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 a trailer with a rotating pin box, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, or 5th Airborne Sidewinder
  • Prefer 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.

Fast shipping, relieved a day early. Assembly was simple, only struggle was with the weight of moving the pieces into place for assembly. Definitely a well built hitch. Easy operation when hooking up or removing from the trailer.




by:

Very good 5th wheel hitch, I really like the 360 degree of movement. It fits the Dodge puck system very well. It very well make, it’s built very heavy duty and easy to use. Could not be happier with it.




by:

Nice hitch but I only gave it average because of the assembly instruction. Although really nice booklets they are border line unsafe with the assembly.
Ineffective and unsafe use of lock and flat washers. Lock washers are a special type of washer that’s designed to create tension so that the bolts or nuts do not loosen or otherwise come out of its installed position. Lock washers aren’t flat for a reason. They feature a semi-coiled design that gradually rises and bite into something solid and stationary when compressed. This design allows lock washers to create tension when installed to prevent bolt or nut from unexpectedly loosen due to vibration and torque.
In the assembly instruction and also in the assembly video of the Q25 lock washer are used on top of flat washers. The flat washer prevents the lock washer from doing what it is intended to do above. This was true in the case of the 4 bolts use to attach leg assemblies to the Head support assembly. Also true with the 2 center cross support bolts.
The side leg assemblies are not marked passenger and driver side. Nor does the installation instruction clearly identify them. Yes, they will only fit in truck socket one way. But you knew that, right.
Which way do they go? The 4 retaining bolts that hold the leg assemblies to the head support assembly. The installation booklet shows them being installed from the outside with Teflon lock nuts, and washers on the inside of the head assembly. This method prevents an adequate torque of the nuts after installation. The assembly video shows the bolts with washer being installed from inside the head assembly with only nuts on the outside of the leg assemble.
Please have your engineers review and provide a corrected instruction so I may correct my hitch assembly.


Comments
In the instructions the legs are designated as the drivers side and the passenger side legs. When installing the hardware you will begin assembly with attaching the legs to the 5th wheel hitch head using the M14 bolts and M14 washers through the ed mounting holes and loosely secure them with the nylock nuts provided. Then install the bolts into the cross support weldment. Loosely attach the cross support weldment between the two assemblies with the provided M14 x 75 hex bolts, lock washers, and flat washers. Once all installed it allows the lock washers to work as intended.

Received the Curt Q25 Hitch this afternoon! Assembly was very easy taking approximately 30mins until the hitch was ready to be locked into the RAM Factory Puck System. Engineering design was well thought out, and locked into my 2020 RAM 3500 Dually perfectly. I was amazed with how easy it hooked up to my 5th Wheel Camper. Installing and removal of the Curt Q25 Hitch Setup is a breeze by yourself. I would purchase this hitch setup up all over again !

With the RAM compatible legs, the directions vary slightly than documented, but it is still fairly easy to figure out. Once assembled, install took 15 minutes, including puck adjustments to close the latches.

I am leery of ordering products online when I don’t know the seller. eTrailers service, shipping and follow up was outstanding. The shipping was fast and the delivery time was, (spot on). Would highly recommend them




by:

Installed in less than 30 mins. No Steel pins from head to base just 4 bolts. I saw a video of one being installed and it was the same model. Kinda worried about only having 4 bolts holding it together. Looks like the shippers had a rough time being gentle with it in transit.

2010 Dodge Ram Pickup

Hitch works great to all specifications as described. Has maintained its quality appearance to all the elements. Paint still holding strong, no rust, all polished metals still shines. Secures to my 2010 paradise point 5th wheel without any issues, user friendly to install to truck, fits perfect on my 2021 ram 2500 puck system.




by:

Review is for packaging and assembly ease only. It will be a couple months before we actually tow with it.

Package was pretty beat up but the hitch was intact and undamaged. It was delivered on time.

The assembly was straight forward and fairly simple. I put the legs and cross member together first. Then settled the legs into the pucks. I then loosely assembled the center section to the legs. Once assembled I then tightened the 6 bolts to XXX pound feet per instructions. Then I slid in the coupler to the complete the assembly. Note, be certain the large diameter cross pin is properly assembled into the bottom carrier and centered otherwise you will not get the caps on properly. While assembling the carrier and pin I did put a very thin layer of waterproof synthetic grease on a couple parts. I’ll graphite the jaws just prior to use.

The only reason why I didn’t give 5 stars is because I haven’t towed with it yet.

Camper is 16,000 loaded though I could have used a 20k hitch I went with the 25k for an abundance of caution.

Finally I did not grease the plate because I plan on using a plastic pad.




by:

Assembled and installed myself. Am experienced so would recommend an installer otherwise. 45 min finish time. Hauls smooth as butter without the usual creaks and groans of the old school hitches. Hooking and unhooking are simplified with the site aids built in. Big Thanks E Trailer and Curt.




by:

Best 5th wheel trailer hitch I've owned to date. It was easy to install and set up. Great value.

NO HAPPY THE LATCH MECHANISM THAT LOCKS IN PLACE IS NOT LOCKING ANYMORE AND YOU GUYS WONT WARRANTY IT I NOW NEED TO GO THRU CURT. YOU SHOULD STAND BEHIND YOUR PRODUCT FOR MORE THAN A YEAR


Comments
You mentioned that the latch mechanism is not locking into play anymore. I reached out to Curt who advised that it sounds like the unit will need to be lubricated. You can reference the manual for the lubrication instructions. If the unit has been dry for too long, then it can cause the latch mechanism to work incorrectly.

Had a great experience with a great product. So refreshing to see something actual works as advertised. The site said it would fit my truck, be under the rail line and that was exactly the case. It takes about thirty minutes of real work to install. Working alone, it took me an hour - counting all the breaks. The GREEN/RED/YELLOW indicator on the handle makes it simple to know when it's locked, unlocked or ready to lock... Looking forward to hooking up the Toy Hauler.




by:
2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

Hitch was easy to install. Be sure to assemble in the truck bed, because the hitch is very heavy. The product is very well made, and easy for camper hook up. The color indicators are very helpful. The pucks fit right into my 2017 3500 RAM.




by:

this 5th wheel hitch is outstanding. I'm very happy with this.

Just got the hitch installed. Very easy install and assembly in my 2018 Dodge Ram




by:

I am very happy with this 5th wheel hitch and etrailer Corporation. I originally had ordered a different hitch but was advised that there was a back order on that particular hitch so after contacting etrailer and speaking with Pat C we were able to work out a deal on the Q25 hitch. I have not gotten to tow with it yet but have installed it in my truck. This hitch is very heavy duty and you will probably need some assistance putting it together but with that said I am confident that this hitch will do the job I need it to do. I am very pleased with the customer service of etrailer and the quick delivery. I will definitely do business with them again.




by:

Ordered the Q25 on Monday and it arrived Friday as promised. The unit was very well packaged and there was no damage as I've read about in other reviews.

This went into my 2017 Ram 3500 long bed with the puck system. Installation was easy and took about 30 minutes working by myself. I had watched the installation videos prior to delivery.

The unit is very solid and appears well built. I'll be hooking up to my 38' Montana on Monday for the maiden voyage. I expect complete satisfaction.

Customer service from my first call through installation was fantastic! Coupled with the best price I could find I will forever be looking to eTrailer for my towing and trailer needs!




by:

5 Stars for both the step rails and the 5th Wheel hitch. The instructions that came with the products and the videos Etrailer made available on line made the install easy.




by:
2017 Ram 3500

This is a awesome hitch very easy to install, assembled it by myself in about 30 minutes. The drop in lock system is a great feature. The crew at retailer awesome and easy to deal with, fast shipping and great service.

Incredible service etrailer!!!
Just
purchased a new Ram 3500 for towing our 5th wheel. Before turning to etrailer I attempted to purchase a Mopar OME direct mount hitch. For three days Mopar dealers never returned my calls or emails. Finally last Tuesday I called etrailed at 8:00 pm, what a surprise! Kyle answered and 10 minutes later I had a Kurt direct mount hitch ordered. It shipped the next morning and delivered Friday. Fantastic service.

I’ll send photos soon
e-trailer has my business from now on.

    Good question and there are a couple of important differences between the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16046 and Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16049. The first difference is the jaw system, as you can see in the accompanying photo I made which shows them side-by-side.

The Q25 # C16049 uses a spherical axial bearing that allows the hitch to have a 360 degree pivot and a double jaw hinge. The way the head pivots makes it a little easier to hook up the fifth wheel on terrain that isn't perfectly flat, but the pivot means that the hitch isn't compatible with rotating pin boxes...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Height for Clearance Between Bed Rails and Underside of Trailer
    It sounds to me like you're right about your trailer not sitting level. And you'll have about 7 inches of clearance between the truck's bed rails and the underside of your trailer. If you go with a hitch that sits lower, like the Curt # C16049 a minimum height of 14 inches, you still can only gain about an inch before you start to sacrifice clearance because you'll want about 6 inches. Unfortunately, there isn't a great option for you to have your trailer level and keep the trailer off...

The height you want to use is the height that allows your trailer to set as level as possible when loaded as well as still gives you at least 6 inches of clearance from the trailer overhang to the bed rails. I can't tell you which setting will work since I don't know the height of your truck bed relative to the pin box...
