Heavy-Duty Towing

Specially designed for the serious tower, this fifth-wheel trailer hitch mounts directly to your medium-duty, cab-and-chassis-style truck for absolute stability and maximum towing capacity. This hitch is not intended for light-duty pickup trucks, and its towing capacity will be limited to the gross towing weight rating of your vehicle. Installation of the Reese low-profile fifth-wheel trailer hitch may require welding and moderate fabrication to ensure that the hitch is connected either directly to your vehicle's frame or to a substantial steel support structure that connects to the frame. Do not fasten to your truck's floor only.



Reese Double Jaw

Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Unlike the more economical slide-bar models, the rounded, 2-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.

by:

heavy and strong! But terrible design. Forward and back pivots smooth but side to side the fifth wheel moves on a half moon under two pins... first time out I thought I was loosing the trailer. Every corner expect a slam and your truck to shift. Its embarrassing to ride around with a truck that sounds like it’s going to fall apart. Would not recommend.



by:

So overall this is a good hitch but would recommend an upgrade. I own a 2005 Freightliner Sportchassis. I pull a 14k fifth wheel. The hitch is an overall good design. The Sportchassis has predrilled holes already in place to fit this hitch. No drilling necessary. The only problem that I have with it is the side to side motion of the hitch head is very abrupt. The fore and aft movement is very smooth. The hitching and releasing is good. The hitch is built solidly. The head assembly rides on 4 metal roller assemblies and is supposed to roll left and right. With weight pulling on the head it rubs against the metal on the frame and provides excessive friction for the head. Once the trailer pivots enough, the head slams against the roller pins and sounds like the trailer is gonna break free. A very disturbing sound. My previous hitch was a b&w in a f250 and it was smooth as silk. The hitch does provide all that I need from it. With comparison to the other MDT hitches on the market it is the cheapest. I will probably with time upgrade to another hitch but it does provide what I need it for. If you are trying to save money on a MDT hitch, it works. If money is not an issue I would probably look at alternatives.

Took almost a week before etrailer shipped it, but then it arrived within couple days.

Great hitch, perfect for those with Flatbed Trucks.

Easy installation, to flatbed platform. Great hitch, I have towed over 100 5thwheels with it this past yr. I like how it will automatically open, then reclose when you back up up to connect. Components of the hitch are really tight when new, but seems to work better after a few uses and continued lube spraying. Overall very satisfied..



by:

Purchase and shipping was a breeze. Reese hitch had poor QC. I had to have the side panels re-tapped as all 4 bolt holes were full of slag from the welding process. Once the frame was mounted, the top head would not drop in as designed. The use of a wood block and a sledge solved the problem. The ears for the pins were slightly bent in. Although the powder coat is good (partial cause why the head didn't drop in) the thickness caused problems getting the handle on. I had the drill out the handle and sand down the shaft. A bit more work than I expected. Looks to be strong and safe at this time. Once installed, it works as designed. Just be prepared to add some time to the installation.



by:

After several local rv stores said they did not have hitch that would work for my 2005 c4500 I found this hitch on etrailer. It was heavier, 25000 lbs capable, than
The local dealers (16000). I called etrailer and they were extremely helpful. I needed this quickly and was going to spend the money to have it overnighted but the lady asked where I lived. When I said central Missouri she said they could send it regular mail and I would get it the next day at no extra cost. It arrived as promised and it was easy to install. etrailer is the only place I will use for trailer parts. Great company and great service, they know what they are talking about!



by:

FYI Y'all need to get the dimensions right the base plate is not 20 1/4 inches center to center left to right it's 19 1/4 inches with the brackets flipped in and 15" on center front to back. Brackets flipped out would be 22 1/2 inches on center with brackets out.



by:

This is the second 5th wheel my company has bought for hauling cars in two years and both are the same model. They are working great and won't buy any other one for my company.



by:

Great 5th wheel and great customer support! Very reliable!



by:

The shipping was fast and it got here very timely but I have not installed the product as of yet to let you know what I think about the hitch but will update once it’s installed.

  • Which Fifth Wheel Hitch is Designed to Fit Truck with Flat Bed
    For trucks with a flat bed the low profile fifth wheel hitch from Reese part # RP30054 that you referenced is the best choice since it sitting lower allows a fifth wheel hitch an easier time to be towed level. This is due to flat beds sitting higher than standard beds that rest directly on the truck frame. You'll have to come up with a way to fabricate the install using this hitch. It will need to be braced directly to the truck frame.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a International 4700
    The only fifth wheel hitch I would recommend for your International 4700 that we carry would be the Reese Low Profile fifth wheel hitch part # RP30054. There isn't a install kit available for this hitch though. You would need to take the vehicle to a qualified fabricator to have the installation custom fabricated. You may be better off getting a fifth wheel hitch for larger vehicles like semi-trucks depending on what you are planning on towing. The # RP30054 has a 30k capacity.

  • How Would the Reese Low Profile Fifth Wheel Hitch attach to Cab and Chassis Frame
    It would take a very custom install that would require a qualified fabricator to come up with a way to attach the rails to the frame of your truck. Since, like you said, the frame rails of the truck are wider than the attachment points for this hitch there would need to be a bracket made for attaching the hitch to the frame. Reese recommends the use of 1/2 inch thick steel plate welded directly to the frame.
