Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - C16468-204 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel installation kit with the carbide finished rails for the Toyota trucks. Now this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 2007, the 2016 Toyota Tundra trucks with the six and half foot bed. Now on a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. 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 and these are custom fit brackets so they're designed to mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame and this will help 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, they do attach to the mounting brackets, 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 and these have a nice carbide finish to them, you can see. Now, this part includes everything shown here on the table, the two above bed base rails, the four mounting brackets, all the mounting hardware that's needed to install everything, even comes with this electrical box mounting bracket and a set of detailed instructions.

This kit will work with fifth wheel hitches from Curt to draw type, hidden hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley but that should do it for the review on the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel installation kit with the carbide finish rails for the Toyota Trucks.

I received this quickly but like others have written in their review, the boxes were in bad shape. I had already decided that because the product was heavy metal shipped in a cardboard box that might be the case, so no big deal. When I opened the box I found that the plastic bag containing the nuts, bolts and brackets was also broken open allowing many of the pieces to be loose in the box. I immediately checke the parts list and found that all were accounted for. Lucky I guess that none had escaped from one of the many holes in the box. This is a great installation kit for my 2008 Tundra. 371614

Great product, a true custom fit of very strong brackets and quality hardware. No need to worry about the strength of your 5th wheel hitch with this product installed. 472690

Kit comes with everything needed, fits well and has fairly good instructions. One tip, remove any foam joint filler under the bed before installing the palates to the frame, this will make it much easier to align the side holes. This kit is not shown as available for a 5 1/2' short bed but it will fit right up. just be aware of the space you have available for cab clearance. Good quality parts and hardware. 443156

Received order in about three days. Communication about delivery and time was very friendly and prompt. Rails and brackets were installed and they look great, I also ordered my hitch from etrailer, but not on the same order and will receive the hitch soon . I am very happy with my experience. 441138


Comments
I like the fact that it is light to handle by myself when I take the head off the brackets. I find it easy to open the jaws when in no load, but to disengage the jaws when I take trailer off it is hard to open the jaws. From the above it is much more difficult than my experience with previous Reese hitch, but I like the fact it is so much lighter than the Reese. I guess I just need to get used to it.

I got my Curt 5th wheel hitch installed just the other day. everything fit just like it was suppose to. Although I believe the electrical box that was suppose to be moved with the supplied bracket is no longer necessary for the 2015 Tundra. I also found that rather then following the installation instructions to install the front rail first, it made more sense to install the rear bracket first and then set the 5th wheel assembly on the rear bracket, place the front rail according to the 5th wheel kit, position the front brackets where they align and drill the holes accordingly. next week I get to test my new 5th wheel on a trip to San Fran.

This is my first experience with eTrailer. I own a 2007 Toyota Tundra dbl cab short bed. We just bought our first 5th wheel camper. I started looking for 5th wheels and install kits calling RV dealers getting prices. Wow, I never thought they were that expensive. Then I went on line and found eTrailer. I placed my order and when I asked about the quick install kit I had the wrong part and they set me straight. The parts were ordered and with a week they were delivered. I work out of town so I didn't have a chance to look them over right away but my wife sent pictures to me. Everyone was very helpful, prices were great, and the parts arrived in good condition and on time. Since I'm only home every other weekend and my trailer was delivered this weekend ill be installing my 5th wheel next weekend. Before and after pictures will be sent to eTrailer. What it all boils down to is THANK YOU eTrailer,with a special thanks to Pat C. I will be ordering air ride and exhaust Ing with other parts soon Jeffrey H 62849

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Toyota Tundra
    With a 6-1/2 foot bed on your 2015 Toyota Tundra, there are components under the bed that do not allow the B&W Companion hitch from fitting on the 6-1/2 foot bed truck. The good news is you still have a couple options I recommend for both a gooseneck and a 5th wheel hitch on your 2015 Toyota Tundra. The option that is most similar to what you are looking at is to use the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch w/ Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs, # C60751. You can then...

  • Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a Toyota Tundra Supercab with a 6.5 Foot Bed
    You will either need a slider hitch or a Sidewinder (see link) to pull a 5th wheel trailer with your Toyota Tundra Supercab, with a 6-1/2 foot bed. For the 6-1/2 foot bed I would recommend a slider hitch and the Curt E5 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer hitch with R5 Roller, item # 16516 is a good choice. Along with this hitch you will need an installation kit for your truck. For the 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra 6-1/2 foot Box, except Crew Max, you will need the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation...

The easiest way is to find your Certification Label and get the truck's model code. With the model code you can look in your owner's manual and find the listed towing capacity based on how your truck was equipped from the factory. The Certification Label is inside the truck's driver side door. Take a look at the picture...

  • Fifth Wheel Towing Capacity of 2012 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 2WD With 5.7L V8 and Standard Bed
    I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2012 Toyota Tundra and its ratings for towing a fifth wheel trailer are based on the GCWR (Gross Combination Weight Rating), which is the weight of your fully loaded '12 Tundra PLUS the weight of a fully loaded trailer. Put simply, your towing capacity will be your GCWR minus your GVWR, which I'll detail for you with an example, but the issue is that for a '12 Tundra, the GCWR is going to depend on a couple factors. The GCWR (maximum capacity...

    Curt has fifth wheel rail kits that fit your 2019 Toyota Tundra but they do not list the universal fit kit part # C16100 you mentioned as a fit. They also don't have any spacers that would compensate for that as well. Best option is the Curt custom fifth wheel rail kit part # C16468-204 which is all around better than a universal fit kit. The install time will be less than half with a custom kit over a universal kit and there won't be any frame drilling which is also really nice. There...

This is a custom install kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit, will minimize drilling and would work with a Reese or Curt hitch like you are interested in. For a Curt Slider hitch I would recommend the part # C16521.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Use with a Sidewinder and 2015 Toyota Tundra
    If it were me I would use the Reese Select Plus hitch # RP30081 because it does tend to work better with Sidewinder pin boxes than the Titan and it is superior to the B&W Patriot which is the B&W economy hitch. The Select Plus hitch is the way to go for this set up. Since the trailer has a Sidewinder pin box you are correct about not needing a slider. But I do recommend custom wedge # SWW-01 for use with this hitch and the Sidewinder. I have linked a video review of the hitch for you. For...

The brackets for the fifth wheel install on the outside of the frame rail of the 2015 Toyota Tundra and the brackets for the # F2445 system use a plate to install to the bottom of the frame rail so there should be no interference.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Part Number for 2016 Toyota Tundra Long Bed
    For the 8 foot long bed versions of the 2016 Toyota Tundra Curt recommends the fifth wheel rail kit # C16304-200 as the correct fit. The # C16468-204 fits the 6-1/2 foot long bed versions of the truck only. For a hitch the Curt A16 part # C16120 is a really great option. It has a jaw design that wraps tightly to the king pin of the trailer for a smooth ride and a head that pivots quite a bit to allow for easier connection/disconnection of the hitch.
