Forged, Self-Latching Jaw

Self-Latching Jaw

The one-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel hitch provides absolute security with its wraparound design. Increased jaw-to-king-pin contact results in not only a stronger connection, but less noisy rattling and stiff chucking as well.


The jaw is also always ready to receive, so you don't need to use the handle to open it before backing up toward your trailer. As long as the bail pin is removed from the latching handle, the jaw will accept the king pin as it enters the hitch.


Finally, the jaw is self-latching, so it will automatically secure your trailer's king pin when it moves into the jaw.


Quiet, Comfortable Ride

Pivot Bushings

In addition to the tight jaw tolerance, a close connection between the head and the pivot bushings further reduces rattle and movement. And because the pivot bushings are independent from the head, they can be tightened to ensure a strong connection over time.


King Pin Indicator Prevents High Pinning

King Pin Indicator

This M5 hitch features a built-in king pin indicator to ensure proper hookup. This indicator is located on the back of the head along with a V-shaped notch that are both visible from the cab of your truck. The V-notch is lined up with the jaw at the front of the hitch, and can be used as a guiding point to line the king pin up with the jaw as you back up your truck. The jaw also has an internal plate that keeps the king pin from entering if it is too high to enter safely. As a result, the king pin indicator will only change from red to green if the king pin is fully engaged in the jaw.


Easy-to-Use Latching Handle

Lever and Hitch

This hitch's handle is designed for smooth motion and effortless operation. It requires only 2 fingers to use and won't bind up as you pull. In addition, the handle is long, so it's easy to access from outside of your truck bed. And the ergonomic grip makes it comfortable to hold and pull from different angles.

Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - RP30895 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Chevrolet GMC towing prep package. It has a 27,000 pound weight capacity. It is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks with either the 6-1/2 foot bed or the 8 foot bed and with the factory rail kit, and on a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show if this will work for your application. Now this fifth wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed, so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer.

It is designed to work with the factory installed fifth wheel towing prep package from Chevrolet or GMC. What's nice about it on the head here, it uses a single piece, always ready, talon jaw which will wrap around the King Pin to ensure proper connection.This type of design offers superior to King Pin contact for maximum security and minimum rattle and the nice thing is this jaw is always ready to receive, so you don't have to open the handle all the time before hooking up. I'm going to show you how that operates in a minute. The head on this is a fully articulating head with an extra large landing area. Use this hookup helps limit chucking.

The V-notch right here makes it very easy to target the King Pin as you back up and they also offer builtin shock dampening technology to absorb any road shock. It does offer a high pin lock out to ensure proper engagement. Basically there's an indicator right back here on the hitch head that's an either tow or no tow, so it shows red or green.It's on the corner here. I'm going to rotate this around so you can see it. There you go.

You can see it showing red now, so that means it's not ready to tow. It's telling you the position of your jaws. Once you get your King Pin to slide in and lock into place it would show green there that means you're ready to tow, so it gives you good indication and what's nice about it is you can see that from the cab of your truck or from the side of the truck bed, just by looking at what color is showing, will tell you what position of the jaws. The handle is a nice ergonomic easy to reach handle. It will let you secure a trailer to your hitch.

It comes with the pin and clip, right here that you'll drop through the two holes to lock it or for added security, the holes are large enough you could use a padlock. We do sell those separately on our website.That'll give you extra added security and we also usually list the padlock as a related product on this product page. Take this back around, it does have a nice wide center section to create a solid stable towing experience. It does give the improved cab clearance and can be achieved with an offset design of the center section, basically this blue part right here under the hitch head that this head sets on. The two arms that it sets on. You can either bolt it in this way, it'll give you an inch and a half closer to the cab. You can switch it around and it would give you an inch and a half towards the rear, so if you want it to improve some cab clearance, you can put it in either way. Also when you bolt the legs to the center section there's three rows of holes, so it will give you range of 4" vertical hitch height adjustment for your application.Hitch height is very critical, because when you go to tow your fifth wheel, you want it to be as level as possible with the tow vehicle, so by bolting it to whatever row, it would fit your application perfectly. It is a fast easy installation. Basically it'll just drop into the four receiver pucks that are built into your factory under bed rails. All you have to do is pop the pin and clip, rotate the handle out 90 degrees, that'll rotate the tab. You do that on every corner. Drop it into the pucks. Once it's in there rotate your handle back, that'll lock it in. Put the pin and clip in and again do that at every corner and you're already to go. Very fast simple installation.Now this hitch is a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice durable powder coat finish to it. The handle, the latches, the jaws are all zinc plated to help resist corrosion. Application on this again is 2016 and newer Chevrolet, GMC trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 27,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 6750 pounds and what I do want to show you again is how the King Pin will go in, so we're going to try to give you a demonstration here. As we mentioned it's in the ready to receive position. You don't have to move the handle at all.You can see here's an example of a what a King Pin would be like, so it goes up against the jaws and once it slides in far enough you can see that the jaws will come around, lock it into place. Than handle moved, shows the holes lined up so you can take your pin and clip. Drop it through the holes. Clip it and you're ready to go. I mentioned if you prefer a padlock you could do that also and the main thing is if you look back here on this indicator it's showing green. Fully green means your ready to tow, all set to go.Then when you go to unhitch, uncouple, just take the pin and clip out and again you don't have to, all you have to do is take your handle, pull it out. Move it to the back just like that and then you'll notice as you uncouple this will come right out just like that and when it comes out if you notice it resets in the ready to receive position. Now you're back top where you don't have to do anymore with the handle it would slide right in again. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Chevrolet GMC towing prep package with a 27,000 pound weight capacity.

A VERY heavy duty hitch! We have used it a lot on a very heavy 5th wheel. The hitch indicator works every time, very handy to be able to tell at a glance if it is indeed locked. 644668

Easy to install, easy to remove. The visual indication that the jaws are engaged and locked makes for an easy guess free coupling of my camper. Thank you Reese for a great easy to use 5 th wheel hitch. Definitely recommend. 634370

Very awesome 5th wheel. This is my second Reese hitch and I love it. I love that I do not have to unlock anything prior to booking up. Unlocking and disengaging is a snap. It looks great and functions great. I get no noise on the road and no chucking. It glides into my factory GM hitch easily. It locks into the pucks with ease. I could have gone with the lower Weight rated hitch but decided to max it out, so I would not have purchase another hitch after I purchase a bigger camper. Hope this helps out on a purchase decision. 628270

Review from a similar Reese M5 in Fifth Wheel


I recently purchased a Reese M5 20K hitch for my new Silverado 3500HD, Crew Cab, 8’ bed. As usual, Etrailer pricing was very good and with free shipping to boot. The hitch arrived via UPS in just a few days after placing the order. Following the detailed instructions provided by Reese, the install into the factory “puck” system, was fairly straight forward. However, a word of caution concerning the install. There are 4 15/16” bolts that need to be torqued to 220-foot pounds and are somewhat difficult to get to. Fortunately, I was able to borrow a torque wrench that would accommodate the recommended foot pounds of torque. Also, you may have an issue if you need to place the hitch at its highest position. The release handle might protrude above the bed rails of your truck in this position. This will be a problem if you have a bed cover. Reese is/was well aware of this issue and sells an after-market handle that will correct this issue. Etrailer lists this handle on their Web page. 698379

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Silverado 2500 Short-Bed Towing Montana 5th Wheel
  • A short-bed pickup like your 6-1/2-foot-bed 2018 Silverado 2500 will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch in order to have enough turning clearance to avoid contact between the truck cab and the trailer overhang. Slider hitches come in both manual and automatic types. Since your Montana has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 16750-lbs I suggest selecting a hitch with a 20K weight rating to provide you with a good safety margin. If your 2500 does NOT have the factory 5th wheel...

To get that higher towing capacity, you can use the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Single Jaw - 27,000 lbs # RP30895 which is the only hitch rated for that large a capacity.

I'm honestly not really sure how to compare the M5 with the SAF Holland FW6000 and the Tulga Light Duty 5th wheel plates because they have a much higher weight capacity and it looks like the head unit installs...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 with Factory Pucks and Long Bed
  • I highly recommend the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Hitch for your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 with the factory puck system because of its unique jaw system that optimizes the amount of contact it has with your king pin and its settings which allow more height and cab clearance than other fifth wheel hitches. The Reese M5 is available with a 20,000 lb capacity # RP30890 or 27,000 lb capacity # RP30895 and will fit directly in the pucks of your '19 Silverado. It uses a single-piece jaw that latches...

  • The Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30142 is only compatible with the Reese Elite Underbed Kit. Unfortunately there is not a compatible leg kit or adapter for your new truck OEM pucks and that hitch head. The compatible hitch for your truck is the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # RP30890. This hitch is directly compatible with your factory pucks.

  • Can the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Locked to a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500
  • There isn't a specific lock, or really an easy way, to lock the legs of the Reese M5 hitch # RP30895 to the truck. Your best option would be to use a cable lock such as # e98891 to secure the whole hitch to the bed. You might be able to work in a small enough padlock at one of the cam levers at the feet but there won't be a lot of space between the bottoms of those levers and the truck bed.

There is not an adapter for this either so your only option would be to sell it to recoup some of your money and then obtain a new 5th wheel hitch. For this, I recommend the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30895 because it will not only fit directly into the pucks but it will also provide you with the most...

I am not aware of any other options that will be taller than the B&W Companion OEM so this is your best option.

  • If you are using a fixed (non-sliding) 5th wheel hitch such as the Reese M5 # RP30895 in your short-bed 2018 Silverado 2500 that has the factory prep package you can increase your turning clearance by switching to a pivoting pin box on the 5th wheel trailer. This will not require altering the truck in any way. These pivoting pin boxes go by various names including Revolution, Sidewinder and Turning Point, depending on the maker. All do the same thing: they change the pivot point between...

We have the Elite part # RP30871 that has a towing capacity of 26,500 lbs which would be a great solution if the reason you want a new hitch is because you need more towing capacity.

The outstanding jaw system of this hitch will ensure that you don't experience the rattling and "slop" that can occur in 5th wheel hitches with lesser jaws. That means you can tow in relative peace and can do so without...
