CURT Develops OEM Compatible 5th Wheel Legs for Ford Trucks

, Claire, WI (February 2, 2015) – CURT Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium towing products, has developed OEM compatible 5th wheel legs made specifically to fit Ford truck beds that contain the towing prep package.

With the development of Ford’s add-on towing prep package, designed to make 5th wheel and gooseneck installations easier and smoother, CURT saw a need for its consumers and developed the 16017, OEM compatible 5th wheel legs for Ford. The legs mount directly into the under-bed mount locations and convert any CURT 5th wheel hitch head to Ford’s under-bed hitch platforms, including CURT’s Q16, Q20, Q24 and E16 hitch heads.

The most unique feature of CURT’s 5th wheel legs is the variable position anchors that allow the 5th wheel hitch to easily drop into the under-bed mounting points. A quarter-turn anchoring system allows quick and easy 5th wheel installation and removal. The anchors can be adjusted to limit movement and eliminate unwanted chucking noises. CURT estimates installation to take just 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the installer’s level of expertise.

CURT’s OEM compatible 5th wheel legs for Ford have a gross trailer weight capacity of up to 24,000 lbs. This heavy-duty product is completed with a durable carbide powder coat finish to give it superior rust and scratch resistance.
