I do have an option for you but the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16530-16021 cannot be used with a rotating pin box like the Lippert Turning Point because of the spherical axial bearing in the head. However, the Curt OEM 5th Wheel Hitch Legs for Ram Towing Prep Package part # C16021 that the above hitch uses is compatible with the Head Unit for Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16540 which is compatible with rotating pin boxes like the Lippert Turning Point. Therefore, all you will need to do is change out the head.

The correct wedge for this head is the Sidewinder Wedge for Curt A Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # C16992. As the title states this wedge is designed for the Reese Sidewinder but so long as the Lippert Turning Point has the same center bolt design it should work as well. I spoke with Curt to confirm this and they seem to think it would work just fine as well.
