Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - C16520-16026 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt A16 fifth wheel trailer hitch for the Nissan Titan XD towing prep package. This has a 16,000-pound weight capacity. Now, the application for this hitch is 2016 and newer Nissan Titan XD trucks that have the factory installed towing prep package. Basically, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer.This one uses the high strength interlocking two jaw system. It provides a nice 360-degree jaw to kingpin contact. Basically, the jaws fully wrap around the kingpin to minimize noise.

It gives you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models. Also, if you notice on the front there's a grease zerk fitting on this jaw and then one over on this jaw, so it has two built-in grease zerk fitting for easy lubrication of the jaws. You just put your grease gun on there and pump it full of grease.Now, the head on this is a fully articulating head. It gives you controlled coupling, a nice, stable, quiet ride. It does self-align for easy hookup, so it'll help suppress road shock and reduces the bothersome towing noise.

Now, the main feature on this hitch, it has a three point color coded lock indicator system. It'll tell you what position the jaws are in to ensure secure towing. What's nice about it is these lock indicators, the colors are visible from the cab, so if you're in the cab right here looking back at the colors and the shape it'll tell you what position the jaws are in.Right now with the jaws closed and locked, showing a green circle. Green circle means they're locked, closed, ready to tow. If we pop the pin and open the jaws it'll show a yellow triangle back here.

That yellow triangle means the jaws are open, you're ready to couple. Now, if it shows a red octagon that means the jaws are locked open, you're uncoupled. You do not want to tow in that position. It will self-reset in that position. As I mentioned, this is all visible from the cab.

If you look back it tells you what position it's in.The handle on this is a nice single throw handle operation to open the dual jaws. It has a pin and clip in it to keep the handle in the closed position. Basically, just pop the pin and clip out, and you'll see it's tethered so you won't lose it. All you have to do is take your handle, pull it out, rotate it back, and it automatically pops open the dual jaws. Now, this will self-reset to the ready to couple position after you uncouple your trailer. Once it closes the hole that lines up that the pin and clip goes through is actually large enough that you could put a padlock through there for added security if you wanted.Now, it does a fast one pin head removal for easy disassembly by one person. Right here, if you pull this clip off, this large pivot pin, there's a handle back here. You can pull that out. That'll release the head. You can take the head off, take the center out, take the legs out, so it helps make it come apart easily for one person to remove it.Now, this does come with the included plastic lube plate right here. This lube plate is what'll install onto your kingpin. It'll help that kingpin glide smoothly into the hitch during hook up. Stays on there to prevent any messy grease build up. All the installation hardware is included and even a nice detailed instruction manual.Now, this does offer a full range hitch height adjustment. Now, hitch height is always measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head. That's important because when you're towing a fifth wheel you want to keep your fifth wheel as level as possible with your tow vehicle. This will give you range when you bolt this in. There's about three rows of holes here, so it'll give you a range when you bolt it to these legs here. Anywhere from 13 inches to 17 inches so you can get it correct for application.Now, to install this into your truck it's a very fast, easy installation. Basically, this gooseneck post right here will drop into the gooseneck ball opening on your truck, and then right here there's two tabs that'll go into the receiver pucks on your truck bed. Basically, all you have to do to install it is there's a pin and clip here. Just open it up. Rotate this handle out and it'll rotate that tab. Rotate this one you a quarter of a turn and it'll rotate this tab. Right here you'll see the ball bearings on the post right there, so when you rotate this it'll release those ball bearings and that'll allow you to take it out. When you go to put it back in, you drop it in. Rotate this to lock those into place, and then again just rotate your handles back. That'll rotate these a quarter of a turn to lock them into the pucks. Same way there, and then just take your pin and clip and just install it in the hole, and it keeps it locked into position. Simple as that.Now, this is a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice durable carbide powder coat finish to it. Gross towing weight capacity on this hitch is 16,000. Now, you do always want to check the maximum towing capacity of your vehicle. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 4,000 pounds, and we mentioned the hitch height adjustment is anywheres from 13 to 17 inches.What I'm going to do now is with the jaws open I'm going to show you how the king pin would install into the jaws. Here's an example of what the kingpin would look on your fifth wheel. All you have to do is you see as it rotates back into the jaws once it gets far enough you can see the handle pops up into position. The jaws are locked around there.Last thing you have to do is just take your pin and clip, drop it right into the hole. Once you get that pin and clip into the hole . There you go. Just pop this clip onto the pin and it locks your handle in. You're all locked and ready to tow. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the Curt A16 fifth wheel trailer hitch for the Nissan Titan XD towing prep package, and it has a 16,000-pound weight capacity.

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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

Still very happy with this setup. Have pulled our camper from South Georgia to the panhandle twice and as far north as Michigan since my first review. It works great and feels very secure when connected.

Unit does what is supposed to. It handles our 36' Solitude with no problems. It clunks or chucks as some call it pretty good when getting on the brakes and accelerating hard which is an uncomfortable sound. The hitch indicator is nice. 529391

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

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

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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.

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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 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

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

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

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 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

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.

We're glad to hear you're happy with your purchase! A light coat of a quality car wax will help protect the finish from the elements.

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 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

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

I really like the hitch especially the position gage makes it a no brainer when hooking up. I do wonder if I should have got the slider to make backing up easier with the hitch point closer to the rear of the truck making it more like backing up a trailer? This year we will have a lot more backing up and I will see if I feel the same way about it. I use a chain fall to put it in and out with ease. 642275

We got this for our 2019 Chevrolet 3500HD. Received it a day earlier than we were told. It was easy to put together. The instructions were clear on what to do. We did have to adjust one of the bolts in order to get it to lock into place but other than that a very nice unit. We feel it was money well spent.

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

The curt a16 fifth wheel slider hitch is a great hitch. I just used it on its maiden voyage today. It is built very heavy duty and the ease of use is great.The slider mechanism is much easier to use than the normal square tube sliders and I like the double jaw hitch head. It gets 5 stars from me. 619766

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


Product is solid and secure. As noted in other reviews, it seems to clunk at times with the rubber bushings. I have had a few issues with the jaws closing securely. Sometimes it takes more than one attempt to successfully get the jaws to lock. I have a shortbed truck and this setup was said to be a must. My trailer's nose is scalloped (2013 Arctic Fox) and I have yet to need to slide the hitch to the rear, including tight turns etc. Now, what little space I had is wasted on this set up. 614753

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


Curt A16 with Slider base for Ford OEM Pucks I went through a good bit of anxiety after trading my 2013 F-250 for a 2018 F-250 due to the height of the 2018. I did not pay close enough attention to bedrail and rear height and I was beside myself sick over it so this review might be a bit long while I explain my journey. I replaced a 2013 F-250 4WD with a Reese Pro Series 16K square tube slider universal mount with a 2018 F-250 with OEM pucks. I pull a 2015 Prime Time Crusader 315RST. I measured, I had boards with levels, mock up on hitch height, I read every forum and article I could find and still I was worried I had made a big mistake. Finally, I called eTrailer and talked to Molly and she had, (or went and got) plenty of answers as I had narrowed it down to the B&W BWRVK3370 20K Companion Slider and the Curt A12. I decided to not go for the “the most expensive is better” and went with the Curt A12 saving me about $300. The 20K B&W was the smallest they had and with an F-250 I would never really come close to that weight before I passed the GCVW limit so it made no sense. The Slider base for the Curt says it is the same base used up to 24K so if I ever do I can just buy the new head I believe. Ordered on a Saturday it arrived on Thursday at noon. No issues with shipping at all, the hitch came in 2 boxes strapped to a pallet. No damage like others experienced. Assembly took me about an hour because it is heavy and awkward to line up the slider linkage but all in all nothing too difficult. I set the hitch head mount at the 2nd from the bottom (18 inch) hitch height because I had measured the truck and camper and was worried about having 6 inches of clearance camper to bed rail. Turns out on a 2018 F-250 4WD at the 18-inch level on the hitch I have 8 inches all around and 7 inches at the highest point on the tailgate. After I installed the hitch and put the camper on the truck and applied weight I got about 3-4 inches of squat, which made the already rear high truck sink to near level. I do have more nose high attitude on the trailer than I had before but it was not terrible. I moved the height adjustment down to the 17 inch (lowest) today to lessen the nose high attitude by another inch and I have 6+ inches clearance still. The hitch. Like I said before I had a Reese Pro Series 16K slider and it was noisy as hell. Kingpin clunk starting and stopping, creak at every bump and turn. I put the Curt A16 in and took the trailer for a drive with the rear slider window open and heard nothing. Absolutely nothing. No start/stop clunk, no creaking, nothing. Hook up was very easy and the interlaced kingpin jaws make visual check very easy. Operating the slide takes a bit more effort but it worked fine and locked securely. It did not latch back to maneuver and then back again to towing automatically like the video without jostling the handle a little but I am sure it will once broken in and I grease it a bit more. The puck system was easy to adjust and make a solid connection to the truck with no play. I could not be more pleased with the hitch. Cons- The hardware was packaged like one would expect and it was all there but the bolt for the center connection of the slider linkage was different than the handle and passenger side joints. It is too small and caused a lot of play. I used it anyway but it allows play in the handle and not firm for unlatching. I will replaced it today and now it works great. eTrailer is now my go to store for trailering supplies. 613767

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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

  • What Does Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Hitch C16520-16026 Weigh
  • The Curt A16 hitch part # C16520-16026 weighs 196 lbs. You should note that a fifth wheel hitch does not count as tongue weight since it is actually carried in the bed of the truck over the rear axle and not at the rear of the vehicle at the bumper where tongue weight is factored. If your truck has a tongue weight rating that does not refer to fifth wheel towing and instead refers to bumper pull trailer towing.

  • How to Select 5th Wheel Trailer Tire Capacity Based on Trailer GVWR
  • When it is time to select new tires for your 5th wheel camper trailer you will want to start with the trailer's gross vehicle weight rating, or GVWR, which is the very most the trailer can weigh. This weight figure should then be divided by the number of tires on the trailer, 4 for a tandem axle trailer, for example. So, if you had a tandem trailer rated for 8000-lbs GVWR each of the tires should be rated for no less than 2000-lbs. In the most popular trailer wheel/tire size, ST205/75-15...
