Review of the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Q20 fifth wheel trailer hitch for Nissan Titan XD towing prep package. That's going to be part number C16530-16026. So here's what our hitch is going to look like once we have it installed. Now the legs are going to slide directly into our Titan's under bed platform for the prep package. We're just going to have these quarter turn levers. They're adjustable, so we can get the height right, so there's no slop, or play in them.And then our hitch is going to mount to the legs using these four bolts, two on each side.

And this is going to let us utilize that under bed kit, so we can easily hook up to our fifth wheel trailer, and safety, and securely get down the road. Now one thing that's going to set this fifth wheel apart from others, it's going to have a two piece jaw, so it's going to make a full 360 degree contact around the king pin, unlike a slide-bar style jaws, this is going to make that full contact, and reduce a lot of the rattling noise when we're going down the road.On the back of the handle, Curt made it pretty easy for us to just take a quick glance and see if we're hooked up properly. We're going to have a color coding to let us know if we're in the couple mode, or if it's uncoupled, or if we're ready to go. We're going to have this tethered safety pin, so we can pull the pin out, lift the latch up, and we're able to pull the jaws open, so we can get ready to couple to our trailer.And you can see on the indicator, it's yellow, letting us know that we're ready to couple. Here I got a plastic king pin to simulate our trailer.

So whenever we're backing up, it's going to hit the back of the jaws, which is going to apply pressure, and it's going to lock them in place. And you can see there's really not a whole lot of movement, either back and forth, or side to side, because those jaws are wrapping all the way around the king pin.The head is going to be fully reticulating, so you'll be able to side to side, as well as front to back. That way we're going to have a nice, comfortable ride going down the road. Since the head is going to pivot the way it does, it has this nice wide funnel, it's going to make it a lot easier hooking up, even on uneven ground. Now the handle is going to be lockable, we'll just put down that pin.

We can lock it using a padlock to make sure our trailer's going to be secure. Now the locks are going to be sold separately.But the handle itself, you can see, is going to be a very smooth operating short drill handle, to make it very easy to operate when we're outside of the bed. Now one thing I really like about this one, is we can accurately just remove this pin and clip from each side, we can remove the head assembly from the center section, making it a lot lighter and easier to take out of our truck bed.Now, our hitch is going to have four height adjustments. We're going to make them right along the inside here. The way we bolt it to the legs, we're going to have several different holes.

We're going to be able to adjust it from 13 all the way up to 17 inches, so we can match up to our trailer, to make sure we have adequate clearance. Now our hitch does have built in grease zerks, so it's going to make it real easy to maintain our hitch, make sure everything's moving properly.Now it's also going to come with a lube plate, which is going to make hooking up to our trailer a lot smoother, and easier. Now our hitch is going to have a 20,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. Along with a 5,000 pound vertical load limit. Now with those numbers in mind, you always want to double check your truck's owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended towing weight.Our fifth wheel is designed to work with Nissan Titan XD towing prep package, because the legs are just going to drop in. However, keep in mind, that it is not designed to work with rotating pin boxes. So if you're looking for a way to tow your fifth wheel trailer with you Nissan Titan XD, our Curt hitch is going to be a great option, because the legs are going to drop right into your factory prep package, and hitch head is going to have plenty of weight, and have that nice cushion, so when we go down the road, we can be nice and comfortable.That'll finish up your look at the Curt Q20 fifth wheel trailer hitch for Nissan Titan XD towing prep package, part number C16530-16026.
