Video Transcript for Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate Review

Today we're going to show you Part #VGM-07-100, the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate with Open Design. We've got it on our truck here to show you how it fits. First off, the construction. It has a square-style tubing on the top here, and it's got the nice, generous cut-out here for your hitch on your 5th-wheel or gooseneck trailer. This does have the round tubes going all the way across, another square tubing construction on the bottom. Take a closer look at the edge of the tailgate where it meets the bed and tail lights. You can see it has a gentle curve that actually matches the curve of the bed and tail lights. You can take a look. There's a little seam on the body work here.

It also is matched on the tailgate as well. It does come with a new latch with the tailgate to match it to the factory catch here. You can see how it just kind of pushes together and locks into place. To unlock it, you can pull on the ring and pull up, and it releases. You have one on each side. One last detail about the paint finish on it. It's actually a powder coat finish and it's intended to be used as a primer.

You can keep it the way it is, but they do recommend going over it with your favorite color. Pretty simple to install. All you have to do is actually install the latch, and we can show that over on the passenger side. Go ahead and take your tailgate. We'll lower it and put on our second latch. This is our new latch. It's pretty simple to install.

We'll go ahead and run it through the rectangular opening here, and let's go ahead and line up the holes. You only use two of the three sets of holes. The new bolt will go from the outside to the inside and comes with a lock nut. We don't want to tie it down because we have to make sure that it works correctly with the catch on the truck, so we'll just go ahead and snug it down for now. This does use the allen tool to tighten down. It's 4 millimeter, and we'll use a 7/16ths wrench on this side here for a nut. Once you're satisfied with the fit of it, then you can go ahead and just tighten down your hardware. That will finish it for the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate, Part #VGM-07-100.

First I would like to say that the tailgate is exactly what I was looking for "BUT" when I received the product the first thing I noticed was that the latches did not match my 2008 GMC Sierra. The latches would have fit my old GMC, but the 2008 latch system has a pin system like you find in most latching systems for car doors. So I immediately panicked thinking I just waisted a lot of money on something I can't use. So I called etrailer with the problem. They really didn't know what to do with the problem so they gave me the number to Stromberg, who makes the tailgate. They were very good and helpful. As it turns out the old style latching system slips over the pins and the tailgate works just great. So if you are considering buying this tailgate I would say go ahead. etrailer will more than likely get more of my business. They were very fair and had great service. I am a happy customer. 32732

The tail gate for 5th wheel is top quality and the paint is excellent. I was a little disapointed with the instructions for installation as it has no instruction on how to install the cable stops to prevent it from going beyond level in the tail gate open position. Also there is nothing in the instructions that state it is for my truck, it does however give instructions for all other brands of pick-ups. It does not mention that the instructions were for my 2010 Chev 3500. Being a retired engineer, this did not give me a problem but I can see that persons of lesser education might be thrown for a loop. 33431

Nicely done Team eTrailer - the Stromberg Carlson 100 tailgate I ordered was exactly as advertised. The installation is as easy as the video shows. If you are looking for a nice looking and very functional 5th wheel trailer tailgate, for an outstanding price look no further. 115511

I just installed the tailgate so I can't speak to it's durability. However, once I figured out the hardware and installed the tailgate it fit perfectly and locked snuggly into place. The instructions were not clear and the photos were too dark to be functional. Once I put the tailgate in place and looked at the hardware I could see how it had to go together and where the rubber bumpers had to go. Glueing the bumpers was a very useful instruction. 409459

Installing the tailgate was not as easy as I thought. The pictures were too small and hard to see. I went on line and was able to see pictures that helped. The channel bumper directions were not very clear.Thank goodness for the pictures. the side insert did not fit. The side inserts from the factory tailgate were too big for the new tailgate and did not fit either. After all said and done I am happy with the new tailgate. 381557

We are extremely pleased with the purchase of our 5th Wheel tailgate. Took only 20 minutes from the box to completely installed, including removal of solid tailgate. We will be recommending etrailer to family and friends. 289799

Took only a few minutes to install the latches on the tailgate. Installed in under two minutes, matching the existing latch and slots that the original equipment came with. The only problem I have seen to date, is that one of the weld spots is beginning to show rust. The instructions said that I should paint over the powder coating, but initially I didn't think that would be necessary, but now I do. 156255

The tailgate arrived right on time. Fit perfectly and looks good. A friend has a 5th wheel tailgate also and said mine looked better and seemed to be better quality. Very happy with the purchase. 104853

the tailgate was received on the date stipulated...very nice looking and very strong..it took around 20 minutes to put the tailgate and latches on..adjustment of the latches was easy..looks good and will last a long time...already used it for hooking up the 5th wheel..so much better than using the regular tailgate thank you hally c. for a,job well done, very polite and courteous 280592

Wish it had 1 release instead of 2 to open it. Did like the insert for the left hand side on the hinge points. Made it fit tight. Will be using it when we pull the 5th wheel camper. Do not need to put down the tailgate when hitching up to the camper. With this tailgate, it will help with fuel economy because of flow thru design. It will hold items in the back of the pickup. 238781


Comments

I like it. On the other hand my wife doesnt. She cannot pull out both sides at once to put the tailgaite down. Very stiff springs

Tail gate is just what I was looking for. Fits good, looks good and works great. I had to make a trip to obtain (2) metric nuts to attach the OEM cables to the gate. I paid Lowe's $0.95 for the self locking nuts. I would have been glad to pay twice as much to be included in the attachments with the gate. This is a required nut and should be included in the gate supplies. 150268

by: Dan K.12/09/2014


The tail gate fit great and is well made. Easy to install. Shipping was incredibly fast. The only down side are the latches. You can't close the gate like you do the OEM gate. You have to pull the latch pin on one side then the other one all while pushing it closed. Not a big deal considering the cost. I will look to etrailer.com first for all my future purchases! 163986

The 5th wheel tail gate you supplied was just as you said it would be. It was easy to assemble, fit perfectly and looks great on my 2011 Chevy Silverado. You can count on my further business and my recommendation to my friends. Thanks for everything, CR 80056

Received in a timely manner - everything there. Had a small paint chip, but since I'm painting it again (manufacturer recommends a 2nd coat), no worries. Easy assembly and with a few spacers on each end, it will be a great addition. And it was priced right, too! 143076

This was just what I wanted - simple and functional. It was very easy to install. etrailer.com delivered it quickly. All I had to improvise was PVC shims on both sides of the pivot points to keep the tailgate centered. It was easy. 287454


Comments

I connected the pull pins with a small plastic-covered wire rope. This made unlatching the the pull pins a one-handed operation and protected the paint from wearing off. I am extremely satisfied. Now if they could put a back-up camera in it to replace the new tailgates - that would be great.

Tailgate was shipped fast. I was a very good fit on my 2008 2500 GMC. Stronger than my old one. Nice finish. Once I figured out how to mount the latches I had no trouble. Every nut, bolt amd bushing came with the order. GOOD SHOW!! 221603
