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.

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. 337068

This hitch is fantastic, but make sure to keep it greased

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.

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. 629699

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. 541758

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. 529391

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. 443501

Review from a similar A16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Let me say this: I have pulled and used a fifth wheel for over 20 years This Curt 16 is superior to all. Easy hook up, secure loading. It tells you when you are ready to load, loaded and lock the pin and how to uncouple with ease. It came with Ford legs and with works so good in my factory equipped Hitch in the bed. Great looking and compact. Excellent way to go. Very pleased and Thank You for suggesting the hitch. 353209

Review from a similar A16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Good product. Fits my truck and works well pulling my 12,000 lb 5th wheel. The only complaint is the rubber wedge does not hold up against chucking of the hitch. It is already degraded and needs replacing. Otherwise a solid hitch. 609310

Review from a similar A16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Heavy, but easy to assemble and install. Great service from etrailer.com from order to shipping. This is a heavy slider, so moving it out of the truck bed is challenging. Works as advertised. Good choice for short-bed pickup trucks. 525134


Comments
Slider hitch works well for our setup. Add a little grease and it is quiet when moving out of or into tow position.

Review from a similar A16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


"BEWARE"I read many reviews on this hitch, all but one were very good. The one negative review stated that his problem with a noisy hitch was quickly resolved with a replacement. My experience has not been good, I too had a noisy hitch, contacted Etrailer and they sent a replacement. Second hitch was just as noisy. Contacted Curt directly and am told this slop in hitch is by design! Their fix is to disconnect the factory brake controls and install theirs. Why was I not informed before purchase that this hitch bangs around unless you purchase an aftermarket control. It is very unnerving to know that your king pin is extremely loose within the hitch, banging back and forth on acceleration and stopping. 477715

The hitch has worked very well and the swivel head makes for a smooth ride. My only complaint is that the stickers that indicate locked positions. Faded after a month and are now white.....but not a big deal. 411807

Review from a similar A16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Overall I am impressed with the product and the service etrailer provides. The shipping was fast and the prices vs local competitors was cheaper. I actually installed the same day I received the hitch. Unfortunately my fith wheel head has a small dent in it, I would assume from shipping, and my hardware bag was ripped open scattering throughout the box. To my surprise no hardware was missing. The dent did aggravate me a little as to the price of the product, but will not effect the performance. Etrailer did double box all three packages the shipped which was nice, however I'm not sure they'll make a profit with the amount of staples used in packaging haha. Overall happy to have great reviews on great products to help aid in the decision of my purchase of the Curt slider 16k fith wheel. Fits nicely in my 2013 Silverado 2500 short bed with my fold back cover still functioning when not in use. I did find during installation that the heat shield worked best for me bent up than cut, also I did remove the wheels for easier access but not a necessity. There might need to be clarity on the hardware not being used via instructions, and on the bed rib spacers on the diagram. Very pleased with my purchase and will recommend etrailer in the future. 479630

Review from a similar A16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Customer service for product selection and order entry were excellent and focused on my interests and needs. The hitch, custom installation kit, and harness were shipped very quickly and arrived sooner than expected. Everything arrived in excellent condition. Assembly and installation instructions were very clear and specific, and I was able to assemble and install everything with no problems and in a very reasonable amount of time. Total cost was roughly half of what it would have been if I had purchased the products and had them installed by a dealer. I am very satisfied with my experience dealing with etrailer.com, and would highly recommend them to anyone shopping for towing products. 294100
