Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel C16017 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt OEM fifth wheel hitch legs for the Ford Super Duty towing prep package. These have a 24,000 pound towing weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory-installed towing prep package. Now, on any custom fit part, I always like to recommend to go to our website, using our Fit Guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show if these will work for your application. Now, these legs, these are the fifth wheel base, which is specifically designed to attach to the receivers in your Ford factory fifth wheel towing prep package. These legs are designed to work with the Curt A-16, A-20, E-16, Q-16, Q-20, and Q-24 hitch heads, which we do sell separately on our website. Basically, the hitch head would bolt right in to here, the legs on the side is what would drop into the truck bed of your vehicle. Now, they do use a quarter-turn anchoring system for quick installation and removal.

I just want to rotate this to show you how that works. If you notice, there are two handles right here. So, we're going to pop open the pin and clip, we'll take that out. That will unlock it. You can see these handles will rotate out a quarter of a turn and, when you do that, it rotates these tabs, which then will allow these legs to drop into the pucks that are in your Ford factory package towing package.

You'll do that on each corner. Once they drop in there, then you just rotate those handles back and you'll notice that will rotate the tabs. That will lock them into those pucks on your factory unit. Then just take your pin, run it right through the holes in the handles. Go ahead and clip it and that will keep the handles from opening and then you're all attached, ready to go. To remove it, it's the same way. Just pop the clip and open it up. These anchors right here, you'll notice the nuts right here, these can be adjusted to eliminate any chucking between the legs and the under bed rails.

These parts are protected by a highly durable carbide black powder coat finish and they are co-cured in a rust-resistant liquid Bonderite coating. Again, the gross towing weight capacity on these legs is 24,000 pounds. One last note. You do never want to exceed the rated towing capacity of your vehicle. But that should do it for the review on the Curt OEM fifth wheel hitch legs for the Ford Super Duty towing prep package with a 24,000 pound weight capacity.

Product exactly as described, assembled with my Q20 head, bought 2018 F350 so upgraded to puck system. Took less than an hour to install. I used lower most head bolt holes and ended up exactly level with 6.5” clearance over bed rails. Puck system was easy to adjust for proper tightness, hopefully avoid “chucking,” first time out is the weekend. 489756

Product is just what I expected, the package was ripped open when delivered by UPS... NOT Etrailers’ fault and nothing was missing. I called customer service before buying this product about fitting in a 2018 F450 and it took less than 5 mins for the rep to get me the answer about fitment. Have always had GREAT luck with etrailer, and that’s why I will continue to use them for my trailer stuff! 477198

Order the OEM Ford leg kit to use with my existing Curt Q16 5th wheel hitch. Needed for my new 2017 F250 that I use to pull my 40' RV. Everything fit and works perfectly. Pricing was the best I found and it arrived at my house the day after I placed the order!!! Great customer service and shipping. I would highly recommend etrailer to anyone looking for towing equipment needs. 406426

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Factory Prep Package Puck Adapter to Universal 5th Wheel Rail Compatible Hitch for Ford, Ram & Chevy
  • The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch # C16265 will work with an adapter for the puck systems. You simply need to recognize that some adapters will limit the towing capacity. Curt is one of the hitches that uses legs compatible with the different pucks, so I will give you both options. For a Ram, you will use Reese adapter # RP30154 or Demco # DM6099. You can alternatively use the Curt legs # C16021 which will mount directly to your pucks. For a Chevy or GMC, you will use the Curt OEM 5th...

  • Installing Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Kit
  • In order to install the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 referenced in your question on your 2019 Ford F-250 that is equipped with the factory prep kit, you will just need the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6175. This adapter will drop right into the factory pucks in the truck bed to provide industry standard base rails that the Curt Q25 will mount to. If you have the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch but would rather not use a separate adapter plate, another option is to replace its...

  • Comparing the Curt Q24 and Q25 5th Wheel Hitches for a 2017 Ford F-350 with the OEM Prep Package
  • The only difference between the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 and the Curt Q25 # C16039 that you referenced is the weight capacity of the hitch head. The Q24 hitch head, part # C16545, is rated for 24,000 lbs while the Q25, part # C16565, is rated for 25,000 lbs. The reason that the part numbers you are looking at have the same weight capacity/rating is that the hitch legs that fit the OEM Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package # 16017 are only rated for 24,000 lbs. Since it is the limiting...

You can tow your friends and family's campers with this hitch allowing you the turning clearance needed. This will also work with a Sidewinder as long as you keep it locked in the front towing location at all times and use the wedge # C16992.

  • Does Curt Replacement A25 Head Include Center Section and What Legs Fit for 2017 Ford F-350 Pucks
  • Replacement Head Unit for Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 25,000 lbs Item # C16580 is the head and the center section so you would only need the appropriate legs for your 2017 Ford F-350 long bed with the factory prep package. The legs are Curt OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch Legs for Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package - 24,000 lbs Item # C16017. But they are rated for 24,000 pounds. Since the legs limit the hitch capacity to 24K you could save some money and go with Curt Q25 5th Wheel...

  • The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30061 can be used with a Curt legs # C16017 and a Curt hitch like # C16520. The max capacity will be limited by the hitch head or the Elite rails which are rated for 18,000 lbs. The Ford OEM system is the same as the Reese Elite system because Reese started that style of clean connection. Other manufacturers followed and altered the measurements so not all OEM legs will work with the...

  • Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch Head for a 2017 Ford F-350 With Prep Package
  • If you currently have the R20 Round Tube Slider # C16550 with your Curt hitch head, like the Q20 # C16530, then you will simply need the Slider # C16020 (for 6-3/4 foot bed) or the Legs # C16017 (for an 8 foot bed) which are compatible with the 2017 Ford F-350 prep package. These 2 options are compatible with the A16 # C16520, E16 # C16515, Q16 # C16520, Q20 # C16530, and Q24 # C16545 Curt hitch heads.

  • What Fifth-Wheel Adapter Will Work for Curt Q20 in 2017 Ford F-350 With Prep Package?
  • You are absolutely correct that both adapters, the Curt Legs, # C16017, and the Reese Elite, # RP30156, will work with the Curt Q20, # C16130, on your new 2017 Ford F-350 with the Ford Hitch Prep Kit. As for ease of use when you want to transfer your hitch between trucks, the Reese is going to be much simpler because the Curt will require you to bolt and unbolt the legs each time, which won't be necessary when using the Reese. I've attached links to video reviews of these products which...

  • Under Bed Rails and Parts Needed to Install Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • For an under bed fifth wheel rail kit that's compatible with your 2015 Silverado, you'll need the Reese # RP30868 under bed rail kit. If you think you might need to tow a gooseneck trailer sometime in the future, you might consider the # RP30158-68 which includes an integrated gooseneck hitch, which will give you the full flexibility to tow anything. If you don't already have a Q24 fifth wheel hitch, Curt offers the # C16545-16017 which is compatible with the under bed rails or puck...

  • Difference Between Curt A20 C16034 and C16017
  • The Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16034 referenced in your question is the complete 5th Wheel Hitch for your 2017 Ford F-350 with the factory rail kit. This hitch includes the legs that will drop directly into the 4 receiver pucks that are built into the factory underbed rails on your truck. The Curt # C16017 that you also mentioned is just the leg assembly for the above 5th Wheel Hitch. The head is not included. I have attached a short video review of this 5th Wheel Hitch...

I called and confirmed with Curt it is compatible all the way up to present without issues.

  • Fitment of Curt E16 Series Head on a Ford Prep System
  • Good news! I can help you figure out whether or not you will need the Curt Roller Adapter # C16505 to complete your conversion for the Ford Prep Package. If you purchased the E16 Head # C16515, the unit will already come with the bracket # C16505. If your E16 head is from an old 5th wheel kit and you do not have this bracket then yes, will need it to get the head to mount properly to the legs for the Ford Prep Package.

These are the legs that are used in the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16039 and why the total capacity is 24K instead of 25K.

  • Does Reese Make the Ford Hitch Prep Fifth Wheel Rails
  • Reese Elite underbed rails and the Ford hitch prep packages are the exact same underbed rail systems. Reese makes the kits for Ford. For more info on this check out the link I attached to the right. The Curt leg kit part # C16017 that you referenced would install in either the Reese Elite or the Ford hitch prep package as long as everything was installed correctly. We have not heard of any issues where the Curt hitches designed for the Ford hitch prep didn't fit.
