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

Yes, if you:

  • Struggle to see if your king pin is fully latched - color-coded system makes it easy to see from your cab
  • Go down washboard roads to get to your favorite campgrounds and need a little extra shock absorption to keep from feeling every bump

No, if you:

  • Have a hard time lifting heavy stuff by yourself - even though the head comes off, the base is still about 100 lbs on its own
  • Have raised side rails - since this hitch sits low in the bed, it might not give you enough space for your trailer to clear
  • Don't have the patience to perfectly level out your trailer when unhooking - the cushioned head can cause the jaws to bind up
Heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has interlocking jaws and a color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. Torsion head offers easy hookup and quiet, stable towing. Legs mount to Chevy/GMC OEM underbed platform. 1-800-940-8924 to order CURT fifth wheel hitch part number C16520-16025 or order online at Free expert support on all CURT products.

Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A16 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.

3-Point Indicator System

A16 Color Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator on the rear of the hitch to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green).

Curt rebranded this fifth-wheel trailer hitch by changing its name from Q16 to A16 in 2016. All features and specifications remained the same.

2017 GMC Silverado 2500

Just installed this CURT 16K ~5th wheel hitch into our new 2017 GMC truck. It took about an hour and it would have been nice if the directions would have told you what height each set of holes would produce. I'd recomend using some marine grease on the four puck joints prior to trying to lock them in. I really like this new hitch puck truck system over the Reese hitch with the bed mounted bars. I'd highly recommend this hitch if you have the factory GMC /Chevrolet puck system. The e trailer online help was truly appreciated as it steered me to the proper hitch for our new truck.

This hitch is fantastic, but make sure to keep it greased
Robin V - 01/30/2018

Thanks for the follow up Robin, I did want to let you know that Curt recommends using a high pressure wheel bearing grease like the ones that I have linked.

2017 GMC Sierra 2500

Very easy install. Looks great. Functions perfect. Easy hook up to fifth wheel. Perfect fit for my 2017 gmc HD Denali 3/4 ton with factory installed fifth wheel plate. Love it thanks. Just what I was looking for. Better than paying 1,000 dollars at chevy dealer for them to order.


We got this for our 2019 Chevrolet 3500HD. Received it a day earlier than we were told. It was easy to put together. The instructions were clear on what to do. We did have to adjust one of the bolts in order to get it to lock into place but other than that a very nice unit. We feel it was money well spent. Will definitely feel safe using it to pull our 2018 Open Range 370RBS.


Great product , Fast shipping ,Easy to assemble ,The only adjustment was to the locking cams . Keep up the good work.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Great Product
Great Fit!
Just like
everything I have ever purchased from e Trailer
I have purchased 4 or 5 hitches and several wiring kits and they are always great!

Gary W - 08/22/2017


Unit does what is supposed to. It handles our 36' Solitude with no problems. It clunks or chucks as some call it pretty good when getting on the brakes and accelerating hard which is an uncomfortable sound. The hitch indicator is nice.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado

Fit the puck system in my Silverado with minor depth adjustments. Very easy to use. The color codes allow you to hook up to the hitch with confidence that you are locked in. Very pleased with the product.


I have purchased from etrailer many times,great service,highly recommend them,very competitive pricing.
The hitch arrived in good condition,installation was a breeze,fit perfectly!


Great product at a great price!

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Order 5th wheel and 5th wheel tailgate for 2017 Chevy 2500 on 5/28 and
got the order on 5/31 took 2 hours to install nice setup.

2017 GMC Sierra 2500

Great price,excellent delivery couldn't find it anywhere. Best price of anyone.
etrailer came thru again,
Thanks guys.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I really like the dual jaw, with my last hitch it sounded like the king pin would fly out of the hitch when I hit a bump.


Does allow a little chucking but great hitch


Ordered, came fast. Hitch was easy to install.


Very satisfied with eTrailer. Professional advisors.


Great service, hitch arrived sooner than expected, easy to assemble,
would order from them again. Saved over $150 from local dealers.


Excellent hitch would recommend this quality product to everyone!!


Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I Love this item. I "thought" I rec'd the wrong item because I didn't see C16668 on any of the 3 boxes. Instead, I saw 16560. C16668 must be the complete assy. Nonetheless, I just finished installing it in my 2018 GMC Denali 2500HD Duramax. It IS heavy (258 lbs assembled), and it's made extremely well. Can't wait to haul my new 5th wheel once it gets built!!! Thank you!

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Got the trailer hitch installed and am looking forward to trying it out this coming spring. What's nice about this Curt hitch is that it fits under the tonneau cover. E-trailer is a good company to work with! Very courteous people! Thank you!

Its been a year since purchasing this hitch and all I can say is that it is great to not have any jerking motion on rough roads. Plus, it breaks down easily into lighter pieces to remove it from the bed of the pickup.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Good thing that put the Curt A16 box in a larger box for shipping. The outer box took a beating, but the inner box was barely harmed. Curt should have put padding between the two Ford OIM legs, they scratched each other a bit. The unit installed as per directions, and it looks great. Can't wait for our custom ordered RV to arrive. Thanks to for excellent review videos, and reading the FAQs helped me make my final decision as to which hitch to go with.


Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

First off I just got done installing the hitch and I hooked on my 35ft fith wheel trailer and went for a ride with windows down sun roof open and not a single rattle , clank , or noise from the bed of the truck with this hitch . It was easy to assemble but I did have one spot where the paint got chipped on the slider during shipping so I just touched it up . Very satisfied with hitch it latches automatically when you back in to it and the slider part works like it should .

The products have worked flawlessly no problems and thank you for checking back with me its nice when a company cares about there costumers. Next time I need any trailer products I will definitely be contacting etrailer.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

The Curt A16 hitch is awesome. It never binds, tugs or has to settle in before it stops jerking. Works perfectly every time and keeps the ride nice and smooth. It is light-years ahead of the Reese 15k hitch that we had been using for the past few years. I cannot explain how happy I am with this hitch and the service we always get from etrailer. A++ guys. You are the best. I will always keep coming to you for my camping and towing needs. Thank you.

Fantastic. I really love this product. It has made my camping life so much easier and enjoyable than my old Reese hitch which was constantly binding. Thanks etrailer. You guys are always there when I need you.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I was fully expecting a hitch in excess of 100 pounds to show up in a destroyed box. This did not. They had taken the Time and effort to cover the box with an additional layer of cardboard and it must have had a million staples in it. It was almost comical, you will need a crowbar or large screwdriver to get it open. However, when I did finally get the package open I found a perfectly un scratched hitch with no missing parts. I have not pulled with the hitch yet but , it does look like it is going to perform great. I'm using this in a 2006 ram 2500 4x4 short bed pulling a 2015 forest river Salem and it allows 91 degrees of turning due to the clipped corners on the front cap of the trailer. I will be curious to see how long the rubber isolators last before needing replaced and if they are readily available. Also the curt sticker on the hitch was peeling off when I took it out of the box, would be nice to get that replaced.

Could not be happier with this hitch. Have never had any coupling or uncoupling problems even in odd angle situations. Does not rattle or let the trailer chuck around. Easy to move. In and out of the truck. The powder coating is fading and showing some signs of surface rust but this is most likely due to it living in the truck unprotected. I have since moved the hitch into a 2017 ram 2500 with the puck system. I bought the puck mount and every thing bolted up nicely. I keep the standard rail legs under the bed of the fifth wheel should I ever need to pull with a truck that doesn’t have pucks. This has happened once when our truck broke down. Would definitely recommend this hitch.

We're glad to hear you're happy with your purchase! A light coat of a quality car wax will help protect the finish from the elements.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Ordered the curt A16 5th wheel sliding hitch with Ford puck mounts. The unit arrived several days early and I assembled and installed the hitch into the truck in just under an hour. Super easy assembly and installation. Thanks etrailer for a great experience.
