The CURT E16 5th wheel trailer hitch is an economical choice that offers many of the same features found in our Q-Series 5th wheel hitches. The E16 has a gross trailer weight rating of 16,000 lbs. and can withstand a vertical load up to 4,000 lbs. It comes with a dual-pivoting head, 10 degrees of lateral movement and an anti-rattle skid plate to provide a smoother, quieter ride. The E16 also comes with easy, single-handle operation and a durable carbide powder coat for long-lasting protection against the elements. With four height adjustment settings, the E16 is quick and simple to install, and it is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. This 16K 5th wheel hitch head comes attached to the CURT R16 roller. Our 5th wheel rollers mount easily onto a set of 5th wheel rails or a gooseneck adapter already installed in the bed of your pickup truck. CURT 5th wheel rollers feature solid construction and offer a sturdy mounting place for your 5th wheel hitch, ensuring that none of its towing strength is lost. CURT 5th wheel rollers are also true rolling units, meaning they actually roll on wheels that bear the weight of the trailer rather than simply sliding on hollow rods as seen in competitive models. With a thick operating handle, the roller smoothly rolls the 5th wheel head forward and back, locking securely into each position as desired. CURT rollers also provide up to 12″ of displacement as well, unlike the more common 10″, to give you a wide range of motion and plenty of space to get your RV or other 5th wheel trailer around any turn.

I really like my CURT 16516 5th wheel hitch. I really like our CURT 16516 E16 5th Wheel Hitch. I have a 78 inch bed so I haven’t had to use the slide roller part. The trailer hooks up easily. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for the fifth wheel brackets. The CURT 16400 Custom 5th Wheel Brackets themselves are great. The problem I had were the mounting bolts. The bolts that go through the bed and frame are flat head. They must be wrenched from the bottom. On the passenger side, the fuel tank is too close to frame to get any…

Super sliding fifth wheel Used on a short bed 6.5ft chevy ext cab pu. With fifth wheel lock in driving position strong, tight and quiet. If you have to jack in tight situation this unit will slide effortlessly with pull of handle and lock. Very easy to assemble, does not come with bed rail and mounting hardware. A lot of work to mount rails to truck bed and frame. Highly recommend and would buy Curt products thru Amazon again. Shipping fast and well packaged.

Decent with a few issues Pretty good quality. Easy to use and overall construction is heavy duty. I gave 4 stars because of a couple things. One is the locking latch isn’t a claw type like others so it leaves for some movement of the kingpin on the trailer resulting in noise when stopping or accelerating. Two was that beings how it is a sliding hitch the weight of the trailer hooked to it results in the lower mounting plates to bend. Nothing that would result in failure but it’s still disconcerning after spending $500+…
