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.

Hitch showed up in three days. UPS destroyed one of the two boxes one is over 70 lbs. but this thing is pretty much bullet proof. To my surprise all the bolts and washers were still in the box even with the hole in the box and parts bag ripped open. Took less than ten minuets to assemble. Dropped right in to my F350 about a quarter turn on box bolts all there was to it. I Like easy! Works great!

This has been a great product I would buy another and still looks great after a year. I am a purchasing manager and after buying this 5th wheel from etrailer I send my co workers here the pricing is better than I get from my vendor

Although I am new to using fifth wheel hitches, I Found this one to be quite difficult to install, due to the height adjustment bolts and aligning holes located in a very awkward place (under the 100lb center unit). I would however like to highly commend etrailer for very prompt processing, and shipping of the order. I needed this hitch in two days, so I called their customer service to see what they could do. My order was processed within two or three hours of the call, and shipped out that very night! EXELENT CUSTOMER SERVICE, THANK YOU!!!

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!

This is my first hitch ever and it’s totally awesome. works flawless and I am a single retired man who is traveling by himself with a Grand Design fifth wheel and it been super easy Hooking up and disengaging my fifth wheel.

So far so good. Seems to be a good product. The only complaint would be that the plastic bushings where the pins go though , mating the two piece hitch together are tore and it has a clunk every time I start from a dead stop. Hook up and release works well and it’s built very stout in my opinion.

Best fifth wheel hitch I have ever purchased. I wish I could of had this type of hitch for my 2003 F-350. I use to have a Reese hitch that broke and left my fifth wheel laying on my bed rails it sure cost me a small fortune to get that fixed, I have hauled my new fifth wheel over 15,000 miles with out a problem what so ever. And some times I still have to look in the rear view mirror to make sure my trailer is still there. I recommend this product to anyone that pulls as much as I do, "Great Product". Sorry don't have any pictures...............

The Curt Q20 5th wheel trailer hitch went together easily. Be sure to read all the instructions prior to installing the hitch in your truck. I was somewhat disappointed in that the base pieces had places where the powder coat had rubbed off. The two pieces were packaged without being protected from each other. Would have been 5 stars except for the shipping damage. I'm excited to hook up to and pull.

This 5th-wheel hitch has worked flawlessly! When towing my 40' Keystone Montana RV, it's virtually like it's on rails at any speed. Recently, I made the mistake of turning too sharply trying to exit the parking area where it had been stored, and hit a supporting pole of a chain link fence 4" before clearing it. That tore off the rear cap of my RV, but the hitch didn't budge or bend one iota! That thing is as solid as a rock and utterly dependable! I don't believe I will ever have to have it repaired much less buy a new one. Thank you for a truly OUTSTANDING product!

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For Factory Pucks in 2020 Ford F250
    We've got several hitches that will work great for you, but I really like the A Series from Curt. The Curt A20, part # C16034 will drop right into the factory puck system in your truck bed, and after minimal initial adjustment be super easy to install and remove. The interlocking jaw system holds the trailer's king pin very tightly all the way around, which provides pretty smooth and quiet ride without all the chucking that would be experienced with other hitches that use a less sophisticated...

    Since your 2017 Ford F-350 has the 8ft bed and factory prep package, installation of the Curt Q20 5th Wheel, # C16530-16017, can be done by the consumer. The Ford OEM compatible legs on the Q20 hitch uses four lever handles that allow the pucks to fit lock into your Ford's towing package. The levers a moved out away from the hitch and then you set the hitch in the puck holes in the of your truck's bed.

  • Height Adjustability of Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and 2013 Ford F-350 Long Bed
    For a 5th wheel trailer you will want to have 5 or 6 inches from the tops of the bed sides to the bottom of the trailer overhang when the trailer and truck are level. The Curt Q20 for the Ford prep package, # C16530-16017, is height adjustable from 13 to 17 inches. But on most 5th wheel trailers you can also raise and lower the pin box for even more adjustments. No front to back adjustments are needed on a long bed truck like your 2013 Ford F-350. Height adjustments would be all you...

  • Can the 5th Wheel Hitch for a Ford Super Duty with Pucks be Used on a Chevy Heavy Duty with Pucks
    The Ford OEM puck system is different than the Chevrolet/GMC OEM puck system therefore, you can't use a 5th wheel hitch from one in the other. The Ford OEM system has pucks which are much closer together than on the Chevrolet/GMC OEM system. The other issue you have is that the 5th wheel hitch for a long bed is likely fixed and the 5th wheel hitch you need for a short bed is likely sliding unless you have a rotating pin box. However, the head from the 5th wheel hitch for a Ford OEM...

The fixed hitch, part # C16530-16017, is for long bed trucks or the sliding hitch, part # C16530-16020, is for short bed trucks.

    A Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin box is a very specific style of pin box replacement that allows short bed trucks to make tight turns without having to use a slider hitch. You would know if your trailer had one most likely. For more information on them check out the FAQ article I attached to the right. The jaws of the Q-Series Curt hitches are too wide for them to work with the Sidewinders.

    I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that what you are experiencing with your Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs # C16530-16017 is normal. This hitch is not designed to be able to be moved by hand. To help prevent movement and chucking (noise), this hitch was made with very tight clearances. Because of that it's not going to be able to be moved front to back by hand.

  • Where Is The Curt Q20 Hitch Made And Where Is The Steel From?
    The Curt 5th wheel hitches like # C16530-16017 are made overseas in Asia with steel from that region, but they are tested to meet US standards. Unless you are using a Sidewinder or have a Revolution pin box, I highly recommend you use a sliding 5th wheel hitch like # C16530-16020 or the Reese Elite Slider # RP30144 which is made in Mexico. Reese makes an adapter for the OEM Underbed Rails # RP30156, to allow the use of standard sliding hitches with the factory puck system, which greatly...

    I will start out by saying that the best trucks for towing 5th wheel trailers are 1-ton long beds. As far as capacity you might want to upgrade to a different trailer in the future so if you have a hitch with a high enough capacity now then you wouldn't have to worry about that later. You could split the different between 16k and 20k and go with an 18k, # RP30142. Or go with a higher capacity but less expensive 20k model such as # C16530-16017 or # BWRVK3300.

  • Which is Better for a Short Bed Truck, A Slider Hitch or a Fixed Hitch and Sidewinder
    Hands down a stationary hitch with a Sidewinder is a better setup than using a slider hitch with a regular pin box. You will be a better ride quality without having to deal with the hassle of operating the slider hitch every time you get in a parking lot. Slider hitches have a lot more moving parts so they tend to "chuck" more than a stationary hitch, plus they are much heavier. Sidewinders will make the trailer track better behind your truck around corners as well as make backing...

    To figure out at which height you need the hitch, jack the trailer so it's level. Measure from the underside of the pin box (not the king pin) to the ground, which will be measurement number 1. Then, also on level ground measure how high above the ground the floor of your truck bed is, which is measurement number 2. Subtract measurement 2 from measurement 1, and you'll get the needed height above the truck bed floor. All three companies make an excellent product, any one of the three...

  • Best Truck and 5th Wheel Hitch for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
    The Ram trucks are the most popular trucks for towing and what I would likely use if it were me. I recommend at least a 3/4 ton truck (such as a Ram 2500, Ford F-250, or Chevy/GMC 2500) with a long bed and a diesel motor. The 3/4 and 1-ton trucks will have the higher towing capacities and stronger suspension compared to the 1/2 tons.

  • Will Curt Fifth Wheel Hitches for Ford Hitch Prep Packages fit Reese Elite Rails
    That is an interesting question but the answer is yes. Reese makes the Ford hitch prep packages and they are essentially a rebranded Elite rails system.
