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 - C16265 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q25 dual jaw fifth wheel trailer hitch, has 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 one has a nice two jaw locking system, which provides a nice 360 degree jaw to king pin contact. Gives you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models. Also, this offers a unique spherical axial bearing, which allows easy pivoting of the hitch head. It will give you a smooth 360 degree movement, not just front to back and side to side tilting.

It does offer built cushioning to help absorb any road shock. Does have three loop points, there's one right here for the bearing. There's one over here for the jaw and then one over here for the other jaw. They're very easy to access to put your grease fit on. Now this does also offer a four inch hitch height adjustment. Now hitch height is critical because when you hook up to your trailer, you want to be able to tow as level as possible.

When you go to mount this cross member to the legs, there's three rows of holes on this cross member. That'll allow you to put it in at your hitch height you need, then there's a four inch range from 13 inches to 17 inches. That's measured, the hitch height is from the truck bed to the top of this hitch head. Now the other main feature on this, it does use a three point indicator system, which is color coded. That'll tell you if the hitch is ready to uncouple, couple, or tow.

To show you that I'm going to have to rotate this. Let me just swing this around. Now that we got it swung around, I just want to point to that's where you're going to be looking. If you notice right there in that hole, it's showing green right now. When it's showing green, that means the jaws are locked closed, it's safe to tow. If I go to open it with the handle here, when I open the jaw, now you can look in there, and it'll show yellow.

Yellow means the jaws are ready to couple, it's safe to back your truck into trailer. Now if it does happen to show red, there is a red color. That'll mean the jaws are locked open, it's safe to pull the truck away, but you don't want to couple when it's in red. Now it does have this nice lockable handle right here, which is a short throw single handle operation. It does self reset to the ready to couple position after uncoupling. Now the other thing I wanted to show you while we got it turned around here, is these two pins and clips right here. If you pull these clips out, pull the pins out, that makes it very easy to remove the head right here. That two pin head removal is easy for one person to remove the hitch from the truck, makes it lighter by taking apart in pieces. Now I'm going to swing this back around. Now that we got it spun around. If you notice I have up front here, it does include this plastic lube plate. This'll go onto your king pin of your trailer, helps it glide smoothly into the hitch during hook up. It'll also keep your head from getting any damage to it. If you'll also notice, there's' the base rail mounting pins and clips, that will go in here to attach your legs to the rails. Now this is a simple installation. It does require base rails and an installation kit. Those are sold separately on our website. Now for this video I've just installed it on this display just to show you what it looks like when it's installed. But to install it, it does require the base rails and you can find those by going onto our website putting in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you the options for your application. This hitch is compatible and it will work with BMW, Curt, DEMCO, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed base rails. This is a nice sturdy steel construction, has a nice durable carbate powder coat finish to it. the specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity again that's 25,000 pounds. The vertical load limit is 6,250 pounds and I'd mention the hitch height you can adjust is from 13 inches to 17 inches. Now what I am going to demonstrate is how this hitch head will work. I'm just going to grab here, this is a replica of what a king pin would look like on your trailer. Basically, if you remember we open these up, it's showing yellow here. Yellow means the jaws are ready to couple. You can see dual jaws are open. When you back up to the trailer, let me show you first what you want to do, is take your lube plate I had mentioned and just put that onto your king pin. Just a very tight fit here. There we go and make sure it's pushed down all the way on your king pin. Once that's installed, then you'll go to hook up and you'll notice as it slides back into the dual jaws. You'll see it once it gets all the way back, you'll notice you'll hear the click. The jaws completely go around. The handle slides over, if you look. What's nice about this color indicator, you can see this from the cab. These are visible from the cab. If you turn around, see it green that means the jaws are locked around the king pin and your safe to tow. All you do is flip that up, put the pin and clip in there and that locks the handle from keeping it to open. But that should do it for the review on the Curt Q25 dual jaw fifth wheel trailer hitch, with the 25,000 pound weight capacity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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!

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

I am very happy with this 5th wheel hitch and etrailer Corporation. I originally had ordered a different hitch but was advised that there was a back order on that particular hitch so after contacting etrailer and speaking with Pat C we were able to work out a deal on the Q25 hitch. I have not gotten to tow with it yet but have installed it in my truck. This hitch is very heavy duty and you will probably need some assistance putting it together but with that said I am confident that this hitch will do the job I need it to do. I am very pleased with the customer service of etrailer and the quick delivery. I will definitely do business with them again. 452638

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

Product arrived the day after I ordered it. I now have it installed but have not used it yet. I feel it is a quality piece of equipment. Pretty heavy but needs to be for the load it will carry. A winch from the ceiling may be best if you want to remove often. None issue for me as I have a tractor with pallet forks. Great product so far. 608711

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.

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

Received the Curt Q25 fifth wheel hitch well packaged and after opening, reading instructions assembled product. It's extremely well built and completely exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to towing with this setup. 597570

I’ve used this hitch as a RV Transporter for a year now and it’s held up well and been a great hitch for the price! 591851

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


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

  • Difference Between Curt A25 and Q25 5th Wheel Hitches for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500
  • 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 primary difference between the two models is that the A25 # C16180 is essentially an upgraded version of the Q25. The head on the A25 hitch is constructed of stronger material and addresses/resolves...

  • Comparing the Curt A25 to the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch
  • 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...

  • Comparing the Curt Q25 to the Curt A25 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs # C16180 is the newer model of the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs # C16265. 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. It also has a 1 pin head removal compared to the 2 pin option of the Q25. They are both nice 5th wheel hitches, but the A25 has those couple of really nice features as an upgrade....

  • 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. This adapter will drop right into the factory pucks in the truck bed to provide industry standard base rails that the Curt Q25 will mount to. If you have the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch but would rather not use a separate adapter plate, another option is to replace its...

  • Comparing Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch to B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
  • For your 2017 Raptor 412TH, either hitch will work well with your trailer. The differences are if you want to also have a clean bed and if a gooseneck hitch is also desired. I recommend the Curt Q25 5th wheel hitch # C16265 if you desire the above bed 5th wheel rails. This hitch is a very nice and clean looking hitch with some cool components like the 3 point indicator system, a 2 pin head removal system, and 4 inch adjustability. It has a self-aligning head for easy hook-up and a...

  • Will Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch C16265 Fit Base Rails in 2014 Ford F-450 Super Duty
  • If you already have 5th wheel above-bed base rails installed in your 2014 Ford F-450 Super Duty then you can absolutely install the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265. This and other 5th wheel hitches use an industry-standard configuration (see photo please). Do note that the 22-inch front-to-back rail spacing is rounded up (from 21-11/16-inches) which is the industry-standard center-to-center slot spacing. If the base rails in your truck have a wider spacing for some reason then...

  • Factory Prep Package Puck Adapter to Universal 5th Wheel Rail Compatible Hitch for Ford, Ram & Chevy
  • The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch # C16265 will work with an adapter for the puck systems. You simply need to recognize that some adapters will limit the towing capacity. Curt is one of the hitches that uses legs compatible with the different pucks, so I will give you both options. For a Ram, you will use Reese adapter # RP30154 or Demco # DM6099. You can alternatively use the Curt legs # C16021 which will mount directly to your pucks. For a Chevy or GMC, you will use the Curt OEM 5th...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a 25,000 Lb 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2018 Ford F-350
  • I do have both gooseneck and 5th wheel hitch options for your 2018 Ford F-350 but you will need to choose between one or the other. As you mentioned, the B&W Companion part # BWRVK3500 for fixed or part # BWRVK3400 for sliding is only rated at 20,000 lbs. They do make adapters like part # 16310 but they also only have a 20,000 lb towing capacity. The correct B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for your F-350 will depend on if it is 2WD or 4WD. If your truck is 2WD then...

  • Recommendation For Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2006 Ford F-350 With Towing Package
  • The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, Item # C16069, is a fixed hitch for a Chevrolet/GMC with the towing package. The Curt Q25 hitch that is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Ford F-350 dually is Item # C16265. The Curt Q25 hitch, Item # C16265, for your 2006 Ford has a 2- jaw locking system and a lockable handle. The hitch height can be adjusted from 13 inches to 17 inches. It has a towing capacity of 25,000 lbs and a vertical load limit of 6,250 lbs. The custom installation kit for...

  • 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.

  • Will Curt Q Series 5th Wheel Hitches Work with a MORryde Pin Box
  • It looks like you're asking if the Curt Q series fifth wheel hitches are compatible with your MORryde pin box. Yes, hitches like the Curt Q25 # C16265 will work with a MORryde. This is the 25,000 pound hitch that fits into industry standard rails. If you can tell me the year, make, model, and bed length of your truck I can help you find the correct hitch and install kit that fits. Or if you have the factory prep package we may have a hitch that fits without an install kit.

  • Can Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Used with Reese Elite Under Bed Rail Kit
  • Fifth-wheel hitches that use above-bed, industry-standard base rails like the excellent Curt Q25 # C16265 that you referenced can be used with the Reese Elite Under-Bed Rails # RP30868 but only by way of the Reese Rail Adapter # RP30156. The adapter mounts to the Reese Elite Pucks to provide industry-standard rails that are compatible with most hitches, including the Curt Q25. An important thing to keep in mind though is that the adapter features a maximum weight capacity of 20,000...

  • Can a 20K 5th Wheel Hitch be Used to Tow a 20K Toy Hauler
  • Great question! Although a 5th wheel hitch rated for 20K can tow up to 20K we highly recommend using a 5th wheel hitch that is rated about 1K - 2K over the GVWR of your 5th wheel trailer. This gives you a safety margin and will help keep your hitch from prematurely wearing down from normal use. The only time you would be able to safely use the 20K hitch is if you didn't load your trailer up to the 20K capacity. If your toy hauler is 20K then I recommend going with either the B&W Companion...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2013 Ford F-350 Long Bed
  • We do have a Curt 5th wheel installation kit that will fit your 2013 Ford F-350 long bed but # C16448-104 is designed for older models and will not fit your truck. You will need Curt custom install kit # C16424-204 for carbide finish or # C16424-104 for glossy. Keep in mind that glossy doesn't stay glossy for long! I have linked a video showing an example installation of these kits. For a 5th wheel hitch you can't go wrong with the Curt Q25 # C16265. It's rated for 25,000 pounds gross...

  • How Much Does Curt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch for GM 5th Wheel Prep Package Weigh
  • Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 has a shipping weight of 205 pounds. This hitch is designed to fit directly in the factory 5th wheel prep package on 2016 to 2018 GMC/Chevy 2500 and 3500 trucks with 8 foot beds so no additional rails are needed for those trucks. If you have an 8 foot bed model but do not have the factory prep package then you would use hitch # C16265 which has a shipping weight of 154 pounds. And for the installation kit and rails use # C16411-204 which has...

All of the features and functions of both hitches will be the same but the Q25 hitch has a gross towing weight limit of 25,000 lbs and a vertical load limit of 6,250 lbs whereas the Q24 hitch has a gross towing weight limit of 24,000 lbs and a vertical load limit of 6,000 lbs.

This hitch features a cushioned 360-degree-pivoting head for easier hitching on uneven ground. This hitch will provide capacity equal to the truck itself to maximize your towing capability.

  • Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapter for 2010 Ram 3500
  • There is a way for you to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch but the Curt Q25 # C16265 you referenced is not compatible with the Draw-Tite gooseneck hitch in your 2010 Ram 3500. If that hitch is the Hide-A-Goose # 9464-57 you could use the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # 9480. This hitch has a capacity of 18,000 lbs along with a 9" king pin funnel width. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you to take a look at as well.
