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 Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - HT31326-31314 Review

Today were going to review part number HT31326-31314. This is the Husky Silver Series fifth wheel hitch with the fixed legs. It has a 16,000 pound capacity. This fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It has the single piece wrap-around jaw right here. This will offer excellent security and stability by surrounding your trailers kingpin.

The increased jaw to kingpin contact not only creates a stronger connection than youd find with a slide bar jaw, but also helps reduce the rattle and jarring movement that you often experience when towing a fifth wheel trailer. I do want to show you the adjustability. Im just going to rotate this to the side so you can see on the cross member. This offers maximum adjustability, both up and down and front to back. You can adjust the hitch height up to three inches by moving the crossbeam up or down.

Basically if youll see there are four sets of holes right here. If you go to the very bottom set of holes, that would be the highest it would go which would be 17 inches above the truck bed. If you put it to the cross member at the top set of holes, which would be the lowest setting it would be 14 inches. You have a range of three inches there. You can actually install this hitch head.

It will give you two inches of play this way by using those four holes one, two, three, four on the upright that you can put the cross member. Right now Ive go them on the back set, or you can move them forward and gain tow inches. This does have a fully articulating head. As you can see it goes side to side and front to back. This will make for quick, simple hookup, even on unlevel ground.

The head will move in unison with the trailer during travel to minimize jarring. It has an easy to access lockable handle which will sit close to the truck cab far from the pin box. On the back here, Ill show you, it has the kingpin indicators which will let you know when youre safely hooked up. Im going to show you here on the handle theres a pin and clip that you can unlock to open the handle. Right here theres the tab that actually the holes are large enough you can use a padlock which is sold separately to get additional security. This hitch has a black powder coat finish. Most of the fasteners are a yellow zinc finish which will resist corrosion. The base rails and the installation kit are sold separately. This hitch will work with the industry standard above bed rails made by Curt, Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Pro Series, Reese and Valley. A few specs on this hitch, it has a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 pounds. It has a vertical load limit of 4,000 pounds. It comes with a five year warranty. I want to show you how the wrap-around jaw will work. Basically I remove the pin and clip so I can take the handle and well just pull it out. Theres a little notch there that will latch on, that means its fully open. As you can see the jaw is out of the way. Back here is the trigger plate I mentioned, that when the kingpin comes in, its at the very back here. When the kingpin hits that let me show you well move it into the still open, so now when youre going to load up the kingpin is going to come in, push the jaw, and then when it touches or hits this trigger plate in the very back you can see it would lock the jaw around the kingpin and you know youre securely attached in there. I do want to turn it to the very back to show you how the kingpin indicators have some safety features. You can see when you look out the rear window of your truck cab youll be able to see these features that will let you know your kingpins hooked up correctly. Again, just going to pull the let me pull this hitch out for you now were going to hook the hitch up and then what you can see is this red tab is visible. That means the jaw is open. There is also another popup indicator which will be flush with the hitch. That will still mean the jaw is open, ready for the kingpin to be installed. When the kingpin slides in and pushes the trigger plate you can see this tab will cover the red which will mean the jaw is secure, the kingpin is secure in the hitch, and youll see this popup right here will actually be raised above the hitch. It will be popped out. When youre in your truck cabin, you look into the back and see that indicator popped out and no red there, that means your kingpin is correctly installed into your hitch. One other thing is this is a fully articulating head. It rides on this large pivot bolt right here. As you can see this pivot bolts has a large castle nut on the end with a pin and clip. Basically as you get wear and tear on this movement of the hitch head you can actually tighten that nut down to firm it up some. You can also lubricate that pivot bolt on the other side here. Youll notice the other side of this pivot bolt, it has a grease Zurk fitting right down here. Right there is the grease Zurk fitting. You can actually put a grease gun on there and insert grease that will go on the inside and help lubricate and help ease the movement of this articulating hitch. That should do it for review on part number HT31326-31314.

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

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


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

We'll be in touch about the missing hardware Mark. We want to make sure you have the right pieces of hardware and they are of the correct grades.

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

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

Great response on shipping! Product was packaged better than most items I've ever received from most vendors. ( this was an issue in previous reviews and in my experience they've certainly remedied this issue) George was a great help and hastily responded to my concerns. (Not sure if that's their generic response name/guy/email but he provided results) I would've given 5 stars but the directions left a lot to be desired. I'm sure anyone who has installed a fifth wheel before would find the directions completely sufficient but it was my first and a couple more descriptive pictures would've been useful. After completion and a few unwanted holes in my bed the directions made perfect sense and the errors were clearly mine... But would it kill ya to provide a little better diagrams. All that said the hitch is sturdy and of good construction, I would repeat this purchase through this vendor in a heartbeat. Thanks etrailer!!! 360086

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


Heavy duty hitch, well built, no chucking when towing. Like the composition of the slider, no greasing. Slider and head handle work smoothly with no binding. Unit weight is about 240 lbs. have a plan to lift in and out of truck , I have a small Davit crane in the bed. My truck has a 8 foot box, I may need the slider due to having a 1 foot tool box then a 7000 watt Honda generator that fits up th the hitch, height of generator may interfere with front cap when turning . When shipped it was missing some parts, called e-tailor and thay shipped the missing parts, great sevice 257328


Comments

After a year hitch works great. No sloppy movement in jaws slide work fine. Heavy duty hitch. I should never have to get another hitch.

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

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

This Husky Fifth wheel hitch is very well built and performs well. We have it mounted in our 2016 Nissan Titan on the factory supplied goose neck adaptor. The quality of the paint finish and metal components are excellent. We have towed our 9000 GVW Fifth wheel about 10,000 km without any issues. My only comment is that it is very heavy--one person cannot easily lift it out of the truck even when broken down into the two components. 489155

Very frustrated so far. After FINALLY receiving the hitch and installing on my truck the jaw mechanism does NOT work properly, in other words I pulled on the lever to open the jaw, then to test the striker mechanism took a hammer handle & tapped on the striker (like in the instructional video) release at the rear of the jaw to make sure that the jaw would close automatically as it should when the king pin hits it.....nothing.....won't close as it should. Back on the phone with customer service. My previous 16k Husky was a good hitch but this one thus far .......? 188389

  • Comparing Jaw Types on Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • In regards to fifth-wheel hitches, there are a number of jaw types. A slide bar jaw is found on the less expensive hitches, such as the Pro Series # PS30129. This type of jaw is a secure one for your trailer but you will notice some king pin noise and some chucking as the fit is looser. This design will automatically close around the king pin once it is in place where the double- and single-jaw models will not. The double jaw design is more snug and secure than a slide bar jaw and you...

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Compatibility Husky Versus Reese
  • Husky and Reese fifth wheel hitches both use industry standard bed rails, so the Reese Hitch should be perfectly compatible with your existing Husky rails. I've provided a photo showing the slot spacing on Reese rails. You can compare that to the side to side and front to back dimensions between the hitch mounting tabs. To provide a bit of security, in the future you can use the # 6014 pins, the # RP58093 pull pin lock plates and some # 37DAT padlocks. Even one of the pull pin lock...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for FW Flagstaff # 85258IKWS Compatible with Reese Revolution Pin Bux
  • The Reese Revolution is the OEM version of their aftermarket Sidewinder. Lets begin with the Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch, part # C16130. Curt makes a great hitch, and I really like the spherical axial bearing they use to allow full 360 degree tilting movement. The double jaw used in the hitch grabs the fifth wheel king pin from all sides, reducing rattle and chucking. The built-in cushioning further reduces how the rattling, clatter and chucking is transferred to the vehicle. However,...

  • Compatibility of Husky Silver Series # HT31326-31314 Hitch with 5th Wheel with 14.5K GVWR
  • If the 5th wheel camper you're purchasing has a 14.5K GVWR, it means that the maximum allowable weight of the trailer cannot exceed 14,500 lbs. This is well below the 16,000 lb capacity of the Husky # HT31326-31314 Silver Series 5th Wheel hitch, so you can use it with no worries. There's really no 'rule of thumb', just be sure that the capacity of the hitch exceeds the GVWR of the 5th wheel. The # HT31412-686 is a custom install bracket kit that requires some drilling into the truck...

  • Can a Reese Revolution Pin Box be Used with a Husky 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Husky states that if you use their Husky Silver Series 16K W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # HT31326-31314 with a Reese Revolution or Sidewinder you will reduce the gross towing weight and vertical load limit of the hitch. They don't get specific on how much the capacity gets reduced by, but if you are well below the hitch's 16k capacity then you would be fine to use it normally (allowing the turret to turn) or locked out (like a standard fifth wheel hitch). The wedge you would need is...

  • Will a Husky 16k Hitch fit in the Rails that a Reese 15k Was Installed In
  • The rails in your 1989 Ford F250 that you just bought will be compatible with the Husky 16k hitch # HT31326-31314 that had in your 1982 Chevy Truck. The capacity for fifth wheel rails is to never exceed the capacity of the hitch that is installed in them. So the rails in the Ford will do just fine with your Husky hitch. Slider hitches aren't necessary on long bed trucks, slider hitches are much noisier than stationary hitches so unless one is needed you wouldn't want one.

  • Troubleshooting Husky 16k Single Jaw 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • I would start by making sure you are pulling out the handle of the Husky Silver Series 16K W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # HT31326-31314, far enough to completely disengage the king pin. See the photograph at right which shows how much of the jaw should be visible when the handle is completely disengaged. There are a few other things that could make the hitch difficult to unhook from your trailer. If the king pin is resting against the latch preventing it from sliding open you will...

  • Compatability of a Reese Revolution Pin Box with Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Hitch HT31318-31325

  • Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch and Wedge Recommendation for Use with Sidewinder/Reese Revolution
  • Sidewinders/Reese Revolution pin boxes do not reduce the weight of the setup at all. Their primary function is to move the pivot point of the hitch back 22 inches so that you don't have cab interference with the hitch around corners. This is mainly intended for short bed trucks since the cab clearance is reduced on these trucks. You will need to determine the weight of your trailer and then the towing capacities for your truck to determine if you would be okay to tow your trailer. The...

  • Can You Upgrade Fifth Wheel From Husky 16K to 26K With Only the Replacement Head Unit?
  • In order to upgrade from a Husky 16K fifth wheel such as # HT31326-31314 to a 26K version you would need to replace both the head unit and legs. The Husky 26K fixed fifth wheel is # HT31318-31325 while the sliding version is # HT31318-32042. Each of these hitches will mount on industry-standard above-bed base rails, which is also what the 16K version fits in. I've added a link to video reviews of both 26K hitches for you to take a look at.

  • 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.
