Video Transcript for Reese Accessories and Parts RP30138 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese elite series under bed gooseneck trailer hitch head kit, has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now this gooseneck trailer hitch head is designed to specifically fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks that have either the original equipment Ford rails or the Reese elite series rails. Now the Reese elite series rails we also sell separately on our website, part number RP30126. This is an under bed design, so it ensures full access to your truck bed when this gooseneck ball is removed from the hitch head. It is a bolt in no drill installation, includes all the mounting hardware right here to install the head to the under bed rails. The pop in ball, gooseneck ball right here fits securely. It's very easy to insert and remove.

All you have to do is right here on the ball itself, you lift, turn this lever to unlock it. Then you just drop it in there and then when you turn it, it'll lock it right into place, keeps it from rotating or moving around. Uses the built-in ball bearing system. To remove it, just pull up rotate it and you can see there's the ball bearing system that it uses to lock it into place. Just drop it in, turn it, simple as that.

Does come with the two safety chain hook ups, they are included. These attach directly to the power pucks built into your gooseneck rails for simple mounting and removal. Then you just hook your safety chains to these hooks. Comes also with this nice rubber cover. Just remove the ball. The rubber cover's nice because it'll keep this ball hole free from any dirt or debris building up in it when the ball is removed.

Again you just pop that on there and then since all this is underneath the bed, you have full truck bed access. Comes with this nice heavy duty storage bag, which will keep the ball in good condition when it's not being used and it's easy to access. Few specs on this, the towing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or tongue weight capacity is 6,250 pounds and the ball diameter is your standard two and 5/16 gooseneck ball size. But again just to show you how this would work, just pull up on this to unlock that, drop it into place, turn it, and it locks it into place. But that should do it for the review on the Reese elite series under bed gooseneck trailer hitch head kit with a 25,000 pound weight capacity..

I have a 2016 Ford F250. My truck didn't come installed with any hitch equipment other than the stock bumper hitch. I insulted Reese Elite Series rails under the bed and have pulled my 5th wheel just fine since. Recently, I purchased a new 5th wheel trailer and the dealer tossed in an Andersen Ultimate Hitch 2. The only problem is that my truck hasn't been equipped with a gooseneck hitch. This product solves that problem, integrates with my current setup, and is incredibly easy to install. Can't wait to test it out on the road this weekend. Here's my current setup: 2016 Ford F250 Air Lift Air Ride System with compressor Reese Elite Rails with Gooseneck Hitch Kit 448210

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


Will try to keep this as real as it gets out there. 2015 F250 XLT Crew Cab 8' Bed Ordered the Reese Elite Gooseneck and Barger 90 degree wiring harness. Received the gooseneck hitch and harness quickly. Free shipping got here in two days. Item came in two boxes. The rails were poorly packaged. Box was basically open and beat to hell, leaving markings on the rails' paint. Didn't bother me, but might others. The pucks were loose in the box and were lucky they did not fall out. The second box with the ball, ball mount, harness and misc. hardware was packed so well it took about 5 minutes to take off all the staples and then each product was individually boxed inside. Wish they would treat the rail box with the same care. Instructions are ok. Used the online install video instead. The video is slightly simplified as getting the nuts on the bolts is a slight challenge for a one man install. I was able to do the entire installation by myself with the exception of the four rail-to-frame bolts. Getting these snugged up to the point of being able to torque took two people simply because the nuts are hidden on the backside of the rail...particularly the driver-side front...which is slightly behind the gas tank, but still accessible. My F250 is factory lifted 4-5" so I did not have to remove the rear wheels, nor did I have to remove the spare tire or heat shield. Lower trucks will need the rear wheels pulled. Installing the ball mounting plate took some doing. Got one bolt on then decided to actually install the ball into the plate from above pulling the plate tight below. I used vice grips to basically keep the plate mounted tight rather than trying to lift it from underneath with one had and bolt it with the other. For me the most time consuming part of the project was getting the darned bed bolts off to lift the right side. Broke the T50 bit they supplied and then two others. Finally gave up and ground off two of the remaining bolts...and ordered replacements. Tip for those doing this on their own, you may want to spray the bolts from under with PB Blaster the day before you intend to install. I forgot and the issue was likely that the bolts were rusted. The wiring harness was a breeze, although I wish a shorter version was available. (Perhaps I missed it). Had to loop/zip tie about 2-3' under the bed. Connecting between the factory connectors did require me to pull the mounting plate. Was a bit tight to just slip the new connector in. Also, working the harness thru the hole in the bed side was a bit tight. Install probably took 10 minutes after getting the holes drilled. Total install time for this slightly skilled guy was about 3-1/2 hours...after the bed bolts fiasco. Oh...and did it all with a cast on the left arm. Ha! Now to see how she tows! 430852

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


Item was received well packaged. All parts were received as expected. I wish I would have taken pictures of box when it was received or as I installed it on my 2015 F250 but rest assured it fit into my Ford with the 5th wheel prep package quite easily. Directions were adequate. My only issue was I did not know if the pre-asembly of the base was torqued correctly. There was no mention of it in the packaging and I do not own a torque wrench so it would have been comforting to know that it was done properly before shipment. However it appeared to be okay and I had no issues towing my 5th wheel the 15 miles from the dealership to my home. Also there is no mention prior to ordering that you need lithium grease to properly lube the moving parts. Make sure you have on hand prior to assembly. Overall, excellent product and I am definitely please with it and highly recommend it. 203214


Comments

I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase one year ago of this hitch. We have towed our 32 crusader across the country and back via different routes with no issues. I have read where others find it heavy to lift in and out of the truck bed. I would too except I remove the hitch plate to lighten the load so that I am lifting two relatively lite pieces instead of one heavy piece. We take the 5th wheel out on the road about every two months so I am happy with how I can separate the two in order to lift them in or out of the truck bed.Extremely easy to install, less than 5 minutes. I am totally satisfied with this product.

My Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch arrived UPS. 143lbs and used a hand dolly to take off the truck and wheel to my garage. Came packaged ok. Pre-assembled and everything was included. Read the Manual, which for older people helps, showing lube and parts, install info etc...referring back to the manual/instructions. Used a wooden table(same height as my tailgate) to wheel it right up to the gate and slid the hitch on a piece of cardboard(from the box) into the position of the puck system. Moving the base first then the hitch plate next. The hitch install was simple and easy. Did not need any help. I did call customer service and made a slight 1/4 turn adjustment to two legs for a tighter fit. There again referring to the manual/instructions provided with the hitch. Very pleased with the hitch over all. It served its purpose and I believe will give us many years of service. We pull a 5th wheel gvwr of 11769lbs and completed over 1200 miles of safe towing. Pleased with my purchase. Thank you. 159385

I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather! 296158

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


I have installed this hitch 4 times. It is a solid piece. With a little care in the mounting adjustments, there are no rattles or noises, even when the camper is not connected. The only problem I have is the instructions indicated drilling 4 3" inch holes in the bed. A 2 1/4" set of holes is more appropriate. They leave too much room for installation error. I mount the rails below and use a pointed bolt from the bottom to mark the hole location to drill the bed. Other than that - I think this is a great hitch. 125537

Fantastic! I would recommend this hitch to anyone who wants a quality product.

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


I have owned B&W, Curt and Reese Hitches for 5th wheel trailers. When I recently purchased a toy hauler I needed a heavy duty hitch for the 20,000# load. I decided to spend the extra money and get the Reese because of previous good experience and fitting the installed pucks in my F350. The Reese felt very light when I unpacked it. The parts are all made in China or Mexico. Assembly and installation took 25 min. The release mechanism feels cheap. It is difficult to make sure the pin is fully seated in the hitch. 2x it looked seated and I was able to install the locking pin and the trailer came out of the hitch! I always do a test pull in forward and reverse before pulling out onto the road. First time it came out I caught it on the test pull, second time it looked good w the test pull but 30' down the driveway it came out and crushed my bedside and tailgate. I would recommend the B &W or Curt before buying the more expensive but inferior Reese. 397426

This is a very handy piece of equipment that i.use but normally use the 5th wheel hitch. When I pull a gooseneck I remove the 5th wheel hitch and install the gooseneck hitch within minutes..

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


Purchased for a 2006 Silverado Crew Cab Duramax. Previous owner left the underbed portion of the assembly. The actual ball mount is very easy to install with detailed instructions. Plastic trim on top is sort of cheap with unreliable double sided tape from the manufacturer, which I will have to replace. I would not recommend for lifted trucks as the ball sits approx 6 inches higher than a hideaway turnover type, unless you have that much room to adjust your gooseneck trailer. Other than that, I am pleased. 446119

The Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit was perfect fit for my 2014 RAM 3500 with the factory installed gooseneck prep kit. Once it arrived, my wife and I had no problem installing and removing any of the components from the kit. Being able to put all parts in the handy carrying bag is a bonus to. As for etrailer.com, delivery was faster than expected and much appreciated. The video and reviews on the website for this product (not to mention the price) were the main reasons why I purchased this product and purchased it from etrailer.com. If I had one con, it would be that ball hitch needs a sleeve to protect it from being dinged or scratched in the carrying bag, but no big deal. Thanks etrailer.com! 178262

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Accessories and Parts


When the package arrived, I set to opening it, (very well packed). Everything that I ordered was there. Got the Gooseneck adapter figured out and got the kingpin collar installed. After I moved the truck so that I could place the adapter under the fifth wheel assembly the set up was very simple. Setting up the ball and the adapter took me about 1.5 hours to complete. Very good equipment. Would recommend to anyone that wanted to have the versatility in towing options. Sorry, no photos. The reason I went this way was due to the cost of a fifth wheel hitch for the 2016 Ram 3500/ with the pucks per-set in the bed and on the frame this worked out to be a little less expensive to do. 330572

This hitch looks well made and thought out. Connecting it to the bed of my Super Duty is a snap with the cam locks. I love how I have a flat bed when it's removed due to the Ford under bed fifth wheel rail kit. I'd buy it again. My only two minor negatives are: 1. It's a heavy beast. Much more than my old hitch. It pushed me to buying an overhead hoist for the garage, which makes putting in and taking out the hitch so much easier. It was a blessing in disguise. 2. The handle isn't easily removable like my old hitch. I bike on my vacations and when driving to the trailhead I put a bike on either side of the hitch. Now I have to keep a ratchet handy to remove the handle. 99373

My entire experience with etrailer.com was excellent. I spent numerous hours researching the hitch and tonneau cover set up I wanted for my 2014 Ford F250. The majority of my time was on the etrailer.com website reviewing Q&A, installation guidance and videos, and expert advise. I chose the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitch and the BakFlip F1 tonneau cover. Both products arrived within 10 business days. Installation was as easy and straightforward as expected. The BakFlip F1 really dresses up my F250 and the BakFlip technology makes it very easy to use and gives me full access to my truck bed as needed. The Reese hitch has performed flawlessly. 132420

Wonderful experience. The Reese Elite Pop-in Ball and Safety Chain Attachment was exactly what I needed to adapt a gooseneck trailer to my 2011 F350 Super Duty. Designed specifically for mating with the factory installed fifth wheel and gooseneck mating plate that came with my vehicle, the Elite Pop-in Ball and Safety Chain Attachment requires no welding or bolt installation. The entire kit can be installed and removed in less than (1) minute. It is a well made product that has met all of my expectations. I will recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for quality, well priced trailer and trailer accessories. 3262

This adapter is well made, nicely presented and very easy to assemble and install. It allows the Reese SIGNATURE SERIES 5th wheel hitch to double as a standard goose-neck hitch. Once assembled and installed the first time you can easily swap between the above-bed 5th wheel hitch and this goose-neck hitch in less than 5 minutes. The only downside is the steep price for this adapter. And etrailer was very helpful in reviewing their location with respect to mine to determine the exact UPS transit time to get me the hitch quickly but without wasting money on excessive shipping...

My Hitch came fully assembled, easy to install in my 2015 Ford F350 with factory rails, A 1 1/2" in box end wrench works great to tighten the puck nuts if you have it, If not the provided wrench works, its just a little difficult due to confined spaces. I had it adjusted and installed in about 30 minutes. Have a little axle and lithumn grease on hand for the installation. The grease cert was a great idea from reese for lubing internal part with out removing the head. A 12'' lube plate is needed if u don't like greasing the head, it just makes things easier. 217592

Great price for a top quality 5th wheel trailer hitch. There are other similar hitches to this B&W, but this is the best and the same as Ford's OEM one costing much more. Some assembly is required, just fitting to truck bed and locking/pinning the head mounting is required. One thing that is not mentioned on this website is the pre-mount height of head is 15-3/4 high, the most used height for most truck and trailers. 352837

Overall, nice hitch. A little sensitive to "off center" coupling - it likes a very straight and very level shot, despite the advertised wider entry opening. Not happy with the paint on the receiver pate - chipped and rusted easily. Easy to install and remove - comes off in two pieces resulting in lower weight to lift off the bed. Pops into the Ford puck system without problems. 409139

I bought the Reese Elite pop-in ball for my 2013 Ram3500 and put it to use with a heavy load. It fits perfect and is easy and fast to install or remove. I am very happy with it and can't understand why anyone would want a different system. The safety chain hook-ups are good also, but require a large hook as a smaller hook won't work. I will recommend this product to anyone. 194495

I found this gooseneck package to exactly what I was looking for. Super easy to install and easy to tuck away behind the seat. etrailer.com did a great job getting it to me! The original email said it would be shipped in 1-7 days, I thought that it would be a week or so before I saw it, but it arrived at my house in 3 days!!!! Very Happy Thanks!! 38959

The Reese adapter fit excellent and Emily H. was very helpful in the selection process for a correct fit in my truck. The price was half that of the dealer so Bravo! since I believe both are made by Reese. I have not used it yet but will very soon. It arrived on time the nice little carry bag is an added bonus for easy storage behind the back seat. 256129

haven't used it yet. Familiar with hitch. Use all the time around farm. Just haven't used one with quick insertion and exit. (buttons) have now the one with lock under fender. Pick-up is new and wanted to get product with OEM hitch. Only thing is I should have spent a couple bucks and had it come sooner instead up ground ship. No big deal Thanks 411229

5th Wheel hitch makes towing easy. The trailer I bought would turn without the slider but I can slide the hitch back and maneuver the trailer in very tight quarters. Hitch was too heavy for me to lift but I use my engine hoist to lift hitch in or out all by myself with ease. I made a cart that rolls into the garage when not in use. 337372

I called etrailer to inquire about a hitch for my Ram 3500. I was quickly connected with a customer rep and she had me set up with a hitch in just a few minutes. The hitch shipped the same day and I received it in two days! The quality of the hitch seems good. Easy to install and has a bag to store everything. So far very happy. 446510

Product arrived quicker than I anticipated for my new '17 f350. The ball and chain anchor points installed with ease. This product for this price is a steal. Fantastic customer service over the phone and email. Ford has the same thing but for $415!!!!! You won't be disappointed. I'd definitely suggest to a friend. 351945

I bought this kit as a spare. I'm not willing to take out the ball each and every time I drop the trailer at a horse show. This kit I will keep in my trailer, in case some scumbag decides to steal the factory installed kit(which is the same as this kit). Loved that it came SO quickly. Thanks so much 68866

Cathy T. was amazing. She was very helpful and extremely knowledgable. If not her help, I would have ordered the wrong equipment for my truck. The Reese 18K Elite was perfect for my 2012 F-450 and exactly what I needed. It took less than 20 minutes to mount it to my truck. Thanks again Cathy. 60980

Awesome!! Quick shipping!! Fit right in my Ford with the factory system in the bed. Easy to install. Preassembled. Works great!! Takes a little time to adjust properly the first time but once it's adjusted it takes 2 min's to put it in truck or take it out. It' worth the cost!!! 359926

  • Did Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package Come on the F-250s or Short Bed Trucks
  • The factory underbed prep package was available on the F-250 and F-350 but only on the long beds. The aftermarket kit, # RP30126, can be installed on the short bed models. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. This kit does not include the gooseneck hitch portion, only the 5th wheel portion. To add the gooseneck you would need # RP30138.

  • Installation Kit and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ford F250
  • The custom install rail kit for the Reese Elite hitch is # RP30126 and will work with Reese Elite and Signature Series 5th wheel and gooseneck trailer hitches. The proper hole size to drill is 2-3/4 inches (page 5 in the instructions) and you will see a link to the instructions. If you plan on adding a gooseneck trailer hitch head, it's part # RP30138. It's an underbed gooseneck hitch that includes the removable Pop-In ball, mounting hardware and safety chain loops. The gross towing...

  • Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 w/ Factory Puck System Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer
  • Although the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, will not work with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156, I do have a solution for you. Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit, # RP30138, in your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory puck system. This offers a bolt-in, no drill installation which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your truck. Just one hole in the bed for the gooseneck...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package
  • The king pin is the large pin on the trailer. For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit the 2012 Ford F-250 with the factory prep package you have a couple of options. First, the prep package was designed for use with the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches. If you have a long bed truck use # RP30142 with an 18k capacity or # RP30871 with a 26.5k capacity. If you have a short bed then you will need a slider, # RP30144, with an 18k capacity. The other option is to use an adapter,...

If you would like to add an under-bed fifth wheel kit to your 2013 Ford Super Duty, you can install the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail Kit, # RP30126.

  • Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F350
  • As long as you have a Reese Elite Gooseneck Hitch in the bed of your 2013 Ford F350 then the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP30137 would work for you. Or if you have the Ford Hitch Prep package with the gooseneck hitch built into then all you would need is the # RP30137. If you have the hitch prep package without the gooseneck hitch you would need a Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit # RP30138.

  • Recommended Under-Bed 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Mounts for 2015 Ford F250 Long Bed
  • I'm not sure what Ford charges for their prep package, but we certainly offer the aftermarket version. In my experience, aftermarket parts are usually much less expensive than their OEM counterparts. Starting with the rail kit that bolts to your frame and provides the pucks, you'd need part # RP30126. If you add part # RP30138, you'd be able to tow gooseneck trailers, as well. For a fifth wheel hitch, Reese offers an 18K and a 26.5K hitch that would fit directly into the pucks, for the...

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Towing Options for 2012 Ford F250 Short Bed W/ Ford Factory Tow Prep Pkg
  • For the 6 foot 8 inch truck bed, you would need either use a sliding fifth wheel hitch or install a Reese Sidewinder in place of your existing pin box on your fifth wheel. If you don't use a sliding hitch, the front corners of the trailer loft can contact the rear of cab during turns. Which can be hard on the trailer as well as the truck. For more information about the Sidewinder, take a look at the article I've linked. If you use the Sidewinder, you would be able to use the B&W # BWRVK3300. B&W...

  • Not at all, I checked the installation instructions for the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit # RP30138 and you will not need to remove the bed of your truck to install this hitch in your 2013 Ford Super Duty with the Underbed Rail Kit part # RP30126. You might need to lower the spare while torquing the install hardware, but that's it.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Ford F-350 with Reese Signature Series 5th Wheel Hitch
  • In order to install a gooseneck trailer hitch in your 2008 Ford F-350 you are going to have to remove the 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit. None of the Elite/Signature series gooseneck hitches will fit the install kit on your truck. But what you can use is the above-bed gooseneck trailer hitch, # RP30845. It will fit in place of the hitch so you can swap them out when needed.

However, if you have the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite, # RP30073, the Reese gooseneck hitch # RP30138 will not mount between rails of this rail.

The rail kit is compatible with the # RP30142 Elite Series 18K hitch you looked at, as well as the 26.5K version, part # RP30871.

  • Underbed 5th Wheel Installation Kit and Gooseneck Hitch for a 1999 Ford F-250
  • It sounds like your 2012 Ford F-350 has the factory prep package that uses the underbed mount for a Reese Elite Series hitch such as # RP30142. The Reese underbed mount that fits your 1999 Ford F-250 is # RP30073. But this system cannot have the gooseneck hitch added to it. So to be able to tow a gooseneck trailer too the easiest solution is to use gooseneck plate # RP30845.

  • Adding Both a Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to a 2014 Ford F-150
  • The gooseneck plate # RP30138 will not fit the under bed installation kit # RP30064 for your 2014 Ford F-150 but there are other ways to have both a gooseneck hitch and 5th wheel hitch. You can use the B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1104-5W. Then when you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer you can use companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W for a long bed truck or # BWRVK3400-5W for the slider version for a 6-3/4 foot short bed truck. I have included links to videos for all 3 of these parts for you.

For a slider hitch you would want the part # RP30144 which fits the rail kit and then for a gooseneck hitch part # RP30138. The hitch also comes with a 7-way to install in the bed of your truck so you would be set.

I confirmed this with my contact at Reese. This will be a great setup to use for the short bed on your 2014 Ford F-350.
