Video Transcript for Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2022 Ram 2500

What's up, everybody It's A.J. with Today, we're gonna be checking out the Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch assembly. And today we're putting it on the Curt adapter for the above-bed puck system that comes OEM with this 2022 Ram 2500. Right away we wanna point out that we are in a shorter six foot bed on this Ram. So this would really only work with a longer bed and eight for one just because of it's a static hitch, it's not gonna move around. So it would work with a slider.

You can get it in a kit with that if that's something you need but it will not work with the sidewinder style King Pin. So just keep that in mind. I think this will work great for the eight foot bed. Now today the way we have this set up is since our Ram has the factory under bed puck system, as we use the adapter from Curt and that's gonna go into those pucks and allow you to attach the fifth wheel legs to the adapter itself. That way it's above bed and you can still use this if you already had this assembly.

You just need to get the adapter to use it in your new truck with the pucks. Let's look at how it connects. It's got a two jaw system, which is better than just the one jaw system. Which that usually works but this gives you a complete coverage of the kingpin so you know it's secure in there. It's really easy operate.

We've got the handle here. I'll pull the pin. Pull this back. Even has an indicator on this side that lets you know. So it's green, so it means it's good to tow right now because it would be connected if we had something in there.

So come here, pull the side. We are in red, so that means it's uncoupled and then yellow would be it's coupled. It's ready to go. So when it's in yellow now we back up to the King Pin, it would activate these jaws. I'm gonna show you how the jaws work. This is gonna be a King Pin insert. So we're backing up to the trailer on the King Pin. It gets lined up with the two jaws. Once it hits the jaws and pushes back, they go into place. So that brings the handle in. So now the indicator's gonna be green for ready to tow. You wanna make sure you latch it back just for extra security and then you're ready to hit the road. As far as security goes, you don't have to just use this pin. It's nice as this is included, but sold separately, you can get a padlock run through there and lock this up. That way no one can unlatch this and mess with this when you're not around. When you go to set it up or back it up to your trailer, the head does pivot back and forth so that's gonna help you adjust. If it's slightly off and you're coming in and you don't have to worry about it straight on, it will adjust to you backing in. So I'll show you kind of here. I'll pull it an angle. You might not be able to see much but also pull it in to the side. It still adjusted just fine. You can see it pivots back and forth and can go front and back. So it will adjust as you back that King Pin in. You also get this plate that acts as a barrier on your King Pin. So you put it all the way on there on the bottom and that's gonna protect it against metal on metal contact. So instead it'll hit that plate as it comes in here. Which is gonna keep from scraping everything up. There's also gonna be three points to help add grease to it to keep it moving easily. So there's gonna be one up right on front. There's gonna be on the left side and there's gonna be one on the right side. Another nice thing about this is you can detach the head from the base, which is gonna not only make it lighter but easier to install or remove. So I'm gonna pull the clips on the inside and show you the two pin system. There's one on this side. So you have one on the opposite side. Then you're gonna lift and remove the head out. Now it does resist a little bit, so you will have to pull up. And as I shake it back and forth, it slowly starts to come out. And I can remove that, set it aside, and then remove the base separately. The Q20 is gonna have a gross total weight rating of 20,000 pounds. It's gonna have a vertical load limit of 5,000 pounds. And this does weigh 139 pounds. So if you need help with it, get some help loading into the truck and set in the place. Now you can disassemble it, remove the head to make it a little bit lighter and easier for one person. Installing is really easy. We just drop it off the adapter, line up the tabs with the holes, and it goes right in the place. We'll go underneath and add in our pin and clips. Overall, I think this is a good fifth wheel hitch. Now if you have the eight foot bed, it's gonna be better. Don't recommend it for the six foot bed just because of how limited it is. But the jaws going right around the King Pin, really nice. It's all the way around there. It's gonna take up some of that rattling. The way it adjusts when you back up into it is gonna be really easy to do as well. The handle was easy to pull out. It had the color code here on the side so if you did have a backup camera here or you could see it in the mirror, you could see that it was green and good to go and you're good to tow. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out and I hope this helped..

2022 Ram 2500

it fit perfectly in my RAM 2500 2022 , it reduce the height by 3.5 inch from my original roller Curt set up, since I have air suspension in the back I will simply said be careful when you disconnect because the back of the pick up spring upward when load is removed. The reason I switch was the high of the roller sytem and the puck was way too high for my fifth wheel.



After 1 season the product still perform as new ,easy to removed from the bed if you need the full pick up boxe .quality is as expected it spend the winter installed and do received some snow ounce in a while but no sign of rust

Dodge Ram Pickup

Fits like a glove. From the time UPS dropped it off it took 45 minutes to have it installed in the truck and we were hooked up to go camping, which we did! Thanks to the team for getting it shipped asap! 2020 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system.

2022 Ram 3500

EASY installation with Ram OEM puck system, needed very little adjusting.


Heavier than expected (95#) shipping weight. Which is a good thing. The description probably said that but I didn’t pay attention. The only warning I would give I’d that this with add 3.25” or so of height to your hitch. If you don’t have the adjustment in your set up you may want to look for something a little lower profile. I’m happy with the purchase and very happy with etrailer. Very fast shipping and good prices.

2022 Dodge Ram Pickup

Easy to install worked like it should, in 2023 Ram 3500


Very nice rail set up that you can remove when not in use, works great with my Anderson Hitch that was set up for a rail set up on my new 2022 Ram 3500. Also has slots for the chain hooks.


See my review on the A16 sliding 5th wheel hitch, I just wrote.


Perfect!! So easy to install, heavy duty


Easy to assemble and great quality


Great fit, highly recommend it



I quit using it after about the fourth time, too much noise and there was to much play in between the 5th wheel hitch and the adapter

2022 Dodge Challenger

The pin hole alignment was off and took quite a bit of manipulation to get my fifth wheel hitch pins into the pre-drilled holes on the base receiver purchased from etrailer. After an hour and some vigorous encouragement from a hammer, I won't have to worry that the pins will ever work themselves out of the hitch.


Perfect fit, very nice quality product.

Jeep Patriot

Awesome. Easy install. My patriot hitch dropped into the puck adapter perfectly.

Excellent quality and service! I would definitely recommend this prep package and etrailer.
