Will Curt Q20 Work With Lippert Turning Point Pin Box


how do I a hitch that will be compatible with the LCI Turning point pin box when it is in turning mode? have tentatively purchased the Curt Q20 but have heard that is not compatible with the turning point in turning mode. can i use the custom curt wedge with my curt q20 series hitch and the LTI turning point pin box.

There is a great option for a Curt 5th wheel hitch you can use with your Lippert Turning Point pin box, but the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16130 is not compatible. The reason is the head of the Q20 has what is called a "spherical axial bearing" which is really a fancy way of saying it pivots 360 degrees. This means it is not stable enough to work with a rotating pin box such as the Turning Point or a Sidewinder.

A very similar hitch that will work with your Turning Point pin box is the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140. Like the Q20, the A20 will give you a highly secure connection with your trailer's king pin because of its interlocking dual jaw system that wraps totally around your king pin.

It also has an easy-to-use indicator system which will let you know if the jaws on the hitch are ready to couple, uncouple or tow and is so durable it comes with a lifetime warranty.

All you need in order to use this with your Turning Point pin box is the Wedge for Curt A Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # C16992 and you're set! I have attached links to a couple video reviews of the A20 and wedge for you to check out as well.
