Review from a similar Class V Universal Weld-On Hitch in Heavy Duty Receiver Hitch


Very happy with this hitch. The size of the end plates matched the frame on our old truck and with the class V weight rating, our old truck can do a few other things around the farm now. Thank you.

Review from a similar Class V Universal Weld-On Hitch in Heavy Duty Receiver Hitch


This hitch was exactly what was needed for my landscaping customer's small dump body truck. It replaced the original custom hitch with only minor modifications to accommodate the cargo body. I have done considerable work for this customer over many years. No issues reported with this job. All good!! Thanks to Curt and etrailer for great products and stellar service. —

Review from a similar Class V Universal Weld-On Hitch in Heavy Duty Receiver Hitch


I called to ask what was the inside dimension of the big square and it was said to be 4 1/2" square, that wasn't even close, it was 3 5/8" square.
But I was lucky I needed 3 1/4 square. I'm modifying this to fit my fisher plow bracket so I have a front hitch to use around the yard. Nobody makes one. I own a machine shop so by getting this saves me a lot of work. So by receiving the wrong info I rating you less than EXCELLENT

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Tiffin Allegro Bus Motorhome
    We don't offer a custom hitch for your Allegro bus motorhome, so you'd need to use a weld-on universal hitch. I'd recommend the Curt # C37CR if the frame members are between 18 and 44 inches apart. If the frame spread is larger, use # C97CR which fits frame spreads up to 62 inches. Both hitches have a 2-1/2 inch receiver.

  • 10,000lb Hitch For A 2003 Trek Safari Motor Home
    Since there is not a custom fit hitch available for your 2003 Trek Safari Motor Home, a fabricated option is the only solution. I recommend the Curt Class 5 Universal Weld-on Hitch Item # C97CR. This is a universal hitch so it fits many different applications and has a 2000lb Tongue Weight and a 20,000lb Gross Towing capacity. Since we do not offer a universal class four hitch, here is a link to all of the universal hitches with the 10,000 weight capacity or above that you are looking for...

  • Welding Tips For Trailer Accessories
    Be sure to weld in a ventilated area and of course use gloves and eye protection. Make sure that the area is clean of any paint or rust. You can clean the area with a wire brush, but I recommend getting a wire bit for your drill to really get the bare metal showing. If you're welding something to your trailer that will take a couple of different passes I would recommend jumping around to prevent warping of the accessory or the trailer metal itself. If you're stick welding be sure to get...

  • Hitch For C5500 GMC Truck
    For a commercial vehicle such as the GMC C5500 you will need an universal hitch such as the Curt # C97CR Class-5, with 2-1/2” receiver, and fitting frame beams 18” to 62” in width with a 20,000 pound tow capacity. If you do not need one as wide you could select the 44” wide Curt # C37CR, or the 44” wide Curt # C99CR hitch with an 18” drop and 16,000 pound tow rating. I have included links to each of these items.

  • 2006 E-450 Super Duty Shuttle Bus Trailer Hitch Receiver
    For your 2006 Ford F-450 Shuttle Bus you are going to need to use a universal hitch. For this you will need to measure how wide your frame rails are apart on the rear of your bus. Then you will need to know how much drop from the frame rails to the bottom of the bumper is required for the hitch to fit. The Curt Class 5 Universal Weld-on Hitch # C47CR will fit frames that are 18"-44" wide and brackets have a 9" drop. The Curt Class 5 Universal Weld-on Hitch # C99CR will also fit frame...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit on 1998 Chevy 3500 Cab & Chassis
    A stake body should be referring to a cab and chassis, and we do have a trailer hitch receiver that fits a 1998 Chevy 3500 cab and chassis. You just need to make sure that your frame measures 34 inches outside to outside, and if it does then the correct hitch is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14082. If your '98 Chevy has a frame which is not 34 inches wide, you can still add a hitch, but it would need to be a universal weld-on application. The correct one would depend on the exact...

  • Highest Rated Hitch For A Camper
    I have included a link to the class III receivers designed for RV's and Campers like the Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver Item # C13701. These are weld on or bolt on receivers and have a 500 lb tongue weight and 5000lb gross towing capacity. The highest rated hitch receivers we offer like the Curt Class 5 Universal Weld-on Hitch Item # C97CR are universal hitches and are not specifically designed for RV's and Campers, but require them to be welded to the frame.

  • Parts Needed to Tow 1999 Jeep Cherokee With School Bus
    We do have some hitch solutions for you, but they'll need to be welded in place in order to install them, as none of the universal fit hitches we offer can be bolted on. What you'll need to go with is a universal-fit hitch designed for a service body truck, and in order to choose the correct one, you'll need to measure the needed drop, which is the vertical distance between the underside of the frame member and the lowest point of the rear bumper. You'd then choose the hitch with a drop...
