Yes, if you:

  • Have a third brake light camera to see the color-coded latch indicators so you don't have to get in and out of your truck when hooking up
  • Go down washboard roads to get to your favorite campgrounds and need a little extra shock absorption to keep from feeling every bump

No, if you:

  • Have a trailer with a rotating pin box, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, or 5th Airborne Sidewinder
  • Prefer an American-made hitch

Secure, Two-Piece Jaw

Q24 Two-Piece Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


Three-Point Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator - either the one on the handle or the one on the hitch itself - to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green).


Q24 Color Indicator System

360-Degree Pivot

Curt's unique spherical axial bearing provides a durable pivot point that allows easy, 360-degree movement of the hitch head. This ball joint is designed for smooth, quiet operation with less clunking and chucking.

I purchased the Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch to tow a Cedar Creek Champagne with a 2016 Ram 3500 DRW. This hitch is easy to install with and easy to operate. I put it together in about an hour with one other person. I have towed about 2400 miles with it over the past few months and haven’t had any problems or noticeable wear. Don’t forget to retorque your bolts when you are supposed to!

The unit comes in two boxes - separate head and leg assembly. The boxes were damaged and had been taped. Several of the bolts, nuts and washers were outside the shipping packages, but all were accounted for. The assembly instructions were straightforward and easy to read. The assembly went well and, despite the poor condition of the boxes, there were no scratches or defects. The installation in the Ram puck system is very smooth. All in all, a solid unit. We will see how it performs when picking up the 5th wheel.

I have not pulled with this yet, but after lifting this to put it together, it's going to be durable because this hitch is heavy. You will need two people to get it out of your truck or use the trailer to lift it out and store it on the 5th wheel hitch.

Still a nice hitch, easy to use.

Saved myself about $150 buying this online from Etrailer instead of my local rv/camping shop. My hitch arrived on time. The boxes were tore up but the website warned me about that ahead of time. Packaging wasn't an issue as all items were inside and intact. Assembly was simple and I had plenty of help from all the instructional videos I found on YouTube. Great hitch and I highly recommend that you purchase your new hitch from Etrailer.

This 5th wheel hitch fits OEM hitch mount provisions perfectly on my 2017 Ram 3500. Connecting and disconnecting works well. This hitch is heavy for one person to manage, but a hoist set-up makes for easy installation and removal. Tows well with no play between trailer pin and truck. Great product.

Melinda at was great and help select the best hitch solution for my needs. Hitch arrived exactly when promised. Hitch itself appears to be solidly built. Some minor irritations like the locking pin cables crimped so hard that the cables were cut in two on two of the four leg pins. Will have to do my own anchors for those. Also packaging, as noted in other reviews, is pretty weak. After opening I understand why the whole box was wrapped in shrink wrap. Looked like a war was conducted inside with piece parts scattered to the winds. Shrink wrap kept it all inside thankfully Install was straight forward, and went in easy with two people. Could be a little challenging for one person. Hitch now resides on a RAM 2500 8ft with 5th wheel OEM prep. 5th wheel gets picked up next week.


Comments
So far, this hitch has been absolutely trouble free. The two piece design makes for a uick and easy removal or install when I need the bed to be free of restrictions ! Happy camper

The Curt Q20 hitch went together well, was easy to hook up the 5th wheel, and locked positively. Always a pleasure doing business with etrailer. It's hard, if not impossible to beat their prices, and shipping is very fast.

This has been a good choice for a hitch. It's reasonably priced hitch and does the job it's made for. My rig's GVW is 15,000, so this is sufficient for me. My only concerns are that I've had some problems unhitching the trailer. I'm not sure if that's my rig leaning on the jaws or if that's problem with the hitch itself. I don't know it that would have been a problem if I had bought the B and W or Demco hitch. My second concern is one that can't be corrected as far as I know. I've got a dually and it's difficult for me to reach the handle because of my height. I carry a small step ladder to get over the fender for that. When I ordered the hitch, it was time sensitive, since after I ordered one form another site, the order never came through. I called etrailer, and they promised a quick delivery, and they came through. It was a pleasure working with them. They get 5 stars!

I have been towing a trailer since 1988. I have had several hitches from different manufacturers. The curt Q20 is the best hitch I have owned. There is a lot of pluses to this hitch the way it is designed. It was worth the money when you consider the peace of mind when towing.

Hitching and unhitching is easy. There is no swaying or lurching when towing. Having the color code makes me feel more secure that the trailer is locked into position and ready to go.

2 years ago I bought a inexpensive Curt hitch for a previous camper. I asked what the difference was between that and an 800 to $1,000 unit, now I know why. The long-term ride with this hitch is really great, double Jaws versus single Jaws is the way to go

After 1 year the 20K Curt is still like new. It was an easy drop in for the puck system on my 2016 Ram 3500 dually. We pull a 42 foot fifth wheel camping and it does the business. Easy hook up with one person and the color coded handle comes in handy. Recommended buy!


Comments
After a year, it is still like new. Couple grease points and using a hitch plate and really can not tell it has been used. The hitch is great and well recommended!

Product was delivered about 8 pm last night. I was surprised that it arrived 2 days early. The boxes were beat up pretty bad but no discernable damage and all parts seem to be there. I haven't been able to install it yet so I comment on anything else. I eill comnent further when I get the opportunity to install it in a day or two. It looks well constructed and fairly easy to assemble. So far I am happy the product as far as I have gotten.

I have had this hitch for a year now. I tow a 38 ft 5th wheel approx. 16000 lbs. It is very easy to hitch and un-hitch. Very stable ride. I think this is a great product. Very important to keep it lubed, but it is easy to lube.


Comments
I have been using now for over two years many miles on the 5th wheel and hitch. I have had zero problems with it, still functions great. As I stated above you must keep it lubed for easy release of the hitch, but it is very easy to lube. Great product.

    If you flip your Q20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16530-16021 upside down you will see that there is a pilot that extends below the bearing shaft, through a rubber grommet in a square pad. My contact at Curt said that the rubber square is holding onto that pilot which is why you are having trouble removing the head.

  • Is Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch Overkill to Tow a 14,000 lb Trailer

The Q20 has a capacity of 20,000 lbs. This means it can safely tow a 5th wheel trailer UP TO 20,000 lbs - there are no adverse affects to using a 5th wheel hitch that is overrated for the weight of the trailer.

The equivalent for the M20 that you mentioned is the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16530-16021, which will drop right into the factory pucks in the truck bed (see attached image).

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory Hitch Prep Package
    I would go with the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3600 over the Curt Hitch part # C16530-16021. The Comapion series of fifth wheel hitches is often regarded as the nicest fifth wheel hitch around. Many people swear by them. Because of that I would recommend it for you.
