Incredible price on a great hitch from Curt. I have no idea how etrailer can offer free shipping on something like this, but they do. Awesome. I ordered the ball mount complete with 2" ball and pin/clip which was likewise priced extremely competitively. The hitch bolted up to my Transit T-250 easily. I took the extra step of running a tap into the (4) unthreaded holes on the van, but it's not necessary. For me, it just made the install a little easier and made me feel better. The new Transits are generally lower in the rear vs. the old E series van's, so I flipped the ball mount into the "rise" position to get the right ball height. Stated specs for the ball mount were 2" Drop and 3/4" Rise. 429381

First off, I can hardly believe how quickly my order (hitch receiver, ball mount and wiring kit) arrived. I ordered it Wednesday during business hours, selected standard shipping (free) and it was waiting for me at home on Friday afternoon. I installed it all this morning. As others have mentioned, it definitely takes longer to remove the factory parts than it does to install the new parts. Make sure you have an extension for your socket set to make getting the rearmost bolt out/in of the frame easier. One thing to note, the installation videos that were suggested to me for this hitch receiver said that the spare tire cradle could not/would not be re-installed, however, this particular hitch has a flange that allows for the cradle to be reinstalled again. All you have to do is pop off the threaded clips from the factory receiver and install them on the new receiver. This can be done easily using a flat screw driver. One other "tip & trick" is that the shipping box that the receiver came in can be used as a nice cushion on the garage floor to give you some insulation/padding if you're not fortunate enough to have a lift at your disposal. Just pull out all the staples and flatten the box, presto-chango, there you go! 494431

This hitch was installed on my 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Limited. The website is fantastic and makes finding the correct products for your vehicle very easy. The hitch arrived in only a few days and came complete with all the necessary installation accessories. The hitch comes with fish wire for the frame bolts so you don't need to fuss with buying fish wire. Some reviews stated that you can go in from the inside of the vehicle but this is totally unnecessary and more work. Just follow the instructions, with exception of the muffler heat shield. You can drill 1/2" holes through the heat shield in the dimpled areas corresponding to where the instructions tell you to cut out the heat shield (see some of the other reviews for more detail on this). These holes allow you to securely fasten the heat shield over the hitch using the hitch bolts. Make sure you have a torque wrench and an 11/16" deep socket to tighten the frame bolts. I would also recommend removing the muffler which is very simple. Lube the muffler mounts with WD-40 to facilitate the removal of the muffler. You will save at least $300 installing this yourself. 485072

After reviewing the installation instructions and videos you provided on the internet for the wiring harness and hitch for my 2010 Hyundai Veracruz I felt I could tackle the installation. I'm 80 and it has been a while since I have done something like this. Your instructions were right on and like following a cookbook. The Curt 13545 model met my requirements. I did drop the spare to give me more room since I was not using a lift. Using the spare as a pivot point I was able to attach one side of the hitch and then using blocks I moved the other side into place with out having to lift and hold the assembly. I didn't have to remove the exhaust completely, just slipped the rubber mounts free and was able to get to all the heat shield bolts without much contortions. The wiring harness just snapped into the sockets on the Veracruz and routing was as you described. The electrical checkout was just as described. While it took me about 5 hours by myself, everything was doable. The hitch, Harness, Ball Mount assembly and Ball could not have been better. No photos, crawling around on the garage floor kept me busy. 463850

I recently purchased this hitch and related wiring accessories from etrailer for my 05 Hyundai Tucson. Following the included installation instructions I found the hitch easy to install. Total install time including the wiring adapter was approximately 1.5 hours without rushing. 482733

Quality products. The hitch and wiring harness installed easily because of the quality detailed installation videos you provided. I couldn't be happier. I saved $ 300 by doing the installation myself. I plan on using the hitch for a bicycle rack and to pull a motorcyle trailor. Since I don't have a pickup it is really convenient to be able to tow a utility trailor when needed. Thanks etrailer! You have a good thing going. Keep up the good work. 420977

I've made several purchases from e-trailer.com and have had excellent service and quick delivery. The front hitch was difficult to mount because the straps welded to the 1/2 inch nut weren't quite long enough to catch the thru bolt. I had a fairly hard time lining the nut up but was able to do it. 237812

I bought both the hitch and ball receiver. The ball receiver was well package and arrived unscathed...unfortunately the hitch arrived damaged or poorly painted. As the attached photo show a bit of sliver metal is visible and I'm concerned that rust will attack and weaken the structure. This uneven and rough area is located on both sides and at both ends. I not sure if it is all damage because of the roughness of the blemish. The area pictured is worst of the four damages. The shipping carton shows damage and repair to the box tear. The tear was repaired with clear tape and staples. The metal staples could have caused some damage exposing the bear metal. I just happen to have some black spray-can paint and will cover the bear metal before installing later the morning. Thank you for this product review opportunity. 444781

It was an adventure. After a problem with UPS refusing to deliver my package I was in touch with etrailer trying to figure out a solution to get this back out to me. I don’t blame etrailer for the delay, but the package was in bad shape I believe. It took roughly 2 weeks or so before I actually got the product delivered. Finally had a chance to install it tonight and it took me about 1.5-2 hours. The video for installation was really helpful, but I had to modify to get spacers in between the metal. It took myself and my brother as we did not lift the truck. Moving your spare tire is almost required and be sure to use the extra bolt they give you for your ground wire. Overall, it was a semi painless process but be extremely careful with your fishwire. I haven’t towed with it yet, but I will soon. Thank you etrailer! 423335

I bought Tow Package Wiring Harness W/ 7-way Connector (118265), Curt Class III Ballmount -2" ball-2" Drop (C45036), and Adapter 7 To 4 W/tester & Cover (47345) from etrailer for my Honda 2014 Pilot. I ordered Friday and arrived next Monday with free-shipping offer. Installation was very easy with all instruction videos and photos (less than one hour). Tester function on the adapter (7 pole to 4 pole) was very useful to check if the installation was correct. Everything seemed working fine. Soon, I need to rent a trailer which has 4-pole connector. Etrailer price of the adapter is much cheaper than [theirs]. Furthermore it has the tester function which gave me assurance my newly installed equipment was ready to be used (No surprise at [their] store with non-working trailer wiring). 417320

package arrived on time. the box arrived damaged scratches on paint but I still installed it. installation was easy thanks to you tube. the bracket for the wiring was short for my 2017 Honda pilot. bracket needs to be at least 3 inches longer I have attached some pictures other than that I would have been much happier it will do for now. I Hope this review help for the piloteers. 374703

2012 Honda Pilot wiring harness 118265. Ordered harness for my Honda Pilot on Monday and received on Thurs!! All parts were in excellent condition on arrival from UPS. I had already read many of the reviews and tips for this harness and that made installation very easy. All the connections went together quickly and easily with no problems. Went to Lowe's and bought 1/4"-20x - 1" stainless bolts and lock nuts as previous installers had said they used. From start to finish took about 1 hr!! I used dielectric grease as stated from installers on connections under bumper exposed to any water. Excellent product and service from etrailer is always superb. I would highly recommend this connector for anybody needing to put 7pole outlet on 2012 Honda Pilot. 223408

This is my first purchase from etrailer.com, and I must say that the entire ordering/delivery process went as smooth-as-glass. This product, the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball, also complements the trailer hitch that I also ordered from etrailer.com. This product, along with the Curt Trailer Hitch are of VERY HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS and SUPERIOR CRAFTSMANSHIP. I will be using this Ball Mount along with the Trailer Hitch to tow a small camping trailer along with a motorcycle trailer on my 2015 VW Tiguan. I will be recomending etrailer.com to my family and friends and anyone else I meet who is interested in very high quality recreation equipment along with excellant customer support! Very best regards, Rob G. 359294

Ordered this to complete my Curt Receiver Hitch. Not too much to say. It is a new small drop Hitch with a mounted ball and pin. I do like how the ball has machined wrench flats at the base to make removing the ball much easier in the future. As always ensure you insert the new hitch with a good coat of anti-seize! 340940

My first trailer hitch was delivered bent. Bent in two planes so it couldn't be straightened by me. Mark and Jana arranged to have a replacement sent right away. It arrived and it, too, was bent but only slightly. It straightened easily. Went on as advertised in less than an hour! I bet that many trailer hitches arrive bent. They are shipped in a plain cardboard box. The long flange is the one that is bent, and typically the box is smashed on one end and the flange sticks out. I don't know ow much you spend on reshipping but I bet a little $$$ spent on better packaging would pay off. Bottom line for me: the customer service was excellent - couldn't be better. 272026

I was 2/3 thru the process of ordering online my hitch, wires and ball mount when I needed a question answered about shipping. A call to customer service brought me to Carmel, a wonderfully helpful rep. After answering my question, she placed the order directly, followed up with a personal order confirmation. What surprised me was another personal mail after etrailer received confirmation of the on time delivery. I don't buy a lot of trailer hitches...but if I did they would all be bought thru Carmel at etrailer.com. Lol, the hitch, wiring and ball mount are great quality. Their videos will make the installation easy as soon as I finish this review. 334858

1992 Toyota pickup: As far as etrailer goes I was impressed. I ordered on a Wednesday at 4:30 pm. When I got home from work Friday (48 hours later) it was on my front porch. Now that's fast shipping! The hitch was a good fit for 1992 Toyota pickup. The exhaust hanger was a slight problem as other reviews have mentioned. No drilling was required, I just had to grind the clearance notch for the hanger put in by the manufacturer about 1/2 inch deeper. The notch was there just not deep enough. Other than that it was a perfect fit. Installation took about 2 hours. Looks good with the chrome bumper. I uploaded a picture of the notch. 422168

Hitch for my 2010 Lexus RX450H was very easy to install. I am 72 years old, so it took almost 2 hours of my time to do it. It is a very clean installation and all parts fit perfectly. I used a simple floor jack to lift the hitch into position. The plug and play wiring was a real plus. The connector was where it was promised on the drivers side, under the plastic flaring. 225298

One word-Perfect! I make all of my purchases online, and using etrailer.com for my recent purchase of a trailer hitch, wiring harness, luggage carrier, and trailer ball were one of the best online purchase experiences yet. The website is awesome, the how to videos are unmatched, and superb cusomer service. Highly recommended! Add all that to great variety of products! 387491

Install took a little more time than planned, did not lower the muffler. The four bolts from left to right, number two and four were threaded. 2015 Rubicon, had to get the number two bolt started first and then the others worked fine. Start the threaded bolts first. Electrical hookup easy. Have not towed yet, don't expect problems. 267195

The difference in your site that made the sale was the installation video. Which not only provided helpful hints as to how to install, but provided the confidence to make the purchase based on the understanding I could do it myself. The installation went flawlessly, and was easier than I thought. The only confusion was produced by a missing email indicating the shipping progress of the item. Cheaper is always available, but it was this experience that will have me return to your website when I need something in the future. 190475

GLORIOUS!!! Bought this item with zero experience, but much research. It is the best vehicle-related purchase I have ever made! Item performs exactly as advertised, even in spite of much abuse I have given it. Just because I could, I load tested it right at the edge of the max distributed towing weight, multiple times. No problems ever! Easy to install properly and safely!!! Well made construction! In my opinion, the best on the market at any price, but fortunately not the highest price by a pleasant margin!!! 467970

I am very pleased with the hitch. Along with the hitch, I ordered the ball mount and the wiring harness. Delivery was on point. I was going to have my mechanic install the hitch, but after watching your video a few times, I decided to tackle the job myself. It did take me about three hours to complete the installation. Of course in your video, it's all done with a lift which I didn't have. Followed the video and the installation came out great. Great product and video to referred to when needed. 294452

Overall it has been a pretty good hitch. Was a bit harder to install than I thought it would be but was able to do it in a couple hours with two people. My biggest complaint is that the hitch receiver and hitch is a very loose fit. When I have pulled a trailer, the hitch wiggles inside the receiver and making A LOT of noise. I ended up wrapping the hitch with tape to try to dampen the noise and tighten the fit a little more. Hard to imagine they are normally that loose of a fit but maybe I got a bad lemon. 433924

This product should work for my purposes. My big issue is that it was sent with the ball installed. I wanted to put the ball on the other side. It was put on so tightly, I have not been able to get it off. I tried to use a breaker bar with a 2 foot pipe and still have not been able to budge it. I am now going to try to find or buy a six foot pipe and hopefully that will work. I can’t understand why they make an assumption such as this on product usage and then make it nearly impossible to undo. 487907

This is a great trailer hitch! Super easy to install and came with everything I needed to hook it up to my Nissan Frontier in just a few minutes with no welding. My one issue was that when it arrived it was somewhat bowed in at the ends and didn't fit at first. I had to stomp on it a little bit to get the wings to get back in alignment. I presume this happened from rough handling in transit. Something etrailer could do is put some kind of brace in the packaging to prevent it from bending. 215633

Perfect fit on my car. I was worried I was going to have a hard time getting the right hitch and wiring harness, but thanks to etrailer, I didn't have a single hiccup. I was worried about not getting it in time for my cross country journey in which I will be needing to pull a small trailer. I ordered the hitch with only about a week before I'm supposed to start my drive and got everything within just a few days! Great all around. Really took the guesswork out of all of this. Thank you guys 414014

I had received multiple quotes to install a hitch on my 2014 Toyota Tacoma. All were around $400. So I did a little research and found the etrailer.com site. I found I could buy the hitch, the wiring harness and ball myself for less. The installation video they provided me gave me the confidence I could do the install myself. Now it's on and the entire process couldn't have been easier. If you can use a socket wrench and screw driver you can install your own hitch. Piece of cake! 391018

Who it concerns, I needed to purchase a new trailer hitch as one I had rusted and weakened badly. I did shop around, and felt etrailer. com with free shipping included in the total cost was the better value. Received hitch within a reasonable delivery period, and installed the hitch with absolutely no problem, in a very short time, as all nuts and bolts were included with the hitch. I was, and am very well satisfied with all aspects of my purchase from etrailer.com. 254270

Thank you George and etrailer. Very fast and timely delivery, only 2 days from ordering!! Product took 1 1/2 hours to install, with the assistance of my 13 year Grandson. We are ready to use the hitch this summer. Future trailer needs will be sought thru etrailer. 384504

Delivery was very fast. On the other hand, I revived it and when I opened the box that was undamaged the whole trailer hitch was clsxratched up all over. Showing exposed steel in Multiple areas. It almost looked like it was old and had been installed and used prior to me getting it. I had to sand down all the areas that were exposed and repaint them and seal them so they wouldnt rust. If i didn't need it right now I would be returning it. 446476

A great beginners ball mount. I got this to hook up a U-Haul trailer to my 2014 Murano. Worked great, with no issues. I ended up buying it from etrailer because they had very good video's that let me know what the differences were and what measurements I need to take to insure that I got the correct item. Plus the ball was already mounted so I didn't need to try and attach it myself with the correct torque. A great buy. 436222

First of all I was amazed at the quickness of the delivery of this product. Along with this I had ordered 2 tire fenders for my trailer, which I thought would slow down the mailing process but it did not. All the products, the Curt Class Ball mount, the Hopkins 7 way Multi tow Trailer Connector Adapter and the fenders were just like the description. Thank you E.Trailer for a great experience when ordering these products. 242836

Great service from etrailer.com. Your site helped me determine the easy "plug in" wiring kit wouldn't work on my Sorento since I did not have the tow package. Other sites told me the plug in kit would work on ALL Sorentos. Installation of the hitch was really easy. Instructions helped but weren't really needed. Have a friend help you as this Class III hitch is rather heavy. 184903

Took me about one hour to install, following the helpful directions and video provided by etrailer.... Works great! Very happy with the purchase.

All 6 items came quickly and without issue. The hitch went on with little problem and the wiring harness did also. All seems to be of great quality and should give us years of good use. The price was good, installation was easy, and I saved about 50% off the dealers price for about an hour and a half of easy work. The Ball Mount and Ball were a great addition to the setup, 203350

This product was pretty simple to install and it probably took me about 40 minutes total. The installation video made it really easy and was extremely helpful. I am not super mechanically inclined, and I was able to figure it out. If you have basic tools, and some basic know-how, you can definitely do this installation. I saved a lot of money by doing this myself. 518263

Found etrailer.com on web when I was looking for a trailer hitch for my 2002 GMC truck. This site made it easy to find the right hitch that would fit my truck at a great price.

Solid product, only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it has more play than I would like. It rattles a bit when I go over bumps and gives a slight think when I take off from a stop (or stop hard). Note I'm using it with a new Curt hitch so I'd hoped the fit would have been a little better. Maybe there is a simple fix to this that I'm not aware of. 355655

from E-trailer...and once again I'm very satisfied! The package was delivered within a few days of ordering, all the contents were included, & the videos made for a flawless self-install (& I hate to admit it, but I'm not the most handy at things like that!). I have & will continue to refer friends & family to E-trailer for any future needs. 414183

etrailer did an incredible job. They kept me updated on my order. The product was packaged well with plenty of padding to insure that nothing was damaged.

Haven't used it yet, but upon inspection it is apparent that it's a good quality product. I have other items from Curt and they are always top notch. Fast delivery. The box was a little beat up by UPS, but the packing material prevented damage to the LED trailer lights that were in the same box and nothing came out the holes in the box. 329284

  • Towing Weight Capacity of 2016 Chevrolet Traverse with Class III Trailer Hitch
  • When looking at weight capacities of a setup, you will always be limited by a system's weakest component. I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2016 Chevrolet Traverse and saw that for a front-wheel drive model that does not have the factory trailer towing package, the maximum trailer weight is 2,000 pounds. As you mentioned in your question, the towing package bumps it up to 5,200 pounds. So with your Traverse that does not have the factory tow package, you will need to...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Toyota Sienna
  • Actually the Draw-Tite # 76112, Curt # C13343, and EcoHitch # 306-X7255 all install so that only the receiver is showing. A lot of people like this look instead of having a thick piece of steel underneath their vehicle as well. You are correct in choosing a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver over a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver. The reason being that they are stronger and they are compatible with many more accessories. Since your 2016 Toyota Sienna has a max...

  • Trailer Hitch Availability for a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
  • We do have a trailer hitch available for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica hybrid. The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13383 is a confirmed fit for both the Platinum and Premium hybrid models. If you will be using this hitch to tow a trailer then you will also need a hitch ball, ball mount, and trailer wiring. The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 2" Drop # C45036 is a great option to use but you will want to consult the attached ball mount article to determine if the...

  • Comparing the Curt # C13206 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7266 for a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I take it that you are debating over the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13206 and the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7266 for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon because the Curt is rated for a higher weight capacity but the EcoHitch has a cleaner look. The thing that you need to remember is that when using your vehicle to tow or carry anything you always have to check the weight of the equipment you are using (trailer hitch) AND the weight rating for your vehicle. Whichever...

  • How to Loosen the Nut Holding a Ball on a Ball Mount
  • You will need to use a cheater bar on the end of the wrench to get enough leverage to loosen the nut on the ball on ball mount # C45036. Chances are the crescent wrench has a wide and flat handle so you will likely need to go to a hardware store to get a steel pipe wide enough to fit on the end of the handle. It probably doesn't have to be too long, 2 feet. I once had trouble with a lug nut on a car and the only thing I had on hand was a very long piece of chain link fence post and it...

  • Recommended Equipment Needed for Towing with a 2017 Honda Pilot
  • Both the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13146 that you are interested in and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75225 are identical in weight capacities and installation as well so either one will do a great job. Since you are interested in the Curt option I recommend going ahead with that trailer hitch. You will need to note that neither of these options will fit your 2017 Honda Pilot if you have the full size spare tire. You need the mini spare for proper installation. This will work great with...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Best Ground Clearance on 2017 Toyota Sienna
  • Because of the way it mounts to the vehicle frame, the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76112 is actually going to have the best ground clearance when compared to the other trailer hitches confirmed to fit your 2017 Toyota Sienna, including the 1-1/4 inch options. That is because this particular hitch installs higher than the alternatives to provide a hidden look with the cross tube, and this in turn will offer better ground clearance. I have attached a demonstration...

  • Comparing the Draw-Tite # 75912 and Curt # C13193 Trailer Hitches for a 2017 Ford Transit T250
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75912 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13193 are similar trailer hitches as they are both Class III with a 2 inch receiver opening (Draw-Tite is a manufacturer name). For your towing application I recommend going with the Curt option since it has a 900 lb Tongue Weight (TW) rating and a 6,000 lb Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating. This is higher than the 750 lb TW and 5,000 lb GTW rating on the Draw-Tite option. Even though you...

  • Trailer Wiring Needed for 2017 Chevy Traverse with Rear Air Conditioning Unit
  • Since your 2017 Chevrolet Traverse does not have the factory connector but does have a rear air conditioning unit I recommend first checking to see if you have the factory tow package. You can locate the plug for the Tekonsha T-One # 118270 at the rear passenger side as is shown in the attached installation video. If you don't have the factory tow package then you will want to go with the Hopkins # HM11141150. I spoke with my contact at Hopkins who said that he hasn't heard of having...

  • Recommended Wiring Kit for Towing with a 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • Out of the Curt # C56350, Tekonsha T-One # 118578, and Hopkins # HM11141820 wiring harness kits for your 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid I highly recommend going with the T-One option. The reason being that we have found the Tekonsha electronic equipment to last longer and work better than many other brands. The installation is fairly simple and only requires you to plug in the T adapters behind the tail lights, grounding a wire, and then run a hot lead up to the battery. I have attached a...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • For your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Class III # 75673 over the Curt Trailer Hitch Class III # C13206. They're very similar hitches with identical ratings so you really can't go wrong either way. But looking at each from the rear of the car the Draw-Tite sits back further and is less visible. I suggest a Class III hitch because a 2 inch receiver will have a lot more capabilities than a 1-1/4 inch such as bike rack and trailer ball mount...

  • Recommended Ball Mount With Minimum 7-1/2 inch
  • I recommend the Curt Class III Ballmount with 2 inch Ball, # C45036, for your application. This ball mount will meet all of the parameters in your owners manual. It's two inch drop fits within the parameters and it is 7-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. Unfortunately there are no adjustable ball mounts that meet Mercedes Benz requirements for your vehicle. To give you a mount that takes the clunk you mentioned away, I recommend the Anti-Rattle...

  • What All is Needed to Transport 5 Bikes on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 referenced in your question is a great product and will be perfect for transporting your 5 bikes, or any other accessories you may want to haul in the future. The trailer basically works as a Yakima roof rack on wheels, with 78 inch crossbars to provide attachment points for bike racks, cargo baskets and other roof-mounted products. First, to transport your 5 bikes on the trailer, you will need compatible bike racks to secure your bikes for travel. For...

  • Can the Motorcycle Carrier MT70101 be Used to Carry a Yamaha Street Bike on a 2013 Nissan Murano
  • I have some good news and bad news; the good news is that you are definitely on the right track of making sure that you are under the 400-lb Tongue Weight (TW) capacity of your Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13577. The bad news is that your 2013 Nissan Murano looks like it is the limiting factor instead of your Curt hitch receiver. Your Murano has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs and typically the TW is 10% of that making your TW capacity 350 lbs instead of 400. You will want to double check...

  • Recommended Options for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Ball Mount and Rock Tamers Mud Flaps
  • The Curt # C45456 has a length of 8-1/2" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. To allow you to us the Rock Tamers you have, I recommend the Gen-Y Tri-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches # 325-GH-064 which has a 9 inch center to center measurement but has a different shape to allow for the better fit. I don't know if your Rocktamers will fit with the extra 1/2 inch with the different shape or not, but wanted you to have all your options. The Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender...

  • Recommended Fit and Compatibility of Components for Hauling a Trailer with a 2005 Honda CR-V
  • I checked out all the parts you listed ( # 13535, # 118336, # C45030, # 63845, and # C21500) and good news they will all work together. I do have a few suggestions for you though. I would instead suggest the Draw-Tite hitch # 75690 over the Curt hitch because if you decide to transport anything like a bike rack or cargo carrier in the future you will need to use a stabilization strap # 18050 per Curt's warranty and with the Draw-Tite hitch you won't. Next suggestion is we offer a...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Ground Clearance for Towing and Carrying Bikes on a 2018 Outback Wagon
  • Adding a trailer hitch will affect the ground clearance on certain vehicles depending on how it installs. In the case of your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon it will affect the ground clearance a little due to the hitch receiver sitting under the bumper and rear fascia. The trailer hitch that will affect it the least and what I recommend using is the EcoHitch # 306-X7266. From the top of the inside of the receiver opening to the ground on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon is about 16" so the ground...

I am attaching an installation video on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder for you to get an idea of how the installation will go.

A sample installation video has been linked for you to check out. If you plan on using this trailer hitch for towing then you will also need wiring like the T-One # 118255 and a ball mount/hitch ball combination like the Curt Ball Mount and 2" Hitch Ball # C45036.

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

For the trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75699 which is a confirmed custom fit for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee so no drilling is required. The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 2" Drop # C45036 is a great option to use but you will want to consult the attached ball mount article to determine if the 2" drop is what...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2017 Dodge Durango R/T
  • Since you are wanting to keep your full size spare installed on your 2017 Dodge Durango R/T the trailer hitch that you need to use is the Draw-Tite # 75713. This has a Tongue Weight (TW) rating of 900 lbs and a Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating of 6,000 lbs. When used with a weight distribution system the TW stays the same but the GTW jumps up to 7,500 lbs. You will need to consult your owner's manual regarding your max towing capacity as it is typically lower than what the trailer hitch...

I have attached some installation videos and instructions for you to reference. When it comes to a ball mount the Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45036 that you referenced is also a great option and has received great reviews, but it may or may not be what you want for your application.

  • Recommendations to Tow a Trailer and 2 Bikes with a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i Limited
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75673 is what I recommend for you to install on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon as it can easily tow a 1,500-lb trailer and hold 2 bikes. You will want to check your owner's manual though about the max Tongue Weight (TW) of your Outback Wagon. From what I found online it looks like it has a TW capacity of 200 lbs which, since a trailer's TW should be 10-15% of the loaded trailer weight, could be an issue if you are wanting to carry bikes as...

  • Will the Curt T-Connector # C56332 Fit a 2017 Kia Sedona
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt who said that the Curt T-Connector # C56332 will fit your 2017 Kia Sedona whether you have the tow package or not. If you don't have the tow package you should still have the connectors. Check under your Sedona on the driver's side near the rear tire. You will either find the connectors there or a black box or panel that you can remove to get to the connectors. If you don't already have a trailer hitch then I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame...

  • Towing Weight Capacities for a 2006 Dodge Charger
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76145 is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Dodge Charger. Although it is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver that has a 4,500 lb Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating and a 675 Tongue Weight (TW) rating, you are wise to look into weight capacities for your vehicle. Most (but not all) of the time a trailer hitch is rated for higher weight ratings than the manufacturer has rated the vehicle for. This is to ensure that you can tow with the...

  • Best Ball Mount for 2005 Honda Pilot with a Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • All three ball mounts will fit into the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver that you mentioned. The next thing you need to do to make sure that the trailer will pull properly behind your 2005 Honda Pilot is to measure the hitch and coupler height and to determine the correct rise or drop for your trailer. The reason you need to find all of this out is so that you can ensure that you are keeping the trailer level while towing it. To determine the hitch height you need to make sure that your Honda...

  • Is the Sway Control on a 2017 Ford Escape Necessary for Towing
  • I checked the online version of the owner's manual for your 2017 Ford Escape and it looks like every 2017 Escape comes with the added sway control feature. It can be turned off in the information display if you choose to do so. It will not increase the weight capacity of your vehicle, but it can be helpful to help prevent some sway. The type of sway control that is integrated into the Escape is okay, but not what I would choose to use as a permanent sway control solution. The first...
