Always On Liberty Teams with Curt Manufacturing in Safety Campaign

AOL-Curt Safety Campaign

In 2014, we purchased our Heartland Cyclone 4100 fifth wheel toy hauler and Ram 3500 truck. However, we still had one more piece of the puzzle that would allow us to pull our load safely; a fifth wheel hitch. We read reviews and researched every fifth wheel hitch out there. Our focus kept pointing to Curt Manufacturing because of their commitment to safety. So few years later, when we were approached to be featured in Curt Manufacturing’s Tested. Proven. Safe. safety campaign commercial, we said YES!

Check out the commercial below!

Why Curt Manufacturing?

We chose the CURT Q24 5th wheel hitch for several reasons. It’s built for the quietest towing possible. Rated for trailers up to 24,000 pounds GTW and is compatible with a roller for use in a short-bed truck, the Q24 fifth wheel hitch is also available with a variety of other mounting options.

As stated on Curt Manufacturing campaign…

“CURT’s mission is to provide customers with safe, reliable products that empower them to enjoy more of what they love — whether it’s work, play or a combination of both. As such, this campaign’s objective is to highlight advancements in our testing technologies, product innovation and demonstrate its value to our customers…”


Last year, we installed and tested Curt’s R24 5th Wheel Roller in conjunction with our current Q24 hitch. It helped lift the hitch mechanism to allow greater clearance between the bottom of our fifth wheel cap area and our Ram 3500 truck bed rails. Though we had a long bed, we still used the feature that allowed for forward and rearward movement of 5th wheel hitch for added clearance.

Other features:

      • Constructed with solid, non-binding rods that lock the hitch into position
      • Designed to be a true rolling unit, not just a slider
      • Provides 12″ of travel while most competitive models only offer 10″
      • Uses wheels to bear the weight, instead of hollow rods like competition
      • Mounts to all industry-standard base rails
      • Tested for safety in accordance with SAE J2638
      • Protected by a highly durable carbide powder coat finish
      • Limited lifetime warranty (one-year finish, one-year parts)

Curt Hitch and Rail System - Dan

As noted on Curt Manufacturing website:

“A CURT 5th wheel trailer hitch is the ultimate combination of towing power and smooth driving, but a CURT 5th wheel mounted on a 5th wheel roller turns this gentle giant into the ultimate in mobility too. If you have a short-bed truck, it can be difficult towing a large RV trailer, especially one with an extended front overhang. When you are towing a 5th wheel with a 6-foot truck bed, give yourself a little breathing room with a CURT 5th wheel roller. Our 5th wheel rollers mount easily onto a set of 5th wheel rails or a gooseneck adapter already installed in the bed of your pickup truck.”

More testing…

We also tested their Rebellion XD Adjustable Cushion Hitch Ball Mount rated for 15,000 lbs. (Trailer ball sold separately) for smaller trailer loads used with our truck.

So, after testing and reviewing, you can imagine our excitement when they wanted to feature us in Curt’s Tested. Proven. Safe. campaign commercial. What better way to promote and exemplify products from a manufacturing company that truly cares about people and road safety.

What our future holds…

Though traded our fifth wheel and truck for our new Winnebago View 24D, we continue to work with Curt Manufacturing to promote safe towing and road safety. We are also working with them to provide hands-on experiences, recommendations and reviews. We believe their products and customer service are exemplary as well as their pronounced safety-minded mission. And, as RVers, we truly appreciate that; not only for our family but those who share the road with us. They truly ARE Tested. Proven. Safe.
