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 C16116 Review

Today we're going to review part C16116. This is the Curt 00:00:04E sixteen fifth wheel trailer hitch with the rails and the universal install kit with the 16,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is an entry level hitch which offers several unique features. Has this auto-locking slide bar jaw 00:00:18 mechanism right here, provides superior security. Also, right behind it is this rear tension bar. This will work with the slide bar to clamp around the kingpin to help minimize rattle and movement.

Right over here on the handle you can see there's a hole on the handle itself and then a hole here. You can actually put a padlock through there if you'd like for extra security, so it is lockable with a padlock. If you have one you can use it, if not we do sell padlocks separately on our website. This is a dual pivoting head, has a ten degree lateral movement for simple hook-up. Underneath and in the head they permalube 00:00:50 pivot bushings to help increase your hitch lift and reduce maintenance. Has an anti-rattle skid plate right here.

Provides a nice, smooth quite ride. Now we do recommend the use of a nylon lube 00:01:01 plate. We do sell those separately on our website. They're actually listed on this product page as a related product. It will help prevent scratches on this skid plate and it lets the kingpin glide a lot more smoothly into the hitch during hookup. Right here on the side is a four position height adjustment for multiple towing applications.

When you attach the cross member to the legs you have a choice of four different rows, so you can get four different hitch height adjustments. Now, the hitch height is measured from you truck bed to the top of the hitch plate. You want to be able to tow that fifth wheel and keep it pretty level with the truck bed, so the range would be anywhere from about thirteen and a quarter up to seventeen inches. Now, another nice feature on this, you can see it has the pins and clips right here. If you take those clips out, slide the pins out, you can remove the head and then that'll make the cross member and the legs a lot lighter so you can actually take those out also. So, it makes it very easy for just one person to remove the hitch from the truck. Now, if you notice I have everything laid out here.

The base rails right here, universal rails, are included. And the insulation kit, universal insulation kit is all included. Does come with a nice set of detailed instructions and telling you how to install it all. Now, the hitch itself is a sturdy steel construction with a nice carbine 00:02:15 black finish. The gross towing weight capacity on this is 16,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 4,000 pounds and I have mentioned, the hitch height adjustment is from thirteen and a quarter inches up to seventeen inches and it's in an inch and a quarter increments you can adjust it. What I'm going to show you now is we're going to show you how the hitch operates. Here's an example I'm going to use. This is what your kingpin would look like. It's on the pin box of your trailer, so I'm going to show you how your trailer would install. So, when you're ready to hook up what you're going to do, take the handle, just flip it straight up, then what you'll do is pull it all the way out and when you've got it all the way out you'll hear it click and lock in open position. Then what you'll do is, this will be the kingpin on your pin box when you're hooking up, you'll see what will happen is there's a tension bar right here, as this kingpin goes up against this tension bar it pushes it in, releases that slide bar that goes across. The tension bar still keeps some tension on the kingpin, as you notice it's very secure. The handle falls down and once it's in the down position you can see it won't open and then you can put your padlock through there to give you the security so no one can open that up. When it's in the down position it won't open up. You'll be all ready to go and if you want to remove it just flip it up again, pull it all the way out, just like that, locks open position, your kingpin comes out. That should do it for the review on part number C16116. The Curt 00:03:44E sixteen fifth wheel trailer hitch with the rails and the universal installation kit and this has a 16,000 pound weight capacity.

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

Went together and functions perfectly. I bought the fifth wheel, the rails, the trailer brake controller/ wiring and the trailer wiring harness all together. It got o me in 2 days! One of the few purchases I made that everything actually fit right out of the box and worked. I would recommend buying from etrailer.com to anyone who needs the right stuff fast. TC 229435

I love my 5th Wheel Hitch, At first i was hesitant of it, i never pulled a 5th wheel before. This hitch is so heavy duty and has been a great tool for major situations where i thought the trailer may possibly disconnect in harsh roads. It has never let me down or has never disconnected. Very Good Hitch. 340655

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.

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

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

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

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

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


Successfully installed this hitch even in a RAM Box. I did remove 2" from the handles so I have the proper clearance for the RAM box. That shortened length hasn't changed my ability to unlock the hitch for either function even being 5'-8". I do think this installation method with U-bolts that go around the frame is easier than the 1/2 ton version I installed which pulled knurled bolts through the factory frame holes to hold the support brackets. 512542

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


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

So here I am 1 year later and 7000 + miles later having towed/hauled a 30' Keystone Cougar with the Curt E16K hitch and bed rails. I installed the item and it was fairly easy with the help of a friend to help tighten bolts and nuts. On the rails I have the E16K Curt Hitch in a 2007 - 2500 Dodge Ram Cummins. I used to remove the Hitch after every trip. That lasted for the first 2-3 times. It is darn heavy to remove and put back in. So now I leave it installed in the truck and remove it when/if I need to haul something in the bed. Hope this helps your decision and Happy Hauling :o) 307813

This is a great product and all the parts and hardware arrived in tact. Had a few issues with the under bed mounts due to my truck is the 2017 power wagon and more parts had to be removed to get installed and relocate harnesses. over all installation took a good day even with a mechanics back ground. Also will be installing hellwig air bags to accommodate coil springs. I really liked that etrailer customer service called me to verify my order. After that the package arrived with in a week. Really happy with the parts and etrailer service. 477054

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

This is my first hitch. I decided to go this route after finding out the dealership wanted over 1500 to install rails hitch and plug. Install was not too aweful bad I did the install in about 4 hours of everything. I took my time so nothing would be screwed up. The install videos where awesome and very discriptive. 346172

I've only towed my camper once with my new hitch so far and it worked just fine, when i bought it, it arrived on time and in good shape, the only little problem i had was part of the steel under the release handle wasn't painted so when it rained rusty water came out the handle tube and kind of stained my rubber bed liner, but it was an easy fix. anyway i'm happy with it ! P.S. the vehicle specific frame mount makes the set-up much quicker and eaiser than the universal mount . 305663

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

Product was as advertised. With a standard 6.5ft box on my truck I was always worried about the front of my 5th wheel hitting the cab while getting into some of the tight turns needed for some camping spaces. This hitch has eliminated that worry. As a bonus with the hitch in the rearward position I can now easily see the hitch while hooking up the RV. Very happy with the speed in which etrailer processed and shipped this hitch. 493089

The hitch is easy to put together as I have a 2016 2500hd I had to bolt it inn the very top holes to clear my box. There seems to be alot of plat in the king pin lock a clank and clunk starting and stopping. Id buy from etrailer again they are a great company this product was built for what I paid its a middle of the road hitch. I will upgrade at some point 377732

It works I don’t care for the hitch after a year. There is to much slack in the hitch and no adjustment. Don’t like the handle you have to turn just right to disconnect. Wouldn’t buy it again matter of fact gonna switch it out this year as I don’t like it.

Thanks for your follow up Myron. I have confirmed with my contacts at Curt and if you would like you can change out the head unit of your current system and use the # C16520
Replacement Head Unit for Curt A16 and Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 16,000 lbs
$401.47
. This head unit offers upgraded features in the coupler head, handle and adjustable height adjustability of the head to the base. If you were to switch out the heads only it would be more cost effective that getting an entire new 5th wheel hitch, and you would be able to utilize your existing underbed install kit, rails, and slider portion of your existing system. However if you would like to consider a different hitch set up, I have provided a link for your reference that includes the 5th wheel hitches that have the same capacity of your exisiting system for reference.

This 5th wheel assembled and installed with ease. Was advised that it would install without moving my air bag suspension. This is not true. If you use the custom vehicle specific brackets, you will have to remove airbags if equipped and re-install. Had that little issue not popped up, install would have taken about an hour or two at most. 487231

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


This 5th wheel assembled and installed with ease. Was advised that it would install without moving my air bag suspension. This is not true. If you use the custom vehicle specific brackets, you will have to remove airbags if equipped and re-install. Had that little issue not popped up, install would have taken about an hour or two at most. 487229

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt E5 in Fifth Wheel


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

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

  • Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch and Base Rail Compatibility with 2017 Ford F150 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16115 will fit the industry standard base rails compatible with your 2017 Ford F-150. If you don't have the base rails yet, then I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50087-58 confirmed to fit your truck. These brackets won't require drilling into your truck frame. If you want to use the kit # C16116, it will work with your truck, but you will need to drill into your frame...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2006 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • For your 2006 Ford F-250 long bed there are universal 5th installation kits and custom installation kits. The difference, besides cost, is how long each takes to install and how much drilling is involved. The less expensive universal kit, # RP30035, will fit your truck. But it will take the better part of the day to install and you will have to drill into the truck frame. The custom kits, such as # RP50082-58, cost more but install in about half the time compared to the universal...

  • Can Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Hitch, # C16116, Be Converted To Slider Hitch By Using Hitch Roller Adapter
  • You will need two items to convert your CURT Fifth Wheel, # C16116, to a slider fifth wheel hitch. You will need to attach your CURT E5 head to the R5 Roller Adapter for CURT E5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16505. Then, you will attach the CURT E5 head and the adapter to the CURT R16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Roller, # C16560. Then, the CURT R16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Roller should be installed in the rails on your truck. I am sending a video link to the CURT hitch Roller being...

  • Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch and Install Kit Recommendations for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • The Curt E16 hitch you mentioned includes the # C16100 universal install kit that is compatible with your 2015 Silverado 2500. The kit uses four brackets mounted to the truck frame as attachment points for the bed rails. You will need to drill holes into the truck frame to install the frame brackets. This being said, the E16 hitch provided with the # C16116 wouldn't be a good choice for your truck. In order to provide proper clearance between the front of the fifth wheel trailer loft...

  • Inexpensive 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2011 Ram 3500 Long Bed
  • The universal installation kit that comes with Curt 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16116 will only fit your 2011 Ram 3500 long bed with the addition of bracket # RP58023. Then the installation will be similar to that of installation kit # RP30035-023. However, if your truck has overload springs, which is likely on a 3500 series, then this installation kit will not work. So instead of the Curt hitch and universal installation kit I recommend the Curt Semi-Custom kit, # C16301-200, which does...

  • Does Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit # C16116 Require Spacers, 2011 Toyota Tundra
  • According to the Installation instructions (linked for reference) for the Curt E5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Rails and Universal Installation Kit, # C16116, for Toyota Tundra applications Spacer Kit, part # C16302, is required. You will need to stack one 3/16 inch and one 5/16 inch thick slotted spacer to avoid crushing the truck bed. Any of the installation kits, custom or universal, for your truck will include or require additional parts for the best fit.

  • Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 Long Bed
  • 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. This kit requires a lot less drilling than a universal kit which means you save a lot of time on installation. The estimated install time for this kit is a mere 1-1/2 hours. 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 E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/Universal Install Kit Fit a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Yes! I checked with Curt and 5th wheel trailer hitch with universal installation kit # C16116 will fit your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500. I have included a link to a video review of this product for you. I also recommend installing a 7-Way trailer connector in the bed of your Silverado using # 41157. This will make hooking up the trailer easier than plugging it into a 7-Way at the back of the truck or having to extend any of the wiring to reach.

  • Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Rails Only for a 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 Short Bed
  • Generally speaking if you have a short bed truck, like your 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 6-1/2 foot bed, then you would need to use a slider hitch and not a fixed hitch. That is unless the trailer is very narrow or it has a tapered front cap that was designed to be towed by a short bed truck. Otherwise the trailer could make contact with the truck cab when making tight turns. If you already have frame brackets that you want to use then you would need to get the hitch and rails separate...

  • Will Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch and Universal Install Kit Fit a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Short Bed
  • Curt 5th wheel hitch and universal installation kit # C16116 will fit your 1997 Dodge Ram. But since you have a short bed I recommend the slider version, # C16616, so you will have more clearance when making turns while towing. If your truck has the factory 7-Way connector at the bumper you can add an in-bed harness # C56071, that will plug in line with the factory 7-Way. This allows you to have 2 functioning 7-Ways without the need of an extension. If you want to use an extension though...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for a 2006 Ford F-250 with Firestone Air Bags
  • There are a few different Firestone kits that fit your 2006 Ford F-250. As long as the kit you have is NOT F2452 you will be able to install a 5th wheel installation kit. For a custom kit for your Reese hitch I recommend the Reese custom installation kit # RP50082-58. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing an example installation for you. You can also use Curt installation kit # C16448-204.
