Video Transcript for Curt Adapter Rails for Curt Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Installation - 2022 Ram 2500

Hi everyone, Aiden here with etrailer. Today we're going to be taking a look at these Curt Adapter Rails on our 2022 Ram 2500. Now that's going to be an adapter piece from the factory puck system if your RAM came with that in the bed and adapt it so you can use your pre-existing Curt Fifth Wheel with Slider Base. So if you already have that from a previous truck and you just mounted it up to your ISR rails, then this is going to be the piece that lets you use it with your new truck that has the prep package for towing. So rather than getting a whole new fifth wheel that's designed to work with that factory puck system, you can use what you already have, drop it into this adapter piece and keep using it as normal. Let's check it out.

So this is going to come with all the pieces and hardware you need to get things up and running. Your slider base is going to drop in to these rectangular slotted holes in each corner. Those are going to look very familiar to those who already have a fifth wheel set up and it's going to be the same size slot as those rails you maybe had before. And then this does come with the pins and clips to secure underneath with the tabs. Of course, you can upgrade to locking pins as well as locking pins here at the corners where this adapter attaches to the bed.

But out of the box, it's going to come with pins and clips and you can upgrade them later on if you decide to. Those quarter turn levers at each corner are going to be how we actually attach this into the factory puck system, where we drop this down in, turn that lever to lock the tab in and keep this from popping back out, keeping it very secure in the vehicle. And then when we're done, that's exactly how we remove it too, leaving nothing behind so you get full unhindered access to your truck bed. Now if you're starting from scratch and you need to build a whole fifth wheel hitch set up from the ground up, no worries, we've got plenty of kits here available at etrailer that you can find to suit your needs based on what kind of weight capacities you need and what features you need. But in all this is designed to work with Curt Sliders.

So whichever option you go with or if you end up piecing together your own kit, just remember that it's designed to work with Curt Sliders not necessarily other brands. And this is designed to work with sliders. So for our truck right here where we don't have a long eight foot bed, that's going to be perfect. That extra clearance from the cab is what we want and this is the piece that can get us there. But that'll do it for our look at these fifth wheel adapter rails from CURT on our 2022 Ram 2500.

Thanks for watching.

2016 Ram 2500

Easiest item I have ever installed on my truck. 4 bolts to set it up then dropped the entire assembly into the Ramming bed puck system. Plan to haul our 5th wheel rv with this. The slider will help if we get into tight area at the rv park. Simly to use. Love it



1 year and this hitch is still awesome


Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch Fifth Wheel Hitch 2018 Ram 2500 This was not easy choice to make as I tend to try top save money. But with my truck and the puck system this has been an excellent purchase. The removable pin let's me pull the top of the hitch off while leaving the rest in the truck. This allows me to store it in front of the adapter rails. Then my roll up bed cover clears the top while the rest is still mounted. Dry, secure out of site out of mind while shopping or parked at RV park overnight. The slider allows the extra clearance to give you peace of mind you will not damage your truck while backing into tight spaces on a serious angle. Then of course the top comes off with that pin making the entire thing lighter to remove when taking the entire assembly out of the truck. IT is manageable but still better to use the tractor bucket or hoist as it is heavy duty. No issues and very happy with this purchase and the continued great service from etrailer! I pulled a 34 ft 5th wheel 1800 miles at average of 75mph. Did not even know the trailer was back there when the wind was not blowing. Thanks again for helping me put this package together and having the lowest price while doing it!


I love the way it sits and fits in my truck. The instructions and installation were very clear and easy to follow and assemble. And there is still room to have my tool box’s and a chain between the 5th wheel and my tailgate. My tank cover fits perfectly over the top and my support bars don’t touch the 5th wheel either.
I am very happy with this 5th wheel.It works just like all the descriptions said it would. It will make pulling our camper a breeze.
I would recommend this hitch very highly. And will be recommending all my friends to this company for all future hitches.

2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

I bought a 5th Wheel camper on May 13th. On the 14 I started shopping for a 5th Wheel Hitch. I landed on etrailer’s site. I found what I wanted in no time. When I went to check out it said I should have the unit it 3 days. Which would be Friday. I needed to pick up my Camper on Monday. I called because I wanted to be sure it would deliver on Friday. They assured me I would have it Friday. I placed my order at 11am and by 3 pm I had an email saying the Hitch had shipped. To my surprise it arrived on Thursday. I’m very mechanically inclined and it took me about 2 hours to put the Hitch in my 2017 Ram 2500 with the in bed puck system. I did have to remove my bed liner which I will put back in at a later date. The installation went pretty smooth. I found it helpful to watch the videos on the installation. I picked up my camper on Monday and drove 100 miles home. So far so good. It’s going on 600 mile journey over the Memorial Day Weekend. I was very impressed with the customer service when I called and the very quick free shipping. Great Job etrailer.

Dodge Ram Pickup

The adapter rails fit the RAM factory puck system perfectly. 2020 2500 tradesman crew cab 4x4
With fifth wheel prep package.



Rails have been in use for about 2 years now and still do the job great. Finish has held up very well considering they spend most of the time out in the elements. Thats saying a lot with Michigan weather. To date, have pulled over 6000 miles with this setup. 11000 lb 35 ft Outback fifth wheel and 2020 ram 2500 tradesman 4x4 crew cab with 6.4


Easy install, did most myself but I needed my wife’s help with the plate mount. Took about an hour for install. Everything arrived in good condition, and all the hardware was accounted for.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great products, excellent price, speedy (3 day) delivery and easy step by step installation instructions for my sliding fifth wheel hitch for my 2016 Ram 2500 short bed truck w/ factory tow prep package. I would highly recommend any of these products as well as the excellent customer service at


The product arrived 1 day earlier than promised. The instructions were decent, they could of been more inclusive of the different setups, the hitch and sliders didn’t reference how to interface with the Ram puck base. The rubber gaskets for the slider base didn’t fit with the Ram base due to their thickness. You need a 100lbs torque wrench(I rented one from Orielys). All the parts were present. The bad may not of been etrailers fault, but the boxes arrived like they were dropped out of an airplane. Amazingly, nothing was damaged.


Purchased and installed adapter rails for my Curt 5th wheel hitch. These adapter rails are rated for 24,000 lbs., and are "beefy". I could not be more pleased with the ease of installation and overall heavy duty construction of these adapter rails.


I purchased a puck kit and 5th wheel. The puck kit, though not as easy to install as some made it out to be came out perfectly. The 5th wheel is a solid product and works as designed.
Shipping has a field day kicking the boxes down the road, but they could not damage the iron.


Exactly what I ordered and works perfect! Here is the A16 Curt attached in the photos. Easy and quick installation into the RAM puck system.

Not a very nice way to receive a $[XX] order plus the Hardware Kit is not here.

Great company, shipper lost part and they made it right ASAP



Hitch has performed flawlessly

Etrailer Expert

@Frederic Awesome, glad to hear that!


Looks great, Easy installation, Good quality.
had a problem with ups losing one part and etrailer sent out another one. All the staff that I spoke with was great.


The product itself is great. The reason for the 3-star rating is that the first shipment came in beat up boxes and without all of the parts (and some of the parts were already put together - can anyone say used?). The Customer Service rep was great and escalated when asked. The manufacturer quickly sent new parts, however, they use UPS who beat the boxes up so badly that the post office returned them before they even got to us. This caused us to miss the pick up date for our camper. After I called again, they sent a new shipment, however, it also didn’t make the rescheduled time for us to pick up our camper so we had to borrow someone’s truck to pick it up. Once the parts finally showed up, the shopping boxes were again beat up and all of the parts were clanking together. Thankfully the parts we needed were usable. etrailer needs to work with the manufacturer on securing the boxes better and should find someone other than UPS to deliver them.

2020 Ram 2500

This slider solves all the problems with towing a fifth wheel with short bed pickups.


Great hitch but even better service and shipping. Thanks for getting this to me in such a short time frame!


Like most customers the box was in really bad shape when it arrived. Everything was still together and not damaged. Received 2 of 3 boxes, contacted customer service since I needed the rail system for the rest of the assembly to mount on and they promised the rails would arrive the next day. I'm trusting they will get here. The Curt fifth wheel slider hitch is built substantially well and is impressive, cannot wait to hook up!



Excellent, using to pull a 18,000 lb. Fifth wheel. Works flawlessly!


Straightforward setup. I’d recommend deep sockets for torquing the bolts down. Solid piece of equipment.



One year later… still going strong. This thing will last the long haul!


Easy to assemble and lined up perfect to the ram factory puck system. I don’t have experience with any other fifth wheel hitch but the only down side I see to this is that the system is extremely heavy.


Great 5th wheel had a year with multiple trips with no problems. Would recommend to anyone.

2015 Ram 3500

Product went on easily and looks great! Didn't even need to use the instructions really. Only complaint I had is with the shipping. It looks like the box was tossed from the truck of the shipper and between all the shipping hubs the box got trashed because of the heaviness of the product. I'd suggest a better means of securing the product in a heavier duty box as any shipping company won't Handle with care. Overall very satisfied!

2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

This mount is a perfect fit for the Ram factory installed "puck" system 5th wheel hitch in-bed mount. It drops right into the factory in-bed holes and locks in with a 1/4 turn of the handles. I coupled this with the Curt Q20 sliding hitch for the short-bed Ram truck, fits and works perfectly. etrailer's pricing was a welcome significant-amount less expensive than other online vendors' sites I researched for the exact same item. The entire assembly with the hitch is heavy, as expected, around 200+lbs. I installed a light-duty (220lb single line/440lb double line) overhead electric hoist in the garage with a kingpin attachment for lifting this out when an empty bed is needed for hauling something other than the RV.


Receiving: Packaging was shot, shredded and falling apart. Parts we're falling out everywhere. Surprisingly all the parts were there.
Installation: Some manhandling was involved, other than that, everything went smoothly for the most part. Also the instructions weren't very clear. Hahaha, like men read instructions! No, but really, the instructions suck. I'm happy with the product.

2013 Ram 3500

Worked great took about 15 min to install happy with product shipped on time and received a day earlier than expected I staled on 2013 dodge Laramie longhorn 3500
