2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 - Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit
  • Brackets
  • Reese
  • Custom

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.

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.

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


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.

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.

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.

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!!!!!

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

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. Bryan

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


Super Pleased with etrailer's products AND personal service from their highly knowledgable staff! I went to a local hitch installation dealer where they attempted to find Item #RP50074-58 ( 5th wheel RAIL KIT for my new '19 F-250 SuperDuty). The installer tried numerous warehouses and distributors across the U.S. but no one had this part! He suggested that I do some further research via the internet on finding this part and wished me good luck IF I did. I began my search with no luck; the reasons being given me were due to the pandemic, few,( if any) people were working and even FEWER warehouses were stocking items! Just when I thought I had exhausted all search possibilities; I reached John H. at etrailer. He was extremely professional, knowledgable and helpful in assuring me that they did, IN FACT, have my part # IN STOCK AND could ship it IMMEDIATELY! Ordered it on the spot (Friday) and it arrived before noon on Monday! I'm EXTREMELY pleased w/ etrailer's quality products; their availability and the friendly service of their staff. John H. went above and beyond in making my purchase easy assuring me that my item would arrive as promised, complete w/ tracking info and a phone # w/ personal ext. if I had any further questions regarding my order. NOW.... how can ya beat THAT? ....YA CAN'T! Have done business w/ etrailer in the past and will definately continue to do so in the future.

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

Never shop anywhere else except etrailer,,, every product I have ever purchased from them has been extremely user friendly and easy to install. I’m a novice handy man and even I can install their equipment with ease. I installed these 5th wheel brackets on my 2008 Tundra a year ago and after watching video and following the instructions, had zero problems installing them! Thanks again etrailer for your 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and support. You’ll be hearing from me again in the near future!

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.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


etrailer folks were awesome! I placed my order during the pandemic and some of the parts were on back order it took a couple of months to get everything together, normally I would have waited until things were caught up to place and pay for the order but these guys kept me in the loop via email. However I wasn’t to thrilled to see that the paint on the mounting brackets that I Oder was coming off and the hardware was rolling around in the box which also dinged up the mounting plates normally I wouldn’t care but I’m installing this on my brand new F250 so needless to say that I had to sand and repaint the custom mounting plates because you can see them in the wheel well. Other than that etrailer was awesome as well as the other parts that I had ordered! Thanks guys and gals

It was great to be able to adapt the 16K hitch purchased just a couple of years age for my Dodge Ram pickup to my new Ford F250. The brackets used the existing frame mounts and no holes had to be drilled in the frame. It was a bit of work to drill the bed floor holes, but the kit came with accurate instructions and the plastic galvanic corrosion protection and all mounting bolts for the aluminum body. Extra work required because the full plastic bed liner had to be notched so the tracks would bolt directly to the bed.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Accessories and Parts

  • 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.

If not then I recommend using the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch - Ford and Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C88KR since these will use your vehicle's OEM puck system and you'll be able to attach your current hitch to these rails.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2020 GMC 2500 with Rotating Pin Box on 2021 Eagle 29.5 BHDS

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.

    The # C16448-104 5th wheel mounting bracket kit you'd looked at is a fit for 2005-2010 Ford SuperDuty trucks, and wouldn't fit your Chevy. 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...

    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 # RP30083 and rail kit # RP84FR, which is a custom fit for your truck.

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.

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.

  • Fifth Wheel Options for a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Pulling a Trailer With 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.

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...
