Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Like a solid, simple hitch that works well and won't break the bank
  • Use your truck bed for other things and want to take out the hitch often - this is one of the lighter sliders
  • Have a dually truck or aren't super tall and like having longer handles to make it easier to throw open the jaws and operate the slider

No, if you:

  • Tow frequently or over long distances and want a smooth, quiet ride
  • Use a tonneau cover often and don't want to have to take out the hitch to close it
  • Go around tight corners often and want a slider that moves easily every time

Features:

  • 2-Jaw locking system provides more jaw-to-king-pin contact than slide-bar models
    • Less rattle
    • Greater security
  • Square-tube slider provides clearance required for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds

  • Vertical load limit: 4,000 lbs
  • Installed hitch height (including rails): 15" - 18"
  • Travel: 10" front to back
  • Limited lifetime warranty


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.

I give etrailer 1 star I would like to give them no stars (less than poor) for this transaction. I received this hitch Thursday 2/10/2022 the box was in a very tattered condition. I opened the box on the next day Friday 2/11/2022 it appeared that the box did not contain all of the pieces for the hitch, looking at the box it showed that there should have been 2 boxes, I received box 1 of 2. I called and spoke with someone at etrailer they informed me that UPS had damaged the second box in shipping, and that they had returned box 2 of 2 to etrailer. I was never informed by UPS or etrailer of what had taken place. I never received any notification that the first box had been delivered. The only correspondence that I have received was an email from Carol C informing me that she was notified that my order had been delivered, she also sent me this link for me to write a review. I have been told by the person that I had spoken to that my missing parts to my hitch would be shipped. It is now 2/14 I still have not received any notification of my parts being shipped, or when I will receive them.

Ordered this hitch for my 2014 Chevy,it came in two boxes and was put together on the work bench in no time at all. and I also ordered the custom rail kit RP50064-58. Just in time for summer camping.


Comments
By the way I didnt have to cut my heat shield or remove my exhaust pipe when installing the custom rail kit.

I purchased the Reese dual jaw slider and install bracket kit. Everything arrived in three days in perfect condition. After watching the install video and reviewing the enclosed instructions I installed the assembly myself. It took approximately 4 hours . As you can see I also did additional steps, cutting the rubber bed mat to fit around the rails. Also undercoating the brackets to blend in the wheel wells. Etrailer is definitely the place to go for all your RV needs.




by:

Everything came when expected. Easy to assemble with very detailed instructions. I was missing 1 part but a call and an emailed picture was quickly handled and resolved. I have not been disappointed with etrailer.




by:

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.




by:

Quick delivery hitch required minor assembly it was open box but looked like new. Works great very pleased with purchase.

After a year of use this hitch is still like new. I am still very happy with this purchase

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.




by:

Product arrived very fast. Packaging was badly damaged in transit but all part were there and still in great shape. Still very happy with purchase and communications with the company. All updates were given from order accepted items prepared and shipping information. Very good company to work with.




by:

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

Still working great.I have room my hitch out a couple times not the railes and it was simple.I am berry satisfied with the hitch and mounting plates i went with.I highly recommend this product.

The box arrived with an email from your company stating that the carrier UPS had put in a claim for damages. The shipping box was torn open on each end, I did not even try to open the cardboard box for fear I would not be able to send it back. The shipment is sitting on my front porch exactly where UPS left it.

This hitch has a feature or two we didn't even expect. It was an easy install and is performing great. Plenty of maneuverability and rock stable. etrailer's service was incredible and stayed on top of the delivery until we got it. We thought they went the second mile to make sure we got our hitch.




by:

This hitch was used and missing parts I waited 3 months for this hitch only to have someone who did not do there job properly !!! it must have been a return and sent to me without inspecting the return it was more than likely sent without inspection /sad my time and my money awaiting the return

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.

Ordered the Reese 16K square tube slider on Wednesday and received it on Friday even using the free shipping. That is a remarkable delivery on any product especially a very heavy 5th wheel hitch. Assembly requires only a few basic tools. Took my time and within a couple of hours had it installed and ready to use. Bed rails were already installed.


Comments
Have towed my 36 Cedar Creek 5th wheel about 600 miles with the hitch. No problems. Does what it is designed to do. You can spend more if you wish but this is a good solid hitch. Also would recommend etrailer.com to anyone as the place to buy. Keep up your great service.

This is a great hitch. I've been using it for a year now and have had no problems with it.

Reese also makes a round tube slider, part # RP30075

, which will bind less then a square tube slider.

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).




by:

I'm very happy with the product, service and price. I originally had a used non sliding Reece fifth wheel hitch installed in my 6 1/2 ft. Tundra Bed. It didn't have enough clearance for backing into some spots and my new truck cab got dented ($1,700 repair bill). This sliding fifth wheel is the answer, very easy to install on same bed rails.

BTW etrailer doesn't recommend a non sliding fifth wheel for my truck. Smart.

I finally got the hitch installed. Everything went great, thanks again for the great service.

Works as advertised. Assembly directions very poor. Extra parts included that just confused installation. There was NO reference to these extra parts.

I currently have a 2014 GMC 2500 four door short bed and I am going to replace the Husky 15K 5th wheel unit I have because the head on the unit doesnt have the pivoting motion I would like to have for unhooking and hooking up on unlevel ground. My rails are the Reese RP5066-58 and the center points where the hitch fits into the rails is 22 from front to back on each side as you are looking at the unit. What I am looking at is purchasing the RP30051 5th wheel hitch but I was wondering if the 22 center points that my rails currently have will work without having to re-drill and move them. If this unit isnt compatible with the 22 centers can you let me know what distance it requires and if there is another unit that may fit better let me know that also, thanks

  • Calculating Truck Bed Clearance for Towing a Fifth Wheel
    Anytime you wish to tow a fifth wheel trailer using a truck with a bed any shorter than 8 feet, you will need either a slider, like part # RP30051, or a Sidewinder like those found on the page below, to relocate the pivot point further to the rear to provide the necessary clearance. You can calculate how much clearance you will need. Use the formula on the Sidewinder page linked below to ensure there will be enough space between your truck cab and trailer when executing a 90 degree turn....

  • Why Can I Not Mount a Fifth Wheel Hitch so that the King Pin Sits Behind the Rear Axle of the TRuck
    The main problem with mounting the hitch so that the kingpin falls that far back in the bed is that having all that weight behind the rear axle would lighten the load on the front axle to the point that steering control and braking power might be compromised. A much better alternative would be to use a hitch with a slider such as part # RP30051 or a Sidewinder rotating pin box.

  • Is it Possible to Use a Fifth Wheel with a Ford F-150 Supercrew
    You may be able to use a Sidewinder depending on the width of the trailer. A Sidewinder attaches to the trailer pin box and is locked into place on the fifth wheel, moving the pivot point from the hitch back to the pin box. I have included a link to a Sidewinder FAQ page that has a formula for calculating if the Sidewinder will provide enough clearance for your particular trailer.

  • Is Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch Necessary on 2004 Ford F150 with 5.5 ft. Bed
    I strongly doubt that the extended pin box on your trailer will provide sufficient clearance between the truck and trailer, even when using a slider. The fifth wheel hitch manufacturers strongly state that with the 5.5 foot bed, the only possible way to obtain proper clearance between the trailer and truck is to use a Sidewinder replacement pin box. To determine how much clearance you will have when using the pin box you currently have, measure from the rear of the truck cab to a point...

  • What Kind of 5th Wheel Hitch Will Fit a 2005 Chevy Silverado with a 5 Foot, 9 Inch Bed
    For your 2005 Chevy Silverado with a 5 foot, 9 inch bed, you will most likely need a sidewinder. This means you will have to do a little measuring. It is a simple formula, but your measurements have to be accurate. (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from center of fifth wheel hitch jaw to truck cab (in this case only, this should be 1-1/2 inches closer to the cab than the center of the axle) B = Length of Sidewinder arm (16K = 22 inches, 19K = 22 inches, 19.5K = 22 inches) C = Width...

  • Installing a Reese RP30051 On a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Diesel
    Reese part # 30051 is a 16,000 pound capacity slider hitch. The slider unit allows 10 inches travel to allow more turn clearance. Fifth wheel hitches are not particularly difficult to install for someone with average mechanical tools and ability. Thanks to custom fit install kits, fifth wheel installation is even easier now than in years passed. If you write back with the model year of your truck, I can help you find a custom fit install kit. These kits include the brackets that attach...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Be Towed with a Slider Hitch in the Maneuvering Position
    You cannot tow the trailer with the slider hitch in the maneuvering position. The trailer should actually be centered directly over the rear axle or a few inches forward of it but not behind it at all. That will cause all sort of issues such as steering and braking problems, it can make the headlights point up, and the capacity behind the axle is lower than directly above it or slightly forward. What you could do instead which would be much safer is add a Sidewinder to the trailer. A Sidewinder...

The diagram I have linked for you at right shows these recommended minimums for safe 5th wheel towing.

  • How to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with a Truck that Has a 5-1/2 foot Bed
    For a truck with a 5-1/2 foot bed the only option for towing a fifth wheel trailer is to use a Sidewinder pin box with a stationary hitch. Slider hitches don't give enough clearance for use with a truck with a bed length as short as yours. If the hitch you have is a slider hitch you can still use it, but you will have to leave it in the slid forward (towing) position all the time. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have know in order to pick...

  • Can I Tow a Trailer with the Slider Hitch Close to Tailgate With Cargo in Bed of Truck
    A slider hitch like the Reese # RP30051 will move the hitch and king pin 10 inches closer to the tailgate to increase your turning clearance. Unfortunately, you cannot tow with your slider hitch slid back because it's for tight maneuvers only. The hitch is positioned so that the pin weight of your trailer is directly above or slightly forward of the rear axle. Behind that point, the capacity of the truck is lower and it can also unweight the front of your truck which will cause braking...

  • Are You Supposed to Grease a 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin
    There is no reason to grease the king pin on a 5th wheel trailer since the skid plates should be greased. I hesitate to say that you could grease it up if you wanted to only because if the grease attracts dirt and debris it could cause excessive wear of the king pin or hitch jaws. But just a light coating of grease wouldn't hurt to reduce noise and wear a little.

  • Why is My Slider Stuck on my Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Square Tube Slider - 16,000 lbs?

    We do not recommend to install a fifth wheel hitch on a 2002 Ford F-150 Super Crew with the 5-1/2 foot bed. You would have to use a Sidewinder with a standard hitch, which moves the pivot point back 22 inches toward the tailgate. Even with the Sidewinder installed on your vehicle you will not get enough clearance between the truck cab and your fifth wheel when making a 90 degree turn. We recommend at least 4 inches of clearance and with the Sidewinder it will only give maybe 2 inches on...

  • Is the Sidewinder Fifth Wheel King Pin Any Longer Than the Standard King Pin On Fifth Wheel
    The Sidewinder Fifth Wheel King Pin relocates the pivot point from the connection of the hitch and the king pin to the point where the pin box connects to the trailer, thus providing 22 inches of additional clearance between the rear of the cab and the trailer. The Sidewinder will attach to your pin box on your fifth wheel and replace the standard king pin you have now. It will keep the king pin in the same location as your standard pin box. It is not any longer. The Sidewinder can also...

    The decision of a specific truck, size of the truck, and the option of gas vs. diesel is a huge consideration for towing a fifth wheel trailer. Since you have not purchased either the trailer, or truck yet, you are right to do your research ahead of time, and you have fewer limiting factors.

  • Can You Use a Spray In Bedliner After Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation

  • Can the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider # RP30051 Be Left in a Truck Bed
    You do not want to do this. It can damage the hitch but more importantly if it were to fall it could badly injure someone. If you try to lift the whole hitch and base out together it is going to be difficult. All you have to do is unbolt or unpin (depending on the hitch model) the head from the base. Remove the head, then remove the base. This is the safest way to remove the hitch when you are alone.
