Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - C16418-204 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Curt custom fifth-wheel installation kit with the carbide finish rails for the Chevrolet and GMC trucks. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 1999 to 2007 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 and 2500 models, with either the 6.5 foot bed or the 8 foot bed. On any custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year model vehicle, and it'll show you if this part will work for your application. These custom brackets, right here, is what will mount beneath your truck bed. They provide the attaching points for your fifth-wheel rails. These are custom-fit brackets.

They will mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame, so it does minimize the amount of drilling that's required, and the installation time is cut in half when compared with universal bracket systems. The base rails, right here, this is what will attach to these mounting brackets, and they sit in the truck bed, and they allow the installation of your fifth-wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. These are visible above-bed rails. These have a nice, carbide finish to them, as you can see. This part includes everything shown here on the table.

It includes the two above-bed base rails, the two mounting brackets, one for each side, even has the electrical box mounting bracket, all the mounting hardware you need and a nice set of detailed instructions. This kit will work with fifth-wheel hitches from Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley. That should do it for the review on the Curt custom fifth-wheel installation kit with the carbide finish rails for the Chevrolet and GMC trucks.

Comments
The 16A hitch had a problem with a bolt holding a roller. It case out twice and the second time I reinstalled it, I apparently over tighten the bolt and it sheared off. I called etrailer who supplied me with the hitch and they had a Curt Rep send me a roller and bolt. I installed it with lock tight and no problem since. In case any engineer cares, it was the rear drivers side roller bolt.

Very strong product I would give five stars except the instructions would not be good for an every day truck owner but the E trailer video is really good the only issue with a long bed is you have to drill 4 holes in the front of the frame two on each side and be aware if you do have a long bed truck you will need a big drillbit for instants I used a 7/8 but the overall product is good shipping was great could not imagine having to install the universal brackets and this kit made it so much easier 298145

Update I have probably put about 5000 miles of towing With this kit I have not had an issue with it still looks good no rust all the bolts are still tight

Bought this for a friend and we installed it in a few hours. Works great . Only needed a slight modification(Drilling for one mounting hole) that was not on the frame. Happy with this product and etrailer. 699849

Greatly appreciated the prompt response to help guide my purchase. The information also helped so I could have an informed discussion with the RV repair tech who was saying it would take 4 hours to install the Curt Hitch. With the information from etrailer--I knew what to say to confirm it would be a quicker installation.This is the second item I have purchased from etrailer and will continue to shop and learn as need be.

Installed this hitch in my 2007 gmc 2500 classic. The hitch material was made of good quality material. It took some time for the install due to limited room between the frame and hitch rail mounting brackets. Also I would recommend having an extra set of hand when it comes to torquing the bolts in the frame due to the heads of the bolts wanted to spin so I needed someone to hold a wrench on the bolt while I tightened the nut. Other than that the install went pretty smooth. 421361

This is the 4th hitch I have installed over the years so I'm not a novice. I thought I would order the custom kit for ease of installation. Was I wrong. followed the instructions to the letter. I ended up taking my truck to the dealership to drop the fuel tank to reach the front drivers side nut for the front rail. Also on the frame about midway it's double thickness. Tried using the wire provided to "fish" the front bolt in.. Was only enough room to barely get the wire in much less the bolt.. Bought a tap for $45.00 a threaded the frame instead. Over all I should have taken my old system out and put it in this truck. The nuts were welded to the frame and you just insert the bolts and tighten. 182286

The mounting brackets are well made and had all the mounting hardware. However the kit it did not fit the truck as described. had to drill all the holes in the frame except for one on each side. mounting hardware had to be put in backwards on drivers side and very hard to get to. install took 6 hours. 406744

Product was delivered as promised in 3 days. Packaging could have been better,nuts and bolts were all over in the box. The bag should have been taped to something. But at least I had all the parts. Took me 3 hrs. by myself. Dropped the spare, have a 6" lift so I was able to sit up under the bed. Couldn't get the heat shield off so i cut the box end off of an old wrench and slid it in to a 1/2 pipe I had, about 2' long. Was able to get everything very tight and reach each nut easy enough. Good thing I had spare parts from the last rail install. The front rail needed horseshoe washers on all 4 bolts on the outside. 1 in the bed and 1 below the bed to make it tight. This is in my 05 GMC Sierra shkrt bed. One other thing. I stuck the coil end of the fish wire through the hole and then put the bolt on it. A LOT easier. Would feel better with nyloc nuts as well, but it is what it is. Now just need to raise my trailer to match my truck and away we go. 283123

I just received the hitch. I ordered it very late New Years night. It shipped the next day with an estimated delivery of Friday before 8pm. I received it on Thursday about noon. Awesome super-fast shipping. It came in 3 HEAVY boxes, one of which was slightly damaged but I have not unpacked it yet. I hope to do so this weekend. I have bought from etrailer before and have no doubt this will be as good as the other purchases I have made. 464914


Comments
My son and I installed this hitch without a lot of problems. It arrived complete with all parts intact. It took us about 2 hours of leisure effort to get everything installed. The only thing we could not do was torque the larger frame bolts since I do not have a torque wrench that goes that high. One call to a truck shop got that settled for much less than it would cost for a new wrench.Everything else went together easily.

I wish I could give two ratings for this kit, one for quality of product, and one for quality of fit and instruction. The product quality, once it is installed is very nice and heavy duty. The instructions, and the fit on my 2005 GMC one ton dually leave a lot to be desired. They say it should take about 90 minutes to install. Plan on about 8 hours if you don't have a lift, and plan on drilling 3/4 inch holes in the frame rails. You better have access to a compressor, cut off wheel, 1/2 inch impact gun, 1/2 inch drill motor and 3/4 drill or reamer. This is NOT for the average "weekend warrior" with a small set of hand tools to install. 137020

2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, installed the Custom 5th Wheel Installation kit along with the Q16 Slider Hitch. Product arrived very quickly after ordering. It was shipped in 3 different boxes. One box was a little beat up during shipping, but all of the parts were there and undamaged. I watched the installation video once, then my brother-in-law and I tackled the job which took us about 2 hours. This was not difficult to install other than trying to get the 1/2" bolt through the hole on the driver side of the frame (the frame is boxed there). The included wire guide helped, but you still have to manipulate the bolt into the right position in a very tight spot. Everything turned out to be a perfect fit, no modifications needed. Also, I removed both rear wheels before starting which gave us plenty of working room. I have purchased from etrailer in the past and will continue to use them in the future. 448360

Instructions were very easy to follow, diagrams were detailed and clear. The installation itself is a bit of a chore but with simple hand tools and a helper to hold the carriage bolts inside the bed, the install took less than 90 minutes. 670509
