Curt Gooseneck Hitch - Below the Bed - C75KR Review


Hello, our buddy, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to taking a look at this CURT EZr double lock under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch with the installation kit. Has a 30,000 lbs gross towing weight capacity. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2020 and newer Chevrolet and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks without the OEM prep package. And on a custom fit part like this.

I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show if this'll work for your application.Now, this is a nice heavy-duty under bed hitch that'll let you tow your gooseneck trailer. And what's nice about this system, it's a double lock design system. And what that means is it provides added security with two pins holding the ball in place, instead of one. On a lot of normal fifth wheel or gooseneck hitches when you let the handle go, the pin is just one pin that goes across to hold it. This one actually uses two pins, and I want to just put an insert up to show you what we're talking about.

You can see when it's unlocked. In other words, if we go over here to the handle and we pull it out and then twist it to hold it in the unlocked position, the two pins are out. So that'll allow you to take the ball out. You can see when the.. is in the locked position, so if we twist this and release it, the two pins go in.

You can see it shows the double lock position. And then when we flip it over, you can put it in a double lock so it's actually two pins that are holding it into place.Now they do use zinc plating on the locking mechanism to provide superior corrosion resistance. And you can see the ball itself has a nice chrome plated hitch ball that easily removes when you're not towing for complete access to your truck bed. When this is all installed, this will be underneath your bed. So the ball and the safety hooks are the only things that will be showing up at the top.

So again, if you're not towing anything, you can pull the handle out, turn it to hold it open, and then you can just lift the ball out just like that. And you can see when you flip it over, there's a little handle on the bottom here, drop it back into the hole and it'll stop. And then just release the handle. And those two pins will go across and lock it into position. So it flips over and stores upside down in the hitch for easy access.It does include this nice rubber cover that you can actually put on there after you're storing it. And once you push it all the way down, that'll keep any dirt or grime from building up in there and make it hard to get the ball up. Also, if you notice has a nice Chrome ring around here. Surrounds the hitch ball hole, provides a nice tight low-profile look and the handle right over here, it's a nice comfort grip handle. It can be positioned on either side of the truck bed. You can have it over here, or you can put it over here. Whichever works for your application.Now the. does use these five eighths inch thick spring loaded safety chain, hookups that are built in. You can see you just pull up on them and hook your safety chains into there. This is a nice black powder coated steel, which is very durable and corrosion resistant. And to install this now we've attached the center hitch here with the installation kit. So this is how it would look like all installed, but it's actually an easy one-person installation with the included mounting kit we have here. All you have to do is drill a four inch diameter hole in the bed. So you can access the hole right here and they help you out with that. They give you this orange centered locator. And what you do with that is when you go to put your hitch up and install it, you drop this into the hole and you leave it in there.Then when you put it up there, when you go to drill, it has a center hole here, the center locator. You don't need to measure where the ball hole is going to be, or guess. All you have to do is put that in there. Start with a pilot hole. And as you start drilling up, you'll know, you'll get drilled far enough when these orange shavings. You'll hit this orange center locator and you'll see orange shaving starting to appear. That means you're drilled far enough and you know when to stop. There's no welding required to install this and the truck bed does not need to be removed to install it.Now, CURT does offer additional accessories that you can use with this. They do have an adapter plate if you wanted to tow a fifth wheel. They have an adapter plate. It's part number C16220. We do sell that separately on our website. Basically that adapter will install into this round ball hole. You lock it into place with the dual pins, and it'll give you above bed base rails for installation of a fifth wheel trailer hitch. And they do also offer a four inch offset hitch ball. We do sell separately. It's part number C602. And what that'll do is that'll extend or provide you four more inches of additional space between your truck's cab in your gooseneck trailer if you need additional clearance.A few specs on this, again. Let me pull the ball out. So we just pull our handle, twist it to hold it open, pull up the ball, flip it over. Again drop it into place, release the handle and the pins will lock it. The ball size is your standard gooseneck ball size of two and five sixteenths diameter. Gross towing weight capacity is 30,000 lbs. Gross tongue weight capacity is 6,250 lbs. And it does come with everything laid out here. It does have the mounting hardware and a few more mounting pieces that are required to install this. But that should do it for the review on this CURT EZr double lock under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch with the installation kit and a 30,000 lbs gross towing weight capacity.
