This fifth-wheel trailer hitch features a 4-way-pivoting head to provide a full range of motion for easy trailer hookup. The fifth wheel can be easily removed by one person - simply remove two pins and two clips.

The fifth-wheel head securely grabs your trailer king pin with a rounded-slide-bar, single-jaw mechanism. The slide bar offers excellent load management and a smooth ride.

The rounded slide bar is operated by a 3/4" diameter handle with a cushioned grip that makes slide-bar operation more comfortable.

Pro Series Square Tube Slider profileTurning with and without Pro Series Slider

Square-Tube Slider

This fifth-wheel trailer hitch includes a square-tube slider that offers 10" of travel in your truck bed. This enables your vehicle to make normal turns during low-speed maneuvers and in narrow spaces without fear of your trailer's contacting the cab of your vehicle.

The slider increases the space between the cab and the trailer to allow for greater turning clearance, moving the hitch and trailer king pin 10" closer to the tailgate of your truck. For highway towing, the slider locks the fifth-wheel hitch in place between your truck cab and the rear axle.

To activate slider: Stop truck and trailer. From the side of the truck, unlock the hitch from the towing position by pulling the handle. From inside the cab of the truck, manually activate the trailer brakes with the brake controller and slowly pull the truck forward until the slider locks into place closer to the tailgate. Make sure that the slider is locked, then maneuver your rig.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Fifth Wheel PS30129 Review

Today we're going to review part number PS30129. This is the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Square Tube Sliders and the Rails and installation kit. It has 15,000 pound weight capacity. This is a sturdy and reliable 5th wheel hitch at a very affordable cost. This slider hitch is perfect for short bed trucks because the slider will allow this hitch head to move 10 inches closer to your tailgate to give you increased turning clearance. The square tube slider allows that vehicle to make normal turns during low-speed maneuvering in narrow spaces. It will increase the space between your cab and your trailer, which allows for that greater turning clearance.

Basically, what you can do, is when you're ready to maneuver, like you pull in to a park and you're going to disconnect from your 5th wheel, when you go to position it in to position you need to make some sharp turns in some narrow spaces, you can let this slider hitch go 10 inches to the back, closer to the tailgate of your truck. That will give you that increased turning clearance between the trailer and the cab of your truck. Then, when you're done camping and you're ready to get back on the road and you want to hook up your 5th wheel, you go ahead and hook it up. Then, what you do is let the slider, slide the 10 inches closer to the cab and the rear axle and then, it locks in to place and you're ready for highway towing. It has a rounded slide bar single-draw system right here that will automatically latch around the trailer kingpin. This will offer improved low-management and ride when compared with similar models. The head, if you notice, it goes front to back and then, the plate goes side-to-side, so it's a full way pivoting head.

This helps with trailer hookup, even on uneven ground. Also, the head gives you adjustable hitch height adjustments. Basically, this cross member, when you attach it with the bolts to the legs, there's 4 rows of holes, so you want to choose the correct row that'll get you at the correct hitch height. The hitch height is from your truck bed to the top of the plate here. You want to be able to match your specific trailer's height as close as possible. It give you those 4 different adjustments to make. Also, what's nice about this, the design of this 5th wheel hitch makes it easy to install and remove, even if you're by yourself.

All together it weighs quite a bit, but if you take it apart, it makes it very simple. You pull these 2 clips and these 2 pins out. You can lift out the hitch head. That'll leave the cross member on the slider legs. What you can do is pull the pins for those slider legs and then, you can lift the cross member and the slider legs off, also.

Then, it's all clear of your truck bed. On the slide bar right here, you'll notice there's a handle. It has a nice cushion grip on it for a good grip, comfortable jaw operation. There's a tab on the handle with a hole it then, there's a tab on the hitch head with a hole on it that line up and you can use this included padlock once you're hooked up to your 5th wheel, run your padlock through there, lock it in to place and it'll lock the 5th wheel to the hitch. I did mention, this comes with the 10-bolt rails. As you can see, I've already installed it in the rails just to show you. It comes with the universal install kit with the hardware. Now, it comes with the universal kit, but we do like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, putting your year and model vehicle in, and if they do offer a custom fit or vehicle specific install kit for your vehicle, we do highly recommend to use the custom fit version because it'll cut your installation time in half because it will use existing holes in your frame of your truck already. We do sell that separately, if you want to go that route. We do highly recommend to do the custom fit version. A few specs on this. The gross towing weight capacity is 15,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 3,750 pounds. The slider travel amount is 10 inches, front to rear. The hitch height adjustment, if you go in the top hole, it'll start at 13 inches; the hitch height from your truck bed to the plate. If you go to the bottom hole, it'll go 17 inches. You have a range of 13-17 inches. Thickness of the skid plate is 1/2 inch. What I want to show your right now is first, how the hitch head will operate. What you'll do to hook up, you just pull this handle out and when you get it out far enough, pull it back towards the cab of the truck and it will lock on a little cutout right there and keep it open. Then, when you go to hook up, . I want to show you an example of when you hook up. This is a kingpin. This is what will be on your pin box of your 5th wheel trailer. When you're backing your trailer in here, the kingpin will slide in here. It'll unhook that slide bar and you can see, once it gets all the way in correctly, that bar will slide across and hold it in to place. Then, the holes line up. All you have to do is unlock your pad lock, put that through there, lock it and then, nobody can open that handle so, your 5th wheel is locked to the hitch. The other thing I wanted to show you the operation of is the slider. This handle right here on the side will control the motion of your slider. There's a color coordinated label here on the side. It'll tell you, when it's in the middle position, it's red. That means it's unlocked, so it can go either forward or backward. I'll try to move it for you now. It works best when it has weight on it. It's hard to move sometimes. Yeah, it'll move a little bit to show you. What you want to do, when you're going back to your tailgate for maneuvering position, you pull the handle towards you, so when it goes this far . Actually, when it has weight on it and it's sliding that way, once it hits the cutouts for that, it would automatically fall in to the lock maneuvering position. Now, you're 10 inches closer to the tailgate, gives you more clearance from the cab. Once there's weight on it, this would pop in to place and lock. Then, when you're ready to tow back on the highway, push this in to the unlock position. Then, as your backing, it'll slide towards the cab. Again, once it gets to the tow position, it would automatically, with the weight on it, click it and lock in to the lock position for the towing. It's simple as that. That should do it for the review on part number PS30129. The Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Square Tube Sliders and the Rail and installation kit. It has a 15,000 weight capacity. .

The instructions are not very clear for assembling this. There were some extra pins I did not use. Also the main support bracket that the king pin receiver sits on seems to not bolt level but it did not affect the hitching up at all. I tried installing a bed saver bracket but it would not bolt on level with out some drilling so i bagged that option. That being said, I am very happy with this hitch. I installed it in my 2011 ford f250 short bed and the sliding feature is nice. I don't mind getting out of the truck to pull the lever to make it slide. Hopefully I won't need the sliding feature but like many have said, it is a good thing to have if you get into a situation that needs this. The price on this was much cheaper than a side winder pivoting king pin box i was considering. This comes with a complete kit but I would highly recommend getting a truck specific fifth rail kit like I did to make the install that much easier. I will be selling my old rails, the new universal brackets and fifth wheel hitch to offset this purchase price. E trailer thanks again for having great products. 284903

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • Comparing Jaw Types on Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • In regards to fifth-wheel hitches, there are a number of jaw types. A slide bar jaw is found on the less expensive hitches, such as the Pro Series # PS30129. This type of jaw is a secure one for your trailer but you will notice some king pin noise and some chucking as the fit is looser. This design will automatically close around the king pin once it is in place where the double- and single-jaw models will not. The double jaw design is more snug and secure than a slide bar jaw and you...

This is a custom install kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling.

  • Can a Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch be Used on 2012 Dodge Ram with 5.5 Foot Bed
  • The only way that a fifth wheel hitch can be used with a 5.5 truck bed would be to use a Sidewinder Replacement Pin Box. The Sidewinder replaces the OEM pin box on your fifth wheel, and changes the pivot point between the vehicle and trailer from the point where the king pin locks into the hitch 22 inches rearward to the point where the pin box attaches to the fifth wheel. In most cases, this provides enough clearance so that 90 degree turns can be made without the fifth wheel loft striking...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer be Towed with Slider Hitch in Rear Maneuvering Position
  • The reason it is not advisable to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a slider hitch in it's rear (maneuvering) position is indeed for concern with the trailer's weight distribution. The pin weight of a 5th wheel trailer needs to be centered just forward of the tow vehicle's rear axle. If the trailer were to be towed with the hitch in its rearward position the trailer pin weight would be behind the rear axle and cause the front end of the truck to lift up. This condition is dangerous as it means...

  • What Position Should the Slider Hitch Be In When Hooking Up Fifth Wheel
  • A fifth wheel slider hitch should be in the tow position (not slid towards the tailgate) when you are hooking up to a fifth wheel. That position is used for general and highway towing. A slider should only be slid back (maneuver position) when making tight maneuvers, like around a narrow campsite, and not for general towing or hookup. A fifth wheel slider hitch will lock in both positions. I am including a link to a FAQ page on fifth wheel information.

  • The rail kit that is included with the Pro Series Hitch part # PS30129 that you referenced is basically just the part # RP30035 which I attached a link to the installation instructions for you to check out as well as an install video. The included hitch by itself is just part # PS30094. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit Instructions for 2014 Silverado 1500 Short Bed
  • The installation kit included with 5th wheel hitch and installation kit # PS30128 is actually Reese universal installation kit # RP30035. I have linked the installation instructions for you. But with a short bed truck like your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 6-1/2 foot bed, you will want to use the slider version, # PS30129, to be able to make tight turns without hitting the truck and trailer together.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit for 2002 Toyota Tundra Limited 4x4
  • We can help you with a 5th wheel installation kit to let you mount the 5th wheel hitch of your preference. For your Tundra I recommend the industry-standard Demco universal base rail kit # DM8552009-71 because this kit includes all the under-bed hardware and brackets needed to install a 5th wheel hitch. Install instructions are linked. Custom-fit installation kits are not presently available for your truck. Also a helpful article is linked to assist you with your installation.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Rail Placement in a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD New Body Style Short Bed
  • Always good to hear from someone who was in the business. I will be happy to help you get the measurements for the 5th wheel rails in your truck. For a 2007 Chevy Silverado New Body, short bed, you will actually be measuring from the rear edge of the truck bed (not tailgate). Measure forward from the rear edge of the tailgate 25-1/8 inches. This is where the back edge of the rear rail will be. Once you have it centered side to side you can use the 5th wheel hitch to locate the front...

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 3500 without Rail Kit
  • The Pro Series Fifth Wheel Kit part # PS30129 is a universal slider hitch and rail kit. I checked with Reese and they don't recommend the universal rail kit that came with your kit for the 2016 Ram 3500. Instead they have custom fit kits that are a fit and would work best. Since you have the rails already all you would need is the bracket kit part # RP50085 and a new hardware kit part # RP58430 since the hardware that comes with rails is only good for one-time use.

  • Can Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Be Lowered to Lowest Height Setting
  • A hitch like the Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch # PS30129, because it has a slider base, will not adjust down to its lowest head height setting. This is true for many 5th wheel slider hitches. If your same head assembly were installed on a fixed hitch base then it would be possible to lower the head height to the lowest setting. You also referenced the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram trucks, part # RP30154, which allows any industry-standard hitch to be mounted in a Ram that has the...

  • Will Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch and Install Kit # PS30129 Fit My 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 with 6 Ft Bed
  • Yes, the Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch and Universal Install Kit, # PS30129, will fit your 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed pickup. If your truck has overload springs, you will also need the Reese Mounting Bracket Kit, # RP58186. The use of the Mounting Bracket, # RP58023, for Dodge Ram trucks is optional but will ease installation and save you time. If you are concerned with ease of installation, a custom install kit would definitely be the way to go. The 15K Fifth Wheel Hitch with Custom...

  • Can a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • First, since your truck bed is shorter than 6 feet, you are going to have to use a fixed 5th wheel hitch in the truck and a Sidewinder replacement pin box on the trailer. The Sidewinder moves the pivot point on the truck back 22 inches so you can make tighter turns without hitting the truck cab and trailer together. Even with a Sidewinder, if the trailer is wide enough you might not have all the clearance you will need. The other issue is that Sidewinders only fit certain pin boxes....

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed and Sidewinder for Leland 7910
  • First, when all is said and down you will need to have at least 5 or 6 inches from the tops of the bed sides to the bottom of the trailer overhang. It sounds like there is plenty of adjustment for height so that shouldn't be a concern. A Sidewinder will be able to adjust vertically like the OEM pin box and the hitch you choose will also be height adjustable. For a Leland 7910 pin box Sidewinder # ST400-SW19K is correct. It is rated for 19,000 pounds. On any hitch you have the potential...

  • Does the Pro Series Slider Automatically Lock Into Different Positions When Activated
  • I spoke with my contact at Pro Series and he informed me that once you unlock the slider on your Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch # PS30129 it will re-lock itself automatically once it has slid into the maneuver position from the tow position, and vice versa. So basically, if you need to go from the tow position to the maneuver position you will unlock the slider and pull forward until the slider locks itself into the maneuver position where it will lock itself. And then to go back to the...
