Ram Trailer Tow Prep Package

Fifth-wheel hitch mounted on part RP30154 on Ram Tow Prep

Ram offers an underbed mounting system for fifth-wheel hitches as an option on new trucks starting in 2013. This system is designed for maximum convenience and versatility. The entire mounting system is located underneath your truck bed - no parts extend above it. The system will let you hook up a fifth-wheel hitch or a gooseneck ball.

The underbed mounts give you full access to your truck bed when you're not towing. When you want to tow, you install a hitch that fits into the pucks in the bed, or you can get an adapter that fits into the pucks and has slots to fit any standard fifth-wheel hitch.

I have a pro series 15k hitch looking for mounting rails for this hitch to fit a 2020 ram 2500 with 6 1/2 bed and puck set up already in bed from factory 84400

Reply from Chris R.

To use your Pro Series 15K hitch in your new 2020 Ram 2500 all you need is the Rail Adapter # RP30154 . This will drop into those factory pucks and provide industry-standard rails to which the Pro Series will mount. 67635

Can you keep the standard lockable Ram tailgate while towing a 5th wheel trailer with these hitches? 81791

Reply from Chris R.

As long as you have the recommended 5 to 6" of clearance between the bed rails and trailer you shouldn't have any issues with the factory Ram tailgate when towing a 5th wheel. 67218

How much height does the adapter add compared to above bed rails ?For Example a Curt A16 Item # C16120 mounted with Curt Custom Brackets Item # C16427-204Reese Adapter Item # RP30154 Factory PucksDemco Rail Adapter Item # DM6099 Factory PucksI assume the direct fit Curt A16 hitch Item # C16520-16021 the listed height range is accurate at 14-18? 64338

Reply from Jason S.

The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 will add 1-3/8" to height of hitch. So if you put the Curt A16 # C16120 on that adapter it will give you a total height adjustable from 14-3/8" to 18-3/8". The Reese Adapter # RP30154 will add 2 inches so you'd be looking at 16" to 20" total height. The direct puck hitch # C16520-16021 you mentioned is accurate at 14"- 18" directly. 54560
