Review of Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP50142-58


Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rail Lean installation kit for the fifth wheel trailer hitches. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the Dodge Ram 1500 Truck starting in the year 2009. Now on a custom fit part I always like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this would work for your application. Now this kit includes the custom brackets, the rails, and all the installation hardware. Now the custom brackets, which are these parts here, are designed to mount beneath your truck bed and they do provide the attachment appliance for all these fifth wheel layers. The brackets themselves are vehicle specific.

They mount to existing holes in your trailer frame and because of that it will minimize the drilling and measuring when installing these so it does cut your installation time in half when compared to the universal bracket systems. Now the base rails themselves, which are attached to these brackets, they will sit in the truck bed and they allow the installation of the fifth wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. Compatible hitches that will fit are the curt, the draw type, the hidden hitch, the reese, the valley, and the husky. One note I do want to let you know is that they will not fit the Reese Elite series or the Valley UBS hitches. The finish on all these parts is a nice black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion and as I mentioned it comes with the installation hardware for the rails, installation hardware for the brackets, and a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install all this. That should do it for the review on the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and installation kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches..
