Rail Placement for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed


After checking what I need for my 2012 2500HD Silverado w/6-1/2 bed, pretty sure I will only need RP50066 and RP50066F items. I already have the Pro Series 15000 lbs. Hitch and Bed Rails. Let me know what the center-to-center distance is of the 2 bed rails to make sure my hitch fits after installing the above kit. My hitch is not a slider, and I know my angle is limited with the truck and camper.

If you have Reese Universal Base Rails # RP58058, then you will need parts # RP50066 and # RP58430 to complete the installation kit.

When using the custom fit installation kit # RP50066-58 the measurement from the rear edge of the truck bed to the rear edge of the back rail will be 24-5/8 inches. You will then use the hitch for the placement of the front rail. The center line of the hitch will be centered over the rear axle.

I have included a link to the installation instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you.
