Can Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16520-16021 Safely Pull 14,350 Pound GVWR Trailer  


Im looking to purchase this 5th wheel hitch to fit my 2017 Ram 3500 with the factory 5th wheel prep package. The trailer I have is a 14350 lb. GVWR - 2350 lb. Hitch weight and a 11414 lb. UVW. Will the Curt C16520- 16021 hitch be capable of towing this trailer?

Yes, the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16520-16021 that you referenced, which will drop right into those factory pucks on your Ram 3500, has more than enough capacity to safely and comfortably pull the 14,350 pound GVWR trailer you're looking to purchase. This durable hitch features a 16,000 pound towing weight capacity and a 4,000 pound vertical load limit, both of which give you a healthy safety margin over the trailer's heaviest possible weight.

The A16 is a really great choice and one that I recommend often because of its interlocking 2-jaw system that creates an extremely secure connection and leads to a smooth, quiet ride during travel. I also really like its 3-point indicator system that lets you quickly see when you're ready to tow or uncouple.
