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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

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 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 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

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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!!

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

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

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

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

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

We had our dealer install the RP30156. They were more than satisfied with the product. We had a 2014 F350 and installed this to make our Reese 5th wheel hitch work in our 2018 F350. 466781

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

Perfect fit to mate a Husky 26k W 5th wheel hitch to the puck system in my 2012 F350. Can easily remove the entire frame/hitch from the pucks as an "assembled unit". It requires another pair of hands but only takes minutes. 694200

I installed this adapter in my 2019 F-350 Super Duty Long bed. I won’t kid you, you need some patience when it comes to adjusting it to fit your truck. Each mount hole seemed to be at a different height thanks to Ford. But it took all of about 20 mins to assemble and install. Fits great once you set the depth adjustments. Will see how it does towing this afternoon. 666287

This was the perfect fit for a 2019 F250. Our other truck was in the shop and we needed to haul the toy hauler with our new truck. etrailer customer service was great because we needed this next day shipping to complete our camping trip. The F250 is a short bed and no slider hitch but there was still plenty of clearance to the cab. 661560



- RP30156
by:

Easy to remove and re-install. The down side is the above bed box vs the rail system adds an extra height which elevates the nose of our 38 foot 5th wheel TH above level for hauling. another point you should know if you do purchase this item make sure that you inspect the hardware carefully - really carefully ! the lock handles x 2 times had slag in the threads. with the assistance of etrailer Reese sent me a replacement set which were worse than the first ones. Reese then paid me to get the threads cleaned out. 653632

This adapter frame is very sturdy and it works perfectly. My only complaint is that one of the four "lever castle nut assemblies" had a weld burn thru and damage the internal threads. I took pictures and had communication with etrailer personnel, but in the end I received no resolution and with my vacation time upon me, I had to grind out the damaged threads so as to salvage the part and utilize the adapter frame. 628219

  • There are adapters for the factory 5th wheel mounts in your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 but # RP30156 is not one that will fit. If by standard bed you mean the 6-1/2 foot bed then the adapter you can use is # DM6194. If you have the 8 foot bed then use adapter # DM6206. Your Reese hitch will fit these adapters.

  • Recommended Underbed Hitch Option to Use Reese 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD
  • There are 2 different options that I have for you to utilize an underbed hitch with an adapter so that you can use your Reese 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30051 in your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. The first option would be to use the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30868 along with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 which will give you industry standard base rail points compatible with your 5th wheel hitch. This option looks very much like the OEM towing...

  • Demco Hijacker Autoslide Compatibility with 2017 Ford F-250 Factory Rail System Holes/Pucks
  • For your Demco Hijacker Autoslide, if you have the above bed rail version like the 18K # DM8550034 or the 21K # DM8550035, then you will be able to use the adapter for your factory puck system. This adapter for your 2017 Ford F-250 is the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs # RP30156. If you want the hitch that will fit without an adapter, the # DM8550038 or # DM8550024 would be the options. You may also want to consider...

  • Compatibility of 26K Husky 5th Wheel Hitch with 2019 Chevy 3500 or Ford F-350 Factory Prep Pucks
  • For a 2019 Chevy 3500 with factory 5th wheel prep package, the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 8' Bed - 21K # DM6206 will allow you to use your 26K Husky hitch, but you will be restricted to 21K for towing. To get that higher towing capacity, you can use the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Single Jaw - 27,000 lbs # RP30895 which is the only hitch rated for that large a capacity. For a Ford F-350, you...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Adapting a Curt A16 Sliding Hitch to a 2019 Ford F250 without Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Pkg
  • The Reese Elite underbed rail kits are the same as the Ford factory rail kits like you mentioned, but Reese does not offer an underbed rail kit that fits your truck. If you wanted this style of rail in a 2019 Ford F-250 without the factory rail kit you'd have to get the rail kit from a Ford dealer and have them install it. The Reese Ford Rail kit adapter part # RP30156 does also fit Reese Elite rail kits which means a Curt A16 hitch part # C16521 could be used. If you were to buy a...

  • 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...

  • Can Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter be Used with 2019 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • Andersen states that the Ultimate Connection part # AM3200 can be used on truck beds that are longer than 6 feet in length. Since the truck bed of your 2019 Ford F-250 measures 6-3/4 feet it would work fine for you. Especially considering the nose of your Keystone Cougar 29rks is tapered and the pin box is extended. You'd need a set of fifth wheel rails installed in the bed of your truck too though. For that the Reese rail kit part # RP50074-58 is a custom fit and would be your best...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in a 2017 Ford F-350 With Factory Prep Package
  • To answer your second question first, yes, the Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Adapter # AM3200 can be used with a Roto Flex pin box. It however cannot be used with a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box. However, on to your first question, the Andersen installs into industry standard fifth wheel base rails so it will not work in your 2017 Ford F-350 that has the factory prep package. In order to install the Andersen into the prep package it will need the adapter, like # RP30156, which means...

  • Underbed Mount and Auto-Slider 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab Short Bed
  • Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30051 is a manual slider hitch. For an auto-sliding hitch I recommend the Demco HiJacker # DM8550022. It can be installed on a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed with air bags using custom under bed installation kit # DM8551005. The frame brackets of this kit are narrow enough to not interfere with air bag mounting brackets. You mentioned adapter # RP30156 which is an adapter for Ford trucks with the factory 5th wheel prep package. It does not fit the 2006...

  • 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 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...

  • Will Demco Rail Adapter # DM6175 Fit Reese Elite Pucks on 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • The pucks for the Reese Elite systems are in the same exact location as the Ford Factory Rail Kit pucks. This means that the Demco 5th Wheel Adapter for Ford OEM Prep Package # DM6175, which is indeed a bit shorter than the Reese # RP30156, will fit the Reese Elite Under-Bed Rail System on your Silverado 3500 perfectly. This will allow you to use your existing hitch (as long as it attaches to industry-standard rails) while keeping the overall height as low-profile as possible. The correct...

  • Recommended Underbed 5th Wheel Rail Kit for Reese Hitch on 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6.5 ft Bed
  • For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 6-1/2 foot bed, the underbed system I recommend is the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30868. With these rails, you can use either the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider, Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 18,000 lbs # RP30144 which fits perfectly and has the wiring harness or you can use an adapter and other hitch options. If you want to use another hitch, you will...

  • Comparing Curt and Reese 5th Wheel Hitches for Use with a 2012 Ram 3500 8' Bed
  • When it comes to choosing the best 5th wheel hitch everybody has a subjective opinion based on their experience and the experience of people they know or have spoken with. Most 5th wheel hitch manufacturers have good/better/best choices so if someone were to use a good option from Curt but a better option from Reese (or vice versa) that would influence their opinion. For example, when you input your 2012 Ram 3500 into our fitguide the first couple of options that pop up are from Curt...

  • Using a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch with Factory Prep Package on a 2918 Ford F-350
  • I do have a solution for you but the Curt X5 adapter # 16310 does not work with the factory gooseneck hitch on the 2018 Ford F-350. Instead you can use adapter # RP30156. It is made to fit the factory puck system (instead of the gooseneck hole) and your Patriot 5th wheel hitch will fit the adapter. You could also use Demco adapter # DM6175 for the same purpose. I have linked videos of both adapters for you.
