Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Silver Series 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider. Its part number is HT31326-31196. Now, to operate the slider portion, we'll have that right here, and what we'll do here is lift up on our lever. As we do it, it's going to rotate our locking plate up and out of the way, and then that allows us to slide that back, reengage the lever there. Then, we can lock it in that position for a maneuvering position. Now, this delivers 10" of travel, so that's going to get the front of our camper 10" further away from the rear of our vehicle. It's going to make it nice at the low speeds only when we're trying to maneuver into our parking spaces, maybe camp sites and things like that.



Demco RV Fifth Wheel DM8550043 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Demco Recon Single Jaw 5th Wheel trailer hitch with a 21,000 pound weight capacity. Now this 5th wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your 5th wheel trailer. It uses a nice wraparound single piece jaw that'll provide a secure connection. It gives you 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. That'll give you less rattle, more security, than the slide bar jaws. If you notice in front right up here, there's a 3/4-inch thick solid steel locking bar, which will reinforce the connection of your coupling trailer, and that'll automatically lock into place when the jaw closes. It does use a double pivot hitch head, which will ease hookup, helps limit chucking.




Curt Fifth Wheel C16521 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16521. This is the Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch on the Curt R16 Slider. This hitch is a dual jaw design. Has a 16,000 lb weight capacity. For demonstration purposes I do already have this mounted on the base rails and the mounting brackets just to give you an idea what this would be like installed in your truck bed. The base rails and the brackets would be sold separately.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16621 Review

Today, we are going to review part number C16621. This is the CURT Q16 Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitch with the R16 slider, the base rails and the installation kit all included and this has a sixteen thousand pound weight capacity. Now, this heavy duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has the dual jaw, has a nice pivoting head and on the very back here it uses a color-coded lock indicator to give you superb safety and security. Now, the two jaw locking system right here provides a three-hundred and sixty degree jaw-to-king pin contact and because of that, it'll give you less rattle, more security than a lot of the Slide-Moore models. This has a self-aligning wide head opening right here you can see for a nice simple hook-up. The way they do that is they use a fully articulating torsion head which gives you controlled coupling and a nice stable, quiet ride. Now, there is two lube points, which for easy access, grease Zerk fittings and they are located on the front of each jaw.

  • Can A Fifth Wheel Trailer Be Used with a Ford F-150 Supercrew 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate if you would...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package and Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Since the trailer comes with the Reese Revolution pin box you will need a fixed hitch, not a slider, and a custom wedge to match the hitch. The wedge prevents the trailer from turning at the hitch so that it turns 22 inches further back allowing you to make tight turns without needing a slider. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package on Ford trucks including your 2017 F-350 I recommend the Reese Elite hitch # RP30142. And for a custom wedge use # SWW-01.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with RamBox and 6-Foot Bed
  • A short bed truck by itself can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited front-to-back clearance between the truck cab and the trailer's overhang. When we add the Rambox feature we also add another complication: reduced side-to-side clearance. Hitch makers like Reese, Curt and B&W discourage use of 5th wheels in such trucks; that said, there are those that have satisfactorily installed 5th wheels anyway. The best solution for the turning clearance problem in such trucks...

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch
  • You have two options for installing the RBW Lil Rocker in your 2007 Ford F-150 pickup. You can use the Universal Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit with Rails, item # RP30035, or the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Brackets - Ford F-150, item # RP50081-58 that you referenced. I would recommend you use the Custom Brackets # RP50081-58, these will install in about half the time of the universal rails and will minimize the drilling into your 2007 Ford F-150. I have...

To get the above bed rails for the 2017 model without factory rail kit, you will use the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Carbide Finish, # C16445-204.

  • Are Replacement Parts Available For the RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Replacement parts for the RBW Lil Rocker are no longer available. RBW Industries, the manufacturer of the Lil Rocker, was acquired by AL-KO Kober Corp and the fifth wheel lines were discontinued. You may be able to find replacement parts on private ad sites or auction sites, but new replacement parts are not available. If you would consider a new fifth wheel hitch, we have several options that you may be interested in. An economical hitch that has a similar design to the Lil Rocker...

  • Will Installed Air Bags Interfere With Installation Of Fifth Wheel On 2001 Ford F-250 Or F-350
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone about your 2001 Ford F-250 or F-350. Since we have a couple of air bag systems manufactured by Firestone I asked if there would be any interference when installing a fifth-wheel hitch and using the custom brackets like part # RP50082-58. My contact at Firestone said that if you have an air bag system like the # F2550 installed on your truck, they would not interfere with a fifth wheel installation because the brackets for the air bag system are installed...

  • Is there a Standard Hitch Ball Size for Gooseneck Hitches
  • Most 25K or 30K gooseneck hitches come with a standard 2-5/16" hitch ball. If you were to get a Hide-a-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch from Draw-Tite # 9460-48, you would have the option to get a different sized ball. This hitch comes with a 2-5/16 sized ball but you could also purchase a Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 19307. This ball has a 3 inch diameter.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 3500 Crew Cab with 6-1/2 foot bed
  • I checked with Reese and you are correct, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit # RP56001-53 that you referenced is the correct install kit for your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed. I attached an install video for you to check out also. Since you have a short bed truck you will need a slider hitch, for that I would recommend the Reese R16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30869. This hitch has a round tube slider that will operate smoother than...

  • Gooseneck Ball for a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Factory Prep Package
  • There are a couple of ball kit options that fit the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package on your 2016 Ram 3500. I recommend the Curt kit, # C60618, which is the ball, safety chain tie downs, and a cover for the ball hole when the ball is not being used. (None of balls the fit the OEM system will hide in the ball cavity like the Turnover ball hitches from B&W.) You can also use the Reese kit # RP30140 which also includes the tie downs and cover but also includes a storage bag....

  • Differences between Curt Q20 Slider Hitch and Reese R16 Slider Hitch
  • To address your concern about the compatibility of the Reese R16 Slider Hitch, # RP30869, with the Curt Custom Rail Kit, # C16448-204, they are compatible with each other. The above bed base rails that are used with the Curt Custom kits are the industry standard above bed rails that are used by Reese and other fifth wheel hitch manufacturers. The custom aspect of the Curt rail kit is the brackets. There is no drilling (into the frame) required to install the custom brackets and they...

  • Can Fifth Wheel Bed Rails Be Removed When Hitch is Not Being Used
  • When the Reese 5th wheel hitch is removed from the bed rails, the rails will remain in the truck bed. Once the rails are installed by bolting them through the bed to the frame brackets and tightened to their specified torque, they need to remain in place. Removing the bed rails repeatedly would cause undue stress on the mounting hardware thus weakening it, which is why the hardware is rated for a one-time use only. Using the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part...

  • Can Air Lift or Firestone Air Bags be Installed with Reese Under Bed Kit on a 2016 Ford F-250
  • The frame brackets for Reese under bed installation kit # RP30126 mount to the outboard sides of the frame rails on your 2016 Ford F-250. This means that any air bag kit that mounts on the inboard sides of the frame rails will work with the under bed kit. So for Air Lift, if your truck is a 4x4 use # AL88396. And if it is 2-wheel drive use # AL88395. And for Firestone you can use # F2535 for 4- or 2-wheel drive models. This kit was specifically designed for diesel models. I have...

  • Differences Between Reese and Curt Fifth Wheel Rails for a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • For a set of fifth wheel rails confirmed to fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD it's hard to beat the price of the Curt rails part # C16418-204 that you referenced. Curt says these will take 4 hours to install and the more expensive Reese part # RP50064-58 would take 4 hours to install. Realistically they both would take about the same time as they are pretty similar. The easiest kit to install would be the Reese Outboard rails part # RP56007-53 which are the most expensive but they...

  • Are Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs Compatible with the 5th Wheel Install Kit # RP50082-58

If you have the system that mounts on the outside of the frame rail, like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Rear Kit, item # F2071, a fifth-wheel installation kit will not work. If you have the air spring system that mounts on the inside of the frame rail, like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Rear Kit, item # F2398, will work with the # RP50082-58 installation kit.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • There is a fifth wheel rail that just got released as a fit for all models of the 2016 Ram 1500. It is the part # RP50142-58. I have a solution for you, but the Pullrite Superglide isn't going to work for you though as your truck bed is too short for a standard slider hitch to give enough clearance. The solution I have for you that is very similar though. The Demco Hijacker part # DM8550040 is an auto-slide hitch like the SuperGlide except it provides 22-1/2 inches of sliding clearance....

  • Best Way to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with 2014 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • For towing fifth wheel trailers with a truck that has a bed length of 5-1/2 feet the best option is the Sidewinder pin box. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once...
