Compatibility of Curt A16 Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch with Sidewinder Pin Box Replacement


I was looking at the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs Item # C16520-16020 for my 2016 F 250crew cab sb. I know it will for my truck. My issue is down the road I would like to get a sidewinder pin box for my camper. Will it work with this hitch? I have friends and family I tow for and still need the slider for theirs. I have the puck system in my truck and I don’t want to spend more than a 1000 a hitch. I have the Reese adapter plate now but there is not any more adjustments I can make to level out my camper. Thanks

The Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package # C16520-16020 as you stated is a confirmed fit for your truck. You can tow your friends and family's campers with this hitch allowing you the turning clearance needed. This will also work with a Sidewinder as long as you keep it locked in the front towing location at all times and use the wedge # C16992.

Ideally, you would use the Curt OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch Legs for Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package # C16017 with your A16 hitch head when using your Sidewinder, but it is not required.

You may also want to consider the wiring harness # C56000 to add a second 7-way to the bed of your truck for easy wiring connection access and clean look.
