Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel - Fixed 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.

I ordered on line. Very easy to do. Hitch arrived about a week later in good condition. I used a uTube video as a learning tool to install the hitch although instructions came with the hitch. Installation was very easy and fit the rails that I already had in the truck. Works as advertised. 295275

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

Got great advice about what Gooseneck hitch and wiring harness I would need for my 5 1/2' bed F-150. I got notice 2 hours after I ordered that it was shipped and it was delivered within 3 days. I just completed the install (took about 3 hours for everything). 200509

The product its self is good but there were no installation instructions for it so I had to find them on the net. I was a bit disappointed about that. and it says a 4 hour job, well expect a bit more time. 305170

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

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

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

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

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

I ordered the hitch above which I did receive it, I think in the future when items are ordered someone should call to make sure the customer has ordered everything they need, I swore this came with rails also, it arrived with none, leaving me in a bind for install living in a rural town with no suppiers. 327586

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

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

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

Comments

Reese is an American company, but the hitch is indeed manufactured overseas. For a fifth wheel hitch thats manufactured in the USA, Id recommend going either with Demco, which are manufactured in Boyden, Iowa or B&W, manufactured in Humboldt, Kansas.

I replaced a lower quality slider that introduced so much play during low speed maneuvers and braking/acceleration that it reverberated through the tow vehicle. Once we upgraded to a new fifth wheel with a MORyde Orbital pinbox (which is awesome by the way) we didn’t need a sliding hitch anymore. This basic hitch is perfect for our application and feels very tight. The only negative is that the release handle doesn’t always retract when backing the king pin into the hitch. Otherwise a great buy. And etrailer’s customer service is second to none (don’t ever order anything from camping world). 633897

Excellent choice for my 2017 F-150. Also I was able to keep out bed cover installed. Also purchased the base rail kit. Defiantly not a “no drill” installed as promised but all in all it will take you a couple of hours at most to install. 619159

Great, easy to use no frills hitch. I purchased this non-slider to use with my Rockwood 8301 5th wheel, because my camper came with the Reese Rovolution pin box. Matches up perfectly with my 2015 Chevy 2500HD shortbed! I've placed many orders over the years with etrailer and the products and service are top notch! Customer service is super knowledgeable and helpful should you need them. As a side note though, the folks that deliver these packages seem to go out of their way to be as rough with these packages as possible. 2 of my packages had been blown apart in transport and re-taped and I was missing some hardware as a result. Of course the people that brutalize these packages in transit could care less if your order is in tact or not, so go through your order thoroughly before you start installation! Can't thank etrailer enough for helping to get me replacement hardware in a jiff! 582119

I just used the Reese fifthwheel hitch to take my camper up to the mountains for my elk hunt and it did extremely well! It was very easy to use and I love the double jaw clamps. The only thing that I wish was different is that it would have been nice if it would have been delivered assembled. 573445

Was a little disappointed in the overall quality of the hitch, had to rework the latch to close easily, the decals had bubbles in them and would of liked all of the hitch to have been made in the USA.

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • How to Reduce Chucking and Jarring While Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Chucking and jarring while towing a 5th wheel trailer (or any trailer for that matter) is unavoidable because the trailer itself is not one piece with your vehicle. When your truck starts to move forward from a stop your trailer is still sitting static and so there will be a slight jolt; the same thing happens when you slow down. Since the front end of your trailer is connected to your truck, when your truck starts to slow down your trailer is still moving forward so it will give you a...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 for Reese Hitch
  • You'd want to go with a set of custom install Reese fifth wheel rails/brackets for your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory rail kit. The part # RP56017-53 is an outboard kit which means it the brackets mount to the outside of the frame rails making it a bit easier. Downside is a slightly bigger rail and higher price. The inboard kit part # RP50074-58 is your other option. You'd get a lower price and smaller rails but a more involved install. Since you have tapered nose trailer...

  • Will a Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Factory Prep Package in 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • The factory prep package for the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 is different between the long and short bed models so the hitches that fit each are not interchangeable. But what you could do is use adapter # C16023 which will fit the factory pucks in the bed and then use a fixed hitch in it such as # RP30047 for a 16K or # PS30119 for a 20K. Or if you want a hitch that will fit directly without the adapter it will have to be a slider hitch like # C16668. But if you have the clearance to make...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommend for 2016 Ford F-150 5.5 ft Bed Towing Trailer w Reese Revolution Box
  • The Reese Revolution is exactly what you need with a fixed hitch to be towed by a truck with a 5-1/2 foot bed like your 2016 Ford F-150. A slider hitch wouldn't give you the needed clearance and a slider hitch can't be used with a Reese Revolution so that's just bad advice all around. So what you'll want is fixed hitch like the # RP30047 and a custom rail kit for your truck like the Reese part # RP50087-58 and you'll be in very good shape with the Reese Revolution.

In your long bed truck you can probably install the B&W's arms either way. For the maximum clearance use the rear position so long as the king pin does not then sit behind the rear axle. If it does sit behind the rear axle when hitched you'll want to use the forward position. Trailer pin weight that is behind the rear axle will cause excessive sag and could...

  • In order to determine if a Sidewinder such as # RP61420 will allow you to perform a 90 degree turn with your 2016 Ram 1500, you first need to measure the distance from the center of your fifth wheel hitch jaw to your truck's Rambox.You will also need to know the width of the trailer you will be pulling. You can then use this formula to find out if you can do a 90 degree turn: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from center of 5th-wheel hitch jaw to Rambox in inches B = Length of Sidewinder...

But since your truck bed is 5-1/2 feet you still would need a Sidewinder as the added clearance is not going to be quite enough. Your trailer should have a Lippert 1621 pin box so the correct Sidewinder would be the part # RP61420. I'd still recommend verifying the pin box since you didn't mention the model of your Cougar.

  • Will Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Reese Adapter for a 2018 Ram 2500 with Factory Prep Package
  • Yes, Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30047 is indeed a fit for adapter # RP30154 for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system. Since your truck is a short bed though I do recommend using the slider version, # RP30051, unless your trailer was designed with a tapered front cap specifically for short bed trucks. As you know the slider travels back 10 inches for more clearance between the truck cab and trailer when making tight turns. I have linked some videos for you to check out.

Only lighter weight option will be for you to install a Sidewinder on your trailer in place of it's pin box and then go with a stationary hitch. 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 that will list the pin box number...

  • How Do Rubber Bumpers of Reese 30047 Fifth Wheel Hitch Install
  • The Replacement Rubber Bumper for Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # 30536, attaches to the head with a screw that gets pressed down through the top of it and then is attached on the underside of the head with a nut. I have provided links to the installation instructions for this item as well as a video showing how it is put together. You can see the installation of the bumpers at the 1:35 minute mark of the video. If you needed the screw and nut you could get a Replacement Fifth...

  • Sidewinder Pin Box Replacement Recommendation to Replace a Mor/Ryde SPB72-1621LD
  • Based on the part number you gave for your Mor/Ryde pin box it sounds like you have a pin box based on the Lippert 1621 pin box. Which then for the correct Sidewinder you would want the part # RP61420. Since your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed the Sidewinder pin box is exactly what you need to give you the turning clearance you'll need.

  • Towing 5th Wheel Trailer with 2018 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • I was able to pull up the online towing specs for your 2018 Ford F-150 and it looks like there is still a somewhat large potential range even within the specs that you provided depending on your axle ratio, drivetrain, and wheelbase. At the low end on your F-150 SuperCrew with the 3.5 V6 engine it shows a 5th wheel towing capacity of 6,500 pounds for the 4X4 model with a 145 inch wheelbase and the 3.55 axle ratio. At the high end your F-150 can have a 5th wheel towing capacity of up to...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit and Hitch for 2017 F-150 & Highland Ridge Open Range Light 5th Wheel
  • The 2018 Highland Ridge Open Range Light lf318rls has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 9,995 lbs and an unloaded weight of 7,895 lbs. According to Ford, your 2017 F-150 Ecoboost 3.5L Supercrew 4x4 has a towing capacity of 10,200 lbs. So, you won't have any problem towing this 5th wheel trailer. For your 2017 F-150, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50087-58 which is a custom fit for your vehicle. Then...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit to Tow 2017 Cougar Lite
  • As long as the trailer you plan to tow has a Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin box installed on it the Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50142-58 and the Reese hitch part # RP30047 will fit and work well. Since your truck bed is 5-1/2 feet in length the best way to get the needed turning clearance is one of the pivoting pin boxes I mentioned. Since you have a 5th Airborne it's possible it's a Sidewinder/5th Airborne but you'd need to verify this. Either way though since you have the...

  • Troubleshooting Jarring and Chucking of Rockwood 5th Wheel Trailer with Revolution Pin Box
  • If you have the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider - Single Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30084 you asked from or a similar Reese Elite or Select hitch head, I can help with some of the chucking. This is the back and forth banging you referenced. For your Revolution hitch, I recommend the custom wedge designed for that hitch head funnel # SWW-01. This is a perfect fit for your hitch for a smoother ride. Banging up and down will be slightly reduced using a custom wedge, but...

  • Slider for Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch 30047 and Rail Kit Recommend for 2004 Chevy Silverado
  • If you have a Reese fifth wheel hitch part # RP30047 and wanted to convert it to a slider hitch all you need is the slider kit part # RP30048. For a rail kit confirmed as a fit for your 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed I'd recommend a custom install kit like the part # RP50064-58 which will minimize drilling and be much easier to install than a universal install kit. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.
