Secure, Two-Piece Jaw

Q20 Two-Piece Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, 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

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).


Q20 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.

Arrived on time with everything as promised. I have purchased multiple times from etrailer with outstanding results every time This 5th wheel hitch was just 4 bolts to put together. Easy - peasy

Great hitch, I upgraded to this from z cheap used one I found on Craigslist. What a huge difference. I was not comfortable hauling my trailer with that used hitch. This new hitch is the complete opposite. It is very durable and well constructed. I now have the confidence that I was missing. The 360 degree swivel on the 5th wheel plate greatly reduced alot of noise from the hitch. Much safer at the different angles the truck has while towing.

Unlike other reviews...I will say that my packages all arrived in perfect condition. (Boxes were all intact). Assembling the Q20 is a breeze and by all appearances this hitch certainly seems to be more than adequate for my needs. I haven't had a chance to actually use it yet...but from what I can tell, I certainly don't expect any issues. I like the way the hitch latches and unlatches, and that you can add a lock to prevent someone from opening the jaws while you are parked somewhere. I think the only thing I'll add is a lock in place of one of the pins...just to make it difficult for someone to remove and steal the hitch.

I bought a new trailer recently that weighs 16k and I just didn't feel secure using my Reese pro series 16k to Haul with. So I started looking at various hitches. I've had 3 other fifth wheel hitches in the past. All of them have been 15 and 16k models. What I never liked was the latching system. I've even had a trailer come out of the hitch due to a poor latching hook up. There wasn't an good way to lock the hitch. Some of it was my fault and some was a poor design. When I saw the Curt Q20 had a latch on the handle and also was color coded I was hooked. This hitch satisfied my want list. It arrived 4 days after I ordered it and like other comments I've read it was full of heavy duty staples. It was double packaged. There had to be over 50 staples. It was defiantly packaged securely. After dimantaling the packing I finally got to the hitch. There were a few scratches on the hitch from all the staples but a bit of black touch up paint took care of that. After all the hitch is going to be used and get scrached by me anyways. Four bolts and it was together. It fit perfictly it my existing rails. By the way it's heavier than my other hitches. I wound be apprehensive to pull my new trailer. If your looking for a great hitch at a great price you can't go wrong.

I have just used the hitch on some very short pulls, nothing long yet. However, I can tell it is much quitter and does not seem to chuck as much as my old hitch. Appears to be very well built. Heavier than the old 15K hitch I had before. The only down I can find right now is that there is not a good place to hook up the emergency stop brake cable. I was able to rig up a connector that works just fine.


Comments
This hitch is really quiet and smooth. No more chucking like my old Reese hitch. I cannot believe the increase of price however, over the past year. Paid less than $500 a year ago. Made the purchase fairly reasonable to purchase at the time.

Got my 5th wheel double boxed and in good shape. Took 2hrs to install outboard base rail kit. Everything finger tight. This Morning it took me 2hrs to drill the 4 center holes, I put 2 in the center on each rail, remove spare tire and torque everything down and replace spare tire. The outboard base rail kit was a snap to install and I love the Curt Q20 with no floppy 5th wheel plate.

I've installed the hitch using the kit made for Ford F350- the process took about the time indicated on the website (4hours) by myself and went without a hitch (pun intended). I've hooked up to the fifth wheel but haven't pulled it anywhere yet. So far I like the Curt hitch but most impressed with the installation guide for the rail kit AND everything about etrailer.com!

I ordered the hitch on a Sunday evening of a holiday weekend, I received the shipping information on Monday of the holiday and was able to track it all to the way to my door, couldn't ask for better order tracking. The hitch was double boxed with a lot of staples and arrived in excellent shape a package that heavy is going to have some external wear IMO from all the handling. The hitch came delivered in 3 piece which allowed for easy moving into the bed of the truck. The hitch has very nice and hopefully durable finish . I have yet to tow with it but like the indicator colors and the positive locking system.


Comments
We towed about 8k miles with the hitch and it had been great. Easy to connect and disconnect and have not been disappointed. The finish is holding up well and I left it exposed all winter as we camped sporadically all year.

Just got back from a two-week road trip out west, the new trailer hitch performed without a snag! Easy docking and undocking, very nice to have a nice smooth ride. We are very impressed and thankful for an excellent product. The package in which the hitch arrived was in pretty rough shape, but all the pieces arrived. There is one place on the deck itself where it took some scuffing of the paint from whatever it was banged on during shipping. We are going to have to touch up that place to keep it from rusting in the elements. All in all, this was a great buy. Thanks

Any good quality rust inhibiting spray paint like Rust-Oleum would work just fine.

Bought the Q20 Curt hitch to replace the 16,000# Curt hitch we used for our previous 5th wheel trailer. The new trailer is heavier, so I wanted to upgrade. I like the Curt products and wanted to continue with them. The dual locking jaws were the real selling point. etrailer and Lisa D are a joy to work with. We had a problem with another product and Lisa handled it perfectly and professionally.


Comments
Excellent. Since going full time RV living in 2009 we have had 5 fith wheel hitches. The last 2 have been Curt, both purchased from e-trailer. The Q20 is without a doubt the best. Great peace of mind investment. 5*****

I had a 16K Husky 5th wheel hitch for 12 years. It came with the RV purchase. We upgraded to a larger 5th wheel in 2015. I pulled it with the K16 but due to wear on the hitch I didn't feel comfortable. I searched the internet and came upon etrailer.com. I began researching different hitches. I settled on Curt due to it's reviews. I placed an order with etrailer and the next day I got an email with all of the shipping and tracking information. I had the hitch in 5 days. I was very disappointed when it was delivered. The shipping box was very light duty and had been reinforced with pieces of cardboard damaged. There was also a lot of heavy duty staples holding it together. I took photos upon delivery. After I opened the box I found the hitch was damaged. I immediately sent an email with photos of the box as received and the damage to the hitch. I called customer service and talked to Gina and Janice and went over the details. I was given instructions for returning the hitch and was emailed necessary papers to ship it back at no charge. I dropped it off at UPS the same day and received notification in 3 days that it was received. I was also advised a new hitch would be sent out and I received it in 3 days. At first I was very upset but after. That quickly changed after talking to the staff and receiving the new hitch within 5 days. These type things sometimes happen. I give the staff at etrailer.com an applause for their quick handling of this issue. I have since made another purchase. Give them a try.

After I bought my new camper the search was on for a better hitch. I previously owned a little rocker 15k with the slide bar style locking mechanism. It worked well but with the bigger camper I wanted something that would eliminate the chucking in the hitch that I was getting. After looking at a lot of other hitches and comparing price vs. features I settled on this hitch. The box it was shipped in was pretty beat up when it got to my house but I kinda expected that. The hitch survived the journey without a scratch. Its built very heavy, but not so heavy that I cant remove it my truck by myself. The fitment between all the components seems good without a lot of slop. After setting the height I hitched up to the camper and took her for a test run. I am very happy with the results so far. The only place that I get any movement is where the hitch connects to the rails but I plan on purchasing the felt pads to eliminate that in the future. The indicators on the release bar are very nice, its nice to have a visual indication and know the jaws are locked. Even after a year of use i still can't find anything to really complain about. If anyone is looking for a solid hitch that won't break the bank I would strongly recommend this one.

I just finished installing the bed rails yesterday (bear cat) on my 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500HD and installed the Curt (C16130) hitch. I've not towed or hauled any trailers with it yet so I don't know how it will perform. I previously used a Husky (15K) hitch which I really liked. The Husky was getting old and showing signs of wear and I didn't like the clanks and squeaks. The Curt hitch went in easily though it a fewer height adjustments.....height adjustment holes are two inches apart versus 1.5 inches on the Husky. It is a stout (and heavy) hitch. I frequently put my hitch in an out and the Husky could easily be broken down into two parts....reducing the weight. The Curt appears difficult (at least so far) to break down into two parts. I did it twice and had to use a crow bar to separate the head from the legs. It's way too heavy to handle in one piece....as are most fifth wheel hitches. Maybe it loosens up after use and comes apart easier.....I hope. I assume it will provide great service and eliminate the noise and chucking and had with my old hitch.

Received hitch as ordered. Assembly and installation was simple , took approximately 30 minutes. Only issue was the shipping carton was damaged and some scratching of finish occurred during the shipping.

While I was researching my hitch, I talked to etrailer a couple of times. They helped me make the decision that was most cost effective for me. I will be keeping this hitch for as long as I have a camper. That said I did not need something compatible for a change in the future. I was able to get a heavier duty hitch for less. My representative was great. It was not all perfect. The shipping people made a mess but etrailer stood behind the products they sell and made it right. I have ordered in the past and recommended them to others. In all my orders and orders of friends they do service right.

    The actual position of the bed rails can vary according to which manufacturer's frame bracket you're using. Since most folks tend to order the brackets from the same manufacturer as the hitch, I'll assume unless told differently that you're using the Curt # C16428 frame brackets with your Curt bed rails (you always want to ensure that the frame brackets and bed rails are from the same manufacturer so the capacity of the installation isn't compromised).

  • Will Curt Q20 Work With Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
    There is a great option for a Curt 5th wheel hitch you can use with your Lippert Turning Point pin box, but the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16130 is not compatible. The reason is the head of the Q20 has what is called a "spherical axial bearing" which is really a fancy way of saying it pivots 360 degrees. This means it is not stable enough to work with a rotating pin box such as the Turning Point or a Sidewinder. A very similar hitch that will work with your Turning Point pin box is...

    The Curt A20 # C16140 and Curt Q20 # C16130 are very similar 5th wheel hitches with the A20 being the more recent and improved version. The major difference is the A20 has interlocking jaws to further secure your king pin as opposed to the Q20 jaw locking system that do not interlock. This interlocking design is intended to give you more king pin contact on all sides for less jarring and chucking. The 360 degree head design that the Q series had didn't offer as much of a difference in...

    The Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16130, has a 360-degree pivoting head, not just front-to-back and side-to-side. The single pivot heads only allow the head to move front-to-back and the double pivot heads will allow front-to-back and side-to-side pivoting. The Q20 uses a unique spherical axial bearing which allows the head to pivot a full 360 degrees. The head also has built-in cushioning to absorb road shock.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2004 Chevy Silverado 3500
    When choosing a fifth wheel hitch for your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, you will first want to consider the weight of the trailer that you will be pulling. You will need to make sure you choose a hitch with the required weight capacity. Since your Silverado has an 8 foot bed, you will not need a sliding hitch.
