Heavy-Duty Towing

Specially designed for the serious tower, this fifth-wheel trailer hitch mounts directly to your medium-duty, cab-and-chassis-style truck for absolute stability and maximum towing capacity. This hitch is not intended for light-duty pickup trucks, and its towing capacity will be limited to the gross towing weight rating of your vehicle. Installation of the Reese low-profile fifth-wheel trailer hitch may require welding and moderate fabrication to ensure that the hitch is connected either directly to your vehicle's frame or to a substantial steel support structure that connects to the frame. Do not fasten to your truck's floor only.



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.

Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - RP30054 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30054. This is the Reese 30,000 lbs. Low Profile FifthWheel Trailer Hitch. Now this fifth wheel hitch is engineered for your medium duty and your cabinchassis type trucks. The hitch will mount directly to the truck frame; there are no base rails needed.Now, when this is installed, welding and fabrication may be required for installation. The design ofthis hitch has a low profile design which will permit trailering just above the truck deck.

Thesebrackets on the side here that that center mounts to has three sets of holes, so it will give you a 3range of height adjustment to fit multiple applications. Right now I have it bolted into the very topset of holes, so that would give you the maximum trailer hitch height which is 12 , basically, fromyour truck bed to your hitch. Now if you dropped it down to the very bottom set of holes, that wouldbe you lowest. That would be 9 . So from the truck bed to the hitch height would be 9 , sotheres a range of 3.Now this hitch does have a dual jaw design and thatll provide more jaw to kingpin contact than yourslide bar models.

This will give you less rattle, greater security. Basically I just want to show you howthe jaws operate. You just lift up on this safety latch. That will allow the handle to move in and out.So, basically, if you just pull out This handles a nice, readily accessible, lockable handle which has acomfort grip. So, basically, we just pull out on that.

You'll see the jaws open. When you pull it out farenough theres a notch there that it would lock into place so the jaws stay open, and the hitch is nowready for the kingpin to install into the hitch head. So, basically, if you back up, the kingpin wouldslide in. Once its in, just release your handle. The dual jaws would close and wrap around thekingpin.

Once its all installed, if you flip this latch down, that would keep the handle from moving inand out.Another little feature is this latch will have a hole drilled right here and theres a tab on the hitchhead with a hole, so when you push that latch to close, those holes would line up and you can put apin and clip through there, or you could even put a padlock for additional security. That would besold separately. Now also, this hitch head will move front to back, and the other nice feature is itdoes have a side tilt, and thatll create a smooth ride and reduce stress on the truck frame. If I canshow you that. Basically you'll be able to see it goes side to side. Without it connected to a trailer,its hard to move, but basically the way thats able to do that is this hitch head is mounted to thisrocker plate. The rocker plate has an arc design to it, so when you set that whole head and rockerplate into the hitch mount, on each side of this plate in the middle here there are two rollers overhere and two rollers over there, so when you drop that arced plate onto those rollers, you put thesebig pins through with the clips. Thatll keep in place and it allows that rocker plate to rock back andforth over those rollers, so it gives you a nice side-tilt motion.Now this hitch head is a black powder coat finish, which will help resist corrosion. And again, as I wasmentioning, you can actually pull these clips, pull these long pins out, and you can actually pick upand remove the rocker plate and the hitch head; its all one unit. Just move it to the side and thenyou have access through your mounting bracket for if you have a folding goose-neck hitch in yourtruck, that can still be used if its underneath your hitch mount here. Now this part is made in theUSA. It does have a gross towing weight capacity of 30,000 lbs thats on the hitch. The capacity, ofcourse, can be limited to that of the vehicle you'd be installing it in. It does have a vertical load limitor pin weight of 7,500 lbs. Again, we mentioned the hitch height, anywhere from 9 to 12 .It does come with a five year limited warranty. And I just want to give you a couple of measurementshere. These mounting brackets have square holes drilled in them for mounting to your truck frame.The distance from the center, back, front to back, centre to center on these mounting holes is 15,and the distance side to side from the mounting holes on this bracket to the mounting holes overhere is going to be about 25.That should do it for the review on part number RP30054. This is the Reece 30,000 lbs. Low ProfileFifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. .

FYI Y'all need to get the dimensions right the base plate is not 20 1/4 inches center to center left to right it's 19 1/4 inches with the brackets flipped in and 15" on center front to back. Brackets flipped out would be 22 1/2 inches on center with brackets out. 215080

After several local rv stores said they did not have hitch that would work for my 2005 c4500 I found this hitch on etrailer. It was heavier, 25000 lbs capable, than The local dealers (16000). I called etrailer and they were extremely helpful. I needed this quickly and was going to spend the money to have it overnighted but the lady asked where I lived. When I said central Missouri she said they could send it regular mail and I would get it the next day at no extra cost. It arrived as promised and it was easy to install. etrailer is the only place I will use for trailer parts. Great company and great service, they know what they are talking about! 370307

So overall this is a good hitch but would recommend an upgrade. I own a 2005 Freightliner Sportchassis. I pull a 14k fifth wheel. The hitch is an overall good design. The Sportchassis has predrilled holes already in place to fit this hitch. No drilling necessary. The only problem that I have with it is the side to side motion of the hitch head is very abrupt. The fore and aft movement is very smooth. The hitching and releasing is good. The hitch is built solidly. The head assembly rides on 4 metal roller assemblies and is supposed to roll left and right. With weight pulling on the head it rubs against the metal on the frame and provides excessive friction for the head. Once the trailer pivots enough, the head slams against the roller pins and sounds like the trailer is gonna break free. A very disturbing sound. My previous hitch was a b&w in a f250 and it was smooth as silk. The hitch does provide all that I need from it. With comparison to the other MDT hitches on the market it is the cheapest. I will probably with time upgrade to another hitch but it does provide what I need it for. If you are trying to save money on a MDT hitch, it works. If money is not an issue I would probably look at alternatives. 729198

Easy installation, to flatbed platform. Great hitch, I have towed over 100 5thwheels with it this past yr. I like how it will automatically open, then reclose when you back up up to connect. Components of the hitch are really tight when new, but seems to work better after a few uses and continued lube spraying. Overall very satisfied..

    There are specific 5th wheel hitches for flat bed trucks and no installation kits because of how the hitches must install. As an example take a look at flat bed hitch # RP30054. To install the hitch a 1/2 inch thick steel plate has to be professionally welded to the truck frame below the flat bed. Then the hitch can be bolted to that plate. A hitch or rails cannot mount to just the bed because the bed is not strong enough in most cases for 5th wheel towing.
