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:

  • Don't want to do the extra work needed to clear out paint in bolt holes and threads
  • Use a tonneau cover often and don't want to have to take out the hitch to close it
  • Prefer getting the most overbuilt hitch available, even if it's more 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.

Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - 20,000 lbs - RP30928

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (228 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty 5th-wheel hitch has a 1-piece, wraparound jaw and easy-to-see lock indicator for maximum safety and security. Fully articulating head with large landing area and kingpin target make hookup a snap.

by:

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

I love it. It’s very easy for me to setup. The only issue i had was rge breakout away cable snapped in have and i was not able to find a replacement. I had a friend who was able to make me another one.



by:

I had to return this hitch as it was unusable due to manufacturing defects. etrailer honored the return and refunded me completely.



by:

Just received yesterday, will be having it installed on Monday and will be pulling my new camper home next Saturday. Will update afterwards with pics



by:

Great product, shipped in really good time, etrailer was excellent in communication, only small problem was package was damaged in transit, and my item had some pretty bad scratches on it. But when I notified etrailer of this they gave me a choice of shipping it back in exchange for a new one or giving me a nice credit back if I could live with the scratches. I choose the latter and I thought it was great that they gave me the choice.



by:

Loved the product, hated the installation instructions



by:

I've only just got it installed and as of yet have not tested it under load. Hope to pick-up and tow my RV back home this weekend. I will update My review when I return.

Always polite and know exactly what you need for your application. Tim was a pleasure to work with.

one great hitch!

2 of the 3 boxes arived the day before it was scheduled to arrive. The 3rd box arrived the next day as scheduled. The qr code on the head did not work, it took me to a 404 error page on the Reese site.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch



  • Benefits of Fifth Wheel Hitch with 4 Way Pivoting Head vs. 2 Way Head
    The answer to your question will depend on what kind of surfaces your tow vehicle will be parked on when you hitch/unhitch the trailer. If you are going to find yourself pretty consistently on level, even pavement, then a fifth wheel hitch whose head pivots forward and back will work fine for you. On the other hand, if you will hitch and unhitch on uneven ground on a regular basis, you will thank yourself for going with a hitch that has the 4 way pivoting head, like the Reese 5th Wheel...

  • Will Reese 5th Wheel Hitches Fit in RBW Rails
    You will need to check the on center distance between the attachment points between the legs on your hitch to determine if the Reese 16K hitch will fit in the rails for your RBW hitch. If the attachment points in your rails are 20-15/16 inches apart then, you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 16,000 lbs, item # RP30047. I would recommend upgrading to the Select Plus 18K Fifth Wheel Hitch, item # RP30928, which has been recently upgraded to 20K. This hitch will give you the added...

  • How to Measure Installation Height for a 5th Wheel Hitch on a Custom Made Bed
    To measure the height that the fifth wheel head will need to be, on your custom made bed, you will need to park the vehicle and trailer on a fairly level surface and do some measuring. Back your vehicle under the fifth-wheel trailer stopping when the center of the king pin is directly above the center of the fifth-wheel attachment jaws. Measure from the top of the bed on the truck to the base of the pin box on the trailer. This will give you the measurement needed to select a mounting...

  • Custom Wedge and Sidewinder Compatibility for Curt Q5 Hitch
    There is not a custom wedge currently offered for the Curt Q5. The Curt Q Series hitches have much wider jaws than the A Series hitches, so even with a wedge, the Q Series hitches are incompatible with Sidewinders. If you have an 8-foot truck bed, you could replace the Sidewinder with a standard pin box and use the Curt hitch as planned. However, if your truck bed is 6 feet or shorter, the Sidewinder is a necessity, so the other option would be to use a different hitch. One other hitch...

  • Will a M5 Series 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch fit Husky Fifth Wheel Rails

    If you are just upgrading to the higher rated 20K Reese M5 # RP30928 from the 16K PS30093 on your 2003 Chevrolet Silverado, you will not need any additional hardware to make the switch. Both hitches are compatible with the brackets and base rails already installed on your truck.

  • Are Fifth Wheel Hitches Interchangeable on 2018 Ram 3500?
    Though the Reese Titan 16 you referenced is no longer available, the Reese Select # RP30928 is a great option, and you could take out the Curt hitch you are unhappy with and install the Reese so long as the base rails in your 2018 Ram 3500 are industry-standard rails from Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Pro Series, Reese or Valley.

You will want at least 5 or 6 inches between the overhang of the trailer and the bedrails. You also want to make sure your trailer is being towed level.

  • Recommendation to Give a Fifth Wheel Trailer and Hitch Additional Bed Rail Clearance
    Many fifth wheel pin boxes are adjustable, check to make sure yours is in the lowest position so that you would have the better bed rail clearance. They say a minimum of 6 inches of clearance between the bed rails and the fifth wheel hitch is required. Usually between raising the hitch and lowering the pin box you can get enough clearance and still have your trailer tow level.

  • How to Determine if a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Will Fit Unknown Rails in a 2004 Ford F-250
    It will be easy to determine if an industry standard hitch will fit the rails, even if we can't identify the brand and model. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows the spacing of where a hitch fits in industry standard rails. Then compare these measurements to your rails. If they are the same then you will be able to install a hitch that fits in industry standard rails such as # RP30928.

  • Ford F-250 or Ram 1500 to Tow a 2000 Damon Challenger 34 Foot 5th Wheel Trailer
    From what I could find your 2000 Damon Challenger weighs around 9,400 pounds. This should be right in the wheelhouse for a 1-ton and some 3/4 tons. I would not select a 1/2 ton truck to tow this trailer. The best trucks to tow 5th wheel trailers are 1-ton (3500/350 series) with long beds and diesel motors but gas would be fine too. Trucks with 2-wheel drive actually have higher towing capacities than 4-wheel drive models. So if you are choosing between the F-250 and a 1500 Ram, the...

  • How to Determine Towing Capacity for a 2004.5 Dodge Ram Cummins
    The final authority on what your towing capacity will be the owners manual of your 2004.5 Dodge Ram. Without knowing whether you have a 2500 or 3500 would make it pretty hard to determine. You also need to consider that even though you have modified your vehicle you still are limited to the factory capacity for your truck. Taller tire and lift kits can make it more difficult to tow the vehicle level, but it's still possible. Capacities are more than just the power the engine produces....

    It may not be the prettiest option, but you would want to go with the F-350. An F-150 would not have the capacity for how heavy of a trailer you plan on towing. Lift kits can make fifth wheel towing more difficult to set up, but that depends on how tall of a lift is on the vehicle. The main difference between an F-250 and an F-350 is the amount of weight they are designed to tow. For the most part the engines and transmissions will be the same between the two.

    Six inches is the minimum recommended clearance between the top of the bed sides and the underside of the trailer loft.

If you can adjust the head of your fifth wheel hitch up by one or two sets of bolt holes, you'll maximize your clearance.

As you are backing the truck toward the fifth wheel, make sure that the bottom plate of the fifth wheel pin box is about 1/2 to 1 inch LOWER than the skid plate of the fifth wheel hitch.

    You can use a slider type of 5th wheel trailer hitch, like # RP30051 in a long bed truck. In a long bed truck it is very unlikely that you will need to use the sliding feature of the hitch to make 90 degree turns safely. It can remain in the tow position (not slid back) and you should have enough clearance with an 8 foot bed truck. A slider should only be slid back when making tight maneuvers and not for general traveling. For something rated higher, but is not a slider, we have the Reese...
