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.

Can't really rate it because I haven't installed it yet. However, when it arrived the box was really damaged. It looked like the original box was damaged and they covered it with another box. We have gotten deliveries from UPS and Fed -Ex and they all have been damaged these last 2 months. 434906

Extremely pleased with the customer service. I placed my order on a Friday and received a confirmation call on Sunday. I was not expecting anything to process until the next week. I did receive my Curt 20k fifth wheel hitch on time however,although there was no damage to the product, the package was destroyed. Maybe Curt should look into a more substantial packaging system. Kudos to etrailer for the free shipping and the prompt service. As long as you continue an excellent customer service ( which seems to be a forgotten relation) I will be a continued customer. Thank you, Harold 390382

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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. 275867

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Received product from ETrailer in a very timely manner. All went well with no hitch, play on words, that is what I purchased. Sandy was helpful beyond belief and answered all my questions. Some speak of the damaged boxes when these Curt Hitches arrive. Mine too were damaged but the product was unscathed. Shipping the 100 lbs products I didn't expect the boxes to last. ETrailer did a great job stuffing the shipping boxes all was well. I would recommend ETrailer just on how professional the employees are. I will being purchasing other items again. Thanks again Sandy! 328914

Extremely happy with the new hitch, very easy to assemble (4 bolts, local dealer wanted $300 to assemble), even easier to attach to my factory hitch mounts (Ford). Get someone to help you lift it into your truck. 480689

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


The Curt Q20 with R20 slider hitch arrived just as promised in 3 days after placing the order. The Q20 head box was totally destroyed. The manufacture packaging was not made to ship individually using small package carrier such as UPS. Upon inspection I discovered that the bolts and washers were missing. I contacted Bill at E-trailer and told him. He explained that the replacements would have to come from the manufacturer and would take several days. I told him that I already scheduled an install and really needed those bolts and washers. He was able to round some up for me and shipped them out next day and they arrived on Monday just as promised. I also spoke with Bill about not being able to remove the head unit for the hitch. It needed to be removed to be able to install it on the slider. It seemed to be stuck and I could not budge it. I assumed that it may have been damaged in shipping, especially after receiving it in a demolished box. He explained to me that since it was new its tolerances were tight and I might try taking a pry bar to it. Well that did not make me feel real good. He was totally correct. Just a little more effort with a pry bar moved it just enough for the bushing to squeak loose and the head came right out. I am disappointed in the jaws on this unit. They look like they were forged by a 3rd grader. Not smooth and somewhat pitted. They are not machined jaws for sure. Had it all installed using the new Reese rail brackets for the 2017 F250. Everything went smooth. An added plus is the quiet ride when not connect to trailer. Can’t even notice the hitch is back there. My other hitch rattled and clanked all the time and was so annoying. I just hooked my 38ft 5th wheel for the first time. It was smoother and easier than any other hitch I have ever used. I bought the sider unit which is recommended by all for the short bed. However I cannot use the slider as the king pin box slides too close to the tall tail gate. The new 2017 F250 is taller and the bed is deeper so I needed a hitch that would go up to 19 ½ inches. I will update after a my first run with trailer later this month. Everyone at E-trailer was outstanding. 5 Star. I will keep using them in the future. 303415

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Just want to give some kudos to the folks at etrailer. Descriptions and videos are on the money. Awesome shipping along with tracking , received my curt Q20 on time and installed per manufacturers instructions. The one issue I had with installation was torquing the 4 bolts. The 2 in front went easy, but the ones in back the torq wrench did not fit so had to take the hitch head off and pull hitch out of truck and turn over to torq the bolts. Little pain but not to bad. Etrailer keep up the good work. Scott 302418

After watching a YouTube video, assembly wasn't a problem. Hitch seems ok, haven't used it enough yet. The one problem I Have at this time is the Curt decal on the hitch head was installed crooked . It looks like a kid put it on. If I can't get another one I'll tear that one off and repaint if needed 634939

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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 574834

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

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


This is one of the finest hitches I have ever had. I love the ease of operation, the strength it has, and its light weight enough that I can remove it by myself if I want to take my hitch completely out of the bed of my truck. It is a breeze to connect and disconnect by myself, which is a major plus for this solo traveler. The other bonus is the small profile in the bed of the truck, and I still have room to load all my art gear for a show. I would highly recommend it to everyone! 584507

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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. 607787

This 5th wheel hitch fits OEM hitch mount provisions perfectly on my 2017 Ram 3500. Connecting and disconnecting works well. This hitch is heavy for one person to manage, but a hoist set-up makes for easy installation and removal. Tows well with no play between trailer pin and truck. Great product. 625666

  • How Long is the Warranty on the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Rails and Universal Installation Kit part # C16131 comes with a 10-year warranty. That said, this hitch is an excellent option that we do not have many issues with at all so I am sure it will last and perform well for you. If anything were to happen outside of the 10 year warranty period, you can replace sections of the hitch without buying an entire new one.

  • Is it Possible to Tow a Fifth Wheel Using a Flat Bed Cab and Chassis Truck
    You could certainly attach a fifth wheel hitch. Usually, you'll see them attached directly to the flat bed, like part # RP30054. This would indeed be a custom installation, as there aren't any install kits available for this application. The exact install procedure would depend on the nature of the truck bed as well the opinion of the installer. Be sure to use a professional welder who's experienced in trailer and towing work. The hitch would usually install so that the king pin would...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Options for a Flat Bed Truck with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    The only option that does not require removing the gooseneck hitch would possibly be the Hi-Rise, # 9480. If the gooseneck trailer hitch is a B&W Turnover Ball, Hide-A-Goose by Draw-Tite or Reese or Under-Bed by Bulldog then you can use the Hi-Rise. Otherwise you would need to remove the gooseneck hitch then have a 1/2 inch steel plate welded to the frame by a qualified professional. Then you could use the Reese low-profile hitch # RP30054.

    In order to haul a 48 foot gooseneck trailer you will need a gooseneck hitch installed in either of the vehicles you mentioned. We do not offer a gooseneck option for flatbed trucks as it will require a custom hitch and installation to accommodate the gooseneck. You could use an adapter like part # KPG5-R25-IP with the gooseneck on your trailer to work with a fifth-wheel hitch installed on the truck.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch that Fits in 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Rails on a 2013 GMC Sierra
    The Q20 5th wheel trailer hitch fits in above the bed rails. There are several gooseneck plates that you can use in those rails. If you want to stick with Curt then you can use # 16085. I personally like # 49080 because it can be positioned with the ball further back in an offset position for additional clearance between the trailer and truck. I have linked all the plates. Please note the only one that you cannot use is # RP30845 because it only fits a Reese Elite series underbed system.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a Flatbed 1990 Ford F-250
    Flatbeds are unique in that the bed is further from the frame than on a regular truck bed. The installation kits are not designed for flatbed trucks. You would need a special hitch, # RP30054, which requires a custom installation performed by a qualified fabricator/welder. You can take a look at the installation instructions I have linked to the right to see what is required for this installation.

    Yes, the rail kit of the Curt Q20 and Universal Rail Kit part # C16636 does fit your 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 long bed, but since you have a long bed truck you don't need to have a slider hitch. You can get by with the lighter weight and easier to manage fixed hitch version of this kit part # C16131 though since slider hitches are only needed on short bed trucks where turning clearance is harder to come by .
