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 356688

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


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

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

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


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

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

  • Custom 5th Wheel Base Rail Brackets Compatible with 2012 Ram 3500 4x4
    For your 2012 Ram 3500 Long Bed 4x4, the brackets you need are Curt Custom, No-Drill Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram # C16420. This will work with the industry standard rails you referenced. Technically you shouldn't combine brands so I also recommend getting the complete rail kit # C16420-204.

  • Reese Bracket Kit to Install Outboard Fifth Wheel Rails in 2015 Ford F-350
    Sounds like you have a set of Reese outboard style fifth wheel rails to install in your 2015 Ford F-350 and need the correct bracket kit to fit them to the truck. For that what you'd need is the part # RP56016. Then the correct hardware kit for attaching the Reese rails to the brackets then is the part # RP58430.

  • Recommended Mounting Brackets for Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch in 2015 Ford F-250
    To go with your Reese # RP30047 fifth wheel hitch I suggest the # RP56016 brackets. They're confirmed to fit your 2015 Ford F-250. These are custom designed outboard brackets which will be easier and faster to install than universal brackets. They also reduce the amount of drilling into your truck's frame.

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for Rail Kit for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    You have to match the brand of rails to the brand of bracket kit, but if you have Reese rails the best bracket kit we have is the # RP50066 which is a custom fit kit for your truck. You'll need the hardware kit that attaches the rails to these brackets though as that hardware is considered one time use. So for that you'd want the part # 58164. If the rails you have are a different brand let me know and I'll see if we carry the matching bracket kit.

  • Recommended Reese Outboard Brackets for 2020 Ford F-150
    I have a solution for you, but the Reese # RP56016 are only confirmed to fit on the F-250. Instead, you'll want to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034 which are a confirmed fit on the 2020 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 foot bed. These brackets are designed for outboard mounting 5th wheel rails only.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2014 Ram 2500
    Yes, we have a set of Reese custom fit fifth wheel rails for your 2014 Ram 2500. For that you'd want the part # RP50054-58 which is a confirmed fit and will work well. It's a custom fit so it won't require any frame drilling and will install in about half the time as a universal kit. For just the brackets you'd want # RP50054.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Base Rails for 2001 Ram 2500
    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56016 is not a fit for your 2001 Ram 2500. This kit is only a fit for 2011-2016 model years of Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. For your 2001 Ram 2500 I recommend using the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # RP30035 as there isn't a custom bracket kit available. If you already have the base rails then you will need the brackets and hardware # RP30439.

    Fifth wheel brackets # RP56016 are specifically for the longer Reese rails, # RP30153, which are 48 inches long. If your rails are Reese and 48 inches long by 7-1/2 inches wide by 1-7/8 inches tall then # RP56016 is the correct bracket kit. If your rails are shorter than 48 inches then you will need bracket kit # RP50026 instead. Bracket kit # RP56016 comes with hardware to mount to the truck frame but not the hardware to attach the rails to the brackets. For that hardware you will need...
