Video Transcript for Curt Gooseneck - Gooseneck for Fifth Wheel Rails - 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. .

I really like that I can put the ball to the rear and have more clearance between the truck and trailer, 647039

If, like me, you are one of the few people left that have above bed rails for your fifth wheel hitch, this gooseneck ball is the ideal companion piece for your rig. Because it mounts on top of the rails the ball is quite a bit higher than an under bed or turn over ball. A simple adjustment to the gooseneck hitch takes care of that problem. It is possible to leave the ball mounted to the rails and then mount your fifth wheel hitch over that. This makes storage of the ball and plate easy when not in use. Curt offers an outstanding value in all their towing equipment. 583598

I purchased this Curt product last year to allow my recently aquired 40' KS Fuzion TH equipped with a Reese Goosebox to be coupled with my '15 GMC Sierra 3500 DCDA. I had previously fitted my truck with a Curt custom fitted universal rail kit as GM didn't offer the puck mount system when the truck was ordered in March /'14 and my previous K-Z 5ver TH was equipped with a Reese 5th Airborne hitch . The Curt gooseneck adaptor allows easy R/R for other use of my trucks bed as it weighs about 30#s which was a blessing vs nearly 200#s conventional previous 5th wheel hitch on my bad back. I find the ball easier to couple as I can see it in my rearview mirrror and connects and disconnect even on uneven terrain. The Curt adaptor has very little play when mounted and makes for a quiet connection to the Reese Goosebox which provides a smooth ride to TV and 5ver. The hard coating is holding up well to SoCal weather but the ball needs occasional silicon spray as the hard coating has worn off. Curt has made a great product which Etrailer competitively priced and shipped in a timely manner. Who could ask for more. Happy Trails. 597053

Received my hitch in the mail on Tuesday, and had it installed in under 90 seconds into my existing rails. Great, solid and sturdy construction. Excellent finish. Will be used to haul 4 - 6 horse aluminum GN trailer. 512557

by:

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

Took it out of the box and slapped it to the rails. Pinned right up. I liked the longer pins. They are longer than the one that came with my other named 5th wheel hitch. Looks great.

Wow! I was surprised. Received this in two days. Impressed with the weight, it is truly heavy duty. My bed rails must be a little off as I had to stand on it and give it a good whack with a four by four to get it in the slots. It did go in and will be hauling a 25 ft GN tandem loaded with a tractor, brush mower, loader, and side by side. 607099

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • Height of Curt Bent Plate Gooseneck Hitch Versus The Curt Spyder Goosneck Hitch
  • The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16085 sits 7-1/2 inches above the rails at the highest point. The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails - 3" Offset # 16055 will sit lower with the top of the ball 5 inches from the top of the rails. I've attached some measurements to assist.

  • 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...

  • Will the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Instal Kit Fit a 2008 Ford F-350 with Firehawk 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Yes, the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit part # C16100 is listed as a fit for your 2008 Ford F-350 but unless you want to drill into the frame of your truck, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ford part # C16448-204 is what I recommend you use as there is no frame drilling required. However, there are a few issues you might run into trying to reuse the Putnam Firehawk 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch. For example, if this hitch is not designed for use...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 Gooseneck 5th Wheel Adapter Fit Pullrite ISR Series Rails
  • The "ISR" series uses the industry standard for fifth wheel rails. Since you already have industry standard rails installed, The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch For Fifth Wheel Rails # 16055 adapter will fit. It will give you an easy transition from fifth wheel towing to gooseneck towing. This hitch is simple to install and simple to remove. It has a 3" offset and is good for maximum gross towing weight of 25000 lbs and a tongue weight of 6250 lbs.

  • Can Curt Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter # 16055 Be Used on Long Bed Truck
  • The 3 inch offset of the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16055 that you referenced is designed to either move the weight of the trailer either slightly before or after the axle of the truck. In most cases this is used to give additional clearance to allow the truck cab to not end up hitting the overhang of the trailer around corners. But this isn't typically needed for an 8 foot long truck bed. So you can either run it forward or reverse and it would be fine.

  • 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...

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...

However, the Sidewinder would NOT be compatible with a B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3400-5W.

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.

The recommended amount of clearance between the bedsides and trailer is about 5-6".

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.

  • For your 2015 Ram 2500 short bed with Curt 5th wheel rails, I recommend the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails - 3" Offset - 25,000 lbs # 16055. Because you have the short bed, this will give you a little more clearance around turns.

  • 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.

  • Can the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Part # 16055 Install Both Ways
  • Yes, the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails part # 16055 can be installed where the offset is closest to the cab or where the offset is closest to the tailgate. In order to reduce rattling, I strongly recommend using the Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners part # 16900 between the gooseneck hitch and base rails. You may also want to consider using the Curt Safety-Chain Loops for Gooseneck Hitches on 5th Wheel Rails part # C16000 as some states require that safety...

  • 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...

  • 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. Any hitch other than this lightweight...

  • Goose Box Compatibility or Options for Leland 7900 Pin Box and 2016 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • There is not a Goose Box that will fit the 14 inch width of your Leland 7900 pin box. Since your Ranch Hitch Adapter isn't allowing enough clearance, your best option to get the turning clearance you need with your short bed truck is to use the Sidewinder Fifth Wheel King Pin with Rotating Turret and then a fixed mounted 5th wheel hitch and rail kit. The Sidewinder pin boxes cannot be used with any gooseneck adapter. For the Sidewinder, there are a few options: 19K # ST400-SW19K 16K...
