Video Transcript for Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Today in our 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1300, we'll be installing the Reese Quick-Install custom-based rails installation kit for 5th wheel trailer hitches, part number RP50064-58. Here's what our rails look liked installed. As you can see, they don't take up very much space of our bed at all. They sit relatively flush with the bed so they won't take away from any of our cargo space, especially if we're putting plywood or flat items in the bed of our truck. These rails are constructed of a durable steel construction and have a nice high-gloss black powder coat finish, so they'll give us many years of rust free and corrosion free service. These rails will allow us to attached 5th wheel heads, or gear inaudible 00:00:43 adapters, or any other in-bed accessory that's designed to work with a rail system. We started our installation by removing our spare tire. Once you have your spare tire out of the way, there's this heat shield on the passenger side over the exhaust. It's held in place with several T25 torque screws.

We'll go ahead and remove those. From this bolt right here, you can't get to it with any socket. We're not going to be reinstalling this heat shield. What we can do is just cut around it as best as possible and just take it off that way. We use a pair of tin snips for that. Okay, with that cut off now, want to work on heat shield one out. We have our front rail position in our bed based upon the appropriate measurements for our bed length.

Make sure you follow the instructions exactly so you can place your front rail in the right spot, depending on your bed length. Now, we'll mark and center-punch the holes that we're going to be using. We'll use the center hole towards the rear of the front rail. We'll use both of our outer holes on both sides. All right, with all of our holes center-punched, we can slide our rail out of the way now. We'll drill them out with an 1/8" drill bit.

Now on our driver's side ones we want to be careful we don't drill down too far because our fuel tank's right below. With our holes drilled, we'll slide our driver's side frame bracket up in position and make sure our holes line up. We'll do the same process on the passenger side. You can see how the holes line up on our passengers side bracket, driver's the same way. Now, we can enlarge all our holes to the final size diameter of 9/16ths. I'll be using a step bit for this.

You can use a drill bit. Whatever you have available. All right, now that our hole's drilled, it's a good idea to take some spray paint and paint the inside edges of the holes so you don't have to worry about any rust from forming. We have a spray-in bed liner, we'll just use some flat black. Make sure you get it nice and good. We'll let that dry. We'll do the same for the other ones. Now, our rail will cover this up so we won't see the discoloration. Once it dries, since it's flat black, it will blend in nicely. Now we'll take our 3.4" diameter pull wire, insert it into the hole just behind our jounce stop, right here. We'll route it towards the rear of the vehicle. Make sure we go over this tube here and we'll pull it out a hole inside the frame. Here it comes over the tube and the frame. We'll slide a large, flat washer on, drop it over the tube and we'll thread on our bolt to the pull wire. We'll push that on it. We'll grab our pull wire now. Make sure our bolt is in the right location. Take our frame plate, put our pull wire through this upper hole towards the back. Make sure our pull wire stays in that hole and doesn't get pinched and we'll pull the bolt on through. Let it rest on there for right now. Take off our pull wire. Slide on another one of those large, flat washers, a lock washer and we'll thread on a nut. With that loosely installed, we'll install our front hardware now. Now, our front hardware will go through this upper hole here, next to this raised section, and the hole directly below it. We'll have one of these plates here oriented like this, between our frame and our bracket here. We'll have a second one on the inside of the frame. We'll secure with the 5 1/2" long carriage bolts. One on the inside of the frame and one between our frame and our bracket. We have our bolt inserted on the bracket. We'll slide our other bracket up between the bracket and the frame. Push up on the main bracket and slide it over in the right position and push the bolt through. Okay. Good. Just like that. With the bolt pushed through our frame bracket, just slide on a flat washer, a lock washer and we'll throw on a nut, loosely. Now we'll do the same for the bottom bolt. Go to the upper hole, push it through all the brackets and we'll slide on our hardware from the outside. Now with both of our frame brackets loosely installed, we've slide our rail back into position. We take one of our U-shaped blocks here. We'll slide it between our rail and our bed. Do the same on both holes here, actually. On the driver's side, we'll be using the button heads here. That would be allen holing them with a washer. We'll drop those down, do our rail and do our bracket down below. For our center hole, we'll just use a standard carriage bolt. Drop down. For our passenger's side, we'll use two more of the blocks and two more of the carriage bolts. Now, we'll go underneath and install some nuts. For our middle bolt here, we use a 1/2" conical tooth washer with the teeth facing up towards the bed of the truck and we'll throw it on a nut. We'll loosely snug that down. Now we'll take one of our offset spacer blocks here for round hole. We'll install it onto our bolt here. We'll get a 1.2" lock washer on it. I'll just snug that down by hand. We'll do the same for this one here. Okay, with this nut started, we'll do the same on the other side. With our front rail loosely tightened down on both sides, we'll take our unassembled 5th wheel head and place it onto our rails, so we can get the proper spacing for the rear rail. Okay. With that in, we'll make sure it's nice and square. Now, we'll use our center punch and mark the center spot for our holes. We'll be using the front one in the middle. Now, for our rear rail, we'll be using the second from the out . the ones next to the outer on both sides. We'll just center punch these and we'll drill them out. We'll also be using the Ford center bolt hole. We'll do the same with that. With our pilot holes started, we'll remove our rail and drill them out to the final size for all 5 bolt holes. Then, we'll put our spray paint on, like we did on the front. Do the same for all the 5 holes that we drilled. Take our rail and we'll place it over the holes and we'll drop down our two outer bolts. Now, these are the ones that are next to the outermost, on the rear one. We'll place our unassembled 5th wheel head back on our rails to help set everything up and to help hold it down. Now we'll go underneath and install our appropriate hardware. We'll slide our spacers, the U-spacers in, around our bolts to our frame panel there. Do the same on the other side. We'll put our offset spacer on here. A lock washer and we'll thread on our nut. Do the same for the other side. Now, we'll snug down all of our 3.4" hardware that attaches our rails to our frame brackets. We're using a crow's foot on our 3/8ths torque wrench, in order to tighten these. We'll just torque them to spec. With all four of those done, we'll do the same on the other side. Now, we'll torque our frame brackets to our frames, following the instructions. Now, we'll tighten down the big 3.4" nut. We'll torque the big bolt now. With all our frame hardware tight on this side, we'll do the same on the driver's side. Now, we'll torque our two final bolts underneath. With all of our hardware torqued, that completes our installation. The only thing left to do now is to reinstall our spare tire. That completes our installation of the Reese Quick-Install custom-based rails and installation kit for 5th wheel trailer hitches, part number RP50064-58 on our 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

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. 565367

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! 39310

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 .

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. 639844

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. 549979

The product is working as I expected. The sun and weather has taken its toll on the paint, but that to I would expect. Great kit overall.

I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50064-58 which has custom brackets to make the installation easy.

  • 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...

    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.

But the headache the custom fit rail kits allow you to avoid is worth the money. The part # RP50064-58 would be the way to go and it is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500.

    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...

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...

    Your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 is capable of towing a fifth wheel trailer. Your trailer's overall towing capacity will be the weight of the trailer it can tow. The trailer's pin weight does not factor into the bed's pay load either. Email me back with the bed length of your truck and I'll get you all setup. But in the mean time if you have a long bed truck you'd want a fixed hitch since you don't need a slider for turning clearance. So for that the Reese Hitch Part # RP30047 would...

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch, Part # 30051 and Install Kit, Part # 50041-6008 for 2005 Chevy Short Bed Pickup
    I would recommend the Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch with Slider, part # 30051 as well as the vehicle specific installation brackets, part # RP50064-58. The hitch will be more than enough to handle the weight of your trailer, and the install brackets can cut up to 50 percent off of the install time when compared to using a universal 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.

  • Installing a Fifth Wheel Hitch on a 2005 Chevy Silverado
    Assuming that you are using the RP50064-58 install kit from Reese the install involves to main components. First, the brackets. The brackets attach to the frame rail below the bed. The other main component, the rails, sit in the bed and bolt the brackets, through the bed, below. I have added a link to a video of this kit being installed on a 2008 GMC Sierra that will provide a much clearer visualization of how the kit is installed. I have also included a link to the instructions below...

  • What Rail Kit Do I Need to Use the Reese 30046 Hitch on a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    Yes, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # RP50064-58 is exactly what you need to use the Reese 15K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 30046 on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. However, according to my research the Reese 15K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 30046 is a fixed 5th wheel hitch and since you have a short bed truck, you will need to use a sliding hitch to obtain sufficient clearance for sharp, 90 degree turns unless you are also using a rotating pin box or your...

  • Custom 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for Pullrite Hitch in 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
    A custom install kit that fits your 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with a 6-1/2 foot bed is part # RP50064-58. I've linked a video of the install as well. Your Pullrite hitch will fit just fine in these Reese rails as long as it's designed for industry standard rails. There are different models of Pullrite hitches and some of them are for the standard rails and others are for rails that are specific to Pullrite hitches.
