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 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

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

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

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

Hi,I am looking at this particular hitch set up Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w R16 Roller - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for 2007 Toyota Tundra - Gloss Finish Part Numbers: 16516, C16468-104I am in the process of looking at hitch options but I would like to know the exact weight of the hitch when assembled together. How much does this hitch weigh? Thanks.

comment by: Patrik K - 01/16/2014


Our shipping weight is 216 pounds. I called my contact over at Curt and assembled outside of the boxes, it tips the scales at a bit over 200 pounds. There are a few things that make up the extra weight over other designs. The bars that the slider system use are solid round stock, not hollow tubes, that are secure to plate steel bases. The legs are made of plate steel rather than stamped. All of these adds up to put the hitch at about 50 pounds heavier than other similar setups.

Its very well made and works great. I would buy this again. I have had no problems with it, very happy.

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel

The unit was as described and installed without a hitch (no pun intended). This unit went into a new GMC 1500 and we did not have to cut anything to install the mounting bolts -- but it was a bear to get the nuts on the bolts and then tighten. I used a universal (free) installation kit and we had to weld the braces to the frame. eTrailer always delivers on time and so far always with the correct product - wouldn't think of going to any other company. 206872

  • Comparing Reese, Pro Series, and CURT 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • We can look at four 5th wheel hitches to compare. The Reese Hitch, # RP30047, is the highest priced of the 4 fixed 16K 5th 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 in price is the Pro...

  • The best option for the Curt E5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16115, and your 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 long bed is the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram, # C16420-104.

I have included a link to the installation details below. You can look at all of the available 5th wheel trailer hitch and installation...

  • Will Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Hitch with Universal Install Kit # C16116 Fit A 2011 Dodge 2500 Long Bed
  • The Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Rails and Universal Installation Kit, part # C16116, includes the base rails and the universal installation kit. I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said the universal installation kit will fit on a 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 with 8 foot bed.

  • 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...

  • Recommendations For Fifth Wheel Hitch And Sidewinder On 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab
  • Using a fifth wheel adapter like the Andersen Ultimate Connection, part # AM3200, will give you an additional 5 inches offset in the bed of your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500. Since there are no adapters that can be used with a Sidewinder pin box, I am afraid the Andersen Ultimate is your best bet. Another option is to remove the gooseneck you currently have installed and replace it with a stationary fifth wheel hitch and rails that can work with a Sidewinder pin box like part # RP61422.

  • 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...

  • Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendations for a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500
  • In order to pick out the best fifth wheel hitch for your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab you will need to know the length of your truck bed. If you have a 6 foot bed you will need a hitch with a slider so you will be able to make 90 degree turns. If you have an 8 foot bed a fifth wheel hitch without a slider is what you would want. The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16422-104 that you referenced would work well as a rail installation kit because it will minimize drilling and...
