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

Yes, if you:

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

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 don't want to have to take out the hitch to close it
  • Prefer getting the most overbuilt hitch available, even if it's more 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.

Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - 20,000 lbs - RP30928

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (289 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty 5th-wheel hitch has a 1-piece, wraparound jaw and easy-to-see lock indicator for maximum safety and security. Fully articulating head with large landing area and kingpin target make hookup a snap.

by:

Tried to install this on a 2001 Chevy Silverado 3500, dual rear wheel, long bed, 4x4, diesel engine truck. The clamp style mounting simply does not work. The ONLY way I can see this working is by drilling added holes in the frame of the truck at the front end of the side plates. This is because of a bend in the frame at the clamp location. Also at this location the frame is boxed in and any bolt holes will be hidden. Bolts would have to fished in with bolt wires.


Comments
I see that you are stuck on some parts of this installation. I have gotten in contact with one of our technicians and they had mentioned that you should be able to find what you need in the instructions on page 5. https:www.reeseprod.comproduct-assetsinstallN30926.pdf

Great quality, worked perfect and easy to use. I was so happy with it that I transferred it to my new vehicle. I would recommend this to a friend.




by:

I love it. It’s very easy for me to setup. The only issue i had was rge breakout away cable snapped in have and i was not able to find a replacement. I had a friend who was able to make me another one.




by:

I had to return this hitch as it was unusable due to manufacturing defects. etrailer honored the return and refunded me completely.




by:

Just received yesterday, will be having it installed on Monday and will be pulling my new camper home next Saturday. Will update afterwards with pics




by:

Great product, shipped in really good time, etrailer was excellent in communication, only small problem was package was damaged in transit, and my item had some pretty bad scratches on it. But when I notified etrailer of this they gave me a choice of shipping it back in exchange for a new one or giving me a nice credit back if I could live with the scratches. I choose the latter and I thought it was great that they gave me the choice.




by:

Easy install, visual confirmation pin is locked into 5th Wheel, and no more chucking when pulling trailer.




by:

Great hitch. Everything showed up undamaged easy to setup




by:

So far it has worked flawlessly,,,

I've only just got it installed and as of yet have not tested it under load. Hope to pick-up and tow my RV back home this weekend. I will update My review when I return.

Got expert advice from David B Everything arrived and put on today. Worked beautifully

Exactly what I ordered with a perfect fit. [Retailer] wanted to charge me $600 more.

2 of the 3 boxes arived the day before it was scheduled to arrive. The 3rd box arrived the next day as scheduled. The qr code on the head did not work, it took me to a 404 error page on the Reese site.

  • Can 20k M5 Series Fifth Wheel Hitch Replace 16k Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Yes it really is that easy! You can take a M5 Series 20k hitch like the # RP30928 for a fixed hitch and install it right into the same rails as what your 16k Reese fit. Both of these hitch setup fit the same industry standard fifth wheel rails.

  • Picking Out Truck to Tow Trailer that Weighs 5,000 lbs
    A 5,000 lb trailer could pretty easily be towed by modern 1/2 ton trucks like F-150s, Ram 1500's, or Chevy Silverado 1500/GMC Sierra 1500s. The EcoBoost F-150s are now coming with towing capacities basically double what you'd need. Going with a heavier duty truck like a 3/4 or 1 ton truck certainly wouldn't be a bad thing but it might be a bit overkill. Really just depends on your budget and what all the truck would be used for.

  • Towing Capacity of 2006 Ford F-150 4x2 Regular Cab 4.6L V8, 3.55 Axle Ratio and 144-inch Wheelbase
    Your trailer's information sticker shows a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 9990-lbs. This is the very most that this trailer can weigh when it is loaded. The Ford online towing guide does show that a 2006 F-150 4x2 regular cab with 4.6L V8, 3.55 axle ratio and 144-inch wheelbase can tow a conventional trailer up to a maximum of 6700-lbs, just as you said. So your truck can tow this trailer provided the weight of the trailer and all of its contents weigh less than 6700 pounds.

  • Is a Longer or Shorter Wheelbase Better for Towing
    I don't have any specific wheelbase measurements for you that is best but I can confirm that the longer wheelbase the truck has, the more stable the truck will be while towing. As a general rule, the vehicle's wheelbase should be at least half of the distance from the center of the trailer's rearmost axle to the center of the coupler. However, this is more of a conservative figure I will admit. The other thing to make note of when pulling a 5th wheel trailer is that you really want to have...

    The M5 is not known for chucking but I did speak to my contact at Reese and he had a few things to try/check. His response is below as well as the pages from the manual for the M5 # RP30928 that he attached as well: This hitch is not known for chucking. I can’t says there’s a hitch out there that doesn’t have some movement here or there but this hitch would have min. movement compared to others offered. This scenario where the customer hears clunking when leaving a stop is not uncommon...

  • How to tell the M5 Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch is Fully Locked.
    The M5 Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30928 has a very simple lock system. There is a groove in the handle that allows the latch mechanism to close then be secured this can be seen in the video I attached for you. The latch mechanism will not close if the jaw is not locked. It appears that the lock is in place but I can't really see the handle. With what you're saying it doesn't sound defective but if you had everything connected per the instructions (attached below) I would use...

  • Troubleshooting Sway When Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
    First suggestion would be to stop towing the trailer till you figure out how to fix the sway issue as sway can sometimes flip vehicles/trailers. Sway with fifth wheel trailers is typically not very common when compared to bumper pull towing so when it is happening it's almost always due to suspension problems on the trailer. That would be the first thing I would check. Also make sure you aren't exceeding the towing capacity of your truck. If you are overloading the truck beyond what it...

  • What is 5th Wheel Towing Capacity for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 Diesel
    You didn't mention what year truck you have, but if you have a 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 diesel you have almost double the towing capacity needed for a 10,000 lb trailer so you'd be fine. The max towing capacity a 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 can have is 23,000 lbs.

  • Can Short Bed Truck Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer with Turning Point Pin Box with Fixed Hitch
    Since your trailer has the Turning Point pin box you do not need to use a slider hitch. A fixed hitch would work just fine like the Reese hitch part # RP30928 that you referenced which I think would work really well for you. The pivoting pin boxes are much better than using a slider hitch so I would recommend sticking with that if at all possible.

  • Availability of Cushioned Fifth Wheel Hitch
    We do have hitches that have cushioning built into the heads to provide a smoother ride quality like the Reese M5 part # RP30928 but what really makes the difference for a smooth towing experience is a tight jaw design like this hitch has. When the jaws of the hitch are really tight to the king pin the ride quality is the smoothest. This is a bigger factor than cushioning when in comes to overall ride quality.

  • Can 5th Wheel Hitch Parts Wear Down and Affect Ride Quality
    I've never heard of a 5th wheel hitch using fans, but it is possible for parts on a 5th wheel hitch to wear out over time and need to be replaced just like other equipment on your RV (suspension parts, awning, vent/AC just to name a few). Any parts that wear down can and will affect the performance of the hitch so it's possible that is why you have some chucking. Pretty much every 5th wheel hitch should have replacement parts available (even new ones like the Reese M5 # RP30928) because...

  • Can Reese 15k Fifth Wheel Hitch Tow a Trailer that Weighs 16,300 lbs
    You will definitely need a higher rated fifth wheel hitch than what you have now like with the Reese Select Plus part # RP30928 that you referenced which has a 20k capacity as a 15k rated hitch will not safely tow a trailer that weighs 16,300 lbs. Your truck might have the capacity as well but since I don't know it's year and options I don't have a way to determine it's towing capacity.

  • Benefits of Fifth Wheel Hitch with 4 Way Pivoting Head vs. 2 Way Head
    The answer to your question will depend on what kind of surfaces your tow vehicle will be parked on when you hitch/unhitch the trailer. If you are going to find yourself pretty consistently on level, even pavement, then a fifth wheel hitch whose head pivots forward and back will work fine for you. On the other hand, if you will hitch and unhitch on uneven ground on a regular basis, you will thank yourself for going with a hitch that has the 4 way pivoting head, like the Reese 5th Wheel...

  • Possible Causes For 5th Wheel Trailer Chucking and Movement During Starts and Stops
    It sounds like there is one of two possible issues or a combination of issues. First, make sure that you are not high hitched. When connecting the king pin to the hitch, first make sure the head of the hitch is tilted towards the trailer. Then, make sure the bottom of the pin box (not the kingpin) on the trailer is 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the hitch skid plate. The other issue could be that if your king pin of your PS30119 is worn significantly enough, there will be too much play and the...

  • Will a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Husky Above the Bed Rails
    A Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch like # RP30928, will fit in Curt, Valley/Husky, Draw-Tite, Hidden-Hitch and Reese base rails, so there should not be a fit issue. To make sure, there are some measurements you can take of the rails themselves to make sure the 2 are compatible. First, each rail will have 3 sets of slots on it where the hitch mounts. The outside set of slots is 29 inches apart on center. The middle set is about 20-1/2 inches apart on center. The inside set is 10 inches apart...

  • Will a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit In Place of a Reese 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    The Reese 20K hitch, # RP30928, will fit in the same rails and you will not need to upgrade them for the heavier trailer you plan to tow. The rails in this case have the same weight carrying capacity as your truck. Make sure that you stay within the towing capacities of your truck. The Reese 20K hitch has a gross trailer weight capacity of 20,000 pounds and a pin weight capacity of 5,000 pounds.

  • What are the Pin Hole Dimensions on the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928
    The mounting pin holes on the Reese Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30928, measure front to back 21-15/16 inches center to center and side to side 20-5/8 inches center to center. This hitch is designed to fit all standard base rails. If you determine that this hitch will not fit your rails, then you will want to choose a hitch based on the brand of your base rails. If you can tell me the manufacturer of your rails, then I can make a hitch recommendation for you.

Next measure from the ground to the top of the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch and record it.

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
    To answer the last question first the key is to check the towing capacity of each truck you are interested in and make sure they are rated for the weight of the trailer when it is loaded and ready to tow. A 1 ton of any make should have no trouble towing the average 5th wheel trailer but just check the towing capacities to be certain. I do recommend a diesel since they are great for towing and last a long time, and a truck with an Allison transmission which is a good towing tranny. Changing...

As you are backing the truck toward the fifth wheel, make sure that the bottom plate of the fifth wheel pin box is about 1/2 to 1 inch LOWER than the skid plate of the fifth wheel hitch. As you ease the hitch back into the king pin, the skid plate will actually...
