On the positive side, the workmanship of the Curt hitch is flawless, and it fits my vehicle perfectly. On the negative side, I wasn't entirely impressed with the installation kit. As a manufacturer, it's probably not possible to cover every possible contingency the end user might encounter during installation, so maybe it is a little unfair to expect no trouble. Nevertheless, I was a little bit surprised when the "square hole spacers" included in the Curt installation kit, those 1/4" x 1.5" x 2" stamped steel deals that receive the carriage bolts, and whose dimensions are calculated such that the spinning spacer will interfere with the vehicle's frame webs (the vertical part of the frame cross section) enabling the installer to tighten the flange nuts without having to get a wrench on the bolt, were 1/4" too short and, you guessed it, spun! I guess the idea is that it should be easier for the installer to use the carriage bolt / square hole spacers than it would be to get a wrench onto a standard hex bolt. Of course, the spacer would have to be long enough to prevent the carriage bolt from spinning. Oh well, I was able to jamb a piece of steel in the gap between the frame web and the spacer and eventually get all six flange nuts / bolts tightened. The powder coating, under load from the the serrated bases of the flange nuts, peeled immediately. I have a nice new Chevy Express van, and I'm sure that the first rust stains on my driveway will be from the now-bare metal around the six mounting points. Oh well, maybe I'm fooling myself. I guess I would rather have an installation that I never had to recheck, never had to re-torque the bolts, and never had to worry about my hitch falling loose and my trailer passing me up at the next 4-way stop. If a little rust shows up on my driveway three years from now, so be it. Good product, and I would buy it again. But for a couple of extra bucks for higher quality powder coating, and a little more attention to the installation kit, Curt would have a first class product. 131110

The product is great but the experience of ordering, customer service, shipping, and technical support were outstanding. The online ordering was easy and worked well. The shipping was spot on and everything arrived in a box that was incredible. I was worried that the hitch would be shipped loose on end up banged around but the box was perfect. I also found that the videos online were very helpful. I was worried that the wiring would be difficult but the video made the installation a snap. In the future, if we find a bigger trailer, I will be ordering a brake controller and I will surely be ordering it from etrailer. Keep up the good work and thanks for making this installation work out so well. 84131

I ordered this for my ’08 Express 3500 Van that came from Chevrolet with an OEM heavy duty hitch receiver, option Z82. The van is rated to tow 10,000 lbs but the receiver Chevy supplied is rated for 4000 lbs, 10,000 with weight distribution. 4000 lbs? That’s WEAK! So I ordered this Curt hitch receiver to replace it. I removed the Chevy receiver and had this one on in about 20 minutes. It fit perfectly using the existing holes in the frame. It sits about a half inch higher than the Chevy receiver but there are no clearance issues. I also ordered the Pollak GM Replacement 7-pole socket, mounting bracket and long no-drill bracket to complete the installation. Shipping was FAST! 63441

The product was made so much better than I was expecting. Powder coating is terrific. All the parts I ordered came correctly and well packaged. Free shipping and was delivered in New England from the South in a few days. Etrailer supplied tracking numbers etc to follow the shipment. After opening the package and making sure all the parts ordered were correct and everything was there I placed all the parts out. Then put the hitch in place put one bolt in to hold....before I knew it within 30 mins the whole hitch, ball and wiring harness was installed. The step by step instructions made it so easy. 78039

I finally had a chance to install this hitch on my 2002 Chevy 3500 Express Van. It was on a Sunday afternoon and I had to do it by myself. It could not have been easier!! I blocked up the hitch on 2) 6x6 timbers and then lifted one side up at a time. The mounting holes lined up perfectly and the bolts were long enough for me to get one started, on each side, one handed. So much better than other hitches I have installed. I would recommend to everyone. Thank you for a well made and easy to install product. Tim 132502

Great fit and solid unit. Replaced an existing hitch that ws poorly made. Easy install and looks good on the van. Does not extend beyond the back of the bumper so no more painful shin hits. Use the shipping box to slide the hitch under the van to avoid scratching the paint on the hitch and raise it to make the install a one person job. Could have bought the lighter duty hitch from the same company due only pulling a small trailer, but over rating never hurts except for the additional weight. 201589

My Chevy Express is a 3500 series so I needed a Class IV hitch to tow heavier loads. This hitch weighs just under 50 lbs and was almost too easy to install. Save yourself the money and install this yourself. Curt is known for manufacturing solid well built hitches. You can't go wrong with this hitch! 215440

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Recommended Hitch, Brake Controller and Towing Accessories for 2006 Chevy Express Van

The hitch capacity could be higher than the actual capacity of the vehicle itself, please check the owners manual for the stated capacity of the vehicle.

Basically, you never know what you might need to tow so it is better to have the capacity and not need it than to need it and not have it! Since you plan on doing some towing I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2216. It comes with a ball mount with a 1 inch rise or 2 inch drop, a 2 inch ball...

  • Can 2007 Chevrolet Express Van 2500 Tow a 35 FT Yukon Trailer
  • From the information that I was able to obtain for a 35 ft Fleetwood Wilderness Yukon Travel Trailer, this trailer should weigh right around 6,000 lbs. A 2007 Chevrolet Express Van 2500 will have a capacity between 6,100 lbs and 10,000 lbs, depending on model and options, so you'll want to check your owner's manual for your specific van's towing capacity. As long as the trailer's weight does not exceed the capacity of your van you should have no problems towing the trailer. If the trailer's...

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch 14090 Fit Around a Full Size Spare Tire on a 2000 GMC Savana 1500
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt, the manufacturer, about whether or not the Hitch, # 14090, will fit around the spare on your 2000 GMC Savana 1500. He indicated that it will fit. To be sure, I had him give me the hitch measurements. The width between the two brackets is about 37 inches. As long as the diameter of your tire is less than that 37 inches, it will fit. I have attached the directions for this hitch below. I have included a video of a similar hitch and a similar vehicle...

This is a great hitch with a large capacity that should work well for you. Check out the install video I attached to see how it installs. For trailer wiring you will want the part # 118392.
