  • The Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50082-58 is a custom bracket kit for your 2004 Ford F-250 and replaced the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Kit with Brackets and Rails - Ford Super Duty 1999-04 # 50043-6008. I reached out to my tech contact and the brackets of the # RP50082-58 have more access holes and the tabs are slightly different.

  • You are definitely on the right track for picking a fifth wheel rail kit and hitch.

  • Where Should King Pin Sit in the Bed of a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 for 5th Wheel Towing
  • Typically the king pin will be located directly above, or slightly forward of the rear axle on any given pickup. If you were to install a universal base rail kit like the Reese # RP30035 on your 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 the (linked) instructions state that the king pin will be about 2" forward of the axle center. I have attached a picture of the instructions that show where you would install the base rails in relation to your truck bed. I recommend going with the Reese single-jaw 5th wheel...

  • Do Plastic Bed Liners Need to Remove to Install Fifth Wheel Rail Kits
  • When installing a fifth wheel rail kit the rails need to touch the metal of the truck bed. You wouldn't be able to install the rail over a plastic drop-in style bed liner. If it's a spray-in liner though you can install the rail over that.

  • Husky Custom Base Rail Installation on 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • When using the Husky Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # HT31397-686 you will need to drill into the frame of your 2008 Chevy 2500 Short Bed. Husky doesn't make the kits as customized as other manufacturers, so they often still require drilling yet less drilling than a universal kit which is why they give it the custom name. Other manufacturers like Reese and Curt will only state their custom bracket kits are custom if no drilling is required.

  • 5th Wheel Rail Kit Adapter for Fitting Reese Hitch to 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 w Factory Rail Kit
  • We have the rail adapter you need, but it depends on the length of your truck bed since the rail kits are different dimensions for different bed lengths. For the long bed GM trucks with the rail kits the correct adapter is the part # DM6206. Then for the short bed trucks you'd want the part # DM6194. Both kits provide the same type of rails that your Reese hitch would fit.

  • Installing 5th Wheel Rail Kit in 2000 Ford F-150 Without Frame Drilling
  • For your 2000 Ford F-150 you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50042-58 or the Curt # C16437-204 for your industry standard 5th wheel base rails. These will not require drilling into your truck frame for installation because the brackets will utilize holes already in the factory frame. If you already have the rails, then you can use the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16437 for the frame brackets.

If you don't already have a 7-Way connector in the bed of your Ram then I also recommend installing the part...

  • How To Determine if Curt A16 Slider Hitch will Fit Rails in Bed of 2013 Toyota Tundra
  • If the rails in the bed of your family member's truck like what come with the Curt kit # C16304-200 that you referenced and are 22 inches apart on center your Curt 16k slider like part # C16521 will fit and work well. These are industry standard rails which are by far the most common design of rails which nearly all manufacturers match the design of. This allows most hitch and rail kit brands to be able to swap between each other.

  • Which Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fits 2000 Ford F-350 Long Bed

You should be able to locate the towing weight ratings in your copy of the owner's manual, by contacting your nearest Dodge dealer with your VIN, or by adding the curb weight of your pickup (weight when no cargo or passengers are present) plus the weight of any passengers or cargo that you plan on towing with and then subtracting that total number from...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with Bulldog Gooseneck in 2008 Dodge Ram 1500

This will connect to the Bulldog Gooseneck hitch in your truck and give you a compatible 5th wheel hitch. There are other adapters that will make your gooseneck hitch compatible with your 5th wheel camper like the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter - 12" to 16"...

This is because the base rails included in the kit are uniquely designed for the Demco SL model hitches and will not be compatible with any other industry standard 5th wheel hitch.

  • Can 2014 Ford F-150 Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • Yes, a 2014 Ford F-150 can tow a fifth wheel trailer although you need to look in your owners manual to determine what your truck's capacity is. Additionally, you only mentioned short bed but did not specify if that meant 5-1/2' bed or 6-1/2' bed. This is important because if you have a 5-1/2' bed you will need to use a Sidewinder in order to have the proper clearance to make sharp turns and not have your trailer run into your truck's cab.

  • Determining King Pin Position on 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD Short Bed

This is because the rail needs to be in this exact location on your truck so that the brackets that attach to the frame line up correctly. Generally speaking you want the king pin either directly above or just slightly forward of the rear axle. The fact that the king pin is going to line up about...

  • Is there a Custom Sidewinder Wedge for an RBW 5th Wheel Hitch
  • There is a custom wedge available to use a Sidewinder with an RBW hitch. It is wedge # SWW-07. If you look at the Sidewinder manual it states "Note: Truck and trailer must be straight in-line for the wedge to enter into the fifth wheel funnel." It doesn't really mention having to be straight to uncouple but it does make it easier. At an angle there is likely going to be tension on the king pin which is going to make it bind up.

If this is the hitch you have then to install a fift wheel hitch will require only the part # BWRVK3500 for a fixed hitch or part # BWRVK3400 for a slider hitch.

So long as your Valley rails look like these they will accept a Reese hitch or any other brand of industry-standard hitch.

The Sidewinder has to be used too in your application since you have a Ram Box and the Sidewinder is only way to prevent bed rail interference. So what you'd need is a custom fit rail kit for your truck with a fixed hitch that's Sidewinder compatible. So for that you'd want the...

Instead you'd need to go with the Timbren kit part # TABSOSR which would not interfere and would work well for more suspension support. It gives you suspension support when you need it but when unloaded does not affect the ride quality. Also it does not require maintaining air pressure like the air bag kits do.

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring Connector for Bed of 2016 GMC Sierra 3500
  • Sounds you are referring to 7-way wiring ran to the very rear of the truck near the bumper. So what you would need to install a 7-way in the bed of the truck is the 5th wheel 7-way wiring kit part # 50-97-410. This plugs inline to that connector and gives you a harness and 7-way that will reach up to the wheel well. I attached an install video for this kit on a 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 just like yours as well.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Needed to Fit with Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL88398 on a 2008 Ford F-250

This will not only allow you to tow a gooseneck trailer, but you can still tow a 5th wheel trailer...

  • Easy to Install Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 Long Bed
