Easy to install using preexisting holes, actually makes the rear wheelwell look better, and most importantly, it's F'ing bulletproof strong.

Product seems solid and has what is needed, instructions are a bit vague as to what to do with the heat shield, but I figured it out. Issues with install (note: I'm pretty novice at wrenching) on my 07 classic silverado 2500hd CC, std bed * it's very tricky to get the main horizontal rails onto the frame, at least on my pickup, because of all the exhaust, axle, brakelines, etc that are in the area. It took me hours of finagling, but they did go in. If I had a hoist and air tools, I probably would have lifted the bed a few inches, then it would have been trivial. * at least on my short bed, there is a join in the pickup's frame rails right where the forward hitch rail sits. no problem with sitting it there, but it makes the rail sit up a fraction of an inch and at a slight angle. This makes it very tricky to get the rail bolted to the bracket because the hole in the bracket doesn't quite line up perfectly (and the wheel well is cutting it close so access is tricky) * same as above, the rail sitting slightly cockeyed means the puck ends up slightly cockeyed, which means I have to stomp on the hitch a bit to get it to seat in well. All in all, it's solid and will work well, but I had hoped it would sit more flush and wasn't prepared for the time it would take to get the rails onto the frame. If I did it again, I would consider grinding down the extra steel on the frame to make the rail sit more flush, but I'd have to verify that doesn't sacrifice the truck's structure. Used for my Reese signature series 16k slider (older model hitch)


Comments
A year later, I still like it, the hitch seems very solid. The slight unevenness that I noted in my original review is still there, but not problematic. Still a happy customer considering everything in the original review

Sorry no pictures this time. Great product and great doing business with etrailer. UPS was not good as the it was delivered 3 days after estimated delivery time that UPS provided. Submitted a complaint and that was a waste of time. Will continue to use etrailer.

  • Will the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Fit a 2005 Chevy Silverado 8' Bed
    The Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP30061 which is a fit for a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado will not work on models with an 8' bed. If you are looking for an underbed mount option we have the Custom Underbed Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1067-5W with B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3500-5W. Please note, the Custom Underbed Installation Kit is for 2500 models only. If you have a 3500 model you need part # BWGNRK1062-5W...

  • Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in Reese Elite Underbed Install Kit on 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    Yes, there is an adapter that you can use with Reese Elite series installation kit # RP30061 for your 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. It is adapter # RP30156. This adapter will accept 5th wheel trailer hitches that A) fit in industry standard above the bed rails and B) have feet that are 29 or 20-1/2 inches apart on center (side to side) and 22 inches apart on center (front to back). I have linked a video review and the instructions for the adapter for you.

    The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30061 can be used with a Curt legs # C16017 and a Curt hitch like # C16520. The max capacity will be limited by the hitch head or the Elite rails which are rated for 18,000 lbs. The Ford OEM system is the same as the Reese Elite system because Reese started that style of clean connection. Other manufacturers followed and altered the measurements so not all OEM legs will work with the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch & Underbed Kit for 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5-1/2-Foot Bed
    Usually a very short bed truck like your 5-1/2-foot-bed 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 does require a 5th wheel replacement pin box, a Reese Sidewinder or Revolution, in order to have enough turning clearance for tight maneuvers. Sidewinders provide a substantial 22-inches of additional clearance. But you do have an option in the Demco under-bed mounted slider hitch # DM8550041 and mounting kit # DM8551008. Most slider hitches provide 10- to 14-inches of additional turning clearance...

  • Best Under Bed 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit for a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500 Classic
    Yes, we do offer custom fit (no drill) under bed 5th wheel hitch mounting kits for your 2007 GMC Sierra 2500 Classic. However, please note that the no drill is in reference to the frame brackets because you will need to drill through the bed floor no matter what to install a 5th wheel hitch. I recommend the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP30061 which is essentially the same thing as the puck systems you see in the newer trucks....

  • Can Reese 5th Wheel Under-Bed Rail Install Kit Work with Firestone Airbags on a 2007 Chevy 2500HD
    The Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # RP30061 is considered a fit for your 2007 Chevrolet Silverado, and should work with Firestone Airbag suspension enhancement. Typically the under bed mounting kits allow for utilization of the existing frame mount locations for the Firestone Airbags. The 5th wheel hitch under bed mounting kit mounts to the outside of the truck frame, and the airbag brackets typically mount on the inside of the frame.

    While we do have underbed fifth wheel rails for your 2006 GMC Sierra 3500, the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30061 does not fit any 8 foot beds; rail kits are specific to vehicle frames which are going to be different depending on their length.

  • Under-Bed 5th Wheel Mounting Rails for Curt Hitch 2015 GMC Sierra 3500
    I'd be happy to help you with that. For the underbed rail system, you'd use the Reese # RP30868. The # RP30061 you'd looked at is for the previous generation truck, and wouldn't work on your 2015 Sierra 3500. The puck layout is the same as what Ford uses, so you can just choose a Curt 5th wheel hitch for the Ford puck system and it'll work great. I see that you'd looked at the Curt Q24 # C16245 which is a great choice. In order to fit the pucks provided by the Reese # RP30868 underbed...

  • The Height of Reese Elite Pucks for Under Bed Rails Too Tall for Bed
    The pucks of the Reese Elite # RP30061 should be slightly adjustable like the Replacement Quick Turn Puck for Reese Elite Under Bed System # 116517 or the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Rail Puck Adapters for Plastic Truck Bed Liner # RP30149. The bed liner option is slightly higher to account for that liner. It sounds like you may have the bed liner option without a bed liner. The overall height of the # 116517 is 2-1/8 inches tall.

  • Gooseneck Option for the Reese Elite Underbed Rail kit # RP30061

The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3370 or part # BWRVK3300 are the best option for this.

  • Reese Elite Gooseneck Hitch Adapter Recommendation for Elite Rail Kit
    The only way you'd be able to tow a gooseneck hitch with an Elite rail kit part # RP30061 is with the gooseneck hitch adapter part # RP30845 that you referenced. Reese does not have an add-on to the older Elite hitches that allows them an underbed gooseneck hitch. You would not be able to use the Andersen Ultimate part AM3220 with the # RP30845 either. The ball would be too high. You'd need to use an Elite fifth wheel hitch like the Reese # RP30142

  • Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch that Fit Underbed Reese Rail Kit for 2012 Ram 2500
    The 30071 appears to be a much older Signature Series slider base that's not currently supported which means we don't have a hitch head that would fit it. So you'd need a hitch like the # RP30144 which is a slider that would fit the underbed rail kit you have now.

    I have a great option for an under-bed mounted fifth wheel rail system, but I checked with Reese and surprisingly they do not have an Elite rail kit for the long bed version of your truck. I would recommend the B and W Companion hitch setup with part # BWRVK3500 for the hitch and then the part # BWGNRK1067 for the rails. The Companion hitches are considered by nearly all RVers as the nicest hitches around so I know you will be happy with this setup. I attached an install video for...

  • Will a Reese Signature Series 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Reese Elite Series Underbed Installation Kit
    Your Signature Series hitch will fit the Reese Elite underbed installation kit # RP30061. However, the installation kit will only fit short bed models of the 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 new body style. If you have a long bed it will not fit and you would need to look at a different installation kit and hitch. Let me know if you do have a long bed and I can make recommendations for you.

I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video showing installation featuring this kit for you to view. With a short bed, the Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30142, may not offer the clearance you need to safely make 90 degree turns.
