What our customers are saying:

I checked around locally for the best price on a Reese 16k 5th wheel hitch with a kwik-slide for my short bed Dodge Ram. I found your website while searching for info. on 5th wheel hitches and was surprised to discover that the identical hitch was $110 cheaper, even with a shipping charge of $94.00.

Curt Fifth Wheel C16545-16020 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the slider for the Ford towing prep package and it has a 24,000 lb weight capacity. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks that have the 6 3/4 ft bed and the factory installed towing prep package on it. Now on a custom fit part I always would recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Now this 5th wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th wheel trailer. Now the part I'm describing here would be the hitch head and the slider that it's on. For demonstration purposes I have it installed on a display stand that has the under-bed rails attached to it that are used in your Ford truck. This gives you an idea of what it would look like installed on your truck bed. The slider right here, this built-in slider, provides the clearance that's required for your short bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16530-16020 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q20 fifth wheel trailer hitch with the slider for the Ford towing prep package and a 20,000 lb weight capacity. Now, this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford F250 and F350 super duty trucks with the six and three quarter foot bed and the factory installed towing prep package. Now, on any custom fit part, we 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 will work for your application. Now, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed, so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. Now, I have it set up here. The hitch head and the slider is what we're describing. What I have done is mounted it onto this display stand. It has the under-bed rails mounted on it just to show you how it installs to the rails and gives you an idea of what this would look like in the bed of your truck. Now, it has a built in slider and the slider will provide the clearance that's required for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds.


Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Replacement Head Unit Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Q16 fifth-wheel hitch. Now this is available in a couple different configurations. If you need just the replacement head that part number is C16520. If you're looking for a long bed truck that has rails, you got part number C16120. Then we've also got it with the slider option here for use in the short bed trucks. This is part number C16521. Now all of our configurations are going to offer a 16,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and a 4,000 pound vertical load limit.

Basically what I'm demonstrating is I'm putting it on this display stand that has the under bed rails that would be on your Ford truck just to show you how it installs, how this would look. This is how it would look in the truck bed of your vehicle. The built-in slider, right down here, this will provide the clearance that's required for your short bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds.

Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are doing the right thing by doing the research first. There is a lot of conflicting information out there so let me break it down for you. Basically, if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, the best trucks are going to be long bed 3/4 or 1 tons like a Ford F-250/F-350, Chevy/GMC 2500/3500, or Ram 2500/3500. Half ton trucks could work but are not nearly as capable as the larger trucks. A long bed for sure is something you will want. Having a long bed means that you will not need...

  • Minimum Truck Bed Length for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer Without Cab and Loft Clearance Issues
  • The minimum bed length for towing a fifth-wheel trailer with a standard fifth-wheel hitch, see link, is 8 feet. A 6-1/2 inch bed like the Silverado Extended Cab you mentioned can be used along with a slider style fifth-wheel hitch, see link, that requires you to remember to get out of the truck and move a handle to slide the hitch rearward when tight parking and campground situations are encountered. Once ready to go back out on the road the hitch will need to be moved forward, requiring...

  • Tips for Choosing the Best Truck to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Starting with the truck series itself, I would go with a 3/4 ton or 1 ton. Ultimately a 1-ton would be better. Between gas and diesel I would choose a diesel if it were me. They are capable of more power and torque than gas motors. The cab style does not matter all that much but the bed size does. You will want to avoid a step side bed and a Dodge model that has a Rambox feature because they cannot have a 5th wheel hitch installed. Long beds are the way to go. A short bed can cause issues...

  • Best Way to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Tow Prep Package
  • In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed. You have several hitch options that will work, but my favorite is the B&W Companion 25K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. This hitch will drop right into the pucks in the truck bed and once it is removed, you will have full access to your bed. Curt also makes fifth wheel hitches for the...

  • What Size Truck is Recommended for Towing a 16,000 Pound 5th Wheel Trailer
  • While there is not a specific truck size required, to maximize towing capacity and minimize wear and tear on the drive train of the truck, I would recommend a full size, 3/4 or 1 ton truck like the Ford F-250 or F350, Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra 2500 or 3500, or Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500 Series. I would recommend a truck with the 8 foot bed if possible, which would eliminate the need for a sliding hitch or a replacement pin box for the fifth wheel. That is not to say that other trucks...

  • How Do I Install Fifth Wheel Rails in The Bed of My Pickup
  • The rails in the bed of your pickup are installed so that the king pin will be just forward of the rear axle when hitched. The mounting location is vehicle specific and if you would like to provide your trucks year, make, model bed length and cab style I would be glad to get instructions to you and make a recommendation for an installation kit for your truck. When mounting a fifth wheel hitch the first measurement you use is the distance from the farthest back part of the bed, tailgate...

  • How to Adjust Height of Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The head portion of the Reese 18K Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch is height adjustable from 14 to 18 inches above the floor of the truck bed. To raise the head, remove the bolts that attach it to the support legs of the hitch, and reattach using the upper holes. For safety, you will need at least 6 inches of clearance between the top of the truck side rails and the bottom of the trailer loft. I have included a link to the installation details, in case you no longer have them.

  • Does Demco Rail Kit Require Drilling Truck Frame When Installing On 2016 Chevrolet Silverado
  • The Demco Hijacker Underbed Rail, part # DM8551002, does not require drilling into the frame when installing. The bracket for the underbed rails are attached by fishing the bolt plates and carriage bolts through an access hole in the frame of your Silverado. The Demco Hijacker Autoslide, part # DM8550037 will work great in your truck with the 6-1/2 ft bed. This fifth wheel features a single, wraparound jaw that gives you less rattle, and the pivoting head helps to limit chucking. This...

  • Differences Between Pro Series and Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitches for Towing 15,800 Lb Trailer
  • The Pro Series Dual-Jaw 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # PS30855, is a standard duty 5th wheel intended for 6-foot and longer truck beds (except flareside and stepside types). It is rated for 16K gross towing weight and 4000-lb tongue weight. The similarly-rated Reese R16 Serrated Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch, part # RP30866, provides several worthwhile upgrades including dual serrated jaws for 360-degree king pin contact, a vibration isolation system for reduced jarring and chucking,...

  • What is a Safe Distance Between Truck Bed Rails and the Underside of a 5th Wheel Camper Trailer Loft
  • Our recommendation for safe towing, no damage to truck bed rails or underside of trailer loft is 6 inches. If you have at least 6 inches of clearance with the trailer level you should be alright in all but the most severe pitch and roll situations, like entering a steep drive or going through a deep dip. If your fifth-wheel hitch does not have enough rise to accommodate 6 inches of clearance, then you might be interested in a hitch that can be adjusted to 18 inches above the truck bed,...

  • Comparing Reese, Pro Series, and CURT 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • Reese is a leader in the towing industry and we sell more Reese hitches than any other brand. It is height adjustable from 14-1/2 to 18 inches. The jaw on the Reese hitch is a double jaw style. This is a safe and secure style. Only the single hook is considered to be better. It has a double pivot head. The next step down is the Pro Series hitch, # PS30855. This is a very economical hitch aimed at the first-time 5th wheel trailer owner. It is height adjustable from 13 inches to 17 inches...

  • Recommended Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ford F250 With Ford Factory Fifth Wheel Prep Package
  • There are two available alternatives. You can use a 5th wheel hitch that's designed to drop right into the pucks, or you can use an adapter that sits in the pucks and provides industry standard bed rails for a standard 5th wheel hitch to attach to. First the puck mounts. If you have the short bed, you'll want to use a sliding hitch, like the Reese Elite Series Slider, part # RP30144 which will drop right into the pucks. The hitch has an 18K capacity. For a long bed truck, use the stationary...

  • Some Guidelines for Choosing Fifth Wheel Hitch for Fifth Wheel Camper with 9000 lb Dry Weight
  • I would recommend choosing a fifth wheel hitch with your future needs in mind. All fifth wheel hitches do the same thing, retain the trailer king pin. The differences between hitches amount to their weight capacities, the features offered or the method of mounting to the truck. The lowest capacity hitch we offer is a 15K, like the Pro Series, part # PS30093 (or RP30094 for a 6-1/2 foot bed truck.) Either hitch would work for you as your trailer is unlikely to weigh more than that when...

The fifth wheel hitch that is designed to fit the hitch prep package on your 2012 Ford F-250 Crew Cab 6-3/4 foot bed is the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider and Wiring Harness, part # RP30144. This is a slider hitch with a gross towing weight capacity of 18,000 lbs. I am including a link to...

  • 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...

  • Is a Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Necessary for Towing 5th Wheel - 2015 Ram 2500 w/ OEM Tow Prep Package
  • For a truck with a 6-1/2 foot bed, there are two ways to gain extra clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the back of the truck cab. You could use a sliding fifth wheel hitch, like the Curt Q24 # C16546 sliding hitch along with the # C16022 adapter. This solution would provide 12 inches of additional clearance, which could be enough for a 90 degree turn if your fifth wheel is no more than 88 inches wide, which is pretty narrow. The better option that would provide a greater...

  • Suitability of Older Trucks for Towing Fifth Wheels
  • Due to the myriad of different equipment packages GM offered, finding the towing capacity of a given vehicle is not as easy as you would think. I did some research on the towing capacities of those mid 80's GM trucks. I found that as a general rule, the K series 4wd trucks has lower capacities than the C series 2wd models. I saw several references stating that a C series could tow up to 12,000 lbs or maybe more, depending how it was equipped. The best way to determine the towing capacity...

  • Tips on Lubricating a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Hitching Up to a Trailer
  • The grease fitting that is on top of the head unit on your Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30084, is used to lubricate the pivot points of the jaws. Using a lithium grease, # L11350, is acceptable. You will also want to lubricate the jaw itself, and the skid plate. For the skid place, if you want you can use a Lube Plate, # RP83001, or use automotive grade chassis grease like # L11316. The hitch should be lubricated and checked for proper function before each trip. If the jaws are...

  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. The best method is to replace the pin box on your 5th wheel with a compatible goose box...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short Box

Features include serrated dual jaws for consistent king pin contact; built-in vibration-isolators for a smoother ride; and a 4-Way pivoting head that eases hookup, even on uneven ground. Please see the linked videos. Revolution or Sidewinder pin boxes are a good solution for 5th wheel towing in short-bed trucks like your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2-foot bed since...
