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.

I ordered the 24K 5th wheel hitch ton fit the Ford factory mounting sustem. It is easy to install and remove. The lever locking pins work great, but does not provide necessary security, so I added a lock to one side. The hitch operates as designed, but could use more flexibility in movement. Disconnected, the kingpin clamps won't close without the plastic kingpin provided. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and the operation of the hitch. 352582

Received hitch very quickly and in great condition. Will have hitch installed by the folks where I bought our 2013 38 foot Montana fifth wheel. Just had wrist operation and cannot lift heavy objects for several more weeks is the only reason the RV dealer is installing hitch. I am impressed with the fast delivery and design of the hitch. Will post pictures once hitch is installed and hooked up to my rig. 295384

I have owned this hitch over a year now it has been top quality. From the easy access freeze fittings to the smooth hook up and unhook is great. Reduces chucking as well. We towed our 16000 pound big Horn fifth wheel over a 1000 miles with no problem. Using in conjunction with mor ryde King pin and a2017 Ford F350 diesel dually. Would recommend to anyone full-time RVing such as or self's. 601994

Recently ordered and received the Curt Q24. Everything was in great condition, all parts were included, easy to assemble, and very easy to install on my truck with Factory OEM rails .

Being able to use the factory Ford in bed 5th wheel mounts (pucks) with the hitch makes removal fast and easy with no tools. We have had no issues with the hitch in a years worth of full time use with our 44 ft toy hauler. It has only rarely been out of the back of my truck and the finish still looks great with no rusting. The hitch is pretty quiet with only minimal sounds in stop and go traffic, and no sounds at all once under way. I would definitely recommend this hitch. 521122

  • Difference Between Curt Q24, Q25 and A25 5th Wheel Hitches for Ford Fifth Wheel Towing Package
    That's a good question and the only difference between the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 and Curt Q25 # C16039 fifth wheel hitches for your 2019 Ford Super Duty with the Fifth Wheel Towing Package is the head unit: the Q25 head is rated for 25,000 lbs while the head of the Q24 is rated for 24,000 lbs due to its slightly reinforced square body. That said, both of the hitches have legs that are rated for 24,000 lbs, which means the towing capacity of both remains 24,000 lbs. The Curt A25 #...

  • Comparing The Curt Q24 And Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitches For a 2019 Ford F-350
    The Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16545-16017 and Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30871 are both excellent options for a 2019 Ford F-350. I recommend the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch because it has a greater height adjustment which is needed to accommodate tall bed sides on new trucks, a wrap-around jaw design that has a better grip therefore does more to reduce chucking/jarring, and it physically lighter therefore easier to get in and out of...

  • Will Spray In Bed Liner Be Issue for Installing Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Designed for Ford Rail Kit
    Spray in bedliners are not an issue for the fifth wheel hitches that fit the factory fifth wheel rail kits of the 2017 Ford F-350 like what you have. I attached a picture to this page that shows this Curt 5th wheel hitch # C16545-16017 installed in a truck bed that has a spray in bedliner just like yours.

  • Comparing The Curt Q24 And Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitches For 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    For your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty, either of the options you mentioned of the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 or the Reese Elite # RP30142 are outstanding. It really comes down to preferences and your specific requirements. The Curt hitch has a higher rated capacity, is a little heavier, has the 2 piece overlapping jaw, and has a height adjustment between 13 and 17 inches. The Curt hitch also has a lockable handle that is a nice feature, but the head can be removed as you stated. The...

    First and foremost, I want to sincerely thank you for your service. If your 2018 Ford F-450 features the factory rail kit in the truck bed, I highly recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16545-16017. This is a fantastic hitch that will mount directly to the factory pucks in your truck bed and provide you with a 24,000 pound towing weight capacity. This is an extremely well-built and durable unit that features a 2-jaw locking system for excellent jaw-to-king-pin contact and...

  • How Much Does Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs Weigh
    The Curt Q24 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16545-16017 is comprised of a couple of parts. The head and center section have a shipping weight of 111 pounds. The legs to fit the puck system in your 2017 Ford F-350 have a shipping weight of 56 pounds. You can subtract a few pounds from the 167 pound total to account for the packaging. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.

  • Difference Between Curt Q24 and Curt Q25 Fifth Wheel Hitches
    The only difference between the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 and Q25 # C16039 fifth wheel hitches is that the Q25 head is rated for 25,000 lbs while the head of the Q24 is rated for 24,000 lbs. However, the legs of both units are rated for 24,000 lbs which is why you see that both hitches have a towing capacity of 24,000 lbs (capacity is determined by the lowest overall rating). I've added links to video reviews of each hitch for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Towing Capacities Of 2017 Ford F-350
    Yes, your 2017 Ford F-350 Diesel has a GVWR of 9,900-11,500 lbs and a GAWR at the rear of 6340 lbs and 5250 lbs at the front. The GCWR is 28700 lbs, so with your 5th wheel trailer tow capacity between 20,600 and 21,500 lbs, you are well within your ratings to tow a Montana High Country 5th Wheel. For a 5th wheel hitch if you have the factory prep package, I recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Ford OEM Legs - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16545-16017. If you don't have...

  • Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch is Hard to Secure in 2016 Ford F-450 with Factory Prep Package
    Since no 2 trucks of the same year, make, and model will be identical it is possible to run into little issues like this. While I would not suggest using a sledge hammer, maybe a mallet instead, there are some adjustments that you can make to get the Q24 hitch # C16545-16017 to install easier in your 2016 Ford F-450. On the Curt hitch you would adjust the castle nut tighter or looser to get the right amount of tension and then lock the handles closed.

  • Best Truck and Hitch Recommendation for Towing a 18K Dry Weight 5th Wheel Trailer 41 Feet Long
    With a dry weight of 18,000 pounds you would be much better off with a 1-ton truck, it doesn't have to be a dually but it wouldn't hurt. A diesel is a good idea given how strong and reliable they are. And you will want a long bed truck to avoid having to get a slider hitch or a Sidewinder replacement pin box. If you go with a Ram then avoid the Ram Box option. Ford and Ram have 5th wheel prep packages and there are hitches that will fit directly in them. I would need to know what you...

  • Easy to Use Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F350 w/ Factory Tow/Prep Package
    Congratulations on the new truck! In my opinion, the best fifth wheel hitch we offer is the # BWRVK3305 25K Companion from B&W, which is also available in a 20K capacity as part # BWRVK3300. The hitch is pretty bulletproof, it mounts solidly in the bed pucks, and once properly adjusted will not rock or move. The inch-thick dual jaws keep a solid grip on the kingpin. Combine that with the polyurethane dampeners and you'll have a very comfortable ride with minimal chucking and bouncing....

  • Will Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Work with a TrailAir Air Ride Pin Box
    The Curt Q-series 5th wheel trailer hitches are cushioned which causes problems when used with Sidewinders and Revolution pin boxes because they move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches. The TrailAir pin boxes do not so they will fit. If you end up with a bouncy or stiff ride you will likely need to adjust the air pressure in the TrailAir pin box to accommodate the cushioning in the hitch.

    I called all three of our manufacturers about your 2017 Ford F-350 and a fifth wheel hitch fit. The frame on the 2017 has changed from the 2016 so an after market under bed installation kit is not available. When Ford installs the OEM fifth wheel puck system, the puck location is still in the same place in the truck bed.

  • Recommended Air Ride Pin Box for Smoother Ride to Replace Lippert 1621 HD
    You are correct that the Curt Q24 # C16545-16017 cannot be used with a Sidewinder or any pin box that rotates. This is because of the spherical axial bearing for the pivoting head. Anyway, the advantage of the Sidewinder isn't ride quality it's turning clearance, and since you have an 8 foot bed that's not the best route for you. For an air ride coupler I suggest the 5th Airborne Premium # 5AB-E1621-610. The 5th Airborne has an air spring and shock absorber. However, you should...

While there isn't any problem with the Q series, I recommend using the Curt A25 # C16036 for your 2020 Ford F-350 long bed with the pucks simply because it is the better option due to the jaws that interlock with each other and the fully articulating torsion head which helps to give you a smooth towing experience.

The primary difference between the two models is the head design. The A25 is essentially the upgraded Q24, as the head is simply made of stronger materials that allow for a much longer lifespan. The limited lifespan warranty on the A25 speaks to this quality. In terms of function both heads are fully articuating to allow for...
