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 raised side rails - since this hitch sits low in the bed, it might not give you enough space for your trailer to clear
  • Have a trailer with a rotating pin box, such as the Reese Sidewinder, Reese Revolution, or 5th Airborne Sidewinder
  • Would rather have an American-made hitch
Heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has a dual jaw and color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. Self-aligning, pivoting head and included lube plate make hookup a snap.

Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Q24 Two-Piece Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, 2-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.


3-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.

This hitch is the BOMB! It fit my 2020 Silverado 3500HD perfectly! It was so easy to put together with the detailed instructions, and dropped right in. Just some minor adjustments to the locking handles is all hat was needed. By removing the head, I can lift the pieces myself! This will make pulling my 40’ 5th Wheel a breeze!
This was the best decision I could have made!

I am so thankful for the support I received from Roger. He helped me every step of the way and answered all my questions. I cannot say enough about the awesome customer service. This was my first time purchasing from etrailer.com and I am very pleased. My new Q25 head works perfectly in my Silverado. Thanks again

I love this hitch. The ease of install and de-install makes it worth the cost. It gets a smooth ride with our fifth wheel camper.

Good product, just does not provide enough height

Showed up quickly, this is the 3rd purchase from etrailer.com, they have great customer service, they know their products, prices are reasonable and they ship fast. I also purchased the bed cover from them.



by:
2021 Ram 2500

etrailer's online information was accurate & correct. I'd purchased the same hitch from one of their competitors & needed to return it since they were supposedly unaware that GMC changed there tow package hole spacing in 2020. Delivery of my Curt Q25 for my 2021 Chevy 2500 was quick, when promised & the correct product. With the bed tow preparation package installation was a snap, 4 bolts to assemble & install. It took me about an hour and a half total which included uncrating & searching for my torque wrench.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Showed up just in time to install and cross a few states to pick up our 1st new 5th wheel. Easy installation and showed up a few days early.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


The Curt Q 25 is a great hitch. It came from etrailer within 2 days The reason I am not giving it a 5 star is that the packaging was open in one corner and I am missing a bolt. I never had a chance to inspect it since it was dropped off by the carrier without notice. (We we’re home)


Comments
The hitch is working flawlessly!!! I always keep it maintained with your greasing contract surfaces and it’s been great working as it supposed to

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I have ran a cheap competitor hitch for several years.
A manufacturing defect (welded pivot pin) caused the hitch to fail and resulted in 18000$ damage to my truck and trailer.
I chose the Curt 25000# hitch after much research and found it to be very well made and clearly shows when it is properly coupled. It is quiet and operates with minimal klunking and chunking going down the road.
Overall I am very pleased.


Comments
My hitch is still flawless and looks new. After a year and at least 30 trips, I have no complaints and would still highly recommend the Curt 2500# hitch

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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 !

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Overall very happy with my Curt 5th wheel 24k hitch. I’m happy it came in pieces because of the weight totally assembled. Release spring for the slide is pretty stiff but I wouldn’t want it disengaging while driving down the road. Thanks for all your help Justin and your prompt service.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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.


Comments
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.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Very good 5th wheel hitch, I really like the 360 degree of movement. It fits the Dodge puck system very well. It very well make, it’s built very heavy duty and easy to use. Could not be happier with it.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Excellent product arrived in good shape! Don’t worry about the packaging they take good care and the product is made of steel which is pre-assembled with the parts that allows you to put it right in the back of your truck!! Other than the weight it took us about 30 minutes to install it was a breeze. We towed our new fifth wheel 560 miles back home and it was awesome!

Ask the Experts about this CURT Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • Will the Curt Q25 Also Fit in the Short Bed 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 OEM Pucks
    Yes. The Curt Q25 # C97FR does also fit in the OEM prep package on the short bed (6-3/4 foot) versions of the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500. If you're confident that you won't need a slider hitch or pin box with a rotating turret this is the correct choice,. With that said, it should be noted that the Q25 hitch is not compatible with rotating turret pin boxes because of the spherical axial bearing that the head sits on, so if you would need to switch to one later on to provide turning clearance,...

  • Recommended Height For Item # C97FR In A 2021 GMC Sierra 3500
    I wouldn't say there is actually a formula for setting the height for the Curt Q25 Item # C97FR on a 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 . It is recommended that the bottom edge of the nose on your 5th wheel is 6 inches above the bed rails. I typically set the hitch height in the middle initially. This seems to be the standard height of most campers. Once height is set, hook the camper up and check the distance between the bed rails and the bottom edge of the nose. If you have close to 6" you are good...

  • Difference Between the Curt Q24 & Q25 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2022 Chevrolet 2500 w/ OEM Prep Package
    The only difference between the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C37FR and the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C97FR is indeed the 1,000 lbs. weight capacity difference. Both of these hitches actually use the same legs and will drop into the factory puck system you have in your Silverado. The 1,000 lb. difference comes from the Q24 having head rated for less than the Q25. But both heads have the same convenient features like the interlocking dual jaw system and indicator system which...

  • Comparing Curt A25 and Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for a 2022 GMC Sierra 3500 with Prep
    The main difference between the Curt A-Series part # C24FR and Q-Series part # C97FR is the head and jaw design. The A-Series has dual interlocking jaws which form a much tighter grip on the kingpin than just a standard set that butt up at the end like on the Q-Series. The tighter grip on the kingpin means less movement such as chucking and jarring which equates to a smoother ride. The A-Series also has a one-pin head removed which saves your back when getting the hitch in and out of the...

    The only difference between the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C37FR and the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C97FR is in fact the extra 1,000 lb towing capacity of the Q25. They actually have the exact same legs, but the head unit of the Q24 is rated for 24,000 lbs towing while the head unit of the Q25 is rated for 25,000 lbs towing.

If you've determined that your trailer is configured in such a manner that it won't contact the cab of the trailer when making turns and you've got an OEM prep package you can use the # C97FR. However, you've indicated that you don't have the OEM prep package...
