Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit C16424 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford trucks. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 to 2016 Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty trucks with either the 6 3/4 foot bed or the 8 foot bed and without the factory rail kit. Now these custom brackets will mount beneath your truck bed. They do provide the attachment points for your fifth wheel base rails. Those we do sell separately on our website.

It does require the Curt base rails and those are sold in either part number C16104 or C16204. Now these brackets will provide a custom fit by mounting to existing holes in your vehicle's frame. This will help minimize the amount of drilling that's required and it does cut the installation time in half when compared with Universal bracket kits. This part includes both the two mounting brackets, all of the mounting hardware, and instructions, and even the sensor control module relocation bracket. Now when this part is used with the Curt base rails this part is compatible with BMW, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reece, and Valley fifth wheel hitches. That should do it for the review on the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford Trucks.

Not as good of a fit as the Reese counterparts I have installed. Had to open the 1/2” side rail holes up. I am happy with the product due to having the additional 3/4” bolt in the center of the side rails as others do not.


Comments
After a year the mount still works very well!

Easy install except for torqueing 3/4 bolt thru frame. Needed to be 380 lbs torque and most shops don't have a wrench that will go that high. I took it to a trailer shop and they did it for me for $25. Good product. Good follow up from their tech support with questions. Highly recommend them and this product. Saved me a ton of money.

  • Which Curt 5th Wheel Bracket Kit Fits A 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty?
    I have another option for you, but the Curt 5th Wheel Bracket Kit # C16424 you were looking at only works with select Ford F-250/350/450s from 2011-2016. For your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty you will need the the Curt # C16428 instead. If you do not have the above bed rails already then you will also need the Curt # C16204. This will allow you to use a 5th wheel hitch that utilizes industry standard rails (ISR). Lastly since your truck does not have the OEM Towing Prep Package you...

  • 5th Wheel Frame Brackets for a 2012 Ford F-250
    If you already have the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford part # C16424 on your 2012 Ford F-250 then you will want to use these with the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails part # C16104, not the Reese Universal Base Rails part # RP58058 or part # RP30035 because you cannot mix and match base rails with frame brackets from different manufactures. If you have the Reese Universal Base Rails in your only 2000 Ford F-250 then you can use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit...

  • Can Curt Brackets be Used with Reese Rails to Install 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in a 2010 Ford F-250
    We strongly advise not mixing brackets and rails from 2 different manufacturers. The reason is they have not been tested together so compatibility cannot be guaranteed and the capacity will be unknown. If you had Curt brackets before then yes, you can use the # C16424 brackets on the 2010 Ford F-250. But if you have Reese rails you will want the Reese brackets, # RP50082. The hardware to attach the rails to the brackets is meant for one time use so you will want to replace it with...

  • Correct Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for a 2015 Ford F-350
    The correct Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for a 2015 Ford F-350 is part # C16424 or you can get the kit, the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit part # C16424-204 which are both no drill options (frame). The only other thing I recommend to compete your setup is the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness part # C56070.

  • Correct Curt Manufacturing 5th Wheel Install Frame Brackets for 2000 Ford F350 w/ 8 Foot Bed
    For your 2000 Ford F350, the correct frame mounting bracket kit would be part # C16443. For the frame bracket/ bed rail kit, use part # C16443-204. If you already have Curt bed rails, you can certainly use the # C16443 by itself, but we don't recommend using frame brackets and bed rails from different manufacturers. They WILL fit, but since they haven't been tested together, using brackets from one manufacturer and rails from another could yield an unknown weight capacity, which would...

  • Will Any 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Above the Bed Rails in a 2002 Ford F-150
    You have a lot of options for a 5th wheel hitch but not all hitches will fit the rails in your Ford F-150. You need a hitch that fits in above the bed industry standard rails. So for example you would be able to use a Reese hitch such as # RP30928 but the PS30119 or RP30871 would not. The rails in your truck bed should look like the ones in the picture I have provided. The 5th wheel hitch you choose also will depend on the bed length. For a long bed you would used a fixed hitch. For...

  • 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for 2014 Ford F-150 for Use With Pro Eagle 5th Wheel Hitch
    Universal 5th wheel base rail install kits will fit a wide range of vehicles but since yours were torch cut I would not attempt to re-use them. You also do not want to re-use any installation hardware. I did not find specifics about your 2001 Pro Eagle 5th wheel hitch but if this unit uses industry-standard base rails you should be able to install it on a new set of rails. We do not recommend mixing brands of base rails and installation brackest; we have seen some fit/compatibility issues...

  • The Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2006 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    Yes, there are custom 5th wheel installation kits that will fit your 2006 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 foot bed. You can use Reese kit # RP50081-58 or # RP56006-53. The rails included with these kits will accept Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, Pro Series, and Valley 5th-wheel hitches that fit in above the bed rails. Since your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed in order to tow a 5th wheel trailer and not hit the trailer and truck together when turning you will need to use a Sidewinder...

  • Brackets to Install Reese Rails in Bed of 1985 Ford F-250
    The brackets you need to install your Reese fifth wheel rails are the universal L-brackets part # RP58314 which are confirmed to fit your 1985 Ford F-250 and the Reese rails you have. You'll also need the hardware kit part # RP58504 as well as # RP58430 and you'd be set! Your air bags would not need to be removed either.

    To install an above bed Valley Fifth Wheel hitch on your 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty Short Bed I would recommend to use the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part # RP50026-58. This is a custom install kit which will minimize the drilling and measuring and cut the install time in half compared to a universal installation kit. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Reese kit. The Reese installation kit includes base rails and custom mounting brackets and will...

  • Does Curt Bracket Kit part # C16424 Fit the Rails of Curt Universal Kit C16200
    If you have the rails of the kit part # C16200 they would be compatible with the Curt bracket kit part # C16424 that you referenced. This would then work with your R5 Roller hitch as well.

  • Fitment 2021 F-350 Dually
    The Curt # C16424-104 that you referenced is not a fit for a 2021. You will need the Curt # C16424 bracket kit and the Curt # C16204 Universal Base Rails. These 43" Rails are compatible with Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley, and Husky. Their low profile takes very little room in your truck bed.

I recommend custom install above bed fifth wheel rails # RP50074-58 for your 2019 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 bed without factory prep package. The Installation rails are Reese brand so you would need to install the whole kit and not just the brackets. There...

    The Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit - Carbide Black Finish # C16200 or gloss finish # C16100 will fit with your 2016 Ford F350 8 foot bed. You will measure from the rear edge of your truck bed (not tailgate) to put the back edge of the rear rail at 32-1/2 inches from that rear edge. Then you will use that rear rail and your hitch to determine the location of your front rail for the correct fit. For an easier installation that requires no measuring or drilling...
