Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Fabrication Parts - Receiver Tube - E-11 Review

Today we're going to review Part Number E-11. This is Curt 12" long combo bar with the 2" trailer hitch receiver opening in an unpainted finish. This part is designed for use in fabricating under cover receiver hitches, when there's no receiver available. It is made of a cold formed structural tubing. It is sized and punched to fit all common weight distributing hitch ball mounts, or utility ball mounts. Has a forged collar, as you can see right on the opening here.

Again, it's an unpainted, raw finish. The reason that do that; it's ideal for welding, because it will save on your prep time during installation. A few dimensions on this; overall length again from edge-to-edge, going to be right at 12". Again, the opening is going to be 2" x 2". The measurement of the hitch pin hole from the very front to the center of the hitch pin hole is going to be right at 2 1/2". That should do it for the review on part number E-11. The Curt 12" long combo bar with the 2" trailer hitch receiver opening in an unpainted finish.

Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver - Unpainted - E-11

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (71 Customer Reviews)


I have a Billy Goat Leaf Loader swing away hitch mount but it didn't come with a hitch to pull a trailer I have a 4x8 open trailer (2000 lb max). So I decided to weld a hitch to it. I also used 1/4 inch thick metal to reinforce the hitch and used etrailer's Safety Chain Loop for Hitch Receivers. I used mig welder with 120amps and had to make extra beads, 3 to 4 beads in some spots i primed it and painted it works great! Thank You etrailer!!!

Omar M.


its holding up and works great! still towing a 4x8 open trailer with it! No rust coming through.. very Solid and Strong


Grade A product. Fast shipping! I bought 2 of these to weld on the back of an off road mini camper i am building. They will be supports for stabilizing jacks. 3' square 2 x 2 will slide up and down in them with a foot pad welded to the bottom.

Allen C.


I used these as leveler guides a year ago. I dont think i will ever have to replace them as long as the off rd trailer last. They are very heavy duty quality. I would post a picture of them in use on finished product if i could.


I got 2 of these receiver's for a rear snow pull plow that I made out of a 9' John Deere snow plow that was used on local airport , used the receivers to modify a Kubota tractor 3 point hitch , it works out great no more snow shoveling by the doors back up and pull in away .


The product is heavy duty. The quality of the weld work is exceptional. Would recommend this product. Packaged well. Bought a curt rubber end cap. Which by the way is another exceptional product (great quality rubber cap) drilled a few holes painted it and works like a champ. Now I can build a carrier for front of my pickup.


We added this receiver to our bumper for front mounting.
Etrailers is our first choice for all trailer accessories.


Turned out awesome, Can Am said they don't make receivers for the OUtlander model so I did!


Quite pleased with etrailer ball hitch accessories which I am using on a spindle wheel motorcycle carrier behind a fifth-wheel trailer.....



They are all serving their intended function just fine. Thanks


I made a receiver hitch that would bolt onto my camper bumper. I needed this receiver to make the hitch. It worked perfectly.



Thoroughly pleased with the hitch I made. Works great.


Product was exactly as advertised. Shipping was fast and pricing was good! I would purchase from this seller again without hesitation!!!

I will be using this product to create a Spare Tire Carrier for my motorhome. :-))



I used this product to build a spare tire rack in preparation for our trip to Alaska. Your product was tough and durable allowing me to weld the two pieces together forming a receiver for the tire rack.


I purchased this to weld to the rear of the frame on my 30 ft RV trailer so that I could install my bike rack. It was the perfect size for my application and is still in use today with the bike rack installed in it.


Nice receiver, I welded these to my welding trailer for moving my vise, bench grinder and other accessories around. With small 1.5" welds with 1.5" spaces down each side makes for a solid bond and no warping so hitch still slides smoothly.


Heavy duty, well-made. I bought the unfinished combo bar so that I could weld a coupler to it (I was assembling a device to make it easier for RV dealers to service my travel trailer that features a Hensley Arrow unit). It works like a charm, and was easier to assemble in its raw form. Also easy to paint after assembly.


Hitch receivers arrived as promised. The product was much better than I expected. It's just an extra receiver to weld on an existing hitch, but it has a brass collar at the receiving end...very nice, and an extra bonus. I will go to first for any other parts I need.


I bought two 2" receivers 12" long to customize my snow plow for support on each side of the frame. I ordered them and got them less than a week along with e-mails up dating me on the status of delivery. I am very happy with the quality of the product and the service I recieved. Thanks etrailer.


It was exactly as advertised and what i was wanting to modify a hitch. The hitch on my Mercedes station wagon wasn't long enough to clear bumper cover so replacing 8"receiver tube with this was exactly correct length.


It has a really nice forged steel collar around the outside unlike the typical doubled up tube that most receivers use. it will make my custom hitch look great. well worth what I thought was a premium price.


Didn't notice before I bought it, but the support protection ring at the opening is a cast piece, nicely rounded and smooth for a professional install and less likely to yield scrapes when reaching around to hook up chains. As such it is also a complete loop, no joints, and it's welded top and bottom to receiver so it won't pop off if it were to scrape some concrete here and there. Some that I looked at were welded only on one side.


Product was just what I was looking for. The shipping was fast and the communication was great!

Alan H.


All good. No problems.


product was as described and shipped quickly. was just what i needed.


Great Product worked out perfectly for the bike rack project for my RV


Product was exactly as described. Shipping was extremely fast. Will purchase another to make a spare tire holder.


I have ordered a few things. The first time i thought the service was extraordinary because it was my first order, I was wrong the people there constantly exceed my expectations! My order was shipped before it was originally scheduled and arrived 2 days before it was supposed to which gave me more time to make the repair. The parts i ordered were packed extremely well and the quality is hands down the Best! I look here before i go anywhere else. Now that's a great place to buy from.


Product was built well. Delivered earlier than expected and it fit my application perfectly. Thank you very much!


It’s a square tube !?


Bought receiver to fabricate a hitch for my tractor. It's a piece of steel but exactly what I needed. eTrailer has always had competitive prices and great service. Very happy.

See what our Experts say about this CURT Hitch Fabrication Parts

  • Outside Diameter of the Curt Combo Bar # E-11
    The outer tubing of the Curt part # E-11 is 2-1/2 inches by 2-1/2 inches. This would fit well in a 2-1/2 inch hitch, but this is not the intention of this product so I can't really recommend you use it like that since it never has been tested. Especially considering the capacities you are looking for.

  • Will a Class IV Ball Mount Fit 12 Inch Combo Bar # E-11
    A Class IV trailer hitch receiver should still have a 2 inch square opening so a Class IV ball mount would work in combo bar # E-11. The combo bar does not have a rating so the entire fabricated hitch would need to be confirmed to have the capacity to match or exceed the ball mount you are using by whomever is fabricating it.

  • What Are the Gross Towing and Tongue Weight Capacities of Curt Combo Bar # E-11
    The Curt Combo Bar with 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-11 does not carry a specific tongue weight or towing capacity because these ratings are entirely dependent on the specific installation. The surfaces it is welded to and the manner of installation will be the determining factors in its actual capacity. I verified with Curt that this item carries no specific ratings since it is a general-purpose item.

  • Using a Snow Plow on 1993 Dodge Dakota
    Your best bet would be to contact a local metal fabrication shop and have them fabricate one for you. You could use a receiver tube like # E-11.

  • Custom Fabricating a Front Mounted Hitch when Custom Fit Is Not Available
    For your 1992 GMC Vandura 3500 there is not a front mounted hitch from any of our manufacturers confirmed to fit. If you want to add a front hitch you will need to have one custom fabricated. I recommend using the Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver - Unpainted # E-11 to get you started and ensure it will be compatible with accessories. I've linked the page to our hitch fabrication parts to assist.

  • Availability of a Combo Bar with 2 Inch Opening Made of 1/4 Inch Steel Tubing
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Curt combo bar # E-11 and a Hidden Hitch combo bar # 80818. The hidden Hitch bar is 1/4 inch steel tubing and the Curt bar is slightly less, about 0.21 inches. Going with a Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite, or Reese combo bar should get you closer to what you need. Otherwise a machine shop should be able to fabricate a bar to your specifications. I made a short video showing the measurements for you.

  • Options to Add 2-Inch Receiver Tube to Car Lift for Use with Winch Mount
    We have not before had another customer inquire about your specific application but we do have hitch fabrication parts that might work for you. Please see the linked page. Based on the substantial material of your lift a weld-on part like the 12-inch Curt Combo Bar # E-11 or the 6-inch # E-9 might be the most direct way to add the 2-inch receiver you want for your winch mount. I suggest making a call to the manufacturer of the lift system just to make sure they have no issues with welding...

  • Replacement RV Trailer Hitch Compatible with Workhorse Chassis
    We don't have a specific V shaped option compatible with your Workhorse Chassis. The only options we have a straight bars like Multi-Fit Motorhome Trailer Hitch, 24" - 46" wide # 5350. For your application, it sounds like you will need to have a shop make something custom for you. I recommend starting with the Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver - Unpainted # E-11 and having something custom welded for your application. If you were to alter something like the etrailer Trailer...

  • Recommended Combo Bar With 2 Inch Receiver Opening To Weld To Horizontal Crossbar
    The flanges on part # E17 are spaced 2-3/8 inches apart and designed to be welded to a bar that fits between them. We also have a couple combo bars that may work better for you. The first is part # E-9. This is a 6 inch combo bar that has a 2 inch receiver opening and a collar. The next combo bar we offer is part # E-11. This bar measures 12 inches long and it also has a 2 inch receiver opening and a collar attached. Since you said you are wanting to weld it to a horizontal cross...

  • Solution for Needing 2 inch to 2 inch Hitch Tube Adapter
    While we don't have exactly what you are looking for you could use the Combo Bar part # E-11 which is a 12 inch section of 2 inch hitch tube that you could put a second hitch pin hole in by drilling a second hitch pin hole.

  • Can Bulldog Winch Hitch Mount Storage Bracket # BDW20154 be Used when Operating the Winch
    The Bulldog Winch Hitch Mount Storage Bracket # BDW20154 is meant to just hold a winch on a hitch mounted winch mount. It isn't meant to be used while using the winch or as an attachment point itself. What you could do though is weld on a combo bar, # E-11, and use that since it is rated for carrying weight.

  • 12 inch Long Hitch Tube Recommendation that has a 2 inch Opening
    The Brophy Hitch Reducer # HR26 has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. I have a better solution for you since this was not designed for welding to a bumper. For a product that is very similar that is designed to be welded and used as a hitch opening check out the Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-11. This is also 12 inches long. Check out the review video I attached as well. When installed on your bumper it will have the same capacity as the bumper as long as it is welded...

  • Can Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount D210 be Used with a Hitch Mount Winch Carrier
    Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 was meant for accessories such as bike racks or cargo carriers. The force of a line pull from a winch may be too much for the receiver portion of the D210. What I recommend is to make a mount using a combo bar such as # E-11. Weld this guy in place as much as possible on the trailer. The more contact with the mounting surface the better.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible With 1989 Chevy G30 RV On Cutaway Van Frame
    For your 1989 Chevy Van Cutaway, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 41121. If this will not fit with the waste water tank, then I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. If these brackets won't fit, you will need to make a completely custom hitch made by a professional welder. If this is the case, they often like beginning with the Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Would Bulldog Winch BDW15019 Mount to Trailer Floor and Work Well to Load 2,500 lb Car
    The Bulldog Winch part # BDW15019 would easily pull a 2,500 lb race car into an enclosed trailer. It has a 4,400 lb capacity which would make easy work of that weight. Bulldog winches are very reliable too. What a lot of people do to mount a winch to the floor of a trailer is use a hitch mount like the part # C31010 and then fabricate a hitch opening to the floor of the trailer like the # E-11. The hitch mount route allows the winch to easily be removed from the trailer if needed as well.

  • Option for Mounting Electric Trailer Winch to Floor of Car Hauler Trailer
    What a lot of people do to mount a winch like the Superwinch Tiger Shark Series # SW1595200 to the floor of a trailer is use a hitch mount like the part # C31010 and then fabricate a hitch opening to the floor of the trailer like the # E-11. The hitch mount route allows the winch to easily be removed from the trailer if needed as well.

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The closest adapter we have to what you need is the Curt hitch adapter part # C45048. This fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch and provides a 2 inch hitch opening but it's minimum length is 24 inches. The only other pre-drilled option is the part # HR26.

  • Option for Mounting Winch in Toy Hauler Cargo Area Floor
    What a lot of people do to mount a winch like the Superwinch Tiger Shark Series # SW1595200 to the floor of a trailer is use a hitch mount like the part # C31010 and then fabricate a hitch opening to the floor of the trailer like the # E-11 welded to the frame or a crossmember of it. You'd have to cut a hole in the floor to accomplish this. The hitch mount route allows the winch to easily be removed from the trailer if needed as well.

  • Welding a 2 Inch Receiver to a Steel Plate on a 1998 GMC C/K Series Pickup Truck
    Reducer sleeve # C45405 is made of steel. The same steel used to make trailer hitches. The wall thickness is 1/4 but varies slightly from sleeve to sleeve. This reducer sleeve is not really meant for the purpose you want. I have a better option for you. You could use a hitch fabrication part such as # E-9, # E-11, # 2852, # 80818, or # E17. The ones that are raw steel would be much better for welding and they are designed for applications like you are describing.

  • Part Needed to Install Towing Style Hitch Bike Rack
    It sounds like you may have a towing type bike rack like the Swagman Traveler XCS # S64664. This type of rack does indeed have a box-like attachment point that is intended to slip over the shank of a ball mount like the Curt item # D-4 before the ball mount is installed in the 2-inch hitch receiver tube. We do offer extra-long ball mounts like # EA40, which measures 15-3/4-inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. This would give you the 12-inches of room...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2012 Toyota Prius V Compatible with Thule 4 Bike Rack
    The Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-11 will work with a 4 bike rack for your vehicle if you have proper mounting and welding done. My recommendation is to instead use the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" # 306-X7192 which is confirmed to fit. You can then use the Thule Hitching Post # TH934XTR or any of the other Thule 4 bike racks I've linked. If the rack you choose does not come with locks, I recommend the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device...

  • Solution for Class V Hitch on 2011 Fleetwood Expedition Motorhome
    For hitch fabrication we only offer the receiver tube like the # E-11 or # C49511. You would need to take this to a local fabricator and they would be able to fashion a hitch and brackets that will fit your 2011 Fleetwood Expedition Motorhome. The other option would be to use one of the universal Class V hitches we have listed for your motorhome. We have the Curt # C47CR with a 9" drop and the Curt # C99CR with an 18" drop. Both options have a 2" receiver. The # C37CR and # C87CR are...
