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 - Fixed 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 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

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

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

Haven't had a chance to use the hitch yet but I got it installed without too much trouble. It took about 4 hours to install, the frame mounting brackets and rails, at a leisurely pace. The unit seems to be very sturdy and it is certainly built heavy. I'm looking forward to testing it out soon. 649826

Received Curt E16 fifth wheel hitch in just 3 days! Package was perfect condition! Rails were already installed on my truck so it took about 20 minutes to install!

I called etrailer on a Friday evening around 7:00 pm to order a 5th wheel hitch for my truck. I received an email stating it had already been shipped that evening and would arrive on Monday via UPS. I also called to order the hitch and the person I talked to was very helpful. I would recommend etrailer to anyone. 634680

Ordering process was smooth. Value was excellent, Thank You. Order tracking was spot on. Despite the best packing efforts from Curt, and overpacking by Etrailer, the FREE 3 state UPS trip was rough. GOD LOVE THEM, the unit was 105 pounds so expect some jumble, and offer the UPS guy some water. The Curt hitch was exactly as described. Its better built than I expected, and I expect it will give years of good service. I am sure there are fancier products, but I wanted SIMPLE and WELL MADE. To me, that is RELIABILITY. Thank you CURT and Etrailer! 617628

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

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 .

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

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

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

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

  • 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...

The Reese install kit will give you what is referred to as industry standard above bed base rails which works with most above bed mounted 5th wheel hitches from Reese, Pro Series, Husky, Etc. The Curt E16 is a great starter hitch and when paired with the Reese install kit will give you everything that is required to hit the road. However,...

If you do not already have a 7-Way connector in the bed of your Silverado I recommend installing the Bargman # 50-97-410 which will make connecting and disconnecting your trailer wiring much easier.

  • 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...

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. Next we have the Curt E5, # C16115.

  • Is the Curt E Series 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With a Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • The Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16115 is compatible with a Reese Revolution Pin Box. This combination is what you will want to use with your 5-1/2 foot bed on your 2015 Ram 1500 since most sliding 5th wheel hitches do not provide the 22 inches of clearance that a Revolution Pin Box does to enable you to make tighter turns with your short bed. The E16 is a good entry level 5th wheel hitch, but you will most likely experience quite a bit of chucking and jarring since the king pin will...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Chevy Silverado HD
  • I would recommend you go with a custom installation kit part # RP50066 for your 2013 Chevy Silverado. Custom installation kits will install in about half the time as universal kits and will minimize drilling. If you also need the hardware for attaching your rails to the underbed brackets you would want a Replacement Hardware Kit # RP58430.

  • Which Hitch is Better for Use with a Sidewinder a Reese Select Series 16K or Curt E16
  • It is not really a fair comparison between Reese hitch # RP30047 and Curt hitch # C16115. The Reese hitch is absolutely better. That hitch in particular has been around a long time. If chucking is a concern you definitely want to avoid hitches that have a slide bar jaw like the Curt E16. They allow for too much play between the king pin and the jaw. The Reese hitch has the more secure dual jaw design so you would experience less chucking with it. I have linked a video review of this...

  • Fifth Wheel Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 2500 with Rambox
  • I have a solution for your 5th wheel towing needs on your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with a Rambox. I recommend to start with a fixed fifth wheel like the Curt # C16115 and the Installation Rails that go with this system are # C16427-204 they are custom fit for your truck. This will give us a rigid base to then attach a sidewinder to. You will need a sidewinder because the issue is the bed is more narrow on models that have the Rambox feature. This allows the trailer pivot point to be...

  • 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...

  • Can a Sidewinder Pin Box be Used with a Curt E-16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • Yes, the Curt E-16 5th wheel hitches such as # C16115 are compatible with Reese Sidewinder replacement pin boxes. If your E-16 hitch is a slider hitch then it will have to stay locked in the tow position at all times when using it with a Sidewinder. The only thing I recommend to add is the custom wedge for Curt E-16 hitches # C16991. The custom wedge ensures the best fit between the Sidewinder and the hitch.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Will the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16115 Fit a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
  • Assuming that your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD has an 8 foot bed, the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16115, will work for you. If your truck isn't already equipped with compatible 5th wheel rails, I recommend going with the Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, # C16411-204. These custom fit brackets mount to existing holes in your Chevrolet Silverado's frame to minimize drilling which helps cut down your installation time when compared to installing a universal bracket system.

  • 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...
