Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Universal - RP30035 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RP30035. This is the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. It is going to be a 10 bolt design. The base rails are going to provide necessary attachment points for your 5th wheel trailer hitch. The universal brackets are designed so that they fit most applications, and then the adapter brackets can be used to ease installation on certain vehicles. The kit's going to include both rails, four brackets, two larger ones with more mounting options, and then the two smaller ones, and it's going to include all the hardware that you need, all the instructions, and the fish wire that you just thread onto the end of the bolt, and you can bring it through the appropriate hole as needed. It makes it a little bit easier to get the bolts in the right place. Some compatible hitches are going to be Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky.

This does work with RBW Li'l Rocker Hitch Fifth Wheel Hitch. It will not fit the Reese Elite Series Signature Series or Valley UBS hitches. It's made from a nice solid steel construction with a nice black powder coated finish on it, so it is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP30035. This is the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. .

Service was great and friendly. Price was very competitive. However, product information should have advised for special application for my 03 Dodge 3500, rear rail mounting brackets. No big deal, though I figured it out. Reese instructions could more detailed. I installed the hitch myself. All is good. Etrailer, will get more business from me. 156117

Best value for the money! I have used this hitch for a season now and I must say, it's worked out great. I use a Teflon plate with it and this hitch doesn't have much play in it going down the road. I have not had any issues with it sliding when locked. 606894

I'm satisfied with the hitch I bought, I liked the fact that I could type in my truck make and model to find out what hitch I needed.( I have a short bed) It brought up several for me to chose from and in different prices ranges that I could afford.. The product was shipped fast also. Thanks etrailer! 30248

The product was exactly what I order, and showed up at my house way quicker than what I thought it would. The instructions were very self explanatory the hardware and mounting brackets were all together. That makes it nice for instillation purposes. Thanks again!! 308567

This hitch has a feature or two we didn't even expect. It was an easy install and is performing great. Plenty of maneuverability and rock stable. etrailer's service was incredible and stayed on top of the delivery until we got it. We thought they went the second mile to make sure we got our hitch. 707161

Very easy to install with a little preparation before you start. I instructions are pretty clear. It took me and my son about 2 1/2 hours to install. I had one in my old f150 and installed the rail kit in my 03 f150. Very happy with the kit. 704131

Nice product very strong built installation was a little tough because having to cut bedliner. 610159



- RP30035
by:

The product was as good as the last two I have installed in my pickups. The removable gooseneck plate solves other use of bed problems, and give an opportunity to use both theFifth wheel and goose. The only problem I can see is if a slide in camper were used, there would need to be front and rear spacers. I have also used the rails as attachments points for a removable bed crane and a removable in bed winch. Sorry, no pics at this time 602825

Package was short a couple of lock washers but otherwise a very well presented kit. Installation went well although the drivers side of my Ford super duty was a pain where the fuel tank is right up against the frame. I took my time since the truck was not on a lift and working on the floor is not the best. All ended well. 591576

I've had this system installed in my 1996 Ford F150 for a year now. I did the installation myself and found it to be relatively easy. I had to remove the rear tires to give better access to the frame, but after I did that drilling the needed holes and bolting in the brackets was straight foward. I use these rails with a gooseneck plate and have had no trouble pulling anything yet. 568266

These heavy mounts came with all the hardware and instructions for ford gm and dodge trucks. I installed them in a couple hours. More noteworthy though, was they arrived in a heavy duty box and were firmly fixed inside the box to keep them from moving around during shipping which was free. Any heavy parts I get from retailer arrive in a heavy duty mil spec container that actually protects the items I have purchased. Etrailer also follows up with you after your product is delivered to make sure you got what you ordered in new shape. 502545

I installed this kit in my 2006 Silverado 2500HD to hold a Reese 16k sliding hitch. The kit is very well built and had more parts than required to complete the installation. Once installed, works great and am very pleased! The work itself is cumbersome and a couple things to be aware of. First, I squared and centered the rails as required. Before I drilled in the bed, I set the hitch in the rails and they moved slightly and had to recenter. This only tops a few minutes but I recommend setting the hitch in the rails before drilling. Second, the alignment for the front chassis brackets was challenging. You have to drill the bottom two bolt holes to ensure you can get a wrench in the nuts as the frame is enclosed there and reaching around the tank and brake lines. The instructions were not specific as to which holes to drill. 489582

It has worked like it should but it was up to the driver to make it happen. Installing it was a bit hard, the truck did not like drilling into it. Broke two 1/2 inch drill bits 477412


Comments

Thanks for the follow up Andrew. I did want to let you know that for many recent production vehicles there are custom fit vehicle fit kits that utilize the trucks existing frame holes for installation. Therefore reducing the amount of drilling that is needed. Here is a link to our fit guide that you can use to determine the correct fit kit for your truck.

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


  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 With 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The fifth wheel hitch I strongly recommend for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3670. The Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available. It features dual jaws which are a full 1" thick to provide complete contact with your king pin so you can have faith that your connection is completely secure. I've added a picture of the jaws so you can see for yourself how impressive they are. The Companion is also...

  • Fit of Reese 20K Select Plus Hitch RP30081 in 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The Reese 20K Select Plus 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30081 is designed to fit into industry-standard above-the-bed base rails like those in custom rail kit # RP50066-58 and universal-fit kit # RP30035. These kits differ in their price and overall installation time (the custom kit costing more and taking less time) but they both use the same industry standard above-bed rails. Any brand of standard hitch will fit into these base rail kits. For a Sierra 3500 with the factory under-bed...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Brackets for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The 5th wheel brackets I recommend for your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty are the Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets # RP50074 that also are available in the full kit # RP50074-58. These will not require extra drilling into your frame for installation. If you want the universal fit brackets you can use the Universal kit # RP30035 or just brackets # RP30439. If you use the brackets only with either kit, you will still want to use new hardware for the rails # RP58430.

  • B&W 5th Wheel Base Rail Custom Brackets Only for 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2500 can be split up between the brackets and the rails. The B&W Custom Mounting Brackets for Patriot 5th Wheel Above Bed Base Rails # BWRVR2500 are available separately from the base rails # BWRVR3210. You will want to use only custom brackets and rails from the same manufacturer to confirm fit, so if you don't know the manufacturer, then I recommend purchasing the complete kit to ensure they will fit...

  • So I do have some good news. The Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP30035 that you referenced is not compatible with your 2015 Ford F-150 as is. An extra bracket would be needed for the installation which you can see in the Kit # RP30035-31 on our site. In comparing both part numbers, if the extra bracket in the second kit looks like what you have on your F-150 then the dealership did the right thing.

Instead you would want the part # RP30035 which is a fit for your truck and would clear the fuel tanks and lines. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

I have linked the instructions for the installation kit for you. If you wanted to go with a custom fit installation kit use # RP50064-58. The hitch will also fit these rails and custom kits require much less drilling compared to the universal kit and they install faster as well. I have linked a video showing installation of the custom kit for you.

  • No-Drill 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Long Bed
  • The easiest 5th wheel base rail installation will be with a custom-fit kit. For your 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 long bed we offer the Husky kit # HT31404-686 which does still require some frame drilling for installation but less than universal kits like # RP30035. We do offer other kits that do not require any frame drilling. These are the B&W Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1394-5W that works with their Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. This set-up gives you both goose neck and...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2016 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • It looks like your HiJacker fits in industry standard above the bed rails. There are a couple of installation kits you could use for your 2016 Ram 1500 with a 5-1/2 foot bed (if it is a crew cab and does not have air suspension or the EcoDiesel motor). You can use installation kit # RP30035 with special brackets # RP58523. With such a short bed a slider hitch is not going to offer enough travel to make 90 degree turns without interference between the truck and trailer. The tailgate might...

  • Proper Position of 5th Wheel King Pin In Relation to Rear Axle of Chevy Silverado
  • With any truck, the fifth wheel trailer's king pin should be positioned directly above or just slightly ahead of the rear axle centerline. The exact placement will depend on which installation kit you are using. If you were to place the king pin behind the axle, it can potentially lighten the load on the front axle to the point of reducing the steering and braking response when towing. For example, if you have the Reese Universal Rails # RP30035, it states that the king pin should be...

  • Where Do Fifth Wheel Rails Install in the Bed of 2011 Ford F-350
  • For Reese's universal fifth wheel rail kit part # RP30035 which they list as a fit for your 2011 Ford F-350 long bed they recommend having the center of the king pin 4 inches in front of the rear axle center. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions for this rail kit that have other measurements as well that you'd need for placing the rails in the truck bed.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Frame Mounting Brackets for a 2003 Ford F250
  • The mounting rails that sit in the truck bed that provide the connection point for the hitch can be reused, but you'll need new frame mounting brackets (unless you've used a universal mounting kit like # RP30035) and hardware, as the hardware is meant for a one time use only. For the Ford, I'd recommend going with the Reese custom install brackets, part # 50043, which included the hardware to mount the brackets to the truck frame. To attach the bed rails to the frame brackets, you'll...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit for a 2016 Ford F-250 and Reese Slider Hitch
  • The trailer hitch itself, # RP30051, is not vehicle specific so you will just need the proper installation kit for your 2016 Ford F-250. You can use installation kit # DM8552000-71. It will fit long or short bed models. This is a custom installation kit so it does not require drilling into the truck frame for installation.
