  • Which Vehicles Does The Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit
    The Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Replacement Head part # C16590 replaces the head on the Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package part # C16070 which fits 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 8 foot beds with the OEM puck system. It also fits 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 and 3500 with 8 foot beds and the OEM puck system. Curt has not released a slider base for the A30 yet for the short bed trucks (August 2019). If you let me know your year, make and model I can recommend...

  • Will the Curt A30 Head Fit Curt Q24 Legs/Base
    I do have an option but the Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Head part # C16590 will not work with Curt Q24 5th Wheel Legs due to the presence of a dowel pin that is only on the GM legs/base. However, you can use the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Head part # C16580. Therefore, if you have a Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch you can simply swap out the Q24 for the A25. The A-Series is much better than the Q-Series so even though you won't get much added capacity you will still see ride quality...

  • Will the Curt A30 Fifth Wheel Hitch Base C16590 Work With the C16025 Legs
    The Curt # C16025 legs will indeed work, but you'll be limited to the 25K capacity of the legs. Curt didn't rate the legs any higher than that, as that's what the pucks in your 2017 Silverado 3500 were rated for at that time.

  • Could Curt Hitch Head C16590 Fit Ram M30 OEM Hitch Base/Legs
    Curt makes the M30 fifth wheel hitch so yes the Curt A30 hitch head part # C16590 would fit its legs/base.

  • Replacement Head for Curt A30 5th Wheel Hitch
    Unfortunately, Curt doesn't offer just the head unit of their # C66HR A30 5th wheel hitch as a separate item, it's only available as a kit with the center section which we offer as part # C16590.

  • Will MOPAR M30 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Factory Pucks in Bed of 2018 Ram 2500 Truck
    Curt makes the M30 hitch for MOPAR. The hitch is compatible with the Ram Tow/Prep puck system, so it'll work just fine in the pucks in the bed of your 2018 Ram 2500. You can confirm this by measuring the center to center front to back and side to side spacing of the pucks in your bed. If they measure 39 inches apart side to side and 30-3/8 inches apart front to back on center, your friend's M30 MOPAR 5th wheel hitch will work great for you. Keep in mind, if you have a short bed truck,...

  • How To Upgrade to Curt A30 5th Wheel Hitch Head
    It sounds like you might be trying to upgrade to the Curt A30 5h Wheel Hitch Head and if that's the case I do have an option for you but this won't be possibly for an existing set of legs due to a dowel pin. If you want to use the Curt A30 then you'll have to go with part # C66HR which comes with the correct legs for this hitch head. There's also an option for the GM puck system, part # C16070.

  • Highest Rated 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2018 Ram 3500
    The highest rated fifth wheel hitch available for a 2018 Ram 3500 through Curt is 24,000 lbs using the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package part # C16046. The highest rated that we offer is 27,000 lbs using Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package part # RP37FR. The Mopar M30 5th Wheel Hitch uses a Curt head and Mopar base. We do offer the head (part # C16590) but not the base as this is only obtained through the dealer.

  • Difference Between # CU53FR and # C16024 Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Legs for 2020 GM Puck System
    The Curt # C16024 fifth wheel legs you mentioned fit the A series hitches from 20k and up; the A20 # C16540, A25 # C16580, and A30 # C16590. They're technically designed for the A30 because of the legs's 30,000 pound rating but they still fit the other two. With that in mind they will not, however, increase the weight capacity of the other 2 hitches. The # CU53FR legs fit all of the same hitches plus the Q Series and E Series hitches as well. These legs even fit the A30 however they are...

  • Fitment of Sidewinder Pin Box and MoPar M30 5th Wheel Hitch With Ram Box on 2020 Ram 2500
    Yes. You will need a Wedge Kit, # RP64FR too. Curt is the manufacturer of the Mopar branded 5th wheel trailer hitches. The Mopar M30 5th Wheel Hitch uses a Curt head and base specific for the Ram OEM Prep Package. The 5th wheel hitch head is the same as our part number, # C16590. You will want to use the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A-Series and E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP64FR on the Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin, # RP34FR that you linked to. Bolt this wedge onto...
