Video Transcript for Review of Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Outboard Mounting Brackets - RP56016

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Reese Quick-Install custom outboard brackets for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. Now this kit is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 to 2016 Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty trucks without the OEM prep package.And on a custom fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this'll work for your application.Now, these are custom outboard brackets, which will dramatically reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. These installation brackets will mount beneath your truck bed, and they provide the attachment points right here for your fifth-wheel rails.Now, these are just like the original custom mounting brackets. These brackets installed below the bed, and they do use existing holes in the truck frame, minimizing installation time and will help minimize drilling and measuring.

And it cuts down that installation time by more than half compared with universal bracket systems.The biggest difference with these, these are outboard brackets, and they're designed to install outside the vehicle's frame. So the result is a much simpler installation process where most underbed components can be easily avoided because you're working outside the frame rails, and you also have easier access with your tools and more room to work, making the whole process, less of a pain.Now these outward brackets are designed to work with the extended length base rails. We do sell those separately on our website. They're part number RP30153. Now those above bed rails are five inches longer than the standard universal rails so that they'll match up with the mounting points on these brackets, which will sit below the bed and outside your truck's frame.You can see it does include the hardware for mounting these brackets to the vehicle frame.

Nice set of instructions on how to install them. And these parts are a nice sturdy black powder coat steel, so they do resist corrosion.But that should do it for the review on the Reese Quick-Install custom outward brackets for the fifth-wheel trailer hitches.

Upgraded my truck to a 2019 F250 Superduty. Received my new rail kit and mounting brackets. Fits perfect!



by:

Installation was good and very happy. Thank you



by:

I did not use this item in my institution and was returned because I had the bed replaced with a flat bed and they used the factory placed holes in their insulation. Designed new attachment plates and had them fabricated in a local machine shop, attached using 3 half inch harder bolts each and all is working well.



by:

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.



by:

This did not fit my truck right. Front brackets fit fine. The rear brackets lined up with all the holes but the chassis strap brackets are wrong. The spacers are also too short. Contacted e trailer. They checked inventory said their boxes were all wrong also. They contacted the mfg and i waited a month only to get a box of bolts and spacers and no straps. Had to have some fabbed locally. This is for my 2024 silverado 2500 custom.



by:

Excellent parts and easy to install, had no problem at all mounting everything to my F-250 8' bed.



by:

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.



by:

Instructions not clear enough/descriptive. Took 4 hours for my mechanic to install. would have been much simpler to loosen and lift box instead of taking everything apart as per instructions. Product seems good will know how it works after hitching up trailer.



by:

The costom bracket kit is of heavy steel,powder coated for protection, from your video it is going to be a lot easier to install and save time,alot less drilling and mounting of components, I am very satisfied with this product and cannot wait to install it on my 2013 Ford f150,will be pulling a 25 foot 5th wheel camper, thanks trailer for a great product

  • Could Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit be Used with Pullrite Fifth Wheel Hitch
    There are some versions of the Pullrite Superglide hitches that are designed to fit industry standard rails which is what the bracket kit part # RP56016 is designed to work with. Which we have this as a kit with rails with part # RP56016-53 but if you have a hitch that is designed to fit the Pullrite rails we don't have a solution. Typically Pullrite puts "ISR" on their hitches that use industry standard rails like this as well as I know the 2700 is for this type of rail too.

  • Recommended Reese Outboard Brackets for 2020 Ford F-150
    I have a solution for you, but the Reese # RP56016 are only confirmed to fit on the F-250. Instead, you'll want to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034 which are a confirmed fit on the 2020 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 foot bed. These brackets are designed for outboard mounting 5th wheel rails only.

  • Custom 5th Wheel Base Rail Brackets Compatible with 2012 Ram 3500 4x4
    For your 2012 Ram 3500 Long Bed 4x4, the brackets you need are Curt Custom, No-Drill Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram # C16420. This will work with the industry standard rails you referenced. Technically you shouldn't combine brands so I also recommend getting the complete rail kit # C16420-204.

  • Are Firestone Air Bags Compatible With Reese Quick-Install Brackets and Rails on 2015 Ford F-350
    Yes, the Firestone # F2703 are compatible with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit # RP56016-53. The # RP56016 brackets mount on the outboard side of the frame rails on your F-350, and the air bags will install on the inboard side. I also recommend adding an onboard air compressor like the Firestone Air Command II # F2219. This will allow you to control the air pressure wherever you go from the cab of your truck. It is a dual path system so you can control the air...

This combination will allow you to properly install your Reese Sliding Hitch in your truck.

    Yes, we do have just the brackets available for your 2015 Ford F-350 that you can use with the Reese base rails, although the correct brackets are going to depend on which base rails you have because rails can be different lengths and will fit the brackets differently. If you aren't sure what you have, you can take a measurement, and I'll list the dimensions of the rails for you. - Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153 measure 48" long x 7-1/2" wide x 1-7/8" tall and require the...

However you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP84FR, which is the outboard installation rail kit for your 2021 Silverado 2500. This would currently be the only option available for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 that provides you with outboard mounted rails.

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for Rail Kit for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    You have to match the brand of rails to the brand of bracket kit, but if you have Reese rails the best bracket kit we have is the # RP50066 which is a custom fit kit for your truck. You'll need the hardware kit that attaches the rails to these brackets though as that hardware is considered one time use. So for that you'd want the part # 58164. If the rails you have are a different brand let me know and I'll see if we carry the matching bracket kit.

This kit is only a fit for 2011-2016 model years of Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. For your 2001 Ram 2500 I recommend using the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # RP30035 as there isn't a custom bracket kit available. If you already have the base rails then you will need the brackets and hardware # RP30439.

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.
