Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

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.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - C16069 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Curt Q25 Dual-Jaw fifth-wheel trailer hitch for the Chevrolet GMC Towing Prep package. This has a 25,000-lb weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the Chevy GMC 2500 and 3500 trucks with the factory-installed Towing Prep package, starting in the year 2016. These legs are designed to drop right into the openings of the OEM under-bed hitch platform. For this video, I've mounted the legs to the crossmember and the head's all installed, so this is how it would look installed in your truck bed.

This does use a two-jaw locking system right here. It provides a nice 360-degree jaw-to-kingpin contact. Because of that, it will give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models. The head, mounted in this crossmember is on a nice, unique spherical axial bearing, and that allows easy pivoting of the hitch head. It does give you smooth, 360 degree movement, not just front to back or side to side tilting.

It does also give you nice built-in cushioning to absorb any road shock. It is a self-aligning head, and it pivots for simple hookup. The handle is a lockable handle, which will let you easily secure the trailer to the hitch. It comes with the pinning clip. If you want, you can also get a padlock, which we sell separately, that would go through here and give you extra security. The handle itself, when you operate it, is a short-throw single-handle operation.

We're going to show you that in a minute, how that works. Now, there are three lube points on the head that have easy to access grease fittings on the jaws for easy maintenance. There's one right in the very middle, and there's an arrow that points to it. There's a Zerk fitting right under the jaws. That one is to grease the lower bearing.

On each side, there's an arrow and Zerk fittings, one on each side. Those two are to grease the jaw pins. This hitch does offer the three-point indicator system, which is color-coded. This will tell you if your hitch is ready to uncouple, couple or two. This color indicator is visible from the cab, so if your cab's back here, you can turn around and look and see what color is showing. That will tell you the position of the jaws in your hitch head. What I'm going to do now is rotate this, just so we can see the colors we're talking about. If we've got this all turned around here, you can probably see right here is the color indicator. Right now it's showing green in that hole right there. Green means you're ready to tow. The jaws are closed around the kingpin, so you're all ready to go. It's locked into place. If it showed yellow, that would mean it's ready to couple. The jaws would be open. The handle would be out, and you'd be ready to couple up. Now, if it does show red, red means uncouple, so if you ended up trying to couple and it didn't do it correctly and it's showing red, that means before you do anything, you want to check it out to make sure you get it to where it's going to show green. It's green for tow, yellow for couple, and red for uncouple. What I'm going to show you here, we're going to pull the pin and clip the latch, and I'll show you that sharp throat handle. Just like that, you can see now the jaws are both open. You can see it's showing yellow, which means you're ready to couple. I've got an example. This is what a kingpin would look like on your pin box of your trailer. You'll notice as it goes in and closes the jaws, just like that, the handle goes all the way in, shows green, which means you're ready to tow. Then you can close that latch, because the handle's in place. Then just put your pin and clip right back in, and you're ready to go. It's very simple, just like that. This nice indicator, color-coded indicator system will help you see it from the cab. They do have, also, a two-pin head removal here, makes it easy for one person to remove the hitch. Just pull out these two clips, pull out these pins and you can lift the head out of the crossmember. Then you can take the crossmember out, and then the legs. Piece by piece, you could remove it if there's just one person around, you don't have any help. I am going to spin this back and show you that it does come with a plastic lube plate that is included. There we go. This plastic lube plate right here, this is designed to let your kingpin guide smoothly into your hitch during hookup. This will go around the kingpin of your trailer, so as it slides in, it will help it slide in easier. It also protects, keeps metal-to-metal contact between your pin box and your hitch head with this in between it. There is a hitch height adjustment. When you go to mount these legs to the crossmember, there's three rows of legs that you're mounted to. That will give you a four-inch hitch height adjustment, anywhere from about 13 inches to 17 inches. Hitch height is always measured from the truck bed up to the top of the hitch head. Depending where you bolt the legs, to which row of holes, it will give you a four-inch range so you can get your trailer as level as possible with your tow vehicle. The custom feet right here, these are designed to mount into your Chevy GMC truck's underbed hitch platform. I'll show you how they work. We'll rotate it again a little bit, so you can see the lever. This is on each corner, you'll do this. There's a pin and clip you pop out. Rotate that lever 90 degrees. That will rotate that tab, and you'll do that at each corner. Once they're both open, you can drop it right into the underbed prep package that's on your vehicle. Once it's dropped in, you just rotate it back 90 degrees. It will rotate those tabs to lock it into place, and then just put your pin and clip right back in. Again, you'll do that on each corner, so very simple installation. The hitch is a sturdy steel construction, has a nice durable carbide powder-coat finish on it. The specs on that, the application is for the Chevy GMC trucks with the factory-installed towing prep package starting in 2016. Gross towing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds. Vertical load limit is 6,250 pounds. The hitch height, again, we mentioned, is 13 to 17 inches. Just to show you how this handle and the hitch head work again, from the other side, pop off the pin and clip. Rotate the lever, and then just pull your handle right out. You can see it releases just like that. You see the jaws are open. Back here, it will show yellow. You're ready to couple. Let's show it by putting on your lube plate. Again, you want to make sure that lube plate is all the way on your kingpin so when you're going to hook up, it would slide right on just like that, and you'll see the handle goes all the way in. It's showing green, which means you're ready to tow. Flip your lever over, put your pin and clip in, and it's all locked into place. You're ready to go. That should do it for the review of the Curt Q25 Dual-Jaw Fifth-wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevrolet GMC Towing Prep package, with the 25,000-lb weight capacity.

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

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.

I really appreciate everything E-Trailer did to help me with this purchase. Their customer service is top notch! The delivery was super fast! I was able to install the CURT Q25 with my son in 18 minutes flat. It was very easy. It also fits like a glove on my new 2016 American manufactured Truck! Thanks again and you'll have my buisness for a long time. 285879

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

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. 710865

Product arrived in a timely manner and was very easy to install in my 2016 GMC Sierra 3500. The toughest part of the assembly is manhandling the heavy pieces to bolt it together. Having a helper would have made that easier, but it's certainly not impossible as a one person install. Once you figure the assembly out, it's a 15 minute job. I had to pull the hitch and raise it up after buying a RV trailer. It probably took me 10 minutes to pull it, raise it, and reinstall in my truck with no helpers. As they say, it's always faster the second time. Easy hookup to our new RV trailer and not a sound as we towed 350 miles thru hills across Arkansas and into Mississippi. 597779

product is great but like previous reviews that i read packaging could be very much improved . received 2 packages 1 had the head in it that was packaged very good , however the package with the leg mounts looked like it had gone thru a war zone . legs were scratched but not damaged , just put a little touch up paint on them . install was very easy , it went together with ease . fit in my 18 3500 Silverado with no issues . 482199

They shipped the item super fast. It was very easy to put together. Had to make a few adjustments to two of the locking pins that go in the bed. It installs and comes out of the truck bed very easy. It appears to have a good powder coating on it. Since I just received the item I have towed with it down the road. I just moved my camper around the yard. Its easy to hook up the camper and disconnect the camper. So far very happy with the fifth wheel. 470733

Installed in a 2018 Chevrolet 3500HD. Fit perfectly and was very easy to install. Won’t be able to use until 5th wheel trailer that’s on order comes in. The “puck” system is awesome for installation. Looks like an extremely well built unit. Only complaint would be that one box was ripped open and allowed on piece to get scraped up but a little spray paint cured that. 446456

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

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


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


Comments

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!

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
Curt 10" Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate
$8.36
. 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.

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

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


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

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


Very happy customer here. Ordered on a Monday and my Curt Q25 hitch was received wed with expedited shipping. I received emails detailing my shipment and a follow up email once received. Email also had attachments to youtube video showing installation of hitch for my truck. Really appreciate the extra customer service and will buy from etrailer again. The curt Q25 hitch was really easy to install on my Dodge Ram with the OEM 5th wheel package. All I had to do was bolt the legs to the hitch and the brace on the legs and place the legs into the "pucks" Took less than 1 hour. Would recommend a helper as the legs are heavy and hard for 1 person to hold and bolt together. 707750

  • Cover for Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • I suggest the 24 by 24 by 18 inch Classic Accessories Fifth Wheel Hitch Cover # CA80116. This will fit nicely on your Curt Q25 # C16069. I've attached a picture of the cover on a Q20 so you can get an idea as to how it looks.

  • What Is The Difference Between The Curt Q24 and Q25 5th Wheel Hitches?
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and he said the difference between the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs # C16069 and the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16545-16025 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.

  • Do Curt Q25 Grease Fittings Break Easily and How Does Demco Adapter DM6206 Install in 2018 Silverado
  • I combined both of your questions into one. There were some issues with the Curt Q Series hitches including # C16069. Those issues have been addressed though in the form of a new series of hitches; the "A" series. The A25 is # C16066. Damaged shipping cartons occur when the delivery service handles the packages. Heavy items can sometimes get tossed around and the boxes get damaged. The packaging is not damaged when it leaves our warehouse though. On the Demco adapter # DM6206 there...

  • Adding a Gooseneck Hitch or 5th Wheel Hitch to a 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Prep Package
  • Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP30845 was designed for aftermarket under bed 5th wheel installation kits but not the factory set up on your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500. But if the truck also has the center hole for a gooseneck ball you can use # C60692 to add a ball and safety chain loops. If you do not have the center gooseneck hole then I recommend using a 5th wheel trailer hitch that mounts directly to the factory prep package. If your truck is a long bed you can...

  • Will Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 Fit Factory Rail Kit on 2017 Silverado Short Bed
  • The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 referenced in your question will physically fit without issue into the factory pucks on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed. The reason we only list this particular hitch as a fit for the 8 foot beds is simply because it is a stationary hitch, and with short bed trucks, a sliding hitch is typically needed to provide the necessary cab clearance for making sharp turns. For a sliding fifth wheel hitch that will fit the factory...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitches that Will Work With Factory Rail Kit On 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • We have several fifth wheel hitches that are designed to fit in the factory rail kit on your 2017 Silverado 3500. Here is a list of the available hitches. B&W Companion 20,000-lb, part # BWRVK3700. Curt 24,000-lb, part # C16545-16025 or part # C16069. Curt 20,000-lb, part # C16530-16025 or part # C16064. Curt 16,000-lb part # C16520-16025. All of these hitches will work well with your truck. If you need a 7-way trailer wiring harness in the truck bed I recommend part # 41157.

  • How Heavy is the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch for GM Factory Puck System When Disassembled
  • The Curt Q25 fifth wheel trailer hitch that fits the GM factory puck system in your 207 GMC Sierra 3500 is part # C16069. It weighs about 200 pounds or so completely assembled. You can remove the legs from the head assembly to make it easier to lift. The legs, part # C16025, weigh about 45 pounds a piece or so and the head assembly, part # C16565, is a little over 100 pounds.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit directly in the 5th wheel prep package on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 short bed I recommend B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K Item # BWRVK3770. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. This hitch is the only slider that will fit directly, without the aid of an adapter, but if you want more capacity you can use the Curt adapter, # C16023, with the 24K slider hitch # C16546.

  • Under-Bed 5th Wheel Hitch Puck Placement on Ford and GM Trucks
  • Under-bed 5th wheel hitch puck placement is different between Ford and GM vehicles. Hitches that fit one do not fit the other. On a Ford truck the pucks are spaced 13-inches apart front-to-back and 30-inches apart side-to-side. On a GM truck the pucks are spaced 22-inches apart front-to-back and 27-inches side-to-side.

  • Which Curt Fifth Wheel Hitches Fit 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The GM factory fifth wheel rails kits are different sizes based on the length of the bed. So for a long bed the Curt Q25 part # C16069 that you referenced is the correct fit. If instead you have a short bed you'd need the slider equivalent part # C16546 and rail adapter part # C16023.

  • Comparing the Curt Q20 and Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for Differences
  • I measured the jaws and on both the Q25 # C16265 and the Q20 # C16130 the thickness of both is 1/2 inch. The differences are most obvious in the vertical load limit and the gross towing weight ratings. I reached out to my contact at Curt and the jaws are identical so the differences are in other metals being a slightly thicker gauge and the leg design. My contact said they are basically the same in the hitch head except for the slightly thicker gauge metal on the Q25 head.

  • Is the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 Compatible With Bed Mounted Rails
  • Since your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 has a 6-1/2 foot bed, you will want to use the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16546 instead. This hitch is a slider so it will help you with turning clearance and it works with industry standard rails, like part # C16411-204. Even though the 5th Wheel Hitch # C16546 says Q24 on it, it is essentially the same hitch as the Q25 that comes on the 5th Wheel Hitch # C16069. The 24 stands for 24,000 lbs and the 25 stands for 25,000 lbs. Even if you wanted...

We also carry the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16069, that is also designed to work with the puck system in your truck.

  • Recommended Pickup Truck for Towing Keystone Laredo 13,000-lb 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The ideal vehicle for towing a substantial 5th wheel trailer, such as a Keystone Laredo 380MB that is close to 13K dry, is a one-ton long-bed pickup such as a Ford F-350, Silverado 3500 or Sierra 3500. These trucks will have the power to avoid getting bogged down on hill climbs and will not be overly stressed by the trailer's significant weight. Also, long-bed trucks avoid the turning clearance issues that have to be addressed with either sliding type hitches or Sidewinder replacement...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Rail Kit Towing 21k Trailer
  • The B and W Companion Hitch part # BWRVK3700 is a fit for your 2017 GMC Sierra with the factory rail kit but your trailer weighs 21k and this hitch has a 20k capacity so I cannot recommend it for you. I can assure you that the Curt Q25 hitch part # C16069 is conservatively rated for 25,000 lbs so it would easily handle the weight of your trailer. It may not have the same look as the B and W but Curt does extensively test the capacities of their hitches so it will work well for you.

  • Can Breakaway Cable be Attached to Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Chevy Silverado 1-Ton
  • It sounds like you are talking about a breakaway cable. If the trailer was to come off the hitch it would pull that cable out of a switch that then applies the electric brakes using power from a battery on the trailer. Provided the cable can be attached to the tow vehicle in some way it does not necessarily have to pin into the same place as on your current hitch. I am sure you could still attach it to Curt hitch # C16069 but if you wanted to email me some pictures of how the cable...

  • The recommended lock to secure the Curt Q25 # C16069 is # AT89018. This is stainless steel and chrome lock with a 1/4 inch shackle diameter that you would use in place of one of the pins that secure the handles in place while the hitch is installed. Another possible option is to use a cable lock such as # e98891. Weave it through the hitch and a tie down point in the truck bed.
