Weight of 5th Wheel Hitches Not Including the Packing/Shipping Materials


You have a very nice Web sight,but you leave out one important piece of info on your Fifth Wheel hitches..The total WEIGHT of the hitch..I have a lifting weight restriction and I need to know the weights of your hitches..Why isnt it listed on the wright up of the hitch ???Thanks


Helpful Expert Reply:

We do not list a net weight in the specs for every single item we ship but we do indicate a shipping weight for all products. This shipping weight will appear on each individual hitch page, below the price field. For instance, the linked page displays all sliding 5th wheel hitches that are suitable for your 2013 Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed.

The first hitch listed, the Curt Q20 # C16536, has a shipping weight of 248-lbs without the base rail installation kit # C16411-204 which itself has a shipping weight of 63-lbs. The head unit portion of the hitch by itself, part # C16530, has a shipping weight of 108-lbs. So if you were to break the hitch down before installation you would not have to lift its entire weight all at once.

Typically the weight of the packaging for a 5th wheel hitch will be about 5 to 6-lbs; the weight of the packaging for an installation rail kit will be 3 to 4-lbs.
