Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

Three-Point Indicator System

A16 Color Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator - either the one on the handle or the one on the hitch itself - to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green).


Curt rebranded this fifth-wheel trailer hitch by changing its name from Q16 to A16 in 2016. All features and specifications remained the same.

I like the dual jaws. They hold the king pin tighter than the slide bar style. I also like the color coded hook indicator on the front, although a complete visual inspection should be done each time you hook. The only shortcomings I can see are the height, it's a little short even on the highest adjustment, and the quality of the Chinese fasteners leave a little to be desired. Other than that, it pulls securely and quietly. It couples and uncouples very smoothly. Overall it is a nice heavy duty piece. 137021


Comments

The first one I bought had some internal problems and became very loose around the kingpin when towing. I talked to an Etrailer rep and he put me in touch with the Curt manufacturer directly who sent me a new hitch and had me send the old one back at no expense to me. I was very pleased with Etrailers and Curts customer service. They listened, understood, and solved the problem very quickly once it was identified. Thank you, and I WILL look to you for my further trailer needs.

Unit appears solid and well built. Unit feels and appears well built. Nothing about the craftsmanship seems cheap or shoddy. Everything that moves is crisp and tight. There are no rattles or loose components. I feel confident towing with this hitch. If I have not towed with it yet. The hitch has a sleek strong appearance as opposed to my Superglide on a previous truck that took up a lot of bed space. I had to assemble the unit. Instructions seemed unclear in regard to the handle assembly. With deliberate inspection, I was able to figure it out. Legs were easy to bolt on with assistance. I am happy with this hitch. Website said I needed to purchase a line plate separately. I forgot to get one but it didn't matter because one (plastic disk) was included with the hitch. I paid for the shipping upgrade to ensure the hitch arrived before hurricane Mathew. I placed my order at night and eTrailer provided me with a tracking number the following morning. Shipping time said 3-5 days. I ordered late night on a Monday and unit arrived on Thursday afternoon. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and experience with this website. 304468

I was fully expecting a hitch in excess of 100 pounds to show up in a destroyed box. This did not. They had taken the Time and effort to cover the box with an additional layer of cardboard and it must have had a million staples in it. It was almost comical, you will need a crowbar or large screwdriver to get it open. However, when I did finally get the package open I found a perfectly un scratched hitch with no missing parts. I have not pulled with the hitch yet but , it does look like it is going to perform great. I'm using this in a 2006 ram 2500 4x4 short bed pulling a 2015 forest river Salem and it allows 91 degrees of turning due to the clipped corners on the front cap of the trailer. I will be curious to see how long the rubber isolators last before needing replaced and if they are readily available. Also the curt sticker on the hitch was peeling off when I took it out of the box, would be nice to get that replaced. 342381

I received the hitch and rail kit one week after the order was placed. During that time I watched two different installation videos on etrailer web site for a ram 2500 and 3500 for the rail kit. The vehicle specific rail kit is what I ordered and it was very easy to install. After the watching the videos a few times I barely needed to read instructions to install. Total time took three hours to assemble hitch and install rails. Kit was missing one washer but the hardware package had broken open in the main box so it may have fallen out during shipping. I have not towed with it yet but did hook it up to test hitch height and it was very easy to use. I would definitely recommend watching install videos, technicians do a good job of explaining how to install and different techniques on install that you can't get off the instructions. Overall I feel it's a good product only gave it a four out of five because of the missing washer and a few of the nuts were harder to get to than appeared in the videos. Also having the right tools is a must as the techs do in the videos. 217145

The Curt A16 arrived in good shape and was "straight forward" to put together. I did watch an online video that helped. The only slightly challenging part was to get the hitch head removed from the base (to facilitate attaching the legs). Since the hitch isn't secured to any rails, you need to have a second person help stand on one side of the hitch and then help jiggle the hitch head out from the center mount (it's a snug fit). Other than that, it was easy. The amazing thing is that I ordered the hitch on a Tuesday morning (free shipping via UPS) and the hitch arrived on Thursday morning! I didn't even use the expedited shipping option! Great customer service by etrailer (Ahren), was excellent, as usual. I think the best part about this hitch is that I'll be able to remove it from the truck in two parts by myself. The separated parts still aren't exactly light, but very manageable for me (a healthy 63 year old male). 398770

The only problem I encountered was with UPS. First, they ignored a request not to deliver early and second they left my hitch on the porch where it was rained on.... The Curt Hitch was exactly as promised and the earliest installation I have done in a long time. It was simple and quick to install and fit my existing rails without a hitch (no pun intended). It will be a couple of weeks before I will be able to test it but it is a great looking hitch and looks like it will live up to all the reviews. etrailer shipped this quick! I received notification that it would be delivered the next day and I did not purchase one day service and assumed it would not be delivered until after the holidays. The is the reason I contacted UPS and paid to have the service date changed, which UPS ignored and delivered anyways. I strongly recommend etrailer and will be using them again in the future. 330137

We had this installed in our 2014 RAM 2500. We have only pulled the 5th wheel a couple of times but this hitch has worked very well. Hooking up and unhitching is very easy and straightforward. I like the colored indicator system that tells you when the hitch is locked on the pin. The head unit has rubber blocks where it is mounted to the base unit. This allows the head to rock side-to-side when you are parking the trailer on uneven ground. It also allows the trailer to rock slightly as you are pulling it and the movement of the trailer is not transmitted to the truck. However, it is kind of difficult to separate the head unit from the base because the rubber blocks fit very tightly in the pockets in the base unit. A little WD40 helps. At this point, based on our limited usage, I would definitely recommend this hitch. 408644

Fast shipping and great packaging for shipment - perfect! As heavy as the hitch is, it came to me with no damage or issues. This hitch isn't listed for my truck but the double locking system is what I liked. I had a Reese basic 15,000 lb slide bar hitch that was allowing too much slop. I measured all a parameters and this hitch fit the bill. Reviews on similar Reese style were worrying me so I tried the Curt. Towed for first time yesterday and there was a noticeable difference in the experience. Pin held tightly with much less movement and noise. Hooking up and unhooking were very easy. I have the short bed F150 and my fifth wheel is a Open Range Light series so it is cut to accommodate cab clearance; thus the hitch works for me. In the end, hitch worked perfectly and etrailer was great - price, shipping and service. 376889

Customer service for product selection and order entry were excellent and focused on my interests and needs. The hitch, custom installation kit, and harness were shipped very quickly and arrived sooner than expected. Everything arrived in excellent condition. Assembly and installation instructions were very clear and specific, and I was able to assemble and install everything with no problems and in a very reasonable amount of time. Total cost was roughly half of what it would have been if I had purchased the products and had them installed by a dealer. I am very satisfied with my experience dealing with etrailer.com, and would highly recommend them to anyone shopping for towing products. 294100

I've been reading past reviews about hitch packaging arriving damaged. Mine came in reinforced with a bit more stapled cardboard around the box. I really don't care about that as long as I receive the hitch undamaged and with all the hardware, which it was. Simple to assemble. Placed it on my existing rails from a Husky 16k slider that got replaced. The Curt A16 exceeded my expectations with greatly reduced chucking, no more rattling as long as you put the rubber shims between the legs and rails. I only towed my 33ft toy hauler from my storage space which is about a 30 mile trip. It is so much smoother and quieter pulling than my Husky hitch!! Don't hesitate to buy one for such a great price! 361239

Got My Curt A 16 Hitch on the 3rd. day after ordering, and put it together yesterday. I was able to put it together by Myself right in the truck bed. The only problems I ran into was that I pulled the big center pin, but I couldn't get the top section to come out. It was too tight. It was not a big problem, it just made it a little heavier than it should have been. The other thing was putting the legs onto the main body. You have to do this with an end wrench, because You can't really get in with a socket or an impact. I love the hitch and it is simple, and I thought the price was right. 313561

I installed the fifth wheel installation kit and hitch last week. There was a problem with the dimension given for the front rail. Instead of 52.375" the actual measurement for my truck was 52.75". Using the 52.375" measurement left half the hole covered by the frame rail. Drilling the .125" pilot hole didn't point out the problem - it cleared the half blocked frame rail hole. My truck is a 2015 Silverado High Country 3500 HD diesel, DRW long bed with factory sprayed in bed liner, built after August 14, 2015. Overall, I'm happy with the both the hitch and the installation kit. 229094

Customer and product support is better than great as well as prices, service and available selection. Being new to 5th wheel hitch requirements I was able to get all the info needed on type and additional parts required. Received everything on a timely basis, had it installed locally without any problems what-so-ever. This is a great company by any standard and sure to be the next in retailer success. They have covered all the basis in what it takes to be not just a good retailer but truly a great retailer. 373015

I am very impressed with Etrailer. They called me the next morning after ordering the fifth wheel hitch. They just wanted to reconfirm all my info. Never had any company do that before. Now for the hitch review. This hitch is so much better than my old Reese. Hooks up and unhooks so smoothly . I like how the latch surrounds the pin. my old Reese was starting to eat a groove into the back of my king pin. Again Great hitch and GREAT customer service from Etrailer 375842

This my second Curt hitch. First one was a slider worked very well for the short box Chevy truck that I had. When it was time to trade I got a Ford F250 long box so I had to purchase another. This time I ordered a non-slider hitch. The hitch has worked very well. Took a little longer to install than the slider. I had to drill the frame, but it was not a big deal. I purchased both hitches from etrailer. Great price and great service. 352127

I bought the Curt Q16 to replace a slide-bar hitch. I really like the way the jaws wrap around the kingpin. It also has a lot smoother pull than any other hitch I've used. The composite bushing that the head mounts in really helps absorb the jerking you get while driving down some of the bumpy highways, especially when pulling a double hook-up. The status indicator that can be seen inside the cab is also a plus. 273933

The CURT A16 hitch went together very quickly and fit perfectly into existing rails, which held a Reese 14K. Have not pulled with the set up, but hitch looks like a very well build solid hitch - very impressed with construction. We are planning a 5000+ mile trip, so upgraded to this. Box holding the hitch was very damaged from shipping and was almost ready to completely burst, not heavy enough for item weight. 338629

first time ever installing a 5th wheel in a truck. custom brackets are worth the money. once rails are installed the hitch is a breeze. instructions say 90 minutes. took me four hours to install the rails and hitch. just take your time if you have never installed one. I think the 90 minutes is for the guy who installs these all the time. 205904

Package received in good condition, all parts included, and on time. Assembly was very easy, although I had to remove and lower the head height. Top holes are supposed to be for a 17 in height, but gave me 19 in. Could be a problem for users who need the lowest setting of 13 in. Hooked to fiver easily! 341050

Installed it in a 2015 Silverado 2500 WT with an 8' bed. Very easy to install, and came 90% assembled. Right after installing the 5th wheel hitch, I drove 1,600 miles round trip to buy a 40' 5th wheel 800 miles away. Pulled it back from Kentucky to Florida with no issues, worked perfect. Great hitch 319650

The Curt A16 5th wheel hitch arrive a day ahead of the shipping estimate in good condition. It was easy to assemble a fit my existing rails perfectly. Was much lighter and more compact than the Super-glide it replaced that came from my old truck. We are looking forward to our next trip. 396593

This hitch works very well. The only minor issue that I had was the zerk fittings or grease fittings on the jaws of the hitch are recessed in a hole and the hole is to small a diameter for a grease gun fitting to fit into. Other then that the hitch performs very well. 240470

Installation went well, but I wouldn't want to try it without a hoist. The matching gooseneck adapter and 5th Wheel plate fit perfectly. Made a quick 550 mile trip pulling our 5th wheel camper and was very happy with the ride and quietness from the plate. 308378

The hitch is still working as it should. The swivel head is a necessary upgrade over a two way swivel

Good value for the money. Easy to use. If you are not careful what angle you park the truck/trailer, you can't get the pin out. Also, It was in the truck for maybe 3 months and the color on the indicators is gone. 243309

Every thing fit well and was easy to understand. The only problem was my arm was to big around to get between the gas tank and the frame to get the nut and washer on had to get a small armed freind. Works great. 190857

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • Pros and Cons of 5th Wheel Hitch With a Slide Bar Jaw Versus a Dual Jaw Hitch
  • The difference between a slide bar jaw and a dual jaw is how tightly the fifth wheel king pin is held. Both do a good job securing the king pin, preventing it from coming loose. The Dual Jaw will hold the king pin much more tightly, preventing the king pin from rattling around in the pin box. Any movement of the king pin in the hitch jaws will be easily felt and heard in the truck cab. Every time the you brake or accelerate, if there's any movement in the hitch jaws-you're gonna feel...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Silverado 2500 HD Short Bed
  • First, please note that a slider hitch is recommended for your 2015 Silverado 2500 HD with 6-1/2-foot bed unless a Sidewinder pin box is installed on your 5th wheel. If you do have a Sidewinder (or Revolution) pin box then you can safely use a fixed 5th wheel hitch. I suggest a custom-fit installation bracket kit. These reduce overall installation time and also avoid the need to drill into your new truck's frame. Universal kits cost a bit less but for a one-time effort like a 5th wheel...

  • Comparing Curt A Series and Q Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • The A series of Curt 5th wheel trailer hitches, such as # C16120, is the newest version and is replacing the Q series. The A series jaws overlap whereas the Q series butt up against each other more than overlap. And the bearing and shaft that the head pivots on is different between the 2. They do look very similar, in fact the specs and design are identical like you said, but you can think of the A series as the new and improved version of the Q series.

  • Can a 2016 Ram 1500 with Air Suspension Package Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There is a way to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a 2016 Ram 1500 that has the air suspension package. To do it you will need to start with a gooseneck hitch, # C607-658. Then you can use the X5 adapter # C16210 and place a 5th wheel hitch on it. I recommend the Curt A16, # C16120 for a long bed or # C16521 for a short bed. Manufacturers have not yet figured out a way to install 5th wheel brackets on a Ram that has the air suspension package. It has been out for awhile now but still no...

  • Is it Possible to Adjust Jaws on Curt Q16 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about your Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16120, and he said a little play is to be expected in order for the pin to rotate freely. So the jaws should not fit too tightly around the king pin. The jaws are operated by springs. The first time you used your 5th wheel hitch the springs may have been a little stiff. By the second time you used the 5th wheel you likely loosened up the springs and the jaws, resulting in the play you noticed. Also if...

  • Is the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter Compatible with a Spray-In Bed Liner on a 2012 Ram 3500
  • As long as the spray-in bed liner of your 2012 Ram 3500 is under 1/8 of an inch thick it will fit just fine. My contact at Curt said that they did build tolerances into the Curt X5 Adapter # 16310 to accommodate for that. If it is thicker than 1/8 of an inch you might have some problems though and you might want to remove a little bit of it if possible. The adapter is compatible with your Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16120 that fits standard base rails. I'm glad that you were...

  • Compatibility Of Reese Revoltion/Sidewinder Pin Box with Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • At one time, the Curt Q16 fifth wheel hitches weren't compatible with the Reese Sidewinder/Revolution, but now that Curt has developed a wedge that's compatible, part # C16992, it's perfectly acceptable to use the Curt Q16 hitch, like part # C16120. The wedge isn't compatible with the Q20 or Q24 fifth wheel hitches, so it's not recommended to use either of those in conjunction with the Revolution/Sidewinder. A Reese Revolution/Sidewinder wouldn't normally be used with a sliding hitch,...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Comparison Reese 16k 30047 Vs. Curt Q16
  • Based on our experiences here I would recommend the Reese 16k hitch part # RP30047 over the Curt hitch part # C16120 that you referenced. The Reese hitch seems to be a bit more reliable and the Curt Q series comes back more often with damage around the jaws of the hitch. Both hitches will work great, but since the Reese is a bit lighter and tends to have fewer issues I would recommend that route for you. This hitch would work well with the Mopar Adapter part # RP30154 that you referenced.

  • Is the Curt E Series 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With a Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • The Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16115 is compatible with a Reese Revolution Pin Box. This combination is what you will want to use with your 5-1/2 foot bed on your 2015 Ram 1500 since most sliding 5th wheel hitches do not provide the 22 inches of clearance that a Revolution Pin Box does to enable you to make tighter turns with your short bed. The E16 is a good entry level 5th wheel hitch, but you will most likely experience quite a bit of chucking and jarring since the king pin will...

  • Reducing Chucking While Towing 2015 Grand Design Reflections Fifth Wheel for 2013 Ford F-150
  • To reduce the amount of chucking that you are experiencing when towing your 2015 Grand Design Reflections Fifth Wheel with a gooseneck adapter, I recommend installing a fifth wheel hitch on your 2013 Ford F-150. If your F-150 has a 6-1/2 ft bed, I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider, # C16521, and the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16120, for an 8 ft bed. Both options are cushioned hitches that provide additional shock absorption between the truck and...

  • Compatibility of 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation with AirLIft Air Bag Kit
  • The specs for the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System # AM3200 indicate "no pivot" because this hitch is a fixed-type adapter that does not pivot front-to-back or side-to-side the way an actual 5th wheel hitch head can. For example, Curt 5th wheel hitch # C16120 uses an axial bearing that lets the head assembly pivot on the base to make hitching easier. With the Andersen adapter the hitch ball is rigidly fixed and coupling the trailer to it will therefore require...

  • Increased Chucking of 5th Wheel Trailer After Installing Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • It is a little strange that you are experiencing more chucking with a cushioned dual-jaw hitch that you were with a slide bar hitch with an non-cushioned head. But it could be because the head of the Q16 pivots on a large pin and could be moving a little bit back and forth causing the issues. But there are other things to check just to be sure. If the jaw is not closed and locked all the way or if you are high hitched then it would have that symptom but then again the trailer would also...

  • Comparing the Curt Q16 and Pro Series 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • The Curt Q16 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16120 is a great option. It has the dual jaw like you want and the head pivots front to back and side to side. This hitch is also cushioned for a smoother ride and the 3-point indicator system lets you know if you are hooked up properly or not. It also comes with a lube plate attached to the head. This is the hitch I would go with. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. The Pro Series hitch # PS30855 is also a good entry level hitch....

  • Can a Reese Sidewinder be Used with Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection
  • I do have some options for you, however you will not be able to use the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection # AM3225 with a Reese Sidewinder, like the # RP61420. The Reese Sidewinder cannot be used with any Gooseneck Adapters because they do not offer a secure enough mounting point with the gooseneck ball and you do not want two pivot points in your towing setup. If you want to use a Reese Sidewinder, you will need a standard 5th-Wheel Hitch like the Curt 16K Fifth Wheel # C16120...

  • Pickup Truck for Towing Grand Design 5th Wheel with 8500-lb Dry Weight
  • Generally we recommend 3/4-ton long bed trucks for 5th wheel towing. Although the 2007 - 2013 Sierras with 6.2L V8 have 400+ horsepower (enough power for your trailer's weight) the short bed makes maneuvering the 5th wheel a challenge since you have reduced turning clearance. Short bed trucks CAN be used for 5th wheels by using a slider hitch or better still a Sidewinder. A Sidewinder replacement pin box extends the pivot point rearward from the hitch by 22-inches, almost double the additional...

  • Can Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitch Be Used With Sidewinder Or Revolution Pin Box
  • I called my contact at Curt about the Q16 fifth wheel hitch. They told me that the note about the Q16 hitch not being compatible with a Sidewinder or Revolution was for the 20K and 24K hitches and is not the case for a Q16 stationary hitch like part # C16120. The 16K hitch made by Curt will work jus fine.

  • How to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with a Truck that has a Bed Shorter than 6 Feet
  • Since your truck bed is shorter than 6 feet your only option for towing a fifth wheel trailer will be to replace the pin box of your trailer with a Sidewinder pin box and use a stationary hitch. Check out the FAQ article I attached on Sidewinders. With Sidewinders a slider hitch is not necessary as the clearance to make sharp turns is there already. When towing with a standard king pin, the fifth wheel trailer turns or pivots where the king pin is connected to the hitch. With the sidewinder,...

If you prefer the traditional 43 inch rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50066-58.

  • Can Reese Revolution Pin Box be Used with a Ranch Hitch 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter
  • The Reese Revolution pin boxes cannot be used with any 5th wheel to gooseneck adapters according to Reese. Your best option is to replace the gooseneck hitch in your truck with a 5th wheel hitch. For that you can use Curt installation kit # C16470-204. Since the trailer has a Revolution pin box in it you can use a fixed hitch even if the truck is a short bed such as the A16 from Curt # C16120. And for a custom wedge to use the Revolution and A16 use # C16992.

All of the hitches you referenced are sold with out rails and would slide right into your fifth wheel rails. The Curt part # C16120 would be a great option. It has a wrap around double-jaw design that will provide excellent king pin contact. On the back of the head is an indicator that tells you when the hitch...

You will want at least 5 or 6 inches between the overhang of the trailer and the bedrails. You also want to make sure your trailer is being towed level. You can make the adjustment by raising or lowering your hitch in the bed of your truck or bu raising or lowering your trailer pin box.
