Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the R16 Slider. Part number 16516. So, here's what our E16 Hitch and R16 Slider looks like once we have it installed, and this is going to allow us to tow a fifth wheel trailer down the road safely. And a common issue when you're towing a fifth wheel is that we have a lot of clearance issues if you don't have a full eight foot bed.Whenever we go to make that tight turn, there is a chance that we could make contact with our cab when we're going around a corner. Our slider is going to allow us to have 12 inches of extra clearance whenever we're going around those turns slowly. So, we come to the handle here.


Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ram 2500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 RAM 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt E16 fifth wheel trailer hitch with R16 slider, part number 16516.So here's what our E16 hitch and R16 slider looks like once we have it installed. And this is going to allow us to tow a fifth wheel trailer down the road safely. And a common issue when you're towing a fifth wheel, is that we have a lot of clearance issues if you don't have a full eight foot bed. Whenever we go to make that tight turn, there is a chance that we could make contact with our cab when we're going around a corner.Our slider's going to allow us to have 12 inches of extra clearance whenever we're going around those turns slowly. So if we come to the handle here, pull it out and we're going to turn it towards the cab of the truck and that's going to allow our hitch to slide 12 inches towards the back, giving us that much more clearance. And it will lock back into place in the maneuvering position, so we can go around that turn slowly.On the passenger side, it is going to have an indicator.


Best 2018 Ram 2500 5th Wheel Hitch Options

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the best 5th wheel options for your 2018 Ram 2500. Here we have the Demco. This is going to be the Hijacker Auto Slide 5th Wheel. Here we have the B&W installed on our truck. That's going to be the Companion 5th Wheel with slider. Finally here we have the CURT A16 5th Wheel with the R16 slider.


Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch Installation - 2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Speaker 1: Today on this 2014 Ford F350, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Demco hijacker auto slide fifth wheel hitch with slider for Ford Super Duty prep packaged vehicles. Part number DM8550024.Here's what our Demco auto slide fifth wheel looks like installed. Now the main reason you're going to want a sliding fifth wheel such as this one over other options on the market is that this is going to solve two problems that many of our customers encounter. The first problem that many of our customers encounter is that when they have a short bed truck such as this one, you don't have the necessary clearance between your fifth wheel head and the cab of your truck. So when you go to make tight turns, you find that you run the risk of having contact with the cab of your truck to the overhang on your fifth wheel trailer.The second problem that people encounter is that when they purchase a slider in order to solve the short bed problems when towing a fifth wheel, is that most sliders out there are manual controlled. Which means every time you need to get into a maneuvering position, you have to get out of the truck, operate a handle in order to get your truck into the maneuvering position.


Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch with slider for Ford Super Duty prep packages, part number DM8550024. Here's what our Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel looks like installed. Now the main reason you're going to want a sliding 5th wheel such as this one over other options on the market is that this is going to solve two problems that many of our customers encounter.The first problem that many of our customers encounter is that when they have a short bed truck such as this one, you don't have the necessary clearance between your 5th wheel head and the cab of your truck, so when you go to make tight turns you find that you run the risk of having contact with the cab of your truck to the overhang on your 5th wheel trailer. The second problem that people encounter is that when they purchase a slider in order to solve the short bed problems when towing a 5th wheel is that most sliders out there are manual control, which means every time you need to get into a maneuvering position, you have to get out of the truck, operate a handle in order to get your truck into the maneuvering position. This one, however, is automatic with this rack and pinion gear system, so whenever you need to make a turn, just make your turn and it will automatically move your 5th wheel head back without you having to get out of the truck to make any adjustments.With this one going into the underbed mount rails, it functions the same as the one with the above-bed rails. Here you can see as the truck turns it pivots inside the Hijacker unit.


Reese Fifth Wheel RP30890 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Chevrolet and GMC towing prep package. It has a 20,000 lb. weight capacity. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 or 3500 trucks with either the 6-1/2 ft. bed or the 8 ft.


B and W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter. The part number is BWRVK3050. Now, the companion fifth wheel for flatbeds is really going to give you the best of both worlds in towing. You'll have your gooseneck that's already installed. You want to be sure you have a B&W underbed gooseneck mount hitch installed, and then this is just going to be something you can fit in and get it torqued down with just a single bolt. It really makes it quick and easy to switch between a fifth wheel, if you need it, go back to your gooseneck, and the thing I like about with this fifth wheel when we don't have it installed, we're going to have full access to our truck bed, so it's going to go right back flat, one of the big benefits of that turnover ball system.


Reese Fifth Wheel RP30895 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Chevrolet GMC towing prep package. It has a 27,000 pound weight capacity. It is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks with either the 6-1/2 foot bed or the 8 foot bed and with the factory rail kit, and on a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show if this will work for your application. Now this fifth wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed, so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer.

Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory Installed 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • There are actually several hitches available now that fit directly into the 2016 Ram factory OEM prep package. There is also an option to use a special adapter if you already have a hitch or if you plan on getting a slider hitch (for short bed trucks). The hitches that fit directly are: # BWRVK3600, rated for 25K # C16545-16021, rated for 24K # C16530-16021, rated for 20K # C16520-16021, rated for 16K, dual jaw # C16515-16021, rated for 16K, slide-bar jaw You can also use adapter...

  • 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 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.

  • Ram Truck Factory Puck System for 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The Ram OEM 5th wheel puck system, shown in the linked photo and article, was launched in 2013 so what you have in your truck is likely to be an aftermarket installation of some kind. These newer Ram trucks with the factory prep can directly accept a specialized 5th wheel hitch such as the B&W # BWRVK3600 or the Curt # C16545-16021. Such hitches drop right into those factory pucks, allowing you to completely remove the hitch for a clear bed when necessary for cargo. Without seeing the...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Ford Super Duty Hitch Prep Package Long Bed
  • I would recommend the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3300 that was designed to fit the underbed rail kit of your Ford F-350. The Companion is generally referred to as the nicest fifth wheel hitch on the market so I would highly recommend it for you. It has a 20k capacity so it would have more than enough capacity for your 14k trailer. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • 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....

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • For your new 2017 Ford F-250 short bed you have some options for 5th wheel hitches and installation kits. For an install kit I recommend going with a custom kit, # RP50074-58. With a custom kit there is less drilling required and it takes less time to install compared to universal kits. And for a hitch I recommend the Reese Titan 20 # RP30870. This hitch is rated for 20,000 pounds, features the super-secure serrated dual jaw design, and it is cushioned. I have linked a video review of...

  • 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.

  • Did Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package Come on the F-250s or Short Bed Trucks
  • The factory underbed prep package was available on the F-250 and F-350 but only on the long beds. The aftermarket kit, # RP30126, can be installed on the short bed models. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. This kit does not include the gooseneck hitch portion, only the 5th wheel portion. To add the gooseneck you would need # RP30138.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Do all Fifth Wheel Rails have the Same Dimensions
  • Most fifth wheel rails are made to the same industry standard dimensions. They aren't all though. If you measure 22 inches on center between the two rails and they look like the rails of the # RP30035 that you referenced they would be the industry standard. These rails can fit hitch brands Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky.

  • Will Installed Air Bags Interfere With Installation Of Fifth Wheel On 2001 Ford F-250 Or F-350
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone about your 2001 Ford F-250 or F-350. Since we have a couple of air bag systems manufactured by Firestone I asked if there would be any interference when installing a fifth-wheel hitch and using the custom brackets like part # RP50082-58. My contact at Firestone said that if you have an air bag system like the # F2550 installed on your truck, they would not interfere with a fifth wheel installation because the brackets for the air bag system are installed...

  • 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 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...

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...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Options for a 2014 Ram 3500 Short Bed with OEM Prep Package
  • You have a couple of options since your 2014 Ram 3500 short bed came with the factory prep package. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package you can use Curt 16K hitch # C16515-16021 or # C16520-16021, 20K hitch # C16530-16021, or 24K hitch # C16545-16021. You could also use B&W 25K hitch # BWRVK3600. But with any of the above options, because they are all fixed hitches, you would have to also use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer.

  • Fit of Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail Kit RP30868 in 2017 Silverado with Spray-In Bed Liner
  • The Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30868 does not provide any height adjustment to account for the thickness of a spray-in bed liner. However, the normal installation steps still apply for spray-in liners (and bed mats) up to 1/4-inch thick. Drop-in liners can require trimming to allow for proper hitch installation but your spray-in liner will be fine so long as it does not exceed the 1/4-inch thickness.
