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.

Great hitch! Went together as per the instructions, pulls our 20,000 lbs 5th wheel great. Love the positive "Green" when the pin is in place as well as the wrap around jaw, real selling points for me.

This would be a three but etrailer's customer service is excellent. Everyone I've dealt with has been exceptional. Reese needs to get their act together. Three month backorder (okay COVID-19 has everyone backed up). Finally get the order and the release handle grip is destroyed, just crumbled almost like it was cooked. I have to adjust the pucks, which is expected, but Reese installed the Carter pins, which are a [beast] to remove in order to adjust the puck, suggestion Reese just leave them out for the installer to install. The the final [blow] from Reese on top of their otherwise great paint job, the bolt holes for the assembly are filled with paint, Reese howabout running a thread chase through these threads so the installer doesn't risk cross threading the bolt, it's just the small things that would make an otherwise outstanding hitch better.

Thanks for your words. Customer Service will reach out to you about the broken handle.

We are so very pleased with our 27K hitch! The order process was easy and delivery was very fast. We have used a Reese hitch for years now. We just upgraded our fifth wheel RV and it wieghs in at 16K our old hitch was an 18K hitch so we were within 2K of max weight. We felt that that was too close so we went big, it feels (pulls) better and I feel more safe knowing that we have plenty of hitch. Thank you for such great products. Jason and Patricia

I had always been a BIG B&W fan, but having heard about this hitch and it being cheaper, with a higher rating.... I decided to give it a try. Im really glad I did, as it takes up far less space in the bed than my old B&W did. I did have an issue where one leg's welded, threaded insert was cock-eyed and the bolt didnt thread in. etrailer, being the wonderful specialists they are, sent me a new leg kit ASAP. My only issue thus far with the hitch is the rubber handle grip cracked and split, after sitting in my shop all winter in the cold. Not sure if thats normal, but it doesnt bother me enough that I remember it even 5 mins after using the 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.

We have not been able to use the hitch yet but we are looking forward to it. The Reese M5 27k hitch came in just a couple of days after ordering it. Having read some other reviews we knew what tools we would need. FYI you need a 200 lb torque wrench. I guess it took us about an hour to get it put together and in our truck. It looks great!

This is still a great product after a year. We have not had one issue with the hitch. I recommend it highly!

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).

Seems like a good hitch. Install wasn't terrible except getting the big cotter pins out to adjust the pucks. I'll update after I pull for a bit.

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

Thanks again.

220 LBS of torque not everyone has that size wrench available. Needed a tap to clean threads not easy to find and $40 bucks. Asked Reese has to disassemble center so the socket would sit straight on bolt head. Other than that a very nice hitch easy connect

hitch works well, should have adjusted to highest level as when exiting a steep lot with a sharp turn i "kissed" the side rail of my truck with my 5th wheel. i'm not sure i like the new single jaw vs the old style though. aslo my lock indicator is already broken but just need to visually verify the lock.

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. Additionally, the Customer Service provided by etrailer is exceptional. I continue to order parts from etrailer and are more than pleased. I highly recommend etrailer!

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



- RP30922

This is a great hitch. Hooking up is so much easier as you don't have to get out and open the jaws with this hitch. etrailer was also great to work with and shipped the hitch in no time.

It looks great, and is heavy duty, very easy to use with the puck system. My only gripe is when unhooking, I have to have someone hold the handle back in the full open position, otherwise it will not release.

  • Hitch Cover Recommendation for a Reese M5 27k Hitch
    For a fifth-wheel hitch cover to fit your Reese 27K 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30922, I recommend the Classic Accessories 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch cover, part # CA80116, which is Black.
