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.

Showed up quickly, this is the 3rd purchase from etrailer.com, they have great customer service, they know their products, prices are reasonable and they ship fast. I also purchased the bed cover from them.

etrailer's online information was accurate & correct. I'd purchased the same hitch from one of their competitors & needed to return it since they were supposedly unaware that GMC changed there tow package hole spacing in 2020. Delivery of my Curt Q25 for my 2021 Chevy 2500 was quick, when promised & the correct product. With the bed tow preparation package installation was a snap, 4 bolts to assemble & install. It took me about an hour and a half total which included uncrating & searching for my torque wrench.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I have ran a cheap competitor hitch for several years. A manufacturing defect (welded pivot pin) caused the hitch to fail and resulted in 18000$ damage to my truck and trailer. I chose the Curt 25000# hitch after much research and found it to be very well made and clearly shows when it is properly coupled. It is quiet and operates with minimal klunking and chunking going down the road. Overall I am very pleased.


Comments
My hitch is still flawless and looks new. After a year and at least 30 trips, I have no complaints and would still highly recommend the Curt 2500# hitch

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Excellent product arrived in good shape! Don’t worry about the packaging they take good care and the product is made of steel which is pre-assembled with the parts that allows you to put it right in the back of your truck!! Other than the weight it took us about 30 minutes to install it was a breeze. We towed our new fifth wheel 560 miles back home and it was awesome!

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Mounted this hitch on my flatbed 3500 Ram and the hitch works flawlessly. Pull 44' tri-axle weighing in at 23,000# with ease. Very easy to use and understand, very easy to maintain.


Comments
The hitch is still working flawlessly and have pulled numerous trailers with it. Would purchase another

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Assembled and installed myself. Am experienced so would recommend an installer otherwise. 45 min finish time. Hauls smooth as butter without the usual creaks and groans of the old school hitches. Hooking and unhooking are simplified with the site aids built in. Big Thanks E Trailer and Curt.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Overall very happy with my Curt 5th wheel 24k hitch. I’m happy it came in pieces because of the weight totally assembled. Release spring for the slide is pretty stiff but I wouldn’t want it disengaging while driving down the road. Thanks for all your help Justin and your prompt service.

Super fast shipping. Hitch arrived today and I installed it in about 30 minutes. The box it arrived in was beat up but the hitch was packed well and arrived in perfect condition. It’s very sturdy and all the hardware is top grade. I will be making more purchases from etrailer.

Wow Wow Wow I ordered this hitch on the 16th it shipped the same day and I received it on the 18th and installed it within 45 min by myself. The hitch is just as advertised awesome quality and was packed well and a breeze to install.


Comments
After a year and several thousand miles I can tell you the hitch is awesome. We replaced a old hitch that rocked and rolled and with the new hitch you can hardly tell the fifth wheel is behind the truck. We love it and its so easy to connect with the pin.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


This hitch has been very good no sloppiness easy to operate. Fits in the pickup quick. I’m 67 years old and it’s light enough when separated in two pieces ( which is easy to do ) that I can lift it in and out by my self. Happy customer

It’s great

Outstanding product and excellent value. I was able to install it in 30 minutes. The dealer where I purchased a fifth wheel trailer from wanted to know where I had purchased it from. Thank you very much. John B.

One year later I am as pleased today as I was when I purchased the hitch. There isn’t anything any better out there!

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Couldn’t have had an easier order! I ordered my hitch on a Saturday and it arrived by Tuesday in 2 boxes. I was easily able to assemble the hitch in under 30 minutes by myself. The ease of the drop in system is amazing! This was purchased for my 2018 Silverado 3500HD, for towing mainly my 5th wheel but I can also pull anything I want/need! If I ever had to buy another hitch for any reason I don’t think I could beat the ease of ordering thru etrailer not to mention the best prices around. If I ever need to I would definitely shop here first. Glad I purchased here instead of paying more at the dealer for the same thing.

This is the first 5th wheel hitch I have owned but have been using them for years. I loved the ease of the installation. 4 bolts & 4 cam locks and you are up and running. Love the Green, Yellow & Red indicators. With the Green dot showing, I know it's locked in. Thank you all for a great hitch.

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Ordered the Q25 on Monday and it arrived Friday as promised. The unit was very well packaged and there was no damage as I've read about in other reviews. This went into my 2017 Ram 3500 long bed with the puck system. Installation was easy and took about 30 minutes working by myself. I had watched the installation videos prior to delivery. The unit is very solid and appears well built. I'll be hooking up to my 38' Montana on Monday for the maiden voyage. I expect complete satisfaction. Customer service from my first call through installation was fantastic! Coupled with the best price I could find I will forever be looking to eTrailer for my towing and trailer needs!

Review from a similar Q25 in Fifth Wheel Hitch


The Curt Q 25 is a great hitch. It came from etrailer within 2 days The reason I am not giving it a 5 star is that the packaging was open in one corner and I am missing a bolt. I never had a chance to inspect it since it was dropped off by the carrier without notice. (We we’re home)

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • Will a Curt Q-25 Fit in a 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed and without the OEM Prep Package
    I have a solution for you, but there are two issues here; the Curt Q-25 # C97FR is designed to fit in the OEM prep package for Chevy/GMC trucks and typically a non-sliding hitch is only recommended for trucks with 8 foot long beds. If you've determined that your trailer is configured in such a manner that it won't contact the cab of the trailer when making turns and you've got an OEM prep package you can use the # C97FR. However, you've indicated that you don't have the OEM prep package...

  • Will Fixed B&W Companion and Curt 5th Wheel Hitches Fit Short Bed 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 Puck System
    The factory puck system in the long bed and short bed of the 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 does have the same spacing, so you can use any of the fixed (non-sliding) 5th wheel hitches you mentioned in your '21 Sierra 3500's short bed: - B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3710 - Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C84FR - Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C97FR These are all high-quality...

  • Will the Curt Q25 Also Fit in the Short Bed 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 OEM Pucks
    Yes. The Curt Q25 # C97FR does also fit in the OEM prep package on the short bed (6-3/4 foot) versions of the 2020 GMC Sierra 2500. If you're confident that you won't need a slider hitch or pin box with a rotating turret this is the correct choice,. With that said, it should be noted that the Q25 hitch is not compatible with rotating turret pin boxes because of the spherical axial bearing that the head sits on, so if you would need to switch to one later on to provide turning clearance,...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 - Curt Q25 with OEM Towing Prep Package
    Yes, this will include everything needed to install. Please see the product review video linked below. The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C97FR, is for Chevy/GMC trucks with the OEM puck system. This is the heavy duty dual jaw model for 25,000 lbs. with a vertical load limit is 6,250 lbs.

  • Recommended Height For Item # C97FR In A 2021 GMC Sierra 3500
    I wouldn't say there is actually a formula for setting the height for the Curt Q25 Item # C97FR on a 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 . It is recommended that the bottom edge of the nose on your 5th wheel is 6 inches above the bed rails. I typically set the hitch height in the middle initially. This seems to be the standard height of most campers. Once height is set, hook the camper up and check the distance between the bed rails and the bottom edge of the nose. If you have close to 6" you are good...

  • Difference Between Curt Q24 and Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 With Pucks
    The only difference between the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C37FR and the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C97FR is in fact the extra 1,000 lb towing capacity of the Q25. They actually have the exact same legs, but the head unit of the Q24 is rated for 24,000 lbs towing while the head unit of the Q25 is rated for 25,000 lbs towing. Apart from that they have the same unique interlocking dual jaw system and handy...
