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

Yes, if you:

  • Have a third brake light camera to see the color-coded latch indicators so you don't have to get in and out of your truck when hooking up
  • 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:

  • Have a trailer with a rotating pin box, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, or 5th Airborne Sidewinder
  • Prefer an American-made hitch

Secure, Two-Piece Jaw

Q24 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).

Q24 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.

Received the Curt Q25 Hitch this afternoon! Assembly was very easy taking approximately 30mins until the hitch was ready to be locked into the RAM Factory Puck System. Engineering design was well thought out, and locked into my 2020 RAM 3500 Dually perfectly. I was amazed with how easy it hooked up to my 5th Wheel Camper. Installing and removal of the Curt Q25 Hitch Setup is a breeze by yourself. I would purchase this hitch setup up all over again !

2020 Ram 1500

With the RAM compatible legs, the directions vary slightly than documented, but it is still fairly easy to figure out. Once assembled, install took 15 minutes, including puck adjustments to close the latches.

- C16049

Nice hitch but I only gave it average because of the assembly instruction. Although really nice booklets they are border line unsafe with the assembly. Ineffective and unsafe use of lock and flat washers. Lock washers are a special type of washer that’s designed to create tension so that the bolts or nuts do not loosen or otherwise come out of its installed position. Lock washers aren’t flat for a reason. They feature a semi-coiled design that gradually rises and bite into something solid and stationary when compressed. This design allows lock washers to create tension when installed to prevent bolt or nut from unexpectedly loosen due to vibration and torque. In the assembly instruction and also in the assembly video of the Q25 lock washer are used on top of flat washers. The flat washer prevents the lock washer from doing what it is intended to do above. This was true in the case of the 4 bolts use to attach leg assemblies to the Head support assembly. Also true with the 2 center cross support bolts. The side leg assemblies are not marked passenger and driver side. Nor does the installation instruction clearly identify them. Yes, they will only fit in truck socket one way. But you knew that, right. Which way do they go? The 4 retaining bolts that hold the leg assemblies to the head support assembly. The installation booklet shows them being installed from the outside with Teflon lock nuts, and washers on the inside of the head assembly. This method prevents an adequate torque of the nuts after installation. The assembly video shows the bolts with washer being installed from inside the head assembly with only nuts on the outside of the leg assemble. Please have your engineers review and provide a corrected instruction so I may correct my hitch assembly.

In the instructions the legs are designated as the drivers side and the passenger side legs. When installing the hardware you will begin assembly with attaching the legs to the 5th wheel hitch head using the M14 bolts and M14 washers through the ed mounting holes and loosely secure them with the nylock nuts provided. Then install the bolts into the cross support weldment. Loosely attach the cross support weldment between the two assemblies with the provided M14 x 75 hex bolts, lock washers, and flat washers. Once all installed it allows the lock washers to work as intended.

Easy to put together.,dropped right in.,tows my 43 ft alpine 5th wheel with ease and confidence.,highly recommended

- C16049

Installed in less than 30 mins. No Steel pins from head to base just 4 bolts. I saw a video of one being installed and it was the same model. Kinda worried about only having 4 bolts holding it together. Looks like the shippers had a rough time being gentle with it in transit.

- C16049

Assembled and installed myself. Am experienced so would recommend an installer otherwise. 45 min finish time. Hauls smooth as butter without the usual creaks and groans of the old school hitches. Hooking and unhooking are simplified with the site aids built in. Big Thanks E Trailer and Curt.

Easy installation maybe a little longer than 30 minutes. Put it in a 2017 Dodge 2500.

This is a awesome hitch. It’s been working excellent I have no problem moving it in and out of my truck

Amazed how fast my Product arrived. Hitch installed on my 2020 RAM 3500 Limited with OEM 5th wheel package. no issues with installation. Only thing, boxes in bad shape when arrived!

- C16049

I am very happy with this 5th wheel hitch and etrailer Corporation. I originally had ordered a different hitch but was advised that there was a back order on that particular hitch so after contacting etrailer and speaking with Pat C we were able to work out a deal on the Q25 hitch. I have not gotten to tow with it yet but have installed it in my truck. This hitch is very heavy duty and you will probably need some assistance putting it together but with that said I am confident that this hitch will do the job I need it to do. I am very pleased with the customer service of etrailer and the quick delivery. I will definitely do business with them again.

- C16049

Ordered the Q25 on Monday and it arrived Friday as promised. The unit was very well packaged and there was no damage as I've read about in other reviews. This went into my 2017 Ram 3500 long bed with the puck system. Installation was easy and took about 30 minutes working by myself. I had watched the installation videos prior to delivery. The unit is very solid and appears well built. I'll be hooking up to my 38' Montana on Monday for the maiden voyage. I expect complete satisfaction. Customer service from my first call through installation was fantastic! Coupled with the best price I could find I will forever be looking to eTrailer for my towing and trailer needs!

- C16049

Incredible service etrailer!!! Just purchased a new Ram 3500 for towing our 5th wheel. Before turning to etrailer I attempted to purchase a Mopar OME direct mount hitch. For three days Mopar dealers never returned my calls or emails. Finally last Tuesday I called etrailed at 8:00 pm, what a surprise! Kyle answered and 10 minutes later I had a Kurt direct mount hitch ordered. It shipped the next morning and delivered Friday. Fantastic service. I’ll send photos soon e-trailer has my business from now on.

- C16049

5 Stars for both the step rails and the 5th Wheel hitch. The instructions that came with the products and the videos Etrailer made available on line made the install easy.

- C16049

Outstanding product and excellent value. I was able to install it in 30 minutes. The dealer where I purchased a fifth wheel trailer from wanted to know where I had purchased it from. Thank you very much. John B.

One year later I am as pleased today as I was when I purchased the hitch. There isn’t anything any better out there!

2015 Ram 3500

Had a great experience with a great product. So refreshing to see something actual works as advertised. The site said it would fit my truck, be under the rail line and that was exactly the case. It takes about thirty minutes of real work to install. Working alone, it took me an hour - counting all the breaks. The GREEN/RED/YELLOW indicator on the handle makes it simple to know when it's locked, unlocked or ready to lock... Looking forward to hooking up the Toy Hauler.

- C16049

The hitch holds really well but it doesn’t give you much wiggle room when connecting. You have to be just about dead on center and height to get proper hitch closure. With my old hitch I could be an inch or more off either way and it would jockey the trailer enough to connect. I’m getting use to this hitch but if I bought another I would definitely shop around a bit more. All that said, etrailer was great to deal with.

- C16049

Product is great this will be my second curt hitch. Issues I have value is great free shipping is great Delivery not so much as it was on time it was a miracle everything was in the boxes. Small potatoes but the rubber grip on the lock handle was ground off Boxes had major damage. Alll in all very satisfied with the hitch it self.

2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

Hitch was easy to install. Be sure to assemble in the truck bed, because the hitch is very heavy. The product is very well made, and easy for camper hook up. The color indicators are very helpful. The pucks fit right into my 2017 3500 RAM.

- C16049

The hitches arrived as expected. There was a delay in shipment because part of the order was on backorder. Excellent price

The Curt A25 hitch is the newer version of the Curt Q25 hitch which features a stronger head unit made of a more durable material in addition to an easier removal process.

  • Difference Between Curt A25 16046 and Curt Q25 16049 Fifth Wheel HItch for Ram Truck Prep Package
    Good question and there are a couple of important differences between the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16046 and Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16049. The first difference is the jaw system, as you can see in the accompanying photo I made which shows them side-by-side. The A25 has an interlocking dual jaw system while the Q25 does not; these interlocking jaws result in the A25 always having complete contact with your kingpin,...

The primary difference between the two models is with the head. The Curt A25 features a stronger head unit with better materials that's going to hold up better over time.

  • Difference Between Curt A25 C16046 and Q25 C16049 - 2019 Ram 2500 Long Bed w/ Factory Prep Package
    The primary difference between the Curt # C16049 Q25 and the # C16046 A25 is the way the hitch head pivots and the way the hitch jaws are constructed and how they grip the king pin. The Q25 # C16049 uses a spherical axial bearing that allows the hitch to have a 360 degree pivot and a double jaw hinge. The way the head pivots makes it a little easier to hook up the fifth wheel on terrain that isn't perfectly flat, but the pivot means that the hitch isn't compatible with rotating pin boxes...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Height for Clearance Between Bed Rails and Underside of Trailer
    It sounds to me like you're right about your trailer not sitting level. And you'll have about 7 inches of clearance between the truck's bed rails and the underside of your trailer. If you go with a hitch that sits lower, like the Curt # C16049 a minimum height of 14 inches, you still can only gain about an inch before you start to sacrifice clearance because you'll want about 6 inches.
