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. .

This item fit perfectly, no problems. Worked as advertised. Pulled a 4 horse trailer without incident. Easy to apply, remove. To me it was worth the money. 690351

Great hitch to convert your Reece elite puck system to a gooseneck. Plastic cover is pointless and doesn’t stay down, but it’s not needed anyway. 660919

I am happy with etrailer. Very knowledgeable and a great help. Their web site even works for someone as computer illiterate as I. Their prices are fair. They are very quick on delivery... And is concerned about your satisfaction after the delivery. The product I required was spot-on.. Thank you all at etrailer.. GOOD JOB..!! 748998

The hitch itself works great. The cover is only attached with double sided tape which didn't hold it in place long. 678826

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

Hitch was easy to set up and install. Looks very good and the knowledgeable and courteous staff help me get the correct hitch as I had rails already installed on my truck when I purchased it and had no idea what brand it was. A big thank you needs to go out to all the etrailer staff! 566537

Gooseneck hitch arrived quickly, well packaged and all there. Went together in about 45 minutes without any problems. The hitch seems well made. Time will tell how the two sided tape holds up on the cover. 542274

I have the Reese 18K fifth wheel hitch. I purchased this item so I would have the ability to tow gooseneck trailers as well. Item arrived in quickly and I had no issues. It will be easy to switch out my hitches with the puck system I have. 516795

I have been using etrailer for a few years now, with very good service . I purchased a Reese elite gooseneck hitch that will mount on where my fifth wheel hitch goes ( it locks in with the twist pucks) . It showed up in 3 days. 484987

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


Wanted to leave a message about all my experiences with etrailer. I purchased a new Ford F-350 Super Duty in August and wanted a lot of aftermarket items for it. I accidentally found etrailer on the internet while searching. They have everything I was looking for. Their pricing was very competitive with free shipping on a lot of items. The last item purchased was a Reese gooseneck ball and safety chain hookup. It’s a great item, very easy to install and shipped the next day. I’m very pleased with etrailer. 571867

Perfect fit for my 2012 Ram 2500 with Ramboxes! Allows me to use a the Ford OEM Companion #BWRVK3300 to haul a camper with the sidewinder and still have the option to have a removable gooseneck ball. Couldn’t be happier! Thanks again! 619604
