Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Struggle to see if your king pin is fully latched - color-coded system makes it easy to see from your cab
  • Go down washboard roads to get to your favorite campgrounds and need a little extra shock absorption to keep from feeling every bump

No, if you:

  • Navigate around tight corners often enough that getting out to operate the slider every time you need clearance gets to be a pain
  • Don't have the patience to perfectly level out your trailer when unhooking - the cushioned head can cause the jaws to bind up
Heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has interlocking jaws and a color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. Torsion head offers easy hookup and quiet, stable towing.

Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A16 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.

Three-Point Indicator System

A16 Color Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator - either the one on the handle or the one on the hitch itself - to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green).

Curt rebranded this fifth-wheel trailer hitch by changing its name from Q16 to A16 in 2016. All features and specifications remained the same.

Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs - C16520-16017

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (484 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has interlocking jaws and a color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. Torsion head offers easy hookup and quiet, stable towing. Legs mount to Ford OEM underbed platform.


Good thing that put the Curt A16 box in a larger box for shipping. The outer box took a beating, but the inner box was barely harmed. Curt should have put padding between the two Ford OIM legs, they scratched each other a bit. The unit installed as per directions, and it looks great. Can't wait for our custom ordered RV to arrive. Thanks to for excellent review videos, and reading the FAQs helped me make my final decision as to which hitch to go with.


I've had this hitch for a year now and used it 5 times so far to pull my 38' RV. Works great and easy to get in and out of my truck bed.

2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Always very pleased with etrailer sales and service. Ordered on a Monday and had the hitch on Thursday. As for the hitch, Super easy setup with my Ford puck system. Had it installed, setup and hitched up in about 45 minutes. The format is perfect as I can now pop it out of my bed easily between trips. It's small so I still have a lot of room in the bed when towing. Very pleased.

Great. Still very happy with it. Very easy to remove from the truck bed when I need to. Can handle it by myself.

2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty

5th wheel hitch arrived intact (no damage).
in 2 days, I'm impressed.

Great job as usual, can always depend on etrailer.

Great basic 5th wheel hitch, works great. The 2 part system makes installing and removing the hitch very manageable for an old dude. It is holding up well.
David C - 01/17/2021


So far the hitch works great. I like the fact Of the color code when its hitched.


"BEWARE"I read many reviews on this hitch, all but one were very good. The one negative review stated that his problem with a noisy hitch was quickly resolved with a replacement. My experience has not been good, I too had a noisy hitch, contacted Etrailer and they sent a replacement. Second hitch was just as noisy. Contacted Curt directly and am told this slop in hitch is by design! Their fix is to disconnect the factory brake controls and install theirs. Why was I not informed before purchase that this hitch bangs around unless you purchase an aftermarket control. It is very unnerving to know that your king pin is extremely loose within the hitch, banging back and forth on acceleration and stopping.

2016 Ford F-250-Super-Duty

Let me say this: I have pulled and used a fifth wheel for over 20 years
This Curt 16 is superior to all.
Easy hook up, secure loading.
It tells you when you are ready to load, loaded and lock the pin
and how to uncouple with ease.
It came with Ford legs and with works so good in my factory equipped
Hitch in the bed.
Great looking and compact.
Excellent way to go.
Very pleased and Thank You for suggesting the hitch.


The Curt A16 arrived a little bruised but intact. I was missing washers, but again, not a big deal. The hitch was easy to assemble by myself, taking a leisurely 45 minutes. It seems well constructed so all in all I’ll give it 4 stars.
Lisa D at etrailer however gets 5 stars for guiding me through the purchase experience!


Great 5th wheel hitch easy to install with the Ford puck system...Double jaws work great and very quiet and hooks up solid no chucking.

Curt makes a great quality hitch doesnt chuck much d ok es a good job easy to install OEM Legs.
Larry - 08/30/2020


I really like the hitch especially the position gage makes it a no brainer when hooking up.
I do wonder if I should have got the slider to make backing up easier with the hitch point closer to the rear of the truck making it more like backing up a trailer?
This year we will have a lot more backing up and I will see if I feel the same way about it.
I use a chain fall to put it in and out with ease.

2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Haven't used the hitch yet, but after assembly and installation, it appears solid and well made. The custom leg assembly (for Ford factory hitch prep) and the hitch proper come with separate instructions, which causes some confusion. The legs are attached to the hitch using four 19mm bolts with nuts (provided). The instructions call for lock washers and flat washers for all four bolts (shown in parts list) which were NOT provided in the pack-up. A trip to the hardware store to get the critical missing parts was required. Bottom line for manufacturer: Include all the specified hardware with the product!

2011 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Very seldom do you have a company that works with their customer the way etrailer does, I contacted them to make sure that i would order the correct 5th wheel hitch for my 2011 ford 250 supper duty. They helped me through the process based on the information I gave them and ordered product. I purchased my truck used and it had a slide in bed liner, i removed the liner to prep for installing the hitch only to discover my vehicle has a factory installed hitch rail in it. I contacted etrailer some 5 hours after my order to change the type of hitch that would fit and was very surprised by how understanding they were.
I recieved my hitch a day and a half later by ups and am very pleased with the timely manner in which this purchase was handed.
THANK YOU etrailer.

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Highly satisfied with my purchase from Excellent performing hitch. Easy to remove from the Ford factory installed mount and far less expensive than the one Ford sells.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Just received the hitch the other day. Delivery was quick. Starting to put it together, I agree with some other reviews that the instructions could be a little clearer, but I will make it. Other than that, it will be a bit before our truck comes in and we can install the hitch.


It fits the 4 pucks on my f450. It is easy on and off. If you have bobcat its a snap.

2011 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Great hitch! Arrived very quickly.(4 days) Went together easily and already in the truck. Haven't towed anything yet but looking forward to it.

Still working great after a year. I transport rvs for a living and am very happy with this purchase.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Upgraded from TT to fifth wheel. Once I learned the basic operation I have had mo problems with this hitch. Rides a little high because of adapter for factory puck adaptor but still fits my tonneau cover which I also bought from etrailer.

I see you also purchased the Reese OEM adapter, part # RP30154
Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs
. When using this adapter, the adapter will add 2 inches to the height of your fifth wheel hitch.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I purchased both the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs - C16120, and Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - Qty 4 - RP58093 for my F350 SD 4X4 Crew Cab Long Bed. I'm pulling a 30' Retro 5th. Wheel and at times I pull my tandem axle UTV Trailer (Double Trailers) . I already had the rails installed in my truck, this fit right in and I used the new Pins and Lock Plates for securing to truck. I have pulled all over from South Dakota and the Northwest. The Hitch has performed Flawlessly. No bucking, nor clunking. Very quiet and smooth ride. I would recommend this set up to anyone for convenience of Hook up and Disconnect, Excellent towing, quiet, and the security of the lock pins. I use Disc locks to prevent access for bolt cutters.

Excellent! Still working as it did on day one. Very solid, easy to use, and the unit is very quiet. Also no chucking. I highly recommend this product to anybody. We now have 2020 Cameo 12,000# unloaded weight. Pulls perfectly.

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I Love this item. I "thought" I rec'd the wrong item because I didn't see C16668 on any of the 3 boxes. Instead, I saw 16560. C16668 must be the complete assy. Nonetheless, I just finished installing it in my 2018 GMC Denali 2500HD Duramax. It IS heavy (258 lbs assembled), and it's made extremely well. Can't wait to haul my new 5th wheel once it gets built!!! Thank you!

Review from a similar A16 5th Wheel Hitch in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Got the trailer hitch installed and am looking forward to trying it out this coming spring. What's nice about this Curt hitch is that it fits under the tonneau cover. E-trailer is a good company to work with! Very courteous people! Thank you!

Its been a year since purchasing this hitch and all I can say is that it is great to not have any jerking motion on rough roads. Plus, it breaks down easily into lighter pieces to remove it from the bed of the pickup.

  • Will Fixed Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16520-16017 Fit 2019 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    Yes, the Curt A16 5th 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16520-16017 that you referenced will fit perfectly and drop right into the factory pucks on the 6-3/4 foot bed of your 2019 Ford F-250. When going through our vehicle fit guide we do just show the sliding hitches for the short bed and the fixed units for the long beds, but the actual puck configurations between the two models do not differ. You are definitely right that many customers use fixed hitches like this with their short bed trucks...

  • Best Value Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 with OEM Rail Kit
    The lowest priced fifth wheel hitch we offer that fits the OEM rail kit of your 2017 Ford F-350 is the Curt E16 part # C16515-16017. Now as far as value goes the best option is the Curt A16 part # C16520-16017 by far. It's a little more expensive than the E16 but the jaw design is far superior. The ride quality will be much quieter since the king pin will be held tighter and the hitch will be easier to use as well.

  • Does 2019 Ford F-250 Short Bed Require Slider Hitch to Make Tight Turns
    For short bed trucks like your 2019 Ford F-250 with the OEM rail kit typically a slider hitch is needed to make sharp turns like the # C16520-16020 unless the trailer has a tapered nose designed for short bed turning clearance which is common on newer trailers. For a fixed version of this we have the # C16520-16017.

    We have some hitches that will fit right into the factory prep package in your 2016 Ford F-350! Since the trailer weighs 18,000 pounds I recommend going with either the 20K Curt Q20, # C16530-16017, or the 24K Curt Q24, # C16545-16017. If you plan to upgrade trailers in the future I would go with the 24K model because you never know what you might need to tow. I have linked video reviews of these hitches for you.

    For your 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty, I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitch with Ford OEM Legs, # C16520-16017. The Curt hitch is rated up to 16,000 lbs of gross towing weight and 4,000 lbs of vertical weight. The Curt A16 uses a locking dual jack system that will provide 360-degree of contact between the jaw and the trailer's king pin.
