Video Transcript for Reese Quick-Install 5th Wheel Base Rails Kit Installation - 2009 Ford F-250

Speaker 1: Today on our 2009 Ford F250 we'll be having a look at and installing the Reese quick install custom base rails and installation kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches, part number RP50082-58. Here's what our rails look like installed. These are industry standard rails which will accept many gooseneck adapters and other rail mounted accessories. These outboard mounted rails make for a quick and easy install and helps cut installation time almost in half compared to universal mounted rail kits. Now, compared to other rails systems on the market, these don't stick up very high above the bed of our truck at all, giving us maximum amount of bed space that we can utilized. Now when we have a plastic drop-in bed liner such as this truck, once we've cut out around it in order to install our rails properly you can see that it almost sits even with our plastic drop-in bed liner, giving us the maximum ability to lay stuff flat in the bed of our truck.One great feature about these rails is the high gloss black power coat finish that they have will offer a superior rust and corrosion prevention over the years.

These rails are super easy to use when securing your gooseneck or fifth wheel adapters. We'll show you now with our fifth wheel head. Simply take your fifth wheel, drop it down into place, and you secure it with pins and clips. Just like that, once you've secured all four corners you're ready to hook up to your particular style of trailer.Now that we've gone over some features of our Reese outboard rails, we'll show you how to get them installed. First thing we need to see is if our vehicle is equipped with a plastic drop-in bed liner such as the F250 that we have here today, we need to put our rails in the approximate position of where they're going to go.

In order to get those appropriate measurements that you can find in the instructions, you measure from the end of the bed, not the end of your tailgate. Once we get our rail in the appropriate general area where it's going to reside, we measured out about an inch around our rail, all the way around it and made some marks. We placed our unassembled fifth wheel head on this rail so we can line and position for the second rail, and we did the same thing. Now we're going to cut out these large squares so we have full metal to metal contact with our rail underneath the bed liner. You have multiple ways of doing this.

I'm going to do it with the bed liner still in the bed of the truck. If you'd like you could remove it and use a jigsaw and you can cut through it really quickly. I'm just going to use a rotary tool in order to do this.Okay, now that we've got it trimmed we can just lift up on it and we can set it aside, and we'll do the same for the other rail. Okay, with our second one notched we can start the removal process. Now that we have where our rails are going to sit trimmed out we need to find where the exact spot is that our back rail's going to sit.

To do that we'll take our tape measure. With it slid underneath our bed liner and hooked to the end of our bed now, we can measure out where the back edge of our rear rail is going to sit, and we'll make several marks so that it's in the appropriate spot. We'll also measure from side to side to ensure that we're centered. Now with our marks made we can take our rail, slide it so that it hits those marks that we made, and we can make our pilot holes at this point in time.Now for our back rail we'll be drilling five pilot holes. We'll be using the end ones here, furthest out on both sides of the rail, and then the center one here closest to the front of the vehicle. We'll drill a small pilot hole to start. Okay, now we'll take our frame bracket on the passenger side of the truck, and we'll be doing the same thing on the driver's side. We want to make sure that the holes that we drilled line up with the slots for the rear side of our rail bracket. We'll slide this in position and we can see that our holes are lining up dead center with our bracket, so this is exactly where we want them. Now on our driver's side frame rail, if your vehicle has a gasoline engine you'll have this hose running over the top of the frame rail. We need to take a trim panel tool here, or a flat head screw driver, and help pop this hose loose from the top of the frame rail, just like that. This will give us room to get our brackets into place.Now, again on gasoline engine equipped vehicles we have two hoses on the inside of our driver's side frame rail. We need to pop these loose using a trim panel tool. In some instances you may have a bolt on the outside edge of the frame that you can remove. We don't have that. Ours is just clipped in place. With that popped loose we'll be able to get our hardware in place now. Now that we've verified that our holes are lined up and we have everything out of the way of our frame that's going to potentially be in the way, we can take our rail, get it out of the way and we'll enlarge our holes with a step bit to the appropriate size. Now to help prevent some rust well use some spray paint around the inside edge of our holes that we drilled out. This will keep them from having rust over the course of time. If you have a spray-in bed liner, that's great for you. You can just use flat black spray paint. If you don't have that, clear coat's your best option, that way you don't have to worry about it matching the bed of your truck.Now that our clear coat's dried, we'll take our U shaped spacers and we'll stick them down inside the corrugation next to our outer holes. We'll make sure our U faces towards our hole, and we'll do this on all four corners. The reason I'm putting these in place is so our bed is not crushed when we tighten down our hardware, ensuring metal to metal contact. With those in place we'll set our rail back down into position. Now we'll drop down our carriage bolts. You can see where our bolts drop down for our rail. Now we'll take our frame bracket and we'll slide it up onto those bolts. We'll take one of our spacers here, stick it onto our bolt, place on a lock washer and we'll thread on a nut. We'll use this to help support the weight of the frame bracket so we can install the frame hardware. We'll get one started for now, and that will be good for us. We'll get our second one on now.Now we'll take our block for our frame, slide it between the frame and our frame bracket and this will take up the gap between the two. We'll take our carriage bolt and insert it through the hole. Then we'll knock our carriage bolt into the hole in the frame. Here's where our bolt comes through behind where those emissions lines were. We'll slide our block onto the bolt now. We'll slide on our 5/8 lock washer and then our 5/8 nut. We're just doing everything loosely attached right now. Now we'll take our U-bolt. We'll slide it behind our emissions line here, go behind this one here too, rotate it and get it into the holes in our bracket. Now we'll take our conical tooth washer, the teeth will face towards our frame bracket, slide it over our U-bolt and we'll loosely thread on our nut. We'll do the same for the upper part of the U-bolt up here. Now that we have our driver's side frame bracket in place we can repeat the same process on the passenger's side. It is a lot easier because there's no fuel lines, emissions lines or break lines that are in the way.Now that we have our frame brackets in place and our hardware loosely started for our rear rail, we'll use our fifth wheel to get the proper positioning for our front rail. Now that we've dropped in our fifth wheel head to center our rails up in place we made sure they're parallel with each other by measuring the distance between our rails on both sides, made sure our rails are centered in our truck bed. Now we will drill out our appropriate holes. We'll be using our two outermost holes yet again. For our center hole this time we will be using the hole that's closest to the end of the truck bed, closest to our other rail. Okay, with our pilot holes made now, we can take our fifth wheel head, raise it up, slide it out of the way, take our rail and get it out of the way, and we'll enlarge our holes to the appropriate size. With all of our holes enlarged we'll use our clear coat again to make sure we don't get any rust.All right, with our clear coat dry I'll take our rail, place it back over the holes and we'll drop down our carriage bolts, making sure we have our blocks in on the sides. Now we'll place our fifth wheel back into place on our rails. Okay, here's where our bolts came down on the side for our front rail. We'll place our block on up again, followed by a lock washer, and then we'll put on a nut. The other bolt's the same way. Now we'll do the same on the other side. Now underneath the bed of our truck we'll place on our conical tooth washer. These are for the center bolts and our nut. The teeth of the washer will face straight up, and before we tighten up our nut all the way we'll slide in one of our U-shaped spacers so that our bed is not crushed when we tighten up the nut. We'll do the same for the front one, too.Now we'll begin our tightening sequence. We'll start with tightening up our nuts that attach our rails to our frame brackets. We'll use a 3/4 inch socket for this. We're going to repeat the same process on the other side, now. Now we'll tighten our frame bracket to the truck frame. We'll do our U-bolts here first. Now we'll use a 15/16 socket to tighten up our big carriage bolt. Now we'll torque our bolts in the same sequence to the amount specified in the instructions. Last, but not least, we'll torque our under bed bolts here.That completes our look at and installation of the Reese quick install custom base rails and installation kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches, part number RP50082-58 on our 2009 Ford F250.

Very easy to install. I watched their online videos and followed the instructions that came with the kit step by step. I had it installed in a few hours. Installed on a 2006 F-250 Superduty

Still love it. Haven’t had any issues

The product is exactly what I was looking for. Easy to install. The brackets I think are the best part, no drilling required. With this product you can get the satisfaction that your trailers are not going to go anywhere. The etrailer staff made the ordering process very quick and painless. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the products that they sell. I will definitely recommend and order again.

Ford F-350 Super Duty

Thanks for the fast shipment, the rails are installed in my F350, and the rails fit the Air Safe Air Box perfectly. I'm looking forward to pulling my 5th wheel in a few days with a smooth ride. Thank you Caleb for the great and fast service you provided from Etrailer.




by:

Product is good quality as it appeared --5th wheel itself was not delivered with rest of kit--arrived three days later. Installation easy.
Installation kit fits perfect-easy installation. Only variable was I had pre-existing air springs , so I had to mark and drill the frame brackets and install the air springs on the outside of the brackets--no big deal--worked out fine




by:

I had a specialty truck shop install this. It cost $300 to install it very solid installation hardware




by:

I purchased the fifth wheel with the mounting kit to fit my truck. Excellent product. Easy to assemble. Arrived quickly. I completed installation in under 4 hours Thursday night, and used it Friday to transport a camper with no trouble or issues. If you are planning on installing the mounting kit yourself, you will need a torque wrench capable of achieving 212 ft-lbs of torque, and some big muscles. I liked that I could track status of shipment in route easily from the link that was emailed to me. Had 2 minor issues neither was a big deal. I gave a score of excellent because the minor issues did not really affect me, but I am noting them because they may affect another purchaser.
1. The cardboard boxes that the unit shipped in were beat up badly from the handling during shipment. There were holes in 2 of the boxes, and the tubing for the handles were sticking out of the boxes. There were 2 missing parts from the mounting kit box. A 5/8 washer and one of the specialty 1/4 inch spacers that secures the brackets to the frame. This could have been a big deal, but I have washers, and I made a spacer in my shop to replace the missing one. I did not contact Etrailer for replacement parts because I needed to install the unit so it could be used the next day. My choice.
2. The instructions from the bracket kit led me to believe that I needed to drill 4 pilot holes in the bed for the rear bracket, when I needed to drill all five. This meant that I had to take the bracket back out to drill the center hole for the fifth bolt. It took me about 10 extra minutes to install the brackets than it should have. I felt the instructions were a little unclear on that step. Other than that the instructions were straight forward, simple and easy to follow.

I would purchase this product again if I needed another wheel, and I would order from Etrailer again.




by:

Impressive how fast the order came, the part I wanted was on back order for 2 months and Stacey helped me get the same thing in another brand, I haven't installed it yet, but I'm sure it'll fit good.




by:
2001 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

I am fairly mechanical but this bracket and rail system was not the custom fit I thought after reading the reviews. Spent the extra 100.00 to save myself some time not having to drill the frame but holes in the brackets were poorly aligned so fought that first. While trying to bolt the rails down using the supplied carriage bolts found that they were to short to get the spacers,lock washer and nut on. Called etrailer for tech support and spent 10 minutes on hold while the young lady helping me read me the directions I was looking at and then talking to someone ? in tech support who had no idea how to address my problem. Ended up calling Reese tech support directly and their suggestion was to go get longer carriage bolts. Really ? I ended up making it work but had to crank each nut and bolt down without the lock washer then taking each one back off and I had gained enough room to get everything on. It was a PITA and not what I expected with custom fit brackets. This was on a 2001 Ford with 70,000 miles that has had a bedliner its whole life so the bed was not the issue. Not sure why this happened but less than impressed. If the tolerances are this close as far as bolt length you think Reese could spring for bolts another 1/4 to 1/2" longer.

Given that this rail kit is custom-built for my truck, it fit perfectly and was easy to install. I originally ordered a universal rail kit from someplace else, but as I was preparing to install it, I realized that there was to much margin for error. The instructions were unclear for my truck and I'd have to drill a bunch of holes that might end up being wrong in the end. Additional research led me to etrailer.com where I found the rail kit I should have ordered in the first place. The website had excellent information, the right products, and a great price-match policy. I should have ordered from etrailer in the first place and saved myself a lot of time.

Direct fit is the way to go, no holes to drill and everything lined up perfect. Thanks for your help Caleb!




by:
2008 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Inexpensive.
Very quick shipping.
Well
packaged.
Easy installation (watch the etrailer install video).
Poor quality material. Both frame brackets rusted out in 7 years.
Purchased again because of the price.




by:

Installation took some time, just take your time and follow instructions and the end results will be rewarding and you wont have to pay the high labor rate for some shop to the work. End results money in your pocket and you know how it has been installed.

First hitch Reese RP30869 with this bracket.
I
have a F250 diesel with a 6 and 3/4 bed.
We went to a home depot parking lot to put it on, in case we needed any other tools. Very simple to install.
We were able to install this hitch with the custom brackets without even taking the tires off.
Very easy, took about 3 hours, could have been faster you were to remove the tires-hard to tighten to the right foot pounds.
All you need is a few sockets-some deep and some regular, 2" and 6" extension, a torque wrench, drill, drill bits and an extra set of hands if I remember correctly.
For my first hitch, everything was pretty easy.
Etrailer was very helpful with install videos and customer service was excellent.
All pros, no cons, and it looks good too.




by:

Good product quality at a fair price. Service for shipping and follow up top notch. I will be going to etrailer.com site first for all my RV and towing needs in the future !
Thanks.

I ordered the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches and it was as advertised. Installation was straight forward and easy. I will buy custom rails again. thanks




by:
2004 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

We got our hitch rails delivered in a very short amount of time. Due to having a gooseneck under floor ball already installed, we had a mechanic uninstall that and install our new rails. He told us they were very easy to install, but only had one bolt for the front, so he added a couple more bolts and drilled 2 holes. Other than that issue, he advised they were well built and easy to install.
We have our hitch on and the trailer hooked up and ready to go.




by:

Ordered this kit to replace my other one when I put a new box on my old truck. It seems to be a lot stronger than the old one. I like the plates that go along the frame rail. My old one just have l brackets. Installation was smooth. No trouble at all. Was simple to bolt on. Think I had to remove my overload spring stopper that was bolted on the frame but that was ok since I am installing airbags also.




by:

System was dead on and easy to install. Everything you need is included and the side plates fit my truck frame exactly.

After one year of using we have had no problems.

Highly recommend this piece and etrailer as well.

Rail kit fit well in my 2003 Ford F-350, Easy to install. Called and spoke with customer service to make sure I ordered the right kit, very helpful.
All parts came in the two packages, one box was slightly damaged but no missing parts. Will use etrailer again in the future if any replacement parts are needed for the used 5th wheel hitch that I bought




by:
2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty

These brackets made my life so much easier as far as the install goes. The print on the instructions was very faded making it hard to see the illustrations. But after reading the text and watching Etrailer.com's informative video for the install on the 2006 f350, it was pretty easy. All total about 2.5 - 3 hours and my brackets and hitch were installed. If I had help im sure it would have been quicker but I did it on my own. The quality of the brackets and hardware was top notch along with super fast shipping and service from Etrailer.com. Thanks!




by:
2014 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I bought this for my 2004 ford f250 diesel to pull my 2014 35' fifth wheel it worked just like it should.I had it installed and the shop was very satisfied with this product.
I had some questions for technical support and they were very helpful.I would rate this product as excellent.




by:
2000 Ford F-350

I called e trailer and told them what truck and hitch I have and they sent this in the mail.
Was very easy install took about 3 hours though time would be cut in half if it came with better instructions. The install video helped me out a bunch though so I'm happy they posted that video.
Get yourself quality drill bits my 9/16th was a dewalt titanium bit and after the 6th hole it was shot but I was able to force my way through the last two holes. Very happy with my purchase would definitely recommend and saved myself a ton of money doing it myself :):)




by:
2000 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Great service - quick delivery. I researched a lot of 5th wheel hitches for my 2000 f-350 dually and the 20K Reese with the 50058 rail kit was all it claimed to be. The frame mounts lined up perfectly. The only drilling required was the rail mount holes. I am extremely satisfied with the product.




by:

Very well made and sturdy! Easy to remove when necessary.

  • Why NOT to Use Bed Bolts for Installing a 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2009 Ford F350
    The first reason you would not want to use the bed bolts to install fifth wheel hitch rails using truck bed bolts is because it has never been tested, so even if it could potentially work I could not safely recommend you do it. The next reason is, that while the truck bed bolts do attach to the frame, they attach to a portion of the frame that consists of relatively thin formed sheet hat channel, not thick structural channel or tube. This would crush under the weight of a heavy trailer....

  • Installation Kit and Base Rail Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-350 with a Valley 5th Wheel Hitch
    As long as your Valley hitch uses the industry standard above bed base rails, then I recommend installing the Reese Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit and Base Rails, # RP50082-58. This kit comes with custom frame brackets that do not require any frame drilling to install and the included base rails are compatible with all fifth wheel hitches that use the standard above bed rails. If you have a Valley UBS hitch, then we do not have an install kit that will work. We have installed this...

  • The Average Person Can Install a Reese Pro Series Fifth Wheel and Installation Kit
    Most of our customers are, average Joes, and most of our customers do the installation themselves. If this is the first time you have done something like this, you might want to make sure you have a full Saturday or Sunday and the weather is nice, but I have confidence that you or you and a friend will do just fine. The instructions are available see link and the rails in the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Kit with Brackets and Rails - Ford Super Duty, item # RP50082-58,...

  • Putting a Fifth Wheel Hitch on a 2000 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    From the tailgate of your truck, to the edge of the rail closest to your cab, it will measure 56-3/8 inches. As long as you have that measurement and as long as the king pin rides above the tool box, you should not have any problem.

  • Cab and Chassis Vehicles and Foot-Tab Measurement 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    The Cab and Chassis model is the line of pickups designed for aftermarket beds such as dumps and flatbeds. Ford builds these with different frame dimensions and the aftermarket bed will effect the installation of a fifth wheel hitch. The foot-tab measurement is the measurement between the mounting holes (front to back) where the feet of the fifth wheel set in the mounting rails, once the rails are installed. Your 2004 Ford F-350, with a standard 8 foot bed, will use the RP50082-58 Custom...

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Information for a 2001 Ford F-250
    You will need 3 basic components, the frame brackets, bed rails and the fifth wheel itself. The frame brackets bolt to the frame underneath the bed. The bed rails sit in the bed and attach to the brackets on the frame through the bed. The fifth wheel then sits in the rails and is held in with 4 pins. The bracket and rail kit for a 2001 Ford F-250 8 Ft. Bed is part # RP50082-58. You would then choose a fifth wheel according to the total weight of the trailer and the load inside the trailer....

  • Can I Use Lil Rocker 15K Hitch and Rails With Reese Frame Brackets for my 1999 Ford SuperDuty
    We do not typically recommend mixing manufacturers with brackets and rails. It is safer to use the same brand when it comes to brackets and rails, not to mention the install is usually easier. It would be fine to use your Lil Rocker hitch in Reese rails and attach the Reese rails with Reese Brackets. My suggestion is to buy the complete install kit for your 1999 Ford SuperDuty, part # RP50082-58. This kit includes the custom fit frame brackets and Reese rails. Your Lil Rocker 15K is compatible...

  • Rear Tires Wearing on a Ford F-350 Dually With Overload Springs When Towing a Fifth Wheel Trailer
    If you used the Reese install kit, part # RP50082-58, your hitch centerline would already be forward of the axle. I have included a link to the instructions below. The last page shows where the hitch should be in relation to the axle. If you move too far forward, you will run into clearance issues when turning. I am wondering if the trailer is nose heavy and moving some things around in the trailer may get some of the pin weight off and reduce the weight on the axle. Hitch up the trailer...

  • Are There Fifth Wheel Kits That Do Not Require Drilling Holes in the Truck Bed
    At this time none of the manufacturers build an install kit that uses the bed bolt holes. They are too far apart and at those distances, it would be very difficult to design a mounting and rail system for the Fifth Wheels. There is no way to get around drilling holes in the bed of the truck for a 5th Wheel or a goose neck. The install kit with the bracket and rails, part # RP50082-58 does not require any drilling of the frame, but you will still need to drill some holes in the bed itself.

  • Which Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2008 Ford F-250 and a 12,000 Pound Trailer
    The ride quality is not affected by the weight capacity of a fifth wheel hitch so long as the trailer is within the capacity of the truck and hitch. A 15K fifth wheel would handle trailer with a GVWR of 12,030 pounds just fine, however, heavier hitches usually have more pivots which may be why you were told to use an 18,000 pound hitch. You would use install kit, part # RP50082-58 for your 2008 Ford F-250. This kit includes the brackets that attach to the truck frame, and the rails that...
