What is a Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2016 Ram 2500?


What # would I need if I would get hitch without sidewinder on 2016 Ram 2500?


Expert Reply:

For your 2016 Ram 2500 with a six-foot bed, I recommend going with the Curt Q20 sliding hitch, # C16536. This fifth-wheel hitch has a 2-Jaw locking system, a non-binding slider, and 3-Point color-coded indicator system. Yellow means the hitch is ready to couple, green means the hitch is ready to tow, and red means the hitch is ready to uncouple.

The Q20's height can adjust between 17-1/2 inches and 21-1/2 inches, has a vertical load limit of 5,000 lbs and a gross towing weight of 20,000 lbs. To install this hitch in your 2016 Ram, you will need to use the Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, # C16427-204; these brackets are a custom fit that mount to existing holes in the frame of your 2500.

I've attached a link to a video which shows them being installed in a 2016 Ram 2500.
