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.

Excellent hitch. Great price when ordered from etrailer and free shipping. It appears to me that when looking on the Ram website for a hitch that the Ram hitch is made by Curt and is the Q24. 722286

I installed this into the 5th wheel prep package that comes on a 2016 Ram 3500. Although I installed the prep package myself, the CURT system dropped right in. It took me about 90 min to assemble and install the hitch system in my truck with very little adjustment. The directions were easy to follow and felt it all went very smooth. When O was finished I hooked up my RV w/o any problems. I am very pleased with this set up and would definitely install it again. The only drawback it the weight but it's to be expected w/ a 25k lb system 244447

Installed this hitch in a 2018 RAM 3500 dually and really like the way that the pucks hook up in the bed. Much quieter than the older hook up with a rail in the bed. The Curt hitches have color coded the lever to indicate open or closed when you back into the hitch. This is seen from the driver's seat and you don't have to get out to check. Solid hook up to the trailer and I really like this hitch. Easy to hook up and unhook. 732926

Easier to connect and disdisconnect the 5th wheel than the prevoius hitch that i had. The red, yellow, and green indicators on the arm make it simple for one person to connect. Of the three hitches i have used over the years this is heads above the others. The Cadillac of 5th wheel hitches. 590431

I use it to pull a ~16k lb. camper. This has performed well for a good price. The only gripe I have is it's a wee bit finicky to make this hitch lock on to the king pin at times (might require jarring the head sometimes to finish locking in). It helps to lube up the fittings of course. Cheers, 577701

We have used this 5th wheel to pull our 41 foot camper for over a year now. Not only is it easy to put in and take out of our dodge, but it is sturdy enough to handle the job thrown at it. Our family highly recommends the Curt hitch when in the market for a 5th wheel hitch. 565035

The hitch seems to work fine for my truck/trailer. It's a heavyweight to be sure but I'll make a simple overhead hoist to lift it up while I drive under it. Piece of cake. I wanted to throw a word out there regarding shipping time. I ordered the hitch on Tuesday afternoon. It showed up at my door on Thursday afternoon. How can you possibly beat that??? I'd give etrailer.com five stars just for that!!! I'll be looking for a gooseneck hitch in the next month. Guess where I'm shopping for it? 435347

Ask the Experts about this Curt Fifth Wheel

  • Recommended Trailer-to-Truck Clearance Dimensions for 5th Wheel Hitch
    The recommended clearance dimensions for 5th wheel towing are indicated on the diagram that I linked for you. Between the bottom of the trailer overhang and the top of the truck bed rails we suggest having no less than 5-inches of clearance to allow for trailer pitch and yaw when you're making a turn while also descending a hilly road. You can measure your truck's bed-to-rail height to determine the correct height setting (and a compatible choice of hitch) for your specific application....

  • 24k Fifth Wheel Hitch that Fits Directly to 2017 Ram 3500 Factory Rail Kit
    We have one 24k fifth wheel hitch that fits the factory rail kit you have installed in the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500, but there isn't a way to adapt a Signature Series fifth wheel hitch fit the wider spaced out pucks of the Ram rail kits. Instead we have the Curt 24k fifth wheel hitch part # C16545-16021 which will attach directly to the truck's rail kit and will work well.

  • Is a Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Necessary for Towing 5th Wheel - 2015 Ram 2500 w/ OEM Tow Prep Package
    For a truck with a 6-1/2 foot bed, there are two ways to gain extra clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the back of the truck cab. You could use a sliding fifth wheel hitch, like the Curt Q24 # C16546 sliding hitch along with the # C16022 adapter. This solution would provide 12 inches of additional clearance, which could be enough for a 90 degree turn if your fifth wheel is no more than 88 inches wide, which is pretty narrow. The better option that would provide a greater...

  • Removing the Head and Legs from Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch C16545-16021
    The legs on Curt 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16545-16021 are bolted onto the center section of the hitch with 2 bolts per leg. While 1 person could remove and reinstall legs on the hitch having an extra set of hands is recommended because of the weight of the hitch components. The head is held to the center section with pins to the left and right and below the hitch head. Remove the pins and clips and then the caps the pins go through. This will allow you to pull the head off of the center...

  • Comparing Curt and B&W 5th Wheel Hitches for 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
    5th wheel hitch jaws vary in thickness. On the Curt hitch # C16545-16021 the jaws are 5/8-inch thick. On others, thickness can be greater, such as 1-inch or even 1-1/8-inch as with some Reese and B&W hitches like the # BWRVK3600. Hitch height range is a matter of design choice. All standard 5th wheels offer a height range of a few inches and this will vary by brand. Certain tow vehicles might benefit from a shorter or taller hitch depending on several factors including the particular...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 2500 Long Bed with Factory Prep Package
    We do have hitches that will fit directly into the factory prep package in your 2016 Ram 2500 long bed. I recommend the Curt Q24, # C16545-16021. The base of this hitch fits directly into the 4 pucks in the truck bed so no adapter is needed. This hitch is rated for 24,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 6,000 pounds pin weight. It has a secure double-jaw design for solid jaw-to-king-pin contact. And the head is cushioned for a smoother ride. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.

    5th wheel hitches to fit your 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 8-Foot Bed with factory rail kit can be seen on the linked page. For a 24K-rated hitch you can indeed use Curt # C16545-16021 that you referenced. The linked video will give you additional information on this hitch, whose features include a 2-jaw system for better king pin contact, 360-degree head movement for easier hitching and 4-inches of height adjustment. For a wiring harness you can use Curt # C56000.

    The Curt Q24 for Ram Towing Package part # C16545-16021 that you referenced can be removed from the bed of the truck it is installed in pretty easily and since this hitch would attach to the factory rail kit the bed would be empty basically so that you could use the truck for other things.

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 w/ Factory Rail Kit
    If your 2017 Ram 3500 has the factory rail kit and an 8 foot bed, I recommend looking at the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16545-16021. This hitch is designed specifically for the factory rail kit on the Ram and will mount directly to the 4 receiver pucks built into the underbed rails. It features a nice 2-jaw locking system and a 4 inch height adjustment. The hitch will provide a gross towing weight capacity of 24,000 pounds.

  • How to Adjust Height on Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Factory Prep Package
    To adjust the height of the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16545-16021 you will just remove the legs (if they're already installed) and choose a different set of mounting holes on the head unit to re-attach them. I have attached an image from the instructions manual that details this step. The Curt Q24 has a height adjustment range of 14 to 18 inches. I have included a short video review that you can take a look at as well.

    On the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch # C16545-16021 safety chain attachment points are not included because unlike a gooseneck hitch, 5th wheels do not require safety chains. You will see that on gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1314 from B&W safety chain attachment u-bolts are included. Please see the linked photo I have prepared for you.

    There are several 5th wheel hitches that will fit the factory RAM towing prep package hole pattern. I'll list out the options we offer below along with a few recommendations. The article you found was likely an old article. RAM sort of botched the release of their OEM 5th wheel package back in 2012/2013 and they started selling trucks with the factory mounting kit before a hitch was actually designed and released.

    In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed.

The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for the Ram Towing Prep Package, # BWRVK3600, is design to fit right into your Ram's factory pucks located in the truck's bed. The B&W hitch has a gross towing rate of 25,000 lbs and an adjustable hitch height between 17 to 19 inches. What I like about the B&W hitch is the design of the hitch jaws.
