Very nice piece!Arrived sooner than expected. I have the A16 version,that I used for a 10k Lbs 5th wheel and that handle very well but now I'll be towing a 16k tow hauler so I know this a20 will do just fine. And I love the locking jaw versions. I feel these are most secured in any type of towing.

I did call for etrailer customer board for help upgrading my ride pulling my fifth wheel . After many questions on how was ride was at the present he coke up with the curt A20 trailer hitch.
I am not a experienced driver but feels the difference now, and etrailer customer service not only got my drive better but save me money buying the right equipment.
Thank you guys

I have towed with the Curt A20 for a few thousand miles. I really like this hitch. The visual hooked versus unkooked indicator is awesome. It operates flawlessly. I do get some chucking over bridge expansion joints. However, it seems like most people have this problem. On normal roads it pulls great.

Curt A20 still performing flawlessly.

Excellent hitch, took two of us 10 minutes, during a rain storm lol, to put together and install! As far as towing our Redwood 5th wheel it performed flawlessly, easy to hook up and the ride was super smooth and no noticeable bucking!

I ordered my A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch from Christian on Tuesday and it got here on Thursday so super fast shipping.
The hitch was boxed great and everything was there.
I read the instructions and the assembly was a piece of Cake, took me about 20 minutes to assemble and install the hitch,
This is going to be a great upgrade to me previous hitch which was 17 years old.
Thank you Christian, e-trailer and Curt products for a great product, now to hook up and go

by: Dave B09/19/2017

Hitch slid into existing rails after a very minor adjustment. Took my son and I about 25 minutes to assemble, torgue bolts and adjust rails in the bed of my truck. we have used it twice already and camper did not bang and pop like it did on old worn out receiver.
The ordering process was also very smooth. Kelsey took the time to explain the differences in the hitches before I made my decision!
I Would recommend both etrailer and this hitch if you are looking to change out!

by: Donald09/05/2020

Hitch came packed well even though the box looked banged up. Everything was still undamaged and in good usable condition, just minor scuffs. I think this unit will have more when I get done with it. Watched a you tube video from curt on installation and had little trouble installing the hitch following the enclosed guidelines. Everything lined up according to plan. I think the hardest part was getting access by the heat shield. Tough spot to work on but I had help from a younger, more adapt helper who was able to manage just fine. A creeper for underneath was super handy and a 6 foot ladder to climb in and out of the bed made it a whole lot easier. Really did not need to use a lift. Would have made it a bit harder to work in the bed. My truck is quite high which allowed nice working space underneath.

by: James B.07/28/2017

I already had a curt goose neck frame mounted in truck so I used the Curt adopter plate # 16220 an the A 20 curt 5 wheel hitch assembly was very easy with no issues looking forward to putting it to work with my G M C 3500 also purchased a curt bumper dual ball adjustable hitch

by: Amanda 09/24/2022

Highly recommend for all your trailer n eeds!

by: Donald06/21/2020

Seems like a good hitch, installed but haven't used it yet. The way the hitch is packaged is terrible. Even the bolt and bracket kit for the rails wasn't packaged very well. Heavy objects in a box flying around. Box was ripped open but luckily didn't lose any parts. Installed on a 2007 dodge 3500.

10,000 miles and a year later the hitch has been working fine.

by: Val09/21/2021

Very good hitch, I'm pleased with durability and ease of use. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the base locking pins that are slightly smaller than the holes they fit in and make the trailer "clunk" when taking off or stopping.

by: Teresa11/02/2021

The hitch is very robust. It got pretty beat up in shipping, lot of scratches and the operation handle was bent pretty bad. I got it straight enough to operate time will tell

Customer Service will reach out to you.

Bought this as an open box item. I called on a Saturday to confirm a few details on the item and got my questions answered in just a few minutes! Thanks Brett! Was repacked great so arrived in great condition. etrailer has excellent service!

Super hitch, went from Wisconsin to Yellowstone this summer and hitch performed great over all road conditions.

I think it’s the best hitch on the market.

Overall we are very happy with the hitch. We had a learning curve and it took a while for the product to sort of break in but it has worked well for us. The reason for 4 stars vs. 5 is: We were very unhappy with the way it was shipped. It was damaged but not so we could not use it. The packaging was destroyed and the product was dented and had to be painted due to all the scrapes. It arrived pretty beat up. Recently the safety pin chain broke and will have to be replaced. Braided cable might be a better option. The chain given was pretty weak for the abuse that it has to take.

by: James08/25/2021

product is great. I don't have the chucking I had with my pervious hitch. I would have rated this 5 but I wasn't pleased with the condition that the product arrived. However the etrailer customer service was more then helpful with the issue. The damage was only cosmetic.

by: David 07/10/2021

No where in the description did it say the center mount under the 5th wheel plate that the pivot was mounted in rubber. Personably I like this but it a wear item not sure how long it will last( it looks heavy duty). It would have not changed my mine about purchasing it, It should help the ride and take the shock load out of the trailer to truck

by: Rodney10/21/2019

Very nice product.....had some initial installation parts issues that etrailer quickly resolved....I've got 18K pounds on this hitch and all is well, including a few steep grade up and downs.....trailer rides nicely in hitch with virtually no chucking....hitch height just fits under the bed cover and I can remove the hitch
from the rails in two pieces by myself.... really satisfied....I'd recommend this product

by: Josh05/31/2017

I'm happy with the performance of the hitch. The color indicator is added piece of mind that I'm doing things right. It did come with a few minor scratches from shipping and a few scratches most likely came from the factory. Like most 5th wheels they're heavy, so you won't want to carry it far without a dolly. I'm sure the poor UPS guy got a work out. The 7 blade in the box, above bed rails, and hitch were in in 3.5 hrs, but I have a hoist, which helps but not needed to get things installed. I can't express how helpful the installation videos were.

by: William P.12/14/2017

The Curt A20 steel construction looks
real good. Simple to assemble and install on my standard rails . We plan to use it to tow our 5th wheel travel trailer to our winter destinations and back. We had a competitors hitch for the last five years and it was replaced under warranty once and several parts more often. major looseness was the issue. Not willing to put up with it anymore I did some surfing and bought a Curt A20.

by: Jimmy 07/25/2022

Can not wait to get on the road.This hitch is a far cry better than old one that I have

by: Ronald07/22/2018

The hitch is great . The only problem was shipping. When the order arrived the outer box was extremely beat-up. Upon opening, the inner box was so damaged it was not reconizable...the styrofoam was in pieces and the hitch paint was scratched-up. It was treated VERY badly in shipment...I took pictures and was going to forward to you but my phone crashed and that's when I learned my cloud back-up did not include my photos. I needed the hitch immediately for a trip, so I just installed it and chalked-it up as bad luck. With all that said, I owned Reese before but the Curt just seems more substantial

by: Juanita F07/12/2017

Received the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch very timely from UPS. It looks very well built. We (my husband and myself) put it together and had it installed in about a half hour (Very easy with the right tools). We are going camping this weekend. I will take a couple pictures and will let you know how it does.....

by: Angel 09/20/2022

Easy hook-up and release. Easy install

by: TinkerV209/17/2017

I like the hitch so far, though I haven't used it yet. Easy assembly, only the 2 side plate need installed. Appears to be well made. The only problem I've encountered so far is I can't remove the upper hitch plate. I pulled the large pin that holds it to the lower assembly. I wiggle it back and forth and side to side. I feel resistance of the rubber isolator but it doesn't budge. I don't want to pry on it. Perhaps after a few uses it'll loosen. I wanted to remove it to lighten the hitch, to ease the installation. Now I have to struggle with the entire weight of the hitch.

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel Hitch?

  • Comparing The Curt Q20 To The Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt A20 # C16140 and Curt Q20 # C16130 are very similar 5th wheel hitches with the A20 being the more recent addition. The major difference is the A20 has interlocking jaws to further secure your king pin as opposed to the Q20 jaw locking system that do not interlock. This interlocking design is intended to give you more king pin contact on all sides for less jarring and chucking. The A20 also has less zerk fittings to grease and only requires 1 pin to be removed so that you can...

The hitch works very well, the only thing I didn't like is one of the handles for the headpiece is welded a little off. It's like this is a factory second. You can see that the one is not parallel.

You mentioned that it seemed like the handles were welded a little off. I reached out to B and W, who advised that this is something that can occur during shipping. The best solution at this point would be to use a rubber mallet to make the handles level

I love that it came in 2 pieces. Only pulled my Trailer one time so far. I do plan on going on a 2 month RV trip very soon. My son and I installed it. Just measure your 5th wheel trailer height.

up to a 20k hitch for my new truck

by: Jerry 09/20/2022

Every item needed to install my hitch was with the hitch when it was received. With the help of my son it only took about 30 minutes to install. My experience in using this hitch both hooking and unhooking is outstanding and very easy even with a air ride pin box.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado

I purchased this hitch to connect to the Chevy factory prepped 5th Wheel kit for a new 2017 Chev Silverado 3500 dually. My previous truck/ hitch combo (2015 Chev Silverado 3500 single axle 6.5’ bed w/ Reese Pro Series) used industry standard rails and there was quite a bit of movement in the entire hitch assembly and king pin area resulting in significant chucking on the horrible So. Cal. freeways. The B&W hitch was one of two recommended by the professionals at etrailer. I could not be happier. The hook-up is very easy & the overall operation of the hitch is much easier & simpler than my previous hitch. The 1” thick jaw makes a secure connection to the kingpin and the overall ride has smoothed out significantly. Great product so well liked that my son found a used one for sale and snapped it up for his rig.

Pontiac Montana

After 6 months to a year finding a hitch, I decided to purchase the B&W. I reviewed several, talked to fifth wheel owners on what hitch they had, and the majority recommended the B&W. From it's easy to install and remove (if needed), how the hitch is built, It's heavy duty and looks like it's a hitch and rated for the 20k pounds compared to others out there on the market today, great customer service from both B&W and etrailer, I went with it for that reason. Now, after a year of use and 2 dozen pulls or so with it, no complaints. Had to make a small adjustment to it, to stop the "porpoising" affect, and after that, I have a nice smooth ride while towing our Montana 3700LK.

Great Hitch, secure latching and quiet on the road. (No Chucking, unlike the bolt on hitch in my last truck). It is relatively easy to remove and re-install - I'm 67!
I have a small problem Unhitching when there is any pressure between vehicles, the jaws will not let loose unless holding the release lever open as I pull away.

by: Larry 11/07/2021

This hitch is very well designed and sturdy. I have owned 5 or 6 fifth wheel hitches over the last 30 years and this one is the best one. The most significant aspects are the relatively quiet ride and easy hitching and unhitching. The hitch release lever works very easily but my one complaint would be that it is a long reach to fully open the hitch release lever. I installed a step on the side of the box to solve that problem.

We have towed our trailer over 12,000 miles and the hitch continues to work flawlessly.

I am very happy with the B&W companion for my GMC with the OEM puck system. It was easy to install and is going to work great on my truck. I was worried about clearance with my bakflip bedcover on my 6.5 bed but it all worked out great.

The photos, videos and Q & A really helped me make good decision so etrailer is going to continue to get my busness.

by: Mike H01/10/2018

I installed the hitch in my 2018 Chevy 3500HD DRW last night took around an hour. overall the quality is very good on the B&W Companion hitch and it fits into the factory puck system perfect. I have it set on the highest setting but still have to hook up 5th wheel to see if this is correct position or not to give me the correct clearance. Looking forward to trying it out this weekend. The package arrived on time and no damage.

Outstanding customer service/support coupled with a great product at a great price...what more can you ask for? My hitch arrived with superb packaging and simple to follow instructions. Being super meticulous, I installed my hitch in a couple of hours. The Companion's design works fantastic with the OEM puck system in my new 2017 Silverado 3500HD Dually! Really looking forward to hooking up my new 5th wheel and hitting the road! If you are in the market for a new hitch, definitely consider the Made In America B&W Companion 3700 5th wheel hitch!

by: Scott 08/02/2022

Purchased this per recommendation from Jared. This thing was a direct bolt in for my truck as he said it would be. Took me less than an hour to assemble and install. This hitch is incredibly heavy duty for my purposes of towing my new 5th wheel trailer. This thing is going to be instrumental over the next few years for me. Even took a picture with it looking good in my truck!

by: Marc05/13/2022

This is the third 5th wheel hitch I have owned, and I believe that it is far and away the best fixed-position one I have used. This hitch connects, releases, and locks around the kingpin easier than competitors. The shock absorbing pads keep the hitch reasonably quiet on rough roads. The ease with which the head can be removed from the base reduces the total weight that must be manhandled when removing or remounting the hitch in the truck bead. Fit in the OEM GMAC bed mounts is very good.

I have a 2018 GMC 3500 6 1/2 foot bed with the factory fifth wheel prep package. I just bought this fifth wheel hitch and towed with it once but it fits perfectly and tows beautifully, is very well built and is USA made. MAGA!! I have it set over the axle and have plenty of clearance because of the tapered front cap on my trailer. No bucking of jerking like the Reese titan hitch I previously had although it was on a slider. Awesome hitch don't hesitate to buy it.

I’m excited to tow with my new B&W hitch. Fits perfectly and assembly was a breeze. I like the amount of adjustment both vertically and horizontally.

I’m not very technical savvy & couldn’t find exactly what I needed on the website so I called and I have to say they have the best costumer service I’ve ever dealt with! The lady I spoke with was very patient and made sure I got exactly what I wanted and she was even able to save me close to $200.00 of what I expected to pay. They went above and beyond by her calling me back when she found exactly what I wanted and then again after delivery! I’m very happy with the hitch and even more happy with!!

by: Steven09/15/2019

B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch system is rock solid. Although it is quite heavy, but it comes apart for easy lifting. I highly recommend B&W hitch.

Still flawless, and quiet almost 2 years in service as a full-timer with about 41k towing miles on it.
