Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

  • 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, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer 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.

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit to Fit 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short Bed
    You'll need a new rail kit for your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 but you can use your Reese Kwik Slide 15k hitch that you already have still. You'll need the rail kit part # RP56015-53 which is an outboard style rail kit for your truck.

  • Will Pullrite Superglide 2700 Fit Reese Rail Kit # RP56015-53 For 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The Pullrite Superglide 2700 hitch is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails like what the Reese kit part # RP56015-53 you referenced provides. So if this is the hitch you have then this rail kit will fit and work well. Some of Pullrite hitches will only fit their rail kits so you'll need to verify for sure what hitch you have.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit that Fits 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I am sure Curt will eventually have a fifth wheel rail kit that fits the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 but at this time (June 2019) only Reese has a custom fit kit with the part # RP56015-53 that you referenced. The great news is that Curt hitches can fit into these rails so if you have a Curt hitch currently (or any other brand designed to fit standard rails) this rail kit will work well with it.

  • Reese 5th Wheel Installation Bracket/Rail Kit for 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The Reese 5th wheel hitch install kit you've looked at, part # RP56015-53 is indeed a fit for your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500. It is compatible with the 6-1/2 foot bed. If you don't already have a 5th wheel hitch, I'd recommend the # RP30083 from Reese. The hitch features a one piece jaw that grips the king pin super tight for a superior ride and round tube sliding rails that won't bind up on uneven terrain like the square tube ones can. I've linked to a product demonstration video for...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommend 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short Bed for Pullrite Superglide 2700
    The Pullrite Superglide 2700 is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails so all you'd need is a kit like the Reese custom install kit part # RP56015-53 which is a fit for your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and you'd be set. This is a custom install kit too which means the install time would be much shorter compared to a universal kit and there would be no frame drilling.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit that Fits 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
    The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 changed quite a bit so the fifth wheel rail/bracket kits from a 2011 would not transfer to the new truck. You'd have to go with a new rail kit from Reese as the part # RP56015-53. This kit will fit your Curt Q Series hitch though!

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit that Fits 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.75 ft Bed for Use with Curt Hitch
    For your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.75 foot bed we do have a fifth wheel rail kit you could use with a Curt fixed hitch like the B and W rail kit part # BWRVK2504. This is custom fit for your truck and provides the standard rails you'd need with a Curt hitch. The hitch you'd be using would need to be an A16 hitch part # C16120 as the the Q series is not compatible with Sidewinders. The wedge you'd need to use with it and the Sidewinder is part # RP31016.

    For truck beds that are shorter than 6 feet like on your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 5-3/4 foot bed you have two options for towing a fifth wheel trailer and preventing truck cab to trailer nose interference. You can use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide hitch part # DM8550040 as it's only slider hitch that moves back 22-1/2 inches to give you clearance with the install kit part # DM8552034-71 or you could go with a fixed hitch like the # RP30047 and rail kit # RP56015-53 and a Sidewinder...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2020 GMC Sierra 5 3/4 Bed
    If the plan is to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 you'll need to go with a slider as there isn't a fifth wheel to gooseneck solution that would give you the needed turning clearance since your bed is so short. So what you'd need is a rail kit like the part # RP56015-53 and the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550040 which is only slider hitch that will have enough clearance for your bed length. This actually slides automatically as you make tight turns too which allows...

    The only custom fit fifth wheel install kits we have available for the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 with 5-1/2' bed is the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit part # RP56015-53. The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16415-204 which is for a 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 will only fit models with the 6-1/2' and 8' beds. That said, both the Curt and Reese options work with the same fifth wheels hitches so there should be no problem.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 6.5 ft Bed for Using Reese 16k Slider Hitch
    The Demco rail kit part # DM8551011 that you referenced is an underbed fifth wheel rail kit that fits your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 6-1/2 foot bed but there isn't a way to adapt it to your Reese fifth wheel hitch. You'd need a set of above the bed rails instead like the Reese part # RP56015-53 which is a confirmed fit or you'd have to go with a Demco hitch like the automatic slider part # DM8550022 which is designed to fit this rail design and automatically slides back as you make tight...

    The Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552034-71 has not yet been tested on the long bed of the 2019 GMC 1500 to confirm fit. Most of the time the frames are the same for those bracket fits, but they can't officially confirm until they have tested it. I checked around with other manufacturers and Reese confirms the fit of the Outboard rail brackets kit # RP56015-53 for all the bed lengths including the long bed....

  • Is Sidewinder Needed to Tow 5th Wheel Hitch With 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 With 5-3/4 Foot Bed
    Those are good questions, and you will need a Sidewinder to tow a 5th wheel trailer with your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 that has a 5-3/4 foot bed. For your Lippert 1621 pin box, you have made a superb choice with the 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin with Sidewinder # RP61422. This is going to give you the ability to make turns with your short bed 2020 Sierra 1500, and is going to be the most comfortable way for you to tow because of its cushioned spring.

  • Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    Since your Grand Design Reflection 150 Series 290BH has the Turning Point pin box, which is similar to the Reese Sidewinder # RP34FR, the manufacturer is correct that you do not need a sliding 5th wheel hitch, just a fixed hitch that is compatible with a rotating pin box. And for that, the best option is the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Double Pivot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM6076P-16K. The Demco Premier Series has a number of advantages over other hitches, starting with its jaw...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Mounting Bracket/Rail Kit for 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Assuming your 2020 Silverado 1500 doesn't have the factory puck system, I'd recommend the # C65KR bracket/rail kit from Curt. The kit provides the industry standard 5th wheel mounting rails that are compatible with your Reese sliding 5th wheel hitch from your old truck. Reese also offers a bracket/rail kit, part # RP56015-53, but the Curt kit I recommended is less expensive and would work just as well.
