Video Transcript for Review of Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Outboard Mounting Brackets - RP56016

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Reese Quick-Install custom outboard brackets for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. Now this kit is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 to 2016 Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty trucks without the OEM prep package.And on a custom fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this'll work for your application.Now, these are custom outboard brackets, which will dramatically reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. These installation brackets will mount beneath your truck bed, and they provide the attachment points right here for your fifth-wheel rails.Now, these are just like the original custom mounting brackets. These brackets installed below the bed, and they do use existing holes in the truck frame, minimizing installation time and will help minimize drilling and measuring.

And it cuts down that installation time by more than half compared with universal bracket systems.The biggest difference with these, these are outboard brackets, and they're designed to install outside the vehicle's frame. So the result is a much simpler installation process where most underbed components can be easily avoided because you're working outside the frame rails, and you also have easier access with your tools and more room to work, making the whole process, less of a pain.Now these outward brackets are designed to work with the extended length base rails. We do sell those separately on our website. They're part number RP30153. Now those above bed rails are five inches longer than the standard universal rails so that they'll match up with the mounting points on these brackets, which will sit below the bed and outside your truck's frame.You can see it does include the hardware for mounting these brackets to the vehicle frame.

Nice set of instructions on how to install them. And these parts are a nice sturdy black powder coat steel, so they do resist corrosion.But that should do it for the review on the Reese Quick-Install custom outward brackets for the fifth-wheel trailer hitches.

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.

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.

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!

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


Can’t use the carriage bolts that you supplied, except in the middle of the rail. There’s no room to put a socket on the nut between the beam and bed, there’s just enough room to use an open end wrench and torque the bolts from the bed side, Which means you have to buy 8 bolts. A video stated the same thing, you believe it’s a one man’s job, it’s not. That’s why you supplied the carriage bolts.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Mounting Bracket Compatibility with 2012 and 2015 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56016 will fit both the 2015 Ford F-250 and 2012 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 foot beds. If you want the brackets and rails, then you will use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP56016-53.

  • Could Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit be Used with Pullrite Fifth Wheel Hitch
    There are some versions of the Pullrite Superglide hitches that are designed to fit industry standard rails which is what the bracket kit part # RP56016 is designed to work with. Which we have this as a kit with rails with part # RP56016-53 but if you have a hitch that is designed to fit the Pullrite rails we don't have a solution. Typically Pullrite puts "ISR" on their hitches that use industry standard rails like this as well as I know the 2700 is for this type of rail too.

  • Can Outboard Base Rails # RP30153 and Outboard Brackets # RP56016 be Used for Reese 16K Hitch
    The Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153 will work with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56016 but they are only designed to fit the following vehicles: 2011 - 2014 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty 6-3/4 Foot Bed without Factory Rail Kit 2015 - 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty 6-3/4 Foot Bed without Factory Rail Kit 2015 - 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty 6-3/4 Foot Bed without Factory Rail Kit 2011 - 2014 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty 8 Foot Bed without Factory Rail...

  • Will RBW X-16 Fit Industry Standard Above Bed Rails on 2012 Ford F-250
    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56016-53 will give your 2012 Ford F-250 industry-standard rails, allowing you to use fifth-wheel hitches that mount 22” front to back and either 20-5/8” or 29” wide. From my research the RBW X-16 fifth wheel hitch will fit industry-standard rails but if you will want to take a quick measurement of the hitch legs from front to back as well as their width to verify this.

  • Does Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit part # RP56016-53 Come with All Needed Install Hardware
    The Reese Outboard Rail Kit part # RP56016-53 that you referenced comes with all hardware needed. That means all of the hardware that installs the brackets to your truck and all of the hardware that installs the rails to the brackets. I attached an install video for this rail kit for you to check out as well.

  • Determining if PullRite 5th Wheel Hitch Will Fit Reese Custom Base Rails for 2014 Ford F-250
    As you mentioned, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit # RP56016-53 is indeed confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford F-250. This custom-fit kit will provide industry-standard, above-bed base rails in the bed of your truck. In order to determine if your existing PullRite 5th Wheel Hitch will fit these rails, you will need to know if it is compatible with industry-standard base rails. PullRite manufacturers a few different model hitches, some of which are compatible...

  • Outboard Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fit Confirmation for 2016 Ford F-350 Rail Location Dimension
    For your 2016 Ford F-350 short bed (or long bed) the Outboard Reese Rail Kit part # RP56016-53 that you have is listed as a fit. Since this is a custom fit, outboard kit it will be the easiest kit to install. The frame brackets being on the outside of the frame makes things much easier. The center of the jaws of the hitch will end up approximate 7/8 of an inch in front of the rear axle center. From the rear edge of the truck bed to the rear edge of the rear rail will measure 27-5/8 inches.

    For your 2014 Ford F-250 short bed without the factory rail kit the Reese rail kit part # RP56016-53 is a confirmed fit and would work well for you. It will work perfectly with your Reese 16k fifth wheel hitch as well.

  • Easy to Install Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 Long Bed
    The easiest to install fifth wheel rail kit for your 2015 Ford F-350 will be a custom outboard install kit like the Reese kit part # RP56016-53. This is compatible with your Husky hitch as well. The custom install kits are much easier to install than universal kits as they minimize drilling. This kit is an outboard kit which means that the brackets are on the outsides of the frame which allows for an easier install.

  • Which Base Rails For Reese Pro Series 15k In 2011 Ford F-250
    We've got just what you're looking for. For an above bed rail kit that will accept any 5th wheel hitch that installs into industry standard base rails you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56016-53. This kit will allow you to install your Reese Pro Series 15k hitch on your 2011 Ford F-250 and comes with all of the hardware needed to install. I've linked an installation video of these rails on a similar F-250...

  • Installing Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails on a 2012 Ford F250
    This can seem counterintuitive, but the 27 5/8 measurement for the install of the Reese rail and bracket kit # RP56016-53 applies to both 8 foot and 6 3/4 foot beds. Slider hitches will generally sit closer to the cab of the vehicle whilst in the towing position, keeping it almost centered over the axle. Long beds using fixed hitches will stay at that centered point. I have also included an install video of this system being installed on 2012 F-250 long bed for you to check out.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Correct Reese 5th Wheel Brackets for a 2011 Ford F-250
    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets part # RP56016 are a fit for a 2011 Ford F-250. That said, they are for the outboard rails which are 48" long. If you have inboard rails which are 43" long and more common you'll need the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP50026.

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for 2006 Ford F-350 with 30095N Rails
    The rails you have are the inboard style and the bracket kit you mentioned is the outboard style so you'd need a different set with part # RP50082 since I am pretty sure you have a 2006 Ford F-350. This will work with your Reese hitch as well.

    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56016-53 confirmed to fit your 2015 Ford F-250 uses the # RP30153 Reese Extended Length Fifth Wheel Installation Rails and the # RP56016 Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. The # RP50026 brackets not a fit for the outboard 48 inch rails, but are a fit for the 43 Inch rails # RP58058.

  • Are Firestone Air Bags Compatible With Reese Quick-Install Brackets and Rails on 2015 Ford F-350
    Yes, the Firestone # F2703 are compatible with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit # RP56016-53. The # RP56016 brackets mount on the outboard side of the frame rails on your F-350, and the air bags will install on the inboard side. I also recommend adding an onboard air compressor like the Firestone Air Command II # F2219. This will allow you to control the air pressure wherever you go from the cab of your truck. It is a dual path system so you can control the air...

  • Brackets and Hardware Only to Mount Reese 5th Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    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...

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation and Rail Kit for 2013 Ford F-350
    Sounds like the previous owner removed the hitch and the base rails that you would see installed in the bed of the truck. If you did happen to still have the rails though and they are 22 inches apart on center (the standard rails design) then the Reese 16k hitch part # RP30047 would fit them and work well. Otherwise you would want a rail kit # RP56016-53 as well to give your truck bed a set of rails for the hitch to install into. This is a custom install kit that installs in half the time...

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Frame Brackets for 2013 Ford F250 SD
    The Reese Outboard Quick Install Brackets you referenced, part # RP50082 are a fit for 1999-2010 F250 models, but wouldn't be a fit for your 2013 model. For a 2013 model, for outboard brackets, you would need the # RP56016-53 bracket and rail kit. This kit includes the hardware to mount the brackets to the frame, the 48 inch long bed rails and all hardware.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2011 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
    With a 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a short bed you are going to want a sliding hitch to give you clearance around tight turns. Which hitch you get is going to depend on the weight of your trailer. Both hitches use the same Quick-Install Custom Base Rails for your truck # RP56016-53. The custom base rails will make it a lot easier and faster to install with less drilling. You may also be interested in the trailer wiring kit for your truck # 41157.

  • 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.
