Video Transcript for Reese Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters RP30845 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30845. This is the Reese Elite Series Above Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch. This trailer hitch is specifically designed for use with the Reese Elite System or Signature Series Rail System. This is easy to mount, easy to remove. It's an above-bed gooseneck trailer hitch. It's perfect for heavy duty towing, especially if you already have the Elite Series or the Signature Series Fifth-Wheel Hitch. It's an above-bed gooseneck hitch.

It's sturdy and durable, has a strong steel frame which is powder coated, and it has this plastic cover right here. I'll just lift this off. This is a plastic cover and this will help recover the hitch to help resist inclement weather and offers a clean slate look to the hitch itself. I'm just going to set this aside for right now so I can show how this hitch attaches. This is designed to be used on the Elite Series Custom Under Bed Rail Kit, uses the puck system. We do sell those separately. This will allow uninhibited use of your truck bed when this hitch is removed.

The puck system right here allows easy mounting and removal of the hitch. Right here you can see it has these handles to help you remove the hitch and install it. You can also use these handles right here as built in safety chain brackets, also. Basically this has a gross towing weight capacity of 25,000 pounds, a vertical load limit capacity of 6,250 pounds, but you do have to remember that the capacity will be limited to whatever that is of the rail kit. Usually the rail kits are made to the vehicle that it's going on, so the lowest rate capacity will be what will limit you. The ball side uses the standard size 2-5/16 diameter gooseneck ball and this ball does rotate. The reason they do that is help as far as binding when you hook the gooseneck cup up to it.

Since it rotates, it will eliminate a lot of the binding that you run into to. Just to show you how this installs and removes. You take this pin and clip off right here, and in the same way on this side just remove this pin and clip. With these handles, when they're in this position they're locked, so secured to the rails. When you swing these open, just like that, what that does is that tab in there will move out of the way and allow you to pick up this. We'll swing both of these out of the way. With it like that, you'll see that the tabs will align up with the puck system and it will come right out.

Very simple. If you remove it completely, you'll have your full truck bed access. When you go to install it, what you want to do is, just make sure these are in the open position, just like that. With them in the open position, you've head they fell right down into the puck system. Then to lock it, if you're going to tow with it, just pull this back in, pull this in. You'll see that these holes will align up. Go ahead and put your pin and clip in there, just like that, and the same way over here.You'll close these to lock them into position. Go ahead and put your pin and clip in, then you'll see with them in that lock position. When you try to lift it up, it won't go anywhere; it's secured to the rails. That should do it for the review on part number RP30845. It's the Reese Elite Series Above Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch. .

Purchased for a 2006 Silverado Crew Cab Duramax. Previous owner left the underbed portion of the assembly. The actual ball mount is very easy to install with detailed instructions. Plastic trim on top is sort of cheap with unreliable double sided tape from the manufacturer, which I will have to replace. I would not recommend for lifted trucks as the ball sits approx 6 inches higher than a hideaway turnover type, unless you have that much room to adjust your gooseneck trailer. Other than that, I am pleased. 446119

This adapter is well made, nicely presented and very easy to assemble and install. It allows the Reese SIGNATURE SERIES 5th wheel hitch to double as a standard goose-neck hitch. Once assembled and installed the first time you can easily swap between the above-bed 5th wheel hitch and this goose-neck hitch in less than 5 minutes. The only downside is the steep price for this adapter. And etrailer was very helpful in reviewing their location with respect to mine to determine the exact UPS transit time to get me the hitch quickly but without wasting money on excessive shipping... THANKS! 106627

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


Will try to keep this as real as it gets out there. 2015 F250 XLT Crew Cab 8' Bed Ordered the Reese Elite Gooseneck and Barger 90 degree wiring harness. Received the gooseneck hitch and harness quickly. Free shipping got here in two days. Item came in two boxes. The rails were poorly packaged. Box was basically open and beat to hell, leaving markings on the rails' paint. Didn't bother me, but might others. The pucks were loose in the box and were lucky they did not fall out. The second box with the ball, ball mount, harness and misc. hardware was packed so well it took about 5 minutes to take off all the staples and then each product was individually boxed inside. Wish they would treat the rail box with the same care. Instructions are ok. Used the online install video instead. The video is slightly simplified as getting the nuts on the bolts is a slight challenge for a one man install. I was able to do the entire installation by myself with the exception of the four rail-to-frame bolts. Getting these snugged up to the point of being able to torque took two people simply because the nuts are hidden on the backside of the rail...particularly the driver-side front...which is slightly behind the gas tank, but still accessible. My F250 is factory lifted 4-5" so I did not have to remove the rear wheels, nor did I have to remove the spare tire or heat shield. Lower trucks will need the rear wheels pulled. Installing the ball mounting plate took some doing. Got one bolt on then decided to actually install the ball into the plate from above pulling the plate tight below. I used vice grips to basically keep the plate mounted tight rather than trying to lift it from underneath with one had and bolt it with the other. For me the most time consuming part of the project was getting the darned bed bolts off to lift the right side. Broke the T50 bit they supplied and then two others. Finally gave up and ground off two of the remaining bolts...and ordered replacements. Tip for those doing this on their own, you may want to spray the bolts from under with PB Blaster the day before you intend to install. I forgot and the issue was likely that the bolts were rusted. The wiring harness was a breeze, although I wish a shorter version was available. (Perhaps I missed it). Had to loop/zip tie about 2-3' under the bed. Connecting between the factory connectors did require me to pull the mounting plate. Was a bit tight to just slip the new connector in. Also, working the harness thru the hole in the bed side was a bit tight. Install probably took 10 minutes after getting the holes drilled. Total install time for this slightly skilled guy was about 3-1/2 hours...after the bed bolts fiasco. Oh...and did it all with a cast on the left arm. Ha! Now to see how she tows! 430852

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


Item was received well packaged. All parts were received as expected. I wish I would have taken pictures of box when it was received or as I installed it on my 2015 F250 but rest assured it fit into my Ford with the 5th wheel prep package quite easily. Directions were adequate. My only issue was I did not know if the pre-asembly of the base was torqued correctly. There was no mention of it in the packaging and I do not own a torque wrench so it would have been comforting to know that it was done properly before shipment. However it appeared to be okay and I had no issues towing my 5th wheel the 15 miles from the dealership to my home. Also there is no mention prior to ordering that you need lithium grease to properly lube the moving parts. Make sure you have on hand prior to assembly. Overall, excellent product and I am definitely please with it and highly recommend it. 203214


Comments

I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase one year ago of this hitch. We have towed our 32 crusader across the country and back via different routes with no issues. I have read where others find it heavy to lift in and out of the truck bed. I would too except I remove the hitch plate to lighten the load so that I am lifting two relatively lite pieces instead of one heavy piece. We take the 5th wheel out on the road about every two months so I am happy with how I can separate the two in order to lift them in or out of the truck bed.Extremely easy to install, less than 5 minutes. I am totally satisfied with this product.

My Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch arrived UPS. 143lbs and used a hand dolly to take off the truck and wheel to my garage. Came packaged ok. Pre-assembled and everything was included. Read the Manual, which for older people helps, showing lube and parts, install info etc...referring back to the manual/instructions. Used a wooden table(same height as my tailgate) to wheel it right up to the gate and slid the hitch on a piece of cardboard(from the box) into the position of the puck system. Moving the base first then the hitch plate next. The hitch install was simple and easy. Did not need any help. I did call customer service and made a slight 1/4 turn adjustment to two legs for a tighter fit. There again referring to the manual/instructions provided with the hitch. Very pleased with the hitch over all. It served its purpose and I believe will give us many years of service. We pull a 5th wheel gvwr of 11769lbs and completed over 1200 miles of safe towing. Pleased with my purchase. Thank you. 159385

I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather! 296158

I have installed this hitch 4 times. It is a solid piece. With a little care in the mounting adjustments, there are no rattles or noises, even when the camper is not connected. The only problem I have is the instructions indicated drilling 4 3" inch holes in the bed. A 2 1/4" set of holes is more appropriate. They leave too much room for installation error. I mount the rails below and use a pointed bolt from the bottom to mark the hole location to drill the bed. Other than that - I think this is a great hitch. 125537

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


I have owned B&W, Curt and Reese Hitches for 5th wheel trailers. When I recently purchased a toy hauler I needed a heavy duty hitch for the 20,000# load. I decided to spend the extra money and get the Reese because of previous good experience and fitting the installed pucks in my F350. The Reese felt very light when I unpacked it. The parts are all made in China or Mexico. Assembly and installation took 25 min. The release mechanism feels cheap. It is difficult to make sure the pin is fully seated in the hitch. 2x it looked seated and I was able to install the locking pin and the trailer came out of the hitch! I always do a test pull in forward and reverse before pulling out onto the road. First time it came out I caught it on the test pull, second time it looked good w the test pull but 30' down the driveway it came out and crushed my bedside and tailgate. I would recommend the B &W or Curt before buying the more expensive but inferior Reese. 397426

The Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit was perfect fit for my 2014 RAM 3500 with the factory installed gooseneck prep kit. Once it arrived, my wife and I had no problem installing and removing any of the components from the kit. Being able to put all parts in the handy carrying bag is a bonus to. As for etrailer.com, delivery was faster than expected and much appreciated. The video and reviews on the website for this product (not to mention the price) were the main reasons why I purchased this product and purchased it from etrailer.com. If I had one con, it would be that ball hitch needs a sleeve to protect it from being dinged or scratched in the carrying bag, but no big deal. Thanks etrailer.com! 178262

etrailer.com customer service was excellent. No complaints. However, I couldn't give a 5 due to the fouled up UPS delivery. I paid for 3 day shipping on the 31st. I received my tracking number and it indicated I'd receive my Gooseneck hitch-ball kit on the 4th. I didn't receive it on the 4th. I called you and you told me it wouldn't get here until the 5th due to the holiday. However, UPS didn't manage to deliver my package until 2:00PM on the 6th. Your customer service refunded the extra charge for the 3 day service, so no foul there. But UPS really dropped the ball. Anyway, etrailer did hold up their end, so thank you. Yes, I'll be back..... Anyhow, etrailer is great, UPS, not so much. 465355

When the package arrived, I set to opening it, (very well packed). Everything that I ordered was there. Got the Gooseneck adapter figured out and got the kingpin collar installed. After I moved the truck so that I could place the adapter under the fifth wheel assembly the set up was very simple. Setting up the ball and the adapter took me about 1.5 hours to complete. Very good equipment. Would recommend to anyone that wanted to have the versatility in towing options. Sorry, no photos. The reason I went this way was due to the cost of a fifth wheel hitch for the 2016 Ram 3500/ with the pucks per-set in the bed and on the frame this worked out to be a little less expensive to do. 330572

This hitch looks well made and thought out. Connecting it to the bed of my Super Duty is a snap with the cam locks. I love how I have a flat bed when it's removed due to the Ford under bed fifth wheel rail kit. I'd buy it again. My only two minor negatives are: 1. It's a heavy beast. Much more than my old hitch. It pushed me to buying an overhead hoist for the garage, which makes putting in and taking out the hitch so much easier. It was a blessing in disguise. 2. The handle isn't easily removable like my old hitch. I bike on my vacations and when driving to the trailhead I put a bike on either side of the hitch. Now I have to keep a ratchet handy to remove the handle. 99373

I have a 2016 Ford F250. My truck didn't come installed with any hitch equipment other than the stock bumper hitch. I insulted Reese Elite Series rails under the bed and have pulled my 5th wheel just fine since. Recently, I purchased a new 5th wheel trailer and the dealer tossed in an Andersen Ultimate Hitch 2. The only problem is that my truck hasn't been equipped with a gooseneck hitch. This product solves that problem, integrates with my current setup, and is incredibly easy to install. Can't wait to test it out on the road this weekend. Here's my current setup: 2016 Ford F250 Air Lift Air Ride System with compressor Reese Elite Rails with Gooseneck Hitch Kit 448210

My entire experience with etrailer.com was excellent. I spent numerous hours researching the hitch and tonneau cover set up I wanted for my 2014 Ford F250. The majority of my time was on the etrailer.com website reviewing Q&A, installation guidance and videos, and expert advise. I chose the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitch and the BakFlip F1 tonneau cover. Both products arrived within 10 business days. Installation was as easy and straightforward as expected. The BakFlip F1 really dresses up my F250 and the BakFlip technology makes it very easy to use and gives me full access to my truck bed as needed. The Reese hitch has performed flawlessly. 132420

He had a need of it on a particular day to leave with his business trailer across country. Andrea was very professional and at my request did a bin check to make sure it was available for immediate shipping and shpped out express overnight so we could take care of our guests needs.

Wonderful experience. The Reese Elite Pop-in Ball and Safety Chain Attachment was exactly what I needed to adapt a gooseneck trailer to my 2011 F350 Super Duty. Designed specifically for mating with the factory installed fifth wheel and gooseneck mating plate that came with my vehicle, the Elite Pop-in Ball and Safety Chain Attachment requires no welding or bolt installation. The entire kit can be installed and removed in less than (1) minute. It is a well made product that has met all of my expectations. I will recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for quality, well priced trailer and trailer accessories. 3262

My Hitch came fully assembled, easy to install in my 2015 Ford F350 with factory rails, A 1 1/2" in box end wrench works great to tighten the puck nuts if you have it, If not the provided wrench works, its just a little difficult due to confined spaces. I had it adjusted and installed in about 30 minutes. Have a little axle and lithumn grease on hand for the installation. The grease cert was a great idea from reese for lubing internal part with out removing the head. A 12'' lube plate is needed if u don't like greasing the head, it just makes things easier. 217592

Great price for a top quality 5th wheel trailer hitch. There are other similar hitches to this B&W, but this is the best and the same as Ford's OEM one costing much more. Some assembly is required, just fitting to truck bed and locking/pinning the head mounting is required. One thing that is not mentioned on this website is the pre-mount height of head is 15-3/4 high, the most used height for most truck and trailers. 352837

The hitch works as advertised and we have not had any trouble with it.

I have Dodge 2012 5500 with utility body looking to install hideaway ball coupler And also have 2013 4500 with flatbed would like to install the same on both trucks. Both trucks should be Cab and chassis with straight rails. TY

We'd be happy to help, but we need a couple bits of information. How long is the flat bed? What is the deck material of both the flat and utility bed?

I received this product in a short time, I was very impressed with the quality of the items. I have not had a chance to use them but have installed them in my truck and they fit perfectly. I will be using them this weekend. I will also have two other trips planned to Texas to bring back a stock trailer and a flat bed. I would recommend this product to my family and friends. Thank You 319785

Product took less than a minute to install on my 2015 Ram 3500. Would highly recommend this product for those who have the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package from Ram in their truck. 247959

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


Overall, nice hitch. A little sensitive to "off center" coupling - it likes a very straight and very level shot, despite the advertised wider entry opening. Not happy with the paint on the receiver pate - chipped and rusted easily. Easy to install and remove - comes off in two pieces resulting in lower weight to lift off the bed. Pops into the Ford puck system without problems. 409139

I bought the Reese Elite pop-in ball for my 2013 Ram3500 and put it to use with a heavy load. It fits perfect and is easy and fast to install or remove. I am very happy with it and can't understand why anyone would want a different system. The safety chain hook-ups are good also, but require a large hook as a smaller hook won't work. I will recommend this product to anyone. 194495

I’ve had the Reese Elite series gooseneck kit in my 2012 f350 for about a year and I’ve been more than pleased with the kit! I’ve hauled various pieces of equipment with it as well as large loads of hay. This kit is definitely the way to go if you have the factory gooseneck! etrailer made the purchase easy and smooth as well as the cheapest around, couldn’t be happier 515945

I found this gooseneck package to exactly what I was looking for. Super easy to install and easy to tuck away behind the seat. etrailer.com did a great job getting it to me! The original email said it would be shipped in 1-7 days, I thought that it would be a week or so before I saw it, but it arrived at my house in 3 days!!!! Very Happy Thanks!! 38959

The Reese adapter fit excellent and Emily H. was very helpful in the selection process for a correct fit in my truck. The price was half that of the dealer so Bravo! since I believe both are made by Reese. I have not used it yet but will very soon. It arrived on time the nice little carry bag is an added bonus for easy storage behind the back seat. 256129

haven't used it yet. Familiar with hitch. Use all the time around farm. Just haven't used one with quick insertion and exit. (buttons) have now the one with lock under fender. Pick-up is new and wanted to get product with OEM hitch. Only thing is I should have spent a couple bucks and had it come sooner instead up ground ship. No big deal Thanks 411229

  • Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 w/ Factory Puck System Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer
  • Although the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, will not work with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156, I do have a solution for you. Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit, # RP30138, in your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory puck system. This offers a bolt-in, no drill installation which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your truck. Just one hole in the bed for the gooseneck...

  • Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Hitch with a 2010 Ford F-250 Short-Bed
  • Your decision should be made on how you plan to use your truck. For me, I would choose the Elite Series 18K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, item # RP30144. My reasons for choosing this hitch are that I own a farm and use the bed of the truck for many other tasks. I also own a gooseneck trailer that would easily be towed using the Elite Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, item # RP30845, and would still leave the bed open when not needed. You will need the, # RP30073, installation kit with this hitch. If...

  • Recommended Puck Adapter for 2015 GMC 2500 with 4-Puck Factory Look System
  • Based on the year, the system is most likely not a factory system. GMC and Chevy did not have a factory puck system until 2016 and it included the gooseneck puck so there were 5 holes. If you have the 4 pucks it most likely is the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30868 which is confirmed to fit your truck. For a compatible gooseneck hitch, I recommend the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - 25,000 lbs # RP30845....

  • Looking for Gooseneck Hitch That is Compatible with the Puck System on 2015 Ford F-350
  • I have exactly what you are looking for. Since you do not want to drill into the bed of your 2015 Ford F-350 to install a gooseneck hitch, take a look at the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP30845. This gooseneck hitch works with the puck system on your 2015 Ford F-350 so no drilling needed. Just mount it in the bed when you need to use it and remove it when you don't.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Needed for a Reese Signature Series Under Bed Rail Kit
  • To install a gooseneck ball in the bed of your truck with a Reese Signature Series fifth-wheel hitch system, you will need to use the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, item # RP30845. The Reese Signature Series fifth-wheel hitch system uses a puck style attachment in the bed of the truck that is not compatible with the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails, item # 16085. This fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapter is designed to install into standard...

  • Adapters to Allow Towing Gooseneck Trailer with 5th Wheel Hitch and Base Rails
  • If you have a set of industry-standard above-bed 5th wheel base rails in your truck you can tow a gooseneck trailer by installing an adapter such as the Curt Spyder # 16085, the Pro Series # 49080 or one of the other similar items shown on the linked page. All of these 5th wheel rail gooseneck adapters are standardized to fit into any brand of 5th wheel base rails. Note that some of these like the Pro Series have offset ball placement which gives you the option to install the plate...

  • Weight of Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Hitch # RP30845 and Reese Elite Series Install Kit # RP30061
  • The weight of the Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Hitch, part # RP30845, is 61 pounds. Along with this item you would need the Reese Elite Series Installation Kit, part # RP30061 for your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado. The installation kit weighs 55 pounds. I am including links to the installation instructions on the Reese hitch and the installation kit.

  • Fifth Wheel King Pin to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter for 2011 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • When you get right down to it, if you are going to primarily tow a fifth wheel trailer and you have not installed a gooseneck yet, the best practice really is to use a sliding fifth wheel hitch. Reese offers a nice option, their Elite Series, part # RP30144 that would allow you to install a fifth wheel hitch using rails, part # RP30868 that mount under the truck bed. Four small flush-mounted pucks remain in the bed once the hitch is removed, allowing full bed access. Even a standard...

  • Are the Reese Elite Series Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Hitches Interchangable on the Same Mounts
  • Yes, the Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Hitch, part # RP30845, is made to fit the same under bed kit that the Elite Series Fifth Wheel does. You would remove the fifth wheel from the four pucks in your truck bed and this goose neck hitch would drop into the same pucks under the bed, and lock in the same way. I have included a link to the instructions that will show you how the gooseneck installs into the Elite Series mounts.

  • Removing Reese Elite Series Above Bed Gooseneck Hitch from Truck Bed After Use
  • If you are speaking of the Reese Elite Series Above Bed Gooseneck part # RP30845, removal is pretty simple. Remove the locking pin from the anchor handle on each side of the gooseneck hitch. Then, rotate each locking handle to its unlocked position, which would be perpendicular to the hitch itself. Lift one end of the hitch out of the mounts, and then repeat for the other side. Sometimes the locking handles will need to be jiggled a bit to align the anchors with the opening in the mounting...

  • Comparing Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for Reese Elite Series Prep Package on a 2011 Ford F-250
  • If you have the factory installed 5th wheel trailer hitch prep package that includes the pop in ball for a gooseneck trailer, it would be best to use it instead of the above bed gooseneck hitch # RP30845. The pop in ball is directly attached to the base rails which are attached to the truck frame which is a more ideal connection than the above bed hitch. But, if you wanted to or needed to use the Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP30845, it will fit in the pucks...

  • Adding a Gooseneck Hitch or 5th Wheel Hitch to a 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Prep Package
  • Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP30845 was designed for aftermarket under bed 5th wheel installation kits but not the factory set up on your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500. But if the truck also has the center hole for a gooseneck ball you can use # C60692 to add a ball and safety chain loops. If you do not have the center gooseneck hole then I recommend using a 5th wheel trailer hitch that mounts directly to the factory prep package. If your truck is a long bed you can...

  • If the pucks that are in the bed of your 2011 GMC Sierra 2500 match # RP30061, see the video I have linked, then you can use Gooseneck plate # RP30845. The pucks in this system are spaced 13 inches apart front to back on center and 30 inches apart side to side on center. This hitch was designed specifically to fit the Reese Elite Series under bed installation kits, such as # RP30061. I have linked a video of the gooseneck hitch as well.
