Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP30126 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30126. This is the Reese Underbed Rail and Installation Kit for the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches. This is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the Ford F-250, the F-350, the F-450 super duty trucks with either the short bed or the long bed starting in the year 2011. This is a custom underbed rail kit and it'll provide full access of your truck bed once the hitch is removed and it features Reese's easy and secure Power Puck mounting system. Basically just the four pucks will be shown in your truck bed and if you pop off the covers that I have installed in there, you'll see the openings where the hitch will drop right in, lock into place and then when you're done, you just pull it out, put the covers back in and you have full access of your truck bed. Now this installation kit is designed for use with the Reese Elite Series and the Signature Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches. The Signature Series which is the older model that this will work with, but an adapter kit is required.

It's part number RP58419. We do sell that on our website. Now also this system is pretty much specifically designed for the Elite Series Underbed Gooseneck Hitch and we do sell that Elite Series Gooseneck Hitch, part number RP30138 and that is sold separately also on our website. Now the rails. Now for demonstration purposes, I have installed the side brackets to the rails to show you what it's going to look like under the truck. Basically these underbed rails, they'll provide complete access to your truck bed when the hitch is removed.

These rails will be under the bed so they're not exposed and basically just four small mounting holes will be showing in your truck bed and that'll be the Power Puck system which will allow quick, simple mounting and removal of the hitch. As you can see, it's a very wide platform design which ensures absolute hitch stability. It is a vehicle-specific design so when you install these brackets and the rails, the installation time is sometimes cut in half. Mainly when you compare it to the universal design systems that are out there because this design, the custom fit design, will require less drilling. These brackets will mount on the outside of the vehicle frame rails and the cross numbers sit along the top of the vehicle frame rails but underneath the truck bed. All these parts are a black powder coat steel finish which will help resist corrosion. The rails, the installation hardware, all the brackets and the hardware shown here are all included. Again, the specs on this, the application is for Reese Elite Series and Signature Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches and the capacity on these rails is 25,000 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number RP30126, the Reese Underbed Rail and Installation Kit for the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches.

My new F350 didn't have the under bed 5th wheel mount and I didn't want to use the rails that bolt across the bed. I bought the Reese under bed parts, Reese adapter, new legs for the hitch and a bed mat and installed it myself. I drilled through the dimples in the bed, bolted in the under bed parts and everything lined up nice. Since I went from a short bed to a long bed I didn't need the slider legs so I replaced them with fixed legs. When the hitch and adapter are out of the bed, nothing is in the way on the floor. I like it. 243481

Great product. And purchased from a great company! The package was pretty beat up when it arrived (one end of the box was hanging completely open). But I doubt etrailer had anything to do with that as it was taped from top to bottom. Most likely it was a shipping and handling issue. But surprisingly, all of the parts were in the box. The one bracket had apparently taken a little impact as a little of the black finish was off, but it's a hitch... so it'll be fine. The hitch install went as described in the instructions. And the installation videos online were a tremendous help. The biggest suggestion I can make... don't expect to install the hitch without lifting the bed. And when removing the bed bolts, expect them to be tight - very tight their entire length. But installation went well and the results look great. Now we just have to wait for some better weather to go camping. Thanks for a great product at a great price. 355930

This product was purchased to add to my 2012 F250 shortbed pickup for the ability to pull my fifth wheel camper. It was delivered very quickly but I did pay for the 3-5 day shipping. Within an hour of it's delivery I was installing the unit. It comes with a very detailed instruction book and there is also a video highlighting the installation on etrailer's website that is very helpful. The hitch installed in about an hour with air powered tools with just myself. Be warned this is probably a 2 person install part due to the weight of the rails. It is very well made and fits perfectly. I highly recommend this product if you do not want the conventional rail system. I did need an adapter to make it work with my existing sliding hitch. Part number RP30156. 325669

Etrailer is top notch, excellent customer service. I like the Reese under bed 5th wheel system. It is nice not dealing with rails in the bed. The install took me longer than 4 hours, I found it necessary to block both sides of the bed to get the system in place. It took a little finesse to get the front drivers side bolt in (bracket to the frame bolt). It is above the fuel tank, had to use a long socket extension and sneak the nut in from underneath. The only problems I had were the powder coating was flaking off in spots on the rail system. I had to scrape it down sand off the rust that had already started, prime and paint it. And there were no instructions in the box. 217535

I bought this under mount system because I had the Ford factory system on my last truck so I already owned the receiver. My new truck didn't have the factory option. It all works good together. My only complaint is that the receiver is very heavy to remove from the truck bed. I finally bought a chain hoist that I hang from my garage ceiling that allows me to remove the receiver alone. I also bought a 4 wheel platform that allows me to roll it over to the side of my garage when not in use. I guess heavy duty is a good thing, but my son has a different system which is rated just as high in his F-350 which is a much lighter lift when he wants to clear his truck bed. 242151

ALL of my orders and business with etrailer result in Outstanding service, Expedious delivery and Superb product condition upon receipt! This order of my new Reese Elite 5th wheel assembly, Underrail 5th wheel kit, and Gooseneck kit assembly meets those same conditions I stated above. Thank you E-trailer for another stress-free and wonderful experience with your business and very professional staff! Your business is my first choice when shopping online for all product of this type. Sincerely Dennis R. 330699

Went in very easily in a 2011 super duty long bed - by myself, installation took about five hours for hitch rails and in-bed 7 pin connector that came as a kit with 18K head, but i was moving slowly. Head unit came pre-assembled. The rails themselves are very heavy, much heavier than my old above bed rails - I have no doubt this will last forever. It'll be nice to have the whole bed of my truck without rails in the way - there is absolutely nothing that rises above the bed floor. 22506

First, your customer service rep was the best. She was extremely helpful and very pleasant. Secondly, the hitch shipped so fast (we were in a hurry for it) so that was very wonderful! We installed the product the same night as we received it, the instruction were very straight forward and made installation easy. And we're now ready to pick up our new fifth wheel. Thanks again for all of your help! These comments also apply to product RP30142 the fifth wheel hitch with wiring harness. 48892

This is the second set I have installed, the first was on a 2006 F250 and this was on a 2016 F250. This new one was easier to install as there are no holes to drill in the frame and you don't have to fish bolts through the frame. The install time was about 2 hours less than in the 2006 . GREAT product. 235546

Customer service was excellent. Product was back ordered, but etrailer kept me up to date on the progress and expected shipment date. Package arrive in great condition.

Once I loosened the truck bed it was very easy to get your unit installed. Everything went together as advertised and it fit all the bolt holes perfectly.

This part was well worth the price as it allowed me to adapt my present 5th wheel hitch to the underbed rail system. I did not have to purchase a new 5th wheel trailer hitch to fit the factory 5th wheel prep option on my Ford F-250 Super Duty. 364207

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


  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • Is there a Standard Hitch Ball Size for Gooseneck Hitches
  • Most 25K or 30K gooseneck hitches come with a standard 2-5/16" hitch ball. If you were to get a Hide-a-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch from Draw-Tite # 9460-48, you would have the option to get a different sized ball. This hitch comes with a 2-5/16 sized ball but you could also purchase a Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 19307. This ball has a 3 inch diameter.

  • Trailer Hitch Options for a 2012 Ford F-350 With Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package

There are three Elite Series fifth wheel hitches that are available, the Elite Series 18K hitch, # RP30142, Elite Series 18K Slider, # RP30144, and the Elite Series 25K hitch, # RP30143. If your fifth wheel trailer weighs more than 18,000 lbs when it is fully loaded, then you will need the 25K hitch. If you have a short bed truck, then you will need the 18K...

  • Did Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package Come on the F-250s or Short Bed Trucks

I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. This kit does not include the gooseneck hitch portion, only the 5th wheel portion. To add the gooseneck you would need # RP30138.

  • The Elite Series Hitch # RP30142 that you referenced is one of the nicest fifth wheel hitches on the market and would be an excellent choice for your 2013 Ford F350. This hitch uses a single latch jaw that wraps around the king pin for maximum security and minimal rattle. This system uses an underbed rail system that allows for complete truck access when the hitch is not installed whereas other hitches with above bed rails have cumbersome rails that can take up valuable truck bed space.

Since you have a toy hauler that weighs 19,000 lbs you will want a Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30143. This hitch has a capacity of 25,000 lbs and would have plenty of capacity for your setup. You should have 4 slightly raised pucks in the bed of your truck. These will be what the # RP30143 will...

It will work with the B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3300. Reese Elite part # RP30868 you referenced is specifically for 2011-2014 Chevy and GMC various bed lengths. I included a couple video demos and FAQ for you too.

  • Are the OEM Ford Prep Package and Aftermarket Reese Underbed System the Same on a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The factory underbed mount on the 2015 Ford trucks is nearly identical to the aftermarket version. The hitches that fit in the factory prep package will also fit the aftermarket version, # RP30126. There is also an adapter, # RP30156, if you do not want to use one of the hitches that fit directly in the underbed system. The adapter accepts hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails. For a short bed truck with the OEM prep package or with the aftermarket underbed system...

This would lock into the puck system in the bed of the F-350 and allow you to attach the hitch. If you have a hitch that does not use industry standard rails, we do not have a rail kit that would work for you. If your SuperGlide does not use standard rails you may want to order a truck without the factory under bed kit and then contact...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Ford Super Duty Hitch Prep Package Long Bed

It has a 20k capacity so it would have more than enough capacity for your 14k trailer. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

You cannot use a rear axle suspension kit that attaches in the same location.

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 2017 Ford F-250 and 7,000 Pound Trailer
  • I assume that is the dry tongue weight because tongue weight is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So for a trailer weighing 7,000 pounds max the tongue weight would be 700 to 1,050 pounds. Tongue weight is important because to choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and Under Bed Rails to Use with a Sidewinder on a 2016 Ford F-250
  • A fifth wheel trailer hitch that will fit your 2016 Ford F-250 is the Reese Elite Series # RP30142. It's an 18,000 pound hitch with a 4-way pivoting head and self-latching jaw. This also includes a 9 foot 7-way trailer wiring harness. Use the Under-Bed Rail and Install Kit # RP30126 to install either hitch in your truck. Once you decide on a trailer you can provide me with the model pin box it has and I can refer the correct Sidewinder if it doesn't come with a Revolution pin box.

  • Can Air Lift or Firestone Air Bags be Installed with Reese Under Bed Kit on a 2016 Ford F-250
  • The frame brackets for Reese under bed installation kit # RP30126 mount to the outboard sides of the frame rails on your 2016 Ford F-250. This means that any air bag kit that mounts on the inboard sides of the frame rails will work with the under bed kit. So for Air Lift, if your truck is a 4x4 use # AL88396. And if it is 2-wheel drive use # AL88395. And for Firestone you can use # F2535 for 4- or 2-wheel drive models. This kit was specifically designed for diesel models. I have...
