Recommended Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for a 2005 Toyota Tundra w/ a 6 Foot Bed


I need a Fifth Wheel Rails and Mounting kit That will fit a 2005 Toyota Tundra- which kit do I need to purchase?


Expert Reply:

To add a set of 5th wheel rails to your 2005 Toyota Tundra you will need the Demco Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Universal Install Kit item # DM8552009-71. This kit is confirmed to fit the 6' bed model of the 2005 Tundra.

This is a universal installation kit so there will be some drilling required. There are no custom fit options for the Tundra's with a 6' bed. The mounting brackets install beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for the above-bed base rails. These rails are compatible with B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches.

Since your truck has a shorter bed you will either need to use a rotating pin box or a sliding hitch. If you end up using a sliding hitch then I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider item # BWRVK3270. The Patriot Slider has an 18,000 lbs capacity and will give you 12" of travel.
