Can Curt A20 5th Wheel Head Unit Replace Curt Q20 Head Unit for Use With Sidewinder


I have a Curt Q20 hitch and my trailer has the Reese revolution hitch pin which can swivel. I can’t use the swivel with the Q20 but i hear it works with the A20. Can i swap my Q20 plate with one from an A20 so i can use the swivel feature?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I reached out to Curt about this, and what they told me was that the Q20 and A20 use different legs with different mounting, so the Head Unit for Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16540 will not fit on the Q20 legs.

So because the Q20 is not compatible with a Sidewinder, what you will need is to replace your Q20 with the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140.

You can certainly sell the Q20 to offset some of the cost of a new hitch, but the clearance benefits you get from the Sidewinder will absolutely be worth it. The only thing to keep in mind is that with a Sidewinder, you will need a wedge for the A20 hitch, the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A-Series and E-Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP64FR
