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.

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

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

The Curt Hitch is awesome! This hitch has made towing enjoyable. No more chucking when I am crossing bridges or hit dips.

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.

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

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.

I really like this 5th wheel hitch 1 year later, although when buying this you're locked in to using rails (I paired this with the Curt X5 5th-Wheel Base Rail Adapter Plate for EZr Double Lock Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - C16220) which moves the center right in front of the axle, so I cannot achieve a full 90deg turn, I just have to be aware of it. I looked at alternatives to move/offset the ball mount closer to center over the axle but for now I'm sticking with this hitch setup. 628759

Purchased this hitch about a year ago. Very easy to install. I really like the fact that depending on dot color you will know if the hitch is securely ready to tow. Way better than our previous hitch. 615266

The order arrived quickly and the packaging was in tact. All parts were included along with instructions. I did refer to the on line video which was very helpful. The hitch did have some scratches, but I’m confident more scratches will come with use. Great price and a good value. 608927

I bought this hitch based on reviews and price. I was pleased upon inspecting the product and instructions. I bought a 5th wheel camper and traveled from North Carolina to New York without a "hitch". My first time towing a 5th wheel and once I got over my jitters, I drove like the trailer wasn't there. The installation kit was installed by my mechanic. I felt better traveling, knowing it was installed correctly. This was my first time ordering from you and I have to say, your service and support was an unexpected pleasure. This follow up proves your commitment to excellence. thanks again. 608501

Hitch arrived from etrailer in 2 business days! UPS beat up the box pretty good but etrailer double boxed and has a sheet of plywood on the bottom of the box so there was no damage to the hitch. We wanted the new hitch quickly and our contact at etrailer, Kim, did a follow up with us to let us know that the box shipped on the same day we ordered it. The hitch was easy to assemble. As noted in another review the head fits very tight into the centerpiece due to rubber insulators. I'm anticipating a quieter ride than our old hitch. Always a pleasure doing business with etrailer. Thanks Kim. 487683

Comments

The Curt A16 work very well all last year during extended travel time. We towed almost 7,000 miles from Texas to Florida to Seattle and Back to Texas. Everything work well but unhitching could be difficult if I used a Pivot Plate. With the Pivot Plate in place, it was hard to tell if the weight was off of the hitch in order to disconnect. I love the indicator that tells me if I am safe to tow or not, but I always test the connection before towing.

I chose this Curt hitch to replace an aging other brand hitch that was starting to give me trouble. The old hitch was getting harder and harder to release as well as making noises that made me nervous. These issues continued after carefully inspecting and lubing the old hitch so it was time. I strongly recommend etrailer for both service and price. Awesome job ladies and gentlemen! 482271

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

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.

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

  • 5th Wheel Rail Kit for 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel
  • I checked with Reese and the correct custom frame brackets for 5th wheel base rails on your 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel is the part # RP56018. These brackets do require 48" wide base rails and for the complete kit including both the brackets and rails you can use part # RP56018-53. The # RP50142 bracket kit that you referenced is only a fit on the Ram up through the 2018 model year so they won't work on your 2019 model. Since your Rebel has a 5-1/2 foot bed the only way to tow a 5th wheel...

  • Sidewinders can work with the Curt A16 fifth wheel hitches.

You'll just need the correct A-Series wedge part # RP31016 and your hitch will be ready to go.

The base rails can be a pain if you need to slide something in but other than that they really don't take up much space. I recommend the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30047 with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit...

  • Comparing Curt A16 and Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitches
  • The head design is slightly different for the A16 hitch # C16120. It's the more recent version of the Q16 that you also mentioned. They made the heads strong enough to be able to be used with a Sidewinder pin box and they upgraded the warranty from 10 year limited to lifetime limited. Also, the Q16 features the 360-degree movement with the spherical axial bearing to improve the pivoting of the hitch head. This feature however, is why the Q20 is not compatible with a Sidewinder or Revolution...

  • Differences Between Curt Q and A Series Fifth Wheel 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. The Q20 features the 360-degree...

  • How to Use a Sidewinder Pin Box with a Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • We have a wedge designed by Curt that allows a Sidewinder to be used with the Q16 fifth wheel hitch. For that you would want the part # C16992. In the past Sidewinder has stated that they do not recommend the use of any of the Curt Q Series hitches with the Sidewinders since the jaws of the hitch are very wide. But now there is a wedge available that allows the two to work together. I attached a help article on fifth wheel hitches for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ford F150
  • Using a Sidewinder along with a stationary fifth wheel hitch will eliminate the need to exit the truck cab every time the hitch needs to be slid rearward. You'll have the needed clearance without needing to adjust anything. The Sidewinder model you need will be specific to the pin box on your Fifth Wheel, so you'll need to know the manufacturer and model number of your existing pin box. This information should be found on a sticker or label on the pin box. The FAQ article I'll link you...

  • Will Fixed Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit Demco GM Rail Kit Adapter DM6194
  • Yes, your Curt A16 fifth wheel hitch without a slider part # C16120 would fit the Demco rail kit adapter part # DM6194 that you referenced. It provides the industry standard rails that your A16 hitch is designed to fit.

  • 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...

  • Compatibility of 5th Wheel Factory Prep Kits with 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The 5th wheel hitches we offer that fit specific factory-installed prep packages, such as the B&W # BWRVK3300 which is specific to the Ford factory prep, are limited to use in that prep kit. For the Ram factory prep package the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers the direct fit. The only truly universal type of 5th wheel hitch is the ISR type (industry standard rails) like # C16120 that will fit into any brand of standard above-bed rails. There are adapters that allow an ISR hitch to be installed...

  • Fit and Compatibility of RBW Lil Rocker Base Rails with Curt Q16 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt # C16120 and Lil Rocker RBW were both designed to fit industry standard base rails. If your current RBW rails are industry standard, then the Curt Q16 # C16120 will fit the rails you have installed in your truck bed that a RBW Lil Rocker was once installed on. I have linked a picture with measurements of the industry standard rail dimensions for you to reference. I have linked the above mentioned product to this page for your purchasing convenience.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Rockwood 8280ws with Revolution Pin Box on Ford F-250 Diesel
  • The Husky Silver Series 16K S 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # HT31313-31314 is restricted as you mentioned. The manufacturer states: Do NOT use this Husky fifth-wheel hitch with any type of rotating pin box or with pin boxes that use a wedge, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, and 5th Airborne Sidewinder. For your Revolution Pin box, I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16120. This hitch has a secure interlocking...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Rail Kit and Hitch for 2015 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • For your 2015 Ford F-250, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026-58. There is no drilling into your frame required with this kit because it utilizes holes already there for a custom fit. The above bed rails will require drilling, but the installation is easy knowing the rails are in the correct position. This kit will come with all the hardware needed for installation. For a hitch, a double jaw hitch is...

  • Can Curt Base Legs # C16920 be Installed on Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521
  • The Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521 that you believe you have can be adjusted from 17-1/2" - 21-1/2" in regards to height. If you were to swap out the R16 Slider for the Replacement Base Legs # C16920 then this would give you the Curt A16 # C16120 which has a height adjustment of 13" - 17". Typically we do recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch for short beds like what you rave on your 2014 Ram 350, but if you don't believe you are going to need the sliding...

  • Lowest Profile Hitch Compatible with Sidewinder Pin Box
  • The lowest profile hitch for regular trucks is the Curt A16 # C16120 you already have with the 13 inch height is right in there with a few others like the Pro Series 20K # PS30119 for the lowest profile when using base rails. If you don't need the rails then the Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 30,000 lbs # RP30054 is the shortest with 9-1/2 inch height. If you change out your base rails, then the Demco Hijacker SL Series Flat Deck 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...
