Forged, Self-Latching Jaw

Self-Latching Jaw

The one-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel hitch provides absolute security with its wraparound design. Increased jaw-to-king-pin contact results in not only a stronger connection, but less noisy rattling and stiff chucking as well.


The jaw is also always ready to receive, so you don't need to use the handle to open it before backing up toward your trailer. As long as the bail pin is removed from the latching handle, the jaw will accept the king pin as it enters the hitch.


Finally, the jaw is self-latching, so it will automatically secure your trailer's king pin when it moves into the jaw.


Quiet, Comfortable Ride

Pivot Bushings

In addition to the tight jaw tolerance, a close connection between the head and the pivot bushings further reduces rattle and movement. And because the pivot bushings are independent from the head, they can be tightened to ensure a strong connection over time.


King Pin Indicator Prevents High Pinning

King Pin Indicator

This M5 hitch features a built-in king pin indicator to ensure proper hookup. This indicator is located on the back of the head along with a V-shaped notch that are both visible from the cab of your truck. The V-notch is lined up with the jaw at the front of the hitch, and can be used as a guiding point to line the king pin up with the jaw as you back up your truck. The jaw also has an internal plate that keeps the king pin from entering if it is too high to enter safely. As a result, the king pin indicator will only change from red to green if the king pin is fully engaged in the jaw.


Easy-to-Use Latching Handle

Lever and Hitch

This hitch's handle is designed for smooth motion and effortless operation. It requires only 2 fingers to use and won't bind up as you pull. In addition, the handle is long, so it's easy to access from outside of your truck bed. And the ergonomic grip makes it comfortable to hold and pull from different angles.

Installed in a 2018 GMC 3500 LB SRW Overall it was really easy to put together. Its light enough move in and out and very sturdy. I did not have a clearance issue with the Backflip cover regarding the stock handle. See pics. Just a heads up, I had an issue with the threading in the legs, etrailer was very understanding and sent me out replacements supper fast. I contacted Reese regarding paint guncked up in the threading and they were aware of the issue, they recommended running a wire brush or a tap to clean it out.


Comments
One year later. No issues. I get complemens about how easy the hitch is to use, the ability to slide stuff under it, and how much room I still have in the bed with the hitch in. Would buy again.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

I recently purchased a Reese M5 20K hitch for my new Silverado 3500HD, Crew Cab, 8’ bed. As usual, Etrailer pricing was very good and with free shipping to boot. The hitch arrived via UPS in just a few days after placing the order. Following the detailed instructions provided by Reese, the install into the factory “puck” system, was fairly straight forward. However, a word of caution concerning the install. There are 4 15/16” bolts that need to be torqued to 220-foot pounds and are somewhat difficult to get to. Fortunately, I was able to borrow a torque wrench that would accommodate the recommended foot pounds of torque. Also, you may have an issue if you need to place the hitch at its highest position. The release handle might protrude above the bed rails of your truck in this position. This will be a problem if you have a bed cover. Reese is/was well aware of this issue and sells an after-market handle that will correct this issue. Etrailer lists this handle on their Web page.

I have the Reese M5 for the Chevy towing package and it works great. No unnecessary movement hooks up easy and fit like a glove. The hitch is a bit more complicated to install than you make sound with getting the prescribed 220’ lbs of torque required but we got and it works great. And thanks to Molly E for getting our order straight and here when we needed it.

Love the hitch. Just as I ordered. It was the first new hitch in almost 20 years. I really like no rails in truck bed and the color- coded hitched indicator. Also, this hitch is much quieter than my last one. Thanks Etrailer.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


After a lot of research, I chose the Reese M5. The design is great. Assembly was a breeze, and it installs and removes very easily. The fitment with my 2019 Silverado puck system is perfect. I am much more comfortable with the single jaw hitch and with the M5's Easy Latching Handle, its a breeze to hitch and unhitch. etrailers price made it an even easier decision. Sometimes a lower price means a lower quality. Absolutely not the case here with etrailer. Couldn't be more happy with this purchase, Reese and etrailer

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Hitch assembly was fairly straightforward, took less than an hour. Did have to purchase a torque wrench since the one I had only went to 150 ft lbs. Figured I'd purchase it so I could keep it in the truck to make any adjustments, if required, and check that bolts remain torqued to xxx ft lbs over time. Had to make two small adjustments when I put it in the puck system, which was easy to do. The red/green indicator had popped out of the head unit. I figured out that it just needed to be popped back in to position. Haven't towed with it yet so I can't comment on that at this time. Hitch is beefy and I doubt will not be a problem handling our 5th wheel. So far I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Great overall customer service experience. Recieved product in good condition and in good time.

Overall this hitch is excellent. One very minor thing to complain about, the grip on the Handle tour within a few times of using. Also I noticed rust stains running/dripping down from up inside the head. I will investigate this further to see exactly what is rusting.


Comments
John, thanks for the review. The manufacturer does offer a limited lifetime warranty for these products as long as you have been maintaining your hitch. You can view the maintenance schedule in the instructions on page 3.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


We upgraded or RV and need a bigger hitch to accommodate the weight. I purchased the Reese M5 27K hitch from etrailer mostly be cause the hitch was $300- $500 dollars cheaper then every site i visited or shop I called. After ordering the hitch I received an email letting me know who was packing my order and who was shipping it. Using the link they provided was easy to track my order. I will search etrailer before looking anywhere else. Awesome Service!!

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Fantastic hitch, worked well with our 15,000lb Carri-Lite on its first 350 mile trip. Fast delivery, arrived 1 day early and all the boxes were un-damaged. Dropped into my F350 dually easily! The only issue has been noted by other buyers, Reese decided to put the cotter pins in and bend them over, fortunately they supply 4 more as you need to set it for your own truck. Removing them was hard I ended up using the metal fatigue approach by bending one arm of the cotter pin repeatedly until it broke off. All went well after that.

We are pulling a 16,000lb Cedar Creek trailer. This hitch is so simple to use! Set the trailer height, back up, and click, done. Snap the retaining pin and you're ready to go. Unhitching is just as easy. Very happy with this hitch. Drops right into the frame rails of the Silverado.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


After a year of use and towing from Alaska down to New York the only issue/complaint I have is sometimes the green plastic hitch indicator has come ajar from the hole it mounts into. The result is it doesn't display green when properly hitched. After unhitching it only takes a min to take the head off and pop it back in. Other than that it's has been great mounting I to the factory PUC system of my 2019 F350 long bed

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Very sturdy and reliable 5th wheel hitch but after a couple of trips during the summer, the green/red indicator mounting pin which is made of a cheap hard plastic material sheared off. I was able to di-assemble the whole indicator assembly, drilled a hole and replaced the pin with a metal pin. Anyway, don't get me wrong. I love this 5th wheel hitch because of it's simplicity and appearance. It also mounts perfectly to the OEM gooseneck mount on my 2019 RAM 2500 Big Horn. Aside from re-enforcing the plastic indicator pin, I would also recommend to have a heavy duty cover designed specifically for this model.

Excellent hitch! Have had the hitch for a year, towing our 40 foot 5th wheel. No issues with the hitch with excellent performance as expected.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Solid hitch has done a great job towing our 20,000 lb toy hauler for a about a year and 6,000+ miles. It has a pretty wide tolerance for getting hitched, and is smooth as butter both when towing and hooking/unhooking. A few minor issues: the plastic handle cracked and fell apart after about 2 months, but it's not really necessary, it just looks nicer with it on. The red/green indicator thing always pops out of place and has to be reset - I don't even bother looking at it anymore, I just do a pull test every time I hook up. Also, the center / core section has a label on it that says 20k lbs, instead of 27k - I called Reese and they were very helpful in validating that it was just an incorrect label and was truly the correct 27k rated center box (they even had me measure the steel plate to make sure it was to spec).

    The Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package part # RP30890 is an excellent option for a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500.

  • Can I Switch Legs On Reese Elite For Ford Puck System To Fit GM Factory Puck System
    We do have hitches that fit the GM factory puck package but the replacement legs part # RP30889 is not compatible with the head of your Reese Elite Series hitch part # 58292. The Reese Elite hitch is designed with legs to fit the Ford prep package or the Reese Elite Underbed Rail installation kit, but you already have a puck system.

  • Are the Fifth Wheel Rail Kits for Chevy and GM Trucks Different Based on Bed Length
    There are two reasons the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3700 only shows up for the 8 foot bed models of the 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with the factory rail kit. Biggest reason is because the rail kits between the short and long bed GM rail kits are different dimensions so the hitch won't physically fit. Also because for a short bed truck you'd want to use a slider hitch to have enough turning clearance like the # BWRVK3770 which does fit and would work well. If you have a...

  • Will Reese Elite 18K for Puck System Fit Puck System on 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali
    We do have 5th wheel hitches that are compatible with the puck system on your 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali but unfortunately at this time Reese only has legs for the Reese Elite 18K # RP30142 that are compatible with Ford puck systems. To replace the Elite I recommend the Reese M5 # RP30890 that fits with the puck system on your GMC Sierra. I recommend this because is similar to the Elite (which you like using).

  • Reese Hitch for 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed to Replace Elite Series
    The Replacement Legs for Reese Elite Series # RP58543 are simply replacement legs, so they won't fit your 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 (the Elite Series is only a fit for the Ford puck system). You can add a very good Reese hitch that fit the puck system of your truck with the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - 20,000 lbs # RP30890 or 27,000 lbs # RP30895. The M5 is an outstanding hitch because it has height settings that are adjustable from between 14 inches...

  • Recommended Solution to Help With Chucking While Towing 5th Wheel That Already Has FlexAir Pin Box
    First off, thank you for being a repeat etrailer.com customer! We definitely appreciate you coming back to us. With that said, I may have a solution for you, but air bags are not the answer for this since it's not your vehicle's suspension system that is causing this. Chucking and jarring while towing a 5th wheel trailer (or any trailer for that matter) is unavoidable because the trailer itself is not one piece with your vehicle. When your truck starts to move forward from a stop your trailer...
