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.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - C16039 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q25 Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Ford Super Duty towing prep package. Has a 24,000-lb weight capacity. This is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. On a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. This is a 5th wheel hitch that will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th wheel trailer. Uses a nice 2 jaw locking system here to provide a 360-degree jaw to king pin contact, and because of that it'll give you less rattle, more security than your slide bar models. Does offer 3 lube points for lubricating.

There's 1 right down there, there's 1 on this side, and 1 on this side, so all 3 of those are a easy to access grease zerk fitting which means you can just pop your grease gun on there and fill it full of grease. The head itself uses a unique spherical axial bearing which allows easy pivoting of the hitch head, gives you a nice smooth 360-degree movement, not just front to back or side to side tilting and it also has built in cushioning to help absorb any road shock. It does give you a hitch height adjustment, basically your hitch height would be measured from your truck bed to your top of your hitch head, and you want that to be right for your application because when you're towing your 5th wheel you want it to be as level as possible. To set that, it will give you a range of 4" so there's 3 rows of holes on this crossmember that'll bolt to these legs and depending which 1 you put it in, it'll give you a hitch height anywhere from 13" up to 17". A main feature on this hitch is it uses a 3-point indicator system right here on the back of the handle, and it is color coded which will tell you if the hitch is ready to uncouple, couple, or tow. What I'm going to try to do is let me just try to spin this hitch around to show you what we're talking about and demonstrate it.

Once we get this all turned around then you should be able to see the color. Right here, if you look right in this round area you'll see green showing, what that's telling you is green means your jaws are locked close so it's safe to tow. These jaws are locked around the king pin so you're ready to go, and what's nice about this, this color coating is viewed from your cab so if your cab's right here, and you're turned around if you're hooking up, you can look out the back and look at that color coating. Just by looking at what color is showing, it'll tell you the position of the jaws. Basically, if we open the handle, unlock it, pull the handle out, just like that you can see the jaws popped open, now it's showing yellow. If you're in your cab you can look back there and see that it's yellow, yellow means the jaws are ready to couple, it's safe to back into your truck to couple up to your 5th wheel, and then by chance if it shows red in there, red will just basically mean that the jaws are locked open, it's safe to pull your truck away but you do not couple when it's showing red.

Just like that, gives you quick access. This handle is a nice lockable handle. You'll notice when you close this, you can flip this down, it'll line the holes up and then you can run the pin and clip through. It is a very short throw single handle operation, and what's nice with this handle is it will self reset to the ready to couple position after uncoupling. Also, this has a 2 pin head removal you can see, makes it very easy for 1 person to remove the hitch. See if I can move this over a little bit.

You can see right here, if you pull these 2 clips out, there's a clip here and a clip here, pull those and then pull those pins out. You can remove the center head from the crossmember then you can take it apart as pieces so it makes it easy for 1 person to remove it. Let me spin this back around. This hitch will come with the plastic lube plate. That's this part right here, this plastic lube plate will let your king pin, it goes onto your king pin, helps it glide smoothly into the hitch during hookup. When you go to install this whole hitch into your Ford towing prep package, they use quarter turn anchors, turn it back a little bit, you can see right here, what you'll do is to drop this into the 4 openings on your truck bed, pop open the pin and clip, rotate these quarter turn anchors open, and you'll see the tabs will rotate. That puts them in line with the pucks that are in your truck bed, you'll do that on these 2 corners also. With them all open you'll drop that, it'll go into the pucks in there and then just rotate the handles back a quarter of a turn, and then twist that tab to lock it into the pucks on your bed. Once you get them locked in, just take your pin and run it through the handle, and just run it through the hole in the other handle and then clip it into place and it locks the handles. It's pretty simple installation. To remove it, the same way, just take your pin and clip off, open that up, open it up over there and you can remove it right from there. The other nice thing, if you notice, there's these nuts right here on the top of the anchors, these can be adjusted to eliminate any chucking between the legs and the pucks. This hitch is a sturdy steel construction, has a nice durable carbide powder coat finish over it. A few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity, again, is 24,000-lbs, vertical load limit is 6,000-lbs. The hitch height we had mentioned, depending on where you put it will give you a range of 13" to 17" and the last thing I want to show you, we open the handle and the jaws are open so I just want to demonstrate how it would connect into your king pin. This is what a king pin would look like on your 5th wheel, so basically what will happen is when you're hooking up this king pin slides in between the two jaws. It comes back far enough you can see both jaws will wrap around it 360-degrees so it's locked into place. Your handle, if you notice, it automatically sets and locks. Again, if you look at the color, the color coding on the indicator system's showing green. Green means jaws are locked close, you're safe to two. All you have to do is flip this over, put your pin and clip in, and that locks your handle down, you're all ready to tow and get on the road. If you need to remove it, same way, just pull out the handle, and this will pop right out. That should do it for the review on the Curt Q25 Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Ford Super Duty towing prep package with a 24,000-lb weight capacity.

Easy to use lock lever with colour Indicator so you know its locked. Removable head so not too heavy for installing and removing from factory puck system. 555127

Use this hitch in a 2017 F350 Dually using factory puck attachment to tow a 20,000 41 Ft trailer. Very easy to hitch and unhitch trailer, and tows with little chucking and popping. The ability to remove the top portion with four pins makes it a one-person job to install and remove the hitch from the bed of the pickup. The color coded locking indicator makes hitching nearly fool proof. You can spend a lot more, but I don’t think you would actually get a better hitch. Great value for a good towing solution. 588037

Had recently purchased a 2017 F-350 with the factory underbed 5th wheel/gooseneck mounts. My old hitch would not work with this system. Received some advice from Troy on the available hitches and ordered the Q25. Arrived at 10am yesterday, took me about 1.5 hours to install. The instructions were very clear. I followed the instructions for measuring the height of the hitch for establishing a level ride for the trailer. The problem then was insufficient clearance for the bed rails. Had to unbolt and rebolt the hitch to the legs on the center bolt holes. The only minor complaint is access to the bolts for tightening. Especially an issue when I had to use the center holes. Connecting and disconnecting to the trailer was very easy. 4 stars only because of the bolt issue. 441164

Very easy hitch to use! Also like the ease of removing the hitch to use the full bed of the pickup. Can remove by myself but is definitely easier with two people. Great hitch!

So far I like this hitch. It is easy to use and you probably don't have to read the instructions to use it. That is it is intuitive. I was able to install the unit by myself even though the complete unit is heavy. I moved the parts into the truck bed in pieces and assembled it there. I found the plate assembly had to be removed in order to torque the bolts to the side brackets. My only concern is the ease for anyone to remove and take the clips and pins. Hopefully not. The other issue is the hitches box was pretty much destroyed when I received it and the legs, packaged separately, were not packed securely. Even though, the only damage was some paint scraping. 398866

Best fifth wheel hitch I've ever owned, easy to install easy to adjust. Ordered this from etrailer on the weekend and it came on Tuesday, the great team etrailer never fail to amaze me. If you're looking for a great product and always the best price you found it at etrailer.com. not to mention the great reviews they do on most of their accessories. I always buy here and have never been disappointed. You will need a torque wrench for this item the bolts need to be torqued to the value listed in the instructions. 554106

Purchased a CURT Q 25, looks like a good solid product. Asked whats the difference between the Q 24 & Q 25. Brint responded within a day. even though the Q 25's weight rating says 24,000 lbs. it's really 25,000 lbs. 3 million huge staples in the box & the handle was still able to poke through the box. I was told it was on back order for over a month, but it still showed up within a week of ordering it. Great tracking system!!!! 474296

Super fast delivery. As advertised it is well packaged and heavily constructed however after I assembled I had to readjust it multiple times so that the puck system would lock into place on my F350. Once it was firmly mounted in place it hooked up nicely to fifth wheel. Overall satisfied with finish product and I would buy again. 447256

Was easy to assemble and install in the truck with a couple of minor adjustments to the coupling handles to the truck. My first use, was easy to pull the Hitch handle and open the King pin receiver jaw, but was a bit difficult to pull the when trying to unhitch the trailer from the truck until adjusting the truck position to be able to pull the handle for the jaw to release. Will have try it few times to see if it improves, or I get better parking just right to release. Will update later 453332

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


Three concerns/issues. One, is that my truck sits so high up in the air, (Dodge Power Wagon) that when I was hauling the trailer I had so many issues with swaying. If you tow behind is not fairly level this will happen. It took a long time to figure this out. Might want to pass this along to other customers Two. Should the white disc go between the hitch and the tow behind as a protective disc? Three. on pull behinds there are chains or cables in the event that the trailer unhooks from the hitch ball. There are no safety cables or chains for a fifth wheel. How come? Just inquiring. 599459


Comments

The lube plate goes over the kingpin between the bottom of the pin box and on top of the skid plate of the 5th wheel. The lube plate is so that you dont have to grease the bottom of the pin box to avoid metal to metal contact. The lube plate you will use with Curt fifth wheel part # C16566 is lube plate part # 16721

. Consumer 5th wheel applications connect to the truck the same way that big rigs connect to trailers and this is considered a secure enough connection to not require safety chains. Items that connect to a ball do require safety chains.

So the only problem I've seen so far was damage to the box. The box looked as if it had fell out of the truck a few times. The legs were scratched up but I'm ok with that. Instructions are easy. Install is simple. I have the factory rail and goose neck on a 2017 GMC 3500. The hitch is very heavy so I recommend putting it together in the bed unless you have help. It weighs 186lbs according UPS. Nice hitch. I have not used it yet. Comments on its performance will have to come later. 337676

Awesome hitch. I pulled a 20,000lb fifth wheel across the USA and it worked faultlessly. I have nothing but praise for this hitch. Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


The product is ok so far , there isn't any information on which holes equate to the 13 - 15 - 17" height setting . ALSO - the arm that activates the hook up for the jaws is very stiff and does not even come close to the ease of operation that the video shows. The shipping packages were very damaged and open at one end . The head was scarred as were the legs. The delivery person even suggested that we open the cartons to assess the damages. I figured that since everything was steel that not much could have been damaged so he left it at that. I had to use a thread chaser on one of the holes as it was cross threaded and would not accept the bolt. Besides all of this I hope the hitch is as robust as you all claim. Thank you - Mike 447661

It is always great to have a store where you know you are getting the best price & highest quality products. Our Curt 25000 lb hitch showed up quickly & the instructions were easy to follow. We have been enjoying several trips without any issues with noises, binding or unexpected loose & sloppy hitch engagement. It is nice to have a strong, clean and simple hitch that provides security in towing our 45’ toyhauler. Thanks for a wonderful product & experience. 581342

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


I purchased this hitch about a year ago. I have pulled my Artic Fox 24' fifth wheel about 6000 miles and love this hitch. It replace a reese fifth wheel with hitch. I absolutely love this hitch. It is very quite when pulling. No clunking when you stop and go. A big thanks goes to Cathy T. for helping me along with the process. I will say that before beginning to install it in your vehicle please read the directions. I installed this in a new chevy 3500 with the puck system on it. You will probably have to loosen up some of the locking nuts with cotter keys in them to get them to lock into place. (instructions tells you that you may have to do this) Hope this helps someone. 476885

Fantastic hitch setup! Four bolts and it's ready to go! Heavy duty 3/8" plate steel this thing is beefy. Actually this is my second Curt 5th wheel hitch, they make it too easy. I love them! I've purchased 3 5th wheel hitch products from etrailer each and every time I've never been disappointed. Fantastic site with downloadable instructions so you can see what your getting into before you buy. Got a question, etrailer staff will answer it. I highly recommend etrailer and Curt hitches. 410876

I am totally satisfied with my new hitch. Although once assembled it was heavy. Good thing my son was here to handle this one for me. I like the spread/footprint of the hitch and the mounting mechanism. Much better than the Ford and the Reece configuration. I can say that as I traded my F350 for Sierra 3500 Denali. Hooking my 5th wheel up and unhooking it is much easier than the Reese hitch. The time to receive my hitch was quick also. Thanks for a great product and your assistance. 355052

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. 344286

Heavy duty is an understatement for this hitch it is extremely well built. I chose the free shipping since originally I was not in a rush but as normal thing came up I called etrailer customer service and explained my situation they put a rush on the order and it was here in two days great customer care. One tip I would suggest since this hitch is heavy. I assembled it on the shop floor and then placed it in the bed of the truck only to find out that all the pucks were not level and one would not lock down. It was a simple fit of losing the bolts and allowing it to level out then retighten. I could have avoided this extra step by assembling it in the bed of the truck. 396505

Had a great experience with a great product. So refreshing to see something actual works as advertised. The site said it would fit my truck, be under the rail line and that was exactly the case. It takes about thirty minutes of real work to install. Working alone, it took me an hour - counting all the breaks. The GREEN/RED/YELLOW indicator on the handle makes it simple to know when it's locked, unlocked or ready to lock... Looking forward to hooking up the Toy Hauler. 410979

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


I am giving the hitch itself and etrailer a five star rating, as both are excellent. The big issue was all of the nuts and bolts were loose in the box and not in the plastic bags. After gathering up what I could find in the box I was still missing a washer. Thinking I would have to run to the hardware store I went ahead and took apart the hitch head and there was the washer wedged in the jaw mechanism. If I wouldn't have looked closely this could have caused issues with coupling to the 5th wheel. Also, for anyone thinking of installing this alone, don't. I did and it was brutal lifting this as it was heavy and awkward. Also, when replacing the head after removing it for installation, pay close attention to the sliding spacer on the rod that sits down in the mount. If the spacer slides it will not let you place the head all the way in the mount. Took me a while to figure that one out. 668796

I haul campers for a living and this hitch has worked great, no issues, great hitch for the money. The only thing I have done is add a teflon plate to the head so I dont have to grease the fifth wheel 623200

I really like the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that I installed on my Ram 3500. Makes hooking up and disconnecting so easy. The solid latching mechanism lets me know when i am locked up or when I am unlatched. How simple can it be to look at the indicator bar and figure out what the red, yellow, or green mean to me. No complaints after a year of using and the bottom line is - Yes, I would buy it again. 617465

  • Difference Between Curt Q24, Q25 and A25 Fifth Wheel Hitches for 2016 Ford Rail Kit
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and he said the difference between the Curt Q25 # C16039 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and the Q24 # C16545-16017 is that the pan is slightly larger on the Q25 and they reinforced the main square body as well as the legs for that extra capacity. The A25 # C16036 is a rebranded Q25 with a head that is made of stronger material. I would say yes, the Reese # RP30871 is better. Reese hitches tend to have quite a bit less movement in them and their heads...

  • Installing Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Kit
  • In order to install the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 referenced in your question on your 2019 Ford F-250 that is equipped with the factory prep kit, you will just need the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6175.

  • Difference Between Curt Q24 and Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitches
  • The only difference between the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 and Q25 # C16039 fifth wheel hitches is that the Q25 head is rated for 25,000 lbs while the head of the Q24 is rated for 24,000 lbs. However, the legs of both units are rated for 24,000 lbs which is why you see that both hitches have a towing capacity of 24,000 lbs (capacity is determined by the lowest overall rating). I've added links to video reviews of each hitch for you to take a look at.

  • Realistically the Curt Q25 # C16039 and Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 fifth wheel hitches are no different and will give the same performance. Both of these hitches will fit into the puck system of your 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty and have a 24,000 lb capacity. The head unit of the Q25 is rated for 25,000 lbs but the legs are rated for 24,000 lbs and the capacity needs to go by the lowest-rated component. The Q Series are solid fifth wheel hitches and will do their jobs but the better option...

  • Comparing the Curt Q24 and Q25 5th Wheel Hitches for a 2017 Ford F-350 with the OEM Prep Package
  • The only difference between the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 and the Curt Q25 # C16039 that you referenced is the weight capacity of the hitch head. The Q24 hitch head, part # C16545, is rated for 24,000 lbs while the Q25, part # C16565, is rated for 25,000 lbs. The reason that the part numbers you are looking at have the same weight capacity/rating is that the hitch legs that fit the OEM Ford Super Duty Towing Prep Package # 16017 are only rated for 24,000 lbs.

The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch # C16039, however, has the head rated for 25,000 lbs and the legs rated for 24,000 lbs. When you are towing you are always limited by your least rated piece of equipment. Since the Q25 is paired with legs rated for 24,000 lbs, that whole 5th Wheel Hitch is rated for 24,000 lbs. The legs for Ram and Chevy trucks are rated for 25,000 lbs so unless you plan on buying a Ram...

To use it with the factory rail kit, you will need to use an adapter like the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs # RP30156.

The A25 is the upgraded version of the Q series with the upgrades being stronger material for the hitch head and interlocking jaws that help reduce chucking (see attached pictures). Aside from that they are pretty much the same. The only difference from the Q24 to the Q25 is that the Q25 head unit is rated for 25,000 lbs which is 1,000 lbs more than the Q24.

No typical above-bed rails are needed since this 24K-rated hitch drops directly into the factory pucks in the bed. Since this is a fixed (non-sliding) type hitch it is suitable for 8-foot beds. If you have the 6-3/4-foot bed with factory prep kit you will instead use their 24K slider hitch model # C16545-16020.

The locking jaws do not come lubed from the manufacturer therefore before use, you will want to add a good about of grease such as part # L11350 to them. The lube will reduce friction which should get rid of the popping sound when you are starting and stopping. The...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch to Tow 22,000 Pound Trailer with 2017 Ford F-450 with Factory Rail Kit
  • I do have a solution for you, however you will not get the towing capacity you are needing by matching up the B&W Replacement Base # BWRVB3300 for your F-450 factory rail kit and the Replacement Head Assembly # BWRVC3006. This is because the replacement base itself has a towing capacity of 20,000 pounds, and a system will always be limited by its weakest component. This simply means that even though the replacement head features a higher 25,000 pound capacity, you will still need to follow...
