Curt Hitch # C13035 Recommendation for a 1998 Chevy Astro Van

Question:

what are the diferences from class 2,3 or 4 for trailer hitch for chevy astro van 1998...

asked by: Humberto T


Expert Reply:

The reason there are hitch classifications is to easily differentiate the different towing capacities for various hitches.

Generally speaking, the higher the hitch classification the higher the weight capacities will be for that hitch. So a Class IV will be stronger than a Class III which will be stronger than a Class II.

I attached an FAQ page on hitch classifications for you to check out also.

The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13035 that you referenced is a Class III hitch can handle 4,000 lbs carrying weight and 400 lbs tongue without weight distribution, and 6,000 lbs carrying weight and 600 lbs tongue when used with weight distribution.

I attached installation instructions for this product also.
