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).


R16 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.


Non-Binding Design

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 C16668 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, with the R16 Slider for the Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package. It has a 16,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2,500 and 3,500 trucks, with the 6-1/2' bed and the factory rail kit. On a custom-fit product I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application.Now, this 5th wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed, so that you can tow your 5th wheel trailer. This one's mounted on this non-binding slider, which will provide a clearance required for your sharp bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds.

The slider travel will give you 12" front to back.Now, that extra clearance will prevent your trailer from hitting the cab of your truck during sharp, slow speed turns. It'll slide smoothly on these rounded, non-binding rods. This is designed for use on trucks with beds shorter than 8', but not recommended for use on truck beds shorter than 6'.Does use this two jaw interlocking system, right up here. Provides a nice 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact. Because of that, it'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models.

Does offer two lube points, right in the front here. Makes it easy to access grease Zerk fittings, one right over here, one right over here, one on each jaw. It allows you to put your grease gun right on there and lubricate the jaws.The head on this is a fully articulating torsion head. Gives you controlled coupling and a nice stable, quiet ride. It will self-align for easy hookup, suppresses any road shock, and it will reduce bothersome towing noise.Now this does offer a fast one-pin head removal, to make it easy for one person remove the hitch from the vehicle.

Right here, this clip, if you move this clip and slide out this large pivot pin from the back here, slide that out, you can take the head out of the crossmember and then take your crossmember right out of the slider. Makes it easy for one person to break it down.Now this does offer a 4" hitch height adjustment. Now hitch height is critical, 'cause when you go to two your 5th wheel, you want it to be as level as possible with your tow vehicle. So, when you go to mount this crossmember to the slider, there is different rows of holes that'll give a 4" hitch height adjustment. Now hitch height is always measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head, so it'll let you adjust it from 18-3/4, all the way up to 22-3/4.Other nice feature on this, they offer a 3 point color-coded indicator system, right back here, under the hitch head.

What's nice about that, it'll tell you if your hitch is ready to couple, uncouple or tow, by using your color-coded system. What's nice is you can see those colors from the cab. So, if you're sitting in the cab right here, you can turn around and look. Whatever color is showing there, it'll tell you what position the jaws are in.Right now, it's showing a green circle. Green means it's ready to go. You're ready to tow. You're all set. Now, if we'd open that and the jaws pop open, it would show a yellow triangle, which means you're ready to couple. By chance, if it shows the red octagon, like a stop sign, that means you're uncoupled. You're not ready to couple up yet. Right now, as I mentioned, it's showing a green circle, so it shows the jaws are closed. You're ready to go.The handle itself is a lockable handle. Let's you easily secure the trailer to hitch. Comes with this pin and clip that's tethered to this lanyard, so you don't lose it. The hole is large enough, you could put a padlock through there if you want extra security. The padlocks, we do sell separately on our website. The handle is a nice short throw single handle operation. I'm going to show you in a few minutes how that works, give a demonstration on all of its features. Then put the pin and clip back in.Now it does come with this plastic lube plate. This plastic lube plate will go on to your kingpin, so when you go to hook up, it helps the kingpin glide smoothly into the hitch, during hookup, and it puts a little of the plastic here between, so you don't have metal to metal contact. In other words, your 5th wheel will sit on this lube plate.Now to install this into your vehicle, it's very fast, easy installation. Basically, it'll just drop into the four receiver pucks that are built into your factory under bed rails. All you have to do is, right here you got a clip. Just remove the clip, rotate this handle 90 degrees, and it'll rotate the tab. You'll do that on each corner. Once they're all four opened, you just drop it into those four pucks that are in the factory under bed rails. Once it drops it, rotate the handles back. Again, you'll do it on each corner. That'll twist that tab and lock it into place. Then just put the clip back through there, to hold the handle into place. So it's very simple installation and easy to remove also.This hitch is a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice, durable carbide power coat finish to it. Few specs on it again, the application is for the 2016 and newer Chevy GMC trucks, with the factory installing towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 16,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 4,000 pounds. And we mentioned the slider travels is going to give you 12" front to back.So what we're going to do now is, I'm going to demonstrate the jaws, how they operate and the slider, how it'll operate. I have here an example of kingpin, what it would look like on your 5th wheel. When we go to hook up, just again, take the pin and clip, unhook it, pull it out and then you'll see this handle we talked about, very sharp throw, pop it back, jaws pop open, you're ready to hook up. As we mentioned, if you look back here at the color coated system, it's showing a yellow triangle. So it means you're ready to couple. When you go to couple up, your kingpin will slide back into the jaws. You can see, once they get back far enough, it'll automatically, both jaws will interlock and go around it completely. You notice the handle goes back into the closed position. The holes line up. You can take your pin and clip, drop it right through there. Clip it. You're all ready to go, ready to tow.Now, if you want to move the slider, like right now it's in the towing position, which means the kingpin is close to the cab as could be. So you get into your camp ground and you need to make some sharp turns, you want to get that extra 12" of clearance, so your 5th wheel doesn't hit your truck, what you'll do is take this slider handle, pull it out. Then just twist it away from where you're going to go. In other words, it says towing position here, maneuvering position here. So we pull it out and we twist it that way. Then when you move, it will automatically slide. You can see, once it gets to the maneuvering position, the 12" you've gained, it will automatically lock it into place, and you're ready to make your tight turns.Then, when you're done camping, you want to get back on the road, you want to move this into the towing position. Again, just pull this handle out, twist it the opposite way of which way it's going. You'll notice as it moves, it'll slide back to the towing position and lock right into place. Simple as that.That should do it for the review on the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, on this R16 slider, for the Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package, with a 16,000 pound weight capacity.

The 5th wheel hitch was very well made, all fabrication welds are professional. Assembly of the hitch is simple, I installed all the fasteners, placed mounting assembly onto GMC factory installed rails, then tightened all self-locking nuts/bolts. Installed the R16 roller assembly and attached A16 hitch using supplied flat head machine screws. Prior to installing screws, I applied loctite thread locker to threads. All machine screws were torqued. I will be sending photos of the installation, soon. Great hitch. Regards, Earl Underwood 449810

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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

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 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

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

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 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

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

After a year I am still loving this hitch. I have had zero problems or issues with it. Hitching up and unhitching is so easy.

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

A year later and hitch is still great. Easy to hitch and unhitch. Much smoother ride and no bouncing within the hitch. Glad I bought it.

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

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

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

"BEWARE"I read many reviews on this hitch, all but one were very good. The one negative review stated that his problem with a noisy hitch was quickly resolved with a replacement. My experience has not been good, I too had a noisy hitch, contacted Etrailer and they sent a replacement. Second hitch was just as noisy. Contacted Curt directly and am told this slop in hitch is by design! Their fix is to disconnect the factory brake controls and install theirs. Why was I not informed before purchase that this hitch bangs around unless you purchase an aftermarket control. It is very unnerving to know that your king pin is extremely loose within the hitch, banging back and forth on acceleration and stopping. 477715

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


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

Delivery was fast less than a week,product work for application. Install was straight forward took 45 min or so once I figured out what the direction we're trying to explain. Have a 20015 2500 Ram with factory pucks fit was real easy. Think the direction could have been clearer with better illistration. Have 2014 Cougars high Mt. 33ft needed to set the hitch at lowest level on mount but think it will work just fine. Bought c16520_c16021 Wish I would have gotten this first I was told that I could use my old fifth wheel with pitchers frame adaptor but when I install it it made the hitch sit to high for the trailer and would not work with my old fifth wheel hitch. 227626

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


Haven't used the hitch yet, but after assembly and installation, it appears solid and well made. The custom leg assembly (for Ford factory hitch prep) and the hitch proper come with separate instructions, which causes some confusion. The legs are attached to the hitch using four 19mm bolts with nuts (provided). The instructions call for lock washers and flat washers for all four bolts (shown in parts list) which were NOT provided in the pack-up. A trip to the hardware store to get the critical missing parts was required. Bottom line for manufacturer: Include all the specified hardware with the product! 494690

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

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

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

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

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

Fast shipping, solid product... took myself and a buddy 2 hours to install the custom kit and hitch on my 15 Silverado, only problem I've notice with the hitch is when it has a load on it the handle on the slider won't lock into position when changing.... don't know if it's from the cold or what but with no load it works well.... and be sure to check your height on the hitch so when you go to maneuver your trailer it won't hit your tailgate.... the hitch height adjusts... 177193

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

I have really been enjoying the Curt 5th wheel hitch. Easy to install and remove. Great quality and instructions that are easy to understand. I looked at hitches that cost a lot more but didnt offer anymore than the Curt.I put off buying a 5th wheel hitch for about 2 years because the one that fit my truck from RAM was about three times to cost!I also found out that the hitch is made about 30 miles from my home

Called because a bolt holding the roller wheel broke. After the lady helping me figured out that that bolt wasn't sold separately since it was part of the roller I was figuring over $300 for a new roller assembly but she said they had one that had been used as a demo and it was only $200 with free shipping so I got it in two days. It took a good deal of time/effort as she tried to see if they bolt was somehow sold separately which was well appreciated. 485478

The product is great! Seems solid and extremely functional. It's perfect for my short bed Ram 3500. My only concern was with the shipping of my order. As expected the packaging was literally shredded inside the boxes where the hitch parts were tumbling around. Thankfully no real damage occurred to any of parts in all three boxes.

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

I am giving this Curt hitch 5 stars. The bed rail kit was easy to install on my 2005 GMC 2500HD. Watching the video certainly was a huge help. The hitch is solid and of good quality. I installed it in a couple evenings after work. We went and picked up our new camper that Saturday. The hitched pulled nicely, no clunking or banging was heard. And that was pulling the camper 6 hours home. Highly recommend this hitch! 494811
