Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, 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

A20 Color 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).

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - C16140 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt A20 dual-jaw fifth wheel trailer hitch with a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It uses the interlocking two-jaw system right here, which provides a nice 360-degree jaw-to-kingpin contact, and because of that it'll give you less rattle, more security than your slide bar models. Also, on the front of each jaw, over here and over here, you can notice there's two built-in grease zerk fittings, which will give you easy lubrication of the jaws. This hitch does use a fully articulating torsion head for controlled coupling and a nice stable, quiet ride. It will self-align for easy hookup, and helps suppress road shock to reduce any bothersome towing noise. The handle right here is a lockable handle.

It's a very short-throw single-handle operation. The nice thing about it, also, it does self-reset to the ready-to-couple position after uncoupling. Now, when you put this together, when you mount the crossmember to the legs, there's three rows of holes on the crossmember, so it actually will give you a four inch hitch height adjustment. The hitch height would be measured from your truck bed to the top of the hitch head, and you want that to be as close as possible, so when you're towing your fifth wheel with your tow vehicle, you want those level. It gives you three choices, anywhere from thirteen inches of hitch height adjustment up to seventeen inches. One of the nice features on this is the three-point indicator system. It'll tell you what position the jaws are in.

What's nice about it is that it's color-coded. Let me just swing this around so you can be able to see. If you notice, right under the hitch head, right here, you'll notice right now it's showing solid green. That means the jaws are completely closed. If we had a kingpin in there, the green would mean you're ready to tow.

This color coding will tell you if the hitch is ready to uncouple, couple, or tow. What's nice about those colors and looking, if you're in the cab, the cab would be right here, you can turn around as you're hooking up or uncoupling and watch the color, and when it changes, it tells you the position of the jaws. Basically, the green, like it is now, the jaws are locked closed; it's safe to tow. If it goes to yellow, let me just unhook this and pull out the handle. You can see right now, because I opened the jaws, it's showing yellow. Yellow means the jaws are ready to couple.

It's safe to back in the truck to couple up to your fifth wheel. It if would show red there, that means the jaws are locked open, and it's safe to pull your truck away. When it's red, you do not want to couple. Also, this has a nice fast one-pin head removal, makes it very easy for one person to remove the hitch. Back here, there's a clip you can pull out, and then you can pull this large pin out, and that'll allow you to take the head out of the crossmember so you can take it apart in pieces, which makes it easy for one person to remove the hitch. Also included with this . Let me roll this around here. There we go. Included with this, I have laid out, comes with the plastic loop plate right here. This plastic loop plate will go onto your kingpin and lets the kingpin glide smoothly into the hitch during hookup. Also comes with, you can see, the pins and clips for attaching the legs to your base rails. This is a simple installation with base rails and an installation kit. Now, the base rails and the installation kit we do sell separately on our website. I would recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you the correct base rails and installation kit for your application. This fifth wheel hitch is compatible with B and W, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed base rails. This is a sturdy steel construction with a durable carbide powder-coat finish. Again, the specs on this. The gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 5,000 pounds. We had mentioned the hitch height adjustment from thirteen inches to seventeen inches. What I'm going to do now is, we already have the jaws open, ready to couple, showing yellow, so what I want to do is here's an example. This is what a kingpin would look like on your fifth wheel. When you go to hook up, your kingpin would slide in between the two jaws, just like this, and once you get it far enough, your jaws will completely wrap around the kingpin. You notice the handle automatically slides up. The holes line up, so you just take your pin and clip, drop your pin into the hole, clip it, and that'll lock the handle. Now, the hole is large enough, you could actually put a padlock on there if you wanted extra security. It does come with this attached pin and clip. With the handle locked, you look back here at the color, it's showing green. That means you're all ready to tow. Again, to uncouple, you just pull your pin out, open it back out, and go, be able to back right out. That should do it for the review on the Curt A20 dual-jaw fifth wheel trailer hitch with the 20,000 pound weight capacity.

The quality of the product is what I expected, Excellent. I encountered the same problems with the packing as several others have. The exterior of my box was perfect, completely in tack. The problems were with the way the product was packed inside the box. The Styrofoam was destroyed along with the 1/8 inch thick piece of paneling, which allowed the right side leg of the hitch to bounce around and end up scratching the center member of the hitch, no bigger a little touch up paint couldn't fix. But, really people a 1/8 inch piece of paneling trying to contain a 140 pound hitch, lets start with a 1/4 inch piece of plywood and go up from there. Thank you. 633958

Mixed reviews. I think I picked out a great hitch (Curt A29, part # C16140. Haven't installed it yet. Turns out the mounting system for my 2006 Chevrolet 2500HD 8' long bed isn't the right one (holes don't match up to the frame, only the one in the back for the lower bolt hole). Part number 16418. Emailed information to sales & this was the part recommended for my truck... Still can't install the part... Will have to drill holes both front holes (large & small...)... Doesn't math the video of the 2005 Chevrolet 2500 HD... Appreciate the videos, better than the written instructions included. Once done, hope to give it a 5 star. Will see what is recommended... 454980

Very nice product.....had some initial installation parts issues that etrailer quickly resolved....I've got 18K pounds on this hitch and all is well, including a few steep grade up and downs.....trailer rides nicely in hitch with virtually no chucking....hitch height just fits under the bed cover and I can remove the hitch from the rails in two pieces by myself.... really satisfied....I'd recommend this product 719298

The hitch is great . The only problem was shipping. When the order arrived the outer box was extremely beat-up. Upon opening, the inner box was so damaged it was not reconizable...the styrofoam was in pieces and the hitch paint was scratched-up. It was treated VERY badly in shipment...I took pictures and was going to forward to you but my phone crashed and that's when I learned my cloud back-up did not include my photos. I needed the hitch immediately for a trip, so I just installed it and chalked-it up as bad luck. With all that said, I owned Reese before but the Curt just seems more substantial 544700

Great hitch for the price. Easy to assemble in under 30 minutes. Only complaint is box came a little beat up and it was missing the safety pin that holds the main pin in place, quick trip to the hardware store and $2.10 later problem fixed. 489162

The Curt A20 steel construction looks real good. Simple to assemble and install on my standard rails . We plan to use it to tow our 5th wheel travel trailer to our winter destinations and back. We had a competitors hitch for the last five years and it was replaced under warranty once and several parts more often. major looseness was the issue. Not willing to put up with it anymore I did some surfing and bought a Curt A20. 460150

Hitch slid into existing rails after a very minor adjustment. Took my son and I about 25 minutes to assemble, torgue bolts and adjust rails in the bed of my truck. we have used it twice already and camper did not bang and pop like it did on old worn out receiver. The ordering process was also very smooth. Kelsey took the time to explain the differences in the hitches before I made my decision! I Would recommend both etrailer and this hitch if you are looking to change out! 434026

I like the hitch so far, though I haven't used it yet. Easy assembly, only the 2 side plate need installed. Appears to be well made. The only problem I've encountered so far is I can't remove the upper hitch plate. I pulled the large pin that holds it to the lower assembly. I wiggle it back and forth and side to side. I feel resistance of the rubber isolator but it doesn't budge. I don't want to pry on it. Perhaps after a few uses it'll loosen. I wanted to remove it to lighten the hitch, to ease the installation. Now I have to struggle with the entire weight of the hitch. 433312

Received the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch very timely from UPS. It looks very well built. We (my husband and myself) put it together and had it installed in about a half hour (Very easy with the right tools). We are going camping this weekend. I will take a couple pictures and will let you know how it does..... 404676

I'm happy with the performance of the hitch. The color indicator is added piece of mind that I'm doing things right. It did come with a few minor scratches from shipping and a few scratches most likely came from the factory. Like most 5th wheels they're heavy, so you won't want to carry it far without a dolly. I'm sure the poor UPS guy got a work out. The 7 blade in the box, above bed rails, and hitch were in in 3.5 hrs, but I have a hoist, which helps but not needed to get things installed. I can't express how helpful the installation videos were. 387120

Hitch arrived on time. there are 3 small spots where the paint has been scratched. No big job to repair. I am very satisfied with the hitch. Seems to function properly. Cant wait to tow with it. I like the way the jaws are round as apposed to the slide jaws that I replaced. Easy to assemble. The folks at e-trailer were very helpful and professional. 319640

Everything went as described. Don't believe they could have made an easier install. Will be hooking to 5th wheel for first time Saturday. Little heavy but was able to handle it. So easy to go together one man can do it without an extra hand helping. Work smart not hard! 694946

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


Now this is what I'm talking about. This hitch is great! Very tough, rugged, dependable for all your 5th wheel towing needs. Easy smooth operation to switch from maneuverable position for those tight and sometimes hard to get into spots. Switching to towing mode is a breeze. This hitch limits that bucking and chugging effect as you tow down the highway. Easy to install and in my case I got the over kill with this 18,000 pound towing capacity. I only have a 13,000 pound RV; however I wanted that peace of mind knowing that I have enough strength and security behind me in the bed of my truck. Thanks etrailer for offering great products. 686855

Works but there is slop in the hitch do to the wedge not fitting correctly. They need to be more model specific rather than generic fits. 610443

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


The Hitch is great once you figure out the correct steps to put it all together. You should have information in the directions that has a link to a video that shows you step by step process to assemble the hitch. The directions are veg ( not dummy prof ) on step by step assembly. After we assembling the hitch it would not fit into the pucks in the truck correctly. So I went online and looked up a video on Curt A20 5th wheel hitch installation and viewed my obvious mistake. There are to many options in your directions, make a video. 652112

Very nice hitch, easy assembly. Haven’t had any problems hooking up, head has play so you don’t need to be perfect backing into hitch. Bought a ram 17 Cummins and this hitch to go with it at same time between the hitch and truck can’t tell the 12000 lbs camper is back there. Very little hitch noise. Easy and fast shipping also. The only complaint is the hitch is heavy! Make sure you have help to remove or install. 614499

Very heavy duty hitch. Initially had some concerns so ordered the 20,000 lbs. instead of the 16000. Very good service from the etrailer representatives. Had some concerns on how long the delivery was going to take, however they were able to get it to me in a very short time. Thank you to the individuals who helped with my order. Danny 340534

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


I had a reese slide bar hitch that was worn out. I decided to do with the A20 over the B&W mainly because of the cost. After enough research I found out my old rails wouldn't work because they didn't have the extra slots for the wider base. Etrailer had the complete universal kit that worked great. Was easy to unbolt old rails and replace with the new ones. I was able to reuse my original brackets mounted to frame which I liked better than the universal ones. Took maybe an hour to put everything together. I like the smoothness of the latch opening and closing the jaws Hitch looks well built and I guess the 140lb it weighs says so. Etrailer shipped quickly. 481260

The R20 Roller and the A20 Slider were both pretty easy to install. Except for the weight (Those Things Are HEAVY) It was a straight forward install. What I like is the Quality of the Curt Products. They are a very high Quality product in my opinion. I plan on the wife and I and our Two Main Coons are planning a cross country trip. So I am very excited to get out on the open Road and see where life takes us. What WAS a bear to install was the Rail Kit. It required lots of trips out from under 402224

This hitch was extremely easy to install! Although the locking handle maneuvered slightly different than the Curt videos I saw online, the intuitive design made it a breeze to set up. As a first time 5th-wheeler, this product has exceeded my expectations so far. I have not towed yet with this unit, but I feel confident that this product will be able to tow my 16k lb 5th wheel. 452620

I recently purchased a fifth wheel hitch for my new truck but wasn't sure I ordered the correct one after hitting the "enter" key! I called etrailer the following morning and found out I had, in fact, ordered the wrong hitch. The young man I spoke with was incredibly helpful - he canceled my initial order, explained what I really needed and why and then placed the order. I went on line the next day and found that the order had somehow been cancelled. I then spoke with LEAH G. She is the bomb. She corrected everything and did her best to expedite shipping including personally making certain that MY shipment was on the last truck of the day. What more can I say. Etrailer.com and Leah G are unbelievably awesome from beginning to end! Thank you for a great experience Conrad 371744

The product arrived 1 day earlier than promised. The instructions were decent, they could of been more inclusive of the different setups, the hitch and sliders didn’t reference how to interface with the Ram puck base. The rubber gaskets for the slider base didn’t fit with the Ram base due to their thickness. You need a 100lbs torque wrench(I rented one from Orielys). All the parts were present. The bad may not of been etrailers fault, but the boxes arrived like they were dropped out of an airplane. Amazingly, nothing was damaged. 712034

Purchased this Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs Item # C16044 to go in 2019 RAM 3500 DRW and tow 16,750# 40’ fifth wheel with 3,145# hitch weight. Newbie to 5th wheels and I haven’t taken delivery of the trailer yet so I set it in the highest position. Judging by how high it’s sitting I may have to let it down to the next setting. Easy assembly by myself although it is heavy. Seems well made. No adjustments needed to get it to sit in place. Came in 2 boxes and one was torn but nothing missing. Happy with it so far. 694006

Ordered the Curt A20 with Ram OEM puck legs on Friday. etrailer stated shipping would be 3-5 days. The hitch arrived in perfect condition on Monday...simply amazing! The hitch was manageable by myself to install. It comes in 4 pieces: (2) legs, (1) cross member to connect the legs together, and then the hitch head itself. I assembled the legs first and easily lifted them into the bed. I took the hitch pin out of the bracket and installed the bracket with 4 bolts. I then inserted the hitched head back in and replaced the pin. Simple install and the hitch is nice and solid...and does not rattle due to the rubber dampening. 686546

The over all installation was easy. The only pit fall was nowhere does any one talk about if you have a spray in bed liner. If the liner gets on the OEM pucks it has to be scrapped off for the arms to install correctly. It also helps to spray some WD40 on the rubber bushing to remove the head to make it easier. Once it was installed and height set it worked great. My only suggestions would be better packaging and a little more detail on leg placement. Other wise great hitch so far worked great for the first tow so far.. 673627

I installed this Hitch on my 2015 F350 6.7l one year ago and absolutely love it.. I have been faithful to the Reese Pro series for ever, so this was a very tough decision to go with Curt and all I can say is that I definitely made the right decision. The hitch fits perfectly under my Pace Edward Jack Rabbit tonneau cover because the release handle lays flat. This enables me to just pull the cover closed after I drop the camper thus keeping the hitch out of sight and my bed dry/extra storage. Now on to function: The slide mechanism works flawlessly and that with a pin weight of 2800lbs. (The Reese always made me fight with the release level) The pin has Zero chuckle Release handle is fantastic, I have been at some odd angles and have never had an issue releasing the pin. What else can I say except I would buy this hitch again in a heart beat. 642137

Love the hitch. fits my 2018 super duty f350- perfect. It is a bit heavy so I use a engine lift to get it into the back of my truck, which work great. I could lift it but I am old and don't want to hurt myself. I have purchased several Items from etrailer and all have been top quality and at a very fair price. 641590

Very nice hitch. Works great with the factory 5th wheel hitch setup in my GMC 2500. Easy in and out when I need to remove it. System works perfect with my Montana 5th wheel. 634630

They deliver a solid product in a timely fashion I called customer service before, total professionalism. Although it was my mistake when I call them, because I had the parts that I called about. Excellent choice for parts. 633716

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


Hitch is very nice, although it is much heavier than I anticipated. Had to assemble in place in the truck as I do not think two people could possibly lift it into the truck. The safety cross pins that slide onto the pins that hold the rail system to the GM puck adapter plate are difficult to insert as the slide rail base is very wide. I ordered this over the phone and Shawn at etrailer.com provided fantastic customer service. Thank you Shawn! 628742

Review from a similar Curt A20 in Fifth Wheel


Very happy with etrailer and the purchase of Curt 20K fifth wheel hitch for my new Ram 3500 that fit perfectly in the factory fifth wheel prep package. etrailer customers service was helpful with questions about the shipment while in transit. The hitch came in two cartons and the assembly was straight forward with easy to follow instructions. The Curt hitch is a high quality well engendered device with well thought out features that should perform greatly for many years to come. 610298

  • Can the Reese Goose Box be Used on a Short Bed 2016 Ram 2500
  • The correct Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter for a Lippert 1621 pin box is part # RP94716 for 16,000 lbs or part # RP94720 for 20,000 lbs. With that being said, it is not recommend to use the Reese Goose Box on a short bed truck due to limited turning clearance. They do make an offset gooseneck ball adapter for the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 9467 on your 2016 Ram 2500, the 5" Offset Ball part # 19308 but this still is more than likely...

  • Comparing the Curt Q20 and the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitches.
  • As far as height adjustability and weight capacities the Curt Q20 # C16130 and the Curt A20 # C16140 are identical. They both have a Gross Towing Weight of 20,000 lbs, a Vertical Load Limit of 5,000 lbs, and a height range of 13-17 inches. When it comes to choosing which one is better, even though they are both excellent choices, I recommend going with the A20 because it has more features. Right off the bat the A20 has interlocking jaws to secure your king pin as opposed to the Q20 jaw...

  • Recommended Custom Wedge for Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch and Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
  • The correct custom wedge for your Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140 is the Sidewinder Wedge # C16992. While we have not had the chance to physically test the Sidewinder wedges with the Lippert Turning Point pin boxes, their designs are extremely similar so this should work without issue. We have also had customers come back to report that other model Sidewinder wedges fit perfectly with their Lippert Turning Point (see attached image). This custom wedge will give you a much...

  • Can Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch be Used with Reese Sidewinder Pin Box
  • There is a wedge now that does work with the Curt A20 hitch part # C16140 for that you would want the part # C16992. The hitch was redesigned by Curt and they tested it to determine that it now does work just fine with the Sidewinder pin boxes. The head of the system would not wear out prematurely.

  • Loose Connection Between Curt A20 Hitch and Curt Base Rails
  • Since you mentioned the cotter pins which are used to secure the feet inside the rails, that makes me that you are referring to the connection point between the rail and foot on one of the four corners of the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16140. If that is the case then you will want to inspect the hole on the foot, the hole inside the rail, and the pin that connects these together. If these holes have become misshapen then this could very well cause the loose connection that...

  • Will Curt Q20 Work With Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
  • There is a great option for a Curt 5th wheel hitch you can use with your Lippert Turning Point pin box, but the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch # C16130 is not compatible. The reason is the head of the Q20 has what is called a "spherical axial bearing" which is really a fancy way of saying it pivots 360 degrees. This means it is not stable enough to work with a rotating pin box such as the Turning Point or a Sidewinder. A very similar hitch that will work with your Turning Point pin box is...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed and Turning Point Pin Box
  • Like a Sidewinder, the Turning Point Pin Box has a rotating turret so the pivot point is no longer at the king pin in the hitch, it is 22 inches rearward; because of this it is strongly recommended that you use a fixed fifth wheel hitch. Using the slider would mean the trailer's weight would be pushed too far behind the axle of your truck as opposed to being over the axle or just forward of it, which can put added stress on the truck, hitch, and trailer. For a hitch I highly recommend...

  • Base Rails and Installation Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • You can easily mount a fifth wheel hitch in your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty and to do that I strongly recommend the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16428-204 because they do not require any drilling into your truck's frame to install and include galvanic isolators that are going to prevent corrosion in your Ford's aluminum bed. Not having to drill into your truck's frame is not only good for your truck but also reduces the amount of time it takes to install the rails....

  • Recommended Curt Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 GMC 2500 HD Denali
  • For your 2017 GMC 2500 Denali, I recommend the Curt EZr Double Lock Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # C611-624 is a confirmed fit as is the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch w/ Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # C607-604. The only major difference between these two is the tongue weight rating of the Double Lock is 7500 lbs compared to the 6,000 lbs of The EZr Double Lock. The other difference is in the safety chain loop locations...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 5.5 Bed for Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • A Reese Revolution is the equivalent of the Reese Sidewinder. The Revolution is the factory installed option and the Sidewinder is the very similar aftermarket option. For a 5-1/2 foot bed, a sliding hitch will not work, so the Revolution or Sidewinder route is the only option to provide you with turning clearance. The really good news is that is by far the ideal option even if you had a longer bed truck. For your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install...

  • Can I Use Mopar M20 With A Sidewinder Pin Box
  • The Mopar M20 hitch is the same as hitch as the Curt Q20 part # C16130 which features a spherical axial bearing to improve the pivoting of the hitch head. The 360-degree pivot is why its not compatible with a pivoting pin box such a sidewinder or revolution. It is not possible to lock out the head so there would be two pivot points in the towing setup which would not work. If you have industry standard base rails in the truck, you can use the Curt A20 fifth wheel hitch part # C16140...

  • Solution for Front Axle of 2018 Ram 2500 Transferring Weight to Rear Axle
  • Since you have a Sidewinder pin box on your 5th wheel trailer you can definitely swap out the Curt R20 Round Tube Slider # C16550 for the Base Legs # C16906 which gives you the stationary Curt A20 # C16140 for your 2018 Ram 2500. If you don't already have the custom wedge for the A20 we have that as part # C16992 that you can use. This should help put the front end of your Ram lower since the legs are almost 100 lbs lighter than the slider but I can't guarantee that your pickup will...

  • How to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2017 Ram 3500 with Ram Box
  • Yes, you can tow a 5th wheel trailer with your 2017 Ram 3500 that has the Ram Box feature. But there is a specific method that has to be followed or it will not work. Basically the issue on Ram Box models is that the bed a narrower than a standard bed so that when you make a turn while towing a 5th wheel trailer the trailer pin box can make contact with the sides of the bed. To solve this problem you will need to have a Sidewinder pin box installed on the trailer and use a specific fixed...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Brackets and Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty Dually
  • There are custom fifth wheel installation kits that fit your 2004 Ford F-350 dually but the Installation Kit # C16448-104 you referenced does NOT fit; this kit is only for 2005-2011 Ford Super Duty trucks. Instead I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ford F250 and F350 # C16443-204, which does fit your F-350, because the custom fit will lessen the amount of drilling and time it takes to install the brackets compared to universal installation kits.

For a 2012 Ram 2500 truck you would need the Curt Custom, No-Drill Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram # C16420 with Base Rails # C16204, which can be had as a kit with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram # C16420-204.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 without Factory Pucks
  • Since your fifth-wheel trailer is equipped with the Lippert Turning Point pin box you can go with a fixed hitch. The extended pivot point on the Turning Point eliminates the need for a sliding hitch that would otherwise be needed on short bed trucks like yours to provide cab clearance during sharp turns. For a hitch that will work great on your Ram and is compatible with the Turning Point I recommend the Curt A20 # C16140. This is an excellent hitch that features a fully articulating...

  • How Much Weight Are the 5th Wheel Base Rails for a 2019 Ford F-250 Rated For
  • The Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit part # C16428-204 which is a fit for your 2019 Ford F-250 do not have a weight capacity as that will come from the 5th wheel hitch itself. For example, if you were using the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16140 then you would be limited to 20,000 lb but if you were using the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16180 you would only be limited to 25,000 lbs assuming the truck is rated for this much weight. The above will hold true...

  • Grease Fitting Locations for Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The zerk fittings for the Curt A20 hitch part # C16140 are located on the front of each jaw.The jaws must be in the closed and locked position for the zerks to be accessible. They are kind of hard to see but I attached a picture that points them out. Curt recommends high pressure grease like the part # L11465. If you need a grease gun we have part # L30200.

  • Weight of Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16140
  • The Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140 referenced in your question weighs in at right around 137 pounds. Keep in mind though that one of the benefits of this particular hitch is its fast 1-pin head removal that makes it much easier to remove the hitch from your truck with just one person. This allows you to remove the hitch in a couple of pieces instead of the whole unit. The head by itself weighs about 100 pounds and the legs weigh 37 pounds total. I have attached a short...

  • Is There a Sidewinder Wedge that Fits Curt Q Series Fifth Wheel Hitches
  • The Q Series of Curt fifth wheel hitches can't be used with Sidewinders as the jaws and heads end up getting damaged. This is partially why Curt redesigned them and made them the A Series. Which the wedge for an A Series is the part # C16992. For a 16k A16 hitch we have the part # C16120 or for an A20 we have the # C16140.

  • Trouble with Locking Handle Engaging on the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch

For starters, I would take some brake parts cleaner and spay down the jaws and the locking handle to ride any debris. Once you have let the jaws and handle mechanism dry then you can take some LubriMatic White Lithium Grease part # L11363 and spray it onto these components while moving them back and forth to...

  • 5th Wheel Towing Capacity for 2011 Ford F-350 and Recommended Hitch and Rails

I was able to find the towing specs sheet for the 2011 Ford F-350 and its 5th wheel towing capacity can range from as low as 12,300 pounds (6.2L Engine, 3.73 Axle Ratio, Regular Cab, SRW, 4X4) to as high as 22,700 pounds (6.7L Turbo Diesel, 3.73 axle ratio, Regular Cab, DRW, 4X2) and numerous...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Hitch that is Easily Removed on 2014 Ram 1500
  • Choosing the right 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch for your 2014 Ram 1500 will depend first on the weight of the trailer you plan on towing. You will want to make sure the truck and hitch have weight capacities that exceed the trailer's loaded weight. Since your Ram 1500 has a short 5-1/2 foot bed, the safest way to tow a trailer is to use a stationary 5th-wheel hitch and replace the pin box on the trailer with a Sidewinder, if it does not have one already. The Sidewinder will be required to...

The single latch jaw surrounds the king pin well and it also has a slide bar for added security. The hitch isn't cushioned like the Curt hitch you have though.

  • Which is Better Curt Q20 or A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt A20 fifth wheel hitch part # C16140 is similar to the Q20 but has an upgraded head design so it's the better choice. Especially if the Montana you plan to tow has a Reese Revolution or Sidewinder pin box since the A20 is compatible with them and the Q20 is not. Also the A20 has a limited lifetime warranty and the Q20 has a 10 year warranty for the head.

  • Are There Replacement Legs for Curt A20 Hitch Compatible with 2016 Ram Factory Pucks?

If you don't yet have the hitch then you will want the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16044. Curt doesn't have a handle replacement for that hitch so that length is all they offer. You could easily fabricate an extension for that handle since it bolts into place.

  • Is Vertical Play in the Reese Select Plus 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Head Normal
  • I do have an option for you but I don't think there is anything wrong with the Reese Select Plus 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30081.

However, when there is weight on the hitch then it won't have near as much movement. Unfortunately, there is no way to adjust the vertical play as again that is just how the hitch is designed.
