Eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns with this non-binding slider. Provides 12" of travel from front to back. For use with Curt Q24 fifth-wheel trailer hitches. Fits truck beds between 6' and 8' in length.


  • Provides clearance required for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds
    • Prevents trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during sharp, slow-speed turns
  • Works with Curt Q24 5th-wheel trailer hitch rated at 24,000 lbs
  • Slides smoothly on rounded, non-binding rods
  • Designed for use on trucks with beds shorter than 8'
    • Not recommended for use on truck beds shorter than 6'
  • Mounts to industry-standard rails
  • Constructed of durable, carbide powder coated steel


  • Gross towing weight: 24,000 lbs
  • Travel: 12" front to back
  • 10-Year warranty

Note: If using a slider, hitch will not adjust to lowest height setting.

Most often used on trucks with 6-foot and 6-1/2-foot beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

Non-Binding Design

The round-tube design of this slider allows for relatively uninhibited movement of your fifth-wheel hitch. Because your hitch can glide smoothly and easily along the rods, there is less chance of binding.

With straight, flat contact points, as found with square-tube sliders, tension can build between the slider and the hitch when your truck and trailer are somewhat out of line or are on uneven ground. As a result, it can be difficult to properly activate the slider when your truck and trailer are not in a straight line.

With a round-tube slider, there is more give between the contacting surfaces, allowing better mobility of the hitch system. Fewer corners means less tension buildup. Activating a round-tube slider is easier, and operation as a whole is smoother.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel C16570 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16570. This is the Curt R24 Round Tube Slider for the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel trailer hitch. This does have 12 inches of travel. For demonstration purposes I do have the slider mounted on some base rails in the mounting brackets on the side. This is just for demonstration, to show you what it looks like in your vehicle. The base rails and the mounting brackets would be sold separately for your vehicle. This slider will help provide clearance which is required for your short bed pick-up to turn safely at slow speeds.

It will help prevent the trailer from hitting the cab of your pick-up during those sharp, slow speed turns. What happens is, this slider will move your hitch 12 inches to the rear or towards the tailgate and give you that extra clearance. This is designed to work with the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel trailer hitch which is rated at 24,000 lbs. It does slide smoothly on these rounded non-binding rods. This is designed for use on trucks with beds shorter than eight feet and it's not recommended for use on beds that are shorter than six feet.

This will mount to industry standard rails made by Curt, Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch, Pro Series, Reese or Valley. It is constructed of a durable carbide powder coated steel. The gross towing weight capacity on this is 24,000 lbs. Again, the amount of travel is 12 inches front to back. It does include the four pins and clips which are used to hold the slider to the rails. It also includes these four rubber sound dampeners.

Basically what those are used for, you can see it has a little square cut out in it. It's made to fit the tab on the slider so when you go to put these in you stick these up onto where the tab is so when you drop the tab into the rail it will give you this piece of rubber between the slider and the rail. Itll eliminate . It's a sound dampener so it helps eliminate any noises. I do just want to demonstrate how this slider would work. Right now it is in the locked towing position.

The way you can tell that is you'll see this green, let me just turn this a little bit. On the end of this rod you can see there's a green line that's showing. That means it's locked, ready to tow. What you want to do is if you pull into a campsite and you want to maneuver it into a maneuvering position you want to move it the 12 inches. You just pull the handle out and then turn it a little bit counter-clockwise and that'll move that tab towards the rear of the vehicle. What will happen is when this slides, you see these notches right here in the rods. When this slides and it hits those notches you can see that it's no longer, it's not showing red over here. It is showing green so it is locked in the maneuvering position. Now when you're done maneuvering and you want to go back into the towing position, same way. All you have to do is move your handle, pull it out and just move it towards the clockwise position, the opposite. Put said tab pointing that way. Again, it's showing red, which means it's unlocked. It's not showing green. If this goes back to the towing position you can see it hits those notches, slides the handle in automatically, no red showing. The green is showing so again you're locked in the towing position. Very simple arrangement. That should do it for the review on part number C16570, the Curt R24 Round Tube Slider for the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel trailer hitch with the 12 inches of travel. .

  • Slider Base Recommendation to Install Curt Q24 Hitch in Bed of 2018 Ram 3500 wo Factory Rail Kit
    Sounds like you have the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C16545-16025 and want a slider base to fit standard rails that you'd have installed in the bed of your 2018 Ram 3500. For that you'd want the # C16570 and you'd be set. You'd take the head off of your current hitch and attach it to this slider base and you'd have a slider hitch setup ready to install in industry standard fifth wheel rails. If you need a rail kit you'd want the custom install...

  • Will 2012 Chevrolet Silverado with 6-1/2 Foot Bed Need a Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch
    We would have recommended a sliding hitch in your 2004 since it's a 6-1/2 bed as well. Unless your trailer has a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box on it you will likely need a sliding hitch in your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado. If you already have a fixed hitch we probably have the slider base to convert the hitch to a sliding hitch. For an example the Curt # C16570. If you let me know the exact hitch you have I'll see if we have what you need.

  • Sidewinder Pin Box Recommendation for 2018 Grand Design Momentum 351M For Short Bed Turn Clearance
    Since your 2018 Grand Design Momentum has a Lippert 1621 pin box the Trailair Flexair part # LC328492 will fit and give you a much smoother ride but will not make a noticeable difference in clearance between truck cab and trailer. A better option for that would be the 5th Airborne Sidewinder part # RP61422 which fits the Lippert 1621, is also cushioned, but moves the pivot point back 22.5 inches so that you can tow your trailer with your short bed truck and fixed hitch. Only other way...

  • How To Convert a Curt A25 Fixed Hitch To Slider for Ram Pucks
    The only things that you would need to reuse the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16046 are the Curt R24 Round Tube Slider part # C16570 and the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider part # C16022. I know the Adapter Rail looks very similar to the one you have now but it is a bit different for the fixed/slider bases which is why you need to replace this as well but the A25 hitch head can be reused.

  • Which Slider Base Fits with Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitch Head
    The Curt Q25 hitch head is supposed to be paired with the R24 slider part # C16570. The head you have now would not fit on the slider kit # C16550. The complete Q25 slider hitch part number is # C16566.

  • Curt A25 Head Compatibility With R24 Sliding Roller Base.
    The Replacement Head Unit for Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 25,000 lbs # C16580 has a compatible bolt pattern to the Q25 head # C16565. The A25 will absolutely fit on the R24 slider base # C16570 according to my contact at Curt. He said the 16K rollers don't fit because they are designed to not allow for the larger head but the larger rollers like the R24 are compatible.

  • Roller and Rail Kit Recommendation to Install Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2013 Dodge Ram 2500
    To install a Curt fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed you have to have a rail kit. For that you'd want a custom fit kit like the Curt part # C16426-204 as it will minimize drilling and install time over a universal style kit. Since you do have a short bed truck you are going to need a slider to allow you to make tight turns. What you can do is take the head off of the Q24 that you have and install it on the R5 Roller part # C16570 and you'll have a Q24...

  • No-Drill 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for 2014 Ram 1500 Short Bed with Curt 5th Wheel Hitch
    If your rails are also Curt rails then you can use bracket kit # C16306 on your 2014 Ram 1500 short bed. However, with this kit there is some frame drilling required. The reason that I mention the Curt kit is because if you have Curt rails then you will need to use Curt brackets. Manufacturers do not test their brackets/rails with other manufacturers brackets/rails. This makes the capacity unknown, voids the warranties, and there can be some compatibility issues.

  • How to Convert Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to Sliding Hitch
    I do have a solution for you, however the Curt R20 Round Tube Slider # C16550 that you referenced will not work to replace the fixed legs on the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16245. These two systems are not compatible with each other. In order to convert the fixed Curt Q24 Hitch to a sliding model, you will instead need the Curt R24 Round Tube Slider # C16570. This will replace the legs on your hitch to provide you with the needed cab clearance during sharp turns on your short...

  • What Slider Base Does Curt A25 Hitch Head Fit
    We've had a similar question and Curt told us that the A25 head part # C16580 that you referenced needs the higher rated slider base part # C16570 as the bolt pattern does not match up to the lower rated slider base you mentioned.
