No, if you:

  • Don't want to do the extra work needed to clear out paint in bolt holes and threads
  • Use a tonneau cover often and want to be able to close it without having to take out the hitch

Forged, Self-Latching Jaw

Self-Latching Jaw

The one-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel hitch provides absolute security with its wraparound design. Increased jaw-to-king-pin contact results in not only a stronger connection, but less noisy rattling and stiff chucking as well.


The jaw is also always ready to receive, so you don't need to use the handle to open it before backing up toward your trailer. As long as the bail pin is removed from the latching handle, the jaw will accept the king pin as it enters the hitch.


Finally, the jaw is self-latching, so it will automatically secure your trailer's king pin when it moves into the jaw.


Quiet, Comfortable Ride

Pivot Bushings

In addition to the tight jaw tolerance, a close connection between the head and the pivot bushings further reduces rattle and movement. And because the pivot bushings are independent from the head, they can be tightened to ensure a strong connection over time.


King Pin Indicator Prevents High Pinning

King Pin Indicator

This M5 hitch features a built-in king pin indicator to ensure proper hookup. This indicator is located on the back of the head along with a V-shaped notch that are both visible from the cab of your truck. The V-notch is lined up with the jaw at the front of the hitch, and can be used as a guiding point to line the king pin up with the jaw as you back up your truck. The jaw also has an internal plate that keeps the king pin from entering if it is too high to enter safely. As a result, the king pin indicator will only change from red to green if the king pin is fully engaged in the jaw.


Easy-to-Use Latching Handle

Lever and Hitch

This hitch's handle is designed for smooth motion and effortless operation. It requires only 2 fingers to use and won't bind up as you pull. In addition, the handle is long, so it's easy to access from outside of your truck bed. And the ergonomic grip makes it comfortable to hold and pull from different angles.

This would be a three but etrailer's customer service is excellent. Everyone I've dealt with has been exceptional.

Reese needs to get their act together. Three month backorder (okay COVID-19 has everyone backed up). Finally get the order and the release handle grip is destroyed, just crumbled almost like it was cooked. I have to adjust the pucks, which is expected, but Reese installed the Carter pins, which are a [beast] to remove in order to adjust the puck, suggestion Reese just leave them out for the installer to install. The the final [blow] from Reese on top of their otherwise great paint job, the bolt holes for the assembly are filled with paint, Reese howabout running a thread chase through these threads so the installer doesn't risk cross threading the bolt, it's just the small things that would make an otherwise outstanding hitch better.

Thanks for your words. Customer Service will reach out to you about the broken handle.

I want my B&W back. Not happy at all with this, and etrailer customer service was just as bad. The locking indicator was broke when it came out of the box. I contacted etrailer, they said they would contact the manufacturer, well 10 days later still haven't heard back. Also the locking mechanism has a bolt that goes through into the ouck system. That bolt has 1 side flat, to allow for posistive placement, well reese decided it would be fun to install this 90 degrees the wrong way, and not align the flat side of the bolt up with the notch in the handle. So now to to remove it, the threads will be trashed, and or the positive placement will slip some, if I just twist it to align. Horrible Q and A on Reese's part, and horrible customer service on etrailers part, oh and I am a reseller for etrailer, so I look bad as well.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

We are so very pleased with our 27K hitch! The order process was easy and delivery was very fast. We have used a Reese hitch for years now. We just upgraded our fifth wheel RV and it wieghs in at 16K our old hitch was an 18K hitch so we were within 2K of max weight. We felt that that was too close so we went big, it feels (pulls) better and I feel more safe knowing that we have plenty of hitch. Thank you for such great products.

Great hitch! Went together as per the instructions, pulls our 20,000 lbs 5th wheel great. Love the positive "Green" when the pin is in place as well as the wrap around jaw, real selling points for me.


Comments
Love this hitch over the last year! Pulled our 20,000 lbs 5th wheel over 11,000 miles in the last year without any issues what so ever.

I can't give a fair review as we've not installed it yet but after watching YouTube videos and reading reviews this is what we choose. I also called and asked questions before I ordered.

Now as far as etrailer goes, I'd give it 5 stars as we've ordered before in the past and never had any major issues. This 5th wheel arrived in great shape and even if didn't, it would be the shipper not etrailer.

Once we have it installed and have used it, I'll post an updated rating.

Thank you etrailer!




by:

Awesome hitch! I had to upgrade from an 18,000 lb hitch to a 27,000 for a larger toy hauler.
I really like the newer latching system on this hitch.
Ordering and shipping was painless.
Thanks Etrailer!




by:

I had always been a BIG B&W fan, but having heard about this hitch and it being cheaper, with a higher rating.... I decided to give it a try. Im really glad I did, as it takes up far less space in the bed than my old B&W did.

I did have an issue where one leg's welded, threaded insert was cock-eyed and the bolt didnt thread in.
etrailer, being the wonderful specialists they are, sent me a new leg kit ASAP.

My only issue thus far with the hitch is the rubber handle grip cracked and split, after sitting in my shop all winter in the cold. Not sure if thats normal, but it doesnt bother me enough that I remember it even 5 mins after using the hitch.

Hitch assembly was fairly straightforward, took less than an hour. Did have to purchase a torque wrench since the one I had only went to 150 ft lbs. Figured I'd purchase it so I could keep it in the truck to make any adjustments, if required, and check that bolts remain torqued to xxx ft lbs over time. Had to make two small adjustments when I put it in the puck system, which was easy to do. The red/green indicator had popped out of the head unit. I figured out that it just needed to be popped back in to position. Haven't towed with it yet so I can't comment on that at this time. Hitch is beefy and I doubt will not be a problem handling our 5th wheel. So far I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Love it, the handle grip cracked and etrailer replaced it super quickly!




by:
2022 Ford F-450 Super Duty

As other reviews have pointed out, Reese didn't run a chaser through the threads as they're all gummed up with the paint/powder coat. Real pain to clean them out as a tap that large isn't usually in most people's tool box. I had to adjust one of the castle nuts requiring that the cotter pin be removed which took about 30 mins of banging on it. I've never experienced a cotter pin that hard to remove. I would have preferred that they not install the pins at the factory. For these reasons they lose a star in this review. The hitch is robust and once installed there is no slack or chatter once engaged in the Ford Puck system. The actuation of the handle/jaw is smooth. The handle will fit under a Super Duty F-450 tonneau cover as long as you pivot the head to the left to lower it.




by:

I found the hitch ideal for our 5th wheel … easy to install in truck bed & easy to use. Especially like the safety features & simple indicator as to locked. What especially has stood out has been the responsive service & follow through by etrailer employees.




by:

I did not receive instructions with unit. Bolt holes in legs where center section attaches had too much paint in them, making it very difficult to get bolt threaded.

The hitch arrived extremely fast. I got it the next day. It went together real easy and slipped right in the truck. Also appreciated the option to adjust the height as my new truck was taller than the last one

Reese OEM Below deck fifth Wheel / Goose-neck pin hitch is the best you can get. I started with the signature Series 18K hitch in 2006 now upgraded to the 27K M5 hitch. and etrailer is the most reasonable consumer friendly way to shop trailer materials.




by:
2020 Ford F-450 Super Duty

it went together well and connects way better than my old hitch nice and solid no chucking while traveling, the red / green indicator is a cheap piece of plastic that doesn't work on mine reads green all the time, unhooks easy from trailer




by:

I have only installed the Reese hitch but it was easy to assemble and appears to be more than sturdy enough to do anything I need. All parts were included and well packaged. There was no shipping damage and the process was smooth.


Comments
After one year of use I couldn’t be happier. I full time RV and move a lot so the hitch is well used. It’s easy to use and I love the green indicator when the hitch is fully locked. I would recommend this to anyone requiring a sturdy, dependable hitch.

Great overall customer service experience. Recieved product in good condition and in good time. Assembly process was not too hard to figure out, it helps to be a mechanic with the proper tools and know how !!! Good looking 5th wheel with updated technology. Have had many complements about it. Thanks again.




by:

Very easy to assemble and attach.




by:

Great hitch easy to use. As others have reported the grip on the release lever breaks easily. However, I think that is a good thing as I was able to replace it with a much better and cooler looking grip.




by:

hitch works well, should have adjusted to highest level as when exiting a steep lot with a sharp turn i "kissed" the side rail of my truck with my 5th wheel. i'm not sure i like the new single jaw vs the old style though. aslo my lock indicator is already broken but just need to visually verify the lock.




by:

I love the hitch. It’s been great. The only issue was the handle grip cracking. I don’t pay attention to it. I will send photos.




by:

Very pleased with order. Arrived in a timely manner and was fairly easy to assemble by myself.




by:

First time for a Reese hitch. Assembly was very simple, only recommendation is for Reese to leave out the carter pins, and let the customer install them after adjustment. Haven’t got to tow with it yet but I am absolutely excited to use it. I feel it’s going to be an excellent product.




by:

Solid hitch has done a great job towing our 20,000 lb toy hauler for a about a year and 6,000+ miles. It has a pretty wide tolerance for getting hitched, and is smooth as butter both when towing and hooking/unhooking.

A few minor issues: the plastic handle cracked and fell apart after about 2 months, but it's not really necessary, it just looks nicer with it on. The red/green indicator thing always pops out of place and has to be reset - I don't even bother looking at it anymore, I just do a pull test every time I hook up. Also, the center / core section has a label on it that says 20k lbs, instead of 27k - I called Reese and they were very helpful in validating that it was just an incorrect label and was truly the correct 27k rated center box (they even had me measure the steel plate to make sure it was to spec).




by:

We have not been able to use the hitch yet but we are looking forward to it.
The Reese M5 27k hitch came in just a couple of days after ordering it. Having read some other reviews we knew what tools we would need. FYI you need a 200 lb torque wrench.
I guess it took us about an hour to get it put together and in our truck. It looks great!


Comments
This is still a great product after a year. We have not had one issue with the hitch. I recommend it highly!
