Heavy-duty, custom brackets dramatically reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Outboard design ensures simple access to mounting points. Brackets, 10-bolt base rails and hardware included.


Features:

  • Installation brackets mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for 5th-wheel rails
  • Base rails sit in truck bed and allow installation of 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • Fast, simple installation with outboard design
    • Extended-length base rails allow for mounting farther out from truck frame
      • Avoids underbed components for easier access
      • Cuts down installation time by more than half compared with universal kits
    • Custom brackets mount to existing holes in truck frame, minimizing drilling and measuring
  • Thoroughly tested kit is compliant with strict Society of Automotive Engineers guidelines
  • Kit includes brackets, 10-bolt rails and Grade-8 hardware
  • Compatible with B&W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches
  • Sturdy, black powder coated steel resists corrosion


Specs:

  • Base rail dimensions: 48" long x 1-7/8" tall
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Reese's outboard installation kit for your fifth-wheel trailer hitch was designed with safety and convenience in mind. Just like the original custom mounting brackets, these brackets install using existing holes in the truck frame, minimizing installation time. The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended-length rails. These above-bed rails are 5 inches longer than standard, universal fifth-wheel rails so that they will match up with the mounting points on the brackets, which sit below the bed and outside of your truck's frame. The result is a much simpler installation process, wherein most underbed components can be easily avoided. Because you are working outside the frame rails, you also have easier access with your tools and more room to work, making the whole process less of a pain.


The base rails included in this installation kit feature a standard 10-bolt design. Each of these rails attaches to the underbed brackets with two carriage bolts at both ends. A single bolt is used in the center of each rail to further secure it in your truck bed. The result is a set of base rails that remains firmly in place thanks to 10 points of contact.


This entire installation kit is built to be SAE J2638 compliant and has been extensively tested per specified accelerated-life-cycle criteria for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The requirements for testing are based on the European-style test of 900,000 cycles, making this testing process among the most thorough and intensive in the industry.

Simply Amazing!!! I ordered my installation kit on Friday the 30th, and it arrived at my home within 5 days. The communication with everyone at etrailer is second to none. Everyone I dealt with was very helpful and professional. Don't hesitate in purchasing anything from a Great company & staff

Directions were not great. I was unable to fish bolts through frame. Took me a lot longer than 4 hours to install

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



by:

This did not fit my truck right. Front brackets fit fine. The rear brackets lined up with all the holes but the chassis strap brackets are wrong. The spacers are also too short. Contacted e trailer. They checked inventory said their boxes were all wrong also. They contacted the mfg and i waited a month only to get a box of bolts and spacers and no straps. Had to have some fabbed locally. This is for my 2024 silverado 2500 custom.



by:

Installation was good and very happy. Thank you



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

The costom bracket kit is of heavy steel,powder coated for protection, from your video it is going to be a lot easier to install and save time,alot less drilling and mounting of components, I am very satisfied with this product and cannot wait to install it on my 2013 Ford f150,will be pulling a 25 foot 5th wheel camper, thanks trailer for a great product



by:

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.



by:

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!!!!!



by:

Still waiting for my package that was supposed to be here yesterday. It's been bouncing around 2 states clear on the other end of the country. I'll change my review if it ever shows up at my door.



by:

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!



by: 08/23/2023

The item looks great but the brackets are both for the passenger side of the truck. I called and etrailer is shipping out another set. My only real complaint is delayed shipping and I am now running behind on my install.



by:

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.

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...

The product was fine but the service from the etrailer folks Is excellent. I had issues with my order (my fault) and they did everything they needed to do to get my issues resolved. Their service was very much appreciated!

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Frame Bracket for a 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    Most 5th wheel rail kits are going to be custom for that vehicle, so you are not going to be able to swap them over to the new vehicle. However some kits do use the same rails, so you'd just need different frame brackets. If you can let me know specifically what rails you have, I can see if they'd be compatible with your new truck. If not, you'd need an entirely different setup. If you want to stick with Reese, then you'll want to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation...

  • What Base Rails are Recommended for 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
    For a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, the recommended Reese Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches is, # RP84FR. These above-bed rails are 5 inches longer than standard, universal fifth-wheel rails so that they will match up with the mounting points on the brackets, which sit below the bed and outside of your truck's frame.

  • 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.

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit to Fit 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500
    The fifth wheel rail kit you'll need for your Reese slider hitch is the part # RP84FR which is a confirmed fit for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500. This is an outboard rail kit so you wouldn't be able to use just the brackets to use your current rails.

  • What 5th-Wheel Hitch Do You Recommend for My 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500?
    For the best hitch for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 with an 8-foot bed, it depends on if your truck has a factory OEM puck system or not. If your vehicle has OEM pucks, I recommend the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # RP58FR. One of the great features of the Reese M5 is that it includes a single-piece, always-ready Talon jaw that wraps around king pin to ensure proper connection. It also has an impressive 27,000 gross towing weight capacity and a vertical...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Underbed Mounting Kit For Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitch That Fits My 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
    I spoke with a representative from Resse Products. I was informed that Reese has not had an underbed mounting option for the Chevrolet Silverado 2019. You can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part # RP84FR, but it is an above the rail option. This is a universal mounting kit that will be compatible with your Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch. I have included a product description link below.

  • Is There an Underbed Mounting Kit Available for 5th Wheel Hitch on 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 6-1/2 Ft Bed
    I have a solution for you, but unfortunately for the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 with the 6-1/2 foot long bed, there is not an underbed mounting kit available. For this reason you would need to use an above bed rail kit and 5th wheel hitch. I recommend using the Reese # C16541 and rail kit # RP84FR, which is a custom fit for your truck. The # C16541 gives you a bit extra fore/aft travel on the slider than some of the other available hitches for your truck with 12" of travel, and the dual hook...

    It sounds like you just have a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 without the factory prep package. If that's the case then we still have fifth wheel hitch options even for models without the factory prep package (pucks). That said, you'd need to install a set of above bed base rails, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit part # RP84FR which will then work with most slider fifth wheels hitches like the Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # C16541.

However you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP84FR, which is the outboard installation rail kit for your 2021 Silverado 2500. This would currently be the only option available for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 that provides you with outboard mounted rails.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2020 GMC 2500 with Rotating Pin Box on 2021 Eagle 29.5 BHDS
    Since the trailer has a rotating pin box, you will want to utilize a fixed mounted hitch. The rotating pin box moves the pivot point of the trailer for the turning clearance you need for your 2020 GMC 2500 Crew Cab with short bed. If you don't already have that fixed mounted hitch, then I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3710 if you have the factory pucks. If you don't then I recommend the Reese 5th Wheel...

  • Fifth Wheel Options for a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Pulling a Trailer w/ a Rotating King Pin
    We definitely have a few options available for this situation. First and foremost, sidewinder style pin boxes cannot be used with the B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W due to how they connect to the under-bed rails or gooseneck, like the # BWGNRK1020-5W. It causes too much movement and wear to the connection points, which could cause failure.

For a 2021 Silverado 2500, I'd recommend the Curt # C16429-204 bracket/rail kit which would provide industry standard rails that are compatible with your Reese hitch. This would be a less expensive alternative to the Reese # RP84FR. If you'd like to install a 7-way trailer connector in your truck bed so you don't need to run the trailer connector wire...
