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

Very happy so far! Received in less then a week from the day I ordered it. Fit excellent in my 5th wheel rails. I will be testing it out this weekend on my 37ft camper. 445478

Fit was exact, no slop or play. Finish is nice and appears to be robust. I installed this in a 2014 Superduty. I purchased the rail kit and a fifth wheel hitch from etrailer a couple years prior. The rail kit I purchased required that a center bolt be installed midway in each rail. The center bolt adds strength to this style adapter, and is recommended by the manufacturer. This adapter is a huge problem solver as I sometimes haul a fifth wheel RV and also need to haul a gooseneck stock trailer. Installs in about two minutes, heavy duty yet manageable. 473111

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 received my order within days and opened the box and in 5 minutes dropped it into place. Currently have a 16k fifth wheel attachment on a Reese foundation. The gooseneck plate fit just like it was made for it. No tools required. This now makes my F-250 more adaptable to different trailers. 456409

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

First let me say I was very appreciative of Angela working with me to get the gooseneck hitch in time to meet my needs. The hitch fit perfectly in my existing rails. Thanks to the shipping folks as well. 488580

I ordered the 16055 above-bed gooseneck hitch for the fifthwheel rails. I was concerened that it might not be heavy enough for the price that it was, but I was wrong. It is well built, heavy and was just what I was looking for. The box it shipped in was destroyed and lost the rail pins and clips but I called and they shipped the replacements out the same day. They were really nice and understanding. 472783

Wow, this plate is awesome! Heavy quality steel with a durable powdercoat finish. The ball is not only secured to the plate, but also has a mounted plate welded under it for added strength. This is a huge improvement compared to older model rail plates. The offset ball is a perfect feature for shortness, and this plate comes with the locking hardware too! I am very impressed! 473740

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

Easy to order and fast to ship. Just put the product in and had to do some grinding on the tabs so it would go down in the holes. After that it fit just fine and looks great. 461426

I’m sorry that I have been slow to review, my truck has been in the shop and I just got it back. etrailer’s product description was absolutely spot on. They shipped incredibly quickly and the product arrived in perfect condition. I just put it in the truck and it fit perfectly. I’m very sure that it will do everything that I expect it to do. 573226

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


Comments

My hitch that was once installed under a fifth wheel hitch has now become my full time hitch. I bought a new Open range camper last year that comes with both fifth wheel and goose neck hitches. I tried the goose neck hitch and liked it very well. I found it easier to hitch up than fifth wheel by using a magnetic hitch ball set in front of the goose ball. Back up till trailer hitch touches guide ball and get and lower trailer onto ball. No listening for clicks to see if trailer connected or not.

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

Exactly what I expected... works great a person can't get any better than Curt products they are built like a tank.

I would recommend them to anyone !!!! 269692

Great product at a great price. I already had a fifth wheel hitch in my pickup. I can hardly believe someone had this great idea to make this to switch out with my fifth hitch using my fifth wheel hitch rails. It only take two minutes to switch back and forth between this and my fifth hitch. 528507

Very fast delivery, showed up in 2 days. The hitch fit and was mounted in minutes. Haven't had to use it yet, but looks quality built. Couldn't be happier with the service, one call and got all the info I needed to make a sound decision. Thank you for hooking me up. 516462

So far so good. Delivery and packaging was good. Fit the rails fine, looks good. The ball is offset quite a bit but it did say that in description. Only held back on 5th star because I haven’t had a chance to use it yet, not really the fault of the product 554433

One of the best products I have bought. If yours on a budget this plate is the best way to go. Plus you don't destroy your bed and using the rail system you can switch or not have anything and still use your entire bed of your truck. 446516

  • Recommended Base Rails and Andersen Hitch for 2002 Chevy Avalanche Z71 1500
  • The Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System with Adapter - 20,000 lbs # AM3200 can work with any standard 5th wheel base rails. There is not a custom fit for your 2002 Chevy Avalanche, so you would need to use the universal base rails # RP30035. You will want to pay attention to your maximum towing capacity and your payload capacity as you will be close to your vehicle limits with this combination prior to loading your trailer.

  • 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.

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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • Does Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Fit Same Base Rails as Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitch?
  • The Curt Q24 # 16055 fits industry-standard above-bed rails which is also what the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16055 fits. So long as those are the rails you have and not underbed rails then this gooseneck will work for you. I've attached a link to a video review of this gooseneck hitch for you to take a look at as well.

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

  • Is a Sidewinder Pin Box Compatible With a B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch?
  • To use any Sidewinder pin box like # RP61452, you will not be able to keep your B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck hitch because it is not made for the torque when turning required for that system. No adapter will solve this. However, there is still a way to allow you to tow a gooseneck trailer using a 5th wheel rail kit. You have a couple options. If you want to keep a clean bed, then you can use the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30074...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Gooseneck Hitch for 2015 RAM 2500 64 Inch Bed with Ram Box
  • The Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter - Single Jaw - 21,000 lbs # DM8550045 is not a good option for your 2015 Ram short box with Ram Box. The issue with Ram Box is that it limits the ability to use a 5th wheel hitch because the boxes get in the way of the Pin Box on your trailer. The only option for Ram Box is to use a standard hitch (not a gooseneck adapted hitch) and then a Sidewinder Pin Box to move the turning point of the trailer back 22 inches to avoid...

  • How to Determine if Curt Gooseneck Adapter # 16055 Will Fit RBW Base Rails
  • The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16055 will mount to all "standard" 5th wheel base rails. I am not sure what the measurements are for RBW rails but I have attached a picture that shows the dimensions of "standard" bed rails as well as dimensions of where the tabs are for the Curt unit.

  • 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.

  • 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...
