Recommended Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket/Rail Install Kit for 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 LD


Looking for the correct custom brackets to mount a Reese #30051. I cannot seem to find the specific one that fits. Thanks.

I'd be happy to assist with that.

Because the Reese # RP30051 is compatible with industry standard bed rails, you're not limited to choosing a Reese rail/bracket kit. Assuming your truck has the steel bed, you can choose the less expensive Curt # C16418-204 which would work perfectly for you.

However, if your truck has the composite (A/K/A plastic) bed, you'll need to use the Reese # RP58208-58
bracket/rail kit instead.

If you'd like to install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck bed, you could do so using part # 50-97-410.

I've linked to installation instructions and videos for the Curt bracket/rail kit and for the trailer connector I recommended above.
