Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel RP30047 Review

Today we are going to review part number RP30047. This is the Reese Fifth Wheel Dual Jaw Trailer Hitch with a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This fifth wheel trailer hitch uses the two jaw locking system, which will provide more jaw to king pin contact than the economical slide bar models, it will give you less rattle and greater security. I am going to open up the jaws to show you the dual jaws. If you move the safety latch over, that will allow you to pull open the handle. When you pull open on the handle, there is a little notch that will latch onto the plate and it will hold the jaws open right here.

So you can see the dual jaws let me release it and you will see the dual jaw right here and they basically close and wrap completely around the king pin and give you less rattle and greater security. Now it does have the 4-way pivoting head, which will ease hook up on un-leveled ground. Basically you can see it move side-to-side and it also moves front-to-back. This one being brand new is pretty stiff, but it gives you 4-way movement. Now on the side, let me rotate this and I will show you on the side that, there is a height adjustment when you install the cross-member to the fixed legs, you will notice that there is four sets of holes that you can put the bolts through and basically you can get the correct height you need above your truck bed.

If you put the bolts or if you install the cross-member in the top bolts, that would be the lowest hitch height, which would be 14 1/2inches. If you put the bolts in the lower holes, that would raise it up to the maximum of 18 inches, so there is a 3 1/2 inch height adjustment that you can do above your truck bed. The installation on this hitch is very simple and the removal is also. The fixed legs as you can see right here flare out, so they do have a wide stance and they are a one piece leg, which will offer excellent stability. The finish on this is a black powder coat finish on both the legs and the hitch.

It will resist corrosion. This locking handle that I have demonstrated, does have a nice cushion grip on it and again just to show you how that opens, let me turn the handle push it down, so you will be able to see the dual jaws. You just pull open and it will latch into place and back your king pin in, fifth wheel king pin, release it and it will be around the king pin and just push down on your safety latch. You will notice that once you push the safety latch right here around the handle and push it down, it keeps the handle from being operated, which will keep the jaws around the king pin. There is a hole on the latch and a whole on the head and if you put a pin or clip through there or even a padlock, which is sold separately, for additional security that will keep it locked into place.

Now I am demonstrating this hitch on base rails, but they are not included with this part, they are sold separately. The rails and the mounting kit will be sold separately. We do recommend if possible using a custom install mounting bracket, because that will cut the time in half compared to a universal install kit. This hitch will fit the Curt, The Valley, The Draw-Tite, the Hidden Hitch and the Reese Space Rails. Again the gross towing weight capacity on this is 16,000 pounds. The vertical load limit on this is 4,000 pounds. The hitch height we mentioned is 14 1/2 to 18 inches and it comes with a five year limited warranty.The pin and clips that attach it to the rails will be included with the hitch. I just want to show you the rear of the hitch basically to show you the large pivot bolt. This head is installed on a pivot beam and its held in by this large pivot bolt with a pin and clip, so if you remove that pin and clip, you can pull that pivot bolt out and then the whole head and pivot beam would come out of the cross-member. Very simple installation. That should do it for review on part number RP30047.

Overall good experience, except the shipping. Not etrailer's fault, UPS separated the packages and the second one to arrive looked like it was drop kicked. The ramp on the plate was bent, and the black coating is cracked but I guess it will still be serviceable. Fit right in place of my prior hitch and I look forward to trying it out soon. Went from a slide bar to the dual jaw hoping to be rid of the chucking during stop and start up. 112340

Hitch worked as advertised and no more chucking during stop and start, smooth sailing with the new hitch!

Looks like this is going to be a perfect fit for what I need to pull my 2011 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8265WS, 5th wheel trailer with the Revolution pin box. Just had it installed & after many years of driving truck with a 5th wheel, I can tell this is a good sturdy 5th wheel & looks good too. 483311

Product just arrived and I haven't had time to install but I do have an issue with the way it was packaged. I read many reviews before ordering and some people had torn boxes and or missing parts. The box that the hitch head and parts bag was in arrived inrough shape. The parts bag was ripped open and loose fasteners were in the box and sticking out holes in the box. Luckily it seems that everything made it. I will confirm that when installing tonight. Reese needs to address this. Maybe a separate package for hardware? 505205

After getting the rear rail installed, I used the hitch to set the front rail. I worked perfectly. I can remove the hitch without any binding. This was a problem with my old hitch on my old truck that was installed by the service department where I bought my original 5th wheel trailer. This is basically the same hitch as I had before on my old truck and I had no problems with it after towing approximately 37,000 miles over 15 years so I expect that this hitch will give me the same service. 239363

Awesome product, etrailer was spot on with fast free shipping and a great website fitted to my 2014 Chevrolet 3500 Only recommendation is that unless you have the extra time and patience The RP50066-58 (56006) rail kit (with inward facing frame brackets) is not worth the savings. Too tough to get to the bed to frame bolts. Buy the RP56001-53 (56001) rail kit which has the outward facing frame brackets and is far more of a "friendly" rail kit to install. 485332

The hitch has worked as expected. I would expect nothing but from Reese. During our last trip the hitch started to creek so I removed the top and applied a little grease. This unit is working in conjunction with a Revolution king pin box on our 5th wheel. We are very pleased with this unit for our application. Etrailer has been our go to place for many trailering items. I would recommend them overall for customer and product performance 330037


Comments

Wow, thanks for the product follow up. We have used the Reese hitch a lot this past year traveling out west into South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado etc. Hitch has worked perfectly. For a while I did take advantage of the RVs revolution hitch but found that it was to stressful on the hitch and more difficult to connect to the hitch so I have gone back to a standard 5th wheel configuration. etrailer is my go to supplier for RV stuff unless I have an emergency and need to act on a failure immediately.Anyway thanks for the follow up. Everything is working well here. Just trying to keep warm

I got this one to replace my Economy slide bar model. The slide bar has issues with uncoupling if there is any pull pressure on the the trailer after you level it up. That happened at two places we go regularly so I moved on to this model. It tows great, no bumping and banging around since it has constant 360 degree contact with the trailer hitch. We love it and it will unhitch on a hill if you ever want to. 278167

Received product by UPS. Two of the three packages were intact however the package that the fifth wheel top plate and frame came in were ripped open. Fortunately all contents were there. Suggest these pieces be shipped in a sturdier box, maybe double thick. Other than that, Reese hitch looks very strong. Will be installing it today. More to come. 435544

I received the order really fast. I have not actually done an inventory of all the pieces but think I received everything.

I installed the custom rail kit and topped it with this hitch. With about 2k miles on it, it works fine. It has a positive lock when the jaws are closed. It lined up with the rails I installed perfectly. Although this is my first fifth wheel hitch, I am completely satisfied with it. 31890

Ask the Experts about this Reese Fifth Wheel


  • Can A Fifth Wheel Trailer Be Used with a Ford F-150 Supercrew 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate if you would...

  • Some Guidelines for Choosing Fifth Wheel Hitch for Fifth Wheel Camper with 9000 lb Dry Weight
  • I would recommend choosing a fifth wheel hitch with your future needs in mind. All fifth wheel hitches do the same thing, retain the trailer king pin. The differences between hitches amount to their weight capacities, the features offered or the method of mounting to the truck. The lowest capacity hitch we offer is a 15K, like the Pro Series, part # PS30093 (or RP30094 for a 6-1/2 foot bed truck.) Either hitch would work for you as your trailer is unlikely to weigh more than that when...

  • Comparing Reese, Pro Series, and CURT 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • Reese is a leader in the towing industry and we sell more Reese hitches than any other brand. It is height adjustable from 14-1/2 to 18 inches. The jaw on the Reese hitch is a double jaw style. This is a safe and secure style. Only the single hook is considered to be better. It has a double pivot head. The next step down is the Pro Series hitch, # PS30855. This is a very economical hitch aimed at the first-time 5th wheel trailer owner. It is height adjustable from 13 inches to 17 inches...

He did say to make sure that the pull pins that attach the slider to the rails are in correctly. You will want to make sure that they are facing out of the slider and are not underneath it. Otherwise you can get some strange noises and movement from it. I attached installation instructions for the Reese Square Tube Slider for Fifth Wheel Hitch,...

  • Recommended 5th Hitch and Pin Box for Towing Jayco Eagle with 2008 Silverado 2500HD Short Bed
  • I will assume that your 2008 Silverado 2500HD has the 6-1/2 foot bed. The pin box of a fifth wheel trailer is the extension that comes off of the underside of the trailer loft. The king pin that locks into the jaws of the fifth wheel hitch extends from the bottom of the pin box. I have edited a photo for you showing these parts. For a 6-1/2 foot bed, we typically recommend using a sliding fifth wheel hitch to provide the proper clearance between the front of the trailer loft and the...

  • Pros and Cons of 5th Wheel Hitch With a Slide Bar Jaw Versus a Dual Jaw Hitch
  • The difference between a slide bar jaw and a dual jaw is how tightly the fifth wheel king pin is held. Both do a good job securing the king pin, preventing it from coming loose. The Dual Jaw will hold the king pin much more tightly, preventing the king pin from rattling around in the pin box. Any movement of the king pin in the hitch jaws will be easily felt and heard in the truck cab. Every time the you brake or accelerate, if there's any movement in the hitch jaws-you're gonna feel...

If your vehicle is 1998 or older a universal installation kit, item # RP30035, will be needed.

  • The only way you can tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck that has a bed length shorter than 6 feet is to use a Sidewinder pin box replacement on the trailer to give you the needed clearance to make sharp turns. 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...

The slider is used to eliminate clearance problems between the truck cab and the fifth wheel trailer on slow speed turns. The Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30047 you have referenced is a fixed hitch and will not give you the clearance you will need to tow a fifth wheel with a 6-1/2 foot bed.

  • 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...
