Video Transcript for Review 2 of Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - RP30886

Today we're going to take a look at the under bed rail installation kit for the Reese elite series fifth wheel trailer hitches. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 and newer Ford F250 F350 and a 450 super duty trucks without the OEM towing prep package and on a custom fit part like the size, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website.Use the fit guide. Put in your year model vehicle, and it'll show if this'll work for your application. Now, this installation kit is designed for use with the Reese elite series fifth wheel trailer hitches. Now, this will work with the Reese signature series hitches, but it does require an adapter kit which is sold separately.

It's part number R-P-5-8-4-1-9, and it's listed on this product page as a related product.Now, these are under bed rails. Now, for this video, I've put these parts together just to give an idea what this would look like all assembled, but these are all under bed rails that provide complete access to your truck bed when the hitch is removed so none of these rails will be exposed in your bed. All you'll see will be these four small mounting holes. You can see I got the plugs in there. If you pull the plug out and these rings will be on top of there also, so the only thing you'll see in your truck that'll be these four rings with these plugs in it.

You pull the plug out and then your hitch will slide right into those pucks.It is a power puck system, so it does allow for a quick simple mounting and removal the hitch. It's a very wide platform so it ensures absolute hitch stability and it is a vehicle specific design, so it does reduce the installation time, requires less drilling than universal systems.These brackets right here will mount to the outside of your vehicle's frames, and the cross members will sit along the top of the vehicle frame rails beneath the bed. All these parts you can see are nice black powder coat steel. They do resist corrosion.The rails, the installation kit, all the hardware, nice set of detailed instructions is all included. The specs again, the application - this is for the Reese elite series fifth wheel trailer hitches, and as I mentioned, the signature series fifth wheel trailer hitches.As long as you get the adapter kit for that.

Weight capacity on this is 27,500 pounds, but that should do it for the review on the underbed rail and installation kit for the Reese elite series fifth wheel trailer hitches.

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I started to install this on my 2019 F350 FX4 lariat crew cab SRW and the instructions stated that “The inner frame brackets should already be welded to the frame. If not, you need to acquire kit #30886-53.” After contacting Reese, found out that the inner frame brackets aren’t available yet. Reese is hard to get ahold of but they are sending me the brackets I need free of charge. 659345

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


  • Hole Location for 2019 Ford Super Duty Underbed Rail Kit for 6-3/4 Foot Bed
  • If I understand correctly you are looking to install the factory pucks in your truck. If that is the case I don't have the drilling measurements for you as we don't carry that kit for your truck. I can tell you the pucks are 30 inches on center side to side and 13 inches front to back on center. The Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel # RP30886 will give you the factory puck locations with an aftermarket kit. I've attached the installation instructions...

  • Reese Rail Kit Recommendation thats Same As Ford Factory Rail Kit in 2019 Ford F-250
  • So Reese is who makes the factory Ford fifth wheel rail kits so that means that the Ford Elite Underbed rail kit part # RP30886 would be what you'd want. This will give you the same exact hitch as what the Ford rail kit offers at a better price. To add the gooseneck hitch you'd then want the part # RP30845. This rail kit will fit any of the fifth wheel hitches designed to fit the Ford factory rail kit but the one we recommend the highest is the B and W Companion Hitch for Ford Rail...

  • Best Under Bed Rail Kit for a 2019 Ford F-350
  • The under bed rail kit I recommend for a 2019 Ford F-350 is the Reese Elite Series Installation Kit part # RP30886 which as you mentioned does not require any drilling into the frame. This is actually the exact same kit that would have come equipped with the truck from the factory if it had the prep package. If you don't already have a 5th wheel hitch, the B&W Companion OEM part # BWRVK3305 for fixed or part # BWRVK3370 for slider is the best option on the market currently due to the...

  • What Is The Difference Between an Under-Bed and Above-Bed 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit 2019 Ford F-350
  • The difference between the above bed rail kits and the under-bed rail kits for the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty is the way they attach to the bed. The above bed rail kits for the Ford F-350 like Curt rails part # C16428-204 will give you industry standard fifth wheel rails in the bed of the truck which will stay in the bed once the fifth wheel hitch is removed. The under-bed rail kits will install under the bed and have either a gooseneck ball style fifth wheel hitch attachment point...

  • What Prevents Corrosion Between Reese Puck System and Aluminum Bed on 2019 Ford Super Duty
  • The Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30886 has a powder coated finish that will resist rust and corrosion with the aluminum bed on a 2019 Ford Super Duty. For the installation you will need to cut some holes in the bed though so to keep that from corroding you need to apply corrosion preventative (like Rustoleum) to the raw edges of the drilled holes (see page 3 of the attached instructions). Then the Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 fits directly into the pucks and there is actually...

  • How to Easily Add Ford OEM Fifth Wheel Rail Kit to 2017 F-250/350 Without It
  • Since Reese is actually who makes the Ford OEM fifth wheel rail kits the correct underbed rail kit you'd need for your 2017 Ford F-250 is the part # RP30886 and you'd be set. This will give you the exact same kit as if you had ordered the truck with the rail kit. With this kit installed you can use the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3300 that you referenced as well.

  • Will a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Hitch Work With The Reese Elite Under-Bed Kit On An 2017 F-250
  • In order to use a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Hitch like part # RP30081 with the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit part # RP30886 on your 2017 Ford F-250 you will need an adapter, the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter part # RP30156. That said, a better option for you would be to purchase a 5th wheel hitch that already fits into the pucks without any adapters need. I recommend the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30871 which also comes with a 5th wheel...

  • Hitch Needed To Add Ford Factory Pucks On a 2019 Ford F-250 That Did Not Come With Them
  • Yes, if you install the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit part # RP30886 on your 2019 Ford F-250 you can then use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider part # DM8550024. The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit will be the same as the Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package so you can use any 5th wheel hitch that is designed for this like the above.

  • How To Add the Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package To a 2017 Ford F-350 Dually
  • In order to obtain the factory 5th wheel prep package for your 2017 Ford F-350 Dually you will need to use the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP30886. This is the exact same kit that would have came with the truck if factory equipped with the prep package. The best 5th wheel hitch to use with the above is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3300 or part # BWRVK3305

  • Reese Elite Under Bed Rail Kit for 2019 Ford F-350
  • I checked with Reese and for your 2019 Ford F-350 short bed you just need the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30886. This is confirmed to fit your truck and will provide you with the pucks needed to mount your existing Reese Elite 18K Sliding Hitch # RP30144. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can check out as well. All of the mounting hardware is included.

  • Do Reese Underbed Rails for 5th Wheel Hitch Fit 2019 Ford F-350 Dually
  • While we have Reese underbed rails and a fifth wheel hitch for your 2019 Ford F-350 dually, the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30126 you referenced does not fit a '19 F-350. Instead, the kit that fits your 2019 Ford F-350 is the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30886. The bed does in fact need to be removed in order to install these underbed rails in order to attach the frame brackets, as you can see in the linked installation...

  • Is Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit Compatible with 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Dually
  • I'm not sure why it would be said that the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30886 doesn't fit a 2019 Ford F-350 Dually. I reached out to my contact at Reese who confirmed that this rail kit is compatible with a '19 F-350 Dually so you are good to go! If you don't already have a 5th wheel hitch then I recommend using the B&W Companion because it is made in the USA, has 1" thick dual jaws and a cushioned head for a smooth towing experience, plus (and best of all) it features a cam-action...

  • Is Reese Elite Rail Kit 30886 Same As Ford Factory Under Bed Fifth Wheel Rail Kit
  • Yes, since Reese makes the under bed OEM rail kits for Ford the Elite Rail kit part # RP30886 is the same thing as the rail kit that Ford offers with the trucks new. The hitch I recommend for this rail kit is the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3300 for if you have a long bed or the part # BWRVK3370 for if you have a short bed since this gives you a slider hitch for additional clearance. This will give you the best ride quality of all of the hitches available since these USA made hitches...

  • What Is The Difference Between an Under-Bed and Above-Bed 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit 2019 Ford F-350
  • The difference between the under-bed and above-bed rail kits for the 2019 Ford F-350 is where they install. The above-bed kits like Curt installation rails part # C16428-204 will give you 5th wheel rails in the bed of your Ford. If you want the bed of the Ford to be empty when you remove the hitch, you want an under-bed kit so the rails will install under the bed instead of in the bed. I recommend the under-bed kit because it's a cleaner install and you won't have rails in the bed if you...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch, Tailgate, and Camera System for a 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Long Bed
  • Thank you for all of the info! We have exactly what you need to get you on the road and to your camping destination. For a 5th wheel trailer I highly recommend using a Demco Hijacker because it uses a single wraparound jaw for a complete 360 degree connection with your king pin, further reinforced by a 3/4" thick locking bar. This coupled with the double-pivot head and polyurethane dampeners gives you one of the most comfortable towing experiences on the market. If you have the OEM...

Yes, if you are wanting to make sure that you have complete access to the 6-1/2' bed when you aren't towing with your 2017 Ford F-250 then you need an underbed rail kit like the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1116 for a 2WD or # BWGNRK1117 for a 4WD. Once this is installed you can then use the Companion 5th wheel hitch.

One of the most popular 5th wheel hitches we have on our site is the B&W Companion which is due to the 1" thick locking jaws, cam-action latching handle for ease of use, and the fact that it is made in the USA.
