Video Transcript for Review of Reese Quick Install Custom Bracket Kit For 5th Wheel Hitch - RP50040

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer dot com. And today we're gonna take a brief look at this Reese quick install custom bracket kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches. Now, this is a custom fit kit that is designed to fit the 2002 to 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 six and a half foot bad pickup. The 2006 to 2008 Dodge Ram 1500, six and a half foot bed pickup excluding the mega cab. And then finally the 2002 to 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 eight foot bed pickup.

To confirm if this kit will work for your truck take advantage of our vehicle fit guide here at etrailer dot com and our fit guide will let you know if this kit will work for you or if we have something comparable that will work for you. So, these custom brackets are going to mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for fifth wheel base rails. Those base rails are sold separately but you can find them here at etrailer dot com by using the item number that you see on your screen. Just take that item number and put it in the search field of our website. And it'll take you to those base rails, those base rails sit in your truck bed, and they allow the installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch.

And I do have an example of one of those base rails just to show you what they look like. So again, we do have those available here on our website by using that item number that I showed you previously and these vehicle's specific brackets are going to mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame. Minimizing drilling and measuring and cutting the installation time in half when compared to universal bracket systems. The black powder coat finish is going to help resist corrosion. And this kit includes everything that you see here on the table before me, of course you're gonna get your custom brackets.

You're gonna get the hardware. Also, includes special hardware to attach those above bed rails to the brackets and also a great set of instructions here to guide you through the installation process. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy.

Thank you for joining me..

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


Five hours to install; which included a half hour searching for the key to the padlock on my spare. E-Trailer linked me to an installation video which really helped. I took my time and measured three times before I drilled the bed. Installation is a lot easier with someone to hold the bolts from the top. I fabricated mounting brackets on my last truck, but these were worth the money and I didn't have to drill the frame! Good design and straight-forward installation. My only issue was the video didn't show one bolt install that secured the driver's side rear bracket to the bottom of the frame. I was going off the video only and wasn't using the written instructions. Make sure you go step by step using both. Also, some parts are clearly for a different application so there will be a few parts left over. My experience with e-trailer was awesome.

Very happy how soon the product I ordered was at my door step. 3 days after I ordered it. Put the base to my 5th wheel on my 2017 250 diesel sd took me around 5 hrs, would have been faster with 2 people. The base fit my husky 16k prefect when I done torquing all the bolts. Going to use this hitch to pull my 29.5 Durango EZ 1500.

They fit truck just like they were supposed too. Couple hr install with having to remove spare tire and heat shields to get access to bolt locations. Been supporting fifth wheel through thousands of miles. Thanks for helping me find right product for my truck!

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


Can’t use the carriage bolts that you supplied, except in the middle of the rail. There’s no room to put a socket on the nut between the beam and bed, there’s just enough room to use an open end wrench and torque the bolts from the bed side, Which means you have to buy 8 bolts. A video stated the same thing, you believe it’s a one man’s job, it’s not. That’s why you supplied the carriage bolts.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


Hi, George. Thanks for your email. I bought the frame rails to marry up with my Reese hitch and I wasn't disappointed. It installed on my 2003 f250 perfectly and hooked up to the 5th wheel without a problem.

We ordered a bracket kit for our new 2017 F350. It was needed to install our Reese fifth wheel. which we use to pull our RV. Product was on back order by manufacturer, however Delisa at Etrailer diligently kept us very informed with updates & shipping status. My husband & son were able to install in a couple of hours. Looks great, outstanding craftsmanship & over exceeded our expectations! We would highly recommend!!!!!

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


The kit arrived within a few days-very happy about that. very easy to install. the directions were clear and pictures good. I went to the trouble of using a sharpie to mark the part numbers on everything before I started just to keep to all straight.

I would note that on the 2017 F350 diesel the only problem bolt was on the driver side inline with the DEF tank. long skinny arms with flexible wrist is ideal (not what I have). I would also suggest taping the shims onto the outboard frame brackets to save yourself some frustrations. otherwise they are difficult to get and keep in place, especially on the driver side.

the two nuts that go inside the frame tube come on/with a nice handle although a bit light on the wield. here again save yourself and tape the shims on before you try to insert two things into that hole, align and fasten the bolt-by yourself. I used an extension with wobble head and socket to turn the bolt while holding the nut "assembly" in place.

I did remove the rear wheels and fender well liner-a must.

Lastly, great customer service on the phone. Pleasant and patient answering questions.

Very easy to install. Measure twice, drill once. I used every piece of galvanic corrosion tape to protect the aluminum bed in the kit, probably could have used a little more. Even though I painted the edge of the holes after drilling, maybe some sort of insulator could be used there also.

Installing 2017 5th wheel brackets and rails . Thankyou for your service in sending me the right parts for my F250 . Took about 4 hrs to install and all holes were perfect in the side brackets . Just had to drill for the rail. I’d recommend your service...

I installed the hitch and brackets myself and am very satisfied with the bracket kit. I’ve towed my fifth wheel about 6 k during the past year and am very satisfied. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.


Comments
I have towed my fifth wheel about 15000 miles in total since installing the rail and bracket kits. No problems to this point and don’t see any reason to think I’ll have any problems in the future. I have nothing but praise for ETrailer. The people are re knowledgeable and give good insight on the installation process. Many thanks

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


The brackets arrived in a timely manner. etrailer had a short video which assured potential customers that the brackets would bolt on to my year Toyota but because I have an 8-ft bed and was reusing my existing hitch and rails, I still needed assurance the brackets would work for me. I corresponded by e-mail with etrailer on this question. The etrailer representative I was in contact with requested additional information about my specific hitch and rails which I provided and etrailer confirmed the brackets would work for me. This all happened in a matter of hours. etrailer gave very prompt, accurate service. I attached the brackets, both front and back, and followed the instructions on where to drill through the bed for the rearward brackets and the drill holes in the bed were aligned perfectly with my old rails. The same held true for the front brackets...although I had not cinched them down as they are somewhat (1/2 inch perhaps) moveable. I installed both rails with the hitch in place and torqued the rails down. then torqued the front brackets down. Clearances due to the frame members prevent getting a torque wrench on the front bracket bolts so I just tightened them as much as possible. One person can install the brackets to the frame. It takes two persons to install and tighten the rail bolts. All in all, service was good and the product was good.


Comments
The fifth-wheel brackets have performed flawlessly since installed a year ago.
