Video Transcript for Curt Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters - Adapts Truck - 16310 Review

Speaker 1: Today I'm going to take a look at the Curt X5 fifth wheel base rails adapter for the B&W turnover bulb gooseneck trailer hitches and this has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Now this adapter is designed to mount in to your gooseneck trailer hitch to supply these above bed base rails, which are necessary for installing a fifth wheel hitch to your vehicle.This is designed to work with the B&W standard center turnover ball gooseneck hitches, and the rails are designed to work with the above bed fifth wheel hitches by Curt, B&W, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley. It is a very fast, easy installation. This adapter, if you look here, I'm going to turn it around. If you see in the very center is a square post. You just drop that square post end of the adapter into the square gooseneck ball hole, and then lock it into place, and then that will give you the rails right here in your truck bed.On the underside of the rails, they do have rubber pads, which will help prevent these rails from rattling and sliding in your truck bed.

This is made of a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice black carbide powder coat finish to it, for superior durability and rust resistance. This part is made in the USA.Specs on this again, the gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds, vertical load limit is 4,000 pounds. But that should do it for the review on the Curt X5 fifth wheel base rail adapters for B&W turnover ball gooseneck trailer hitches.

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!! 628649

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. 625363

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. 494852

etrailer priced matched to best the competition. The hitch was delivered a day earlier in great shape and ready to use. Exactly what I needed! Great job! The Curt 16310 hitch allows me the flexibility of using a B&W gooseneck hitch to pull a stock trailer. I can then install the 16310 hitch, drop my 5th wheel hitch on top and go camping. Thanks to everyone at etailer Corporation 547937

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. 554188

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. 602731

Fit is very tight and took some effort for B&W rod to slide through. May take an extraordinary effort to extract from mount. I'll try some day and let you know. For now it will stay. Needless to say, simply installing and uninstalling is not easy. I think if the hole for the B&W rod were slightly larger it might be easier to install and uninstall. 582599

Fit just like it was suppose to, but was a little heavier than I thought it was going to be. Had a hard time finding pens to mount the 5th wheel to the rails. Looks to be very well built. 528821

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! 505316

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.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Compatible with Husky Slider
    The Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitches # 16310 is not compatible with Husky 10-26K or 10-16K fifth-wheel sliders based on the design of the hitch and the adapter not being a fit. The adapter has a raised portion in the middle that is not compatible with the bases of these hitches or the B&W Patriot slider hitch. It also isn't compatible with certain truck models with the turnoverball hitch installed. For these hitches or vehicles, I...

    There is indeed an odd issue with using the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter part # 16310 on a 2017 Ford F-350 with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch. That said, the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter part # DM6140 will work with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350 and it allows you to use the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16120 so this is what I recommend to save some cash but the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2002 Chevy 3500 with Gooseneck Hitch Installed
    When you already have a gooseneck hitch in your 2002 Chevy 3500, you unfortunately won't be able to add base rails as they will interfere with the gooseneck hitch mounts. There are adapters for some gooseneck systems that allow you to use more standard hitch options. For instance we have the Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500 if you have a B&W gooseneck hitch or the Curt X5 # 16310 for that same system. If you have the Curt Double Lock, there is the X5 adapter # C16210 or # C16220...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Options for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
    A sliding hitch is necessary for a short bed truck if you don't have a Sidewinder style rotating pin box to give you the turning clearance you need so your trailer doesn't make contact with the cab of your truck. Although the B&W Companion Slider # BWRVK3400-5W is the one of the best options for a slider, you are correct that you do have other options. The biggest issue is that you can't have 5th wheel rails and your gooseneck installed at the same time due to the mounting locations,...

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter for 2006 Ram 3500 with Valley Stow-A-Ball or Similar Gooseneck Hitch
    In 2006 Ram trucks did not come with a factory gooseneck hitch. That would have been a dealer option. Based on your picture it appears to be a Valley Stow-A-Ball hitch or something very similar. What I recommend to tow a 5th wheel trailer is to use the Demco Recon # DM8550045. This hitch attaches to a standard 2-5/16 inch gooseneck ball regardless of brand. It is rated for 21,000 pounds, and since it has an actual 5th wheel hitch head it provides a safer connection than other adapters. Another...

  • Using a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch with Factory Prep Package on a 2918 Ford F-350
    I do have a solution for you but the Curt X5 adapter # 16310 does not work with the factory gooseneck hitch on the 2018 Ford F-350. Instead you can use adapter # RP30156. It is made to fit the factory puck system (instead of the gooseneck hole) and your Patriot 5th wheel hitch will fit the adapter. You could also use Demco adapter # DM6175 for the same purpose. I have linked videos of both adapters for you.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer Using an Adapter for a B&W Gooseneck Hitch
    Ideally you would use the B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W which mounts in the ball hole of your B&W gooseneck hitch. The problem with adapters such as # CAB-C5G is that they put additional stress on the trailer. This is a result of the connection point between the trailer and the hitch being greater than using a 5th wheel hitch. The convert-A-Ball adapter will work but it is not what I would use if it were me. Another option is to use the Curt X5 adapter # 16310 and then most any...

He pointed out that the center of the X5 is raised slightly and some Husky/Valley Hitches didn't allow enough clearance.

    The Curt X5 adapter # 16310 does put weight from the 5th wheel and hitch on the actual truck bed. That weight is dispersed to a wider area because the rails on the adapter are essentially 5th wheel rails. I have not heard reports of the adapter bending the aluminum beds of the new Ford trucks. Another option instead of using the X5 adapter is to use a B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3500 for long beds or # BWRVK3400 for the slider version for short beds. Either of these hitches mount...
