Mounting Demco Recon 5th Wheel Hitch on 2018 Ram 2500  


I have a Demco Recon Fifth wheel hitch model # 6180, serial # h8310280. I took this hitch out of my old truck when I traded it in. I have a 2018 ram 2500 4x4 now and I want to make sure I purchase the proper bed rail kits and mounting brackets. can you provide me with suggestions? thanks for your help.

We definitely have the parts needed to mount your existing Demco Recon 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch (our part # DM8550043) in the bed of your new 2018 Ram 2500.

If your Ram isn't equipped with the factory prep package (those pucks in the bed designed for mounting certain 5th wheel hitches) then I recommend the Demco Above-Bed Base Rail and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552025-71. This kit includes custom brackets that will use existing holes in your Ram's frame rails so you don't have to drill into them. The industry-standard, above-bed base rails will be perfectly compatible with your Recon Hitch.

Now if you DO have the factory prep package then all you will need is the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. This will drop right into the factory pucks to provide the needed industry-standard rails for your Recon.

I have attached a couple install videos on these products that you can check out as well.
