I received my Curt Trailer hitch for the sole purpose of mounting into the rear of my wife's 2012 Toyota Corolla SE in order to mount the Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack that we ordered June 2013 and had been using on the rear of truck. To save fuel to and from our biking destinations we order the Curt Class I hitch for her Toyota. It arrived on the estimated date of delivery. Immediately removed it from the cardboard box it was and with the included bolts and washers I installed in literally five minutes time. My wife helped me hold it place while I hand-threaded the bolts into place. With a 19mm, 3/8" drive socket and a 9" extension (needed to reach between the tailpipe and the frame up to the bolts on the passenger side...driver's side done with just the socket). I torqued it to the specified 85 foot pounds of torque with a 3/8" torque wrench and I was done. The hitch looked great by itself, and mounting the rack into the hitch was a cinch and looked great also. On a side note...the Thule Double Rack Bike Rack also purchased earlier from Etrailer when folded up, does not interfere with view of the brake and taillights. As a repeat customer, I was also given Express Customer Service, and my order was literally on it way out for delivery within two hours of placing my order. has been awesome to work with, and they have become my go-to source for all things trailer-related. Thank you :) 124022

Super easy to install, just four screws and ready. I already use for my bike rack and is ideal for on and off. I highly recommend. 112039

I ordered this hitch for my 2014 Corolla for use with my Swagman XC bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of this hitch, it is much heavier duty than I expected. It bolted up easily with the supplied hardware and looks great. Hardly noticeable. The bike rack fits perfectly. Now I am ready to hit the trails. 143553

The entire process couldn't have been easier! Placed my order on Wednesday and got an email that the billing address hadn't been changed on my card yet ( I just bought a farm and had forgotten to change that one) talked to them girls etrailer Thursday morning, correcting my error, and my order was in my hands on Friday. A++++ service 144505

The hitch appears well made and was super easy to install. 86 foot pounds of torque is required to tighten the 4 bolts into the car frame so Popeye-sized muscle is required. The wiring T-connecter was also easy to install. Make sure you order the correct hitch (I goofed and accidentally ordered a hitch for a Scion). That was a $50 mistake in return UPS fees. I still have not received reimbursement for the returned hitch. Their order shipping was fast. Come on eTrailer, credit my return! 151826

Product arrived on time, with excellent packing. Fit perfectly. The longest part of the installation was finding my 19mm socket which I had left where I would always remember where it was, but once I found it I installed the hitch in about 5 minutes. I am using it to put a bike rack on which I haul my moms wheelchair on. 145784

This one, I installed it in 4 1/2 minutes. The four way electric wiring clipped into the tail lights in two minutes. I spent about thirty minutes exposing the wire access. This was the easiest install yet. I have installed three Curt trailer hitches so far. All of them fit perfectly. 140848

The Curt trailer hitch that I orderd arrived on time and I had no problem installing it on my 2006 Toyota Corolla and it looks just as pictured on their web site. 154125

Easy to install if you have 4 hands. Finish on it seems solid. I have not used It yet, but for light duty trailer use it should work fine. 150950

  • Does Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 Include Ball Mount, Pin and Clip
  • You are correct that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 includes a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. Also the Hidden Hitch receiver # 60345 for your 2014 Toyota Corolla includes these same components. The Curt hitch # C11265 includes the pin and clip, but not the ball mount. Please note that the availability of hitches for any given vehicle does not necessarily mean that vehicle can tow a trailer. I was not able to verify any tow rating for your Corolla. Your owners...

  • Receiver Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota Corolla LE
  • You are correct, the Curt, Draw-Tite, and Hidden Hitch receiver hitches all look very similar and also offer the same weight capacities. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are actually sister companies so their hitches are pretty close to identical. The biggest difference between the three brands of receiver hitches for your 2008 Toyota Corolla is the fact that the Curt, # C11265, requires the use of stabilizing straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads like bike racks, cargo carriers and so...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Corolla S
  • I checked with Curt and the Curt Hitch part # C11265 that you referenced is confirmed to fit all model 2012 Toyota Corollas so it would work on your S model. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Wiring Harness part # 55542, ball mount # C45521, 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256, 2 inch ball part # 19258.

  • For your 2015 Toyota Corolla the Curt Hitch part # C11265 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle so I would recommend it for you. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56194. For a ball mount you would want part # C45521, 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256, 2 inch ball # 19258.
