Review of Demco RV Fifth Wheel Installation Kit DM8551009


Today, we're going to take a look at the Underbed Rail and Installation Kit for Demco Hijacker UMS 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches. Now, this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty trucks without the factory rail kit. It will also work on both the two-wheel and four-wheel drive models, and the short bed and long bed models. Now, in any 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 vehicle. It'll show you if this will work for your application.

Now, this complete Installation Kit is designed for use with the Demco Hijacker UMS 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches. These underbed rails allow for complete access to your truck bed when the hitch is removed from the bed. These rails, they're not exposed. They're underneath the bed. All you'll have is the four mounting holes here, and it'll sit flush with the truck bed. This is a vehicle specific design.

It does reduce installation time, requires less drilling than universal systems. The brackets here on the side are no drill frame brackets which will bolt onto the outside of your truck's frame rails. Then these crossmembers sit along the top of the frame rails underneath the bed. All these parts are a sturdy black powder coated steel to help resist corrosion. Comes with everything shown here, the rails, the brackets which we've put together just to show you how they would look, all the installation hardware is included, nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything. What they even included was this roll of vinyl tape to install on top of these base rails.

The reason they do that on the Ford's now have the aluminum bed, this will prevent galvanic corrosion between that aluminum truck bed and the steel base rails. It'll also include four bed hole plugs that will be used to cover the openings in the truck bed when your hitch is not installed in the bed. These parts are all made in the USA. That should do it for the review on the Underbed Rail and Installation Kit for Demco Hijacker UMS 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches.
