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

First the bolts were a little short. But they quickly sent longer ones. Slightly tight fitting in bed rails. Used it once got more tight. After the second time had to use two by four to pop it out.. After a couple more tines of use it won’t budge at all. I think the hitch is spreading out. Wouldn’t have taken much to beef it up with some kid of support going across near the bottom. Not as much side to side tip of the 5th wheel plate as advertised. Get much more than 1 1/2” you have to put block under the truck wheels to get unhooked. A little forward and backward movement of 5th wheel pin but not bad. Other wise it works good. 720878

I received my 16k 5th wheel mount in 2days as promised, the packaging was extremely well done and everything arrived in tact. Assembly took about 20 minutes about the same amount of time as it took to read the instruction manual. Assembly is simple and you don't need a lot of mechanical skill to assemble it. But you do need a torque wrench to do it by the book. I wasn't sure if the mount to rail pins came with the assembly but they do. I am very pleased with this purchase and I will look to etailer for any future trailer needs. 678197

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.

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

    Yes, the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16115 will work with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails part # RP50142-58. 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 part number you need is the # C16017 and you'd be set.

    The Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115 is large enough to tow a 11,200 lbs trailer regardless of the length. For your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram - Carbide Finish # C16420-204 which will fit your truck frame without any drilling.

  • Will Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit Husky Base Rails on 2001 Ford F-250?
    Your Curt E16 # C16115 will fit industry standard rails which are 22 inches apart like those from Husky. I am unsure of the model of rails you already have, but the correct Curt rails for your 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty are # C16443-204, which are different than the # C16300-204 and # # C16441-204 rails that fit a 2004 F-150.

  • 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...

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 Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit the Factory Puck System in a 2012 Ford F-250 SHort Bed
    In order to use the Curt E16 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16115 with the factory installed prep package on a 2012 Ford F-250 you would need to use an adapter, # RP30156. Also, since you have a short bed truck, you would need the slider version, # 16516. But there is a version of this hitch that will fit directly in the factory puck system. It is # C16515-16020. That way you would not have to use an adapter so it is one less step when installing/removing the hitch from the truck.

    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...

As for the fifth wheel itself, the slide bar jaw of the E16 does not lend itself as well to using a pivoting pin box like the Turning Point.

If you also need the hardware for attaching your rails to the underbed brackets you would want a Replacement Hardware Kit # RP58430.

  • Best Sidewinder Wedge Kit Fit for the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    I reached out to my contact at Curt and they advised me that once you actually bolt the Sidewinder Wedge # C16991 on the Sidewinder there should not be any wiggle room. The Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt E-16K Fifth Wheel Hitch # 30861 will provide the same fit as the # C16991. I recommend using the # C16991 or the # 30861 instead of the Replacement Universal Wedge for 5th Airborne Sidewinders # 201100 because they are specifically made for the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch.

The Curt E16 hitch part # C16115 will work in the bed of your 2018 Ford F-250 short bed without the factory rail kit, and I know it has a very attractive price, but for a similar...

    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.

The slots in the rails that the E16 would use are 21-1/2 inches center to center when measured side to side and 22 inches center to center when measured front to back. I've showed these dimensions on the diagram I've edited for you. For a short bed truck, in order to prevent the rear of the cab from colliding with the front corner of the fifth wheel during turns, you'll need to use a sliding fifth wheel...

  • Orientation Of Leg Stripes on the Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Hitch
    I see what you are saying about the stripes on the lets of the # C16115. In the instructions it shows having the stripes on the outside portion of the leg so that would be what I would recommend although I can't seem to see a reason why any other variation wouldn't work as they seem to be symmetrical.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation to Install Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2015 Ram 3500
    To install your Reese 16k fifth wheel hitch like # RP30047 in the bed of your 2015 Ram 3500 you will just need a fifth wheel rail kit confirmed to fit the truck. For that you would want a custom install Reese kit part # RP50085 which has been confirmed as a fit and would minimize frame drilling and install time. This is just the bracket kit since you already have rails. Since the hardware that attaches the rails to the brackets is considered one time use you would want to replace...

  • Will a Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Head Fit in Place of an E16 Head on a Curt Slider Base
    The Curt E16 and Q16 use the same slider base. The Q16 head is # C16520 so it will fit the same slider base that is on your E16 now.

  • Inexpensive Sliding 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab Short Bed
    On a short bed truck you would want to use a slider hitch to be able to make tighter turns without the trailer hitting the truck cab. Curt hitch # C16115 is not a slider so I would not recommend it. The slider version is # 16516. The least expensive slider hitch is # PS30094 which is rated for 16,000 pounds. I have linked videos of both slider hitches for you. They do work with adapter # RP30156.

  • Problems Mounting Curt E16 5th-Wheel Hitch to Rails on 2010 Dodge Ram 3500
    It's difficult to say what could be causing the problem you are having installing your Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16115 without knowing the manufacturer of the existing rails on the 2010 Dodge Ram Pickup. The Curt E5 is compatible with above-bed base rails by B&W, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley but it's possible the particular rails on your truck are simply not compatible. The front and rear rail should be 22 inches apart when measured from the center of...
