Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Toyota Sienna - Curt

Today on our 2013 Toyota Sienna, well be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C13105. Now here is what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now well go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch, such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is approximately 6 inches. From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground is approximately 11 inches. Now lets go ahead and install our hitch.

Now before we begin, were going to need to remove this lower appearance panel that covers the rear of the vehicle. Now in order to remove the lower appearance panel, theres multiple fasteners that will need to be removed. Now well go ahead and set our appearance panel aside for reinstallation later. Now lets go ahead and point out our mounting locations. Well begin over here on the driver side. Well be using the existing weld nut underneath this cover.

This one and this one. Just simply use our razor knife to trim out the cover. Now that we have our attachment points uncovered over here on the driver side, to be exactly the same over on the passenger side. Now were going to go ahead and take our appearance panel and were going to do some trimming on it first in order for it to fit around our hitch. Well have mark out some areas. Then well be removing this section right in here.

In order to remove our section, were just going to use our razor knife, cut along the plastic. After we cut our openings for the hitch arms, well lay the panel on top of the hitch. Now the hardware that well be using for all six mounting locations is the same. Its the 12mm hex bolt and a inch conical tooth washer. We want to make sure that when installed, the teeth on the washer are facing towards the hitch.

Now its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you raise the hitch up into position. Well go ahead and install one bolt on each side loosely. Then well reinstall the fasteners for the panel. Then when all the fasteners are reinstalled, well loosely install the rest of our hitch hardware. Well make sure the hitch is centered on the vehicle and then well tighten it down. Then well torque down all of our bolts to the manufacturer specification. Now that our hardware has been torqued down, that will complete our installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C13105, on our 2013 Toyota Sienna. .

2013 Chevy Suburban


Extremely fast delivery, excellent customer service and easy install. We traded our Suburban in for a 2013 Sienna. We knew we'd needed a hitch mount cargo hauler after loosing all our suburban cargo area and didn't want to go with a roof mount luggage carrier to decrease our mpg. We swapped vehicles one week before leaving on a two week vacation and needed the hitch fast. etrailer.com got it to me quick and install was super quick and easy. We are now on vacation and I realized that I need the suspension airlift system to compensate for being loaded down. I ordered it yesterday. Extremely happy with the purchase. 90829

2005 Toyota Sienna XLE


Just like the wiring kit I purchased from ETrailer.com, the video instructions were great and the part fit perfectly to my van. I was able to haul alot of stuff from MD to NC and back with no problems. Be prepared to do some prep work if you've never had a hitch attached to your van. I have a 2005 Sienna XLE which already has the threaded holes in the frame for the hitch to attach to. I spent more time (several hours) cleaning out the 8 years of dirt, grime, and rust from the threads in the frame than actually installing the hitch. I recommend making sure the bolts run all the way up through the holes before trying to install the hitch. Also, although the hitch is attached as close as possible to the van, you must be careful going over steep driveway entrances or taller speedbumps as I have bottomed out a couple of times since installing the hitch, even without the trailer attached. 108253

We have sent an email to William letting him know about your question. In the meantime, I have added a link to the wiring harness he installed. On that page are links to several videos of this harness being installed on different model year Siennas that you may find helpful.

There were no issues hooking up the wiring. Just some partial disassembly of interior panels to hide the wiring behind and removal and replacement of exterior taillight covers. I took out the rear interior panel but only loosened the side interior panels and worked the wires in behind everything. Basically only needed a screwdriver do do those parts and then found space in the jack compartment to store it all. The wiring kit I bought from etrailer just plugged right into the existing taillight system in the van. See their instructions and video for installation of the wiring harness.

2012 Toyota Sienna LE


Product is well built and looks good. Installation was easy (mostly due to etrailer's great videos). I was able to do the install alone. By myself it took about 1.5 hours. If I had a helper the 40 min suggested time would have been about right. The 2012 AWD LE sienna undercarriage plastic is slightly different than shown in the video and directions and requires an additional cut to make the hitch fit correctly, but again not a big deal (I included a pic of the added cut). 91877

2006 Toyota Sienna


Hitch Installation 2006 Toyota Sienna How I Did It: I had no plastic bottom splash cover on this van to work around. The van was not jacked up.. I simply hooked the passenger side of the hitch over the exhaust pipe (to support the hitch). Using a block of wood on a jack I raised the (center receiver) of the hitch to draw the driver side up into the mounting position. A 8-in heavy shank Phillips screwdriver and a tapered piece of wood helped to 'align' the (3) holes, and loosely set the driver side (bolts with washers), into place. Moving to the passenger side.. I used a 2nd jack (with a piece of 2x4x6 (on the jack) placed between the body and exhaust to rise the hitch up and away form the tail pipe, and into mounting position. Alternating between center jack supporting the "receiver", and passenger side jack (raising the right Hitch side), I kept the hitch level as the hitch was snugged into mounting position. Again, using the tapered wood and screwdriver as an alinement set, I screwed in 2 of the 3 right side bolts. The third bolt, refused to 'catch' and failed to screw into place even though alinement appeared good, and the bold had been tested as screwing into the hole cleanly, prior to raising the hitch.... My solution to this was to use a 'bolt & nut of the proper size that I had on hand', identical to the supplied bolts but mine happened to be shorter, but with good threads. I placed a nut on this bolt. I ground a leading cone shape taper (grinding about 4-threads away to make the taper), on the end of this new "alignment bolt". I oiled the treads, and then removed the nut to 'self-clean' the threads out to it's new end taper. I did not cut a thread-cutting chip-relief 'notch' in this bolt end, as I knew the van threads were good as pretested. Using this modified bolt I was able to now 'catch' the van hole's lead-thread, and cinch-up this modified aligning bold tightly. Or,... if you don't have an extra nut and bolt laying around, you can use one of the supplied hitch bolts, a grinder and a small file to touch-up the lead thread. There is plenty of length on a new Hitch bolt to work with. (Be sure you have cleaned & pretested all 6 of the Van's bolt-hole threads with the supplied bolts prior to your install efforts!) I also found it handy to have another small block of 2x4 to pry the exhaust pipe out of the way of your hand/tools, when using the socket set on the right side bolt holes. With my modified bolt tight and in place, I then tightened the 2 installed right-side bolts.. remove the 'modifier aligning bold' and installed the 3-rd and final hitch bolt with it's washer. Time To Tighten All the Bolts Down: A point about torque on this Hitch/bolt install. Though the instructions say to use a torque wrench, it seemed rare for anyone in comments/Product Review, to actually mention "using" a torque wrench with their installs. Since the bolts are to be tightened to almost 80ft/lb this is ALLOT of force.. and even with the torque wrench it seems you will break the bolts, until you hear the wrench's refreshing STOP 'click'. For those just 'guessing' as they use a beaker bar, or just grunting the bolts into place, I imagine allot of trailers are being pulled at 60mph+, with essentially loose bolts, or at the least, under-tightened/under torqued hitch bolts. Hmm, overloaded trailer, over speed pulling, and under tightened bolts.... Sounds like fun! Seriously, try very hard to get your hands on a proper torque wrench and be surprised at the amount of oomph it takes to properly tighten these bolts. Anyway, the Hitch? Great bumper-cover hugging design. Good paint-job and pretty "gold colored" bolt and washer set. The instructions are clear. Plastic Problems: Some who have it installed, have goofed and cut the wrong side for the rear plastic underside splash panel. Just mark BOTH sides of the same lift side, so you don't get confused, or cut it, installed, and in place, as some have done with a utility-knife or tin snips. (Consider also a soldering-iron tip and steady hand). Matching It All Together: I also found that the CURT ball (one with a 2-in body rise) brought my ball-mount (it's a 1-in rise) and ball combo up to an acceptable (3-in rise), and level, to within 1/2~3/4-in connected to the trailer. Final Thought: I'm all for advertizing but not all over the van, so I pulled the stick-on labels off the hitch. It looks cleaner for me. Sorry eTrailer! If someone asks, I'll tell e'm I got it from you. :-) The takeaway? This is a good company to buy from... Thanks! 132062

2011 Toyota Sienna


2012 Sienna LE FWD. Watch the 2011 installation video before you start. This 13105 hitch tucks in even prettier than I expected, and now my brother is jealous. Note I made the cutout in the underbody panel narrower, starting 1.75 inches from the hole (see photo), for a closer fit, and there is still room for torque wrench. I also cut a slit out to the front edge, so I could slip it on with the hitch in place, and for better access to my air hoses inside the left fender. I decided to add Airlift after reading reviews, since on trips I carry a maximum load. Installed single-handed, raised on jack stands. 29277


Comments

Hi Mike,I was ready to purchase a 2014 Sienna until I found out Toyota would not put a hitch on this vehicle because of low ground clearance. I will be carrying heavy loads and have heard you bottom out on the hitch when going into parking lots etc. At times when the van is fully loaded I will also have a travel trailer attached which adds 400 lbs. to the tongue weight. Even with this hitch it may not be the right van for my needs. Do you have experience that can help me?Can you tell me what type of Airlift assist you put on and if you ever have trouble bottoming out on your hitch.How does the Airlift affect the ride both when heavily loaded and empty?Thank you for your time and have a great Labor Day weekend.

2004 Toyota Sienna


After I ordered it, I was somewhat worried about the possibility I may have ordered the wrong year. This was because the web based ordering process was slightly cumbersome and did not make it clear in the cart that the product I placed there was definitely for a 2004 Toyota Sienna. However, it arrived the day after I ordered it! Prior reviews are correct that the packing was lacking as the hitch is simply in a cardboard box (with the accessory items taped to the bar). So the paint was scrapped off in a couple small places where the box had been slightly torn. In one spot, there was already rust appearing where the paint had been scraped. But overall, the hitch looked great. Instructions in the box were somewhat lacking, but the etrailer installation videos were spot on and made the process very simple. I had some trouble cleaning the nut holes under the van and wish I had been given one extra bolt. I had to cut a groove in one of the bolts to create a self-tapping bolt because the threads in the nut became fouled. (I did not have a tapping tool to fit the thread--if you do, then I strongly recommend you clean out the nuts with your tapping tool after you clean it with WD-40 and a wire brush.) My trouble would probably only happen 1 in 10,000 times. Hitch fit perfectly on my Sienna. The harness installation was as quick and easy as the video demonstrated. Thank you etrailer for your excellent video installation demos! They made all the difference and made the process mostly enjoyable. The final product looks fantastic on the van. I particulalry like the curve of the bar fitting underneath the bumper--perfect. Well worth the price. I bought it from etrailer and installed it myself at half the price the Toyota dealer wanted for just the part! I never found out how much they wanted for installation. Thank you etrailer. 51732

I took my 2011 Sienna to Toyota dealership and they wanted $725.00 which I thought was unreasonable.

Toyota Sienna


This is the second hitch and wiring harness Ive bought from etrailer and I will likely be buying from them again. I had a local hitch company install the last hitch and harness but this time I did it myself. The Curt C13105 class III hitch I bought this time was pretty easy to install on my new Toyota Sienna even if it was much heavier and I didnt have any help. The included written instructions for both the hitch and the Curt C56106 vehicle specific harness seemed to be meant for a pro but installation videos on the etrailer and Curt websites filled in the gaps. When installing on a Sienna, be sure to install the wiring harness before you reattach the trim panel under the rear of vehicle and fully tighten the hitch bolts. It is not necessary to cut a slot in the underbody trim panel nearly as large as the one shown in the instructions. I recommend cutting out only the rib section shown in the instructions - perhaps only 1/2 inch wide and 11 inches long and easily cut and enlarged if necessary with a standard utility knife. The trim panel is easily pushed aside when attaching and torqueing the bolts though the slot you cut. This was a very satisfying project as I know I did a much better job than a professional would have taken the time to do. I spent much longer on the installation than the instructions said it should take but I was especially careful and meticulous. I was able to route the wiring harness from the rear of the Sienna to the battery in the engine compartment by raising only the back of the Sienna on jack stands - be sure to use chocks on the front and back of both front wheels for safety. 130317

Etrailer was excellent in answering my presales questions. The video was great in overviewing the install process. I ordered 2:30pm CDT on a Monday and received the product on Tue afternoon - now that is fast delivery - granted we lived closer to the distribution center within 250 miles. The installation was like painting. Takes 80% to do the prep work of cleaning the holes and spraying it down with lubricant (like WD40 or rust penetrating oil). The actual install of the hitch was only 20 minutes while it took nearly 45 minutes to clean the holes out. I recommend anti-seize lubricant on the bolts as well. This will also aide in lubricating the bolt for easier tightening. Curt makes the highest ground clearance hitches. I'm very pleased with the overall quality and install process. It looks great on my Sienna! One tow with renting a Uhaul trailer vs driving their gas-guzzling truck will have paid for this hitch, wiring harness, and ball hitch. Please remember to do your research on the Sienna for proper towing capacity. Toyota appears to have made 2008+ model optional in towing prep package. Without towing prep, your tow may be only limited to 1200 lbs. Lucky with for me, the Sienna had towing prep that provides up to 3500 lbs. I will look to add an automatic transmission cooler still in the future. 3500 lbs will cover many of my usage scenarios. Good luck! 101253

2012 Toyota Sienna


I purchased this for my 2012 Toyota Sienna. Instructions from etrailer.com were very good and the product arrived in a couple of days. I did not loosen the exhaust system and just worked around it (make sure the tailpipe is cool). Also, I would recommend chocking the wheels for safety. The clearance was definitely low at the back and sometimes challenging, especially when trying to read the torque wrench. I used wood blocks to support one side of the hitch while I bolted the other in place. I finished in about 2 hours and the hitch looks great and is solidly in place. I tested it with a bike rack and drove it for about 60 miles with no rattling or loosening of the rack. 126891

2010 Toyota Sienna


True bolt on for a 2010 Toyota Sienna. The only issue I encountered was that the driver side threading was really dirty and needed to be blasted with some PB blaster and wire brush cleaned. But that doesn't really have to do with the hitch itself. The passenger side must have been cleaner because the exhaust covered up that side a little bit. Once everything was cleaned, the bolts were torqued to 79 lb/ft and I was good to go. Thanks! 90793

2006 Toyota Sienna


This installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C13105 was on a 2006 Toyota Sienna. The fit was perfect. It was not necessary to remove the exhaust hangar to access the passenger-side bolts - I was able to hold the exhaust pipe aside with a block of wood, and use normal socket wrenches w/ extenders. I used a small scissor jack under the receiver to raise it into position, with blocks under both ends to stabilize it. Had this been a new vehicle, the job would have taken about 20 minutes, working alone, no jacks or lift. Since this was a 6-year old vehicle in NJ with salted roads, it took another hour and a half to clean the rusted threads in the weld nuts. A well-worn plumber's wire brush intended to clean copper fittings before soldering started the job, followed by a lot of WD-40 and back-and-forth with a socket wrench on a 12-1.25 bolt. The unit just clears the bottom of the bumper trim, so it preserves as much ground clearance as possible, given the design of the Sienna. About delivery - ordered after 9pm on Monday, delivered before noon on Friday. The order was complete (wiring harness, etc.) and in perfect shape. 31597

2011 Toyota Sienna


I was very pleased with the Curt Hitch. I did not remove the panel under the car. I cut the opening with a good sharp uitility knife with the panel in place. It was easy to measure. I backed up on two car lifts for extra space. The hitch fit the holes perfectly. I placed the hitch on a 4 wheel dolly, shimmed each side until the hitch was lined up and put the bolts in with a long extension. I did this alone. I used the Curt wiring harness. I discovered it is just the opposite from the Toyota harness in that the extra wiring goes to the left side rather than the right side as the video suggests. I am using the hitch to carry a Rally cargo carrier with a ramp to carry my electric scooter. I had to add an extension to my hitch so the assembly that holds up the ramp would not hit the tail light on the passenger side when the cargo carrier is in the upright position. I added a second platform to the cargo carrier and short ramp and the a board to the bumper of the Sienna 2011. I can go up the ramp and into the back of the Sienna so that the scooter can be transported completely inside the car if I choose. 53897

The hardest part of the job was the small amount of ground clearance the Sienna has without jacking it up. If you have drive up ramps to give yourself more room, they are very helpful. Completely removing the underbody panel is not required and it is easier to install the hitch if you only remove enough fasteners to allow the half of the panel on the driver's side to hang free. This allows extra space between the fuel tank and the hole you need to cut through the cover (so you don't puncture the fuel tank with a rotary bit). It provides room to easily thread in the bolts. It also means you don't have to mess with both the panel and the hitch flopping around when lifting the hitch into place. Cutting the hole in the plastic is super easy. Here's how I did it. I cut a cardboard template (2.75" x 12.5") out of the shipping box and held it up to the underbody panel where the diagram showed. I marked the outline with a permanent marker and then used a utility knife to cut the hole. After that, it was simply a matter of getting the hitch in place and bolting it down. 112000

2014 Toyota Sienna


If you need a hitch, you NEED etrailer ! I ordered my second hitch from them for my 2014 Toyota Sienna and just as promised the price was a great deal, all parts were right, and the instructions were very well written ! I also installed the "Tee" wiring that fit like a glove! I use my hitch to tow a small utility trailer, a 2 place jet ski trailer, and a small camper so we will use it a lot! I would suggest having 2 people or a floor jack covered with a towel (so as to not scratch the hitch) to hold the hitch up when starting the mounting bolts! I have not taken any pictures yet but plan to when I can and will send them in. Thanks etrailer.com for awesome customer support both by email and over the phone!!! 121699

2014 Toyota Sienna


Shipped extremely fast after ordering. Delivered quickly by UPS. The box was very well stapled together. The box looked like UPS gave it the bottom of the truck treatment but the hitch was perfect condition and all parts included. I installed it myself on a 2014 Toyota Sienna minivan using the included instructions and watching the videos on the site. The installations was identical to the video on the site. I highly recommend using two people to hold the hitch or a jack stand and a floor jack. I did not have those and used a stack of 2x4's to get the hitch balanced in place. I used the torque wrench to get the bolts tightened to instructions. The video install of the identical vehicle is why I purchased from etrailer. There is a little over 9 inches of clearance from the bottom of the hitch opening. I will be using a 5 bike rack (Draft Master) this summer on vacation with this hitch. Another tip is to wash the under body before working on it as to lessen the dirt around the working area. 212066

2006 Toyota Sienna


Installed with myself and 4 jack stands -- 2 to hold the rear end up, 2 to hold the hitch up -- in about an hour and a half (I had to find the lifting point on my Sienna first). There was some grunting to get the hitch in place. If you have a friend and know where the lifting point is you could probably get it done in 45 minutes or less. If you have a car lift and a friend it would take maybe 15 or 20 minutes. The hitch looks as expected from the photos, and the video was a great help. I was worried about bottoming out, but haven't yet (I live near Chicago, so there aren't a lot of uneven surfaces around). My uncle who lives in Denver, CO has a 2006 sienna and bottomed out all the time before he had airbags installed. This may not be as big of an issue on the newer generation. Overall good hitch. I was considering the one by torklift central for aesthetics and possibly more clearance, but went with this one because it was so much cheaper. So far I haven't regretted it. 187090

2012 Toyota Sienna


I am very pleased with Etrailer.com service, shipping, and especially their helpful videos. I had one bolt that I had trouble with due to some minor thread damage, but one call to Customer Service, and a replacement was on the way. The Kurt hitch fits nicely up under the rear bumper and I especially like that I could reinstall the the plastic appearance panel on my 2012 Sienna. As mentioned in the videos, check to make sure each bolt will easily screw all the way into the weld nuts before you start to install the hitch. I had a couple on weld nuts that needed work to clean out, even on a new van. Also read the other reviews before you start for useful hints. I installed by myself using a floor jack to raise the hitch up into place as another reviewer suggested, and the hitch slid right up into position for bolting. Also, I did not need to undo the exhaust hanger, just moved it out of the way a little to get clearance. 52094

2007 Toyota Sienna


Excellent product. Installed easily with no vehicle modifications on the 2007 Sienna van. It was a simple bolt on installation. I'm glad the instructions specified the torque settings (79 ft. lbs.) because I would have never known to snug them that tight. It seems that the cupped washers had to be compressed to serve as lock washers. That seemed like a lot of torque. I was afraid that the bolts were going to shear, but they did not. Once the washers got compressed the bolts tightened up to recommended torque. 149549

How did you attach the trailer wiring harness to the hitch? I did not see an attachment for it in the pictures. Thank you.

The attachment show is a bracket for 5 and 6 pin trailer sockets, not very common configuration. As an example, a 2012 Toyota Sienna would use part # 118498
T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector
$59.95
as a harness kit. From there you can use a bracket like part # 18144
Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat
$4.19
. The hardware should not be secured into the hitch though. It can be attached to a trim panel on the underside of the minivan or used with a clamp-on bracket like part # 18136
No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long
$9.99

2006 Toyota Sienna


Just received and installed a Curt C13105 hitch on my 2006 Sienna with no problems whatsoever in about 30 minutes. I backed my van up onto some auto type ramps on a concrete portion of my car port so that I would have a little more room to work and also be able to use a creeper (I'm 60 years old and not as nimble as I would like to be). I did run a wire brush on a cordless drill into the frame mounting holes to clean them out. Propped one side of the hitch on top of the exhaust and inserted a couple of the supplied bolts into the drivers' side, then on to the passenger side three bolts. Once all the bolts were installed, I tightened everything with ratchet wrench and an 8" extension. Final torque with a torque wrench and done. It helps if your vehicle is fairly clean underneath: less junk in your eyes! 73057

Good quality, but the installation on the 2015 AWD Sienna is not possible with the stock under body plastic panel. I had to cut it all up and it came out terrible. I ordered the new panel $163 with a huge discount for the 2WD model to see if it fits better as per the instructions. I believe the AWD panel has an extra down curved area that has to be entirely removed, not leaving much connecting the front and back parts of the panel. if the 2WD does not fit the AWD model, I'll have to buy a third panel and try again.... not fun. The fitment otherwise seems to be fine. The fit and finish and bolts seems to be of good quality, but the paper sticker should be easier to removed. It does come off cleanly with careful use of a heat gun. 224851

My second hitch purchase from etrailer. First was my 2008 Toyota Highlander so I could use the hitch mount bike rack.. It's been working great for 5 years. This was for my 2014 Sienna awd. Same application. As before, the order was completed incredibly fast. Only took three days to show up. Installation is easy for anyone with even mediocre mechanical skills. If you have the roughly 60-90 minutes (when doing it by yourself) and the inclination it will save you a bunch of dough over having the dealer put one in. Thanks etrailer.... 133483

Solid contruction. A little heavier construction than I anticipated. We only plan to use it for a bike rack, or extension tray and occasionally to pull a 4x8 trailer with some mulch now and then and this hitch is way more than enough for our purposes. Gloss glack finish looks great. I have only put on one of these before on another car about 8 years ago and I was able to get this one on without any frustration. The 6 bolts only took me less than an hour. You do need about 6 inches extension on a good sized ratchet to get to the bolts and to apply enough pressure without having to move the tailpipe. Very happy with the product. I put this on a 2009 Toyota Sienna. 122913

Everything was excellent - right down to my call to the customer service agent who explained the differences in the trailer hitches for my Sienna Van. I watched the installation video a few times and then a friend helped me install the hitch with no issues. The only thing I didn't have was an extension bar for my ratchet set. I had a 3 inch extension, but in order to clear the exhaust pipe on the right side of the van you'll need a about an 8-10 inch extension bar. The video even shows the mechanic using a longer extension bar so no fault of e-trailer. Total install time was about an hour...great product and no issues. 216128

Just got the Curt hitch yesterday afternoon. I was at work, so the product was delivered to my side yard (out of sight from thief). Thx. I installed it onto my 2004 Toyota Sienna as soon as I got home. It took me about 45 mins to install this all by myself. I wish I have the video to show you how I did it without much hassel. I must say that the installation video on this site is excellent and it helps tremendously. The product is great. I also ordered the Rhino Bike rack from Etrailer.com to be used with this hitch. Both products are great and can't wait to use it on our bike trip this coming weekend. 48367

The pics and instructions on etrailer.com were great. I installed the hitch myself, took me about 90 minutes, would have been faster if I had help. This was installed on a 2014 sienna with AWD and the fit was perfect. A shape utility knife is all you need to cut the hole, I made the hole bigger since I have big hands. I did find the hitch on Amazon for a little less money, but since I made my decision based on the videos on this site I stuck with this company. The box the hitch arrived in was falling apart when my wife received it but everything was there and the hitch wasn't damaged. 209076

A very good product - solidly built and nice appearance. Heavy powdercoating should resist rust and last a long time. Fairly easy to install by even a novice DIYer. However, even on a fairly new vehicle (2010 Sienna w/ ~15,000 miles), the mounting holes on the undercarriage needed cleaning. Getting the bolts started by hand - without stripping the threads - takes the patience of a saint (and some WD40). Also, the directions call for trimming the lower plastic lip of the rear bumper. I found this wasn't necessary - as the hitch mounts flush with the bottom. As always, YMMV. 35518

I bought this hitch for my 2006 Toyota Sienna so that I could start using a hitch mounted bike rack. I received it quickly from etrailer with all the necessary hardware and it lined up exactly as it was supposed to. Etrailer's videos couldn't have been more clear as to the installation procedure and if the weld nuts on my van weren't so corroded after 7 years of Minnesota weather, installation would have been a snap. As it was, I wound up calling my local service station and had them use a thread tap to clean out the nuts. Great product and great website content. 154892

Very fast delivery. (Got it earlier than the estimate). Great video and instructions. Just tested it this weekend with the bikes on and no problems at all on a several hundred mile camping trip. Very secure and the DIY install made this super cheap!!! Install was clear. It was only DH who forgot to put back on the underbody because he didn't watch the video despite my suggestions which made the finish time take a little longer. If you have a decent ability AND watch the video, the install is easy and clear cut! Toyota Sienna 2014. 139507

Hitch was delivered on the day specified with no surprises. Shipping box was in rough shape, but powder coating and all else was intact. Installation on my 2008 Sienna van was a snap. My son helped hold it in place and helped hold the exhaust pipe off to the side a little so I could get a ratchet on two of the bolts. Installed in about 30 minutes with no glitches encountered. Very pleased with how this looks on the van and with the great service from etrailer.com 70389

The trailer hitch that I purchased for my 2005 Toyota Sienna installed exactly the way the etrailer installation video said it would. The trickiest part was getting the threads of the weld nuts (on the Sienna) cleaned out. I had all the necessary hardware and can't imagine the project going better. It took me and my brother about 3 hours from start to finish. 2 hours was set up and cleaning out the nuts. Now I'm ready to pull a trailer. Thank you etrailer! 145982

Great / easy installation on a Sienna. Toyota made it easy with the provided recessed mounting points. Just slip the right side receiver over the exhaust and bolt up the unit. Recommend following the instructions on cleaning the bolt holes with a wire brush. Really a good fit that hugs the lower bumper skin. Safety chain attachments should be a snap. 47883

Great quality hitch. The Sienna is a challenging vehicle for hitch design because of the low rear bumper height. This hitch does as good a job as possible to provide the most ground clearance.

2013 Toyota Sienna


Very happy with the hitch and the ease of installation onto my 2013 sienna. I don't have a lift, but our driveway has a small dropoff at the end, so backing it within a few feet of the end gave me a couple more feet of clearance to work with. Even then, it was pretty cramped and maneuvering the 40lb hitch into place did require some patience. Overall it probably took me closer to 2 hours total, but everything basically went exactly as the instructions and the video showed. I used tin snips instead of a rotary tool to cut the plastic undercoating, and that produced just as nice of an edge. I also needed to get a 10" extension for my socket wrench (which I think the instructions do say you need) to get at some of the nuts. I didn't have a torque wrench, so "get a torque wrench and properly retighten all the nuts" is on my "someday" list of things to do. The mounted hitch doesn't interfere with anything during normal city driving (my wife hasn't complained about it on her daily commute getting the kids to and from school) Mounted a "Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Hitch Rack" onto it, drove some bikes up to camp and back, everything held up just fine. Even with the rack loaded and swung out to the side, which should put quite a bit of torque on the hitch joint, the hitch never seemed to be under strain. I have to say that the etrailer videos showing how to mount it basically sold me. Very smart on their part! 82623

Hello Nathan,Your paragraph on the install was just great. What are you towing with your Sienna?I have just started to investigate what I could buy for a trailer to sleep in. All of the in-formation I am starting with is somewhat confusing.My van is an 11 four cylinder Sienna and the tong weight is not up to high for what I want to buy. So interested if you camp. My first wife died and now I started up again at 70 with a new wife who is much younger and we like to travel. Every thing is so expensive that if we bought a trailer, it would be great with two older dogs to 10-8 on the road.Fritz F.

We have sent an email to Nathan about your question. Remember to make sure whatever you pull falls within the capacities of the hitch and vehicle. With the 4 cylinder in particular, you will probably need to look for very light weight setups like a tear drop or pop-up.

Hi Fritz - it sounds like you have quite an adventure ahead of you! Unfortunately, I dont have much advice to offer. We just used the hitch to carry a bike rack - we never used it to tow anything. I did see some folks with minivans towing pop-ups and they seemed to be doing ok, although our New England roads tend to be pretty flat so I dont know how their engines would do on more mountainous terrain. Just do whatever Patrick says, and good luck!

2013 Toyota Sienna


The finish on the hitch was very good. Only some of the very edges of the plate material used on either side of the hitch showed some steel. As a precautionary measure, I spray painted an additional coat of Rustolium paint. This final coat went on very well over the existing finish. The hitch fit well. Pay close attention to the video when they take the plastic undercover off. For the Toyota Sienna, there are three distinct types of fasteners. The bolt types are obvious to take off, but the other two are not. One unscrews and the other has a white center part that pops out allowing the remainder of the plastic rivet to come out. Also, the placement of the cut-out slot in the plastic under-panel shown on the video and in the instructions is slightly off for the 2013 Sienna. I think that it should be moved about 1/2 inch toward the driver side of the van to be more in line with the hitch support arm. One last note, which may be obvious to some, is to realize that once you tighten the hitch in place, there is no room above the hitch to allow you to move the plastic under-panel around for alignment. Therefore, as recommended, leave as much slack in the mounting bolts as possible to give yourself the most room between the hitch and the van to maneuver the plastic cover in place for fastening. 83821

To be honest, I was apprehend at first for buying a receiver hitch for my 2013 Toyota Sienna XLE. Well, I decided to purchase "Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13105; watched the video several times. Once the hitch arrived, jack the van up, take off the plastic panel, (FYI-2013 sienna there were no plastic bolts in factory hold just plastic peeled off sticker-6 holds), cut out one side of the panel per instruction, greased all six bolts, and hand tightened bolts on one side and another person hold the side and continued to other. Yes, take two person to do this little project; and only took us 40 minutes. Barely notice that the hitch underneath the van. Very good product. BTW, bout cargo carrier and cargo bag. 81233

-The Curt C13105 hitch arrived quickly and fit well. The 2015 Sienna LE AWD has a long DROPPED RIDGE in the plastic underbody guard. The dropped ridge runs parallel to the (round) hitch crossbar nearly it's entire length. -The measurements given to trim the driver's side for the hitch plate were perfect. There was mention of "some models need additional trimming" (and a photo that I did not find useful) - the 2015 Sienna tray needed additional trimming. -So, I mounted the hitch and let it "pivot" from the front-most bolt on each side (leaving the rear 2 out). A floor jack is handy, as recommended when doing this solo. I used the jack to lift the rack up against the underbody guard and trace where to trim. It was easy to trim just around the receiver tube and gusset plate. The cross-bar traps and "sandwiches" underbody guard nicely if you do not cut out the whole dropped ridge. I chose to do this, and it's snug and secure with only slight distortion of the guard, and I believe trimming out the whole ridge would leave floppy, unsupported edges. It is important to secure the guard with it's fasteners first before using the floor jack to "squeeze" the rack up into it's final location and assembling the final rear bolts. Oh, and the CURT box makes a great, clean, slightly cushioned surface for laying on if you're doing this at home in the garage. Much better than a mechanic's creeper for a task like this. Also, I took a few minutes to chase the Sienna weld-nuts with a M12x1.25 tap. The bolts were then easy to start by hand. 234718

  • We offer both light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class II and medium-duty 2-inch Class III hitches for your 2015 Toyota Sienna XLE. All can be seen on the linked page. The two linked articles offer helpful background on hitch types. We always recommend opting for the higher capacity 2-inch hitch when the choice exists. This hitch size offers better compatibility with a wide range of hitch-mount accessory items like bike and cargo carriers and a Class III will usually also have a higher weight capacity....

  • Trailer Hitch, Bike Rack and Towing Equipment Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Sienna
  • I recommend a 2-inch Class III hitch for your 2015 Toyota Sienna over a smaller Class II type since it will give you higher capacity and/or a better safety margin. I suggest Curt 2-inch hitch # C13105 because it has the same capacity as the others but costs less. Written instructions and an install video are linked for you. In terms of ground clearance all hitches made for your car will mount to the same points on the frame; no one particular hitch will give you noticeably better ground...

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitches for 2013 Toyota Sienna with Hitch Bike Rack
  • A trailer hitch's towing capacity and tongue weight capacity are determined by the testing done by the manufacturer. The Draw-Tite # 75237 is designed to be able to tow a greater amount of weight than the Curt # C13105 hitch. Either hitch will work well for your 2013 Toyota Sienna, as I found the maximum towing capacity for the vehicle, with the towing package, to be 3,500 pounds. I found this information on page 211 of the owner's manual. The crosstube of the Curt hitch does sit a little...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Toyota Sienna
  • I think you did, the Curt Hitch part # C13105 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Toyota Sienna so it would do a great job carrying a bike rack. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. The Sportrack Bike Rack part # SR2405 that you referenced would do a great job carrying your 5 bikes as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Which Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Toyota Sienna Has the Most Ground Clearance
  • When we have installed trailer hitch # 36513 on Toyota Sienna vans the same generation as yours we measured approximately 11 inches from level ground to the TOP of the receiver opening. To the bottom of the receiver that would be approximately 9-1/2 inches. On a 2 inch Class III hitch like # C13105, the measurement to the top of the tube is 10-1/4 inches and to the bottom of the tube it is 8 inches. The smaller Class II hitches like # 36513 will give you a little more clearance but have...

  • Do I Need to Install Wiring on 2011 Toyota Sienna Equipped With a Tow Package
  • I researched the 2011 Toyota Sienna, and found that your Sienna should have the V6 motor which would be the model rated for towing and has a few added features. The 2011 Toyota Sienna does not come equipped with trailer wiring, and you will need to install Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring for the Toyota Sienna, part # 118498 which will allow you to have light functions on your trailer. I have linked instructions for installation of part # 118498. To complete your towing setup,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Towing Capacities Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Sienna
  • From the research I did it looks like your 2016 Toyota Sienna has a 3,500 lb towing capacity so it would be capable of towing as long as you stay under that capacity. Be sure to verify this in the owners manual though. For a hitch that would match this capacity and is the most popular option for your vehicle we have the Curt Hitch part # C13105 that I would recommend. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball...

  • Differences Between Class II and III Hitches for 2012 Toyota Sienna
  • The primary differences between the 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch receiver are the size and the capacity. The Class III hitches for your Sienna have a 3500 lb towing/ 350 lb tongue weight capacity. The Class II hitches have the same towing capacity, but a lower tongue weight capacity, at 300 lbs. We usually recommend going with the Class III if the choice is available. The 2 inch receiver opening used by the Class III hitch is more common, and therefore there is a better selection of hitch...

  • Under Body Panel Trimming to Install Curt Class III Receiver Part # C13105 on 2011 Toyota Sienna SE
  • According to my contacts at Curt Manufacturing, no trimming of the bumper fascia will be needed to install the Class III Receiver, part # C13105 on your 2011 Sienna SE. Certain models of the Sienna that are equipped with the plastic under body panel (see linked installation instructions) might need a 12-1/2 by 2-3/4 inch area of the panel trimmed. This panel is located completely underneath the vehicle, and is not visible unless you are under the vehicle. According to the person in Tech...

  • Fit of CURT Trailer Hitch Part # 13256 on 2011 Toyota Sienna SE
  • I have spoken with one of our friends at CURT Manufacturing, who assured me that the CURT Class III Receiver Hitch, part # 13256 will fit all models of the 2011 Toyota Sienna, including the SE model. The different bumper on the SE should not hinder the installation. I have provided a link below to the installation instructions for you to review. Also linked is an FAQ on trailer hitch installation tips.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Sienna XLE
  • I have attached a link to the trailer hitch receivers available for your 2015 Toyota Sienna XLE. Due to the fact that the maximum tongue weight capacity available for your vehicle is 350 lbs, you will need to transport the power wheelchair with a small trailer which is best obtained locally. Putting the wheelchair on a hitch mounted carrier would exceed the hitch's capacity and could cause damage to the hitch as well as your vehicle. Although I do not have a trailer available, I can...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation Is the Thule Raceway the Best Choice for a Toyota Sienna Mini Van
  • You are correct, Thule does recommend the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount 3 Bike Carrier, item # TH9002PRO, for your 2004 Toyota Sienna. I recently had the chance to install this rack on a vehicle, not a mini van, and it is the easiest to install trunk mount rack that I have used. If you will be using the bike rack on different vehicles or might be getting a new vehicle in the near future, this is the rack I would recommend, and it will safely carry your bikes, see video link.
