Recommended 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit For A 2018 Ford F-150


I need to verify fitment of a fifth wheel rail kit. my new wfifth wheel already has a side winder box extender. but i can not seem to find a rail kit for my truck.

For your 2018 Ford F-150 I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034-53. These ISR rails are a custom fit for your F-150 and are compatible with with B&W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches.

If you haven't already purchased a hitch I recommend the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928. This heavy-duty 5th-wheel hitch has a 1-piece, wraparound jaw and easy-to-see lock indicator for maximum safety and security. The fully articulating head with large landing area and kingpin target make hookup easy peasy.

Since you'll be using a Sidewinder pin box you'll need the corresponding wedge kit to prevent the king pin of the pin box from rotating in the jaws of the hitch. For the # RP30928 you'll need the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for 20,000-lb Reese ELITE, M-Series, or ProSeries Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP44FR.
