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.


Three-Point Indicator System

A16 Color Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator - either the one on the handle or the one on the hitch itself - 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.

I have this hitch in a 2016 2500 Ram 6.7L diesel. I am pulling a 12,000 lb 5th wheel and don't have the chatter that I had before with a different hitch. This is a very strong hitch. The only negative that I have on this hitch is that it is difficult to close the hitch jaws when the hitch is not in use. It anyone else has had the same problem and has found a cure for this please let others know what you are doing. Happy towing. 771270

Have been waiting for a 5th mount for my 2014 RAM that wasn't over priced. The price point is great and the mount is much better than I thought it would be, for quality. I was able to install it in under an hour. The manual that came with it was clear and easy to follow. BTW Ashley , the person I spoke to on the phone realy knew what she was doing and what questions to ask to make sure I bought the correct hitch and would be happy with it. Thank You Ashley! 334881

I have really been enjoying the Curt 5th wheel hitch. Easy to install and remove. Great quality and instructions that are easy to understand. I looked at hitches that cost a lot more but didnt offer anymore than the Curt.I put off buying a 5th wheel hitch for about 2 years because the one that fit my truck from RAM was about three times to cost!I also found out that the hitch is made about 30 miles from my home

Product was very easy and straight forward to install. Great price on this. Lighting shipping as always with Etrailer. It's Important to have a second hand as I fumbled with it myself hunched down in the garage due to rain. This item assembled weighs 178lbs. Not easy to dead lift on your knees. Due to time constraint on my part I had to do it all by myself. Work safely. As it's important to know how to use leverage to move weight. Take your time. That is the most important part. Double check your work. Even when coupling and uncoupling. Hook up is easy. Make sure your tail gate is off or down when coupling and uncoupling. Save dents/damage in your tail gate. Make sure to put the safety pin in the handle to keep it from uncoupling going down the road. It will be used to pull a 5th wheel camper to campgrounds, Florida and South Dakota to visit family and friends a couple times a year. 289307

Delivery was fast less than a week,product work for application. Install was straight forward took 45 min or so once I figured out what the direction we're trying to explain. Have a 20015 2500 Ram with factory pucks fit was real easy. Think the direction could have been clearer with better illistration. Have 2014 Cougars high Mt. 33ft needed to set the hitch at lowest level on mount but think it will work just fine. Bought c16520_c16021 Wish I would have gotten this first I was told that I could use my old fifth wheel with pitchers frame adaptor but when I install it it made the hitch sit to high for the trailer and would not work with my old fifth wheel hitch. 227626

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • Lightest Weight Fifth Wheel Hitch That Fits 2019 Ram 2500 OEM Rail Kit
    The lightest weight fixed hitch we offer that fits directly to the OEM rail kit of your 2019 Ram 2500 is the Curt A16 # C16520-16021 which weighs 179 lbs and even has easier to use grab handles on the side of the hitch. Then for a wedge to lock it to your pin box you'd want the # RP31016.

  • Fit of Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Hitch C16520-16021 In Factory Pucks on 2020 Ram 2500
    Curt confirms that the # C16520-16021 is indeed a fit for the factory puck system in your 2020 Ram 2500. The A16 is an outstanding choice, mainly because its interlocking jaw holds the king pin very tightly, which really improves ride quality by reducing bouncing and chucking caused when the king pin moves around in the hitch jaw. You'll also need the Curt A-Series specific wedge, part # RP31016. The product description for the wedge states that it's for the Reese Sidewinder, but it...

  • Option to Lower Nose of Trailer Using Curt A20 Hitch for Ram Rail Kits
    Typically you can raise the pin box in the frame brackets of the trailer to allow the nose of the trailer to sit lower. I would see if you can do that as that might be an easy fix. The Curt A16 hitch for Ram rail kits part # C16520-16021 has a height adjustment range of 14 to 18 inches so if your is measuring 20 inches that to me seems like yours isn't in the lowest position or you are using the hitch designed for industry standard rails and a rail kit adapter part # RP30154 which would...

  • Can Curt A16 Fixed Hitch for Ram Rail Kit be Used in Short Bed 2020 Ram 2500 with LCI Turning Point
    Since your 2021 Rockwood 2896MB has a LCI turning point pin box that would mean you could use a fixed hitch like this and not worry about turning clearance issues since the pin box provides the turning clearance. Then for a wedge you'd want the # C16992 and you'd be set.

  • Which is Better Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ram 2500 Rail Kit A16 or E16
    For the OEM rail kit of your 2020 Ram 2500 long bed you are going to have a much nicer towing experience with the Curt A16 fifth wheel hitch part # C16520-16021 over the E16 # C16515-16021 because of the much nicer jaw design of the A-Series hitch. It provides 360 degrees of contact with the king pin of the trailer whereas the E16 only uses a slide bar to hold it in place which allows quite a bit more movement which translates into noise and "chucking" when towing.

  • How to Determine Clearance for Towing a Fifth Wheel with 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Kit
    To determine if you're going to have clearance you're going to have to do some measuring. Since you have the factory rail kit on your 2016 Ram 2500 with the 6 foot bed, you can find the center point between the pucks in your truck bed. This will be where the jaws of the fifth wheel hitch will be. With your tail gate open, measure from this point to the end of your tail gate, and measure on your trailer from the king pin to the body of the trailer. This will tell you if you have the distance...

  • Will 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500 Prep Package 8 foot Bed Work with 6-1/2 foot Bed
    The footprint for the factory prep package on the 2017 Ram with a 6-1/2 foot or 8 foot bed is the same. The reason why we have the sliding 5th wheel hitches listed for the short bed version is because with a standard pin box (which most people have) you will want to use a sliding version to avoid hitting your cab with your trailer. The 8 foot bed doesn't have the same clearance issues hence the stationary 5th wheel hitch options. I believe that the pin box you are talking about is the...

    It looks like you have done quite a bit of research already, so I'll try to fill in the gaps. It is hard to choose one particular setup that is best for any towing situation because there are so many different truck and trailer combinations that you can choose from.

    The Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitch, # C16520-16021, is compatible with a TrailAir pin box as well as other air ride pin boxes. It is not compatible with Sidewinder or Revolution pin boxes because the hitch has a very wide jaw design that Sidewinder has not been able to come up with a wedge that would work. The pivoting of the Sidewinder would also damage the cushioning of the Q series Curt hitches as well.

This wedge bolts onto your Revolution to prevent the king pin from rotating in your Curt fifth wheel hitch.

In order to choose the correct model, you will need to know the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the trailer and then choose the option that exceeds this by a few thousand pounds.

    The Curt A16, part # C16520-16021, is a great choice for your long bed 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory fifth wheel prep package. The interlocking jaws for reducing the rattle and the torsion head make it Curt's best hitch. It fits right into your truck's puck system and has a max capacity of 16,000 pounds. If you'd like a little more peace of mind you can upgrade to the A20, part # C16044. It has a 20,000 pound capacity to give you a little more breathing room, so to speak.

  • Recommended 16K Curt 5th Wheel System to be Compatible with Reese Sidewinder on a 2014 Ram 3500
    Yes, you are correct the Q16 head is just now being renamed as the A16. To make the Reese Revolution Pin Box compatible with the 16K Curt # C16520-16021 on your 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit you will need the # C16992 wedge. I have linked the above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.

  • All 5th Wheel Hitch Options for Factory RAM Towing Prep Package
    There are several 5th wheel hitches that will fit the factory RAM towing prep package hole pattern. I'll list out the options we offer below along with a few recommendations. The article you found was likely an old article. RAM sort of botched the release of their OEM 5th wheel package back in 2012/2013 and they started selling trucks with the factory mounting kit before a hitch was actually designed and released. The trucks were sold for about 6 months before a hitch was actually released....

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitches for Factory Pucks System in a 2018 Ram 2500 Long Bed
    For your 2018 Ram 2500 long bed with the factory 5th wheel puck system the B&W Companion # BWRVK3600 is a direct fit. You could also use Curt hitch # C16049, # C16545-16021, or # C16046 rated for 24K, # C16044 or # C16530-16021 rated for 20K, or # C16520-16021 rated for 16K. Reese has hitch # RP30160 rated for 20K. The B&W hitch is the most popular but the Curt hitches have cushioned heads for improved ride quality. I have linked some video reviews for you.

  • Weights of 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches Designed to Fit Factory Pucks on 2017 Ram 2500 Long Bed
    We have a large selection of fifth-wheel hitches that will work well on your 2017 Ram 2500 with the 8 foot bed. Based on the hitches you were looking at, it appears that your Ram features the factory puck system. Please just let me know if this is not the case. I have listed below the weights of the hitches available that will attach directly to the factory pucks without the need for a separate adapter. Reese OEM 5th Wheel Hitch - 20K # RP30160: 186 pounds Curt Q24 - 24K # C16545-16021:...

  • Is a Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Compatible with Lippert Turning Point Pin Box and Universal Wedge
    I would not recommend using Curt E16 hitch # C16515-16021 with a Lippert Turning Point pin box. The slide-bar jaw design of the hitch is not really ideal for the forces involved with this type of pin box. Instead I recommend the A16 # C16520-16021. It will provide a more safe and secure jaw and cushioned head so it is a fantastic upgrade. In either case the universal wedge included with the Turning Point pin box won't provide the best fit. I recommend using custom wedge # RP31016 with...

  • Lightweight 5th Wheel Hitch Option for a 2018 Ram 3500 Short Bed with the Factory Prep Package
    I do have a really good option for you but the two you listed cannot be done safely. The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part # RP94720 cannot be used on your 2018 Ram 3500 because it has a short bed. If you were to use the Reese Goose Box the loft of your trailer would likely come into contact with the cab of your vehicle causing thousands in damage. The Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # DM8550045 cannot be used with a rotating...
