Video Transcript for Curt Gooseneck 16055 Review

Today we're going to take a look at Curt Above-Bed Bent Plate Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 5th wheel rails. Has a 3-inch off-set, and a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now the part we're talking about is this center plate right here. Now this will allow your pick-up truck to equip with the 5th wheel, above bed rails to tow the Gooseneck Trailer. This part itself weighs about 40 pounds. It has an Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, very simple to install and remove.

It is designed to mount into industry standard 5th wheel base rails made by Curt. Draw-Tite Hidden Hitch Reese and Valley. So very quick 4 pin installation, and removal for easy truck bed access. It does include the pins, and the clips to secure the hitch to the rails. Basically, you'll see the tabs on the plate, you just drop it right into the middle holes, so they're all in there.

Take one of your clips off the pin, just slide your pin through there, it'll go through the rails through there, and then just push your pin on to lock, to secure it into place. You'll do that on all 4 corners. Again it comes with the pins, and the clips all included. It does feature this welded 2 and 5/16ths diameter trailer ball right here. Has a 3-inch offset from the center of the plate. Just lift that up, and you can see how it's not exactly centered, there's a 3-inch offset.

You can install it 2 ways. You can install it this way, where the ball would be closer to the cab, and that would be if you have like a long bed truck, and the clearance isn't as much of a problem. But if you do use a short bed truck, and you want to make sure you have more clearance, you can reverse it to where the ball will be closer to the tailgate for a short bed truck, to give you that additional clearance between your truck's cab, and Gooseneck Trailer. The holes right here you can see, is your built-in safety chained catcher slot, that you can hook your safety chains to. The finish on this plate is a durable carbide powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. Gross towing rate capacity is 25,000 pounds.

Vertical load limit, or pin weight capacity is 6,250 pounds. Again the ball size diameter is 2 and 5/16ths. Offset is 3-inches, and the rise right here above the rails, is about 1 and 1/2 inches. Now one thing I do want to mention is that on some states, the safety chains do have to be attached to a separate connection point other than the hitch. So you might want to check the laws in your area to make sure. You might get to if so,inaudible 00:02:21 attach them into the hitch, or they might have to be attached to a different location. But that should do it for the review of the Curt Above-Bed Bent Plate Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 5th wheel rails, with the 3-inch offset, and the 25,000 pound weight capacity. .

A cost effective product that is built just as well as the more expensive ones. Plan to use mainly to tow horse trailer. Appreciate the quick delivery. 265319

Great product at a great price. Needed a gooseneck for occasional hauling but didn't want to lose my 5th wheel rails and this fit the bill. Had to loosen the bolts on one rail to get it to sit in place but was a 10 min fix. Had about 10k behind me so far through various terrains and it has done nothing other than what it is intended for. Can't say enough about customer service either, any question i had they had helpful advice and were nothing but nice. Would reccomend this product and ETrailer to anyone in need. 240760

Received the Curt bent plate gooseneck hitch in less than a week and it fit right in the existing fifth wheel rails. Really like this hitch and with it I am going to be able to salvage a trailer that hasn't been on the road since 1994 that would have ended up as scrap metal otherwise! Thank you etrailer for the prompt and reliable service. 400818

We had a fifth wheel trailer hitch install in our truck when we purchase our fifth wheel RV. A couple of years later we purchase a gooseneck horse trailer, some friends of ours were telling us about a gooseneck trailer hitch you could attach to your fifth wheel rails. When researching this I came across your website and found the above-bed gooseneck trailer hitch for fifth wheel rails, this is exactly what we needed. I ordered it, we couldn't be happier! Thanks for having this great product and saving us money, too! 366500

I am very happy with this product. I ordered it on Sunday and it was on my porch and in my truck by Wednesday. The plate fit perfectly and very strong product. Would recommend etrailer to everyone who needs to be treated with great quality and respect. Thank you Bradley Sanger Texas 333889

I Just bought a used truck that already had the 5th wheel rails installed but needed a gooseneck hitch. When you are looking for help with ghosts you call..."Ghost Busters" but when you need anything related to "Hitches" just go to "etrailer" on the web. My truck saleman had a guy that would fix me up for $179.00 (his cost). E Trailer was only $139.00 for a better gooseneck plate and I didn't have to drive an hour to get it. Etrailer is always the only place to go. 213298

I got all the right equipment very promptly. The price was fair and communication was great. I was emailed that I had my equipment before I got home and seen it. The boxes where damaged a bit and had extra tape holding them together, when I realized I was missing a bolt pack I ordered a new one and they credited me the cost. Great experience in the real world of humans. I will do more business with this team. 380547

I purchased the 3"offset Curt gooseneck hitch for 5th wheel rails and am very pleased. Ordering was a breeze and the item was delivered several days before promised! It was exactly as described. Installation was really simple. In less than 5 minutes the hitch was pinned into the rails, I was hooked to my trailer and heading down the road. I highly recommend this product. 329458

by: Joe Franklin02/20/2017


Exceptional value! Fits the rail spacing perfectly and even fits underneath the 5th wheel hitch without any interference. I paid less for this hitch than I would have for a used hitch. etrailer has become my "go to" place for most of my towing needs. The price is reasonable (often with free shipping), and you really can't beat the value! 343907

Heavy duty gooseneck hitch to fit standard 5th wheel rails. Mine fit right under the 5th wheel hitch on the rails. Nothing to remove except the 5th wheel hitch when you want to use the gooseneck hitch. Must be powder coated as it hasn't rusted. I am very satisfied with it. Why install a dedicated gooseneck hitch when you can have both. 303897

by: Chris K04/11/2017


You guys were awesome just as you have proven to be in recent purchases. The Curt above bed gooseneck hitch is a great addition to my fifth wheel rails. I have it installed beneath the fifth wheel hitch and don't need to remove it for any reason. If I need the gooseneck hitch I just pull the fifth wheel hitch out and viola. 365753

Looks like an excellent addition to my pick-up`s usefulness.Took longer to un-pack the box, than it did to in-stall in the rails. It dropped right in;no forcing or anything.This is the second product I`ve ordered from your company.Very pleased with both hitches.The first was a Reese 5-th wheel hitch.Keep up the good work! 297077

  • Towing 5th Wheel Trailer Using Short Bed Truck w/ Gooseneck Hitch
  • The Reese Sidewinder WILL work with B&W hitches that are compatible with industry standard rails, like the B&W Patriot, part # BWRVK3270 would work great for you. However, the Sidewinder would NOT be compatible with a B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3400-5W. The Companion would mount into a B&W Turnover ball gooseneck hitch but since the Companion has only a single mounting point to the vehicle, the concern is that the one attachment point couldn't handle the twisting force that the Sidewinder...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Toyota Tundra
  • With a 6-1/2 foot bed on your 2015 Toyota Tundra, there are components under the bed that do not allow the B&W Companion hitch from fitting on the 6-1/2 foot bed truck. The good news is you still have a couple options I recommend for both a gooseneck and a 5th wheel hitch on your 2015 Toyota Tundra. The option that is most similar to what you are looking at is to use the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch w/ Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs, # C60751. You can then...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing Options for 2015 Ram 1500 Hemi w/ 5 Foot Bed
  • Due to the short bed that won't leave much clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the rear of the cab, there are only two ways to tow a fifth wheel without risking damaging the truck and the front of the fifth wheel. You can use a stationary fifth wheel hitch with a Sidewinder replacement fifth wheel pin box or a Demco HiJacker Autoslide, either of which would provide enough clearance between the truck and fifth wheel so that you can negotiate turns. The Sidewinder would...

  • Adapter to Allow Truck with 5th Wheel Hitch to Pull a Gooseneck Trailer
  • Yes, there are adapters made that will allow a vehicle with a 5th wheel hitch to pull a gooseneck trailer. Most of these adapters, such as # 2085205 from Wallace Forge, adapt the trailer's gooseneck coupler to match the truck, but we also offer adapters like the Curt # 16055 that adapt the truck. This unit replaces the hitch and fits into the same industry-standard base rails. The link provided will let you view all such items and the included article explains the different types that...

  • Available 5th Wheel Adapters with Offset
  • We do offer adapters that allow a gooseneck trailer to be towed by a truck with a 5th wheel hitch. Some of these offer a bit of offset for better trailer-to-cab clearance. Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16055 fits into industry-standard 5th wheel rails (ISRs) and provide 3-inches of offset. Husky # HT31368 has the same 3-inch offset. None offers 12-inches of offset. If you need another type of adapter you can use the linked page to select the category...

  • Availability of Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for 2015 Big Tex 25DU Gooseneck Dump Trailer
  • If your truck has a fifth wheel hitch that uses industry standard rails (like those sold by Reese, Curt, Valley and Husky), the easiest way to tow the trailer would be to use a gooseneck ball that attaches to your bed mounted rails like the Curt # 16055. Big Tex tells me they used a Bulldog 4 inch square tube coupler on your trailer, so if your fifth wheel doesn't use industry standard rails, you'd need to remove the existing coupler and install the # BD0289650300 Bulldog Gooseneck to...

Unfortunately, Reese doesn't offer a rail adapter similar to the X5 that's compatible with their gooseneck hitches.

  • 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.

  • Curt manufactures X5 models that will fit in B &W Turnover Ball or Curt Gooseneck Hitches. The way the Flip-Over Gooseneck ball latches to the hitch isn't compatible with the X5 adapters. I'd recommend removing the hitch, and installing fifth wheel hitch install rails in the bed of the truck, like part # RP50140-58 unless your truck has overload springs and a gas engine, in which case you'd use # RP56011-53. Once the rails are in place, you can use any industry standard rail compatible...

  • Recommended Custom Install Kit For 5th Wheel Rails On 2016 GMC 2500 And Gooseneck Adapter
  • For the easiest install on your 2016 GMC 2500 Denali, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56001-53. These rails are 48 inches long and make it a little easier to install the rails to the custom brackets. If you want the traditional 43 inch length rails, the custom bracket kit I recommend for your truck is # RP50066-58. These kits come with all the hardware needed for installation. They require no drilling...

  • 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.

  • Will Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Work With Reese 5th Wheel Above Bed Rails

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Gooseneck Hitch that Fits in 5th Wheel Rails and Has an Offset
  • There are gooseneck plates that have an offset depending on which way you mount it to the rails in the truck. You can use Pro Series gooseneck hitch plate # 49080, Curt model # 16055, or Husky model # HT31368. I have linked videos of all three products for you. I also recommend safety chain loops # C16000 because many places do not allow the safety chain loops to attach to the hitch.

  • 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...

  • It sounds like you would like to have the factory installed above bed rails on your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 and would like to add a gooseneck hitch in as well. To do this you will want the to use an above the bed gooseneck hitch adapter. Since you have a 6 foot bed you may need an adapter with an offset like the Curt # 16055 with a 3 inch offset.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit, Slider Hitch and Gooseneck Adapter for 1991 Ford F-350 Short Bed
  • The two adapters you mentioned fit fifth wheel rail kits and give you a gooseneck hitch ball. There would be no way to use one of the plate adapters and a fifth wheel slider at the same times. But if you can email me back with more info on what you are planning on towing I can see what you'd need. If I am understanding you correctly you want a set of fifth wheel rails so that you can tow a fifth wheel trailer and then an adapter to allow you to tow a gooseneck hitch?
