Video Transcript for Curt Gooseneck 16085 Review

Today were going to review part #: 16085. This is the Curt spider gooseneck trailer hitch for fifth wheel rails. This spider gooseneck trailer hitch is designed to fit on the above bed rails in your truck bed if you want to switch to hooking up to a gooseneck trailer. This does have a capacity of 25,000lbs, gross towing weight capacity. It has a two and 5/16ths size trailer hitch ball. It does require a fifth wheel base rails and a bracket kit which are sold separately or if you already have them installed in your vehicle.

For demonstration purposes I am showing it installed in rails because I want to show you how easy it is to put it in and remove it. This will mount to the industry standard Valley, DrawTite, Reese, Hidden Hitch and Curt fifth wheel rails. It does come with the pins and clips for attaching to the rails. It also has, let me show you right here and Ill show you in a minute here, when I lift it up it has spring-loaded safety chain attachments that you can hook your safety chains to. The finish on this is a durable ever-gloss powder coat finish that will resist rust and corrosion.

I dont have it pinned in right now, but I just want to show you. It probably weights 40 or 50lbs, so its not too bad. If you just lift it up. Then I wanted to show you, heres the, underneath, you can see the spring-loaded safety chain attachments. Then basically you just put it in.

You just line it up to the holes in the rails. It sits right down in there, nice and tight. Then you just take your pins, slide it through, put your clip on there and do that on all four and its secured in place. That should do it for our review on part #: 16085, the Curt spider gooseneck trailer hitch for fifth wheel rails.

Somehow the hitch and the bolts made it but I am not sure how. The packaging was crazy. Holes in it then it had been wrapped and stapled with cardboard all around. The delivery company left it in a yard swing in my front yard. I just happen to see it. No note on the door or anything. I have no idea how long it had been there. This is no reflection on etrailer because you guys are great and were a wonderful help to me in getting me what I need. I really appreciate you all and will do business with you again and tell others to also! Thanks a million! 226129

This is the greatest hitch! Easy In - Easy Out! not so heavy that I cannot install or remove all by myself. It was the most perfect decision for us!

I bought the B&W turnover ball hitch for my pickup from these guys almost twelve years ago and it's nice to see they're still in business and still providing great service! This time I went for a Cur gooseneck adapter to go on the fifth wheel rails already in the truck we bought. I ordered on a Sunday and it was delivered midday on Wednesday in Vt. Very good packaging with a second outer box with handles to facilitate carrying the heavy hitch. The actual hitch plate looks really well made and the price is really great. I would highly recommend these guys for quality, speed, service and good value. 226114

The item is the perfect match for my recievers in the bed of my truck. The customer service is fantactic and knowledgable of their products and the item was delivered a day earlier than expected. Purchasing this product saved me $500. A local retailer who tried to sell me a similar product for $800 just for the hitch.The box the hitch came in was torn open in four areas but luckily all the hardware was still in the box upon delivery and it dropped into the recievers with alittle banging from my mallet. Thanks. 52679

The hitch is very good quality. I'm looking forward to having the option of using the goose neck hitch on the same rails as the fifth wheel hitch. The packaging was not sufficient for shipping. I received the package the day after ordering, which was great. The box was torn in several places and the Styrofoam was all busted up. The FedEx delivery guy noted the condition, and the hitch was in perfect shape. I'm glad there were no loose parts in the box. 200552

I have a 2015 F350 ccsb to which I added removable industry standard rails. This Curt Spyder hitch makes going from a fifth wheel setup to a gooseneck simple....and when I want a completely clean bed I can remove the hitch and rails. The price at etrailer was the nice and it arrived in less than a week. I would highly recommend if you need an easy way to swap between fifth-wheel and gooseneck hitches. 341749

The 5th Wheel Spyder arrived in good condition. It is a solid design and I am satisfied with it. My difficulty was that the dimension between two of the arms as about 0.05 inches too large to fit easily into the slots of my truck without making adjustments beneath the truck. I can not say if the fault is with the 5 wheel rail installation, or with the Spyder because I do not know the tolerance range. 208902

Extremely fast shipping. I got package in 3 days in PA. I unclipped the fifth wheel and this gooseneck hitch fit right in. Didn't have to adjust rails or hammer it in like other people said they had to. I used the same pins as fifth wheel hitch so I have spare pins. I will hook up to a 20'x102" livestock trailer tomorrow. I'm going to Nebraska to get some cattle so I'll let you know how it towes. 362013

Extremely satisfied with this hitch and the entire experience. Very easy shopping online and FAST shipping. We purchased a truck that already had the RV rails in the bed so we ordered this hitch to convert to a gooseneck. It was SO easy to attach and very well made, very heavy duty. Definitely recommend etrailer and this product for value and price! 333287

Previous review I thought was this and now have two reviews on the actual hitch............received fast and free shipment in 3 days Great fit and set right in place - snug fit not movement. Will set your nose up 5"'s on your goose neck trailer but from what I can tell pulling an empty load this should be fine. Great product. 281308

Ask the Experts about this Curt Gooseneck
Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • Comparing the Curt Spyder and Pro Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for 5th Wheel Rails
  • First, I have included a link to all of the gooseneck hitches we carry that fit in 5th wheel rails. The Curt Spyder, # 16085, has a low profile design and it is heavier than the Pro Series plate style hitch # 49080. Besides that, there really are not a lot of differences. The big advantage that the Pro Series hitch has is that it can be oriented so that the ball is closer to the back of the truck for more clearance when towing with a short bed truck. For me, I like the Pro Series...

  • Dimensions of the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16085
  • Curt does not usually provide their product drawings or spec diagrams for their products, but, if you were looking for a specific dimension on the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # 16085, just let me know and I can get that for you. I have attached a photo showing some basic dimensions of this hitch for your convenience. The mounting tabs on this hitch are 20-1/2 inches apart side to side on center and 22 inches apart front to back on center. This hitch was designed to fit in the...

  • Recommendations for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Short Bed Truck with a Gooseneck Hitch
  • Since you have a short bed truck I would not recommend you use a fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter to tow your RV. The problem will be that you will not have enough clearance to make 90 degree turns with the RV because of the lack of clearance between the front of the trailer and the cab of your truck. Some fifth wheel trailers do not recommend the use of adapters so you will want to check the owners manual of the trailer as well. Honestly the best recommendation I could give you would...

  • Availabliltiy of a 8 Inch Offset Gooseneck Hitch
  • I can help you find a gooseneck (hitch) OPTION with an offset for your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado. For your 8 inch offset need, I would recommend the B&W Extend-a-Goose Coupler # BWTEXA4200 in conjunction with the Curt Spider 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter # 16085. This will give you 10 inches of clearance between your truck cab and trailer. According to my contact the B&W and Curt Spider are compatible because the Spider has a standard 2-5/16 inch ball that the coupler requires. Unfortunately,...

  • Will Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # 16085, Fit in Reese 5th WHeel Trailer Hitch Rails
  • The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # 16085, is compatible with the Reese 5th wheel rails you have. I have included a link to the installation details for this hitch for you to view. We do have several options for gooseneck trailer hitches that fit in 5th wheel rails. The most economical is Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate, # 49080. The benefit of this hitch is that it can be mounted with the ball closer to the rear of the truck to provide an offset if you have a short bed truck....

  • Compatibility of Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter with Husky Fifth Wheel Rails
  • The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter Plate is compatible with Valley fifth wheel install rails, and Husky rails were manufactured by Valley. It is a fairly safe bet that the Adapter Plate will most likely be compatible with your rails. You can confirm this by comparing the spacing of the slots on your existing rails to those shown in the photo I provided. If the center-to-center dimension of the mounting slots is 20-1/2 inches, the Curt Spyder would indeed work with your existing rails.

  • What is the Thickness of the Metal on the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16085
  • I went out into our warehouse and measured the dimensions of the legs that run from the hitch plate to the tabs that go into the rails of the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # 16085, and found that the height of the legs is 1-1/2 inches and the width of the legs is 2-1/8 inches straight across at its widest point near the mounting brackets. This hitch can handle 25,000 lbs GTW, I also attached installation instructions for this product below for you to check out.

  • Recommendation for Towing Gooseneck Trailer with 5th Wheel Base Rails on 2015 Chevy Silverado
  • To tow a gooseneck trailer using the 5th-wheel base rails on your 2015 Chevy Silverado, I recommend looking at the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16085. As long as you have above-bed, industry standard rails in your truck bed, this Gooseneck Hitch will mount directly to them and allow you to tow your gooseneck trailer. It features a 25,000 pound weight capacity and includes a 2-5/16 inch ball. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product along with the installation...

  • The Reese adapter # RP30154 for the 2014 Rams with the prep package has the 2 wider sets of mounting slots at 20-1/2 and 29 inches on center side to side but not the inner set at 10 inches apart. The Curt Spyder gooseneck plate # 16085 will fit in the 20-1/2 inch slots on the adapter. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. The factory prep package on your 2014 Ram should have come with the hole for a gooseneck ball. If yours does have this, we have found that you can...

  • Troubleshooting Gooseneck Hitch that Won't Lock onto 2-5/16 inch Ball
  • It really sounds like your gooseneck hitch is designed for a 3 inch gooseneck ball. I know you said that you attached to your friends B and W hitch, but B and W offers a 3 inch ball # BWGNXA2025. The 3 inch setup is less common but it is still seen out there. If your trailer is larger it is very possible that you need a 3 inch ball. Which there are no adapters like the Spyder that have 3 inch balls. This would call for the replacement of your coupler or the install of a gooseneck hitch...

  • Recommendation of Gooseneck Adapter Plates or a Gooseneck Hitch for a 2006 GMC Sierra Pickup
  • If you already have the fifth-wheel rails installed in the bed of your truck then I would go with a Gooseneck Plate so that you do not have to install a new under bed mount system and make new holes in the truck bed. Cost will be less if you use a gooseneck plate also, plus there is the added advantage that if you want to tow a fifth-wheel trailer you will be able to use a fifth-wheel hitch without a gooseneck adapter. A gooseneck to fifth-wheel trailer adapter would be another expense...

  • Measuring for a Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Adapter
  • To measure correctly for a Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer Adapter (see link) you will need to have your vehicle and trailer positioned level. If your truck is at a pitch or parked on a grade, and the trailer is level, the measurement will not be correct and the trailer will not be level when towing. Adding extra inches to an adapter, to clear bed rail mounted accessories, will cause the trailer to be towed out of level and will increase stress on the hitch and the towing vehicle along...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a 2014 or 2015 Ram 3500 with Rambox Side Storage
  • Since you plan on towing a fifth wheel trailer, the best option for the truck you are looking at, is an 8 foot bed without the Rambox. The issue with the Rambox is that the manufacturers of the hitches and installation kits have not tested for fit on models with the Rambox. As you mentioned, the bed is narrower which could interfere with the operation of the fifth wheel locking handle. Another issue you will run into is you will need to replace the OEM pin box with a Sidewinder. The reason...

  • What is the Offset of the Gooseneck Ball on Husky 25K Gooseneck Hitch # HT31368 for 5th Wheel Rails
  • The Husky 25K Gooseneck Hitch # HT31368 for 5th Wheel Rails measures 24-inches long x 13-1/4-inches wide and the ball is offset from the center line by 3-inches. The Curt Spyder # 16085 has a centered hitch ball with no offset. We also offer a comparable item from ProSeries, with the same weight ratings as the Husky, but with one additional inch of offset - 4 inches rather than 3 inches. This is Pro Series part # 49080. The base on the ProSeries measures 12-1/4-inches wide x 25-inches...

  • Will Curt Spyder Gooseneck Hitch Fit Reese Adapter for 2014 Ram with OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The Curt Spyder gooseneck trailer hitch # 16085 will fit in the inner set of slots on the Reese adapter # RP30154 for the 2014 Ram with OEM prep package. But it will be much easier, less expensive, and you will not have to use an adapter in another adapter to just use the proper ball to fit the OEM prep package on your Ram. The ball is # RP19311. For a kit that includes the ball, safety chain loops, cap, and storage bag use # RP30140.

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit Recommendations for a 2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • There are a couple of components needed to install a 5th wheel trailer hitch in a truck. Starting with the installation kit, there are 2 types. There is a universal kit and there are custom kits. If a truck has a custom kit option available, as your truck does, I always recommend it over the universal installation kit. The reason is that the custom kits come with brackets specifically designed to fit your truck and this translates to less drilling and about half the installation time over...

  • Where do 5th Wheel Rails Install on a 1997 Chevy K2500
  • The brackets will install onto the frame of your 1997 K2500, to determine exactly where you will need to find the correct location of the rails for the hitch and then install them in relation to where the rails will need to be installed. To determine the location of the rails you will need to measure 30-15/16 inches from the rear of the truck bed to the rear edge of the rear hitch rail if you have an 8 ft bed and 26-3/16 inches if you have a short bed.

  • Can the Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Trailer Hitch be Used with a 5th Wheel Adapter
  • The limiting factor on a 5th wheel trailer to gooseneck adapter is going to be the trailer itself, not the hitch. The Curt Quick Goose, # C640-659, will accept any adapter that is designed to attach to a gooseneck ball (see link). Another option is to install a 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit designed for your truck and then use a gooseneck adapter that fits in the above the bed rails, like # 16085. You would also need a 5th wheel trailer hitch for the 5th wheel trailers you...

  • Is the hitch ball on the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails welded in?
  • Yes, the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails, part # 16908, is solidly welded on. It requires fifth wheel base rails and a bracket kit for mounting (sold separately). I spoke with my contact at Curt Manufacturing and she said the ball cannot be replaced since it would compromise the integrity of the product.

  • 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...

  • Gooseneck Neck Trailer Rides Too High in the Front
  • All of the gooseneck hitches that fit 5th wheel rails are going to be roughly the same height and won't lower the trailer enough to tow it level. But there is an alternative. You may be able to use an over/under conversion kit or otherwise raise the height at the back of the trailer. You can use an over/under conversion kit if: The trailer leaf spring stack is currently mounted under the axles The trailer uses double-eye springs And the trailer has 2-3/8 inch or 3 inch diameter...

  • The Curt Spyder gooseneck hitch # 16085 will fit in Valley, Draw-Tite, Reese, Hidden Hitch, Husky and Curt Fifth Wheel Rails. It has not been tested in any other brand. But you can determine if it will fit by looking at the measurements in the picture I have provided of the standard rails. All of the manufacturers above use the same style and measurement rails. If yours match up then you can use the Spyder.
