Ordered this for my new 2021 RAM 1500. Order came in a timely manner. Instructions were easy to follow and installation went very smoothly. Product is very well made. My hitch fit into the rails perfect.

Very satisfied with 5th wheel rail kit. Installation was simple and it worked out great. No problems!




by:

hey Jane S,
Just finished installing
my 5th wheel hitch. I didn't have to cuss but a few times in the process. Here is my suggestions to stop others from cussing. The instructions could have been planner. Instead of mixing a truck with air suspension and coil spring suspension, divide them on separate sheets. I also didn't like mixing carriage bolts with hex head bolts, not professional looking. Hex head would have been easier to tighten also. Also instead of using crush washers, nylon locking nuts would have made the job quicker and easier.
The product was well made and fit well after we got by the instruction part.

worked great as advertised.

It’s solid fit was spot on

2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

I called etrailer on a Friday to order some base rails for a brand-new 2019 Dodge ram that I had just purchased. There was no information on the website for this truck, so I had previously called them to see what kit I needed.

My issue was timing as I needed to get the rails installed on Wednesday. They sent the product to me second day air at a reasonable cost.

The rails arrived today in two boxes. The 2 boxes could've been banded together as one package, which would've reduced the freight cost. That was the only negative in my experience.

In checking with my mechanic/installer today, the rails were installed, and it was a very challenging process. The cost was $429 for installation. I'm glad I didn't try to do it myself given the feedback I received from my mechanic.




by:

They were worked great and better quality then I expected.
Thanks for all the help I will be calling you again when I need more stuff




by:

Great price and very fast shipping.Customer service was very helpful when I called to order my hitch.




by:

Great product!

Works great. Thanks

It looks like the rails are just what I needed

  • Will the B&W Custom Installation Kit For a 2019 Ram 1500 Work with a Reese 5th Wheel Hitch
    Yes, your Reese 5th Wheel Hitch will work with the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # BWRVK2604 which is a fit for a 2019 Ram 1500 with the 6-1/2' bed. If you have a Reese Sidewinder, you can reuse this with your Reese 5th Wheel Hitch on the new 6-1/2' bed. You would still need additional clearance in order to make a full 90 degree turn and that is what the Sidewinder will allow for.

  • 2019 Ram 1500 Fifth Wheel Rail Kit to Install Husky 16K W hitch

This rail kit is confirmed as a fit for your 2019 Ram 1500 6-1/2 foot bed so it will work great in that regard as well. Since it's a custom install kit it will install in less time with minimized drilling as well.

    Since your 2020 Ram 1500 Express 1500 does not have the Eco Diesel engine I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2604 which will give you the above bed industry standard rails needed to use your Husky 5th Wheel hitch. I included a video review of the # BWRVK2604 for you to take a look at.

  • What Does B and W Patriot Slider Hitch RVK3270 Weigh
    The B&W Patriot slider fifth wheel hitch # BWRVK3270 that you referenced weighs a total of 220 lbs. While that is a lot of weight what's great about the B and W hitches is that they break down into smaller sections easily to help distribute the weight. So you can first install the slider mechanism without the head to save weight and then after that easily install the head of the hitch. It's still not light by any means but since all slider hitches weigh quite a bit this is the easiest to...

  • Custom Install Fifth Wheel Rail Kit that Fits 2019 Ram 1500 6.5 ft Bed
    We don't recommend mixing rail and bracket manufacturers. At this time (March 2019) Reese does not have a fifth wheel rail or bracket kit that fits your 2019 Ram 1500 so the best option we have is the B and W rail kit part # BWRVK2604 that you referenced. This gives you a custom rail kit that fits your truck and also fits all hitches that are designed for industry standard rails like the Blue Ox Patriot # BWRVK3270.

    The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2604 is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ram 1500 new style. It is compatible with the factory air suspension system. If you don't yet have a 5th wheel hitch, the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs # BWRVK3270 is a favorite for short bed trucks with standard rails like that. It is a great option for your truck.

  • Can RBW Lil Rocker Install on 2020 Ram 1500
    Yes an RBW Lil Rocker could be used with your 2020 Ram 1500 5-1/2 foot bed but you'd have to install a rail kit designed for your truck that is also compatible with the hitch like the B and W part # BWRVK2604. Since your truck has such a short bed you'd need to install a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer as well. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you...

  • Fifth Wheel Base Rails for 2019 Ram 1500 With Air Suspension
    There is one set of standard base rails that will work with your 2019 Ram 1500 with the factory air suspension so long as it does not have the EcoDiesel engine, the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2604. The only other thing to keep in mind is that since you are using a Sidewinder you do need a custom wedge for your fifth wheel hitch, and the correct one will depend on the hitch you have. For example if you used the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Kit for Trucks With Carbon Fiber Beds
    Other than the 2022 Toyota Tundra and the 2019+ GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, I'm not aware of any other currently available composite bed trucks. None of our vendors yet offer a 5th wheel bracket/rail option for the 2022 Tundra, but Curt offers the # C65KR bracket/rail kit for the 2019+ GMC Sierra Denali 1500, as long as it isn't the 5-1/2 foot bed.

    Absolutely! The only 5th Wheel Rail Kit made for 2021 Ram 1500 is the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2604 as long as your truck does not have the Eco-Diesel engine, or factory air suspension. This rail kit will pair perfectly with the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 if you have a 5-1/2' bed as your trailer will need to have rotating pin box to allow you to make sharper turns since a slider hitch will not offer enough clearance,...

  • B&W Custom Base Rails Compatibility With A 2021 Ram 1500 With Factory Air Bags
    Yes, the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2604 is compatible with your 2021 Ram 1500 with factory air bags. It is however not compatible with RamBoxes. Since you have a 5.5' bed I recommend either using a sliding hitch Like the # BWRVK3270 or sidewinder pin box to increase your turning radius and prevent the nose of your fifth wheel from coming into contact with the cab of your truck. Sidewinder pin boxes have specific bolt patterns so you'll...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Rails for a 2022 Ram 1500
    The fifth wheel trailer hitch that I recommend for a 2022 Ram 1500 is the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider part # BWRVK3270 which will also require the B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails part # BWRVK2604. The B&W Patriot is one of the best options on the market with thick dual jaws for a tight grip that makes for a smoother ride, a cam action handle for easy uncoupling, and a removable head to save your back. The installation kit is also custom fit so there is no...

  • Does Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitch Fit B&W Base Rails
    Yes it will; B&W base rails, including the B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails # BWRVK2604 you mentioned, give you industry-standard base rails. Both the fixed and sliding Curt A16 hitches mount to industry-standard base rails, so either will mount directly to the B&W rails. The part numbers for the two hitches are the following: - Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16120 - Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R16 Slider # C16521

  • Towing Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite with a 2019 Ram 1500
    You will need to check your vehicle specific owners manual for tow ratings. From information available to me it appears the 2021 Forest River RV Rockwood Ultra Lite 2445WS is just under 10K for gross weight. Online research shows a tow rating for the Ram 5.7L as low as 7K to as high as almost 11K for four wheel drive models. You will certainly be on the upper edge if capable. Online articles are helpful but for accurate answers of tow capacities, always consult the vehicle specific owners...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit that Fits 2021 Ram 1500 5-1/2 ft Bed with Gas Engine
    Yes the B and W fifth wheel rail kit part # BWRVK2604 does fit your 2021 Ram 1500 with a gas engine and a 5-1/2 foot bed. Since your truck bed is shorter than 6 feet there's only slider hitch that could slide back far enough to give you the turning clearance you'd need and that's the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550040 which can slide back 22-1/2 inches. This is about twice as much as a standard slider hitch. Or you could go with a fixed hitch like the Patriot # BWRVK3255 with a...

  • How to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer with 2019 Ram 1500 with Air Suspension and Ram Boxes
    Fifth wheel towing is possible with a truck like your 2019 Ram 1500 that has a Ram Box but it is a bit more challenging due to the Ram Box. Reason being the boxes are very wide and take up valuable space a pin box would need to pivot. So the solution is a Sidewinder pin box installed on the trailer as this moves the pivot point up higher above the bed rails. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so...

  • Recommended B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch For A 2020 Ram 1500

This underbed hitch is going to allow you to tow both a 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer for the best in versatility.

    It's certainly possible! We have an option from B&W that will work great for you unless your Ram has the factory air suspension option. You'd use the B&W Turnover ball goosneck hitch, part # BWGNRK1319-5W as an attachment point for the # BWRVK3400-5W Companion sliding fifth wheel hitch. This option will allow you to tow both fifth wheel and goosneck trailers for tons of flexibility.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Weight Compared to Truck Payload Capacity for Safely Towing with 2019 Ram 1500
    The 2018 Forest River Wildcat 28sgx will not be an issue for you to tow. The payload of your truck is slightly different than the hitch weight of your 5th wheel trailer. The reason for the difference is that the payload is based on the bed itself and the strength distributed over the frame whereas the 5th wheel base rails or factory pucks are directly bolted to the frame and have a much higher weight capacity because they aren't simply dispersed over the sheet metal and are directly mounted...
