Toyota Corolla Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers

  • With Curt trailer hitch # C11265 installed on your 2016 Toyota Corolla the distance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch will be approximately 9-1/4 inches. It measures 10-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • For your 2016 Toyota Corolla I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24913. It does not require a strap to use a bike rack. Once installed the hitch will be approximately 9-1/2 inches up from the ground. But, since the hitch is positioned at the end of the vehicle, you would have to be at a very severe angle for the hitch to make contact with the ground. And if you go with a bike rack with a rise in the shank, such as the Trail Rider # HR200 which has a rise in the shank, the bike rack...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Corolla
  • For your 2015 Toyota Corolla the hitch I would recommend is the Hidden Hitch part # 60345 that comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. This hitch would install pretty easily actually. If you check out the install video I attached you will see exactly what it would take to install it. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258.

  • Can Trailer Hitch on 2015 Toyota Corolla Be Removed After Each Use
  • The Curt Class I hitch, part # C11265 is indeed a fit for a 2015 Toyota Corolla. As you can see by looking at the installation hardware I've linked, The hitch installs using four bolts that insert into nuts that have already been welded into the frame at the factory. No drilling is required, and no modifications will be required other than removing the tow hook if it's present. No welding is required, in fact the hitch warranty would be voided if it were welded or otherwise installed...

  • Will Trailer Hitch for 2013 Toyota Prius Also Fit on 2015 Toyota Corolla
  • The hitches offered for the 2013 Toyota Prius and the 2015 Toyota Corolla are all custom-fit light-duty Class I types that use specific mounting points on the vehicles' frames for installation. Since the two cars do not use the same frame the hitches for one do not fit the other. I checked all available hitch models for both the 2013 Prius and the 2015 Corolla and no one product fits both cars, I'm sorry to say. For reference, the hitch fits for both cars are viewable on the links provided....

  • Honestly, all of the hitches that are available for your 2014 Toyota Corolla will be just as visible as the next. The round crosstube of the hitch and the hitch opening will be visible but out of plain sight. The reason the Hidden Hitch part # 60345 costs more than the other hitches is because it comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. If you don't plan on doing any towing and only plan on carrying bike racks then this would not be the best option for you. The Draw Tite #...

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.

Our manufacturers do not make hitches with higher class ratings to fit your vehicle.

  • Using Hitch Adapter to Carry 2 Inch Bike Rack in Class I Hitch on 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Using an adapter like the # HTAD you mentioned is certainly an option. However, using an adapter will cut your tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the hitch) by 50 percent. Instead of a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, using the adapter will lower it to 100 lbs. This means that the bike rack and the two bikes carried on it can weigh no more than 100 lbs. The # HTAD and other adapters are not threaded for an anti-rattle device. Ideally, you'd...

  • Trailer Hitches and Towing Capacities for 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Makers of trailer hitches design their products based on the capabilities of the cars they are intended to fit. In the case of the 2014 Toyota Corolla only light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches are made. This is simply because the Corolla's frame is not strong enough to support a hitch of higher capacity than this Class I type. You might care to review the linked articles on hitch sizes and classes.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • We can't ever recommend you go against what the owners manual of your vehicle states as far as towing goes because that would void the warranty of your vehicle most likely. We do carry everything you would need to tow a small boat and trailer with your 2014 Toyota Corolla though. For a hitch I would recommend the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24913. For trailer wiring part # 118405, ball mount part # 3593, 1-7/8 inch hitch ball # 19256, 2 inch hitch ball # 19258.

  • Which Brands of Class I Hitch for 2014 Toyota Corolla Have Internal Stopper Tab
  • Curt Class I hitches like # C11265 do not have the internal stopper that is present on other brands of hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24913 and Hidden Hitch models. Keep in mind that use of any hitch adapter/extender, such as Brophy # HT5R, will reduce your hitch capacity by 50-percent. So a Class I hitch rated for 200-lbs of tongue weight will have only a 100-lb TW when used with any adapter.

Therefore, you will need to ensure that the fully loaded weight of your trailer does not exceed 1500 lbs.

  • Recommended Option for Carrying Two Bikes on 2012 Toyota Corolla

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...

The idea is to run a strap from the top of the bike rack upright or the arm to the frame or to the trunk/hatch on the car to prevent it from bending down.

To tow a trailer with the 2006 Corolla, you will want the recommended drawbar # 3593 for the Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch # 24814. The # 3593 drawbar offers 2-1/8 inch rise or a 2-3/4 inch drop, and comes with the needed pin and clip. For a hitch ball...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for a 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • Draw-Tite Class I and II trailer hitches from us do not come with the ball mount, pin, and clip. The Hidden Hitch models do (Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are sister companies). This also accounts for the weight difference. We also put the hitches in a special box when we ship them. Hidden Hitch # 60200 is the same hitch ad Draw-Tite # 24814. They even share the same instructions for installation on your 2005 Toyota Corolla, linked for you to view. I have also linked a video showing installation...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • Many times there are no changes to the frame for several years when vehicles are manufactured. That allows hitch manufacturers to make the same hitch for that same period of time. The installation video we have for a 2013 Corolla would be very similar to the installation on your 2005. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24913. This Class l hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening, and includes a ball mount, pin and clip. If you need a 1-7/8 inch ball for the hitch I recommend...

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier for 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • Draw-Tite light-duty Class I hitch # 24814 is indeed a correct fit for your 2005 Toyota Corolla and provides a 200-lb maximum tongue weight (TW) capacity. In cases like yours where the car's TW capacity is likely to be lower (150-lbs) that lower limit does become the overall capacity for the system. Wiring harness # 55542 is a fit for your Corolla and installs without cutting or splicing any wires. We do offer cargo carriers that will work great with a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch like the...

  • Thread Tap Size Needed To Clean Out Weldnuts in Frame for Hitch Installation on 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • The Curt Class I hitch, part # C11227 uses an M12-1.25x30 bolt. The bolt is 12mm in diameter, the thread pitch is 1.25 (meaning the threads are 1.25mm apart) and 30mm long. You'd need a M12-1.25 thread tap. If you haven't tried scrubbing out the weldnuts, you might try that first. Our installers have found that a steel brush like the one included with the # DW00254 battery terminal cleaner works very well. Soak the threads with a penetrating lubricant and allow it to soak for awhile...

  • Bolt Size to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2004 Toyota Corolla
  • The weldnuts in the frame for your 2004 Toyota Corolla to install a trailer hitch are M12 nuts. The bolts used to install a hitch, # C11265 as an example, are M12-1.25 x 30mm grade 5. It is recommended to clean out the weldnuts prior to installing the hitch. Road grime and corrosion can get compacted in the threads and you would not be able to thread in the bolts without first cleaning the weldnuts. I have included some links to the right that should help. If you plan on doing some...

  • How Much Towing Capacity do you Lose if You Use a Hitch Adapter/Extender
  • The generally accepted rule for hitch adapters is that you will lose 50 percent of your towing capacities if you use one. So if you used one on the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch, part # 24814, that you referenced the weight capacity would be cut from 2,000 total weight capacity and 200 tongue weight down to 1,000 total weight and 100 lbs tongue weight. I attached installation instructions for the # 24814 below for you to check out. I attached a link to an FAQ article on hitch...

If you look at the pictures on the product page, we actually show the hitch installed on an S model. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

And for trailer wiring, use # 55542....

  • Can I Install the Hitch from My 1997 Toyota Corolla onto my 2004 Carolla
  • To put a hitch on your 2004 Toyota Corolla Sedan you would need a Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch for the Toyota Corolla, 2004, part # 60200. If your newer Corolla was from the years 1993-2002 you could reuse the hitch from your 1997 Corolla, but the 2004 has a differently designed frame from your 1997 that would not allow you to install the hitch onto your 2004. Here are some other items you may need to complete your towing setup: Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring for the Toyota Corolla,...

  • 4-Bike Platform Carriers for 1-1/4-Inch Trailer Hitch on 2004 Toyota Corolla
  • All of the 1-1/4-inch trailer hitches offered for your 2004 Toyota Corolla, such as # 24814, are light duty Class I types that are limited to use with a 2-bike rack only. This limitation has to do with the vehicle's frame structure and how much tongue weight it can support without damage. Even if you were to select an ultra-light hanging style rack (generally these are lighter than the platform type) you would still be limited to carrying 2 bikes on any Class I hitch offered for your vehicle. I...

  • Installing a Trailer Hitch in a 2002 Toyota Corolla that Does Not have Weld Nuts in the Frame
  • It is possible that your 2002 Toyota Corolla does not have weld nuts in the frame. You may be able to feel the hole (center hole, top) to determine if there are threads. If there are then they should be 12mm. If there are no weld nuts then you will need to drill a 1 inch access hole on the bottom of the frame to insert the blocks and bolts and attach the 7/16 nuts. If you look at the installation instructions linked to the right, the method for installing the hitch if the vehicle...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2002 Toyota Corolla for Use with a Swagman XC Platform Bike Rack
  • The Swagman XC bike rack # S64650 fits both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch trailer hitches (Class I, II, and III). Curt trailer hitch # C111813 is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so the two are compatible. If you are not going to use the hitch for towing then I recommend going with # C11181 because the hitch you referenced, even though it is the same hitch, comes with a ball mount. If you will not be towing there is no need for the ball mount. Both of these hitches require...

  • Installation of a Trailer Hitch on a 2001 Toyota Corolla Requires Notching Metal Panel
  • If you take a look at the instructions I have linked for Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24579 it does say that a center strap needs to be cut and removed and on the back side it also indicates that the metal panel will need to be notched to be able to install the hitch on your 2001 Toyota Corolla. This is par for the course on all of the hitches available for your Corolla. If you plan on doing any towing the correct ball mount is # 3592. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2001 Toyota Corolla
  • The hitch I would recommend for your 2001 Toyota Corolla is the Draw Tite part # 24579. This hitch doesn't require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack like the Curt does and doesn't come with a ball mount that you wouldn't need like the Hidden Hitch does. All of the hitches will require some minor drilling to install though so there is no getting around that. I attached an install video for this hitch as well. The most popular platform bike rack we offer that would...

  • Installation of a Trailer Hitch on a 2000 Toyota Corolla 4 Door Sedan without Weld Nuts in Frame
