Fast shipping, received it in one day, easy to assembly,adjustment to fit took a few tries, don't know if the 5th wheel puck wasn't level or the rail adapter wasnt welded flat, had to loosen pin screws to the max to get it to lock,took several tries to get it adjusted. Hope when I hook up the trailer it will help level things out. Seems to be a good for my needs, installing on a 2017 F250 527489

Received the product and was able to put together, install and adjust for proper fit in 45 minutes. Should of been about 30, if it wasn't for my own mishaps. Saved a bunch of money using old fifth wheel hitch instead of buying new hitch with ford pick system. Highly recommend product if your not interested in buying new hitch 388887

Very easy to install, I didn't curse or throw a tool putting it together! It really looks good with my old hitch in my new 2012 F-350 Lariat. I haven't towed my RV as of yet, but I will let y'all know how that goes when we go camping next weekend. Attached are some pics. 59638

The Reese fifth wheel adaptor appears to be well made. Assembly was simple, however the instructions, if followed exactly, create the need to loosen lock nuts that were tightened in an earlier step to adjust the adaptor to fit into the factory mount. Otherwise a great product and will work well. 449131

Reese's Under Rail Adapter RP30156 is very easy to assemble and to install. Instructions provided are well written reducing the assemble time to les than five minutes. Installation took longer due to the snug fit between the trucks underbed rails and the adapter's pins. Etrailer's delivery time is outstanding as well as their customer support team. They were very helpful in identifying the correct adapter match. 331034

The adapter came as expected. It went together real fast. Keep everything loose when you insert same in the vehicle. You will have to adjust the four points, that is the nature of the beast. After the adjustment, the adapter fit fine. My Reese 16,000 hitch fit just fine. 572742

It was hard to tell from the pictures but this item uses the handles to rotate the locking clevis and is as easily removable as the OEM equipment! The fit was fantastic and assembly only took about 15 minutes. Big savings being able to continue using my Pro series 15k. 35599

Installed in 2015 F250 with factory prep pkg. Fit was perfect with only minor adjustment to handles needed. Matched up to my DrawTite 5th wheel and Kwik Slide perfectly. Shipping was fast and tracking details were excellent. Etrailer stays on top of the order all the way. 180934

Great Price, Fast free Shipping, Phone ordered and etrailer was excellent with fitment applications. Ordered this for my 2017 F-350 which has the Ford 5th wheel prep package. It assembles easy with clear instructions and tips for mounting. Sturdy, strong and durable. Easy to remove when not towing. Great product from the great people at etrailer. Saved me the money to replace my entire 5th wheel hitch. I kept my Reese 16K hitch which mounts to this adapter. Thanks etrailer!!! 425819

Great product only complaint was stickers put on it were so uneven if wanting to advertise at least take time to apply straight. Had some shipping issues with bad weather and etrailer looked into it and was in touch with me immediately Will order from here again for sure 616193

Works great! It does everything as promised. Easily converted the Reese 5th wheel hitch that was originally on a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 to fit the mounting holes on a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty. 661899

This Reese product is stout, easy to assemble, and matched up correctly with my Reese 16K Pro Series slider 5th wheel hitch. The adjustments mentioned in the other reviews and in the installation manual took a little bit longer for me, but they were simple and well explained, I just had to keep adjusting all the jam nuts on the pucks until they all fit in the holes easily. Took maybe 45 minutes total. When I ordered it, the phone was answered by a woman, I was concerned because I had some questions about the adapter, whether my hitch would fit, etc. " CS " answered all my questions, looked up some info for me. Great job, always good service at etrailer. 365880

I checked two local distributors for this part and was told 1-1/2 to 2 weeks out and $60.00 more money. I ordered the item on Wednesday and received it on Friday, 2 days!! I will definitely use etrailer again in the future. 673657

The frame holes for the hitch tabs were too tight on one side and the opening in the frame needed to be filed in order to accommodate the hitch. Also, I would recommend leaving the Jam Nuts loose until the frame is placed in the bed as it allows for some bed variability and you will never get it right by tightening down everything and then trying to fit it. All in all it provides a very clean hitch adapter for my 2015 ford F250 with the factory Fifth Wheel Prep package. 167383

The adapter arrived on time... the installation was proceeding when I noticed that one of the "tee pins" was different... is was too short. I called etrailer and they informed me that they would ship a correct that day. Three days later the correct "tee pin" arrived. I finished the installation and hooked up my trailer. I will take the trailer out next week for a test drive. The price for the adapter was less than the local market and with free shipping how can you go wrong. Thanks etrailer... I will use your services again.... 600514

Thanks for the help with getting the adapter. This is how the job ended up with the under bed mount and adapter to the standard fifth wheel. 123262

The adapter has been working great. Gives me the flat floor I wanted and I didnt have to buy a different fifth wheel.

2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty

We ordered this for our 2016 Ford F-350. The part comes unassembled, but with instructions that are easy to follow. I did have to adjust after assembly to fit our truck properly. ( The instructions state you may have to adjust ). If you get this I will recommend that you get the wrench, it would have made the adjustments easier. My hitch dropped right in the slots and pinned right in place. NOTE: the pins for the hitch are not included, so order them if you do not have them. The adapter does not rest on the bed, only on the FORD under bed adapter. 233786

Everything is working like it is supposed to. I do not see excessive rusting, the paint is holding well.

My new F350 didn't have the under bed 5th wheel mount and I didn't want to use the rails that bolt across the bed. I bought the Reese under bed parts, Reese adapter, new legs for the hitch and a bed mat and installed it myself. I drilled through the dimples in the bed, bolted in the under bed parts and everything lined up nice. Since I went from a short bed to a long bed I didn't need the slider legs so I replaced them with fixed legs. When the hitch and adapter are out of the bed, nothing is in the way on the floor. I like it. 243480

Was easy as is to assemble, took around 20 minutes to put together and around 10 minutes to install in my F-250. The hitch dropped right in without any issue and works phenomenally. Highly recommend this product if you do not wish to purchase another hitch that will fit your existing puck system. 818672

Great accessory to allow me to utilize my nearly new fifth wheel hitch in a new Ford which came with a fifth wheel prep kit already installed from the factory. Only took me about 30 min. to assemble and install the Reese adapter rail kit # RP30156. Fit well and received my Reese 20K fifth wheel hitch with no problems. I highly recommend this product to anyone with similar needs.Thank You E-Trailer 798173
