Video Transcript for Curt RV Hitch 13703 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs. Now, this universal hitch is designed for use on RVs and motor homes. It gives you a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver opening, so it's going to be great for hauling your RV approved accessories such as bike racks, hitch mounted cargo carriers and other similar accessories as well, as well as for towing. When it comes to the maximum gross trailer weight rating that's going to be 3,500 pounds with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. Please note that this unit is not approved and not designed for weight distribution systems. It does feature these heavy-duty side brackets. These are going to allow for a maximum adjustability, so you can see here that these side brackets slide along that main body tube.

That way you can set it to the width that you need. It's going to feature your pre-drilled holes. That way you can easily get that bracket secured to the main body whenever you find the width that you need for your application. It's going to come with all the necessary installation hardware, and the hardware to get the bracket secured to the main body tube. That way it's steady and secure when you're ready to install it on your RV, motor home, or camper. The unit's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to feature a black powder coated finish which is very durable.

It's going to last a long time. It's going to resist rust and corrosion, ensuring that the unit doesn't get harmed by the elements. It's going to resist sun damage so it's not going to fade. It's just going to look good for a really long time. Now, when it comes to the minimum frame width that this can accommodate, that's going to be 22 inches. Maximum frame width is up to 72 inches, so this will work for any width between 22 inches all the way out to 72 inches, so it's a very versatile universal hitch.

It's designed to work on box frame, C channel frame, or I beam frame applications. Another neat feature about the unit is you can actually, if you have enough room at the mounting location you can actually position the tube mounts toward the front or rear, which for your application is going to put the hitch body in the best location for the clearance that you need. The unit features strong, secure all frame attachment, so that paired with the solid steel construction really helps it increase strength and overall safety. Again, your receiver tube opening measures 2 inches by 2 inches. You're going to have a 2 1/2 inch measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the opening of the receiver tube. It's got that nice rolled collar right there that goes around, but it does have a flush opening. Your pin hole diameter is 5/8 of an inch.

Hitch pin and clip or hitch lock, those items are sold separately, so if you're in need of those you can find them here at etrailer.com. It's also got the safety chain loop brackets welded on there. Those holes right here, one located on each side for your safety chain connections, they measure 1 inch front to back, 1 5/8 inch side to side. It's going to feature a class III rating. The bracket thickness for the side plates and for the safety chain loops, that's a 1/4 inch thick steel. I do want to spend some time just going over the measurements here of these brackets. You're going to notice that on these brackets we have four holes. Also, there's going to be two holes, one right here and one right here, so you would attach coming up that way as well. I just want to give you the measurements of those real quick. The actual bracket has an overall width measurement of about 12 inches. From very bottom to very top measured about 12 7/8 of an inch, and the mounting area right here has a height measurement of about 4 7/8 of an inch. The mounting holes up and down are separated on center by 2 inches, and then side to side separated on center by 7 1/2 inches. Then these holes here that I pointed out, center on center, those are separated on center by about 10 inches. The unit is covered with a limited lifetime warranty. Now, you need to be aware that all non-trailer loads like bike racks and cargo carriers that are applied to this product must be supported by auxiliary stabilizing straps, which are going to be sold separately. The main hitch body tube can be trimmed, so this can be cut. That way that the ends are flush with the frame brackets. After trimming you want to be sure to coat the bare metal with paint, that way it's protected against rust and corrosion. Again, all the necessary installation hardware is included, but if you want to weld this on just keep in mind that all welding surfaces must be cleaned to bare metal. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch for RVs.

The product, shipping and customer service were great. Don't expect this to be a 1 hour job though unless everything is prepped. I installed on a Jayco 243 5er with a boxed frame. Some trimming of water tank cover required. Also found on this 2 in wide frame that trimming the bolts by 3/8 in. helped in fishing the bolts through. One person install, just a little longer than planned. Good heavy duty unit. 129031

Hello PaulI also happen to have a Jayco 243 RKS 5er. Mine is a 1998. My water tank is located at rear of trailer.I am concerned that the water tank would pose a problem for install. Since the frame a is a box style, wouldnt the bolts have to be 3-4 long to pass through box frame? Do you have any pics and suggestions on the install? If you could email me some pics or post them to your post that would be much appreciated.Thanks!!!

Chuck N.The bolts do not go all the way through the frame, only the outside. The bolts are fished through a hole you will drill with a hole saw on the inside at the rear of the water tank. A special fish tool is included. The demo video and instructions cover it pretty well. Also note on my original review that cutting a small amount off the bolts will facilitate fishing them through. With a little wrestling I was able to do it by by myself but a helper would be nice. Preferably someone with some mechanical experience. Good luck and be sure to pre read the instructions.Paul

THIS IS POSSIBLY THE ONLY WAY TO PUT A HITCH ON A FIFTH WHEEL. IT FIT LIKE IT WAS MADE FOR IT. I USE IT TO TRAILER MY HARLEY AND IT WORKS GREAT. I AM NOT AFRAID OF IT FALLING OFF DOWN THE ROAD. GREAT HITCH!!! 258058

This is a very well made hitch that fit perfectly except it takes a lot longer to install buy your self then what the manufacture said. they say 90 minutes, how about 6 hours to do it right plus, a extra 3 hours dealing with the belly pan & insulation removal & installation, wiring for the plug which all takes time to do it right. Great heavy duty product made in the USA. 185098

Just received the hitch haven't installed it yet but looks like it's going to work. I was shocked when it showed up in two days, never had that fast of delivery. As soon as I can get it installed I'll update this review with pictures. I can say it is of solid construction and made to last, thought my wife would never get it in the garage. Again Wow on the delivery. 223330

by: Al B.06/11/2014


Good product; not so good installation instructions. Bolt length a bit long; access hole of 1.5 inches a bit narrow making it almost impossible to fish bolts through 2 X 4 rectangular tubing. I was a bit at fault in not checking the dimensions of the side plates. If the hitch is installed as indicated, realize that trailer clearance will be drastically reduced. 135039

I ordered this over a year ago got it really quick much cheaper than I could get it any where else. It was a good quality and it worked perfectly and very easy to install If you need a trailer hitch I would buy from this company again and if you need any thing that they have I know you will live the quality of the parts and the quick delivery! 247774

Very easy to install once you get the underbelly out of the way. I had to cut the 4" square factory bumper off to allow for clearance of the receiver. This hitch is very solid, hardware is good, and the powder coated finish is nice. You can't beat etrailer, they have never let me down, always shipped quickly, price is always competitive. 111113

The 4 out of 5 is based on it's incompatibility to work with my trailer. I have a Rockwood Mini Lite and unfortunately this Curt, while hefty and awesome, will not work with my I-beam construction. The brackets are much too big to work within the confines of the rear end of the trailer. Which is too bad. It really is a nice setup. 211805

received the hitch with no problems. took it out of box to install on 5th wheel. way too big for mounting unless i do major modifications to brackets. other than that. it looks to be a big beefy hitch that would work for towing jeep behind 5th wheel. haven't decided to send back or do the modifications 223377

Hitch is well built however if your trailer has a 4 inch Square bumper you will probably have to notch the bottom of the bumper so that the Receiver part of the hitch will have clearance to accept the ball mount. I did notch mine and welded a c shape piece of channel into the bumper and it works perfect. 304124

Yes it was delivered late yesterday afternoon however it's been raining pretty hard and it going to continue until the middle of next week, so I won't be installing until the rain quits. But it looks good and by the weight of it tells me it's going to work just fine. 358165

Very strong high quality product with Fast shipping. My Trailer (StarCraft Autumn Ridge 28ft) had an extra bracket on the passenger side that caused me to move the hitch further underneath, but with a 12 extension hitch, it works perfect. 202287

Could you drill all the way through the frame and use longer bolts,so you dont have to drill the access holes.

-- comment by: Orv S - 03/12/2014

It would really be best not to drill straight through. Keeping the drill bit straight from one side of the box frame to the other would not be easy. If the bolt sits at an angle, it would not have as good of a hold on the hitch flanges. Additionally, it is typically better for the frame to drill less holes, even if one of those holes is a larger access hole.

Love this hitch, mounted it to the frame and couldn't be any sturdier! Use a bike rack that accommodates up to four bikes and am confident that all is well as we travel with our 5th wheel. Highly recommend! 285389

  • Weld On Versus Bolt On Hitch Receiver for Use with Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers on RVs
  • In my opinion you are going in the right direction with a frame mounted receiver. The only advantage to a weld on application is that, if welded properly, the attachment point, weld, will be stronger than the hitch or trailer frame steel and one of those two would have to fail before the weld would break. Bolt on installations are easier to install and are rated for the same capacities as most of the weld on models, and many of the hitches offer both options. For bike racks and cargo...

It sounds as if at that point you have 74 inches. If that is the case then this hitch is not long enough.

  • Before attempting to install a hitch on the rear of a 5th wheel, I always recommend you consulting the 5th wheel manufacturer to ensure that the rear structure of the 5th wheel is strong enough to handle the weight of the bike rack and the bikes it carries. I called Heartland, who confirmed that using a hitch on the rear of your 5th wheel is acceptable, but you should not under ANY circumstances use the hitch for towing. Although the capacity of the hitch might be greater, Heartland states...

  • Recommended Receiver Hitch for Rear of Forest River Fifth Wheel
  • I'd begin by contacting Forest River to ensure that the frame members at the rear of your fifth wheel have sufficient capacity to carry the weight of the carrier and the scooter without damaging anything. If Forest River gives you the go-ahead, I'd recommend the # UF35-946403 hitch, which is compatible with frame members that are between 47-3/8 to 77 inches apart, measured from the inside of the frame. This hitch is a weld on application, and has a 350 lb tongue weight capacity, meaning...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Coachmen 292BHDS Travel Trailer
  • Only certain bike racks can be used on the back of a trailer or RV. I have included a link to the options for you. The Swagman XTC4, # S64665, cannot be used at the back of a trailer or RV. If your trailer has a 4 to 4-1/2 inch square steel bumper that has a continuous weld then you can use # S80600 and you will not need a hitch. I have linked the instructions for you to view. If you want to go with one of the hitch mount options then you must have a 4 inch square continuous welded...

  • Recommended Hitch for Bike Rack at Rear of Toy Hauler
  • We have numerous RV and travel trailer hitches available. The most versatile hitch is the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 13703. This trailer hitch will fit on frames ranging from 22 inches wide to 72 inches wide. It will also fit on box frames, C-channel frames, or I-Beam frames. And, the side brackets can be welded or bolted on. The hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. I have included a link to the installation details and an installation video for this...

  • Trailer Hitch Options to Use a Cargo Carrier on a Jay Feather M 218 Travel Trailer
  • We have several different trailer hitch options that will allow you to use a cargo carrier on your Jay Feather M218 trailer. You must keep in mind that there is significantly more bouncing at the back of the trailer and because of this we recommend taking extra precautions when using a cargo carrier behind a trailer or RV. If you want to use a bumper mounted hitch like the Ultra-Fab Bumper Mount Hitch, # UF35-946402, you will first want to verify the weight capacity of your trailers...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 1992 International School Bus
  • The only type of hitch I could recommend for a school bus would be a multi-fit hitch like the # 13703 that is a universal style hitch designed to fit frames that are between 22 and 72 inches apart. This hitch can fit virtually all frame styles so it should work for you, but check out the install video and instructions I attached first.

  • Hitch Options for Open Range 399BHS Travel Trailer
  • We offer several different options for installing a hitch on the rear of a camper or RV. If you click on the provided link, you can see the available options. Current pricing information is listed on each product description page. Frame mounted hitches like the # 13703 are a good option if the frame members of the camper are within the width range for the hitch, which is between 22 and 72 inches in this case. Although various frame mounted hitches carry a tongue weight capacity ranging...

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver For Jayco Travel Trailer And 4-Bike Rack Application
  • For your 2017 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 267BHSW travel trailer, I recommend the Ultra-Fab 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Trailer Frames # UF35-946403. This is a very nice weld on option adjustable from 47-1/8 to 77 inches. For a bolt on option, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. The Curt model recommends the use of stabilization strap # 18050. The weld on options are nice because they don't require any drilling into your frame, but...

  • Trailer Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier for the Back of a Travel Trailer
  • Curt RV frame mount hitch # 13703 has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. So the Honda Ruckus would be fine but the Suzuki would be too heavy since you also have to factor in the weight of a carrier. With this hitch Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their warranty requirements. For a hitch with a higher capacity that does not require the strap I recommend # C13702....

  • Recommended Hitch for Carrying Bike Rack on Rear of Keystone Outback 210RS Travel Trailer
  • If the outside to outside dimension of the frame members of your RV is between 22-72 inches, the Curt # 13703 would work for your RV. The brackets would need to remain in the orientation shown in the product description photos. Because of the nature of your frame, I'd recommend a hitch that attaches to the underside of the frame member, part # UF35-946403 from Ultra-Fab. This hitch is a fit for frame members that measure between 47-77 inches apart, outside to outside. The Curt # 13703...

  • Bolt-On RV Hitch for Travel Trailer with 72-Inch Frame Width
  • We do offer hitches designed for installation on trailer and RV frames. We also offer bumper-mount RV hitches that can be installed on certain RVs that have a continuously-welded (not spot-welded) steel bumper. Both types can be seen by clicking on the linked page. We offer two frame-mount hitches that can fit on a 72-inch-wide trailer frame (measured from the outside of one rail to the outside of the other). These are the bolt-on Curt # 13703 and the weld-on Ultra-Fab # UF35-946403....

  • Hitch Recommendation for use on a Fun Finder 21-foot Travel Trailer
  • Tandem towing (towing a trailer with a trailer) is generally not considered a safe practice although we may see this done from time to time. Doing so may be illegal in some states so I urge you to check with your local highway patrol (and those of the states in which you intend to travel) to see if this poses a legal issue. The Curt Motor Home Trailer Hitch you reviewed, part # 13703, is intended for installation on a motor home or trailer whose frame width is between 22- and 72-inches....

  • Frame-Mount Hitch for 2014 Keystone Raptor 300 5th Wheel Toy Hauler
  • The widest motor home frame width for which we offer a trailer hitch is 77-inches as measured from outside edge to outside edge at the two frame rails. The hitch we offer for that maximum frame dimension is the Ultra-Fab # UF35-946403. This hitch offers 350-lb tongue weight and 3500-lb gross trailer weight ratings and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. You'll want to check your Raptor owner's manual to see if Keystone approves of installation of a frame-mounted hitch on your particular...

  • Spare Tire Mount Recommendation for Trailers with Limited Frame Space
  • We do have a couple different spare tire mount options for you to check out. You could go with the Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Systems, # RA-16HST, that you referenced, but you will also need an E-Track rail. For this I recommend the 4 ft Vertical E-Track, # E19146. The E-track system was primarily designed to be installed inside of an enclosed trailer, but you could install it on the outside of the trailer if you would like. I do not recommend installing it on the side of the trailer...

  • Can an Enclosed Trailer be Towed Behind a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Towing one trailer behind another trailer is illegal in many places so the first thing you are going to want to do is check the laws where you will be traveling. It is also just not a good idea because it is not safe. The likelihood of jackknifing and a bad sway condition is greatly increased plus there is a lot more momentum pushing you forward. If installing a trailer hitch on the 5th wheel I strongly recommend a frame mounted hitch, not a bumper mount hitch. The bumper mount hitches...

  • Curt Stabilizing Strap for Adjustable Width RV Hitch # 13703
  • Per the warranty of the Curt # 13703, a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 would need to be used for hitch accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. The strap is designed to provide additional support for the hitch mounted accessory. Curt has the same warranty stipulation on their Class I and II passenger vehicle hitches (as well as some of the Class III's). Finding a place to attach the hook on the end of the strap is usually pretty simple, but can be more difficult with a motorhome. Other...

  • Recommended Frame-Mount RV Trailer Hitch for 2016 Palomino Puma 253FBS
  • The Curt hitch you referenced, Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13701, fits trailer frames up to 51-inches wide (measured outside to outside) and so it will not work on your Palomino Puma that has a frame width of 68-1/2-inches. A better fit is Curt's RV hitch # 13703 which fits frames up to 72-inches wide. An install video is linked for reference. You can use the linked photo of the hitch mounting bracket that shows it's dimensions to see if there is enough clearance to mount it. This...

  • Trailer Hitch for a Lance Travel Trailer
  • I would need to know the width of the frame measured from the outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other frame rail at the back of the trailer. And if you can tell me if it is a C-channel, I-beam, or box frame that would help too. The Curt trailer hitch you referenced # 13703 is the best bet. It fits frame widths for 22 inches to 72 inches. And it will fit box frames, C-channel frames, and I-beam frames. It can also be bolted or welded on. If you choose to have the trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch Options for a Casita Travel Trailer
  • I did some research on the Casita travel trailers and after speaking with Casita, I found that the bumper on the Casita travel trailers were not designed to support any additional weight due to its construction. They also said they do not recommend mounting a hitch or any other type of accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier on the bumper. One option that may work for you is a frame mount trailer hitch such as the Curt Adjustable Width Hitch, # 13703. This is a universal RV style...

  • RV Trailer Hitch For a Class-C 21 Foot Winnebago

The Curt hitch # 13086 you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 1992 Toyota pickup. For your motor home, the most likely hitch to fit is the Curt adjustable width trailer hitch receiver # 13703. It's a Class-III hitch and can be adjusted from 22-72 inches in width. It will have a gross trailer...
