48" Long base rails provide the attachment points for mounting your fifth-wheel trailer hitch in your truck bed. Designed for use with Reese custom-fit outboard brackets (sold separately).

by:

After drilling 3 pilot holes and 1 drilled to 9/16 to fit my rails I found out all rails are not the same size. The instructions don’t have the rail dimensions, that would have help a lot. After getting the correct rails I set the rails to the 27 11/16” drilled a pilot hole and it was not in the right spot. I had to get under the truck and get a measurement from back of the bed to center of the bracket hole to get it in the right spot. The 27 11/16” was closer to 28” not happy with the dimensions matter of fact I’m pissed because I have extra holes in my 2020 Ram truck bed. As for the actual parts they seem to be well made.




by:

The 48 in rails are actually deefer than the 43-inch rails that I've used previously they are American-made so I presume the steel is a better quality than Chinese stuff the only thing I would critique about is the horizontal holes for the pins to fit through could be a bit smaller so the hitch has less wiggle and rattle potential. I've toad trailers professionally before from the RV factories to the RV dealerships and the generic rails seem to work well for me even Towing the heavier triple axle beasts I even have a gooseneck ball adapter plate that I have used on the rails before and they also work perfectly I highly recommend this product and e trailer as their customer service is excellent




by:

I recently purchased a new 2019 Ford F 150 Super crew pickup and needed to have a fifth wheel hitch installed to pull my 19' Scamp camper. With the newer aluminum bed of the pickup I was concerned with safety issues just bolting my rails to the bed and ordered the Reese 65034 Custom Quick Install Mounting Kit. I ordered it on Thursday just before lunch and it was delivered at noon on Monday fast service!
Opened the box and was very happy with the quality. I read the directions and realized that I needed the longer rails so I ordered them on Monday at lunch time and they arrive today Wednesday before 1:00pm simply amazing. The crazy thing is we live 37 miles south of the Canadian border in northern Minnesota. Having the install done on Monday and I can't imagine anything going wrong. Thank You so much!

  • Outboard Base Rails for a 2015 Ford F-150
    It sounds like you need outboard base rails which means the bolts that attach the rails to the frame brackets are located outside the frame rail which makes for an easier install. If this is the case then you will want to use the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153.

  • Availability of 48 Inch Long 5th Wheel Base Rails
    We do have the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails - Extended Length # RP30153, which measure 48 inches long. These particular rails are designed for use with Reese custom-fit outboard brackets. If you can tell me the year, make, and model of your truck, I will be happy to recommend the correct mounting bracket kit for installation. I have also attached a short video demonstration on these rails that you can take a look at.

  • Base Rails for Reese Custom Outboard Brackets RP56001 on 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    The correct base rails for your Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets # RP56001 are the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153. These are 48" base rails so they are close to the 50" length you mentioned and are going to work well for you.

  • Custom Brackets and Fifth Wheel Rails For 2019 Ram 1500 New Body Style
    If the brackets that you have purchased are not lining up on the frame of the Ram, they may not be the correct brackets or they are the correct brackets for the Ram's frame and do not fit the rails that you are re-using. If you want a kit that is guaranteed to fit the 2019 Ram 1500 New Body Style, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets part # RP56018 for the 2019 Ram 1500. These Custom Brackets only fit with the 48" base rail part # RP30153. Please keep in mind these rails...

  • Taller Fifth Wheel Rail Availability
    The Reese Outboard rails part # RP30153 are a bit taller at 1-7/8 inches. These are called outboard rails because they install on the outboard side of the truck frame rails instead on the inboard side like most. This makes them easier to install.

  • What Fifth Wheel Hitches Fit Reese Rail Kit part # RP30153
    The Reese Fifth Wheel Rails part # RP30153 that you have are industry standard rails that will fit quite a few hitches on the market. They are compatible with Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley 5th-wheel hitches. A very popular option I really like is the Reese Titan hitch # RP30047 as it has a cushioned head and a jaw system that wraps around the king pin for a secure connection.

  • Which Base Rails Can I Use on a 2013 Ram 2500 To Mount a 5th Wheel Hitch to Existing Frame Brackets
    If you've already got the brackets in place then you can use the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt - Extended Length # RP30153, which comes with the mounting hardware included. This is based off the assumption that you've got outboard brackets (mounting to the outside of the truck frame) since you know they're there. If you've got standard mounting brackets then you can use the Reese Universal Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt #...

  • Correct Install Kit For a Reese 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
    In order to install the Reese R20 5th Wheel Hitch 30867 on your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic you will need to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit part # RP50142-58. This is a custom fit kit that does not require any drilling into the truck frame. There would be no way to attach the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153 as they do not offer brackets for these that will fit your truck.

    Yes, the Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails part # RP30153 will fit a 2018 Ram 2500 Mega Cab with RamBox and Factory Air Ride Suspension. I called Reese to confirm this for you. Please note, you will need special brackets to use the outboards rails as well so if you don't already have these it will be best to just go with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # RP56009-53.

  • Row 3 Hole Enlargement for Installing the Reese Rail Kit part # RP56009-53
    Both the rail kit # RP56009-53 and part # RP30153 that you referenced are considered industry standard rails so yes, a Reese 16k slider hitch like what you have would work well with them. Yes, you do need to use the bushing after you enlarge the 1-1/4 inch hole in row 3. The bush provides support for the bolt that runs through so that it doesn't just damage the bed of your truck when torqued. The bed is what gets enlarged to 1-1/4 inches per the instructions. You would want to drill from...

  • Truck Bed 5th Wheel Mounting Brackets for 2014 Ram 2500
    The Reese # RP56009 is a frame bracket kit, which contains the frame brackets and the hardware to mount them to the frame. Since these brackets connect to the bed rails on the OUTBOARD side of the frame and not above it, standard length bed rails like those included with the # RP30035 universal install kit.

    The Reese universal 5th wheel installation kit, brackets and hardware only, # RP30439, does fit the 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 long bed. But, if you have the longer Reese rails like the ones in kit # RP56001-53 (the rails are # RP30153) then you cannot reuse them with the universal brackets. When installing the universal kit the distance from the rear edge of the bed forward to the back edge of the rear rail will be 29-3/4 inches.
