E16 5th Wheel Jaw

Simple, Secure Hookup

With a dual-pivoting head that offers 10 degrees of lateral movement, the E16 fifth-wheel hitch makes hookup a snap, even on unlevel ground. Once the king pin slides into the hitch, the auto-locking, slide-bar jaw secures it in place. A unique feature of the E16 is the rear steel tension bar within the jaw that activates upon hookup to clamp down on the king pin, providing a tighter grip that maximizes security and minimizes rattle.

Was told shipping was delayed
because they were unable to find my fifth wheel hitch in their warehouse. The the hitch arrived box all torn up, missing the mounting hardware (universal installation kit...HA!) and missing key pieces and instructions.

Customer service tells me they're taking the day off do they'll look into it when they get back.

No help. No service. No usable merchandise.

I have sent your information over to our customer service department to assist you with your return.


It is the perfect 5th wheel hitch. And great price to match.


Customer service is top notch! Our slide rails didn't come with the nuts and bolts needed for install. The next day after our call to customer service the parts that were missing were on our doorstep!


It’s my first time installing a fifth wheel hitch. Install wasn’t bad took a little longer than I thought but turned out great. Had to buy a couple extra bolts but I figured I probably would ever trucks different and I used a universal rail kit. All and all I’m happy can’t wait to put it to use. Thanks for a great product


My experience was excellent with e trailer but bad with delivery. When the package finally arrived it looked like it was thrown off of a train and then the train ran it over. The package was obviously ripped to shreds and it looks like the track workers gathered all the parts and put it back in what was left of the cardboard box and then duck taped it enough to hold it together. It was missing all the bolts and hardware so I couldn’t even start to try and put it together. But e trailer agreed that there could be stress cracks under the powder coat of the hitch and it could not be trusted. I’m very glad they thought the same thing because if the hitch failed my kids in the backseat would be the first ones to be crushed. So I wrapped up the package with more duct tape as best I could and sent it back. E trailer paid for the return shipping and also sent me a brand new hitch which I think only took two days. Awesome company. The instructions supplied showed exactly how to install it. Very pleased with this product. Will definitely purchase from E trailer again. The only thing that I would tell the next person is to go and buy yourself some really really really good metal drill bits to drill through your frame of the truck. I destroyed all of my big drill bits to get through the frame, but it worked. My next purchase will be the gooseneck plate attachment so I can tow a gooseneck trailer if I ever come across one. Hopefully I can get it for Christmas lol


Received in 3 days. Good quality, easy to install. Instructions was good if you have common knowledge of what your doing. I would recommend etrailer to anyone who is looking for a hitch for their truck.


Very nice fifth wheel for the price works great with my little camper !!!!!


Shipment was fast, installation was easy, very affordable.


Over all the product is great. Very simple to use. I went back and ordered the custom fit rails for my vehicle just so I wouldn’t have to drill any extra holes in the frame. The packaging of the products was great but there was some paint and scuff marks but nothing to bad.

That is common for hitches to get scrapes and scuffs on the paint during shipment. We do recommend covering up the scratches with paint in order to prevent corrosion. You can use a matt black universal black automotive paint to touch up the chips on the hitch and a gloss black to touch up the rails. I have also sent this over to our customer service team in order for them to better assist you.


Good solid hitch for its weight rating. Everything fits together well. All necessary parts were included. I haven’t taken it out yet, but don’t expect any problems. The directions could maybe be a little more detailed in a “step- by- step” format for us beginners. My biggest headaches have been with my truck having stuff in the way. A lift would have been nice. I got by using a creeper for the underneath stuff. Can’t wait to try it out before snow flies.


This 5th wheel hitch has been very helpful to us and worth the money we paid for.

We still have it and my husband loved it. It’s been very useful to us pulling 5thweels


Everything fit perfect,about 3 hrs to install.looks great,thanks for a great product at a great price!!





Was exactly what I needed. Good prices and fast shipping and great customer service.



It has worked for me, very well. Was an easy install.


Installed it with no problems. Everything was there works perfect.


Lasted 3 tows had issues with it on the 1st tow should've know something was up with it my rv is brand new and only weighs 11k I replaced this 5th wheel with a better brand I recommend anyone seeing this to stay away


Good hitch and the installation kit worked great on my 97 Dodge. When I got my 2015 RAM I got the installation kit for that, it didn't work so great and I had to make modifications. The underside of my 2015 didn't look anything like the truck in the video. That's why only 4 stars.



Its all still working fine, however the spring that causes the latch to lock stretched out and came off. Fortunately I had tools with me to put it back on and its ok now.


It works great


This hitch was exactly what I needed and for a great price! Ill be using this hitch for a 5th wheel camper ( aprox. 7-8K pounds).



Still ticked pink with the hitch and price I paid


Good product as advertised, arrived in timely manner,. Shipping box was pretty beat up, stickers on hitch arms scratched up from parts in box not secured inside box. Tried uploading pics but get an error. Thanks Kevin



Good is far, a little sloppy where the pin goes, but just the way its made.


I love my 5th Wheel Hitch, At first i was hesitant of it, i never pulled a 5th wheel before. This hitch is so heavy duty and has been a great tool for major situations where i thought the trailer may possibly disconnect in harsh roads. It has never let me down or has never disconnected. Very Good Hitch.


As a first timer towing a 27' fifth wheel, I was really nervous. And it didn't help that the people who installed my hitch threw away the directions. Thankfully technology and YouTube came to the rescue with a video on EXACTLY how to hitch up. And once I figured out that the jaws have to be opened to accept the kingpin, I was well and truly set. The hitch worked like a dream and hooking up was easy. Yesterday, I did it all by myself using the rearview mirror. Thank you so much for a wonderful, easy to use product. I am no longer nervous about hitching, unhitching and towing.

Now if you have another product to help with the whole backing up thing.....


Great fast service. I always buy from E Trailer.


The hitch is well made and easy to use. My trailer only weighs about 6000 pounds so this hitch is plenty strong for my purposes. I like how easy it is to remove the hitch head from the lower bracket. It makes removal of the hitch when not in use so much easier with two pieces that are light enough to easily carry around. I would absolutely recommend this hitch.


Product came quickly in great condition. Installed as advertised and functions as it was described. Very happy with hitch, price and service.

Jim B.


It has continued to function properly and am well pleased with the product


Went together and functions perfectly. I bought the fifth wheel, the rails, the trailer brake controller/ wiring and the trailer wiring harness all together. It got o me in 2 days! One of the few purchases I made that everything actually fit right out of the box and worked. I would recommend buying from to anyone who needs the right stuff fast. TC
