Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Fabrication Parts - Receiver Tube - E17 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number E17. This is the Curt Weld-On 2" Receiver which is going to be perfect for custom fabricated hitches. It's designed with the appropriately sized tubes for easy insertion of your ball mount or hitch mount accessories. The receiver opening is going to measure 2" by 2". It's also going to feature the nice forged collar that has a ProDesign as well as a raw finish over the entire unit. That's going to require less prep work when you are ready to weld this on for your installation. Again, 2" by 2" trailer hitch opening.

You're going to have your standard 5/8" pin hole diameter. This is going to be rated with a 5,000 pound gross towing weight, 500 pound tongue weight capacity. A few measurements to go over real quick. I'm going to be measuring the side plates here. They're going to give us an overall length 5-1/2", overall height 4-1/2". The overall length from edge to edge, looks like it's going to measure about 11".

Outside edge to outside edge, that's going to give us a measurement of 2-7/8". Inside edge to inside edge looks like it's going to measure about 2-3/8". That's going to do it for our review of part number E17. This is the Curt Weld-On 2" Receiver for Custom Fabricated Hitches. .

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1985 Ford F-250
    I do have an option for you but they do not offer a custom fit front mount trailer hitch for your 1985 Ford F-250. Instead, you would need to use something like the Curt Weld-On 2" Receiver part # E17 and then fabricate a cross tube and set of brackets to attach it to. This will be you only option in regards to a front mount trailer hitch but if you can tell me what you intend to use the trailer hitch for I would be glad to see if other options are available.

  • Recommended 2 Inch Receiver to Fabricate Receiver for Bike Rack on Off-Grid Trailer
    It sounds like maybe you need something like the Curt Weld-On 2" Receiver for Custom Fabricated Hitches # E17, which could be welded to the tube you're referring to and would give you a secondary 2" receiver. This receiver does have a 500-lbs tongue weight, but it should be noted that any time you extend a receiver away from the cross tube more than 9" that the tongue weight is reduced by approximately 50%. I've linked a review video of this part for you to check out.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2012 Chevy Suburban 2500 4X4
    The Curt Weld-On 2" Receiver for Custom Fabricated Hitches # E17 will allow you to have a receiver custom welded as I do not see that anyone manufacturers a front receiver for your 2012 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 4X4. This receiver collar is rated for a maximum trailer weight of 5,000lbs and up to 500lbs tongue weight when properly installed. I recommend finding a reputable shop in your area that has the ability to complete the hitch.

  • 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...

  • How to Mount a Removable Winch on a Trailer Using a Receiver Tube
    In order to create a removable winch mounting plate on your trailer I recommend using the Curt Weld-On 2" Receiver for Custom Fabricated Hitches part # E17 with the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate part # C31010. All you would need to do to use this combo is weld the receiver tube to your trailer where you would like to position the winch and then bolt the winch to the mounting plate. Unfortunately, we do not have any weld on 1-1/4" receiver tubes. However, the above 2" option...

  • Welding a 2 Inch Receiver to a Steel Plate on a 1998 GMC C/K Series Pickup Truck
    Reducer sleeve # 58102 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.

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Chrysler Town and Country
    For your 2016 Chrysler Town and Country the nicest trunk mounted bike rack we offer is the Thule OutWay part # TH45JV. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses only 2 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than the 4-6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The cables store inside the rack so there are no loose straps ends to flap around. The cables can also...
