What is the Difference Between the Curt A25 and Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitches


5th wheel hitch . What is difference between Curt Q25 and Curt A25 hitches?


Expert Reply:

The main difference between the A25 and Q25 hitches is with the head of the actual hitch; the Curt A25 features a stronger head unit with better materials that's going to hold up better over time and the jaws have also been upgraded to provide a more secure connection with the trailer and allow for a smoother ride.

The head on the A25 can also be easily removed from the base by pulling just 1 pin, so getting the hitch out of the truck bed is more of a 1 person job. The Curt Q25 requires you to remove a couple pins and the head itself is a bit heavier, but it's not terribly inconvenient. The Curt A25 as a whole is lighter by about 15 pounds too which can make a difference if you're pulling it in and out of the truck frequently.

If your 2018 Ram 3500 has the factory puck package and an 8 foot long bed, then you'd want to use either the A25 # C16046 or Q25 # C16049. If you don't have the OEM prep package or have a short bed just let me know and I can let you know which models can be used.
