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).

R20 Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' and 6-1/2' beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

Non-Binding Design

The round-tube design of this slider allows for relatively uninhibited movement of your fifth-wheel hitch. Because your hitch can glide smoothly and easily along the rods, there is less chance of binding.

With straight, flat contact points, as found with square-tube sliders, tension can build between the slider and the hitch when your truck and trailer are somewhat out of line or are on uneven ground. As a result, it can be difficult to properly activate the slider when your truck and trailer are not in a straight line.

With a round-tube slider, there is more give between the contacting surfaces, allowing better mobility of the hitch system. Fewer corners means less tension buildup. Activating a round-tube slider is easier, and operation as a whole is smoother.

Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs - C16541

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (407 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty 5th-wheel trailer hitch has interlocking jaws, a torsion head, and a color-coded lock indicator for safety and security. Non-binding slider ensures proper clearance during slow turns. Rails and universal installation kit sold separately.


Great Hitch, very happy with this unit. Have pulled the 18K lb fifth wheel over 25K miles (Florida to Idaho, back to Florida and now Alaska). We have covered many rough roads and challenging situations, without problems and have never had a bad couple.
The hitch indicator on front of head gives a clear indication of latching condition, and the latch handle has a locking pin for added protection. This pin is the only issue I have had, which can be trapped under the slide plate if your truck is at an angle (beyond about 35 deg) from the rv. I make it a point to pull this pin prior to backing if I am the least bit concerned.

This is a great hitch! Excellent quality and it's made here in America.


This is very well built and operates great. Once I got the first rail positioned and mounted, everything else was very easy. The R20 slider came in a single box and was very heavy. The packaging is not suitable for the weight. As others have also reported, the package was completely demolished when it arrived. Thankfully , all the part’s made it okay and nothing was damaged. I love the product.


The CURT A20 is great and not too difficult to install yourself. I didn't want to wait over a month for local installation so I just followed the video and instructions and had it installed in about 6 hours. We've put a couple of thousand miles on it since installation and it's great. Easy to hook up and decouple.


Like everyone writes. Packaging is light for such 5th wheel heavy metal hitches. just some scuffs but everything was there (incl hardware). R20 roller box fell apart. A20 hitch head box was intact and well packed with styrofoam. Installed same day. Can't wait to camp. I've upgraded from Husky 15k slider to Curt A20 w/ R20 slider. I kept my original Reese rails for my Ram3500 puck system. Everything fit together. Ordering was easy over the phone. Delivery was quick. All nice things to say. Thanks you all around.



Ive only had the opportunity to tow one across country from easy to west coast and back. 6,000 miles in two months.. its been great. The right size for the camper, confident, safe .


The A20 hitch and R20 slider are outstanding products.
One issue I had was the differing instructions on bolting the two together.
The A20 instructions are for bolting to stationary’leg’ base. The R20 slider instructions are what I used and worked very well.



This hitch has served us very well. It is a very stable when attaching rig 16K loaded and tows extremely well. We appreciate the colored indicator to ensure we are ‘hitched’ and the slider mechanism is simple and has worked very well.


The R20 Roller and the A20 Slider were both pretty easy to install. Except for the weight (Those Things Are HEAVY) It was a straight forward install. What I like is the Quality of the Curt Products. They are a very high Quality product in my opinion. I plan on the wife and I and our Two Main Coons are planning a cross country trip. So I am very excited to get out on the open Road and see where life takes us. What WAS a bear to install was the Rail Kit. It required lots of trips out from under


2008 Dodge 3500 Mega Cab Laramie DRW.
the rails already in the truck perfect. Easy to assemble. Did 95% of it before I even looked at the instructions. I believe it will work well when I finally get the chance to use it.


The product arrived 1 day earlier than promised. The instructions were decent, they could of been more inclusive of the different setups, the hitch and sliders didn’t reference how to interface with the Ram puck base. The rubber gaskets for the slider base didn’t fit with the Ram base due to their thickness. You need a 100lbs torque wrench(I rented one from Orielys). All the parts were present. The bad may not of been etrailers fault, but the boxes arrived like they were dropped out of an airplane. Amazingly, nothing was damaged.


First time using etrailer. Service was great and I could track my items as they were packaged, shipped,and delivered. I have hauled for 1 season with the new hitch and have zero complaints with the operation of it. I would recommend watching a video on how to put it together as parts of the installation instructions were vague.


Installed Curt A20 hitch w/slider rails in 2016 Chevrolet Z71 2500


I have only installed the hitch and tried it out in my driveway. Have not had he opportunity to use it on the road and see how much it improves my maneuverability. But Curt hitches are very well built units. I only upgraded from my previous one to go to the slider hitch and this hitch appears to work just as well and also appears that the slider is going to give me the added maneuverability that I was looking for. Heavy and not quite as easy to put in and take out of my truck is my only complaint so far.



The hitch has been working great. No issues.


Perfect fit, easy installation, fast shipping, good price. Pictures attached in a 2017 2500HD Z71 Midnight Edition.


I recently purchased a fifth wheel hitch for my new truck but wasn't sure I ordered the correct one after hitting the "enter" key! I called etrailer the following morning and found out I had, in fact, ordered the wrong hitch. The young man I spoke with was incredibly helpful - he canceled my initial order, explained what I really needed and why and then placed the order. I went on line the next day and found that the order had somehow been cancelled. I then spoke with LEAH G. She is the bomb. She corrected everything and did her best to expedite shipping including personally making certain that MY shipment was on the last truck of the day. What more can I say. and Leah G are unbelievably awesome from beginning to end! Thank you for a great experience Conrad

Conrad C.


Everything is still working great!


Everything was fine and was easy to install....that being said, I much prefer my B&W companion!


Great product ,straight forward install only took 4 hours on the ground, a plus that it separates to make lighter


Very heavy duty hitch. Initially had some concerns so ordered the 20,000 lbs. instead of the 16000. Very good service from the etrailer representatives. Had some concerns on how long the delivery was going to take, however they were able to get it to me in a very short time. Thank you to the individuals who helped with my order. Danny


Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch Fifth Wheel Hitch 2018 Ram 2500 This was not easy choice to make as I tend to try top save money. But with my truck and the puck system this has been an excellent purchase. The removable pin let's me pull the top of the hitch off while leaving the rest in the truck. This allows me to store it in front of the adapter rails. Then my roll up bed cover clears the top while the rest is still mounted. Dry, secure out of site out of mind while shopping or parked at RV park overnight. The slider allows the extra clearance to give you peace of mind you will not damage your truck while backing into tight spaces on a serious angle. Then of course the top comes off with that pin making the entire thing lighter to remove when taking the entire assembly out of the truck. IT is manageable but still better to use the tractor bucket or hoist as it is heavy duty. No issues and very happy with this purchase and the continued great service from etrailer! I pulled a 34 ft 5th wheel 1800 miles at average of 75mph. Did not even know the trailer was back there when the wind was not blowing. Thanks again for helping me put this package together and having the lowest price while doing it!


Now this is what I'm talking about. This hitch is great! Very tough, rugged, dependable for all your 5th wheel towing needs. Easy smooth operation to switch from maneuverable position for those tight and sometimes hard to get into spots. Switching to towing mode is a breeze. This hitch limits that bucking and chugging effect as you tow down the highway. Easy to install and in my case I got the over kill with this 18,000 pound towing capacity. I only have a 13,000 pound RV; however I wanted that peace of mind knowing that I have enough strength and security behind me in the bed of my truck. Thanks etrailer for offering great products.


I am extremely impressed with not only my new Curt 5th wheel hitch which I expected to be perfect but more importantly with the customer service that I received from the staff. They took considerable time to discuss different hitch options with me to help me decide which hitch would be the perfect choice for my specific needs. This was my 1st 5th wheel hitch purchase so I had very limited knowledge and they helped educate & guide me through the process. I saved hundreds of dollars purchasing my hitch through and would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase any type of hitch. Great job etrailer and thank you for all of your help and guidance !!!


I give them a 5 star even tho my item was missing parts ! Because I called right away and someone actually answers and I was able to get the parts the next day . She was so nice and went through each part with detail to make sure I got what I needed . Thanks for not having a recording and a million hoop to go through to get a real person on the line


This hitch did nothing but satisfy my pulling needs! Strong secure connection with no play or noises. Durable and built to last a lifetime. This hitch will satisfy anyone’s towing needs I have no doubt about it. Thank you Kurt hitches for an amazing product.


First off a big thank you to Nichole B. for the excellent customer service. I called on Saturday and explained that I really needed a Curt 5th wheel hitch by the next WednesdayI paid for the 4 day shipping and bam it was here on Wednesday, and with Trailer your never at home wondering the status of your order. They update every move from the time you place your order to the time it is delivered.I leave tomorrow to pick up our new 5th wheel toy hauler(our first 5th wheel) but the hitch was easily installed by myself and seems to be in working order but Ill know more when we hook up the 5th wheel. Thank you Nichole and Etrailer


Overall a great experience. I love the Curt 20A fifth-wheel hitch. Easy to hook and un-hook my Columbus 320RS. Very quiet ride too. One issue; the hitch arrived in 2 boxes and both were beat up pretty bad. That resulted in some paint damage to the unit which I touched up right away. I highly recommend the hitch and

Dr. S.


Still very satisfied! As full time RVers I hook up frequently. Super easy. And it pulls quietly too.


The hitch made it okay but the slider box was badly damaged and there is parts missing. Called this morning about it


I installed this Hitch on my 2015 F350 6.7l one year ago and absolutely love it..
I have been faithful to the Reese Pro series for ever, so this was a very tough decision to go with Curt and all I can say is that I definitely made the right decision.
The hitch fits perfectly under my Pace Edward Jack Rabbit tonneau cover because the release handle lays flat.
This enables me to just pull the cover closed after I drop the camper thus keeping the hitch out of sight and my bed dry/extra storage.
Now on to function:
The slide mechanism works flawlessly and that with a pin weight of 2800lbs. (The Reese always made me fight with the release level)
The pin has Zero chuckle
Release handle is fantastic, I have been at some odd angles and have never had an issue releasing the pin.
What else can I say except I would buy this hitch again in a heart beat.

  • Difference Between The C16022 And C29BR Fifth Wheel Adapters
    Both adapters will fit the puck system in your 2023 Ram 2500. The # C16022 is designed to work only with Curt brand sliding fifth wheel hitches like the # C16541. The # C29BR is more of a universal adapter and can be used with both sliding and fixed fifth wheel hitches. The # C29BR will also work with other brands of fifth wheel hitch such as B&W and Reese. It will work with most fifth wheel hitches designed for industry standard rails. We generally recommend a slider for short bed models,...

  • Do I Need a Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2019 Ford F-250 Short Bed?

    I would be happy to help you. There are two big differences in options for towing a 5th wheel trailer with your 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500. The first and easiest would be if you have the prep package. What that is is a from the factory option that puts four holes in the bed of your Silverado for mounting a 5th wheel hitch (See picture below).

  • Does the Curt A20 with A20 slider base 16500 work
    Did you mean the 16550? There is no A20 slider base 16500, but in any case, the X5 is only compatible with the R20 slider, the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider # C16541. The S20 slider is NOT compatible with the X5, so you'd need the R20 slider for the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter # C16210, # C16220, or # 16310.

    For a great Curt 5th-wheel hitch for your 6-3/4 foot bed on your 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500 with OEM prep, I recommend the Curt A20 # C16541.

In order to complete the installation, you also need the Curt Adapter Rails # C88KR. With this adapter, you will be able to install the A20 to the bed of your truck....

    The exact part that you need to use your Curt sliding 5th wheel hitch, like part # C16541, in the short bed of your 2019 Ford F-250 depends on if you have the OEM prep package or not. If you do have the OEM prep package then you simply need the Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 which drops into your puck system. If you don't have the OEM prep package you need a base rail kit like part # RP50074-58 which doesn't require drilling for the install. Both of these options give you...
