Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

Three-Point Indicator System

A20 Color 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).

I have towed with the Curt A20 for a few thousand miles. I really like this hitch. The visual hooked versus unkooked indicator is awesome. It operates flawlessly. I do get some chucking over bridge expansion joints. However, it seems like most people have this problem. On normal roads it pulls great.

Excellent hitch, took two of us 10 minutes, during a rain storm lol, to put together and install! As far as towing our Redwood 5th wheel it performed flawlessly, easy to hook up and the ride was super smooth and no noticeable bucking!

by:

Very good hitch, I'm pleased with durability and ease of use. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the base locking pins that are slightly smaller than the holes they fit in and make the trailer "clunk" when taking off or stopping.

Seems like a good hitch, installed but haven't used it yet. The way the hitch is packaged is terrible. Even the bolt and bracket kit for the rails wasn't packaged very well. Heavy objects in a box flying around. Box was ripped open but luckily didn't lose any parts. Installed on a 2007 dodge 3500.

Hitch came packed well even though the box looked banged up. Everything was still undamaged and in good usable condition, just minor scuffs. I think this unit will have more when I get done with it. Watched a you tube video from curt on installation and had little trouble installing the hitch following the enclosed guidelines. Everything lined up according to plan. I think the hardest part was getting access by the heat shield. Tough spot to work on but I had help from a younger, more adapt helper who was able to manage just fine. A creeper for underneath was super handy and a 6 foot ladder to climb in and out of the bed made it a whole lot easier. Really did not need to use a lift. Would have made it a bit harder to work in the bed. My truck is quite high which allowed nice working space underneath.

Hitch slid into existing rails after a very minor adjustment. Took my son and I about 25 minutes to assemble, torgue bolts and adjust rails in the bed of my truck. we have used it twice already and camper did not bang and pop like it did on old worn out receiver. The ordering process was also very smooth. Kelsey took the time to explain the differences in the hitches before I made my decision! I Would recommend both etrailer and this hitch if you are looking to change out!

product is great. I don't have the chucking I had with my pervious hitch. I would have rated this 5 but I wasn't pleased with the condition that the product arrived. However the etrailer customer service was more then helpful with the issue. The damage was only cosmetic.

by:

No where in the description did it say the center mount under the 5th wheel plate that the pivot was mounted in rubber. Personably I like this but it a wear item not sure how long it will last( it looks heavy duty). It would have not changed my mine about purchasing it, It should help the ride and take the shock load out of the trailer to truck



- C16140
by:

Overall we are very happy with the hitch. We had a learning curve and it took a while for the product to sort of break in but it has worked well for us. The reason for 4 stars vs. 5 is: We were very unhappy with the way it was shipped. It was damaged but not so we could not use it. The packaging was destroyed and the product was dented and had to be painted due to all the scrapes. It arrived pretty beat up. Recently the safety pin chain broke and will have to be replaced. Braided cable might be a better option. The chain given was pretty weak for the abuse that it has to take.

Mixed reviews. I think I picked out a great hitch (Curt A29, part # C16140. Haven't installed it yet. Turns out the mounting system for my 2006 Chevrolet 2500HD 8' long bed isn't the right one (holes don't match up to the frame, only the one in the back for the lower bolt hole). Part number 16418. Emailed information to sales & this was the part recommended for my truck... Still can't install the part... Will have to drill holes both front holes (large & small...)... Doesn't math the video of the 2005 Chevrolet 2500 HD... Appreciate the videos, better than the written instructions included. Once done, hope to give it a 5 star. Will see what is recommended...



- C16140
by:

I'm happy with the performance of the hitch. The color indicator is added piece of mind that I'm doing things right. It did come with a few minor scratches from shipping and a few scratches most likely came from the factory. Like most 5th wheels they're heavy, so you won't want to carry it far without a dolly. I'm sure the poor UPS guy got a work out. The 7 blade in the box, above bed rails, and hitch were in in 3.5 hrs, but I have a hoist, which helps but not needed to get things installed. I can't express how helpful the installation videos were.



- C16140
by:

The quality of the product is what I expected, Excellent. I encountered the same problems with the packing as several others have. The exterior of my box was perfect, completely in tack. The problems were with the way the product was packed inside the box. The Styrofoam was destroyed along with the 1/8 inch thick piece of paneling, which allowed the right side leg of the hitch to bounce around and end up scratching the center member of the hitch, no bigger a little touch up paint couldn't fix. But, really people a 1/8 inch piece of paneling trying to contain a 140 pound hitch, lets start with a 1/4 inch piece of plywood and go up from there. Thank you.

by:

Very nice product.....had some initial installation parts issues that etrailer quickly resolved....I've got 18K pounds on this hitch and all is well, including a few steep grade up and downs.....trailer rides nicely in hitch with virtually no chucking....hitch height just fits under the bed cover and I can remove the hitch from the rails in two pieces by myself.... really satisfied....I'd recommend this product



- C16140
by:

The hitch is great . The only problem was shipping. When the order arrived the outer box was extremely beat-up. Upon opening, the inner box was so damaged it was not reconizable...the styrofoam was in pieces and the hitch paint was scratched-up. It was treated VERY badly in shipment...I took pictures and was going to forward to you but my phone crashed and that's when I learned my cloud back-up did not include my photos. I needed the hitch immediately for a trip, so I just installed it and chalked-it up as bad luck. With all that said, I owned Reese before but the Curt just seems more substantial



- C16140
by:

The Curt A20 steel construction looks real good. Simple to assemble and install on my standard rails . We plan to use it to tow our 5th wheel travel trailer to our winter destinations and back. We had a competitors hitch for the last five years and it was replaced under warranty once and several parts more often. major looseness was the issue. Not willing to put up with it anymore I did some surfing and bought a Curt A20.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • Why Recommend Fixed Hitch Over Sliding Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed and Trailer with Sidewinder
    While you can use a sliding fifth wheel hitch with a Sidewinder or Turning Point Pin Box, recommendations are made to try and provide the best solution for our customers. For someone with a short bed and a rotating turret, a fixed hitch is going to offer the best towing experience. Fixed hitches provide a better ride than sliding hitches and there is also the consideration of the hitch and what else it provides. For example, on a 2016 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory prep package,...

  • How To Choose the Correct Weight 5th Wheel Hitch for a 16K Trailer
    In regards to choosing the correct weight fifth wheel hitch, you'll need to be rated for at least a few thousand lbs above the fully loaded weight of the trailer. For example, if the trailer weighs around 16,000 lbs then you'll need a fifth wheel hitch rated for at least 20,000 lbs. For this, the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16140 is one of the best bang for your buck options. It has a dual interlocking jaw design for a tight grip and an easily removable hitch head.

    The Curt # C16140 A20 fifth wheel hitch you'd looked at is indeed compatible with the industry standard bed rails provided by the Ram factory bracket shown in the photo you provided. The slots shown on your adapter should measure about 22 inches fore/aft center to center.

  • Comparing The Curt Q20 To The Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Curt A20 # C16140 and Curt Q20 # C16130 are very similar 5th wheel hitches with the A20 being the more recent addition. The major difference is the A20 has interlocking jaws to further secure your king pin as opposed to the Q20 jaw locking system that do not interlock. This interlocking design is intended to give you more king pin contact on all sides for less jarring and chucking. The A20 also has less zerk fittings to grease and only requires 1 pin to be removed so that you can...

  • Is Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Compatible with Reese Revolution Pin Box
    Yes, the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140 referenced in your question is compatible with the 16K Reese Revolution Pin Box on your trailer. I do just recommend adding the Custom Wedge # C16992 to prevent the Revolution king pin from pivoting in the hitch. This will bolt right onto the Revolution and provide a much better fit for the Curt A20 than the universal wedge that may have come with the trailer. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on both of these products...

    Great question! We recommend having 5" of bed rail clearance at the very least. If your 5th wheel trailer is level with the Curt # C16906 legs installed and your 10" of clearance then there is no harm in having more height clearance. If you have to adjust the pin box on your 5th wheel trailer and your Curt A20 # C16140 on your 2018 Ram 2500 then you need to make sure you have at least 5" - 6" of bed rail clearance.

  • Which is Better Curt Q20 or A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The Curt A20 fifth wheel hitch part # C16140 is similar to the Q20 but has an upgraded head design so it's the better choice. Especially if the Montana you plan to tow has a Reese Revolution or Sidewinder pin box since the A20 is compatible with them and the Q20 is not. Also the A20 has a limited lifetime warranty and the Q20 has a 10 year warranty for the head.

  • Recommended Equipment to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer With 2018 Ram 2500 With 8 Foot Bed
    The best towing setup for your 2018 Ram 2500 with an 8 bed is going to consist of all the parts you mentioned - a fifth wheel hitch, base rails, suspension enhancement and a transmission cooler. The right fifth wheel hitch is going to be crucial and I highly recommend the Curt A20 # C16140 because it has a jaw system that is extremely secure and is simpler to use than many fifth-wheel hitches because of its color-coded indicator system.

If it is 2WD the capacity would be 22,900 lbs and if it is 4WD the capacity is 22,600 lbs; I do recommend verifying this with your local GMC dealer.

    Taking the head off of a Curt hitch like the A20 part # C16140 is not normally the recommended way to remove the hitch.

If you were looking for a hitch like this the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3705 would the way to go. It's head easily comes off to make the removal of the hitch a little more manageable.

  • Is a 2500 Truck Capable of Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
    To determine the maximum trailer weight you can tow with your truck, you will need to find both the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) and the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW). These figures can be located on the information tag inside the drivers door jamb. If you subtract the GVW from the GCWR, that will give you the maximum gross trailer weight (GTW) you can safely tow.

  • Are There Replacement Legs for Curt A20 Hitch Compatible with 2016 Ram Factory Pucks?
    For your 2016 Ram 3500, if you already have the Curt A20 hitch # C16140 then you will simply use the Curt OEM 5th Wheel Hitch Legs for Ram Towing Prep Package - 24,000 lbs # C16021. If you don't yet have the hitch then you will want the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16044.
