The bed rail kit shipped and arrived promptly. I had heard that installation on 5 1/2' boxes is difficult and that proved to be very true. That's not the fault of the product, but the instructions were vague enough and in one instance lacking in proper direction which caused two calls in order to get clarification. The response was quick and helpful. All in all, I got what I wanted when I wanted it without major surprises. Looks like a winner. 223523

Box arrived today .... (Est. was 7-23 - 7-28) can't complain about that part... I did have to call etrailer, because the box arrived damaged and partly opened. However, they were very helpful in making sure everything ordered was in the box.... Everything did arrive intact.... Will order from again if need anything.... 213908

Ordered this product for my 2014 Ram 1500 Quad Cab Express on 12/17/14 at about 8 PM PST. To my surprise it shipped that very same night and i received it on 12/22/14. The truck specific mounts are very beefy and fit perfectly. My only complaint is that when i took the mounts out of the box, the paint was chipping off the edges of one of them. It was coming off in large pieces all the way around the mount. I spent most of today 12/28/14 installing it myself. Got the mounts all in and all the holes drilled for the rails and then removed the rails for spray in bedliner install tomorrow. Once that is done i will re-install the rails and put my truck back together. I had to remove the splash guards from the rear fender wells and drop the spare tire. I also had to re-route one wire and modify the ring on the ground wire to still fit on the mounting bolt that is right next to the drivers side rear mount. 167158

Did you need to drill holes for mounting brackets to the frame or were there mounting holes in the frame already?

Chris, There were no holes, I had to drill the frame. I did alot of looking around before i purchased these and i could not find a no-drill installation kit. I also could not find a cheaper price anywhere.

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel Installation Kit?


  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 1500 with RamBox
  • I do have a solution for you, however the sliding 5th-wheel hitches we have available are not recommended for use on a 2017 Ram 1500 that has the Rambox like yours. The issue is that the Rambox feature can interfere with a sliding hitch, which is what is typically needed on short bed trucks in order to provide proper clearance during sharp turns. To tow a 5th-wheel trailer with your Ram 1500, I recommend going with a fixed 5th wheel hitch like the Reese Select Plus # RP30081 along with...

  • Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for a 2003 Ram 2500 and a Husky Slider 5th Wheel Hitch
  • We do have a semi-custom base rail installation kit for your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed, however, the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Install Kit, # RP30035-023, that you referenced will not fit in your truck. This kit was designed for newer model Ram 1500 trucks. Instead, you will want to install the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Install Kit, # RP30035-023, if your truck has overload springs, or # RP30035-186 if your truck does not have the overload springs. The base rails that...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with 6 Ft Bed
  • When it comes to a kit to install your Reese 5th wheel on your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with 6 ft bed, I recommend the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP50142-58. A custom kit is going to reduce the amount of drilling and really cuts down the installation time. Both kits include all parts needed for installation; base rails, brackets, and hardware. I have attached the installation instructions for both kits.

  • Can a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 5-1/2 ft Bed Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • You are going to first need to determine the weight of the trailer you plan to tow as it is ready to tow and then compare that to the towing capacities for your truck that are listed in it's owners manual. Since you have a 5-1/2 foot bed 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 you are going to have to replace the pin box of the trailer with a Sidewinder to give you the needed clearance to make tight turns. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order...

  • Will a Curt R5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit in a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You can use the Curt slider 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16516 in a 2013 Dodge Ram with the 5-1/2 foot bed. However, you will have to keep in locked in the tow position and then use a Sidewinder on the trailer to provide 22 inches of additional extension in order to make tight turns. In order to determine if there is a Sidewinder that will fit, you will need to look at the pin box manufacturer and model number on the pin box itself. Then you can look up the pin box information in our...

  • All of the 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kits for your 2014 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 foot bed will require some frame drilling. You can use # RP30035-386 for your truck. I have linked the instructions to the right for you. You mentioned having a slider hitch but a slider will not allow you to make 90 degree turns without hitting the truck cab and trailer together. Also, you will not be able to slide the hitch back with the trailer connected without removing the tailgate. You will have...

After speaking with representatives of Reese who are currently visiting us here at etrailer, I recommend the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail Installation Kit # RP30035-386 as it features a mounting kit made specifically for your truck.

  • Can a 5th Wheel Hitch be Installed in a 2014 Dodge Ram with Rambox
  • The issue with the Rambox is that the manufacturers of hitches and installation kits have not tested for fit on models with the Rambox. The issue is the bed is more narrow on models that have the Rambox feature. We have heard customers who have installed 5th wheel hitches in Rambox models. But they have to use Sidewinder replacement pin boxes to move the trailer pivot point back so as not to hit the stock pin box against the bed sides. I have linked the Sidewinder information page to...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit for 2014 Ram 1500 5 Foot 7 Inch Bed w/ Gas Engine
  • If your truck does not have the Rambox, and is NOT equipped with the optional air suspension and since the truck doesn't have the Eco Diesel engine, you can use the # RP30035-386 install kit. There is not a rail kit available for vehicles equipped with the air suspension. Since your truck has the 5 foot 7 inch bed, the sliding hitch included with your 5th wheel won't provide enough clearance for making turns. As things stand now, the front corners of the trailer loft will probably strike...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer be Towed with a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with 5 Foot 7 Inch Bed
  • Towing a fifth-wheel trailer with a 2010 Dodge Ram Pickup with 5 foot 7 inch bed is definitely possible. Beds shorter than 6 feet require the addition of a Sidewinder replacement pin box for the fifth-wheel trailer you will be towing. To select the correct Sidewinder pin box, see link, you will need to determine the manufacturer and model number of the pin box on your trailer. Once you have selected a trailer and Sidewinder, you will need to install a stationary 5th wheel hitch in the...

Due to the short bed on your Ram, there's only a couple of ways to successfully tow a fifth wheel trailer without having the front of the trailer loft strike the rear of the cab during turns. One would be to use a Sidewinder extended pin box. The Sidewinder relocates the pivot point from...

  • With the 5.6 foot bed, a sliding hitch will not provide enough clearance between the trailer loft and the rear of your cab for your to make sharp turns. You will need to use a standard, non-sliding hitch in conjunction with a Sidewinder replacement pin box installed on your fifth wheel. The non-sliding version of the Reese Dual-Jaw 16K fifth wheel hitch, part # RP30047 would be a great choice for you, as long as the fully loaded and ready to tow weight of your fifth wheel does not exceed...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Installation Kit And Sidewinder For 2015 Ram 1500 With 5-1/2 Ft Bed

Installation of this kit takes half the time of a semi-custom kit like part # RP30035-386. For a premium Sidewinder that will work on your trailer I recommend the 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin, part # RP61422.
