Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - RP56015-53 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Reese quick install custom outboard installation kit with the base rails for the fifth wheel trailer hitches. Now this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks.Now, the installation brackets right on the sides here, these will mount beneath your truck bed, and they provide the attachment points for these fifth wheel rails. The base rails is what will sit in your truck bed, and they allow for installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch.This is nice, fast, simple installation, using this outboard design. Now, just like your original custom mounting brackets, these brackets install using existing holes in your truck frame and helps minimize installation time.The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended length rails that they use. These above bed rails are five inches longer than standard universal fifth wheel rails, so they match up with mounting points on the brackets, which will sit below the bed but outside of your truck's frame. The result is a much simpler installation process because most under bed components can be easily avoided.

It will cut down installation time by more than half, compared with a lot of universal kits. So its nice because you're working on the outside of the frame rails, you'll have easier access with your tools, more room to work, makes the whole process a lot less of a pain.This kit is a thoroughly tested kit. It is compliant with strict SAE guidelines. The kit will include everything here on the table. I have mounted the base rails to the installation brackets just to give you an idea how this would look all put together.It includes the installation brackets, the ten bolt rails, the grade eight hardware, and a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything.This is compatible with B and W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premiere Series, Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley above bed trailer hitches.All these parts have a nice sturdy black powder coat finish on them to help resist corrosion.

They are steel construction. Few specs on this, the base rail dimensions, and again we mentioned these are outboard, so they're five inches longer. So, from one end to the other is right at forty-eight inches, and the total height on it, from the bottom to very top is going to be right at one and seven eighths inches tall on the rail.But that should do it on the Reese quick install custom outboard installation kit with base rails for fifth wheel trailer hitches.
