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 want to be able to close it without having to take out the hitch

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.

Kimberly was very professional and a delight to deal with. I received the hitch when she said I would with no problems. Plan on dealing with you again. Thank you.

After a year of use with my our new truck this hitch has performed perfectly. I pull a 30’ Keystone 5th wheel and it is a breeze to hook up and go. Great product. Working with etrailer is a breeze to. Awesome job guys.

This hitch is the easiest to hook up and unload than any i've used in the past. The customer service is also the best i've dealt with


Was easy to assemble and fit my truck perfectly just as described

2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

Fast deliver. Easy to install with the puck system on Dodge Ram.


Love it very good hitch and easy to see the tow and no tow that’s a plus would recommend to my friends.


Great product but the instructions to install were not helpful. I had to take it to a dealership to have it installed


Super fast delivery. Had an issue with the plastic handle being broke but Greg is taking care of it as soon as they come off back order.


Danielle is amazing!! I would hire her to work for me in an instant!!
My Hitch showed up on time. Great service!!




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.

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

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

The installation video was great and assembling the hitch went very well. I have a tonneau cover and it mentioned that you may need to place the handle upside down. I actually attached mine right side up and just tilted the hitch to that side and had plenty of space to close the cover.


Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

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.

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

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I have used your product for many years and have always been very happy. On the installation and assembly I have the following comments. To qualify myself, I spent many years running facilities that builds equipment for distribution all over the world.

Someone needs to have a discussion with your assembly Supervisor and Technicians about installing the cotter pins on the crown nuts. They obviously KNOW they are going to have to be removed to adjust the BY HAND tightness that has to be done during the installation process because they send (4) extra cotter pins for replacement purposes. I would recommend that the assembler or technician bend the pin just enough to keep it in the CROWN NUT DURING SHIPPING with an explicit WARNING that states "FULLY SET COTTER PINS AFTER FINAL HAND TIGHTNING ADJUSTMENT". The way mine came in, It was a pure pain in the ass to get them out.... the technician had hammered them flat to the top of the bolt. If I were your company, I would be concerned about the people that did not adjust the puck clearance because of the pain in the ass it is to get the pins out. (I just happened to have all the tool to do this, I'm sure a lot of people don't). Apparently your QC department only spot checks the pull handles for fitment on the slide plate. I had to open mine up to make it fit. Also, you could use prevailing torque nuts for connecting this arm and do away with the lock washer. I would say the device is very good as it is now. It would be Fantastic with more thought given for the installer concerning the cotter pin issue. I have looked at many of the Ratings and it seems the cotter pin issue is the number 1 issue. The paint on the threads is common on everything that is powder coated. I hope this helps your company. Oh, I changed my rating to a 5 star because I really like the final product


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.

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

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

After a lot of research, I chose the Reese M5. The design is great. Assembly was a breeze, and it installs and removes very easily. The fitment with my 2019 Silverado puck system is perfect. I am much more comfortable with the single jaw hitch and with the M5's Easy Latching Handle, its a breeze to hitch and unhitch. etrailers price made it an even easier decision. Sometimes a lower price means a lower quality. Absolutely not the case here with etrailer. Couldn't be more happy with this purchase, Reese and etrailer

This is my first fifth wheel so it makes sense that it is my first 5th wheel hitch. Well, I couldnt be happier with the M5. It is very user friendly. The Red Green indicator gives me peace of mind when hitching up and knowing I am securely locked in. I am in the construction trades and need the full bed of my truck frequently. Removing the M5 is a breeze whenever I need to haul or transport something. I would buy again and definitely recommend the M5. 100 Satisfied. Thanks Reese and etrailer.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Installed into a 2022 GMC Sierra 3500 AT4. Assembly was fairly straightforward. Shipping was fast. I haven't used it yet, but this is my second Reese hitch. I purchased this one because of the always ready to receive option, and the locked not locked indicator.


Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I want my B&W back. Not happy at all with this, and etrailer customer service was just as bad. The locking indicator was broke when it came out of the box. I contacted etrailer, they said they would contact the manufacturer, well 10 days later still haven't heard back. Also the locking mechanism has a bolt that goes through into the ouck system. That bolt has 1 side flat, to allow for posistive placement, well reese decided it would be fun to install this 90 degrees the wrong way, and not align the flat side of the bolt up with the notch in the handle. So now to to remove it, the threads will be trashed, and or the positive placement will slip some, if I just twist it to align. Horrible Q and A on Reese's part, and horrible customer service on etrailers part, oh and I am a reseller for etrailer, so I look bad as well.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

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.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Installed in a 2018 GMC 3500 LB SRW

it was really easy to put together. Its light enough move in and out and very sturdy. I did not have a clearance issue with the Backflip cover regarding the stock handle. See pics.

Just a heads up, I had an issue with the threading in the legs, etrailer was very understanding and sent me out replacements supper fast. I contacted Reese regarding paint guncked up in the threading and they were aware of the issue, they recommended running a wire brush or a tap to clean it out.

One year later. No issues. I get complemens about how easy the hitch is to use, the ability to slide stuff under it, and how much room I still have in the bed with the hitch in. Would buy again.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

The GOOD: Very solid hitch, well designed and easy in and out of truck bed.
The BAD: plastic indicator is useless, pops out all the time, Engineering failure #1. If you have to hitch hard, it will knock it out of alignment and the handle will NOT latch or unlatch properly, needs heavier center pin in jaw.
Keep lots of Grease on the talon and pin to help the latching action smooth.
Good hitch just needs a little tweaking.

Hitch is still going strong, and have had no problems since the initial break in period. Hitch indicator has fallen out and the talon is still misaligned so I cant use a nylon plate so I get Grease everywhere. Overall a good solid Hitch. None of the crazy configurations you see out there, just a beefy Hitch that works.

Great hitch! Went together as per the instructions, pulls our 20,000 lbs 5th wheel great. Love the positive "Green" when the pin is in place as well as the wrap around jaw, real selling points for me.

Love this hitch over the last year! Pulled our 20,000 lbs 5th wheel over 11,000 miles in the last year without any issues what so ever.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I recently purchased a Reese M5 20K hitch for my new Silverado 3500HD, Crew Cab, 8’ bed. As usual, Etrailer pricing was very good and with free shipping to boot. The hitch arrived via UPS in just a few days after placing the order.

Following the detailed instructions provided by Reese, the install into the factory “puck” system, was fairly straight forward. However, a word of caution concerning the install. There are 4 15/16” bolts that need to be torqued to 220-foot pounds and are somewhat difficult to get to. Fortunately, I was able to borrow a torque wrench that would accommodate the recommended foot pounds of torque.

Also, you may have an issue if you need to place the hitch at its highest position. The release handle might protrude above the bed rails of your truck in this position. This will be a problem if you have a bed cover. Reese is/was well aware of this issue and sells an after-market handle that will correct this issue. Etrailer lists this handle on their Web page.

Review from a similar M5 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Instructions were pretty good, except I didn’t notice that you had to put the Reese sign facing the back of the bed of the truck. I had to take it a part and turn 180 degrees. also the indicator coming on green is not working correctly. I have to take the top part off to see where it’s hanging up. but it worked fine telling back-and-forth. I just didn’t have a green indicator when I towed.

You mentioned that the green indicator is not working for you. I wanted to see if you could send a picture of the 5th wheel when it is hooked up the trailer to show where the indicator is not showing.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/05/2022
Hi Jenny, Thanks for replying. I have already talked to Reese and have fixed the problem. The greenred indicator pops into place and it had slipped out a little. Thanks again.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Factory Puck System For Turning Point Pin Box
    Okay, we can definitely get you the right hitch the first time, but since you are going to be using the Turning Point pin box, you will want to use a fixed 5th wheel hitch as opposed to a sliding hitch. A sliding hitch isn't going to be needed with a rotating pin box like the Turning Point, and they are both heavier and costlier than fixed hitches so you'd be spending more money for a sliding feature you won't be using. The Companion you mentioned won't work either because it won't fit...

    To answer your first question, yes, Sidewinder/5th Airborne pin boxes are very sturdy. They have quite a bit more capacity than your 11k trailer would require too. There are 20k versions of the Sidewinder like the part # RP34FR but it does not come with the cushioned feature. For an 11k trailer though the 16k options would be more than adequate.

    The highest rated fifth wheel hitch available for a 2018 Ram 3500 through Curt is 24,000 lbs using the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package part # C16046. The highest rated that we offer is 27,000 lbs using Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package part # RP37FR. The Mopar M30 5th Wheel Hitch uses a Curt head and Mopar base. We do offer the head (part # C16590) but not the base as this is only obtained through the dealer.

  • Recommended Maximum Capacity 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with 2013 and Newer Ram OEM Pucks
    I may have a solution for you, but it looks like you've got the a Curt Q20 sliding hitch and # C16022 adapter for your Ram OEM pucks, which won't be compatible with a Curt PowerRide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 30,000 lbs # C22ER. The issue you'll run into though is that the highest rated adapter for your pucks that will provide you with industry standard rails is the # RP30154, which has a 25,000-lbs capacity. The highest capacity hitch available that will fit in the 2013-20...

  • Recommended Air Bags for 2020 Ram 3500 for Use with In Bed Hitch
    It looks like you already decided on a hitch with the Reese M5 # RP37FR, which is a great choice for your toy hauler.

I recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers - Rear Axle # AL88231, which can...

  • Leveling a Trailer To Match New Truck Height
    The LC407131 Would definitely help raise the Fifth Wheel. It will generally add approximately 2 inches to the height of the trailer. We do not have any install videos for this as of yet, but I did include a review for you to take a look at. Another add on you may want to check out is an Ultra-Fab skid roller # UF48-979023. This would install on the rear bumper and essentially gives you an extra wheel when you go over very steep grades. If neither of these get you nice and level, you could...

  • How Much Does Reese M5 5th Wheel Hitch Weigh for 2020 Ram 3500
    The Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # RP37FR altogether weighs in at 195 lbs when it comes to shipping so we are looking at about 190 lbs without the shipping packaging. The head assembly alone that you remove weighs in at 48 lbs which means the rest of the base weighs about 140 lbs. You can technically take the center section and remove it from the legs which essentially splits that weight in half but that's going to be more work and I don't think it will...
