Video Transcript for Trimming a Truck Bed Liner for Fifth Wheel Rails

Today we're going to cover a frequently asked question on how to cut out a bed liner for a fifth wheel installation. It's pretty easy, we'll measure for our crossrails just like normal and then we'll go ahead and mark out our bed liner. Measuring from the edge of the bed of the truck, not the bed liner, but the edge of the bed and measure out. We'll go do one side, we'll go to the other side and make a mark as well. Now those will be the marks that'll align our first rail way. We'll make sure that our rail is even from left to right.

We'll just use the ribs in the bed liner to align it with and then we'll just draw a circle all the way around the rails. Then next we'll go ahead and use the legs of the fifth wheel hitch to place our second rail and now this will put our rail basically in the right stop and we'll just draw an outline around it as well and then the next step is go ahead and remove the parts for the fifth wheel and remove the bed liner and we can go ahead and cut out what we need. Before we make our cut outs we'll go ahead and support the bed liner up in the air a little bit with a couple pieces of timber. We'll go ahead and drill some pilot holes for a saw we're going to use to make the final cut out. So lets take our saw and we'll trace on the outside of our line and just cut it out.

Alright, and from this point we can go ahead with the fifth wheel install as normal.

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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

I bought these quick install base rail plates instead of the universal fits all-fits nothing well angle plates that I had used on a different truck. Watch the video e-trailer has on line in the help section and the video is much better than the instructions that come with the plates. My install went just like the video except the truck was only 2 days old so I didn't want to drop the exhaust or the fuel tank. It was tight between the fuel tank and the bolts that hold the rails in the bed but do-able. The exhaust side was easier and I didn't have the exhaust tin shield like on the video but it was still tight but easier than the fuel tank side. Using the measurements like in the video ALL the holes lined up like through the bed like they were supposed to with out any reaming of the plates or brackets. The plates on the frame with the spacers worked great just like in the video and are worth the up charge of $$$ instead of using the universal angle supports. With my Silverado being only 2 days old I was not going to drill any holes in to the frame for any reason to have chevy void my warranty so these bolt on plates using exsisting holes were the nuts!!! I bought new bed rails for my fifth wheel as it would just have been to much of a pain to mess with the rusted bolts in the old truck. All the hardware was there, every thing was packed waaaay too good, and it all came fast. Who could ask for more Eric Horn

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Like a few of the other reviewers, I decided that the custom brackets for my 2005 Silverado 2500HD with 6 1/2 foot box was the way to go because I didn't want to be drilling and fitting the smaller brackets under there. Here's some thoughts. Yes, the spare tire really needs to come down - that took me about 2 hours, as I have never had it down before and had to keep referring to the instruction manual. Making measurements for the rail placement and drilling the holes in the bed was the easy part, as was using tip snips to remove a section of the heat shield underneath. The hard part was drilling the optional hole in the frame for the 1/2 inch bolt and fishing the bolt through on the drivers side (passenger side was an easy fish). I started with 1/2 inch hole for the 1/2 inch bolt - ended up drilling a 9/16 hole so the bolt would come through. Still, I do feel comfortable that this bolt provides extra security/rigidity to the brackets. The other hard thing to do was get the rectangular offset hole plate and lock washer attached to the rail bolts up by the fuel tank. Ended up hot gluing the lock washer to the plate because I was out of fingers to hold the pieces up there and thread the nut onto the bolt - ideally one would need to be part stretch armstrong and part contortionist. My total installation time was closer to 5-6 hours - but when it comes to something like this, I would rather be slow and thorough than fast and miss something. The kit contained everything needed and even a few leftover parts - so don't be concerned. Towed my new trailer home 2 nights ago and was pleased with the set-up and how it towed.

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.

I brought this 5th Wheel rail kit to a local Hitch Installation and Welding shop, and they installed it for me in one day. I brought the Hensley Trailersaver TS3 5th Wheel Hitch as well, so that the whole assembly could be line-up precisely as prescribed, with the center of the Kingpin at 1-5/8" forward of the truck drive axle center line. Great product by Reese, that fit my 2002 Silverado 3500 perfectly. Would recommend Reese products to anyone contemplating towing an RV/Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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.



- RP50064-58

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.

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.

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.

Easiest fifth wheel assembly I’ve ever installed. Only took roughly an hour and a half to do a complete installation. Very detailed instructions included with the kit. Definitely the way to go over a universal style bracket assembly. 2015 Chevy 1500 5’ 8” box.

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.

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.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 for RBW Little Rocker
    For your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 our rail kits like the Reese part # RP50064-58 are a confirmed fit for the truck and are the same rail design as what your RBW Lil Rocker is designed to fit.

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch, Part # 30051 and Install Kit, Part # 50041-6008 for 2005 Chevy Short Bed Pickup

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.
