2004 Chevrolet Silverado - Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches

  • Above the Bed
  • Reese
  • 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 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.

I have always had great service from etrailer, have not installed hitch yet but all packaging was in good shape and all parts and hardware are included. If I have any problem I'm sure the people at etrailer will be there as they have been with my orders in the past.

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.

Product worked good but was a lot harder to install than I thought. My install kit was missing a couple of washers from the rail kit, other then having to run those down things went well. Everything works as it should and I'm happy.

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


The brackets arrived in a timely manner. etrailer had a short video which assured potential customers that the brackets would bolt on to my year Toyota but because I have an 8-ft bed and was reusing my existing hitch and rails, I still needed assurance the brackets would work for me. I corresponded by e-mail with etrailer on this question. The etrailer representative I was in contact with requested additional information about my specific hitch and rails which I provided and etrailer confirmed the brackets would work for me. This all happened in a matter of hours. etrailer gave very prompt, accurate service. I attached the brackets, both front and back, and followed the instructions on where to drill through the bed for the rearward brackets and the drill holes in the bed were aligned perfectly with my old rails. The same held true for the front brackets...although I had not cinched them down as they are somewhat (1/2 inch perhaps) moveable. I installed both rails with the hitch in place and torqued the rails down. then torqued the front brackets down. Clearances due to the frame members prevent getting a torque wrench on the front bracket bolts so I just tightened them as much as possible. One person can install the brackets to the frame. It takes two persons to install and tighten the rail bolts. All in all, service was good and the product was good.

The fifth-wheel brackets have performed flawlessly since installed a year ago.

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


Five hours to install; which included a half hour searching for the key to the padlock on my spare. E-Trailer linked me to an installation video which really helped. I took my time and measured three times before I drilled the bed. Installation is a lot easier with someone to hold the bolts from the top. I fabricated mounting brackets on my last truck, but these were worth the money and I didn't have to drill the frame! Good design and straight-forward installation. My only issue was the video didn't show one bolt install that secured the driver's side rear bracket to the bottom of the frame. I was going off the video only and wasn't using the written instructions. Make sure you go step by step using both. Also, some parts are clearly for a different application so there will be a few parts left over. My experience with e-trailer was awesome.

Very happy how soon the product I ordered was at my door step. 3 days after I ordered it. Put the base to my 5th wheel on my 2017 250 diesel sd took me around 5 hrs, would have been faster with 2 people. The base fit my husky 16k prefect when I done torquing all the bolts. Going to use this hitch to pull my 29.5 Durango EZ 1500.

We ordered a bracket kit for our new 2017 F350. It was needed to install our Reese fifth wheel. which we use to pull our RV. Product was on back order by manufacturer, however Delisa at Etrailer diligently kept us very informed with updates & shipping status. My husband & son were able to install in a couple of hours. Looks great, outstanding craftsmanship & over exceeded our expectations! We would highly recommend!!!!!

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


I installed the hitch and brackets myself and am very satisfied with the bracket kit. I’ve towed my fifth wheel about 6 k during the past year and am very satisfied. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.


Comments
I have towed my fifth wheel about 15000 miles in total since installing the rail and bracket kits. No problems to this point and don’t see any reason to think I’ll have any problems in the future. I have nothing but praise for ETrailer. The people are re knowledgeable and give good insight on the installation process. Many thanks

Never shop anywhere else except etrailer,,, every product I have ever purchased from them has been extremely user friendly and easy to install. I’m a novice handy man and even I can install their equipment with ease. I installed these 5th wheel brackets on my 2008 Tundra a year ago and after watching video and following the instructions, had zero problems installing them! Thanks again etrailer for your 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and support. You’ll be hearing from me again in the near future!

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


etrailer folks were awesome! I placed my order during the pandemic and some of the parts were on back order it took a couple of months to get everything together, normally I would have waited until things were caught up to place and pay for the order but these guys kept me in the loop via email. However I wasn’t to thrilled to see that the paint on the mounting brackets that I Oder was coming off and the hardware was rolling around in the box which also dinged up the mounting plates normally I wouldn’t care but I’m installing this on my brand new F250 so needless to say that I had to sand and repaint the custom mounting plates because you can see them in the wheel well. Other than that etrailer was awesome as well as the other parts that I had ordered! Thanks guys and gals

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


Super Pleased with etrailer's products AND personal service from their highly knowledgable staff! I went to a local hitch installation dealer where they attempted to find Item #RP50074-58 ( 5th wheel RAIL KIT for my new '19 F-250 SuperDuty). The installer tried numerous warehouses and distributors across the U.S. but no one had this part! He suggested that I do some further research via the internet on finding this part and wished me good luck IF I did. I began my search with no luck; the reasons being given me were due to the pandemic, few,( if any) people were working and even FEWER warehouses were stocking items! Just when I thought I had exhausted all search possibilities; I reached John H. at etrailer. He was extremely professional, knowledgable and helpful in assuring me that they did, IN FACT, have my part # IN STOCK AND could ship it IMMEDIATELY! Ordered it on the spot (Friday) and it arrived before noon on Monday! I'm EXTREMELY pleased w/ etrailer's quality products; their availability and the friendly service of their staff. John H. went above and beyond in making my purchase easy assuring me that my item would arrive as promised, complete w/ tracking info and a phone # w/ personal ext. if I had any further questions regarding my order. NOW.... how can ya beat THAT? ....YA CAN'T! Have done business w/ etrailer in the past and will definately continue to do so in the future.

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


What an interesting product to install. The mounting to the frame is easy. Getting the bolts through the bed and putting the nuts and washers on the bottom take a lot of patience. There is not a lot of room for your hands to fit between the bed and the frame. I took my spare tire down and I was able to sit under my truck that helped a lot. Bryan

    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...

  • 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.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for Reese Rails On a 2012 Ram 2500
    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit part # RP56007-53 (RP56007 + RP30153) will work with several different types of 5th wheel hitches as well as gooseneck plates. The one I recommend for a 2012 Ram 2500 is the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30075 because it has a dual jaw design which grips the king pin tightly therefore improves ride quality. It also has a round tube slider that lets you slide the hitch back away from the cab which will be needed for tight...

    The best base rail and installation kit for your 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic 2500HD is the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP56007-53 because it is a no-drill install and the base rails are longer than most which means they will attach to the brackets, which will also sit completely outside the frame of your Chevy.
