2002 Chevrolet Silverado - Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches

  • Reese
  • Above the Bed
  • Custom

Heavy-duty, custom brackets dramatically reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Outboard design ensures simple access to mounting points. Brackets, 10-bolt base rails and hardware included.


Features:

  • Installation brackets mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for 5th-wheel rails
  • Base rails sit in truck bed and allow installation of 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • Fast, simple installation with outboard design
    • Extended-length base rails allow for mounting farther out from truck frame
      • Avoids underbed components for easier access
      • Cuts down installation time by more than half compared with universal kits
    • Custom brackets mount to existing holes in truck frame, minimizing drilling and measuring
  • Thoroughly tested kit is compliant with strict Society of Automotive Engineers guidelines
  • Kit includes brackets, 10-bolt rails and Grade-8 hardware
  • Compatible with B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley 5th-wheel hitches
  • Sturdy, black powder coated steel resists corrosion


Specs:

  • Base rail dimensions: 48" long x 1-7/8" tall
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Reese's outboard installation kit for your fifth-wheel trailer hitch was designed with safety and convenience in mind. Just like the original custom mounting brackets, these brackets install using existing holes in the truck frame, minimizing installation time. The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended-length rails. These above-bed rails are 5 inches longer than standard, universal fifth-wheel rails so that they will match up with the mounting points on the brackets, which sit below the bed and outside of your truck's frame. The result is a much simpler installation process, wherein most underbed components can be easily avoided. Because you are working outside the frame rails, you also have easier access with your tools and more room to work, making the whole process less of a pain.


The base rails included in this installation kit feature a standard 10-bolt design. Each of these rails attaches to the underbed brackets with two carriage bolts at both ends. A single bolt is used in the center of each rail to further secure it in your truck bed. The result is a set of base rails that remains firmly in place thanks to 10 points of contact.


This entire installation kit is built to be SAE J2638 compliant and has been extensively tested per specified accelerated-life-cycle criteria for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The requirements for testing are based on the European-style test of 900,000 cycles, making this testing process among the most thorough and intensive in the industry.

The bed rails fit nicely & are made of a good sturdy brand of steel & look good in the bed of my truck. The quick installation 5th wheel brackets are much easier to install than the older style brackets. Would have given them 5 stars but, these quick install side brackets do not work with the Air Lift air bags without modification to the top brackets of the air bags. 483319

The hitch and mounting kit work fine for hauling my fifth wheel. The drilless mounting kit did not look like it fit correctly, the numbers and product were correct for my truck, I decided to install several bolts making it a bolt on kit. The overall assembly ans installation was a bit time consuming and needed two people to help move the parts and keep it true, but a year later and it still slips in and out without any issues. The mechanics of the hitch are still funtional and there is little to no play with in the hitch after thousands of miles used. Overall it is a hitch and preforms great. Downside is the weight of the unit making it impossible to SAFELY move with one person. 268564

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


The kit arrived within a few days-very happy about that. very easy to install. the directions were clear and pictures good. I went to the trouble of using a sharpie to mark the part numbers on everything before I started just to keep to all straight. I would note that on the 2017 F350 diesel the only problem bolt was on the driver side inline with the DEF tank. long skinny arms with flexible wrist is ideal (not what I have). I would also suggest taping the shims onto the outboard frame brackets to save yourself some frustrations. otherwise they are difficult to get and keep in place, especially on the driver side. the two nuts that go inside the frame tube come on/with a nice handle although a bit light on the wield. here again save yourself and tape the shims on before you try to insert two things into that hole, align and fasten the bolt-by yourself. I used an extension with wobble head and socket to turn the bolt while holding the nut "assembly" in place. I did remove the rear wheels and fender well liner-a must. Lastly, great customer service on the phone. Pleasant and patient answering questions. Wayde C - Montana 356688

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


The hitch install kit is a good product. It took about six hours to install because my installer had never put this kit on the new Ford with the aluminum box before and he wanted it to be right. There was some issues with the fit on the frame. Little things like welds not ground down and getting it to fit tight to the frame of the truck. He was able to fix all of the issues with out any problems. Just a little longer installation time is needed to insure a proper fit than we expected. Overall, a good product. I would buy this hitch installation kit again, and I do recommend it. 480261

Very easy to install. Measure twice, drill once. I used every piece of galvanic corrosion tape to protect the aluminum bed in the kit, probably could have used a little more. Even though I painted the edge of the holes after drilling, maybe some sort of insulator could be used there also. 543657

    I'd be happy to help with that! If you don't already have a fifth wheel hitch in mind, I'd recommend the Pro Series, part # PS30119. The hitch features a two piece jaw that holds the king pin very tightly which greatly reduces chucking and jarring. For frame and bed rails, I'd recommend the Reese # RP56007-53. These are the outboard brackets and rails you mentioned. No drilling is required to mount the frame brackets. You'll also want to mount a 7-way trailer connector in the truck...

    The 5th wheel install kit you referenced, Reese # RP56007-53, is not a fit for the 3500 series; it fits only 1500 and 2500 series trucks. The custom-install kit for your 3500 is Reese # RP50064-58. I confirmed with my contact at Reese that this kit will work on your crew cab diesel dually. I have linked a video showing installation of this kit in a 2005 Silverado as well as the written instructions. I have also included an article on 5th wheel install tips.

  • What is the Purpose of the Center Bolts on the Rails of a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit
    The center bolts for the rails in a 10 bolt 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit like # RP56007-53 help stabilize the rails, limiting any movement and it makes them less likely to get out of square or bow up in the middle. They are not supporting much if any of the load. The side bolts that attach to the under bed brackets are doing most of that work. I have included links to the installation instructions for this kit for you to view.

    If your 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab has a 5-1/2 foot bed, the best option for towing a 5th wheel trailer is with a fixed hitch and a Sidewinder King Pin. This is because a standard sliding hitch will not provide enough clearance when making sharp turns with your truck. Starting with the hitch, I recommend looking at the Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch # PS30119 along with the Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP56007-53.
