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.


R24 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.

Hats of to E-trailer! I was in a hurry - they checked inventory for me, said they had the hitch coming in the next day and they would try to ship same day out to me, had it in 3 days. Ordered on Thursday, had it Monday and we installed and hooked up Tuesday. However, the hitch system; my installation was for a short bed 2013 Power Wagon 2500 Ram and required me to enlist multiple other professionals to install, we worked on it for 3 hours, and were so p****d off by the time we were done. We had NO room to adjust any measurements and went exactly as the directions said. If we could have had room to adjust just a 1/2 inch different it would have made it much easier. Now my exhaust is rubbing on the mount and makes a horrible noise. Curt makes a nice hitch but they should be checking quality control as most of my latches and pin holes are all slightly off and it is extremely difficult to line anything up to pin together. Also, you have to have a tiny hand to pin the slide rails to the bars. Plus it took a sledge hammer to drive the pins in and keepers. Also, I didn't need to buy a slider hitch - There is plenty of room even on my short box, to allow my 5th wheel camper to travel without hitting the cab when turning tight. And last, when towing the hitch has the feeing there is slack and jerks around that I wasn't thrilled about. 220630

This hitch is very well built and easy to use. It slides very easily with just one or two grease applocations per season. The are only two drawbacks,it is quite heavy compared to other hitches, even after taking the top off. Not a deterrant for me but may be too much for someone who doesnt always have someone who can help get it in/our of the truck. The second is that the rubber sound dampers make it fairly difficult to insert/remove the pins from the rails. I need a hammer and rod to beat them in or out. If you dont use them it does rattle around a bit 529742

Receiving: Packaging was shot, shredded and falling apart. Parts we're falling out everywhere. Surprisingly all the parts were there. Installation: Some manhandling was involved, other than that, everything went smoothly for the most part. Also the instructions weren't very clear. Hahaha, like men read instructions! No, but really, the instructions suck. I'm happy with the product. 491031

I bought the Q24 for my 2016 Ram 3500 and Montana 3810MS. I am still in the process of installation. The directions are unclear on the shims and if they should be used or not. If I put the shims in, you can't get the pins in the bottom. Without them the unit is loose and makes noise. Seems to me they need a shim about half the thickness as the ones provided. Any solutions? Or should I just let it rattle and not worry about it? 476577

Ordered the 24k Curt Slider on a Tuesday. It arrived 2 days later. As has been noted by a few others, the box was in bad shape. Fortunately I have a very good UPS driver and he helped me load it into my new Ram. I parked at the end of my driveway and knew about the time he delivers. He looked around in his truck and found the 1/2 inch bolts that came out of the box. Had the hitch hooked to my RV about an hour later. Everything fit perfectly. Also, the etrailer price was a lot better than other places, so I'm happy. Heading to California from Michigan soon so that will be the real test of the hitch. 435219

I've used this for one year and I can say that it's a solid product that works. Getting out to manually slide the hitch can become a pain in the rear and I've had this bind on me once to where it would not slide at all. Traveling down the road and I've experienced some chucking in both my Ram 3500 and previously Ram 2500. If you have the money, I would highly recommend an automatic slide hitch. 377214

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

Great service from etrailer. My 2 boxes arrived together 1 day earlier than estimated. However, the boxes arrived extremely tattered and beat up. The base of the hitch is severely scratched up as if the box was dragged and the box opened up. Both boxes had been re-boxed and stapled over the original containers. I realize the 2 boxes were heavy but the delivery could have been better. I don't blame etrailer so I still give them high scores. 393007

Received hitch very quickly and in great condition. Will have hitch installed by the folks where I bought our 2013 38 foot Montana fifth wheel. Just had wrist operation and cannot lift heavy objects for several more weeks is the only reason the RV dealer is installing hitch. I am impressed with the fast delivery and design of the hitch. Will post pictures once hitch is installed and hooked up to my rig. 295384

I received this box four days later than the hitch mount box, but that was due to the shipping company, not E-trailer! I assembled and installed the hitch, yet removed in preparation for the spray-in bed liner. It's easy to assemble and seperate into two more manageable pieces. Can't wait to start hauling the RV! 286126

Once I got the rails installed in my 2016 FORD F305( with plenty of ease) almost immediately I went pick up a fifth wheel travel trailer (approximately 14,500#) stopped once to check the hardware, HAD ABSOLUTELY NO ISSUES WITH ANY OF THE HITCH.

I ordered the 24K 5th wheel hitch ton fit the Ford factory mounting sustem. It is easy to install and remove. The lever locking pins work great, but does not provide necessary security, so I added a lock to one side. The hitch operates as designed, but could use more flexibility in movement. Disconnected, the kingpin clamps won't close without the plastic kingpin provided. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and the operation of the hitch. 352582

Arrived timely in a very well protected carton. Handled shipping better than any other 150 lb item I received in a cardboard box. There are a few small scratches but nothing that some minor touch-up (semi-gloss?) won't take care of. Was able to put it together alone and install in the mounting rails in about 30 minutes. Heavier than my old 15k hitch but not so heavy I can't position it alone. May enlist help when it's time to put it away in the fall. 243294

We have pulled a 15500 lbs Cyclone 4200 fifth wheeler over 11000 miles thus year from the 14000ft Monarch Pass in Colorado thur West Virginia where there isn't a flat spot and every where in between. We love the Q24. It has a positive snap whenever it engages and with it's easy to see markings you always know when you safetly engaged. Also the two piece design make it much easier the remove from the pu bed. Would endorse it to anyone. 346585

I have to admit, I was a little worried after reading reviews online about their business practice, however, I have a friend who has ordered from etrailer multiple times so it made me feel more at ease. I received a great price, it was shipped same day, they told me about 4-5 days to receive, and I received it in 2 (ordering Monday, received Wednesday).. so I think when people complain shipping takes longer than promised, I believe it's shipping same day, but maybe they're not considering weekends?? That was mainly the issues I've read about. And I found a price online just a tad cheaper, so I emailed them (per the instructions from my phone rep (who was very pleasant as well)) and the very next day I received a response with the amount I was going to receive as a price guarantee refund. So I have to admit, I'm very thrilled of the service and excited it arrive so quickly. 344604

We took it to a shop to have it installed. It looks great, and the features to make sure our 5th wheel is securely locked in place give us peace of mind. And it's nice that the rails are made just for our 2016 Ram 3500 long bed. It really is well made and is a brute. Can't wait to get out on the road. 269543

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 RAM 3500 Short Bed w/ Puck System Towing 2015 Cedar Creek
  • Although many trailer manufacturers are now designing their trailers with the tapered fronts to be more aerodynamic and also to help increase turning clearance, our hitch manufacturers are still going to recommend using a hitch with a slider opposed to a stationary hitch. Using a slider helps to compensate for the reduced turning clearance on a short bed pickup. Since your 2016 Ram 3500 will be equipped with the puck system, I recommend going with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...

  • Before you can decide on a tank/tool box combo for the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500 truck, you will need to measure the distance between the 5th wheel hitch and the front part of the bed. The measurement should be from the front edge of the front pucks to the front edge of the bed.

If your Power Pull Glider uses industry standard rails, like part # RP58058, then you could use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter, # RP30154, to mount your Valley fifth wheel in your 2016 Ram 3500.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel hitch part # C16545-16025 is the correct fifth wheel hitch to fit the factory rail kit of your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500. This is a stationary hitch though and you have a short bed truck so you would want a slider to give you the needed turning clearance. For that you would need the adapter part # C16023 and then the Curt slider hitch part # C16546. I would recommend returning the hitch you have for this setup.

  • Is 5th Wheel Capture Plate Needed to Tow 5th Wheel Trailers
  • Capture plates are exclusive to PullRite sliding hitches and are used to help activate its automatic sliding feature. The plate installs on the trailer pin box, not on the hitch, so you can tow any brand of 5th wheel trailer without a capture plate as long as you do not have a PullRite hitch. If you do have a PullRite hitch you'll need to have a capture plate on the trailers you're pulling.

  • Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Adapter for a 2015 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • First, the toolbox will likely have to come out because even if it doesn't interfere with the hitch base it could interfere with the pin box on the trailer when making tight turns. To install a slider hitch in your 2015 Ram 3500 short bed with the factory prep package you will need an adapter since none of the slider hitches are a direct fit in the Ram puck system. And for a hitch, I recommend going with a slider that has the most travel to help make tight turns. For an adapter you...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch And Installation Kit For 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Short Bed
  • We have a few options that may work for your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. Since you said you have a short bed you will need a slider hitch at the least, and you said you have bed rails that you do not wish to take off. This would then require a hitch that has more height so you have clearance for the rails. I was not able to find the number 30031 you asked about. You would need to verify the hitch and what its capabilities were to safely use it for your camper. I will make some recommendations...

  • Does Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30074 Fit 2015 Ram 2500 6ft-Bed Without Rail Kit
  • The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30074 that you referenced is a fit for the Ram 2500 with 6-foot bed up to the 2013 model year. This will not fit your 2015 Ram 2500 without the factory-installed rail kit. I confirmed this with my contact at Reese. Also there is no plan to offer a rail kit for your truck that will accept the Elite Series hitches. The good news is that we can offer you other options for 5th wheel towing. The link at right will show you the recommended...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit directly in the 5th wheel prep package on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 short bed I recommend B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K Item # BWRVK3770. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. This hitch is the only slider that will fit directly, without the aid of an adapter, but if you want more capacity you can use the Curt adapter, # C16023, with the 24K slider hitch # C16546.

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Options for 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Diesel Short Bed
  • If your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 diesel short bed has 5 holes in the bed then it has the factory-installed puck system that accepts a fixed 5th wheel hitch like the 24K Curt # C16545-16025. For a slider hitch setup you can use adapter # C16023 to allow use of a slider like # C16536. For a gooseneck kit for this package we have part # C60692 from Curt. If it has dealer-installed industry-standard above-bed 5th wheel rails then you can use a sliding 5th wheel hitch such as Curt #...

  • What Do the Mounting Tabs Look Like on Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16546
  • I went down to our show room and took a picture of what the mounting tabs look like on the Curt 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16546. They are not unlike tabs on other hitches. This hitch will fit Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Pro Series, Reese, Husky, and Valley above the bed rails.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit for 2012 Toyota Tundra
  • The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, # C16468-204, will fit your 2012 Toyota Tundra with the 6-1/2ft bed. This kit uses the industry standard above bed base rails that are compatible with most hitches from Curt, Reese, Husky, Valley and Draw-Tite. This is also a custom kit that will significantly reduce install time. I have linked you to the installation instructions. Since you have a short bed truck, I strongly recommend using a sliding fifth wheel hitch. Typically, short bed...

  • Comparing Curt 16023 and Demco 6194 Fifth Wheel Rail Adapters
  • Each of the fifth wheel rail adapters you mentioned, the Demco # DM6194 and Curt # C16023 will offer you complete security for the hitches that fit on them. The Demco works by turning the locking plate with the thumb screw, which rotates the feet of the adapter locking it into place. The biggest difference between these two adapters is going to be the hitches they fit, which is generally the deciding factor in the adapter they have. The Demco adapter can accommodate any fifth-wheel hitch...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • Going with a higher rated fifth wheel hitch than needed would have no drawbacks aside from the fact that the higher rated hitches tend to cost a bit more. The Curt Q24 Slider hitch part # C16546 that you referenced would be a great hitch to use and even with it's higher capacity it doesn't break the bank like some of them do. For fifth wheel rails you would want to go with a custom install kit like the part # C16424-204 which has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. Custom install...

  • Is the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 Compatible With Bed Mounted Rails
  • Since your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 has a 6-1/2 foot bed, you will want to use the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16546 instead. This hitch is a slider so it will help you with turning clearance and it works with industry standard rails, like part # C16411-204. Even though the 5th Wheel Hitch # C16546 says Q24 on it, it is essentially the same hitch as the Q25 that comes on the 5th Wheel Hitch # C16069. The 24 stands for 24,000 lbs and the 25 stands for 25,000 lbs. Even if you wanted...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500 Short bed With Rail Kit
  • The 2018 Ram 3500 duallys have pretty high towing capacities. But from the research I did on your truck in order for you to have a higher capacity than 21k like you'd need you'll need to have a the Cummins diesel engine and at least the 3.73 gear ratio.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing a King of the Road 5th Wheel 20000 lbs
  • We have a couple options for you, but they are going to depend on a few factors. If the dry weight of your 37 ft King of the Road Fifth Wheel Trailer is 20,000 lbs, then you will want to verify the gross trailer weight, GTW, of your trailer when fully loaded. Knowing the GTW will allow us to choose a hitch that will support your trailer. The highest weight capacity for a hitch that we offer is 24,000 lbs GTW. If your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 has a 6 ft bed, then I would recommend the Curt...

  • Adding a Gooseneck Hitch or 5th Wheel Hitch to a 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Prep Package
  • Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP30845 was designed for aftermarket under bed 5th wheel installation kits but not the factory set up on your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500. But if the truck also has the center hole for a gooseneck ball you can use # C60692 to add a ball and safety chain loops. If you do not have the center gooseneck hole then I recommend using a 5th wheel trailer hitch that mounts directly to the factory prep package. If your truck is a long bed you can...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Install Kit be Installed on 2013 GMC Sierra w/Curt Gooseneck Hitch Already Installed
  • In order to install a different 5th wheel or gooseneck installation kit in your 2013 GMC Sierra the old one, C611-605, would have to be completely removed. The alternative is to keep the gooseneck hitch you have and use the X5 adapter, # C16220, and a hitch that fits in above the bed 5th wheel rails such as the Curt Q24, # C16546. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.

  • Which Curt Fifth Wheel Hitches Fit 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The GM factory fifth wheel rails kits are different sizes based on the length of the bed. So for a long bed the Curt Q25 part # C16069 that you referenced is the correct fit. If instead you have a short bed you'd need the slider equivalent part # C16546 and rail adapter part # C16023.

  • Can a Curt Q24 5th Wheel Slider Hitch be Installed in a 2015 Ram 3500 Long Bed w/Prep Package
  • Slider hitches do not come up in the fit guide for long bed trucks because a slider hitch is not needed on a long bed. Slider hitches are used on short bed trucks because without them there is not enough clearance between the truck cab and the trailer to make tight turns. But there is clearance on a long bed so no slider is needed. For a 2015 Ram 3500 long bed with the factory prep package you would use Curt Q24 hitch # C16545-16021. If you wanted to use the slider version you would...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation For 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Pickup Truck With 6 Ft 4 Inch Bed
  • There are a couple of ways you can go with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 HD with the short bed when considering a 5th wheel hitch. The sliding fifth wheel hitches we carry for your truck have a 12 inch fore/aft travel. For a 16,000 lb hitch I recommend part # C16521. This hitch has a 2-jaw locking system which means less chucking and rattling. For a 20,000 lb hitch I recommend part # C16536, and if you need a 24,000 lb hitch I recommend part # C16546.

I think you were looking at the legs that are designed to fit above-bed base rails. That is part # 16125-SK13. The head you would need is part # C16545, and the legs for your GMC factory rails is part # C16025. If you have a 6-3/4 bed on your truck a sliding fifth wheel hitch is recommended.

Please note that the under bed puck system is limited to 18,000 pounds and looking at the dry weight and cargo capacity of your 5th wheel this might not be rated high enough for you depending on your needs. One nice benefit to this system is that the 5th wheel relocation wiring is supplied with this kit. If you choose another option but still need a wiring relocation...

  • Can Curt Adapter Rails # C16023 Work With ISR Fifth Wheel Hitch On 2017 GMC 3500
  • The Curt Adapter Rails, part # C16023 will fit the pucks in the bed of your 2017 GMC 3500, but have not been tested with an ISR fifth wheel hitch. The center-to-center distance between the slots for the fifth wheel hitch legs is 20-1/2 inches. The problem with using hitches other than the confirmed Curt hitches is the height of the angle on the adapter and how close it is to the fifth wheel leg hole. The angle measures 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 inches. My contact at Curt was not able to tell me...
