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.

Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - C16671 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Q20 fifth wheel trailer hitch on the R20 slider for the Chevy and GMC towing prep package and this has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMS Sierra 2500 and 2500 trucks with the six and a half foot bed and the factory rail kit. This fifth wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. This one is mounted on a non-binding slider, which will help provide clearance that's required for your sharp bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. The slider travel will give you 12 inches front to back and when you get that, that will prevent your trailer from hitting the cab of your truck during sharp, slow speed turns.It is designed to slide smoothly on these rounded non-binding rods and it is designed for use on trucks with beds shorter than eight foot but not recommended for use on truck beds shorter than six foot.

The head on this uses a nice two jaw locking system here, provides a nice 360 degree jaw to king pin contact. Because of that, it will give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar models. This does use a unique spherical axial bearing that the pad sits on. It allows for easy pivoting of the hitch head. What's nice is it will give you a complete smooth 360 degree movement, not just front to back or side to side tilting.

It also gives you built in cushioning to help absorb any road shock.The head is a nice self-aligning head, it will pivot for simple hook up. Does have three lube points, which make it very easy to grease your head. They're easy to access. There's one right down here for the bearing and then on each side there's a grease fitting. Now, it also uses a two pin head removal, which makes it easy for one person to take this apart and remove it out of the truck.

Basically, there's a clip here and a clip here. If you just pull those clips, slide the two pins out, that will allow you to take the head out of the cross member, then you can take the cross member off and then you can take it apart. One person could remove the hitch.This will also give you a four inch hitch height adjustment. Hitch height is critical because when you go to tow your trailer, you want it to be as level as possible with your tow vehicle. Now, hitch height is always measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head, so this will give you a range when you bolt your center cross member to your slider, it will give you a range of four inches, anywhere from 18 and three-quarter inches up to 22 and three-quarter inches.Another nice feature on this fifth wheel is on the handle here, they use a three point color coded indicator system and what that tells you is the position of your jaws.

They use it by showing you a color and that's visibile from the cab, so if you're in the cab here and you turn around and look right at the handle, it will show you a color right in this hole here. Right now, it's showing a green circle. That's telling you the jaws are completely locked, you're ready to two. If it showed yellow, then it would mean you're ready to couple. The yellow does mean you're ready to couple and if it showed red that means you don't want to couple, it's not set up right now for that. By looking at what color is in the handle there, it'll tell you the position of the jaws.This is a lockable handle. You can see it has a pin and clip. Just flip that open and it will let you open up the handle. It's a very short throw single handle operation and again, to lock it, all you have to do is flip the latch over, slide your pin and clip through there and it will lock the handle in place. Now, the hole is large enough if you had a small shackle, pad lock you could put through there for extra security if you prefer. We do sell those separately on our website. I am going to show you how this handle works here in a minute when we show you how to hook up.Now, this does come with a plastic lube plate. This lube plate is included. This goes on to the king pin of your fifth wheel and as you hook up, it will help that king pin glide nice smoothly into the hitch during hookup. Now, to install this into your vehicle, it's a very fast, easy installation. Basically, it will just drop right in to your four receiver pucks that are built in to the factory under bed rails. To get it prepared for it, all you have to do is pop the pin and clip, swing open the latch and that will rotate that tab. You do that on each corner. Once they're all open, you drop it right into the receiver pucks. Once they drop in, rotate those handles back on each corner. That will rotate the tab and lock it into position and then just put your pin and clip back in and that will hold the handle in place. Very simple to install, very simple to remove.This whole hitch is a sturdy steel construction, has a nice durable carbide powder coat finish to it. Again, the application on this is for 2016 and newer Chevy and GMC trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds, vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 5,000 pounds. And again, the last thing I want to show you is how the jaws operate and how the slider will operate. Here's an example of the king pin, what the king pin would look like on your fifth wheel. When you go to hook up, what you want to do is take your pin and clip out, flap your latch over and again, just pull your handles, very short throw. You can see the jaws pop right open. As we mentioned, if you look at the color, it's showing yellow. Yellow again means you're ready to couple.When you go to hook up, your king pin will slide right into the jaws. The dual jaws you can see will wrap around completely, lock into place, the handle you see slid over, showing green. Green means you're good, ready to tow. Flap your latch back, take your pin and clip, slide it through there and you're all locked, ready to go. Now, right now, we have it in the towing position, meaning the king pin is closest to the cab so if you're on the highway towing, you're not making real sharp turns. Now, if you get to your campground and you need to back it in and make some sharp turns, you want to gain that extra 12 inches.To do that, you just go over to this handle here, it's for the slider and it's showing you towing position. Over here it says maneuvering position. To move it to maneuvering, just pull your handle out and then just turn it away from the position you're going to and that will set it up to lock in automatically. When you go to slide, you can see it slides, locks right into the maneuvering position. You gain that 12 inches, now you can make your sharp turn. When you're done, you're ready to get back on the road and tow. Pull it again, again, turn it away from the towing position that you're going to and now it's set up to lock up into towing position, slides that way, you can see now it locks right into towing. Simple as that, just by pulling the handle out for the slider.But that should do it for the review on Curt Q220 fifth wheel trailer hitch on the R20 slider for the Chevy GMC towing prep package with a 20,000 pound weight capacity.

Just installed today, all parts are very heavy. I will need a crane to take it out. Had to go to hardware store because of some wrong parts in sealed bags. Handle was bent my guess was during shipping. Maybe a little to early for a complete review. Looking forward to hooking up the trailer and testing hitch. 670303

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


This 5th-wheel hitch has worked flawlessly! When towing my 40' Keystone Montana RV, it's virtually like it's on rails at any speed. Recently, I made the mistake of turning too sharply trying to exit the parking area where it had been stored, and hit a supporting pole of a chain link fence 4" before clearing it. That tore off the rear cap of my RV, but the hitch didn't budge or bend one iota! That thing is as solid as a rock and utterly dependable! I don't believe I will ever have to have it repaired much less buy a new one. Thank you for a truly OUTSTANDING product! 699074

After watching a YouTube video, assembly wasn't a problem. Hitch seems ok, haven't used it enough yet. The one problem I Have at this time is the Curt decal on the hitch head was installed crooked . It looks like a kid put it on. If I can't get another one I'll tear that one off and repaint if needed 634939

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

This 5th wheel hitch fits OEM hitch mount provisions perfectly on my 2017 Ram 3500. Connecting and disconnecting works well. This hitch is heavy for one person to manage, but a hoist set-up makes for easy installation and removal. Tows well with no play between trailer pin and truck. Great product. 625666

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

I bought the 5th wheel to haul trailers and, it's been a great hitch and has been maintained but it's starting to breakdown, parts are failing , but if used for a personal trailer, it will be a great hitch 264239

Shipping was little quirky the factory shipped it via freight and i had to go pick it up from the freight company about 30 minutes away. Once i got it home it was packaged well, installed was very strait forward, it is heavy though so make sure you have two people to lift it into the truck. Have yet to pull a trailer with it so we will see how that goes. Overall assembly height is when installed onto the ram oem rail system adapter is fairly high roughly 57" in the back of 2016 ram 2500. seems like a great product, time will tell. 339057

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


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.

This is one of the finest hitches I have ever had. I love the ease of operation, the strength it has, and its light weight enough that I can remove it by myself if I want to take my hitch completely out of the bed of my truck. It is a breeze to connect and disconnect by myself, which is a major plus for this solo traveler. The other bonus is the small profile in the bed of the truck, and I still have room to load all my art gear for a show. I would highly recommend it to everyone! 584507

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


I had a 16K Husky 5th wheel hitch for 12 years. It came with the RV purchase. We upgraded to a larger 5th wheel in 2015. I pulled it with the K16 but due to wear on the hitch I didn't feel comfortable. I searched the internet and came upon etrailer.com. I began researching different hitches. I settled on Curt due to it's reviews. I placed an order with etrailer and the next day I got an email with all of the shipping and tracking information. I had the hitch in 5 days. I was very disappointed when it was delivered. The shipping box was very light duty and had been reinforced with pieces of cardboard damaged. There was also a lot of heavy duty staples holding it together. I took photos upon delivery. After I opened the box I found the hitch was damaged. I immediately sent an email with photos of the box as received and the damage to the hitch. I called customer service and talked to Gina and Janice and went over the details. I was given instructions for returning the hitch and was emailed necessary papers to ship it back at no charge. I dropped it off at UPS the same day and received notification in 3 days that it was received. I was also advised a new hitch would be sent out and I received it in 3 days. At first I was very upset but after. That quickly changed after talking to the staff and receiving the new hitch within 5 days. These type things sometimes happen. I give the staff at etrailer.com an applause for their quick handling of this issue. I have since made another purchase. Give them a try. 275867

Extremely happy with the new hitch, very easy to assemble (4 bolts, local dealer wanted $300 to assemble), even easier to attach to my factory hitch mounts (Ford). Get someone to help you lift it into your truck. 480689

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


Pros: I've been using this hitch for about a year to tow my 5th wheel, and I've probably hooked up to it about 20 times. It's a really great hitch, easy to work, and I really like the color coded features (red, yellow, and green) that show when the hitch is connected or not and ready to tow. I haven't used the slider so I can't comment on that other than it appears to be easy enough to use. I LOVE the puck system to install it in the bed of the truck. As far as etrailer, they are great! They asked some questions to help me determine my needs, and then they provided a number of possible hitches. They were great about answering any questions I had. I've purchased several things from them in the past, and I HIGHLY recommend etrailer!!! Cons: There were a few places in the installation documentation that could have been easier to decipher. There were several videos online showing how the product works, but I couldn't find anything showing how to put it together. This would have been extremely helpful. Also, CURT claims this is a two man lift and can be easily removed from the truck. NOT TRUE! This thing is HEAVY, but it's supposed to be. Unless you have a piece of equipment to help lift it you should plan on leaving it installed. 482315


Comments

I apologize for the delayed response. I think Ive had the hitch for about two years now, and I use it to tow a fifth wheel RV quite a lot throughout the year with my Ford F-250. Its been a great hitch and is really easy to use. Probably the best part about it is that it uses the in-bed puck system. I have no regrets on this purchase.

Just got back from a two-week road trip out west, the new trailer hitch performed without a snag! Easy docking and undocking, very nice to have a nice smooth ride. We are very impressed and thankful for an excellent product. The package in which the hitch arrived was in pretty rough shape, but all the pieces arrived. There is one place on the deck itself where it took some scuffing of the paint from whatever it was banged on during shipping. We are going to have to touch up that place to keep it from rusting in the elements. All in all, this was a great buy. Thanks 574834

Any good quality rust inhibiting spray paint like Rust-Oleum would work just fine.

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


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

Because of personal medical issues, I had the hitch installed professionally. I pull a 38' fifth wheel behind a Duramax powered Chevy. The hitch has served it's purpose well and looking forward to using it for many more years!! I purchased the slider version, but have found that I would NOT have had to purchase a slider because of the design of the front of my fifth wheel, as seen in the pic's. I am able to do 90 degree turns without any problems (without moving the hitch rearward). 302964

Great customer service... I keep coming back because of there customer service. I can find it cheaper on [online store] but the customer service is above and beyond. Just picked up new hubs and wheel and tire assemblies for my double ski trailer...Again great service and free shipping.... Hally and Lindy were both very friendly and went above and beyond. That kind of customer service is rare in todays market...Thanks again... 714984

I ordered this hitch on Sunday 8/25/2019 and it was delivered the Following Wednesday 8/28/2019. It took me about 40 minutes to assemble with a little help. It was just as advertised and the free delivery was a nice touch. Both the Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch and etrailer.com are highly recommend. 695166

The shipping estimate was perfect and delivered on time. Haven’t had the opportunity to tow with it yet, but the hitch came with minor scratches and small dents due to shipping. Definitely would still recommend. 676684

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


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

Review from a similar Curt Q20 in Fifth Wheel


After I bought my new camper the search was on for a better hitch. I previously owned a little rocker 15k with the slide bar style locking mechanism. It worked well but with the bigger camper I wanted something that would eliminate the chucking in the hitch that I was getting. After looking at a lot of other hitches and comparing price vs. features I settled on this hitch. The box it was shipped in was pretty beat up when it got to my house but I kinda expected that. The hitch survived the journey without a scratch. Its built very heavy, but not so heavy that I cant remove it my truck by myself. The fitment between all the components seems good without a lot of slop. After setting the height I hitched up to the camper and took her for a test run. I am very happy with the results so far. The only place that I get any movement is where the hitch connects to the rails but I plan on purchasing the felt pads to eliminate that in the future. The indicators on the release bar are very nice, its nice to have a visual indication and know the jaws are locked. Even after a year of use i still can't find anything to really complain about. If anyone is looking for a solid hitch that won't break the bank I would strongly recommend this one. 607787

Working great. Well constructed. No issues. I'm quite pleased with Curt products. (Important tip: don't forget to slide the hitch back before making a sharp turn, such as at a gas station. The RV WILL break your back window if you forget.) 602588

I purchased this unit a year ago and could not be happier. It performs beautifully and is solidly made. Assembly and installation was a snap for me. I take out during periods of extended non-use and the process is simple both removing and re-installing. I would recommend highly. 593574

Good product! The only issue we have found is trying to release the hitch, if the weight on the hitch plate is not just right the handle will not release. 588246

2 years ago I bought a inexpensive Curt hitch for a previous camper. I asked what the difference was between that and an 800 to $1,000 unit, now I know why. The long-term ride with this hitch is really great, double Jaws versus single Jaws is the way to go 587766

  • Will Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 Fit Factory Rail Kit on 2017 Silverado Short Bed
  • The Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16069 referenced in your question will physically fit without issue into the factory pucks on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed. The reason we only list this particular hitch as a fit for the 8 foot beds is simply because it is a stationary hitch, and with short bed trucks, a sliding hitch is typically needed to provide the necessary cab clearance for making sharp turns. For a sliding fifth wheel hitch that will fit the factory...

  • Underbed 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kits for a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
  • You can install a 5th wheel hitch in your truck BUT Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16671 was designed for Chevy/GMC trucks that came with the factory 5th wheel prep package. This package was not available on the 2015 model year GMC Sierra 2500. It wasn't available as an option until the 2016 model year. For an underbed system that is like the factory prep package you can use one of the following set ups: Reese install kit # RP30868 with hitch # RP30144 B&W kit # BWGNRK1012-5W,...

  • Yes, the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider # C16671 is a complete fifth wheel hitch and slider that fits directly to factory GM fifth wheel rail kit your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 short bed has. This would be the only part number you'd need to install a hitch in your truck and be ready to tow.

  • Recommended Curt 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra Short Bed with Factory Puck System
  • I believe you are referring to the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider # C16671, which is a confirmed fit and what I recommend for your Sierra 3500 if it has the 6-1/2 foot bed. The primary difference between the Curt Q20 and the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16669 that you also mentioned is that the Q20 features a unique, spherical axial bearing that allows it to move 360 degrees. This will provide a smoother and much more enjoyable ride when pulling your trailer when...

  • Best and Lightest Slider Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 with OEM Rail Kit
  • The total weight of the Curt Q20 for GM Tow Package rail kits is 316 lbs. The only part of this hitch that's easily separable is the rail kit adapter that comes with the kit part # C16023 which weighs 79 lbs. So since you want a lighter slider kit your best option by far is the B and W Companion Slider for GM Rail Kit part # BWRVK3770 which has a 20k capacity. This weighs a total of 255 lbs and has a head that was designed for quick and easy removal to distribute some of the weight better....
