Video Transcript for Fifth Wheel Base Rail Kit Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, well be installing part number RP50064-58, the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and 5th Wheel installation kit. Well start off in the bed of the truck where we can place our first rail according to the manufacturers specified measurements. We can then use the rail as a template to mark the four holes we will be drilling to secure it. With the rail out of the way, well go ahead and drill four pilot holes. Underneath the truck, we can then align our bracket with the pilot holes and clamp it into place. Back on top, well drill our holes out to their final size.

Underneath, well be securing the bracket to the frame with several bolts. Here, well thread on our bolt leader and push our bolt and washer into the frame and pull it back out. You want to leave the bolt leader on to help you guide the bracket into place. The outside, well get another washer and nut. We can then hold our bracket back in place with the clamp.

Well be fitting this vertical bracket back behind it and securing it with a flat washer, lock washer and nut on both the top and the bottom. We can then repeat these steps and secure our other bracket on the opposite side of the truck. Before we can secure our rail to our bracket, well need to bend up part of the bed to fit under the lip of our bracket here on the inside of the frame. We can now secure our rail by first placing spacer block between the rail and the bed and then dropping in our bolts. Underneath our bolt, well get another block, a lock washer, and a nut.

On top, we can fit our 5th Wheel into place to determine the placement of our second rail. Well then want to measure to ensure our rail is centered. We can then use the rail as a template to mark the four hole we will be drilling to secure it. We can then attach our rail to our bracket, this time, placing our first spacer block between the underside of the bed and the bracket. With our second rail in placed, we can tighten our bolts down.

Up top, well test fit our 5th Wheel to make sure it easily fits into the rails. With everything that fits, we have two more holes to drill here in the center of our rails. This will get a washer and nut on the underside. Now, we can tighten down all of our bolts and then torque them to the manufacturers specifications. That completes our install of the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and 5th Wheel installation kit part number RP50064-58 on our 2008 Chevrolet Silverado.

I was a little leery of installing a fifth wheel hitch to begin with, but after watching the videos from etrailer a few times and reading the instructions a couple of times, I decided I could do it. I installed the RP50064-58 kit for fifth wheel hitches and the Reese 30083 Fifth Wheel 20K w/Round Slider Unit on my 2006 GMC 2500HD short-bed. I had my three grandsons, ages 2, 3, and 7, helping me. The installation went really smooth (other than the younger children occasionally running off with tools) and I am very impressed by how sturdy it is. Now I am looking forward to receiving the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate with Open Design that I ordered. Thank you etrailer! You make it fun and easy!

Ha ha ha Michael I can relate to that have a 3 and a 7 years old and every time I work on something they are there to help the 3 year old more like wants to do it himself . Planing on installing a 5th myself and was thinking they could be of help steping on the bolts top side so I can put the nuts to the bolts, looks kinda hard. Good luck with your venture .

I have a 2006 2500HD with an existing gooseneck hitch that is welded in place between the frame. I had thought the "custom-fit 5th wheel" brackets would still fit so I ordered them so as to not have to drill in the truck frame. Unfortunately, the gooseneck channel is in the way of where the "U" bolt needed to go on the back side of the frame so I have to return this and get the "universal" install kit / rails. It will still be fine but I was trying to not drill in the frame any more than necessary. I just wanted to pass this along incase anyone else had the same setup. It will save you some time, frustration, and shipping money :-). It was my fault (not etrailer's) . I attached a picture showing where the bracket is with the gooseneck channel behind it (in the way). Hope it helps someone else.

Not as easy as the online videos would lead you to believe. However I did manage to get it installed. Getting the spacers nuts and lock washers on the bolts over the gas tank on my 2014 Silverado were a real SOB. Dropped 3 lock washer into the shroud over the gas tank while trying to accomplish this. Ended up taping the nut and lock washer to my wrench to get them in position while someone turned the bolt from inside the truck bed.

I was happy with this set of rails. I chose to have them installed, but my installer said they fit well and were an easy install. I have used them now with multiple 5th wheel and gooseneck hitches.

I was a bit nervous at first installing the rails that would eventually hold the weight of a 16,000lb camper, however after reading the instructions and looking at the quality of the parts, I felt alot more comfortable. The installation was very easy, and with the large side plates, I feel alot better knowing the rails and hitch are secured to the frame with more than those small pieces of L steel that normally come with the kit. Install only took me about an hour and the hitch is very solid!

Very fast shipping for the 5th wheel sliding hitch, rails and wiring ! Installation was very straight forward although the instructions were a bit vague. Watched the installation videos a couple of times which was a big help. Took about 4 hours for everything including wiring. Could have been quicker if I took off the rear wheels and lowered the exhaust but just worked around them. Picked up my new 5th wheel a week later and was very happy with the hitch - No problems at all. This was installed on a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD.

Per instructions, removal of the vehicle heat shield was a beastly process. Modification of inner fenders was never mentioned in the instructions, had to modify the brackets to eliminate interference fit with hanger on the drivers side on the frame. Had to customize an existing bracket to allow access to mounting bolt on driver side. Also had to modify the frame to gain access to hold 3/4" bolt head for tightening mounting plates. It would have been much better to have had 2 throw away short open end stamped wrenches supplied with the kit in exchange for many extra bolts and other hardware. Once custom fabrication was complete it does work fine.

The frame brackets and measurements worked out incredibly accurately! I am very happy with my purchase and the install time. I will say this, if installed on a 2004 GMC Sierra 2500, the drivers side frame rail is dished inwardly. Making the 1/2x2” bolt impossible to get in the hole from the inside of the frame out! This problem held me up for at least 1-2 hrs, since I had to grind off and make the actual bolt 1 1/2 long to be able to fit it in the proper location in the frame. It would be nice to accommodate for this in the future.

Instructions leave something to be desired.. and every bolt needed for every variation of truck this kit can go on is included, so lots of leftover hardware. Surprising for a 'custom' kit (not universal). Other than that, got it installed on my 2005 Silverado 3500 in roughly the time advertised. Almost. Still trying to figure out how to tighten the last nut that is really hard to reach.


Comments
No issues after a year. Kudos to etrailer for asking since so many people jump the gun quickly with glowing reviews only to realize disappointment soon after. Not so with this kit all is still good.

etrailer's web site is full of info and videos and ordering was a easy. Product came in one box and looks like it may have broken open in transit do to weight (85 lbs.) However box was taped up and nothing was damaged and all parts are there. It appears that the fasteners for multiple applications are supplied, so there may be some left over. I will be installing this into a 2004 Silverado 2500HD that had previously had a 5th wheel hitch so I'm hoping that the preexisting holes line up. Will be towing a 5th wheel camper.

Ordered the Reese Quick-install rail and installation kit for my 08 GMC because the 05 brackets I had did not fit the 08. A friend and I installed it in about 2 hours, had difficulty installing one bolt above the fuel tank but this was to be expected. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The parts fit perfectly and looked like a professional installation when finished.

etrailer had the best price of all of the online suppliers of this product I could find. Quick shipping too. My only issue, and it's really not etrailer's fault, the included instructions left a lot to be desired. But to be fair, I found a YouTube video of this assembly being installed and while it looked pretty simple and straight forward, the video even left out some key issues...such as a brake line that was right in the way and had to be "relocated". Other than the instruction issue, I would give etrailer 5 stars.

The instructions for a 1500 series is horrible, for the back rail to in stall it you have to have your hitch for measurements thats not the way you should install the second rail, give precise measurements. 2nd it took 2 people 8 hrs to install due to the wrong instructions on what holes to use on the frame brackets but, we inprovised fot the parts to work. I wouldn't recommend to all one. I would buy Curt next time.

Product came with all the necessary hardware. Was fairly easy to install. Towing a Heartland Bighorn Fifth Wheel (16000 LB) GVW. One that was installed by previous owner was only an "L" bracket attached to the frame by two 3/8 bolts and only one bolt through the rails in the bed.

This kit was a perfect fit on my 2006 Duramax crew cab. Installation was a breezy and it did not require any drilling or welding of the frame. The instructions were good and all necessary bolts and nuts were supplied ( along with a lifetime supply of spares). I would highly suggest this seller and their kit if you need fifth wheel rails installed in your truck.

My son helped with most of the installation because 4 hands are required! The quality of the product is great as I expected too!

Installed this custom kit on my 2014 Chevy,fit like a glove.A few things I didn't have to do was remove the exhaust pipe or cut the heat shield,I had enough room to put my hands and reach the hardware.But you should lower the gas tank. I don't have access to a hoist,so I had to do my work in the driveway while fighting off the mosquitoes.

I bought a new Chevy 2014 Silverado Double Cab 4X4 with the 6' 6" bed and needed a bed rail kit to mount a fifth wheel hitch from another vehicle. Plan on spending 6 - 8 hours to install it if you have no previous experience with this installation. Make sure you have less than 1/4 of a tank of gas as the installation requires lowering the gas tank down about 12 inches. You will also need to remove the spare tire. You will save yourself a lot grief by doing these two things first. Also note the position of the bolts that hold the rails to the brackets, the front rail uses the outer most holes. The rear rail uses the second set of holes inward from the end of the rail. If you have a bed liner, trim it first before doing anything else. This is a well designed heavy duty product. I have purchased several different products over the years and never had a complaint. Their service and pricing have been great.

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 Long Bed
    Since the rails you have are Reese rails I can recommend you just a bracket and hardware kit so that you can install them in your 2004 Chevy 2500HD Silverado. For the bracket kit you would need part # RP50064. Then for the hardware to attach the rails to the bracket kit you would want the part # RP58430.

  • Compatibility of Reese 15K 5th Wheel Hitch With Other Trucks
    The fifth wheel hitch itself isn't a vehicle specific item, but the install bracket/rails/hardware IS vehicle specific. The only other vehicle specific consideration is the size of the truck bed. If you have a long bed truck, use a stationary hitch. For a 6-1/2 foot bed, you'd want to use a sliding hitch to provide the proper clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the back of the truck cab. If you have the super short 5-1/2 foot bed, the slider won't provide enough clearance...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Hitch For 2009 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    For your 2009 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab 4x4, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50064-58. Then for a 5th wheel hitch, I recommend the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # RP30047. This combination will serve you well with your trailer weight and pin weight. With an 8 foot bed you won't have clearance issues, but if you have a 6-1/2 foot bed, then I recommend the same rail kit,...

  • Custom Fifth Wheel Rails and Brackets for 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    There is a custom bracket kit available for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500, but the Reese # RP56001-53 will not fit. Instead you can use the Reese Custom Installation Kit # RP50064-58, which is a fit for your truck. These brackets will not require drilling into your Silverado's frame and will give you the base rails needed to mount a fifth wheel hitch in your truck bed. I've added a pair of links to installation videos on this product for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 5.5 Bed for Reese Revolution Pin Box
    A Reese Revolution is the equivalent of the Reese Sidewinder. The Revolution is the factory installed option and the Sidewinder is the very similar aftermarket option. For a 5-1/2 foot bed, a sliding hitch will not work, so the Revolution or Sidewinder route is the only option to provide you with turning clearance. The really good news is that is by far the ideal option even if you had a longer bed truck. For your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch & Installation Kit for 2007 Chevy Silverado 3500 Long Bed Pickup
    You can refer to the linked photo showing both Classic and New Body versions of the Chevrolet Silverado to help you determine which you have. The Classic has taller taillight assemblies with the amber turn signal lenses above the clear backup light. It also has a slight rear fender flare. The easiest 5th wheel installation comes from using a custom-fit bracket kit that requires less drilling; you can see these kits for your truck on the linked page. For either body version I suggest...

  • Installing Fifth Wheel Insatllation Rails on a 2008 Chevy 2500 with a Rubber Bed Liner
    Fifth wheel installation rails cannot be installed over plastic bed liners or a rubber mat like what you describe. The liner will eventually disintegrate resulting in a loose hitch. However, the installation rails can be installed over a spray in liner. In other words, if the mat you describe is removable, you cannot mount the rails over it. You could cut away the mat around the rails, so the rails would mount directly to the bed, if you wish. To install a 7-way trailer connector in...

  • Estimated Install Time for Custom 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Reese custom installation kit # RP50064-58 will fit your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and install pretty much the same way as on the 2013 models. This kit is confirmed to fit the 2014 short bed and long bed models. The estimated professional installation time is 3 hours. For a person working at home who has not installed a kit before you are looking at 4 to 6 hours. Having a friend or two to help can shorten the time. I have linked instructions for you.

  • Is Sliding Hitch Needed for 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 Short Bed Towing Grand Design Reflection 5th Wheel
    There are definitely many cases when a sliding fifth wheel hitch isn't needed with short bed trucks like your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500. It's difficult to state outright though if one wouldn't be needed for your particular application, as it really depends on the particular trailer you are towing and the truck you are towing with. Because there are so many different combinations and trailer designs, the best you can do is take a few measurements to determine your cab clearance to see if a sliding...

  • Will Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitches Fit Universal Rails on 2009 Chevrolet Silverado
    The Reese Elite series is designed for underbed kits and does not fit into industry standard rails. If your brother-in-laws hitch just drops into the puck system in his bed then the hitch does not work with rails. There is not a Reese Elite underbed kit available for the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado. If your brother-in-law has the Reese 16k with tabs that fit into industry standard rails then you can get industry standard rails part # RP50064-58 to install in the truck bed. Since I am not...

  • Will RBW UHS-85 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Reese Above Bed Rails in a 1996 Chevy K3500
    RBW was bought out a while back and it is hard to find information on their hitches. If your hitch is the Lil Rocker then we know that it will fit in the Reese above the bed rails included with many Reese installation kits. For your 1996 K3500 you would need installation kit # RP30035. If you have a different hitch then you will need to take some measurements of its mounting feet to determine if they fit the slots on the industry standard rails. The Reese rails have 3 sets of mounting...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Base Plate Installation Kit for the Curt A16 Hitch on a 2012 GMC Sierra
    If your 2012 GMC Sierra has a 6-1/2 foot or an 8 foot bed then I recommend installing the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP50064-58 to add the base rails that you will need to install the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16120 in your picture. If you have the 8 foot bed then you will not need a sliding 5th wheel hitch. If you have the 6-1/2 foot bed then you will want to install the Curt R16 Round Tube Slider # C16560 with your A16 5th wheel head instead...

  • Recommended Base Rails for 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
    For your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500, I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails # RP50064-58. This will enable you to install your Reese 16,000 LB 5th wheel hitch in the back of your truck. The custom base rail kit is designed specifically for your Chevy so no drilling into your frame is required. One thing to keep in mind is that if you have a plastic lining inside your truck bed you will need to cut that out to properly install base rails. If you have a spray-in liner...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500HD
    Yes, the fifth wheel rail install kit part # RP50064-58 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 so it would work well for you. The included rails of this kit are compatible with some RBW hitches (like the lil rocker) so it could work well with your hitch too. You would need to compare the rails to the ones in the picture I attached. I attached an install video for this rail kit for you to check out as well.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Chevrolet 2500 HD with Diesel Engine
    We have several custom install options for the 2007 Chevrolet 2500 HD pickup, see link. The installation kit is the same whether you have a 2007 classic body style, a 2007 new body style, a 6-1/2 foot bed or an 8 foot bed. Your truck should be capable of towing a fifth-wheel trailer with a gross trailer weight of 6,500 lbs when loaded and ready to tow, but you should check your vehicle owners manual or with the Chevrolet dealer for information specific to your truck. I would recommend...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short Bed
    For your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short bed, if you have the 6-1/2 foot bed then I recommend a sliding 5th wheel hitch for turning clearance. If you have a 5-1/2 foot bed, then you will need a fixed hitch and a Sidewinder pin box for turning clearance. Let me know what trailer you are looking at if this is the case and I'll be happy to assist. For a 6-1/2 foot bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50064-58....

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Positioning in 2003 GMC Sierra Short Bed
    The installation instructions for the standard 5th wheels hitches (by Hidden Hitch, Draw Tite and Reese) indicate that the front rail needs to be placed 47 1/2 inches from the lip or end of the truck bed (before the tailgate). These instructions for the 2003 GMC 2500HD short bed truck are available for your review on on line and are guidelines only. Actual installation is the responsibility of the installer and the owner. Always measure the truck and trailer before installing the hitch...
