Heavy-Duty Perfomance in a Lightweight Package

Curt CrossWing

When you think of a fifth-wheel hitch, you probably think of a cumbersome, heavy-duty piece of equipment that sits in your truck bed and stays there because of the tremendous effort it takes to remove it. Well, the Curt CrossWing offers the same rugged performance and heavy-duty hauling power that you'd expect from a fifth-wheel hitch, but it's lightweight enough to be easily moved in and out of your truck. This hitch weighs just 60 lbs, which is 65-percent lighter than a standard hitch. But while it may be lightweight, no sacrifices were made in the quality of its construction. The CrossWing features premium steel and a reinforced head connection point that offers superior strength and reliability for towing loads up to 20,000 lbs.


Fast and Easy Coupling

If you've ever towed a 5th-wheel trailer, you know that the coupling process can be a hassle because of the precision required to ensure a proper connection. You have to painstakingly guide the hitch's pincer-like jaws around a small, cylindrical king pin, which is easier said than done. Coupling can be such a finicky process, that some 5th-wheel hitches even use a color-coded indicator to alert you when you're properly connected.


An improper connection can result in high pinning, which is when the king pin on the trailer looks like it's in the jaws, but it's actually sitting higher than the fifth-wheel hitch. With the CrossWing, high pinning and finicky coupling are things of the past.


Curt CrossWing Coupler Piece

This is thanks to the wedge-shaped coupler piece that bolts around your trailer's king pin and remains there, separate from the hitch base. Not only does this further cut down on the weight of the hitch, but it also ensures that you don't get the rattling that occurs when a king pin sits inside of the jaws on a traditional hitch.


Curt CrossWing Contact Point

When hooking up with the Curt CrossWing you can clearly see when the bolted-on pin box coupler is in place in the hitch base head from the comfort of your truck cab. The contact point of the head is a large, open-faced funnel that makes it easy to guide the coupler into place as you back into it. This funnel-shaped head also allows for fore, aft, and lateral articulation, so you can easily hitch up on uneven terrain.


This already simplified process of coupling with the Curt CrossWing is made even easier when paired with a 3rd-brake-light backup camera. The positioning of the CrossWing and the angle of its head lines up perfectly with this type of backup camera, allowing you to watch the coupler as it glides into place. Once the pin box coupler is nestled within the head channel, all you have to do is lock it into place with the easy-to-reach, ergonomic handle.


Shock Absorbing ShockDrop Technology

The CrossWing features Curt's innovative ShockDrop technology, which is engineered to suppress jerking, jarring, and chucking while you're towing. This durable, polyurethane material sits at the pivot point of the hitch head and absorbs excess shock so that it doesn't transfer from the truck to your trailer or vice versa. The result is increased control and comfort as you tow, as well as less wear and tear on your towing setup.

  • Can The Curt Crosswing 5th Wheel Hitch Be Used With A Reese Sidewinder Pin Box
    The Curt Crosswing Lightweight 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C86JR currently does not have a compatible wedge kit so you will not be able to use your Sidewinder's rotating turret function and will need to reinstall the lockout bolts in the back to use it like a standard pin box. I spoke with Curt and they stated they're working on the appropriate wedge kit and should have it out soon.

  • What is Purpose of Small Cone in Base of Curt Crosswing Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The cone that you see in the picture you attached of the Curt Crosswing part # C86JR is there to help align it with the rest of the hitch when you back the vehicle up into it and lower it down with the jacks. This ensures it is completely seated and prevents any movement and also is not a wear point. This hitch has a lifetime warranty as well so you would not have to worry about it wearing out.

    At this time, the Curt Crosswing Lightweight 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C86JR does not have a compatible wedge kit so you will not be able to use your Sidewinder's rotating turret function.

  • Will Curt CrossWing Lightweight 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Work with MORryde Pin Box?
    Yes, your MORryde pin box is compatible with the Curt CrossWing Lightweight 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C86JR. The only time that a pin box won't be compatible with this hitch is if it has a rotating turret like a Reese Sidewinder. In that case you'd have to lockout the turret so it operates like a standard pin box. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Hitch Rails For Installing Curt Crosswing 5TH Wheel Hitch In a 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed OEM Prep/Puck
    I do prefer the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 with its fully welded design for your 2019 Ram 2500 with the factory prep/puck system. This will allow you to mount the Curt Crosswing Lightweight 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C86JR in your bed. Since you do have the short bed remember that you may not be able to make full jackknife turns without your cab hitting the 5th wheel. A Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550035 is the best option as it will automatically move the camper...

    The Curt Crosswing # C86JR is compatible with ISR rails so is a multitude of options for your 2014 Ram 3500 with a 6-1/2' bed.

This rail kit has custom fit brackets that require no drilling into the frame to install, which will save a ton of time and frustration.

  • Will Curt CrossWing 5th Wheel Hitch Fit with B&W Gooseneck Hitch on 2021 Ram 2500
    The Curt CrossWing Lightweight 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C86JR will fit with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1320 on your short bed 2021 Ram 2500 but you'll need to use the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter # DM6140 since the CrossWing connects to the truck via base rails as opposed to the gooseneck hitch ball. As far as safety chains go, 5th wheel towing actually doesn't require the use of safety chains so that's one less thing you'll need to mess with. I...
