Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - C16034 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the CURT A20 Dual Jaw fifth wheel trailer hitch with the Ford OEM legs, and a 20,000 lb weight capacity. This is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Anytime on a custom-fit part, I always recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application. This fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It uses in interlocking two-jaw system right here, which will provide a nice 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact.

Because of that, it'll give you less rattle, more security than your slide bar models. Also in the very front of the jaws, if you look closely, there'll be two built-in greased inaudible 00:00:44 fittings. That gives you easy lubrication of the jaws. The head itself is a fully articulating torsion head. It gives you controlled coupling and a nice stable, quiet ride. It'll self-align for easy hookup, help suppress any road shock which will help suppress the bothersome towing noise.

The handle right over here is a lockable handle, lets you easily secure the trailer to your hitch. It comes with a pinning clip to lock it into place. They do have the hole that's large enough, you could actually, for extra security, put a padlock in there if you prefer. We do sell the padlock separately. The handle's a short throw, single handle operation. Also on this, let me just rotate it.

I'm going to show you when you install the hitch head to the legs themselves, there's three rows of holes. Depending on where you put it, it'll give you a four inch hitch height adjustment. The hitch height will be measured from your truck bed to the top of your hitch head. You'll want to make sure you have that correct, because you'll want your fifth wheel to be as level as possible with your tow vehicle. Depending what row of holes you put it on, it'll give you a four inch height adjustment, anywhere from 13 inches to 17 inches of hitch height adjustment. Also one of the main features on this hitch is the three point indicator system.

It uses color coding. Let me just rotate this so you can get a better view of it. It's on the back here. If you can see right under the head right here, there's the different colors, red, green, and yellow. Basically this is color coded. It'll tell you if your hitch is ready to couple, uncouple, or tow. What's nice is this is visible from the cab. If you're right here sitting in the cab, you can look back here when you're trying to couple or uncouple. Basically, right now it's showing green which means the jaws are completely closed. If there was a kingpin in here, it'd be closed around the kingpin, that means it's locked closed and you're safe to tow. If you open it, let me just open it with the handle here. We'll pull the pin and clip. Again, this handle, you just move it back and you can see now the jaws are open and it's showing yellow. Yellow means your jaws are ready to couple so you're safe to back the truck in to couple it up to your fifth wheel. By chance, if it shows the red, that means it's uncoupled, that means the jaws are locked open, it's safe for you to pull the truck away, but do not couple. Just by turning around in your cab and looking back here at these colors, it shows you what position those jaws are in. Right here, it has a nice, fast one pin head removal, which will make it easy for one person to remove this hitch. You pop the clip on the other side, pull this large pin out, and you can take that head right out of the cross member. It makes it a lot lighter and easier for one person to remove the hitch. Let me just rotate this back around. There we go. It will include this plastic lube plate. This lube plate goes onto your kingpin, helps it glide smoothly into the hitch during hookup. This is a fast and easy installation. It'll drop right into the four receiver pucks that are built into your Ford factory under bed rails. All you have to do to install that, rotate a little bit again just so you can see . You can see these handles. There's one on each corner. You can just pop your pin and clip out of here, rotate your handles out a quarter of a turn. When you do that, it'll rotate those tabs. Now it lines those tabs up and you'll do it on the other side also. That way you're able to drop it right into those pucks. Once they drop all the way in, push your handles back in a quarter of a turn, that'll rotate the tabs to lock it into those pucks, and then your fifth wheel's all ready to go. Just put your pin through the holes, lock it into place, now it's fast and easy, just like that. This is a nice, sturdy steel construction. It has a nice, durable carbide powder coat finish. A few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity, again, is 20,000 lbs. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 5,000 lbs. The hitch height we had mentioned is anywhere from 13 inches to 17 inches. The last thing I want to show you is here's an example of what the kingpin would look like on your fifth wheel. I just want to show you how the jaws will work. Right now, we left it in the open position. It's showing yellow, which means you're ready to couple. If the kingpin will slide back into the dual jaws, you can see when it gets back far enough, the jaws completely surround the kingpin 360 degrees. The handle moves up into the locked position. All you have to do is take your pin and clip, drop it right into the hole, clip it, and then the handle won't move and you're all locked, ready to go. Again, if you look at your color back here, it's showing green, which means green, your jaws are locked closed. It's safe to tow. That should do it for the review on the CURT A20 Dual Jaw fifth wheel trailer hitch, with the Ford OEM legs and a 20,000 lb weight capacity.

I purchased this hitch because I have used a Curt Q16, with my fifth wheel and it has performed well. I have a new truck with long bed, and I no longer need the slider. My truck has the factory 5th wheel prep package. I decided to order the new Curt A20, rather than just adding the legs to the Q16. The Q20 was shipped and delivered as scheduled. It was packaged well, and the hitch looks perfect. The installation instructions were easy to follow, and the entire process went in without any problems. Katrina answered my questions, on the phone, about options, and helped me with the order process. eTrailer.com has the products I need, with great prices and quick shipping. When I need towing accessories, this is the place I'll shop. 464648

Received this hitch about 1 week after ordering. Item arrived in packaging which maybe had more staples in it than required but everything was intact. Assembly took about 15-20 minutes and hitch just dropped right into Ford factory prep package. Hooking and unhooking trailer is a breeze and everything slides very smoothly. Pulling trailer is smooth due to dual rubber pivots and eliminates most hitch chatter. All in all, would definitly recommend and purchase again. 441092

The assistance I received with identifying the right hitch and then getting it ordered and shipped was fantastic. The hitch arrived in perfect condition sooner than originally expected (Thank you Nicole). Assembly was easy although I did get a little assistance from my 7 year old son G. Within 30 minutes assembly was complete. Connecting to trailer was seamless and I would highly recommend this hitch. Again thank you to Nicole for all the fantastic help. 397831

This is my first 5th Wheel hitch and I'm anxious to try it out. The only thing I have left to do is to make the measurement for the height and I'll be ready to go. Thank You 562343

This is a great hitch. Works perfectly with the Ford factory bed mount system and is easy to take apart into two pieces for easy installation/removal. I have towed almost 10k miles with it in the year that I have owned it and have never had an issue. Easy to hookup and disconnect. Can't ask for mutch more in a hitch.

received both items within 3 days after ordering.

Will order all future items for my rig (42 ft. 5th wheel & 2017 f-250) from this company if they stock it. Thank You. 443323

I paid for the 3-5 business day shipping and received it on day 4. The packaging left a bit to be desired but everything was undamaged so I really don't care. Assembly was relatively easy but as another reviewer said, make sure you thread the bolts through the legs before you get started. Additionally, once assembled, I had to pull the pins and back the nuts off the feet about 3/4 of a turn on all four feet to fit my Ford puck system. Overall, good product, great etrailer service at the best price I found on the web. 442497

The order process, shipment and receipt was painless and very timely. I requested 3 day delivery and it happened as scheduled! The product was packaged very securely, it is heavy so if you back isn't in great shape have help! Make sure you run the bolts through the tapped holes before you attempt to assemble, the powder coat is in the threads. The assembly is tedious because there is limited room for tools to move. End product looks great! Thanks for the great service! 424460

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


I had a reese slide bar hitch that was worn out. I decided to do with the A20 over the B&W mainly because of the cost. After enough research I found out my old rails wouldn't work because they didn't have the extra slots for the wider base. Etrailer had the complete universal kit that worked great. Was easy to unbolt old rails and replace with the new ones. I was able to reuse my original brackets mounted to frame which I liked better than the universal ones. Took maybe an hour to put everything together. I like the smoothness of the latch opening and closing the jaws Hitch looks well built and I guess the 140lb it weighs says so. Etrailer shipped quickly. 481260

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


Very solid hitch. I like the color coded indicator system, but I seldom look at it because the double jaw opens cleanly when unhitching and latches securely when hitching. I have yet to use the slider. I did have to call Curt for assistance with misalignment of the hitch head and roller base. They had the needed spacer to me in four days. Great purchase to delivery times by etrailer and Curt. 474918

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


Mixed reviews. I think I picked out a great hitch (Curt A29, part # C16140. Haven't installed it yet. Turns out the mounting system for my 2006 Chevrolet 2500HD 8' long bed isn't the right one (holes don't match up to the frame, only the one in the back for the lower bolt hole). Part number 16418. Emailed information to sales & this was the part recommended for my truck... Still can't install the part... Will have to drill holes both front holes (large & small...)... Doesn't math the video of the 2005 Chevrolet 2500 HD... Appreciate the videos, better than the written instructions included. Once done, hope to give it a 5 star. Will see what is recommended... 454980

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


The hitch works great. After 15000 miles of towing, the only issue is the height adjustment. We do a lot of national forest/bml camping. Sometimes the roads are a little rough to say the least. The lowest adjustment point allows the 5th wheel to ride fairly level. But at times in very sharp turns or on some of the rougher trails, the trailer has hit the bedrails. If we move the hitch to the next adjustment, it rides nose high. On the highway, it causes a rougher ride. If we move it to the lowest, it rides very smooth. Although it is only 4 bolts and only about 30 minutes to switch the adjustment, it is somewhat annoying. In the end the hitch is great with easy maintenance. 548927

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


I recently purchased a fifth wheel hitch for my new truck but wasn't sure I ordered the correct one after hitting the "enter" key! I called etrailer the following morning and found out I had, in fact, ordered the wrong hitch. The young man I spoke with was incredibly helpful - he canceled my initial order, explained what I really needed and why and then placed the order. I went on line the next day and found that the order had somehow been cancelled. I then spoke with LEAH G. She is the bomb. She corrected everything and did her best to expedite shipping including personally making certain that MY shipment was on the last truck of the day. What more can I say. Etrailer.com and Leah G are unbelievably awesome from beginning to end! Thank you for a great experience Conrad 371744

Very heavy duty hitch. Initially had some concerns so ordered the 20,000 lbs. instead of the 16000. Very good service from the etrailer representatives. Had some concerns on how long the delivery was going to take, however they were able to get it to me in a very short time. Thank you to the individuals who helped with my order. Danny 340534

This hitch was extremely easy to install! Although the locking handle maneuvered slightly different than the Curt videos I saw online, the intuitive design made it a breeze to set up. As a first time 5th-wheeler, this product has exceeded my expectations so far. I have not towed yet with this unit, but I feel confident that this product will be able to tow my 16k lb 5th wheel. 452620

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


This product review is for a Curt A20 fifth wheel hitch for a 2017 Nissan Titan XD with the puck system. The hitch was ordered in late March and received May 10, the status of my order was followed up by Helen M. at etrailer, she was very informative and responsive to my inquiries. The hitch arrived by UPS in two packages. The packaging was in great shape and very substantial. All parts were secure in the package. Be advised this hitch is very heavy so help with installation may be necessary. The hitch base frame is cast iron and very sturdy. The base fit perfectly in the factory puck system. Grease was applied to the pucks and receivers to reduce future corrosion. Unpacking will take about 30 minutes and the installation is very easy and with help will require about one hour. The hitch is installed but at present has not been used and tested under a load, so be advised there will be a follow up to this review in the future. Thanks etrailer for a great shopping experience. 510021

The R20 Roller and the A20 Slider were both pretty easy to install. Except for the weight (Those Things Are HEAVY) It was a straight forward install. What I like is the Quality of the Curt Products. They are a very high Quality product in my opinion. I plan on the wife and I and our Two Main Coons are planning a cross country trip. So I am very excited to get out on the open Road and see where life takes us. What WAS a bear to install was the Rail Kit. It required lots of trips out from under 402224

Very happy with etrailer and the purchase of Curt 20K fifth wheel hitch for my new Ram 3500 that fit perfectly in the factory fifth wheel prep package. etrailer customers service was helpful with questions about the shipment while in transit. The hitch came in two cartons and the assembly was straight forward with easy to follow instructions. The Curt hitch is a high quality well engendered device with well thought out features that should perform greatly for many years to come. 610298

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch That Fits in Pucks of 2017 Ford F-350 With 8-Foot Bed
  • There are a number of high-quality fifth-wheel hitches that will fit into the puck system of your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty. Reese makes two of those, called the Elite Series, which is available in towing capacities of 18,000 lbs # RP30142 and 26,500 lbs # RP30871. In between those weight ranges is the Demco Hijacker # DM8550033, which has a 21,000 lb capacity. Finally there is Curt, which has six different fifth-wheel hitches that will fit in the pucks of your F-350's bed. The A16...

  • List of 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches that Fit Directly in Factory Prep Package on 2017 Ford F-250
  • There are several 5th wheel trailer hitches that will fit directly in the factory prep package in your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed. I have compiled a list of the options for you and linked videos for each of them. I like the B&W Companion hitch personally because it is such a well-made and versatile hitch. B&W Companion 20K # BWRVK3300 Curt 24K # C16039 or # C16545-16017 Curt 20K # C16530-16017 or # C16034 Curt 16K # C16520-16017 Reese Elite 26.5K # RP30871 Reese Elite 18K # RP30142 Demco...

  • Pros and Cons of 5th Wheel Hitch With 20k Rating for 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Rail Kit
  • When comparing the B&W Companion To the Curt A 20, there are some basic differences that make both models attractive. The B&W Companion # BWRVK3300 has a very sturdy base that can be easily disconnected from the hitch head and the pivot arms are easily adjustable and have not only height adjustment but can move either closer to cab or farther from cab. It weighs about 150 lbs in total. The negative is the lack of cool features like a coupler indicator and the standard B&W gray color. The...

  • 5th Wheel Hitches that Fit the Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package on a 2017 Ford F-350 Long Bed
  • Yes, the same hitches that fit the factory prep package on the 2017 F-250 will also fit your 2017 Ford F-350 long bed. I have listed the options below and I have linked videos for each of the hitches. I like the B&W Companion hitch personally because it is such a well-made and versatile hitch.

  • Recommendation on a 5th Wheel Hitch to Fit a 2017 Ford F-350 With 8 Ft Bed and Towing Prep Package
  • We have a 5th wheel hitch that will work great in your 2017 Ford F-350 w/ 8 foot bed and towing prep package. I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package, # BWRVK3300. The B&W hitch has a 20,000 lbs gross towing capacity and a vertical load limit of 5,000 lbs. The Companion is designed to fit right into your truck's towing prep package. There is no installation of mounting brackets or base rails to mount this hitch into the bed. For a more economical...

  • Comparing Reese Elite And Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ford F-350 with 8-Foot Bed
  • The Curt A20 # C16034 is a high-quality hitch that is going to perform. It has a 20,000 lb GTW and vertical load limit of 5,000 lbs, a secure 2-jaw locking system, and a torsion head which is going to help reduce some of the noise that comes with towing a fifth-wheel. It also has a handy color coding system to tell you when you are ready to couple, tow, and uncouple as well as a height range adjustment between 13" and 17". Keep in mind that with your pin box, you'd need to use the Sidewinder...

  • Difference Between Curt A20 C16034 and C16017
  • The Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16034 referenced in your question is the complete 5th Wheel Hitch for your 2017 Ford F-350 with the factory rail kit. This hitch includes the legs that will drop directly into the 4 receiver pucks that are built into the factory underbed rails on your truck. The Curt # C16017 that you also mentioned is just the leg assembly for the above 5th Wheel Hitch. The head is not included. I have attached a short video review of this 5th Wheel Hitch...

  • Will Curt A20 Fixed Fifth Wheel Hitch fit in 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed With Factory Rails?
  • The Curt A20 with Ford OEM Legs # C16034 will fit into the puck system of your 2017 Ford F-250. However, there may not be enough clearance on tight turns and your trailer could very well hit the cab of your F-250, so it is strongly recommended you use a Sidewinder with this hitch as a way to protect your cab from damage. Otherwise, you may want to consider Curt Q20 # C16530-16020, a sliding hitch which also fits in the factory puck system of your '17 F-250. Should you want to go with...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch With Low King Pin Height For 2015 Ford F-350 With Factory Rail Kit
  • For your 2015 Ford F-350 with factory rail kit, the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3300 you mentioned has a lowest height of 16-3/4 inches as you mentioned. For the lower hitch height you are looking for, I recommend the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # C16034. This hitch has a height of 13-17 inches, so it will give you the ability to tow level without missing any of your towing capacity. This is...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in a 2017 Ford F-350 With Factory Prep Package
  • To answer your second question first, yes, the Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Adapter # AM3200 can be used with a Roto Flex pin box. It however cannot be used with a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box. However, on to your first question, the Andersen installs into industry standard fifth wheel base rails so it will not work in your 2017 Ford F-350 that has the factory prep package. In order to install the Andersen into the prep package it will need the adapter, like # RP30156, which means...

  • Gooseneck Ball Hole Cover and 5th Wheel Hitches for 2011 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package
  • For a plug that will fit the gooseneck ball hole in your 2011 Ford F-350 with the factory 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package you can use # RP30136. A trim ring for the gooseneck hole is not available. I will be happy to help you out with a 5th wheel hitch. There are several that will fit directly into the puck system in your truck: B&W Companion 20K # BWRVK3300 B&W Companion 25K # BWRVK3305 Curt 20K # C16034 Curt 24K # C16036 Demco 21K # DM8550033 Reese 18K # RP30142 Reese 26.5K...

  • Does the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch Come with Instructions and Hardware for Installation
  • The Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140 comes with instructions and all of the hardware needed to install on Industry Standard Base Rails. If you already have base rails installed on your 2012 Ford F-350 then you are good to go. If you have the factory rail kit then you will need to go with the A20 part # C16034. If you have no base rails or the factory rail kit installed on your F-350 then I recommend the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16424-204 which is compatible...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Rail Kit and Reese Sidewinder
  • The Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Form OEM Legs # C16034 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit the factory rail kit on your 2017 Ford F-350. Since your 5th-wheel trailer has a Reese Sidewinder, which will give you around 22 inches of additional clearance for tight turns, you will not need a sliding 5th-wheel hitch on your 6-3/4 ft truck bed. The Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch is a great option that features an interlocking 2-jaw system to provide 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin...

I called and confirmed with Curt it is compatible all the way up to present without issues. If you already have the Curt A20 # C16140 then you can use legs # C16017 or you can use an adapter like # RP30156 or # DM6175 if you prefer. I've attached some videos to further assist.

  • Under Bed Fifth Wheel Hitch Rail Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250
  • Essentially the factory Ford fifth wheel rail system is a Reese rail kit, but Reese doesn't sell the rail kit for your truck and the only way to get it would be directly through Ford. Curt does offer a fifth wheel hitch that fits that rail kit directly though with the A20 part # C16034. Another option is the B and W Companion Hitch and Gooseneck setup that consists of the rail kit/gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1117-5W and then the fifth wheel hitch part # BWRVK3500-5W.

  • Lightweight 5th Wheel Hitch Setup for a 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • I do have a setup for your 2017 Ford F-250 and 2016 Keystone Outback 286FRL that will be easy to remove. However, the Andersen Ultimate should not be used due to the short bed on your truck and the potential for contact between the cab of your vehicle and loft of your trailer. Therefore, I recommend taking a look at the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16034 so long as you have the factory prep package. The reason I recommend this is because it can be broken down into two pieces,...

  • Excessive Movement Between the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch and 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin
  • First, make sure that the jaws are fully closing around the king pin and that they are locked into place. If not then that would be why you are experiencing so much movement. If they are fully closing and locking then it is possible that the movement is actually coming from somewhere else such as at the connection between the head and the center section or the feet and the OEM Ford mounts. There are some things you can look at on the hitch to determine if the jaws are not fully closing....

First, if you want to use an adapter you can use the Andersen Ranch Hitch, # AM3100. I have linked a video review of this adapter for you. The other option is if your F-450 has the 4 pucks and not just the gooseneck hitch. There are 5th wheel hitches that will fit directly into the factory pucks.
