Is Curt C16251 A16 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With Reese 5th Wheel Bed Rails

Question:

I have Reese rail pretty sure anyway, I think I bought them from etrailer and I used a Reese hitch but I really like the Curt double clasp hitch. Will it fit into Reese rails? thanks

Expert Reply:

Reese 5th wheel bed rails are referred to as industry standard bed rails, as the front to back rail spacing and the spacing of the slots in the rails are industry standard. Reese industry standard bed rails are compatible with Draw-Tite, Husky, Valley (not their UBS hitch), Demco above bed mount and B&W above bed mount hitches, as well as with Curt 5th wheel hitches such as the excellent Curt # C16521 A16 Sliding 5th wheel hitch you'd looked at.

I've linked to a demonstration video for the Curt hitch, as well as to a photo showing the typical industry standard bed rail slot spacing.
