Curt Fifth Wheel C16515-16026 Review

Speaker 1: Today I'm gonna take a look at the Curt E-16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Nissan Titan XD towing prep package. This hitch has a 16,000 weight capacity. Now again the application for this is 2016 and newer Nissan Titan XD trucks with the factory installed towing prep package.Now this fifth wheel hitch mounts in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. This one uses the auto-locking slide bar design. The slide bar jaw mechanism that'll provide superior security has a rear tension bar right back here that'll work with that slide bar to clamp around the king pin, helps minimize your rattle in movement.This is a dual pivoting head with a 10 degree lateral movement for simple hook-up. It does use permalube pivot bushings to increase your hitch slide for reduced maintenance and the handle right here you can see can be locked with a padlock.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16520-16026 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt A16 fifth wheel trailer hitch for the Nissan Titan XD towing prep package. This has a 16,000-pound weight capacity. Now, the application for this hitch is 2016 and newer Nissan Titan XD trucks that have the factory installed towing prep package. Basically, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer.This one uses the high strength interlocking two jaw system. It provides a nice 360-degree jaw to kingpin contact. Basically, the jaws fully wrap around the kingpin to minimize noise.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16530-16026 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Nissan Titan XD Towing Prep Package. This has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Now, again, the application for this hitch is 2016 and newer Nissan Titan XD trucks that have the factory installed towing prep package.

Curt Fifth Wheel C16540-16026 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Nissan Titan XD Towing Prep Packages. It has a 20,000 lb weight capacity. Again, this is a custom fit part. It is designed for the 2016 and newer Nissan Titan XD Trucks that have that factory installed towing prep package.Now this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed, so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. They do use the high strength, interlocking, two-jaw system right here, which will provide a nice 360-degree jaw-to-king pin contact. That means your jaws will fully wrap around the king pin to minimize noise, gives you less rattle, more security than the slide bar model.


Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Ram 2500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2016 RAM 2500, we're gonna be taking a look at the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R20 Slider, part number C16536. So here's what our 5th wheel hitch and slider look like when they're fully installed. Now, this is gonna allow us to tow a 5th wheel trailer with our truck. If you have less than a eight food bed, when you tow with the 5th wheel, the slider's gonna greatly benefit us because it's gonna give us 12 inches of travel, forward and back, allowing to have enough clearance so that our trailer is not gonna make contact with our cab.Now, if we come to the side here, we can see that it's in the towing position. But if we come to the lever and we pull out on the lever and slightly turn it, we'll see that there's a red notch right here. This is gonna allow the 5th wheel to slide back into the maneuvering position.



B and W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch Review

Today we're gonna be taking look at the BMW Companion OEM fifth-wheel trailer hitch with slider for the Ram towing prep package. Part number is DWRVK3670. Now this companion fifth-wheel is designed to go directly into the Ram puck system, so we can get a fifth-wheel hitch put in the bed of the truck that does offer a slider without any bed modifications. That's really key I think, about the puck system and being able to get something like this put in your bed very quickly. Now something that really sets this sliding set up apart from any others is the distance that it actually travels. With this one we've got a very easy to operate lever here on the side. Just gonna slide that into the unlocked position and this gives us a full twelve inches of travel. We'll then move that handle back into the locked position.

  • 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.

  • 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...

You may be able to find replacement parts on private ad sites or auction sites, but new replacement parts are not available.

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch

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.

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • There are two Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rail Kits for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2014 Ram 2500. The difference between the two is the length of rail and where the brackets meet the rail, not where they iinstall on your truck frame. The # RP56009-53 kit has 48 inch rails which will allow you more working room when installing over the # RP50054-58 which have rails 43 inches long. Both rail kits will be able to be installed and are functional with the...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Chevy Silverado with 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • It is possible to install a fifth wheel hitch in the bed of a 5-1/2 ft bed 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500, but since the bed is so short it makes things a bit more interesting. The only slider hitch we offer that will slide far enough back to give you turning clearance is the Demco Hijacker Auto-Slide part # DM8550040. This hitch has 22-1/2 inches of sliding travel compared to most sliders that can only go about half that. For a rail kit to install this hitch you will need the custom install...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for 2015 Ram 2500 4WD 6 Foot Bed
  • Reese offers three different 5th wheel installation kits that are compatible with your 2015 Ram 2500. The Universal Kit part # RP30035 is a lower cost alternative, but because holes would need to be drilled into the truck frame, install would take longer than it would with a Custom Install Kit. An outboard custom kit is available as part # RP50054-58. This kit uses fifth wheel bed rails that are longer, that allow the rails to connect to the bed brackets on the outboard side of the...

  • Recommended No-Drill Fifth Wheel Frame Bracket/Bed Rail Install Kit for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Reese offers two different no-drill frame bracket/bed rail options for your 2015 Silverado 2500, neither of which would require drilling into the truck frame. The inboard bracket kit, part # RP50066-58 is a bit less expensive, but is a bit more difficult to use, as the attachments between the bracket and the bed rail are made on top of the frame members, making them a bit more difficult to get to. Another option would be the Reese outboard rail kit, part # RP56001-53 that used bed rails...

All such industry standard rails (ISRs) will work with any hitch that is designed for such above-the-bed installation. Such an install kit from Curt is part # C16411-204. Now, in a truck like your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with the 5th wheel prep package you will instead use an adapter # C16023.

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.
