Ask the Experts about this CURT Fifth Wheel Installation Kit



  • Does the Curt Semi-Custom Rail Kit for a Dodge Ram 1500 Work with a B&W 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 will fit your 2008 Dodge Ram pick up and provide you with industry standard rails. As long as the B&W 5th wheel hitch you have attaches to industry standard rails, then yes it will work with the # C16303-200 rails.

  • Is Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit Compatible with RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500
    Yes, the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 that fits your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 is compatible with your RBW 15K 5th wheel hitch. If you don't already have a 7-Way installed in the bed of your pickup then I also recommend installing the Hopkins # HM42137 to help make connecting and disconnecting the wiring on your 5th wheel much easier.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Long Bed
    For a set of fifth wheel rails confirmed as a fit for your 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed we have the Reese kit part # RP30035 but the Curt kit you mentioned is not a fit. Check out the install video I attached for more info on it though.

  • Is Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Needed for Short Bed 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab
    When towing with a short bed truck like your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab, you will need either a sliding 5th wheel hitch or the use of a rotating pin box because otherwise if you make too sharp a turn the trailer will make contact with the cab and can cause a lot of damage. Since rotating pin boxes like Sidewinders are going to be much more expensive, you are better off going with a sliding hitch than the fixed Reese hitch you have. You can offset the cost by selling the Elite hitch...

  • Will 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit # C16303-200 Fit 5th Wheel Hitch for 2004 Dodge Ram
    The Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200, that you referenced, is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Series with 6 Foot Bed. This kit is compatible with Curt fifth wheel hitches including sliders. Since your trailer is only 4000 lbs you will be well under your hitch's weight capacity of 16K. The main difference between the Curt rails you referenced and the Reese rails # RP30035-023, is that the Curt rails are only a fit for the 1500 Series, while...

  • Will Curt or Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch fit Non Industry-Standard Base Rails in 2003 Dodge Ram
    The Replacement Rails for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Older Models # DM6014 will give you base rails that are not industry standard, meaning they would not be compatible with a Reese, Curt, or other model of fifth wheel hitch. These hitches mount 22” front to back and either 20-5/8” or 29” wide and will require industry-standard rails in your 2003 Dodge Ram. For example, if you wanted to use the Curt A16 # C16120 fifth wheel hitch you would need to use Fifth Wheel Installation...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2005 Dodge Ram with Short Bed
    If your 2005 Dodge Ram with the short bed is a 1500 then you will need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 as opposed to the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit # C16100. For a 2500 or 3500 same year Dodge Ram you need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16301-200 instead. Both kits give you industry standard base rails that are compatible with the wide majority of 5th wheel hitches out there. One other thing you may...

  • Recommended Custom 5th Wheel Rail Kit For 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 6 Foot Bed
    For your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 6 Foot Bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP50040-58. The Custom install kits have brackets that are specifically designed for your vehicle. They will mount much easier and include everything you need to install. I've attached a video of this installation as well as included the installation detail instructions. The custom install kits are vehicle specific and are far easier...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch For 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Short Bed
    Yes, you definitely can tow a 1999 Jayco Eagle model 211 with a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 short bed. I recommend going with the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16521 and the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram 1500 - Carbide Finish # C16303-200. You will need a slider because of the box length. If you do not get a sliding hitch or a rotating pinbox you will cause damage to your tow vehicle and or the 5th wheel. You will also...

  • Recommended Curt Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2007 Dodge Ram Short Bed
    To tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2007 Dodge Ram with a 6-1/2 foot bed you will need to install base rails in your truck bed in order to mount a Curt sliding hitch. Base rails come with installation kits and there are two different options for an '07 Dodge Ram, depending on the model of your truck; I will list the kits and you can select the right one. Keep in mind these kits come with both the base rails and frame brackets so you do not need to purchase them separately. - 2007 Dodge...
