Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

  • Above the Bed
  • Custom
  • Reese

Heavy-duty, custom brackets dramatically reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Outboard design ensures simple access to mounting points. Brackets, 10-bolt base rails and hardware included.


Features:

  • Installation brackets mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for 5th-wheel rails
  • Base rails sit in truck bed and allow installation of 5th-wheel trailer hitch
  • Fast, simple installation with outboard design
    • Extended-length base rails allow for mounting farther out from truck frame
      • Avoids underbed components for easier access
      • Cuts down installation time by more than half compared with universal kits
    • Custom brackets mount to existing holes in truck frame, minimizing drilling and measuring
  • Thoroughly tested kit is compliant with strict Society of Automotive Engineers guidelines
  • Kit includes brackets, 10-bolt rails and Grade-8 hardware
  • Compatible with B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley 5th-wheel hitches
  • Sturdy, black powder coated steel resists corrosion


Specs:

  • Base rail dimensions: 48" long x 1-7/8" tall
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Reese's outboard installation kit for your fifth-wheel trailer hitch was designed with safety and convenience in mind. Just like the original custom mounting brackets, these brackets install using existing holes in the truck frame, minimizing installation time. The biggest difference with this outboard kit is the extended-length rails. These above-bed rails are 5 inches longer than standard, universal fifth-wheel rails so that they will match up with the mounting points on the brackets, which sit below the bed and outside of your truck's frame. The result is a much simpler installation process, wherein most underbed components can be easily avoided. Because you are working outside the frame rails, you also have easier access with your tools and more room to work, making the whole process less of a pain.


The base rails included in this installation kit feature a standard 10-bolt design. Each of these rails attaches to the underbed brackets with two carriage bolts at both ends. A single bolt is used in the center of each rail to further secure it in your truck bed. The result is a set of base rails that remains firmly in place thanks to 10 points of contact.


This entire installation kit is built to be SAE J2638 compliant and has been extensively tested per specified accelerated-life-cycle criteria for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The requirements for testing are based on the European-style test of 900,000 cycles, making this testing process among the most thorough and intensive in the industry.

The hitch and mounting kit work fine for hauling my fifth wheel. The drilless mounting kit did not look like it fit correctly, the numbers and product were correct for my truck, I decided to install several bolts making it a bolt on kit. The overall assembly ans installation was a bit time consuming and needed two people to help move the parts and keep it true, but a year later and it still slips in and out without any issues. The mechanics of the hitch are still funtional and there is little to no play with in the hitch after thousands of miles used. Overall it is a hitch and preforms great. Downside is the weight of the unit making it impossible to SAFELY move with one person.




by:

The bed rails fit nicely & are made of a good sturdy brand of steel & look good in the bed of my truck. The quick installation 5th wheel brackets are much easier to install than the older style brackets. Would have given them 5 stars but, these quick install side brackets do not work with the Air Lift air bags without modification to the top brackets of the air bags.

I have always had great service from etrailer, have not installed hitch yet but all packaging was in good shape and all parts and hardware are included. If I have any problem I'm sure the people at etrailer will be there as they have been with my orders in the past.

Still very pleased, instalation was much easier than another brand I used on my last truck. I would recommend to anyone self installing. Always get what I need at etrailer!

The advantage obviously for this product is that it fits without modifications, all too often though you would have to make some sort of modification happy to say with this product it was a Bolt-on easy to install product works as described great value shipped on time have had no problems with it.




by:
2003 Chevrolet Silverado

Product worked good but was a lot harder to install than I thought. My install kit was missing a couple of washers from the rail kit, other then having to run those down things went well. Everything works as it should and I'm happy.

Hi Greoge Everything went great with the product installation . Taking off of the wheels made it go a lot faster .It took about 6 hr. its very simple not having to deal with every thing in the middle of the bed. Thanks Frank

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


Five hours to install; which included a half hour searching for the key to the padlock on my spare. E-Trailer linked me to an installation video which really helped. I took my time and measured three times before I drilled the bed. Installation is a lot easier with someone to hold the bolts from the top. I fabricated mounting brackets on my last truck, but these were worth the money and I didn't have to drill the frame! Good design and straight-forward installation. My only issue was the video didn't show one bolt install that secured the driver's side rear bracket to the bottom of the frame. I was going off the video only and wasn't using the written instructions. Make sure you go step by step using both. Also, some parts are clearly for a different application so there will be a few parts left over. My experience with e-trailer was awesome.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


Very happy how soon the product I ordered was at my door step. 3 days after I ordered it. Put the base to my 5th wheel on my 2017 250 diesel sd took me around 5 hrs, would have been faster with 2 people. The base fit my husky 16k prefect when I done torquing all the bolts. Going to use this hitch to pull my 29.5 Durango EZ 1500.

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


They fit truck just like they were supposed too. Couple hr install with having to remove spare tire and heat shields to get access to bolt locations. Been supporting fifth wheel through thousands of miles. Thanks for helping me find right product for my truck!




by:

Review from a similar Quick-Install in Fifth Wheel Installation Kit


Can’t use the carriage bolts that you supplied, except in the middle of the rail. There’s no room to put a socket on the nut between the beam and bed, there’s just enough room to use an open end wrench and torque the bolts from the bed side, Which means you have to buy 8 bolts. A video stated the same thing, you believe it’s a one man’s job, it’s not. That’s why you supplied the carriage bolts.

  • Where are the Holes Drilled in Truck Bed for Installation of Reese Elite 5th Wheel Rails
    To determine where the holes will need to be drilled in the bed of your 2006 GMC Sierra you will get the cross members mounted and then run the pointed bolt through the bottom of the crossmember till it makes contact with the bottom of the truck bed and then it will make a dimple in the truck bed that will be the guide for drilling the holes for the pucks. As to where are the holes in the frame to tighten the brackets too, check out the picture I attached that I took from the installation...

  • What is the Purpose of the Center Bolts on the Rails of a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit
    The center bolts for the rails in a 10 bolt 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit like # RP56007-53 help stabilize the rails, limiting any movement and it makes them less likely to get out of square or bow up in the middle. They are not supporting much if any of the load. The side bolts that attach to the under bed brackets are doing most of that work. I have included links to the installation instructions for this kit for you to view.

Under the towing section it lists quite a few possible capacities for the 1500 with the 3.42 axle ratio depending on a number of factors such as the engine size, cab size, bed length, and drivetrain. Depending on what your truck is equipped with you are looking at a towing capacity as low as 7,100 pounds to as high as 12,500 pounds depending on your particular model.

    What you need is a fifth wheel rail kit to install a Reese hitch in the bed of your 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500.
