Curt Q25 Slider for 2016 Ram 3500 Short Bed w/ OEM Prep for Hauling a 2021 Heartland Cyclone 4006


I have a 2016 ram 3500 megacab with 5th wheel ball and puck adapter. Looking to purchase a 2021 heartland cyclone 4006 and wondering if the goosebox alone would give me enough clearance for my can with the trailer cap cutouts. I can get the slider, but if it will clear I would rather not. Any assistance is appreciated.

With your 2016 Ram 3500 Megacab having the 6 1/2 foot bed, even with the goose box you referenced, I recommend going with a sliding hitch. The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R24 Slider - Dual Jaw item # C16566 is rated for 24,000 lbs and would be perfect to haul your 2021 Heartland Cyclone 4006 with a GVWR of 20,000 lbs. Backing and maneuvering into your camping or parking space will be easier as this hitch prevents your trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during sharp, slow-speed turns.

The Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider Package item # C16022 will fit your Ram Towing Prep package. It has a quarter-turn anchoring system for quick installation and removal and is protected with a durable carbide black powder coat finish.
