Secure, Two-Piece Jaw

Q20 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).


Q20 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.

Extremely happy with the new hitch, very easy to assemble (4 bolts, local dealer wanted $300 to assemble), even easier to attach to my factory hitch mounts (Ford). Get someone to help you lift it into your truck. 480689

This is simply the best 5th wheel hitch I have ever used!

This is one of the finest hitches I have ever had. I love the ease of operation, the strength it has, and its light weight enough that I can remove it by myself if I want to take my hitch completely out of the bed of my truck. It is a breeze to connect and disconnect by myself, which is a major plus for this solo traveler. The other bonus is the small profile in the bed of the truck, and I still have room to load all my art gear for a show. I would highly recommend it to everyone! 584507

Best fifth wheel hitch I have ever purchased. I wish I could of had this type of hitch for my 2003 F-350. I use to have a Reese hitch that broke and left my fifth wheel laying on my bed rails it sure cost me a small fortune to get that fixed, I have hauled my new fifth wheel over 15,000 miles with out a problem what so ever. And some times I still have to look in the rear view mirror to make sure my trailer is still there. I recommend this product to anyone that pulls as much as I do, "Great Product". Sorry don't have any pictures............... 380920

I would suggest a note in the box telling you that this hitch has a couple mount options so as not to be confused by the bolt hole pattern.called info number and they explained it, very informative and professional ,top notch from start of order to finnish thanks 312998

The Curt Q20 5th wheel trailer hitch went together easily. Be sure to read all the instructions prior to installing the hitch in your truck. I was somewhat disappointed in that the base pieces had places where the powder coat had rubbed off. The two pieces were packaged without being protected from each other. Would have been 5 stars except for the shipping damage. I'm excited to hook up to and pull. 274015

After watching a YouTube video, assembly wasn't a problem. Hitch seems ok, haven't used it enough yet. The one problem I Have at this time is the Curt decal on the hitch head was installed crooked . It looks like a kid put it on. If I can't get another one I'll tear that one off and repaint if needed 634939

After the delivery truck driver just basically threw the hitch, sliders and adapter rails off the truck and dragged them through the door of our offices. (Even though we have a warehouse and a forklift). I got the forklift and a co-worker and we picked the destroyed boxes and parts up and put them up in the back of my truck. The entire hitch package weights around 280 lbs, be sure to have help to move and install it. etrailer and Curt replaced the stickers that were scraped off the hitch by the hard landing and after some re-painting of the black parts it looks alright and works great. We have around 7,200 miles towing with it so far and it's just starting to get broken in. Great product, very strong (but heavy) 628568

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


Shipping was little quirky the factory shipped it via freight and i had to go pick it up from the freight company about 30 minutes away. Once i got it home it was packaged well, installed was very strait forward, it is heavy though so make sure you have two people to lift it into the truck. Have yet to pull a trailer with it so we will see how that goes. Overall assembly height is when installed onto the ram oem rail system adapter is fairly high roughly 57" in the back of 2016 ram 2500. seems like a great product, time will tell. 339057

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


Pros: I've been using this hitch for about a year to tow my 5th wheel, and I've probably hooked up to it about 20 times. It's a really great hitch, easy to work, and I really like the color coded features (red, yellow, and green) that show when the hitch is connected or not and ready to tow. I haven't used the slider so I can't comment on that other than it appears to be easy enough to use. I LOVE the puck system to install it in the bed of the truck. As far as etrailer, they are great! They asked some questions to help me determine my needs, and then they provided a number of possible hitches. They were great about answering any questions I had. I've purchased several things from them in the past, and I HIGHLY recommend etrailer!!! Cons: There were a few places in the installation documentation that could have been easier to decipher. There were several videos online showing how the product works, but I couldn't find anything showing how to put it together. This would have been extremely helpful. Also, CURT claims this is a two man lift and can be easily removed from the truck. NOT TRUE! This thing is HEAVY, but it's supposed to be. Unless you have a piece of equipment to help lift it you should plan on leaving it installed. 482315


Comments

I apologize for the delayed response. I think Ive had the hitch for about two years now, and I use it to tow a fifth wheel RV quite a lot throughout the year with my Ford F-250. Its been a great hitch and is really easy to use. Probably the best part about it is that it uses the in-bed puck system. I have no regrets on this purchase.

Received product from ETrailer in a very timely manner. All went well with no hitch, play on words, that is what I purchased. Sandy was helpful beyond belief and answered all my questions. Some speak of the damaged boxes when these Curt Hitches arrive. Mine too were damaged but the product was unscathed. Shipping the 100 lbs products I didn't expect the boxes to last. ETrailer did a great job stuffing the shipping boxes all was well. I would recommend ETrailer just on how professional the employees are. I will being purchasing other items again. Thanks again Sandy! 328914

Thank-you etrailer for the fast free shipping! Ordered on Sunday evening and received hitch, mounting kit, and wiring package on Friday!!!! 5 boxes in delivery and all were received at the same time, great job. already tow 5th wheel with this hitch and it is great. Better than my old reese. Hook-up is easy and positve. Will say it does take all evening to install and measurements are extremly important to a good installation. Measured and checked square several times prior to any drilling and the mounting brackets are perfect. Thanks again for the fast, complete, and quality shipment. The only comment regarding shipment is that the hitch box had some damage when received and 5th wheel had a couple of same scratches, no big deal!!! The shipping box is not very durable based on product weight! 192850

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


The slide portion of this hitch works very well with very little effort from truck. I have hooked and unhooked several times at our permanent campground lot and have not had any problem with the jaws locking or releasing . We have not taken the 5th wheel camper down the road for any distance, so I cannot comment on hitch rattle or ride. The only issue I have had and it is negligible. It was hard for me to insert and remove the rail pins to remove the hitch from the truck because the rear pins are under the hitch frame.( and yes I mounted the rails perfectly square). If you're not going to remove the hitch often than its a non issue. The rubber dampeners just make the pins tight. I would recommend this hitch for sure just can't give it an excellent if we haven't taken it down the road for a distance. 383206


Comments

We have taken our Fifth wheel to Arizona and back and the hitch performed perfectly. I make sure to keep the hitch lubricated properly. It is definitely quieter and less jerky. I would give the hitch a 5 star as I have not had a problem with this hitch.

Just got back from a two-week road trip out west, the new trailer hitch performed without a snag! Easy docking and undocking, very nice to have a nice smooth ride. We are very impressed and thankful for an excellent product. The package in which the hitch arrived was in pretty rough shape, but all the pieces arrived. There is one place on the deck itself where it took some scuffing of the paint from whatever it was banged on during shipping. We are going to have to touch up that place to keep it from rusting in the elements. All in all, this was a great buy. Thanks 574834

Any good quality rust inhibiting spray paint like Rust-Oleum would work just fine.

The Curt Q20 with R20 slider hitch arrived just as promised in 3 days after placing the order. The Q20 head box was totally destroyed. The manufacture packaging was not made to ship individually using small package carrier such as UPS. Upon inspection I discovered that the bolts and washers were missing. I contacted Bill at E-trailer and told him. He explained that the replacements would have to come from the manufacturer and would take several days. I told him that I already scheduled an install and really needed those bolts and washers. He was able to round some up for me and shipped them out next day and they arrived on Monday just as promised. I also spoke with Bill about not being able to remove the head unit for the hitch. It needed to be removed to be able to install it on the slider. It seemed to be stuck and I could not budge it. I assumed that it may have been damaged in shipping, especially after receiving it in a demolished box. He explained to me that since it was new its tolerances were tight and I might try taking a pry bar to it. Well that did not make me feel real good. He was totally correct. Just a little more effort with a pry bar moved it just enough for the bushing to squeak loose and the head came right out. I am disappointed in the jaws on this unit. They look like they were forged by a 3rd grader. Not smooth and somewhat pitted. They are not machined jaws for sure. Had it all installed using the new Reese rail brackets for the 2017 F250. Everything went smooth. An added plus is the quiet ride when not connect to trailer. Can’t even notice the hitch is back there. My other hitch rattled and clanked all the time and was so annoying. I just hooked my 38ft 5th wheel for the first time. It was smoother and easier than any other hitch I have ever used. I bought the sider unit which is recommended by all for the short bed. However I cannot use the slider as the king pin box slides too close to the tall tail gate. The new 2017 F250 is taller and the bed is deeper so I needed a hitch that would go up to 19 ½ inches. I will update after a my first run with trailer later this month. Everyone at E-trailer was outstanding. 5 Star. I will keep using them in the future. 303415

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


I had a 16K Husky 5th wheel hitch for 12 years. It came with the RV purchase. We upgraded to a larger 5th wheel in 2015. I pulled it with the K16 but due to wear on the hitch I didn't feel comfortable. I searched the internet and came upon etrailer.com. I began researching different hitches. I settled on Curt due to it's reviews. I placed an order with etrailer and the next day I got an email with all of the shipping and tracking information. I had the hitch in 5 days. I was very disappointed when it was delivered. The shipping box was very light duty and had been reinforced with pieces of cardboard damaged. There was also a lot of heavy duty staples holding it together. I took photos upon delivery. After I opened the box I found the hitch was damaged. I immediately sent an email with photos of the box as received and the damage to the hitch. I called customer service and talked to Gina and Janice and went over the details. I was given instructions for returning the hitch and was emailed necessary papers to ship it back at no charge. I dropped it off at UPS the same day and received notification in 3 days that it was received. I was also advised a new hitch would be sent out and I received it in 3 days. At first I was very upset but after. That quickly changed after talking to the staff and receiving the new hitch within 5 days. These type things sometimes happen. I give the staff at etrailer.com an applause for their quick handling of this issue. I have since made another purchase. Give them a try. 275867

Because of personal medical issues, I had the hitch installed professionally. I pull a 38' fifth wheel behind a Duramax powered Chevy. The hitch has served it's purpose well and looking forward to using it for many more years!! I purchased the slider version, but have found that I would NOT have had to purchase a slider because of the design of the front of my fifth wheel, as seen in the pic's. I am able to do 90 degree turns without any problems (without moving the hitch rearward). 302964

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch That Fits in Pucks of 2017 Ford F-350 With 8-Foot Bed
  • There are a number of high-quality fifth-wheel hitches that will fit into the puck system of your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty. Reese makes two of those, called the Elite Series, which is available in towing capacities of 18,000 lbs # RP30142 and 26,500 lbs # RP30871. In between those weight ranges is the Demco Hijacker # DM8550033, which has a 21,000 lb capacity.

  • Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to Fit 2018 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package
  • Yes, we do carry versions of the Curt Q20 that are able to fit right into the factory puck system in your 2018 Ford F-350. The fixed hitch, part # C16530-16017, is for long bed trucks or the sliding hitch, part # C16530-16020, is for short bed trucks. The slider helps with turning clearance to keep the trailer from hitting the Ford's cab. This isn't always needed if the trailer is equipped with a rotating pin box like the Reese Revolution or Sidewinder. I've linked videos and the...

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for a 2011 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • There are several 5th wheel trailer hitches that will fit the factory pucks in a 2011 Ford F-250 long bed. One of the most popular is B&W Companion # BWRVK3300. This hitch is rated for 20,000 pounds gross trailer weight and is made in the USA. There is also a 25K version, # BWRVK3305.

  • How to Determine What 5th Wheel Hitch Height is Needed for 2015 F350 Dually
  • To figure out at which height you need the hitch, jack the trailer so it's level. Measure from the underside of the pin box (not the king pin) to the ground, which will be measurement number 1. Then, also on level ground measure how high above the ground the floor of your truck bed is, which is measurement number 2. Subtract measurement 2 from measurement 1, and you'll get the needed height above the truck bed floor. All three companies make an excellent product, any one of the three...

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2015 Ford F-350 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • I will start out by saying that the best trucks for towing 5th wheel trailers are 1-ton long beds. As far as capacity you might want to upgrade to a different trailer in the future so if you have a hitch with a high enough capacity now then you wouldn't have to worry about that later. You could split the different between 16k and 20k and go with an 18k, # RP30142. Or go with a higher capacity but less expensive 20k model such as # C16530-16017 or # BWRVK3300. All of these hitches are...

  • Which is Better for a Short Bed Truck, A Slider Hitch or a Fixed Hitch and Sidewinder
  • Hands down a stationary hitch with a Sidewinder is a better setup than using a slider hitch with a regular pin box. You will be a better ride quality without having to deal with the hassle of operating the slider hitch every time you get in a parking lot. Slider hitches have a lot more moving parts so they tend to "chuck" more than a stationary hitch, plus they are much heavier. Sidewinders will make the trailer track better behind your truck around corners as well as make backing...

  • 5th Wheel Trailers Hitch that Fits Directly in 2011 Ford F-450 Factory Prep Package
  • There isn't a way to adapt the Hi-Rise # 9480 to the Ford factory prep package on your 2011 Ford F-450. There are a couple of options for you. First, if you want to use an adapter you can use the Andersen Ranch Hitch, # AM3100. I have linked a video review of this adapter for you. The other option is if your F-450 has the 4 pucks and not just the gooseneck hitch. There are 5th wheel hitches that will fit directly into the factory pucks. Here is a list of ones that will fit directly without...

  • Which 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches Fit the Reese Underbed Elite System Besides Elite Hitches
  • For the Reese Elite Series underbed installation kit # RP30126 you can use the following hitches: Curt 16K hitch # C16515-16017 (slide bar jaw) Curt 16K hitch # C16520-16017 (double jaw) Curt 20K hitch # C16530-16017 Curt 24K hitch # C16545-16017 None of these hitches are sliders. If you have a short bed truck the best option is still the Reese Elite Series hitch # RP30144.

  • Can the 5th Wheel Hitch for a Ford Super Duty with Pucks be Used on a Chevy Heavy Duty with Pucks
  • The Ford OEM puck system is different than the Chevrolet/GMC OEM puck system therefore, you can't use a 5th wheel hitch from one in the other. The Ford OEM system has pucks which are much closer together than on the Chevrolet/GMC OEM system. The other issue you have is that the 5th wheel hitch for a long bed is likely fixed and the 5th wheel hitch you need for a short bed is likely sliding unless you have a rotating pin box. However, the head from the 5th wheel hitch for a Ford OEM...

  • Where Is The Curt Q20 Hitch Made And Where Is The Steel From?
  • The Curt 5th wheel hitches like # C16530-16017 are made overseas in Asia with steel from that region, but they are tested to meet US standards. Unless you are using a Sidewinder or have a Revolution pin box, I highly recommend you use a sliding 5th wheel hitch like # C16530-16020 or the Reese Elite Slider # RP30144 which is made in Mexico. Reese makes an adapter for the OEM Underbed Rails # RP30156, to allow the use of standard sliding hitches with the factory puck system, which greatly...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch without Wiring Harness that fits Factory Prep Package of 2016 Ford F-350
  • There are 5th wheel hitches that are a direct fit in the factory prep package for your 2016 Ford F-350 that do not come with a wiring harness. But the Reese Elite Series hitches all have it. For example you could use any of the following as a direct fit and they will not include the 7-Way connector that you do not need: # C16545-16017 # C16530-16017 # C16520-16017 # DM8550033

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Ford Factory Tow Prep Package on 2015 Ford F-250

The #9480 is not compatible with the underbed gooseneck hitch provided with the Ford Factory Tow Prep Package.

  • How to Install the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch in a 2017 Ford F-350 w/ Factory Prep Package
  • Since your 2017 Ford F-350 has the 8ft bed and factory prep package, installation of the Curt Q20 5th Wheel, # C16530-16017, can be done by the consumer. The Ford OEM compatible legs on the Q20 hitch uses four lever handles that allow the pucks to fit lock into your Ford's towing package. The levers a moved out away from the hitch and then you set the hitch in the puck holes in the of your truck's bed. Once installed, you push the levers toward the hitch to lock the hitch in position....

  • Height Adjustability of Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and 2013 Ford F-350 Long Bed
  • For a 5th wheel trailer you will want to have 5 or 6 inches from the tops of the bed sides to the bottom of the trailer overhang when the trailer and truck are level. The Curt Q20 for the Ford prep package, # C16530-16017, is height adjustable from 13 to 17 inches. But on most 5th wheel trailers you can also raise and lower the pin box for even more adjustments. No front to back adjustments are needed on a long bed truck like your 2013 Ford F-350. Height adjustments would be all you...

  • Best Truck and 5th Wheel Hitch for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Ram trucks are the most popular trucks for towing and what I would likely use if it were me. I recommend at least a 3/4 ton truck (such as a Ram 2500, Ford F-250, or Chevy/GMC 2500) with a long bed and a diesel motor. The 3/4 and 1-ton trucks will have the higher towing capacities and stronger suspension compared to the 1/2 tons. Diesel motors offer more torque across the RPM spectrum compared to the gasoline motors but a diesel motor is not a must-have feature. A long bed is recommended...

  • What is a Sidewinder and Why Won't the Curt Q-Series Hitches Work with Them
  • A Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin box is a very specific style of pin box replacement that allows short bed trucks to make tight turns without having to use a slider hitch. You would know if your trailer had one most likely. For more information on them check out the FAQ article I attached to the right. The jaws of the Q-Series Curt hitches are too wide for them to work with the Sidewinders.

  • With the Reese Elite Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30126 for your 2016 Ford F-450 you will be able to use a hitch from a different manufacturer that is designed to fit the Ford 5th Wheel Factory Prep Package. The Under-Bed Rail # RP30126 is designed to work with a Reese Elite Series hitches, such as the 18K # RP30142.

  • Can the Head of Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs # C16530-16017 Be Moved by Hand
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that what you are experiencing with your Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs # C16530-16017 is normal. This hitch is not designed to be able to be moved by hand. To help prevent movement and chucking (noise), this hitch was made with very tight clearances. Because of that it's not going to be able to be moved front to back by hand.

  • Will a Curt 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch fit Fifth Wheel Rails that a Reese 14k Hitch Fit
  • Your Reese 14k hitch is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails just like the Curt 20k fifth wheel hitch part # C16130 so yes, if you went with a Curt 20k hitch it would also fit the rails of your truck. As long as you don't go with the Curt 20k hitch like the part # C16530-16021 that is designed for Ram hitch prep packages or the # C16530-16017 that is designed to fit the Ford hitch prep packages you would be just fine.

  • Will Curt Fifth Wheel Hitches for Ford Hitch Prep Packages fit Reese Elite Rails
  • That is an interesting question but the answer is yes. Reese makes the Ford hitch prep packages and they are essentially a rebranded Elite rails system. Because of that the fifth wheel hitches designed to fit the Ford prep packages like the # C16530-16017 will fit Reese Elite rail kits like the part # RP30126. Or for a slider hitch you would need the part # C16530-16020.
