Video Transcript for Reese Accessories and Parts RP30156 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30156. This is the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. It has a 20,000 pound weight capacity.Now this part is designed to convert your Reese Elite Series Underbed Installation Rails, which we do sell separately on our website, to the standard abovebed 5th wheel base rails. This will allow you to use a 5th wheel trailer hitch that attaches to the standard abovebed rails. This part here will actually mount to your Elite Series Rails via the Power Puck System. I'm just going to show you the bottom here. This is what will drop into that Power Puck system.

You'll see the tabs right here, there's 4 of them. What you'll do is open this up, I'm going to show you how, and then you'll drop this into that Power Puck System on your vehicle. It locks into place, there's no drilling or welding required. The finish on this is a nice black powder coat finish. Again, the way you do that is you'll pop off the pin and clip, do the same over here, pop off the pin and clip. Then what you'll do is open up these handles, open them up about 90 degrees.

Do the same over here. There you go. Now with them open like that, there's 2 handles right there. What you can do is lift this up, drop it into your underbed Puck System. Once it drops into the Pucks, what you'll do is just close these handles until the holes line up.

Put your pin and clip through there. Do the same over here. Close it until the holes line up, put the pin and clip in. What that does is it locks this base rail into that underbed Power Puck System. Again, the application for this is for Reese Elite Series Underbed Base Rails. Now this will also work with the factory installed 5th wheel towing prep package from Ford.

It does accommodate, you see these slots right here with the holes through there This will accommodate your standard 5th wheel trailer hitches with weight ratings of 15,000 pounds, 16,000 pounds or 20,000 pounds. The max capacity on this part is 20,000 pounds. This does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number RP30156. The Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches with a 20,000 weight capacity. .

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

Comments

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

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

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

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

The product worked great. With just a little bit of assembly my husband was able to install the adapter in under 30 minutes. Our Curt 5th wheel hitch dropped right into place. Excellent ! 208134

Comments

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 Underbed Rail Adapter in my 2013 Ford F-350 truck. It fit the factory 5th wheel prep option perfectly. Used it with a Husky EZ Roller Hitch, which I already had, real nice matchup. I ordered the adapter from Etrailer.com, the people there are very friendly and helpful. Got the part in 3 work days. Very happy with the part and the service. 79386

We purchased a new Ford F350 which was equipped with a 5th wheel hitch prep package from Reese. As our Curt hitch was only a year old we had to convert it to the prep package. The adapter made the job easy. 58309

All is working well. It makes it easy to take the hitch in and out so we have use of the bed of the truck.

when pushing lock handles it takes some force, metal digs into palm of hand. maybe they need to put some kind of rubber over the handle. this is a great product, saves a lot of money from buying a new fifth wheel 131137

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

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

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 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

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

I installed the adapter RP30156 into my 2012 F 350, which had the factory 5th wheel prep package. I installed my Husky 16K EZ Roller hitch onto the adapter. I did drop the hitch head down by approximately 2 inches. Overall project went well and I didn't have to buy a new hitch! 40537

I also have a EZ roller husky hitch and want to make sure it will fit the adapter was yours husky part number 07046 that is the part number I have? Thank youRich

The slots for the tabs that you pin down are 22 inches apart front to back. From left to right, the inner set measure 20-1/2 inches and the outer set measures 29 inches. Check the measurements against the tabs on your Husky Roller and make sure they match up.

I bought this for my husband's 2015 Ford 250 pickup. The product came right away. The installation was easy. He likes the fact that when you take the hitch out that there are no rails on the bed. It is heavy duty, well made, and nicely painted. We have not had an opportunity to use the hitch yet, but so far everything has been great. 186255

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

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

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

by: Curt08/19/2016


Product works well with my under-the-bed bracket assembly and 20K 5th wheel hitch. The only issue I see is that it raises the hitch height up a bit so an adjustment may need to be made to your current hitch or even the king pin assembly on your camper to provide for a more desirable and level camper setup. 285445

I'll have to give this rail adapter a 10+. Assembly was a breeze and with just a minor adjustment, the adapter dropped right in place. Sure beats paying 1600 or more for another 5th wheel hitch when I have one setting in the garage. Thanks again for a great product. 73613

Instructions could have been better. Seems like a lot of extra pieces for something that could be so simple to fit in the Ford factory puck system. It is heavy duty and does what it needs to do. Fit perfectly with the hitch that we ordered to use it with. 253408

Could not be happier with service and product. Underbed rail adapter arrived on time in great condition. Installation was easy (does require a 1 1/2" wrench) and it fit perfectly in our 2009 Chev 3500 with the underbed puck system. Thanks etrailer! 311836

  • Recommended Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ford F250 With Ford Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Package

You can use a 5th wheel hitch that's designed to drop right into the pucks, or you can use an adapter that sits in the pucks and provides industry standard bed rails for a standard 5th wheel hitch to attach to. 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.

  • 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...

  • Although the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, will not work with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156, I do have a solution for you. Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit, # RP30138, in your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory puck system. This offers a bolt-in, no drill installation which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your truck. Just one hole in the bed for the gooseneck...

  • Hitch Prep Package Adapter Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-250 with Hitch Prep
  • Yes, the Reese Elite Fifth Wheel Hitch Prep Package Adapter part # RP30156 that you referenced will fit the factory hitch prep package of your 2016 Ford F-250 and will give you a set of industry standard fifth wheel rails for a fifth wheel hitch. I attached an install video that shows it being used for you to check out as well.

  • 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 Identify if a Truck has Reese Elite or Signature Series Rail Kit Installed
  • Check out the picture I attached that shows the dimensions of what Reese Elite or Signature Series pucks would be in the bed of a truck like yours. If you measure the center to center distance of the pucks, and they come out to be 13 by 30 inches, they are Reese Elite rails that would be compatible with the Reese Elite 18K hitch # RP30142 or the 25K model, part # RP30143. If you wished to use a different hitch that's compatible with industry standard bed rails, an adapter is available,...

  • Will Reese 5th Wheel Rails Work with a Demco HiJacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • There is a version of the Demco HiJacker 5th wheel hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails but it does not look like yours is one of them. Yours looks like it fits the below the bed system so it would not work with the Reese rails. There isn't a Demco below the bed installation kit for your 2006 Nissan Titan that will work. So what I recommend is a new hitch and installation kit. Since your truck has the 6-1/2 foot bed you will likely need a slider to be able to make...

  • Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in Reese Elite Underbed Install Kit on 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • Yes, there is an adapter that you can use with Reese Elite series installation kit # RP30061 for your 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. It is adapter # RP30156. This adapter will accept 5th wheel trailer hitches that A) fit in industry standard above the bed rails and B) have feet that are 29 or 20-1/2 inches apart on center (side to side) and 22 inches apart on center (front to back). I have linked a video review and the instructions for the adapter for you.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • List of 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches that Fit Directly in Factory Prep Package on 2017 Ford F-250
  • There are several 5th wheel trailer hitches that will fit directly in the factory prep package in your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed. I have compiled a list of the options for you and linked videos for each of them. I like the B&W Companion hitch personally because it is such a well-made and versatile hitch. B&W Companion 20K # BWRVK3300 Curt 24K # C16039 or # C16545-16017 Curt 20K # C16530-16017 or # C16034 Curt 16K # C16520-16017 Reese Elite 26.5K # RP30871 Reese Elite 25K # RP30143 Reese...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 DRW With the Factory Puck System
  • Since your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty has the Dual Wheels, there is another solution for you to tow a gooseneck trailer. Since the factory puck system on your F-350 should already have a center puck for a gooseneck hitch ball all you will need to do is install the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP30137. This hitch ball will pop in and pop out of your bed without having to reach inside your wheel-well to unlatch the locking mechanism like you would with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Ford F250 Short Bed w/ Factory Tow Prep Package; Proper Hitch Height
  • The fact that you have the factory tow/prep package means that you have many options for fifth wheel towing. If you want a hitch that would drop directly into the pucks, which is the simplest application, I'd recommend the Curt Sliding Q16 fifth wheel hitch, part # C16520-16020. If you wanted to use something that's a bit less expensive, the Reese # RP30051 would work, but you'd need the # RP30156 adapter in order to install the hitch. The adapter would install into the pucks sunk into...

  • Will the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter work with a Ford OEM 5th Wheel Prep Kit and Reese Slider
  • The Reese Mounting Adapter Rail Kit, # RP30156, will work with the Reese 18K square tube slider hitch, # RP30084, in the Ford tow prep kit that is in your 2012 F-450. Since you now have an 8 foot bed you will most likely have no need for the slider function of the # RP30084 hitch. This means you can just leave the hitch in the towing position all the time, or, if noise is an issue with the slider portion of the hitch, you can replace the slider unit with standard legs, # RP30727.

  • Compatibility of 5th Wheel Hitches with Reese Elite Underbed System In 2016 GMC Sierra 3500, 8ft Bed
  • The Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C16530-16025 will not fit in the Reese Elite Under Bed Rails # RP30868. Only certain hitches are designed to fit in the pucks of the Reese Elite Under Bed rails, such as th Reese Elite Series Hitch, 25K # RP30143, the Elite Series Silder, 18K # RP30144, and the Elite Series Hitch, 18K # RP30142.

  • Mounting a Pullrite SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch # 2700 in a 2014 F-250 With 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • You are correct. The Pullrite SuperGlide Fifth Wheel Hitch, # 2700, requires the industry standard above bed base rails to mount in a truck bed. The Reese Elite Series Adapter, # RP30156, provides the mounting slots for fifth hitches that use industry standard base rails on Ford Super Duty trucks with the OEM fifth wheel prep package. The SuperGlide hitch will use the inner mounting slots (see photo) on the adapter. This adapter is not permanently installed in your truck, so you can...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2007 Classic Series Sierra With Reese RP30061 Installed
  • Since you have the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part # RP30061 installed in your Sierra Classic I recommend staying with the Reese name for a fifth wheel hitch. Although another manufacturers product may fit your puck system, they have not been tested together so there are no guarantees. The fifth wheel hitch I recommend is the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider and Wiring Harness, part # RP30144. This is an 18K hitch and comes with a 7-way trailer...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package
  • The king pin is the large pin on the trailer. For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit the 2012 Ford F-250 with the factory prep package you have a couple of options. First, the prep package was designed for use with the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches. If you have a long bed truck use # RP30142 with an 18k capacity or # RP30143 with a 25k capacity. If you have a short bed then you will need a slider, # RP30144, with an 18k capacity. The other option is to use an adapter,...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • Under Bed Rails and Parts Needed to Install Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • For an under bed fifth wheel rail kit that's compatible with your 2015 Silverado, you'll need the Reese # RP30868 under bed rail kit. If you think you might need to tow a gooseneck trailer sometime in the future, you might consider the # RP30158-68 which includes an integrated gooseneck hitch, which will give you the full flexibility to tow anything. If you don't already have a Q24 fifth wheel hitch, Curt offers the # C16545-16017 which is compatible with the under bed rails or puck...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty With Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • Since your 2015 F-350 Super Duty has the factory 5th wheel prep package you'll want to use the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 which is shown in the linked video. This adapter accommodates standard 5th-wheel trailer hitches with weight ratings of 15,000 lbs, 16,000 lbs, or 20,000 lbs. You can still use your 25K-rated hitch but the system capacity will be 20,000-lbs overall. I've linked for your reference an article on 5th wheel installation tips.

  • Industry Standard Rail Adapter Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350 with Hitch Prep

This is a Reese brand adapter though and not the one that Pullrite sells. As long as your hitch is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails this adapter would work for you.

  • To use your RBW Lil Rocker 15K 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the factory rail kit, I recommend using the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156. This will let you adapt the underbed base rails on your F-350 to work with any fifth-wheel trailer hitch that attaches to standard, above-bed base rails. Based on my research, the RBW Lil Rocker will in fact attach to standard, above-bed base rails, so this adapter will work great. I have included...
