E16 5th Wheel Jaw

Simple, Secure Hookup

With a dual-pivoting head that offers 10 degrees of lateral movement, the E16 fifth-wheel hitch makes hookup a snap, even on unlevel ground. Once the king pin slides into the hitch, the auto-locking, slide-bar jaw secures it in place. A unique feature of the E16 is the rear steel tension bar within the jaw that activates upon hookup to clamp down on the king pin, providing a tighter grip that maximizes security and minimizes rattle.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel C16115 Review

Today we're going to review Part Number C16115. This is the Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. It's a slide-bar jaw design. It has a 16,000-pound weight capacity. Now this is an entry-level hitch, so it offers several unique features. It has the auto-locking slide bar jaw mechanism that provides superior security.

It has the rear tension bar right back here behind the slide bar. This will work with that slide bar. It helps clamp around the kingpin to help minimize your rattle and any movement. It has a dual pivoting head. It has a 10-degree lateral movement for simple hook-up.

Underneath the head they do use Permalube pivot bushings to increase the hitch slide for the reduced magnets. It has an anti-rattle skid plate, provides a smooth, quiet ride. Now we do recommend a nylon lube plate. We do sell those separately on our website. They are listed on this product page as a related product. This lube plate will help prevent scratches on the skid plate.

It lets the kingpin glide smoothly into the hitch inaudible 00:00:55 cup. It has a 4-position height adjustment for multiple towing applications. When you attach your cross number to the legs, there's 4 rows of holes, so it will give you a 13 1/4 to a 17-inch heighth adjustment for a hitch height. Basically a hitch heighth is measured from the truck bed to the top of the plate here, the skid plate. When you're towing, you want your fifth wheel to be as level as possible with your truck bed. You have an adjustment range of 13 1/4 inches to 17 inches.

Now the nice thing also about this, you'll notice the pins and the clips right here. There's 2 of them. If you pull the clips and pull the pins out, you'll be able to move the head out of the cross member. You can take the cross member and the legs out. It makes it very easy for 1 person to remove this hitch from your truck bed. Now this does require the rails and the install kit which we do sell separately. What you'll need to do is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model of vehicle. It will show you the correct rails and install kit needed for your vehicle. This does install into the industry-standard rails made by Curt draw-type hidden hitch Pro Series Reese and inaudible 00:02:02. If you'll notice also on the table, that's all included. It includes the 4 pins and clips. That's used to attach these legs to the rails themselves. It also includes a nice set of detailed instructions. This hitch is a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice carbide, black finish. The specs on it, the gross stone-weight capacity, again, is 16,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 4,000 pounds. I had mentioned the hitch heighth adjustment is a range of 13 1/4 to 17 inches. It's in 1 1/4 increments. Just to show you how this operates, I got an example of a king pin. This is what it would look like on your pin box of your fifth wheel. We're going to show you how it installs in here. Basically, what you'll need to do is just lift the handle. If you notice on the handle, there's a tab with a hole in it. Then there's a tab here. When it's down in the locked position, you can put a padlock through there if you'd like. That's sold separately. We do sell those or if you happen to have one. Once you put a padlock through that, it will permanently lock it for extra security but to open it what you want to do is flip that handle up. Then pull it all the way out. When you pull it all the way out, you can see that it will lock with that tension bar, lock into the open position. Now you're ready to back into your fifth wheel. Your kingpin which should be on your pin box will just be going into your hitch. You can see as it goes in it takes that tension bar, pushes that tension bar open, releases that slide bar and it closes right around it. Then that tension bar keeps pressure on the kingpin to minimize any rattle or movement in there. Then what you'll want to do is you'll notice . Just make sure the handle goes into the down position. Once it's in the down position, it won't be able to be open. Then you can open it to keep it locked in that position. Then to remove it again, just raise it completely up, pull it all the way and lock in the open position. As simple as that but that should do it for the review, Part Number C16115, the Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the slide bar jaw and a 16,000-pound weight capacity.

The Product was nice and worth the money, the packaging for shipping was really poor. The shipping was very fast but when we received it, one part was damaged with dents and scratches. We are very unsatisfied with that. We paid 400 for a hitch that is damaged and will rust. The parts in the hitch box were not wrapped for protection. Also, instead of putting it in a box that fit, they staples a million staples to make a box around the factory box. It was very unprofessional. Pretty upset for the money we spent. 413611

Very quality unit. Only had trouble with handle mounting as the tube was turned 180 degrees and I put handle on as instructions said and it was not lined up with grooves to pull hitch lock out. Took top back off and seen this so removed handle and put on in up position instead of down and was able to pull to line up grooves with slots and release hitch lock and lock it in down as it should be. Works real good and sets secure in rails and in hitch top. Real good fit with no rattles going down road when nothing is hitched. 222508

Real good, handles any camper and works smooth.

Well packed, free 5 days shipping, easy to assemble and nice looking hitch. Im extra amazed because i can remove the king pin base/head from the bridge leg assembly to easily transport them. Still not tested with the coach. Practically no lateral movement and have the suspicion bushings. Very firm and easy mechanisms. Do not leave the gate open for long term because could damage the main spring. I plan to pull a 11k 334FWFLS. Nothing compared to this hitch in this price range. I will add some extra feedback after couple travels. 450600

What a great experience! I was looking for a "basic" new 5th wheel hitch to replace my aging Lill Rocker by RBW; the Curt E16 looked to be very similar. I found a Curt E16 at a local RV dealer and decide to check with etrailer.com before purchasing. To my amazement, the price on etrailers was half of the dealer price. Moreover, the customer service at etrailer.com was above my expectations. I called to see how long it would take an order to arrive to my location (planning a trip and needed the new hitch in 3 to 4 days). Sandy was very helpful and assured me the hitch would arrive in time for my trip. Not only did I receive the hitch in great condition, it came a day earlier than I thought. Based on such a great first experience with etrailer.com, I will be purchasing from them again! 289116

This is a very basic hitch. Very simple to install and use. However, with the head not being fully articulating, its a very noisy hitch. Plenty of rattle, clank and chucking. The chucking can be a bit alarming. It worked well enough for our small 22' 5er but since stepping up to a 34' trailer and 12,000#, I decided to upgrade to a B&W Patriot. If you're on a tight budget and have smaller lighter trailer, this will get the job done but Id have gone with a better jaw type hitch over the slide bar had I known better at first. The custom install kit for my 2013 Silverado 3500 long bed was amazing in fit. You need to be a little handy to install it but its well worth the extra few $$. The installation instructions are adequate but could be a little clearer. 300491

Due to the low price of this hitch I was wary of its quality, but now after 1 year of use with a 30' Jayco fifth wheel and sometimes double towing with a 3000 lb trailer behind the 5th wheel I have complete confidence in this hitch. I installed it in a 2014 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes using a Reese Sidewinder. The only modification I had to make was shortening the release handle due to the narrow bed with the Ram Boxes. Other than that this hitch combined with the sidewinder I can turn the camper and truck just over 90 degrees with absolutely no clearance problems and without the need for a slider hitch. The only problem at first was the hitch was somewhat tight but as it wears that tightness is getting better. Overall a well made hitch for a good price. 267066

The product went in my truck just fine but the instructions were not the best to read. I wish that the company would of gave me an orthographic blue print instead of an isometric. "2D instead of 3D". A video would of been great to see some of the tricks. But all in all everyting went pretty well. It took me from 3:30pm to 10:30pm to get it put in. Once I did the first side the second side went much faster. Make sure the brackets are not flipped around so you don't add extra holes like I did. The box was complete distroyed when it arrived. I think that every thing is in operational shape won't know until I hook up. 186424

Simple well built product. Easy to assemble for use (about 15 min). The way I did it was to Assemble loosely at first, Then pin the hitch on the rails. After that I tightened everything up. I put the adjustment to highest position then I would adjust downward to get the the truck and trailer level. I found putting the hitch to its highest and then adjust the pin box as high as possible gave me the extra clearance I wanted between the tailgate and the trailer pin box bracket. I have one of those 5' 6" beds to deal with. Fit great. 359879

Not hard to install, Just hard for me due to recent surgery. Every thing fit and instructions were better than average. Chevy 2500HD, 8ft bed. Be sure to take the spare tire out before starting so you will have room under the truck. Can't beat etrailers prices and shipping. I've bought from them before and I'm sure I'll buy in the future. 225626

An entry level product, I first looked through the instructions and thought they were a little vague, but as I started assembling the unit, everything fell into place and I had no problems understanding what to do. I loved the price, the communication, and the results. I plan on using it next week with our toy hauler and I'm excited! 279362

Nice looking hitch and well made, I just installed it but haven't towed with it yet. etrailer shipped fast but UPS damaged the carton and the bolt kit was lost in transit. Customer service at etrailer was very helpful in getting a replacement kit shipped now all is good. I would not hesitate to do business with them again. 357694

I used it once and sold it. There was slack at the lock and every time you took off there was a jerk. I have used several brands over the years and never experienced this. I would not recommend this product to anyone, you get what you pay for, this product is priced low and performance is low in my experience. 355372

Ordered the curt hitch very easily. .and free shipping was great..my complaint is that the description did not indicate the hitch was imported. when u look at Curts web site they talk about good American products made by Americans . I mistakenly thought there products and my hitch was made in the USA 426489

Looking at the box when it arrived, I thought that I was going to have to make a trip to the hardware store to get replacement bolts. Etrailer added an outside box to protect the factory packaging, and it was all there and in great shape! Shipped on time and tracked on their site well. Very pleased. 211889

shipping and price was great, overall I'm happy with the hitch but once assembled the legs didn't line up with the universal rails in my truck very well. it took a little persuasion with a 8lb hammer to get things to align properly but after that it worked great, id buy another for the price. 206601

Product made it with no missing parts. etrailer "pallet wrapped" the 93 lb. 5th wheel hitch. Outer box still sustained damage, but maintained the inner box. etrailer succeeded where two other venders failed to deliver intact packages. etrailer has a new, repeating customer. 540219

It's a good hitch at a good price. It takes longer to get it out of the box than it does to assemble it. No instructions needed it's that easy to assemble. On a side note your company could save a fortune by not using so many Staples boxing over the original box. 446754

There hitch was delivered on time, but when the UPS driver slid the product out of truck he dropped it to his hand truck and bent the cross bar. I was able to bend it back and it installed perfectly. My old hitch had a lot slop in it. I'm very satisfied. 244073

I had the UPS guy put the box in the back of my truck and it took me about a half hour to install it and try it out. Worked great. Like I read in many reviews, the box was slightly damaged but the hitch didn't have a scratch. Was here in three days. 188980

  • Comparing Reese, Pro Series, and CURT 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • Reese is a leader in the towing industry and we sell more Reese hitches than any other brand. It is height adjustable from 14-1/2 to 18 inches. The jaw on the Reese hitch is a double jaw style. This is a safe and secure style. Only the single hook is considered to be better. It has a double pivot head. The next step down is the Pro Series hitch, # PS30855. This is a very economical hitch aimed at the first-time 5th wheel trailer owner. It is height adjustable from 13 inches to 17 inches...

These brackets won't require drilling into your truck frame. If you want to use the kit # C16116, it will work with your truck, but you will need to drill into your frame...

  • What is Meant by 16K Gross Towing Weight Rating on Curt 5th Wheel Hitch # C16115
  • The Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch that you referenced, part # C16115, is rated for 5th wheel trailers up to 16,000-lbs gross towing weight. Gross towing weight means the trailer weight plus the weight of all loaded water, propane, supplies and equipment - everything. The weight of your 39-foot Forest River Wildwood 5th wheel will depend on the exact model and how it is equipped. For example, Wildwood model 33BHOK has a shipping weight of about 9100-lbs but its gross vehicle weight rating...

  • Can a 2011 Dodge 1500 Crew Cab Short Bed Tow a Fifth Wheel
  • Due to the short bed on your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab, the only way you will be able to successfully tow a fifth wheel trailer without having the front of the trailer loft strike the rear of the cab during turns would be to use a Sidewinder extended pin box. The Sidewinder relocates the pivot point from the connection of the hitch and the king pin to the point where the pin box connects to the trailer, thus providing 22 inches of additional clearance between the rear of the cab and...

  • Difference Between the Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Hitch Head and the E16
  • The Head Unit and R16 Roller Adapter # C16515 is more of an entry level fifth wheel head designed for a lower price point, whereas the A16 part # C16520 is a bit nicer with it's 2 piece jaw system that will provide better king pin contact which will minimize movement and noise. The A16 also features a color indicator system so that you can look at the indicator on the rear of the hitch to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green). Both...

  • Distance Between Bed Rails for Installation of Curt E5 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Do you know who manufactured your existing bed rails? The Curt E5 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch you referenced, part # C16115 are compatible with universal rails manufactured by Reese, Curt and Valley. A universal rail will have three mounting slots on each side of the rail, as shown in the photo with dimensions I have linked to. Your front and rear rail should be 22 inches apart, measured from the center of the front rail to the center of the rear.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 Crew Cab
  • I have a couple of different options for your 2017 Ram 3500 Crew Cab. Your truck has a bed height of just over 20 inches so I will recommend some 5th wheel hitches that are adjustable to under 3 inches of that 20 inch mark that you're looking for. The most economical option for your Ram is the Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16115 with the Curt Base Rails # C16426-204. This features the Slide Bar Jaw to secure your king pin and has a Gross Towing Weight of 16,000 lbs. The next step up...

  • Can Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Be Used with 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • It sounds like you'd like to install the Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16115 into your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5-1/2 foot bed. This will be no problem at all if your truck already industry standard rails installed. If not you can add them. I suggest the Reese Custom Base Rails Kit # RP50064-58. The custom kit will be much easier and faster to install than a universal kit. It will also work with your Sidewinder pin box. You'll need the wedge, part # C16991 if you don't...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2013 Ram 3500
  • I have a solution that will allow you to pull a fifth wheel trailer with your 2013 Ram 3500, however, it appears that Pullrite does not have an installation kit that will fit the 2013 Ram 3500 for the SuperGlide hitch at this time. There has been quite a controversy over the 2013 Ram OEM fifth wheel packages because it was released before there were any compatible fifth wheel hitches or adapters available. Dodge also changed the design of the 2013 Ram trucks which required changes to aftermarket...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit Recommendations for a 2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • There are a couple of components needed to install a 5th wheel trailer hitch in a truck. Starting with the installation kit, there are 2 types. There is a universal kit and there are custom kits. If a truck has a custom kit option available, as your truck does, I always recommend it over the universal installation kit. The reason is that the custom kits come with brackets specifically designed to fit your truck and this translates to less drilling and about half the installation time over...

  • Installation Instructions for Curt Universal 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit C16101
  • The installation instructions for Curt Universal 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation Kit # C16101 are linked for you. With this base rail hardware kit you can install a set of compatible industry-standard-rails (ISRs) like # C16204 or # C16104 (gloss finish). These rails will enable installation of a 5th wheel hitch like the Curt E16 # C16115. If you need a wiring harness for the 5th wheel you can use part # PK11893-11932 from Pollak. The linked video shows installation.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for 2015 Ram 3500 Dually and Reese Hitch
  • As far as fits go the situation was that on Curt kit # C16426-204 they had excluded dually models. But we have installed this kit on a dually model and have been told by Curt recently that it will fit. So if your 2015 Ram 3500 does not have the factory prep package for a 5th wheel hitch, you should be able to use this Curt kit. And your Reese hitch will fit it. But I can tell you that Reese installation kit, # RP50085-58, will fit dually models for sure and your hitch will fit this installation...

  • How to Find the VIN on a 1984 Terry Taurus camper
  • Since there are no standards as to where the VIN will be you will need to do a little bit of searching. Unfortunately it can be placed pretty much anywhere on the camper, but it is generally somewhere on the tongue or along the frame of a camper. It could be right out in the open on the manufacturer's plate, tucked away, or even stamped into the frame. If you know what the serial number is you could try calling the manufacturer as well since they should have a record of that. You could...

  • Custom Wedge for a Sidewinder and Curt E-16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • If the universal wedge you are using with your Sidewinder did not lock out the pivot point of the trailer at the hitch, which is what the purpose of a wedge is, then that is what would have caused the problem. When the wedge locks out the pivot point that will allow the trailer to pivot 22 inches further back. But the turret on a Sidewinder (which is where it pivots 22 inches back) can also be locked out. So if the wedge was not in the right place and the turret was locked out the trailer...

  • 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommended for Use with Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • The Curt Q series of fifth wheel hitches cannot be used with Reese Revolution or Sidewinder pin boxes because the jaws are too wide on the hitch. I spoke with my contact at Reese to confirm this. One option would be to go with the E16 hitch you referenced part # C16115 and then the wedge part # 30861. Or for a hitch more similar to the Q16 in features I would go with the Reese 16k Fifth Wheel part # RP30047. This has a 2 jaw system as the Q16 so it would provide a smoother ride quality...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Hitch be Installed in a 2014 Dodge Ram with Rambox
  • The issue with the Rambox is that the manufacturers of hitches and installation kits have not tested for fit on models with the Rambox. The issue is the bed is more narrow on models that have the Rambox feature. We have heard customers who have installed 5th wheel hitches in Rambox models. But they have to use Sidewinder replacement pin boxes to move the trailer pivot point back so as not to hit the stock pin box against the bed sides. I have linked the Sidewinder information page to...

  • Recommendation for Fifth Wheel Trailer that Only has 2 Inches of Bedrail Trailer Overhang Clearance
  • Basically you want to tow your trailer totally level with between 4 and 6 inches of clearance between the overhang of the trailer and bed rails. You should note that your rear suspension will compress a decent amount when the pin weight of the trailer is on the hitch. This could give you the 2 inches of additional clearance you would need for the trailer clear the bed rails significantly enough. Otherwise you will have to lift your trailer by either moving the axles below your leaf springs...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Hitch that is Easily Removed on 2014 Ram 1500
  • Choosing the right 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch for your 2014 Ram 1500 will depend first on the weight of the trailer you plan on towing. You will want to make sure the truck and hitch have weight capacities that exceed the trailer's loaded weight. Since your Ram 1500 has a short 5-1/2 foot bed, the safest way to tow a trailer is to use a stationary 5th-wheel hitch and replace the pin box on the trailer with a Sidewinder, if it does not have one already. The Sidewinder will be required to...

  • Installation Kit for a 5th Wheel in a 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Long Bed
  • The install kit you need to complete your installation for your 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 long bed is either the Curt part # C16420-104 which has a gloss finish or Curt part # C16420-204 which has a carbide finish. The Curt E5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Roller - Slide Bar Jaw, part # 16516, that you reference is basically designed for a short bed, however, you can use it on your long bed, but, it is very unlikely that you will need to use the sliding feature of the hitch to make 90 degree...
