Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Accessories C45796 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45796. This is the Curt Extender for 2 inch receivers providing 18 inch extension. Has its own capacity of 3,500 pounds with a towing weight capacity of 350 pounds. Has a nice black powder coat finish which is going to help us stand up against rusting corrosion and it's going to fit your 2 inch by 2 inch hitch receiver, has a nice solid shank here on the back, it's not hollow, so this extender is very durable. Just keep in mind that when using the hitch extender, it will reduce your hitch's overall capacity by 50%. This extender is going to extend your trailer hitch receiver opening out from the rear view vehicle to avoid any of those obstacles that you need to clear. You're also going to be able to gain some extra clearance for your trailer and you're going to be able to mount your hitch route accessories without having to remove your rear mount and spare tire. Now to go over a few basic measurements, we have an overall length of about 32 3/4 of an inch. The distance from the center of 1 pin hole to the other is 18 inches, so that's where we get our 18 inch extension from.

The larger portion here of our extender measuring from the opening back to this point measures about 17 inches and the part that slides into our hitch measures right at 6 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the larger portion here of our extender measures about 3 1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of our extender measures about 3 inches. Now we'll go ahead and show you how this installs. What you do is take your extended and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin hole and then you'd slide in your hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those items are sold separately and you can refer to the Curt Extenders product page under related items to view those products. Just like that we'd be ready to load up our accessory and get on the road. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45796. That's the Curt Extender for 2 inch receivers providing 18 inches extension. .

I HAVE A JOHN DEERE GATOR AND IT WAS DIFFICULT CONNECTING TRAILERS TO THIS HITCH WITHOUT GETTING ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES.. NOT ONLY THAT BUT THE TRAILER HAD TO HAVE A LONG TONGUE. SINCE I PURCHASED MY C 45796 CURT EXTENDER FOR MY 2 INCH RECEIVER , I NOW CAN HOOK UP ANY TRAILER AND TOW IT SUCCESSFULLY AND HOOKING UP IS VERY EASY. NO MORE GETTING ON THE GROUND . I AM WELL PLEASED WITH THE CURT EXTENDER THANKS FOR QUICK DELIVERY 497994

Needed this item to be able to tow my boat behind my pick-up with 9 foot camper. Had put off towing because I thought I needed a very long extension bar coupled with a weight distribution system...which would not be compatible with my trailer anyways. So I gave up on the idea of towing with it, leaving the boat behind on trips for over ten years. That all changed when I perused the etrailer web site for solutions. Found the solution with the Curt 18" extension bar and the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch (RM-061). With a 12 inch ball mount on the end, and securing both with a pair of Roadmaster Hitch Quieters, it turned out to be perfect. I can move forward and turn either direction just past 45 degrees with out danger of a jack-knife event. My boat/motor/trailer weighs about 1,300 lbs, so I was well within the reduced weight limits imposed by using an 18" extension bar with the class III hitch. The Hitch Quieters were like "icing on the cake," eliminating 3/8" of horizontal and especially vertical "slop" and associated noise. The boat can go with me all the time now. 410693

Rock solid, heavy-weight, and inspires confidence. I ordered two and linked them together because I couldn't find something longer without spending a lot more and a complicated install. I had a simple problem to solve - a deep keel 22 foot sailboat at a boat ramp and I needed another few feet of tongue length to keep my tailpipe out of the water. I stop at the top of the ramp, hook up the two lengths, and I have just enough distance to keep the pipe out of the water. Of course I remove the extenders for any travel over the road. The two pieces together are very easy to handle as components and the price was much lower here than other vendors. And, did I mention that I ordered early one morning and in a different time zone and George J had it out the door in under 2.5 hours. I figure he processed my order right after he got to work and before he went to the coffee maker. Thanks George. 395167

Just what I needed to get get out past my flatbed. Used it the day it came (yesterday) with no problems. It will work until I can figure out a more permanent solution that does not affect my towing weight capacity. This piece is bomber solid and well made, and cheaper than making it myself. The staff at etrailer were fantastic. They called me right after making my order to check fitment and make sure I understood the capabilities of the product, sent me emails when it shipped (wicked quickly I may add). I have never written an on-line purchase review before, but etrailer earned it. Thanks for the very easy to use and detailed website, great customer service, quick shipping and friendly attitude. You will be my go to for all things trailering in the future. Cheers, Ben in Maine 495067

Everything was top notch with this purchase. Juanita T. was an excellent and helpful CSR and the product was exactly what I expected. The delivery schedule was spot on per Juanita. Kudos By the way I had previously tried to purchase this product elsewhere and I was strung along for three months. The extender is very well constructed and fits well in the receiver. Works for me.

Will that pull a small camper it is a 2007 layton model 151 ltd

It depends up on the loaded weight of the trailer and the capacity if the hitch. The extension reduces your hitch capacity by 50%, when you calculate that figure, compare it to the 350/3,500 pound capacity figure of the extension and abide by which ever is less. There should be an ID plate on the camper that list the GVWR or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. The trailer when fully loaded should weigh no more than the GVWR. To determine the weight of the trailer, you can either add the weight of all the items you put in it to the dry weight on the trailer ID plate or you can take it to a scale at a large fuel station and weigh it.

I bought this extender after a lot of looking around, this one does the trick!!! It is SOLID Square, not heavy wall tube, the only thing that might hurt this is a Atomic Bomb!!!!! I plan to tow my boat behind my truck with the tail gate down because the camper is 8', and my truck bed is 6'2", the 18" model was exactly what I needed. Shipping was fast, the whole buying experience was PAINLESS, will order from these folks without worry!! 303671

Prior to this order I bought an adjustable trailer hitch receiver22" to 72" wide for the rear of my RV fifth wheel that mounted great, but had to install it 18" inchs deeper on the frame. That's why I purchased the 18" long extender to bring it ever with the rear of the RV to tow a small trailer for my ATV. Everything I've bought from e-trailer has fit perfect and the best quality. Thank you, etrailer.com 223367

The Curt 18 inch extender arrived on time especially for this time of the year. It is seriously heavy duty, well constructed. It will be used on my Gator for towing a log splitter, will save my back big time for those familiar with the rear hitch receiver location on a Gator. I am sure I will find other uses for it on my P/U or MH. Great product at a fair price and shipped for free. How good is that? 456392

Extended my receiver almost to the end of the truck camper and with my drop hitch added it was the perfect length. It looks to be powder coated and the end going into my truck is solid so I don't need to ever worry about the holes "stretching". The end going to the trailer is banded with a collar. Great quality at the price. Specified expedited shipping and received it in three business days. 268995

This extender is one heavy duty piece of gear. The tenon (male) end is solid steel and should provide lots of confidence, considering the leverage that can be applied at the ball end of this extension. The finish is thick and even. eTrailer service was excellent. A small snafu with the shipment was resolved quickly and painlessly. That's the mark of a good company. 219858

The hitch part is solid square stock and not tube which I didn't expect and the receiver is rather hefty with plenty of lip around the end of the tube for reinforcement. I have a short box Chevy and an 8 ft slide in camper and needed to extend past the down tailgate for the toy trailer. This works just right. 290440

Received my 18" extender for my 2" receiver in 3 days. It's going to work perfectly, enabling me to haul bikes with the Thule spare me bike rack at the same time as cargo on a luggage rack at the end of the 18" extender on my Jeep Wrangler. Product is super heavy, therefore, super durable. 390989

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Longest Available 2-Inch Hitch Extensions for Use with Truck Bed Camper
  • For a 2-inch hitch the longest hitch extensions we offer are the 60-inch # TLE1560 and 48-inch # TLE1548, both from TorkLift. However, these only work along with a TorkLift brand SuperHitch dual-receiver type hitch that has the strength and included safety chains to handle the extra stress from the trailer load being further from the hitch. To use one of these you will need to also install a SuperHitch. The longest standard 2-inch hitch extension that will work in any hitch is 18-inches,...

  • Hitch Extender to Tow a Trailer for 2011 Ford F-450 with 2017 Mammoth Camper in Bed
  • You might not need a hitch extender. It is possible that a long ball mount will have the length needed to provide clearance for towing the trailer. Ball mount # 80232 measures 16 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight and it has a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop. It fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver so if you have the factory 2-1/2 inch receiver you would also need to use a reducer sleeve such as # C45405. A...

  • Comparing Reese and Curt 18 Inch Hitch Extenders
  • One of the biggest differences between Reese adapter # RP11004 and the Curt model # C45796 is the warranty. Curt ball mounts and extenders are generally covered for 1 year. The Reese model though has a limited lifetime warranty. On both the shank that fits into the 2 inch receiver is solid. There isn't a difference in the steel wall thickness; you're looking at approximately 1/8 of an inch. Regarding the tongue weight capacity reductions: The Reese extender reduction has changed...

  • Roller Bunk Compatibility with Aluminum Boats and Trailer Tongue Extension Options
  • Our roller bunk manufacturers do not exclude aluminum boats, however, one issue that you could run into when using roller bunks on an aluminum boat is that the only support the boat's hull will have is the small surface of the rollers. If the boats hull is not strong enough to support it's weight on the small surface area of the rollers, then you could see dimpling on the hull from the rollers. A carpeted bunk provides more surface area for the boats hull to rest on. I spoke with my...

  • 36 Inch Hitch Extender for a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • I do have options for you but you cannot install two of part # C45796 together to get a total of 36". Doing so would completely diminish your trailer hitches weight capacity. The most cost effective solution I have for you would be to use part # RP45292 for 24"-34" or part # RP45018 for 41"-48". However, both of these options will require a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15860. The best solution I have for you to get a 36" hitch extension...

  • Is 24 Inch Extension Available for Class IV 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2008 Dodge Ram 3500
  • The longest hitch extender that is available for the Class IV 2 inch hitch on your 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 is going to be an 18 inch like part # C45796. Please keep in mind that using a hitch extension is going to reduce your hitch's overall capacity by 50 percent. For a 24 inch extension your Ram would have to be equipped with a Torklift Hitch, # TLD1102-30 for Ram with factory hitch or # TLD1101 for Ram without factory hitch. You could then use # TLE1524 for the extender.

  • Availability of Extra-Long Ball Mount and Hitch Extension for 2-Inch Hitches
  • Hitch extenders such as the Curt 18-inch model # C45796 and the others shown on the linked page can give you more space between vehicle and trailer but they do so at the cost of reducing your hitch's capacity by half. This is true for virtually all such adapters. There are longer extensions that do not reduce capacity but these extenders such as the 4-foot TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension # TLE1548 require that your tow vehicle have their specialized dual-receiver SuperHitch.

  • Extending a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch 30 Inches to Clear In-Bed Camper when Towing a Boat Trailer
  • For a regular extension that fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver the longest available is going to be 18 inches such as # C45796. In order to reach at least 30 inches you would then need to use a ball mount that measures at least 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. But I do not know how much rise or drop you need to tow the trailer level. So what I did was include a link to the fixed ball mounts that would be long enough, as well as a link...

  • Adapters and extenders like the 12-inch MaxxTow # MT70024, the 7-inch Brophy # HE06 and those from Blue Ox do make it convenient to gain clearance in some applications but they also have the unavoidable negative side-effect of reducing your hitch's capacity by as much as 50-percent.

So it will fit into a 2-1/2-inch hitch but it then reduces the available opening on the other end to 2-inches. For a 24-inch application the extension will need to use the rear hitch pin hole for installation. At that length it has a 6K GTW rating....
