Upon receipt of the E16 Hitch, R16 slider, rails, & universal installation kit I noticed one package was broken open and it contents falling out. Upon taking inventory determined parts were missing. I contacted etrailer about the missing parts and they responded amazingly. Even though the damaged packaging was not there fault I had the missing part a day and half later. The hitch was installed on time and is everything I expected it to be. I will be a return customer. 762439

After purchasing this product to help me install hitch on my truck it was really easy to do. My truck has a flatbed instead of regular box and this kit made it very easy to secure it to the frame of my truck with this mounting system. Thank You Dane 588445

  • Where are Fifth Wheel Installation Rails Placed in Bed of 2008 Ford F-350
    The instructions call for the rear rail to be placed first, with it's rear edge 32-1/2 inches forward of the rear edge of the truck bed (not the rear edge of the tailgate) as shown in the provided diagram. I've linked you to the installation instructions for the Reese # RP30035 which is Reese's version of the universal fifth wheel hitch installation kit as I was unable to access the instructions for the Curt # C16101. Both install kits are identical and install in the same exact manner....

  • Installation Instructions for Curt Universal Base Rail Installation Kit # C16101
    I have attached a link below that will take you to the installation manual for the Curt Universal 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit # C16200, which details the complete process for installing the Installation Kit # C16101 that you referenced. The Base Rail Kit includes both the mounting hardware and the needed industry-standard base rails for your truck.

  • 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.

  • Reese Universal Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for Use with Reese Rails
    I have a solution for you, but we can't recommend mixing manufacturer brands between fifth wheel rails and the brackets. Since you have Reese rails what you would need is the universal L-bracket kit part # RP30439. With this kit you would essentially get the rail kit part # RP30035 when combined with your Reese rails.

  • Curt Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Fits for a 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    Do you have Curt base rails already? If so, the part # C16101 is a universal bracket kit that could be used to install them in your 2011 GMC Sierra short bed. If not email me back with the brand of rails you have and I will see if we offer a bracket kit for them. Otherwise you could always go with an entirely new rail and bracket kit like the # C16411-204. Which is a custom kit for your vehicle that will minimize drilling. If you have the Curt rails and want custom brackets instead of...

  • 1997 Ford F-250/F-350 5th Wheel Rails and Brackets Recommendation and Installation Info
    I'm happy to provide you with installation details, but the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # 16437 is not a fit for your 1997 Ford F-250/F-350. While there are no custom brackets available for your truck, you can use a universal kit, like the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30035 or the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit # C16100. Brackets and rails of the same brand must be used, so if you already have...

  • Brackets Needed to Install Curt Above Bed Base Rails on a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado
    If you have a set of Curt above bed base rails then you are going to want to use either the Curt Universal Base Rail Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # C16101 for a drill option or the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit part # C16418 for a no drill option to install them on your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado. The reason you need to use these instead of the Husky Universal Mounting Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # HT31622 is because it is not recommended to...

  • Recommended Curt 5th Wheel Install Kit for a 1997 Ford F-250 Heavy Duty
    I do have an option for you but they do not offer a truly custom fit 5th wheel install kit for a 1997 Ford F-250 Heavy Duty. I recommend you use the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit part # C16100 instead. If you already have a set of Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails part # C16204 then you will just need the Curt Universal Base Rail Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # C16101. That said, you cannot mix base rail and frame bracket manufactures...

  • Fifth Wheel Base Rail Installation Brackets For 1993 Chevrolet 2500 Long Bed
    There are not custom brackets for a 1993 Chevy C/K 2500. If you have Reese rails, then I recommend the Reese Universal Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches (No Base Rails) - 10 Bolt # RP30439 or the entire kit # RP30035 if you don't know the rail brand as it isn't recommended to mix brands. If you have Curt rails, then use # C16101.
