Video Transcript for Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30156. This is the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for standard fifth wheel trailer hitches. This part is designed to work with an already installed Reese Signature Series Fifth Wheel Underbody kit. You can see we have four pucks installed here. inaudible 00:00:22 vehicle, we have them sit inside of the bed liner as well. Typically you would have to make a large cut out for it.

However in this truck and this part, we we're able to just get away with just four small holes and it sits on top of the bed liner, with plenty of clearance. Once it's assembled, it's very easy to install. Just make sure these handles are pointing towards the center, and when they're locked you can see how this turns facing to the puck that's installed in the truck. Just lay it into place, and then make sure these handles are open all the way, to make sure that it's set into place. Then push the handles in. There should be some resistance as you push it in.

Once it's in place, use the snap rings to help lock it. You could also use your favorite padlock if you want to. When you assemble this, it's a good idea to get access to the jam nut right here to help make sure everything is tightened down properly. The part number for the wrench we're using is 58276. With our Underbed Rail Adapter installed, let's go ahead and put the fifth wheel hitch into place.

After we put our fifth wheel hitch into place, we'll go ahead and install the pins and clips. So our hitch will mount up to our adapter plate just like it would if it had rails already installed in the bed going across. That will finish it for review of part number RP30156 from Reese. .

As usual, support from etrailer is OUTSTANDING. Order, shipping, and most important support follow-up was perfect. etrailer will have my business far into the future. My new 5th wheel hitch fit my Ford F350 PERFECTLY. My first hitch/tow confirmed my expectations, NO PROBLEMS. Thank You ron 353514

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

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

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

etrailer has a great site, easy to find products, shipping is fast. The 5th wheel rail adapter is a quality product. I purchased a new Ford F-350 with the Ford built in 5th wheel and gooseneck options. I didn’t want to spend another $1,800 to purchase the Ford products for it. etrailer solved the problem. Now I can use my 5th wheel and gooseneck attachments. Thanks Guys. 545978

Great product to adapt my current reese hitch to a new truck with the built in fifth wheel under-mount system. Arrived in great shape. Easy to assemble and adjust. Great price and free shipping!! Madison P. was excellent at satisfactorily resolving my concerns with pricing prior to placing the order. 542853

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

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

by:

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

Cathy T. helped me with this order to get it installed on my Ford truck. The product comes with very simple instructions and mounts in my truck perfectly. I'd make sure to have a wrench that will fit the 1 1/2 nut that fastens the mounts to the frame of the adapter. Nice product and great customer service as usual. Clean installation, easy to remove/install once assembled. 511977

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

UPS dropped it off around 6 pm so I assembled it in about 20 minutes and put it in my truck, I did have to loosen up two of the 1 1/2 nuts which I kinda figured and it dropped right in. I then dropped my 16k slider hitch in with no problem and lowered the hitch as low as it would go and hopefully it won't be too high. My old truck was a 2010 250 and my new truck is a 2015 350, I'm gonna hook up to my camper tomorrow after work and see if it's close to level. 558892

I got the adapter a day early which I appreciate and it went together rather easy. I didn't have 1-1/2" open end wrench so I had to find one of those buteverything was fine. I haven't tried pulling my RV yet but it should be OK. Thanks for your fine service and friendly sales folks. It was great doing business with you. 61190

The Adapter fit the truck F 350 fine but the hitch didin't fit into the adapter. My Reese hitch was a older slider (1998) and would not allow pins to be installed due to binding. I had to upgade a portion of my slider hitch (side railles) to allow this setup to work. Assembly of the adapter was easy and it was delivered on time. 203714

Great product, great price. Easy to assemble, and fit right into my factory Ford puck system as it should. Simplified my delima of what to do with my hitch after trading in my old truck, and refitting to my new truck. 464195



- RP30156
by:

Product was received within a few days. Assembly was easy. A few minor adjustments to get the unit to lock in the pucks properly and you're ready to set the hitch. The only issue you have to be aware of is your hitch height so your trailer is as close to being level as possible. This raises your hitch a couple of inches whcih made my trailer not level. I could not lower the 5th wheel hitch any lower. This is the only reason I gave this a 4 star rating and not a five. I am looking into a new hitch which I am sure will be purchased through etrailer. The support you receive from etrailer is 5 star. 498691

I purchased this for my 2017 Ford F350 with the under bed rail system. I have a Pull Rite slider that this fits perfectly for. I was a little concerned about the two working together, however after talking with the very knowledgeable people of etrailer, I knew I had picked the right rail kit. 413207

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

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

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

Installation was slightly problematic but nothing that couldn't be overcome with some patience. Instructions say a 1 1/2 inch socket, but I don't know where one would fit. Get yourself a crescent wrench that will adjust to that large size if you don't have a combination box/open end that size. Instructions were fairly straightforward. I had a little difficulty adjusting the anchor bushings to match the pucks in the truck bed, but finally got there. It also took a few tries to adjust the tee pins (half turn at a time, reinsert lynch pin) so that the locking handles tightened down properly without having to use too much or too little force. All in all I'm very happy because there was no drilling in my brand new F250. It does make the hitch sit a few inches higher in the bed of the truck, so your 5th wheel may have to be lowered and/or pin box raised. But I'm sure that will vary with each person's truck & trailer combo. 429793

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

I cannot express to you how happy I was with the ordering process+ the help I got getting the right product. I bought a 5th wheel adapter for my new Ford F350 superduty 8ft. box to fit an older hitch. The adapter plate arrived 2 days after the order was placed. The plate took me 25 min. to install. Thanks for the help! PS Great fit up. 147766

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

The product is excellent. Easy in and out. I pull 2 large trailers 5th wheel and goose neck There are no issues swapping back and forth. I would recommend installing at least one pad lock on the cam lock arms. Have a friend who had his stolen from his truck. It wasnt locked.

Just installed the Reese Rail Adapter in my 2015 Ford F-350. It fits the factory 5th wheel prep package perfectly. The only issue I had was with fine tuning the latches (trial and error) but even so, this was a breeze to install (15-20 minutes). As always the shipping is FAST! I had the kit at my door two days after ordering. 160026

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

The product was delivered on time, 3 days as promised. Nothing was missing from the box. Easy to put together took me about 10min, adjusting it to fit my truck was easy. It is worth the money, I would recommend this product. This is defiantly the way to go if you don't want to spend big bucks on a completely new 5th wheel system.i used my older 5th wheel slider from reese lined right up, this product saved me about $800. The guy i talked to was very helpful, knowledgeable and great customer service. Keep up the great work etrailer. will defiantly be shopping from here again. 484342

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

I purchased a Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches to adapt my old 5th wheel hitch to my new Ford truck. It arrived promptly after ordering, assembled easily, and works great. It was a great reasonably priced alternative to a $1000+ new hitch made for the under bed rail system in the new Ford trucks. Very pleased with the product and with etrailer. 581942

First the puck mounts. If you have the short bed, you'll want to use a sliding hitch, like the Reese Elite Series Slider, part # RP30144 which will drop right into the pucks.

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • Will PullRite SuperGlide Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit Ford F-350 With Factory Rail Kit
  • It would depend on the model Pullrite Superglide hitch you have. If it uses industry standard rails then you would need an adaptor like part # RP30156. This would lock into the puck system in the bed of the F-350 and allow you to attach the hitch. If you have a hitch that does not use industry standard rails, we do not have a rail kit that would work for you. If your SuperGlide does not use standard rails you may want to order a truck without the factory under bed kit and then contact...

When not using the fifth wheel hitch you would be able to remove the hitch and adapter to have a totally empty truck bed.

For the Ram factory prep package the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers the direct fit.

Although it is still pretty hefty, the head unit part # BWRVC3006 can easily be removed off of the base unit # BWRVB3305 to help make moving the whole hitch more manageable.

Since you now have an 8 foot bed you will most likely have no need for the slider function of the # RP30084 hitch.

  • For your 2016 Ford F-250, to get the factory style system I recommend the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches # RP30126. This is a custom fit for your truck. You partner that with the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider, Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 18,000 lbs, # RP30144 which is the only sliding hitch designed for that factory system. You will want a sliding hitch with your 6-3/4 foot bed to ensure...

  • Adapter for SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ford F-450 with Puck System
  • It may be possible for you to use the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30156 with your 2017 Ford F-450. If your 18K PullRite SuperGlide mounted to industry-standard rails (ISR) like what you see in the accompanying photo then there is a solution. You would need to ensure the SuperGlide fit rails that measured 22 inches apart on center from front-to-back and either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches apart on center from side-to-side. Generally...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Minimal Bed Contact for 2017 Ford Super Duty with Factory Prep Package
  • On models that have the factory 5th wheel prep package with the 4 pucks you would not be able to use the Anderson adapter # AM3200 because you would have to use the picture frame adapter # RP30156. Since both it and the Anderson are adapters it is not advisable to use an adapter in an adapter. I recommend using a hitch that will mount directly into the puck system in your 2017 Ford Super Duty because it will have minimal contact with the truck bed and using the proper hitch for the trailer...

  • Reese Slider Height with Adapter for Tonneau Cover Use on 2018 Ford F-360 Short Bed Crew Cab
  • The Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider - Single Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30083 the hitch head has an adjustable height from 15-1/4 inches to 18 inches. The slider handle sticks up about 6 inches above the head but it also can be cut down if desired according to my contact at Reese and the hitch jaw handle can be mounted upside down for storage. The height of the adapter # RP30156 is 3.47 inches from the bed to the top of the adapter. For a tonneau cover, I recommend the...

  • Are the OEM Ford Prep Package and Aftermarket Reese Underbed System the Same on a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The factory underbed mount on the 2015 Ford trucks is nearly identical to the aftermarket version. The hitches that fit in the factory prep package will also fit the aftermarket version, # RP30126. There is also an adapter, # RP30156, if you do not want to use one of the hitches that fit directly in the underbed system. The adapter accepts hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails. For a short bed truck with the OEM prep package or with the aftermarket underbed system...

  • Adapter To Install Existing Reese 5th Wheel Hitch In 2012 Ford F-350 Dually w/ OEM Prep Package
  • For mounting above bed fifth-wheel hitches on your 2012 Ford F-350 dually, we have the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter, # RP30156. The Reese Adapter will attach to the factory Gooseneck prep package and is designed for customers who have an existing 5th wheel hitch and a factory gooseneck/fifth-wheel prep package. Please note that if you have a 6-3/4 foot bed, it is recommended to use a sliding fifth-wheel hitch to have clearance when making sharp turns. For in-bed wiring, we have...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed and a Reese Slider Fifth Wheel hitch the rail kit you'd want is the part # RP50066-58 which is a confirmed fit. This is a custom fit rail kit that will install in much less time than a universal kit and will minimize drilling. Most likely you do not have the factory rail kit as you'd probably know if you did. If you did have the factory rail kit it would look like 4 pucks in the bed of your truck and the adapter you'd need is the part # RP30156...

  • Under-Bed 5th Wheel Kit for a 2013 Ford Super Duty
  • Thank you for sending the pictures. Your truck does not have the under-bed rail kit for the fifth wheel prep package. If you would like to add an under-bed fifth wheel kit to your 2013 Ford Super Duty, you can install the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail Kit, # RP30126. This will provide the 4 pucks in the bed just like the fifth wheel prep package that is offered by Ford. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. For a fifth wheel hitch, you can use the Reese Elite...

  • Lightweight 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford Puck System
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # DM6175 weighs approximately 99 lbs. This adapter will fit into the factory puck system on Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks from 2011 - 2018. It will then allow for 5th wheel hitches that have above bed industry standard rails (ISR) to be used with the factory puck system. For a lightweight alternative that has the same function as the above adapter, I recommend using the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # RP30156 which weighs in at around 55 lbs and is...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel adapters are nice but they aren't ideal for short bed trucks as they will not give the needed clearance to make tight turns. What I would recommend is the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550038 which fits the factory rail kit package without the use of an adapter and automatically slides back as you make tight turns to provide you with the needed clearance to make sharp turns. This hitch also has a 21k capacity.

  • How To Use a RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2019 Ford F-250
  • In order to use the RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch on your 2019 Ford F-250, I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # RP50074-58 if your truck DID NOT come with the factory puck system in the bed or the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP30156 if your truck DID come with the factory puck system in the bed. The Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails will give you the...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2012 Ford F250 w/ Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Kit
  • Because your F250 is not a long bed model, I would highly recommend you go with the Reese Elite Series w/ Slider, part # RP30144. Although the current trailer you are looking at has a v-type nose on it that might work okay with the # RP30142 and have proper clearance for making turns, having the sliding hitch would allow you more flexibility in the event you switched to a different fifth wheel in the future. Both the Reese Elite Series w/ Slider # RP30144 and the non-sliding model,...

  • Can Andersen Ultimate Connection AM3200 be Used in Factory Prep Package in 2017 Ford F-350
  • There is an adapter for the factory puck system in your 2017 Ford F-350. It is # RP30156. It has 2 sets of mounting slots for a hitch. The inner set is spaced 20-1/2 inches apart on center and the outer set is spaced 29 inches apart on center. But there is one problem. The picture frame # RP30156 is an adapter and the Andersen hitch # AM3200 is also technically an adapter and using an adapter in an adapter can lead to unknown performance and/or problems. Ideally you would use a hitch...

  • Factory Bed Rail Adapter for a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with 6-1/2' Bed
  • I do have an adapter that will allow you to use a 5th wheel hitch compatible with industry standard rails (ISR) on your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with the factory puck system but the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter part # RP30156 will not work as it is designed to be used with the Ford factory puck system. For your Sierra 3500, I recommend using the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # DM6194 which will mount into the factory puck system and allow you to use most 5th wheel hitches...

  • Recommended Curt 5th Wheel Hitch Legs For Compatibility With Ford Factory Rail Kit
  • For your 2017 Ford F-250 with 5th wheel prep package, I recommend using the Curt OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch Legs for Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package - 24,000 lbs # C16017. This will allow you to use your current Curt A16 head and add the legs to work with your factory puck system. This is an easy bolt on installation that will create the # C16520-16017. This will be a cleaner look than using the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-250
  • If the 2016 Ford F-250 has the factory hitch prep package you would only need the part # RP30156 so that you could install your Reese 16k hitch. If your new truck does not have the hitch prep package you would need a rail kit designed for your truck. For that you would want the part # DM8552000-71. This is a custom install rail kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling.
