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.

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?

Best fifth wheel hitch I've ever owned, easy to install easy to adjust. Ordered this from etrailer on the weekend and it came on Tuesday, the great team etrailer never fail to amaze me. If you're looking for a great product and always the best price you found it at etrailer.com. not to mention the great reviews they do on most of their accessories. I always buy here and have never been disappointed. You will need a torque wrench for this item the bolts need to be torqued to the value listed in the instructions. 554106

Super fast delivery. As advertised it is well packaged and heavily constructed however after I assembled I had to readjust it multiple times so that the puck system would lock into place on my F350. Once it was firmly mounted in place it hooked up nicely to fifth wheel. Overall satisfied with finish product and I would buy again. 447256

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


So far I like this hitch. It is easy to use and you probably don't have to read the instructions to use it. That is it is intuitive. I was able to install the unit by myself even though the complete unit is heavy. I moved the parts into the truck bed in pieces and assembled it there. I found the plate assembly had to be removed in order to torque the bolts to the side brackets. My only concern is the ease for anyone to remove and take the clips and pins. Hopefully not. The other issue is the hitches box was pretty much destroyed when I received it and the legs, packaged separately, were not packed securely. Even though, the only damage was some paint scraping. 398866

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


I purchased this hitch about a year ago. I have pulled my Artic Fox 24' fifth wheel about 6000 miles and love this hitch. It replace a reese fifth wheel with hitch. I absolutely love this hitch. It is very quite when pulling. No clunking when you stop and go. A big thanks goes to Cathy T. for helping me along with the process. I will say that before beginning to install it in your vehicle please read the directions. I installed this in a new chevy 3500 with the puck system on it. You will probably have to loosen up some of the locking nuts with cotter keys in them to get them to lock into place. (instructions tells you that you may have to do this) Hope this helps someone. 476885

It is always great to have a store where you know you are getting the best price & highest quality products. Our Curt 25000 lb hitch showed up quickly & the instructions were easy to follow. We have been enjoying several trips without any issues with noises, binding or unexpected loose & sloppy hitch engagement. It is nice to have a strong, clean and simple hitch that provides security in towing our 45’ toyhauler. Thanks for a wonderful product & experience. 581342

I am totally satisfied with my new hitch. Although once assembled it was heavy. Good thing my son was here to handle this one for me. I like the spread/footprint of the hitch and the mounting mechanism. Much better than the Ford and the Reece configuration. I can say that as I traded my F350 for Sierra 3500 Denali. Hooking my 5th wheel up and unhooking it is much easier than the Reese hitch. The time to receive my hitch was quick also. Thanks for a great product and your assistance. 355052

I've purchased 3 5th wheel hitch products from etrailer each and every time I've never been disappointed.

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

Heavy duty is an understatement for this hitch it is extremely well built. I chose the free shipping since originally I was not in a rush but as normal thing came up I called etrailer customer service and explained my situation they put a rush on the order and it was here in two days great customer care. One tip I would suggest since this hitch is heavy. I assembled it on the shop floor and then placed it in the bed of the truck only to find out that all the pucks were not level and one would not lock down. It was a simple fit of losing the bolts and allowing it to level out then retighten. I could have avoided this extra step by assembling it in the bed of the truck. 396505

Purchased a CURT Q 25, looks like a good solid product. Asked whats the difference between the Q 24 & Q 25. Brint responded within a day. even though the Q 25's weight rating says 24,000 lbs. it's really 25,000 lbs. 3 million huge staples in the box & the handle was still able to poke through the box. I was told it was on back order for over a month, but it still showed up within a week of ordering it. Great tracking system!!!! 474296

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

Awesome hitch. I pulled a 20,000lb fifth wheel across the USA and it worked faultlessly. I have nothing but praise for this hitch. Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

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!

Had a great experience with a great product. So refreshing to see something actual works as advertised. The site said it would fit my truck, be under the rail line and that was exactly the case. It takes about thirty minutes of real work to install. Working alone, it took me an hour - counting all the breaks. The GREEN/RED/YELLOW indicator on the handle makes it simple to know when it's locked, unlocked or ready to lock... Looking forward to hooking up the Toy Hauler. 410979

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


I am very happy with this 5th wheel hitch and etrailer Corporation. I originally had ordered a different hitch but was advised that there was a back order on that particular hitch so after contacting etrailer and speaking with Pat C we were able to work out a deal on the Q25 hitch. I have not gotten to tow with it yet but have installed it in my truck. This hitch is very heavy duty and you will probably need some assistance putting it together but with that said I am confident that this hitch will do the job I need it to do. I am very pleased with the customer service of etrailer and the quick delivery. I will definitely do business with them again. 452638

Working great, I hardly know the trailer is there on the open road. Pulling a Grand Design Solitude 35' with 2017 diesel dually. Hitch pivots in all directions and I love the red-yellow-green indicator for hitch status. 572942

Installed in a 2018 Chevrolet 3500HD. Fit perfectly and was very easy to install. Won’t be able to use until 5th wheel trailer that’s on order comes in. The “puck” system is awesome for installation. Looks like an extremely well built unit. Only complaint would be that one box was ripped open and allowed on piece to get scraped up but a little spray paint cured that. 446456

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

Review from a similar Curt Q25 in Fifth Wheel


Product arrived in a timely manner and was very easy to install in my 2016 GMC Sierra 3500. The toughest part of the assembly is manhandling the heavy pieces to bolt it together. Having a helper would have made that easier, but it's certainly not impossible as a one person install. Once you figure the assembly out, it's a 15 minute job. I had to pull the hitch and raise it up after buying a RV trailer. It probably took me 10 minutes to pull it, raise it, and reinstall in my truck with no helpers. As they say, it's always faster the second time. Easy hookup to our new RV trailer and not a sound as we towed 350 miles thru hills across Arkansas and into Mississippi. 597779

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch for Short Bed Ford F-250 and Fixed Hitch for 2015 F-350 8 Ft Bed
  • Since you already have 5th wheel rails in the F250, you can use any sliding trailer hitch that has the industry standard footprint. For that size truck, I recommend the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R24 Slider - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16566. This has the round tube sliding base for easy non-binding sliding between locked positions. It has the higher capacity to ensure you have a strong hitch to go with your truck. Another great option is the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/...

  • 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)...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Will Cusrt Q25 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 Work with a Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Yes, the Curt Q25 5th wheel hitch, parts # C16566 and # C16023 for short bed or part # C16069 for long bed, will fit your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 as long as you use the wedge # C16992 to properly lock the king pin of the Reese Revolution in place.
