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.


R20 Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' and 6-1/2' beds, this roller helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a roller to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


Non-Binding Design

The round-tube design of this slider allows for relatively uninhibited movement of your fifth-wheel hitch. Because your hitch can glide smoothly and easily along the rods, there is less chance of binding.


With straight, flat contact points, as found with square-tube sliders, tension can build between the slider and the hitch when your truck and trailer are somewhat out of line or are on uneven ground. As a result, it can be difficult to properly activate the slider when your truck and trailer are not in a straight line.


With a round-tube slider, there is more give between the contacting surfaces, allowing better mobility of the hitch system. Fewer corners means less tension buildup. Activating a round-tube slider is easier, and operation as a whole is smoother.

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

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

Have pulled my 38 foot toy hauler on 9 different trips now with absolutely no problems. Great fifth wheel. previously had a Reese and this on is a just as good if not better.

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.

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

This hitch has performed well. My 2 complaints are the handle sits a little high preventing a hard bed cover to slide over it. Secondly, it is very picky when trying to unhook. Almost need two people, one to try to release the handle (and trailer height) while the other moves the truck back and forth to get it to pop loose. I have read of other users with this issue. I haven't needed to use the slider due to getting a long bed after I purchased this. Not sure if I can remove the slider and have the hitch mount to the floor mount without additional parts. ??? I would consider buying again but would shop around for one that will accommodate the use of the bed cover. 610786

  • Recommendation on a 5th Wheel Hitch for a Truck With a 6-1/2 Bed
    The decision to use a standard or sliding 5th wheel hitch comes down to how comfortable you are in making certain turns with your rig. With short bed vehicles, the clearance between the cab of the truck and your 5th wheel trailer can be an issue if you are trying to make 90-degree plus turns. Most people find using the slider hitch reinsures them that they can make these turns without having any contact between the cab of your vehicle and the trailer. With this in mind, I researched...

  • Differences Between Curt A20 and Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitches
    The two largest differences are the limited warranty on the Q20 # C16536 is 10 years for the hitch and lifetime for the legs while the A20 # C16541 is a limited lifetime warranty. Also, the Q20 features the 360-degree movement with the spherical axial bearing to improve the pivoting of the hitch head. This feature however, is why the Q20 is not compatible with a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box which the A20 is.

  • Slider Handle on Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16536 is Difficult to Pull Out
    If the rails that Curt trailer hitch # C16536 is sitting in are not square that could be causing some issues but it probably would not have much affect on the slider handle. If the rails aren't square then the hitch would not easily slide. If it does slide just fine then squareness would not be the issue. We have one of these set up in our show room so I went to see how it functioned. Pulling the handle out does take a bit of force but nothing that should give you a hernia! The handle...
