Product Expert Alexander C

Is this right For you? Product Expert Alexander C says:

Yes, if you:

  • Use your truck bed for other needs and want to take out the hitch often - the head and legs come apart and weigh about 50 lbs each
  • Get annoyed having to jump in the truck bed to open the jaws and like having a handle you can reach from the side instead
  • Like a solid, simple hitch that's easy to use

No, if you:

  • Use a tonneau cover often and don't want to have to take out the hitch to close it
  • Want a hitch that's made in the USA


Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
part number: RP56034-53

Heavy-duty, custom brackets dramatically reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Outboard design ensures simple access to mounting points. Brackets, 10-bolt base rails and hardware included.

Features:

  • Installation brackets mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for 5th-wheel rails
  • Base rails sit in truck bed and allow installation of 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • Fast, simple installation with outboard design
    • Extended-length base rails allow for mounting farther out from truck frame
      • Avoids underbed components for easier access
      • Cuts down installation time by more than half compared with universal kits
    • Custom brackets mount to existing holes in truck frame, minimizing drilling and measuring
  • Thoroughly tested kit is compliant with strict Society of Automotive Engineers guidelines
  • Kit includes brackets, 10-bolt rails and Grade-8 hardware
  • Compatible with B&W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches
  • Sturdy, black powder coated steel resists corrosion


Specs:

  • Base rail dimensions: 48" long x 1-7/8" tall
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Reese's outboard installation kit for your fifth-wheel trailer hitch was designed with safety and convenience in mind. Just like the original custom mounting brackets, these brackets install using existing holes in the truck frame, minimizing installation time. The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended-length rails. These above-bed rails are 5 inches longer than standard, universal fifth-wheel rails so that they will match up with the mounting points on the brackets, which sit below the bed and outside of your truck's frame. The result is a much simpler installation process, wherein most underbed components can be easily avoided. Because you are working outside the frame rails, you also have easier access with your tools and more room to work, making the whole process less of a pain.


The base rails included in this installation kit feature a standard 10-bolt design. Each of these rails attaches to the underbed brackets with two carriage bolts at both ends. A single bolt is used in the center of each rail to further secure it in your truck bed. The result is a set of base rails that remains firmly in place thanks to 10 points of contact.


This entire installation kit is built to be SAE J2638 compliant and has been extensively tested per specified accelerated-life-cycle criteria for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The requirements for testing are based on the European-style test of 900,000 cycles, making this testing process among the most thorough and intensive in the industry.

The first hitch arrived damaged in shipping. The dent was minor but it was on the receiver plate so I asked to return it.

A lot of vendors would have pushed back on an 89 pound box being sent back but the etrailer team set up the return and shipment of the new hitch. No problem.

The new hitch arrived in good shape this afternoon. It took me about a half hour to install with normal tools and a torque wrench. Directions were clear, the parts fit, and I appreciate having the knowledgeable people at etrailer to fall back on.

There are a lot of things owners can fix themselves with the support of quality products, knowledge, and great customer service etrailer delivers.



by: Bill04/30/2022

5 stars for etrailer. Hitch replaces same make and model I used for 20 years. Looks to be just as well built. Had to force it to fit my existing ralls however so it will probably be dificult to remove and reinstall like I normally do. That is a manufacturer problem.


Comments
This hitch will fit into standard 5th wheel rails. It will fit into the 20.50 inches wide by 22 inches long mounting slots on the rails.

by: Randy G11/23/2020

The hitch has worked great so far . The only problem Ive had so far is the release arm sticking in the release position when trying to get it to go back in to close the jaws after pulling out from under my fifth wheel. I have had to nearly force it back in to get it to close.


Comments
works great
Randy G - 11/24/2021

by: Tom09/30/2020

I like the pin being surrounded by the jaws instead of just a bar across the back of the pin. The 16K seems to hold the pin tighter and helping to reduce chucking while towing. I had a slider due to when I bought this last 5th wheel, it was kind of forced onto me saying they couldn't let me leave without a slider with a short bed truck. But after I got home, I ordered a Reece Sidewinder, of which I had one on our first 5th wheel back in 2007. This is my third sidewinder and wouldn't pull without one. The Reece 16K hooks up good and towing without the worry of turning to sharp when getting fuel are days gone by, thanks to these 2 combined together.
The first Reece 16k I received had something just not right and I was having a heck of a time trying to hitch up. Sent Nicole here at eTrailer a picture of the jaws a little misaligned. Nicole got back with me quickly and we had a short conversation, and just a few days later I received a replacement head. That's service!!



by: Chuck 03/27/2021

When I ordered my part (2) packages I just happened to get a very customer focused and knowledgeable person to assist me. Her name is Jaime B. I have ordered from e-trailer in the past ,however I was pleasantly surprised with my service . She actually under promised and over delivered. I like it like that.


Comments
One of few really good buys I have made

by: William 10/11/2021

I have had this hitch for about a year now and have towed our 12K lbs Jayco 5th wheel probably 15 times and it has done great so far. Good hitch, only thing I wish it did was close automatically when it hits the king pin other than that it’s a great hitch.



by: Marcus03/31/2022

Because it was a new model truck, finding the right hitch became a challenge. etrailer was very helpful in sorting it out. 4,000 miles later we are happy campers



by: Ralph07/08/2020

Product is good quality as it appeared --5th wheel itself was not delivered with rest of kit--arrived three days later. Installation easy.
Installation kit fits perfect-easy installation. Only variable was I had pre-existing air springs , so I had to mark and drill the frame brackets and install the air springs on the outside of the brackets--no big deal--worked out fine



by: Joe H.03/31/2019

Delivery was fast and packaged well.
This
is my first 5th wheel hitch and has worked great for me pulling a shorter camper with a long bed 3/4 ton truck. Nice height adjustability to match the truck with the trailer. Good solid feel while pulling.



by: Louis03/16/2020

I spent a whole day installing the Reese 16k hitch and custom quick mounting rails in a 2020 F150. Video was great and I advise you to watch it a couple of times before installing. Paper instructions not so good. If you have a 36 gallon fuel tank, I recommend you to do this install on a lift. I do not recommend you to install on your garage floor especially if you are 67 years old, still sore from laying on my back. You must remove spare tire and heat shield. I installed with tires on and very tight working around large fuel tank area. Going on a test drive to see if everything holds together.



by: Richard 02/01/2022

This is my 3rd Reese 5th wheel hitch. They all do the job perfectly and are too quality.



by: Daniel03/10/2018

Looks like this is going to be a perfect fit for what I need to pull my 2011 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8265WS, 5th wheel trailer with the Revolution pin box. Just had it installed & after many years of driving truck with a 5th wheel, I can tell this is a good sturdy 5th wheel & looks good too.



by: Adam04/09/2021

Nice hitch, relatively easy to assemble & install, took about 1 1/2 hours. Will be trying it out this weekend.



by: Pat 04/13/2020

Hitch arrived well packaged. Easy assembly and it fit right in to my existing rails for the Lil Rocker hitch I was replacing. I haven't towed with it yet but look forward to the security of the jaw clamp over the slide bar.


Comments
No issues with the hitch after many trips with it.

by: Wayne01/14/2022

Everything arrived in great condition. Ordering the Reese fifth wheel was so easy. Any questions I had they answered right away.



by: James 10/25/2021

Hitch was a replacement for my lil rocker. Fit existing rails no problem. Hitch pulled 5th wheel great.



by: Troy 07/20/2021

The hitch was installed on Valley Rails which was previously installed on my 2004 Silverado 3500. The hitch fit on the rails and during the first pull performed outstanding. I pull a 41ft 5th wheel and I am impressed with the double jaw lock.



by: Lorna07/19/2021

Great 5th wheel trailer hitch product. Great customer service.



by: Don P05/20/2021

The service is superior. I ordered on line on Saturday and it shipped the same day. It arrived the following Thursday.
Came in two boxes and took us about a hour to install (the rails were previously installed with the old hitch). Price was very competitive. This is my 3rd purchase from etrailer and won't be my last.



by: Ron03/12/2021

This hitch along with the Reese Revolution king pin works flawlessly on our 2019 Sierra with a short bed. People can not believe we pull a 5er and have no cab contact without using a sliding hitch! Robert is the one that turned us on to this arrangement.



by: Kendall04/04/2022

etrailer gets 5 stars for quick delivery of this hitch. Reese on the other hand gets 0 stars for quality as the first time we hauled with it we got to our campsite and went to pull forward to put the trailer on blocks to level it and a weld broke on the jaw and let the trailer loose and it fell down and went back and bent the tailgate. Then I spent all memorial day weekend trying to get another head to pull 2 1/2 hours home. I did all of the leg work for them only to have to wait for them to make sure that they could pay me for repairs to our truck (3 months). etrailer was great, Reese not so much. So the rating is for the hitch not etrailer.



by: Roger T.03/03/2016

After getting the rear rail installed, I used the hitch to set the front rail. I worked perfectly. I can remove the hitch without any binding. This was a problem with my old hitch on my old truck that was installed by the service department where I bought my original 5th wheel trailer.
This is basically the same hitch as I had before on my old truck and I had no problems with it after towing approximately 37,000 miles over 15 years so I expect that this hitch will give me the same service.


Comments
This hitch is now in my 2016 RAM 3500 and functioning perfectly.
Roger T - 03/03/2017


by: Ron01/05/2017

The hitch has worked as expected. I would expect nothing but from Reese. During our last trip the hitch started to creek so I removed the top and applied a little grease. This unit is working in conjunction with a Revolution king pin box on our 5th wheel. We are very pleased with this unit for our application.
Etrailer has been our go to place for many trailering items. I would recommend them overall for customer and product performance


Comments
Wow, thanks for the product follow up. We have used the Reese hitch a lot this past year traveling out west into South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado etc. Hitch has worked perfectly. For a while I did take advantage of the RVs revolution hitch but found that it was to stressful on the hitch and more difficult to connect to the hitch so I have gone back to a standard 5th wheel configuration. etrailer is my go to supplier for RV stuff unless I have an emergency and need to act on a failure immediately.Anyway thanks for the follow up. Everything is working well here. Just trying to keep warm

by: Henry T01/09/2014

Overall good experience, except the shipping. Not etrailer's fault, UPS separated the packages and the second one to arrive looked like it was drop kicked. The ramp on the plate was bent, and the black coating is cracked but I guess it will still be serviceable. Fit right in place of my prior hitch and I look forward to trying it out soon. Went from a slide bar to the dual jaw hoping to be rid of the chucking during stop and start up.


Comments
Hitch worked as advertised and no more chucking during stop and start, smooth sailing with the new hitch!

Staff was great. Very helpful.



by: Shawn08/28/2019

Great fifth wheel hitch for the money. Gives a much smoother ride than my previous Reese than only rotated front to back. The customer service from etrailer was second ton none. I will definitely purchase from these folks again.

Still satisfied

Great 5th wheel hitch and best price I could find. It fit into the rails on my 2012 Ford F250 perfectly. Very pleased with ETrailer's fast delivery and reliable products.


Comments
I’ve used this hitch to tow my 36 ft 5th wheel over 5000 miles. It has been a very solid and reliable hitch. I’m very pleased with it.

by: Dave. D09/16/2016

I ordered on line. Very easy to do. Hitch arrived about a week later in good condition. I used a uTube video as a learning tool to install the hitch although instructions came with the hitch. Installation was very easy and fit the rails that I already had in the truck. Works as advertised.

Product has worked great. Very satisfied.

Product arrived as scheduled, boxes were in great shape considering the contents.
Installation was straight forward. Around 4 hours to complete due to difficulties of the Toyota chassis. All said and done. I am very pleased with the product and Etrailer.
Will order from them again without hesitation.
Look forward to towing soon..


Comments
Great hitch. Used it to pull a super lite fifth wheel fro Cody, WY to Casper, Wy then from Casper to Odessa, TX. Never had an issue one. It held on to the RV with no problems and is a breeze to connect and disconnect.
Roger - 06/20/2020

by: Michael09/05/2018

Hitch was great....packaging was really BAD....both boxes were busted up and falling apart. need a stronger box for something that heavy. Hitch is high quality as always.


Comments
Excellent...strong hitch ! Recommend highly.
Michael - 09/05/2019


by: MAC09/22/2015

Outboard installation with custom mounts is the only way to go!
Save yourself alot of grief and remove both rear wheels to install. Instruction set is not quite writen to this particular kit. For the needed tool set they require a 1.25 hole saw that you never use. The cat wisker feed wires are fantastic, give that guy a raise for coming up with that idea. Forgett the little insulator squares they give you. Use heavy clear packing tape and wrap two layers on all spacers and the fingers of the custom mounts.

Very patent in regards to them answering all my concern questions. E-Trailer knew exactly what I needed for my new Ford F-150 aluminum truck bed. If the product did not fit, there was no problem to return within 60 days. Delivery was on time. The tracking system was perfect. The follow up was great. The fifth wheel was installed by others, and I am very happy with E-Trailer. Thanks Guys!!!!

2013 FordF-150

picked them up last weekend. haven't installed them but my other unit was for my 2013 Ford 1/2 ton and they were the over the rail brackets which I could not torque to 100 lbs.
these will be a no brainer to install.


Comments
working as prescribed it holds the 5th wheel toy hauler to the head stock and the head stock to the truck body. much better product than the original above the truck frame for torquing nuts.

by: Walt B.08/31/2019

Is this a good hitch. It is great. Such an improvement over my old one. The design makes it much easier to pull the head. The swivel head makes it much easier to back under when the ground isn't level. It seems to perform smoother when pulling also. I had the old slider fixed head. While I purchased a complete set I just used the head and put it on my slider. I then put my old head on the new tower and sold it. It was a win win for me. I just leave it in my truck year round with a tri-fold tonneau cover over it and all I need to do is fold it back, hook up and go. Also what was the best part was how helpful the folks at etrailer are to work with. They will bend over backwards to help. They researched this unit to be sure it would fit the slider towers.



by: Ronald E03/18/2020

Hitch is a strong reliable hitch, always used Reese bumper hitches which are high quality, fifth wheel hitch is of the same quality. Can’t wait till I can use it.



by: Dave M.09/23/2017

Received product by UPS. Two of the three packages were intact however the package that the fifth wheel top plate and frame came in were ripped open. Fortunately all contents were there. Suggest these pieces be shipped in a sturdier box, maybe double thick. Other than that, Reese hitch looks very strong. Will be installing it today. More to come.



by: Matt12/26/2018

Watch the video; makes the job more straightforward. Workmanship and quality were very good; I was dismayed to to find my parts package torn and missing a bolt. Took some real digging to find what turns out to be a very non-standard type of bolt (Grade 8 Carriage)... finally found one in a mechanics toolbox at a local trailer rental place as I needed it right away for a trip. Finally, after getting through my first installation, I could probably do it in 4 hours as there has been a lot of thought and engineering put into the custom kit. First time installers should expect spending more like 6-8 hours for the job.



by: Tom02/07/2022

We’ll built and dependable. Very little maintenance



by: Dave W06/09/2020

Easy to install, I bought the custom brackets for my Silverado. Easy to hook up to, this is my first fifth wheel hitch and it was really very easy to figure out.



by: Ryan S.06/24/2020

Good product for the price, a little noisier than my previous hitch, but that could be because my old 5th wheel was much lighter. Installation seemed easier according to the instructions, however I got the job done.



by: John01/29/2020

The information I received when I called was excellent. I placed the order and two days later the hitch was on my door step. All of the boxes were in good shape and everything appears to be complete. I will install the hitch this weekend and see how we make out. so far so good. Thank you for the great service.



by: Marty K04/11/2020

I’ve had this hitch for about a year and have no issues with it. It is basic, but everything I need. I would definitely buy this hitch again.



by: Wade12/17/2019

Well constructed and great instruction, ship fasted, no damage to the boxes ! The only thing was missing in the package was the cotter pin for the handle!

unlevel ground.



by: Peggy j04/29/2018

The detail and videos were very helpful in making a decision on which hitch to buy. It's an older truck (2000 Ford F350) and it was very helpful as a first time 5th wheel owner to have such good information. Free shipping was a bonus and it arrived fast!

Very easy to install and everything lined up like it was suppose to



by: Marc04/21/2019

I replaced a lower quality slider that introduced so much play during low speed maneuvers and braking/acceleration that it reverberated through the tow vehicle. Once we upgraded to a new fifth wheel with a MORyde Orbital pinbox (which is awesome by the way) we didn’t need a sliding hitch anymore. This basic hitch is perfect for our application and feels very tight. The only negative is that the release handle doesn’t always retract when backing the king pin into the hitch. Otherwise a great buy. And etrailer’s customer service is second to none (don’t ever order anything from camping world).



by: Jim N11/12/2018

Great, easy to use no frills hitch. I purchased this non-slider to use with my Rockwood 8301 5th wheel, because my camper came with the Reese Rovolution pin box. Matches up perfectly with my 2015 Chevy 2500HD shortbed! I've placed many orders over the years with etrailer and the products and service are top notch! Customer service is super knowledgeable and helpful should you need them. As a side note though, the folks that deliver these packages seem to go out of their way to be as rough with these packages as possible. 2 of my packages had been blown apart in transport and re-taped and I was missing some hardware as a result. Of course the people that brutalize these packages in transit could care less if your order is in tact or not, so go through your order thoroughly before you start installation!

Can't thank etrailer enough for helping to get me replacement hardware in a jiff!



by: Brian10/24/2021

Very well made and sturdy! Easy to remove when necessary.



by: Jacob05/13/2020

I have not yet used the hitch. but it seems to be built good. etrailer provides amazing videos on how to install the items so you do not have to spend hundreds of dollars on someone to install it for you. i will be purchasing from them for all my needs that they offer products for.



by: Elizabeth 10/01/2020

The order came quickly and my husband is very pleased with the 5th wheel hitch. He mounted in the truck and hooked up to our trailer and took it out for a test drive. The hitch works excellently and is just as he wanted.



by: 5th Wheeler in Cal08/01/2016

I got this one to replace my Economy slide bar model. The slide bar has issues with uncoupling if there is any pull pressure on the the trailer after you level it up. That happened at two places we go regularly so I moved on to this model. It tows great, no bumping and banging around since it has constant 360 degree contact with the trailer hitch. We love it and it will unhitch on a hill if you ever want to.



by: Dave S.10/10/2016

The product its self is good but there were no installation instructions for it so I had to find them on the net. I was a bit disappointed about that. and it says a 4 hour job, well expect a bit more time.



by: Jim W08/09/2018

The REESE RP30047, 16K double jaws locking hitch, is an excellent 5th wheel hitch. Etrailer.com is a "10" when it comes to marketing and shipping their vendor's products, Their knowledgeable follow-up, helped make my purchase a great on-line experience. It arrived when they said it would.



by: Jason10/11/2018

I just used the Reese fifthwheel hitch to take my camper up to the mountains for my elk hunt and it did extremely well! It was very easy to use and I love the double jaw clamps. The only thing that I wish was different is that it would have been nice if it would have been delivered assembled.



by: Ed08/11/2018

Was a little disappointed in the overall quality of the hitch, had to rework the latch to close easily, the decals had bubbles in them and would of liked all of the hitch to have been made in the USA. The base width was several inches narrower then my original Draw Tite hitch. Used it last weekend and it seemed to function well.

Ordered a 5th wheel hitch and Quick-Install Mounting Kit per e-trailer recommendations. My ordered arrived promptly and the kit included everything I needed for the installation. Good instructions were included and everything installed very well.



by: Joe F03/16/2018

Awesome product, etrailer was spot on with fast free shipping and a great website fitted to my 2014 Chevrolet 3500 Only recommendation is that unless you have the extra time and patience The RP50066-58 (56006) rail kit (with inward facing frame brackets) is not worth the savings. Too tough to get to the bed to frame bolts. Buy the RP56001-53 (56001) rail kit which has the outward facing frame brackets and is far more of a "friendly" rail kit to install.



by: Brad01/16/2018

Great Customer Service at all levels. These people do exactly what they say they are going to do. I spent about $1800 for my fifth wheel, rail kit, sidewinder and custom wedge. This was money well spent as everything works great.



by: Phillip04/07/2019
2017 FordF-150

Installed on my 2017 F-150 Supercrew. Not a no drill install as sold but with a couple of tools it’s a 2 hour install at most. Local RV dealer wanted 1600 for hitch and install and additional 150 for the light plug. I got it all for Etrailer.com for 850 and about two hours later I saved myself a ton of money!



by: Scott09/15/2019

Hitch works great. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. However, removal of the wheel well liners would make installation of the custom rail kit even easier.

I always thought reese was an american company but to my suprise their hitches are made in tiwan. Big letdown!!!!!!


Comments
Reese is an American company, but the hitch is indeed manufactured overseas. For a fifth wheel hitch thats manufactured in the USA, Id recommend going either with Demco, which are manufactured in Boyden, Iowa or B&W, manufactured in Humboldt, Kansas.

I installed the custom rail kit and topped it with this hitch. With about 2k miles on it, it works fine. It has a positive lock when the jaws are closed. It lined up with the rails I installed perfectly. Although this is my first fifth wheel hitch, I am completely satisfied with it.

I ordered fifth wheel hitch rails for my truck on a Friday and I paid for the 3 day shipping and they already arrived on Monday. Super easy to navigate the website and when I asked a question about mounting and which rails and kingpin I needed they responded very quickly!



by: Matt12/26/2018

Just what I expected, no surprises and straight forward installation. Quality of workmanship is evident and pleasantly surprised to find a two piece hitch to make the weight of the hitch more manageable while putting in and taking out.



by: David05/07/2018

Product just arrived and I haven't had time to install but I do have an issue with the way it was packaged. I read many reviews before ordering and some people had torn boxes and or missing parts. The box that the hitch head and parts bag was in arrived inrough shape. The parts bag was ripped open and loose fasteners were in the box and sticking out holes in the box. Luckily it seems that everything made it. I will confirm that when installing tonight. Reese needs to address this. Maybe a separate package for hardware?

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I give etrailer 1 star I would like to give them no stars (less than poor) for this transaction. I received this hitch Thursday 2/10/2022 the box was in a very tattered condition. I opened the box on the next day Friday 2/11/2022 it appeared that the box did not contain all of the pieces for the hitch, looking at the box it showed that there should have been 2 boxes, I received box 1 of 2. I called and spoke with someone at etrailer they informed me that UPS had damaged the second box in shipping, and that they had returned box 2 of 2 to etrailer. I was never informed by UPS or etrailer of what had taken place. I never received any notification that the first box had been delivered. The only correspondence that I have received was an email from Carol C informing me that she was notified that my order had been delivered, she also sent me this link for me to write a review. I have been told by the person that I had spoken to that my missing parts to my hitch would be shipped. It is now 2/14 I still have not received any notification of my parts being shipped, or when I will receive them.

Worked perfectly for my application, installation was easy and it has worked with no issues.

I had only one issue with the hitch within the year. The 2-Jaw locking system handle detached from the jaws and I could not disconnect from the camper. After some ingenuity I did get the hitch disconnected. After troubleshooting I found that the E-Clip External Retaining Ring came off allowing the lever to detach from the jaws. I installed a new clip so far so good.

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I purchased the Reese dual jaw slider and install bracket kit. Everything arrived in three days in perfect condition. After watching the install video and reviewing the enclosed instructions I installed the assembly myself. It took approximately 4 hours . As you can see I also did additional steps, cutting the rubber bed mat to fit around the rails. Also undercoating the brackets to blend in the wheel wells. Etrailer is definitely the place to go for all your RV needs.

I received the Reese 5th wheel 16,000 lb slider hitch from etrailer in June 2019; installed it in July 2019. Took around five hours to install the base rail kit and Reese hitch start to finish. So far so good, this heavy duty slider hitch works flawlessly with my F250/fifth wheel combo. It arrived in multiple boxes, had excellent instructions and an operating manual. For myself and other do-it-yourselfers, etrailer provides excellent support and installation videos to help with the install.

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Instructions are very good, all parts came with the hitch and were well protected.
This is the first time I've ever put one of these hitches together so I read the instruction thorough.
There was some lubrication that was required.
It took me 1 1/2 hours.
The only thing I can add is when installing the upper handle for the release pin, it had burrs on the inside of the handle and made it difficult to slide onto the tube.
Make sure you check for burrs and deburr before installing. I would still give them 5 stars.

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


once i finally got the bottom platform to fit it went together quite well. It is really heavy for a 74 year old to wrestle around but i have a 40 year old son to help. Have never had to slide it back to back the fifth wheel up but have not had any close quarters to deal with. I would imagine that one of these made out of aluminum would be really expensive and probably not as strong.

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Being a first time 5th wheel owner and After researching for the right 5th wheel hitch for my 2011 ext cab chevy Z71 4wd. and the best prices i went with the reese 16 K slider hitch. A must for a 6 1/2 ft bed.
And etrailer had the best price and were very helpful answering all my questions
The hitch arrived in 3 days,
One of the 2 boxes was a little torn up but nothing was damaged,
The instructions were great,and it had more than enough hardware needed for different apps.
I had 2. choices for the mounting brackets,I went with the custom fit not the universal the custom brackets are strong and fit perfect.
I watched a couple install videos online,there were not many on my truck people said you have to cut out your exhaust and your heat shield and drop the gas tank.I did not have to drop my gas tank i just slightly bent down the heat shield to reach above it then pushed it back up.
I used the Allen button head bolt for the left front and had my wife spin the bolt with a long extension and ratchet while I held the nut and washers with a magnet and my finger tips,it was kind of a (pima) and took a little time but way better than dropping my tank.
I did call Reese with a couple questions and suggested to use stronger shipping boxes.
The only thing I had to adjust was the support for the parking brake cable.
I did the hole job on the ground in my yard
This also was a good time I replaced my rear brakes,checked my spare tire psi,and llubed my cable for the spare lift.
Every one was verry nice and helpful from etrailer and Reese.
I wish I was better with computers and could of made a video

Ordered the Reese 16K square tube slider on Wednesday and received it on Friday even using the free shipping. That is a remarkable delivery on any product especially a very heavy 5th wheel hitch. Assembly requires only a few basic tools. Took my time and within a couple of hours had it installed and ready to use. Bed rails were already installed.


Comments
Have towed my 36 Cedar Creek 5th wheel about 600 miles with the hitch. No problems. Does what it is designed to do. You can spend more if you wish but this is a good solid hitch. Also would recommend etrailer.com to anyone as the place to buy. Keep up your great service.

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Overall the product seems to be good quality. The instructions could be a lot more clear. After calling Reese, even the guy on the phone agreed that the spacers provided should be shown as going in above or below the bed. Unfortunately with the size of the U spacers provided, there would be no way to get the nut on the length of bolt sent. Also there were lock washers in the package which the CS rep didn't know what they were for either. Finally, the cotter pins provided are weak, 2 broke already and the handle to adjust the slider didn't have holes drilled for the cotter pin to keep it in place so i just drilled it myself. As a side note, the way the pins lock it in to make it removable, it has quite a bit of play which you can then hear when backing up or starting off.. Using on a Ford F250 2015 6-3/4 bed, pulling a FR 33BHOK (about 11k loaded).

Review from a similar Reese Fifth Wheel in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I'm very happy with the product, service and price. I originally had a used non sliding Reece fifth wheel hitch installed in my 6 1/2 ft. Tundra Bed. It didn't have enough clearance for backing into some spots and my new truck cab got dented ($1,700 repair bill). This sliding fifth wheel is the answer, very easy to install on same bed rails.

BTW etrailer doesn't recommend a non sliding fifth wheel for my truck. Smart.

I currently have a 2014 GMC 2500 four door short bed and I am going to replace the Husky 15K 5th wheel unit I have because the head on the unit doesnt have the pivoting motion I would like to have for unhooking and hooking up on unlevel ground. My rails are the Reese RP5066-58 and the center points where the hitch fits into the rails is 22 from front to back on each side as you are looking at the unit. What I am looking at is purchasing the RP30051 5th wheel hitch but I was wondering if the 22 center points that my rails currently have will work without having to re-drill and move them. If this unit isnt compatible with the 22 centers can you let me know what distance it requires and if there is another unit that may fit better let me know that also, thanks

Most of the big 5th Wheel manufacturers, including Reese and Husky, use the same mounting patterns for the hitch legs so that you can swap if you need to. The Reese # RP30051

Product is as it was described. Straight forward installation. Only problem I had was minor shipping damage. The ear of the 5th wheel plate was bent from it being dropped I would guess. Better packaging would've solved this...

Fast shipping, a couple small spacers were missing from parts, luckily I had somethings laying around that worked. Went together fairly easily with only minor changes to brackets. Couldn’t beat the price here locally.

  • Custom 5th Wheel Install Kit Recommended for Use with Air Spring Suspension on 2019 Ford F-150
  • I appreciate the time you've spent researching all the different products; I'm happy to offer you my expert recommendation to facilitate your purchasing decision. The Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16120 and the Reese 16K # RP30047 are very similar but I'm going to give the advantage to the A16 because of its interlocking jaws which provide a superior connection, built-in color-coded lock indicator, and built in zerk fittings (easy lubrication points).

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch For A 2015 Ford F-150 With A 55 Bed
  • For the 2015 Ford F-150 with the 5.5 bed it is not recommended to use a slider because of the bed length. The rails are installed over the axle because of the vertical load from a fifth wheel or goose neck trailer. Because the truck has a 5.5 bed it requires a Sidewinder to give you the clearance needed when making turns. Setting the hitch height is determined when setting up the hitch. Typically when we install them we set them at the middle height and that is usually enough. If you set

  • Why Is My 5th Wheel Hitch Chucking - Making Noise at Start/Stop?
  • On all hitches, in all brands, there will be some play forwards and backwards, side to side, and even up/down. If there was not you would hear the awful screeching of metal on metal, similar to weight distribution systems on bumper pull travel trailers. This cannot be avoided. Some people report improvement with lubrication and/or a lube plate, but I do not understand why that should work. I suspect that the capture jaw design may not hold the king pin as tight as other designs. Since

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch And Sidewinder For A 2021 Ram 3500 With RamBoxes
  • I still recommend using a rotating pin box due to your 2021 Ram 3500 having RamBoxes. The weight capacity of the pin box and the 5th wheel hitch are the other important factors here. Since you don't have a camper yet you don't know what the GVWR is. The Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047 I recommended before has a GTW of 16,000lbs and the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928 has GTW 20,000. You can always go high and get the heavier weight capacity hitch but it will cost

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For A 2021 Ram 3500 With Ram Boxes
  • Since your 2021 Ram 3500 has Ram boxes you will most definitely want a rotating pin box like the # RP61422 to prevent the pin box from coming into contact with the bed rails. This will also increase the turning radius because you'll be pushing the pivot point back 22". Pin boxes have specific bolt patterns so you'll need to find the correct replacement for your trailer's current pin box. If you need help determining the correct fit then just send me some pictures of your current pin box

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Compatibility with Universal Base Rail Installation in 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • ISRs, or industry-standard rails, will accept any 5th wheel hitch, slider or fixed, from any major brand so long as it is intended for normal base rail installation. You can refer to the linked image of base rails that shows their three compatible mounting leg distances: 10-, 20-1/2- and 29-inches. Front-to-back spacing is standardized at 22-inches between rail centers. For a wiring harness for the truck bed you can use # 20110.

  • Your 2015 F-550 cab and chassis with custom service body will be challenging to fit with 5th wheel base rails and a 5th wheel hitch due to the limited clearance you have for both the base rails themselves and for the hitch/pin box at the tops of your side boxes.

  • How to Mount Reese 30047 5th Wheel Hitch to 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 With Puck System
  • In order to mount your Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047 to your 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 with the factory puck system, you will need an adapter because the hitch won't fit directly in the pucks as it is not designed for that. So what you'll need in order to use this hitch is the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6333. You will simply attach this adapter to the puck system in your truck and then attach your Reese hitch to the adapter

  • Reese Base Rail Kit Measurements for a 2001 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The Reese 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30047 itself will just sit in base rails. If you are talking about where to configure the base rails on your 2001 GMC Sierra 2500 then we first need to determine which base rail kit that you have to ensure that you can follow the correct instructions. Most people purchase the base rails from the same manufacturer of the 5th wheel hitch so if you purchase Reese base rails you have either part # RP30035, part # RP50064-58, or part # RP56007-53.

If your truck is equipped with the pucks, you can use either an adapter like part # RP30154, which would allow you to install any fifth wheel hitch that uses industry standard fifth wheel bed rails like part # RP30081.

  • Since your 2012 Ford F-150 has a 5-1/2 ft bed, the first recommendation I have is to replace your Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Connection, # AM3200, with a fifth wheel hitch like the Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30047, that you referenced. The Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Connection is not recommended for trucks with beds shorter than 6 ft.

  • Does Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit RP56034-53 Fit 2022 Ford F-150 and Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Yes, the Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP56034-53 is the correct fit for your 2022 Ford F-150 and is also a fit for your Pro Series fifth wheel hitch as well. This is the outboard style of rail kit that has brackets that attach to the outer sides of the truck frame instead of the inner side which is why the rails are longer at 48 inches compared to what you had previous. The outboard style rail kits are much easier to install but the rails are a little longer.

This is where the back edge of the rear rails will be. Then what you would do is get that rail into position and use the hitch, or just its legs, to locate the position of the forward rail.
