Custom brackets reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Hardware included. Base rails sold separately.


I am glad I bought this kit for my 2011 ford f250. It fit really well and went together much easier than the universal kit would have. In my opinion this is a must have when installing a fifth wheel rail kit. Definitely worth the money.

Jordon B.


Still holding up great. Never regretted the purchase yet!


The kit fit perfectly and all the parts where there. Mounting the 5th wheel bedrails from my 2005 to 2015 Ford was a concern but this kit made the install as easy as having purchased a whole assembly maodel specific.


Shawn K.
I recently acquired a pro-series
5th wheel hitch without installation hardware for my F250. I acquired etrailer part number RP50026 easy install bracket kit and RP58430 hardware kit. I received the kits promptly, kits were complete and the instructions were plain. Everything fit the way they were supposed to. I didn't have to move or remove anything on the truck to install the hitch. I would recommend etrailer to anyone for all trailer needs.


Overall not too hard to install. Drivers side inside front frame rail nut was the most time consuming as it is hard to get your hand between the frame rail and the fuel tank. But this kit makes the install time way shorter as you don’t have to drill holes.


Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. From the order to the tracking to the Quality of the product. Your tracking system is one of, if not the best I have seen. your web browsing kept me in the right product category for what I was looking for, It didn't take me to a hundred widgets I didn't need. The brand you sold me was 100 over 100 from quality to the the install, no surprises, no adjusting to fit, just bolt and go.


I installed these custom brackets in my truck today using the hardware included and also the replacement hardware kit I ordered for attaching my fifth wheel rails to the brackets. They fit perfectly in my 2016 Ford F350 King Ranch dually with the 8 foot box. I am once again pleased with for their customer service and fast shipping!
I had installed the same brackets 8 years ago in my previous F350, again with good results.

I will continue to use for my needs, and recommend to all my friends.


Didn't necessarily need these but worked great and made the hitch install very easy.





Very easy to use if you have any ability at all. Directions were easy to follow. Two of the hole did not line up perfectly with the rail hole but could be made to work . All in all a very easy to work with product. When you purchase this you need the hardware kit. Had everything that was needed except the wrenches and the drills. Went together in two hours not the four and a half the trailer dealer said it would take.

etrailer is the best they know their products fast delivery with everything I needed.


These bracket kit went into my F-250 with no problems. To install the brackets and the Reese 5th wheel rails took 4 hours, with the help of the wifes small hands to get one nut on.


The service from etrailer is so great I look at other places but come back to them ,they are very knowledgeable.
Yhak you for all


Your product worked great. The instructions that you sent was helpful
Thanks it is better than having to buy a new hitch.


Received the parts this afternoon and three hours later, my fifth wheel was hooked up. It took three hours doing the installation by myself.
I did have to drill two holes into the frame of my 2008. One on each side. Very happy with the product. Great fit!


Just what my husband needed and then the easy installation makes it great because he had an accident and can't grip hold of little screws and these screw together without holding both pieces... a very happy customer


2013 F250, 8ft bed, gasoline eng, easy to install, fast shipping and very well made. I'm an average mechanic and it took me about an hour to install these and the rails.


Perfect fit. Easy installation.


Good craftsman ship. I have not installed it yet but definitely heavy duty.


I called and told them exactly which brackets I needed and I received brackets for the wrong make truck


Works great!!! Shipping was a little slow I ordered on a Thursday it was not shiped till Monday.

Bob L.

  • Which Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Fits 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
    For a Reese fifth wheel bracket kit that does fit your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 we have the part # C16418 but the kit you mentioned does not fit. Worth mentioning is that this is just the bracket kit and does not include the rails. If you need rails as well you'd need the part # C16418-204.

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit that Fits 2019 Ford F-350
    Reese has a custom fit bracket kit that fits your 2019 Ford F-350 with the part # RP50074 but the # RP50026 does not fit your truck.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Frame Brackets for a 2014 Ford F-250
    It's unlikely that the rails that are coming with the Pullrite hitch will work with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026. I'd recommend just getting the full deal with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026-58, which is going to include those brackets but also a set of base rails that are guaranteed to work.

  • Custom Fit Fifth Wheel Rail and Bracket Kits that Fit 2011 Ford F-350 Long Bed without Rail Kit
    Yes, we have custom fit Reese fifth wheel rail and bracket kits for your 2011 Ford F-350 long bed without the factory rail kit with the part # RP50026-58 for a kit that includes the same rails as the # RP30035 and also custom fit brackets or the part # RP50026 which is just the brackets without the rails. I attached an install kit for this rail kit on a similar Ford truck as yours.

  • Reese Custom Brackets for 2016 Ford F-250, 6-3/4 Foot Bed Compatible with 10-Bolt Above Bed Rails
    The custom brackets you want to use with your Reese Universal Base Rails # RP30035 for your 2016 Ford F-250 are the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50026. These brackets will work well with your above-bed rails that have the 10-bolt design. The Reese Custom Fit Brackets # RP50026 will not require any drilling to install on your F-250 with 6-3/4 foot bed, and they are designed to accommodate the Diesel Exhaust Fluid tank on your diesel truck. I have linked the installation...

  • Recommended Custom Bracket-Only Kit for Reese 5th Wheel Hitch Installation in 2016 F-250
    If you want just the custom-fit under-bed brackets to allow Reese 5th wheel base rail installation in your 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 6-3/4-foot bed, you can use Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50026 from Reese. If you also need a 5th wheel wiring harness in the truck bed you can use Curt part # C56000.

  • Does 2013 Ford F-150 5.5 ft Bed Require Sidewinder Pin Box to Make Tight Turns
    Trucks with 5-1/2 foot long beds just don't have the same turning clearance when towing a fifth wheel trailer as other bed lengths do so one great solution is to install a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer as it gives the clearance needed. Or if that's not an option we do have one slider hitch that has the required clearance with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550040. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out...

  • Rear 5th Wheel Base Rail Measurement for 2011 Ford F-150 XLT with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    For your 2011 Ford F-150 XLT, the # RP50026 is not a fit for your 5-1/2 foot bed. It is a fit for the 6-1/2 foot or the 8 foot bed. For the 5-1/2 foot bed you will need the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50081-58 or # RP50081 for just the brackets. With this kit the rear edge of the rear rail will be 28-11/16 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed.

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2003 Sierra 1500 with 6-1/2-Foot Bed Towing Cougar X-Lite 26RLS
    I still recommend a sliding type 5th wheel hitch for your 2003 GMC Sierra with 6-1/2-foot bed even though your 2009 Cougar 26RLS X-Lite has rounded corners on its overhang. Some trailers have a sharply tapered nose which can avoid the need for a slider to give you enough turning clearance, but your Cougar's profile still needs either a sliding hitch or a fixed hitch with a Sidewinder pivoting pin box to give you the clearance needed for 90-degree turns without risk of the trailer overhang...

  • 5th Wheel Install Kit Brackets Only for a 2015 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    No, bracket kit # RP50026 doesn't fit the F-150; it fits certain years of the F-250/350/450. For your 2015 F-150 you will need # RP50087. The hardware is included. I have linked a video showing an example installation.

  • 5th Wheel Frame Brackets for a 2012 Ford F-250
    If you already have the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford part # C16424 on your 2012 Ford F-250 then you will want to use these with the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails part # C16104, not the Reese Universal Base Rails part # RP58058 or part # RP30035 because you cannot mix and match base rails with frame brackets from different manufactures. If you have the Reese Universal Base Rails in your only 2000 Ford F-250 then you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit...

  • Brackets and Hardware Only to Mount Reese 5th Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    Fifth wheel brackets # RP56016 are specifically for the longer Reese rails, # RP30153, which are 48 inches long. If your rails are Reese and 48 inches long by 7-1/2 inches wide by 1-7/8 inches tall then # RP56016 is the correct bracket kit. If your rails are shorter than 48 inches then you will need bracket kit # RP50026 instead. Bracket kit # RP56016 comes with hardware to mount to the truck frame but not the hardware to attach the rails to the brackets. For that hardware you will need...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Base Rail & Bracket Kit For A 2022 GMC Sierra 2500
    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026 is design to fit 2011-2016 Ford trucks and is incompatible with your 2022 GMC Sierra 2500. The Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30153 are just the rails that would sit in your bed so they would be compatible with the # RP50026 brackets as well as many other bracket kits. These rails are the same as the # RP58058, but have an extended length. Reese currently does not...

    The Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026 are not the correct custom mount brackets for your 2003 GMC Sierra HD. The correct rail kit for your vehicle is the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50064-58.

  • Recommended Bracket Kit to Install Reese 5th Wheel and Rails on 2016 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Ft Bed
    To install your Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitch and Base Rails on your 2016 Ford F-250 diesel, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50026. This kit is custom fit for your vehicle to cut down on installation time and drilling. This will include the custom brackets and all the necessary hardware. I have included a video review of the product for you to check out. Also note that with your 6-3/4 foot bed, sliding 5th wheel hitches like the Curt 16K # C16521 are recommended...

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-250
    The correct bracket kit for your 2013 Ford F-250 would be a Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50073. The # RP56001 that you referenced is not confirmed to fit your vehicle and would not be recommended. If you need the hardware to attach your current rails to the # RP50026 you would want a Replacement hardware kit # RP58430. Since you have a short bed truck you are going to need to get a hitch with a slider so that you can make 90 degree turns. Check out the FAQ article I attached...

  • Brackets and Hardware Needed to Install Reese Trail Boss 15K 5th Wheel Hitch in 2013 Ford F250
    The Reese Trail Boss 5th wheel hitch you mentioned would work just fine in your 2013 F250. You'll need the Reese Quick-Install custom brackets, part # RP50026 as well as the 10-bolt rail replacement hardware kit, part # RP58430, both of which will provide you with all new install hardware. If you have any of the old mounting hardware, please don't reuse it, it's designed for a one time use only.

  • Are Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kits Weight Rated
    The great thing about fifth wheel rail kits and bracket kits is that they mostly aren't weight rated and what the manufacturers of the kits will say is that the kits will take on the same capacity as the hitch that is used in them. So if you wanted to use a 24k hitch with the Reese bracket kit part # RP50026 you certainly could.

    I will be happy to help. You already have most of the parts you will need to install the Reese slider hitch # RP30051 in your 2015 Ford F-250 long bed. You can reuse the rails but will need new under bed brackets and hardware unless you don't have the old rails. If you don't have the old rails you would need a whole kit. If you still have your rails then for the brackets I recommend # RP50026 which are the custom fit brackets which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your new...

  • Compatibility of Reese 5th Wheel Install Frame Brackets with Unknown Brand Bed Rails
    The bracket kit you'd need for your 2008 Ford F350 is # RP50082. The # RP50026 is for a 2011-2016 model, and wouldn't work on your truck. The # RP50082 bracket will be compatible with your rails as long as they're industry standard, and have the spacing shown in the provided photo. We recommend going with brackets and rails from the same manufacturer, so the weight capacity is known, and it's a known fact that the bracket and rail have been tested together.
