E16 5th Wheel Jaw

Simple, Secure Hookup

With a dual-pivoting head that offers 10 degrees of lateral movement, the E16 fifth-wheel hitch makes hookup a snap, even on unlevel ground. Once the king pin slides into the hitch, the auto-locking, slide-bar jaw secures it in place. A unique feature of the E16 is the rear steel tension bar within the jaw that activates upon hookup to clamp down on the king pin, providing a tighter grip that maximizes security and minimizes rattle.

After ordering rails for a fifth wheel that I had in an older truck, I was told the rails I ordered would work with my fifth wheel, however after installing the front rail, the fifth wheel would not work with the rails ordered. I ended up ordering a new fifth wheel plate. That was easier than removing the frame brackets I had already installed. It appears that there was a mis communication between the person I talked to with etrailer. Instead of a 1/2 day install it took a day and a half plus wait time for the fifth wheel to get to my address. However once installed it appears to be good.


The hitch worked great. Reason for the 2 stars is the package got delayed twice in transit and I had to reschedule the pickup of my fifth wheel. When I also received the package the main crossmember bar was bent at the mounting point. Luckily I was able to bend it back but UPS needs to get there act together.


Great price and works really well with the camper im pulling with no issues what so ever even sits low enough to have my bed cover on without removing any parts of the hitch


Great hitch, very impressed with shipping and communication with etrailer.



I have hauled a 34 foot toyhauler hundreds of miles with this hitch,very happy and would suggest it to anyone.


The hitch looks great as shipped from etrailer. The problem was UPS destroyed the package and hitch. I have just started the claims process through UPS. I have always had great success with everything coming from etrailer until now. It was obvious the box had been dropped numerous times. It had been retapped a few times trying to hold it together. The steel crossmember was bent in two directions. It cannot be used which makes this hitch worthless. I see no fault with etrailer (except I recommend putting the cardboard package inside a heavier box to help UPS prevent damage). This package is around ninety pounds shipping in a thin cardboard box. I will be ordering a new hitch from etrailer and hoping for a better shipping experience. I have to postpone my vacation due to not having a working hitch.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


Well packed, free 5 days shipping, easy to assemble and nice looking hitch. Im extra amazed because i can remove the king pin base/head from the bridge leg assembly to easily transport them. Still not tested with the coach. Practically no lateral movement and have the suspicion bushings. Very firm and easy mechanisms. Do not leave the gate open for long term because could damage the main spring. I plan to pull a 11k 334FWFLS. Nothing compared to this hitch in this price range. I will add some extra feedback after couple travels.



More than 1000 miles pulling a 38 fifth wheel and still like new

A little disappointing. The fit was good, and installation easy. But it was missing one of the critical long carriage bolts and spacer.
I didn't have time to send it back, so I had to fabricated a solution since I pick my new camper up in a few days.
Missing hardware definitely added to installation time.


The hitch arrived very fast, and was boxed well. It doesn't come assembled in order to reduce the shipping size, but it's super easy to assemble. Just four 1/2" bolts attach the legs to the main crossmember, and one small 3/16" bolt attaches the lever release arm. In all, it only took about 15 minutes to assemble and set in the truck. It even comes with the hitch pins needed to install on your rails. The only thing you'll need that's not included is about 4 to 8, 1/2" washers. Very happy with the hitch, and always look to for my replacement hauling/trailer parts!


Haven't had a chance to use the hitch yet but I got it installed without too much trouble. It took about 4 hours to install, the frame mounting brackets and rails, at a leisurely pace. The unit seems to be very sturdy and it is certainly built heavy. I'm looking forward to testing it out soon.


I bought the curt fifth wheel and base to convert my B&W turnover ball and this thing fits perfectly it went together smoothly and in under an hour easily highly reccomend


Easy installation. Fast shipping


Used this 3 times and didn’t like the clunking. Should have expected the clunking with a slide bar type hitch. Purchased a Demco Recon which I like very much


Its a great product and with the rail kit it makes an awesome beast for towing. It has provided great service and satisfaction so far.


The customer service with etrailer was awful. Thier system showed an incorrect part for my vehicle and they admitted that but between the shipping mess back and forth. I would of liked a discount or a faster shipment on the correct parts that were already opened and missing hardware. Never again. Good thing its only a fifth wheel assembly and doesnt require quality hardware.


excellent customer service!!!! will deal with Alex again if more trailer/hitch parts are needed. Happy Hoildays to all


E-trailer made the order process very easy, and the shipping was much faster than I expected. The boxes arrived in fairly good condition, but the hitch arms were scratched up due to poor internal packaging. Since the hitch was packed in an E-Trailer box, I assume they repackaged this product.
Otherwise, the Curt hitch and custom rails seem to be very good products for the money!

The E16 hitch is adequate. I get a lot of clunking when starting and stopping due to the straight locking bar style hitch. I wish now that I would have spent more money and got a hitch that had locking jaws that clamped around the pin.


Product made it with no missing parts. etrailer "pallet wrapped" the 93 lb. 5th wheel hitch. Outer box still sustained damage, but maintained the inner box. etrailer succeeded where two other venders failed to deliver intact packages.
etrailer has a new, repeating customer.

The hitch release handle is quite sticky. I have used silicone spray and last week applied some grease. Doesnt want to close all the way and needs to be coaxed into total closure.


I am very pleased with my purchase from etrailer. I bought a fifth wheel hitch to haul my fifth wheel trailer and have had no problems with the installation or using it and have had it one year. I would recommend this purchase to anyone who needs a quality fifth wheel at an economy price.

We had our other truck stolen with the 5 th wheel hitch and many other possessions in it. This company shipped us another hitch quickly for our new truck and other needed equipment we needed to get back on the road. Thank you


It is just what I wanted, coming from the world of big trucks, I wanted a hitch that auto snaps closed, it does just that, it mounted right in my old Reese plate system on 22” center, so far I am very happy not only with the hitch, but also the price and the customer service from
E trailer, thanks for the support . Chris S.



I still love it less work for me, you back in it locks your done, and unlock is easy pull the handle never sticks love it!!!


The Product was nice and worth the money, the packaging for shipping was really poor. The shipping was very fast but when we received it, one part was damaged with dents and scratches. We are very unsatisfied with that. We paid 400 for a hitch that is damaged and will rust. The parts in the hitch box were not wrapped for protection. Also, instead of putting it in a box that fit, they staples a million staples to make a box around the factory box. It was very unprofessional.

Pretty upset for the money we spent.


Excellent value


First the bolts were a little short. But they quickly sent longer ones. Slightly tight fitting in bed rails. Used it once got more tight. After the second time had to use two by four to pop it out.. After a couple more tines of use it won’t budge at all. I think the hitch is spreading out. Wouldn’t have taken much to beef it up with some kid of support going across near the bottom. Not as much side to side tip of the 5th wheel plate as advertised. Get much more than 1 1/2” you have to put block under the truck wheels to get unhooked. A little forward and backward movement of 5th wheel pin but not bad. Other wise it works good.


This hitch was very easy to put on. We use it to pull our camper several times last summer. We have not had any problems hooking or unhooking from the hitch. Looking forward to another season camping. Thanks etrailer

Still working great. We used it alot last summer and plan on putting it to good use this summer.


Great product just missing important pins that hold it together. The team is quick to respond and I’m waiting on those pins now. Definitely recommend to anyone needing an affordable and quality fifth wheel. My 2017 Ram 1500 wasn’t hard to install except the removal of the gas tank.
