Secure, Two-Piece Jaw

Q20 Two-Piece Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, two-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


Three-Point Indicator System

Get peace of mind with Curt's color-coded lock indicator. Just look at the indicator - either the one on the handle or the one on the hitch itself - to determine whether the jaw is in the correct position to uncouple (red), couple (yellow) or tow (green).


Q20 Color Indicator System

360-Degree Pivot

Curt's unique spherical axial bearing provides a durable pivot point that allows easy, 360-degree movement of the hitch head. This ball joint is designed for smooth, quiet operation with less clunking and chucking.


Note: Curt Q-Series fifth-wheel hitches are not compatible with Sidewinder or Revolution king pins. The extra movement of these cushioned hitches keeps the Sidewinder from functioning properly.

Received hitch as ordered. Assembly and installation was simple , took approximately 30 minutes. Only issue was the shipping carton was damaged and some scratching of finish occurred during the shipping. 193294


Comments

Product works great, price was fair and tows well. Removing from the truck is siple as the unit can be removed in two pieces making the weight more manageable.

I purchased this hitch when I upgraded trucks. I now have a long bed and have no need for the old DrawTite slider I used in my shortbed. WOW what a difference in towing this hitch made. Just completed a 12 hr pull from Oklahoma to Colorado and this hitch along with my TrailRide kingpin box made the ride so smooth it was easy to forget the 5er was even there. Easy/secure connection. Absolutely NO king pin rattle or chucking like my old DrawTite. Uncoupling took me a few tries, but i figured it out. The king pin has to be at just the right height to allow disengagement. Like others have mentioned, the box it came in was trashed, but the contents were unharmed; not even a scratch. Its a heavy item for carboard and who cares what the box looks like. It just gets thrown away anyhow. Would ABSOLUTELY recommended! !!!!!! Great product. 47108

So far, I rate working with etrailer folks as excellent. I can't say that about the package for shipping. It was a mess--think of a hard boiled egg that has been dropped and rolled on the floor. The box resembled the shell of that egg! Some minor scarring which I repainted to prevent any rust forming. The legs were literally bouncing around in the box which caused the scarring. I haven't used the hitch yet but from all appearance it will do a great job. I did hook and unhook from the 5th wheel with no problem. Bill S 125386

I ordered the Curt Q20 hitch. The unit arrived exactly when they said it would and in excellent condition. None of the parts were missing and the instructions were well written and easy to follow. I assembled the hitch in the bed of the truck in about 1 hour. It was very easy to put together even though I had never assembled one before. Unless you have some friends to help I recommend assembly in the bed of the truck since the hitch weighs 130 lbs. assembled. All in all I am very pleased with the hitch and the purchase. 247294

Hitch arrived in excellent condition. Had been backordered, but it arrived sooner than expected. As always Etrailer's staff is more than helpful and pleasant. Price match made it an extremely good deal. Haven't towed with it yet, but going this weekend and I don't expect to be anything but happy with it. Etrailer is now my go-to source for anything towing - 251788

Ordered the Q20 curt hitch, Great product, came as expected and installed as easy as the video described. Cost savings for the hitch and install kit was around 200.00. Priced the install it too was around 400.00! Overall savings around 600.00! Will use etrailer again and will refer others to shop etrailer for their trailing products! Thanks George! 232001

i have not got this installed yet because i am waiting on missing parts.looks great and high quality. Curt mfg. needs to put this in a better box, by the time it got to my location the box was torn and parts were missing . the outside of the box said that the box is reusable, mine is not. just need a stronger box for shipping 194318

Ordered during etrailer's free shipping promotion. Got my order quicker than anticipated. The box that tries to contain the hitch is pretty humble, but all the parts/pieces seem to be here. That is what is important. As other's have said, we didn't order the box, but the contents. 256105

Very easy install for me. The Q20 is replacing an older hitch so the rails are already installed. The Q20 was very easy to assemble, but if you need the lowest position, tightening the bolts can be a challenge. 220313

Dodge Ram 2500

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


Melinda at was great and help select the best hitch solution for my needs. Hitch arrived exactly when promised. Hitch itself appears to be solidly built. Some minor irritations like the locking pin cables crimped so hard that the cables were cut in two on two of the four leg pins. Will have to do my own anchors for those. Also packaging, as noted in other reviews, is pretty weak. After opening I understand why the whole box was wrapped in shrink wrap. Looked like a war was conducted inside with piece parts scattered to the winds. Shrink wrap kept it all inside thankfully Install was straight forward, and went in easy with two people. Could be a little challenging for one person. Hitch now resides on a RAM 2500 8ft with 5th wheel OEM prep. 5th wheel gets picked up next week. 203293


Comments

So far, this hitch has been absolutely trouble free. The two piece design makes for a uick and easy removal or install when I need the bed to be free of restrictions ! Happy camper

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


Juanita was terrific to work with on selecting my first 5th Wheel hitch for my first 5th Wheel. The Curt Q20 for the Dodge Ram factory tow package (pucks) was a cinch to put together and install. Bargain price and Worked flawlessly. Now if my backing skills were a little better, all would be right with the world. Practice, Practice, Practice...... Top recommendations for the Curt Q20 and etrailer.com!!! 213623

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


Thank-you etrailer for the fast free shipping! Ordered on Sunday evening and received hitch, mounting kit, and wiring package on Friday!!!! 5 boxes in delivery and all were received at the same time, great job. already tow 5th wheel with this hitch and it is great. Better than my old reese. Hook-up is easy and positve. Will say it does take all evening to install and measurements are extremly important to a good installation. Measured and checked square several times prior to any drilling and the mounting brackets are perfect. Thanks again for the fast, complete, and quality shipment. The only comment regarding shipment is that the hitch box had some damage when received and 5th wheel had a couple of same scratches, no big deal!!! The shipping box is not very durable based on product weight! 192850

Saved myself about $150 buying this online from Etrailer instead of my local rv/camping shop. My hitch arrived on time. The boxes were tore up but the website warned me about that ahead of time. Packaging wasn't an issue as all items were inside and intact. Assembly was simple and I had plenty of help from all the instructional videos I found on YouTube. Great hitch and I highly recommend that you purchase your new hitch from Etrailer. 232806

The 5th wheel hitch and all necessary components to install it on my 99 Ford were received in 2 days. Everything fit as designed. I must admit it took me a little longer than 1 hour as advertised, but the install went well with no problems encountered. The customer service provided by eTrailer is outstanding. The website, instructions, videos, and personal involvement of their techs is excellent. Thank you Nichole for your personal involvement and the research you did for me, in helping me make the right choices. 34448

The shipping was amazingly fast and complete. The installation was a bit challenging ,especially trying to torque the nuts to bed rails on my specific vehicle. But once finished, very pleased with the results. I got to tow with it a week and a half after installation and it handled my fifth wheel great. Very easy to lock it to king pin secure lever, hookup and go. Your support staff was very helpful with my questions. Thank you for the great product and price. 236081

Part of my order was not in stock but they sent out the hitch and didn't make me wait for other part. They have always kept me informed on my other part with email and or call. 237992

My curt c16530-16021 has been a great 5th wheel hitch. It's worked flawlessly over the last year which we traveled extensively hooking and unhooking several times a week. The absolute best thing about this hitch is the ease of installation in the bed, of course you have to have the Dodge Ram 5th wheel bed option. Release the puck locks and it slips directly into the bed frame, close the puck locks and your ready to go about a 5 minute job. 252770

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • Comparing the CURT Q20 and Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • The CURT 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16130, is a good trailer hitch. It features a 2-jaw system that is very secure and it has a unique pivoting head which allows for a more comfortable ride. It is on par with the rest of the pack in terms of performance and quality. It will fit in CURT, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Pro Series, Reese and Valley above the bed 5th wheel rails. However, the Reese Elite Series, like # RP30142, is in league of its own. The main benefits of this hitch are the...

The install will be the exact same for the 2015 model as it will for the 2014 that is in the video. For a 20k hitch to fit those rails I would recommend the Curt Q20 hitch part # C16130.

  • When is a Slider Hitch Required for Fifth Wheel Trailer Towing
  • Depends on the length of the bed of your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. If you have a 6 foot bed you would need a slider hitch to make 90 degree turns like the Curt Q20 Hitch part # C16536. If you have an 8 foot bed you would not need a slider to make 90 degree turns so for a similar stationary hitch you would want the Curt Q20 hitch part # C16130. For more information on fifth wheel towing check out the links I attached. For a rail installation kit to install the hitch in the bed...

  • Comparing the Reese R16 and Husky 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Hands down I would go with the Reese R16, # RP30866 for a fixed or # RP30869 for a slider. It is a higher quality hitch with a more secure jaw connection when compared to the Husky 16K hitches, # HT31326-31314 for a fixed or # HT31326-31196 for a slider. You would use a slider on a short bed truck to be able to make tight turns without hitting the truck cab against the trailer. I have included some links to video reviews on these hitches for you.

  • How to Close the Jaws on a Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch When Not In Use
  • You can close the jaws on the Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch # C16130 so you can secure it with a lock such as # 37DAT. Grab a tool from your garage such as a heavy duty wrench, hammer or even a 10-12 inch pipe or something that you can grip from the top and will have a bottom width base area of an inch or two. Once the jaws are free of any objects, especially your hands, take a tool and act as if you are hooking up your 5th wheel trailer and proceed toward the jaws. Once you go far enough,...

This adapter will lock into a Curt Double-Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitches (C-60 and C-600 series). The adapter provides bed rails for a fifth wheel hitch that uses industry standard bed rails like Reese, Curt, Draw-Tite, Valley or Husky. The Curt Q20, part # C16130 would be a good choice. The hitch has a 20,000 lb capacity and a...

  • Which Truck and Fifth Wheel Do you Recommend for a 35-37 Foot Trailer
  • With a fifth wheel of that length, I would go with at least a 3/4 Ton Pickup, like a Ford F-250, Dodge Ram 2500 or GMC/Chevy 2500. Diesels will almost always have a greater towing capacity as they have such large torque outputs and they are built with heavier transmissions. I would strongly recommend, whatever truck you choose, to get an 8 foot bed. A 6-1/2 or 6 foot bed would require the use of a slider fifth wheel hitch. An 8 foot bed will require less parts and it will be simpler to...

  • How is the Height Adjustment Measured on the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • When measuring the height of a 5th wheel hitch it would be from the top of the truck bed corrugations to the top of the head. The Q20, # C16130, is height adjustable from 13 to 17 inches. Since the X5, # 16310, sets in a gooseneck ball hole but the rails would be no higher than regular rails, it does not add height. To get the proper height setting you would need to know the distance from the top of the bed side rails to the bottom of the trailer overhang. You need 5 or 6 inches of space...

  • Will a Sidewinder Replacement Pin Box Work with the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch, while an excellent fifth wheel trailer hitch with a locking jaw and 3 point indicator system, does not have a wedge available. We do not recommend using a sidewinder with a Q20 hitch because it is cushioned and the Sidewinder wedge wears out the rubber bushing in the hitch head. If your truck has an 8 foot bed, you could change out the sidewinder and keep the Curt Q5. If your truck bed is 6 foot or shorter, a sidewinder is a necessity, so in that case,...

  • Will the CURT Q20 5TH Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit in Reese Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Rails
  • The Curt Q5 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16130 will sit in Reese, Curt, Draw-Tite, and Hidden hitch rails. If you have rails made by any of these manufacturers, the Curt hitch should install without any problems.

  • No Drill Fifth Wheel Rail Install Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • There are holes in the frame of your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 that the Curt fifth wheel install kit part # C16413-204 is designed to fit. That is why there is no drilling required to install this kit. You will still need to drill through the truck bed. But that would be it. I attached an install video for this rail kit for you to check out as well. For a fifth wheel hitch the Curt Q20 part # C16130 that you referenced would be an excellent choice as well.

  • Fifth Wheel Tailgate and Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ram 2500 Crew Cab
  • It is always recommended to use a like style hitch for your trailer; fifth wheel hitch for fifth wheel trailer and gooseneck hitch for gooseneck trailer. Using a standard adapter like the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter, # CAB-C5G, can cause added stress for the trailer frame and hitch which could potentially void the frame warranty on your trailer. In addition, even if you were to use an adapter, you would not have sufficient clearance to complete the hitching/unhitching...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch or Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation
  • Personally I like the Reese (Draw Tite) fifth wheel hitches more than the Curts. The Curt hitches are great hitches, but in our experiences here we have found that the Reese hitches tend to be a bit more durable. For a 20k hitch that I can guarantee you will be happy with I would recommend the Reese Select Hitch part # RP30081. The jaw design on this hitch is a forged, single-piece, self-latching jaw that wraps around the king pin to ensure proper connection. This design offers superior...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Installed on an International 4300 Truck with a Utility Service Bed
  • It is possible to install a 5th wheel hitch in a truck that has a service bed depending on the type of service bed. If the service bed is the type that has all the doors and storage on the sides and is much larger than a regular side rails on a truck bed, you will not be able to install a 5th wheel hitch. If the service bed is more like a flat bed, it is possible to install a hitch. It would be a custom installation that would have to be performed by a qualified professional. The hitch...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab
  • Yes, the Curt custom 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit # C16420-204 will fit a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab. I checked with Curt to confirm this. I have also included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. This kit will work on short and long beds. If you have a long bed I recommend the Curt 20K hitch # C16130. It has a double jaw and 360 degree cushioned head. If you have a short bed, go with the slider version # C16536.

  • Differences Between Curt And Reese 20K Fifth Wheel Hitches For 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 8 Ft Bed
  • There are a few differences between the Curt and the Reese fifth wheel hitches. I am comparing the 20,000 lb hitches, the Curt is part # C16130, and the Reese is part # RP30081. Both are good hitches but do have some differences to take note of. Both have custom installation brackets available. The Curt hitch has a vertical load limit of 4,000 lbs, and a height adjustment between 13 to 17 inches, where the Reese hitch has a vertical load limit of 5,000 lbs and a height adjustment from...

  • Will Curt Custom 5th Wheel Install Kit Fit a 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 Diesel Dually
  • Curt 5th wheel installation kit # C16413-204 is indeed a fit for your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 diesel dually. To show you exactly how and where it mounts take a look at the video I have linked for as well as the instructions I linked. The frame brackets do attach to holes that are already present on the truck's frame. If you have a long bed truck I recommend Curt Q20 hitch # C16130 and for a short bed the slider version is # C16536. The Curt Q20 hitches feature a full floating head for ease...

  • Is the Curt Q20 Hitch Compatible with a MOR/ryde Pin Box

  • Installation instructions for the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500
  • To determine the mounting location for the brackets and rails in the bed of your 2003 Dodge Ram 3500, you will need to measure 28-3/8 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed towards the truck cab. This will be the location of the rear most edge of the rear rail. This measurement will get you started and from there you will need to follow the installation instructions that come with the hitch. For the 2003 Dodge 3500 you can use the CURT Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Setup Recommendation for a Quiet Ride in a Short Bed Truck
  • For a quiet slider fifth wheel I would recommend you get the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Slider # C16636. This is a cushioned hitch that has a 360 pivoting head and a 2 jaw locking system that provides excellent king pin contact to minimize movement. If you want the absolute quietest setup I would recommend you install a Sidewinder pin box on your trailer and then use a fixed fifth wheel hitch. This would be much quieter than any sliding hitch and would not require you to get out of your vehicle...

  • Recommended Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Factory Pucks In The Bed
  • It would not be a bad idea to use a 20,000 hitch like the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16536 with an adapter that fits in the pucks of your truck bed. The adapter I recommend to use with the Curt slider is part # C16022. This fits in the pucks and provides a base that the Q20 will work well with the Q20. The slider has a travel of 12 inches front to back and you want to make sure you have enough clearance when towing your fifth wheel. You can use the following formula to...

  • Installation Kit for a 5th Wheel in a 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Long Bed

The Curt E5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Roller - Slide Bar Jaw, part # 16516, that you reference is basically designed for a short bed, however, you can use it on your long bed, but, it is very unlikely that you will need to use the sliding feature of the hitch to make 90 degree...

I included a picture showing the locations for you. to access the one between the jaws you will need to have the jaws closed. Black graphite grease is recommended for the jaw pins and the lower bearing assembly jaw. You can use a regular manual grease gun such as # L30200 if you do not have one. Next, if you...
