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 - Sliding 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.

Hitch came at expected time. UPS guy says, oh my that's heavy, I helped. Got it installed easy enough but then I thought, wow, the new truck is taller, the new hitch is taller, how is this going to work out? Well it did. I raised the trailer pin box to max, 2". The RV rides a little higher than before, but acceptable. Good transaction. Thank you. 713738

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

Review from a similar Curt A16 in Fifth Wheel


Customer service for product selection and order entry were excellent and focused on my interests and needs. The hitch, custom installation kit, and harness were shipped very quickly and arrived sooner than expected. Everything arrived in excellent condition. Assembly and installation instructions were very clear and specific, and I was able to assemble and install everything with no problems and in a very reasonable amount of time. Total cost was roughly half of what it would have been if I had purchased the products and had them installed by a dealer. I am very satisfied with my experience dealing with etrailer.com, and would highly recommend them to anyone shopping for towing products. 294100

I like the dual jaws. They hold the king pin tighter than the slide bar style. I also like the color coded hook indicator on the front, although a complete visual inspection should be done each time you hook. The only shortcomings I can see are the height, it's a little short even on the highest adjustment, and the quality of the Chinese fasteners leave a little to be desired. Other than that, it pulls securely and quietly. It couples and uncouples very smoothly. Overall it is a nice heavy duty piece. 137021


Comments

The first one I bought had some internal problems and became very loose around the kingpin when towing. I talked to an Etrailer rep and he put me in touch with the Curt manufacturer directly who sent me a new hitch and had me send the old one back at no expense to me. I was very pleased with Etrailers and Curts customer service. They listened, understood, and solved the problem very quickly once it was identified. Thank you, and I WILL look to you for my further trailer needs.

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.

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


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

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

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

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


Comments

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Install was easy. We’ve towed our 36’ fifth wheel-camper about 3000 miles now with no problems or issues. I like the indicator that shows you’ve made a good connection when hooking up to the camper. 473493

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

This has been so much better than the previous hitch I owned. Hitching is so much easier with the color codes and unhitching is a snap. No hangups whatsoever. This is a good hitch! 724548

The hitch installed just as the video from Curt demonstrated. I suggest watching it before getting started as will make the process easier. I have not used it yet but I’m very pleased with the fit and quality of the build. I will adjust my review as needed once I have towed with it. 699718

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

smooth operation , great hitch have not used the slider. may never need the slider option there does seem to be to much play on the slider , that makes the hitch bounce when you take off and slow down 692618

Easy to assemble and install. Much easier coupling and decoupling than my last hitch. Also, I really like the wrap around ‘jaws’ on this hitch. I was always worried that the pin would slip through the jaws on my last hitch. Much better engineering than my last hitch. 680610

Could not be happier. ...shipping arriving on time as scheduled, with other options available to your needs. Shipping boxes little tore up but exspected as it is heavy, but product boxes undamaged along with the items.. Assembly easy with directions included, and a video to help if needed. ..or staff to call to get you through. Had existing rails to mount into, with the side mounting right in...head assembly fit into the slide without any issues. You will have to make your height adjustments depending on your needs for your application as I did.. First pull I made from last hitch was a 100% noticeable difference. Hook up and disconect with ease without any issues. I will HIGHLY recommend etrailer for any needs to anyone they may have or products needing. Thanks etrailer. ..you will be hearing from me down the road if needed for any of my RV needs 677004

Great product. Easy to assemble and fits perfectly in standard bed rails on 22” center. I have coupled up with it but have not towed with it yet. Have a short trip of about 400 miles coming up in about 2 weeks. So far I am very happy with the way it couples and slides. Unlike my old square tube slider this one is very smooth and the price was right . Ordered late afternoon on Thursday and it delivered on Monday. Great shipping time. I like everything about it especially the fact that when you uncouple it is automatically set to recouple. 662531

Received the hitch,very well packaged,easy assembly instructions. Placed in my pickup, adjusted the head unit to my 5th wheel and finished assembly. I used 2*6'sto help hold the head unit so I didn't have to hold it in position for assembly We are anxious to try it out and see how well it works 661952
