Super fast shipping and dropped right into my 5th rails. Didn’t even have to pull the 5th wheel hitch to install it. Took about 5 minutes. Heavy packaging ensued the hitch was in excellent shape.

  • Height of Curt Bent Plate Gooseneck Hitch Versus The Curt Spyder Goosneck Hitch
    The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16085 sits 7-1/2 inches above the rails at the highest point. The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails - 3" Offset # 16055 will sit lower with the top of the ball 5 inches from the top of the rails.

  • How To Confirm Fitment of the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch With Above Bed Rails
    The majority of above bed fifth wheel base rails use what is referred to as an industry standard pattern and this industry standard pattern works with most fifth wheel hitches and gooseneck plates. The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 16055 works with the industry standard above bed pattern so you will be good to go. There so long as your rails are spaced 22" apart center to center and you have the two inside slots which are spaced 10" apart left to right then the Curt Above-Bed...

  • Would the Curt Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapter part # 16055 Fit Husky Fifth Wheel Rails
    Do the fifth wheel rails in the bed of your truck have three sets of mounting slots? The Curt Adapter part # 16055 that you referenced is designed to mount to the inner most slots that measure 9-15/16 inches apart. I attached a picture that has the dimensions of the slots. This adapter is designed to fit the industry standard fifth wheel rails so most likely it would work well for you.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Base Rail Adapter for Ford F-150 with Short Bed
    You could use an offset gooseneck ball like the Curt # 16055 on your 2017 Ford F-150 but you'll want to make sure that the ball sits in front of the rear axle and not on top or behind it. It's likely that your rails are already set up so that you've got the center of your 5th wheel hitch head in the correct position in relation to the axle, so using a rail adapter with an offset isn't the best solution for a short bed truck. I recommend using the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch #...

  • Towing a Gooseneck Trailer with 2011 Ford F-250 with 5th Wheel Rails
    When you say the truck has fifth wheel rails installed do you mean it has aftermarket above-bed industry standard rails like in the picture I attached? Or is it a factory puck system like in the second picture? If you're not sure send me a picture so I can see what it looks like. If you have industry standard rails, like in the first picture, then you can use a fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter like part # 16055. This particular adapter gives you 3 inches of offset which helps with...

  • Purpose of Offset on Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails
    The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16055 has an offset of 3 inches in order for the coupler to be further from the cab of the truck which will allow more clearance for making turns. Its primarily for short bed trucks since there isn't as much room in the bed. Even though it isn't necessary, it can be used on a long bed truck without issues.

  • Installing 5th Wheel Hitch in 2002 Ford F250 So It Wont Interfere w/ Existing Gooseneck Hitch
    The mounting brackets that join your existing gooseneck hitch to the truck frame are sitting right where the fifth wheel install brackets would need to install, so unfortunately there's no getting around the fact that you wouldn't be able to install both hitches on your truck. There are existing adapters that would allow you to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch, but the majority of them are pretty rough of the frame of the fifth wheel. The few exceptions to that rule are...

  • To Center Rail Bolts have to be Installed to Reach Max Capacity for Curt Gooseneck Hitch Plate
    The rating of the Curt gooseneck hitch plate # 16055 doesn't change if the center bolts are not installed on the 5th wheel rails. However since the Curt gooseneck plate mounts to the inner-most set of slots on the rails the center bolts would help with stability, especially if and when the trailer coupler pulls up on the ball while traveling. Many 5th wheel rail kits use the center bolts already but if yours does not then I do recommend it. Another option is to use a gooseneck plate...

  • Install Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Hitch # 16055 on Base Rails w/ Only 2 Holes on Each Side of Center
    The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails, # 16055, is designed to fit Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, and Valley standard fifth wheel base rails which have the 3 holes on each side of the center. I have included a picture of industry standard rails for you. Since you mention that your rails only have two holes on each side of the center, it sounds like the rails in the bed of your Chevy aren't industry standard and may need to be replaced in order to mount...

  • What Supports Hitch Ball on Underside of Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 5th Wheel Rails

  • Curt Gooseneck Adapter for Fifth Wheel Rails on Short Bed Truck
    I spoke to my contact at Curt and he said that you could turn the gooseneck adapter # 16055 to have the hitch ball at the back. We usually recommend keeping the gooseneck ball forward. Keeping the gooseneck forward keeps the attachment point in front of the rear axle and the safety chain loops behind the hitch ball. You want your chain loops behind the hitch ball in order to best protect the cab of your truck in the even that your trailer comes unhitched.

  • Can the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Part # 16055 Install Both Ways
    Yes, the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails part # 16055 can be installed where the offset is closest to the cab or where the offset is closest to the tailgate. In order to reduce rattling, I strongly recommend using the Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners part # 16900 between the gooseneck hitch and base rails. You may also want to consider using the Curt Safety-Chain Loops for Gooseneck Hitches on 5th Wheel Rails part # C16000 as some states require that safety...

  • How Much Height will the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Part # 16055 Provide
    If you measure the length of the coupler on your trailer (see photo), you can then compare that to the height of the bedsides of your tow vehicle as this is going to tell you whether or not you are going to run into any clearance issues. The recommended amount of clearance between the bedsides and trailer is about 5-6". With that being said, the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 16055 sits about 2-1/2" above the bed floor when measuring from the base of the ball so this is going...

  • Can Curt Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter # 16055 Be Used on Long Bed Truck
    The 3 inch offset of the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16055 that you referenced is designed to either move the weight of the trailer either slightly before or after the axle of the truck. In most cases this is used to give additional clearance to allow the truck cab to not end up hitting the overhang of the trailer around corners. But this isn't typically needed for an 8 foot long truck bed. So you can either run it forward or reverse and it would be fine.

  • Does Curt Fifth Wheel Rail to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter 16055 Fit Same Rails a Pro Series Hitch Fits
    Yes, the Curt gooseneck hitch adapter part # 16055 will fit perfectly into the rails you have in the bed of your truck that currently has a Pro Series 16k fifth wheel hitch. The rails your hitch and this adapter are designed to fit are the exact same size/dimension. I attached a picture of the adapter installed in a set of rails like you have now as well plus a link to a review video.

    First you will need to install fifth wheel rails in the bed of your 1998 GMC Pickup. I recommend the Reese Universal Base Rails And Installation Kit, part # RP30035. This is a 10-bolt kit and includes the rails, brackets, and hardware. The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails, part # 16055 can be used with the # RP30035 rail kit on your truck. This adapter has a 3-inch offset and a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball.
