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.

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.

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.

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.

We have owned the 5th wheel hitch for a year now and absolutely love it! It has been everything we hoped it would be. Sturdy easy to use and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Excellent hitch! Very glad I bought it!



by:

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.

Droppedsides into pucks, bolted center support on and pinned 5th wheel plate. 35 minutes max. Went to geogia and pulled 12,600lb new camper home. No issues at all. Would recommend lube disc keeps grease off when you remove hitch for storage.



by:

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.



by:

Has been a great hitch with no issues and very easy to use. The single jaw gives me better confidence when the jaw is locked that it is truly secure. Recently returned from a 9000mi roundtrip from WA to FL with total confidence. Great product highly recommend and if needed will purchase again.



by:

Your company was great. Don't care for this hitch, although I have owned many hitches in 35 years of towing. Very finicky and some parts are flimsy. I will likely replace the hitch this year and will gladly order from you again

The hitch came in 3 separate packages, all in the same delivery. Each package came with parts documents, care and assembly instructions. I did the assembly alone. Assembly was fairly easy, just cumbersome due to weight. During assembly, I believe the instructions have the center bolt inserted from the outside; not possible to clear the leg frame so I had to finagle the nut while inserting the bolt from the inside. I initially assembled the hitch unattached to the truck bed. When complete, I could not get the pucks to align with holes in the bed. I loosened the legs, set in the bed and tightened the bolts, which then made for a perfect fit. I have my hitch set to the highest setting for ensured bed rail to camper clearance; might lower later on. The hitch is easy to use; no issues connecting or disconnect the camper. I did have to replace the fifth wheel to base hitch pin clips with shorter ones because when the camper tilted, the clips got bent (unknown to me, the clips went vertical and could not clear the tilt of the fifth wheel and base). Wasn't a big deal to me, but could present an issue if not recognized. It is possible for the pins to contact the base as well. I use a neoprene or plastic disc on the hitch so I don't have to grease the wheel; makes for a clean and easier removal /installation. But as you can see, there are gouges/scratches just from normal connecting and disconnecting. I remove the fifth wheel from the base when removing/installing hitch just to reduce weight. Even without the wheel, the base assembly is still heavy. Overall, I think this is a good hitch; with that being said, this is the only brand fifth wheel hitch I've ever used and this one here is the only brand fifth wheel hitch I've ever owned.

Talk about disappointment, ordered this in early October to replace a curt q20 slider hitch I had on a previous truck. It arrived well enough considering how heavy the parts are. There was no obvious signs of damage, install was relatively simple enough. Early November rolls around and we are going to be moving our 5th wheel, I go to hook up to measure clearances of bed rails etc. It turned into a multi-hour ordeal. Backing in following the directions allowing the pin to slide up to the hitch it binded in a spot where I was unable to release it(pictures attached), after spending quite a while raising all the weight of the truck moving backwards and forward with it partially latched trying to get it to move some way I was finally able to get it released by using a crow bar to push the jaw open and drive the truck out. So now I need to find out the problem I fully reset it back to its receiving position with the handle in the latched but not locked position. Try again, the exact same thing happens. So I took the head of to experiment and see if it will slide on to the king pin maybe there is another issue I'm not noticing, works well and fully seats with the green indicator but again doesn't release without using a crow bar on the jaws. Now mind you I fully lubed this as the instructions state, even using the needle grease gun attachment, so I didn't think that was the issue. Still decided more lubrication couldn't hurt the situation, I used dry lithium grease everywhere, moving every part that can move while doing it. Hooked it back to the truck, success, well partially. Got a full seat of the king pin with the handle in a very not latched position got it moved in to the correct area and after a few thumps it allowed me to seat the safety pin. Try and hook it up again, now the arm doesn't fully close when attached to the king pin. At this point we get it off again, having to use a crow bar, and notice the internal latch that locks the arm in the safe or unsafe position is lose and one of the springs had come off, thankfully it didn't get lost as its about 2in long and small. At this time its been almost 3 hours of frustration. I spend another hour getting the tiny spring reattached in what seems to be the correct position(unable to find a diagram of the internal springs online). Go to hook it up again, this time we get a full successful latch and the locking arm perfectly closes and allows the safety pin, but alas we are still unable to unlatch the 5th wheel without moving the jaw with a crowbar.

I have never had such frustration with something that's so critical to the ability of me to tow my 5th wheel. I am unsure if I can trust it to work correctly.



by:

Just received the 3 boxes for my hitch and the first thing I see when I open the box with the jaw head is that the plastic locked indicator is busted, also the box containing the legs is crushed/ re taped



by:

Received in good condition with all parts. Instructions best looked up on line. My legs were free of powder coat for bolts. Mine came with lynch pins and not cotter pins. Does take torque wrench of 250 ft/lbs to torque to recommended 220 ft/lbs but not too difficult . Got one at Harbor Freight. I noticed that an impact 15/16 socket 6 tooth was tighter fit on bolts than the 24 mm recommended. Of note it has a needle grease zerk under blue label on front and one at back which serves side to side center section bolts in addition to one on top of head. I put on highest setting and had 7” of bed rail clearance on my 2024 Duramax which was one of my major concerns since we boondock a lot. . I had 6” with a Reese 16k slider mounted on the middle setting on my 2016 Duramax with our Montana that has a Morryde pin box hitch. Nice to have a clean bed with hitch removed. It is heavy at about 150#. Remember to mount head section with tips of springs situated so they force head to flex towards rear of truck for hitching. Handle does go below bed rails when tilted. Over all very pleased so far



by:

Went together easy, no issues, functions exactly as it should, well built, no complaints. We pull a 45 ft 5th wheel TH. Would not hesitate to buy it again.



by:

Couldn’t be easier to use or more heavily built and secure. Only one issue. Though I didn’t have to change out bolts or use a tap and die set to put the base together, I would highly recommend having the correct tap and die available, just in case. From what I have read many people have had problems with these bolts/holes. I only had an issue with one, but it wasn’t fun. I don’t have a T and D available. Pretty sure it would have been a cinch if I had. ALSO, most people I know don’t have the correct type of torque wrench for the job. If you have to buy one it might be cheaper to have a trusted shop assemble the hitch. It’s pretty easy, but the wrench isn’t cheap, even if you buy an inexpensive (cheap) one. I rated 5 stars because I read all of the reviews and issues, bought with my eyes wide open, and was very happy to find that the bulk of the comparatively few negative reviews were either exaggerate, a QC issue that had been dealt with, or I just got plain lucky. I’ve had the hitch for 7months pull a 16,000 GVWR 5th wheel of my own and have pulled for friends.

  • Correct Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra 3500
    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. It has a wrap-around jaw design which will grip the kingpin tightly therefore reducing the amount of slop which attributes to a rough tow. It also has a very wide funnel which is going to make coupling the trailer much easier. The hitch simply drops into the pucks in the truck bed and then all you'll need to do is turn the handles to lock it in place.

  • Determining The Correct Hitch Height For A Reese M5 5th Wheel Hitch In A 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
    When measuring the pin box height you'll need to have the trailer level and the measure from the ground to the base of the king pin (pictured below). I recommend rechecking this measurement yourself since the dealership probably has zero clue what they're doing. You'll also want to get the measurement from the floor of your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500's bed. The trailer measurement minus the truck measurement will give you the height that your Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30890...

    There is an easy way to figure out how to determine what height setting a fifth wheel hitch such as the Reese M5 # RP30890 needs to be in your 2019 GMC Sierra 2500, just keep in mind you will need five to six inches of space from your Silverado's bed rails to your trailer as in the accompanying photo. To determine the height simply measure from the the bottom of your trailer's pin box to the ground; after that measure from the top of your Sierra's truck bed to the ground. The difference...
