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.

2014 Ram 2500


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

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

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

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

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

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


2593

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.

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


Excellent product. Installation wasn't to bad, did take some time but overall wasn't horrible. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles but works flawlessly. I chose this hitch for two reasons. 1. It's a simple yet reliable design from a great manufacturer. 2. I needed the lower height adjustment than the Q series offered. My '06 dodge doesn't have any aftermarket suspension parts but I do run 285 70/17 tires and it does sit a little bit higher. Glad I did because the lower height adjustment is almost perfect. I highly recommend getting a lube plate to go with any fifth wheel hitch, very cheap and no mess. As far as etrailer.com goes. This is the best place I've ever ordered from. Great communication and very fast shipping. The hitch arrived days faster than expected even with the bad weather delays. You can't go wrong with this item or this company. I will definitely be ordering from here in the future and will be buying more Curt products. 238344

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


As a first timer towing a 27' fifth wheel, I was really nervous. And it didn't help that the people who installed my hitch threw away the directions. Thankfully technology and YouTube came to the rescue with a video on EXACTLY how to hitch up. And once I figured out that the jaws have to be opened to accept the kingpin, I was well and truly set. The hitch worked like a dream and hooking up was easy. Yesterday, I did it all by myself using the rearview mirror. Thank you so much for a wonderful, easy to use product. I am no longer nervous about hitching, unhitching and towing. Now if you have another product to help with the whole backing up thing..... 254388

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

  • Difference Between the Curt Q16 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 Q16 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 Q16 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Fit of Curt 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit # C16305-204 on 2014 Ram 1500 w/ Coil Spring Suspension
  • If you look at the diagram I grabbed from the installation instructions, you can see exactly where on the frame the brackets would attach. Stock 2014 Ram 1500 models are equipped with coil springs, but there is an optional air suspension available as well. If your truck has the air suspension, the Curt # C16305-204 will not work. Since the air bags take the place of the coil springs, it will be readily apparent which suspension your truck has. The bed rails provided by the # C16305-204...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Will a Curt E5 Hitch fit in the Same Rails that a Curt Q20 Uses
  • The Curt Q20 that you referenced is designed to fit in the industry standard fifth wheel rails. The Curt E5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16115 you are considering is also designed to fit in the same rail design so it should work well for you. This hitch also comes with the hardware to secure it to your rails.

  • Will Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16115 Fit a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 with Rail Kit C16420-204

I attached an install video that shows the rail kit being installed in a 2006 Dodge Ram just like yours. That will walk you through the entire process.

  • Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500
  • To determine if the truck can handle the weight of the trailer, check the owners manual for the towing capacity and weight carrying capacity of the bed and compare that to the gross trailer weight and pin weight. If you determine the truck can tow the trailer, you will want to take some measurements in order to determine if you will be able to safely make 90 degree turns. On short beds, the king pin will be 1-1/2 inches forward of the center of the axle. Measure from that point to the...

  • Recommendation for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for Use with Sidewinder on 2010 Dodge Ram
  • Sidewinders, like # RP61410, are designed to be used with stationary hitches but can be used with a slider hitch as long as the slider remains locked in the towing position while towing or connected to a trailer. I have included a link to our FAQ article on Sidewinders for reference. To determine the best 5th wheel trailer hitch and installation kit for your truck, I will need to know a little more about it. Is your Big Horn a 1500, 2500, or 3500. Does it have overload springs. Is it a...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a 2014 or 2015 Ram 3500 with Rambox Side Storage
  • Since you plan on towing a fifth wheel trailer, the best option for the truck you are looking at, is an 8 foot bed without the Rambox. The issue with the Rambox is that the manufacturers of the hitches and installation kits have not tested for fit on models with the Rambox. As you mentioned, the bed is narrower which could interfere with the operation of the fifth wheel locking handle. Another issue you will run into is you will need to replace the OEM pin box with a Sidewinder. The reason...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2012 Nissan Titan
  • A 5th wheel trailer hitch has to be connected to the truck frame. If I understand the Utili-track system correctly, it is secured to the bed but not the truck frame. This is probably why there are not hitches that I have seen that use the Utili-Track system to mount a hitch. You can use the Curt 5th wheel installation kit # C16470-204 that you referenced on either the 5-1/2 foot or 6-1/2 foot beds on the 2012 Nissan Titan. The difference is that on a 6-1/2 foot bed you can use a slider...

  • 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.

  • How to Make Sure 5th Wheel Rails are Square and Straight before Mounting Trailer Hitch
  • We have always found the Lil Rocker as a fit for industry standard rails. It is possible like you said that it was twisted or bend somehow. You can also check that the rails are lined up properly by measuring from the center of the outside mounting slot diagonally to the center of the opposite slot on the other rail. Then repeat with the other side outside slot. The measurements should be the same. If not then the rails are not square. Take a look at the picture to see what I mean....

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

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.

I would recommend a transmission cooler given the weight of the trailer and the terrain you will be pulling it through. Beyond that, make sure you follow the owners manual recommendations for towing and you should not have a problem. If you like the Curt hitches, you can use installation kit # C16418-104, and...

Sidewinder cannot be used on the Q series of Curt hitches, like # C16521, as the jaws are too wide. If it is the E-series like part # C16115 that has the narrower jaws they can be used. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you...
