Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel C16722 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16722. This is the Curt Lube Plate for 5th wheel trailer hitches. This one's 12 inches in diameter. This will prevent scratches on your 5th wheel hitch's skid plate. This allows your kingpin on your trailer to slide into the hitch very easily. There's no need for any messy grease to be applied to your 5th wheel hitch head.

It installs very easily. You just slip it over the kingpin. I have an example here of a kingpin that would be on your pin box of your 5th wheel trailer. Just slip it right over that and then when this installs or slides into your 5th wheel hitch head, you can see it will give you the lubrication and the protection between your trailer's pin box and the 5th wheel hitch head on your truck. A few dimensions on this; again the overall diameter on this is 12 inches, and the thickness on it is 3/16th's of an inch. If you notice this one also has the special self cleaning grooves that go all the way around the lube plate itself.

That should do it for the review of part number C16722, the Curt Lube Plate for 5th wheel trailer hitches in 12 inch diameter. .

Prevent scratches on your fifth-wheel hitch's skid plate and ease trailer hookup by installing this heavy-duty lube plate. Simply slips over your trailer's king pin.


Amazing product. Never get yourself covered in grease while hooking up your 5th wheel. This product enables the King Pin to smoothly glide into the hitch.

Jeffrey F.


This simple, inexpensive product is the real deal. Allows Easy, smooth 5th wheel hook ups. The plate is tough. I bought 2 just in case but the one we originally installed is still going strong. Save the mess of greasing your receiver. You’ll be glad you did.

Etrailer Expert

Mike L.


@JeffreyF Glad to hear that!


Fit perfectly


I recieved the hitch today. Great quality. Arrived via ups no issues at all. I’m anxious to tow with it. Thank you.


Easy to read and install. Just received it although it covers my safety chain brackets, should be a easy fit!


Works great. No need for grease any more. Also took up the play in the king pin so there’s no more clunking due to vertical pin movement while driving down the road. Previous lube plate lasted 3 years.



Still holding up well after a year.


I have only towed my 5th wheel twice with it but. it works great. it is showing very little wear and did not interfere at all with hooking and unhooking.

Jim R.


After a year it still works, can hardly see any wear and tear


Haven't used this yet as I just received it. The only question I have is does it make a difference which side is up because, like other lube plates, it is not marked.

My rating is based on the fact that it is a Curt Product and if it does not work out I will resubmit my review

Michael B.


Great little product. I use it with a chain hoist to install or remove mu Curt 20k 5th Hitch.


I only use these lube disks. Once placed onto the kingpin, you never have to worry about lubrication again. Hands down over the traditional greasing of the 5th wheel saddle. No more grease dropping into the truck bed and making a mess. Excellent product. Highly recommend.


I purchased this product not knowing that the fifth wheel hitch already comes with one. I have not yet used this product. The lube plate that came with the hitch is not slotted as is this one and is 10" diameter as compared to this product that is 12'' diameter. Not worth the hassle of sending back. I hope to provide a review for this product after it is put through some use.


Like the simplicity and security of the design. Easy to install and seems like it will be easy to use and make towing much easier. Will find out next weekend if it does not perform as expected I will update my review.


Works as advertised. No more messy lubs........ At least on the 5th wheel hitch


I have used this for a year now. Honestly I can’t tell a difference between this one and the solid ones. It does what it’s supposed to do. I pulling a 42’ toy hauler with about 3000lbs on the pin.

Luke S.


Still working like new.


Delivery was fast the packaging was bad not heavy enough cartoon for parts to be sent in. It was all broke apart by the time it got to me. . No parts where missing though, Thank god. Brackets were little scratched up, we touched them up a little with black paint. I would rate the service at a 4 though. BETTER PACKING NEXT TIME


This lube plate works great and holds onto the king pin.


Works great!


Great Product made my trips more enjoyable without hearing the noise coming from the fifth wheel


Very good product at a fair price. Etrailer is my go place.


It's big enough to cover the footprint of our hitch. And it does not seem to fall off like some of the other models I've tried after you unhitched


Product works great. I am glad we do not need grease for the fifth wheel hitch. It was delivered quickly after the order.


Perfectly clean and no grease!


I called and spoke to a rep on the phone. He talked me through what would be good for my set up and gave me a few options. I placed my ordered and it arrived in 3 days. Product was as described and happy with everything so far.


Product fits over the lower end of the king pin fine but some hand trimming was required to go over the upper portion and seat correctly.


Used this ring comercially for a year. It has served well. And is still not worn out.

Fred M.


This is actually my second one, I accidentally left the ist on on someones pin plate. Oops. I sure dont have have any problems with this product.doesnt show much ware after continuous use.


Another excellent product from etrailer. Already used it once and it worked great. Wouldn't go anywhere else for my towing needs.


Excellent customer service. Hitch arrived in 2 days

  • Does Curt Lube Plate C16722 Go To King Pin & Is Trimming Needed
    There will not be any type of trimming to the hole required in order to use the Curt lube plate, which is the following part: Curt Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches -12" Diameter # C16722 This will go over the king pin and does go all the way up to the skid plate. You'll slip it over the king pin and just push it up to the skid plate and that's the only thing you'll need to do for the install.

  • Lube Plate for a Rota Flex Pin Box
    For the Rota Flex Pin Box item # LC328484 that you referenced you will want to use the Curt Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 12" Diameter item # C16722. This will prevent scratches on your 5th-wheel hitch's skid plate and allows your trailer's king pin to slide into the hitch easily.

  • Should Lube Plate Be Used with Lippert Rota Flex Pin Box
    With the Rota Flex pin boxes like the part # LC328492 that you referenced you still would want to use a lube plate. For a 12 inch lube plate we have the # C16722.

  • Replacement Lube Plate for Mopar Factory 5th Wheel Hitch
    You are correct that Curt does manufacture the Mopar factory 5th wheel hitches, so you can use either the # C16722 (12" diameter) or the # 16721 (10" factory lube plate) as a replacement. These are both 3/16" thick so they'll be suitable for almost any 5th wheel hitch, including your Mopar hitch. You'll want to measure the hitch's skid plate to determine which size will give you the most coverage.

  • Does Specific Trailer Matter When Choosing Lube Plate
    There is a lube plate that will work for you although the specific trailer you have does not come into play when choosing one. So long as the lube plate covers the entirety of the skid plate on your king pin you are good as it will cover the surface. I recommend going with a 12 inch diameter lube plate, either the Curt Lube Plate # C16722 or Reese # RP83001. If you let me know your exact fifth wheel hitch I can make a more specific recommendation for you. I've added links to reviews...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Pad And Lube Plate For 5th Wheel Hitch
    To keep from greasing the head of your B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600, I recommend the use of a Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 12" Diameter like # C16722. This pad will prevent scratches on the skid plate of your hitch as well as letting the king pin slide into hitch without the need for messy grease. I've attached a review video for you.

  • Is Lube Plate Needed When Using Pivoting Pin Box Like MorRyde Orbital Pin Box
    You don't use lube plates with pivoting pin boxes like the MorRyde Orbital that you have. Since the hitch and the pin box move together and do not rub against each other when the vehicle makes a turn the hitch won't get the same type of wear that you are worried about. This is because the pin box pivots instead.

  • Most Inexpensive 5th Wheel Hitch Setup for a 2006 Ford F-350
    The most cost effective option we have for your 2006 Ford F-350 is the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Universal Installation Kit part # C16116. This hitch and install kit combo comes with everything that you need to tow a 5th wheel trailer and it is still a great quality option at a very cost effective price. It has a 16,000 lb weight capacity with 4,000 lb vertical load limit. It is very unlikey you would ever be anywhere near this or the 5,000 lb vertical load limit you said you...

  • Which Lube Plate For Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
    Demco does recommend using a lube plate that is not thicker than 3/16" or grease on the skid plate of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550034 for protection and easier hook up of your pinbox. I recommend going with the Curt Lube Plate # C16722 which is 12" x 3/16" to ensure the whole skid plate is covered opposed to the Curt Lube Plate # 16721 which is only 10" x 3/16". I included a video of the Curt # C16722 for you to take a look at.

  • How To Choose the Correct Lube Plate
    Generally speaking, the lube plate will need to cover the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch. There are some pin boxes out there that will recommend a specific lube plate but most of the times this classification will be from the 5th wheel hitch manufacturer. The two most common sizes for a lube plate in regards to diameter are, 10" and 12". However, most of the time the 5th wheel hitch manufacturer will call for a certain thickness so you will need to check this as well in your owner's...

This hitch is rated for a trailer up to 31,000lbs. Do remember to ensure your 5th wheel king pin has a Lube Plate # C16722. This will extend the life of the hitch and cuts down on the noise without the annoyance of getting grease all over the hitch and king pin.

  • Picking Out Lube Plate for Fifth Wheel Hitch Connected to Lippert 1621 Pin Box
    Typically the size lube plate to use is recommended by the fifth wheel hitch manufacturer. Normally you want to match the size of the lube plate with about the same diameter of the hitch head's top plate. The 10 inch size is definitely the most common like the # RP83002 but for some of the Curt hitches they recommend a 12 inch plate like the part # C16722. Let me know what hitch you have and I'll see what is recommended.

  • Recommended Lube Plate for Demco Hijacker UMS Double Pivot 5th Wheel Hitch
    For the Demco Hijacker UMS Double Pivot 5th Wheel Hitch - Single Jaw - Ford Super Duty Prep Package - 21K # DM8550033, I recommend the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 11-1/2" Diameter # LC286160. This disc is 3/16 inches thick and outlasts standard Teflon lube plates with extra-durable modified polyamide construction.

  • Do You Need A Specific Lube Disc For The B And W 3500 Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
    No you do not need to get a specific disc. You just need to make sure it is wide enough to cover the 5th wheel head. Depending on your preference I recommend one of the following. The Curt Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 12" Diameter # C16722 or the Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Diameter # RP83002

  • Gooseneck Hitch Ball And 5th Wheel-To-Gooseneck Adapter For A 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
    It sounds like your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 already has a Gooseneck hitch installed, so the easiest way to adapt a standard 5th wheel trailer, is to use the: - Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset # CAB-C5GX1216.

  • Comparing the Curt PowerRide and A30 5th Wheel Hitches for a 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 w/ Puck System
    These 5th wheel hitches are extremely similar with only a couple differences. Both of them fit the factory puck systems in the 2024 Chevy Silverado 3500. I have linked a diagram below from Curt that lists the similarities. The main difference between the Curt A30 item # C16070 and the Curt PowerRide item # C36WR for your 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is the Wear Plates item # C52WR. These wear plates for the PowerRide remove the need for using lube plates like item # C16722. The handles...

  • Does Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Hitch Have a Lifespan & When to Change
    So the lifespan and when to change a lube plate doesn't have a hard and fast answer because there are numerous variables associated with how long it will last. The terrain you are going over, the weight of your trailer, and the frequency with which you use it are all really important and will impact how often you need to change it. You will know it when you take a look though, as the signs of wear will be pretty obvious, from small tearing or cracks to uneven wear, you'll know that you...

    Though I do need to start by saying the highest rated fifth wheel hitch available for a 2019 Ram 3500 long bed with the factory puck system will be the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP37FR, which is rated to 27,000 pounds, I can still compare the Curt 30k hitches for you. First, the Curt A30 # C66HR. The A-Series fifth wheel hitches have been around for quite some time and the second is the Curt PowerRide # C22ER. This is Curt's brand new fifth wheel hitch.
