Pro Series Fifth Wheel - PS30857

Sturdy, 2-piece jaw provides a more secure connection than slide-bar models. Floating head allows for full range of motion, making hookup and disconnect a snap. Square-tube slider supplies greater turning clearance. Base rails sold separately.


Features:

  • 5th-Wheel hitch with slider mounts in your truck bed so you can tow your 5th-wheel trailer
  • Dual jaw provides more jaw-to-king-pin contact than slide-bar models
    • Secure connection means less jarring and chucking
  • Square-tube slider allows for required clearance for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds
    • Prevents trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during sharp, slow-speed turns
    • Slides smoothly with 4-roller design
  • Floating, 4-way-pivoting head provides full range of motion for easy hookup, even on unlevel ground
  • 4" Vertical adjustment to match your trailer's height
  • Lockable handle has cushioned grip
    • Padlock (sold separately) inserts through the tab to secure your trailer to the hitch
  • Sturdy, black powder coated steel resists corrosion
  • Base rails and installation kit sold separately
    • Works with industry-standard, above-bed rails - Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden-Hitch, Husky, Pro Series, Reese and Valley
    • Simplify installation with a vehicle-specific bracket kit (not available for all applications)

  • Vertical load limit: 4,000 lbs
  • Slider travel: 10"
  • Hitch height: 14-1/4" - 17"
  • 10-Year limited warranty


Note: This fifth-wheel trailer hitch will not fit pickups with beds shorter than 6'. It also will not fit trucks with flareside/stepside beds.


Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Pro Series Dual Jaw

Unlike the more economically priced slide-bar models, the rounded, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin. The result is a safer, quieter ride with far less chucking and rattling.



Fully Floating Hitch Head

The floating head on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch pivots front to back and side to side, offering a full range of motion for quick, simple hookup and disconnect, even on unlevel ground. This pivoting ability provides a smoother, more comfortable towing experience as well. Because the head is able to move in unison with your trailer while it's hooked up, you will notice less jarring than you typically have with a more static hitch head.


Square-Tube Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6-foot beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

I installed the adapter for my 2015 Dodge 3500. It was a tight fit and worked very well. The only issue would be in the adjustments. It would be great if there were allen slots or even straight screw driver slots in the hold down pin so adjustment could be made without guessing and taking the adapter in and out to test fit. Also, it would be great if the release arms were shorter so that they can be released with the fifth wheel attached. Etrailer did a wonderful job not only getting me the part, but communicating with me through the process. I will definitely be using them again. Thanks guys! 223842

Installed my hitch last night (9/22/15) . I couldn't have been more pleased . Everything was bright and shiny. The hitch was not all defaced. The instruction sheets were excellent. The one thing that I was really pleased with was the shipping info I received which was letting me know every spot it went to almost immediately. I am also very pleased with the price I paid. No one came close. Thanks a million. I haven't pulled my camper yet but I had a 15k and this is far superior. Can't say enough about it. 227240

I bought this as a kit with the custom frame rail parts and bed rails for my 2000 Ford F350. I was pretty amazed at the fit of all the parts. Following the instructions, the frame rails fit like a glove and every hole lined up between the above and below the bed parts without any tweaking, filing or hammering. The video on etrailer was helpful and the written install instructions easy to follow. I opted to remove the berliner completely since cutting it would leave areas where water and debris would get under it and that would not be good for the health of the bed. It fits nicely under the tonneau cover so the bed will stay dry when not towing. 137650

I was unaware it was a slider and the instructions were not real clear on how and when to use the features In the tow position, moving forward I am still unclear on how tight I can make a turn, and concerned about causing damage to my RV. Had I been informed by the sales person I may have opted for an auto version. The shipping was on time and intact. I moved the vehicle in the maneuver mode backing and towing a few miles. I won't know for sure until I have more experience. 190234

Received hitch quicker than expected. The hitch looked good and fit in my f-250 nicely.

  • There are actually several hitches available now that fit directly into the 2016 Ram factory OEM prep package. There is also an option to use a special adapter if you already have a hitch or if you plan on getting a slider hitch (for short bed trucks). The hitches that fit directly are: # BWRVK3600, rated for 25K # C16545-16021, rated for 24K # C16530-16021, rated for 20K # C16520-16021, rated for 16K, dual jaw # C16515-16021, rated for 16K, slide-bar jaw You can also use adapter...

  • Recommended Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ford F250 With Ford Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Package
  • There are two available alternatives. You can use a 5th wheel hitch that's designed to drop right into the pucks, or you can use an adapter that sits in the pucks and provides industry standard bed rails for a standard 5th wheel hitch to attach to. First the puck mounts. If you have the short bed, you'll want to use a sliding hitch, like the Reese Elite Series Slider, part # RP30144 which will drop right into the pucks. The hitch has an 18K capacity. For a long bed truck, use the stationary...

  • Fifth Wheel Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 Short Bed Factory Rail Kit
  • Normally I would recommend the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550024 since it fits the factory rail kit of your 2017 Ford F-350 short bed since it slides automatically as you make tight turns which is a huge advantage. It also has height adjustability. The downside is that you have to be pretty straight when connecting since the head position dictates the sliding of the hitch. For a hitch that doesn't require the same straightness you would want the Curt Q24 # C16545-16020 which also has...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Silverado 2500 HD Short Bed
  • First, please note that a slider hitch is recommended for your 2015 Silverado 2500 HD with 6-1/2-foot bed unless a Sidewinder pin box is installed on your 5th wheel. If you do have a Sidewinder (or Revolution) pin box then you can safely use a fixed 5th wheel hitch. I suggest a custom-fit installation bracket kit. These reduce overall installation time and also avoid the need to drill into your new truck's frame. Universal kits cost a bit less but for a one-time effort like a 5th wheel...

  • What is the Maximum Towing Capacity for a 1993 Chevy C/K 3500 with 7.4 Liter Motor
  • I will be happy to help sort all this out. The maximum gross trailer weight for a 1993 Chevy 3500 series truck with the 7.4 liter (454) motor is 10,000 pounds. Everything else is lower. It depends on a few other factors such as if it is a 2x4 or 4x4, cab style, bed length. This information is straight from a GM document that covered all the capacities for all of their trucks for the 1993 model year. So, now all we have to do is figure out exactly what your truck is rated for and then...

  • Can Curt Fifth Wheel Clear Top of Bed on 2017 Ford F-250?
  • The Curt A16 # C16521 is going to give you the highest available hitch setting, though it still is not going to give you a 7 inch clearance over the top of your 2017 Ford F-250's bed. If you need additional clearance to stay level, you would want to consider a king pin replacement; I've added a link to our page with all of our replacement king pins for you to take a look at.

  • Towing Capacity of 2013 Ford F150 5.0L 8-Cylinder for 5th Wheel Towing
  • The surest way to determine your F-150's towing capacity is to check the door jamb sticker on the driver's side. You will want to find the GCWR (gross combined weight rating). GVW is curb weight plus the weight of passengers and cargo. You will subtract the GVW from the GCWR and the difference will be your towing capacity. You can also check with your local Ford dealer who can look up your truck's VIN to confirm its specific equipment and resulting towing capacity. In all cases the auto...

  • Will a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Demco 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter DM6140
  • Any trailer hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails will fit in the Demco adapter # DM6140. Most hitches will fit in the slots on the rails that are spaced 20-1/2 inches apart on center. Any hitch that mounts on 10 inch centers (side to side) will NOT fit. I recommend using a slider hitch such as # PS30857 which can slide back 10 inches to provide more clearance when turning. But, if you have a B&W Turnover ball hitch (hitch is what adapter # DM6140 fits) then I recommend...

There should also be a gross trailer weight rating which is the most a trailer can weigh when loaded and ready to tow. The pay load should be how much weight you can put in the truck bed.

A slider hitch will give you the clearance you need for making sharp turns. Between the two I suggest the Curt hitch since it offers more slider travel.

  • With the pucks in the bed of your 2013 Ford F-350, and with the 5th wheel wiring, you have the factory under bed rails installed. When you have a short bed on your truck, it is recommended to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch. This helps avoid contact with the cab of the truck when making turns. For your truck I recommend a 5th wheel system like the Pro Series Fifth Wheel, part # PS30121. This is a sliding 5th wheel that will move the hitch and the king pin 10 inches closer to the tail gate,...

  • Which Reese Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit Fits a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese, and in addition to the # PS30857, you will need Universal Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit with Rails, # RP30035. If your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 has overload springs, you will need an additional bracket kit, # RP58186. The 5th wheel hitch you referenced is a slider and is for a short bed. If you have a long bed, you can use a regular, fixed type 5th wheel, # PS30855, and the same installation kit. If your truck bed is less than 6 feet long,...

  • Installation Kit For Valley Fifth Wheel Hitch Slider For 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Valley has gone out of business, so they do not have frame brackets available that will work with your Valley base rails and you will need to replace the whole installation kit. For a kit that fits all models of the 2015 Chevy Silverado you can use Reese universal kit # RP30035. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right. This kit will accept any hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails, including your Valley slider hitch. I also recommend adding...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • For your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2 foot bed, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56001-53. These rails will be a much easier installation using custom brackets and rails that are slightly longer. These rails will fit industry standard hitches from Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley as well as Demco. The shortest hitch I recommend for your truck is the Pro...

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit For 2006 Ford F-350 With 6-1/2 Ft Bed
  • For your 2006 Ford F-350 truck with a 6-1/2 ft bed, you will need a sliding fifth wheel hitch. The PS30093 hitch you referenced could cause issues with clearance between the trailer and cab of your truck when making tight turns. I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part # RP50082-58 for your truck. This is a custom kit designed specifically for your truck and requires no drilling of the truck frame. This kit would cut...

  • Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Short Bed
  • I will be happy to help you select a 5th wheel sliding hitch for your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed. First you will need an installation kit. I recommend a custom installation kit because you will not have to drill into the truck frame for installation so it does not take as long to install and installation will be easier overall. The most popular custom install kit is # RP50066-58. I have included links to the instructions and a video showing installation for you. For your...

  • Will the RBW X-16 5th Wheel Hitch Fit on a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab
  • The RBW X-16 fifth wheel hitch will transfer from a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 to your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab as long as the base rails in your 2010 Ram are standard above-bed base rails. If you do not already have base rails installed in your truck, then you could install the Reese Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, # RP50142-58, which is compatible with your RBW X-16 fifth wheel hitch. This kit includes industry standard base rails, but also has vehicle specific mounting brackets...

  • Is a 17 Year Old Reese 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Safe to Use
  • A 5th wheel hitch that is 16 to 17 years old could have a lot of wear but it depends on how much it is used and how well it is maintained. If the hitch is in good working order with no signs of metal fatigue such as obvious stress marks, bent or broken parts, and the moving parts work fine then you will be fine to keep using it. But if you have any doubt about the hitch then I would say it is time to go ahead and replace it. For a good 16K hitch that won't break the bank I recommend...

  • Will Custom Fit Under Bed Brackets Fit Pro Series Universal 5th Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ram 2500
  • The rails that are included with universal install kit # RP30035 for Pro Series 5th wheel hitch # PS30857 are the shorter rails. The brackets, # RP56009, are designed for the new, longer rails # RP30153, so they would not work together but there is something that will work. You could use brackets # RP50054 for a 2015 Ram 2500 and the rails that come with the universal kit or just get the whole custom kit with the brackets and rails # RP50054-58. I have included a link to a video showing...

  • Can a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Short Bed Tow a 1989 Wilderness 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The towing capacity of the 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 is up to 8,000 pounds depending on how it is equipped based on a towing capacity guide for 1999 vehicles that I was able to find. If you look at the placard on the door jamb of your truck it may list the exact capacity. If it does not then it should less the gross vehicle weight rating and a gross combined weight rating (GVWR and GCWR respectively). If your subtract the GVWR from the GCWR the difference is the towing capacity of the truck. In...

  • 5th Wheel Towing Capacity of 2007 Toyota Tundra CrewMax Cab
  • I suggest you check your owner's manual to confirm your Tundra's towing capacity since this can vary a lot based on engine, drive train bed length and whether any tow package upgrades have been installed. I think the 1475-lb figure you found may be a payload capacity, not a towing capacity. I reviewed an online edition of the owner's manual for the 2007 Toyota Tundra and on page 581 there is a Towing Capacity chart for the CrewMax cab version. I have linked that chart for your reference....

  • Play Between King Pin and 5th Wheel Hitch Jaws on Pro Series 5th Wheel Slider Hitch
  • Are the jaws of the hitch fully closed around the king pin? If not then the hitch probably needs to be lubricated according to the manual which simply states "Use engine oil to lubricate pivot points of moving parts within the hitch." If you are using a lube plate instead of grease between the ling pin and hitch skid plates then make sure it is 3/16 inches thick or less and that it is at least 10 inches in diameter such as # RP83002. If these things do not help then inspect the king...
