Question:

I have the Curt EZr 30k double lock gooseneck ball hitch. I need a fifth wheel adapter plate and slider fifth wheel hitch. Which ones would you recommend for our 41ft 13,500lb fifth wheel camper?

Let's start with the adapter you need for the Curt EZr Double Lock Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # C611-624 in your 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 short bed, which is the Curt X5 5th-Wheel Base Rail Adapter Plate for EZr Double Lock Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # C16220.

This adapter will fit into the EZr hitch and give you above-bed fifth wheel rails for a number of compatible 5th wheel hitches. Among those that will work, the best sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 13,500 lb fifth wheel is the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R16 Slider # C16521.

The A16 is the best hitch because of its powerful dual jaw system which makes full contact with your king pin to give you a comfortable ride, and because its color-coded lock indicator makes the hitch easy to use. The A16 has an interlocking dual jaw system that wraps totally around your king pin, which means that the back-and-forth chucking, bucking and jarring that you get when towing with lesser hitches won't occur with the A16, for a more peaceful journey

It also has a handy indicator system which will let you know if the jaws on the hitch are ready to couple, uncouple or tow. This color-coded system, which you can check out in the accompanying photo, makes the process of hooking up or disconnecting your trailer much simpler. The Curt A16 has a fully articulating head which further eases the coupling process and has built in zerk fittings so you can lube the hitch without issue.

I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well of both the Curt X5 5th-Wheel Base Rail Adapter Plate # C16220 and Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R16 Slider # C16521.

Question:

I see you are recommending a 16k GTW. I would prefer to use a 20k slider hitch. Which one would you recommend?

Helpful Expert Reply:

For a 20,000 lb capacity sliding hitch, I still recommend going with the Curt A-Series that I mentioned above, but with a higher capacity, which is the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R20 Slider # C16541.

This has all the benefits of the A16 hitch, just with the 20k capacity that you are looking for.
