Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

Q24 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).

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.

Easy install, fit perfectly. Very plea sed!

Great hitch! Have pulled several hundred miles with it so far and very happy with the way it handles the 5r. Hookup and disconnect is a breeze.

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

Great product, well built. Only issue I had was the two flat head screws needed to be countersunk deeper, as they stuck up and destroy the lube plate.

- C16530-16025

So happy we found etrailer.com and this hitch. Greg was very accommodating and answered all of our questions. Shipping was quick and item arrived on time. Will definitely order from etrailer.com again.

- C16530-16025

Good product! The only issue we have found is trying to release the hitch, if the weight on the hitch plate is not just right the handle will not release.

- C16530-16025

Product is great; exactly what I imagined it would be like. Shipping containers (cardboard) suck.

the product is very good and is performing well.

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.

Quite pleased w hitch. Much less trailer snap than noticed w my old hitch. Was concerned about puck system initially but it seems very reliable

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth 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.

One year later… still going strong. Been up and down the east coast, from bar harbor, maine to key west, Florida… solid hitch here

Great product. Arrived faster than expected. Installed easily. Looking forward to many years of service out of the hitch. Customer service was great. Definitely recommend etrailer to everyone I know.

Great product.

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

I coupled this Curt Q20 sliding hitch with the Curt "Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider - Ram Towing Prep Package Item #C16022", it fits and works perfectly. etrailer's pricing was a welcome significant-amount less expensive than other online vendors' sites I researched for the exact same item. The entire assembly, hitch and adapter, is heavy as expected, around 200+lbs. I installed a light-duty (220lb single line/440lb double line) overhead electric hoist in the garage with a kingpin attachment for lifting this out when an empty bed is needed for hauling something other than the RV. The hitch works exceptionally well, provides the needed extra behind-cab clearance needed for the short-bed extended-cab Ram 2500 when set in "Maneuver Mode", tows over the rode exceptionally as if a regular hitch in "Towing Mode". Be sure to be on flat ground when attempting to change the slider's mode, it will not allow movement of the slider if more than a few degrees of incline is present, probably a great safety feature. I found that my Ram 2500 was easily able to handle the non-optimal loading in "Maneuver Mode" when being driven at low speed a short distance (few hundred feet) for final parking maneuvers, from a flat area to shift the hitch to camping and parking areas.

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

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!

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

etrailer did a great job with packaging this product with the factory OEM packaging inside additional reinforced boxes. The large heavy packages arrived in good shape. I had to return two of the same hitches I had originally ordered from Amazon because they were shipped in original OEM packaging with no extra packaging and arrived in poor shape with significant damage to the hitch. Overall very happy with the quality and performance of the Curt hitch. I installed a electric winch in my garage for easy removal and installation due to overall assembled weight of hitch. (Too old for lifting heavy objects or smarter with age?)

Great, no issues with hitch

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

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

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

Ordered via phone on a Wednesday. Was delivered on Friday. Ordered the slide that is compatible with my puck system. Came in three boxes. All parts and accessories were accounted for. Only issue was directions supplied was for the rail system. But, online video’s are out there to help with product instillation. Hitch is easy to connect and disconnect from king pin. Pins instead of bolts would make it easier to adjust the height but, once it’s set for your king pin, you are good. So measure first before you assemble the head.

Review from a similar Q20 in Fifth Wheel Hitch

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.

A year later...and everything still works like a charm. Ive had zero issues with this Q20 Hitch!
