Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Struggle to see if your king pin is fully latched - color-coded system makes it easy to see from your cab
  • Go down washboard roads to get to your favorite campgrounds and need a little extra shock absorption to keep from feeling every bump

No, if you:

  • Have raised side rails - since this hitch sits low in the bed, it might not give you enough space for your trailer to clear
  • Have a hard time lifting heavy stuff by yourself - even though the head comes off, the base is still about 100 lbs on its own
  • Prefer American-made craftsmanship

Secure, Interlocking Two-Piece Jaw

A20 Two-Piece Interlocking JawA20 Two-Piece Interlocking Jaw

Unlike slide-bar models, the rounded, interlocking, 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

A20 Color 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).

Easy to order from etrailer with fast shipping. Ordered on Mon estimated delivery on Fri but came in only 2 days for a deliver Wed. Curt A25 hitch packaged very well good instruction easy assembly on tailgate filling installed and torqued in less that 30 mins.


It is well built. Directions could have better illustrations. Putting handle together was the most difficult part of process. It dropped right into my existing rails. Have not hooked my fifth wheel yet, but very satisfied with the finished product.


Ordering from etrailer was a great decision! I got a confirmation email for my order within minutes and an email it had shipped in just a few hours. I was given an expected delivery date and it actually showed up a day early. I’m super impressed with the customer service! I bought a fifth wheel hitch and found an [online] video for my truck and hitch that was extremely helpful, especially since all the RV dealers in the area were two months out to install it. All in all dealing with etrailer has been a great experience and I will definitely be going back for any of my other RV needs!


My 5th wheel package was robbed during shipping.
I received it, the box had obviously been opened and then taped shut.
When I opened it, the base of the 5th wheel hitch was gone!
I called etrailer's customer support and they were amazing.
I sent pictures of the package I took before and after I opened the package.
The customer support rep said that was all I needed to do.
And they shipped a new base two days later.
I just received the base of the hitch.
I am extremely happy that etrailer's customer support was so responsive when I had a serious problem!
Thank you etrailer customer support!


It was poor delivered and packaged. I don’t even know if all the parts are in there yet till tomorrow. There was a huge hole delivered and they even tried to patch up the box. SMH


Packaging was tore up, expected that. The head had been dropped and bent the engagement handle. I peened it back to straight to get the black handle back on and moveable. otherwise no issue with the product so far.

I apologize for the handle being bent. I am glad that you got it bent back in place and it is working out fine for you!

Very fast shipping and good customer se rvice.


Best hitch I have ever purchased even got my friend to switch


etrailer sells high quality Curt products. I order Curt products from etrailer and all reasonably price, process works great, online order through physical final delivery,


I am very pleased with my purchase from etrailer. The 25,000 pound hitch and hardware was shipped promptly and received from UPS in good condition.
Thanks, etrailer!


Took me a month, but I finally got the Curt A25 fifth wheel hitch in my truck and took it for nearly 150 mile trip to see how it would work. My wife and I both were amazed at how quiet and the bouncing, snapping, popping and cussing were all gone. This hitch is absolutely amazing. Before, when I just pulled out of my driveway, the old fifth wheel would snap and pop loudly several times. It was so quiet with the Curt A25 (new one), both of us looked at each other and looked back to see if the trailer was moving with us. (It was) Thank you to Curt for building it so well and to all of the people at etrailer that recommended it and ensuring it was all right.


I have pulled a 16,000 lbs 5th wheel over 13,000 miles with this hitch and no issues. It arrived with the package damaged and the handle bent. Etrailer quickly replaced the part. The base will rust if not covered. If you remain hooked up for an over night stay, you will need to lower your jacks to stabilize and prevent rocking do to the hitch’s design. Great product.


Excellent customer service. Hitch arrived on time in perfect condition.


Had a Pullrite Superglide in my old F350 standard bed but when I upgraded to the 8ft bed of the dually, I went with this hitch. Hitch came in 2 boxes and although the boxes worked banged up a bit, everything was there and fine. It only took about 30 minutes to bolt everything together and install on the rails that were already in the truck. I actually had to take the hitch apart once to adjust the hitch up a little. I wanted it as high as possible in the bed, while still clearing the Roll N Lock retractable bed cover. Looks good, seems solid and well made. Hitch head comes off to make it easier to remove this hitch, but even with the head connected, I am able to move the hitch in the truck (would need to take head off for me to lift the hitch out of the truck). Also installed a BedRug at the same time to clean up the bed.


Purchased the Curt 25 A. 25,000 lb capacity with articulating head. I pull an 18,000 lb 5th wheel camper with a 3500 diesel dually. There is lots of movement when braking and start of pull after a full and normal stop. I would not buy the articulating model again. The product seems to be well built just too much front to rear movement in the head.


Curt A25 fifth wheel hitch... received in record time ,box was damaged and the pull arm was bent. Called Etrailer and they sent me another pull arm immediately. Great customer service, will continue to do business here. Thanks Molly and George


Great Hitch. I haven't used it to pull yet but it's heavier and seems more sturdy than the Reese I replaced. I also like the interlocking jaws. Many time hitching with the reese I'd have to use a flashlight to see that the jaws were closed but not any more. I'll update once I pull the camper with it.


I was happy with the transaction with etrailer. The website was very helpful in finding what I needed. The product was received ahead of the committed date. The only problem was with the packaging. Some of the boxes were pretty beat-up and the parts were scratched with the finish damaged. That was a little disappointing.




This makes life real easy. The hitch works great and is a real improvement over my older model.


Arrived in great shape, easy to install. Can't wait to give it a try. Looks well built and easy to use. The release handle is just in a different position than my old 20K Reese so will be a little more of a reach to get to the lock pin.


This fifth wheel is very noisy and a loose connection. I would not recommend it.


Seems to be a great product


It’s held up great. No slack in the kingpin jaws or anywhere else. All the products bought work just the way they were advertised.

I’ve pulled my fifth wheel a little over 10,000 miles and still works great. No problems with any of it.

  • Will the Curt A25 Hitch Fit in Industry Standard Base Rails
    As long as your Pullrite rail kit provides you with industry standard base rails to mount a 5th wheel hitch, the Curt A25 # C16180 will fit, since it's designed to fit in industry standard base rails. I've attached a photo of the dimensions for industry standard rails that you can compare yours to.

    Since your 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500 already has above the bed rails used for your 20K Reese hitch then you will not need any other parts to mount the Curt Q24 hitch # C16245. It will fit in the same industry standard above the bed rails as the Reese hitch. Given that the gross weight rating of the trailer is 24K I recommend going with the Curt A25 # C16180. Having a hitch that is rated for more than the gross trailer weight is ideal. Even if you don't plan on loading the trailer to the...

  • How is the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch C16180 Different from the Q25
    According to Curt the A25 hitch # C16180 is a rebranded Q25 with a head that is made of stronger material. The A25 is the newer version. The changes made to the head address some issues with head failure associated with the Q25. The Q25 was a beefier version of the Q24.

The A25 has an interlocking dual jaw for increased security. The A25 also has built in grease zerk fittings to make maintenance just a little easier. It also has a 1 pin head removal compared to the 2 pin option of the Q25. They are both nice 5th wheel hitches, but the A25 has those couple of really nice features as an upgrade....

    The difference between the Curt A25 part # C16180 and the Curt Q25 part # C16265 is the jaw system. I have attached a photo for your reference. The A25 is an upgraded version of the Q25 because of it's interlocking jaw. The A25 interlocking jaw results in full contact with the king pin on the fifth wheel which reduces the rattle and chucking you may experience with a looser king pin connection. Although both options are great fifth wheel hitches with 25,000 lbs of towing capacity, the A25...

It fits in standard above-bed base rails also features a handy 3-color indicator system which easily lets you know when you're ready to hook up, tow, or uncouple.

    You are correct, the Lippert Tri-Glide has since been replaced with the Lippert Trailair Flex Air in favor of a more streamline design with less moving parts. In regards to comparing the Trailair to the MORryde, the Trailair uses an airbag with shock absorber and the MORryde uses a rubber spring. The Trailair will provide a smoother ride and have more adjustments but the MORryde will be a bit more durable. They are both great options for you but it really just depends on preference. With...

    The hitch jaws that grip the 5th wheel's king pin and the suspension system (for the lack of a better term) for the hitch head are the main differences between the A25 and the Q25. The A25 like the # C16180 uses an interlocking jaw system that does a better job of holding the king pin tightly, making contact with the king pin all around its 360° circumference. This leads to less rattling and banging which makes for a more comfortable ride. The A25 use a torsion dampening system in the...

With another moving part, the Sidewinder will not work as it needs to being firm at the kingpin and only rotate at the turret of the pin box.

The A-Series has a dual interlocking jaw system which forms a much tighter grip on the kin pin therefore provides a smoother ride. The Q-Series has dual locking jaws but they don't interlock.
