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

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 - C16180 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt A25 Dual Jaw Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. This uses high strength, inter-locking and a two jaw system right here, provides a 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact. The jaws will fully wrap around the kingpin to fully minimize any noise. Gives you less rattle, more security than any of the slide bar models. The head on this is a fully articulating head instead of just front to back and side to side like most fifth wheels.

This will actually fully articulate, gives you control couplings and a nice, stable, quiet ride. It will self-align for easy hookup. Also, suppresses any rood shock and reduces the bothersome towing noise. Now, it does have two built in grease zirc fittings. One on each jaw right here in the front, you can see. That gives you easy lubrication of the jaws.

You can just attach your grease gun to that and pump grease into there. Now, this will insure secure towing. It uses a three point color coded lock indicator system. What I'm going to do is swing this around to show you that. It's one if its main features on this hitch. If we swing it around, once we get it all the way around, we should be able to see.

Here's the color coded system. This will give you . What it basically does right now you can see it showing a green circle. What that's telling you is the jaws are fully locked closed, you're ready to tow. If you go to open this, let me just go ahead and pull the pin and clip and then I'm going to pull the handle, and we're opened the dual jaws.

You can see it switched to a yellow triangle. That means the jaws are open, you're ready to couple. It will also show a red octagon, which will mean the jaws are locked open, it's uncoupled. So you do not want to tow. It will self-reset. What's nice about this color coded system, these lock indicators are visible from the cab. The handles, as I showed you, it's just a simple single throw handle operation, helps open the dual jaws, has a pin and clip right here that you can drop in there to keep the handle in the closed position. It will self-reset to the ready to couple position after you couple your trailer. The hole is large enough that when you do close it, you could put a padlock through there if you want. We do sell those separately for added security. Also, you notice this big handle here, if you pull the clip off on this side, you can pull this one pin out, makes head removal really easy. It allows one person to basically take this apart and take it off the tow vehicle. I am going to swing this around. Now it does come with everything shown here on the table. Comes with a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install and how it operates. Comes with the four pins and clips. When these do drop into the rails on your tow vehicle, you can put these pins and clips in there to hold it into place. It comes with this plastic lube place. The lube plate is nice because you put that on your kingpin and it'll help that kingpin glide smoothly into the hitch during hook up and it'll prevent any messy grease buildup. Also on the side, we bolted these legs to the center cross-member. There is a range. There's about four rows of holes here. It will give you a four inch hitch height adjustment, any where from 13 inches to 17 inches. In hitch height is always measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head. The reason it gives you a range is because all vehicles are different. You do want to keep your fifth wheel as level as possible when it's being towed with your tow vehicle. It is a very simple installation. It installs on the base rails. Now the base rales and the installation kit . We do sell that separately on our website. What you might want to do is go to the website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle. It will show you what base rails and installation kit are available. This is compatible. It will work with B&W, Curt, Demko, Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley Above that base rails. This hitch is a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice durable carbide powder coat finish to it. A few specks on this. Again, the gross towing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity, 6,250 pounds. I'd mentioned the range of the hitch height adjustment is 13 inches to 17 inches. Basically, I pull the handle back, you can see the jaws are open. It's showing yellow back here so it's ready to couple. I want to give you an idea here's what a kingpin would look like on your fifth wheel. Basically when your kingpin slides in between the jaws, you can see once it gets far enough, the jaws completely close around it. The handle goes and locks into position here. All you have to do is take your pin, drop it through the holes, clip it right into position, and the handle won't move, and you're all locked in and ready to go. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the Curt A25 Dual Jaw Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the 25,000 pound weight capacity.

Had a Pullrite Superglide in my old F350 standard bed but when I upgraded to the 8ft bed of the dually, I went with this hitch. Hitch came in 2 boxes and although the boxes worked banged up a bit, everything was there and fine. It only took about 30 minutes to bolt everything together and install on the rails that were already in the truck. I actually had to take the hitch apart once to adjust the hitch up a little. I wanted it as high as possible in the bed, while still clearing the Roll N Lock retractable bed cover. Looks good, seems solid and well made. Hitch head comes off to make it easier to remove this hitch, but even with the head connected, I am able to move the hitch in the truck (would need to take head off for me to lift the hitch out of the truck). Also installed a BedRug at the same time to clean up the bed. 579604

Arrived in great shape, easy to install. Can't wait to give it a try. Looks well built and easy to use. The release handle is just in a different position than my old 20K Reese so will be a little more of a reach to get to the lock pin. 495638

I have always had pretty good luck w Curt products! Product was was as described easy to install. Def heavy duty. Other posts were same, meaning boxes sustained heavy damage, but product inside was in great shape. Few scratches but no gonna change my review. Etrailer did price match so saved me some cash. Haven't pulled with it yet, just moved 40 ft camper around. May update later. 635841

I received the hitch in 2 boxes, 1 was damaged but the contents were ok. Delivery was on time. Assembly and installation went relatively well, took about an hour. I have not had a chance to tow with it yet. Will update at that point. Unit seems to be solid and well constructed. 585320

This 5th wheel hitch is AWESOME!!! It was as easy as the video to assemble and install. I put it together in the living room watching to Olympics. It is easy to install in the factory RAM puck system. You should use a buddy, it is a little heavy. It took about 30 to 40 minutes to put together and another 15 minutes to install and torque all the bolts to specs. 479288

First tow with a heavy trailer went great. Easy to hook it up east to un-hook. No problems so far. Still 5 stars!

Looks great. Perfect fit. Easy assembly. The hitch is heavy. But that is to be expected for a 25 k hitch. 440398

A well made solid hitch. Easy to install and remove. I use it on a regular basis to pull a 42’ toy hauler with a 2016 crew cab F-350.

Review from a similar Curt A25 in Fifth Wheel


After talking on the phone about the Q25 or A25, I decided to get the A24. Its the new model for the Curt hitch and can’t be happier with it so far. Shipment was fast. Boxes were damaged but can’t really blam it since the two boxes are very heavy. Hitch only had a few scratches on it. Was very easy to put together. I have not towed with it yet since it is still winter here in Maryland. The hitch is build very good. Can already tell it will be way better than my old hitch. I won’t put that company’s name on this review. I highly recomemd ordering from etrailer. 475218

Review from a similar Curt A25 in Fifth Wheel


Please note this review is for receiving and installing the A25 hitch. I will update this review when I have a few trips under my belt on how it performs. First, as others have mentioned, the box that housed the legs was in poor shape and was heavily taped to keep in intact. It even had a hole in one end but the legs were in excellent shape, except for a little scrape paint on the edge of one of the legs. Not a big deal and a little black paint will keep the rust away. The other carton contained the hitch head and support beam. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you it had 48 staples. 38 in the top and 5 more on the two long sides. When I removed the staples on the two long flaps each of the inside flaps had 6 staples each. Talk about over kill! A good pair of lineman's pliers is a must for removing 48 staples. Once I was able to open the hitch box, the contents were in excellent condition with no scrapes or blemishes to the painted parts. A word of warning: This hitch is heavy! I've read somewhere this hitch, fully assembled weighs around 170 pounds so beware. Putting it together is simple. Four bolts and two screws for the handle and it's done. The manual explains installation for legs used with rails. My setup was for the GM puck system. The only difference I could see you don't use the lock nuts and there are no guide pins on the support beam. The 14mm bolt heads will take a 13/16 socket/wrench and if you use the lock nuts they take a 22mm wrench/socket. I don't understand why a U. S. made product mixes Metric and English fittings. Summary: This is a heavy product, well built, with easy to understand instructions. Simple installation and adjustments. The only negative (for me anyway) is once you open the jaws, you can't close them with the handle. The only way I see is to push the jaws in as would happen when hitching. Since they are spring loaded they will snap close with authority when engaged. I'm going to use an one inch wooded dowel to close the jaws as I prefer them being closed when not in use. 502000

Love the hitch it's rated for high strength but isn't overly big and bulky and doesn't take up a ton of room in the truck...it fits into the bed pucks easy and locks down nice and tight with no flex or loosness in the pucks or gaps to create possible vibrations or noise when towing... Thanks Derek for hooking me after being back ordered but getting it to me ahead of schedule after letting you no I had a prescheduled trip within 2 weeks and you had to me with a week...headed out next week looking forward to see how the new truck and hitch set up works... Thank you for all you help... 441469

This is everything I need and more for hauling my 3 car trailer. It is well made and it comes with good instructions. It takes about 45 minutes to assemble from the time you open the box. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is not a way to lock it in a ram with the pre prep package to prevent theft. 500803

Etrailer made it very easy, from finding the right hitch, ordering, and shipping !!!! And they had the best price around at the time i ordered, which really helps when your just starting up a business !!!!! I just recieved the 5th wheel an hour ago and George from etrailer has already made contact with me, to do a follow up !!!! Nice that a company has a good customer service after the sale. I hope that if there is any issue of any kind that they continue to take care of the customer. 490087

Review from a similar Curt A25 in Fifth Wheel


I haven't used the hitch yet, but while installing it I noticed: 1) the 4 bolts which connect the hitch head to its legs, or base boxes, are a smaller diameter than the 8 bolts that hold the pin box onto my 40' 5th wheel trailer, and 2) when mounting the legs into the 5th wheel prep package on my 2019 F350, I found that a snug adjustment is not possible, because of one or both of these design choices: a) coarse thread bolts are used here (vs. fine thread), and/or b) there is only one hole through each of the 4 base mounting bolts for the cotter pin to go through, so the castle nuts can only be made tighter or looser by turning the nut 1/6th of a revolution. This means that when you lock the hitch down by rotating the handles 90 degrees, that the locked-in position either feels too loose or too tight because 1/6th of a revolution of the nut is too much. If these bolts had a 2nd hole in them (or were fine thread) that would allow a 1/12th of a nut rotation adjustment. Smaller nut height adjustment would also mean a much greater potential of being able to adjust the locking levers to a firm pressure setting. 638805

We use this hitch to pull a 16k camper, or our 20k car hauler. I really like the symbols on the front of the hitch - so I can tell if I'm locked, before I get out of the truck. I have not had any issues with this hitch, it's been great! Had it around 1 year now. 612300

This is a very good hitch. I have had it for one year now and it is very easy to unhook when you are not level or on uneven ground. My old hitch I would have to fight to unhook when the trailer and truck were not on level ground. This one is Great ! Hookup is also quick and easy. I leave it in all the time but with the puck system was simple to install. 596576

  • The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16180 and the Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 are both fantastic hitches and extremely similar to each other. Both will provide a 25,000 pound towing weight capacity, an interlocking 2-Jaw system for a secure connection, and a 4 inch height adjustment.

  • The Curt Q25 # C16265 had some issues with the jaws that the company corrected, so you shouldn't have any issues. The A25 # C16180 came on the market with stronger materials and a different jaw design that interlocked and came with a lifetime limited warranty versus the 10 year limited warranty of the Q25. The Q25 has an axial bearing that allows head movement 360 degrees, so it is able to function differently. This is a limiting factor in that a Revolution or Sidewinder pin box is...

The A25 has an interlocking dual jaw for increased security. The A25 also has built in grease zerk fittings to make maintenance just a little easier.

  • 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.

Most 5th wheel hitch manufacturers have good/better/best choices so if someone were to use a good option from Curt but a better option from Reese (or vice versa) that would influence their opinion. For example, when you input your 2012 Ram 3500 into our fitguide the first couple of options that pop up are from Curt...

  • 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. If you are...

  • 5th Wheel and Conventional Towing Weight Capacities for 2018 Ram 3500
  • The 2018 Ram 3500 with Cummins Diesel is dependent on the axle ratio, the cab, and the box length. I've attached the chart to assist with each of these. The number in the parenthesis for each of them is the 5th wheel towing capacity and the other number is for the trailer hitch receiver below the bumper. If you are looking for a trailer hitch receiver, I have linked the page to your options to assist. Assuming you are looking for 5th wheel components, if you have the factory tow...

  • Curt A25 5th Wheel Hitch Recommend for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 Trailer w MoRyde Orbital Pin Box
  • The Curt A Series of fifth wheel hitches will work with the style of pin box that you will have, but the Q Series will not. One of the reasons for the release of the A Series was so that they had a hitch compatible with the Sidewinder styles of pin boxes. Aside from that you are in an interesting situation as the GM factory fifth wheel rail kits are different from between the short and long bed trucks. Why that's important for you is that since you are using a pivoting pin box you don't...

  • Comparing Goose Box to 5th Wheel Pin Box and Hitch Regarding Articulation and Capacity
  • The Reese Goose Box # RP94720 has an integrated air back and shock system that will help on rough terrain. It works very much the same as some pin boxes like the Trailair Flex Air- 21,000 lbs # RP94720 . The issue you will find is that your trailer weight given is greater than the pin boxes we carry. The Goose Box is only rated for 20K and our pin boxes max at 21K. For the capacity you are seeking, I recommend the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch- 25,000 lbs # C16180 which has a...

  • Comparing the Curt A25 and Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The main difference between the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16180 and the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16265 is the hitch head. The head on the A25 is far superior to the head on the Q25 because it has an interlocking jaw system that grips the kingpin tightly so very minimal movement is allowed, it offers a one pin head removal system, and it can be used with a rotating pin box if needed. The overall feel of the head is just much smoother on the A-Series when compared...

  • American Made Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • We carry hitches that were made in America, though the Reese # RP30033 is not. I recommend checking out the Curt A25 # C16180, which is made in the USA, has a 25,000 lb capacity, offers full 360 degree king pin contact, and has an articulating head to make hooking up your trailer an easier process. It fits in standard above-bed base rails also features a handy 3-color indicator system which easily lets you know when you're ready to hook up, tow, or uncouple.

  • Will Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Same Rails as a Reese 20K in a 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • Since your 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500 already has above the bed rails used for your 20K Reese hitch then you will not need any other parts to mount the Curt Q24 hitch # C16245. It will fit in the same industry standard above the bed rails as the Reese hitch. Given that the gross weight rating of the trailer is 24K I recommend going with the Curt A25 # C16180. Having a hitch that is rated for more than the gross trailer weight is ideal. Even if you don't plan on loading the trailer to...

  • How to Reduce Severe Chucking and Jarring Issues with a 2013 Keystone Montana 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are correct, the Lippert Tri-Glide has since been replaced with the Lippert Trailair Flex Air in favor of a more streamline design with less moving parts. In regards to comparing the Trailair to the MORryde, the Trailair uses an airbag with shock absorber and the MORryde uses a rubber spring. The Trailair will provide a smoother ride and have more adjustments but the MORryde will be a bit more durable. They are both great options for you but it really just depends on preference. With...

  • How is the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch C16180 Different from the Q25
  • According to Curt the A25 hitch # C16180 is a rebranded Q25 with a head that is made of stronger material. The A25 is the newer version. The changes made to the head address some issues with head failure associated with the Q25. The Q25 was a beefier version of the Q24.

  • 2017 Ram 2500 Compatibility with 35 Foot Long Toyhauler
  • For your 2017 Ram 2500, I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ram Truck # C16427-204 along with the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16180 which is a confirmed fit. This combination is rated for up to 25,000 lbs which will be more than your vehicle and trailer ratings. To give you your specific towing capacity, I will need more information to assist. I need all the model info as Loredo can be many of the trim packages, the cab size, the bed length, the engine...

  • Will Curt 25k Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit Same Rails as Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Yes, a Curt Q25 fifth wheel hitch # C16265 will fit directly into the same fifth wheel rails your Reese 16k hitch fit. Both of these hitches were designed to fit the same industry standard fifth wheel rails as what you have. You may also be interested in the Curt A25 part # C16180 instead. This is the upgraded version of the Q25 which has a nicer jaw design that provides a more solid connection to the king pin. The first picture I attached shows the A25 jaws which overlap and the second...

  • Sidewinder Wedge Recommendation for Curt A25 5th Wheel Hitch

  • Yes, the Curt fifth wheel trailer hitch bracket kit # C16424-204 will fit in your 2015 Ford F-350 that has a DEF tank. The kit will mount industry standard rails in your truck's bed for a hitch like the Curt A25 # C16180. If you'd also like to install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck's bed you can use # 20110. I've linked some videos on each product for you as well.

  • Can Curt 5th Wheel Base Rails Be Installed on 2017 Ram 2500 with Existing Gooseneck Hitch
  • Yes, in order to install a Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit (or any other 5th wheel bracket kit) on your 2017 Ram 2500 your existing gooseneck hitch would need to be removed as both systems require the same mounting space on the frame rails. The correct Curt Rail Kit for your Ram is actually the part # C16427-204. The kit you were looking at is designed for earlier model years of the Ram 2500. The Curt Installation Kit will provide your truck with industry-standard, above-bed base...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350 Long Bed without Prep Package
  • For your 2018 Ford F-350 with the long bed I recommend the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16180. This is an excellent hitch that features an interlocking 2-jaw system and a fully articulating head that both contribute to a really smooth ride when towing your trailer. The head in particular is what sets this hitch apart from a lot of alternatives as it will do a great job of actually suppressing road shock and reducing a lot of that standard towing noise. Its self-aligning design will...

  • Is Curt Q20 FIfth Wheel Hitch Compatible With Sidewinder on 2017 Ram 2500
  • There are actually no wedges for a Curt Q-Series of 5th wheel hitch because these hitches are not compatible with a Reese Sidewinder such as the parts # RP61422 or # RP61420 you mentioned. The reason for that is the head of the Q-Series has a spherical axle bearing, which basically just means the hitch head pivots too much to be compatible with a Sidewinder. A Sidewinder is a fantastic upgrade in order to ensure turning clearance and the Sidewinders that have an air spring such as the...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch and Towing Capacity for 2016 Ram 2500 Long Bed
  • I took a look at the online towing specs for your 2016 Ram 2500 4X2 Crew Cab with the long bed and 6.7L Diesel engine and it listed a maximum trailer weight of 16,300 to 17,370 pounds depending on the exact transmission setup (M6 MT-G56 or A6 68RFE). If this is correct then the truck is up to the task of pulling the Heartland Big Horn 3500. Also keep in mind that the 16,000 pound GVWR you mentioned is the most it can possibly weigh when fully loaded, so it's unlikely it will actually get...
