Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

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 raised side rails - since this hitch sits low in the bed, it might not give you enough space for your trailer to clear
  • Have a trailer with a rotating pin box, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, or 5th Airborne Sidewinder
  • Would rather have 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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (398 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has a dual jaw and color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. Self-aligning, pivoting head and included lube plate make hookup a snap. Legs mount to Ram OEM underbed platform.


I bought the Curt Q24 5th wheel towing hitch because it was designed for the RAM "puck" system. It has been an excellent choice and an awesome hitch. It is securely stable and I had to make only minor adjustments to the hitch (height) so that it travel level to my truck bed. The seating and locking mechanism is spot on and works perfectly. For those folks considering it, I fully recommend it, but I/we purchased a engine puller off [online] to lift it and place it in the truck bed safely. It is a very heavy hitch and our RAM 2500HD long bed is pretty high off the ground. We could not be more pleased with the purchase, and the price at etrailer couldn't be beat.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

I installed this into the 5th wheel prep package that comes on a 2016 Ram 3500. Although I installed the prep package myself, the CURT system dropped right in. It took me about 90 min to assemble and install the hitch system in my truck with very little adjustment. The directions were easy to follow and felt it all went very smooth. When O was finished I hooked up my RV w/o any problems. I am very pleased with this set up and would definitely install it again. The only drawback it the weight but it's to be expected w/ a 25k lb system

Great. A little heavy to be taking in and out but i have a hoist system in place now
Brian M - 04/15/2017

2020 Ram 3500

Boxes were beat but the hitch was perfect! Fit is excellent, there was only a minor tightness on the drop in portion of the install. After driving with it installed, unhitched, the fit is perfect.
Be sure to grease the load bar as it comes dry.
The zirk fittings are hidden but labeled for use. Have a fixed neck grease gun to access them.
The hitch, less the wheel plate is still heavy and a 2 person pull from the bed. All things considered, it beats a flat plate hitch hands down.

Dodge Ram Pickup

OUTSTANDING! From customer service to delivery. Ordered the hitch on a Saturday evening and received an email stating they did not have the legs for my hitch to fit in my RAM, but would contact dealer first thing Monday morning. Monday I receive another email that the parts had shipped. Tuesday I picked up the hitch and installed it in less than an hour! Total time from shipping to receiving was less than 30 hours! Super easy! Thank You! You have my business.

Love it! Working great so far. Will give it another test tomorrow as we pull out on vacation
Michael I - 12/12/2017


This hitch tows ok, seems more dampened and not quite as much bucking and jerking as the b&w. However, latching and unlatching the trailer is not as friendly as the b&w. Can be difficult if your truck is not level and the jaws are slightly bound up.

2014 Ram 3500

Received the hitch in a few days from purchase, the boxes were beat up a bit but the contents were perfect. Assembled the hitch to the legs, then dropped it into the OEM pucks in the truck. A few quick adjustments to the locking legs and it was in place.
First hookup to my trailer was a breeze, I had the hitch on the lowest setting and it was right at the right height for my trailer. Lined up and backed in, the locking mechanism snapped into place immediately, flipped the locking lever and put the snap ring in place and was ready to go.
Unhooking was just as easy, no pressure on the jaws and it slid open and the trailer was free.
Great value for such a heavy hitch, would buy again, etrailer was fantastic to deal with as well.


Like that it has a color code to be sure of its position. So far, happy with it

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Perfect fit! Fast shipping! Caleb was very easy to talk to. Knowledgeable! As far as assembly.. piece of cake. Not even 15 minutes. I would highly recommend this product!!! Oh...I actually installed this on a 2016 Dodge 2500 Mega Cab short box with no slider. Wouldn't recommend it with an older fifth wheel.


Quick shipping. Installed by myself in about 2hrs. Extra hand would have been nice. Connected my 36’ fifth wheel today for first time today. Very smooth connection and no banging metal noises like my Reese budget 15 or 16 k that was installed when I bought my camper. Will take it on the road in a few days for a quick camping trip. Just moving camper around my yard I can tell it’s a much better hitch.

2015 Ram 3500

Received the hitch with all the parts and easy to install. Deliver had some problems UPS left both packages in driveway. Someone used about half a box of staples so unpacking was difficult. Hole in the box but all parts were there. The video says it's easy to remove the fifth wheel by two pins and cap. What they don't say is the rubber holding the shaft will need wd40 and a pry bar to get it apart. Good thing rubber part is available. This is a well made hitch just had some shipping problems.

2014 Ram 3500

This hitch fits like a glove! Super easy install, 6 bolts to install, base only fits one way drop in the factory holes tighten down then slide the plate into place and done. Very inpressed with how well put together the product is very happy with my Q24 truck won't take that much pulling weight but the price for the best is more security.

2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

This hitch is made with great quality. It is a perfect fit in my 2019 Ram Longhorn! Easy to assemble and install. Would recommend this to anyone needing a 5th wheel hitch.

2015 Ram 3500

The hitch is great! Fast shipping, easy to install, and adjustments are easily made. The only thing was the packaging was torn, ripped and most the nuts, bolts, and washers were scattered inside the boxes. Luckily all the parts were in the boxes considering the packaging had holes. The 5 stars are for the product itself, not the condition of the packages upon arrival, they get a 1 star.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

Just completed the inaugural tow with this hitch on a 2020 Dodge RAM 3500. Awesome! Easy connect, disconnect, (uncouple), and solid steady ride while towing. Looking forward to the next trip. We towed a 42' 5th wheel @ 16,000 #'s.


The Hitch arrived as advertised. Excelent condition and was very easy to put together and install. 400.00 less than local est to buy and install.....


It was easy to put together I like the indicator stickers to help make sure it was locked in being able to see the that it was locked around the kingpin breaking it down into two pieces be able to pull it out of the truck easily by myself and made that a lot better quick and put it together quick to install it I've only got to use it a few times before I had some unfortunate accident to my fifth wheel while it was in storage but I really enjoyed it liked it especially like the price of it and have had no problems and appreciate the little white disc you sent with me so I didn't have to put any grease on the top of the fifth wheel

2017 Ram 3500

I've used this hitch twice now and it works fantastic.

It works great. Best 5th wheel hitch Ive owned.
Richard - 04/16/2019


Have had trouble with the Jaws opening during trips. Could not uncompleted from my truck bed

I do have an alternate solution for you. I see that you had a rotating pin box on your king pin. This 5th wheel hitch is not compatible with rotating pin boxes, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, and 5th Airborne Sidewinders. Curt does have a 5th wheel that is compatible, part # C16180

2018 Ram 3500

Product arrived in less that two days. Shipping boxes were in good shape, Hitch and rails were exactly as expected. Unpacked and assembled in less than an hour. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and the product!


It went together great,slight adjustment on 2 legs so that all 4 legs had the same tension. Went for a drive with 5th wheel all works great. Thanks Sam


there was too much slop in this hitch, did not meet the expectations


Great product!! Install took about 30 min and ready to tow my 5th wheel. Thanks Curt Products.


Great customer service

Dano - 07/22/2022

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed in 2016 Dodge Ram 3500, pulling a 36' Hitchhiker DA through Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. Love the ease of connection and security of the double-locking jaws. The red-yellow-green color indicator is a good feature to show when the jaws are locked and ready to go or open and ready to hook-up. I like the safety pin that can be padlocked to keep the release handle from being pulled by someone in the parking lot. This isn't the first 5th wheel hitch I have owned but I plan on it being the last. Great hitch.

Have made several long trips and several shorter trips and couldnt happier with the hitch. Easy connect/disconnect and the double-jaw lock gives the assurance the trailer will arrive at the same time the truck does. Have had several other 5th-wheel hitches but none came close to this product.
Gabbygab - 02/20/2018

Ordered the hitch, received it in a couple of days, installed it in my 2018 ram 3500 4x4 and now im ready to go camping.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 2500 Long Bed with Factory Prep Package
    We do have hitches that will fit directly into the factory prep package in your 2016 Ram 2500 long bed. I recommend the Curt Q24, # C16545-16021. The base of this hitch fits directly into the 4 pucks in the truck bed so no adapter is needed. This hitch is rated for 24,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 6,000 pounds pin weight. It has a secure double-jaw design for solid jaw-to-king-pin contact. And the head is cushioned for a smoother ride. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.

  • Determining 5th Wheel Hitch Height for Level Towing
    The Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16545-16021 should be set up to the top height initially. This will ensure you don't have issues with the side rails of your truck if you can't measure first. Then you will adjust down as you can to make trailer level when towing.

So the most efficient way to do that would be to have your trailer sit as level as possible parked and then measure from the pin box mounting surface (not the king pin) down to the ground. Now measure from the top of your truck bed down to the...

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).

  • Curt A25 vs Q24 Fifth Wheel Hitches for Commercial Campers on 2018 Ram 3500
    Between the two, I recommend the Curt A25 # C16046 over the Q24 # C16545-16021. Both are great fifth wheel hitches that are compatible with your truck and would certainly fit your needs for hauling commercial campers. They are both made for trucks with an OEM Prep Package, making installation very simple and can both haul up to 24,000 lbs. However, the A25 is the upgraded version of the Q-Series.

The A-Series also has a one pin head removal system which helps when frequently installing or removing the hitch. The dampening mechanism built-into...
