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

Yes, if you:

  • Like being able to back-up to your king pin and hook up without having to get out to open and close the jaws each time
  • Tow with a dually truck or aren't super tall and like having a longer handle to make it easier to throw open the jaws
  • Have a pin box that doesn't extend down very far and need a hitch that sits almost even with your bed rails

No, if you:

  • Don't want to do the extra work needed to clear out paint in bolt holes and threads
  • Use a tonneau cover often and don't want to have to take out the hitch to close it
  • Prefer getting the most overbuilt hitch available, even if it's more than you really need

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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (319 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty 5th-wheel hitch has a 1-piece, wraparound jaw and easy-to-see lock indicator for maximum safety and security. Fully articulating head with large landing area and kingpin target make hookup a snap.


Tried to install this on a 2001 Chevy Silverado 3500, dual rear wheel, long bed, 4x4, diesel engine truck. The clamp style mounting simply does not work. The ONLY way I can see this working is by drilling added holes in the frame of the truck at the front end of the side plates. This is because of a bend in the frame at the clamp location. Also at this location the frame is boxed in and any bolt holes will be hidden. Bolts would have to fished in with bolt wires.

I see that you are stuck on some parts of this installation. I have gotten in contact with one of our technicians and they had mentioned that you should be able to find what you need in the instructions on page 5. https:www.reeseprod.comproduct-assetsinstallN30926.pdf

Just received yesterday, will be having it installed on Monday and will be pulling my new camper home next Saturday. Will update afterwards with pics

Still works good, but every once in a while it dosent want to latch around the kingpin.
Jeff - 10/09/2022


Great quality, worked perfect and easy to use. I was so happy with it that I transferred it to my new vehicle. I would recommend this to a friend.


Easy install, visual confirmation pin is locked into 5th Wheel, and no more chucking when pulling trailer.


I love it. It’s very easy for me to setup. The only issue i had was rge breakout away cable snapped in have and i was not able to find a replacement. I had a friend who was able to make me another one.


I had to return this hitch as it was unusable due to manufacturing defects. etrailer honored the return and refunded me completely.


Great product, shipped in really good time, etrailer was excellent in communication, only small problem was package was damaged in transit, and my item had some pretty bad scratches on it. But when I notified etrailer of this they gave me a choice of shipping it back in exchange for a new one or giving me a nice credit back if I could live with the scratches. I choose the latter and I thought it was great that they gave me the choice.


Loved the product, hated the installation instructions


I've only just got it installed and as of yet have not tested it under load. Hope to pick-up and tow my RV back home this weekend. I will update My review when I return.


Great hitch. Everything showed up undamaged easy to setup


So far it has worked flawlessly,,,


Got expert advice from David B Everything arrived and put on today. Worked beautifully


Exactly what I ordered with a perfect fit. [Retailer] wanted to charge me $600 more.


one great hitch!



Great hitch. Easy to use and pulls my 40ft rig like a champion!


2 of the 3 boxes arived the day before it was scheduled to arrive. The 3rd box arrived the next day as scheduled. The qr code on the head did not work, it took me to a 404 error page on the Reese site.


Always polite and know exactly what you need for your application. Tim was a pleasure to work with.



Thank you so much



This product has worked out fabulous customer service from each other was exceptional

See what our Experts say about this Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • Benefits of Fifth Wheel Hitch with 4 Way Pivoting Head vs. 2 Way Head
    The answer to your question will depend on what kind of surfaces your tow vehicle will be parked on when you hitch/unhitch the trailer. If you are going to find yourself pretty consistently on level, even pavement, then a fifth wheel hitch whose head pivots forward and back will work fine for you. On the other hand, if you will hitch and unhitch on uneven ground on a regular basis, you will thank yourself for going with a hitch that has the 4 way pivoting head, like the Reese 5th Wheel...

  • Will Reese 5th Wheel Hitches Fit in RBW Rails
    You will need to check the on center distance between the attachment points between the legs on your hitch to determine if the Reese 16K hitch will fit in the rails for your RBW hitch. If the attachment points in your rails are 20-15/16 inches apart then, you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 16,000 lbs, item # RP30047. I would recommend upgrading to the Select Plus 18K Fifth Wheel Hitch, item # RP30928, which has been recently upgraded to 20K. This hitch will give you the added...

  • How to Measure Installation Height for a 5th Wheel Hitch on a Custom Made Bed
    To measure the height that the fifth wheel head will need to be, on your custom made bed, you will need to park the vehicle and trailer on a fairly level surface and do some measuring. Back your vehicle under the fifth-wheel trailer stopping when the center of the king pin is directly above the center of the fifth-wheel attachment jaws. Measure from the top of the bed on the truck to the base of the pin box on the trailer. This will give you the measurement needed to select a mounting...

  • Will an 20k Reese 5th Wheel Hitch Fit the Same Rails as a Reese 15k 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    As long as your current 15k Reese 5th wheel hitch was installed with Reese rails, the 20k Reese 5th Wheel, # RP30928, will fit the same rails.

  • How to Adjust Height of Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The head portion of the Reese 18K Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch is height adjustable from 14 to 18 inches above the floor of the truck bed. To raise the head, remove the bolts that attach it to the support legs of the hitch, and reattach using the upper holes. For safety, you will need at least 6 inches of clearance between the top of the truck side rails and the bottom of the trailer loft. I have included a link to the installation details, in case you no longer have them.

  • Possible Causes For 5th Wheel Trailer Chucking and Movement During Starts and Stops
    It sounds like there is one of two possible issues or a combination of issues. First, make sure that you are not high hitched. When connecting the king pin to the hitch, first make sure the head of the hitch is tilted towards the trailer. Then, make sure the bottom of the pin box (not the kingpin) on the trailer is 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the hitch skid plate. The other issue could be that if your king pin of your PS30119 is worn significantly enough, there will be too much play and the...

  • Will a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Husky Above the Bed Rails
    A Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch like # RP30928, will fit in Curt, Valley/Husky, Draw-Tite, Hidden-Hitch and Reese base rails, so there should not be a fit issue. To make sure, there are some measurements you can take of the rails themselves to make sure the 2 are compatible. First, each rail will have 3 sets of slots on it where the hitch mounts. The outside set of slots is 29 inches apart on center. The middle set is about 20-1/2 inches apart on center. The inside set is 10 inches apart...

  • Will a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit In Place of a Reese 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    The Reese 20K hitch, # RP30928, will fit in the same rails and you will not need to upgrade them for the heavier trailer you plan to tow. The rails in this case have the same weight carrying capacity as your truck. Make sure that you stay within the towing capacities of your truck. The Reese 20K hitch has a gross trailer weight capacity of 20,000 pounds and a pin weight capacity of 5,000 pounds.

  • What are the Pin Hole Dimensions on the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928
    The mounting pin holes on the Reese Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30928, measure front to back 21-15/16 inches center to center and side to side 20-5/8 inches center to center. This hitch is designed to fit all standard base rails. If you determine that this hitch will not fit your rails, then you will want to choose a hitch based on the brand of your base rails. If you can tell me the manufacturer of your rails, then I can make a hitch recommendation for you.

  • Installation of 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch # RP30928 Fit on A 2003 Ford F-250/350 Super Duty Truck
    The head unit on the Reese M5 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch, part # RP30928, can be removed from the head support of the hitch by removing one large pivot pin held in place by a large cotter pin. This will make it easier for one person to remove the hitch from the vehicle. Our description says two pins and clips, but it is only one on the 20K hitch. I am going to have them update that information. The rubber bumpers included with the # RP30928 hitch are designed to prevent and/or limit contact...

  • A 5th Wheel Trailer Needs to be Towed Level by Adjusting the Kingpin and/or the 5th Wheel Hitch
    What you will do is park the truck and trailer on level ground. Using the landing gear/jacks on the 5th wheel to make it level, then measure from the ground to the bottom of the pin box skid plate, not the king pin, and record the measurement. Next measure from the ground to the top of the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch and record it. Adjust either the height of the 5th wheel head or the king pin on the trailer or both to get the measurements as close to the same as you can. If you...

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
    To answer the last question first the key is to check the towing capacity of each truck you are interested in and make sure they are rated for the weight of the trailer when it is loaded and ready to tow. A 1 ton of any make should have no trouble towing the average 5th wheel trailer but just check the towing capacities to be certain. I do recommend a diesel since they are great for towing and last a long time, and a truck with an Allison transmission which is a good towing tranny. Changing...

Basically you will need to check the tightness of the bolts every thousand miles and torque to spec.

    A fifth wheel king pin is a standard size, there should be no need to adjust for the width of the pin. I spoke with my contact at Reese, and we agreed that you should check to make sure you are not high hitching the fifth wheel. As you are backing the truck toward the fifth wheel, make sure that the bottom plate of the fifth wheel pin box is about 1/2 to 1 inch LOWER than the skid plate of the fifth wheel hitch. As you ease the hitch back into the king pin, the skid plate will actually...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch When Double Jaw Wrapped Around King Pin What is the Maximum Allowable Gap
    I have confirmed with my contacts at Reese and the double jaws that secure the kingpin in-place on the Pro-Series PS30119 are elliptical in shape. Due to this elliptical shape the jaws will not completely close around the pin when hooked up to the trailer and a small gap is common. A gap of approximately 1/8 of an inch is well within in tolerance limits. Unfortunately my contact could not supply any additional gap measurements that indicate if the hitch was out of tolerance.

    With the truck and trailer parked as level and straight as can be make sure that the landing gear on the trailer is down so it is supporting but not lifting up the trailer. The wheels on the trailer should be chocked as well so it cannot roll forward or backward. Then you will need to pull the handle on the 5th wheel hitch # RP30928 to the unlocked position to open the jaws. With the trailer supporting itself and the jaws unlocked you will pull the truck away. If the jaws will not open...

  • How to Determine if I Can Make a 90 Degree Turn with a 5th Wheel Trailer and a Dodge Ram Mega Cab
    I know turning clearance can be a problem with the Megacab models of the Ram trucks. We do not carry any automatic sliding hitches at this time, only manual slide hitches, but we often find that sliding fifth wheel hitches do not always cut it when it comes to the Ram trucks with the Megacab due to the bed and cab size. Typically, a Sidewinder pin box and a fixed fifth wheel hitch is required to safely make a 90 degree turn with these trucks, especially if the trailer does not have the...

  • Truck Option and Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Towing Long Trailer
    Are you talking about a hitch or a truck? For a trailer that long you will want to go with a 1 ton long bed truck to ensure you have the towing capacity for such a heavy trailer. You will also want to go with a long bed truck so that you have enough clearance to make tight turns without having to use a slider hitch. For better turning characteristics for the truck I would recommend a extended cab or regular cab over a 4 door truck as that will shorten the wheelbase which will allow the...

  • How to Determine if a Dodge Ram 1500 Could Tow a 34 ft Flagstaff Trailer
    The final answer on whether or not your truck can tow your trailer is dependent on the towing capacity of the truck (in the owners manual), and the loaded weight of the trailer as it is ready to tow. Since I do not know the year of your truck I couldn't get any type of tow capacity range for it, and since I do not know the specific model of your trailer I couldn't find a dry weight of it either. From similar questions we have found that the most your truck can tow typically is around...

I would not select a 1/2 ton truck to tow this trailer. The best trucks to tow 5th wheel trailers are 1-ton (3500/350 series) with long beds and diesel motors but gas would be fine too. Trucks with 2-wheel drive actually have higher towing capacities than 4-wheel drive models. So if you are choosing between the F-250 and a 1500 Ram, the...
