Video Transcript for Reese Gooseneck - Gooseneck for Fifth Wheel Rails - 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. .

Very fast ship! I realized I lived near the warehouse and called the morning after I placed the order to see if I could pick it up. It shipped on the 11pm pickup about an hour after I placed the order the previous night! So I received it later that day, saved me a trip, and the hitch was installed less than 24 hours after I ordered. EXCELLENT customer service! Thank you. 636154

This hitch works great. I think the plastic beauty cover could have been made out of sheet metal, I just removed it and put it in storage, there is no way that plastic would survive in the bed of my truck without getting broken. I like the fact that the ball is replaceable with a clip on the bottom holding it in place, but the ball does not fit in the hole quite as tight as I would like, I suppose with the down pressure of a trailer on it there is probably no movement. All in all I like towing with this gooseneck hitch better than a fifth wheel hitch, no noises and such. I have been pulling a trailer that I haul tractors on and it has performed very well for that. The weight of trailer and load has been up to 14,000 lbs. This hitch has been the solution for my trailer hauling problem, having a fifth wheel hitch but needing to haul a gooseneck trailer. Love the puck system of installing the fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches. 615768

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

Still works like new. Plastic cover came off. Double sided tape gave way. Did not hinder the operation, just cosmetics. I would buy again without hesitation.Kudos E Trailer

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


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

So far so good. The only problem was finding safety chain hooks that fit the safety hookups. I gave up and used heavy duty d-rings instead.

The safety chain loops are not big enough to accept the safety hooks for my 24' stock trailer. Easy to install but they need to reengineer the loops. 22987


Comments

Why cant you just place a second larger link through that hoop that your chain hook will fit in?

Great hitch. Very heavy and sturdy. Fits my 2016 F350 with factory puck system like a glove. Very easy drop into pucks and lock into place. The hitch separates into two pieces to make it able to be installed or removed by one person, but two are better. We tow a 16,00 pound 5th wheel with this hitch. 539826

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

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.

This is a very handy piece of equipment that i.use but normally use the 5th wheel hitch. When I pull a gooseneck I remove the 5th wheel hitch and install the gooseneck hitch within minutes..

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

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

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

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

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

  • 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.

The adapter # RP30156 does not have the inner most set of holes so it will not work.

  • Recommended Puck Adapter for 2015 GMC 2500 with 4-Puck Factory Look System

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.

  • 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.

  • Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Hitch with a 2010 Ford F-250 Short-Bed

If you'd care to reply with the year, make and model of your truck, I'd be happy to recommend an under bed rail system if one is available.

  • 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.

  • Adapter Recommendation for Converving Reese Signature Series Fifth Wheel Rails to Gooseneck
  • Your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 has a Reese Elite rail kit installed in it. The correct adapter you need to convert the rail kit to a gooseneck ball is the Reese Elite adapter part # RP30845. Curt does not offer an adapter that is similar that would fit what you have but the # RP30845 is exactly what you are looking for and would work well. This adapter has more capacity than you will need too at 25,000 lb.
