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.

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. 634099

  • Fifth Wheel Mounting Brackets for 2016 Toyota Tundra
  • 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...

  • 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.

  • What Brackets and Rails Are Needed to Install an RBW Lil Rocker Fifth Wheel in a 2007 Ram 3500
  • Custom fit brackets do work better in a sense. The installation time is reduced dramatically because custom fit brackets uses as many factory holes as possible so most of the time you do not have to drill any new holes in the truck frame. Part # C16419 will not fit your Ram 3500, those brackets are meant for Ram 1500. For your 2007 Ram 3500 w/ Overload, you would use Curt part # C16420. We also recommend matching the brackets to the rails. It ensures that the holes in the rails will...

  • 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.

  • Recommendation For a Fifth Wheel Slider Hitch and Base Rails on 2005 Ford F-250
  • Since you are asking about a slider hitch it probably means your 2005 Ford F-250 has the 6-1/2 foot bed. My recommendation for a 16K slider hitch would be the Reese 16K Round Tube Slider Hitch, part # RP30075. I really like the round tube slider, as sometimes the square tube model sliders can bind, making the hitch difficult to slide back and forth. The round tube slider hitch will also give you 12 inches of travel towards the tailgate, compared to the 10 inches with a square tube slider...

I would also recommend one of the following Curt hitches depending on your weight capacity needs.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for 2014 Ram 2500 and SuperGlide ISR Hitch
  • For your 2014 Ram 2500 you can use Curt installation kit # C16427-204. This is a custom installation kit which means you will not have to drill in to the truck frame to install the underbed brackets. This means that the kit will install faster and easier than semi-custom or universal kits. Since you are going to get the SuperGlide hitch that fits industry standard rails (ISR) (I believe it is the 2700 model) then it will fit these rails!

  • Looking For Husky Custom Mounting Kit for Husky 5th Wheel Installing on 2007 Dodge Ram Pick-Up

This mounting kit will fit the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500/2500/3500. This mounting kit requires no drilling and fits on Husky universal 4/10 bolt base rails. This will not fit the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 HD 4WD. If your Ram is a 3500 HD 4WD, then the Curt No-Drill Mounting Kit # C16419 will fit, however, it requires the use of the Curt...

  • 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.
