The hitch that we ordered was shipped the day of our order and came very quickly. The installation process was simple and worked very well on our bus. This gives us the capability to tow a small trailer to carry our luggage for the youth conferences that our teens attend throughout the year. 521347

I've used Curt products before and this one did not disappoint. The packaging however was not up to the task. The box was open and I immediately started inspecting for damages and missing parts, thankfully the packer from etrailer completely wrapped the loose parts in reinforced tape and everything was there. 502861

I actually ordered the wrong hitch; however, gave to a friend that needed one. He likes it. I ordered the same hitch but the 71 or 72 inch span.

Ordered this to retro fit a Class III hitch on a '63 Willys truck. So far it works perfectly. Was able to attach it directly to the frame and not lose any functionality. Also ordered C45791 Hitch extender and won't need it with this setup. All parts were included and the install instructions were clean. eTrailer also did a great job of assisting with the order to ensure that it got to me as quickly was possible. 222031

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for Camper Trailer
    I have to start by saying you need to contact Flagstaff to ensure your camper has the structural integrity to tow, as it's frame may not. State laws are also going to need to be examined in regards to double towing and the total length you are allowed to tow. If everything checks out, the trailer hitch options are going to depend on the frame or bumper of your camper. If your camper has a C-Channel frame, or I-Beam frame and it is 18"to 51" wide you can use the Curt Adjustable Trailer...
