Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A16 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


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.

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 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.

I am writing this review more for etrailer, than for the hitch. I am happy with the hitch, and it is what I expected, but more than that, I am happy with the support that etrailer personnel provided. They researched the product, gave me all the options, and made sure that it was exactly what we needed. It is rare to find the level of support that etrailer gives their customers, and great prices to go with it! 466656

Purchased this hitch, install kit, and wiring harness for a new to me 2015 F-250. After watching the installation video and reviewing the included instructions the install went smoothly. The only deviation from the instructions was instead of using a unibit to drill the 9/16" holes in the bed I used a Rotobroach hole cutter(the holes are cleaner and the bit does not drift. I hooked in to my fifth wheel for the first time on Saturday. 696986

The hitch was simple to install. I also purchased the custom brackets to bolt the rails to the frame. Everything lined up exactly as it should. No drilling on the frame!!! I will review the hitch once I get more use out of it. It looks great though. 598057

Service was excellent. Curt design for hitch fitting in to bed rails poor, hitch mounts to loose. Different from other fifth wheel hitches that I have had. Noise problem is going to be a consistent problem. Not happy with that, they need a design change. 465337


Comments
Manufacturing tolerances and slight differences in rail placement dictate that the fit between the rail and the hitch cant be super-tight. Rail dampeners that would help quiet that connection are available as part #16900.

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

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


Comments
Could not be happier with this hitch. Have never had any coupling or uncoupling problems even in odd angle situations. Does not rattle or let the trailer chuck around. Easy to move. In and out of the truck. The powder coating is fading and showing some signs of surface rust but this is most likely due to it living in the truck unprotected. I have since moved the hitch into a 2017 ram 2500 with the puck system. I bought the puck mount and every thing bolted up nicely. I keep the standard rail legs under the bed of the fifth wheel should I ever need to pull with a truck that doesn’t have pucks. This has happened once when our truck broke down. Would definitely recommend this hitch.

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

After a year, I love this hitch. It’s easy to hook up and unhook unlike the auto slider hitch it replaced. Paint is still good. Silver stuff is still silver. Has a small patch on the head where the camper hitch slides on. Unit performs well. It is quiet during turns. I feel safe using it. I will buy a curt hitch again if ever I need a new one.

Mechanics had some issues installing on Ford 2019 F250 - so cost me a little more but looks nice now done. etrailer staff member very knowledgeable, and item arrived sooner than expected which allowed me to get it installed sooner. Can't wait to hook it up to my new (to me) 2013 Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen 37 ft 5th wheel trailer. I like that this hitch is lighter than others - I am 60 yr. woman so weight is issue when moving it to use truck for other uses. I can unlock it and move to front of bed and use the rest without someone else's help. 760642

    The Lippert Turning Point pin box on your trailer means that you will need a fixed 5th wheel hitch for your 2018 Ford F-150. The Curt A16, # C16120, is a great option for you. This hitch is rated at 16,000 pounds, so it has plenty of capacity for the Grand Design 150 series of trailers. The dual jaw design is safe and secure and the cushioned head improves ride quality.

  • Is a Dual Jaw System Better Than a Slide Bar System for a 2018 Ram 2500 Without Pucks
    You are absolutely right! The slide bar design you have now is a good entry level setup but as you mentioned there is a good amount of chucking and jarring that is associated with this. The reason for this is because there is just a flat edge against the round kingpin which works but does not produce the best ride.The dual locking jaws are going to do a much better job of holding the kingpin tighter which translates to minimal chucking and jarring. For your 2018 Ram 2500, I recommend...

  • How to Reduce Chucking when Towing 5th-Wheel Trailer without Replacing Trailer Pin Box
    There are a couple of ways other than replacing the pin box on your trailer that can help to reduce the chucking you are experiencing. First, I simply recommend checking to make sure the tongue weight of your trailer is around 10-15 percent of its total loaded weight. If the tongue weight is too light, this can lead to chucking issues. You can simply redistribute some of the cargo in the trailer in order to put more weight up front. Another option is the fifth-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.

    No need to worry, Typically it's harder to remove the head after use.

They do recommend the head and legs be removed as one unit and say that if there is binding they recommend loosening the four 14mm leg mounting bolts to release them from the rails.

    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...

    The Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16120 referenced in your question is indeed compatible with the Reese Sidewinder King Pins, like the part # RP61420 that you purchased. When using the two products together, you will just need to use a wedge like the custom Sidewinder Wedge # C16992. This wedge is custom made for this particular A16 5th Wheel Hitch and is required to prevent the Sidewinder from pivoting in the hitch.

  • 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.

  • Determining 5th Wheel Towing Capacity of 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I wasn't able to track down an exact weight figure without knowing the specific sub-model of your Fleetwood Triumph, however based on my research it looks to be somewhere between 10,000 an 11,000 pounds. I definitely recommend verifying this number. The true towing capacity of your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 is dependent on a number of factors including engine size, drivetrain, cab style, axle ratio, and bed size. With this in mind I'm not able to locate the exact capacity of your Silverado...

  • Would Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Hitch Have Capacity for 10k Dry Weight Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The Curt A16 fifth wheel hitch part # C16120 has a 16k capacity so it would pretty easily handle the weight of a 10k fifth wheel trailer. This is a really nice fifth wheel hitch that was recently updated by Curt. We have found that our customers really like it so I would recommend it highly for you. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2014 Ram 1500 Long Bed and is Payload Part of Towing Capacity
    Some vehicle manufacturers differentiate between towing capacity for pull trailers and fifth wheel trailers but there was nothing I could find for a 2014 Ram 1500 which stated there was a difference in towing capacity depending on the type of trailer. Additionally I took a look at an online copy of your 2014 Ram 1500 and it stated that a 4x4 Laramie with a 5.7L V8 and automatic transmission had a max towing capacity of 10,050 lbs and max payload capacity of 1,390 lbs. Payload is essentially...

  • Can Curt A16 Hitch Replace Pullrite 20k ISR Hitch and Fit Same Rails
    Yes, the Curt A16 hitch part # C16120 will fit the same rails as your PullRite 20k ISR hitch. The ISR actually stands for Industry Standard Rails which is what the Curt hitch fits so it would be an easy, drop-in fit to the rails you have now. The height range of the A16 is 13 to 17 inches but that's not counting the additional height the bed rails add which is what the dimension you took included. So this hitch will easily give you the same height you need of 18 inches from top of hitch...

  • Determining Turn Clearance in a 2016 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 Foot Bed to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
    First of all, the Custom Install Kit # RP56034-53 is confirmed to fit your 2016 Ford F-150 that has a 5-1/2 foot bed and the Curt A 16 # C16120 will fit into the base rails and work great with a Revolution pin box. You'll also need the wedge # C16992. To determine if this will give you enough clearance to make a full 90 degree turn you'll have to do a little measuring and a little math. You'll need at least 4 inches to safely make a turn on most trailers. First determine where the...

  • What Clearance Is Needed When Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
    I have attached a drawing that shows how much clearance is needed when you are towing a fifth wheel trailer. 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.
