Reese Double Jaw

Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Unlike the more economical slide-bar models, the rounded, 2-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.



90 Degree Wiring Harness

Simple Wiring

The included 90-degree wiring harness makes attaching your trailer to your tow vehicle a snap. With a 9' lead that can easily reach your truck bed and a 90-degree angled head that fits into tight spaces, this uniquely designed wiring harness is perfect not only for your new fifth-wheel hitch, but for gooseneck hitches as well. Simply tee the harness into your vehicle's factory-installed 7-way trailer connector, which is mounted under the bumper of your truck. The 7-way connector on this harness then mounts in the wheel well, right next to your hitch, for quick, easy hookup.

Video Transcript for Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2000 Ford F-350 Pickup

Today on this 2000 Ford F-350 pickup we are going to install part number RP50082-58 from Reese. Also our 22K Reese fifth wheel hitch part number 30033. The first step involves removing the spare tire and take it down temporarily so you have some access to work underneath the vehicle to tighten up the nuts and bolts. The second thing we want to do is go to the driver side of the vehicle and disconnect the the hanger that holds the parking brake cable. That will get reattached to the frame bracket when we install that. This is the back side of the nut that we just took off of the bolt so we will just pull that out of our way. What is going to happen is this is going to get sandwiched between the bracket and the actual frame of the vehicle when we reinstall it. The next thing we are going to do is go to the bed of the truck and we will put the first rail in and mark its location. As you can see here we have got the first rail in the bed of the pickup and what you need to do is measure from the edge that we see facing us towards the edge of the bed itself. Then we want to make sure we have the rail even left to right. 01:06

When we measure it left to right to center it there is a crease in the bed itself that makes a good place to start off from. At this point we are going to mark the locations where we are going to drill our holes out in the bed of the pickup. We are going to use this hole and this hole the two holes on the very outside of the rail in the frame rail and those are going to connect to our frame brackets underneath the bed of the pickup so we are going to find the center and then mark it. Just a quick trip back underneath the bed we are going to install a piece of wood next to this cross member close to the gas tank which is straight below so this will give us extra insurance that we do not damage anything else. We will just put that wood in there and then drill it out. We will start off with 1/ 4 inch bit and then after we have the holes marked and drilled we will enlarge those to 9/ 16. 01:59

We are going to use this square hole on the frame bracket. It is going to go straight into the frame like so and then behind that it is going to get this flat block, lock washer, and a nut. It is going to go through the square hole in the frame. We will install it into place and then we will go to the back side and install our hardware. We are just going to leave that finger tight and install the U bolt going towards the front of the vehicle. Next we are going to install our U bolt. It is going to wrap around the frame. Mostly with this bottom tab on the frame bracket and of course we will match this course with the same one on top and we will install our conical tooth washer and the nut. Now we are back over on the driver side. We are going to take that bolt that we removed earlier and put it right there and we are going to take our nut and just thread it on there. We are going to install the frame bracket just like we did on the passenger side and then we will reinstall our brake cable back on to this bolt. We are going to take the nut off and put this wire form over it on the hanger for the brake cable. Put the nut back on it and when you tighten it all down make sure this part of the form goes in this hole here. For now we will just leave that loose and that will be one of the last things we do. We are going to put our rail back in position, we are going to in our bolts and in some cases it hits the corrugation where the bolts goes through down in to the valley then we would need that spacer to go in there. Since it is right on the corner where it goes down we are going to use the spacer between the frame bracket and take up the space underneath the corrugation. 03:55

Try to slip that into place and make sure you do not crush the corrugation when you tighten the bolts down. We will put our hardware into place. The flat block first, then a lock washer, and then a nut. Repeat the same process back on the driver side. We have got our front rail mounted in loosely. Now take the bottom half of the fifth wheel hitch and use it to place the second rail. Make sure it is square and just like the front rail we will mark our holes, drill them out, and install the hardware. Next make sure the rails are square with each other. We are going to start off measuring from here to this edge in the bed itself. Get it equal on both sides and check diagonally to make sure we are square. Just like the front rail we are going to find the center of the holes, mark them out, and punch them and drill them. Take the fifth wheel back out, move the rail out of the way. Same as last time we are going to take our blocks and put them between the bed and this piece of the hat channel that way it does not get crushed when you tighten the bolts. Take the rail and put it back into place and put the bolts back in. Now set the base of the fifth wheel back in to place. Once you put it in here shake it around a little bit and make sure you can take it in and out easily. Then we can start installing the rest of the hardware on the two bolts and then we will snug them down hand tight and then we will check them again and tighten down all of the bolts. We have got them half way tightened. Give it a quick check. We are still good. Now that we have got them hand tight we can torque them as specified in the instructions. 05:58

Now we will start work on the U bolts themselves. Snug them by hand just like you did the other bolts. When they are tightened down evenly we will torque them to specs. One of the last things we have to do is tighten the bolt back in to that. Take the base of the fifth wheel back out. We have got two more bolts to install. We are going to install here and here yellow arrows. Just drill them out with 1/ 2 inch bit and the bolt in and tighten them up on the bottom and we will be almost finished. To make access for the hardware when we used the 1-1/ 4 hole saw and just went right through the heat shield just below it. First put in the conical tooth washer and nut. We have got our base rails installed on the vehicle now work on the hitch itself. In this case we are going to be using part number 30033 22K fifth wheel hitch from Reese. We will start off with the base and then we will install our hitch pins first. Next we will install these two brackets. These use a type of bolt that looks just like a wheel stud and it is going to into place for starters. Then when you tighten them down they will sink in. Those are going to get the lock washer and a nut. Do the same thing on both sides then we will torque those down as specified in the instructions. Next we will install our pivot beams. It is going to fit in the center and use two hitch pins and clips to install. Next we will install the head assembly itself and do the same thing. Same thing again, pin and clip. One more on the other side. Next install the handle. A hole here and here and you have to line them up. Install the cotter pin. Bend it down. Our handle is installed. Install the cover for the handle. With that, that finishes our install of part number RP50082-58 that is the rails and the quick install kit and also our 22K Reese fifth wheel hitch part number 30033.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Reese Revolution Pin Box And 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 6.5 Foot Bed
  • The Reese Revolution pin box will not work with the B&W companion that uses the gooseneck underbed hitch for the base. It puts too much force on the under body for that combination. If you want to use an underbody rail kit, I recommend the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30868 which can be used with the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 18,000 lbs # RP30142.

As for the spring, you'd need the Replacement Spring for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # 30776.

  • Recommendations for 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 5th Wheel Setup
  • The GMC integrated brake controller on your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 may or may not work with your EOH system. Previous model years have required an adapter like the HydraStar # HBA-CAM to function well together. The Pull-Rite Auto slide hitch will work in a standard bed of the GMC truck. You don't need a sliding hitch with an 8 foot bed, but you would with the 6-1/2 foot bed. For either bed size, I recommend the custom bed rails # RP50066-58 for industry standard above bed rails. ...

  • Comparing Curt and Reese 5th Wheel Hitches for Use with a 2012 Ram 3500 8' Bed
  • When it comes to choosing the best 5th wheel hitch everybody has a subjective opinion based on their experience and the experience of people they know or have spoken with. Most 5th wheel hitch manufacturers have good/better/best choices so if someone were to use a good option from Curt but a better option from Reese (or vice versa) that would influence their opinion. For example, when you input your 2012 Ram 3500 into our fitguide the first couple of options that pop up are from Curt...

  • American Made Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • We carry hitches that were made in America, though the Reese # RP30033 is not. I recommend checking out the Curt A25 # C16180, which is made in the USA, has a 25,000 lb capacity, offers full 360 degree king pin contact, and has an articulating head to make hooking up your trailer an easier process. It fits in standard above-bed base rails also features a handy 3-color indicator system which easily lets you know when you're ready to hook up, tow, or uncouple.

  • For your 2013 Silverado 2500HD with B&W Turnoverball, there is no simple solution unless you want to have a good quality but basic "non-automatic" sliding hitch like # BWRVK3400. This will require getting in and out of your truck to adjust the slide for turning, but is compatible with your current gooseneck hitch. Your two other options will require removing your gooseneck hitch and installing 5th wheel rails, because of the torque issues you stated in either case with the other options....

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails For 2017 Ford F-350
  • For 5th wheel rails on your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50074-58 which is a confirmed fit bracket and rail kit for your truck. 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. If you want the longer rails, you can get the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and...

  • Determining if Tonno Pro Tonneau Cover # TPHF-254 Will Clear 5th Wheel Hitch on 2019 Ram 2500
  • The Tonno Pro Hard Fold Fold Tonneau Cover # TPHF-254 referenced in your question is going to sit right on top of the bed rails of your 2019 Ram 2500. This means that as long as the top of your hitch sits under the bed rail line the cover will fold closed without an issue. If you have a hitch like the Reese # RP30033 that features a handle that sticks pretty far vertically you would likely just need to remove it when folding the cover down. If you can tell me what hitch you have...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails And Hitch For 1999 Ford F-350
  • The larger hitches use standard size rails the vast majority of the time. I do recommend using custom brackets versus the universal brackets for an easier install. For your 1999 Ford F-350, I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56005-53. This will give you the custom brackets as well as the longer rails for an easier installation. You can also use # RP50082-58. Both of these rail kits are compatible...

  • For your 2015 Ford F-250, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026-58. There is no drilling into your frame required with this kit because it utilizes holes already there for a custom fit. The above bed rails will require drilling, but the installation is easy knowing the rails are in the correct position. This kit will come with all the hardware needed for installation.

  • How to Upgrade from a 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch to a 20k Hitch
  • Yes, as long as you have a set of industry standard rails in the bed of your truck (see pic for more info), all you would need to upgrade to a 20k plus would be to replace your current hitch with one like the Reese 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30033 that you referenced. You will want to check the owners manual for your truck to be sure that your vehicle is capable of towing a trailer that weighs what you are planning to tow.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for Reese Revolution Compatibility
  • I reached out to my contact at Reese and confirmed that the Reese Revolution vhd-10K-22sw is a factory fit that is not offered in a replaceable option. Basically because of the smaller width and mounting style there is not a replacement with an aftermarket pin box. That unfortunately means there is not an air ride option for your trailer. If you are experiencing too much jarring or chucking, you may want to consider replacing your 5th wheel hitch. They recommend either the 16K # RP30047...

  • What is the Recommended Clearance from Top of Truck Bed to Trailer for a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The recommended minimum distance between the top of the truck bed side rail and the underside of a fifth wheel trailer is 6 inches. This is usually enough clearance to allow for roll and pitch when driving on uneven roads, dips or hills, but there may be some towing setups that require more clearance. If you think your trailer may hit your truck bed with it's current setup, then I recommend either raising the height of your fifth wheel hitch or lowering the pin box position on the trailer....

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 with Short Bed
  • The best complete system I can recommend for your 2015 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 foot bed, would be the Demco Hijacker Autoslide, # DM8550040. This hitch slides automatically while you drive to give you 22-1/2 inches of additional clearance for tight turns. It's design relieves you from getting into and out of the truck to operate a manual slider. It has a built in roller-and-guide assembly that allows for smooth, controlled, and automatic movement. This hitch would be paired with the Demco...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F350 with Air Bags
  • You have a couple options, but I cannot recommend you modify the mounting bracket of your air spring kit that you have installed. Instead the easiest thing to do would be to use a universal rail kit like part # RP30035. Universal kits typically fit with air bag kits better than custom install kits. The other option you have would be to use the # RP56005-53 that you referenced and then go with a different air bag kit that is confirmed to work with fifth wheel rails like the part # F2550.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Setup Recommendation for Towing 2019 Jayco 30.5CKTS with 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory rail kit the B and W Slider hitch part # BWRVK3670 will fit and work great. You won't need a capture plate either as that's for hitches that automatically slide back and this is a manual slider. It's hard to say exactly at what angle you'd need to have the slider slid back but most likely it will be any time you need to make tighter, parking lot type turns and when backing up. I do have another towing setup I think you'd really like....

  • Does Truck with 6-1/2 ft bed Have to Use Slider Hitch for Turning Clearance with Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • You will have to go with a sliding hitch to allow the trailer to make tight turns. For a trailer 8 feet wide the only bed length that's going to allow 90 degree turns without a slider is a stationary hitch. That being said you have two options. If you really want to use a stationary hitch like the part # RP30033 you can replace the pin box on your trailer with a Sidewinder and that will allow the clearance. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin...

  • Although we do not have any options to convert a factory prep kit for your 2017 Ram 2500 so that it is compatible with a 5th wheel hitch using the ball bearing locking system, I do have another solution for you. I recommend installing the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1384 which gives you only the the gooseneck system that you are looking for. This system uses a lever at your wheel-well to lock the hitch ball into place. I have attached a sample installation...

  • There are quite a few options for towing a 5th Wheel trailer with your 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab Dually. To determine the best hitch for your truck, it depends on the bed size. For a 6 foot bed, I recommend 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider, # RP30051. This is a 16,000 capacity hitch with a slider. I have included a link to the instructions below. We also have two 20K capacity hitches, part # RP30083 and part # RP30084. All of these hitches will work with Fifth Wheel Trailer...

There is not a Curt 5th wheel hitch taller than this. For a taller hitch to give you the height you need, I recommend the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Double Pivot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 21K # DM6076P-21K. This is a strong hitch that is adjustable between 16 and 19 inches tall. I've attached a video to assist. Another...

  • Your fifth wheel rails with the CMI stamped on them were manufactured by Curt, and will be compatible with Curt, Draw-Tite, Husky, Reese, Valley, and other brand hitches. They fit what are called industry standard hitches. For your 2008 Ford F-350, I recommend the Reese 22K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Wiring Harness # RP30033. This dual jaw hitch will give you the best king pin contact to reduce any jarring and chucking of your 5th wheel trailer. If you choose a different hitch,...

  • The Pro Series 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch is a very basic 5th wheel hitch that was discontinued. Most of the time chucking comes from a loose fit around the kingpin and unfortunately the only way to improve that is to get a hitch with better king pin contact as there isn't an adjustment you can make for this on your current 5th wheel hitch.
