This shipment came sparsely/poorly secured to it's pallet. the Box holding the Installation Kit and Base Rails was incomplete and missing the two rail sections. These rails are the beginning ingredient to installing the 5th wheel hitch to your vehicle. The box was closed and from all appearances was packed without them and shipped to me incomplete. This ongoing situation is further compounded by the horrible customer service response that is on it's second week of calamity. The first week was wasted by a customer representative known to me as Noah promising me that the missing rails would be shipped out UPS on Monday with a sincere apology and that I should receive them by Wednesday of the coming week. This action proved to be dully noted on the file but not performed or followed up by Noah. No sense of urgency from these people? When the promised delivery day of Wednesday passed I called Thursday to find out it was not even shipped yet(raising the question? When were they going to let me know?) After a totally illogical conversation with a young lady (who was loosing her patients for me) repeatedly explained that "etrailer" was waiting 5 days as company policy for the freight company to find the missing parts even though the box was not damaged or tampered with? I then asked to speak to a manager who assured me that she would ship the rails UPS and provide me with a tracking number going on day two and no tracking number, email or phone call from Jennifer? I'd stay away from this company and find one of the many other resources to buy your trailer needs. From all appearances they seem to perform well unless customer service has to get involved and then you are hung out to dry like me?

FYI: I have never complained online before this... but felt compelled hope this was helpfull!

I ordered this just a few days ago and haven't had a chance to install it, but my review isn't about the product. etrailer went above and beyond with my purchase. Their customer service is great and the communication throughout the entire process of confirming purchase to confirming delivery, is by far the best I have ever experienced with online ordering.
Once my order was received, I was notified via email, once it shipped, I was notified, and once it was delivered, I received an email from Etrailer to confirm delivery.
On the shipping spectrum, my order shipped extremely fast and was delivered 3 days ahead of what they projected. The tracking process was updated throughout the delivery, which showed me every step of my order, and that was very easy to track and once again, the best experience that I've ever had with online purchases. On a side note, this was my first time ordering from this company, and I am very impressed. The website is a little confusing at times...I almost ordered the wrong part because the notice that it didn't fit my vehicle didn't exactly stand out to me.
Still, they get 5 stars from me and I definitely recommend.

2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Installed under a B&W 18k slider. I installed through a drop in bed liner (cut out openings with reciprocating tool). The only advice I have to make install easier is to not have wheel well liners installed, horrible to put in, let alone take out and put back in. The rest of the install was pretty straight forward on a F250. This is my 2nd installation of these rails, I installed on my 2018 F250 as well as my current 2021.




by:
Ford F-250 Super Duty

These base rails have performed great with my 5th wheel hitch. Straight forward installation, fit my Ford F250 as advertised.




by:

Initial the set up was easy to install, except one bolt that they provide a special tool to use to install the bolt. Was a little tricky to get the nut to tighten down. Other than that all holes lined up and was a breeze to install. My biggest issue was that the front base rail bent after less than a year. The base rail actually pulled away from the bed of the truck and left 5/8-3/4 inch gap between the rail and the bed. The rail actually is now bowed in the center. I had Reese rails before in my other truck and they didn't bend at all.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The rails do have a limited lifetime warranty.

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

My new 2019 F350 did not have the factory fifth wheel prep so to make my Demco hitch work I ordered this custom rail kit and I am very happy with it. Install was easy and painless since the factory frame had hole right where they needed to be for these brackets. It is a robust set of rails and brackets and will meet my towing needs for sure.




by:

Wonderful hitch! My wife and I installed it ourselves, took a little longer than anticipated but the hitch is awesome!




by:

I could not find a pickup with the puck system so I went this route instead. No regrets that I installed rails and together with my B&W hitch, I am 100% satisfied.




by:

Would have given it a 5 but 1 blolt was missing. Good instructions , easy to install,everything lined up nice and we'll built.


Comments
I will make sure to have our customer service team reach out so we can have the missing hardware taken care of. The manufacturer prefers to have you use the hardware that comes with the brackets.

matched up well. I think 1/8" change in dimensions would have been a perfect fit. Watch the youtube videos of the install for your truck. It will take time and precision, but no rocket science.

Super easy installation with exact fit design. Very well made with heavy duty materials.

by:
2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Relatively simple to install. However, the U bolt installation method will not work on my 2019 F250, the frame rail is about 1/2 too tall for the U bolt to fit over. I had to use the drill and tap screw installation. Also, I was unable to install on the driver’s side as depicted in the instructions because the parking brake cable is mounted there. I instead mounted on the passenger side frame rail, on the outside, underneath the running board. After installation, no problems functioning with both the remote and iPhone app.




by:
2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Was surprised to see it delivered so quickly, instructions and video were excellent and made installation very easy. I will surely recommend your company in the future. Thank you and Hod bless,

Best fit, best towing, best installation kit I have ever used. Highly recommended!

  • Compatibility of Pullrite Fifth Wheel Hitch with B&W Industry Standard Mounting Rails
    If your Pullrite is the ISR (Industry Standard Rail) model, it would indeed be compatible with the # BWRVK2402 B&W fifth wheel rail/bracket kit. You can confirm this for yourself by measuring the front to back distance, center to center of the mounting tabs. This should be right at 22 inches. The center to center side to side spacing should be 29, 20-1/2 or 10 inches, as shown in the provided photo.

  • Can Truck Bed Liner Install with B and W Fifth Wheel Rail Kit
    To install the B and W Fifth Wheel Rail kit part # BWRVK2402 and the Patriot Slider hitch part # BWRVK3270 you would need to remove a portion of the bed liner so that the rails can attach directly to the truck bed. You would not be able to have a rubber mat between the rails and the truck bed either.

  • Best 5th Wheel HItch for 2021 F-350 Dually Without Prep Package
    Congratulations on the all-new rig. Sounds exciting. I will work from the assumption that when you say long bed, that you mean 8-foot bed. For a 5th wheel hitch the B&W # BWRVK3300 that you referred to is designed for the factory prep package. The best choice would be the B&W # BWRVK3255 5th Wheel Hitch with the # BWRVK2402 mounting rails kit for the 2021 F-350.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    I suggest you either have a slide type hitch or a rotating turret type pin box on your 5th wheel, then you can use a fixed typed hitch. One option works just as well as the other option. The big influence of one over the other is if you are buying items to match with already purchased items, i.e. someone has a high dollar hitch in a their trade-in long bed truck but gets a new tow vehicle with a short bed. They will frequently change out the pin box to match the fixed hitch. Others,...

  • Is a Universal Fifth Wheel Installation Kit Worl on my 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    The body on your 2019 Ford F-250 is in fact aluminum the frame however is still made from steel. With that said a universal installation kit is okay to use on it but is not something that we recommend using in any application really unless there is no other option. Since yours is already installed I wouldn't have it removed however, we always recommend using a custom rail kit for both gooseneck and fifth wheel installations.

  • Will Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Hitch Work on 2017 Ford F-350 Short Bed or is Sliding Hitch Needed
    I strongly recommend a sliding 5th wheel trailer hitch for your 2017 Ford F-350 short bed as opposed to the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System # AM3200. While technically you can use the Andersen, a sharp turn is likely to result in your Keystone Raptor crashing into the back of your cab. It is much safer to use a sliding hitch, and while it may cost a bit more now, it will be much less expensive than having to repair your F-350's cab as well as your Raptor from...

This works with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Flatbed Trucks, # BWGNRK1500.

    The biggest differences between the 2 Anderson 5th wheel hitches is that the Andersen Ultimate Connection # AM3200 we carry has a steel construction and connects to your truck using the standard 5th wheel base rails. The 3220 Anderson Ultimate Connection has an aluminum construction and connects to your truck by securing to a gooseneck hitch ball. We don't carry the aluminum option because from what we have found it doesn't seem to hold up under heavier 5th wheel trailers, but I do know...
