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).


Non-Binding Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' and 6-1/2' beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


The round-tube design of this slider allows for relatively uninhibited movement of your fifth-wheel hitch. Because your hitch can glide smoothly and easily along the rods, there is less chance of binding.


With straight, flat contact points, as found with square-tube sliders, tension can build between the slider and the hitch when your truck and trailer are somewhat out of line or are on uneven ground. As a result, it can be difficult to properly activate the slider when your truck and trailer are not in a straight line.


With a round-tube slider, there is more give between the contacting surfaces, allowing better mobility of the hitch system. Fewer corners means less tension buildup. Activating a round-tube slider is easier, and operation as a whole is smoother.


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

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - C16520-16020 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the slider for the Ford towing prep package and this has a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part and is designed to fit the Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty Trucks with the 6-3/4' bed and the factory rail kit starting with the years 2011. On any custom fit part, what I always like to recommend is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this will work for your application. This 5th Wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th Wheel Trailer. The part that I'm describing would be the hitch head on the slider. Basically what I'm demonstrating is I'm putting it on this display stand that has the under bed rails that would be on your Ford truck just to show you how it installs, how this would look. This is how it would look in the truck bed of your vehicle. The built-in slider, right down here, this will provide the clearance that's required for your short bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds.

Slides very smoothly on these rounded non-binding rods. Basically, it will allow you to move 12" from towing position to maneuvering to get you that clearance. The slider handle which will lock and unlock the slider itself does use a color coding system to show when it's locked or unlocked. Basically the green ring will show right over here right now because it's locked in the towing position. When you pull the handle out and unlock it, a red ring will show right over here around the rod to show you that it's unlocked.

It gives you a good indicator of the position that the slider is in. The head itself uses a two-jaw locking system. Because of that, it'll give you the 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact and that'll get you less rattle, more security than a lot of the slide bar models. On the head itself, it does use also a color coding back here to let you know . A 3-point indicator system that'll tell you if it's ready to couple, uncouple or tow and basically these colors are visible from the cab of the truck. You'll be able to look behind you out the back of the cab and see the color that's showing, it'll tell you what the jaws of the hitch head, what position they'll be in. Let me try to rotate this just to give you an idea what we're talking about.

If I spin this all the way around, I think we get it enough there you'll be able to see right underneath the head itself, you'll see the three indicators and then this is where the color would show. Right now, it's showing a round green, means the jaws are closed and locked ready to be towed. When you open this and you're ready to hook up, it'll show a triangle that'll be yellow and that'll mean that it's ready to be coupled. By chance, if you go to couple and it doesn't couple correctly, it would show the hexagon and in red that'll mean that it's uncoupled. Those three colors showing will dictate you can look out the cab and it'll show you what position those jaws are in. You want it to be ...

For towing, you want to have the green showing. That's means it's correctly coupled and ready to go. Now the head on this is a fully articulating torsion head for controlled coupling. Gives you a nice stable quiet ride. You can see, pretty much goes any position you like. The handle itself is lockable. Right now it has the pin and clip that comes with it. It is large enough you could put a padlock through there if you'd like for extra security. The handle itself is a short throw, single handle operation. I'm going to demonstrate that here in a minute just to show you how that operates. The head is a self-aligning head which will pivot for simple hook up. Now also they make this easy for one person to remove the hitch from the truck bed and they do that by, if you pull this clip out, this large pivot pin, pull the large pivot pin out. You can remove the hitch head from the cross member and then you can take the cross member and slider out of the pucks in the truck bed to give you the full access you need. It's made for one person to remove it from the truck. This part also includes the plastic lube plate. We do recommend you use this. It's made to be put on your kingpin and once you put it on the kingpin it'll help it glide smoothly into the hitch during hook up and it also protects this hitch head from any damage. Now, installing the slider into the under bed system it's pretty fast, pretty easy to do. Basically what you'll do is just drop the slider into the four receiver pucks that are built into your Ford factory under bed rails. These rails is what you would have on your truck. All you'll have to do is pop the pin and clip off, open these handles 90 degrees and when you do that that turns those tabs in there that'll unlock it from the rails. You do the same on that side, you'll be able to lift that right out of there and then you'll have the full access to your truck bed. When you go to install it, leave these open on both sides, drop it into the pucks, turn it 90 degrees, that'll rotate that tab and lock it into position in each puck. Then again for security, put your pin through the handle and then put it through the hole in there and then through the second handle and then lock it and you can see it holds the handles in position so they don't loosen out and open up. This whole hitch and slider is a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice carbide black finish to it. A few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity is 16,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 4000 pounds. The amount of travel, in other words the amount this will move from the tow position back to the maneuvering position, is 12" to give you that clearance. What I'm first going to start with is to demonstrate the hitch head, how this works. Basically what you would do, and I am going to have . I got a kingpin sample here just to show you this is what the kingpin would look like. This would be attached to your pin box on your trailer. What you'll first want to do is unclip the handle. We'll pull down on the clip, pull the pin out, and your handle's released. You can see now to open it all you have to do, it's a very . As I mentioned it's a short throw single handle. Just pull it, pull it back, boom both jaws open up and you're ready to go. Just like that. What you want to do then is we'll take our lube plate. We'll go ahead and push it onto the kingpin. Again, just push it all the way down on there. Then what you'll do is this'll be the pin box, so when you're sliding the hook up . See if we can get this to close, does use some . Once it slides all the way in, you can see once it's all the way in you notice the handle slides into the locked position. The dual jaws are both around it to give you the total 360 degree contact. Then what you'll do is drop your pin and clip in or if you want to use a padlock do that and that would lock it and you're ready to go. Now if you pull into the campground and you want to get out of the tow position, put it into the maneuvering position . Let's go ahead and finish locking this just for safety sake. Now you're going to move the slider. What you'll want to do is go ahead and take this handle and just pull it out. Now to put it into maneuvering position, you want to pull the handle and then move the handle towards the cab of the vehicle. We'll pull it and then push it that way. It might be hard to see but there's a red ring now showing. That means it's unlocked. With the slider unlocked and as you move, you'll notice that the whole hitch head will slide. When it gets to maneuvering position, it'll hit the groove, lock into position, the handles lock. Look over here, it's a green ring, means it's locked. You're in the maneuvering position, you can do sharp turns and get your trailer wherever you need it. Once you're done and you want to get back on the road and tow, you want to move that hitch, 5th wheel hitch head closer to the cab, pull out . The only thing you have to do for it is move the handle towards the trailer. Pull it out, move it that way, and what that would mean is then as it goes back in closer to the cab, the towing position, boom it'll lock into place. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with the slider for the Ford towing prep package and it has a 16,000 pound weight capacity.

I LOVE my sliding hitch. Prior to this, I had a standard hitch and it was difficult to make some sharp turns with my 5th wheel RV due to a short bed in my pickup. The sliding hitch has solved this problem - I haven't had a turn that made me cringe thinking the camper would hit the cab! The only difficulty I have had is pulling the release to set the slide in motion has been a bit tough, but I think it will become easier the more it is used. I would encourage anyone with a 5th wheel RV to buy this type of hitch versus a standard. 612012

Good product. Fits my truck and works well pulling my 12,000 lb 5th wheel. The only complaint is the rubber wedge does not hold up against chucking of the hitch. It is already degraded and needs replacing. Otherwise a solid hitch. 609310

Fifth wheel jaws grave a lot of slack, when stopping and staring trailer slams forward and backwards. I bought the slider due to having a short bed truck and never used it 1 time in a little less than a year. Hitch also rusted within a few months. Hitch is unbelievably heavy, it required at least 2-3 people to remove or install. I have sold the hitch and installed the Reese goose box on my fifth wheel and like it so far. I love not having the heavy hitch in my truck all the time. 604885

Suggestions would be: make it easier to lock/unlock. DEFINITELY recommend if being installed individually to use some sort of nut lock "glue", or make sure you check each time you stop and make sure nothing has come loose. We made a trip back from SD to Tx. When we got home, one whole nut had come completely off and all but one, were prettyloose. VERY SCARY!!!! Didn't take pictures because we were exhausted after a 25hr, straight thru drive. Don't know if having it professionally installed would've helped. We had a professional install it for us. 586013

Great hitch used it on a few trips already driven over 3,000 miles. Love the dual jaws and the adjustability, my truck sits a bit higher and I was able to adjust this down to get it where it needed to be- even with the Reese adapter plate(see photo). The polyurethane is also a nice touch, makes the ride a little more cozy then a standard hitch. Use with the provided lube plate 355598

Just received the hitch the other day. Delivery was quick. Starting to put it together, I agree with some other reviews that the instructions could be a little clearer, but I will make it. Other than that, it will be a bit before our truck comes in and we can install the hitch. Fred 241513

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

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


Product was very easy and straight forward to install. Great price on this. Lighting shipping as always with Etrailer. It's Important to have a second hand as I fumbled with it myself hunched down in the garage due to rain. This item assembled weighs 178lbs. Not easy to dead lift on your knees. Due to time constraint on my part I had to do it all by myself. Work safely. As it's important to know how to use leverage to move weight. Take your time. That is the most important part. Double check your work. Even when coupling and uncoupling. Hook up is easy. Make sure your tail gate is off or down when coupling and uncoupling. Save dents/damage in your tail gate. Make sure to put the safety pin in the handle to keep it from uncoupling going down the road. It will be used to pull a 5th wheel camper to campgrounds, Florida and South Dakota to visit family and friends a couple times a year. 289307

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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.

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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.

I have only used the hitch on one short trip but at this point I am very happy with it. Shipping was fast but shipping boxes were torn open, all the parts were ok. I followed the instruction video on etrailer site and there was an error in it that took me a few minutes to work out. When installing the handle after you place the two bolts in the holes and start to put the bottom plate on the video shows putting it on upside down. I kept trying this and checking the video and it did not work, finally took it apart and looked and could see the problem. Overall very happy with everything I have ever bought from etrailer. 447726

I have had this hitch about one year now and over 5,000 miles towing. Love the hitch. It is very easy to hook up and quite when towing. So much better than the Reese I had.

Fit the puck system in my Silverado with minor depth adjustments. Very easy to use. The color codes allow you to hook up to the hitch with confidence that you are locked in. Very pleased with the product. 541758

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 itself is great! No issues to date. Its heavy so plan on 2 people or disassembly to install or remove it everytime. My only complaint would be that the position stickers that are on it are not weather friendly at all. They are either completely gone or faded so bad you can't read them. Not a big issue at all but I keep it inside in the winter so 3 months of use they shouldn't be that bad. 399473

I received my new hitch, slider package and puck system legs for my Ram 2500 and had it installed in about 2 hours. Backed up to my camper and connected with no problems once I got the camper king pin at the correct height. I like the overlapping jaws on this hitch much better my old hitch which didnt overlap. This just feels more secure. The hitch released and uncoupled with no problems. I'll be taking a trip with it soon and will know more about how it feels with 11,000 pounds connected to it but for now, very happy with my purchase. I cant submitt my review without adding some kudo's to etrailer and their customer service team. I had ordered a different hitch but had second thoughts as to it being a good match for my truck. One call to customer service confirmed my thoughts and i had a different system on order and delivered in 3 days. Awesome team. 488531

Overall I am impressed with the product and the service etrailer provides. The shipping was fast and the prices vs local competitors was cheaper. I actually installed the same day I received the hitch. Unfortunately my fith wheel head has a small dent in it, I would assume from shipping, and my hardware bag was ripped open scattering throughout the box. To my surprise no hardware was missing. The dent did aggravate me a little as to the price of the product, but will not effect the performance. Etrailer did double box all three packages the shipped which was nice, however I'm not sure they'll make a profit with the amount of staples used in packaging haha. Overall happy to have great reviews on great products to help aid in the decision of my purchase of the Curt slider 16k fith wheel. Fits nicely in my 2013 Silverado 2500 short bed with my fold back cover still functioning when not in use. I did find during installation that the heat shield worked best for me bent up than cut, also I did remove the wheels for easier access but not a necessity. There might need to be clarity on the hardware not being used via instructions, and on the bed rib spacers on the diagram. Very pleased with my purchase and will recommend etrailer in the future. 479630

Very seldom do you have a company that works with their customer the way etrailer does, I contacted them to make sure that i would order the correct 5th wheel hitch for my 2011 ford 250 supper duty. They helped me through the process based on the information I gave them and ordered product. I purchased my truck used and it had a slide in bed liner, i removed the liner to prep for installing the hitch only to discover my vehicle has a factory installed hitch rail in it. I contacted etrailer some 5 hours after my order to change the type of hitch that would fit and was very surprised by how understanding they were. I recieved my hitch a day and a half later by ups and am very pleased with the timely manner in which this purchase was handed. THANK YOU etrailer. 491111

I was really wanting to give a smiley face for this company, BUT, all of the parts and directions did not show up. It's amazing how two missing bolts can completely alter things. Most people say it took them 30 minutes to install this product. After two trips to different stores in different towns, took me two days, and two phone calls. 170793

Just installed this CURT 16K ~5th wheel hitch into our new 2017 GMC truck. It took about an hour and it would have been nice if the directions would have told you what height each set of holes would produce. I'd recomend using some marine grease on the four puck joints prior to trying to lock them in. I really like this new hitch puck truck system over the Reese hitch with the bed mounted bars. I'd highly recommend this hitch if you have the factory GMC /Chevrolet puck system. The e trailer online help was truly appreciated as it steered me to the proper hitch for our new truck. 337068

Thanks for the follow up Robin, I did want to let you know that Curt recommends using a high pressure wheel bearing grease like the ones that I have linked.

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 Curt A16 arrived a little bruised but intact. I was missing washers, but again, not a big deal. The hitch was easy to assemble by myself, taking a leisurely 45 minutes. It seems well constructed so all in all I’ll give it 4 stars. Lisa D at etrailer however gets 5 stars for guiding me through the purchase experience! 480155

All parts and materials are good quality including the paint. Directions are good, easy to follow. Packaging is not enough for the weight of the this product. Box was broken and open and some paint was scraped. Needs heavier packaging. 403400

The Curt system is really high quality. No issues at all putting the system in. One thing I do like is the position of the plate handle. It does not stick upward and is even with the plate. By designing the handle that way I can still cover my bed with my tonneau cover where other manufactures the handle was higher than the bed rail. The price was excellent and dealing with customer service was the same. 380677

Wow! I ordered the products on Monday night (after 7p.m CDT) and I had the items on my property Friday afternoon! Great shipping speed which is really order processing and getting the product out so UPS could deliver it. I ordered the Curt A16, custom rails for my 2015 F250 and the Curt harness. All three items took me about 4 hours to install--mostly by myself. The install was easy, but I needed the tools that were listed in the videos--WHICH is one of the reasons I ordered from etrailer.com --the videos for installation and product research, not to mention free shipping. I researched the products for several months before ordering, no other site compares to etrailer.com...the educational product videos really helped me make a decision. Tools that are needed or at least will help make this quicker--Hydraulic jack, safety jacks, impact wrench, Electric drill, 2 1/8" hole saw for the harness plate mount, 9/16" bit, tape measure, hammer, long straight screwdriver for tapping spacers into place, some good light, and an uninterrupted afternoon in your garage. I am so glad I ordered from etrailer.com and would recommend all of these above products. THANK YOU!!! 372773

I received the 2500HD custom fit rail kit and A16 slider hitch very quickly which was great because we were on a time crunch to pick up our new camper. I selected this hitch and rail combination after reading all of the positive reviews. A buddy and I installed it ourselves in a few hours and could not be more happy with the fitment. We used the installation video below the product description which really helped. Etrailer was great to work with and I would definitely order from them again. We will be picking up our fifth wheel this weekend and will comment on how well it performs! 409008

Fitment was perfect in my 2012 ram 2500! The curt direct fit brackets and rails were an overly simple install! If you have 3 hours to spare and no helper this is why he way to go! Looks close to cab with a 2017 sandpiper 379FLOK but you would be surprised with the clearances of the cab to coach, very good fitment! FYI just follow retorque specs. The u-bolts bind/settle/get aligned and need another tug via torque wrench. I received my packages today and pulled my coach 180 miles after install and I’m very pleased with parts delivery time and ease of install! Thanks again etrailer for a great product 484183

First off I just got done installing the hitch and I hooked on my 35ft fith wheel trailer and went for a ride with windows down sun roof open and not a single rattle , clank , or noise from the bed of the truck with this hitch . It was easy to assemble but I did have one spot where the paint got chipped on the slider during shipping so I just touched it up . Very satisfied with hitch it latches automatically when you back in to it and the slider part works like it should . 294820

I recently installed the Q16 Slider Hitch on my 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. I have used it a couple of times now pulling my 5th wheel and have had no issues with it at all. I used the slide feature twice and both times it worked very easily and had my truck and trailer at a 90 degree angle with plenty of room to spare. Great product, was delivered in a very timely manner with no issues. 448366

This is my first fifth wheel. I have a short bed so I got the package deal with the hitch and the slider. Took me about 5 hrs to install with the custom mounting brackets and rails for my 2015 chevy 2500 HD. Everything went as the instructions said without any issues. I have only pulled my RV with it one time just to try it out. Felt very smooth no rattles or pops as I have herd with other hitches. So far I like it a lot. 414028

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.

The Husky Hitch part # HT31313-31314 is a fixed hitch so it would not be ideal for you. Instead for a 16k hitch that fits the rail kit of your truck direcly and wouldn't require an adapter we have the Curt 16k hitch part # C16520-16020 which has a much nicer jaw design than the Husky you mentioned so it will provide a smoother ride quality overall.

  • Cause of Noise When Using Curt A16 Fifth Wheel in 2016 Ford F-250

There will be a bit of play between the jaws of your hitch and the king pin, so when you are taking off and braking the "clunking" you are hearing will be more pronounced.

The other 16k sliders require an adapter. Between the two Curt hitches I recommend the A16 because of the interlocking dual jaw.
