Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Only need a reliable bare bones hitch
  • Have a relatively lightweight trailer that you tow only a couple times a year for short treks
  • Use your truck for more than towing a 5th wheel and need to be able to take the hitch out easily

No, if you:

  • Are bothered by chucking when coming to a stop or taking off
  • Feel reassured by getting a more overbuilt hitch to haul around your camper

Simple, Secure Hookup

E16 5th Wheel Jaw

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.

Video Transcript for Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Nissan Titan XD Towing Prep Package, part number C16515-16026. Here's what our E16 5th Wheel's going to look like once we have it installed. Now, this isn't just going to drop into the factory prep package. The legs down here are going to have three points and it's going to allow us to tow a fifth wheel trailer with our Titan. And as you can see, we've been using our E16 5th Wheel for quite some time. We've been towing a fifth wheel camper with it.

Now, initially we really liked it, but since our truck is a short bed truck, we did have a few issues on those really tight turns where the camper actually made contact with the cab.Whenever you do have a fifth wheel on a short bed truck, we do always recommend either a slider or a rotating turret, that way that the pin box will move back and will have better clearance. Now, our E16 is compatible with rotating pin boxes, you just need to pick up a separate wedge that is sold separately. But, whenever we do go to hook up, I have a pendant here that's going to simulate pulling up to our camper. And it's going to have a inaudible 00:01:12 jaw, which that bar is gonna come in, and there's a spring that's gonna automatically know that we're hooking up, and it's gonna lock that bar into place and make it really nice and secure, so we're not gonna have a whole lot of movement. That tension bar is what's gonna set that slide bar to come in, and it's gonna work in conjunction with it, making sure we're not gonna have a whole lot of rattle or movement inside.Now, our fifth wheel is gonna have a dual pivoting head, so it's gonna make hooking up a lot easier, even if we're on uneven ground.

The skid plate here, is gonna be an anti-rattle design, so it's gonna have a little bit of a cushion, so even going down some of that rough terrain, we're not gonna have too much of that chucking and rattling sound. Now, one of the things I really like about this fifth wheel, is that it's a very simple design. We're gonna have two pins, one on each side of the head, and if we pull those out, you can actually remove the head itself. And, it turns what normally into a two person job, into one. Then we can remove the pin, swing the arms out, and we can remove the base, for those times that we need full access of our bed.

Our hitch is gonna be adjustable here on the sides using these mounting holes, and it's gonna be adjustable from 11 1/2 up to 13 1/2 inches.Another nice feature of the base here, is that it's gonna have this green tab that both the legs are gonna lock into, and once that green tab is sticking out and both of them are in, we know that it's fully locked in place. But, we're gonna remove the pin, legs out, then we can rotate this the other way, and then we'd be able to pull the base out. The handle here, once it's fully engaged, it's gonna have a small ear. Along with the hitch here, we can actually run a padlock through to make sure everything stays nice and secure. Keep in mind, those are sold separately.

Now, as far as weight capacity goes, our Curt hitch is gonna have a 16,000 pound gross trailer rating, along with a 4,000 pound vertical load limit. Now, with those numbers in mind, you always wanna double check your Nissan's owner's manual, and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight.So if you're looking for a fifth wheel for your Titan, and you have the factory prep package, our current E16 is gonna be a good choice. It's not gonna have all the same features, and some of the feature that some of the more expensive ones have. But, it's gonna be a very simple design, and very easy to use. So our Curt is gonna make sure that we can get down the road comfortably and safely. That'll finish up your look at the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Nissan Titan XD Towing Prep Package, part number C16515-16026.

Product arrived as promised. The Curt C16515 was an easy assembly and easier install. I had to remove some bed liner to allow the base plate to allow the base plate to fully engage the OEM gooseneck fittings. I think this is a great product and will fit my needs to haul my 5th wheel.



by:

There isn't enough "play" to be able to install and remove the base. It might as well be bolted to the frame. The kingpin jams in the hitch and is difficult to unlock. I really dislike this hitch, but it gets my trailer from point A to point B, so that is worth the second star.

Nice hitch, clips into Nissan titan xd beds quickly. Very heavy.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Arrived in three boxes. The largest looked as though Ace Ventura was the delivery man. However all the parts were inside. Took me two full hours to assemble, install, inspect and adjust. Clearly a formidable hitch for my '19 Silverado HD with PUCK system. Thankfully I have a pulley system in the garage to install/remove the entire hitch in one piece. The weight on this hitch is no joke. If you take the hitch out during non-use a pulley or hoist of some sort is a must. This is replacing a Husky which had a slightly different locking system but the Curt is rock solid and will be a great hitch for years to come. Excellent price, assembly was a challenge but the instructions were very good. One problem: the included (4) rubber shims were too thick preventing me from inserting any of the rail pins between the rail and PUCK adapter. So I didn't use them.


Comments
One year and plenty of miles with this hitch. Solid and tight feel with little or no squeaking. Very happy with this hitch.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


First of all, etrailer was awesome to work with while I tried to determine what hitch I wanted, they get 5 starts. As for the hitch, installation was easy and while I feel the hitch works just fine, I would prefer one with "jaws" that lock. I would feel better if it did. That being said, I ordered this hitch simply because it was the lowest one I could find and after using it on several trip, it gets the job done. It can be locked and it easily opens and closes.


Comments
Update, I still wish this hitch locked. It seems to have some slap in it. It doesnt really hurt anything, however its very noticeable when backing the trailer up. The hitch pin feels like it kind of bounces for lack of a better word against the hitch itself because of how the retaining mechanism is designed. We camp in the summer and are not full time RVers. I would not recommend this if I was a full time RVer.

Excellent service and help. My hitch came much quicker than expected especially in these times. Every thing worked out, I have a new 2021 Chev 2500hd and wanted to stick with a fixed hitch. Heigth clearance was an issue, but I was able to lower the 5th wheel pin box enough to compensate.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Great customer service
I ordered online
on Sunday night and hitch was delivered on time Friday afternoon.
It took me 30 min to assemble. No adjustment needed
Only problem was the handle did not slip on. It looks like a large burr was left inside the handle preventing it from sliding all the way on. Extremely frustrating. After drilling and filing on the burr, I gave up and drilled a new hole in the handle so I could put the bolt threw... after etrailer sends me a new handle I’ll change my rating to 5stars

Bolt coming out on roller wheel, rusts very quick, and locking arms don’t pull that well or easy from outside of the bed

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I received my hitch in the 3 days promised, myself and my wife put it together in about an hour. It went in our ram with no adjustments needed. We picked up our new 5th the same day we put the new hitch in our truck, works great and was easy to install, a little heavy but putting it in legs 1st then the hitch head was the way to go as instructed.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Poor, and disappointing. Hitch is not even close to tall enough for most any camper. Can’t even get a finger between the bed and camper. Description is not accurate. Be weary. etrailer is also charging me to return for a taller hitch. Looks like I’ll be purchasing somewhere else unless they can make it right somehow.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The hitch can be adjusted from 11-12 inches to 13-12 inches which is more low profile than other options. I recommend to take a look at the other Curt hitches that adjust from 13 to 17 inches tall that fit the OEM prep package of your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I have had my fifth wheel trailer since 2004 and have gone through 3 trucks and 3 different hitches.
This hitch went into a 2019 Chevy Silverado and fit like a glove. Very easy to install. Very easy to hitch to fifth wheel. I am very pleased with my purchase. It is heavy to lift and move around but once installed it is a beast. If for some reason i need to buy another hitch this would be the one i would buy.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Super easy to install in our new truck. We used the same hitch in our old truck and pulls our 38' 5th wheel with ease


Comments
Every once in a while you have to fuss with it to unhitch. Loading is great. Not sure if it’s the level ness of the area when we are trying to unload but it doesn’t happen often

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


We just recently took our first trip with our new Ford 250 and the Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch and had a wonderful time. It hooks up easy and was easy to install in the factory installed 5th wheel hookup in the bed of the pickup. I am including a few pictures of the hitch and hookup.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Doesn't operate as easily as I hoped. Sticks when trying to slide which means jumping in and out of cab many times. Also its heavy as it should be,but it doesn't come apart easily for removal in two pieces that can be lifted separately. You need a winch to remove it safely. Its a pain in the you know what. I like my old two piece hitch better. I could take it in and out in a few minutes, but it won't work in my new f350.

Nice hitch

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Hitch set up and instructions easy to follow if you're even a little mechanically inclined. Only major tool needed is a torque wrench to secure bolts. Fit was good, minor adjustment needed after assembly but otherwise a good looking product at a good price with a prompt delivery.

It's a decent hitch but the height adjustment is not good on a F-350,also it has a lot of play when stopping and starting

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Checked around the local truck shops in my area and everybody was between 1200 and 1900 for hitches and then installation. Nobody wanted to install one in my factory package, everybody wanted to drill more holes. One call to retailer and I had a factory correct installment fifth wheel hitch for a third the price of the local guys. Awesome product and easy installation.

  • Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Titan XD with Factory Rail Kit
    Your 2017 Nissan Titan XD long bed should have the factory gooseneck hitch installed in the bed of it. Which means to install a 16k Curt fifth wheel hitch all you need is the # C16515-16026 which is a Curt E16 like what you mentioned.

  • Recommended Hitch for Trial 5th Wheel Towing Using 2017 Nissan Titan XD Long Bed w/OEM Tow Package
    I would go with the A16 5th wheel hitch if your 5th wheel trial time will be fairly extensive. However, if you only plan on towing a few times then the Demco Recon is the way to go as it is a cost-effective option that will give you a good idea of what 5th wheel towing is like. If you feel more comfortable with the 3-point installation of the Curt hitches then I recommend using the Curt A16 # C16520-16026 over the E-Series 16K # C16515-16026. the A-Series uses an updated dual-jaw system...

    The Curt # C16515-16026 would be compatible with both the factory puck system (as long as it's the 3 puck system, not just the factory gooseneck hitch) in your truck be as well as the Lippert Turning Point rotating pin box. This being said, the Curt #16 uses a slide bar type jaw system, which will allow a fair amount of movement of the king pin once it's locked into the hitch. This type of jaw system is found on what I'd call an entry level hitch. This movement will result in a fair amount...

  • Lightest 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Nissan Titan XD with Factory Gooseneck and Revolution Pin Box
    The easiest and lightest 5th wheel hitch available that will attach to the factory gooseneck pucks in your 2017 Nissan Titan XD and is compatible with a rotating pin box is the Curt E16 # C16515-16026. This hitch features an overall weight of 195 pounds but one of its benefits is that it uses a 2-pin head removal design that lets you easily take the hitch out of the bed in a couple of more manageable pieces. For reference the head assembly by itself weighs 68 pounds and the base weighs...
