Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP56001 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Reese quick install custom outboard brackets for fifth wheel trailer hitches. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 model trucks. And on a custom part I always like to recommend that you go to our website and use our fit guide, putting your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this'll work for application.These insulation brackets will mount beneath your truck bed to provide attaching points to the fifth wheel base rails. These are custom outboard brackets which will mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame, and they sit below the bed and outside your truck's frame. The result with this brackets is you get a much simpler installation process because most of the under bed components can be easily avoided because you're working outside the frame rails.

You'll also have easier access with your tools, more room to work, making the whole process less of a pain. They will minimize drilling and measuring and it cuts down installation time by more than half when compared with the universal bracket systems.These are outboard brackets, so they do require the use of the extended length base rails. We do sell those separately. It's part number RP30153. I happen to pull one of these, and these are what will sit in your truck bed, and they install to these outboard brackets and allow you to install your fifth wheel trailer hitch to these rails.

These rails are the extended length, so they're about five inches longer than the standard rails.This part will include everything shown here on the table. It includes the two outboard brackets, all the grade A mounting hardware, nice set of detailed instructions, and it even gives you the fish wire to pull the bolts through the holes in your frame. But that should do it for the review on the Reese quick install custom outboard brackets for fifth wheel trailer hitches.

I would like to thanks all the staff i dealt with in ordering these brackets . They are well made and fit perfectly, very easy to install. Thanks Etrailer

These are great brackets because the angle flange faces away from the frame which makes it so much easeir to bolt to the bed rails in stead of having to fiddle with the nuts and bolts between the frame and the body which is a very tight space

Upgraded my truck to a 2019 F250 Superduty. Received my new rail kit and mounting brackets. Fits perfect!

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.

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.

Hi, George. Thanks for your email. I bought the frame rails to marry up with my Reese hitch and I wasn't disappointed. It installed on my 2003 f250 perfectly and hooked up to the 5th wheel without a problem.

They fit truck just like they were supposed too. Couple hr install with having to remove spare tire and heat shields to get access to bolt locations. Been supporting fifth wheel through thousands of miles. Thanks for helping me find right product for my truck!

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!!!!!

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


The brackets arrived in a timely manner. etrailer had a short video which assured potential customers that the brackets would bolt on to my year Toyota but because I have an 8-ft bed and was reusing my existing hitch and rails, I still needed assurance the brackets would work for me. I corresponded by e-mail with etrailer on this question. The etrailer representative I was in contact with requested additional information about my specific hitch and rails which I provided and etrailer confirmed the brackets would work for me. This all happened in a matter of hours. etrailer gave very prompt, accurate service. I attached the brackets, both front and back, and followed the instructions on where to drill through the bed for the rearward brackets and the drill holes in the bed were aligned perfectly with my old rails. The same held true for the front brackets...although I had not cinched them down as they are somewhat (1/2 inch perhaps) moveable. I installed both rails with the hitch in place and torqued the rails down. then torqued the front brackets down. Clearances due to the frame members prevent getting a torque wrench on the front bracket bolts so I just tightened them as much as possible. One person can install the brackets to the frame. It takes two persons to install and tighten the rail bolts. All in all, service was good and the product was good.

The fifth-wheel brackets have performed flawlessly since installed a year ago.

Bought this kit for my 2022 Ram 3500 long bed. This is kit fit perfect. Driver side you had to move wiring harness out of the way. Just take your time and it will go exactly as advertised. Great product. Want to thank Rodney for finding the right fit for my vehicle.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


This was an excellent product. I have put one in about 15 years ago that I bought from etrailer. The only difference this time was I had to cut out the heat shield on the passenger side above the exhaust. There was just no other way to do it. There was no way to bend it enough to get a wrench on the nuts. It took about 4.5 hours working by myself.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


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

Great service, the items ordered were exactly what we need to install the B&W 16K Patriot 5th wheel. B&W did not have a mounting kit to fit the 2021 Tundra.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


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.

Installing 2017 5th wheel brackets and rails . Thankyou for your service in sending me the right parts for my F250 . Took about 4 hrs to install and all holes were perfect in the side brackets . Just had to drill for the rail. I’d recommend your service...

I installed the hitch and brackets myself and am very satisfied with the bracket kit. I’ve towed my fifth wheel about 6 k during the past year and am very satisfied. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.


Comments
I have towed my fifth wheel about 15000 miles in total since installing the rail and bracket kits. No problems to this point and don’t see any reason to think I’ll have any problems in the future. I have nothing but praise for ETrailer. The people are re knowledgeable and give good insight on the installation process. Many thanks

It worked very well. I used it on a 1990 Chevy K2500, I believe it was for a later application but I drilled holes in the truck frame to match the brackets and it worked great. Thank you, Joe.
