Note: If using a slider, hitch will not adjust to lowest height setting.


Note: This fifth-wheel trailer hitch will not fit pickups with beds shorter than 6'. It also will not fit trucks with flareside/stepside bed. A minimum 13" extended trailer pin box is recommended.


Reese Double Jaw

Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Unlike the more economical slide-bar models, the rounded, 2-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.




Kwik-Slide Square-Tube Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

Fifth wheel showed up sooner then expected. Everything that said was going to be there was there along with some extra parts the instructions didn't really explain hopefully they weren't needed. Excellent experience and will definitely order again. 796490

I received the Reese 5th wheel 16,000 lb slider hitch from etrailer in June 2019; installed it in July 2019. Took around five hours to install the base rail kit and Reese hitch start to finish. So far so good, this heavy duty slider hitch works flawlessly with my F250/fifth wheel combo. It arrived in multiple boxes, had excellent instructions and an operating manual. For myself and other do-it-yourselfers, etrailer provides excellent support and installation videos to help with the install. 829963

Being a first time 5th wheel owner and After researching for the right 5th wheel hitch for my 2011 ext cab chevy Z71 4wd. and the best prices i went with the reese 16 K slider hitch. A must for a 6 1/2 ft bed. And etrailer had the best price and were very helpful answering all my questions The hitch arrived in 3 days, One of the 2 boxes was a little torn up but nothing was damaged, The instructions were great,and it had more than enough hardware needed for different apps. I had 2. choices for the mounting brackets,I went with the custom fit not the universal the custom brackets are strong and fit perfect. I watched a couple install videos online,there were not many on my truck people said you have to cut out your exhaust and your heat shield and drop the gas tank.I did not have to drop my gas tank i just slightly bent down the heat shield to reach above it then pushed it back up. I used the Allen button head bolt for the left front and had my wife spin the bolt with a long extension and ratchet while I held the nut and washers with a magnet and my finger tips,it was kind of a (pima) and took a little time but way better than dropping my tank. I did call Reese with a couple questions and suggested to use stronger shipping boxes. The only thing I had to adjust was the support for the parking brake cable. I did the hole job on the ground in my yard This also was a good time I replaced my rear brakes,checked my spare tire psi,and llubed my cable for the spare lift. Every one was verry nice and helpful from etrailer and Reese. I wish I was better with computers and could of made a video 638471

Instructions are very good, all parts came with the hitch and were well protected. This is the first time I've ever put one of these hitches together so I read the instruction thorough. There was some lubrication that was required. It took me 1 1/2 hours. The only thing I can add is when installing the upper handle for the release pin, it had burrs on the inside of the handle and made it difficult to slide onto the tube. Make sure you check for burrs and deburr before installing. I would still give them 5 stars. 736713

Fast shipping, a couple small spacers were missing from parts, luckily I had somethings laying around that worked. Went together fairly easily with only minor changes to brackets. Couldn’t beat the price here locally. 633505

Overall the product seems to be good quality. The instructions could be a lot more clear. After calling Reese, even the guy on the phone agreed that the spacers provided should be shown as going in above or below the bed. Unfortunately with the size of the U spacers provided, there would be no way to get the nut on the length of bolt sent. Also there were lock washers in the package which the CS rep didn't know what they were for either. Finally, the cotter pins provided are weak, 2 broke already and the handle to adjust the slider didn't have holes drilled for the cotter pin to keep it in place so i just drilled it myself. As a side note, the way the pins lock it in to make it removable, it has quite a bit of play which you can then hear when backing up or starting off.. Using on a Ford F250 2015 6-3/4 bed, pulling a FR 33BHOK (about 11k loaded). 628665

  • Does Short Bed 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Need to Use Slider Hitch Towing 2020 Montana 3741FK
    The towing capacity for the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD with the diesel engine is very impressive. I did some checking and it looks to be 27,500 lbs which means the trailer you are considering that weighs 13,755 lbs would be very easily towable. Now whether you need a slider hitch with the short bed does come down to a few factors since the short bed you mentioned is a bit longer than usual. If the trailer has a tapered nose and an extended pin box you most likely would not need a slider...

  • Fifth Wheel King Pin Weight and Truck Payload Capacity
    The hitch pin weight of 1400 lbs you stated is so close to your payload capacity, but that is not accounting for the 5th wheel hitch and rail weights or the loaded weight with cargo added.

The payload weight is spread out over the truck bed where the 5th wheel rails are mounted to the frame directly so are more secure.

  • Replacement Jaw Kit for Older Reese Hitch 30051
    We have a replacement jaw kit for your older Reese fifth wheel hitch # RP30051 with the jaw kit # 58056. That said, if the hitch is overall looking pretty rough I would probably replace the head and crossmember with the part # RP30047A instead to give you almost an all new hitch. But if everything looks really good on the hitch except the jaws I'd just go with the jaw kit.

    There are jaw replacement parts for Reese hitches, # 58056.

Make sure to keep your hitch lubricated according to the manual. Also check the springs on the inside after you have uncoupled the trailer and removed the hitch head. Replacement spring # 30776 is likely the one you would need.

  • Can a Sidewinder Pin Box Be Used with a Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The Reese fifth wheel hitch part # RP30051 can work with a Sidewinder, but you should note that you can't use the slider function of the hitch with a Sidewinder. Good news is that since you have a Sidewinder you wouldn't need to ever slide the hitch back. Sliding the hitch back with the Sidewinder installed would cause it to interfere with bedrails and tailgate. I attached a help article on Sidewinders for you to check out as well.

  • Can a Slider Hitch Be Used in a Long Bed Truck
    You definitely could use a slider fifth wheel hitch like the part # RP30051 in a long bed truck and just leave it in the forward tow position all the time. The only down side to this is that slider hitches have more moving parts so they tend to be noisier than stationary hitches when towing and weigh more which can make installing and removing the hitch more difficult. They also tend to cost more. If you are OK with these things then the # RP30051 would work just fine. Otherwise, the...

    Since you have the Lippert Turning Point pin box you would not need a slider hitch such as # RP30051. You would need a fixed hitch such as # RP30047. The Turning Point pin box moves the pivot point of the trailer back which is why a slider hitch doesn't need to be used (and really shouldn't be used, especially not slid back). The Turning Point comes with a universal wedge to lock out the ability of the trailer to pivot at the hitch. But a custom wedge will do the job better. For the...

When towing, trailer tongue weight or king pin weight is also part of payload." Therefore, if the payload capacity of your F-350 is 3,150 lbs (see label on driver door jamb) and your trailer has a loaded pin weight of 2,800 lbs then that means you only have 350 lbs left for passengers and cargo.

  • Why is My Slider Stuck on my Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Square Tube Slider - 16,000 lbs?
    I talked to my contact at Reese and he said that most likely the problem is the direction the pull pins on your Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Square Tube Slider - 16,000 lbs, part # RP30051, are installed. He said to check and make sure that the clip on the pull pins are on the outside of the rails, and that if they are installed with the clips on the inside of the rails, that will cause the slider to stop operating.
