Heavy-Duty Towing

Specially designed for the serious tower, this fifth-wheel trailer hitch mounts directly to your medium-duty, cab-and-chassis-style truck for absolute stability and maximum towing capacity. This hitch is not intended for light-duty pickup trucks, and its towing capacity will be limited to the gross towing weight rating of your vehicle. Installation of the Reese low-profile fifth-wheel trailer hitch may require welding and moderate fabrication to ensure that the hitch is connected either directly to your vehicle's frame or to a substantial steel support structure that connects to the frame. Do not fasten to your truck's floor only.



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.

by:

heavy and strong! But terrible design. Forward and back pivots smooth but side to side the fifth wheel moves on a half moon under two pins... first time out I thought I was loosing the trailer. Every corner expect a slam and your truck to shift. Its embarrassing to ride around with a truck that sounds like it’s going to fall apart. Would not recommend.




by:

was a fast and easy order arrived a day earlier than expected i will order from etrailer again cant beat the price and the good service




by:

After several local rv stores said they did not have hitch that would work for my 2005 c4500 I found this hitch on etrailer. It was heavier, 25000 lbs capable, than
The local dealers (16000). I called etrailer and they were extremely helpful. I needed this quickly and was going to spend the money to have it overnighted but the lady asked where I lived. When I said central Missouri she said they could send it regular mail and I would get it the next day at no extra cost. It arrived as promised and it was easy to install. etrailer is the only place I will use for trailer parts. Great company and great service, they know what they are talking about!




by:

FYI Y'all need to get the dimensions right the base plate is not 20 1/4 inches center to center left to right it's 19 1/4 inches with the brackets flipped in and 15" on center front to back. Brackets flipped out would be 22 1/2 inches on center with brackets out.




by:

Took almost a week before etrailer shipped it, but then it arrived within couple days.

Great hitch, perfect for those with Flatbed Trucks.


Comments
Easy installation, to flatbed platform. Great hitch, I have towed over 100 5thwheels with it this past yr. I like how it will automatically open, then reclose when you back up up to connect. Components of the hitch are really tight when new, but seems to work better after a few uses and continued lube spraying. Overall very satisfied..

Purchase and shipping was a breeze. Reese hitch had poor QC. I had to have the side panels re-tapped as all 4 bolt holes were full of slag from the welding process. Once the frame was mounted, the top head would not drop in as designed. The use of a wood block and a sledge solved the problem. The ears for the pins were slightly bent in. Although the powder coat is good (partial cause why the head didn't drop in) the thickness caused problems getting the handle on. I had the drill out the handle and sand down the shaft. A bit more work than I expected. Looks to be strong and safe at this time. Once installed, it works as designed. Just be prepared to add some time to the installation.




by:

So overall this is a good hitch but would recommend an upgrade. I own a 2005 Freightliner Sportchassis. I pull a 14k fifth wheel. The hitch is an overall good design. The Sportchassis has predrilled holes already in place to fit this hitch. No drilling necessary. The only problem that I have with it is the side to side motion of the hitch head is very abrupt. The fore and aft movement is very smooth. The hitching and releasing is good. The hitch is built solidly. The head assembly rides on 4 metal roller assemblies and is supposed to roll left and right. With weight pulling on the head it rubs against the metal on the frame and provides excessive friction for the head. Once the trailer pivots enough, the head slams against the roller pins and sounds like the trailer is gonna break free. A very disturbing sound. My previous hitch was a b&w in a f250 and it was smooth as silk. The hitch does provide all that I need from it. With comparison to the other MDT hitches on the market it is the cheapest. I will probably with time upgrade to another hitch but it does provide what I need it for. If you are trying to save money on a MDT hitch, it works. If money is not an issue I would probably look at alternatives.

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Install on a 2008 F450 Western Hauler
    Since you will not be able to install regular above the bed 5th wheel rails on your 2008 F450 Western Hauler you will have to have a custom 5th wheel installation using the low profile hitch # RP30054. This hitch requires a custom professional installation since it requires welding a steel plate to the frame. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

    The only option for your flatbed 2011 Ford F-450 is Reese hitch # RP30054. It does not have a cushioned feature but does have everything else you are looking for.

  • Positioning a Fifth Wheel Hitch on a GMC 3500 Cab and Chasis with Flatbed
    Depending on the weight of the Fifth Wheel Trailer, this could pose a major problem. You want a Fifth Wheel directly over the rear axle, or just forward of the rear axle. Putting it behind the rear axle would put too much weight on the tail of the truck causing the nose of the truck to lift. This can result in poor steering control, excessive wear on the rear tires, and potentially bottom out the rear of the truck. I would suggest using a Sidewinder in conjunction with the Fifth Wheel....

    For your 9 foot flatbed truck., I recommend the Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 30,000 lbs # RP30054 for your hitch. This hitch is recommended to put the king pin 4 inches ahead of the rear axle. Depending on your trailer, you may or may not have clearance for turning at that point, so you will need to do some measuring. From that point 4 inches forward of axle center, measure to the rear corner of your flat bed. Then you will need to measure from the center of...

  • Recommendation for Installing a Fifth Wheel Hitch in a Flatbed Truck
    There's really no easy way to install the fifth wheel hitch and rails you have currently into the bed of your truck that now has an aluminum flat bed. It would take a very custom install that would require a qualified fabricator to come up with a way to attach the rails to the frame of your truck. Typically for flat bed trucks we recommend the Reese Low Profile Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30054 that you referenced as it is lower in height and works well on flat bed trucks but also requires...

    The only fifth wheel hitch I would recommend for your International 4700 that we carry would be the Reese Low Profile fifth wheel hitch part # RP30054. There isn't a install kit available for this hitch though. You would need to take the vehicle to a qualified fabricator to have the installation custom fabricated. You may be better off getting a fifth wheel hitch for larger vehicles like semi-trucks depending on what you are planning on towing. The # RP30054 has a 30k capacity.

    Any 5th wheel hitch must be secured to the truck's frame. With standard pickups that have a bed the hitch will attach to brackets that attach to the truck frame. In an installation like yours where the vehicle frame is accessible the hitch can be mounted directly to the frame rails without the need for installation brackets. Please note that 5th wheel hitches do not require safety chains. From your photo I cannot see enough of the installation to say whether or not it is correct and safe...
