Toyota Corolla Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Yes, Curt trailer hitch # C11265 will fit the 2017 Toyota Corolla. But if you plan on using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier and not towing I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24913. The reason is that for the Curt hitch Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using their hitch with any non-trailer load for their warranty requirements. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement.

  • Distance from Ground to Bottom of Curt Trailer Hitch C11265 Installed on a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • 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. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • When it comes to whether or not a vehicle can tow a trailer you have to follow either what the owners manual states or what Toyota says. In your case you have the owners manual saying one thing and a Toyota dealer saying another. You might try contacting another dealer, but if they told you that your vehicle is okay to tow then they are saying the warranty of your vehicle would still be good through them if you were to tow a trailer and have any issues in the future.

While some of the hitches from the 2012 Corolla are fits for the 2016 model, unfortunately the 24814 trailer hitch is not confirmed to fit the 2016 Toyota Corolla.

  • 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...

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.

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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

This hitch is for new Rav4s actually. I like the Draw Tite hitch over the Curt for your vehicle as it does not require a stabilizer strap part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. The...

  • Trailer Hitch and Way To Carry 4 Bikes Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • The thing about Class I hitches is that they can not carry more than 2 bikes at a time as the additional leverage that the 3rd and 4th bikes would put on the hitch would be too much stress. This is due to the longer distance from the hitch that those bikes would be carried. For carrying 2 bikes the Draw Tite hitch part # 24913 would be the best choice as it does not require the stabilizer strap like the Curt and does not come with a ball mount like the Hidden Hitch.

  • 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.

  • Towing Capacity, Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2013 Toyota Corolla

At 1,200 pound you are under that 1,500 pound limit for a trailer with brakes. But towing will put additional stress on the vehicle. For a trailer hitch I recommend # C112653. This hitch comes with the proper ball mount. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19257 and for a 2...

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

  • The two options I have for you would be to order a new install kit using part # RHK by entering the part number for the hitch you have and the manufacturer on the product page. Or you can source the bolts elsewhere as they are M12 X 1.25 X 35 CL8.8. You will need a matching 1/2 inch washer and conical washer.

  • Recommendation for Transporting Mobility Scooter with 2006 Toyota Corolla
  • The easiest way to transport a mobility scooter with your 2006 Toyota Corolla is to use a small trailer with a ramp. We do not offer any hitch-mount cargo carriers with a ramp that will fit the Class I trailer hitch on the Corolla. To tow a trailer with the 2006 Corolla, you will want the recommended drawbar # 3593 for the Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch # 24913. 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...

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier for 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • Curt light-duty Class I hitch # C11265 is indeed a correct fit for your 2005 Toyota Corolla and provides a 200-lb maximum tongue weight (TW) capacity.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for Carrying 4 Bikes on 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • You are spot on that our trailer hitch manufacturers only design Class I trailer hitches for your 2005 Toyota Corolla, such as the Draw-Tite Class I Receiver Hitch # 24913. Because of the force exerted on the hitch and vehicle frame by the bikes when on the bike rack, Class I hitches are limited to carrying 2 bikes on a hitch rack. The best solution to allow you to carry your other 2 bikes on your Corolla is to use a roof rack and roof mounted bike racks. For a hitch a bike rack to carry...

  • 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...

  • 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 Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for the Toyota Corolla, 2004, part # 24913. 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, 2004,...

  • 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 # C11265, 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...
