Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Struggle to see if your king pin is fully latched - color-coded system makes it easy to see from your cab
  • Go down washboard roads to get to your favorite campgrounds and need a little extra shock absorption to keep from feeling every bump

No, if you:

  • Don't have the patience to perfectly level out your trailer when unhooking - the cushioned head can cause the jaws to bind up
  • Have a hard time lifting heavy stuff by yourself - even though the head comes off, the base is still about 100 lbs on its own
  • Prefer American-made craftsmanship

Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A20 Two-Piece Interlocking JawA20 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, 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

A25 Color 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).

Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ford Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs - C16036

Hitch has worked great so far. Install took about 10 minutes in the Ford puck system. Height adjustment took about 2 hours, I started with the hitch at the top position, then moved to bottom, then moved to 2nd from the top for final. You just won't know where you want it until you hook up, tow it a mile, come back on level ground and check where you are at. Don't forget to retorque the bolts once a year, have had zero problems with hitch after a year. One thing of note, if you uneven raise/lower sometimes the hitch latch will not lock/unlock. if this happens, make sure your coach is as level as you can get it at the front. (3,500 miles towed, F450, Pinnacle 18k, tandem tow Seaark 2,400 lbs)

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I haven't used the hitch yet, but while installing it I noticed:
1) the 4 bolts which connect the hitch head to its legs, or base boxes, are a smaller diameter than the 8 bolts that hold the pin box onto my 40' 5th wheel trailer, and
2) when mounting the legs into the 5th wheel prep package on my 2019 F350, I found that a snug adjustment is not possible, because of one or both of these design choices: a) coarse thread bolts are used here (vs. fine thread), and/or b) there is only one hole through each of the 4 base mounting bolts for the cotter pin to go through, so the castle nuts can only be made tighter or looser by turning the nut 1/6th of a revolution.
This means that when you lock the hitch down by rotating the handles 90 degrees, that the locked-in position either feels too loose or too tight because 1/6th of a revolution of the nut is too much. If these bolts had a 2nd hole in them (or were fine thread) that would allow a 1/12th of a nut rotation adjustment. Smaller nut height adjustment would also mean a much greater potential of being able to adjust the locking levers to a firm pressure setting.

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I received two packages and one package was damaged BUT no damage to components inside. I put the hitch together and installed it in truck everything was in boxes and there was no damage or scratches on all components. I haven't towed my rig yet BUT I did couple & uncouple it, everything seems smooth and really quiet couldn't even hear when it latched so for very impressed can't wait to tow. I give it a 4 star rating only because I haven't towed yet will be back in touch.

Update on my hitch. I am very please with this product. its been about a year since I purchase, towed my rig several times and the hitch works great. Coupling and uncoupling is very smooth. the hitch is very compact and takes a lot less room the others I have seen.I give this product a 5 star rating and Im very pleased.
Kermit - 10/08/2020


Absolutely perfect service and product. I would never buy from anyone else for all my trailer needs.

This product is one of the finest investments I’ve made for towing our fifth wheel. It is a quality product with safety in mind. It’s so easy to latch and unlatch and the peace of mind knowing you camper is secure is priceless.
Gary - 12/16/2022


It arrived on time as you said it would with no damage to the product. Assembled and installed in about a hour. Would of been quicker but had to make some adjustment on one of the pucks. Haven't hooked it to my fifth wheel yet but I upgraded for a 16k to the 24k and but the handle works very easy. I had concern if the hitch would go over my goose neck ball and it does with about a 1" clearance. Very happy with this hitch.


The chain that holds the locking pin is very weak, I had to change out to a better ring and chain. It kept falling off the ring. It’s a good hitch, my pull right seemed easier to work.

Ford Flex

Love the hitch it's rated for high strength but isn't overly big and bulky and doesn't take up a ton of room in the fits into the bed pucks easy and locks down nice and tight with no flex or loosness in the pucks or gaps to create possible vibrations or noise when towing...
Thanks Derek for hooking me after being back ordered but getting it to me ahead of schedule after letting you no I had a prescheduled trip within 2 weeks and you had to me with a week...headed out next week looking forward to see how the new truck and hitch set up works...
Thank you for all you help...


Absolutely love this hitch! No more loud clunks and squeaks with trailer attached. Head pivots easily side to side making it a breeze hooking up, even if your truck is on an incline, or tilted at an angle. By removing the head(pull 1 pin), any normal sized human being can easily remove the hitch from the truck. The base is still a bit heavy, but nothing like my previous hitch. I would happily recommend this hitch to anyone!

Ford F-450 Super Duty

Fit my F-450 perfectly. Margin is critical when towing my 40’ 5th wheel. This hitch provides plenty.


Excellent product. Easy to order, delivered as expected and performs without a hitch! (No pun intended) …
I transport RVs and horse trailers over 51,000 miles between February - December 2021. This hitch is easy to install and remove when not needed. It is a workhorse and has never failed. I have not had any issues and am fully satisfied with this hitch. I highly recommend if your in the market for a hitch Curt is the brand you can depend on.


Great for the money very sturdy we pull our 16,000 lb 5th wheel with it no issues. Just a tip, grease the 2 grease fitting on the jaw regularly to keep them operating smoothly.

2020 Ford F-450 Super Duty

Well made hitch. Easy to assemble. Easy to install. Mine had a few scratches from shipping process, but none in the vital areas and nothing that would be seen after assembled. Customer service was excellent to deal with throughout the order process. Shipping time was acceptable even in these rough times. I would most certainly recommend this hitch, and to purchase through They won't let you down.

One year in and hitch is holding up great. No issues to be noted, rock solid as you would expect. During this past year, it has become apparent that there are some additionally useful features that nobody writes about, such as the plate pulls free of the base for easy removal. I have multiple trailers and volley between fifth wheel and goose neck often, so this has been a very good design for removal and installation.
Khris W - 08/20/2021


Very disappointed with this product. The product doesn’t seem to be of the quality that I expected for the price. I have not used this hitch yet, but I can almost guarantee that it will be very noisy while stopping or accelerating. Mount from the head piece to the base seems very flimsy.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. This hitch as an interlocking 2-jaw systems that provides a 360-degree jaw to king pin contact that provides less rattle and more security then the slide bar models. It also has a fully articulating torsion head for controlled coupling and a stable, quiet ride.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 12/28/2021


Great hitch. Pulls our 18k lb 5th wheel with no issues. Hook/unhook is very easy.


Really love the hitch. Very easy to install and remove from truck bed. Easy to hook 5th wheel up.

2012 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

I got it put together and installed by myself in about 40 minuets. I haven’t hauled with it yet but it seems to be good quality. Looking forward to pulling my 36’ camper with it in a couple weeks.

Ford F-350 Super Duty

Really like this hitch. Breaking it down into two pieces makes it much easier to move in and out of the bed by myself. Works well with my '20 F350 factory 5th wheel prep. Need be be pretty accurate centering the king pin to get it to latch up. Helps to have a CHMSL camera on my truck. I use this hitch to pull a 37' Chaparral 5th wheel (10.5 K lbs. empty weight).


Pros: fairly lightweight, easy to install / remove, good adjustment capability, easy to know it is hitched with the green indicator, wrap around jaws, affordable vs other brands, relatively small footprint for storage

Cons: none really, I guess if I was nitpicking, the wraparound jaws can sometime make it difficult to disengage the pin when trying to unhitch.

not good at all


So far it has not let me down. Easy to connect and lock in place. Seems very secure. Over 3000 miles of towing 26000 pounds and no problems.


Not tall enough for a 2018 f350 4x4...also have had issues with jaws locking in very cold weather...not sure of issue, handel goes into lock position, but when trailer is pulled, it drops right out...will be getting a different set up soon. I have tried all kind of different lubes....all three times the handel was showing latched ....and I also have a issue from time to time getting it to release, I am in the towing business and I can assure you, I'm not the only one with these next one will be a B&W hands down...I know you deal with a lot of let's say different customers....but I really have nothing good to say about this hitch....other than easy mount, but with the puck system which one isnt....I had used a rease 16k for yrs without the first hiccup also....but bed rails being obsolete now and needing a bigger rating ....made me upgrade, so I thought....but yes the jaws do tend to stck...not a fan...just being honest...


Got some great customer service from Jenny B!
Not only did she perfectly match the product with my vehicle, she found the best alternative product for less money!

Still working as advertised!

  • Installing the Curt A25 # C16036 on a 2017 Ford F-350 8' Bed with Bed Rug
    If the Bed Rug that you installed on your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty sits higher than the pucks on your 8' bed then you may need to cut out around the pucks a little bit. If your Bed Rug sits flush or lower than the pucks on your F-350 then the Curt A25 # C16036 will install directly without any modification.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for Factory Puck System on 2015 Ford F-450
    I recommend using the Curt A25 # C16036 which will fit in the factory pucks on your 2015 Ford F-450 since this doesn't include the wiring that you don't need and will give you a nice hitch at a good price point. The A25 hitch heads are fully articulating, which make for easier hookup and they also do a good job of cushioning road shock. I've linked a short review video of this hitch for you to have a look at.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-250 Short Bed and Trailer with MORryde Orbital Pin Box
    Since the fifth-wheel trailer you plan on pulling is equipped with the MORryde Orbital Pin Box you don't need to have a sliding hitch that would typically be needed on short bed trucks like your 2019 Ford F-250 so that you can have the required cab clearance during tight turns. This is because the Orbital Pin Box will move the pivot point back from the king pin to provide this clearance. With this in mind, the hitch I recommend for your 2018 Ford F-250 that is equipped with the factory...

  • Curt Q24 Hitch Head Seems Has Metal To Metal Contact On Passenger Side When Towing Trailer
    The side to side movement of the head on Item # C16036 pivots on a pin so there is no bolt that can be tightened. I would check to see if the bushing has fallen out. There should be a loop that doesn't allow the head to over pivot and a composite bushing to cushion it so there is no metal on metal contact.

  • Does Hitch Ball Height Need to be Factored When Picking Out Rise/Drop Ball Mount
    Our ball mount rise/drops listed factor in the height of the hitch balls so if you pick out the ball mount with the correct 3/4 inch rise that you need the ball mount height would be spot-on. So we have the Draw Tite part # 2923 which fits a 2 inch hitch and has the 3/4 inch rise that you need. Oddly enough there isn't a ball mount that has a zero rise/drop.

  • Is Curt A25 Fifth Wheel Hitch Better than Curt Q25 for 2019 Ford F-350 with Rail Kit
    Overall the A25 Curt Hitch for Ford Rail Kit part # C16036 is better than the Q24 # C16039 so it's definitely the way to go. The A Series is considered the upgraded and improved Q Series essentially. The big advantage is A series has an interlocking jaw design which holds the king pin very tightly for minimal movement which translates into a smoother and quieter ride when towing. The jaws of the Q Series press together but they do not interlock. See picture. The bearings in the head and...

    A rotating pin box like the Lippert Turning Point will relocate the pivot point between the hitch and pin box 22 inches rearward, from the point where the king pin locks into the hitch jaws to the point where the pin box turret attaches to the 5th wheel.

  • Lower Hitch Height That Fits 2015 Ford F-250 OEM Rail Kit
    Going from a slider base to a fixed leg base for your fifth wheel hitch won't give you a noticeable reduction in height to the point your trailer would no longer be quite nose high. Also there isn't a way to convert your current hitch to fit to the OEM rail kit directly to reduce height either. A hitch solution that would sit lower is the Curt A25 part # C16036 which has an adjustable height of 13-17 inches and has a really great jaw design.
