Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit C16303 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take look at the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket for the Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with overload springs. This is designed to fit the 2002 and newer Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with overload springs. This is designed to be used with the Curt universal installation rails, part number C16100 or C16200, which we do sell separately on our website. This will ease the installation of the universal fifth wheel kits on your vehicle. This bracket will help you avoid drilling inside the vehicle's frame on the rear passenger side, so this bracket allows for drilling outside the frame and avoiding the exhaust hanger. That should do it for the review on the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket for the Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with overload springs..

  • Does the Curt Semi-Custom Rail Kit for a Dodge Ram 1500 Work with a B&W 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 will fit your 2008 Dodge Ram pick up and provide you with industry standard rails. As long as the B&W 5th wheel hitch you have attaches to industry standard rails, then yes it will work with the # C16303-200 rails.

  • Tailpipe Bracket Interfering With Installation of 16301 rail kit for 2009 Dodge 3500
    I am sorry that you are having a problem installing the fifth wheel rails on your 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 long bed. I spoke to my contact at Curt and found that some heavy duty dodge pickups have a tailpipe mount located in an alternate position and these vehicles require a fifth wheel bracket that is bent at an angle to avoid this bracket. The Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram 1500 with Overload Springs, item # C16303, is the part that you will need to complete your installation...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Long Bed
    For a set of fifth wheel rails confirmed as a fit for your 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed we have the Reese kit part # RP30035 but the Curt kit you mentioned is not a fit. Check out the install video I attached for more info on it though.

  • Is Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit Compatible with RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500
    Yes, the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 that fits your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 is compatible with your RBW 15K 5th wheel hitch. If you don't already have a 7-Way installed in the bed of your pickup then I also recommend installing the Hopkins # HM42137 to help make connecting and disconnecting the wiring on your 5th wheel much easier.

  • Best Outdoor Car Cover for a 2004 Toyota Camry
    We do have outdoor vehicle covers but the Covercraft Polycotton Cover, part # C16304PD, is only designed for indoor use and won't hold up to the elements. Instead you want a cover designed for outdoor use. The top of the line is the Covercraft WeatherShield HD. It's built to hanlde long-term, outdoor exposure. Holding up to extreme weather. To fit your 2004 Toyota Camry use part # C16304HG if you have a rear spoiler or part # C16303HG without the spoiler. A more economical outdoor...

  • Curt Fifth Wheel Base Rails For 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Short Bed
    To fit the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit # C16100 to your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed, this will require drilling into the frame. Curt recommends to use # C16303 that is included in the kit, which helps you to drill into a specific part of the frame easier. However the Curt Custom Fit Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16420-204 is a direct match for your 2003 Dodge Ram and is guaranteed to fit. This will require no drilling into the frame, as the bolt holes will line...

  • Will 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit # C16303-200 Fit 5th Wheel Hitch for 2004 Dodge Ram
    The Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200, that you referenced, is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Series with 6 Foot Bed. This kit is compatible with Curt fifth wheel hitches including sliders. Since your trailer is only 4000 lbs you will be well under your hitch's weight capacity of 16K. The main difference between the Curt rails you referenced and the Reese rails # RP30035-023, is that the Curt rails are only a fit for the 1500 Series, while...

  • Is Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Needed for Short Bed 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab
    When towing with a short bed truck like your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab, you will need either a sliding 5th wheel hitch or the use of a rotating pin box because otherwise if you make too sharp a turn the trailer will make contact with the cab and can cause a lot of damage. Since rotating pin boxes like Sidewinders are going to be much more expensive, you are better off going with a sliding hitch than the fixed Reese hitch you have. You can offset the cost by selling the Elite hitch...

  • Frame Brackets and Hardware to Install Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2007 Dodge Ram
    If all you're needing is the frame mount bracket and the hardware to attach the bracket to the truck frame and the bracket to the bed rails, the part number for Reese rails would be # RP50040. Keep in mind that it's highly recommended that the frame rails and the bed hitch mounting rails be from the same manufacturer. If Curt manufactured your bed rails, you'd want to go with # C16303. If the rails are from a different manufacturer, let me know and I can make a recommendation for you.

  • Will Curt or Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch fit Non Industry-Standard Base Rails in 2003 Dodge Ram
    The Replacement Rails for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Older Models # DM6014 will give you base rails that are not industry standard, meaning they would not be compatible with a Reese, Curt, or other model of fifth wheel hitch. These hitches mount 22” front to back and either 20-5/8” or 29” wide and will require industry-standard rails in your 2003 Dodge Ram. For example, if you wanted to use the Curt A16 # C16120 fifth wheel hitch you would need to use Fifth Wheel Installation...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch For 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Short Bed
    Yes, you definitely can tow a 1999 Jayco Eagle model 211 with a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 short bed. I recommend going with the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16521 and the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram 1500 - Carbide Finish # C16303-200. You will need a slider because of the box length. If you do not get a sliding hitch or a rotating pinbox you will cause damage to your tow vehicle and or the 5th wheel. You will also...

  • Recommended Custom 5th Wheel Rail Kit For 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 6 Foot Bed
    For your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 6 Foot Bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP50040-58. The Custom install kits have brackets that are specifically designed for your vehicle. They will mount much easier and include everything you need to install. I've attached a video of this installation as well as included the installation detail instructions. The custom install kits are vehicle specific and are far easier...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2005 Dodge Ram with Short Bed
    If your 2005 Dodge Ram with the short bed is a 1500 then you will need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 as opposed to the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit # C16100. For a 2500 or 3500 same year Dodge Ram you need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16301-200 instead. Both kits give you industry standard base rails that are compatible with the wide majority of 5th wheel hitches out there. One other thing you may...

  • Recommended Curt Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2007 Dodge Ram Short Bed
    To tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2007 Dodge Ram with a 6-1/2 foot bed you will need to install base rails in your truck bed in order to mount a Curt sliding hitch. Base rails come with installation kits and there are two different options for an '07 Dodge Ram, depending on the model of your truck; I will list the kits and you can select the right one. Keep in mind these kits come with both the base rails and frame brackets so you do not need to purchase them separately. - 2007 Dodge...
