Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Silver Series 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider. Its part number is HT31326-31196. Now, to operate the slider portion, we'll have that right here, and what we'll do here is lift up on our lever. As we do it, it's going to rotate our locking plate up and out of the way, and then that allows us to slide that back, reengage the lever there. Then, we can lock it in that position for a maneuvering position. Now, this delivers 10" of travel, so that's going to get the front of our camper 10" further away from the rear of our vehicle. It's going to make it nice at the low speeds only when we're trying to maneuver into our parking spaces, maybe camp sites and things like that.



Demco RV Fifth Wheel DM8550043 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Demco Recon Single Jaw 5th Wheel trailer hitch with a 21,000 pound weight capacity. Now this 5th wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your 5th wheel trailer. It uses a nice wraparound single piece jaw that'll provide a secure connection. It gives you 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. That'll give you less rattle, more security, than the slide bar jaws. If you notice in front right up here, there's a 3/4-inch thick solid steel locking bar, which will reinforce the connection of your coupling trailer, and that'll automatically lock into place when the jaw closes. It does use a double pivot hitch head, which will ease hookup, helps limit chucking.




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 C16621 Review

Today, we are going to review part number C16621. This is the CURT Q16 Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitch with the R16 slider, the base rails and the installation kit all included and this has a sixteen thousand pound weight capacity. Now, this heavy duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has the dual jaw, has a nice pivoting head and on the very back here it uses a color-coded lock indicator to give you superb safety and security. Now, the two jaw locking system right here provides a three-hundred and sixty degree jaw-to-king pin contact and because of that, it'll give you less rattle, more security than a lot of the Slide-Moore models. This has a self-aligning wide head opening right here you can see for a nice simple hook-up. The way they do that is they use a fully articulating torsion head which gives you controlled coupling and a nice stable, quiet ride. Now, there is two lube points, which for easy access, grease Zerk fittings and they are located on the front of each jaw.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16520-16020 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the slider for the Ford towing prep package and this has a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part and is designed to fit the Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty Trucks with the 6-3/4' bed and the factory rail kit starting with the years 2011. On any custom fit part, what I always like to recommend is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this will work for your application. This 5th Wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th Wheel Trailer. The part that I'm describing would be the hitch head on the slider. 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.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16520-16021 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16520-16021. This is the Curt Q16 fifth wheel trailer hitch for the Ram towing prep package. It has a sixteen thousand pound weight capacity. Now this is custom fit part. It is designed to fit the Dodge Ram and Ram trucks with the factory rail kits starting in 2013. Now this offers a two jaw locking system which provides three hundred and sixty degree jaw to king pin contact and because of that it gives you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models.

  • Can A Fifth Wheel Trailer Be Used with a Ford F-150 Supercrew 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate if you would...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch
  • You have two options for installing the RBW Lil Rocker in your 2007 Ford F-150 pickup. You can use the Universal Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit with Rails, item # RP30035, or the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Brackets - Ford F-150, item # RP50081-58 that you referenced. I would recommend you use the Custom Brackets # RP50081-58, these will install in about half the time of the universal rails and will minimize the drilling into your 2007 Ford F-150. I have...

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with RamBox and 6-Foot Bed
  • A short bed truck by itself can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited front-to-back clearance between the truck cab and the trailer's overhang. When we add the Rambox feature we also add another complication: reduced side-to-side clearance. Hitch makers like Reese, Curt and B&W discourage use of 5th wheels in such trucks; that said, there are those that have satisfactorily installed 5th wheels anyway. The best solution for the turning clearance problem in such trucks...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package and Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Since the trailer comes with the Reese Revolution pin box you will need a fixed hitch, not a slider, and a custom wedge to match the hitch. The wedge prevents the trailer from turning at the hitch so that it turns 22 inches further back allowing you to make tight turns without needing a slider. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package on Ford trucks including your 2017 F-350 I recommend the Reese Elite hitch # RP30142. And for a custom wedge use # SWW-01.

  • Is there a Standard Hitch Ball Size for Gooseneck Hitches
  • Most 25K or 30K gooseneck hitches come with a standard 2-5/16" hitch ball. If you were to get a Hide-a-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch from Draw-Tite # 9460-48, you would have the option to get a different sized ball. This hitch comes with a 2-5/16 sized ball but you could also purchase a Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 19307. This ball has a 3 inch diameter.

  • Are Replacement Parts Available For the RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Replacement parts for the RBW Lil Rocker are no longer available. RBW Industries, the manufacturer of the Lil Rocker, was acquired by AL-KO Kober Corp and the fifth wheel lines were discontinued. You may be able to find replacement parts on private ad sites or auction sites, but new replacement parts are not available. If you would consider a new fifth wheel hitch, we have several options that you may be interested in. An economical hitch that has a similar design to the Lil Rocker...

  • Can Air Lift or Firestone Air Bags be Installed with Reese Under Bed Kit on a 2016 Ford F-250
  • The frame brackets for Reese under bed installation kit # RP30126 mount to the outboard sides of the frame rails on your 2016 Ford F-250. This means that any air bag kit that mounts on the inboard sides of the frame rails will work with the under bed kit. So for Air Lift, if your truck is a 4x4 use # AL88396. And if it is 2-wheel drive use # AL88395. And for Firestone you can use # F2535 for 4- or 2-wheel drive models. This kit was specifically designed for diesel models. I have...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • There is a fifth wheel rail that just got released as a fit for all models of the 2016 Ram 1500. It is the part # RP50142-58. I have a solution for you, but the Pullrite Superglide isn't going to work for you though as your truck bed is too short for a standard slider hitch to give enough clearance. The solution I have for you that is very similar though. The Demco Hijacker part # DM8550040 is an auto-slide hitch like the SuperGlide except it provides 22-1/2 inches of sliding clearance....

  • Can Fifth Wheel Bed Rails Be Removed When Hitch is Not Being Used
  • When the Reese 5th wheel hitch is removed from the bed rails, the rails will remain in the truck bed. Once the rails are installed by bolting them through the bed to the frame brackets and tightened to their specified torque, they need to remain in place. Removing the bed rails repeatedly would cause undue stress on the mounting hardware thus weakening it, which is why the hardware is rated for a one-time use only. Using the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part...

  • To address your concern about the compatibility of the Reese R16 Slider Hitch, # RP30869, with the Curt Custom Rail Kit, # C16448-204, they are compatible with each other. The above bed base rails that are used with the Curt Custom kits are the industry standard above bed rails that are used by Reese and other fifth wheel hitch manufacturers. The custom aspect of the Curt rail kit is the brackets. There is no drilling (into the frame) required to install the custom brackets and they...

  • Best Way to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with 2014 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • For towing fifth wheel trailers with a truck that has a bed length of 5-1/2 feet the best option is the Sidewinder pin box. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once...

  • Best Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 1500 Short Bed with Air Suspension
  • The Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50142-58 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ram 1500 short bed with air suspension so it would be your best options. The best slider hitch we offer would be the # DM8550034. What's so great about this hitch is that it automatically slides back in the truck bed as you make tight turns so you would never have to get out and activate the slider.

  • Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2012 F450 with Hitch Prep
  • It sounds like you have the 5th wheel trailer prep package installed in the bed of your 2012 Ford-F-450 Super Duty. This system is great as all you need is an Elite hitch like the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30142 and you would be ready to go. You do not need rails as you have an underbed rail system in your truck bed already.

  • Gooseneck Ball for a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Factory Prep Package
  • There are a couple of ball kit options that fit the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package on your 2016 Ram 3500. I recommend the Curt kit, # C60618, which is the ball, safety chain tie downs, and a cover for the ball hole when the ball is not being used. (None of balls the fit the OEM system will hide in the ball cavity like the Turnover ball hitches from B&W.) You can also use the Reese kit # RP30140 which also includes the tie downs and cover but also includes a storage bag....

  • What Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fits a 2016 Ram 1500 5-1/2 foot bed with Ecodiesel
  • Yes, the Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50142-58 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ram 1500 5-1/2 foot bed with Ecodiesel engine. For just the brackets you would want the part # RP50142. You should note that your slider hitch is not going to give you enough clearance to make tight turns. Your only option would be to use a Sidewinder pin box and have the slider hitch in the forward position all of the time. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer...
