Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - RP56034-53

  • Above the Bed
  • Custom
  • Reese

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.

Very patent in regards to them answering all my concern questions. E-Trailer knew exactly what I needed for my new Ford F-150 aluminum truck bed. If the product did not fit, there was no problem to return within 60 days. Delivery was on time. The tracking system was perfect. The follow up was great. The fifth wheel was installed by others, and I am very happy with E-Trailer. Thanks Guys!!!!

Outboard installation with custom mounts is the only way to go!
Save yourself alot of grief and remove both rear wheels to install. Instruction set is not quite writen to this particular kit. For the needed tool set they require a 1.25 hole saw that you never use. The cat wisker feed wires are fantastic, give that guy a raise for coming up with that idea. Forgett the little insulator squares they give you. Use heavy clear packing tape and wrap two layers on all spacers and the fingers of the custom mounts.

picked them up last weekend. haven't installed them but my other unit was for my 2013 Ford 1/2 ton and they were the over the rail brackets which I could not torque to 100 lbs.
these will be a no brainer to install.


Comments
working as prescribed it holds the 5th wheel toy hauler to the head stock and the head stock to the truck body. much better product than the original above the truck frame for torquing nuts.

Watch the video; makes the job more straightforward. Workmanship and quality were very good; I was dismayed to to find my parts package torn and missing a bolt. Took some real digging to find what turns out to be a very non-standard type of bolt (Grade 8 Carriage)... finally found one in a mechanics toolbox at a local trailer rental place as I needed it right away for a trip. Finally, after getting through my first installation, I could probably do it in 4 hours as there has been a lot of thought and engineering put into the custom kit. First time installers should expect spending more like 6-8 hours for the job.

Ordered a 5th wheel hitch and Quick-Install Mounting Kit per e-trailer recommendations. My ordered arrived promptly and the kit included everything I needed for the installation. Good instructions were included and everything installed very well.




by:
2017 Ford F-150

Installed on my 2017 F-150 Supercrew. Not a no drill install as sold but with a couple of tools it’s a 2 hour install at most. Local RV dealer wanted 1600 for hitch and install and additional 150 for the light plug. I got it all for Etrailer.com for 850 and about two hours later I saved myself a ton of money!

    I checked with Reese just now and for your 2021 Ford F-150 6-1/2 foot bed the only fifth wheel rail kit that fits is the part # RP56034-53. The other rail kit you mentioned does not fit your truck.

    For rail placement using 5th wheel installation kit # RP56034-53 on your 2018 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 foot bed you will first measure from the rear edge of the bed (not the tailgate) forward 28-5/16 inches. This is where the back edge of the rear rails will be. Then what you would do is get that rail into position and use the hitch, or just its legs, to locate the position of the forward rail. The back edge of the front rail will be approximately 22 inches forward of the back edge of the...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-150 for Installing Older Reese Hitch
    Sounds like you are referring to a fifth wheel rail kit that fits between the wheel wells which is what the hitch attaches to. For a rail kit you would need the part # RP56034-53 but since your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed your trailer will need to have a Sidewinder installed on it. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2015 Ford F-150 with Short Bed
    We have a number of 5th wheel trailer hitch options available for your 2015 Ford F-150 short bed. If you have a 5-1/2 foot bed, the best solution is to use a fixed 5th wheel hitch and use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer. A Sidewinder pin box moves the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches to provide the needed clearance between the cab and front of the 5th wheel to make turns. If you have a 6-1/2 foot truck bed you need a sliding hitch. The sliding hitch is necessary for a 6-1/2...

  • Are Reese 5th Wheel Rail Galvanic Isolators Required on 2017 F-150 with Spray-On Bed Liner
    A sprayed-in bed liner on your 2017 Ford F-150's aluminum bed will serve the same isolating function as the galvanic isolator strips supplied with Reese 5th wheel rail kits like # RP56034-53 so you will not need to use them above the bed. But you are 100-percent right that you will still need to use them below the bed where the uncoated aluminum is exposed.

  • Does Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit RP56034-53 Fit 2022 Ford F-150 and Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Yes, the Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP56034-53 is the correct fit for your 2022 Ford F-150 and is also a fit for your Pro Series fifth wheel hitch as well. This is the outboard style of rail kit that has brackets that attach to the outer sides of the truck frame instead of the inner side which is why the rails are longer at 48 inches compared to what you had previous. The outboard style rail kits are much easier to install but the rails are a little longer.

Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have know in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once you figure...

You would have to go with a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer with a stationary hitch (or slider hitch left slid forward) to be able to tow a trailer. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer...
