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.

Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - RP56017-53 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard installation kit for the fifth wheel trailer hitches. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty Trucks without the factory rail kit. On a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website. Use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application.Now these installation brackets, right over here, will mount beneath your truck bed.

They provide attachment points for the fifth wheel rails. The base rails is what will sit in your truck bed, and they allow the installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. Now this kit is a fast, simple installation. It has the outboard design.The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended length rails. These above bed rails five inches longer than the standard universal fifth wheel rails, so they'll match up with the mounting points on these brackets, which will sit below the bed, and outside of your truck's frame.

This will help avoid under bed components, for easier access. It cuts down your installation time by more than half, compared with the universal kits.These custom brackets will also mount to existing holes in your truck frame, minimize any drilling and measuring. This is a thoroughly tested kit. It is compliant with the strict SAE, which is the Society of Automotive Engineer guidelines. The kit will include everything shown here on the table.

For this video, I've installed the install kit to the rails, just to show you what it looks like installed.The kit will include the custom brackets, the 10-bolt base rails, all the Grade-8 hardware, with instructions on how to install everything. It also includes these galvanic isolator strips, which will help prevent corrosion between the steel mounting rails, and your aluminum truck bed. These rails are compatible with B&W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches. They are a sturdy, black powder coated steel, which will help resist corrosion.A few specs on this, the base rails are going to be 48 inches long, by about 1 7/8 inches tall. That should do it, for the review on the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard installation kit for the fifth wheel trailer hitches..

The quick install hitch brackets took me about 4 hours to install and everything went in easy. It threw me off having to isolate the steel rails and brackets from the aluminum truck body with clear tape. 476651

Priduct is awesome but directions are so, so. Because of the aluminum bed “stickers” are supplied to place between steel and aluminum. But illustrations are difficult to understand. Love etrailers videos but they need to do one on a F250 aluminum bed. Many more parts and spacers compared to steel bed. 510628

Ask the Experts about this Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel Installation Kit?


  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 for Reese Hitch
  • You'd want to go with a set of custom install Reese fifth wheel rails/brackets for your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory rail kit. The part # RP56017-53 is an outboard kit which means it the brackets mount to the outside of the frame rails making it a bit easier. Downside is a slightly bigger rail and higher price. The inboard kit part # RP50074-58 is your other option. You'd get a lower price and smaller rails but a more involved install. Since you have tapered nose trailer...

  • Comparison of Curt and Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Bracket Kits for a 2017 Ford F-350
  • Essentially the install brackets kits that fit your 2017 Ford F-350 accomplish the same thing. And when you compare the Reese # RP50074-58 and the Curt # C16428-204 they even install in the same location. They're custom kits so they use existing holes in your truck's frame. So you don't have to drill into the frame. With that being said, there is a second Reese kit, part # RP56017-53. This kit is an outboard install which means the brackets install on the outside of the frame rails....

  • Difference Between Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kits for 2017 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • Both the Reese fifth wheel rail install kits are a fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed without the factory rail kit. The difference is that the part # RP56017-53 costs a little more, installs much easier since the frame brackets mount to the outside of the frame, but also gives you a larger rail in the bed of your truck. The part # RP50074-58 on the other hand costs less, gives you a smaller rail in the bed of your truck, but will be a bit harder to install since the brackets mount...

  • Distance of Fifth Wheel Install Location on a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Reese Quick Install Bracket, part # RP56017-53 installs its rear bar at 29-1/8 inches away from the rear of the bed, compared to the rear bar being installed at 29-1/2 inches for part # RP50074-58. You likely won't have much difference in the hitch position between these two kits. Keep in mind that this distance is measured from the rear of the truck bed. I've included and labeled images from their instruction manuals so you can get an idea of how the rest of the system installs.

  • Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2017 F-250 Super Crew with 6 3/4 Bed
  • Since you have a Keystone trailer with the Turn Max technology you don't need a slider at all actually. Manual or automatic slider would not be needed. With fifth wheel hitch you actually don't really need them to sit higher than the bed rails of the truck. It's actually the opposite in nearly every situation that the hitch sits below the top of the bed rails. The pin box of the truck extends down far enough to compensate for that. The Reese fifth wheel hitch part # RP30047 is a similar...

  • Which Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fits 2018 Ford F-350 with Dually Axle
  • I checked with Reese and for the 2018 Ford F-350 dually models you have to use the outboard fifth wheel rail kit part # RP56017-53 like you mentioned. The inboard rail kit part # RP50074-58 does not fit dually models.

  • Moving a Reese Sliding Hitch to a new 2017 Ford F250 Short Bed Truck
  • For your new 2017 Ford F-250 Shortbed, I recommend either of Reese's custom fit mounting kits, part # RP50074-58 for the inboard version, and part # RP56017-53 for the outboard version. For both kits, you'll end up drilling into the bed of the truck only, however both kits use existing points in the frame to install. The outboard version, part # RP56017-53 is easier to install, as its entire mounting process takes place outside the frame, making installation a breeze because of...

  • We can help you with a new 5th wheel install kit for your existing Draw-Tite hitch that will let you mount it in your 2017 Ford F-350 4WD long bed without the factory rail kit. The part you referenced, Reese Elite Adapter # RP30156, is only required for trucks that DO have the factory-installed pucks in the truck bed. The adapter provides the equivalent of standard above-bed rails and accepts all brands of 5th wheel hitch. If you have the 4 pucks in the bed then you do need this part,...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-350
  • I apologize for any confusion, but the correct fifth wheel rail kit for your 2018 Ford F-350 long bed, 4WD is the part # RP56017-53 which means that if you only wanted the brackets you'd want the part # RP56017 but you'd have to have the larger outboard style rails.. You'll need new hardware for the rails too as part # 58164 as well since fifth wheel rail hardware is considered one time use.

  • Installing RBW Lil Rocker in 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Lil Rocker fits into industry standard base rails, so if your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty has the factory rail kit, you would only need the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156. Should you not have the factory rail kit, you would need to install the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56017-53.

These are the 43 inch long rails, so you don't need the longer rails based on your truck. We don't have just the brackets available for this model year yet outside of the kit.

  • The Keystone Cougar Xlite 29RES has a tapered nose which means you will not need a sliding 5th wheel hitch or rotating pin box in order to allow for turning clearance on most short bed truck. In order to tow this trailer with your 2017 Ford F-250 with the 6-3/4' bed, I recommend using the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30047. This hitch has a 16,000 lb weight capacity which will give you a good margin of error, a four way pivoting head which will make hooking/unhooking on unlevel...

  • Does Reese Fifth Wheel Base Rail Kit Include Hardware for Aluminum Bed on 2017 Ford F-250?
  • The first thing to note is that Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit # RP56034-53 is not a fit for 2017 Ford F-250's, it is a fit for the '17 Ford F-150. If you do have a 2017 F-250 the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit # RP56017-53 is the correct kit. Each of these kits will work with your aluminum bed because they come with galvanic isolator strips that are placed on the bottom surface of each rail so no additional hardware...

Even though Husky doesn't have any base rails that will fit your 2017 Ford F-350 as of yet, there are other options that are compatible with this 5th wheel hitch.

The hitch and rails can be reused but you'll need a new bracket kit to attach the rails to your truck frame. For that you'll want the part # RP56017 plus the hardware kit part # 58164 and you'll be set. Or for the entire kit you'd want the # RP56017-53.

  • Why are the Reese Outboard 5th Wheel Rails Taller than Regular Rails for a 2017 Ford F-250
  • The newer, taller rails such as those in 5th wheel installation kit # RP56017-53 for your 2017 Ford F-250 make it easier to pin in the hitch and work better for taller bed sides in newer trucks. The shorter rails such as those in kit # RP50074-58 are only available in the standard length. To compensate for the height difference you can lower the hitch (on most 5th wheel hitches) and/or raise the pin box on the trailer (if it is not already at the highest setting).
