Secure, Two-Piece Jaw

Q24 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).


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.

Have not had the opportunity to use the new hitch to pull our RV, but did hook up to the RV to check height and ease of hookup, it's great, very happy with this hitch so far. Ease of ordering was excellent, received it within 5 days in great condition.


Comments
In the last year we have pulled a 16,000 lb Jayco 5th Wheel over 3,200 miles, up and down mountains and across flat lands with no problems. Still easy hookup and no troubles with it latching or in latching. We grease it and re-torque the bolts as per manufacturer recommendation, a little routine preventive maintenance goes a long way. Still very happy with the hitch, and would definitely recommend it, and have several times.

I bought this hitch because I am a firm believer in buy heavier than I need for safety. This hitch has been absolutely wonderful. The fifth wheel pull great with no jarring and the solid feel when attached is comforting. I can easily reach everything I need to set the hitch and lock it. The jaws are very easy to tell if I am completely hooked or not and the lock works great for a quick look to tell if ready. This hitch was very well priced (cheaper than lighter rated models) without being of "cheap" quality. I have enjoyed this hitch very much and thank goodness it breaks down into pieces for removal as it is a very heavy unit.

Got my Curt Q24 finally. A very good, quality, heavy hitch. It was just a little scratched up, in same spots as all others seems to post - do to shipping by UPS. Etrailer did double box it to help, so all in all it wasn't bad. It is definitely a heavy hitch, but being able to quickly break it into pieces (head removes easily) makes it much more manageable to put in and out of the truck. Can't wait for the trailer to get in so I can try out this hitch... Installed onto Curt rails in a 2006 F350, with no issue. Will be pulling a 18k 43' 5er soon! Shipping was a bit on the slow side compared to other reviews - took 2 weeks to get it, but luckily my trailer is also delayed so I didn't need it immediately.

first off the parts arrived as promised and without damage. the installation instructions were ok but watching your installation video filled in the gaps. it took me about about 4hrs to install most if that time was measuring. On my 2018 Ram 3500 I needed a variety of tools including impact gun, air ratchet crow foot but in the end just nuts and bolts! so far I am pleased with the Curt q24 fifth wheel hitch and based on what the RV dealer wanted for one of theirs the hitch and my DIY labor it was a bargain!

Curt Q24 hitch recieved quickly and in good condition. The box was banged up a little but the contents were good. I have installed this hitch but havent used it yet. Really good quality and beefy so I believe it will work very well. Probably one of the best 5th wheel hitches out there for the money.

Ordered my Curt 24k 5th wheel hitch on Tuesday, received around 230 Friday, and was installed by 5pm same day ( already had the rails). I am anxious to hook up my Heartland Big Country 3650RL to my 2006 Chevrolet dually and roll down the highway. The hitch is alI i expected it to be, and it is quite heavy, but managed to get it installed by myself after reading the great installation instructions. As in other posts, slight scratches during shipping due to packing materials used by Curt, not etrailer's fault. My RV has a tongue weight of 2350 lbs, 14000 overall, and 39'6" lenghth. Expectations are high that this hitch will handle it well! Thanks for the great service



- C16245
by:

Easy to use. Hook up is smooth. The draw handle pulls easily when ready to disconnect. Just be sure to have the weight of the trailer off of the truck before trying to pull the handle. I have found that the handle does not always lock in the open position and occasionally needs to be held open as the truck is driven forward.

by:

Haven't towed with it yet,but looks like it will be more user friendly than my previous hitch.I had to adjust my rails a little to get it to fit.Shipping speed was excellent. While etrailer wrapped and stapled over the manufacturer box the contents when opened had several places where the paint was missing due to parts rubbing together during shipment.

by:

Received my hitch very quickly, two days with free shipping. However, the hitch did arrive with a couple scraps. The company needs to work on the packaging and shipping prep. That being said, I am very happy with the hitch and the company. I called them prior to buying it and they answered all my questions, very helpful. I'd definitely buy another product from them.

Product is great. The shipping from the trucking company in Harrisburg was slow it took longer for them to get the hitch to my house then it did to ship from your facility to Harrisburg and that is only 30 miles away. Not to happy with Estes service. But happy with etrailer they did their part.

We took it to a shop to have it installed. It looks great, and the features to make sure our 5th wheel is securely locked in place give us peace of mind. And it's nice that the rails are made just for our 2016 Ram 3500 long bed. It really is well made and is a brute. Can't wait to get out on the road.

Great product. I used it on both a Ram 3500, and now a 17 F250 crew cab with a regular bed. Pros: Seem well built, heavy duty. Less chucking than my last hitch for an all around smoother ride. I've pulled both a 27ft and 45 ft fifth wheel travel trailer with it. Cons: Does not work with the sidewinder travel trailer adapter. You have to purchase the A-series CURT hitch to use that product. My Ram 3500 had an 8ft bed so I didn't pay attention to that at the time. Now that I have a regular bed, I thought I could just buy the sidewinder to get better clearance, but that did not work out. Note: the sidewinder wedge adapter for the A-series does not work with this hitch.

Very strong hitch. I like that it easily can be taken apart, makes it not so heavy to install. Glad it has grease fittings, should last longer. Positive indication of locking to kingpin. Came within 2 days of placing the order. Dual jaws give a sense of security.

Works well, good workmanship, good materials, good value. I hope to use it for years to come.

This hitch is very easy to take in and out of the bed of the truck. Comes apart in 2 pieces very easily, making it fairly light weight to move. Like the yellow, green and red indicators for easy hitching and unhitching. The big issue I have is that there is not much side to side movement in the head itself, making it hard to hitch back up if the the truck or camper is not sitting fairly evenly. Was told this hitch had good side to side movement, but do not think that is true. The only side to side movement comes from the give in the bushings.

Haven’t had time to install the 5th wheel hitch yet but everything went very smooth. Matthew was very helpful in making sure I was getting the correct 5th wheel hitch for my needs. All boxes came with minimal damage even though the parts were very heavy. I’m impressed with etrailer!

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • Solution for Short Bed 2018 Ram 3500 Towing Trailer with Truck Cab Interference
    Typically short bed trucks need slider fifth wheel hitches to have enough turning clearance which it sounds like is your main issue. The slider hitch moves back and gives you clearance to make tight turns. Problem is there's no way to use a fifth wheel hitch with the trailer you sent in a picture of. You do have the factory fifth wheel rail kit in your 2018 Ram 3500 so the best option is a slider hitch that attaches to it like the Curt Q24 slider part # C16546 with the Ram rail kit...

    The handle/release design of the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16245 is supposed to work like a ratchet almost. You pull out and release once and the handle should show yellow which means the jaws are unlocked and ready to accept a king pin. Once a king pin passes through the jaws it will lock into place and the handle will show green meaning you are safe to tow. Then to release it you pull the handle and release it and the jaws will unlock, the handle will show the color red,...

  • Experiencing Chucking When Towing a Car Trailer with a 2010 GMC 3500 Diesel and Curt Q24 Hitch
    There are a few things to look that could cause chucking when towing a fifth wheel trailer. The Curt Q24 is one of the best hitches on the market to reduce chucking when towing a fifth wheel trailer. The first thing I would check is to make sure everything in your towing set up does not exceed any capacities. The weight of your trailer does fall within the capacity of this hitch, but based on my research of your 2010 GMC 3500 Dually 6.6L turbo diesel, the weight of your trailer is close...

They eliminate altogether the need for frame drilling and they naturally cost more for this reason.
