Note: If using a slider, hitch will not adjust to lowest height setting.


Note: This fifth-wheel trailer hitch will not fit pickups with beds shorter than 6'. It also will not fit trucks with flareside/stepside bed. A minimum 13" extended trailer pin box is recommended.


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.




Kwik-Slide Square-Tube Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' 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.

Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - RP30051 Review

Today were going to review part number rp30051. This is the Reese Fifth Wheel Dual-Jaw Trailer Hitch with the square-tube sliders. This has a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This fifth wheel trailer hitch will have the two-jaw locking system which provides more jaw-to-king-pin contact than the economical slide-bar models. Just want to open that up to show you the dual jaws. Open this handle latch, pull out the handle, and as you can see the dual jaws right there will open and close, and when theyre closed they do wrap around the king pin and provide more jaw-to-king-pin contact so it will give you less rattle greater security.

It also has the four-way pivoting head, goes side-to-side and also goes front-to-back. This will ease hookup on unlevel ground. Now it also comes with a height adjustment, which if I rotate this and show you on the side, on the crossmember there are four sets of holes. So when you install the crossmember onto the square-tube sliders, if you put it in the very top holes that would be the lowest hitch height. That would be 15 inches and that would be the distance above your truck bed.

If you put that bolt in the very lowest position, that would be 18 inches, so your range for hitch height adjustment would be anywhere from 15 to 18 inches above your truck bed, so it gives you a 3-inch height adjustment. The sliders and the hitch have a black powder coat finish which will help resist corrosion. This locking handle does have a nice cushioned grip on it. Now for demonstration purposes, I do already have this installed into rails, but the above-bed rails and the installation kit will be sold separately. We do recommend the quick installer, the custom-fit installation kit for your vehicle because using that will cut the installation time in half compared to the universal kit.

This hitch will fit the Curt, Valley, Draw-Tite, Hidden-Hitch, and Reese base rails. Now the gross towing weight capacity on this is 16,000 pounds. The vertical load limit is 4,000 pounds. I did mention the hitch height adjustment is 15 to 18 inches. Now on the square-tube slider, the travel is 10 inches front-to-back, and I just want to show you a few features on this.

I had mentioned the handle for the head. Basically there is a handle latch right here that once you have the jaws closed around the king pin, if you push this hatch down that will prevent the handle from being operated, which will keep the jaws around the king pin. There is a hole right here in the latch and then theres a hole right here on the head, so when you push it down the holes will line up. You can put a pin and clip through there or you can actually put a padlock through there, which is sold separately for additional security. Now on the slider, basically it shows you on the side, right now I have the handle in the straight up position, which is the unlocked position. That will allow these sliders to slide on the square tubes front and back 10 inches maximum. So basically what you would do is if youre in a position if you pull into a campground and you need to maneuver the fifth wheel around, you would just put it to this side where it says locked maneuvering position. Then basically you would push this all the way that way and it would lock into position 10 inches more extended out, so that will give you maneuverability on tight turns so the trailer will not hit the cab on your truck bed. Then once youre done camping and youre ready to get on the road and tow, if you just move that hitch into the locked towing position, and then you would slide this all the way this way, and then it would click in and lock and not move. In the towing position it would pull the fifth wheel trailer closer to your truck cab, but since youre not going to be doing any tight turns or maneuvering, it doesnt matter, youre just going to be towing on the highway with it. So those would be the positions you would use the slider in. Then I just want to show you on the very back here, if youll notice the head is on a big, large pivot beam and it is held in by this big, large pivot bolt and a pin and clip that locks into place. So actually if you just push out this large bolt, the whole head and pivot beam would life out of the crossmember, so its very easy installation, easy to remove or install. Just slide that back in. Again, this comes with a five-year limited warrantee. That should do it for the review on part number rp30051.Square-tube slider provides clearance required for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speedso Prevents trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during sharp, slow-speed turns* Wide stance offers excellent stabilityo Fits Curt, Valley, Draw-Tite, Hidden-Hitch and Reese base rails.

I purchased the Reese dual jaw slider and install bracket kit. Everything arrived in three days in perfect condition. After watching the install video and reviewing the enclosed instructions I installed the assembly myself. It took approximately 4 hours . As you can see I also did additional steps, cutting the rubber bed mat to fit around the rails. Also undercoating the brackets to blend in the wheel wells. Etrailer is definitely the place to go for all your RV needs. 334465

Being a first time 5th wheel owner and After researching for the right 5th wheel hitch for my 2011 ext cab chevy Z71 4wd. and the best prices i went with the reese 16 K slider hitch. A must for a 6 1/2 ft bed. And etrailer had the best price and were very helpful answering all my questions The hitch arrived in 3 days, One of the 2 boxes was a little torn up but nothing was damaged, The instructions were great,and it had more than enough hardware needed for different apps. I had 2. choices for the mounting brackets,I went with the custom fit not the universal the custom brackets are strong and fit perfect. I watched a couple install videos online,there were not many on my truck people said you have to cut out your exhaust and your heat shield and drop the gas tank.I did not have to drop my gas tank i just slightly bent down the heat shield to reach above it then pushed it back up. I used the Allen button head bolt for the left front and had my wife spin the bolt with a long extension and ratchet while I held the nut and washers with a magnet and my finger tips,it was kind of a (pima) and took a little time but way better than dropping my tank. I did call Reese with a couple questions and suggested to use stronger shipping boxes. The only thing I had to adjust was the support for the parking brake cable. I did the hole job on the ground in my yard This also was a good time I replaced my rear brakes,checked my spare tire psi,and llubed my cable for the spare lift. Every one was verry nice and helpful from etrailer and Reese. I wish I was better with computers and could of made a video 638471

Fast shipping, a couple small spacers were missing from parts, luckily I had somethings laying around that worked. Went together fairly easily with only minor changes to brackets. Couldn’t beat the price here locally. 633505

Overall the product seems to be good quality. The instructions could be a lot more clear. After calling Reese, even the guy on the phone agreed that the spacers provided should be shown as going in above or below the bed. Unfortunately with the size of the U spacers provided, there would be no way to get the nut on the length of bolt sent. Also there were lock washers in the package which the CS rep didn't know what they were for either. Finally, the cotter pins provided are weak, 2 broke already and the handle to adjust the slider didn't have holes drilled for the cotter pin to keep it in place so i just drilled it myself. As a side note, the way the pins lock it in to make it removable, it has quite a bit of play which you can then hear when backing up or starting off.. Using on a Ford F250 2015 6-3/4 bed, pulling a FR 33BHOK (about 11k loaded). 628665

I'm very happy with the product, service and price. I originally had a used non sliding Reece fifth wheel hitch installed in my 6 1/2 ft. Tundra Bed. It didn't have enough clearance for backing into some spots and my new truck cab got dented ($1,700 repair bill). This sliding fifth wheel is the answer, very easy to install on same bed rails. BTW etrailer doesn't recommend a non sliding fifth wheel for my truck. Smart. 365542

Have towed my 36 Cedar Creek 5th wheel about 600 miles with the hitch. No problems. Does what it is designed to do. You can spend more if you wish but this is a good solid hitch. Also would recommend etrailer.com to anyone as the place to buy. Keep up your great service.

I currently have a 2014 GMC 2500 four door short bed and I am going to replace the Husky 15K 5th wheel unit I have because the head on the unit doesnt have the pivoting motion I would like to have for unhooking and hooking up on unlevel ground. My rails are the Reese RP5066-58 and the center points where the hitch fits into the rails is 22 from front to back on each side as you are looking at the unit. What I am looking at is purchasing the RP30051 5th wheel hitch but I was wondering if the 22 center points that my rails currently have will work without having to re-drill and move them. If this unit isnt compatible with the 22 centers can you let me know what distance it requires and if there is another unit that may fit better let me know that also, thanks

Most of the big 5th Wheel manufacturers, including Reese and Husky, use the same mounting patterns for the hitch legs so that you can swap if you need to. The Reese # RP30051

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Light Weight with 6-1/2 Foot Bed on 2016 Chevy 3500 SRW
  • For your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 SRW short bed, let's start with your 5th wheel rails. I recommend getting the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50066-58 which has custom brackets so it won't require drilling into your frame. The brackets will attach to holes already present in your frame. The Andersen Ultimate # AM3200 is a great option for your truck with its 9 inch offset and light weight design. It will be far easier...

  • Compatibility of B&W Gooseneck Hitch and Offset Ball with Andersen Ultimate Hitch on 2018 F-150 5.5
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 with 5.5 foot bed, the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1115 is the correct fit. You will want to use the 4 inch offset ball # BWGNXA4085 because the bed is shorter than 6 feet. This offset ball will work with the Andersen Ultimate Hitch but you will still need to be careful with turning clearances due to the short bed and Super Crew Cab. The Andersen hitch will require the shorter 3237 coupler tube in place...

The correct installation kit is going to depend on what base rails you already have; for example if you have the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt - Extended Length # RP30153 you will need the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56034 which fits your truck.

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel King Pin Weight and Truck Payload Capacity
  • The hitch pin weight of 1400 lbs you stated is so close to your payload capacity, but that is not accounting for the 5th wheel hitch and rail weights or the loaded weight with cargo added. Tunda's are notorious for having a lower payload and in this case, I can't tell you it will be fine. The payload weight is spread out over the truck bed where the 5th wheel rails are mounted to the frame directly so are more secure. Unfortunately manufacturers don't test for the 5th Wheel Hitch weight...

Measure the distance from the center of the gooseneck ball to the back of the truck cab. Call this measurement A. Next, measure the width of the trailer overhang and divide by 2 to get half, measurement B. If A is 4 inches or more than B then you can safely make 90 degree turns.

  • Troubleshooting Reese Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch That Won't Lock Into Maneuver Position
  • If your Reese Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch like the Kwik-Slide # RP30051 is not locking in the maneuver position then I first just recommend making sure that the legs are mounted squarely in the base rails. Sometimes when a sliding hitch doesn't lock into position it's simply a matter of the legs being out of line so that the slider gets bound up. If this looks fine then there might be an issue with the springs that secure the locking arm. Check to see if you can easily move the locking...
