The shipping was quicker than I expected. However, the bumper hitch didn't work well with my 1993 Nissan pickup with its step bumper. My bumper is too light and the mounting surface of the E-3S hitch is bowed, so it tended to try to pull my bumper apart in tightening. If you have a heavy bumper plate to bolt the hitch to, it should work great. 168903

For the price this is well worth it. The staff was very fast to respond to any questions i had. I am only using this for a bike rack and it worked perfectly. If you have to drill all holes in your bumper, make sure you are using a drill with a cord. The batteries will not last. I would def buy another product from this firm. This was a great quality product. 130470

Ask the Experts about this Curt Bumper Hitch

  • Will Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch Fit for 2019 Ford Ranger
    The Curt 2" Trailer Hitch - Bumper Mount # E-3S is a universal type of fit with top bolt holes that measure 6" apart on center while the bottom holes measure 8-3/4" apart on center. If you don't have those measurements you would need to "mark and drill holes for two 3/4" bolts and two 1/2" bolts" according to the linked installation instructions. This would not be a very stable or secure hitch so I very strongly recommend instead going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13417 which...

  • Trailer Hitch Needed To Tow a Bass Boat With a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado
    I think you meant to say that your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado has a towing capacity of 3,500 and are wanting to make sure a trailer hitch rated for 5,000 lbs could be used. If that is the case then yes but you will always need to abide by the weakest rated component which is your vehicle. Therefore, you can tow your bass boat trailer no matter what trailer hitch you are using assuming the trailer is under 3,500 lbs which is what you said your vehicle's towing capacity was. Please note,...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500
    There's a chance the Curt hitch part # E-3S would fit your 2010 Chevy Silverado but since this is a universal style hitch that's never been fit tested on your truck we can't guarantee that. We do have hitches for your Silverado though that are a confirmed fit. For example we have the etrailer hitch part # E98849 which has a 6,000 lb trailer capacity and attaches to the truck frame instead for a much more secure mount.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Compatible with 1989 Jeep Comanche
    The Curt 2" Trailer Hitch # E-3S has holes that are 7-3/4 inches apart if you view the video at the 1:20 mark. It is a confirmed fit for your 1989 Jeep Comanche as is the # C19031 which has a 10-1/2 inch on center bolt pattern. Based on your measurements, I recommend using the # E-3S hitch your mentioned with uses 3/4 inch bolt on the wider part and 1/2 inch bolts on the narrower mounting holes. It is made to fit your bumper, but you still may need to enlarge the holes using a rotary...

  • Which Hitch Fits 2008 Lexus GX-470
    We have a custom fit Curt hitch part # 13445 which is a fit for your 2008 Lexus GX 470 but the # E-3S is designed for attaching to the bottom of truck bumpers so it would not fit your vehicle. The # 13445 attaches directly to the bottom of the vehicle frame which gives you a very solid connection.

  • Fit of Curt 2-Inch Bumper-Mount Hitch E-3S on Step Bumper of 2011 Toyota Tacoma
    I got a sample of the Curt 2-Inch Bumper-Mount Hitch # E-3S from our warehouse so I could re-check the size and spacing of the mounting holes. The larger oval holes that accept the 3/4-inch hex bolts measure 3/4-inch x 1-1/4-inch. Their two outside edges are 9-3/4-inches apart and their two inside edges are spaced at 7-1/4-inches apart. This means you should have enough bolt clearance with your bumper's 8-inch center-to-center hole spacing. Those holes will need to be large enough to accept...

  • Curt Hitch that Fits 1992 Toyota Pickup Deluxe
    We have custom fit trailer hitches for your 1992 Toyota truck like the Curt Class III part # 13086 which will fit and work well, but the Curt # E-3S is a universal style hitch that doesn't have vehicle fit info so we can't promise it could fit.

  • Recommended Hitch Solution for Carrying Bicycle on Rear of RV with C-Channel Bumper
    The Curt # E-3S hitch you mentioned is recommended for use on a truck step bumper, as shown in the provided diagram. A bolt-on hitch like the Ultra-Fab # UF35-946401 would be a better choice. This hitch is designed to fit bumpers that are up to 4-1/2 by 4 inches. The bolt on receiver has a 200 lb capacity, but you'll need to check with the RV manufacturer to determine the capacity of the bumper. You'll need to abide by whichever capacity is lowest. I'd also recommend using a bike rack...

  • Hidden Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Toyota Tacoma
    I think that your best bet would be to install a hitch that installs onto the frame of your 2002 Toyota Tacoma, like a Draw-tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75078. Not only will you have a much higher towing capacity, you will not have to make any permanent modifications to your vehicle bumper that might void the warranty of the vehicle. I attached installation instructions and a review video for this product for you to check out also. To complete your towing setup you may be interested...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Tacoma
    I have a much better solution for you than the Curt Hitch part # E-3S. You would want to go with a custom fit hitch instead like the part # 13323 as it will bolt directly to the frame and provide you with a much stonger and easier to install hitch than the # E-3S that would require you to use all 4 mouning holes. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball...

  • Can Bumper Mount Hitch Work With 2018 Chevy Colorado LT Factory Step Bumper Hitch
    As long as you have full access to the underside of the bumper mounting holes, through the step bumper, and they measure 8-3/4 inches center to center then you may be able to mount the Curt bumper mount hitch # E-3S without removing the step bumper. However, when speaking with my contact at Curt, they mentioned this type of hitch is meant for RV's. He also confirmed that in most cases, the factory bumpers would not fit this hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2007 Ford Ranger
    I have a hitch solution for your 2007 Ford Ranger, but the part # E-3S is not going to fit and would not be your best choice. You would need to go with a frame mounted hitch custom fit for your vehicle. For that you would want the part # 13138. This will mount to the frame of your truck and will give you a hitch opening right under the bumper. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Will Using Ball Mount with a Rise/Drop with Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch E-3S Decrease Hitch Capacity
    It sounds like you are talking about using a ball mount that has a rise in the shank of 5 to 6 inches. Using a ball mount in the rise or drop position does not decrease the gross trailer weight of tongue weight capacities of Curt trailer hitch # E-3S. It is likely that the bumper of your vehicle is rated lower than the hitch. Typically, bumpers, if rated for towing, max out at 3,500 pounds. You will need to check the owners manual of the vehicle or the bumper manufacturer if aftermarket...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for the Step Bumper on a 2010 Ford Ranger
    If the bumper itself has a hole for a ball then you could just use the bumper to tow. Consult the owners manual for the capacity (usually up to 3,500 pounds on many applications, the owners manual should have the correct information). If you need to add a receiver then a hitch like # E-3S is going to be the best option. Take a look at the picture I have included to see the mounting hole dimensions. I have also linked the instructions for you. I have also included a link to the frame mount...

  • How To Determine Towing Capacity of an RV Bumper that is 4 Inch Square 1/8 inch Thick Steel

For your 2006 Saturn Vue, I instead recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 15391.

  • Using Spacers to Install CURT Trailer Hitch # E-3S on a Step Bumper
    The CURT Step Bumper Trailer Hitch, # E-3S, comes with some square spacers, part 5 in the instructions linked for you, just in case the bumper does have that protrusion on the underside of the bumper. These spacers are 1/4 inches thick. If you are using these and still have 1/8 of a gap, a slightly thicker spacer can be used as long as you make sure to tighten the bolts as specified in the instructions.

The wider holes, closest to the receiver opening, are 1-1/4 inches wide and accept a 3/4 inch diameter bolt. The bolt holes measure 10-3/4 inches at their widest points and 7-1/4 inches at their closest point. With the bolts set at the widest point, they measure 9 inches apart on center and 8 inches apart at the closest point.

  • Can the Bumper Mounted Trailer Hitch be Installed Under the Step Bumper of a 2000 Ford Ranger
    I spoke with my contact at Curt, the manufacturer, about the Bumper Mounted Hitch, # E-3S, and the compatibility with your 2000 Ford Ranger. He stated that the total width, side to side, is just under 14 inches. From the front of the receiver opening to the back of the plate is 6 inches. The plate itself measures 4 inches front to back. The hitch can be mounted under the step bumper if you have mounting holes that measure 8-3/4 inches from center to center on your bumper.

A better solution for your towing needs would be the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, item # 75607, which is designed specifically for your 2005 Colorado.

Instead you would need a frame mounted trailer hitch with a higher capacity like the Curt part # C14357.
