Review of the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter

Today we're going to be reviewing the Curt X5 gooseneck to 5th wheel rails adapter plate, part number C16210. Here's what it looks like once it's installed. It's a nice black carbide finish that's going to protect against rust and corrosion to make it last a long time. This adapter plate is ready for 20,000 pounds of gross trailer weight, and 4,000 pounds of tongue weight. It's a simple pin and clip installation for the 5th wheel hitches that include multiple mounting points to accept either a 5th wheel with legs, or a 5th wheel with a roller. Another nice feature about this adapter is that you can use it with just about anyone's 5th wheel hitches that fit on rails. Where some of the plates require you to use their brand of hitch, just check the weight ratings and make sure they are the same or less.

A great reason to get a plate like this is because you can easily convert your goose neck hitch into a the wheel set up without having to drill any extra holes. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to install it. To begin our installation, I'm going to remove our rubber dust cap. We already have the arm released, so we can slide out our ball and set it aside. Now, we'll take our adapter and slide it into the hole. Next you can release your lever and let your dual pins lock it into place. Now let's show you how easy it is to use.

You simply drop in your 5th wheel, install your pin and clips, put those in place. We are ready to go hook up our trailer and hit the road. Now, that's going to do it for a review of the Curt X5 gooseneck hitch to 5th wheel adapter plate, part number C16210.
