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. 1-636-306-4830 to order CURT fifth wheel hitch part number C74FR or order online at etrailer.com. 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.

It was a very easy install, only took about 20 min. Easy setup to my campers and worked very well while towing.




by:

Works well on my 2021 3500HD crew cab standard bed. I have never had any issues with turning clearance. All in all I am pleased with it and would buy it again.




by:

The hitch came in two separate packages, the legs and the head unit. The head unit was not In any type of box and had shipping label taped to it. I did not receive and hardware and was missing the pull handle. I am sure that this was a failure on UPS and not etrailer. I called customer service and they got the matter resolved.




by:

Easy to install and remove, i wish the clamp down levers moved a bit easier as i catch mu knuckles sometimes.
Other wise its great

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


Upgraded from TT to fifth wheel. Once I learned the basic operation I have had mo problems with this hitch. Rides a little high because of adapter for factory puck adaptor but still fits my tonneau cover which I also bought from etrailer.


Comments
I see you also purchased the Reese OEM adapter, part # RP30154
Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs
$503.14
. When using this adapter, the adapter will add 2 inches to the height of your fifth wheel hitch.

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


Great hitch and great value. Our trailer is 2000lbs on the hitch and 12000lbs loaded, so not a huge rig. My favorite feature on this hitch is the locking jaw system, it makes coupling and un-coupling very smooth. The slider (when rarely used) is very smooth as well. Most of our towing is in the Colorado mountains and I feel very safe using this hitch. Lastly, I know this is just aesthetics, but it's a nice looking hitch.

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


I purchased both the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs - C16120, and Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - Qty 4 - RP58093 for my F350 SD 4X4 Crew Cab Long Bed. I'm pulling a 30' Retro 5th. Wheel and at times I pull my tandem axle UTV Trailer (Double Trailers) . I already had the rails installed in my truck, this fit right in and I used the new Pins and Lock Plates for securing to truck. I have pulled all over from South Dakota and the Northwest. The Hitch has performed Flawlessly. No bucking, nor clunking. Very quiet and smooth ride. I would recommend this set up to anyone for convenience of Hook up and Disconnect, Excellent towing, quiet, and the security of the lock pins. I use Disc locks to prevent access for bolt cutters.


Comments
Excellent! Still working as it did on day one. Very solid, easy to use, and the unit is very quiet. Also no chucking. I highly recommend this product to anybody. We now have 2020 Cameo 12,000# unloaded weight. Pulls perfectly.

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!

Excellent!

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 .


Comments
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


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.


Comments
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.

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


awesome upgrade from the clanker I had before. I use bed adaptor rails, solid connection with the dual jaws no noise while driving. Very happy with my purchase. Only issue is latch handle safety pin wont clear kingpin box if truck is turned to far to the left for hookup or drop off.

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


The Curt system is really high quality. No issues at all putting the system in. One thing I do like is the position of the plate handle. It does not stick upward and is even with the plate. By designing the handle that way I can still cover my bed with my tonneau cover where other manufactures the handle was higher than the bed rail. The price was excellent and dealing with customer service was the same.


Comments
Fantastic! Real smooth when coupling and un-coupling

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


Nice hitch and great service from etrailer. The shipper must have dropped the hitch en route and it was damaged on arrival. etrailer arranged a replacement without question. This is my second or third purchase from etrailer - always easy, efficient and very helpful pre-sales advice and customer service folks.

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


Great product. Easy to assemble and fits perfectly in standard bed rails on 22” center. I have coupled up with it but have not towed with it yet. Have a short trip of about 400 miles coming up in about 2 weeks. So far I am very happy with the way it couples and slides. Unlike my old square tube slider this one is very smooth and the price was right . Ordered late afternoon on Thursday and it delivered on Monday. Great shipping time. I like everything about it especially the fact that when you uncouple it is automatically set to recouple.


Comments
This hitch is an outstanding product. Tows great with no noise. Extremely easy to hookup and unhook. I’ve had this a year and would highly recommend it. This is definitely a 5 star product.

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


I think it's strong enough, however with my Curt Turning Point hitch (which came with my Reflection 150 series fifth wheel rv) it's many times a bear to get unhitched. If I had it to do over I'd go with the B&W Patriot.

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!


Comments
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.

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.

Thank you for the follow up,I would recommend e trailer to anybody shopping for trailering equipment.

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


This is my first fifth wheel. I have a short bed so I got the package deal with the hitch and the slider. Took me about 5 hrs to install with the custom mounting brackets and rails for my 2015 chevy 2500 HD. Everything went as the instructions said without any issues. I have only pulled my RV with it one time just to try it out. Felt very smooth no rattles or pops as I have herd with other hitches. So far I like it a lot.

Hitch pulls great but access to bolts to assemble and get torqued were a little aggravating, purchased because a couple others we camp with use the same hitch and we’re really happy w it.

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


The box was torn and the bottom fell out of it when it was picked up. The hardware kit was not in the box. I called and spoke to a representative and the hardware kit was replaced and shipped. It is due to arrive tomorrow. Thank you for taking care of the missing parts.
