What Is The Difference Between The Curt A20 And Q20 5th Wheel Hitches For A 2022 GMC Sierra 3500?  


I am looking at getting a Curt 20k 5th wheel hitch for my 2022 GMC Sierra 3500 with a long bed and the factory puck set up. I saw that you have the Q20 and the A20 hitches available, but which one should I go with? Is one better than the other?


Expert Reply:

Though both the Curt A20 # C84FR and Q20 # C57FR that are designed to fit your 2022 GMC Sierra 3500 long bed with the factory pucks are rated for the same weight capacities (20k towing and 5k vertical load), there are a few key differences between them that I have listed below. Both will also use the same leg system, so I will only be referring to the heads.

Curt A20 # C84FR:
Interlocking 2-jaw system
Fully articulating torsion head for controlled coupling and a stable, quiet ride
2 Built-in zerk fittings
2-Pin head removal

Curt Q20 # C57FR:
2-Jaw locking system
3 Lube points with easy-to-access grease fittings
2-Pin head removal
Unique spherical axial bearing allows easy pivoting

In conclusion, I prefer the A20 # C84FR. I find the handle that operates the jaws easier to use and prefer the interlocking jaws over the more standard jaws on the Q20. I included a picture of what I mean.
