Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Q20 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).


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.


Non-Binding Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' and 6-1/2' beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


The round-tube design of this slider allows for relatively uninhibited movement of your fifth-wheel hitch. Because your hitch can glide smoothly and easily along the rods, there is less chance of binding.


With straight, flat contact points, as found with square-tube sliders, tension can build between the slider and the hitch when your truck and trailer are somewhat out of line or are on uneven ground. As a result, it can be difficult to properly activate the slider when your truck and trailer are not in a straight line.


With a round-tube slider, there is more give between the contacting surfaces, allowing better mobility of the hitch system. Fewer corners means less tension buildup. Activating a round-tube slider is easier, and operation as a whole is smoother.

I was pretty concerned because of some of the negative ratings regarding the shape that the package arrived. I am pleased to say that it arrive on the pallet in perfect shape , the boxes were not even scratched or dented. The hitch assembly was pretty straight forward however I did use Loctite on the allen screws and any other bolts that did not come with lock washers.Now for the performance of the hitch , I pulled my 38 foot toy hauler for the first time and it performed flawlessly. there was no chucking noises , or excessive bucking at all . The sliding feature was smooth and easy to operate , which is why I upgraded to this hitch in the first place .

A great price shipped fast via freight. No issues with broken boxes as many others have mentioned. First fifth wheel for me, assembly and install into the factory Ford pucks was amazingly easy. Do not know for certain if the slider will be necessary for our new Arctic Wolf camper. We may swap out for stationary legs if we can get away with it. I love etrailer!

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

The more I use the hitch the better it works. Initially it was hard to hitch and unhitch. I have found it to work better when you get your height correct for hooking up. Slider is really good for tight spots I wouldnt chance damage to my truck or RV. It is heavy one should make sure you have a way of removing and installing it with some type of lift.

Bought this Curt Q20, dropped right in place in our F350 with the preinstalled puck system, tow our Avalanche 320RS, easy hook up and easy discount. Love this setup. A great hitch with a great price from Etrailer

I purchased this unit a year ago and could not be happier. It performs beautifully and is solidly made. Assembly and installation was a snap for me. I take out during periods of extended non-use and the process is simple both removing and re-installing. I would recommend highly.

I have not unboxed the hitch yet, but with a quick look because of a little damage to the corners of the boxes, everything seems good. I plan on using the sliding hitch in a 2019 F-350 short bed. Hopefully after all the reviews and information put out by etrailer the usage should be great. The experience with etrailer has been remarkable.

Pros: I've been using this hitch for about a year to tow my 5th wheel, and I've probably hooked up to it about 20 times. It's a really great hitch, easy to work, and I really like the color coded features (red, yellow, and green) that show when the hitch is connected or not and ready to tow. I haven't used the slider so I can't comment on that other than it appears to be easy enough to use. I LOVE the puck system to install it in the bed of the truck. As far as etrailer, they are great! They asked some questions to help me determine my needs, and then they provided a number of possible hitches. They were great about answering any questions I had. I've purchased several things from them in the past, and I HIGHLY recommend etrailer!!! Cons: There were a few places in the installation documentation that could have been easier to decipher. There were several videos online showing how the product works, but I couldn't find anything showing how to put it together. This would have been extremely helpful. Also, CURT claims this is a two man lift and can be easily removed from the truck. NOT TRUE! This thing is HEAVY, but it's supposed to be. Unless you have a piece of equipment to help lift it you should plan on leaving it installed.


Comments
I apologize for the delayed response. I think Ive had the hitch for about two years now, and I use it to tow a fifth wheel RV quite a lot throughout the year with my Ford F-250. Its been a great hitch and is really easy to use. Probably the best part about it is that it uses the in-bed puck system. I have no regrets on this purchase.

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I purchased the Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch to tow a Cedar Creek Champagne with a 2016 Ram 3500 DRW. This hitch is easy to install with and easy to operate. I put it together in about an hour with one other person. I have towed about 2400 miles with it over the past few months and haven’t had any problems or noticeable wear. Don’t forget to retorque your bolts when you are supposed to!

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Just installed yesterday Aug. 14; received it On the 13th. Reasonable delivery time. I had some minor frustrations while installing but nothing that was too difficult. Anyone that is the DIY type should have no problem installing a hitch of this type. I am a healthy 71 and with head removed can handle the removal of unit without too much trouble. It will be removed quite often so we can load our ATV in the PU bed at our remote camping sites. Seems like a strong unit. Hope to head out with our trailer next week. And test it out. Ours is a 13K toyhauler so hitch should handle it well.

I have not pulled with this yet, but after lifting this to put it together, it's going to be durable because this hitch is heavy. You will need two people to get it out of your truck or use the trailer to lift it out and store it on the 5th wheel hitch.

Heavy duty!... pretty easy setup. Not the best instructions, but anyone with half decent mechanical ability can figure it out. You have to take the head off to torque the slider rails.

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


All three packages (317 lbs total) arrived a day early. Two out of three boxes were heavily abused with one of the two having the inside packaging totally destroyed - see photos. Believe it or not none of the content were damaged or missing. Apparently UPS does not care for the heavy stuff… Overall, great customer service, knowledge of 5th wheel was right on and polite after the sale service. It is about my fifth order using etrailer and will not hesitate to use again. Thanks to all involved.

    All of the underbed kits for your 2019 Ford F-350 (short bed) are about the same when it comes to pricing so I recommend using the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP87FR for a few reasons; the first reason is that this is the exact same as the OEM puck system so when it comes time to change your tow vehicle you can market your pickup as such, and then the second reason is that with this underbed system you have a LOT more options when it comes to 5th wheel hitches.

  • Why Does Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch have to Be Slid Forward When Towing
    No you cannot do that. The maneuver position of a sliding fifth wheel hitch is only designed for parking lot speeds. It moves the pin weight of the fifth wheel hitch behind the rear axle of the truck and in doing so unweights the front axle of the truck. This means that braking power and handling would be diminished to a point it would be very dangerous at anything higher than highway speeds.. We one time had a guy drive here to etrailer with his fifth wheel somehow stuck in the maneuver...
