitch in a 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory fifth wheel prep you were correct that you'd need an adapter. The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # RP30154 fits right into the puck system on your '18 Ram and locks in place; simply mount your Curt fifth wheel onto the adapter and you will be ready to tow. I've added a pair of video reviews of this adapter for you to take a look at.

  • Compatibility of Demco Autoslide with 2018 Ram 2500 6.5 Foot Bed
  • The Demco 13K with a 22-1/2 inch slide # DM8550040 and # DM8550041, will not work for your application. It would cause issues with the tail gate. The confirmed fit for your truck is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - 18,000 lbs # DM8550034 or the 21K # DM8550035. Either will work well with the Rail adapter for Ram 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6099 or the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. The weight of the hitch is 273 lbs for the 18K and...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500 Short Bed Hitch Prep
  • I attached a link to the right that shows all of the confirmed 5th wheel hitch fits for your 2015 Ram 2500 short bed with a hitch prep package. Since you have a short bed you will need a slider hitch to let you make tight turns. For that I would recommend the # RP30075. For a rail kit to fit your underbed rail kit you will need the # RP30154.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 RAM 3500 Short Bed w/ Puck System Towing 2015 Cedar Creek
  • Although many trailer manufacturers are now designing their trailers with the tapered fronts to be more aerodynamic and also to help increase turning clearance, our hitch manufacturers are still going to recommend using a hitch with a slider opposed to a stationary hitch. Using a slider helps to compensate for the reduced turning clearance on a short bed pickup. Since your 2016 Ram 3500 will be equipped with the puck system, I recommend going with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for a 2014 Ram 2500 without Factory Prep Package

The rails that are included with this kit will accept any Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley 5th wheel trailer hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails.

The B&W Patriot is compatible with industry-standard, above-bed rails, which is exactly what mounting the Reese Rail Adapter to your factory puck system will provide. Because the Reese Rail Adapter uses the existing puck mounting system, no drilling will be required during installation. I have...

  • Recommendation for a Fifth Wheel Slider for 2016 Ram 2500 with OEM Prep Package
  • Good news, I can help you find what you need for your 2016 Ram 2500. The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154 will allow you to mount a sliding hitch. It is important to note that this setup may still not give you the turning clearance you are looking for and you could instead go with a fixed hitch like # PS30121 and a Sidewinder, like the one that fits a Lippert 1621 box # RP61421 and has a weight rating of 19K, to accommodate that need. Sidewinders are designed to replace specific...

The Demco Recon will mount to the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500 using standard bedrails, like the Demco Universal Bed Rails, # DM6071. If your Ram has the OEM 5th Wheel Towing Pre Package, you can us the Reese 5th Wheel Adapter, # RP30154, to mount the Demco Recon to your vehicle. The Reese adapter will sit...

  • Does the Reese Ram OEM 5th Wheel Adapter # RP30154 Include the Feet
  • The Reese Ram OEM Fifth Wheel Adapter, # RP30154, includes the feet that insert into the pucks (factory slots) in the bed of your 2013 Ram 3500. You will not need to purchase any additional items with this adapter if your truck has the Dodge Ram OEM Fifth Wheel Prep Package. This adapter allows you to use a standard fifth wheel hitch that uses the industry standard above-bed base rails with your Dodge OEM Fifth Wheel package.

If this is the case, then you will want the Reese Ram OEM Rail Adapter, # RP30154, to use your Husky 5th wheel hitch in this truck. This adapter mounts in the pucks in your truck bed and provides mounting slots that match those of industry standard above-bed base rails. Keep in mind, this adapter will add about 2 inches of height to your 5th wheel hitch. Demco offers a slightly shorter adapter, part #...

  • All 5th Wheel Hitch Options for Factory RAM Towing Prep Package
  • There are several 5th wheel hitches that will fit the factory RAM towing prep package hole pattern. I'll list out the options we offer below along with a few recommendations. The article you found was likely an old article. RAM sort of botched the release of their OEM 5th wheel package back in 2012/2013 and they started selling trucks with the factory mounting kit before a hitch was actually designed and released. The trucks were sold for about 6 months before a hitch was actually released....

  • Dimensions of Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapters for Factory Rails on GM and Ram Trucks

  • Ram OEM 5th Wheel Package Adapter Recommendation for Standard 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The adapter that your customer has for his 2011 Ford truck fifth wheel package will not work with the OEM fifth wheel package on the 2013 and 2014 Ram trucks. The OEM fifth wheel package on the Ram trucks have a different foot print, meaning the pucks in the truck bed are spaced further apart than the pucks on Ford trucks. If your customer chooses to go with a 2013 or 2014 Ram truck with the OEM fifth wheel package, then he will want the Reese Elite Series Rail Adapter, # RP30154. This...

For your truck, I recommend the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6099 or the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # RP30154 for that adapter.

  • Let's start with the Valley hitch. If your Power Pull Glider uses industry standard rails, like part # RP58058, then you could use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter, # RP30154, to mount your Valley fifth wheel in your 2016 Ram 3500. As for a Curt hitch, I would recommend the following sliding fifth wheel hitches, # C16521 for 16K, # C16536 for 20K, and # C16546 for 24K. These sliding hitches will require the use of Adapter Rail, # C16022. The factory prep packages do not include a hitch...
