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

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. Instructions were easy to follow and installation time was about four hours. Removing spare tire makes the installation much easier. 118114

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. I installed the Reese Elite hitch on the unit and will be picking up our new camper in April to start our first of 3 cross country adventures. 175845
Received package that had a lot of tape at both ends and wondered wtf. Then I tried to move it and then knew why. HEAVY. Was missing two pucks. but everything went together and had no problems. Good product and will let you know when I get the other 2 pucks. 163491

Took a long afternoon to get it in, parts are massive. Haven't had the 150 ft lb torque wrench out in years. I am going to enjoy hitching without those rails in the way all the time. 159990
