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.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - C16566 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q25 Dual Jaw 5th-wheel Trailer Hitch with the R24 slider. It has a 24,000 pound weight capacity. Now this 5th-wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th-wheel trailer. It comes with the non-binding slider, which will provide 12 inches more clearance which is required for a short bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. That'll help prevent the trailer from hitting the cab of your pick-up during those slow speed turns. It does slide smoothly on these rounded non-binding rods. The slider is designed for use on trucks with beds that are shorter than 8 foot.

It's not recommended for use on truck beds that are shorter than 6 foot. The head has a nice 2 jaw locking system which provides a full 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact, because of that it'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models. On the head there is 3 lube points and they're easy to access. One right down here, one over here and one over here. They are Zee Grease zerk fittings which will allow you to pop your grease gun right onto them and pump them full of grease for lubrication. Now the hitch height adjustment. This gives you a 4 inch range and the hitch height is measured from your truck bed up to your top of the hitch head.

That's critical because you always want to tow your 5th-wheel trailer as level as possible with the tow vehicle. When you go to mount this cross member to your slider legs, there's three rows of holes that will give you the option of a 4 inch height adjustment, anywhere from 20 inches hitch height up to 24 inches. The head itself, it's based on a unique spherical axle bearing which allows easy pivoting of the hitch head. Gives you a nice smooth 360 degree movement, not just front to back and side to side tilting. Also has built in cushioning to help absorb any road shock. The main feature on this is the three point indicator system. Basically what that is it's a color coding that you will tell you if your hitch is ready to uncouple, couple, or tow, and it's on the back of the handle right here.

It will show a color that's visible from the cab, so if you're in the cab here looking back as you're hooking up, you can tell by what color is showing in that window what position the jaws are in. What I'm going to do is just turn this around to show you what we're talking about here. There we go and you can see right in here there's the window. It has the color in it. Right now you can see it's showing green, and green means you're ready to tow. Basically that means your jaws are completely wrapped around the kingpin.

Now we don't have one in here, but if there was one in here, it would be completely wrapped around there. You're ready to tow, it's all locked, ready to go. If it shows yellow, let's unlock this handle, and we'll open it up. You pull the handle out and the jaws pop right open. Now it's going to show yellow. Yellow will mean the jaws are ready to couple, so it's safe to back your truck and hook up to your trailer. Now if it did happen to show red in there, there's just three colors. Green, yellow, and red. If it showed red, red would mean the jaws are locked open. It's safe to pull your truck away, but it's not in the position to couple right now. This handle, if you notice, it is a lockable handle. Just flip this over to lock it and put the pin and clip through there. It is a short-throw, single-handle operation and the nice thing about this handle it will self reset to the ready to couple position after uncoupling. Also while we have it turned around if you notice these two pins right here with the clips on them. If you pull those out, pull the clips out, pull the pins out, you can actually take the head out of the cross member, and that's handy because it makes it easy for one person to remove the hitch from your truck by taking it all apart in pieces. What I'm going to do now, let's swing this back around. Now this does come with everything shown here. Comes with this included plastic lube plate that goes on to your kingpin so when you're hooking up it will help that kingpin glide smoothly into the hitch during hookup. Comes with four pins and clips that you put through the slider legs to attach them to your base rails. For this video I'm displaying it on base rails and an install kit. But now when you do receive this, you do have to still purchase the base rails and the installation kit for your application. We do sell those separately on our website. It is a simple installation. What I would recommend is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show you the correct base rails and install kit to attach this to your vehicle. These slider legs here are compatible with BMW, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed base rails. The hitch is a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice durable carbide powder coat finish over it. A few specs again on this. The gross towing weight capacity is 24,000 pounds. Vertical low limit is 6250 pounds. The slider travel from front to back is 12 inches. The hitch height we mentioned is adjustable from 20 inches to 24 inches. What I'm going to do now is I want to demonstrate the jaws and the hitch head how they work. Then how the slider would work. Let me grab a sample of a kingpin. This is what a kingpin would be like on your 5th-wheel. Basically we have the jaws already open. We pulled the handle out. It's showing yellow means you're ready to couple. As you're backing up and it's hooking up your kingpin is sliding in. Once it gets in far enough, the jaws as you can see will completely surround the kingpin for 360 degree contact. Then if you look where the color is in the window, it's showing green. You're already to tow. All you have to do is flip that over, line the holes up, put the pin and clip through, and the handle's locked. You're ready to tow. Then if we're ready to uncouple, just reverse it. Unlock it, pull the handle out. It will let the kingpin come out of the jaws. Now that you're all hooked up there, I'll show you how the slider works. This handle, which would be on your driver's side of your tow vehicle. Right now it's in the towing position which means it's closest to the cab. Your cab is back here, so this would be the closest to the cab. When you're on the highway, and not making sharp turns you're fine. But if you get into a campground, and you're having to back your trailer in, you might have to do some sharp turns, you don't want that trailer hitting the cab, so you want to gain an extra 12 inches back to the maneuvering position. Take this handle, and pull it out and just rotate a little bit to hold it open towards the cab. That will hold it in the open position. Then you will see it slide to 12 inches, and once it gets to the maneuvering position, it's locked automatically into place. Now you have that extra 12 inches of clearance, so the trailer doesn't hit your cab. When you're done maneuvering and you want to get back on the road and tow, you want to put it as close to the cab as possible. Same way, take your handle, this time just turn the handle towards the 5th-wheel, that will lock it in the open position and slides back in to the towing position. Just like that, and same way. It slides it over and locks into position. Now you're all ready to tow. That should do it for the review on the Curt Q25 Dual Jaw 5th-wheel Trailer Hitch with the R24 slider, and a 24,000 pound weight capacity.

Three concerns/issues. One, is that my truck sits so high up in the air, (Dodge Power Wagon) that when I was hauling the trailer I had so many issues with swaying. If you tow behind is not fairly level this will happen. It took a long time to figure this out. Might want to pass this along to other customers Two. Should the white disc go between the hitch and the tow behind as a protective disc? Three. on pull behinds there are chains or cables in the event that the trailer unhooks from the hitch ball. There are no safety cables or chains for a fifth wheel. How come? Just inquiring. 599459


Comments
The lube plate goes over the kingpin between the bottom of the pin box and on top of the skid plate of the 5th wheel. The lube plate is so that you dont have to grease the bottom of the pin box to avoid metal to metal contact. The lube plate you will use with Curt fifth wheel part # C16566 is lube plate part # 16721

. Consumer 5th wheel applications connect to the truck the same way that big rigs connect to trailers and this is considered a secure enough connection to not require safety chains. Items that connect to a ball do require safety chains.

This was over kill for me, I always order things more heavy duty than advertised, because they always come as a lesser quality, but not this Time. It was much more heavy duty.

Comments
The hitch is working out great. My only complaint is that sometimes it doesnt want to release from the kingpin and requires some pulling forwards and backwards, putting camper jacks up and down to get it to release. It doesnt happen that often but when it does its a pain?

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


Very happy customer here. Ordered on a Monday and my Curt Q25 hitch was received wed with expedited shipping. I received emails detailing my shipment and a follow up email once received. Email also had attachments to youtube video showing installation of hitch for my truck. Really appreciate the extra customer service and will buy from etrailer again. The curt Q25 hitch was really easy to install on my Dodge Ram with the OEM 5th wheel package. All I had to do was bolt the legs to the hitch and the brace on the legs and place the legs into the "pucks" Took less than 1 hour. Would recommend a helper as the legs are heavy and hard for 1 person to hold and bolt together. 707750

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


I am giving the hitch itself and etrailer a five star rating, as both are excellent. The big issue was all of the nuts and bolts were loose in the box and not in the plastic bags. After gathering up what I could find in the box I was still missing a washer. Thinking I would have to run to the hardware store I went ahead and took apart the hitch head and there was the washer wedged in the jaw mechanism. If I wouldn't have looked closely this could have caused issues with coupling to the 5th wheel. Also, for anyone thinking of installing this alone, don't. I did and it was brutal lifting this as it was heavy and awkward. Also, when replacing the head after removing it for installation, pay close attention to the sliding spacer on the rod that sits down in the mount. If the spacer slides it will not let you place the head all the way in the mount. Took me a while to figure that one out. 668796

Product arrived the day after I ordered it. I now have it installed but have not used it yet. I feel it is a quality piece of equipment. Pretty heavy but needs to be for the load it will carry. A winch from the ceiling may be best if you want to remove often. None issue for me as I have a tractor with pallet forks. Great product so far. 608711

I really like the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that I installed on my Ram 3500. Makes hooking up and disconnecting so easy. The solid latching mechanism lets me know when i am locked up or when I am unlatched. How simple can it be to look at the indicator bar and figure out what the red, yellow, or green mean to me. No complaints after a year of using and the bottom line is - Yes, I would buy it again. 617465

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


Had recently purchased a 2017 F-350 with the factory underbed 5th wheel/gooseneck mounts. My old hitch would not work with this system. Received some advice from Troy on the available hitches and ordered the Q25. Arrived at 10am yesterday, took me about 1.5 hours to install. The instructions were very clear. I followed the instructions for measuring the height of the hitch for establishing a level ride for the trailer. The problem then was insufficient clearance for the bed rails. Had to unbolt and rebolt the hitch to the legs on the center bolt holes. The only minor complaint is access to the bolts for tightening. Especially an issue when I had to use the center holes. Connecting and disconnecting to the trailer was very easy. 4 stars only because of the bolt issue. 441164


Comments
Very easy hitch to use! Also like the ease of removing the hitch to use the full bed of the pickup. Can remove by myself but is definitely easier with two people. Great hitch!

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


The product is ok so far , there isn't any information on which holes equate to the 13 - 15 - 17" height setting . ALSO - the arm that activates the hook up for the jaws is very stiff and does not even come close to the ease of operation that the video shows. The shipping packages were very damaged and open at one end . The head was scarred as were the legs. The delivery person even suggested that we open the cartons to assess the damages. I figured that since everything was steel that not much could have been damaged so he left it at that. I had to use a thread chaser on one of the holes as it was cross threaded and would not accept the bolt. Besides all of this I hope the hitch is as robust as you all claim. Thank you - Mike 447661

So the only problem I've seen so far was damage to the box. The box looked as if it had fell out of the truck a few times. The legs were scratched up but I'm ok with that. Instructions are easy. Install is simple. I have the factory rail and goose neck on a 2017 GMC 3500. The hitch is very heavy so I recommend putting it together in the bed unless you have help. It weighs 186lbs according UPS. Nice hitch. I have not used it yet. Comments on its performance will have to come later. 337676

Use this hitch in a 2017 F350 Dually using factory puck attachment to tow a 20,000 41 Ft trailer. Very easy to hitch and unhitch trailer, and tows with little chucking and popping. The ability to remove the top portion with four pins makes it a one-person job to install and remove the hitch from the bed of the pickup. The color coded locking indicator makes hitching nearly fool proof. You can spend a lot more, but I don’t think you would actually get a better hitch. Great value for a good towing solution. 588037

I purchased this hitch for a 2015 Ram 3500 4X4 with an 8 foot bed to pull my 2019 5th wheel trailer a Grand Design Solitude 310GK. The trailer is 35 feet long and weighs approximately 15,000 pounds when fully loaded. This is my first 5th Wheel , I have always had a motor home in the past. The Curt 5th wheel hitch has performed perfectly over the past year in all kinds of terrain. I have backed the trailer into many campsites that have a steep entry and/or required a very tight turn to get into it. Absolutely no issues with this hitch, I would highly recommend it. 738731

  • Benefits of Using Higher-Rated 5th Wheel Hitch
    Curt's 24K-rated 5th wheel hitch # C16566 is a slider type that will fit into any industry-standard above-bed 5th wheel base rails from any manufacturer. Since this is a slider hitch is it ideally suited to a short-bed truck application like your 6-3/4-foot bed F-250 where extra clearance is needed to avoid trailer-to-cab contact when making tight turns. Long-bed pickups do not need this slider feature so they can use fixed-type hitches that do not slide. Very short beds (under 6-feet)...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 Short Bed
    From your picture I can tell your 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 is a short bed so you'll need a slider hitch to allow you the clearance needed to make tight turns. Since car haulers can be pretty heavy you'll want a higher rated hitch like the Curt Q25 part # C16566 which has a 25k capacity. For a rail kit to install in the bed of your truck you'll want a custom install kit like the part # C16420-204 which will install in less time than a universal kit and will minimize drilling. For a 7-way...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes
    There is a specific set of parts needed in order to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 that has the Ram Box feature. The issue is that the Ram Box truck bed is more narrow than a regular bed and as a result the trailer pin box will hit the bed sides when turning. In order to make it work you will need to use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer and fixed 5th wheel hitch in the truck. The first thing to check is if there is a Sidewinder that fits the trailer. To determine that...

  • Fixed Hitch To Replace Curt Slider that Was Chucking Recommendation
    Hey Alex, so the Curt Q Series of fifth wheel hitches aren't known for terrible chucking, but I am not shocked to hear that you are experiencing it. Especially with a slider hitch as they are more prone to chucking due to more moving parts. Going to a fixed hitch with a tighter jaw design is your best option. This will do the best job at eliminating as much of the chucking as possible. The B and W Patriot fixed hitch part # BWRVK3255 will make a huge difference and is the hitch I recommend....

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch to Fit B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
    The only way to know how heavy a hitch you need is to find the trailer's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) which is its maximum weight when fully loaded. There's likely a tag on the trailer that states the GVWR, or it may say on the trailer's documentation. You may also be able to contact the trailer manufacturer with the VIN to find its specs from when it was built. As a last resort you can load the trailer and weigh it. Of course this requires you to get it to a scale and you still...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Hitch Options for 2007 Silverado Classic
    Only the 3500-series of the 2007 Chevy trucks has a towing capacity up at the 20K+ range you need for a new trailer that weighs 18K dry. Towing capacities vary based on engine, rear axle ratio, cab style, bed length, etc. The online Chevrolet towing guide notes the maximum 5th wheel towing capacity for a 3500 HD with 6.6L Duramax as 23,000-lbs. You'll definitely want to confirm that your specific truck has the capacity (and some extra safety margin too) for towing a loaded trailer of...

  • Base Rails Compatible With Pro Series Fifth Wheel on 2011 Ford F-250
    To install the Pro Series # 30862 in the 6-3/4 foot bed of your 2011 Ford F-250 without a factory rail kit you would need the Reese Universal Base Rails # RP30035. However, with a short bed truck it is highly recommended you use a sliding hitch so that your fifth wheel trailer does not come into contact with your F-250's cab. For a sliding hitch with a capacity similar to that of the Pro Series I recommend checking out the Curt Q25 # C16566 which installs in your F-250 with base rails...
