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.

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

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

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

    The correct Reese base rail kit that fits your 1994 Ford F-150 is part # RP30035 and it comes with the base rails, mounting brackets, and all of the hardware that you need. If you happen to already have the base rails then you need the kit with the mounting brackets and hardware as part # RP30439.

    I have two options for you to use part of the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP30035 that you have now. The first option and the best one is to obtain the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP50087 which is a custom fit so no drilling into the frame whatsoever is required. The other option if you don't mind drilling to save a bit of money would be to use the Reese Mounting Bracket Kit for 5th...

  • Low Cost Fifth Wheel Hitch and Base Rails for 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500
    We can get you a low-cost 5th wheel hitch and base rails with installation kit for your 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 but since you have a short bed you will need a sliding fifth wheel hitch and the kit you mentioned has a fixed hitch. Please keep in mind that sliding hitches cost more than fixed hitches due to them having moving parts, but it is needed so the fifth wheel doesn't crash into your cab when turning, which would of course cost more. So the lowest-cost option that will work...

  • Easier to Install 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Chevy Silverado Towing Lippert Turning Point Trailer
    The Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel rail kit adapters can't be used with pivoting pin boxes like what your Grand Design Reflection 150 295RL has and since you have a short bed wouldn't be able to get by with locking out the pin box so that it no longer pivots with the Andersen. So your best option is going to be a fixed hitch that can break down into smaller sections like the B and W Patriot part # BWRVK3200 which happens to be a bit lighter weight at 147 lbs with a standard rail kit like...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Bracket/Rail Install Kit for 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500
    Your Pro Series hitch uses industry standard rails, so you can choose rail kits from Curt, Demco, Reese or even B & W. I'd recommend you use the B & W kit, part # BWRVK2506 because it's reasonably priced and manufactured in the USA. This is a custom installation kit that utilized pre-drilleld holes iin the frame for a roughly 30% quicker installation versus a universal install kit like the # RP30035. If you don't already have one, you can install a 7-way in the bed of your truck using...

I highly recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP50026-58 because these are a vehicle-specific fit that will not require drilling into your truck's frame and will cut the installation time significantly.

    Yes, the Reese universal fifth-wheel rail installation kit # RP30035 would be compatible with an RBW Xtender hitch. To run wiring into the bed of your truck, I would recommend fifth-wheel wiring harness # PK11893-11932, as this would be custom fit to your 2002 Chevy 2500 and offers an easy installation.

You should find this weight listed on the ID plate which has the fifth wheel's VIN. If the fully loaded weight of your fifth wheel is less than 20,000 lbs, then the Pro Series fifth wheel hitch you referenced, part # PS30119, would be a good choice for a long bed truck. For a short bed, you'll want to use a sliding version, part # PS30121. If the GVWR of your...

That is where the rear edge of the FRONT rail will sit. Then you would use the fifth wheel hitch to locate the rear rail. Basically once you have the front rail in the right spot the hitch will show you where the rear rail will need to be once you set the hitch into it.
