Review of Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP50082-58


Today, we're going to be reviewing part number RP50082. This is the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th-wheel trailer hitches. The custom brackets are going to be these right here on the side. These are actually going to mount beneath your truck bed, and they are going to provide the attachment points for the 5th-wheel rails. All the hardware that I have exposed, meaning all the hardware I have outside of the bag, that is going to be the hardware needed for the custom brackets. It's included, so everything that you need for a full, complete install is going to be included with this part number. All the hardware that I have in the bag is the hardware to get the base rails installed. The base rails are the 2 here on top.

These are designed to sit inside the truck bed, and they are going to allow installation of your 5th-wheel trailer hitch. Keep in mind that when installing the base rails, you do not want to install the mounting rails over plastic bedliners. What you will need to do is actually cut out the portion where the rails would sit of the plastic bedliner, that way we can have metal to metal contact. Now, mounting the rails is okay when doing it over a spray-in bedliner, so you don't have to worry about that. It's just only when using plastic bedliners that you need to trim that out of the way. This system is designed to fit 1999 to 2010 Ford SuperDuty F250 and F350 trucks and also 2008 to 2010 F450 trucks. The brackets here on the side, these are vehicle specific, and they are designed to mount to the existing holes in your vehicle's frame. Having the vehicle specific bracket feature is great because it's going to minimize the amount of drilling and measuring required for an install.

It's also going to cut your installation time in half when compared to universal bracket systems. The kit is going to include your custom brackets, base rails, all necessary hardware for both the custom brackets and the base rails as well as a set of detailed instructions to walk you through step by step for the installation. It is compatible with other hitches such as Curt, DrawTite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley, and Husky. This will not fit the Reese Elite Series or Signature Series or the Valley UBS hitches. It's made from a nice steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. The overall length of the base rails measuring from end to end is going to give us a measurement of right on 43", and each one is going to be identical. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP50082. This is the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th-wheel trailer hitches. .
