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.


Comments
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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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


The hitch installed just as the video from Curt demonstrated. I suggest watching it before getting started as will make the process easier. I have not used it yet but I’m very pleased with the fit and quality of the build. I will adjust my review as needed once I have towed with it.


Comments
Still working great and an ease to use. Very sturdy feel very confident with the way jaws close.

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


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 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.

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


I was excited at first to get this hitch, but after using it since June 2020 at would not recommend it to my friends. It does not close consistently when trying to hook up my 5th wheel and does not open consistently when trying to unhitch. I'm very disappointed in the is product, especially since it had good reviews. I will be looking soon for another product to replace this one. It is too frustrating to not know if it is going to be an easy hitch/unhitch. I hope this helps for people looking to buy this hitch.

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


I have installed the A16 slider on a 2020 Chevrolet 2500HD with the OEM puck system and a standard bed. I also installed the Demco 6333 rails. The A16 was shipped in two boxes and arrived within a couple days, which was much quicker than I had anticipated. We are moving from a travel trailer to a fifth wheel trailer and the trade developed pretty fast so the hitch arrived in plenty of time to get it mounted in the truck. Thank you etrailer! I have not towed with it yet but here are my comments as to the install and overall impression. It arrived damage free and all the parts were there. The instructions were for the most part straight forward, but I would recommend watching one of the etrailer install videos. I did and it did clear up some issues in the written instructions. Although, I couldn't find one for the A16 so I watched the A20 video. A similar install. It does require some metric sockets. The only problem I had with the slider was the inside mounting screws. They require an allen wrench for torquing. I almost stripped one of the heads when torquing. I realized I didn't have the allen in far enough. My bad and just a caution. The A16 comes with a set of rubber(?) spacers that fit between the slider mounts and the rail. They recommend using them but state that they may not fit in some installations. Well, I was bound and determined to use them on mine. Without them you could see and feel the slack between the rails and slider. It took a good bit of work and greasing the pins to get the pins in. The hitch head went on pretty easy. Four bolts and the handle install and you're done. One issue I have with my truck and this install is this: with the hitch setting at its lowest height, it sits 19" above the truck bed, almost parallel with the bed rails. Some of that height comes from the Demco rails which sit 2 3/4" above the bed. Not having picked up the trailer yet, I don't know exactly where the hitch head will need to be. One thing I do know is that it can't go any lower. I also have a bakflip bed cover and when closed it just covers the hitch. I realize that if the hitch needs to be raised, the bed cover won't close but it's not that hard to remove the hitch head on the A16. Did that already as a test. There's also the issue of the cover being folded back and hitting the front of the trailer on a sharp turn. I realize this has nothing to do with the operation or use of the A16 but may be something to consider for someone in a similar configuration. Unless something develops later, I am at this point pretty happy with the A16. And etrailer has always come through, are great to work with and very responsive on the shipping.

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


Extremely pleased with the rails and hitch purchased from etrailer! The video and printed directions were very informative. One caveat though, the bolts inside the frame on the custom kit (2017Chevy 2500hd) are tough, 2 people are needed. We used magnet rods. The hitch(Curt A16) is great but the shipping was FANTASTIC. Ordered on 4/29 and received on 5/1. 2 days!!! Thank you Jane S. and etrailer!!

Did a lot of research and asked multiple folks with 5th wheels. Decided on the Curt. It does chuck a bit, but overall happy with the hitch.
