Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit C16104 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt universal fifth wheel base rails with the gloss finish. These base rails will install in your truck bed to provide the necessary attachment points for your fifth wheel trailer hitch. These rails are a sturdy steel construction, has a nice high gloss black powder coat finish on it to help resist corrosion. They're also cold cured in a rust resistant liquid Bonderite coating. These are compatible with above bed fifth wheel hitches from Curt, Drawtite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley. They are also designed to work with goose neck adapters.

This part will include the two base rails. It does require a custom installation kit with the mounting brackets and hardware to install this on your vehicle. We do sell that separately on our website. What I would recommend for that is you need to go to our website, use our fit guide. Put in your year, make, and model vehicle and it'll show you what custom installation kit is required to put these rails on your vehicle. Total length on these rails is 43 inches long.

That should do it for the review on the Curt universal fifth wheel base rails in the high gloss finish.

needed them quickly and at a good price etrailer delivered as usual



by:

After placing the order for the universal rails I received a call from a rep suggesting I purchase the custom fit for my Ram 3500 which I did. The directions were straight forward and the install was too bad. I was concerned that a couple of the bolts came down in a location where torquing the nuts was not possible. I have checked several times and they are still very tight. I recommend these as they work great with my hitch.



by:

etrailer had the best prices and the best availability I could find! Not to mention the customer service, Stacey went WAY above and beyond and worked very hard finding and getting us what we needed in a timely manner! She was very knowledgeable and helpful making sure I got what I needed! I can’t thank etrailers and Stacey enough!!



by:

EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED AND DISAPPOINTED to say the least I placed the order online and it was a week late then the time it was supposed to be delivered that in itself was frustrating I need to deliver a fifth wheel trailer to a customer so that caused a delay but times are tuff so things happen I let the customer know so I waited finally received the package and it was taped at all corners once I opened it the hardware bag was opened and missing 3 pieces which keep me from installing the hitch brackets reached out and talk to a customer rep to get the missing parts shipped she said it would be expedited I just noticed that the parts won’t make it in till literally a whole week after my call to them about missing parts that my friends is not expediting! The customer is rightfully upset. I would have paid for them to express mail the parts even if it was their responsibility in order for me to provide good customer service on my end. Now I need to hire someone else to deliver the trailer. I’m very disappointed on how etrailer handled this turning this purchase into a regretful one.



by:

Great product - everything needed in the box. As previous reviews state, not too bad installing except the front driver side near the gas tank was an absolute nightmare. Hitch fit perfectly in the rails after install. Can't beat etrailer's support and guidance such as the video to help with install.



by:

Super quick shipping. It arrived a day ahead of schedule.



by:

We have not had our tails installed yet, however I was extremely impressed with how fast the product shipped. Personally I feel that company’s are using covid as an excuse for poor customer service. NOT ETRAILER. Will def be ordering from them again in the future.



by:

Nice Rails for my new truck. The powder coating was very nice looking and appears durable. The customer service at Etrailer is superior!



by:

Install took about 30 minutes with the brackets. Perfect fit



by:

Good product fit perfect to holes for Reese rails



by:

Once again, EXCELLENT product sent quickly. Every time I have ordered something from etrailer it has gone perfectly.



by:

I paid for two day shipping and I received the product on the third day. It looks like a great product it will not fit my hitch.



by:

Description was correct.. fitment worked great

by:




The rails are nicely protected
with a good finish and are of adequate strength.

  • Above Bed 5TH Wheel Rails Availability Separate From Mounting Brackets
    We do carry the in bed 5th wheel rails separate from the lower brackets for your 2020 Ford F-250. I do recommend matching the manufacturer for lower brackets to ensure you do not have any fitment issues. Here is a list of the different rails we carry. Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Gloss Finish # C16104 Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Carbide Black Finish # C16204 Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Dark Gray Finish # C99JR B&W Universal Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer...

  • Recommended Curt 5th Wheel Rails and Replacement Hardware
    Yes, you can. You will need the Curt Universal 5th Wheel Base Rails item # C16104 and the Replacement Hardware for Curt Universal 5th Wheel Installation Kit item # C16111. These will match up perfectly with the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit item # C86WR you already purchased. Please note that the hardware kit will supply hardware for both the rails to be installed and the brackets. There is no option for a hardware kit that only installs the rails. There are quite a few different size...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Brackets That Fit 2018 Ram 2500
    Hi Rick, We do have the correct Curt 5th wheel brackets that fit your 2018 Ram 2500, though it's a different part number than the one you mentioned. The correct brackets are the following: - Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Ram Truck # C16427 Also keep in mind the # C16427 will only work with Curt base rails - part # C16104 or # C16204 - and will not work with any other manufacturer's base rails. And just in the interest of being thorough if you happen to need a 5th wheel wiring...

  • Does Curt Bracket Kit C16411 Come with Hardware to Attach to Fifth Wheel Rails
    The only way we can recommend the part # C16411 for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 is if the rails you currently have are made by Curt. We can't recommend mixing rail and bracket manufacturers. The brackets are 3/8 inch thick and all of the needed hardware is included including the hardware that attaches the brackets to the rails. If you do need Curt rails you would also want the part # C16104.

  • No-Drill 5th Wheel Brackets That Fit 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500
    We do have no-drill 5th wheel brackets which are a fit for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500. The correct fit for your truck is the following: - Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck # C16429 This bracket kit will install onto your Chevy without any drilling, though they do require you use the Curt above-bed base rails (all 5th wheel brackets need to use the same manufacturer's base rails in order to fit). For that you can choose from two different finishes, either the Curt...

  • Recommended Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit For A 2014 Dodge Ram 1500
    Though we do not sell just one bracket alone, you can purchase The Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram 1500 # C16306. It comes with everything you will need to install your fifth wheel brackets on your Ram 1500. These brackets are designed to be used with The Curt Universal Base Rails # C16104 or # C16204 which are sold separately. I attached an installation video link below.

  • Measurement of Curt Fifth Wheel Base Rails
    I went to the warehouse to take some measurements of the Curt # C16104 base rails and found that they are 43" long and roughly 5-5/8" wide. I have added a photo showing some of the dimensions of the mounting holes for you as well. Center to center, the closest holes are roughly 10" apart, the second set of mounting holes is 20-1/2" while the third set is 29" apart. I have also added a link to a video review of these rails for you to take a look at.

    It sounds like you have the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails # C16104 that you're wanting to install on your 2017 Ford F-150. With this being the case I recommend getting the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C86WR which comes with custom brackets (which means no drilling into your truck frame) and replacement hardware to get everything installed correctly. These rails and brackets give you the complete kit # C93WR which fits all bed sizes for your 2017 F-150. Please let me know...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Brackets and Rails For a 2023 Ford F-150 XLT STX
    The rails included in the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16441-104 you were looking at will fit your 2023 Ford F-150 XLT STX, but you will need alternate mounting brackets. The correct mounting brackets are the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C86WR. I was able to verify this through the manufacturer. Then the rails are the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails # C16104.

  • Could Curt Above Bed Rails Work with Pullrite Hitch
    It depends on which version of the Superglide fifth wheel hitch you have. If it's an ISR version that means it works with industry standard rails like the part # C16104 that you referenced. If its the version that only attaches to the Pullrite rails we wouldn't be able to help.

  • What is Difference Between Curt Fifth Wheel Rails C16104 and C16204
    The difference between the two Curt rail kits is the finish only. The # C16104 has a gloss finish and the # C16204 has a matte finish. So it really comes down to which look you'd prefer.

  • Installation Instructions for Curt Universal 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit C16101
    The installation instructions for Curt Universal 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit # C16101 are linked for you. With this base rail hardware kit you can install a set of compatible industry-standard-rails (ISRs) like # C16204 or # C16104 (gloss finish). These rails will enable installation of a 5th wheel hitch like the Curt E16 # C16115. If you need a wiring harness for the 5th wheel you can use part # PK11893-11932 from Pollak. The linked video shows installation.

  • Will The Curt Universal Base Rail Installation Kit # C16101 Fit A 2016 Ram 3500
    Hey Kyle, The Curt Universal Base Rail Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # C16101 is a universal-fit so it's going to fit your Ram but depending on the rails you currently have might not be a fit. You would need Curt rails like part # C16104 in order to use these brackets.

  • Does Curt Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Work With 2014 Ram 1500 Sport With Coil Suspension?
    I checked with Curt and the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16306 is a fit for a 2014 Ram 1500 Sport with coil springs. You will need to use base rails # C16104 (gloss finish) or # C16204 (carbide black finish) with these brackets. I've added links to video reviews of each of these products for you to take a look at.

  • Will The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # CU96FR Fit A 2022 Ram 3500 With An 8' Bed
    Hi Charles, Yes, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # CU96FR are a confirmed fit for your 2022 Ram 3500, but they'll need Curt branded base rails in order to work. There's currently two options available depending on the paint job you'd prefer; # C16104 comes with a glossy black finish and the # C16204 comes with a carbide (matte) finish. Personally, I prefer the # C16204 as it can hide scratches better than a glossy finish and doesn't tend to chip away as easily.

  • Difference Between Curt Fifth Wheel Rails C16104 and C16204
    The difference is the finish on the rails. The part # C16104 is a gloss finish whereas the part # C16204 is a matte black finish.

  • Compatible Fifth Wheel Mounting Brackets For A 2023 Ford F-150 With A 5.5' Bed
    According to Curt's fitment catalog the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford 150 # C86WR is a confirmed fit for every model of the 2023 Ford F-150 except for police responder and Lightning models. To go along with the brackets you'll also need some base rails like # C16204 (carbide finish) or # C16104 (gloss finish). According to the instructions the first base rail edge should be installed 28-9/16" from the edge of the bed floor on the tailgate side. Since you have a 5.5' bed...

    The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16418 and Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails # C16104 will fit your 2005 6-1/2 foot bed Chevy. Please check out the attached installation video.

    Mounting brackets for your 2016 Toyota Tundra are available by themselves, though the correct fit will depend on the rails you have, as well as your bed size. If your Tundra has a 6-1/2 foot bed and you have Curt base rails # C16104 or # C16204 you need Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Toyota Tundra # C16468. Alternatively, if you have Reese base rails # RP58058, Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50084 will fit any of the bed sizes for your '16 Tundra. If you let me know...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Rail Custom Bracket Installation on a 2005 Ford F-350
    You are correct. There are 4 bolts that only get attached to the bed itself when using the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16448 and rails # C16104 (gloss black) or # C16204 (carbide/matte black). I've attached a video of this installation to assist. You may also want to consider adding a second 7-way like the Mighty Cord 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector - 7' Long # A10-7007 which will give you a clean look and easy connection access when towing.

  • Does Curt Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit C16427 Fit Rails of Universal Kit C16100
    Yes, the bracket kit part # C16427 that you referenced will work with the same rails that come with the Curt universal rail kit part # C16100 that you mentioned as well. Another option would be to just order the rails by themselves with part # C16104.
