Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - RP50074-58 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and the Installation Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches. This is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty Trucks without the factory rail kit. On a custom-fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website use our fit guide. Put in your year model vehicle and it will show you if this will work for your application. These custom brackets right here is what will mount beneath your truck bed.

They provide the attachment points for these fifth wheel rails. These are vehicle specific brackets. They mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame. This will help minimize drilling and measuring. It cuts your installation time in half when compared with universal bracket systems and they also help by if you look on the bracket themselves, they've cut the letter for the side of the vehicle it goes on. You can see the D for driver's side.

So this would go on the driver's side like that. You can see on this bracket they've cut the letter P for passenger car, so just like that and this is where your rails would attach to. The base rails, these right here, these will sit in your truck bed. They allow installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch. They attach to these brackets that will be underneath the bed. This kit will include everything shown here, the custom brackets, the base rails, all the installation hardware to install it and a nice set of detailed instructions.

The compatible hitches that will work on these rails is Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Pro Series Valley and Husky. They will not fit the Reese Elite Series or the Valley UBS hitches. All the parts here you see are black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. That should do it for the review on the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and the Installation Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches.

The kit arrived within a few days-very happy about that. very easy to install. the directions were clear and pictures good. I went to the trouble of using a sharpie to mark the part numbers on everything before I started just to keep to all straight. I would note that on the 2017 F350 diesel the only problem bolt was on the driver side inline with the DEF tank. long skinny arms with flexible wrist is ideal (not what I have). I would also suggest taping the shims onto the outboard frame brackets to save yourself some frustrations. otherwise they are difficult to get and keep in place, especially on the driver side. the two nuts that go inside the frame tube come on/with a nice handle although a bit light on the wield. here again save yourself and tape the shims on before you try to insert two things into that hole, align and fasten the bolt-by yourself. I used an extension with wobble head and socket to turn the bolt while holding the nut "assembly" in place. I did remove the rear wheels and fender well liner-a must. Lastly, great customer service on the phone. Pleasant and patient answering questions. Wayde C - Montana 356688

Very easy to install. Measure twice, drill once. I used every piece of galvanic corrosion tape to protect the aluminum bed in the kit, probably could have used a little more. Even though I painted the edge of the holes after drilling, maybe some sort of insulator could be used there also. 543657

The hitch install kit is a good product. It took about six hours to install because my installer had never put this kit on the new Ford with the aluminum box before and he wanted it to be right. There was some issues with the fit on the frame. Little things like welds not ground down and getting it to fit tight to the frame of the truck. He was able to fix all of the issues with out any problems. Just a little longer installation time is needed to insure a proper fit than we expected. Overall, a good product. I would buy this hitch installation kit again, and I do recommend it. 480261

Very happy how soon the product I ordered was at my door step. 3 days after I ordered it. Put the base to my 5th wheel on my 2017 250 diesel sd took me around 5 hrs, would have been faster with 2 people. The base fit my husky 16k prefect when I done torquing all the bolts. Going to use this hitch to pull my 29.5 Durango EZ 1500. 550285

Great rail kit. Fairly simple install. The instructions are easy to follow. I did not have to remove spare or rear wheels to install. Only had to have helper for the two bolts in the third row. Hint, tape the u spacers to the long handle nut that goes inside the bed cross member. I did install rails in my previous truck (seventeen years ago) so I kind of knew what to expect. Frame brackets are a lot better now. 380705

Would give this item 5 stars except the spacer blocks are extremely difficult to use in certain spots. If the brackets had a way to hold the block it would make the installation much easier and besides the spacer blocks it is easy to install and works great. 638778

The product has served we well. We have travelled 14 states and about 15,000 miles pulling out fifth wheel rv with this rail system and no failures. I would say the kit is idiot proof but I was proven wrong. I had to pay a mobile mechanic to install it since I was so busy getting a house ready to sell and he did a few things wrong. He used the wrong bolts in the wrong holes and overtightened and probably didn't use all the spacers correctly since he bent the ribs in the bed of my brand new truck. There wasn't much I could do about it after it was done. It was very hard to find someone willing to even do the install. After all of that, it has still performed flawlessly. 470723

Took a little time to receive this, due to supplier or just the new model of the truck. ( it did take a couple of months for the bed-bolt socket to become available before I could get the bed liner). Could not find a video for this product installed but the instructions were great and the install went smooth. I did remove the spare and rear wheels. No problems with wires or hoses and the only nut that was close to being hard to get to was driver side front and it was not bad. This was my first install of this type product and my hitch fits better than my previous truck that I had paid to install. Hooked up to my 30' camper, took for a test drive and I'm back in the camping business. Other than the wait, I can't imagine a better deal. 335454

Your Ram truck actually has factory installed mounting points in the truck frame for the bolts included in the bracket kit to attach. No nuts were included because they are not needed.

Review from a similar Reese Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


I agree with the other reviews, allow yourself extra time and patience when installing this kit. It fit perfectly without drilling any holes in my new truck frame. Some of the bolts are near impossible to catch. It took me about 3-4 hours to install. Find someone to help who has skinny arms and long fingers....anyone who has installed this will agree. I am glad I used this instead of the universal "L" brackets, it was well worth the effort. 17953

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit for 2017 Ford F-350
  • We do have a large selection of 5th wheel trailer hitches and rail kits available that are confirmed to fit your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory rail kit. However, we do not have any systems available that will provide you with the aftermarket puck system that you are looking for. The only underbed 5th wheel hitch setups that will fit your truck are the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch, parts # BWRVK3400-5W and BWGNRK1117-5W, that you mentioned and the Demco Hijacker Autoslide, parts #...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed for Pro Series Hitch
  • I'd recommend going with a custom install fifth wheel rail kit as it will minimize drilling and install time on your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed. For that the Reese kit part # RP50074-58 would be a great option confirmed as a fit. Reese is made by the same company as Pro Series so these two would work well together.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 with No Frame Drilling
  • I have a fifth wheel rail kit solution for your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed, but at this time there are no fits from Husky (as of Nov. 1 2016). Instead we have the Reese rail kit part # RP50074-58 which is custom fit for your truck and does not require any drilling into the truck frame. It comes with rails that you would need to use too since we don't recommend mixing rail and bracket manufacturers. This rail kit is compatible with Husky fifth wheel rails.

  • We have fifth wheel bracket kits that fit your 2019 Ford F-250 like the part # RP50074 which would work if you had a set of Reese rails but the manufacturers can't mix between rails and brackets. For the rail and bracket kit this is from it's part # RP50074-58 which includes the rails and the brackets. If instead you have a set of Curt fifth wheel rails you'd need the part # C16428 for just the brackets. For the rails and the brackets this comes from kit part # C16428-204. I attached...

  • You'd want to go with a set of custom install Reese fifth wheel rails/brackets for your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory rail kit. The part # RP56017-53 is an outboard kit which means it the brackets mount to the outside of the frame rails making it a bit easier. Downside is a slightly bigger rail and higher price. The inboard kit part # RP50074-58 is your other option. You'd get a lower price and smaller rails but a more involved install. Since you have tapered nose trailer...

If you wanted this style of rail in a 2019 Ford F-250 without the factory rail kit you'd have to get the rail kit from a Ford dealer and have them install it.

A slider hitch will give you the clearance you need for making sharp turns. Between the two I suggest the Curt hitch since it offers more slider travel.

And when you compare the Reese # RP50074-58 and the Curt # C16428-204 they even install in the same location. They're custom kits so they use existing holes in your truck's frame. So you don't have to drill into the frame. With that being said, there is a second Reese kit, part # RP56017-53. This kit is an outboard install which means the brackets install on the outside of the frame rails....

Probably not that noticeable and certainly not something that's been reported.

  • Both the Reese fifth wheel rail install kits are a fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed without the factory rail kit. The difference is that the part # RP56017-53 costs a little more, installs much easier since the frame brackets mount to the outside of the frame, but also gives you a larger rail in the bed of your truck. The part # RP50074-58 on the other hand costs less, gives you a smaller rail in the bed of your truck, but will be a bit harder to install since the brackets mount...

  • Distance of Fifth Wheel Install Location on a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Reese Quick Install Bracket, part # RP56017-53 installs its rear bar at 29-1/8 inches away from the rear of the bed, compared to the rear bar being installed at 29-1/2 inches for part # RP50074-58. You likely won't have much difference in the hitch position between these two kits. Keep in mind that this distance is measured from the rear of the truck bed. I've included and labeled images from their instruction manuals so you can get an idea of how the rest of the system installs.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Brackets for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The 5th wheel brackets I recommend for your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty are the Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets # RP50074 that also are available in the full kit # RP50074-58. These will not require extra drilling into your frame for installation. If you want the universal fit brackets you can use the Universal kit # RP30035 or just brackets # RP30439. If you use the brackets only with either kit, you will still want to use new hardware for the rails # RP58430.

For both kits, you'll end up drilling into the bed of the truck only, however both kits use existing points in the frame to install.

  • How To Use a RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2019 Ford F-250
  • In order to use the RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch on your 2019 Ford F-250, I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # RP50074-58 if your truck DID NOT come with the factory puck system in the bed or the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP30156 if your truck DID come with the factory puck system in the bed. The Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails will give you the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Installation Kit for 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The best sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 2019 Ford F-250 is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550035 because it will automatically slide to give you turning clearance required so you don't need to get in and out of your truck to adjust between two locked positions to maneuver around gas pumps and make tighter turns at your campsite. This is especially nice on those rainy days to keep from jumping in and out of your cab a few times to make the adjustments. If you prefer a manual slider,...

  • Brackets Only for Reese 5th Wheel Installation Kit # RP50074-58
  • Yes, you can get the brackets and hardware from kit # RP50074-58 by themselves. Use part # RP50074. But you will also need hardware # RP58504 to attach the rails to the brackets. The hardware is meant for one-time use only so the old hardware, if you still have it, should not be reused. The PR50074 instructions also call for an 11th bolt which you can add using # HT32059.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails For 2017 Ford F-350
  • For 5th wheel rails on your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50074-58 which is a confirmed fit bracket and rail kit for your truck. These are the 43 inch long rails, so you don't need the longer rails based on your truck. We don't have just the brackets available for this model year yet outside of the kit. If you want the longer rails, you can get the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and...

  • Do Wheel Well Liners Need to Remove to Install Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit # RP50074-58
  • It's actually not required to remove the wheel liners to install the Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50074-58. I verified this with Reese and also if you check out the install video I attached for this kit in a similar 2018 Ford F-250 you can see our installer able to install the kit without having to first remove the wheel liners.

  • Comparing Universal vs Custom 5th Wheel Install Kits for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The easiest 5th wheel rail installation comes with a custom-fit kit that is made for your specific vehicle. These cost more and take less time to install because they are vehicle-specific and use existing holes in the truck's frame. Less drilling is required and this is where the time savings comes from. For your 2017 F-250 long bed without the factory rail kit you can use Quick-Install Custom Base Rail kit # RP50074-58. For a 7-way wiring harness for the truck bed use # 50-97-410-010.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 Without Factory Puck System
  • If your existing 5th wheel hitch was designed to fit into the factory puck system like the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3300 does then there would not be a way to reuse this hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory puck system Instead, I recommend selling your B&W Companion to recoup some of the money and then using the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3255 if you have the 8' bed or the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # BWRVK3270...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 without Factory Rail Kit
  • You can install the Andersen Ultimate Connection part # AM3200 in the bed of your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed without the factory rail kit. All you need is a set of fifth wheel rails in your truck bed. For that you would want the Reese rail kit part # RP50074-58. A custom install kit will install in less time than a universal kit and will minimize drilling. This is the rail kit the Ultimate is designed to work with as well.

  • Recommended Sliding Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty With Short Bed
  • I wouldn't consider it a screw-up at all! We can get you a high-quality new sliding hitch for your 2017 Ford F-250 with a short bed. The only thing you didn't say was if it had the factory rail kit or not so I'll go over options for both. If your truck does not have the factory rail kit (the puck system) then I recommend the Reese Titan 20 # RP30083, which has a 20,000 lb capacity, a forged self-latching jaw for optimal contact with your king pin, a 9" funnel and 4-way pivoting head...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed for Reese Slider Hitch
  • For your 2017 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4 foot bed the rail kit I would recommend is the Reese custom install kit part # RP50074-58. The custom install kits are the way to go since they minimize drilling and install time when compared to a universal kit. This kit is also the same style of rail kit that your Reese Kwik Slider hitch is designed to fit.

  • How Long to Install the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails on a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP50066-58 are designed for GM vehicle and will not fit your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty. For a 5th wheel installation kit that will fit your truck I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails (Inboard) part # RP50074-58 or the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails (Outboard) part # RP56017-53. Inboard installation kits provide a connection point for the base rails and frame...

  • Underbed 5th Wheel Rail Mounting Systems for a 2017 Ford F-350 4WD With an 8 Foot Bed
  • Yes, we do have some underbed mounting systems for your 2017 Ford F-350, but unfortunately there are no Reese 5th wheel hitch options rated for 26K. The only Reese hitch that fit with their Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30126 was the Reese Elite 18K # RP30142. Neither of which are a fit for your F-350. If you were wanting to stick with the below bed rails we have an option from B&W which is their Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1117-5W along with the Companion # BWRVK3500-5W...

  • Does Reese 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit RP50074-58 for 2018 Ford F-250 Include Galvanic Isolators
  • The Reese custom-fit 5th wheel base rail installation kit # RP50074-58, which is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty with aluminum body, includes plastic galvanic isolators to prevent galvanic interaction between the aluminum body and the steel base rails/hardware. These isolators do not show in the detail photo of all the kit's parts but my Reese contact confirmed they are indeed included in this kit.
