Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate and Rail Kit for 1989 Chevy C70 truck


I own a 1989 C70 Chevy with a metal flat bed my truck flatbed is 1/4 inch metal do I need a rail kit since i only tow a trailer loaded at 18000 lbs or should i also reinforce under the bed with angle iron

The Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate # C65500 is 3/8 inch thick and is rated at up to 30,000 lbs when there is underbed reinforcement. To tow a trailer loaded at 18,000 lbs I do recommend reinforcing the 1/4 inch metal with something to give you stability in between your frame rails.

For instance the Curt 600 Series Gooseneck Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC # C60631 is a great choice for the support you need. I've attached some videos to assist.
