Today, we're going to review part number RP30154. This is the Reese 5th wheel rail adapter for the Ram OEM 5th wheel towing prep package, has a 25,000-pound weight capacity. Now, this adapter right here will allow you to use your standard above-bed 5th wheel trailer hitch with your Ram factory under-bed 5th wheel towing prep package. The adapter will mount into the factory sockets and it supplies the truck bed base rails that are needed to install your 5th wheel hitch too. This part does include everything shown here. It includes this adapter, includes the four end caps. The end caps would basically pop on the end right there.
Now, it does also include these four heavy-duty anchors which are these bolts and nuts, and basically those will be used in a case of if you're going to tow over 20,000 pounds. When you put your 5th wheel hitch into these rails instead of using the standard pins and clips that comes with it, it is required to use these heavy-duty bolts and lock nuts if you're going to go over 20,000 pounds towing. It also comes with these bail pins, and these bail pins would be used to lock these handles into place. Basically, the way this would operate is to drop this into your Ram factory under-bed prep package, you'd just swing these handles open like this; two on this side, two on this side. When you swing these open, it moves this anchor about 90 degrees and that will allow you with all four of them opened to drop it into the pucks on your factory system on your Ram. Once they're dropped into the pucks, you would just rotate these handles this way, one this way, and it rotates that anchor 90 degrees and it'll lock it into the puck. Then, what you'll do is take this bail pin and just go ahead and open this bail pin up.
Drop it through. There is holes in the handles and then holes in the adapter. Then, you just clip that into place and then that keeps those from opening, so it keeps it lock to the pucks on your factory under-bed system here. Now, again this will convert your factory installed under-bed 5th wheel mounting kit from the Ram to give you these standard above-bed 5th wheel base rails. They do mount to the OEM pucks or the sockets in your truck bed. This unit drops into the pucks, locks in place like I was just showing you, so you could basically use a 5th wheel trailer hitch that attaches to standard above-bed rails. There is no drilling or welding required.
Everything is a black powder coat steel construction. Again as I mentioned about these heavy-duty anchors, just to reiterate again. If this adapter is used to tow anything over 20,000 pounds, it is required to use these heavy-duty anchors to hold the 5th wheel hitch to this adapter instead of the standard pins and clips. Again, maximum capacity is 25,000 pounds. This does work with the Reese slider hitches, RP30048, RP30092, and RP50024, and this part does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number RP30154, the Reese 5th wheel rail adapter for the Ram OEM 5th wheel towing prep package. .

Searched for a solution for mounting a PullRite Super-slide and this frame adapter did the trick. Installs quickly and is easily removed allowing full box utilization. It is identical to the factory optional adapter only hundreds less costly. Did require minor adjustment but instructions were clear and easy to do. Used with Industry standard Rail mounted hitches. 107315

Works as promised. Easy to install and remove. Will absolutely shop with Etrailer again. 144410

The Reese 5th wheel adapter fit very well. The only problem was getting the cotter pins out to make the snugness adjustment. The instructions could have been better. It took a while to realize that there were 2 different adjustments, not one. The one inch wrench is for the positioning (front-back, side to side) of the pins into the bed. No adjustment was necessary with this and I did not need the 1 inch wrench. However, the "T" was loose as the pins were set a little deep into the bed. Once (an hour later) I got the cotter pins out I screwed the T ends about 4 - half turns into the handle so that there was no vertical play. Then reinsert the cotter pins, set the Reese adapter back into the holes, give the handles a 1/2 turn and lock them into place with that snap lock. Reese needs to make it easier to get those pins out. The Pullrite 4409 baserail adapter fit perfectly onto the Reese RAM adapter, and then my old hitch fit perfectly onto the Pullrite adapter. (The only annoying thing is that I now have a hitch that is 7 inches higher than it used to be. But that is not Reese's fault. Darn those truck manufacturers. The trailer tongue can be moved up 2 inches to mitigate a little.) 157248

What a great find ETRAILER.COM has been providing the exact part I needed at the best price around....ETRAILER customer communication was excellent from order confirmation to shipping to delivery follow up....I will definitely consider ETRAILER for my next purchase!.... 133111

Worked beautifully first time this past weekend with my Pro series 16k. Simple to install. The odd thing was that I had to turn the center locking pins upside down and have them in place just before dropping into the trucks peg holes. Otherwise the bed floor is to close on I was unable to close the pin properly. Once I figured this out, it was smooth sailing. Came just as easy. 198319

Arrived as scheduled, UPS driver delivered Ram Oem Adapter For Above-bed 5th Wheel Hitches (RP30154) right to my 2016, 2500 4x4, RAM truck where I unpackaged & installed in less than an hour. Took me a few hours longer to place, attach and adjust the Reese 16K hitch to the proper height. The 4x4 height required the hitch to be lowered. Fantastic pre sales support aided in the proper selection & order at a reduced cost. 237768
Fit good. Directions say to use bolts instead of pins if trailer is over certain weight. I have know idea how barely enough room for pins. No problems with etrailer though 117715

Had to make minor adjustments. All the cotter pins broke when removed, but was going to replace with new stainless pins anyway. Hooked up the 5th wheel and went for a test run of about 20 miles over various roads, to see if I needed to adjust the rail adapter pins. No adjustment needed so far. Pleased with the adapter so I can use my 20K hitch. Did notice the hitch has a very small amount of forward/reverse movement in the rail adapter. Am going to search for rubber bushings. I can hear it is the only reason I would like to limit the movement to zero. Very happy overall. Have done business w/etrailer before, and have no complaints. 214828

Have not used it yet, but very heavy duty, actually have trouble lifting it by myself. 176722

Great product. Reese 5th wheel rail adapter for 2014 Ram with OEM 5th wheel prep package. Perfect fit out of the box. Great customer service. Kept me informed from ordering to delivery. 147449
by: Mike S.05/18/2015
This adapter for my RAM with the Towing Prep fit perfectly! I was originally concerned I'd have to make adjustments, but once I turned the locking handles, it was snug to the floor with no movement! HINT: Insert the locking Bail Pins into the holes in the rail before your final install! The install video shows the tech just dropping the Bail Pins into the hole. Not that smooth in real life. There is little to no space between the bottom of the rails and the truck bed. I couldn't snap the Bail pins unless I placed them in the hole first. Then just work the locking handles over the end of the bail pin ( the handles have some flexibility). Very happy with this adapter. 193998

I finally took delivery of my truck last Friday night, and got my Reese Picture frame adapter R-30154 installed. Here is a picture of the adapter only, and adapter with my hitch installed. Thanks for your assistance, sorry it took so long. 127922

awesome product 105327
I haven't picked it up yet, but I was amazed at the fast shipping & no hassles 164042

Appears to be very well made. Much cheaper price than the factory Ram part! 114862
by: Ed S04/06/2015
The reese adapter came assembled and looked good. I had a slight bug getting it in my OEM slots as the front slots were 3/8" wider then the rear. Rears dropped right in. I called the original owner of the truck and he had the same issue... A little "persuasion" and it went right in. No fault on Reese, but RAM and their assembly guys in the old country... 183517

Received when promised.Box was badly damaged,but part was ok. Was disappointed to see it was made in China! The good news,was that it accually fit in the factory fifth wheel frame pockets with no binding.I had to adjust the grip fingers to remove the up and down play,and the clip pins are pretty close to bed floor,but everything else worked good. Titan hitch has slight bind when installing in knoches but it goes in.Hav'nt towed with yet,but it looks like should be ok.Only concern it sits very high in bed with reese slider setup. 321028
by: Bill H.01/03/2017
Product appears to do what it was intended to do. Like others have written, there are TWO adjustments you may or may not have to make. For me, it was kind of a pain to get the adapter pins adjusted where there was NO up & down play. Had to keep lifting adapter out, pull cotter pins, re-adjust pins a turn, then put back in. After 4-5 times of this on your hands & knees, you get tired quick. (weights 90 lbs) Never did get 100% of Vertical movement out. You will finally get to a point where you will say "that's close enough" 329508

This frame is very stout and will do the job no question. The only thing is that it is heavy and not that easy to take in and out of the bed. I also found it will not work with my rubber bed mat. It would be nice if Reese made an all in one setup like on the Fords. The problem with the all in one setups available are that they are to tall, the B&W is over 17.5'' tall, I need it around 14'' to 15''. This frame and the Reese Pro together measures off my bed to the top plate 16''. 119789

Purchased Reese 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for a Ram 3500 with 5th wheel prep. Easy to order, great service, delivered ahead of schedule. Installation instructions a little confusing, but went slow and had frame adjusted and locked in about 45 minutes. Rock solid connection, tows great. Really like the ability to easily remove at the end of camping season and have a clean, flush bed. I won't miss the permanent bed rails. Will buy from etrailer.com again. Thanks. 200356

I was a little worried when I got the package. The cardboard box had holes in the corners from shipping. The UPS driver knows me from years of shipments so he handed me a handful of bolts that he found on the floor of his truck. Luckily it was all of them. The unit fit the puck system without adjustment, and the fifth wheel hitch dropped right on. The unit has been a solid performer with no worries. It looks like new after a year of use. 299679

Ram Oem adapter, 5-w 20k with rd tube s lider 250804
Box was damaged upon arrival, but the product was in perfect condition. Easy to install and setup, it has to be put in a certain position one set of hole are larger than the other so we had to turn it around for it to fit. Hitch attached easily and we will testing out the setup this weekend. Makes installation of a hitch easy without additional installation fees, easy enough for anyone to install and setup. 338282
by: Dick C.01/31/2016
The order came very quickly and was in good shape. Except, the cotter pins were missing. I had to use my own but they probably should be a hardened grade. Had to adjust the pin heights to get a tight fit. After all that it dropped in a fit good. FYI- the missing cotters are probably fault of Reese, not etrailer but maybe they should do an inspection before ship. Still will buy my truck/trailer stuff from them. 236679
by: Mike D06/29/2016
this hitch adaptor is truly AMAZING!!! very very easy install... i highly recommend this to anyone with a fifth wheel hitch that buys a Ram with the prep package.... u will not be disappointed... well worth every penny 266517
by: Mark S07/31/2016
Ram 2500 OEM hitch adapter installed within minutes. Nothing to put together. A must have when purchasing a newer Ram with OEM 5th wheel hitch installed. Shipping was free and fast. I will buy again from E-Trailer. 277911
by: tony c02/25/2014
just what i was looking for. same as MOPAR piece but less expensive. packaging was inadaqute for shipping method. unfortunally because of weather and CHRYSLER Corp I can not try it in my vehicle. will post at a latter date as to actual install. service from etrailer was exceptional. ordered same part from MOPAR in Jan,2014 / still no delivery date. etrailer had it to me in less than a WEEK. thank you!!!! 117720
by: Paul De04/28/2016
works very well with my 2015 ram 2500 factory puck system- I did have to modify my lil rocker 5th wheel hitch to work with this unit- relatively easy to take out- I leave it in most of the time during the summer- unless I need an absolutely flat bed- I cut holes and formed my old bed mat to work with the hitch adapter- it saved on buying a new 5th wheel hitch with a puck system- it worked for me 247284
by: Mark Y04/06/2016
I ordered the adapter on Sunday, 3 April. Here it is Wednesday, 6 April and the adapter is here already. No room for any form of complaint there. Now, all I need is a truck to put it in. That is why I need a new adapter. I ordered the truck on Friday, and it will be 6 to 8 weeks before I get a chance to install it. With the available adjustments, that should not be a problem. Great service. 243122
by: Herman S.01/29/2017
The frame worked as it is designed. The only problem, and it is not the fault of the frame, is that I have a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 and the box is already high. With the added two or so inches of the frame it made my trailer tow more nose high. I know that if I had bought a hitch that fit the puck system I wouldn't have had this problem, but I already had a Pullright superglider hitch. 336645
by: Ty K.03/31/2016
works great. only thing I don't like is that to take the hitch out of the truck you have to take it apart. the locking bars wont rotate to the unlocking point with the hitch on top. 242467
Product was fine , minor tuning and the unit worked as describe. The only problem was the shipping. The box looked as if it had been somewhat trashed on the corners and the box staples were half open. Fortunately all parts were still in box. Damage to the unit consisted of a bent control arm, which I was able to repair with a little help of a couple of crescent wrenches. 212182
I have a 2015 Ram 3500. This product did not properly fit right and took over 2 hours to get it "close" as Reese would say. The locking arms we're also in the wrong place. This product says that it can easily be put in. I'm a mechanic on the side and this was no easy project. Should have just bought oem. If time is money then this product cosy more than what it should. 212100
by: Brian C09/04/2014
Everything came in as described and in good condition. No hassles / No problems. That's what I like. 5th wheel tow prep package for Ram 3500 works great and makes a clean installation. Reese rail adapter was built heavy duty. The thing must weigh 50lbs. Way easier than drilling the bed! Wish more companies provided the level of information that these guys do. 150088
Awesome product, came 1 day earlier than expected. I read a reviews by others before I ordered adapter. It took me 15 minutes to make the adjustments, cotter pins were very easy to remove and reinstall. Installed my fifth wheel plate hooked up the trailer and went on a three day vacation. Thanks for the quick service. Would highly recommend company and the Reese adapter. 215459
by: Danny Knight08/19/2014
Excellent product and great service. Took 5 minutes to install was adjusted perfectly. Just removed the pucks and dropped it in place. Worked great with my Husky 16K EZ roller hitch. Only thing I would recommend is that call takers have a little more information about the application of the product with other hitchs for the new Dodge below bed rail system. 147483
Overall, an excellent product for a much less price than the OEM product. One minor issue of a hitch pin hole not quit lining up and had to be ground a slight bit but was not much. The product came assembled and fit perfectly when turning the locking pins. I'd recommend this product to everyone needing the 5th wheel hitch adapter for the Ram pickup. 124979
by: Dennis C.08/26/2015
Unbelievable "SERVICE"...I order the product for 25% less than anyone who even carries this product and most of all, including the dealership didn't even stock it...Hopefully in the future, if I need any other towing attachments for my 2015 Ram 2500....I hope I can at least have the opportunity to purchase it from you guys. Thanks... 221781
by: Scott Cummings04/16/2016
Just received the hitch, took about half an hour to make some adjustments. It dropped in with no problem. Real happy with it. Thankyou 245636

I received my Reese RP30154 hitch adapter a few days after ordering. I thought it would be a couple of weeks before it came. It's much heavier than I thought it would be and looks well built. I can't give it much of a review now, because the truck I ordered won't arrive until mid April. I will give a follow up after instalation. 180457
After some adjusting of the "T pin anchors the adaptor seems to work as described however, the cotter pins that secure the "T pin anchor" to the anchor handles will shear off easily if there is any resistance while turning the handles. Suggest replacing the aluminum cotter pins with something more substantial. 139822

Ordered the Reese 5th wheel adapter for my 2014 3500 Larimie Limited with the factory fifth wheel option and it arrived in time and fit perfectly. I might need to adjust one mounting stud but the instructions that came with it are easy to follow. I would recommend etrailer to anyone, great customer service. 126589
This product was easy to install. It fit our vehicle perfectly and our Reese hitch dropped right in as it was supposed to do. Product was delivered on a timely basis with great packaging. We have not pulled with the hitch and trailer yet, but I will update after the first trip. 232960
Received 5 th wheel adapter today, took me 1/2 hr to set up. My Reese 5 th wheel hitch fit perfectly. My only suggestion is to put the bail pins in upside down to clip shut. Not enough room to do it as suggested.. Would definitely recommend, and save about $250 from OEM. 239463
by: Robert, O04/07/2014
This product fit into my 2014 dodge just fine. I would suggest making the end caps a different way, when you try to install them they tear and mess up one corner. The locking bars could be smaller so you can unlock it with out having to take the head off to remove the base. 124233
This product allowed me to keep my 16K Reese hitch and install the new rails. Installation was done by my son and son-in-law and was completed in about 30 minutes. Just can't thank etrailer enough for their assistance in selecting the right rails. Just too awesome. 172003
by: Larry M04/25/2014
Great experience! Rep called same day I ordered the item told me it might be middle of next month before it ships. I don't know what happened but I received it in about 3 days. I put the 5th wheel Reese rail adapter in the bed of my Ram 2500 in less in 25 minutes! 127417
First off, thanks guys! I'm always amazed as to how fast and efficiently I get my orders from etrailer. This bracket fit like a glove in my 2015 Dodge Ram Laramie 3500 DRW crew cab long box. I used it with a Trailersaver TS3 air hitch and it was a perfect match. 202868
by: Dick P01/28/2014
Welds on top make it difficult to lock down as handles hit the welds. Have to remove the hitch to remove the adaptor, could have been designed better 114992
by: Steve s08/24/2016
I got the product I ordered in 3 days. I installed it in 20 minutes and my hitch mounted to it perfectly. The rail kit for 2016 Dodge Ram fit perfectly in the puck system. Michele was very helpful and friendly figuring out which system I needed. 287084
