Having purchased bed rails and a sliding hitch earlier for my short bed Dodge I could not use my e5 fifth wheel head from my long bed Ford without this adapter. Etrailer.com did a fine job of getting what I needed in a timely manner. Everything fit and works perfectly.

This arrived on time and in good condition. After receiving the slider and installing this,it actually fit better than the original without the slide although I still haven't used pulled the trailer yet.

  • Is the Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Head Offered Without the Center Section
    It sounds like you may already have the Curt OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch Legs for Ford part # C16017 with the R5 Roller Adapter part # C16505 attached to it but still need the head. If that is the case then you will want to use the Replacement Head Unit for Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16515 and just remove the center section from the head as they are sold as a pair, not separately. If this is not what you are referring to then please send me a photo of what you have and I can...

  • How to Convert a Standard Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch Into the Sliding Version
    Since you already have the Curt E16 Hitch Head # 16515 you will need the Curt R16 Round Tube Slider for E16 and A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # C16560 and the R5 Roller Adapter # C16505. This will give you a sliding 5th wheel Curt E16 hitch that fits standard base rails like part # 16516. Keep in mind that a sliding 5th wheel hitch is intended for use on truck beds that are 6 feet - 6-1/2 feet long. Anything shorter than 6 feet will require the use of a Sidewinder pin box.

  • 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. I have linked an image of this adapter bracket on the complete...
