Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Semi-Custom - RP30035-522 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rails and the Installation Kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches on the Dodge Ram and Ram trucks. Now this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 2014 and newer Dodge Ram and Ram 2500 series trucks without the factory rail kit. And on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application.Now these are semi-custom brackets that'll mount beneath your truck bed. They provide the attachment points for the fifth wheel base rails. The base rails, they're ten bolt base rails, they'll sit in the truck bed. They provide the necessary attachment points for the fifth wheel trailer hitches.

Now these rails are compatible with the Curt, the Draw-Tite, the Hidden Hitch, the Husky, the Reese and Valley brands and most standard fifth wheel hitches. They will not fit the Reese elite series or the Valley VS hitches.If you notice all the parts are a sturdy steel construction, has a nice black powder coat finish on it to help resist corrosion. And the kit will include everything shown here on the table, includes the two base rails, the semi-custom brackets, all the hardware needed to install everything, and even a nice set of detailed instructions that'll describe how to install everything.But that should do it on the review for the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rails and the Installation Kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches on the Dodge Ram and Ram trucks.

  • Correct Reese 5th Wheel Install Kit for 2019 Ram 2500 with Overload Springs
    The correct Reese Inboard 5th Wheel Install Kit for a 2019 Ram 2500 is part # RP30035-522. This is a semi-custom kit which is designed for models with overload springs. The entire set of brackets cannot be obtained separately so you will need to purchase the entire kit.

  • Installation of Reese Semi-Custom 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2019 Ram 2500
    The Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - Ram # RP30035-522 is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ram 2500. I've attached the installation instructions for you of both the rails and the Ram adapter kit # RP58522 which is included in the kit.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Install Kit for a 2015 Ram 2500
    Yes, the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit part # RP30035-522 will fit your 2015 Ram 2500 with coil spring rear suspension as long as you do not have the RamBox but this is only a semi custom kit which means there will still be drilling into the frame rails required. For a fully custom option that will not require any drilling into the frame rails I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit part # RP50054-58. I have attached an install video on the custom...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Mounting Rails for Older Draw-Tite Hitch on 2019 Ram 2500
    If your 2019 Ram 2500 truck has the tow/prep package with the pucks in the bed, you could install your older industry-standard rail compatible Draw-Tite 16K slider using the # RP30154. The adapter would install into the pucks and provide industry standard bed rails compatible with your hitch. If you don't have the puck system, I'd recommend the Reese # RP30035-522 bracket/rail kit you'd looked at. The kit is compatible with vehicles equipped with overload springs and the factory air suspension,...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed without OEM Rail Kit
    The semi-custom fifth wheel rail kits like the Reese part # RP30035-522 do require frame drilling since the L-brackets need to attach to the frame of the truck where there aren't holes currently. For a fully custom fifth wheel rail kit that fits your truck you'd instead want the Reese part # RP50054-58 which does not require drilling into the truck frame of your 2019 Ram 2500. I attached an install video for this on a similar 2020 Ram 2500 for you to check out as well.

  • What Size Bolts Do I Need For My 5th Wheel Mounting Kit
    From the pictures you sent, it appears that your mounting holes just need to be cleaned. You need something like the Nylon Tube Brush - 3/8", part # 814113. Once the mounting holes have been cleaned, you should be able to use the 12mm bolts. i have included a product description link and a video review link below.

  • How to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 that has RamBox
    You can absolutely haul a 5th wheel trailer with a truck that has the RamBox like your 2014 Ram 2500. However, there is only one method that will allow for this and the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System part # AM3200 is not it. This option would almost certainly cause the trailer to come into contact with the bedsides. Instead, you are going to have to use a rotating pin box with fixed 5th wheel hitch like you mentioned. In order to choose the correct rotating...

  • Semi-Custom and Custom Fifth Wheel Rail Kits that Fit 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    I have a similar solution for you but universal fifth wheel rail kits like the Curt # C16200 are not a fit for your truck. Instead you'd need a semi-custom fit kit part # RP30035-522 which has brackets that will fit your trucks frame. It still uses two L-brackets like a universal kit though. If you wanted to go with a full custom kit that wouldn't require any frame drilling you'd want instead the Reese kit part # RP50054-58.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With The Reese Revolution And A 2020 Ram 2500 With RamBoxes
    Since your Reese Revolution is basically the same thing as the Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin with Rotating Turret # RP34FR you can use any 5th wheel hitch that is compatible with a rotating pin box, and you'll be good to go. I recommend taking a look at the: -Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928 with the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit # RP30035-522 if you do not have the factory prep package. If you have the factory prep package, you'll need the: -Reese...

  • Can Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Hitch Be Used On 2021 Ram 2500?
    There are several 5th wheel hitches that will fit nicely onto your 2021 Ram 2500, however, the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel unfortunately does not have a way to pair up to your vehicle. Reese has designed the Elite hitches to work with Ford puck system or custom-fit kits which are not available for your truck. I'm sure this isn't the answer you were looking for, but I will leave you with some recommendations in case you decide to sell your current 5th wheel and look into a new 5th wheel...

  • Will the Curt A20 Slider 5th Wheel Hitch w/Universal Install Kit Fit a 2014 Ram 2500
    The Curt A20 5th wheel trailer hitch slider # C16541 will fit your 2014 Ram 2500 but not the universal installation kit. The design of the truck requires some special frame brackets so you can use semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-522 for the most cost effective solution. You might also want to install a 7-Way connector in the truck bed using # 50-97-410. this will make hooking up the trailer easier without the need for an extension.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Mounting Rail Recommendations for 2021 Ram 2500
    If you're wanting the hitch mounting system to attach under the truck bed so that the bed is completely clear once the hitch is removed, you'll want to use the B&W Companion sliding hitch, part # BWRVK3400-5W. The hitch installs into the B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch, part # BWGNRK1320-5W. If you were wanting to use an above bed rail mounted hitch like the Reese # RP30051 you'd looked at, you'd need a bracket/rail kit like # RP30035-522.

  • Above Bed Rail Kit to Install Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch in 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    The universal mounting kit included with the Curt # C16636 Q20 won't work with a 2018 Ram 2500. A better option would be to purchase the hitch and install kit separately. The hitch by itself is part # C16536. The appropriate Curt install kit for your truck is # C16427-204, but the Reese equivalent, part # RP30035-522 is considerably less expensive. It's perfectly acceptable to use one manufacturer's hitch with the install kit from another as long as industry standard rails are used, which...
