Comparing The Curt Q24 And Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitches For a 2019 Ford F-350


I just got a 2016 F-350 and have been looking at the Q24 and Elite but can't decide. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

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 the truck bed.

Furthermore, the puck system in your truck bed is made by Reese and was designed for the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch so the fit would likely be better as well. I have attached a photo with a better explanation of the wraparound jaw design for you as well.
