I have a Curt Q5 5th wheel hitch on my truck. I bought the Curt after comparing others to this model. Quite honestly, all the others look like toys when compared to the Q5. It has a positive locking system that is virtually fool proof. Because of this it is a little more sensitive than the others in that you need to be 1/2" down when hitching and pretty high when unhitching. Neither of these is an issue once you have done it a couple of times.
After I had the hitch for a month or two I noticed a very small hole, maybe a 1/16" in diameter, in one of the welds. There was an appearance of rust weeping from the hole. I contacted Curt and sent their techs photos of the affected area. Upon receipt of the photos I was told that the hitch was safe but Curt would send a complete new hitch to me under warranty which they did. About 9 months after that I was greasing one of the three zerk fittings and when I tried to remove the grease gun from the fitting the fitting snapped off. Again Curt sent a new hitch. I have had no issues since then. Would I buy another? In a NY minute! My Cruiser is only about 10,000 pounds loaded after we pack and the Q5 is a 20k hitch but I wanted the safest and best.
