Curt Fifth Wheel C16546 Review

Today we're going to review part number 16546. This is the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, with the Curt R24 slider. It's a dual jaw design with a 24,000 pound weight capacity. For demonstration purposes I do have it mounted on some base rails and the mounting bracket to give you an idea what it looks like in the vehicle. But the base rails and the mounting bracket are sold separately. This is a two jaw locking system right here. It provides a 360 degree jaw to king pin contact. It will give you less rattle, more security then the slide bar models. On the very back here, I'm going to show you in a minute when I turn it around here, it has a three point color-coded indicator system.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16545-16017 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16545-16017. This is the CURT Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Ford towing prep package. It is a dual jaw design hitch. It has a 24,000 pound weight capacity. This part number is a custom fit part number. It's designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Now this hitch has the 2-jaw locking system which will provide a 360-degree jaw-to-kingpin contact.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16515-16017 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16515-16017. This is the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Ford Towing Prep Package. It is a slide bar jaw design; has a 16,000-lb weight capacity. This is a custom fit part number. This is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford super duty trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. This hitch is an auto-locking, slide-bar jaw mechanism, helps provide superior security. Right back here you'll see the spring loaded; it's a rear steel tension bar.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16520-16017 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16520-16017. This is the CURT Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Ford OEM Legs. This is a dual-jaw design hitch with a 16,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty Trucks that have the factory-installed towing prep package. These legs would drop right in to the factory package.


Curt Fifth Wheel 16516 Review

Today we're going to review part number 16516. This is the Curt E16 fifth wheel trailer hitch on the Curt R16 roller. This is a slide bar jar design hitch and has a 16,000 pound weight capacity. For demonstration purposes I do have the slider and the hitch head mounted on some base rails with the mounting brackets just to show you how it looks installed in a vehicle. The rails and the mounting brackets are sold separately on our web site. This is an auto locking slide bar jaw mechanism right here. Provides superior security. Has the rear steel tension bar right here that works with the slide bar to clamp around the king pin.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16521 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16521. This is the Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch on the Curt R16 Slider. This hitch is a dual jaw design. Has a 16,000 lb weight capacity. For demonstration purposes I do already have this mounted on the base rails and the mounting brackets just to give you an idea what this would be like installed in your truck bed. The base rails and the brackets would be sold separately.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16536 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16536. This is the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Curt R20 Slider. This is a Dual Jaw design hitch and has a 20,000 lbs weight capacity. Now, for demonstration purposes, I have this mounted on some base rails just to give you an idea of how this would install on your truck bed. Now, this is a 2-Jaw locking system right up there which will provide 360-degrees jaw-to-king-pin contact. That will give you less rattle, more security than some of the slide-bar models. The head on this is a unique spherical axial bearing which allows easy pivoting of the hitch head.


Reese Fifth Wheel RP30160 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30160. This is the Reese 20,000 pound fifth wheel hitch for the Ram factory towing prep package. This is a custom fit part number. This is designed to fit the Dodge Ram and the Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks with either the 6' bed or the 8' bed, and has the factory rail kit starting in 2013. Now what I would recommend is to go onto the product page for this part number on our website and at the bottom of the page it would list the exact years and model vehicles that this will fit on. Now this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. Works with the factory-installed fifth wheel towing prep package from Ram.

Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers

  • How to Upgrade from a 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch to a 20k Hitch
  • Yes, as long as you have a set of industry standard rails in the bed of your truck (see pic for more info), all you would need to upgrade to a 20k plus would be to replace your current hitch with one like the Reese 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30033 that you referenced. You will want to check the owners manual for your truck to be sure that your vehicle is capable of towing a trailer that weighs what you are planning to tow.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 3500 Dually Long Bed w/ Factory Tow Prep Package
  • The Reese # RP30054 hitch you mentioned is intended to be bolted directly to the frame of a cab and chassis truck, so it wouldn't be a good choice for your Ram 3500 with the OEM tow prep kit. Curt and B&W both offer hitches that will drop right into the existing factory pucks in your truck bed. The Curt # C16545-16021 has a 24,000 lb capacity, while the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers a 25,000 lb capacity. Either hitch would be an excellent choice for you, but I'd give the B&W product a slight...

  • Troubleshooting Fifth Wheel Trailer Sway When Truck Has New Tires
  • Putting larger tires on your truck may have raised the nose of your trailer which means your trailer is no longer sitting level and this certainly can cause the sway you are experiencing. To make sure your fifth wheel is level park the truck and trailer on level ground. Use the landing gear on the fifth wheel to make it level, then measure from the ground to the bottom of the pin box skid plate, not the king pin, and record the measurement. Next measure from the ground to the top...

  • There are a few things that you will want to take into consideration when determine the towing capacity of your 2014 Dodge 2500 Ram Mega Cab. First, you will need to find the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of your Ram. This may be located on a spec label on the inside of your door or in your owners manual if you have one. A local Dodge dealer can also find this rating with the VIN. Once you have your GCWR, you simply subtract the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of your Ram, which...

  • 16K B&W Patriot Hitch and Custom Rail Kit Recommendation for 2013 GMC Sierra Crew Cab Short Box
  • I recommend going with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit, # RP56007-53, for your 2013 GMC Sierra Crew Cab Short Box. These custom outboard designed brackets reduce the amount of drilling during installation, ensures simple access to the mounting points, and would allow you to use the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3200, that you are interested in. Although trailer manufacturers have changed some of their designs to accommodate the short...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 Short Box Super Crew Cab
  • There are two basic options for 5th wheel towing in short box trucks like the 2015 Ford F-350 Super Crew Cab you're considering. One option is a sliding 5th wheel hitch like the 20K-rated Reese R20 # RP30870 and the other is a special replacement trailer pin box called a Sidewinder. The Reese # RP30870 installs in industry-standard base rails such as those included with the Reese custom bracket 5th wheel installation kit # RP50073-58. This kit will save you considerable installation...

  • Towing Fifth Wheels and Gooseneck Trailers with Ford F250 with 6 Foot 8 Inch Bed
  • Good truck choice! A 6-3/4 foot bed should work just fine for a gooseneck, but for a fifth wheel, you won't have enough clearance between the trailer loft and the rear of the cab. During turns, you could possibly have the trailer corner collide with the rear of the cab. Which would be bad. Since you don't have the truck yet, I'd go with an 8 foot bed so you can avoid clearance issues all together. There are two ways you can gain enough clearance. First, you can use a sliding fifth wheel...

  • Do the Cross Member Bolts of the Curt E16 Hitch Get Tightened to the Legs
  • I found the section under the installation instructions for the Curt E16 Hitch part # C16115 that you are referring to and it does say to only finger tighten the bolts that hold the crossmember to the legs of the hitch. So I called up my tech contact at Curt and he informed me that you will need to torque those bolts down and that the instructions are somewhat misleading since it only goes as far as finger tightening those bolts.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 2500 W/ Factory Prep and Sidewinder Equipped 5th Wheel
  • If your 5th wheel has the Sidewinder, you don't need a sliding hitch. You can use a stationary hitch, and it'll work just fine, as the Sidewinder will give you all the clearance you need. If you DO for some reason decide to use a sliding hitch, it MUST be left slid all the way forward. Sliding the hitch rearward will concentrate the pin weight behind the rear axle, which can create a dangerous situation by lightening the load on the front axle which would lead to poor steering and braking...

  • Hitch Recommendations for 2014 Chevy Silverado Towing 7K Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • The lowest-rated fifth wheel hitches we offer would have a 15K capacity. When it comes to towing, having excess capacity is never, ever a bad thing. If you decide to upgrade to a heavier fifth wheel within the next few years, you'll still be in good shape as long as the loaded and ready to tow weight of the fifth wheel doesn't exceed the capacity of the hitch. If you click the provided link, you can see the available 5th wheel hitches and installation kits for your truck. The 15K sliding...

  • Hitch Options On Flatbed Trailer For Gooseneck Trailer
  • In order to haul a 48 foot gooseneck trailer you will need a gooseneck hitch installed in either of the vehicles you mentioned. We do not offer a gooseneck option for flatbed trucks as it will require a custom hitch and installation to accommodate the gooseneck. You could use an adapter like part # 2085205 with the gooseneck on your trailer to work with a fifth-wheel hitch installed on the truck. The hitch I recommend is the Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # RP30054....

  • Can B and W Companion Hitches be Used with Cushioned Pin Boxes

  • Best Underbed Gooseneck/Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 GMC Sierra
  • That's an easy one, the best 5th wheel hitch/gooseneck hitch available for your 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 short bed would be the B and W Companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W. The rail kit for this hitch (that is underbed) that also doubles as a gooseneck hitch is the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1067-5W. This would be a perfect setup for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Under-Bed 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Mounts for 2015 Ford F250 Long Bed
  • I'm not sure what Ford charges for their prep package, but we certainly offer the aftermarket version. In my experience, aftermarket parts are usually much less expensive than their OEM counterparts. Starting with the rail kit that bolts to your frame and provides the pucks, you'd need part # RP30126. If you add part # RP30138, you'd be able to tow gooseneck trailers, as well. For a fifth wheel hitch, Reese offers an 18K and a 25K hitch that would fit directly into the pucks, for the...

  • Fifth Wheel Recommendation For 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Prep Package
  • For your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 6 ft bed, we offer several sliding hitches that will work well for you. These hitches range in price due to the features they have. You said you have the factory prep package. Since prep packages vary for different manufacturers, there are a couple of ways we can address this. First, I will give you options for a system with the in-bed puck system. If your Ram has the factory puck system installed, you have a couple of options. You can install a stationary...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F250 Towing Trailer with Reese Revolution
  • We have exactly what you need. I would recommend an under bed rail system for your 2013 f250 super duty 6 3/4 foot bed so that you will have complete truck bed access when the hitch isn't being used in your truck. For that you would want the Reese Elite Underbed Rail Kit part # RP30126. Since you have a Reese Revolution pin box on your trailer you won't need a slider hitch to make 90 degree turns. So you would want a stationary hitch instead. For that you would want the part # RP30142...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 1500 with Short Bed
  • There are fifth wheel options for your 2014 Ram 1500, but if it has the Eco-Diesel engine there are currently no install kits that would fit the Eco-Diesel vehicles. Since you have a 6 foot short bed you would want a slider hitch like # RP30051 to allow you to make sharp turns without cab clearance issues. For a rail kit you would want a custom install kit as they will minimize drilling and cut install time in half. For that you would want the part # RP50083-58. I attached a couple...

  • Under-Bed Rails And Adapter For Fifth Wheel Hitch On 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
  • We do offer an under bed rail and installation kit for your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. The under-bed system, part # RP30868 is designed to work with the Reese Elite Series and Signature Series 5th-wheel and gooseneck trailer hitches. For the under-bed system to be able to work with standard fifth wheel hitches, the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, part # RP30156 needs to be used.
