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.

The Curt Q25 works great on our truck with the factory puck system really a nice smooth pull for or Jayco 5th wheel


Only received half the order when I called I was told the rest would be delivered tomorrow. This should have been on shipping ticket and e-mail I got.

I am sorry to hear that you werent made aware sooner. I see your order should have arrived. I would love to hear your updated feedback when get the chance.


Exactly what I ordered and delivered exactly as promised all of that with a great price. My only disappointment was that The website says Made in the USA, which is very important to me, but the packaging said Made in CH**A. I probably would have paid a bit more if all manufacturing was USA based. Otherwise would have been a 5 star review.


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!


Not a reflection of etrailer but Curt needs to do something about how they package this for shipping. Mine arrived with the release handle bent and the box looked like it rolled off a semi at 80mph down the freeway. There was a bazillion staples and yards of tape trying to hold it together. I either have to bent the handle back to shape without damaging the hitch or attempt a return which will be a nightmare due to weight and size.

Product is first rate, and Melissa at customer service is the Absolute Best, I couldn’t be any more happier than the way I was treated by Her! I’m a customer for Life! Extremely Satisfied and Happy at the whole process!


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


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 and I am very pleased. My new Q25 head works perfectly in my Silverado. Thanks again


Everyone very helpful great place to deal with. Excellent product selection. Everything you can think of. Great customer service. Fit perfect with the new Chevy puck system. So easy to install and use.

Box was pretty beaten up, but the hitch looks great! Thanks for the quick shipment.

Whoah I can see that it came in rough shape. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

2020 GMC Sierra 2500

Fast delivery

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.


Excellent service and great employees.


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

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


We do offer a taller B&W 5th wheel hitch for the 2021 Chevy Silverado 3500 8 foot bed with the OEM prep package. It is part # BWRVK3715 where the maximum height is 18.75 inches.

  • 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 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2024 Chevy Silverado 3500 w/ Factory Puck System
    Yes, it will. The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch item # C97FR will mount directly to the pucks inside your 2024 Silverado's bed. As far as your 1621 pin box goes that's just the bolt pattern so I can't say for certain. If your pin box rotates then it will not work with the Q25. Other than that you will be good. The Curt Q25 item # C97FR has a 25,000 lbs maximum towing capacity and a vertical load limit of 6,250 lbs.

  • Will A Tight Fitting 5th Wheel Hitch Put Too Much Strain On An In-Bed Puck System
    It's very common that the legs of a fifth wheel hitch have to be loosened in order to drop into the pucks in the truck bed. With you only have an 1/8" gap the legs of your Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C97FR most likely just were sitting perfectly straight so it's nothing to worry about. Typically we recommend have the legs torqued down to the main body of the hitch and then just loosening the castle nut on the feet of the hitch to get them to drop into the pucks and then retightening them.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 - Curt Q25 with OEM Towing Prep Package
    Yes, this will include everything needed to install. Please see the product review video linked below. The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C97FR, is for Chevy/GMC trucks with the OEM puck system. This is the heavy duty dual jaw model for 25,000 lbs. with a vertical load limit is 6,250 lbs.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Does B and W Companion Hitch Head Have Ability to Pivot In All Directions
    The B and W Companion hitches like the # BWRVK3710 that fits your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 OEM prep package does have a pivoting head that can move forward and back as well as side to side. Other manufacturers have this as well but they use different terminology like what you referred to.

  • What Trucks Can a Curt Q25 for Chevy/GMC Prep Package without Slider Be Used In

  • Are The Curt Q-Series Fifth Wheel Hitches Compatible With Sidewinder Pin Boxes
    The little tech note on Reese's page is worded a bit misleadingly. The Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP64FR you were looking at is only compatible with the Curt E-Series hitches, which is why it says not to use with the A-Series. The Q-Series hitch heads are not compatible with the stress that a Sidewinder would put on it which is why we list it as not compatible.

  • Recommended Curt Sliding Hitch for a 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 W/ A Standard Bed
    If by "standard" bed you mean a 6-1/2' bed then yes you'd need to use a sliding hitch. Since you're already interested in the Curt Q25 or Q24 hitch I'd recommend going with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R24 Slider # C16546 with the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch # C88KR. This is the same hitch as the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C37FR that you're interested in, but has a sliding base instead of a fixed base.

  • Will the Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch Fit and Work in a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed w/ Prep Package
    The Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C47FR will fit in the prep package of your 2020 GMC Sierra 2500. However, with it being a short bed you may or may not have enough clearance for slow turns. Which if that was the case you would either need to get a slider or a rotating pin box. To use this with a rotating pin box / sidewinder, you'll also need custom wedge # C16991. If you end up determining that you need a slider or rotating...

  • Will a Curt Q-25 Fit in a 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed and without the OEM Prep Package
    I have a solution for you, but there are two issues here; the Curt Q-25 # C97FR is designed to fit in the OEM prep package for Chevy/GMC trucks and typically a non-sliding hitch is only recommended for trucks with 8 foot long beds. 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...
