Each Husky Silver Series fifth-wheel trailer hitch has been thoroughly tested to meet SAE J2638 standards. These criteria - set forth by the Society of Automotive Engineers - are specifically designed to ensure the highest level of performance for fifth-wheel towing.


Single-Piece, Wraparound Jaw

Wraparound Jaw on Husky 16K W Fifth Wheel Hitch

The wraparound, single-piece jaw on this heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch offers excellent security and stability by surrounding your trailer's king pin. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact not only creates a stronger connection than you would find with a slide-bar jaw, but it also helps to reduce the rattle and jarring movement that is often experienced when towing a fifth-wheel trailer.


Maximum Adjustability

Adjustable Height of Husky 16K W Fifth Wheel Hitch

The Silver Series 16K W fifth-wheel trailer hitch offers maximum adjustability both up and down and front to back. Adjust the hitch height by simply moving the crossbeam up or down and bolting it into position. To ensure perfect placement of the hitch over your truck's rear axle, you can move the head and crossbeam along the uprights, front to rear. Proper placement of the hitch head will give you more cab clearance and a more stable ride.


King Pin Safety Features

The jaw of the Husky Silver Series 16K W fifth-wheel trailer hitch will only close when your trailer's king pin is positioned correctly inside the hitch. A trigger plate sits just beneath the jaw. When this plate is pressed by the king pin, the jaw will fully close. Because the king pin must press the trigger plate on the underside of the jaw for the jaw to close, high pinning cannot occur.


King pin safety indicator on Husky Silver Series fifth-wheel trailer hitch

A color-coded king pin indicator is built into the handle so that you can easily determine if the jaw is open or closed. Any time that you can see the red tab at the rear of the hitch, the jaw is open. When no red can be seen, you can rest assured that you are properly hitched. Further secure your trailer to your hitch by inserting a padlock (sold separately) through the lockable tab on the handle.

Video Transcript for Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Today, we'll be having a look at the Husky Silver Series 16KW 5th wheel trailer hitch, part number HT31326-31314. Here we are in the bed of our truck, and here's what it looks like in the bed of our truck, coupled up to our trailer. Now, what separates this 5th wheel from other 5th wheels on the market is our fully articulating head right here, which will provide the correct angle to connect to our kingpin, regardless of the terrain that we are on. If we find ourselves on uneven terrain, this will provide a quick and easy hook-up every time. One key feature that this 5th wheel has, that others don't, is that we have a two pin adjustment point, fore and aft, so we can center our kingpin directly over the center line of our rear axle, providing us the best weight distribution that we possibly can get. We also have a vertical height adjustment here to help adjust it. So, when we are towing our 5th wheel, we can ensure that it's level. Uncoupling from our 5th wheel is super easy. We are gonna just take out our safety latch here.

You can also put a padlock there, if you want to. Take our handle. Pull it out and back to lock the jaws in the open position. Now that we are disconnected from our 5th wheel, I went ahead and closed our jaws on up, so we can go over some features. One key point that we have, is that we have an anti-walk, wrap-around jaw, which makes full 360 degree contact with our kingpin. Our 5th wheel head is equipped with an indicator to show us when our coupler is fully wrapped around our kingpin, giving us a secure connection.

When it's sitting flush, we know that it's open, or partially open. When it's exposed, sticking out of our head, we know that it's fully closed, and we have a secure connection. This 5th wheel has a 16,000 pound max gross trailer weight capacity and a vertical load limit of 4,000 pounds. You want to consult with the owner's manual of your truck, and not exceed what it's rated for, when you are towing your 5th wheel. This 5th wheel meets or exceeds all SAE 5th wheel test standards. Now, just as easy it was to uncouple, it's just as easy to couple on up to your trailer. Grab our handle.

Make sure it's fully open. All right, with our truck backed up onto the trailer, we want to make sure our indicator is sticking out, which means we are fully coupled, and then we will clip our handle in place, so it can't be pulled on out. And now we'll take our 5th wheel out onto our test course. As we go over uneven terrain, you can see how the fully articulating head moves in unison with the trailer, to help minimize jarring, and as we are going around corners, and making tight maneuvers, you see how making these tight turns is not an issue. We have plenty of clearance, and it still keeps a nice, firm grasp onto our trailer, allowing us to make these tight turns. That completes our look at the Husky Silver Series 16KW 5th wheel trailer hitch, part number HT31236-31314.

Quiet and capable hitch. Two issues. 1- Husky issued a recall to have Loctite applied to three bolts in the head, free repair if a dealer is near you. 30 minute DIY if you have loctite red and a torque wrench on hand and no accomodating dealer. 2- I have had to tighten the castle nut on the center pin a few times over 800 miles, head will develop a clunk in the yoke moving fore and aft. Husky indicated this is not a concern and there is no upper torque limit on the nut, so just adjust tighter as needed to compress the yoke to the head and eliminate this movement. All said, far more comfortable drive than the Husky 16 KS it replaced. 576427

Thanks George for the note.My last hitch was the Husky slider,I had a ford short bed.I had it for 9 years and it worked great.I went to this husky hitch because I up graded my Ford to a 1 ton long box.The hitch works good,but I have one question maybe you can answer My last hitch did not have very much side to side movement The new one has a lot of movement.I know this is to let you back the truck in when you are on a bit of a grade.The problem is when you are not hauling the trailer and you go over a bump or around a corner the hitch will flop to the opposite side making a bang when it hits the base.I had to put pieces of leather to cut down the noise when it hits.It there anything I can tighten so it dose not flop from side to side so easily. Thanks Jim Bell 551750

Works fine, how often should I grease the pin that hold s the head to the main housing.It has a bolt with a grease nipple going through to back of housing with a large nut and locking pin to stop nut from coming off Thanks

According to the instructions, that I have attached for your reference, the grease zerk fitting that you are describing is to be checked periodically. The other moving parts are recommended to be checked every to 3 to 6 months. It would depend on how often you are using you hitch and it is left at your best judgement how often periodically applied to your situation. I would recommend at a minimum every 3-6 months if not more frequently. We do have a help article that provides a maintenance schedule for other trailer components that you might find useful.

This Husky hitch was an excellent choice for me, I've owned a previous Husky hitch and the quality of this product is excellent. What I really like is that this hitch articulates from side to side easing the stresses on the fifth wheel and make for a smoother ride over my fixed hitch. another bonus that I like is that it is powder coated for a much heavier duty finish over a regular paint job. I highly recommend this hitch plus the price is very reasonable. (Beware of articulation crushed both sides of rear quarter panels.) 248690

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


I ordered a Husky silver series 5th wheel hitch with rails, and custom brackets, only to find out that the hitch was missing, a leg, crossmember, handle, and all hardware. Furthermore I paid extra money to have items shipped quickly, so I could pick up my new purchase. I am told, that even due to the fact there was a mistake made on your end, your company cannot overnight ship the rest of my items due to cost. I feel that is a poor excuse for a large company as yourself. I had already made phone contact to ensure all items were available prior to my order. I have been in contact with Carla, who has been nothing but nice and very helpful. I would appreciate it if you could please overnight my items that I should have receive monday the 4th, so I do not loose the trailer that me and my family are so happy to purchase due to not having my items in time. Thank you for your time. Kevin N 190815

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


product was just as I expected. E- trailer did a great job start to finish. UPS was, as expected, rough on the boxes. This caused a loss of a few pieces of hardware. ( I was able to replace the missing hardware at home depot) This was not a big deal just faster to go grab what I needed instead of contacting E-trailer. I would recommend E- Trailer to anyone and will use them myself as needed. 159546

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


Easy installation, easy to understand instructions and a simple locking system make this a good choice. I had the Husky 16kw, but replaced it with the 16ks. the Ks fit in my rails so the installation into my pick-up was a snap. I bought the Ks on sale for less that $300, a good deal in my opinion. I will see how it tows this weekend. 523774


Comments
Not as well as I had hoped. After the third tow, I could not dis-engage the slider bar and had to slowly force it open with a 3 pound sledge. Afterwards, I took the head piece off and looked at the mechanism the slide bar was a part of. Seeing no obvious damage, I lubricated all the parts and reinstalled the head gear. It worked great the first time, but I experienced the same problem after the second tow. I just went ahead and bought a new hitch, a 26k Husky etrailer because I bought a heaver 5th wheel. No problems so far with the new hitch. I bought the fully articulating hitch this go around, as I had never had a problem with the first hitch I bought from Husky etrailer which was the same, but only a 16K.

I chose the Husky because of the listed height of the hitch. Unfortunately it sits about 1.5" higher than advertised. I was however able to use it and it performed very well. As long as I have someone helping me to get it in and out of my truck (because its very heavy) I would have to say I'm not too disappointed. Also, the custom rail kit was a perfect fit. I'm very happy I went with that particular kit. 738394

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


We received our hitch on Thursday, exactly when E-trailer said it would come, completed installing it in three hours. The rails had been installed from a previous hitch. The instructions where pretty good until the last step, they stopped before installing the receiver plate, but by that time I was able to figure out what needed to be done. We have traveled over 1500 miles in the first week and so far have not had any problems. One thing that I have noticed, turning is much smoother with the pivoting plate then from our previous hitch which it did not have. Also, the trailer jumped a curve while making a tight turn and was not felt in the cab of the truck. 667167

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


We purchased this 26k Husky hitch for two reasons. First, we just went from a short bed truck to a 8ft bed and no longer needed our auto slider. Second, we are going to trade our 40ft fifth wheel toy hauler for a 43ft toy hauler and the 18k auto slider was not rated high enough. The Husky hitch was delivered on time and the packaging was excellent. No damage or lost parts from shipping. This Husky hitch is very heavy duty, extremely well designed and nice looking. The quality of workmanship is excellent. We are very happy with our choice. Dealing with etrailer.com was a pleasant experience. They were extremely easy to work with keeping us updated on the shipping process and the delivery date. We received it 4 days after we ordered it. I feel confident if any problems should develop, Husky and or etrailer.com will take care of it pronto. Happy campers! 613760

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


Received product on time. As stated by other customers, box was pretty damaged with a hole on one corner. Lots of tape was used by someone and parts were loose in the box but got all parts and more. Received lots of hardware, made me wonder if I should use all of them. The instructions were not very helpful. Good thing I was replacing another Husky hitch, so having it side by side was great. Reviews from another customer mentioned the side to side swaying of the head and that it can damage the truck rails. The silver Husky does have more movement than my old hitch which should help hooking and unhooking. I set the height same as my old hitch which is the second hole from the top but am wondering if I should go the max. Also, the lever for the slide is a problem. it is too small and cannot get any leverage on it to disengage the slide. even though I also receive a second handle, it is too long and interferes with the top jaw handle. I have not pulled my 5th wheel yet, but am second guessing my self that maybe I should have stayed with my old hitch. we'll see. Maybe this will help someone. I drive a 2010 F-250 HD with a camper shell most of the time. I use a cherry picker/shop crane to remove the camper and install the hitch and vice versa. it is a one man operation for now since am 73 years old. 499361

Ask the Experts about this Husky Fifth Wheel

  • Husky 5th Wheel Hitch Castle Nut and 2010-2017 Recall Issue
    The castle nut on the pin is not part of the Husky recall. The recall was not using Loctite on bolts in the handle and the jaw so bolts became loose over time in 2010-2017 models of the 16K and 26K hitch head. The manufacturer offers a repair kit for the 16K and 26K hitch heads to remedy the issue. This may be part of the issue with the fore and aft movement in the head, so I recommend looking into the recall. The castle nut you are referring to is on the pivot pin and the pin should...

  • How to Connect a 5th Wheel Trailer to Tow Vehicle with King Pin Sitting 1-1/2 Too Low
    From what you said it sounds like you are having trouble coupling your 5th wheel trailer to the 5th wheel hitch in your tow vehicle. I do have a few things that you can try before swapping out your whole 5th wheel hitch and they require your tow vehicle and trailer to be on flat ground. To start off you should be able to simply extend your landing gear an extra 1-1/2" (unless it is already completely extended) since it sounds like you are just needing an extra 1-1/2" of height for your...

  • Can Husky Silver Series 16K 5th Wheel Hitch # HT31326-31314 Fit Ford 5th Wheel Hitch Prep Package
    The Husky Silver Series 16K 5th Wheel Hitch # HT31326-31314 will not directly fit into the factory puck system in a 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty but it can be installed using the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156. This adapter drops in to the factory pucks and provides the equivalent of industry-standard base rails that will accept the Husky hitch. The adapter has a 20K capacity so it will allow you to get the most from the 16K-rated Husky hitch. I linked videos on both...

  • What are the Dimensions of the Center Pin on the Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    I believe you are talking about the large center pin where the head pivots. I have included a picture showing the measurements I took. The overall length is approximately 7-3/4 inches. And the diameter is approximately 1-1/2 inches.

  • Is Movement on Husky 5th Wheel Hitch Head Normal
    I believe you have a Husky 5th wheel hitch like part # HT31326-31314. This actually has a fully-articulating head which helps to minimize jarring during travel and offers a quick, simple hookup, even on unlevel ground. Attached is the review video for this 5th wheel hitch that you can check out. If this is the type of movement that you are seeing then what you are experiencing is normal. If it is moving more than that then let me know and I can help you look into it further.

  • Is the Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with Reese Industry Standard Rails
    Yes, the Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # HT31326-31314 that you referenced is compatible with the Reese Custom Base Rail and Install Kit # RP50064-58. The # HT31326-31314 that you referenced is designed to fit in industry standard fifth wheel rails and the rails of the # RP50064-58 have industry standard rail dimensions so they are compatible. I attached review videos for both of these products.

  • Husky Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500
    The prices for both of the rails kits that you referenced are available at the links, # HT31413 and # HT31565. We do not recommend mixing bracket and rail manufacturers, you would also need the Husky Universal Base Rails # HT30686. If you have a decent mechanical skillset and have basic tools you should have no problem installing either rail kit. I would strongly recommend you go with the custom install kit as it will be much easier than the universal.

    The only option I can offer you to use the Husky Silver Series 16K W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # HT31326-31314 on your 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 is with the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package part # DM6206.

  • Vertical Load Limit Reduced on Husky Silver Series 16K W 5th Wheel Hitch With Sidewinder
    When using a Sidewinder, the only weight capacity that is reduced on the Husky Silver Series 16K W 5th Wheel Hitch, # HT31326-31314, is the vertical load limit (or pin weight). The vertical load limit is reduced to 3,200 lbs. This hitch will retain the full 16,000 lbs towing capacity.

  • Can Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch be Installed With Pins Instead of Bolts?
    No, you cannot replace the bolts that attach your Husky fifth wheel such as # HT31326-31314 with pins. Doing so could result in the hitch head being torn off which would obviously be very bad.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Slider For 2016 Ram 2500 With Factory Tow Prep Package
    I did some research and in the installation instructions for the Husky EZ Roller it states the hitch cannot be used on trucks with a bed that is less than 6-1/2 ft long. It is due to the clearance when executing turns safely. For your 2016 Ram I recommend The Reese 5th Wheel Hitch, part # RP30051. This 16,000-lb slider features a dual jaw latching system and also features 10 inches of travel front to back. You will also need the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel...

  • Recommended Frame Rail Kit for Husky 5th Wheel Hitch on 1998 Dodge Diesel 2500 8 Foot Bed
    For your 1998 Dodge Ram, I recommend the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP30035. These Reese rails will work with your Husky 16K fifth wheel hitch and have received better reviews than the Husky rails. This rail and mount kit will require drilling into the frame as well as the bed of your truck. I've attached a review video and an install video for you.

  • Can 2015 Ram 2500 with Ram Box Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The problem with the Ram Box is that is that it puts the rails of the bed too close together and it causes interference with the pin box of the trailer around corners. We have heard several customers say that with a Sidewinder pin box they were able to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck with a Ram Box. Sidewinders move the pivot point higher so the Ram Box wouldn't interfere. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders...

  • Can 5th Wheel Hitch Parts from Different Brands Be Combined Safely
    The 5th wheel hitch head and slider parts you have are from different makers and so they cannot be safely combined. But we do offer replacement hitch bases that let you to convert your fixed Reese hitch to a sliding 5th wheel that will work with your 6-1/2-foot short bed F-150. Please let me know if you have a 5-1/2-foot bed since the slider will NOT provide enough turning clearance for this bed length. We have a different solution in that case, a Sidewinder pin box, described in the linked...

  • Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F250 Shorbed Diesel
    All of the parts you are considering are compatible with each other and would work great on your 2013 Ford F250 Diesel with a short bed. The Sidewinder like you referenced is compatible with the Husky Hitch part # HT31326-31314. You are correct, since you have a Sidewinder you won't need a slider hitch. The rail kit part # HT31408-686 is also the correct rail kit for your truck since it has been confirmed to fit your year/make/model plus it is compatible with the diesel engine trucks.
