Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Kit Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part number C16411-204. So here's what our rails look like fully installed. They're going to allow us to mount a fifth wheel trailer hitch and pull a fifth wheel trailer. And when we're not towing with our fifth wheel, we can go ahead and pull the hitch out and with the hitch out of the bed we're only going to be taking up about an inch of vertical space in our truck bed. Now this is a custom fit application, so it's going to cut down the installation time and require less drilling than most universal kits. These are designed to work with most industry standard above the bed fifth wheel hitches. This is also going to work well with several different goose neck adapters, which is going to be nice if you don't want to cut a big hole in the middle of your bed. It's going to feature a carbide powder coat finish which is going to complement any color truck. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how we get it installed.

To begin our installation we're going to need to take a few measurements. The numbers are in the kit in the instructions and depending on whether you have a long bed or a short bed truck, those measurements might be a little bit different. So I'm going to go ahead and make a few marks so I know where my measurements are. I'm going to go across the bed, that way I know it's going to be nice and level. Now that we have our measurements marked out, we're going to take the flat edge of our rail here and we're going to lay it down right on where we just made those marks. And now we're going to need to measure our rail and the width of our bed and make sure that we're nice and centered.

Once you have your rail put into position, go ahead and find the center point and make any adjustments on where your rail needs to be. Next, we can go ahead and take a paint marker when we have everything centered up. I'm going to mark the outermost holes of these square holes, as well as the center one. On this bar, we're going to be marking towards the rear of the truck. With the holes marked we're going to move our rail out of the way and using a 1/8" drill bit, I'm going to drill some pilot holes where I just marked. You're going to want to try to get it as centered as you can, and we're going to repeat that with all of those marks that we made. Now we're going to come to the side of our frame here, and I'm going to take my frame bracket.

This is the driver's side. The way we're going to know the difference between the driver's side and the passengers side is with these tabs going in towards the truck, we're going to have this square cut at almost an angle. That's going to go towards the rear, and on the front is going to be more rounded. Now we're going to take our bracket and we're going to go up in between the frame and the bed, and it's going to mount right here. I'm just going to take some loose hardware and for now I'm just going to put it in the slots of the frame to hold it in position. To make sure that everything's lining up, I'm going to take my drill bit that I used to drill my holes and I'm going to poke it through, then I'm going to go back underneath the truck and make sure that I can see my drill bit going through the bracket and the bed of my truck, that way I know everything's lined up.

Once we do this for the driver's side, we're going to go to the passenger's side and do the same thing and make sure everything's nice and square. Now that we know that our rails are centered on our truck, I'm going to come back with a step drill bit and I'm going to drill out the pilot holes that I drilled out to a 9/16" hole. Now we're going to drill all the rest of the remaining holes out as well. We're going to take our frame bracket again now that the holes are drilled out and loosely put it into position. Now we're going to start out with an M14 bolt followed by a 5/8" lock washer, and finally a 5/8" flat washer. Now we're going to raise this into position and if we look at our frame, we're going to have an oval hole towards the front. We're going to be using the threaded hole here and lining up our two holes in our bracket with these two holes. So we line up our bracket. We can take our hardware and loosely put it into place. Then we can come to the back threaded hole and put our rear hardware in. Now we can do the same thing on the passenger's side with our passenger's side frame bracket. Now we can come back into our bed and we're going to take our mounting bracket here and we're going to line it back up with the holes that we drilled. We're going to take our hardware and take a 1/2" carriage bolt and put it through our bracket. Before we do as you can see here on the edge here, our hole is actually below the rib. They provided us with some spacers and we're just going to slide it underneath. That way when we put our bolt in we won't have to worry about crushing the bed, crushing the ribs on our bed, and it will give us some extra support. So anywhere that he rail is not perfectly flush with the rib, go ahead and put that spacer in and we're going to put our carriage bolts through all the holes that we drilled. Now with our first rail and hardware in place, we're going to come underneath and we're going to take one of these square spacer blocks followed by a 1/2" flange nut and we're going to tighten everything up with our hardware coming through. It might be a little bit hard to see, but this is going to be the end result with a plate underneath and our flange nut holding everything in place. Now with that one in place we're going to put the rest of our hardware and all the other remaining bolts. Our center bolts here, just like I mentioned before, is in a middle section of the rib. So underneath we're going to take our spacer block, we're going to go around the bolt like that, then we're going to come back with the square holed spacer and we're going to put it on top of that. And then finally we're going to tighten it up with a 1/2" flange nut. We're just going to put everything loosely in place right now so we don't have to worry about our hardware falling out. Now that we have our front mounting bracket and our frame brackets in, we went ahead and put our fifth wheel in that we're going to be using and that's going to determine where our second mounting plate is going to be mounted. What we're going to do is we're going to lift up on here and put it into the slots on our other bracket towards the rear. That will give us the exact location and then we can mark and drill our holes. Once we have our fifth wheel in place we want to make sure that our mounting bracket is square with our truck bed and it's not crooked or misaligned. We're going to go ahead and mark our holes. With our rear plate here, we're not going to be using the outermost holes, we're going to be using the second ones on the inside. If we come to the center, we're going to be using the hole that's closest to our tail gate. Now that we have all of these marked out, we're going to go ahead and lift up my fifth wheel and slide this out of the way so I can go ahead and start drilling my holes. I'm going to go ahead and drill my pilot holes again, and then I'll come back and enlarge them to a 9/16" hole, just like we did with the front rail. With the holes enlarged and drilled, we can go ahead and put our rail back in place. And again we want to make sure that our holes line up. If we need to we'll go ahead and use our spacers, but since this is on the rib we can just go ahead and drop down our hardware into the hole. Now we're going to put our hardware in place just like we did with our other bracket. First we're going to have our U-shaped spacer go around our bolt, followed by a square holed spacer, and then finally we're going to follow it up with our 1/2" flange nut. Again we're just going to put all of this hand tight for now, just so we don't lose our hardware. Now we can do the hardware on the sides. Now on our side plate we're going to take one of our square plate washers here. We're going to go up over the stud and then we're going to follow it up with our 1/2" flange nut. We're going to repeat the same process for all the remaining hardware. On the rear here you can see there's quite a bit of a gap on our plate here. To prevent the ribs in our bed from crushing, we're going to take more of those U-shaped spacers and we're just going to slide them into place right around our bolt. That way when we tighten it up we don't have to worry about crushing the ribs in our bed. With everything loosely in place we're going to come back and using a 3/4" socket, we're going to tighten down all my half inch hardware to the specified amount in the instructions. We're going to repeat that process for the remaining hardware we have left. When all of our 1/2" hardware underneath are truck torqued, we're going to come back to our M14 bolts here and we're going to torque them down to the specified amount in the instructions. We're going to repeat that process for all of the remaining hardware. And that will finish up our look at the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part number C16411-204 on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.

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

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

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

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

This is a great product, but the install time estimates are way off. I have been a mechanic in my own shop for 19 years and I didn’t remove the rear wheels or the spare tire (because) it wasn’t necessary on my truck. I have a lift in my shop and it still took me 6 hours to install it! Trying to hold the spacers while trying to get the nuts installed on the 8 outer through the bed bolts was ridiculous! Terrible place to get to, lots of bad words! I’m thinking that buying the custom kit versus the universal was a bad idea, I have installed both and it was no quicker with this kit and it was almost a hundred dollars higher. My install was on a 2013 2500hd. 729381

This is the second one of these that I ordered from e trailer. The first one I got at the same time as the fifth wheel hitch. I install on my 2015 Silverado 2500HD. I traded that Silverado for a 2018 Silverado 3500 Z71. Kept the hitch had to leave the rails. Great product and not bad to install. Took about 2 hours. If I trade again, I will get third. 678884

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

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

Outstanding place to do business with. Very helpful and prompt. Product was as advertised and delivered ahead of schedule. Install took more time than expected, but I am 65 years old and not as spry as I was. I'm very pleased with the final result. 489468

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

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel Installation Kit?


  • Will Airbags Fit on a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with 5th Wheel Hitch Installed
  • Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2596 will fit your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16411-204 installed. These airbags do use a u-bolt but they don't go around the frame like some others will. They actually just wrap around the jounce spring cup which the fifth wheel install kit does not affect. I have attached a photo of these airbags installed with a similar set of fifth wheel brackets so you can see how...

  • 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. The head on the A25 hitch is constructed of stronger material and addresses/resolves...

  • Troubleshooting Fit Issues With Demco Hijacker AutoSlide with UnderBed Mount
  • For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD with Factory Rail Kit, the # DM8550022 is not the correct fit. You will want the similar # DM8550034 along with the Installation Rails # DM6194. 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. I've attached a video...

  • 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...

  • Is PullRite SuperGlide 4100 Compatible with Curt Base Rail Kit for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit is compatible with your PullRite SuperGlide 4100 model but you do need the adapter 4409 from PullRite for them to fit together. I reached out to PullRite and was told this directly. The Curt has custom base rails which will mount directly to existing holes in the frame of your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 so no drilling into your truck frame is needed. Please note that the kit # C16418-104 you referenced is a fit for older GMC Sierra 2500 models and...

  • 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...

  • Is Hardware Included with the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Kit # C16616
  • Yes, the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Roller Kit # C16616 referenced in your question includes all the hardware needed to install the base rails to the bed of your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 and mount the hitch to the rails. This is an all-in-one kit and nothing else will be needed for installation. Just keep in mind that the universal brackets included with these rails will require that you drill into the frame rails of your truck. To drastically cut down on installation time...

  • Customer 5th Wheel Base Rail Recommendation for a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500
  • For a custom 5th wheel rail kit that fits your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 I recommend the Curt # C16411-204 which fits both a 6-1/2' bed and an 8' bed. This custom kit keeps you from having to drill into the frame of your Sierra and it provides you with industry standard base rails that your Q5 16525 and R5 roller are compatible with. If your 2016 Sierra doesn't already have a 7-Way wiring connector in the bed then you may also be interested in the Curt # C56070 to make connecting and disconnecting...

  • Can Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Used with Reese Elite Under Bed Rail Kit
  • Fifth-wheel hitches that use above-bed, industry-standard base rails like the excellent Curt Q25 # C16265 that you referenced can be used with the Reese Elite Under-Bed Rails # RP30868 but only by way of the Reese Rail Adapter # RP30156. The adapter mounts to the Reese Elite Pucks to provide industry-standard rails that are compatible with most hitches, including the Curt Q25. An important thing to keep in mind though is that the adapter features a maximum weight capacity of 20,000...

  • 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...

  • Will Reese 20k Slider Hitch Fit the Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit # C16411-204
  • The Curt fifth wheel rail kit part # C16411-204 that you referenced is perfectly compatible with the Reese 20k fifth wheel slider you have. These are made to the industry standard for fifth wheel rail dimensions which means a Reese hitch would fit them just as well as a Curt hitch would. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well. These are great rails that are quality-wise just as good as any other brand including Reese.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Will PullRite Model 2700 SuperGlide Work with Curt Custom Base Rails on 2017 Chevy Silverado
  • Based on my research, your model 2700 PullRite SuperGlide Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch is compatible with industry standard, above bed base rails. This means that the hitch will in fact work perfectly with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16411-204 that you referenced in your question. You will not need to purchase any other part or adapter to make the two systems compatible. This industry-standard base rail kit includes custom-fit brackets that will use existing holes in...

For instance, the linked page displays all sliding 5th wheel hitches that are suitable for your 2013 Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed.

You can see these measurements in the diagram I grabbed from page 2 of the installation instructions. You can see the instructions by clicking the provided link. If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in the truck bed, you can install one using part # 41157. I've linked you to install...

This is a custom fit installation kit which means you won't have to drill into the truck frame to install the frame brackets. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

  • 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...

The rails of this hardware kit are confirmed to fit Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky 5th wheel hitches as they are designed to match industry standard rail dimensions like what is in the picture I attached.

  • The Curt fifth wheel rail kit part # C16411-204 that you referenced is a fit for your 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD short bed and the Reese hitch part # RP30047 will fit it, but unless your trailer has a tapered nose designed for short bed clearance you'll need a slider since your bed is short. The Reese 16k Slider part # RP30051 would be the better choice. This slider has a square tube, which a round tube slider like the part # RP30075 would be the better choice.

  • 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.

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.

  • How To Install Fifth Wheel Hitch Rails In A Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • The installation of your fifth wheel hitch rails will be specific to your vehicle and will include centering the rails and your hitch in your truck bed. You will start by measuring the distance from the farthest back part of the bed, not including the tailgate, to the specific measurement for your truck and bed length to center the rear rail in your truck box (this will be in the installation instructions). Then use your fifth wheel hitch as a guide to position the front rail and a tape...

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...

  • Can 5th Wheel Rails be Installed Over a Plastic Bed Liner on a 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • Since you have a plastic bed liner in your 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD you will have to trim the liner in the foot print of the bed rails in order to install the kit, # C16411-204, in the truck. Plastic bed liners do not provide a stable surface which is why they have to be trimmed. All you will do is follow the instructions, linked for reference, to place the rails. Then trace around the rails, and then you can trim it with a rotary tool or similar. I recommend taking the liner out of the...

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...
