Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a pin box that doesn't extend down very far and need a hitch that sits almost even with your bed rails
  • 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
  • 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

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
  • Prefer the most overbuilt option available, even if it's more hitch than you really need

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.

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.

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

I just received the 3 boxes and will assemble it this weekend. I should have more to comment afterwards.

Handles my 2017 43’ 5th wheel with no issues. Easy to connect to and disconnect from my camper




by:

Great customer service. Fast shipping! Couldn't be happier. Thank you Ed for helping me. etrailer is the only place I'll shop from now on. Thanks again.




by:

It's a little heavy but manageable for the average fellers. I pieced it together in the bed of my truck as it will be a permanent fixture and as the installation brochure pointed out. They did paint the threaded holes witch could make installation of bolts a little time consuming but with my 1/2" impact it was a breeze, also was the 220 fps of torque with a 4" extension and a torque wrench rental from auto zone witch is free.The castle nuts with the cutter pins were set right but one, removed the one as they did provide 4 extra. Took me about 45 minutes to assemble. Be sure to grease top plate so that thier is no bind. Very happy as this is my very first 5th wheel hitch install and hooks with ease and the green/red indicator is great,and tows nice.




by:

Hitch was fairly easy to put together. Had to leave bolts loose until I had it in the puck system. Was hard to get out until I used it a few times. Pulling a 40 foot 5th wheel that weights 12000 lbs. empty. Rubber handle grip was the only bad thing. Deteriated and fell apart. Still looking for a replacement.

I am very happy with the ordering process- Pam made sure I got what I need.
The only negative thing is the packaging- the two leg parts hit each other inside the box and the paint is gone. That is an issue on Reese not etrailer.


Comments
Customer Service will reach out to you. It is important to cover any bare metal with anti-corrosive paint to prevent premature rust. Here are more tips in this help article:

The order arrived ahead of time! It was easy to put together and with the instructional pages included everything went well. It is as advertised, the company was wonderful to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone!




by:

I had to order my truck without the factory hitch and puck system because of a shortage at Ford and the factory kit is made by Reese. So I ordered it from etrailer and when the truck arrives I’ll have the dealership install the puck part. Since I have the parts it’s just 4.5 hours labor and done.I can put the hitch itself together and I’ll be ready to go. I used to drive commercial truck and trailer and I like the fact that I don’t have to unlock it to hitch up the fifth wheel. It’s all ways ready to lock in.

Easy to assemble! Will update my review after We take a trip




by:

This will be Part 1 of a 2 part review. Part 1 will cover unboxing, assembly and installation. So the hitch arrived yesterday. 3 undamaged boxes (Good). Unboxing and parts inventory revealed a cracked handle grip on the head. Contacted Etrailer CS... no parts available until 9/21. it must be a common problem with this hitch since the CS rep knew exactly what my problem was. This won't prevent use but it's a unnecessary headache. Now THE REAL FUN begins!
Attempting to thread the 4 bolts that attach the legs to the center section. THREADS WERE POWDER COATED. Spent the rest of the afternoon gradually tightening and untightening the bolts to clear the threads of coating. tedious and unnecessary process tighten the bolt a little... back it out... blow out the debris... drop of oil and repeat. Eventually broke out my pneumatic impact wrench. Finally got the threads cleared.
It weighs quite a bit and I highly recommend you have a friend. I was alone and ended up setting the center section on a pair of jack stands at the approximate desired height (BTW had to call Etrailer tech support to get the height adjusting starting and ending dimensions since the supplied directions only tell you that there is 4 inches of vertical adjustment not what they are and what hole matches what dimension. Etrailer was great throughout this ordeal), just to get the bolts started and snugged (not torqued yet). Speaking of torque... 220 ft/lbs YIKES!!! My wrench only goes up to 150. I took the hitch down to my local garage and a very kind mechanic torqued to the required 220 ft/lbs. Gave him a $20 for his trouble. Now to setting it in the OEM pucks and adjusting the tension on the leg locks. Unit ships with cotter pins installed in the castle nuts. THEY WERE JAMMED IN TIGHT AND ALREADY BENT AND WOULDN'T SIMPLY PULL OUT ONCE STRAIGHTENED. Had to cut them off with a dremel. Fortunately Reese supplies you with 4 new ones. So after 2 days the legs and the center section are assembled and installed according to the specs. Later on day 2... time to install the head. Apparently the hitch had a common problem with the "Ready to Tow" indicator falling off. There was a "field fix" kit included with the head. It consisted of a screw and washer... it was a real pain to install... since you need three hands to stabilize the part and drive the screw... seems they could have just done that in the manufacturing process. another unnecessary headache.
Finally... after 2 full days it's all lubricated, assembled and installed in the truck.
Next step is testing the hitching and unhitching process and its first trip, planning 700 mile trip at the end of August...That will be Part 2.
Wish I could give it a higher rating on assembly, installation but it performs poorly in that aspect. My previous CURT 16k hitch went together in 30 min with no problems whatsoever. I put 3,000 miles on that Curt before I got a bigger and heavier rig, thus the upgrade to 20k. Hoping the hitching, towing and unhitching experience with this Reese allows me to upgrade my overall rating. Stay tuned.

Fast shipping, excellent quality of workmanship. Very slight chucking with our 2019 fifth wheel toy hauler. The green indicator for lockup works flawlessly and will let you know by staying partial red if not fully engaged.




by:
2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Very good, solid hitch. Fits very well. Not rattly. Recommend this hitch to anyone that cares about quality.




by:

Very nice 5th will hitch love it




by:

Really pleased with the quality and effortless use of the product.




by:

Awsome purchase! It was easy enough to put together, hooks up very easily to a 37ft camper & small enough that it can stay in the truck at all times & fits under the bed cover. Would definitely recommend this product. The only issue we had was the blue handle cover was broken when we received but etrailer sent us a new one w/ no problem.




by:

The 5th wheel trailer doesn't easily detach from the hitch. It takes a lot of work to get it to unhook with the lever. Definitely a 2 person job to unhook.




by:

Great hitch. So easy to release when un hooking compared to other brand hitches I have owned in the past. Hitching up is even easier. Quiet while traveling.

Excellent hitch!




by:
2022 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Quick shipping. Nicely packaged, arrived without damage.
Easy to assemble, took less than an hour. I did not have any problem getting the bolts in like some of the other reviews talked about.
Have not towed with it it yet, so I can't review the actual operation of the hitch.




by:
2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Overall this hitch is excellent. One very minor thing to complain about, the grip on the Handle tour within a few times of using. Also I noticed rust stains running/dripping down from up inside the head. I will investigate this further to see exactly what is rusting.


Comments
John, thanks for the review. The manufacturer does offer a limited lifetime warranty for these products as long as you have been maintaining your hitch. You can view the maintenance schedule in the instructions on page 3.

I had to hover between 4 and 5 stars. Great personal and very knowledgeable. Delivered on time. Heavy duty boxes made sure everything was well stabilized. Unboxed and all the parts were all there. Me and my friend Rick started assembly. When putting the bolts into the legs,the bolts encountered paint in the bolt holes and became very difficult to tighten. Didn't have a tap, big enough to chase the threads, so we muscled them in but my hand bore the brunt if it.




by:

When we got this hitch and tried to put it together, all the thread holes were powder coated and we couldn’t assemble the hitch. We contacted etrailer, explained the issue. We were sent new pieces to replace the ones that wouldn’t work. When they arrived, they too had powder coating in all the holes and weren’t able to be used. So we sent ALL of the Reece 5th wheel hitch and extra pieces back and ordered a B&W hitch and love it! We’ve never had an issue with it!! We won’t be purchasing a Reece again.




by:

exactly the hitch i ordered. arrived at my house very very fast. Used the hitch approximately 4 days after it arrived. This hitch is very well built and was easy to install. no rattles excellent hitch and amazing excellent service!

Thank you
