Video Transcript for Review of Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - C16204

Today we're gonna take a look at the Curt Universal Carbide Black Finish Fifth Wheel Base Rails. Now these base rails provide the necessary attachment points for your fifth wheel hitch installation. Now these rails will require fifth wheel installation brackets that'll install to your vehicle's frame rails, and then these base rails will bolt to those brackets. Now those installation brackets are sold separately on our website, but I would recommend for your ,application is go to the website, put in your year into our fit guide and then put in the year and model vehicle and it'll show you which installation brackets you need to install these base rails to your vehicle.These base rails are a carbide black finish, sort of like a matte black finish. Matches the finish on the Curt Q5 20,000 pound fifth wheel hitch. This part does include the two base rails, and as I mentioned the brackets, the hardware, the installation is all sold separately.

Now these base rails will be compatible with standard fifth wheel hitches by Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Titch, Reese, Valley, and Husky.And last thing, I just want to give you the length on these rails. Overall length is going to be right at 43 inches.But that should do it for the review on the Curt Universal Carbide Black Finish Fifth Wheel Base Rails.

When used with Curt's custom brackets, these rails will cut in half the time it takes to install your fifth wheel trailer hitch. They also function as replacement rails for your existing towing system.


Fit and finish is very good. The rails have worked as described with out Anderson Ultimate hitch pulling around our 14,000 lb. 5th wheel.


I ordered the rails and brackets kit with included hardware for a Curt slider hitch. The order arrived 3 days later in perfect shape and the quality of the parts is 1st rate...heavy. Price was better than other stores. I'm happy.

The hitch and mounting brackets work great except the slide is really hard to move with the 5er hooked up. Its very hard to pull the handle for the slide.

We bought a Curt slider hitch 16516 and base rails with bracket kit. Everything was very well constructed. We were very impressed with the product. We installed everything ourselves after watching the video. We highly recommend watching the video. Everything went together without any problems. Very solid hitch.


Very precise instructions. A breeze to install...


Perfect, they lined up with the holes in the deck and with my curt gooseneck


Good quality 5th wheel hitch ordered. Lucked out getting it on sale. Shipped on time. Arrived in perfect condition. Self install. Highly recommend Etrailer!


Truck had holes and frame brackets for rails already from previous owner. Why they would remove rails I dunno, but I ordered up the Curt universal rails only and they bolted right up to existing holes and hardware. Cheap way to go!


This company is always great to go to when you need something at a reasonable price usually delivered before they say it is coming great customer service and the parts are quality


Perfect fit


The best customer service! Very polite and helpful.


Very helpful!!!!


This was the easiest product I have ever ordered online. Delivered as promised.


The description wasn’t detailed. We had to drill larger holes in it. We would have sent it back but we had to get on the road for work.


Excellent customer service. Super fast handling and delivery. Karen C. did a great job of correcting a mistake that I made. I will use E-trailer again...Thank you..


The product was awesome fit perfect the people at etailer keep me informed on my order I was very pleased would highly recommend etrailer.
Thanks to all!!


Exactly what I expected from etrailer! Delivered earlier than scheduled. Great fit to my truck and existing equipment.


The product seems to be well-made everything fits perfectly he trailer was very fast and they’re shipping


all parts fit properly and are well made.because of tight clearances very hard to properly tighten rail bolts between frame and bed.4hr. install with two experienced techs. if on a lift would be less time.


Your web site has lots of good information and makes ordering very easy. Products arrived ahead of time and were boxed for shipment very well. Will be using you in the future!
