2014 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

It does not fit the 5th wheel; do I have to drill new holes in 5th wheel????

The Reese 30023 hitch you have used a T-bolt mount to the bed rails, versus a linch pin style connection used by the newer ones. Reese hasnt manufactured that connection style since around 1990. Unfortunately, Reese doesnt offer those rails or hitch legs that would allow you to retrofit your existing hitch. There is a solution, though. Your old rails shown in one of your photos should be compatible with the frame brackets, so as long as the old rails are still in sound shape you could reuse them. Drilling holes in the new rails isnt recommended, as it could weaken them.

Works Great. Install was fairly easy


Does what it is supposed to do! Installation was a breeze. Great service from etrailer!

Very good!
TJ - 02/26/2022


I received the Reese 5th wheel 16,000 lb slider hitch from etrailer in June 2019; installed it in July 2019. Took around five hours to install the base rail kit and Reese hitch start to finish. So far so good, this heavy duty slider hitch works flawlessly with my F250/fifth wheel combo. It arrived in multiple boxes, had excellent instructions and an operating manual. For myself and other do-it-yourselfers, etrailer provides excellent support and installation videos to help with the install.

2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I ordered the Reese Custom install kit for their 5th wheel hitch for my 2011 F250 Diesel Lariat, short bed. It was shipped quickly, was well packaged and came with clear directions. etrailer was fantastic about customer support and making sure all the pieces parts were there. I'm planning on installing in a couple of days and am looking forward to using it. I'm glad I went this route vs the other generic kit. This one is cut to fit this exact vehicle, so no hunting for good mounting spot, moving lines or drilling the frame etc.

2013 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Well, this is my third purchase of the same exact custom rail kit. Needless to say, I'm getting pretty good at it. This has been the best experience this far do to one simple change from the last two kits. They have added a single wing on the nut that holds holds the quick mount to the truck frame. This alone allows you to tighten the bolts without have to hold a wrench on the nut on the other side of the frame. This made this one man job much, much easier. The only reason I still give it 4 stars is the instructions still lack for the first time installer of this product. I give 5 stars to etrailer for putting out fantastic how to videos that explain the install much better. I watched it just to brush up. Excellent job !! I'm an etrailer customer for life due to great products and support.

2016 Ford F-250-Super-Duty

This product works great! Easy install took about 2 hours with my brother and a couple of basic shop tools, very satisfied

Honda Pilot

It was the easiest set of rails I have ever installed. I mounted the brackets to the frame and drilled a pilot hole up to the top of the bed. I could have had the job completed in less than 20 minutes if it weren’t for having to climb in and out of the bed. All of my trucks from now on will have the same product.


Installation went a lot smoother than anticipated. It is a quality product that I would recommend to anyone, especially over the universal fit units.

The hitch works great. I have not had any issues. I consider it a quality product and worthwhile investment.
Henry S - 08/21/2018


I've been towing a 43ft, 20,000 lb, toyhauler for about a year now. This hitch has been great, easy to use and hasn't caused me any issues. I live in the PNW and it just lives in the back of my truck in the weather and zero issues. The price was amazing and it works great.

Still works great! Great price. Very happy
Eric B - 11/22/2018

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

This 5th wheel mounting assembly was a perfect fit for my 2016 F-250 . The directions were easy to follow and installation took me about 4 hours. The one suggestion I would make is ensure you have access to a torque wrench. I did, but the direction do not specify it in the tools required section. Over all E-Trailer had awesome service, quick delivery, great pricing and the assembly arrived in two days. You can't ask for much more then that.

2011 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

I very much enjoy my REESE slider hitch purchased from etrailer. It works exactly as advertised and is holding up well. Its quiet on the road and makes hooking up a breeze.

2011 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Product was as described and easy to install. If I change trucks again I would purchase from etrailer again.

Great, this is the 2nd one I have ordered as I purchased a different truck. I would order again from you as install has been quick and easy.

2013 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Shipped and received as promised. The Reese 5th wheel Hitch and hardware were in perfect condition with no issues. I'm in the process of installing it on my 2013 Ford. I expect no problems. Great price, with no shipping costs or tax paid.


Relatively easy to install, clear instructions, and works great.

2013 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Got here fast and in great shape. Installation was very easy. High quality and the fit was perfect

Very Pleased
JL s - 05/10/2018


Product came in as described. Installation was very easy and the instructions were easy to follow. Everything lined up perfectly.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Quick delivery, arrived in perfect condition. Would buy again and definitely recommend to anyone looking for a hitch.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Pleased with the brackets and rails for fifth wheel.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Installed on a 2016 f250 with no complications, very exact fit in all all aspects. Took about 4.5 hours using floor jacks in a tight space. It could be done very efficiently with a second hand and a lift.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Shipped on schedule. Hitch was exactly as advertised and the same price as other stores. My nephew recently purchased same hitch from another store and the packaging was damaged resulting in missing washers.


Fairly easy install. Had to drill the holes a little larger than 9/16 because of the location of the bed sills but other than that no problems.


Worth buying the custom frame brackets. Made installation go easy.

2011 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Super fast shipping, low price and easy to follow directions. Loved the fact that I did NOT have to drill any holes in the frame of my truck. Everything was super easy and fast to install.


Very easy to install. If you are going to use air bags install them first.

  • Could Reese Bracket Kit part # RP50026 Fit Existing Fifth Wheel Rails
    If the rails you have are Reese brand rails yes the quick install bracket kit part # RP50026 will work well for you. But if they are not you'd need to order this kit with rails as part # RP50026-58 as we can't recommend mixing rail kit and bracket manufacturers.

  • Will RBW Lil' Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Reese Rails in a 2014 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    We have determined that the RBW Lil' Rocker 5th wheel hitch does fit in industry standard above the bed rails which is what comes with installation kit # RP50026-58 for your 2014 Ford F-250 short bed.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    Due to the age of your rails you are going to want to get new ones since the bracket kits we offer are not designed for use with other manufacturers and due to the age yours are probably at least slightly different and most likely a bit worn out. For a custom fit fifth wheel rail kit confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Ford F-250 the part # RP50026-58 would be a great option that would minimize drilling and install time on your truck when compared to a universal kit.

  • Above Bed Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2012 Ford F-250
    Your best solution will be a set of custom fit fifth wheel rails confirmed as a fit for your 2012 Ford F-250 since the custom kits install much easier than universal kits. For that you'd want the Reese kit part # RP50026-58 which is custom fit for your truck and will work great with you Superglide 2900 that is designed for this rail style. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit On 2011 Ford F-250
    The RP50073-58 has been discontinued but is still verified as a fit for your 2011 F-250. Since hardware is designed for a one-time use only, you will want to replace the hardware if you are able to find new old stock somewhere. The base rails you have will work just fine. If you decide to replace the entire installation kit I recommend part # RP50026-58. The difference in this kit and the kit you said you are looking at is a little difference in the brackets, but my contact at Reese...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for 2011 Ford F-250 Diesel and Reese Hitch
    All you will need is the proper installation kit that will accommodate the DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) tank on your 2011 Ford F-250. Installation kit # RP50026-58 does accommodate the DEF tank so it is the perfect option for your truck.

  • Can Fifth-Wheel Rails Be Installed On 2015 Ford F-250 Without Lifting The Truck
    The installation instructions do not mention having to lift the vehicle but do say if more room is needed to lower and remove the spare tire. You can install the # RP50026-58 rail kit without a lift. You should have enough clearance under the truck without having to lift the truck at all. If you decide to use a jack to lift the truck you will need to make sure it is well supported with something like jack stands, and also make sure the wheels are chocked, so the truck has no chance of moving.

  • Can 5th Wheel Brackets be Installed First Before Rails and holes Drilled Up Through the Truck Bed
    I suppose you could but the positioning of the rails is critical so you would need to be vigilant about getting them in the right locations. I recommend just following the installation instructions because if you were to have the brackets off of where they need to be then everything is off and you will have to drill additional holes through the bed. The holes in the brackets for the frame bolts are elongated which allows for a little front to back slop, so you would have to make sure the...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350 for Lil Rocker Hitch
    The Lil Rocker fifth wheel hitches are compatible with industry standard fifth wheel rails. So for your 2015 Ford F-250 long bed I would recommend a custom install fifth wheel rail kit like the part # RP50026-58 which will cut install time and minimize drilling when compared to a universal kit.

  • Will the Hensley BD3 5th Wheel Hitch Work with Reese Base Rails on a 2015 Ford F-350
    Yes, the Reese Custom Fifth Wheel Base Rails and Install Kit, # RP50026-58 , will fit your 2015 Ford F-350. Your Hensley BD3 hitch is compatible with all standard above-bed fifth wheel rails, so it will work with the Reese base rails that come with this kit. I have attached an installation video on a 2014 F-350 for you to check out. The installation will be the same on your 2015 model.

  • Rear Bumper to 5th Wheel Trailer Clearance
    The Reese Custom Quick-Install Kit, # RP50026-58, will not move the center of the fifth wheel hitch directly over the axle. It will actually place the hitch 2-15/16 inches in front of the center of the axle. If the 5 inches between the truck bed and the trailer is the closest the two get when turning, then that is not too bad. We typically like to see at least 4 inches to allow for pitch in the road. Another dimension that you can check is the distance from your truck bumper to the underside...

    There is one important measurement that you will need when installing the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, part # RP50026-58 to your 2011 Ford F-250. That measurement is for placement of the front mounting rail. The measurement will be from the rear edge of the bed of the truck, with the tailgate removed, to the inside edge of the front mount base rail. This measurement will be 54-3/16 inches.

    For a 2012 Ford F-250 Diesel short bed, the correct kit is the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, # RP50026-58, that you have referenced. This kit accommodates the DEF tank on diesel models. Because this is a custom installation kit you will not have to drill to install the frame brackets. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation of this kit. If your truck has a bed shorter than 6 feet, you would have to use a standard 5th wheel hitch and...

The center to center line for the rails is 22" so that plus an extra 4" - 6" for the complete width of the base rails would put you at 58" - 60" leaving you approximately 38" between the rails and the cab of the truck.

    For a fifth wheel rail kit that fits your 2015 Ford F-250 you'll want a custom fit kit like the Reese part # RP50026-58 as the custom kits minimize drilling and install time compared to trying to make a universal kit fit.

  • Where Should the 5th Wheel Hitch Sit On a 2015 Ford F-350
    The correct placement of a fifth wheel hitch will vary from vehicle to vehicle but over the center of the rear axle is most common. That said, most newer trucks have pre-existing holes in the frame so the install kits like the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit part # RP50026-58 only allow the hitch to be positioned in one spot which is what the manufacturer determines to be the best for that particular vehicle.

    The spacing for the base rail kit can slightly vary based on the manufacturer but if you are installing the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP50026-58 on your 2016 Ford F-350 long bed then you want to place the back of the rearmost rail 32-1/4" from the tailgate opening.

If you only needed the brackets and not the rails you would instead want the part # RP50026 and # 58164 for new hardware for the rails to the brackets. This hardware is designed to be torqued down one time so you would need the new hardware kit to replace what you have.
