Difference Between Curt A20 and Q20 5th Wheel Hitches


2018 F-350 long bed without the factory prep. Looking at the USA-made Curt hitches A20 and Q20. I know I need install kit C16428-204. But what makes one of these hitches the better choice than the other?


Expert Reply:

You are correct that you will use the Curt installation kit # C16428-204 in your 2018 Ford F-350 to install either the Curt A20 5th wheel hitch # C16140 or the Q20 model # C16130. Both of these USA-made hitches share a 20,000-lb tow rating but they differ in that the A-Series is an improved version with better ride-quality.

Keep in mind, the Q-Series and A-Series are not compatible with sidewinders, so you'd instead want something like the Curt E-series, such as Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115 with wedge # 30861.
