Recommended Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch For Use With Morryde Orbital Pin Box


Are curt fifth wheel hitches compatible with the morryde orbital pin boxes?


Expert Reply:

There are certain Curt hitches that are compatible with the Morryde Orbital pin box. For example the Curt A Series are compatible with a rotating pin box but the Q series Curt hitches are not because there is too much movement in the head. Since the orbital provides 90 degree turning clearance you will need a fixed hitch (not sliding).

It looks like you have a 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500, I recommend to use the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16180 with the rails part # C16411-204 if you do not have the OEM prep package in the truck. The A25 will provide 25,000 lbs of towing capacity and features a nice interlocking jaw design so you will not experience as much chucking/rattling that you would with some of the other brands.

If you have the OEM prep package, I recommend Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16066 which is the same hitch but will drop down into the OEM prep package and lock into place.
