Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit C16443 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for the Ford F250 and F350 trucks. Now, this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 1999 to 2004 Ford F250 and F350 trucks, with either the six and three quarter foot bed, or the eight food bed. Now, on any custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Now, these are custom brackets, these will mount beneath your truck bed, and they provide the attachment points for your fifth wheel base rails to connect to. The base rails we do sell separately. These brackets do require the Curt base rails, we sell those in either the part number C16104, or C16204.

Now, these brackets will provide a custom fit by mounting to existing holes in your vehicles frame. This will help minimize the amount of drilling that is required, and it cuts the installation time in half, when compared with universal bracket kits. It does include everything shown here on the table; it includes the two mounting brackets, all the mounting hardware you need to install it, and a nice set of detailed instructions. Now, when these brackets are used with the Curt base rails, this part is compatible with BMW, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley fifth wheel hitches. That should do it for the review of he Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for the Ford F250 and F350 trucks.

Item and instructions were spot on! Installed by myself in a couple of hours. I had universal brackets that had to be removed first, that's why it took longer. Would i buy this product from etrailer again? [HECK] YES! MY only regret was not buying this product from them to begin with. They've gained a new loyal customer ..... Me! Thank you tech support and etrailer! 708069

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F-350 without Drilling
  • The Curt fifth wheel bracket kit you would need to install a set of Curt rails in the bed of your 2001 Ford F-350 would be the part # C16443. This will require drilling though. For a rail and bracket kit for your truck that won't require drilling you would want the part number # RP50082-58. I attached an install video for you to check out. Since we don't recommend mixing rail and bracket manufacturers this would be your best option.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 1986 Ford F-250
  • There are 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kits that will fit your 1986 Ford F-250 but Curt kit # C16443 will not fit. For a kit that will fit no matter how your 1986 F-250 is configured you can use the Reese universal kit # RP30035. The 1986 Ford F-250 came in a short and long bed and overload springs were an option. To see the other options you can use the link provided to go to the 5th wheel hitch main page for your truck. Choose the configuration that matches what you have and...

  • 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...

  • Is the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16443 Compatible with Air Bags on a 2001 Ford F350
  • I spoke to my contact at Curt and he said that the air bags that are installed on your 2001 Ford F350 are compatible with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16443. To install both at the same time you will need to first remove the air bags, install the fifth wheel rails, and then install the air bags. I attached a copy of the installation instructions for you to check out also.

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F-250
  • Actually the Curt fifth wheel bracket kit you would need is the part # C16443. The # C16448 that you referenced is not compatible with your truck so I would not recommend it for you. If you needed rails as well you would want the part # C16204 for just the rails or part # C16443-204 to order a kit that includes both.

  • Correct Curt Custom Brackets for Curt Base Rails on a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Curt Custom Brackets # C16443 are what you need to use for your 1999 Ford F-250 as the Custom Brackets # C16448 are for 2005-2010 Ford Super Duty models. You can combine this bracket kit with the industry standard base rails as part # C16443-204 on our site. This kit will fit whether you have the long or short bed.

  • Custom Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation Brackets for 2008 Ford F350

  • Will Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, Rails and Install Kit, # C16116, Fit a 2000 Ford F-250
  • The installation kit that comes with the Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Rails and Universal Installation Kit, # C16116, includes the rails and will fit your 2000 Ford F-250. For a quicker install time with less drilling, you could add Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit, # C16443, but it is not mandatory. Installation details linked below. Since you have a short bed pickup, you will need to use a slider hitch, like the Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with R5 Roller, Rails...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for 1990 Ford F-250 and Where to Locate Rails in Bed
  • For your 1990 Ford F-250 long bed we have the Reese universal fifth wheel rail kit part # RP30035 as a fit which will work great. In general you want to install fifth wheel rails so that the center of the hitch's jaw is centered over the rear axle or slightly forward. That said Reese recommends you place the rear rail edge 29-1/4 inches forward of the rear edge of the truck bed which puts the fifth wheel jaw center 1-1/2 inches forward of rear axle center. This is several inches forward...
