Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - C16441-204 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit with the Carbide Finish Rail for the Ford F-150 truck. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2004 to 2014 Ford F-150 trucks with either the 6 1/2 foot bed or the 8 foot bed. Now 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 will show if this will work for your application. Now these custom brackets right here are designed to mount beneath your truck bed. They provide the attachment points for your fifth wheel rails to attach to. Now these are custom fit brackets.

They mount to existing holes in your vehicles frame. This will help minimize the amount of drilling that's required and the installation time is cut in half when compared with the universal bracket systems. Now the base rails themselves right here, these are what will attach to the mounting brackets. The base rails are what will sit in your truck bed and allows the installation of your fifth wheel trailer hitch to your vehicle. These are visible above bed rails. Now this part number happens to have nice carbide finish to them and this part does include everything shown here on the table.

The two above bed base rails, the two mounting brackets, one for each side of the vehicle, all the mounting hardware needed to install everything, and a nice set of detailed instructions. Now this kit will work with fifth wheel hitches from Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reece, and Valley. That should do it for the review on the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit with the Carbide Finish Rails for the Ford F-150 trucks.

Installed in 2013 F-150 61/2 ft bed. Everything fit as it should. Directions were pretty straight forward. Have a long handled 3/4 open or box end wrench on hand. No room for ratchet . Lightly tape front nuts and spacers together and slide under bolt and start threads from above. They are carriage bolts but long enough to start threads. You'll see what I mean. All parts included, frame brackets fit perfectly. Very satisfied with Curt c16441-204 fifth wheel installation kit and etrailer. I've dealt with etrailer before and never had a problem. 491116

Had products within 5 days and this including Saturday and Sunday. The mounting brackets match up to truck perfectly. only needed to remove the spare tire. did right on the floor of my garage. It was a two person operation getting bolts. total worth spending extra to avoid drilling in to the frame. 3 to 4 hours to complete project. that includes installing the hitch and clean up. 415529

Ellen was very good assisting me with my first purchase from etrailer. We discussed options about 5th wheels vs gooseneck with adapter. The recommendation was a fifth wheel, then she suggested the curt with 360 swivel and cushioned. I have been greatly pleased with this setup. My wife and I completed the installion in 3 1/2 hrs. I'll be doing more business with etrailer. Thanks James Note: have pulled 6000 lb camper about 3 trips, handles great 276546

I have been using this hitch for a year now. Very easy smooth operation. There is a little noise when towing, but after I added some grease, It has been a pretty quiet hitch. Easy installation with the large brackets and very solid. 258098

Order arrived very quickly. Package and contents in great shape. Have not installed as of yet because still waiting on the ORDERED NEW Truck. Have test fitted to another like vehicle and see no problems. Have also test fitted my older Reese 14K 5th wheel hitch to the Curt rails, again no problems. Appear identical except for 3 additional holes in each base rail as compared to the original Reese rails. Have ordered from etrailer.com before and always satisfied with there products, service, quality, timeliness, and more. 143204

The product was very well built. It was a fairly easy install on my F-150, the only real problem was installing the front bolt of the rail it is in a tight area. Price was exceptional compared to local RV store, I like buying local but $100 dollars in savings had to buy at etrailer. Sales staff excellent and price awesome! 142289

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ford F150
  • Using a Sidewinder along with a stationary fifth wheel hitch will eliminate the need to exit the truck cab every time the hitch needs to be slid rearward. You'll have the needed clearance without needing to adjust anything. The Sidewinder model you need will be specific to the pin box on your Fifth Wheel, so you'll need to know the manufacturer and model number of your existing pin box. This information should be found on a sticker or label on the pin box. The FAQ article I'll link you...

  • Can Fifth Wheel Rails be Mounted Behind Rear Axle
  • Since the pin weight of a fifth wheel trailer is so high you have to have the weight of the trailer squarely above the rear axle in the bed of the truck or possible a few inches forward. Installing the rails behind this will cause all sorts of problems with handling and braking. For a sliding hitch to use with these rails that allows turning clearance you would want the part # DM8550034 which will automatically slide back as your vehicle makes tight turns to give you clearance.

For a custom installation kit that will install quicker and require less drilling than universal kits, you can use Curt install kit # C16441-204 or Reese install kit # RP56006-53. The Reese kit will be easiest to install because the brackets mount to the outsides of the frame rails.

The rails have slots on the tops that the tabs on 5th wheel hitch legs fit into. These slots are 22 inches apart on center from the front rail to the back rail. There are also 3 sets of slots along each rail. The outer most set is 29 inches apart on center. The middle set is 20-1/2 inches apart on center, and the inner set is 10 inches apart...

For the whole installation kit that includes the brackets, rails, and hardware, use # C16441-204. The rails included are industry standard rails and they will accept your Reese 16K 5th wheel trailer hitch.

  • Both of the fifth wheel installation kits you referenced, part # C16300-204 and part # RP30035-426 are semi-custom installation kits and require drilling into the frame on your 2010 F-150. These are very similar in installation and both will work with fifth wheel hitches that fit industry-standard above bed rails. In my opinion I would go for the custom installation kit. These cut the installation time in half and use holes that exist in the frame and require no drilling. When installing...

The towing position is with the hitch closest to the cab of your 2011 Ford F-150; you will need to lock it in that position in order to tow so it should not be with the hitch back closer to the tailgate. You will need base rails in the bed of your '11 F-150 and the best option for you...

  • Reducing Chucking While Towing 2015 Grand Design Reflections Fifth Wheel for 2013 Ford F-150
  • To reduce the amount of chucking that you are experiencing when towing your 2015 Grand Design Reflections Fifth Wheel with a gooseneck adapter, I recommend installing a fifth wheel hitch on your 2013 Ford F-150. If your F-150 has a 6-1/2 ft bed, I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider, # C16521, and the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16120, for an 8 ft bed. Both options are cushioned hitches that provide additional shock absorption between the truck and...

Even though your 5th wheel trailer is not especially heavy at 4500-lbs dry weight, a 5th wheel hitch rated above 15K will tend to include enhanced features that can make towing easier. Since this is a one-time investment I urge you to consider a little price stretching to get a hitch set up that will give you the most satisfying...

But the only one from Husky that fits your truck is # HT31564-686 and it measures 26-1/4 inches from the back edge of the bed to the back for the REAR rail.

  • The Curt fifth wheel rail kit part # C16441-204 that you referenced will fit your 2013 Ford F-150 with the Heavy Duty Payload package. The frame design on your truck is similar enough to the standard frame that there would be no issue. For a 7-way to install in the bed of your truck to make connecting your trailer lights easier you would want the part # 41157. Most 7-ways will be at the rear of the truck near the bumper which doesn't work will with fifth wheel hitches.

  • How to Make Sure 5th Wheel Rails are Square and Straight before Mounting Trailer Hitch
  • We have always found the Lil Rocker as a fit for industry standard rails. It is possible like you said that it was twisted or bend somehow. You can also check that the rails are lined up properly by measuring from the center of the outside mounting slot diagonally to the center of the opposite slot on the other rail. Then repeat with the other side outside slot. The measurements should be the same. If not then the rails are not square. Take a look at the picture to see what I mean....
