Simple, Secure Hookup

E16 5th Wheel Jaw

With a dual-pivoting head that offers 10 degrees of lateral movement, the E16 fifth-wheel hitch makes hookup a snap, even on unlevel ground. Once the king pin slides into the hitch, the auto-locking, slide-bar jaw secures it in place. A unique feature of the E16 is the rear steel tension bar within the jaw that activates upon hookup to clamp down on the king pin, providing a tighter grip that maximizes security and minimizes rattle.

Video Transcript for Review of Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch - Fixed Fifth Wheel - C47FR

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the Curt E16 5th-wheel trailer hitch. This is going to mount into the bed of your truck. It's going to allow you to tow your 5th-wheel trailer. This is going to be a fit for your 2020 and newer GMC Sierra 2,500 HD and 3,500 HD as well as your Chevrolet Silverado 2,500 HD and 3,500 HD, as long as they have that eight-foot bed with the factory-installed towing prep package.This does have the puck system on the bottom that you can see here, so that's going to fit right into that prep package on your vehicle.

So, it's going to be very easy to get these hooked up. This does have a sturdy steel construction with a carbide black finish, so it's going to hold up very well. It's got a gross towing weight of 16,000 pounds and a vertical load limit of 4,000 pounds, so it should do a good job for you hauling your 5th wheel.One of the nice features is the auto-locking slide bar jaw. That's going to provide superior security for you when you go to hookup. All you have to do is turn this handle and then pull it out.

That's going to hold it open for you and then you'll back your truck up to your 5th wheel. I've got a model kingpin here to show you how this is going to work. So, as you back your truck up to the trailer, it's going to make contact with this rear tension bar back here. When it pushes back on that, it's going to snap shut like that, so you can ensure that everything is nice and tight in there. It's going to hold it.

You're not going to have to worry about it coming loose. That rear tension bar works to put pressure on there to minimize the rattle and movement, so it's going to give you a nice secure fit so that we don't have to worry about it. When we're ready to unhook, we simply reverse that process and pull the bar out. It's going to release our kingpin and then we can pull our truck forward.We do have a pivoting head that's going to give us 10 degrees of lateral movement for a simpler hookup. So, it's going to make it very easy to get hooked up even if we're on unlevel ground.

This doesn't have to be perfectly level. It will accommodate different angles there. We do have Permalube pivot bushings that are going to help increase the longevity of our hitch and reduce the maintenance. We also have an anti-rattle skid plate that's very smooth, going to give us a nice, quiet ride. You can also add on a nylon lube plate, which is sold separately. That's going to help prevent any scratches on our skid plate and it's going to allow the kingpin to glide smoothly into our hitch during our hookup, but even if you don't have that, I think this anti-rattle skid plate is going to do a good job, make it nice and smooth, and a quiet ride.We do have an adjustable height range here. So, you can see our head is attached to our legs with this metal piece here. It's got several different holes in it that we can hook up to adjust the height. So, depending on where we mount our head on that plate, we can have a height from 11.5 inches up to 13.5 inches so we can accommodate multiple towing applications. We do have a two-pin head removal. So, we just pull this clip out, move the pin there, do the same thing on the other side, and remove the pin there. That's going to allow us to lift up our head so it comes apart and makes it a little bit easier to move. One thing with these 5th-wheel trailer hitches is that they tend to be very heavy.So, it's difficult if you're going to install them and remove them frequently, but having that easy removal, breaking it down into two pieces, it's going to make each piece, obviously, a little bit lighter, easier to get installed, and removed. As far as the installation, very simple. We've got the puck feet, as I mentioned before, that will go into your factory underbed rails. So, very easy to get installed. You can see we've got levers on the side here. Just unpin them. That's going to allow us to pivot those feet. Trying to find a good one to show you here. Do the same thing on the other side, remove that pin, and then by moving that lever, you can see a foot is adjusting so that we can get it lined up to go into that factory puck system on our truck. Then, when we have everything where we need it to be, we can simply insert these pins again to make sure that they all ride smoothly and don't get turned as we're driving along.This does come with a five-year limited warranty on the hitch and a limited lifetime warranty for the legs. I think this is going to be a nice 5th-wheel hitch for you. It is our entry-level option. It doesn't have a lot of the bells and whistles that some of your more expensive options do, but it's going to get the job done. It's going to make sure that you have that nice secure connection for your 5th-wheel trailer so that you can get where you're going and do it safely. So, that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Arrived in three boxes. The largest looked as though Ace Ventura was the delivery man. However all the parts were inside. Took me two full hours to assemble, install, inspect and adjust. Clearly a formidable hitch for my '19 Silverado HD with PUCK system. Thankfully I have a pulley system in the garage to install/remove the entire hitch in one piece. The weight on this hitch is no joke. If you take the hitch out during non-use a pulley or hoist of some sort is a must. This is replacing a Husky which had a slightly different locking system but the Curt is rock solid and will be a great hitch for years to come. Excellent price, assembly was a challenge but the instructions were very good. One problem: the included (4) rubber shims were too thick preventing me from inserting any of the rail pins between the rail and PUCK adapter. So I didn't use them.


Comments
One year and plenty of miles with this hitch. Solid and tight feel with little or no squeaking. Very happy with this hitch.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Poor, and disappointing. Hitch is not even close to tall enough for most any camper. Can’t even get a finger between the bed and camper. Description is not accurate. Be weary. etrailer is also charging me to return for a taller hitch. Looks like I’ll be purchasing somewhere else unless they can make it right somehow.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The hitch can be adjusted from 11-12 inches to 13-12 inches which is more low profile than other options. I recommend to take a look at the other Curt hitches that adjust from 13 to 17 inches tall that fit the OEM prep package of your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


First of all, etrailer was awesome to work with while I tried to determine what hitch I wanted, they get 5 starts. As for the hitch, installation was easy and while I feel the hitch works just fine, I would prefer one with "jaws" that lock. I would feel better if it did. That being said, I ordered this hitch simply because it was the lowest one I could find and after using it on several trip, it gets the job done. It can be locked and it easily opens and closes.


Comments
Update, I still wish this hitch locked. It seems to have some slap in it. It doesnt really hurt anything, however its very noticeable when backing the trailer up. The hitch pin feels like it kind of bounces for lack of a better word against the hitch itself because of how the retaining mechanism is designed. We camp in the summer and are not full time RVers. I would not recommend this if I was a full time RVer.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I have had my fifth wheel trailer since 2004 and have gone through 3 trucks and 3 different hitches. This hitch went into a 2019 Chevy Silverado and fit like a glove. Very easy to install. Very easy to hitch to fifth wheel. I am very pleased with my purchase. It is heavy to lift and move around but once installed it is a beast. If for some reason i need to buy another hitch this would be the one i would buy.

Product arrived as promised. The Curt C16515 was an easy assembly and easier install. I had to remove some bed liner to allow the base plate to allow the base plate to fully engage the OEM gooseneck fittings. I think this is a great product and will fit my needs to haul my 5th wheel.

Great customer service I ordered online on Sunday night and hitch was delivered on time Friday afternoon. It took me 30 min to assemble. No adjustment needed Only problem was the handle did not slip on. It looks like a large burr was left inside the handle preventing it from sliding all the way on. Extremely frustrating. After drilling and filing on the burr, I gave up and drilled a new hole in the handle so I could put the bolt threw... after etrailer sends me a new handle I’ll change my rating to 5stars

I received my hitch in the 3 days promised, myself and my wife put it together in about an hour. It went in our ram with no adjustments needed. We picked up our new 5th the same day we put the new hitch in our truck, works great and was easy to install, a little heavy but putting it in legs 1st then the hitch head was the way to go as instructed.

Super easy to install in our new truck. We used the same hitch in our old truck and pulls our 38' 5th wheel with ease


Comments
Every once in a while you have to fuss with it to unhitch. Loading is great. Not sure if it’s the level ness of the area when we are trying to unload but it doesn’t happen often

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


There isn't enough "play" to be able to install and remove the base. It might as well be bolted to the frame. The kingpin jams in the hitch and is difficult to unlock. I really dislike this hitch, but it gets my trailer from point A to point B, so that is worth the second star.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


We just recently took our first trip with our new Ford 250 and the Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch and had a wonderful time. It hooks up easy and was easy to install in the factory installed 5th wheel hookup in the bed of the pickup. I am including a few pictures of the hitch and hookup.

Review from a similar E16 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Doesn't operate as easily as I hoped. Sticks when trying to slide which means jumping in and out of cab many times. Also its heavy as it should be,but it doesn't come apart easily for removal in two pieces that can be lifted separately. You need a winch to remove it safely. Its a pain in the you know what. I like my old two piece hitch better. I could take it in and out in a few minutes, but it won't work in my new f350.

Hitch set up and instructions easy to follow if you're even a little mechanically inclined. Only major tool needed is a torque wrench to secure bolts. Fit was good, minor adjustment needed after assembly but otherwise a good looking product at a good price with a prompt delivery.

The hitch is easy to install and remove. It has functioned with no issues. The only thing I would change would be letting the plate swivel from side to side.

Checked around the local truck shops in my area and everybody was between 1200 and 1900 for hitches and then installation. Nobody wanted to install one in my factory package, everybody wanted to drill more holes. One call to retailer and I had a factory correct installment fifth wheel hitch for a third the price of the local guys. Awesome product and easy installation.
