Difference Between Curt A25 and Q25 5th Wheel Hitches for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500


Could you please tell me the difference between the Curt A25 and Q25 5th wheel hitches. Many thanks.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16180 and the Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 are both fantastic hitches and extremely similar to each other. Both will provide a 25,000 pound towing weight capacity, an interlocking 2-Jaw system for a secure connection, and a 4 inch height adjustment.

The primary difference between the two models is that the A25 # C16180 is essentially an upgraded version of the Q25. The head on the A25 hitch is constructed of stronger material and addresses/resolves some of the potential issues that are on the Q25 with regards to head failure. I have attached a short video demonstration for the A25 on the 2016 Sierra 3500 that you can also check out.

For a custom rail kit on your 2017 Sierra 3500, I recommend the Curt # C16411-204. This kit includes custom-made brackets that will use existing holes on your truck's frame to minimize drilling and drastically reduce installation time. It is confirmed to fit your vehicle. I have included the written installation details that you can also take a look at.
