Video Transcript for Curt Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Review

Jake: Hey guys, it's Jake here with etrailer today. We're going to be taking a look at two different Curt products, but they're going to accomplish the same thing. We're going to be looking at the curd spider and the Curt drop-in plate. Both of them are going to be a gooseneck conversion for your fifth wheel rails that are already in your bed.Now what I like about this is let's say you have a fifth wheel camper that you go camping with for the past couple of years. And you decide that you want to either haul a gooseneck trailer because you got a side project coming up or something like that, but you don't want to take out your bed because you still like going camping. This is designed to help you haul goosenecks in the proper way, by just utilizing the rails that are already in your bed.The first difference is going to be that our safety chain loops on our spider are going to be on the front and they're going to be spring-loaded, just like our standard ones are on your regular goosenecks.

Can be spring-loaded, pull it out, hook your safety chain on there, and you're ready to go. The ball is another area of concern. So the gooseneck ball on our spider is going to sit directly in the center of our two rails. It's also going to sit from the bottom of the spider to the top of the ball, is going to be about seven and a half inches. Let's go ahead and take a look at the Curt plate for gooseneck adapter and show you the difference.

With our Curt plate. You can see that our safety chain loops are incorporated in the plate itself. You just simply hook your safety chain hooks onto these loops, and it's going to be safe to travel down the road.You're going to notice that our ball is going to be slightly offset either to the front or the rear. We can flip this plate around depending on what kind of vehicle that we're towing it with. If we have a long bed, it's not really going to matter which configuration you use it for.

You are going to be able to use it with the ball facing the cab, or more towards the cab. And if you have a short bed truck, which you can do, is you can take the whole plate and have these handy little grip slots that you can put your hands so you don't smash it in between the bed and the sides of our plate. Simply lift it up, spin it around, set it down, and you can see very easily. We just gained about six inches back and neither of our balls are going to be in the center of our two rails.So this is going to give us that extra cab clearance that we need for the nose of our trailer, if you're hauling it in a short bed. The biggest difference between the two gooseneck adapters I'll have to say is going to be the height of your ball.

The height of our ball on our gooseneck plate here is going to be only from the top of your rails to the top of the ball is only going to be about four and a half inches. So you can tell the difference between the sheer size of our spider and our plate is that you're going to gain about three inches if you're using the spider. Whereas if you don't want to have to adjust your coupler on your trailer, or if you can't adjust it enough, we've gotten a lot of reviews that say that they cannot put their coupler any further up inside their gooseneck hitch.So they're going to have to go with the plate because the spider was simply too tall. They couldn't adjust their trailer to the right height to haul it level. Both the hitch adapters are going to install the same way; simply lift it up and drop it into place. Both the spider and the gooseneck plate are going to come with four pins so that you don't have to rely on your pins from your fifth wheel to be able to get it locked into place. Both of the hitches are going to have the same weight capacities. It's going to have a 25,000 pound gross towing weight and a 6,250 pound tongue weight. Both of these hitches are going to have a carbide black powder coat, which is going to be stronger than just your standard powder coat. You're not going to have to worry about it, shipping or flaking, and then potentially rusting your hitch.With that being said, the hitch is made of a sturdy steel construction. And it will say Curt did a very good job of making this out of a very thick quarter inch steel. So when it comes down to it, they're both going to be made out of the same materials. The spider is going to be a little bit heavier and bulkier to put down into place, and it's going to stick up higher, as we went over. They're both going to feature a 2 5/16 ball. So you're not going to have to worry about them being different in that aspect. What it's really going to come down to is what are you using it for And what are you using it with If you have a short bed truck and you have a camper that you're towing with this and that your camper has a gooseneck coupler on it, or maybe you have a horse trailer that has a larger nose, and you'd like a little bit more space for the cab of your truck to have some more clearance. I would definitely go with the Curt plate. If you have a long bed truck, or you have a short bed truck, but you're just hauling a trailer with a simple gooseneck coupler on it, and you don't have any clearance issues. Then I'd go with the spider.

Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails, 25,000 lbs GTW - 16085

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (258 Customer Reviews)

Well made and fit perfectly into existing 5th wheel rails. Have only used once but the capacity of the hitch exceeds my trucks tow rating so am not expecting any issues. Much easier and cheaper than other options when you already have 5th wheel rails.


Comments
Have used the hitch to tow a flatbed gooseneck trailer loaded with 20ft logs over an 8500 ft mountain without worry. Very robust construction, should last several lifetimes!

it fit our Reese 5th wheel hitch rails perfectly. We hooked our gooseneck 4 horse trailer to it and it pulled just fine.

VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE HITCH, AS WAS THE GUY THAT I BOUGHT THE GOOSE NECK TRAILER FROM. I TOLD HIM ABOUT ETRAILER AND HOW GOOD YOUR SERVICE WAS AND PRICES. AND AS ALWAYS THE SHIPPING WAS FAST! THE THING WEIGHS ALOT! I AM GUESSING THAT THE LEGS ARE SOLID STEEL!

Fit perfect first time. The Reese hitch was welded together so bad its going to scrap.

It has worked very well for what I need, I like to be able to switch back and fourth from gooseneck to fifth wheel, this is a great product highly recommend it!!!

by:

Sturdy built product. Didnt exactly fall into my rail slots but a few whacks with the BFH while standing on it and it aligned. Great option for getting a gooseneck ball in truck bought with fifth wheel rails compared to putting whole new ball hitch in. Ordered 2-24 arrived 2-26.

by:

Received my hitch in just a few days, haven’t used it yet. I’m glad products like this exist so I can hook up to a gooseneck. I chose this one because I have curt rails and I like the spring loaded safety chain loops.

by:

I bought this gooseneck Hitch back in 2016 I can't say I've used it everyday of the week but I do use it pull a cattle trailer occasionally and I've used it to pull 20,000lbs of silage bales out of the field and it's held up great no stress points or anything showing paint has held up great. It's a very heavy built hitch I would deffenitly recommend it to anyone that has the rails in there truck and is doin pretty stressful towing. It also sits the trailer up a lil higher and I love that really helps with twisting and turns.

Amazing shipping speed and a very well designed product! Highly recommended the hitch plate and etrailer.com for their service!

Delivered in the time frame told to me when ordered. Arrived packaged very securely. Opened it , set it into the hitch rails , inserted pins, ready to haul. Very sturdy well, constructed component. Very happy with the purchase, recommend to anyone needing this type conversion.



- 16085
by:

I installed this in minutes and it is just what I needed because my travel trailer fits over this hitch at same time so I always have this hitch in truck. It looks good to me also. It is a solid made product so I have no Cons for this unit. I would recommend this for any one that does not want to change his fifth wheel rail type mounts to the expenses hid away hitch to use a goose mount hitch.

Hitch works great and allows me to keep my 5th wheel hitch ready to use with using the same bed rails it uses!

by:

Very very pleased worked perfectly with my rail system and is super easy to install. Very fast delivery with just the free delivery ordered on 4/13 and received it 4/17.. only thing i will say is its a little taller then i thought it would be but on a non lifted truck there would be completely no problem my truck does have a lift so does make the trailer sit more unlevel then a flat bed mount would but im still extremely pleased with it... will definitely use this company again for anything i need...



- 16085
by:

I love this hitch! It's light enough that I can take it in and out by myself but sturdy enough that I don't worry about hitching up my gooseneck horse trailer to it. Works out perfectly for us! This gives us the option of towing our gooseneck or popping the hitch out and putting our 5th wheel set up in.

Product still working fine. Still sturdy and strong.

Bought this because I bought a horse trailer and needed to bring it home. Great product. Even the guy I bought the trailer from was surprised at how low it set in the bed when he had seen others that were higher. There was no jerking from it like you get with a normal 5th wheel hooked up. This felt like a regular king pin. Highly recommend it.

Works great.

    Both the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch For Fifth Wheel Rails, Item # 16085, and the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch For Fifth Wheel Rails, Item # 16055, will work well for you.

  • What is Trailer Overhang Width When Determining if Trailer Has Clearance to Make Tight Turns
    Basically I was referring to the width of the goosneck trailer nose. So measure the width of the trailer at the very front. This is the formula you referenced though. To determine if you can safely make tight turns, there is a formula you can follow. Measure the distance from the center of the gooseneck ball to the back of the truck cab. Call this measurement A. Next, measure the width of the trailer overhang and divide by 2 to get half, measurement B. If A is 4 inches or more than...

    The common ball size for a gooseneck hitch is 2-5/16 inch and that is what is on the Curt Spyder gooseneck hitch # 16085. On rare occasions you might see a 3 inch ball but it is very uncommon. I have included a link to a video review of this adapter for you. If you have a short bed truck I recommend an adapter with an offset such as # 49080 so you will have more turning clearance.

The Curt Spyder, # 16085, has a low profile design and it is heavier than the Pro Series plate style hitch # 49080. Besides that, there really are not a lot of differences. The big advantage that the Pro Series hitch has is that it can be oriented so that the ball is closer to the back of the truck for more clearance when towing with a short bed truck.

    The one really big downside to gooseneck towing is that there isn't a great solution for short bed truck clearance unlike fifth wheel towing. With fifth wheel hitches you can use a slider hitch and have the clearance issue handled. With gooseneck towing there isn't really anything you can do. The only way it's possible is if the nose of the gooseneck trailer is tapered to help with the turning clearance. The Spyder part # 16085 does fit industry standard fifth wheel rails like you have...

  • Recommendation for a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter for Fifth Wheel Rails
    We do offer gooseneck trailer hitch adapters for standard above the bed 5th wheel rails. I have linked our page of these items for your convenience. All of these gooseneck hitch plates carry a 25,000 lbs. weight capacity. I recommend the Curt Spyder # 16085 because it isn't as bulky as other designs and has spring-loaded safety chain attachments that tuck away when not in use. It is important to point out that these are designed to work with industry standard above the bed rails.

    Pullrite does have a line of hitches that fit industry standard rails like what the part # 16085 is designed to fit. If you had the Superglide 2700 hitch and a rail kit that fit that hitch then yes the adapter would work. One easy way to determine what you have would be to measure the distance between the centers of the rails. If they are 22 inches and look like what I attached a picture of then this adapter will work.

    It really sounds like your gooseneck hitch is designed for a 3 inch gooseneck ball. I know you said that you attached to your friends B and W hitch, but B and W offers a 3 inch ball # BWGNXA2025. The 3 inch setup is less common but it is still seen out there. If your trailer is larger it is very possible that you need a 3 inch ball.

The Spyder cannot be mounted with an offset (with the ball closer to the tailgate) but since you have a long bed truck you would not need the offset for turning clearance.

  • Compatibility of Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter with Husky Fifth Wheel Rails
    The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter Plate is compatible with Valley fifth wheel install rails, and Husky rails were manufactured by Valley. It is a fairly safe bet that the Adapter Plate will most likely be compatible with your rails. You can confirm this by comparing the spacing of the slots on your existing rails to those shown in the photo I provided. If the center-to-center dimension of the mounting slots is 20-1/2 inches, the Curt Spyder would indeed work with your existing rails.
