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

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.

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!

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


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.

Easy but time consuming installation.

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.

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.

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...

Used it 3 times so far, does what it’s supposed to, the brackets fit the frame very good. Very happy with the setup.

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.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


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.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


What an interesting product to install. The mounting to the frame is easy. Getting the bolts through the bed and putting the nuts and washers on the bottom take a lot of patience. There is not a lot of room for your hands to fit between the bed and the frame. I took my spare tire down and I was able to sit under my truck that helped a lot.

  • Outboard 5th Wheel Hitch Bracket/Bed Rail Mounting Kit for 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500
    Assuming you're wanting outboard brackets which are easier to install and the 5th wheel hitch you're wanting to use is compatible with industry standard bed mounting rails, youl'll want to use the Reese # RP84FR which includes the # RP57FR brackets you looked at plus the compatible, longer bed rails for the outboard frame brackets. All necessary mounting hardware is also included. Reese confirms that this bracket/rail kit is a fit for your 2021 Silverado 2500.

  • Which 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit for 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
    I have a solution for you, but the # RP50066 is not the correct bracket kit for your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali. Instead you'll need to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP57FR, which are actually going to be easier to install because they're outboard mounting brackets so it's a great solution. If you need the base rails as well, you'll want the # RP84FR. I've linked a review and installation video of these for you to check out.

  • Undermounted Base Rail Brackets Needed For A 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 With Reese Base Rails
    The undermounted brackets for your 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 would be the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP57FR. If you needed the full kit with the base rails as well then you would want the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP84FR.

  • Can You Reuse 5th Wheel Frame Brackets From An Older Chevrolet Silverado To A New Silverado
    For your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, if your base rails are industry standard rails, then you can't reuse the brackets, but you can reuse the base rails as long as they are matching brands. If your base rails are 48" long, you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP57FR. If your rails are 42" long, you'll need a new kit, and you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit that Fits 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 without OEM Rail Kit
    The short answer to your question is you need the part # RP84FR which is a complete fifth wheel rail kit that fits your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500. The part # RP57FR is just a bracket kit and the # RP30153 is just the rails so since you need the rails and the brackets you'd want the part # RP84FR. Then you could install a hitch like the Reese M5 part # RP30928 which has a 20k capacity and a jaw design that allows it to be very quiet and smooth.

The mounting brackets are multiple pieces and do not require drilling to install on your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. Do note that certain trucks have threaded inserts in the frame you will need additional hardware from your local Chevrolet dealer(See install instructions below).

    I have a different option for you, but the Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets # RP50074 you were looking at is actually for a 2017-2022 Ford F-250 or F-350 and will not be correct for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500. Instead you will need the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck # C16429 which is confirmed to fit your truck and will allow you to use your current above bed rails assuming they are the industry standard rails and are made by Curt.
