  • Replacement Brackets for Reese RP87FR Under-bed Rail and Installation Kit
    I believe you're talking about what Reese refers to as inner brackets because they mount to the inner surface of the truck frame. They offer the inner brackets as # RP27FR, as shown in the provided photo.

  • Is Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With Reese Underbed Rails on 2019 Ford F-250 FX4 4WD
    I'm glad you asked because the Demco Hijacker will work with the Reese base rails for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but you will need a different part number. The reason is, the Reese underbed rails for your truck essentially give you the Ford puck mounting system, so what you will need is the Hijacker that fits the Ford factory 5th wheel prep. So, the correct parts that will fit are the following: - Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches...

  • Can a 2017 Ford F-250 SRW Safely Tow a 5th Wheel RV with 17K GVWR
    According to the 2017 Ford Towing Guide it looks like the max a 2017 Ford F-250 SRW 6.2L V8 can tow is 15,700 lbs and that's if you have a 4x2 with the 142" wheelbase, an 8' bed, and a 4.30 axle ratio. So the only way you'll be able to tow a trailer with a 17K GVWR safely is if it's empty and you have a pickup that matches the above specs. If you have the 3.73 axle ratio I wouldn't go over a trailer with a 12K GVWR, and for a 4.30 axle ratio that would range from 14.5K - 15.5K. For...

  • Underbed 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2019 Ford F-350 Short Bed No OEM Pucks
    All of the underbed kits for your 2019 Ford F-350 (short bed) are about the same when it comes to pricing so I recommend using the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP87FR for a few reasons; the first reason is that this is the exact same as the OEM puck system so when it comes time to change your tow vehicle you can market your pickup as such, and then the second reason is that with this underbed system you have a LOT more options when it comes to 5th wheel hitches. The other...

  • Availability of OEM Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for 2021 Ford F-250 that Was Not Equipped from Factory
    Yes we have the Reese Elite fifth wheel rail kit part # RP87FR that fits your 2021 Ford F-250 which is essentially identical to the OEM rail kit your truck could have came with since Reese actually makes the OEM rail kits for Ford. Then you could use the Elite Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30142 or the B and W for Ford OEM Rail kits # BWRVK3300.

  • Compatible Puck System for 2020 F-350 Without OEM Prep Package
    Yes! The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP87FR will fit with your Pullrite adapter. What the Reese rails do is essentially give you the Ford puck mounting system. If you used your adapter with the OEM puck system on your old truck, it will be the same experience with the Reese system on your new one. If you don't already have one, you'll need a wiring harness like the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Connector for Aluminum Beds # C57008.

  • Can Curt Q16 Hitch be Converted to Underbed Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350 with Reese Elite Rails
    The Reese Elite Under Bed rail kit part # RP87FR is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ford F-350 so it can work with a Curt Q16 if you use the leg kit part # C16017 to give you an underbed version of the hitch you have now.

  • What Hitches Will Fit Reese Elite Underbed Rail Kits
    The Reese Underbed Elite rail kits like the part # RP87FR are the exact same as the Ford OEM rail kits so any of the hitches designed for the Ford rail kits will fit well. I really like the B and W Companion hitches like the part # BWRVK3300 that fits directly to this rail kit. Companion hitches are widely considered to be the best hitches around as they are made well here in the US, are very reliable, and also are very easy to use and quiet.

  • How Difficult Is Installation of Reese RP87FR Elite Under Bed Rail Kit on 2017 Ford F-250
    The Reese Elite Series under bed puck system, part # RP87FR is compatible with your 2017 Ford F250. The puck spacing is identical to hat of the Ford OEM system, so you'd be able to use any puck mounted hitch designed for the Ford OEM tow/prep package puck system. As you can see by clicking the provided instruction link, the bed will indeed need to be removed temporarily for the installation of the rail kit. Also, if the inner brackets shown in figure # 4 aren't welded to the truck frame,...

It's the same as the prep package that would have come from the factory. It will then work great with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch part # DM8550024 which is an auto-slide hitch and drops right into the pucks. It's only offered in 13K, 18K and 20K part # DM8550038. Please note, there are only two auto-slide hitches on...

  • Reese Rail Kit Recommendation thats Same As Ford Factory Rail Kit in 2019 Ford F-250
    So Reese is who makes the factory Ford fifth wheel rail kits so that means that the Ford Elite Underbed rail kit part # RP87FR would be what you'd want. This will give you the same exact hitch as what the Ford rail kit offers at a better price. To add the gooseneck hitch you'd then want the part # RP30845. This rail kit will fit any of the fifth wheel hitches designed to fit the Ford factory rail kit but the one we recommend the highest is the B and W Companion Hitch for Ford Rail Kits...

  • Is Reese Elite Rail Kit RP87FR Same As Ford Factory Under Bed Fifth Wheel Rail Kit
    Yes, since Reese makes the under bed OEM rail kits for Ford the Elite Rail kit part # RP87FR is the same thing as the rail kit that Ford offers with the trucks new. The hitch I recommend for this rail kit is the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3300 for if you have a long bed or the part # BWRVK3370 for if you have a short bed since this gives you a slider hitch for additional clearance. This will give you the best ride quality of all of the hitches available since these USA made hitches...

  • Can Underbed Pucks Be Added to a 2019 Ford F-250

The best 5th wheel hitch to then use with these pucks is the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package part # BWRVK3300, part # BWRVK3305, or part # BWRVK3370.

    The Reese underbed rail kit that fits your 2019 Ford F-350 long bed part # RP87FR comes with everything needed to install in your truck and basically gives you an OEM style rail kit since Reese is who makes the OEM rail kits. No other parts would be needed.

  • Will a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Hitch Work With The Reese Elite Under-Bed Kit On An 2017 F-250
    In order to use a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Hitch like part # RP30928 with the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit part # RP87FR on your 2017 Ford F-250 you will need an adapter, the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter part # RP30156. That said, a better option for you would be to purchase a 5th wheel hitch that already fits into the pucks without any adapters need. I recommend the Reese M5 Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30922.

This is actually the exact same kit that would have come equipped with the truck from the factory if it had the prep package.

    The only version of the Reese/Ford underbed rail kit we offer for your 2020 Ford F-250 that does not have the OEM rail kit is the part # RP87FR which would allow you to use a hitch like the Reese M5 part # RP30922. At this time we do not have a version with just the fifth wheel pucks. Also the gooseneck hole of the # RP87FR is welded to the rest of the assembly so it would not be able to be unbolted and left off.
