Curt Gooseneck - Custom Install Kit - C60633 Review


Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a quick look at the Curt custom, underbed, OEM style, gooseneck trailer hitch. Now this is going to be a fit for the 2019 and on Ram 2,530 500. That's both for the short and long bed, or the six and a half foot bed and the eight foot bed. So this is going to give you a really nice gooseneck to go right into your truck without too much trouble, at all.

There's no welding, no drilling required with this. Except to make the hole in our bed to allow the ball to drop down through. And then also for our our safety chain loops to come up through the bed. So pretty minimal modification. Dodge usually has a a pretty good record of allowing for, or kind of planning ahead for the addition of gooseneck into their trucks.

And now they actually have the rails already installed in the bed, so that there's an easy place to Mount this up to.There's really only four bolts that you need to put in place, to get the head mounted. And it also comes with a template, to make it a lot easier to drill out that three and a half inch diameter hole for your ball to drop through. Now the way this works, unlike a lot of others to take the ball out, you just have to turn this little tab at the top and then you can remove it. It's held in place by these two ball-bearings. So as you turn that pushes those out and now they're locked in solid in place.

So whenever your coupler is on top of the ball, there's no way that these can disengage since that little tab is going to be held in place. So it's a really secure system. There is a lip going all the way around the inside of the head assembly.So that's where those balls, those Baldy tents are going to fit into. And we can take a look at that in a minute. But it's a really nice system, very simple and easy to use.

The advantage that I like about this is that you don't have to get out of your truck, pull the handle to undo a bolt passing through that ball. You can just undo it right from the bed. It makes it pretty quick and simple and you don't have to get in and out of your truck to disassemble anything. So it makes it simple there. The one bad thing about this ball assembly is that you can't flip it over and just store it inside the head assembly. It doesn't fit back down in there, as you can see. Just doesn't happen. So that's one thing that other assemblies do have going for them, is that you don't have to find a place to store the ball. But it's not going to take up too much space.You can put this in your glove compartment, put it under your seat, and your truck whenever you don't need it. And whenever that's also going on, it comes with a rubber cap to drop down in the hole to take up the space and also prevent any gunk from getting built up in that, that opening. So if you're hauling gravel, sand, dirt, anything like that, it's not going to all start spilling out of that gooseneck opening. Just cover it with that little rubber cap, and you're good to go there. So whenever this is installed, the only things that you're going to see are the opening here, with either your cap or your ball in place. And then the two safety chain loops on either side. So really easy install, much easier than a lot of the other ones, where you have to install the rails. Get an extra set of hands to get it in place.This one, if you want to grab an extra set of hands, it's a pretty simple install. The head assembly probably weighs about 50 pounds. So not ultra light, but something that if you feel up to it and you are safe about it, you can probably end up doing it yourself. But it's always good to have a buddy to help you get anything installed. Comes with all the hardware you see here, including that template. So whenever you're assemble, or whenever you're putting the head in place, you want to make sure that you put this in there before you actually get a bolted in. There's just four bolts to put in place, so if you happen to forget it's not a huge deal but this is going to be the template to allow you to make that initial pilot hole for your opening. And it just helps to get everything centered nicely so that you don't have to worry about it being a little bit off. And it makes things a lot easier whenever we go to drill out that circle for the rest of your install.So make sure that this is in place as, you raise that up into position. It does come with that comes all the hardware and the cap. And all in all this is going to be a really great easy to use system. The gross towing weight capacity of this is going to be 35,000 pounds. The ball size is going to be two and five 16th and it is covered by a limited lifetime warranty from Curt. And all the parts are assembled in the USA. Now with that gross towing weight, you want to make sure that you're not exceeding your trucks weight carrying capabilities. Just because this is rated for 35,000 pounds doesn't mean that your truck is so always go by the manufacturer's recommended weight rating there you want to go buy the lowest number of any component in your system, basically that's just the best rule to go by.The diameter for our spring loaded safety chains, there's going to be five eighths financial, Capri, nice and thick. The ball is made out of a Chrome plated steel, and our head assembly is made out of a sturdy steel construction as well. But that's pretty much going to do it for our look, at the Curt custom underbed, OEM style, gooseneck trailer hitch. Do you have any other questions, or we can answer anything for you We're happy to do so here at etrailer.com one additional note that I will make with this is that it is not designed to be used with the x-5 adapters. Those would be the adapters that drop in there and then allow you to haul a fifth wheel. It's really always best to either get a fifth wheel, either your fifth wheel rails, or get a gooseneck hitch to haul your trailer; rather than adapting one for the other. Just makes for a better hauling experience. So that's pretty much going to do it. Thanks for watching and we'll see you next time.
