Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A20 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

A20 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).

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (58 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has interlocking jaws and color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. Torsion head offers easy hookup and quiet, stable towing. Legs mount to Chevy/GMC OEM underbed platform.

Works as it should. Prior to installing this hitch I had never touched a 5th wheel hitch. This hitch is designed to work on GMC/Chevy with trailer prep package. Well they did a great job. I went from hitch in the crate to hitch installed in less than 30 minutes. I would caution that you may need help lifting hitch into bed of truck, hitch is heavy.

Hitch as pulled 5th wheel over 7k miles without any issues. 5th wheel is 12500 lbs. I keep it greased and check torque per directions. Only non positive is the color Tow- Couple- Uncouple stickers are faded.



by:

Definitely a substantial piece of equipment, easy to install although the instructions were somewhat lacking. Quality is excellent and the unit is nice looking. Confident it can handle any 5th wheel unit.



by:

Great Product, Fair Price and easy to I nstall.



by:

I’ve had this hitch for a year now and I like it a lot. The indicator on the front is nice it tells you when it’s locked in and when it isn’t right. The hitch works good and I like how small it is and is easy to remove when I need the full bed.

This is a very nice hitch it works great and i have not had any issues with it.



by:

Absolutely love this hitch. So smooth you almost forget the trailer is back there. Had an old Curt for years think it was the Q24 that I like but this new design with added head movement is fantastic. Great hitch! And thanks etrailer for the fast shipping. Got it super quick considering covid era so great job guys!

Perfect fit for my 2020 Chevrolet dually. Smaller than the previous one I had in the 2018. This hitch is awesome. Easy to install and works like a pro. Thank you Lori.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

We received the product couple days ago. Looked at it closer this morning. Everything appears to be intact. It is definitely heavier and more solid built than I had anticipated from the pictures shown. Ordered a new truck about four weeks ago. Hopefully it comes sooner than later with the Covid delays, so that we can try this bad boy out!

Here is what I like about this hitch .... 30 K rating. Well in excess of the 21,000 pounds or so that I will be pulling. Added safety factor. The head separates from the body and legs, with one pin, which will make it easier to take in and out of the box. The fully articulating head and king pin clamp should make for a smooth operation without much noise. The legs came in a separate box. If the hitch ever goes in a different vehicle, I am thinking that legs should be able to be purchased to accommodate that set up and still use the rest of the hitch. The hitch actually has an appealing look to it. A lot or even most hitches are kind of ugly. I believe the hitch is completely, 100% USA made. I cannot give an opinion on actual use until such a time that our truck arrives. Some people said that the packaging was poor and the box basically disintegrated in transit. Ours, however, arrived in good shape. There was foam inside of the box for cushioning and a secondary box inside the main hitch box.



by:
2020 GMC Sierra 3500

The hitch arrived on time. Installation went fairly well. The only drawback was with the written and video installation instructions provided by Curt. The instruction manual and video fails to provide clear guidance on the bolt washer arrangement. There appears to be a standard package of bolts and nuts that must be used with other setups that Curt has and this leads to questioning exactly what you are supposed to do: use the nut, don't use the nut, lock washer with the nut, lockwasher on the bolt side. I went with using the nut (even though the video or manual addresses this) since it provides an additional capture mechanism and torquing a bolt into a plate with the forces that will be experienced by the hitch did not make sense. The first use went great.



by:

Love my A30 hitch. You and the rest of the etrailer team did an outstanding job delivering this part. I also bought my Flexair pin box for you. You guys have EXCELLENT customer service!!! Lewis

Rebecca was very helpful and considerate in helping with problem. I needed a fifth wheel hitch for a 2020 standard box silverado w/pucks. She called Curt and got the right item since it was so new. Great item and a snap to put together and so nice to have the pucks and no rails.



by:
2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Purchased for use in a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado. Installation was straight forward. I towed a 35 ft 5th wheel travel trailer about 12,000 miles over 3 months and never had any problems.



by:

I've owned this hitch for about a year and pulled an 18K lb Toy Hauler nearly 5000 miles. The hitch has worked flawless, and it's easy to separate into two pieces to remove from the bed when necessary.



by:

Awesome company...awesome service...and absolutely love the Curt A30. Overkill for our 18,000 pound trailer, but that's the way I roll.



by:

Great hitch!! It hooks ups every time in a single attempt even on uneven ground. My old hitch could take 25 attempts if the ground was uneven.



by:

Haven’t towed with it yet, but assembly was pretty straight forward. Seems well built and can’t wait to hook up to the 5th wheel and hit the road!



by:

It’s a good hitch it was easy to put together latches every time I would recommend it



by:

I love this double jaw hitch. Looks good and seems to be more secure.

  • Suggestions For Helping with 5th Wheel Chucking with 2021 Forest River 2621WS Ultra-Lite
    I'll start out by saying that this is going to be fairly normal with a trailer that size and there's really not a way to completely eliminate chucking; additionally there aren't adjustments on the hitch or trailer that can be made to help curb this. However, there are components that are better suited to help reduce the effects than others and if you wanted to go about trying to reduce this as much as possible there are 2 routes you could go. Without knowing the exact hitch you're using,...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch That Fits Directly in Factory Puck System on 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500
    We do have a nice selection of 5th wheel hitches that are designed to drop right into the factory pucks on your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 but I specifically recommend the Curt A30 # C16070 that provides the highest towing capacity available at 30,000 pounds and features a unique spherical axial bearing that allows for easy pivot of the hitch head for smooth and quiet travel. Something else you won't find on any other brand hitch is the 3-point indicator system that quickly lets you know...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Prep Package Pucks
    The fifth wheel hitch I recommend for a 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 is the Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16070. The Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch has the highest weight capacity available of 30,000 lbs so you know it will last and you never have to worry about maxing out the hitch. The Curt A-Series is actually a personal favorite of mine, mainly because of the dual interlocking jaws (see photo). These jaws form a tight grip on the kingpin therefore work to provide a smooth ride....

  • Fifth Wheel Recommendation for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 with OEM Rail Kit
    The hitch I recommend for your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 long bed is the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3715 which has a 25k capacity. This USA made hitch has the highest quality, ease of use, and overall reliability. It's also made in the USA and easily breaks down into smaller sections to make installing/removing a bit easier.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt A30 # C16070 is not a good hitch to use on a truck with a 6-1/2 foot bed. In order to avoid hitting the truck cab when turning or manuevering to park, which is a common issue encountered with towing 5th wheel trailers on a short truck bed, you would need a sliding hitch like the B&W Companion # BWRVK3775 or a Sidewinder pin box like the # RP34FR. The Companion hitch fits in the factory prep package pucks to give you a solution that leaves your truck...

This hitch has a maximum towing capacity of 30,000-lbs, a vertical load limit of 7,500-lbs, and also features a 4" height adjustment. I also recommend you check your owner's manual for your vehicle's maximum capacity, and compare that to the hitch and use the lowest rating. That way you do not overload your vehicle by pulling more than you're allotted. Additionally,...

  • Comparing Curt PowerRide # C36WR and Curt A30 # C16070 5TH Wheel Hitches For 2022 GMC Sierra 3500
    For me the Curt PowerRide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C36WR does appear to be the best value. The built in lube plates help to ensure that you protect the hitch from getting marred up when connecting to the 5th wheel. And unlike some other manufactures the mounting location for the hardware in a good location. I would recommend keeping a spare set or 2 of the Wear Plates # C52WR in the event that they become damaged since they will not be as easily sourced as a standard lube plate. I do like...

    The most popular option is the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3710 for a 20K capacity or # BWRVK3715 for a 25K capacity. The B&W Companion is as rugged as they come, using a 1 inch thick jaw that holds the fifth wheel king pin incredibly tightly. This leads to comfortable ride, without almost all of the clanging and banging usually experienced.
