5th Wheel Frame Brackets for a 2012 Ford F-250


what is the measurements of the mounting holes on the reese rp30035 width. im looking to but the curt custom mount #16424 but reuse the rails in my old truck, I want to remove the rails from a 2000 f20 and put them in a 2012 f250. it looks like the rails that were put in are universal but I cant be sure sense an rv shop installed them in to the 2000, any help would be great. thanks


Helpful Expert Reply:

If you already have the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford part # C16424 on your 2012 Ford F-250 then you will want to use these with the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails part # C16104, not the Reese Universal Base Rails part # RP58058 or part # RP30035 because you cannot mix and match base rails with frame brackets from different manufactures. If you have the Reese Universal Base Rails in your only 2000 Ford F-250 then you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit part # RP50026 to install them on your new 2012 Ford F-250.

If you don't know what base rails you have in your old truck it would be best to just obtain the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit part # RP50026-58 or the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit part # C16424-204. These will both work with ISR 5th wheel hitches from most brands like Curt, Reese, Husky Etc.

For reference, the Reese rails are 5-3/4" wide and the Curt rails are 5-5/8" wide.
