Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40018 Review

Today were going to take a look at the Curt 2-inch hitch ball, part number C40018. This chrome hitch ball has a 2-inch diameter. It has a shank diameter of of an inch. It has a shank length of 2 1/8 of an inch. It fits a ball mount with a drawbar thickness of 3/8 of an inch to 5/8 of an inch, and it has a weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. Were going to bring in our ball mount with our trailer hitch demonstrator here and show you how this would be installed.

First you just slide the shank into the ball hole. Youll take the nut and washer which are included with this item, slide the washer up there, and then you will finger tighten the nut on there. Once you have that tightened as far as it will go youll then take your wrench and you can get some extra leverage using the wrench flats on the hitch ball, and then you would tighten that fully to use with your trailer and your coupler. That should do it for our Curt 2-inch trailer hitch ball, part number C40018.

Every part excellent quality. Perfect fit, all parts were exact for my vehicle. Watched the video on youtube for wiring and being a mechanic for over 50 years was able to connect signal lights all from driver side of harness. Instead of leaving plug inside trunk I wired through the rubber outlet to the back of the hitch ready for use. Very happy highly recommend etrailer. 434527

I was very suspicious how will it fit and suit Dodge Challenger. But when I received trailer hitch, and by they way it travelled across the planet to reach me, I was totally impressed with the quality, ease of installation and accessories which I ordered with it. I basically installed it myself with a help of a friend, it took about 30 minutes to fix it. It really saved me as I needed the trailer to transport my bike to the race track and I didn't want to change the car. So the conclusion, I own it for more than a year and have zero issues or complaints about the hitch or accessories. I used to travel long and short distances and in average I use it every second week. You barely can notice it when you remove drawbar so it is very good solution. 681810

I just can't believe my order was here the next day. I ordered it in the late afternoon on Monday and it was here Tuesday before 3:00. I was in disbelief but ecstatic. It was exactly what I ordered. I built a tiny sleeper and am getting it ready to take camping. I will take pictures after i install the receiver, ball, and pin. I was worried I wouldnt get it before the weekend. Thank you etrailer. This was the 2nd time I've ordered from your company and I definately won't hesitate to order from you in the future and I will highly recommend you to my friends and colleagues. 662879

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Ball

  • Recommendation for 1-1/4 Inch Ball Mount with 8 Inch Rise
    Based on the measurements you took on your trailer hitch and trailer coupler, you will technically need a ball mount that features a rise of around 8-1/2 inches for a completely level setup. Between the two ball mount options you mentioned, the Curt Class II Drawbar # C45014 will be the better option, as it provides a greater 5 inch rise. The highest rise ball mount we currently have available that will be compatible with your existing 1-1/4 inch Curt trailer hitch receiver is the Curt...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
    The available 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch options for your 2019 Jetta include the Curt round tube hitch # C11540 and the Draw-Tite model # 24978. The Curt offers easier installation but its cross tube will be visible under the bumper cover. The Draw-Tite hitch installation requires removal of the entire bumper fascia and the bumper itself but gives you a much more discrete appearance once installed. The linked photo shows the Draw-Tite hitch. Both hitches include all of the required mounting...

  • Do Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2017 Chevrolet Trax Include a Wiring Harness
    We do have two trailer hitch receivers to fit your 2017 Chevrolet Trax: a Curt # C11527 and a Draw-Tite # 36554. Neither of them include a wiring harness. As of right now we only carry one wiring harness for your Trax, the Tekonsha # 118751. It plugs into a factory connector that's in your rear cargo area under the floor cover and some interior paneling. Then you'll need to run a wire to the Trax's battery through the included fuse holder. The fuse is included as well. This harness...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2018 Hyundai Tucson Sel Plus
    When we research towing capacities we base it off of what the owner's manual says but for some unknown reason there are no online manuals available for a 2018 Hyundai Tucson. I did take a look at the Hyundai website and as you said it listed the SEL Plus as having a 2,000 lb towing capacity as opposed to the 1,500 lb capacity of the SE and SEL; however, it looks like the SEL Plus only has some interior features differentiating it from the SE and SEL so it would not make sense for the capacity...

  • Parts Needed to Tow 4 x 8 Utility Trailer with 2017 Volkswagen Jetta
    We do have light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches for the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta 4-door sedan that are shown on the linked page. Both share the same towing capacity of 2000-lbs. Since there are four different versions of the 2017 VW Jetta (the S, SE, SEL and GLI) to confirm your model's towing capacity you need to check your printed manual. Currently VW's website does not have online manual access due to them redesigning their application. I suggest the Curt Class I hitch # C11474 over...

  • Can a 2015 Dodge Dart Carry a Motorcycle on a Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier
    With that being said I definitely recommend not carrying your Honda motorcycle with your 2015 Dodge Dart. The carrier you're looking at, part # MT70101, is rated up to 400 pounds and from my research the bike has wet weight of 357 pounds. So I understand why you think you're okay. However, you're capacity is limited by the lowest rated component, and the Curt hitch, part # C11281, is a Class I hitch that's rated up to 200 pounds of tongue weight. Furthermore, your 2015 Dodge Dart is...

  • Is Curt Hitch # C12111 a Fit for 2017 Ford Escape and Good Choice for Towing Small Trailer

It has towing capacities of 3,500 lb trailer weight so it would easily handle the weight of your ATVs and lawn mower. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For a ball mount you'd want the # C45518 with hitch ball part # C40018 for a 2 inch ball or part # C40001 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. Then for trailer wiring the # 118715 is an easy to install...

  • Correct Ball Mount Recommendation to Tow Malone XtraLight Trailer with PT Cruiser and Curt Hitch
    You asked a great question about picking out the correct rise/drop ball mount for towing the Malone XtraLight Trailer part # MPG525G. Basically you want to go with the ball mount that has the correct rise/drop to allow the trailer to sit as level as possible. So when the Curt hitch part # C11132 is installed on your 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser it's going to have a distance of 11-1/4 inches from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground and the Malone trailer has a distance of 15 inches...

    For your 2017 Audi Q7, if you don't already have a hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76076. This hitch receiver is a black powder coat finish over and e-base coat for excellent rust protection. For your wiring, I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT if you don't have the factory tow package.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness for 2014 Subaru Forester
    When I put your 2014 Subaru Forester into our fit guide I did not get the same results you did. I get the # C13144 for a 2 inch receiver option and # C12100 as a 1-1/4 inch option. I get the same options when I type this into Curt's fit guide. I'm not sure if we had a glitch or what, but I am confident that either of these hitches I referenced will work well for you. The # C111813 is not a fit for your vehicle and is only a fit for 1993-2002 Toyota Corolla and Geo/Chevy Prizm models....

  • Can I Tow a Malone MicroSport Trailer with a Nissan Altima
    What that means is that the Malone MicroSport trailer, part # MPG460G, is level when the bottom of the coupler is 18 inches off the ground. To tow the trailer level you need a ball mount with a rise. Park your Nissan Altima on level ground and measure from the ground the inner top of the receiver hitch. When we installed the Draw-Tite hitch on an Altima we measured 10-1/4 inches. You'll likely be close to this but measure your car so you're sure. Then subtract your measurement from...

    There were two models of the Chevrolet Sonic lt in 2012. One is a 4-door sedan and the other model is a 5-door hatchback. If you have a 4-door sedan then the trailer hitch I recommend is part # 24876. This is a Class l trailer hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. For a 5-door hatchback I recommend part # 24878. This is also a Class l hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening.

    Rola Rail Extreme DFE Series Roof Rack # R5004 is rated for 110 pounds so it will not be the best option for your 2016 Ford Fusion and two 68 pound kayaks. The bars themselves are rated higher but the mounting feet in this roof rack is limited to 110 pounds.

  • Thickness of Platform for Hitch Ball on Curt Class I Drawbar
    The thickness of the platform on the Curt Class I Drawbar # C45021 where the hitch ball is installed is about 5/8". I have attached a photo to demonstrate this and you can see this referenced in the attached review video. For a 2" hitch ball you can use part # C40018 or for a 1-7/8" hitch ball you can use part # C40001. If you don't already have a pin and clip the part # F-4 is perfect for this application.

  • Tallest Rise 1-1/4 inch Hitch Ball Mount Availability
    When measuring for ball mount rise/drop needed you have to measure from the bottom lip of the coupler to the ground and not from the top like you mentioned. That means your trailer height is going to be more like 20 inches instead of 22 inches. That being said the closest ball mount we offer to what you need is going to be the part # C45028 which can do a rise of 5-3/8 inches. Then for a 2 inch ball you would want the part # C40018.

For a ball mount you'd then want the part # C45510, for a hitch ball # C40018 for a 2 inch ball or part # C40001 for a 1-7/8 inch. For trailer wiring you'd need the universal install kit part # C59236 which has been tested as fitting your vehicle.

  • Will a Class II Drawbar Fit Into the Class I Curt Hitch # C11080
    Curt states that Drawbar, # C45522, is the ball mount designed for use with Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C11080. Although the Curt Drawbar, # C45025, will most likely fit in your hitch, it was not designed for use with this particular hitch. If failure occurs when using this drawbar, Curt may void any warranty on the hitch.
