It is tested in accordance with SAE J2638 for safety and includes a limited lifetime warranty to make this the best hitch ever to be mounted in the back of your pickup. This A16™ 5th wheel hitch comes with a set of industry-standard 5th wheel legs that are ready to mount into your truck bed with a pair 5th wheel rails and brackets (base rails and brackets sold separately).
I really like this hitch. I had to rethink a couple of things when thinking how I use to work my old Curt 16K hitch with the bar vs the jaws. The hitch plate does not drop down like my old one so I now make sure I'm riding up the plate. Also, use to the old bar - if the bar is across it's locked, open, your good to pull away. On this one I made sure wheels are chucked and pull away even though the jaws are closed with "red" signal. Quit riding now. Also, support was great. I always got through and never had to wait hardy at all and I called a few times. They were very helpful and patient. So product support is great!
I purchased new and had a local dealer install the A16 in my f-250 for new 8500 lb 5th wheel. First few trips the hitch worked perfectly and was solid, but began making popping noise and seemed to be loose on the pin. Installing dealer inspected the hitch and trailer and suggested that I increase the trailer brake gain. Helped a little, but still makes the popping noise and seems loose. bought a new Ram and had the hitch installed with same result. I have been trying different brake settings, but still have the loose fit on new trailer, truck and hitch. Installing dealer says its per normal...
Purchased a new 5th wheel and had this hitch installed per RV shop recommendation. Have logged 6k+ miles over the last year, and very impressed with this hitch. Very sturdy, reliable and easy to use. Highly recommend for anyone considering a 5th wheel. Great product.....
Bought the Q16 hitch to replace my slam bar RBW Lil Rocker on my 95 Chevy. Assembled the hitch and tried to install using my standard rails. Oh! oh! my rails only had 4 slots and I needed a 6 slot rail since the legs are much wider than my Lil Rocker. Ordered Curt rails with the 6 slots and installed. Noted about a 1/4 inch slop between the hitch leg and rail. Called tech and advised needed neopreme shims between leg and rail. Supposedly came with hitch , but I didn't see any and the box is gone. Instruction don't mention them. Order the shims, but thinking about making metal ones. Don't like the hitch rocking in this area. Lil Rocker was tight and solid on the rails, no slop. New hitch looks great, but needs adjustment.
