  • Will Demco Hijacker for Ford Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fit Reese Elite Rails
  • Yes, the Reese Elite rail kit part # RP30868 is the same rail kit as the factory Ford rail kits. So if you installed this rail kit in your Chevy truck you could use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550038. The other Demco hitch you referenced would not fit as it's for the Demco underbed rails.

Since this kit is a universal type it can be installed in pretty much any truck.

  • Comparing Universal vs Custom 5th Wheel Install Kits for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Reese 5th wheel base rail kit # RP30095 is a low-cost universal-fit type that costs less because it can be used on many different trucks. The easiest 5th wheel rail installation comes with a custom-fit kit that is made for your specific vehicle. These cost more and take less time to install because they are vehicle-specific and use existing holes in the truck's frame. Less drilling is required and this is where the time savings comes from.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Bed Rails for 2018 Ford F-150 Compatible With Reese Hitch
  • You can absolutely use the Reese 5th wheel hitch from your 2003 Chevy Silverado in a 2018 Ford F-150.

  • 5th Wheel Adapter to Install PullRite 2700 5th Wheel Hitch in 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Pucks
  • The PullRite model 2700 5th wheel hitch is the version they made to fit into industry-standard above-bed base rails (ISRs) rather than the OEM puck system that is in your 2017 Ford F-350. So to use this hitch in your truck you will just need the Reese Adapter # RP30156 that drops into the pucks and locks in place. This provides the equivalent of industry-standard rails that will then accept the SuperGlide 2700. Please refer to the linked review video.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing Setup for a 2017 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For a 5th wheel installation kit that will work with your 2017 Ram 2500, I recommend taking a look at the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit part # RP50054-58 for inboard rails or part # RP56009-53 for outboard rails. An outboard 5th wheel installation kit will be much easier to install compared to an inboard 5th wheel installation kit. In most cases, the frame brackets used on an outboard kit will have mounting bolts that attach outside the frame rail. On inboard...

For a 5th wheel installation kit that will fit your truck I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails (Inboard) part # RP50074-58 or the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails (Outboard) part # RP56017-53. Inboard installation kits provide a connection point for the base rails and frame...

Let me know what trailer you are looking at if this is the case and I'll be happy to assist.

  • Roller and Rail Kit Recommendation to Install Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2013 Dodge Ram 2500
  • To install a Curt fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed you have to have a rail kit. For that you'd want a custom fit kit like the Curt part # C16426-204 as it will minimize drilling and install time over a universal style kit. Since you do have a short bed truck you are going to need a slider to allow you to make tight turns. What you can do is take the head off of the Q24 that you have and install it on the R5 Roller part # C16570 and you'll have a Q24...

  • Possible Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Solution for GMC C6500 Truck
  • We don't have any custom rail and bracket kits that are going to fit your truck but you might be able to come up with a way to install the universal rail kit part # RP30035 though. This comes with the standard fifth wheel rails that most hitches are designed to fit and L-brackets to install them. Only issue I can think of is that the bed of your truck might be higher or lower than a standard truck bed which will make towing a trailer level a challenge.

  • If you are just using the Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP30035 for your 2013 Ford F-150 then you do not have all of the correct equipment. You will also need the Reese Installation Kit # RP58426. The proper location for your base rails is to measure 29-5/16" from the rear edge of the truck bed to the rear edge of the rear base rail.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for Revolution Pin Box on 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For your 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Crew Cab with 5-1/2 foot bed, the underbed gooseneck hitch will need to be removed in order to use a 5th wheel hitch with a Revolution pin box. The reasoning is that there is not a gooseneck to 5th wheel hitch conversion that will work with the Revolution pin box due to the rotating turret on the pin box. There is too much movement for adapters to work well. So, for your application, I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Carbide...
