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

Yes, if you:

  • Struggle to see if your king pin is fully latched - color-coded system makes it easy to see from your cab
  • Go down washboard roads to get to your favorite campgrounds and need a little extra shock absorption to keep from feeling every bump
  • Take the hitch in and out often and like having nice handles on either side to make the base easier to lift out

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
  • Prefer the most heavy-duty option, even if it's more hitch than you really need
  • Would rather have an American-made hitch

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).

Still working perfectly. Easy to hook and unhook. I drive a tractor trailer and this fifth wheel releases easier that the one on my tractor trailer.

Two boxes del by UPS in good shape for the weight, I installed this myself, while still boxed I lifted into my Ram 2500 to handle easier, installed into my pucks then assembled the rest, went very well, the label they want you to put on driver side you can’t even read, let alone while holding in hand, we will be heading to the mountains of Colorado soon, we’ve always had a bumper pull till now, I’m sure this will work very well, this is 20K double jaw, thank you

Dodge Ram Pickup

I use this on a 2020 ram 2500, and love it! Hook up is easy and secure, making truck and trailer feel like one! I have not experienced any chucking, since I started using this! Only con is the weight like any 5th wheel hitch, once on truck, I leave installed for season.




by:

Only had one issue with the A20 and that was probably my fault. After the hitch had been installed about six months, when the jaws would not close. Sprayed the lock and spring assembly with some WD40 and it has worked fine ever since. If I'm in a lot of rain, I'll spray it down every couple of weeks. Great hitch and would hesitate to buy it again.

2019 Ram 3500

Purchased this Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs Item # C16044 to go in 2019 RAM 3500 DRW and tow 16,750# 40’ fifth wheel with 3,145# hitch weight. Newbie to 5th wheels and I haven’t taken delivery of the trailer yet so I set it in the highest position. Judging by how high it’s sitting I may have to let it down to the next setting. Easy assembly by myself although it is heavy. Seems well made. No adjustments needed to get it to sit in place. Came in 2 boxes and one was torn but nothing missing. Happy with it so far.




by:

Bought in conjunction with a Reese Sidewinder pin box and can say this hitch was easy to put together and is very heavy duty. Well made and easy to use and maintain! Dropped right in my Ram puck system with minimal adjustment required. Arrived on time.

2022 Ram 2500

I was in a pinch(bought new truck) needed a 5th wheel hitch fast. You came through. Within 5 days had my new hitch , just what we wanted, and made our trip within a day. Thank you. Good Quality!!! Fast Delivery




by:
2020 Ram 2500

Very impressed with this hitch . I was a little thrown off by how heavy it really is but it looks great and feels split . The head price is really smooth as it rolls around. It should really help with towing noised and chucking .




by:

Hitch was not delivered all together ( legs one day the head the next ) which delayed my trip. That was ups’s fault. Hitch is very good quality but very heavy!


Comments
Having trouble getting the locks that hold the hitch in the truck to be easy to open and close. Have had a popping noise when stopping and accelerating, found adjustments on tightness of latches needed adjustment. That cured the noise issue but the hitch is very hard to unlatch and remove from the truck. Called Curt about this issue they say that they have never heard that problem.

Very happy with etrailer and the purchase of Curt 20K fifth wheel hitch for my new Ram 3500 that fit perfectly in the factory fifth wheel prep package. etrailer customers service was helpful with questions about the shipment while in transit. The hitch came in two cartons and the assembly was straight forward with easy to follow instructions. The Curt hitch is a high quality well engendered device with well thought out features that should perform greatly for many years to come.

The install of the A20 Curt 5th wheel was flawless.
Your delivery of two days is amazing.
Included a picture of it in the back of my 3500 Ram.




by:

Ordered the Curt A20 with Ram OEM puck legs on Friday. etrailer stated shipping would be 3-5 days. The hitch arrived in perfect condition on Monday...simply amazing! The hitch was manageable by myself to install. It comes in 4 pieces: (2) legs, (1) cross member to connect the legs together, and then the hitch head itself. I assembled the legs first and easily lifted them into the bed. I took the hitch pin out of the bracket and installed the bracket with 4 bolts. I then inserted the hitched head back in and replaced the pin. Simple install and the hitch is nice and solid...and does not rattle due to the rubber dampening.




by:

This hitch is awesome! Easy to install and coupling and uncoupling is mistake proof with the easy to use color coded guide. Will continue to recommend this!




by:
2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

Very nice hitch, easy assembly. Haven’t had any problems hooking up, head has play so you don’t need to be perfect backing into hitch. Bought a ram 17 Cummins and this hitch to go with it at same time between the hitch and truck can’t tell the 12000 lbs camper is back there. Very little hitch noise. Easy and fast shipping also. The only complaint is the hitch is heavy! Make sure you have help to remove or install.


Comments
Went on 5-6 camping trips this year 2000ish miles no complaints. Never once thought I’d that latched. Installed eye hook and chain hoist in garage, hoist up back under, lower down into bed, fixed that problem of being heavy ha. I will continue to use etrailer for my trailer needs for sure good product and ships fast!

2022 Ram 3500

This was a real pain to get assembled and installed without any assistance. The assembly instructions for the legs has a list of compatible heads, and the A20 was not on that list, but it assembled just fine and Curt website said it was OK. Doing the assembly in the truck bed helped by loading in each of the parts and taking off the head, thus keeping the weight of each part minimal. It dropped right in to the pucks without issue, then I completed the final torqueing. I haven't towed with this yet so cannot comment on that part. I was rather perturbed to find out this was made in China. This needs to be stated in the description. I would not have bought it if I had known that.




by:
2018 Ram 3500

This hitch was extremely easy to install! Although the locking handle maneuvered slightly different than the Curt videos I saw online, the intuitive design made it a breeze to set up. As a first time 5th-wheeler, this product has exceeded my expectations so far.

I have not towed yet with this unit, but I feel confident that this product will be able to tow my 16k lb 5th wheel.




by:
2011 Dodge Ram Pickup

Towed about 8,000 mi pulling an 11,000 lb fifth wheel. No issues at all and it fit perfectly in my RAM 3500 bed.




by:
Dodge

This is a very good hitch. If connects to my dodge puck system very well. This hitch is much easier to hitch and unhitch than the other brand I had. My only issue is that it is supposed to separate into two pieces to make it easier to move. However, I have not yet been able to separate it.




by:

The Curt A20 has performed flawless over the last8 months of use. Easy to hitch & unhitch with no chucking. Excellent product in my opinion. Etrailer shipping was fast and pricing was fair!




by:
Dodge Ram Pickup

Wow. These guys rock. Got my hitch to me in 3 days. Installed my A20 in the Ram 3500 and it fit great. Jesse was my sales guy and was perfect to work with. These guys really understand the whole concept of customer service. Can't thank them enough. 40 minutes to install by myself. Done and ready. Thanks Etrailer.




by:

Never had a fifth wheel prior to this. We went with CURT after some research and considering cost. Very pleased. Install went well. works well. We like the color stickers - verifying the configuration of the hitch. Highly recommend. We even called CURT directly once when we thought it was not working but they guided us back on track.




by:

Use it to pull a 16,000 lbs fifth wheel. Works really well.




by:

Everything went as described. Don't believe they could have made an easier install. Will be hooking to 5th wheel for first time Saturday. Little heavy but was able to handle it. So easy to go together one man can do it without an extra hand helping. Work smart not hard!

The Hitch is great once you figure out the correct steps to put it all together. You should have information in the directions that has a link to a video that shows you step by step process to assemble the hitch. The directions are veg ( not dummy prof ) on step by step assembly. After we assembling the hitch it would not fit into the pucks in the truck correctly. So I went online and looked up a video on Curt A20 5th wheel hitch installation and viewed my obvious mistake. There are to many options in your directions, make a video.

  • Does Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16044 Fit 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
    For your 2015 Ram 3500 with the factory rail kit the Curt A20 fifth wheel hitch part # C16044 is the correct fit and would work well. It attaches directly to the 4 pucks that are to the outside of the gooseneck ball you have in your truck bed. This hitch is designed for an "underbed" rail kit which means the rails sit under the bed like what you have and not on top of the bed which takes up bed space.

  • Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch Mounting Hardware Positions
    On the Curt A20 5th wheel hitch # C16044 that fits the factory prep in your 2017 Ram 3500 the smaller nuts should be installed on the front legs that are closer to the cab and the larger ones to the rear, just as you had it. I did check with Curt just to be certain.

    For your 2017 Ram 3500 with an 8 foot bed, installing a 5th-wheel hitch so that the trailer king pin falls directly over or just slightly forward of the rear axle center point is ideal. For a 5th-wheel hitch that will mount directly to the puck system on your truck, I recommend the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16044. This is a great hitch that features an interlocking, 2-jaw system for a secure connection with the trailer and a towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds. It also has...

You would want to route the cable through the head of the hitch and through a stake pocket hole in the bed of the truck or any other closed loop like a tie down anchor.
