Fast shipping product fit perfect more than happy with it.Ordered the universal fit after seeing all the holes in my frame two with threaded holes I decided to order the custom fit glad I did . Now I might try to return other one.only dislike the over 200 ft-lbs torque my torque wrench don’t go that high,if it did I don’t even weigh that .Great product. 511695

The product (Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC - Carbide Finish) was exactly right for our 2018 Chevy SIlverado HD. It came so quickly that we had it installed before the weekend and could move our fifth wheel to its new site. We couldn't have asked for a more conscientious sales person. Chrissy was with us every step of the way to insure we got the product, with all the information we needed to install it quickly and correctly. Etrailer is a phenomenal company which obviously knows the importance of great employees. Thank you Chrissy and thank you etrailer. 520688

This is exactly what I needed to install my fifth wheel hitch. The videos were very helpful. My only complaint was that getting the nuts started and tight was a challenge. I still haven’t figured how to get a torque wrench on some of them. I think if I had been able to use a lift as the videos showed it might have been easier. 570564

Whew! Installing that Rail kit about kicked my butt! The reason why is all the trips I made from underneath the truck and back. The Rail kit is a very high Quality Product from Curt that fits perfectly in the bed of my truck. The hardware is also high quality. One downside is there isn't a lot of room to work as the gas tank on one side and the exhaust on the other side prevents easy access (gas tank in particular). It was very hard to get a wrench on the nuts unless you used a Gearwrench. After the install they are torqued to 110 ft-lb. The only way to do that was to put a 1 inch adapter on the torque wrench then put that in the open end of the gearwrench in the adapter. Then using a formula on line, convert that to what you have to ft-lb. Anyway It was worth it because I know I have a good product that will stand the test of time. 402242

I feel that the installation video simplifies the process to much. Attaching the frame plates with the bolt fish wire was more difficult than the video showed. I am to blame for the first bolt. We started on the left side and fished the back bolt first. I did not check to see if the wire would go through both plate and bolt once threaded onto the bolt. I just placed the plate on the wire and then threaded the bolt onto the wire and pulled or tried to pull it through the frame hole. The wire was "bunched" on part of the bolt and would not feed through the frame and the plate holes. I stretched the wire to the point I thought I was going to lose the bolt in the frame. We ended up getting the bolt back out and using the other fish wire to feed this bolt through. We made sure we could fit both the plate and bolt through together before fishing it through the frame. Once we did one the other three went a lot easier but we only had one fish wire to use. I had watched the installation video several times and played it while we were working. The video is good but it makes the process seem to easy. I would like to see the video have more details about this process and have 4 fish wire instead of 2 or tell people you may want to have two more on hand for piece of mind. 438361

After a year and around 7,000 miles pulling our fifth wheel camper, I love the hitch. I have not had to use the sliding portion but glad we have it if we need it

Excellent customer service. Item arrived as described. Would purchase from you again. Issue with installation (see below) Not sure if it is because my vehicle is a 2015 diesel but front bolts on both side were VERY difficult to reach. Took tire out and still very hard. The fuel tank is now a 35 gallon on 2015 so wondering if the increased size could have affected the install. Additionally the exhaust has grown on the 15's and gets in the way on the passenger side, it's done!! 131107

Last summer I made purchase of the A16 sliding 5th wheel hitch along with rails.the install took about six hours working by myself .following the enclosed instructions is important and saves time if you do it exactly as shown.I was very pleased with the delivery,it was prompt and no charge.that was great.the hitch is a slider which I think is important on a shortbed,could save damage to truck during maneuvers.my experience with etrailer has been really good and would recommend this company to anybody shopping for trailering equipment 634294

This was a challenge to install. By following the directions and other guides that were included I was able to install without any extra holes in the bed or other mishaps. Pulling some of the bolts through the frame was also a challenge. I would like to have the option of removing the rails from the bed without this being a major job. Your fifth wheel kit has done the task needed. We have pulled our camper about six thousand miles or more with out any problems. 599878


Comments

Once the bed rails are installed, youll want to leave them in place. The hardware is really only meant to be torqued one time, so removing and reinstalling the rails repeatedly isnt recommended.

Quality product...as usual with Curt. The nuts and bolts to this kit are as good as you can get. They’ve made it as easy as possible to install by customizing the fit. Worth the extra money over a universal kit. Installed on an 2019 Chevy 3500HD single wheel with standard box. Removing the passenger side wheel well liner (13 torx head screws) and removing the spare tire makes the install much simpler. Thanks etrailer! 595015

- C16411-204

Installation was easy enough with the assistance of your videos. I do find the height of the rails a bit low to accommodate the B&W hitch I purchased with it. This makes connecting the hitch to the rails a challenge when inserting the pins into the rail holes. 589526

Excellent product, perfect fit for my vehicle, arrived a couple days before it was supposed to. I did not want an "aftermarket" look, which is why I ordered a kit designed specifically for my vehicle. I did take the time to remove the heat shield to gain better access to the installation bolts. The biggest challenge was installing and tightening the bolts that go through the bed; there is not a lot of room between the trucks frame and the bed of the truck. The most challenging bolts were the ones on the driver side closest to the cab of the truck due to the placement of the gas tank. Trailer wiring was plug-and-play, hardest part was drilling the 2" hole in the side of my truck bed. 486736

Went on pretty easy. Mounting brackets aren’t marked so have to figure out which one goes on which side by trial and error. Also directions don’t say anything about installing the two center bolts in the instructions. I watched the You Tube instructions so I knew they were supposed to be installed. The parts list shows them and they are included in the hardware package 479637

Good follow up, shows a customer he's important to the company. I do like the product, the installation however was a nightmare that I've not forgotten.

  • Difference Between Curt A25 and Q25 5th Wheel Hitches for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500
  • The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16180 and the Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 are both fantastic hitches and extremely similar to each other. Both will provide a 25,000 pound towing weight capacity, an interlocking 2-Jaw system for a secure connection, and a 4 inch height adjustment. The primary difference between the two models is that the A25 # C16180 is essentially an upgraded version of the Q25.

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are doing the right thing by doing the research first. There is a lot of conflicting information out there so let me break it down for you and I will provide some part recommendations at the end. Basically, if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, the best trucks are going to be long bed 3/4 or 1 tons like a Ford F-250/F-350, Chevy/GMC 2500/3500, or Ram 2500/3500. Half ton trucks could work but are not nearly as capable as the larger trucks. A long bed for sure is something you will...

  • 5th Wheel Rail & Hitch Compatibility for 2017 GMC Sierra 2500
  • You can install an industry-standard 5th wheel hitch in any brand of above-bed base rails. All such industry standard rails (ISRs) will work with any hitch that is designed for such above-the-bed installation. Such an install kit from Curt is part # C16411-204. Now, in a truck like your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with the 5th wheel prep package you will instead use an adapter # C16023. This adapter drops into the factory installed pucks in the bed and provides the equivalent of standard base...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Silverado 2500 Short-Bed Towing Montana 5th Wheel
  • A short-bed pickup like your 6-1/2-foot-bed 2018 Silverado 2500 will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch in order to have enough turning clearance to avoid contact between the truck cab and the trailer overhang. Slider hitches come in both manual and automatic types. Since your Montana has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 16750-lbs I suggest selecting a hitch with a 20K weight rating to provide you with a good safety margin. If your 2500 does NOT have the factory 5th wheel...

  • Troubleshooting Fit Issues With Demco Hijacker AutoSlide with UnderBed Mount

You can simply change out the side plates with # DM6003 for that fit. If you do not have the factory rail kit/puck system, then you can use the # DM6003 to make your hitch compatible with industry standard rails and then use the Curt base rail kit # C16411-204 for a custom fit.

  • Is the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 Compatible With Bed Mounted Rails
  • Since your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 has a 6-1/2 foot bed, you will want to use the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16546 instead. This hitch is a slider so it will help you with turning clearance and it works with industry standard rails, like part # C16411-204. Even though the 5th Wheel Hitch # C16546 says Q24 on it, it is essentially the same hitch as the Q25 that comes on the 5th Wheel Hitch # C16069.

For a set of brackets confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 you would want the part # C16411. This is a custom fit kit that does not drill into the frame of the truck. If you didn't have the rails as well you would want the part # C16411-204 which is the rail and bracket kit.

  • I Need a 24K 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 with a B&W Gooseneck Hitch
  • I may have a solution that will work for you, but there are no fifth wheel hitches compatible with the B&W gooseneck hitch with a weight capacity over 20,000 lbs. If you did not want to completely remove the gooseneck hitch, then you could use a fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter like the Ranch Hitch Adapter, # AM3100. This adapter bolts to the underside of the pin box on your trailer at the king pin and hooks directly to the gooseneck ball. We actually use an adapter similar to this...

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
  • You are correct, there are 3 available custom fifth wheel rail kits that will fit your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500. The Curt Kit part # C16411-204 The Reese Outboard Rail Kit part # RP56001-53 The Reese Inboard Rail Kit part # RP50066-58 The good news is all of them will work with your Husky 16k hitch so you have plenty of options. The easiest to install would be the Outboard Reese kit part # RP56001-53, only downside is the rails are taller and would take up more room in your truck...

  • Does 2016 GMC Sierra 2500HD Short Bed Need Slider Hitch When Towing 2017 Montana High Country
  • If you only ever plan to tow your 2017 Montana High Country with the max turn tech nose then you would not need a slider hitch. A stationary hitch would work well and would be preferred since they are lighter weight and have less moving parts which means less movement. For a set of fifth wheel rails confirmed to fit your truck you would want the part # C16411-204 which will minimize drilling and install time when compared to a universal kit. For a hitch the Reese Select Plus part...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit for 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Double Cab Long Bed
  • You can mount your existing industry-standard Reese 5th wheel hitch in your new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Double Cab Long Bed pickup by putting an installation kit in the truck. If the truck does not have the factory 5th wheel rail kit you can use a standard above-bed base rail kit like # C16411-204 from Curt or # RP56001-53 from Pro Series. These are custom-fit kits that will reduce the amount of drilling and time required for installation. For an in-bed wiring harness you can use...

  • 5th Wheel Install Kit and Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel Short Box
  • A fixed 5th wheel hitch cannot be used in your 2015 GMC Sierra Duramax diesel with 6.5-ft box. Short bed trucks like yours must use a sliding 5th wheel hitch in order to have enough clearance for tight turns. In terms of an installation kit I recommend a custom type since this will reduce overall install time and eliminate the need to drill into the truck's frame for the under-bed brackets. These will mount to existing holes in the frame. I suggest the Curt # C16411-204. For a sliding...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness For 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • You should find a 7-way connector at the back of your Silverado. If you do then you can simply use a harness like the Bargman Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 50-97-410. This harness plugs between the 7-way connector you have and the harness that is plugged into the back of it. You then just route the harness to the location in your truck bed you want the harness to complete the install. I have attached a link to an installation of this harness you can check out.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • A good, middle-of-the-road 5th wheel trailer hitch that will work well with your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521.

  • Will Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Adapter Provide Enough Cab Clearance with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System # AM3200 referenced in your question does feature a 9 inch offset that will allow for improved clearance on short bed trucks. This, along with the tapered nose on your Grand Design Reflection 303RLS 5th Wheel, should give you the cab clearance necessary to make sharp turns when towing. There is also a formula that you should use in order to confirm if you will have the necessary cab clearance with your truck. (A + B)...

  • Recommended Curt Q20 Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch in 2017 GMC 3500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said the lowest height possible of the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch w/ R20 Slider, # C16536, when used as a slider is 17-1/2 inches. The hitch will not be able to slide properly if you tried to use it in the lowest position which is intended for using this hitch without the slider in a long bed truck. The adjustment increments are 2 inches so you will still have 3 height options. This is a very nice hitch and a good option for your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500...

  • Can a Sidewinder Pin Box be Rotated By Hand and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • A Sidewinder pin box would be very difficult to move by hand. It is designed that way on purpose because if it was easy to move that could increase the likelihood of trailer sway. As far as the angle you would have the same limitations using a Sidewinder as you would with any pin box. To compensate for awkward angles a hitch that has a full floating head (can move freely in any direction, not just side to side and front to back) would be the best hitch to use. If you choose to go...
