Review of the Curt X5 Fifth Wheel Adapter

Today were going to be taking a look at the Curt X5 Fifth Wheel Adapter for B and W Square Shank Turnover Ball Hitches, part number 16310. To begin our review, well place in and remove the gooseneck ball from the bottom of our pickup truck. To do this, well first need to pull out the black lever here on the driver side of the wheel rail. The adapter also has this soft leather pads in the bottom of the brackets to protect the track plates finish and also to create a soft surface to resist any audio brazing stuff while traveling down the road. Now with the adapter being as heavy as it is, I do recommend using a second set of hands to put it in place. Now, well go over back to the driver side of the wheel rail and reengage the pin.Now, the adapter is installed into the bed of our truck, were going to go some important measurements for you.

From the closest two points here, from center to center is about 10 inches. Then from center to center from these two points is about 20-3/4. From center to center to these two points is about 29-1/8 inches. Next important measurement, we will do the spacing from this part of the adapter to this part of the adapter, from center to center it will be about 22 inches. Now, these measurements are pretty important when choosing your fifth wheel hitch to go on top of your adapter.

This Curt adapter works with the variety of hitches from Reese, Curt and also Husky.Now that weve gone over the quick and simple installation of the adapter and also gone on some key measurements, well go ahead and show you how it works with a Curt hitch installed on to the adapter. Now for todays demonstration, well be using the Curt hitch, part number C16245.
