Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Dodge Caravan

Today on this 2005 Dodge Caravan, we're going to be installing Curt Hitch part number 12362. Before we get started with the installation, we're going to go ahead and show you a couple of final installed dimensions which will help make choosing your hitch accessories a little bit easier. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is going to measure 12 inches, and from the center of the pinhole to clear the rear edge of the bumper is going to measure right at 2 1/2 inches. And now I'll go ahead and move on to installation. Ok, we're up underneath the vehicle here and we're going to go ahead and point out the mounting holes we're going to be using to attach the hitch to the vehicle. Starting over here on the drivers side, you can see we've got two existing bolts here.

We will be removing the rearmost one and using that weld nut as the first attaching point. If you follow forward, there's an oblong hole here that will be our second and middle attaching point. And if you follow even further up, you could see we've got an existing round hole right here, and that will be our third and final attaching point. And thats' going to be the same one with the passenger side of the vehicle as well. So the first thing we're going to do is go ahead and remove the rearmost bolts on both sides of the vehicle.

With that bolt removed, we'll go ahead and fish wire the carriage bolt and block assemblies into the frame for the middle and forward most attaching points. At each one of these attaching point, we'll be using this carriage block and carriage bolt. And we'll also be using the provided bolt leader to fish wire inside the frame. And what we'll be doing is taking the threaded end of the bolt leader and we'll fish it through out through the end of the frame. So I'm going to start with the forward most hole.

We'll next go and take the block and slide it on the bolt leader followed by the carriage bolt and we'll wrap the threads of the bolt leader around the threads of the carriage bolt inside the frame and down into place. We'll go ahead and repeat that for the middle attaching point. Ok, go ahead and repeat that for the passenger side of the vehicle, and then we'll go ahead and put the hitch up into place. We're going to fasten the hitch to the carriage bolt using the flange hex nuts. And then into the weld nuts, we're going to be using the new 12mm bolt along with the conical tooth washers that are provided with the installation kit.

And then again go ahead and repeat that for the passenger side and then we'll go ahead and start tightening our bolts up. And now that we've got all the bolts in place, we just want to go through now and torque each one of the bolts down. We want to verify with the directions the specific torque rating for each of the bolts. And then with all the bolts torqued down, the installation is complete. That will conclude the installation of Curt Hitch part number 12362 on a 2005 Dodge Caravan.

Chrysler Town&Country LX (no stow and go seats). The shipment was fast! No issues with the delivery as well. The installation process was easy (a second pair of hands is really needed). I'm going to use the bar to carry bicycle rack and I was worried if there is enough space for bicycles. It turned to be more than enough - more than 10 cm from the bike's handles to the rear glass. I have Swagman XTC-2 bike rack. That's my second purchase from e-trailer. I was happy the first time and I'm happy again. Regards, Sergey. 14993

I found the link for the custom hitch quickly, order process was easy (good payments options, too!), and got the product the same week. There were specific instructions online (video) and included with the product. It installed easily, and fit perfect; I'm very pleased with the entire experience. 17359

  • Troubleshooting Low Ball Mount Ground Clearance on a 2003 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The Curt Class II Trailer Hitch, part # C12362, is the correct trailer hitch for your 2003 Chrysler Town and Country and the ball mount, part # C45521, is the recommended ball mount for that hitch. It is perfectly safe to turn the ball mount upside down to gain more ground clearance. This is called using the ball mount in the rise position. It is recommended for your vehicle to use this ball mount in the rise position since the trailer hitch is low to the ground. I do not recommend...
