Very very pleased, good solid steel. Mounted right up to my BW hitch and adapted to my Curt 20K fifth wheel hitch. No issues at all.

Received product 4 days after ordering with free shipping. Seems really well made. No noises or clunks when towing. It dropped right in to my b&w gooseneck and my Reese 5th wheel dropped directly into it. Good product.

The product is great The turn around time from order to delivery is great. The fit is great, Now if you could find away to send a few big strong boys to lift it in the truck I would rate you at a 12 in stead of a 10. Very Happy thank you again.

I cannot not say enough about trailer. Always have had my back with price,knowledge, and the best customer service. I have the Curt X5 Adapter and love it. I have it coupled to the Q24 her hitch My tow vehicle is a 2013 GMC 3500 Dually 4WD and tow a 40' 18k 2012 Keystone Raptor

This is just what I was looking for, already had Curt R5 slider hitch, put B&W hitch on new truck. Tried a gooseneck adapter, but too much flex. Went back to 5th wheel hitch. This adapter is built heavy, weighs over 100lbs by itself. I pull a 14,000lb toy hauler, with a F250 shortbed, needed the slider. I feel much safer with this product. Ordered from e.trailer, shipping was right on, only 3 days.

Received the Curt X5 B&W turnover ball adapter yesterday. Would have been easier to drop in with two people but I was able to do it myself. Dropped right in, and in less then 15 seconds it was dropped and locked. Saved me lots of install time on 5th wheel rails. Set my RBW lil' rocker hitch on and pulled my 10,000 lbs 32' 5th wheel across town without issue. I feel that this is probably the strongest way to go when running a 5th wheel to turnover ball adapter, and its only about $*** which is a fraction of the cost for those other weird complex adapters that side load or flex. Customer feedback was great with optimal response time on my questions.



- 16310
by:

The adaptor twists within the B and W gooseneck hitch causing at times a chunking noise that is rather unnerving although I am quite certain o am not going to lose the 5th wheel now that I know what is that's causing the noise ,it been very very difficult to convince my wife that there is not something drastically wrong.

There is a lot of play so it makes some bad noises I upgraded to the demco recon.

Perfect! Let's me use my Reese 5th wheel hitch that I have had for 15 years and three moves, FINALLY!! Both of my one ton trucks have B&w bed hitches, so I got two for one with the Curt adapter!

Works great, I had a Reese hitch left from my old 5th wheel and two pickups with the turnover ball in the bed. This is easy to install and solid when pulling. Just what I needed.

Works well with 5th wheel hitch. I was hoping to be able to remove adapter fairly easily to access flat bed when not using 5th wheel hitch, but that's not happening. It's a very tight fit in my gooseneck receiver, so not able to remove adapter very well. I'm disappointed in that, but otherwise pleased with your product. Thank you.

I would recommend this product to everybody, excellent price and it only to me and my son five minute to install.



- 16310
by:

The product itself is great! Easy install into the B&W and a quick wiggle or two and my Reese hitch dropped right in. Very sturdy. Shipping beat their expected delivery by 2 days. The exterior box was a bit beat up, but the adapter was fine. Not even a scuff on the finish. etrailer.com has done right by me in all four of my major item purchases. Definitely recommend to others!!

Excellent product, well made and fits as it should on both sides. A device like this, to be worth making and selling, has to have certain assumptions as to fit and function. Curt has done a great job of giving the customer flexibility in fitting up. In my case the (turnover ball) pin went part way in and stuck tight. I thought that removing the rubber shims on the underside of the adapter would be too much downward movement, so, with 5th wheel hitch installed, I found some washboard road to drive on. Problem solved; pin works perfectly. By the way, I call this thing a "spider". After all it has 8 legs.



- 16310
by:

Great product! Ive pulled a 42' to Hell and back not one problem. It is heavy, but it's very solid. My fifth wheel hitch fit straight in. Way cheaper than having to put rails in if you have a factory ball hitch in the bed. Its It's also nice that it's removable so you can haul furniture, or things that can't sit crooked ect. Great product, should last forever. Definitely would recommend



- 16310
by:

Excellent product, good build quality, it didn't work for me as a drop in and use it but etrailer was willing to make it right. My fifth wheel hitch bolted right in with no issues. Excellent how all pieces can be removed leaving a flat bed surface. Do not expect this to fit in 2017 F250 with B&W turnover ball (bwgnrk1117) as it will not lock in place since the ridges in the truck bed are different height than previous year trucks.



- 16310
by:

Excellent product that solved my issue of needing both a gooseneck & fifth wheel hitch in the same truck. Drops right in & fits perfect even with a spray in bedliner. Just towed our 20,000 lb toy hauler with it this past weekend- it performed flawlessly. It actually felt no different than our other truck with the fifth wheel rails bolted in, plus it can be removed & you can be back to pulling a gooseneck in minutes.



- 16310
by:

I was so happy to discover this adapter. I had to have a gooseneck hitch and wanted it to be hidden. I was dreading the fifth wheel rails sticking up in the bed again (bed replacement). This does the trick. Only reason for 4 starts is that it is a bit tight with no bedliner. Not even a spray in. But, I guess the maker has to build to a certain spec and not everyone would have a bedliner...

I recently purchased a 2015 Denali HD to pull our Rockwood 5th wheel. This truck had the B & W goose neck already installed. Instead of removing the hitch from the previous truck, I decided to try the B & W with the Curt X5 5th Wheel adapter. After reading the reviews, I was anxious to see if it fit as some said it did and others not. I ordered it on Wednesday and received it the following Monday. It was so easy to install and fit perfectly. Thanks etrailer.

I recently purchased a used '08 Ford F-350 with a B&S turnover gooseneck hitch. I wanted to use a Reese 16k hitch that I already own and put it in this truck without doing the typical bed rails to attach the fifth wheel hitch. I contacted Etrailer and they quickly identified the Curt X5 adapter to solve my issue. Ordered new adapter and in 3 days I had the unit and everything fit perfectly. This is the second time I have dealt with Etrailer in the last 6 months and I continue to be impressed with all aspects of this company. I'm glad I found Etrailer 6 months ago when I was looking for trailer hub and brake parts. I knew just who to turn to with my latest needs. Thanks Etrailer!

Great. Works well to allow me to go from goose neck to fifth and back again with ease. Very satisfied!

Took a bit of work removing pieces of the truck bed liner to get it in place, but it has worked wonderfully since then! We are "full time" 5th wheelers this year, and the hitch and adapter has been great.

Works great. I would rather install a B&W gooseneck hitch and use this easy conversion for the 5th wheel than install the fifth wheel hitch.

    Correct, the Curt # 16310 will not fit in your 2017 Ford F250 with your turnover ball. Here is the Demco Alternative # DM6140. This one works with B&W Turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitches and is Compatible with Demco Hijacker Premier Series, B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches.

  • Using Gooseneck 5th Wheel Rail Adapter on 2017 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    The Curt X5 Rail Adapter # 16310 is designed to mount to the square B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hole to provide above-bed, industry standard 5th wheel base rails. The adapter itself (along with any other similar rail adapter) will not provide any type of turning clearance. For a short bed truck like yours you will still need to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch to provide the necessary cab clearance for making tight turns. For your 2017 Ram 2500 you will actually want to go with the Demco...

    There are some B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck trailer hitch and truck combinations that are not compatible with the Curt X5 adapter # 16310.

If you look at the product page for the Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550035 or 18K # DM8550034, Demco states it cannot be used with rails that are part of a gooseneck adapter plate-base rails must be securely bolted to your truck.

    Yes, the Curt X5 adapter part # 16310 has been confirmed to fit the B and W gooseneck hitch you have installed in your 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 and will provide you with a set of fifth wheel rails. The other option you have would be a B and W Companion hitch # BWRVK3500 that will fit the hitch you have installed. This will provide you with a fifth wheel hitch that will fit the gooseneck hitch directly and won't require the use of an adapter. This would be the route I would recommend.

  • Can a Curt X5 Adapter be Used in a B&W Gooseneck Hitch in a 2016 Ram 3500 Short Bed
    The X5 adapter # 16310 is not compatible with the B&W gooseneck hitches for the 2016 Ram 3500. The issue is that it does not drop down far enough into the gooseneck ball hole for the pin to go through the hole in the shank of the X5 adapter. We made Curt aware of this and expect that they will resolve it at some point but have not heard anything yet.
