Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Q24 Two-Piece Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, 2-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.


3-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.

Just installed yesterday Aug. 14; received it On the 13th. Reasonable delivery time. I had some minor frustrations while installing but nothing that was too difficult. Anyone that is the DIY type should have no problem installing a hitch of this type. I am a healthy 71 and with head removed can handle the removal of unit without too much trouble. It will be removed quite often so we can load our ATV in the PU bed at our remote camping sites. Seems like a strong unit. Hope to head out with our trailer next week. And test it out. Ours is a 13K toyhauler so hitch should handle it well.

Quite pleased w hitch. Much less trailer snap than noticed w my old hitch. Was concerned about puck system initially but it seems very reliable

@Wayne Great to hear. Thank you for the update.


by:

The Curt Q20 arrived in 3 days and was perfect with no damage. It went together with four bolts easily and installed into my trucks puck system perfect. The quality and sturdiness of the 5th wheel hitch is nice. I do wish the release handle was longer or a folding extender. Having a dually I have to get up on the tire to reach in to pull it. Other than that its a great hitch. Pulls solid with no chucking or loud noises..the 360 degree pivot and it comes with the lube plate makes it quiet and easy to hook up. I especially like the color coded handle. Incan see it really good with the rear bed camera



by:

Love the Curt brand hitches. I needed this quick when I found out my current hitch would not fit my new truck. Love the puck system GMC offers. We had a trip coming up and etrailer came through. Alex put the order together witch a rush on it and it went out that day. I received it in two days.



by:

Another product delivered perfectly and as quickly as described. Thanks once again you hit it out off the park.



by:

Light, heavy duty, easy for us old guys and just one heck of a good quality hitch. Way better than my old R…….



by:

Seems like a good hitch with less chucking I think due to the Internal rubber dampening. Love the floor puck legs for attaching in my new CHEVY 3500 bed hitch puck system. Only gave it 4 stars due to the difficulty in hitching and unhitching. I really have to tinker with it to clamp or release the pin while exactly following the instructions. Hopefully it will soon loosen up a tad to make it easier.



by:

NOT ENOUGH HEIGTH. The hitch itself is a great hitch, but the Curt hitches do not mount high enough for the 2020 GMC/Chevy HD trucks. I only had around 4 inches of clearance (stock everything) between the bed rails and my Cougar 5th wheel at its highest mount of 17" above the bed. I even lowered the pin box on my 5th wheel and it wasn't enough space. I met another owner who had the A20 and a 2020 Chevrolet who had the exact same issue. I can't remember his toy hauler brand, but it wasn't a Keystone, so I'm thinking this might be a broader issue that Curt needs to address. Note, that Curt is the hitch you can buy through GM, too. Can't believe they didn't figure this out.

It is the best hitch ive ever purchased I have purchased six in the past twenty years



by:

Easy enough to install for just about anyone regardless of mechanical ability. Heavy so help is important and only negative, hitch looks like it will last a lifetime. Packaging was good and no damage during transportation, hitch is high quality so I doubt that it would be damaged even if packaging was damaged. Quick service with knowledgeable sales individuals at etrailer, I almost purchased the wrong hitch. Everything appears to be of very high quality.



by:

It did not get rid of the chucking motion. I then had to buy the Trailer saver hitch and now there is no more chucking.



by:

I really like how fast you got the package shipped to me and wasn't long for my delivery to get here only drawback is my box was damaged so now I'm checking out my hitch make sure it's not damaged before I install it hopefully I don't have to return it

Great product great customer care would recommend you guys highlight

Reason for the rating has nothing to due with the product and all about the service and packaging by etrailer. What a disappointment from the first delivery. The items were not delivered to UPS in a manor that ensured they would be delivered without damage. Items were destroyed when delivered with missing pieces not allowing us to install completely. etrailer customer service sent out new items and the internal system failed to process, causing further delays to correct the issue. Replacement parts arrived in damaged packages, not at the fault of the shipping company, but because items were not prepared correctly. Do not purchase from etrailer, save time and headache and purchase from a local supplier. What a joke of a company.



by:

Short version: Product is fine. Etrailer shipping is laughable at best.

First off, as far as the hitch goes, its a Curt product. Quality is great, it'll work just fine. At least the portion of the hitch that has arrived....

Dealing with Etrailer on the other hand has been a big disappointment. I specifically ordered this hitch from Etrailer because of the estimated delivery times. I needed the hitch prior to a weekend (for reference, the 20th) to move a trailer and the estimated delivery time was three days prior (the 17th) to that weekend.

AFTER the order was placed, the estimated delivery became the 19th, a friday.... okay, so my two day buffer was gone but it was still projecting to be here in time.

Friday rolls around and nothing delivers.

On the following Monday (the 22nd), one of two packages arrives in awful condition. Absolutely destroyed box, patched together with sections of cardboard and staples, and wrapped in tape, styrofoam all broken up... fortunatley its a beefy hitch and did not have anything other than cosmetic damage.

A 110lb hitch in a cardboard box. You think a company shipping a 100+lb hitch would take measures to protect their products a bit better.

I called etrailer and they said they would look into the missing portion of the shipment with UPS and get back to me. Should be quick right? Wrong.

I took the liberty of calling UPS directly to see if they could update me. Only 11 minutes on hold and they informed me they did not know where the package was and would start a claim. Okay... stuff happens. Figured I would call etrailer and take next steps.

I call etrailer back and they said they cant do anything until they hear back from UPS... I talked to UPS in 11 minutes so I'm not sure what they're waiting on. I asked if they would send me a separate set of legs (the missing package) so I could get this trailer moved, and they refused to do so until UPS responds to them (I guess etrailer cant make phone calls, email only).

I should have went with my gut and ordered elsewhere. Oh well. I know where to NOT take my business now. Package your products better and provide realistic estimated shipping times.

I bought a new trailer recently that weighs 16k and I just didn't feel secure using my Reese pro series 16k to Haul with. So I started looking at various hitches. I've had 3 other fifth wheel hitches in the past. All of them have been 15 and 16k models. What I never liked was the latching system. I've even had a trailer come out of the hitch due to a poor latching hook up. There wasn't an good way to lock the hitch. Some of it was my fault and some was a poor design. When I saw the Curt Q20 had a latch on the handle and also was color coded I was hooked. This hitch satisfied my want list. It arrived 4 days after I ordered it and like other comments I've read it was full of heavy duty staples. It was double packaged. There had to be over 50 staples. It was defiantly packaged securely. After dimantaling the packing I finally got to the hitch. There were a few scratches on the hitch from all the staples but a bit of black touch up paint took care of that. After all the hitch is going to be used and get scrached by me anyways. Four bolts and it was together. It fit perfictly it my existing rails. By the way it's heavier than my other hitches. I wound be apprehensive to pull my new trailer. If your looking for a great hitch at a great price you can't go wrong.



by:

Unlike other reviews...I will say that my packages all arrived in perfect condition. (Boxes were all intact). Assembling the Q20 is a breeze and by all appearances this hitch certainly seems to be more than adequate for my needs. I haven't had a chance to actually use it yet...but from what I can tell, I certainly don't expect any issues. I like the way the hitch latches and unlatches, and that you can add a lock to prevent someone from opening the jaws while you are parked somewhere. I think the only thing I'll add is a lock in place of one of the pins...just to make it difficult for someone to remove and steal the hitch.



by:

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.



by:

I have just used the hitch on some very short pulls, nothing long yet. However, I can tell it is much quitter and does not seem to chuck as much as my old hitch. Appears to be very well built. Heavier than the old 15K hitch I had before. The only down I can find right now is that there is not a good place to hook up the emergency stop brake cable. I was able to rig up a connector that works just fine.



by:

This is a great 5th Wheel hitch! Although is is heavy, it was easy to install into the Ram bed by only removing The goose neck ball and the 4 covers for this hitch. Very solid and safe hitch! However, I did remove the safety pin and am using a padlock so no one can simply jerk the release as a sense-less joke while we are away from the rig.



by:

This product has worked perfect for me using with my 2012 Wildcat Sterling 5th wheel. Customer service is the best at etrailer.com. Just love doing business with them!



by:

Because of personal medical issues, I had the hitch installed professionally. I pull a 38' fifth wheel behind a Duramax powered Chevy. The hitch has served it's purpose well and looking forward to using it for many more years!! I purchased the slider version, but have found that I would NOT have had to purchase a slider because of the design of the front of my fifth wheel, as seen in the pic's. I am able to do 90 degree turns without any problems (without moving the hitch rearward).



by:

The Curt Q20 with R20 slider hitch arrived just as promised in 3 days after placing the order. The Q20 head box was totally destroyed. The manufacture packaging was not made to ship individually using small package carrier such as UPS. Upon inspection I discovered that the bolts and washers were missing. I contacted Bill at E-trailer and told him. He explained that the replacements would have to come from the manufacturer and would take several days. I told him that I already scheduled an install and really needed those bolts and washers. He was able to round some up for me and shipped them out next day and they arrived on Monday just as promised. I also spoke with Bill about not being able to remove the head unit for the hitch. It needed to be removed to be able to install it on the slider. It seemed to be stuck and I could not budge it. I assumed that it may have been damaged in shipping, especially after receiving it in a demolished box. He explained to me that since it was new its tolerances were tight and I might try taking a pry bar to it. Well that did not make me feel real good. He was totally correct. Just a little more effort with a pry bar moved it just enough for the bushing to squeak loose and the head came right out. I am disappointed in the jaws on this unit. They look like they were forged by a 3rd grader. Not smooth and somewhat pitted. They are not machined jaws for sure. Had it all installed using the new Reese rail brackets for the 2017 F250. Everything went smooth. An added plus is the quiet ride when not connect to trailer. Can’t even notice the hitch is back there. My other hitch rattled and clanked all the time and was so annoying.
I just hooked my 38ft 5th wheel for the first time. It was smoother and easier than any other hitch I have ever used. I bought the sider unit which is recommended by all for the short bed. However I cannot use the slider as the king pin box slides too close to the tall tail gate. The new 2017 F250 is taller and the bed is deeper so I needed a hitch that would go up to 19 ½ inches. I will update after a my first run with trailer later this month.
Everyone at E-trailer was outstanding. 5 Star. I will keep using them in the future.



by:

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!

  • Parts Needed to Move Curt Q20 from 2015 GMC to 2020 GMC With OEM Prep Package
    To move the Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch head from your 2015 GMC 3500 to the factory pucks of your 2020 use part # CU53FR. This then gives you the complete Q20 hitch for the new GM puck system which is part # C57FR

  • Comparing Curt A20 and Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500
    The difference between the Q20 # C16130 and the A20 # C16140 is the design of the head. The A20 is the newer design that has the more standard dual pivoting head allowing front to back and side to side movement. The Q20 has a spherical axial bearing that allows 360 degree movement for a quieter ride. Customers have also at times had issues with easily connecting to their trailer because the head can move in all directions. My recommendation for you is the A20 and if you have the factory...

  • Will Curt Q20 5th Fixed Hitch C57FR Fit OEM Pucks In 2024 Chevy 2500 Short Bed?
    Yes, the Curt # C57FR you were looking at will fit directly into the puck system in your 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500. You may be able to get away without a slider, but the only way to know for sure is take a few measurements off of your truck/trailer combo. (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from center of fifth wheel hitch jaw to truck cab B = Length of pin box arm C = Width of trailer divided by 2 (to get half) For an example, if the distance from the center of the hitch to the cab...

  • Differences Between Curt A20 and Q20 5th Wheel Hitch
    Both the Curt # C57FR Q20 and # C84FR A20 are compatible with the pucks in the bed of your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 long bed. There are a few important differences. The A20 uses an interlocking jaw that holds the king pin tightly all around its 360º circumference. The Q20 uses a 2 piece jaw that doesn't interlock, so it doesn't hold the king pin quite as tightly as the A20 does. This means that the king pin won't move around in the jaws which provides a smoother ride. The A20 uses a torsion...

This is the shortest hitch on the market that fits in the OEM pucks on your 2021 GMC Sierra 3500.

This is literally the exact same thing just with different legs that match up with the new puck system you have. Please note that we recommend the stationary hitches for the long beds only.
