Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Like being able to back-up to your king pin and hook up without having to get out to open and close the jaws each time
  • Tow with a dually truck or aren't super tall and like having a longer handle to make it easier to throw open the jaws
  • Have a pin box that doesn't extend down very far and need a hitch that sits almost even with your bed rails

No, if you:

  • Use a tonneau cover often and want to be able to close it without having to take out the hitch
  • Don't want to do the extra work needed to clear out paint in bolt holes and threads
  • Prefer the most overbuilt option available, even if it's more hitch than you really need

Forged, Self-Latching Jaw

Self-Latching Jaw

The one-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel hitch provides absolute security with its wraparound design. Increased jaw-to-king-pin contact results in not only a stronger connection, but less noisy rattling and stiff chucking as well.


The jaw is also always ready to receive, so you don't need to use the handle to open it before backing up toward your trailer. As long as the bail pin is removed from the latching handle, the jaw will accept the king pin as it enters the hitch.


Finally, the jaw is self-latching, so it will automatically secure your trailer's king pin when it moves into the jaw.


Quiet, Comfortable Ride

Pivot Bushings

In addition to the tight jaw tolerance, a close connection between the head and the pivot bushings further reduces rattle and movement. And because the pivot bushings are independent from the head, they can be tightened to ensure a strong connection over time.


King Pin Indicator Prevents High Pinning

King Pin Indicator

This M5 hitch features a built-in king pin indicator to ensure proper hookup. This indicator is located on the back of the head along with a V-shaped notch that are both visible from the cab of your truck. The V-notch is lined up with the jaw at the front of the hitch, and can be used as a guiding point to line the king pin up with the jaw as you back up your truck. The jaw also has an internal plate that keeps the king pin from entering if it is too high to enter safely. As a result, the king pin indicator will only change from red to green if the king pin is fully engaged in the jaw.


Easy-to-Use Latching Handle

Lever and Hitch

This hitch's handle is designed for smooth motion and effortless operation. It requires only 2 fingers to use and won't bind up as you pull. In addition, the handle is long, so it's easy to access from outside of your truck bed. And the ergonomic grip makes it comfortable to hold and pull from different angles.

by:

Overall I’m happy with how the M5 functions. The assembly instructions were a little vague which meant I had to do it twice. I am disappointed in how the side accent panels are (were) attached. ALL the cheap little panel fasteners were broken and so I’m operating without them. I’ll keep the nylon spacers and use bolts instead of that plastic garbage. I would have sent it back if it were not for taking delivery of my camper the next day.


Comments
I have reached out to the manufacturer and they are shipping out new fasteners. I will email you the tracking information.

Great hitch! I was worried that I purchased too much hitch, but that was not the case! Easy to put together and very easy to install!


Comments
Awesome! General maintenance has kept the Reese 5th Wheel Hitch working as expected. Has proven to be fairly easy to move in and out of my RAM pickup!

The people at etrailer.com are awesome. Shipping company lost one of the boxes of a 3 box shipment. I got ahold of Nicole @ Etrailer and within a short amount of time Etrailer replaced the box and now shipment complete. Now just waiting on the truck it goes in.




by:

Great hitch overall, I would buy another (4.5 stars)
- very secure and solid
- easy to move in and out of a truck bed

Some notes to consider:
- the base-legs and middle assembly need to be properly torqued, and most buyers won't have a torque wrench up to the task
- head plate paint coating is easily scratched by the kingpin when hitching, which will then eventually rust (within a few days if you're near the ocean).

- If you're buying a new 5th wheel, the deal may offer installation of your hitch, and hitch-up your RV while the purchase is finalized. Insist that the installer uses a lube plate, otherwise again, the bare-metal pinbox will scratch the devil out of it.

- The head plate was replaced after 30+ hitch/unhitch cycles due to some mechanical deformation of the lever actuated internals (in addition to scratch enabled rust). Under warrenty, the expense equates to a $[XXX] shipping fee. Black rustoleum paint was used to cover exposed metal, but it gets rubbed off during normal towing conditions.

Enjoy!

Several broken plastic pieces from the fasteners that hold on the sides to the nameplate that was completely destroyed. Not to mention no instructions and the qr code only gets you to a generic website where you have to add the part number and then you can follow a link that still doesn't show you how to install.

by far the easiest 5th wheel hitch I have ever installed. solid




by:
2019 Ram 3500

Ordered hitch on Saturday evening 3/7/20 and hitch was delivered on 3/12/20. Can't ask for better service. Replacing an aging hitch that had issues.
Only issue would be with Reese. The 8 plastic rivet push clips that hold the side trim on the legs were broken. Would suggest that they use bolts instead. Might eliminate possible future ratteling as the plastic wears.




by:

Awesome hitch, operates with ease, easy to install




by:

Very sturdy and reliable 5th wheel hitch but after a couple of trips during the summer, the green/red indicator mounting pin which is made of a cheap hard plastic material sheared off. I was able to di-assemble the whole indicator assembly, drilled a hole and replaced the pin with a metal pin. Anyway, don't get me wrong. I love this 5th wheel hitch because of it's simplicity and appearance. It also mounts perfectly to the OEM gooseneck mount on my 2019 RAM 2500 Big Horn. Aside from re-enforcing the plastic indicator pin, I would also recommend to have a heavy duty cover designed specifically for this model.




by:

The blue side covers can be removed is you don't wish them to be on the hitch.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


We are so very pleased with our 27K hitch! The order process was easy and delivery was very fast. We have used a Reese hitch for years now. We just upgraded our fifth wheel RV and it wieghs in at 16K our old hitch was an 18K hitch so we were within 2K of max weight. We felt that that was too close so we went big, it feels (pulls) better and I feel more safe knowing that we have plenty of hitch. Thank you for such great products.
Jason and Patricia

The hitch is amazing, we have been pulling our 42 fifthwheel all over and its like it isnt even there. No pops or squeaks either. Very very pleased.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


This would be a three but etrailer's customer service is excellent. Everyone I've dealt with has been exceptional.

Reese needs to get their act together. Three month backorder (okay COVID-19 has everyone backed up). Finally get the order and the release handle grip is destroyed, just crumbled almost like it was cooked. I have to adjust the pucks, which is expected, but Reese installed the Carter pins, which are a [beast] to remove in order to adjust the puck, suggestion Reese just leave them out for the installer to install. The the final [blow] from Reese on top of their otherwise great paint job, the bolt holes for the assembly are filled with paint, Reese howabout running a thread chase through these threads so the installer doesn't risk cross threading the bolt, it's just the small things that would make an otherwise outstanding hitch better.


Comments
Thanks for your words. Customer Service will reach out to you about the broken handle.

Aside from my initial comments this hitch has been great. No issues at all.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Tried to install this on a 2001 Chevy Silverado 3500, dual rear wheel, long bed, 4x4, diesel engine truck. The clamp style mounting simply does not work. The ONLY way I can see this working is by drilling added holes in the frame of the truck at the front end of the side plates. This is because of a bend in the frame at the clamp location. Also at this location the frame is boxed in and any bolt holes will be hidden. Bolts would have to fished in with bolt wires.


Comments
I see that you are stuck on some parts of this installation. I have gotten in contact with one of our technicians and they had mentioned that you should be able to find what you need in the instructions on page 5. https:www.reeseprod.comproduct-assetsinstallN30926.pdf

  • Does Reese 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Ram 3500 with Prep Package Come Fully Assembled
    According to Reese some of 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30918 for your 2016 Ram 3500 are assembled and some are not. It looks like the ones they send to us are not assembled. But there really isn't a whole lot to the assembly and installation. I have included a link to the installation and assembly instructions for you. Since your truck has the factory prep package there is nothing else you would need. I have included a link to a video review of this hitch for you.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 3500 Long Bed with Hitch Prep Package
    The Ram hitch prep package of your 2014 Ram 3500 has much wider spaced install-pucks than the standard Elite hitch foot print so you would have to go with a new hitch. What you would need is the Reese Hitch part # RP30918 as this is a similar style hitch that would fit your OEM rail kit. Since you have a long bed truck you would not need a slider hitch. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Setup Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 2500 with Short Bed
    When you tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck that has a bed length that is less than 8 feet you need to use a slider hitch so that when it comes time to make a tight turn you can slide the hitch back and give you enough clearance to execute the turn without interference from the trailer and cab. Or, you might be interested in a Sidewinder pin box. A Sidewinder moves the pivot point back 22 inches so that when you go around corners you don't have to get out and slide the hitch back....

  • 20k Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ram 3500 with Hitch Prep for Smooth Ride
    The hitch I would highly recommend is the Reese part # RP30918. This fits directly to the rail kit of your 2015 Ram 3500 and has a 20k capacity. To prevent chucking/noise this hitch uses a hook which grabs the king pin and holds it tightly which reduces movement. Air bag kits don't make the ride quality softer. They are intended to give the suspension additional support so they wouldn't be what you are looking for.
