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 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.

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


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 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

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


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

Lowest price around and free shipping. This hitch is the exact same one you can order from Mopar except it would say Ram on it. If you want to save money use etrailer.

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 was over kill for me, I always order things more heavy duty than advertised, because they always come as a lesser quality, but not this Time. It was much more heavy duty. My 5th wheel is 14,500 # so it's not Lightweight but this thing tows my 5th wheel like it's not even there, and it got here in less than 3 full days! I'm very impressed! 448870

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

  • 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...

  • Will Curt Q25 Hitch Fit Same Rails as RBW Lil Rocker
  • Yes, the Curt Q25 hitch part # C16265 that you referenced will easily fit the rails you have that a RBW Lil Rocker was installed in. Both this hitch and the RBW are designed for industry standard rail dimensions.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • Can Head and Center Section of Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitch Disassemble
  • The Curt Q25 fifth wheel hitch part # C16265 that you referenced can have the legs removed from the center section and the head removed from the center section.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended 25K 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 GMC Sierra 3500
  • Since your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 dually has the factory-installed 5th wheel rail kit (with 4 pucks in the bed) you can directly install a hitch made for that rail system, such as the 25K Curt hitch # C16069. 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. If instead you have industry-standard 5th wheel base rails installed, what we call ISRs, such...

  • 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...

  • Can Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch part # C16265 Fit 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
  • The Curt Q25 fifth wheel hitch part # C16265 that you referenced can be used easily in the bed of your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 long bed. What you need is a fifth wheel rail kit installed in the bed of your truck though. For that we have the part # C16420-204 which is a custom fit kit designed for your truck. A custom install rail kit like this will install in about half the time as a universal install rail kit and will minimize drilling.

  • 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...

  • Will Curt 25k Hitch Fit Rail Kit in 2015 Ram 3500
  • If you have a set of industry standard fifth wheel rails installed in the bed of your 2015 Ram 3500 the Curt 25k Q25 part # C16265 would fit and work well. The industry standard rails are the ones that sit 22 inches apart on center. If instead you had the Ram factory rail kit you'd want the part # C16049 which is a 25k Curt hitch that fits that rail kit as well.

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Hitch for 2005 and 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 w/ 6 Foot Bed
  • The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 referenced in your question is compatible with standard, above-bed base rails. If there are standard, above-bed base rails installed on both the 2005 and 2006 Dodge Ram 3500, then this hitch will technically fit either truck. However, since you mentioned that your truck has a shorter, 6 foot bed, it is instead recommended to use a sliding 5th-wheel hitch in order to provide proper clearance when making turns. I recommend looking at the Curt...

  • Could Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit 2003 Ford F-250 for Car Hauler Towing
  • As far as fifth wheel hitches go the Curt Q25 # C16265 does have a higher capacity at 25,000 lbs which would be a great option. But you'd have to consider the weight of the trailer you plan to tow plus the weight of the cars as well. This is just the hitch though. You will need to install a rail kit in the bed of your 2003 Ford F-250 as well so that the hitch has something to attach to. For that you would want the # C16443-204 which has been confirmed as a fit for your truck and would...

  • Adding a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to a Flatbed on a 1990 Ford F-350
  • I do have a solution for your flatbed 1990 Ford F-350 but the Curt hitch # C16265 won't work for a couple of reasons (flat bed height and lack of installation kits that work with flatbed trucks). What you can use is the Reese low-profile hitch # RP30054. It was made for flatbed trucks but will require a custom installation. Basically, one the hitch is assembled you will do the following: Using the 4 square holes in the base as template, mark, pilot drill and finish drill to 5/8” dia....

  • Lowering the Front of a 5th Wheel Trailer Towed by a 2017 Ram 3500 with Factory Puck System
  • You definitely want to tow your 5th wheel trailer level! Towing nose high can have a negative impact on tire and suspension wear and put too much weight on the axles. Even though you can make a relatively tight turn now without sliding your hitch back a slider is still what I recommend. Even if you can't get it down the full 4 inches even just a couple of inches lower would be beneficial. For this reason I recommend the Pro Series slider # PS30121. The lowest setting can't be used so...

  • Which Set of Mounting Holes on Curt Q25 Hitch Is for Each Height Setting.
  • There are three sets of mounting holes on the head part # C16565 for the Q25 hitch. The hole near the top of the head of the hitch will give you the lowest setting, the middle set gives you the middle height and the lowest set gives you the tallest.
