Review of Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP56017-53


Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard installation kit for the fifth wheel trailer hitches. 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. On a 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, and it'll show if this will work for your application.Now these installation brackets, right over here, will mount beneath your truck bed.

They provide attachment points for the fifth wheel rails. The base rails is what will sit in your truck bed, and they allow the installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. Now this kit is a fast, simple installation. It has the outboard design.The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended length rails. These above bed rails five inches longer than the standard universal fifth wheel rails, so they'll match up with the mounting points on these brackets, which will sit below the bed, and outside of your truck's frame.

This will help avoid under bed components, for easier access. It cuts down your installation time by more than half, compared with the universal kits.These custom brackets will also mount to existing holes in your truck frame, minimize any drilling and measuring. This is a thoroughly tested kit. It is compliant with the strict SAE, which is the Society of Automotive Engineer guidelines. The kit will include everything shown here on the table.

For this video, I've installed the install kit to the rails, just to show you what it looks like installed.The kit will include the custom brackets, the 10-bolt base rails, all the Grade-8 hardware, with instructions on how to install everything. It also includes these galvanic isolator strips, which will help prevent corrosion between the steel mounting rails, and your aluminum truck bed. These rails are compatible with B&W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches. They are a sturdy, black powder coated steel, which will help resist corrosion.A few specs on this, the base rails are going to be 48 inches long, by about 1 7/8 inches tall. That should do it, for the review on the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard installation kit for the fifth wheel trailer hitches..
