Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Universal - RP30035-426 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for fifth-wheel trailer hitches on the Ford F-150 trucks. Now this part is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2004 to 2014 Ford F-150 trucks, all bed sizes, and 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 and model of vehicle, and it will show you if this will work for your application.Now these 10-bolt base rails are what will sit in your truck bed. They do provide the necessarily attachment points for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The semi-custom brackets right here is what will mount beneath your truck bed. They provide the attachment points for these fifth-wheel rails.

Now these mounting brackets are specifically designed to fit your Ford F-150. Now the base rails themselves, they are compatible with fifth-wheel hitches by Kirk Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley brands and most standard fifth-wheel hitches. They will not fit the Reese Elite Series or Valley UBS hitches.All these parts you can see are a sturdy steel construction. They have a nice black, powder coat finish to them to help resist corrosion. This part will include everything shown here all on the table.

The two 10-bolt base rails, the universal brackets, the semi-custom brackets, all the hardware needed for all those brackets, and a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything, but that should do it for the review on the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for fifth-wheel trailer hitches on the Ford F-150 trucks.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit for a 2005 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 Bed
    Out of the base rail kits that we have for your 2005 Ford F-150 I recommend going with the semi-custom install kit # RP30035-426 or the custom install kit # RP50081-58. Since they are fairly similar in price the custom option is the better way to go since it is easier to install but it will not fit with a Flareside or Stepside bed. As long as your Hijacker uses the industry standard mounting points it will fit your pickup. We recommend using base rails that match the manufacturer of the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit For 2005 Ford F-150 with Dimensions
    For your 2005 Ford F-150, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50081-58. This will give you the standard 43 inch rails with custom brackets so you don't need to drill into your truck frame. It will utilize pre-existing holes in the frame for a strong and secure fit. Another option is to use the # RP30035-426 which will also give you the brackets specific to your vehicle. This is better than the most economical and...

  • Difference Between Fifth Wheel Installation Kits For 2013 Ford F-150 With 8 Foot Truck Bed
    There are a couple differences between the installation kits you mentioned for your 2013 F-150. The # RP30035-426 kit is a semi-custom installation kit that requires drilling into the truck frame. This is a more labor intensive installation and it takes quite a while longer to install the base rails. Installation of the # RP50081-58 kit is much easier and requires much less drilling as it uses the holes inthe truck frame to install the brackets. The installation of the # RP56006-53...

  • Recommend Base Rails for a PullRite Model 2700 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2013 Ford F-150 Truck
    From what I found the PullRite SuperGlide 2700 is one of the models that fits industry standard above the bed rails. Semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-426 does come with industry standard rails so it will fit the hitch and your 2013 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 foot bed. You could also use the Reese Quick-Install Base Rails, # RP50081-58, on your 2013 Ford F-150. The Quick-Install rails will reduce installation time due to the reduced amount of frame drilling that is required during installation.

  • Parts To Install Husky EZ Roller 5th Wheel Hitch in 2011 Ford F-150 Super Cab 5.6 Short Bed
    We do have an installation kit that will work with your Husky EZ roller and your 2011 Ford F-150 Super Cab w/ 5.6 bed. You will need the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, RP30035-426. In addition to the installation kit, it is required to use a Sidewinder King Pin, so that you have clearance to make sharp turns since you have a 5-1/2 foot bed. A Sidewinder moves the pivot point of the trailer connection rearward and will provide an additional 22 inches of clearance. In order to choose...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Installation Kit For 2010 Ford F-150 With 6-1/2 Ft Bed
    Both of the fifth wheel installation kits you referenced, part # C16300-204 and part # RP30035-426 are semi-custom installation kits and require drilling into the frame on your 2010 F-150. These are very similar in installation and both will work with fifth wheel hitches that fit industry-standard above bed rails. In my opinion I would go for the custom installation kit. These cut the installation time in half and use holes that exist in the frame and require no drilling. When installing...

  • Does a Short Bed Truck Need a Slider if the Trailer has Max Turn Technology
    From the research I did it looks like trailers that have the Max Turn Technology don't require that the truck towing them have a slider hitch if they are a short bed. So you could use a stationary hitch then. For a hitch I would recommend the Reese 20k Hitch part # RP30081 that you referenced. This is a great hitch at a great price. Check out the review video for more info. For a rail kit I would recommend the semi-custom install kit # RP30035-426.

  • Will An RBW X-16 Fifth Wheel HItch Fit Into a Reese Install Kit like Part RP50081-58
    It may be compatible. Both the Custom Install Kit RP50081-58 and the Semi-Custom Kit part # RP30035-426 are compatible most RBW hitches, but some will not fit properly. If you write back with model of RBW hitch you have, I can verify whether that particular hitch is compatible.

  • Where are the 5th Wheel Install Kit Rails Placed in a 2010 Ford F-150 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    It depends on what 5th wheel installation kit you are using on your 2010 Ford F-150. If you are using kit # RP30035-426 then measure from the rear edge of the bed forward 29-5/16 inches. This is where the back edge of the rear rail will be. Once it is in place you will use the hitch to position the front rail. If you are using installation kit # RP56006-53 then the measurement is 26-3/16 from the rear edge of the truck bed. If you are using Reese installation kit # RP50081-58, Curt installation...

  • Fifth Wheel Install Kit for 2013 Ford F150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed Length
    The Reese Semi-Custom Install Kit you referenced, part # RP30035-426 is indeed a compatible fit for your 2013 Ford F150 Super Crew. The install kit uses industry-standard fifth wheel bed rails that are compatible with your Husky hitch. For a custom install/bracket kit that uses existing holes in the truck's frame which would be considerably easier to install, use # RP50081-58. In order to gain the proper clearance between the rear of the truck cab and the front of the fifth wheel, a Sidewinder...

  • Can Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 ft Bed Tow Trailer with Locked Out Sidewinder Pin Box
    Since your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed you would not be able to lock out your Sidewinder and use it like a standard pin box as the nose of the trailer would hit the cab of the truck around corners. You really need the additional turning clearance that the Sidewinder provides. It's possible you are using the wrong wedge with your current hitch and that's why it's hard to connect to your trailer. If you let me know what hitch you have I can verify for you the correct wedge. The Superglide...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot Bed
    The Husky fifth wheel hitch CP 07054 you referenced is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails. For a rail kit that is custom fit for your 2013 Ford F-150 which would work well you'd want the Reese kit part # RP50081-58. This is a custom install kit which means that it will install in less time and minimize drilling over a universal kit like you referenced. Since your truck bed is less than 6 feet though you'll need to use a Sidewinder pin box installed on your trailer to give...

  • Fifth Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit Recommendations For 2012 Ford F-150 With 6-1/2 Ft Bed
    If your RBW Lil Rocker Fifth Wheel can fit in standard base rails, I recommend the Custom Installation Kit, part # RP50081-58. This kit cuts installation time in half when compared with universal kits. If you prefer a less expensive installation kit with rails you can check out part # RP30035-426. I have attached links to installation videos for these kits you can check out.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Kit Options for 2012 Ford F-150 Crew Cab with 5-1/2-foot Bed
    There are three basic types of 5th wheel base rail installation kits: universal kits like the Reese # RP30035 that you referenced; semi-custom kits such as Reese # RP30035-426 that cost a bit more but reduce drilling and install time; and custom under-bed-bracket installation kits that require the least drilling and shortest time for installation, such as Reese kit # RP50081-58. I have linked an installation video for each of these. Any of these base rail kits will allow for installation...

If you also need the four black under-bed brackets then instead you can use kit # RP30439. If you need a pin kit to secure your hitch to your base rails you can use # 6014.

  • Position of 5th Wheel Rails in a 2011 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed Using Semi-Custom Kit RP30035-426
    If you are using semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-426 on your 2011 Ford F-150 then measure from the rear edge of the bed (not the tailgate) forward 29-5/16 inches. This is where the back edge of the rear rail will be. With the rear rail in position you would then use the hitch in the rear rail to locate the position of the front rail. I have included links to the 2 sets of instructions for this kit for you.

    Because of where the brackets for most air bag kits install on your 2005 Ford F-150 King Ranch Super Crew you will need to use a semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-426. This kit has 4 brackets, 2 for each side, that take up less space than 2 brackets in custom installation kits. Take a look at the picture I have provided that shows the bracket locations and compare them to the air bag brackets on your truck to determine fit.

  • Converting Reese 16K fifth Wheel Hitch To Slider For 2014 Ford F-150 With 6-1/2 Ft Bed
    You can convert the Reese fifth wheel hitch you have to a sliding fifth wheel and still use the standard base rails you have. You will need the Reese Fifth Wheel Slider w/ Rollers for 15K, 16K and 20K Head, part # RP30048 or # RP50024. You will also need an installation kit, part # RP58426 if you have the above bed base rails for the fifth wheel. If you need the base rails as well you can use part # RP30035-426 on yoru F-150.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2011 Ford F-150 Supercrew w/5-1/2 Foot Bed and Sidewinder for Prowler
    First, before doing anything else, you will need to look at the pin box on the trailer. There should be a plate or sticker somewhere on the pin box that lists that manufacturer and model number of the pin box. That is the information I will need to determine if there is a Sidewinder that will fit. If you cannot find that information then there are some measurements you will need to take. I have included a couple of links. One is to our FAQ on Sidewinders and after you get the make and...

  • Fit of Firestone Ride Rite # F2542 Air Helper Springs and 5th Wheel Hitch on 2014 Ford F150
    According to Firestone, the only fifth wheel set up they've tested on the 2014 Ford F150 for fit with the # F2542 is the B&W Companion, which consists of the # BWGNRK1104 install kit and the # BWRVK3400 sliding hitch. My Firestone rep tells me that there's a good chance that a Universal Install Kit like the Reese # RP30035-426 would fit, but since they haven't tested it, we can't guarantee fit.

In terms of Reese rail products, there are 2 possible options for brackets and rails. First is the semi-custom install kit # RP30035-426. This includes the 4 bolt rails and special brackets compatible with them. This kit does require some drilling to mount the brackets.
