Secure, 2-Piece Jaw

3-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 - C16530-16025 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q20 5th wheel trailer hitch for the Chevrolet GMC towing prep package. This is a dual jaw design hitch. Has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the Chevrolet GMC trucks with the factory installed towing prep package starting in the year 2016. I have assembled this, so I've attached the hitch head to the legs.

These legs are designed to drop right into the openings of the OEM under bed hitch platform. The head itself uses a 2 jaw locking system, which will provide a nice 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact. Because of that, it'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models. This design of this hitch uses the unique spherical axial bearing. This allows easy pivoting of the hitch head, gives you a smooth 360 degree movement, not just front to back or side to side tilting. It does offer built in cushioning to help absorb any road shock.

It is a self aligning head, which will pivot for a nice simple hook up. The handle right over here is a short throw single handle operation. It'll let you easily secure the trailer to the hitch with this pin and clip that's included, or you can even take the pin and clip out, and the hole's large enough that you could put a padlock through there if you'd like for extra security. The padlock we do sell separately on our website, and they are listed on this product page as a related product. Also, the other nice feature is the hitch head has 3 lube points. They're indicated, one right here there's a zerk fitting and one on each side. Because of that it makes it very easy to access those grease fittings on the jaws to give you easy maintenance.

You can . This uses a 2 pin head removal, which makes it easy for one person to remove the hitch from the truck bed. If you're the only one around and you want to take this all out without trying to pick the whole thing up, there's 2 clips right back here. You just pop the clips off, pull these pins out, and that'll allow you to lift the head from the cross member. Then you can take the cross member and the legs out also. It does use a 3 point indicator system right here on the handle.

I'm going to turn this around so you can see. It's a color coding indicator system. Basically it'll tell you if the hitch is ready to couple, uncouple, or tow. Those colors are visible from the cab of the truck, so just by turning around and seeing which color is showing in here it'll tell you the position of the jaws of the hitch head. Let me just try to rotate this around here to show you what we're talking about. If you look on the handle . Did I rotate that enough Right here on the handle, if you look right on the circle here, you'll see green showing. The reason it's green, that means it's ready to tow. The jaws are closed. It'd be like if a kingpin was in here. It's all ready to tow, locked into position. If the yellow would slide over there and show, that means the jaws, if we opened this up, those jaws opened up, it's ready to couple. The yellow means it's ready to couple. Then way over here there's a red dot, that if the red's in there that means it's uncoupled. That means it hasn't connected correctly. Before you do anything you want to make sure that red is not showing there. You want to make sure it's either yellow or green. Green if you're going to tow. Basically just by looking at that, gives you a nice visible indicator from the truck cab. You can just turn around and see what color's showing, tell you the position of those jaws. Here's the pins I was mentioning that remove these clips, these 2 pins and you can take that head right out by yourself. Let's rotate it back around here. This hitch does come with the plastic lube plate, which we recommend to use when you're hooking up on a 5th wheel. Plastic lube plate would be this part right here. This will basically install on the kingpin. When you're hooking up it'll help when the kingpin slides into the hitch here, helps it glide a lot more smoothly into the hitch during your hookup. Once it's installed it gives you a nice protection between your pin box and you hitch head. Gives you some lubrication between the 2. When you do install the cross member to the legs there are 3 rows of holes in the cross member. You pick whichever row of holes you need to get you to the correct hitch height adjustment. Gives you a range of 4 inches. Your hitch height is always measured from your truck bed to the top of your hitch head. You want to make sure that's critical because when you hook up to your 5th wheel and your tow vehicle, you want to make sure it's all even as possible. It gives you a range of where to adjust it for your hitch height. The legs right here, they are custom feet. They're designed to mount in your Chevy, your GMC trucks under bed hitch platform. I'll show you how they operate. Let me just rotate it again a little bit just to show you. If you look at the legs themselves you'll see there's 2 handles here and 2 over there. Basically what you do is you pop the pin and clip off, rotate that handle a quarter of a turn, it'll rotate that tab. If you do it back here and then do it on each corner, that will allow you to lift if from the 5th wheel hitch platform in your truck. Also, with it in this position when it's handles are open, it'll allow you to drop it into place. Once it drops into the opening, rotate it, that tab rotates and locks it into place. Then for extra security you just drop the pin and clip in like that. That'll lock that handle in. You do that on all 4 corners. When you open these up, it'll rotate that. Drop it into there, close them, lock it into place. When you're going to remove it, take the pin and clip off, open it up, and you can lift it out. Very simple installation. This hitch is a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice durable carbide black powder coat finish over it. Again, the application on this is for Chevy GMC trucks with the factory installed towing prep package starting in 2016. The gross towing weight capacity on this is 20,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 5,000 pounds. We had mentioned the hitch height adjustment is anywhere from 13 inches to 17 inches. What I'm going to show you now is how the hitch head works. I'm going to grab an example of a . This is what your kingpin would look like that's attached to the pin box on your 5th wheel. Again, what you'll want to do is take your lube plate, go ahead and push that all the way down onto your kingpin. Of course, this will be installed on your pin box, so you just push it all the way. Then what you'll want to do is go ahead and pop this pin and clip, flip the lever open. Then again, you've got this short throw single handle, you just pull on it. When you pull it far enough you can see that the jaws pop open. Both jaws are open ready for it to hook up. You look back here, I mentioned the color coded indicator shows yellow, so that means it's ready to couple. Just like that as the kingpin moves in you'll see automatically, real easy, it slides in. The 2 jaws wrap around, the handle slides all the way in, locks into place. The green is showing which means you're ready to tow. All you have to do is flip your lever back over. Get the holes to line up just like that, put your pin and clip through, and hold your handle right into place. You're all ready to go. That should do it for the review on the Curt Q20 5th wheel trailer hitch for the Chevrolet GMC towing prep package. It's a dual jaw design and a 20,000 pound weight capacity.

Just want to give some kudos to the folks at etrailer. Descriptions and videos are on the money. Awesome shipping along with tracking , received my curt Q20 on time and installed per manufacturers instructions. The one issue I had with installation was torquing the 4 bolts. The 2 in front went easy, but the ones in back the torq wrench did not fit so had to take the hitch head off and pull hitch out of truck and turn over to torq the bolts. Little pain but not to bad. Etrailer keep up the good work. Scott 302418

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

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

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

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


This 5th-wheel hitch has worked flawlessly! When towing my 40' Keystone Montana RV, it's virtually like it's on rails at any speed. Recently, I made the mistake of turning too sharply trying to exit the parking area where it had been stored, and hit a supporting pole of a chain link fence 4" before clearing it. That tore off the rear cap of my RV, but the hitch didn't budge or bend one iota! That thing is as solid as a rock and utterly dependable! I don't believe I will ever have to have it repaired much less buy a new one. Thank you for a truly OUTSTANDING product! 699074

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

Just installed today, all parts are very heavy. I will need a crane to take it out. Had to go to hardware store because of some wrong parts in sealed bags. Handle was bent my guess was during shipping. Maybe a little to early for a complete review. Looking forward to hooking up the trailer and testing hitch. 670303

This 5th wheel hitch fits OEM hitch mount provisions perfectly on my 2017 Ram 3500. Connecting and disconnecting works well. This hitch is heavy for one person to manage, but a hoist set-up makes for easy installation and removal. Tows well with no play between trailer pin and truck. Great product. 625666

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
