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.

UPS really damaged the hitch! Looked like it went thru a hurricane! Bent everything back into shape as I didn't have time to get it replaced. Everything works as it should. Assembly was a snap! Got all items on my order in 2 days! Great customer service (thanks Julie! ). 149490

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.

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Towing Set-Up Recommendations for 2014 Ram 1500 With 5.5-ft Bed
  • You are correct that 5th wheel towing with your short-box truck will require a Sidewinder replacement pin box be installed on your 5th wheel trailer to provide enough cab clearance for turning. Replacement pin boxes are selected based on matching the original pin box number; the linked article includes a table of various brands and models of pin boxes along with the compatible Sidewinder and Air-Ride Sidewinder pin boxes that will work as replacements. For example, if your 5th wheel...

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Installation Kit Recommendation for 2008 Ford F350 and Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • For a fifth wheel rail installation kit you will want to go with a custom install kit like the Curt Rail Kit part # C16443-204. This kit has been confirmed to fit your 2008 Ford F-350 and will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling. This kit is also compatible with your Curt E16 Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16115.

  • 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...

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...

  • What 5th Wheel Hitch Should I Get for my 2010 GMC Sierra with a Short Bed
  • Since your truck has a bed that is shorter than 8 feet long you have a couple different options on 5th wheel setups. One option is to purchase a 5th wheel hitch with a slider, the other option would be to install a Sidewinder on your fifth wheel trailer and use a non-sliding fifth wheel hitch, the benefit of the Sidewinder over the slider is that you would not have to worry about getting out and adjusting the slider every time you had to turn sharply. If you have a 1500 Sierra the...

  • 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.

  • 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.

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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 would recommend a transmission cooler given the weight of the trailer and the terrain you will be pulling it through.

  • How to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Dodge Ram with 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • The only option you have for towing a trailer with a truck that has a 5-1/2 foot bed is to use a Sidewinder. Since your bed is so short, a slider hitch wouldn't give you enough clearance to make tight turns. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have know in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once you figure...
