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

No, if you:

  • Take the hitch in and out often and don't want to break your back to lift this whole thing out
  • Don't have the patience to perfectly level out your trailer when unhooking - the cushioned head can cause the jaws to bind up
  • Prefer American-made craftsmanship

A20 Two-Piece Interlocking JawA20 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, 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).

Shipping was fast for box 2/2. I believe I placed my order on June 30th and box 2/2 was delivered on July 2nd. Unfortunately box 2/2 was the only box that I had a tracking number for so I had to call etrailer. Even though this was an inconvenience the lady was super nice and helpful and ensured me box 1/2 would be at my home by the 6th of July and it was. The legs fit perfectly into the 2021 Ram puck system and was almost to easy to believe it was done correctly. The rest of the hitch bolted directly into place as described. I am more than happy with this product and for how easy it is to use it is definitely worth the price.


Comments
This hitch is amazing! I have hauled over 30 5th wheels the past year with this hitch ranging from 5k up to 20k. I have had no issues and just requires basic maintenance to ensure smooth hookup. The price has gone up on this since I purchased a year ago but if I was in the market for a 5th wheel plate for a new truck I would still purchase this exact setup and I would still use etrailer as the customer service is fantastic.

This is my first run-in with a fifth wheel, so I spent a lot of time researching as many of the aspects as I could. I knew I didn't want to mount bed rails, so the truck was outfitted with the factory in-bed mounts. That allowed the use of this hitch. Using this setup allows for a clear bed floor by merely unpinning and swiveling the four locks on the leg's ends, then lifting the whole mess up and away.
It arrived in two separate boxes: good thing, it's heavy! Knowing that, the individual pieces were placed in the bed where it could be assembled closer to its landing place. The instructions were very clear, and, before we knew it, we had the mount dropped into place.
Connecting to the trailer couldn't be easier. With the lever forward and the yellow dot showing through the status port in front, the truck slides back into place with a satisfying "chunk" as the hitch latches on. Drop the safety pin into the latch, make your connects, give one final tug with the tow vehicle so you know the hitch is properly latched, and off you go! Thanks, etrailer!

One-year update: weve now put over five thousnad miles on our eleven-thousand pound fiver, and have had zero issues with the hitch. thats with numerous hitch-unhitch cycles, and a few long, steep grades to pull. The hitch works just as well as the day we installed it. The only shortcoming is its shear weight when lifting it out of the bed. Fortunately, the hitch proper lifts out of the spider mount by simply pulling one pin. That way, it can be removed in two pieces. Its still a two-person job, but is manageable. Thanks again, etrailer!

My experience with etrailer was amazing. They helped me pick out the proper 5th wheel for my needs. RAM 3500 8’ bed dually!
The product shipped and arrived earlier than I expected.
The CURT A25 with the RAM prep package was an easy installation.
I could not be happier with my purchase and experience with etrailer.

It’s been about a year and I’ve hauled several different 5th wheel campers commercially and this hitch is performing great.

This 5th wheel hitch is AWESOME!!! It was as easy as the video to assemble and install. I put it together in the living room watching to Olympics. It is easy to install in the factory RAM puck system. You should use a buddy, it is a little heavy. It took about 30 to 40 minutes to put together and another 15 minutes to install and torque all the bolts to specs.


Comments
First tow with a heavy trailer went great. Easy to hook it up east to un-hook. No problems so far. Still 5 stars!

Easy to put together. It did require a couple washers between the hitch and the legs to get it to line up with the Ram pucks. Maybe a little over an 1/8th inch too narrow to set into all 4 holes at the same time.
We've had it 6-7 months, started off towing a 13.5k trailer with a solid pin box and are now towing a 16k trailer with a rotaflex pin box. Never had any issues with chucking on either one.
The jaws latch very positively, the status indicator as always been accurate(pull test every time we hitch).
My only two complaints are that it's started to rust in a few places, I wish they did a better job on the painting. And the arm to unlock the hitch is short. I'm 5'10" and need to use a step stool to reach over the dually to unlatch it.

Superior. My old Reese 16K served me well, but after 10 years of service including the AL-CAN highway, it creaked and moaned when loaded and banged around when not loaded. When I got a new truck that was 5th wheel prepped from the factory I chose the Curt hitch over the Reese, if for no other reason than it displayed first on the search list. I’m glad I did. First of all, the unit arrived in two heavy boxes. The boxes had a few dings, but were in pretty good condition. The contents of each box was packed well with styrofoam. None of the pieces sent to me were bent, broken or scratched. The instructions were pretty straightforward and easy to read. I’m 66 and completed the installation without assistance. I used the formula provided in the instructions to calculate the height of the assembly and the results were pretty much to my satisfaction. I did have to adjust the locking lugs and tighten each castle nut one notch to where there was a little resistance when locking. PROS: it’s solid, no wiggle; the head has a square rubber bumper the fits in the base that keeps the head from bouncing around when unloaded; coupling and locking indicators can easily be see from the cab and provide visual status of the jaws; interlocking double jaws. CONS: none at this time. I’m a happy camper.

Shipping was far quicker than I expected, and the etrailer shipping tracker is really nice. Installation/Assembly was pretty easy, although the Curt instructions could have been better. One tweak to the assembly process - I went ahead and inserted the legs into the pucks, unlocked, and then put the rest of the hitch together. Avoided have to lift the majority of the unit into place. As other people have mentioned, the leg assembly box takes a beating during shipping....not parts damaged. All in all, a happy purchase.

2014 Ram 3500

I have always had pretty good luck w Curt products! Product was was as described easy to install. Def heavy duty. Other posts were same, meaning boxes sustained heavy damage, but product inside was in great shape. Few scratches but no gonna change my review. Etrailer did price match so saved me some cash. Haven't pulled with it yet, just moved 40 ft camper around. May update later.




by:

Good design easy assembly easy installation and removal. I modified an engine hoist so I could install and remove the hitch by myself. At my age the size and weight of the hitch make manhandling it too awkward.




by:

This is a great hitch. To be completely transparent, this is my first (and so far only) 5th wheel hitch. Assembly was quick and easy with clear instructions included. The unit dropped right into the pucks on my bed, rotate the locking latches and done! Have over 2000 miles towing so far and no issues. RV dealer said it was a great choice.

Still working great a year later!

excellent fast service and the descriptions are very precise .. and very easy to assemble




by:

Excellent product I have used other hitches and this One is by far my favorite. No issues with hooking up and knowing that it is locked in and disconnecting is just as easy. Taking it in and out of the truck is manageable by myself with the ease taking it out in two parts.




by:

Works as it should! Easy to put on / take off! The only downside is also its upside - Heavy Duty! It comes apart in x2 pieces which is good due to its weight.




by:

So easy I let my wife back under the trailer. I like the way the jaws locks up like a semi when all the way in position.




by:

Purchased the Curt A25 to pull 18k fifth wheel, I do like it better than other ones I had. Solid built. No complaints.




by:

Very good hitch. this took a couple of hook ups/ unhooks to get it figured out as to the position of the RV height for easy hook / unhook but one year later we love it - easy on and easy off.




by:

This is a great hitch. It's easy to use, smooth operation and offers a great comfortable ride. It's easy to take apart and remove from my truck whenever I need to remove it and I can do it myself if I need to. I would highly recommend this hitch and Etrailer. The purchasing process was easy and the hitch showed up at my door step as expected. If I ever need to purchase a new 5th wheel hitch I would definitely repurchase this hitch.




by:

The hitch is exactly what i wanted. But just as important is the service i got from etrailer! My order was delivered sooner than promised - but i panicked only getting box 1 of 2. I called Donna to verify status and within 2 hours box 2 was delivered. Was able to put hitch together, get it installed in truck, and bring my 5th wheel home a week before i thought possible. Works like a dream. AWESOME PRODUCT AND SERVICE.




by:

First off the order was super easy and what a turnaround on time. Less than a week after I ordered it and it’s on my doorstep. Good price, information was spot on and they kept me informed of the progress. Could not be happier.




by:

installation, assembly, fit and finish were excellent. I use a turning point hitch so the lug can be difficult to position correctly in the hitch. This hitch worked great with the lug. Solid latch with no noise or movement on the road. I like the indicator that leaves no question as to whether the latch is closed. Lots of grease points insure long life.




by:

If you own a dually, or are under 6'4", you may find the hitch release arm impossible to reach without a ladder for climbing into the pick-up bed. The pin that secures the arm, likewise. Does anyone have this figured out yet?
Other than that, no problems, no unexpected quirks. A great hitch overall




by: 02/08/2022

Nice well made hitch latches in bed well have used about 15 to 20k miles. Only problem is it doesn’t latch and unlatch very well now have greased it and checked it over but sometimes it won’t latch when I back in also I can pull the lever and the jaws won’t let go




by:

Pretty straight forward installation. Note the legs are front and back, the cam locks are different sizes front to back. Heavy as heck for and old guy but breaking it down into the 3 component pieces made it manageable . Nice job on the install video.
