This product Worked exactly as design and Josh was extremely helpful in convincing me to spend that amount of money to convert my fifth wheel from afford to Iran the right way with no corners cut. He was extremely professional and right on the money with what I needed and I was confident I had the right thing coming when the shipment came in.

Very happy with it.

Received the 5th wheel hitch frame ahead of schedule. It was as advertised, installed in just a few minutes and is solid. My only complaint is that the cardboard box it came in was torn, the four contact points were sticking out of the box. It did not appear there was any damage, but packaging needs a lot of improvement so there is no damage to the frame.


Comments
Great product, have a 5th wheel hitch it sits on and I have had no problems. I’ve had to take it out of my truck a few times to haul cargo and it has been an easy process unlike my last truck with permanent rails bolted to the bed. Love the new system!

This is a beast to lift. It went into the RAM 3500 puck system easily. It was the easiest part of the hitch installation. I purchased some small pad locks to lock the release arms in place to make it a little bit theft resistance.

The base arrived in a timely manner as it was delivered over a holiday weekend. I couldn’t have asked for a faster time if I wanted it. The box was literally ripped apart and I’m assuming somewhere between etrailer and my house the workers just didn’t care. Installation of the base was as easy as it could be. Fit right into my 2018 Ram Pucks without any issues. I was actually surprised how easy it was. I think it was harder to put the end caps in and all they needed was a little tap. This is why I am giving it a 4 star and not a five star. I have a B&W bitch as you can see in the picture. Once it was in the slots there was absolutely no play at all. Fit like a glove. The problem came with the left hand side holes for the bolts and or pins to go in. The holes were drilled at a slight angle and were offset from each other. The bolt slid in and through the hitch holes but not out the other side. I ended up having to drill the holes out and snapped a bit in doing so, but once that was done the hitch was bolted down and I couldn’t be happier. I’m not sure if Reese had an issue the day mine was made but not a big deal. etrailer got me the base quick and I’m happy they carried this product because I love my Fifth wheel hitch and would have been upset if I had to Pay $xx.xx instead of what I payed for this. I highly recommend this for anyone who may be converting from a bolted rail system to the Puck system.

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.


Comments
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.

Works great. Only had to use it a couple times. Received the hitch for free, so I added this adapter to utilize the prep package. Should have spent the extra money on the Anderson hitch, as it is a pain for me, being by myself due to the weight. All that said, this piece does it's job, ease to get it in and easy to get it connected to the hitch. For the set up I have, I love it,

Product was a perfect fit for my Ram 2500 with the puck system. The bad- not all etrailers fault. The box was pretty beat up and the bag with the hardware was ripped open. I think this happened in UPS’s possession. It was missing one nut but I went to the hardware store and paid the .10 for a new one.

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

Good, installs easy. It’s heavy, but a hitch built with puck system legs would be heavier. This way I can get the hitch out and then the rail system out by myself.

I ordered the adapter on Monday, April 29 and got it on Thursday, May 2 (That was impressive as I live in western ND!). It came out-of-the-box as that had been torn in shipping. Not a scratch on the adapter; it was in excellent condition. I turned the handles to the proper position, dropped the adapter into the puck system of my 2018 Ram 2500, gave one of the the corners a slight tap with a rubber hammer, and it was in. The whole process took less than a few minutes. I set my PullRite hitch into the slots of the adapter and inserted the pins. Everything fit like an expensive glove. Hooked it up to my 36’ fifth wheel Montana camper the next day. I couldn’t be happier with the product or the professionalism of e-Trailer. A great product from a great company.

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.

This is the second one of these Reese 5th wheel adapters I have purchased from etrailer.com.

Excellent experience...AGAIN!

    The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154, which is compatible with the factory rail system on your 2017 Ram 2500, provides mounting points that are the same dimensions as standard base rails. Since the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521 is compatible with standard base rails, it is also compatible with the Reese Adapter.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer is Not Level When Hitched to Pullrite 4100 Superglide Hitch in 2015 Ram 3500
    If your 5th wheel trailer is 3-inches out of level when hitched to your Pullrite 4100 Superglide hitch there will be potential handling and wear issues. It is possible that you will feel a bit more jarring and chucking at starts/stops than if the trailer were properly leveled; this occurs because the angle of the king pin in the hitch's jaws will be a bit off the ideal alignment for full contact. Since the trailer will be tipped backwards slightly this will put more of its total weight...

  • Will Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter Work With B&W Patriot Slider On 2016 Ram 2500 With Puck System
    The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter, part # RP30154 will work great with the factory puck system on your 2016 Ram.

  • Reese RP130154 Adapter Rail Pin and Clip Recommendation
    The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # RP30154 will allow you to use your Reese Pro Series hitch.

The manufacturer recommends using the bolts instead of pin and clip if towing over 20,000 lbs.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Using Underbed Mounting Rails for 2014 Ram 2500
    B and W has a solution that would allow you to install a fifth wheel hitch with an underbed mounting system. Their Companion # BWRVK3500-5W fifth wheel hitch would install into their Turnover Ball Gooseneck, part # BWGNRK1384-5W. When the fifth wheel hitch is removed, you would have full, unobstructed use of your truck bed. You would also have the advantage of being able to tow a gooseneck trailer if the need should arise. This will only be a solution if your truck has coil springs in...

  • Will a Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM Prep Package
    The slots in the Reese adapter for Rams with the OEM prep package, # RP30154, are at 20-1/2 and 29 inches apart on center from side to side. And they are 22 inches apart on center front to back. As long as your Curt hitch was designed to fit in above the bed rails and will fit the above slot spacing then it will fit the adapter.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for Factory Prep Package Pucks on 2018 Ram 2500
    I have two 5th wheel base rail adapters for your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed with factory pucks. You can use either the Reese Rail Adapter # RP30154 or the Demco Rail Adapter # DM6099. Either of these adapters will work well with your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch. If your current hitch isn't a sliding hitch, because you are getting a short bed truck you may want to also consider the sliding base # BWRVB3270.

    The distance between the pucks on the Reese Adapter for Ram # RP30154 is 39-1/8 by 30-1/2 inches. I had to contact Curt for their Adapter Rails for Curt Fifth Wheel Sliding Hitches # C16023 that fits the GM, and according to them the pucks measure approximately 27 by 20 inches.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    The best option for a short bed truck like yours is to go with a Sidewinder as it will give you 22 more inches of pivot point clearance (much more than a slider hitch), and won't require you to get out and activate the slider mechanism of the fifth wheel hitch when you get to parking lot and then again when you are leaving the parking lot. The B and W Companion # BWRVK3600 will fit your Ram hitch prep package and would be an excellent option. Since you said you have a Lippert 1621HD...

  • 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.

  • 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,...
