Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP50081 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Quick Install Custom Bracket Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches. Now, this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2004-2014 Ford F150 trucks, all bed sizes. And on a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this part will work for your application.Now, these are custom installation brackets that will mount beneath your truck bed. They provide the attachment points right here, for fifth wheel rails. These are vehicle-specific brackets.

They're designed to mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame, so that will help minimize drilling and measuring, cut your installation time in half when compared with the universal bracket systems.Now, the base rails that attach to these, that'll sit in the truck bed, they allow the installation of the fifth wheel trailer hitch. We do sell those separately. It's part number RP58058. And just to show you, I happened to pull one of those. Here's one of the rails.

They come as a set of two. But here's what the rails would look like that attach to these brackets. And then, these rails allow the fifth wheel to drop into your truck bed.Now, in this part, the kit will include the custom bracket shown here. All the mounting hardware, and even a nice set of detailed instructions that describe how to install everything. You'll notice the finish on these is a black powder coat finish.

Helps resist corrosion.But that should do it for the review on the Reese Quick Install Custom Bracket Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches.

My 5th Wheel Rails came with Universal "L" brackets but these brackets seem much stronger and also look good on the truck. The main reason I purchased these was because it uses existing holes in the truck frame to mount. I didn't want to make holes that may not line up. These worked perfect for my 2006 Ford F-150. One advice I can give, buy some "ratcheting" open end wrenches and attaching the rails to these brackets becomes much better since there isn't enough room for a socket between the frame. 9315

I agree with the other reviews, allow yourself extra time and patience when installing this kit. It fit perfectly without drilling any holes in my new truck frame. Some of the bolts are near impossible to catch. It took me about 3-4 hours to install. Find someone to help who has skinny arms and long fingers....anyone who has installed this will agree. I am glad I used this instead of the universal "L" brackets, it was well worth the effort. 17953

The hitch install kit is a good product. It took about six hours to install because my installer had never put this kit on the new Ford with the aluminum box before and he wanted it to be right. There was some issues with the fit on the frame. Little things like welds not ground down and getting it to fit tight to the frame of the truck. He was able to fix all of the issues with out any problems. Just a little longer installation time is needed to insure a proper fit than we expected. Overall, a good product. I would buy this hitch installation kit again, and I do recommend it. 480261

I have purchased products from etrailer a few different times. I am always impressed how quickly it comes to my home. The product fit and worked great with detailed instructions and helpful video. I think where etrailer sets themselves apart from other online vendors is the customer service. I had some questions and I spoke with Bill on a couple of different occasions and he made me feel as if I was at my hometown hardware store. Thanks much, I have nothing but good to say about etrailer, their products and their people. 365776

The kit arrived within a few days-very happy about that. very easy to install. the directions were clear and pictures good. I went to the trouble of using a sharpie to mark the part numbers on everything before I started just to keep to all straight. I would note that on the 2017 F350 diesel the only problem bolt was on the driver side inline with the DEF tank. long skinny arms with flexible wrist is ideal (not what I have). I would also suggest taping the shims onto the outboard frame brackets to save yourself some frustrations. otherwise they are difficult to get and keep in place, especially on the driver side. the two nuts that go inside the frame tube come on/with a nice handle although a bit light on the wield. here again save yourself and tape the shims on before you try to insert two things into that hole, align and fasten the bolt-by yourself. I used an extension with wobble head and socket to turn the bolt while holding the nut "assembly" in place. I did remove the rear wheels and fender well liner-a must. Lastly, great customer service on the phone. Pleasant and patient answering questions. Wayde C - Montana 356688

Very easy to install. Measure twice, drill once. I used every piece of galvanic corrosion tape to protect the aluminum bed in the kit, probably could have used a little more. Even though I painted the edge of the holes after drilling, maybe some sort of insulator could be used there also. 543657

The hitch and mounting kit work fine for hauling my fifth wheel. The drilless mounting kit did not look like it fit correctly, the numbers and product were correct for my truck, I decided to install several bolts making it a bolt on kit. The overall assembly ans installation was a bit time consuming and needed two people to help move the parts and keep it true, but a year later and it still slips in and out without any issues. The mechanics of the hitch are still funtional and there is little to no play with in the hitch after thousands of miles used. Overall it is a hitch and preforms great. Downside is the weight of the unit making it impossible to SAFELY move with one person. 268564

Great rail kit. Fairly simple install. The instructions are easy to follow. I did not have to remove spare or rear wheels to install. Only had to have helper for the two bolts in the third row. Hint, tape the u spacers to the long handle nut that goes inside the bed cross member. I did install rails in my previous truck (seventeen years ago) so I kind of knew what to expect. Frame brackets are a lot better now. 380705

Very happy how soon the product I ordered was at my door step. 3 days after I ordered it. Put the base to my 5th wheel on my 2017 250 diesel sd took me around 5 hrs, would have been faster with 2 people. The base fit my husky 16k prefect when I done torquing all the bolts. Going to use this hitch to pull my 29.5 Durango EZ 1500. 550285

Five hours to install; which included a half hour searching for the key to the padlock on my spare. E-Trailer linked me to an installation video which really helped. I took my time and measured three times before I drilled the bed. Installation is a lot easier with someone to hold the bolts from the top. I fabricated mounting brackets on my last truck, but these were worth the money and I didn't have to drill the frame! Good design and straight-forward installation. My only issue was the video didn't show one bolt install that secured the driver's side rear bracket to the bottom of the frame. I was going off the video only and wasn't using the written instructions. Make sure you go step by step using both. Also, some parts are clearly for a different application so there will be a few parts left over. My experience with e-trailer was awesome. 154484

These brackets fit real nice and easy. Finish seems very durable. Makes the universal brackets seem crude. I did get one square washer that had the hole so far off center that it was hard to get through the large access hole in the frame. I found it much easier to push some mechanics wire through the little hole in the frame to the big hole in the frame, then connect the mechanics wire to the pull wire with the bolt and pull this through the frame. Product arrived fast and I loved all the support documents on your website. 93128

Well priced. Shipped quickly. Printed instructions, coupled with website video installations, made DIY very easy. Very simple setup, but a couple bolt areas were difficult to reach, and in my case, my wife was able to assist me to reach these areas. Total install took a few hours with minimal tools. Asked one question by e-mail and was answered next day prior to purchase. 78932


Comments

Easy to follow instructions, install involved removing a factory heat shield, which wasnt easy, but was completed. Small hands made a hard to reach area easier to thread a nut onto a bolt, all other locations were easy to complete. No problems a year after install. Etrailer had been prompt, easy to contact by email prior to purchase, to verify product, and prompt shipping. Followed recommendation to additionally purchase all new bolt kit with these brackets.

These are great brackets, well made, and will fit rails with 10 bolt or 4 bolt installations. I installed Curt rails(exact as Reese) and everything bolted up just as the instructions said. The reason I did not give them an excellent rating is because of the difficulty in the under bed installation. Somewhere I read that it was a 40 minute job for a pro and 80 for a DIY, but 5 hours later, I was done. Again, it is an issue with the new 2011 HD frame, but you must remove your spare so you have room to work, but the biggest pain was the heat deflector shields that GM has put above the exhaust system, right under the bed. There is no room to work, and taking the heat shields out looked to be very time consuming. I finally bent the shield enough to get the washers, locks and nuts on. Also, there is only about 2 inches to work between the top of the frame rail and bottom of the bed. You will need another person and a long screwdriver to be your other hand. The instructions say to torque all 1/2" bolts to 75 psi, but there is no way to get a socket, let alone a torque wrench in there. Still a great product, just plan for an all day event. 7969

Shawn K. I recently acquired a pro-series 5th wheel hitch without installation hardware for my F250. I acquired etrailer part number RP50026 easy install bracket kit and RP58430 hardware kit. I received the kits promptly, kits were complete and the instructions were plain. Everything fit the way they were supposed to. I didn't have to move or remove anything on the truck to install the hitch. I would recommend etrailer to anyone for all trailer needs. 347337

RP56002-53 Frame brackets did not properly match 2013 F-350 frame. Bracket holes had to be elongated (received approval from Reese Tech Service for this) because there was no way they would bolt to frame without modification. Brackets also had interference with frame rivets and bracket holes for rivets also needed to be elongated. Fortunately neighbor had a milling machine which was used to modify brackets. RP30869 Reese Titan 16K hitch with round tube slider was manufactured in China. Serious quality issues required first hitch be returned to Reese because it was not functional. Hitch could not freely rock fore-aft because of improper casting and machining. Mechanic assembling hitch to its saddle had to use hammer to assemble. Replacement hitch received from Reese with a missing grease fitting but no similar interferences limiting hitch movement. The hitch saddle rests on 1" diameter pins oriented fore-aft through the slider cross piece that allows hitch to rock left-right. As manufactured hitch can move vertically about 1/16" on 1" diameter pins and fore-aft 3/16". So when driving over a hard bump hitch slams up and down on the 1" pin clearance. When braking hitch moves forward until hitch saddle contacts cross bar on slider. Contact is on as-cast, not machined surface. Contact is only on left side. When accelerating hitch moves back until hitch saddle contacts forward side of cross bar on slider. Same issue with contact but now on right side indicating improper set-up for machining of saddle casting. Design concept is good but design execution and manufacturing are very poorly executed. I am considering modifying hitch and slider cross bar to eliminate excessive fore-aft slop (clearance). I have not come up with a solution to reduce the vertical movement. Serrated jaw hitching mechanism is nice but also poorly manufactured. When backing into hitch at any speed (hard/fast or slow) jaws close but locking handle cannot be locked. Vehicle must be pulled forward very slowly / delicately with pressure applied to locking handle to get it into fully locked position. Because of apparent quality and perhaps design issues I cannot recommend these Reese products. I purchased Reese products based on past experience with other Reese products. Never again. 254646

We ordered a bracket kit for our new 2017 F350. It was needed to install our Reese fifth wheel. which we use to pull our RV. Product was on back order by manufacturer, however Delisa at Etrailer diligently kept us very informed with updates & shipping status. My husband & son were able to install in a couple of hours. Looks great, outstanding craftsmanship & over exceeded our expectations! We would highly recommend!!!!! 337146

Purchased these brackets to retrofit a rail and hitch system I already had on a truck we bought. The brackets were good quality and were a perfect match for the frame. The layout instructions made the hole drilling for the rails very easy. My only fault with the whole kit was that the instruction schematic could have been a lot better. Other than that it was a breeze. I had the whole hitch installed in about 2 1/2 hours by myself, mostly in the dark with a head lamp. The staff I talked to on the phone was extremely helpful in making sure I got the exact parts I needed for my application. The woman I spoke with was very knowledgeable about the products and very friendly. Shipping was prompt and the tracking information was great. We will definitely be using etrailer again for all of our future hitch needs! 607080

  • Base Rails and Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ford F-150 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • Yes, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50081 will fit your 2013 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed; you will need to use Base Rails # RP58058 with this kit. The brackets and rails can also be purchased together at part # RP50081-58. Keep in mind that towing a fifth wheel with a 5-1/2 foot bed will require your trailer have a Sidewinder, and for the fifth wheel hitch you use to be a fixed hitch that is compatible with a Sidewinder. For this I strongly recommend the Reese Select...

  • Fifth Wheel Frame Brackets for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 New Body with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • Fifth wheel brackets # RP50081 are actually for certain Ford trucks and will not fit your 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2 foot bed. The comparable brackets that do fit your truck (new body style) are # RP50064. If you do not already have the rails then I recommend # RP50064-58 which is the complete kit. If you do already have some 10 bolt rails then you would also need bolt kit # RP58504 because the hardware is not meant to be reused. With the 5-1/2 foot bed you would either...

  • Rear 5th Wheel Base Rail Measurement for 2011 Ford F-150 XLT with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For your 2011 Ford F-150 XLT, the # RP50026 is not a fit for your 5-1/2 foot bed. It is a fit for the 6-1/2 foot or the 8 foot bed. For the 5-1/2 foot bed you will need the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50081-58 or # RP50081 for just the brackets. With this kit the rear edge of the rear rail will be 28-11/16 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed.

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Brackets Only for a 2010 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • First, for custom brackets, # RP50081 would be the best choice. The other brackets, # RP58426, are supplements to the universal installation kit so I do not recommend using them. Since your truck has the very short 5-1/2 foot bed you will need to either use a fixed 5th wheel hitch or a slider left in the towing position at all times and a Sidewinder pin box. A regular slider hitch will not be able to travel enough to allow you to make tight turns without hitting the truck cab and trailer...

  • Bracket Kit Recommendation without Rails for the part # RP50081-58
  • It sounds like you are looking to install the rails of the # RP50081-58 in another vehicle. For just the bracket and hardware that came with this kit you would want part # RP50081. For the hardware to attach the brackets to the rails you would want part # RP58430. You should note that the # RP50081 is only confirmed to fit the following vehicles: 2004 - 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed 2004 - 2014 Ford F-150 6-1/2 Foot Bed 2004 - 2014 Ford F-150 8 Foot Bed
