Product is very well built and looks nice. You may not want pictures of it, as I am installing it on the front of my pick-up to carry a bike rack. The hitches made for the truck put the hitch right in the middle of the license plate--this one will ride very nicely below the air dam below the bumper. 554569

Although its still sitting on the shop floor it looks great and is heavy duty !! and i am very impressed with shipping came 4 days earlier then expected, that is why its still on the shop floor waiting to be installed I pre scheduled it at the time i expected it. at the welding shop . I called them they could not get it in earlier ( I guess they are not etrailer ) 438128

Bought a new Jeep Wrangler 2-door that I wanted to tow cross country. The existing hitch on my Gulfstream BT Cruiser was only rated at 3500 lbs. and I wanted to upgrade that to 5000 lbs. which was allowable after checking all the weight measurements. Found this adjustable hitch on etrailer.com and thought it would work for me. I mounted the brackets and cross bar temporarily to center the receiver and then mark where I needed to drill into the cross bar. Removed the bar and drilled using a step drill bit and finally the regular drill bit. Mounted everything up loosely, then tightened moderately to make sure everything fit right. Then loosened each bolt, applied red loctite, and torqued to spec. Towed the Wrangler over 4500 this past fall and the hitch worked perfectly. Can't be happier. 495600

I called etrailer to get dimensions on a different hitch I was thinking of ordering. Carrie asked a few questions about my vehicle, which is a 2020 model golf cart that is so new, they haven’t made an own hitch for it yet. She then guided me to this adjustable Curt hitch. I am very grateful for her help. The hitch fits well. 777350

Ask the Experts about this Curt RV and Camper Hitch

  • Is RV Trailer Hitch Available with 10,000 lb Weight Capacity
    If you are looking for a trailer hitch to mount on your RV then the highest rated capacity is the Curt Trailer Hitches parts # C13702 and # C13701 which are both rated for a max of 6,000 lbs towing when a weight distribution (WD) system is used. These are the same hitch with the only difference being the 13701 has a 2" drop for the receiver. We do have the Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Cross Tube # 41991 which has a 16,000 lb towing rating but I'm not sure if it would fit your...

  • Recommended Flat Tow System for 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 4x4
    Your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 crew cab 4x4 curb weight is 5,300 lbs based on my research. To flat tow this vehicle, I recommend upgrading your 5,000 lb hitch to the Curt Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch # 15903 which is a universal fit for frames between 18 and 61 inches wide. Then for your flat towing setup, I recommend you begin with the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-3176-3 and use Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420 for the installation. Then for your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for my Geo Pro Camper
    For your Geo Pro Camper with a 59" frame rails width the DrawTite Multi-Fit Motor Home Trailer Hitch part # 82201 is an excellent choice. I like the really low profile it offers allowing it to fit snugly up under the camper. It mounts with the provided hardware directly to the frame of the camper and allows you to position it where you want it as far as more inboard or more outboard depending on where you want the receiver tube opening. The instructions are linked below if you'd like...

  • Trailer Hitch That Fits 2015 Winnebago Trend
    We have a trailer hitch that does fit your 2015 Winnebago Trend based on the dimensions you listed but since your frame is 55 inches from outside to outside the part # C13702 won't fit as it's max width is 51 inches. Instead you'd want the Curt # 13703 which fits up to a 72 inch wide frame width. This hitch also has a capacity of 3,500 lbs which would be more than enough for your application.

  • Can Curt Hitch Receiver for RVs # C13702 Mount onto I-Beam Frame of Rockwood Ultralite Trailer
    I spoke with our contact at Curt and he informed me that for the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, part # C13702, it is not recommended to mount this onto your RV's I-Beam. The reason for this is that when mounting a trailer hitch onto an I-Beam, you will need both vertical and horizontal mounting holes. The Curt # C13702 uses only vertical mounting holes. If you are needing to mount the Trailer Hitch onto your I-Beam, I recommend the Curt # 13703 as it is designed...

This adjustable hitch is designed specifically for trailers like yours and it does feature a 500 pound tongue weight capacity. It can be bolted on with the included hardware or welded on for a no-drill application. I have included the written installation instructions that you can take a look at as well. If you...

  • Frame-Mounted Hitches for 5th Wheel Trailers
    Trailer makers do not usually include frame dimensions in their website specs, and I found this to be true for Keystone. Also, since there are currently 19 different models of 5th wheel trailer in the Montana High Country series it is possible that frame dimensions could differ between models and model years. The best ways to confirm your frame width are to crawl under the trailer and remove the panels that are blocking access for measuring or to contact Keystone with your VIN so that they...

This hitch fits RV's with frame widths from 18" - 51" apart when measuring from the outside of each rail. The Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier part # RM-195225 can be added to give you a way to carry your spare tire. The great thing about this carrier is that it can be swung downward for easy...

  • Side Brackets on Curt Trailer Hitch C13702 are too Tight to Slide On and Off Hitch Tube
    The issue is most likely caused by some excessive powder coating on the brackets, hitch tube, or both for hitch # C13702. It is permissible to sand away excessive powder coat. Some light lubrication will also help. Those two things will probably do the trick but if it still needs a little persuasion might I suggest a rubber mallet rather than a sledge so as not to damage the hitch.

  • Recommended RV Hitch and Hitch Dirt Bike Carrier
    Your best option for an RV hitch will be a frame-mount type since these offer higher capacity than the bumper-mount variety. All frame-mount RV hitches we offer are shown on the linked page. You will want to use the highest-capacity hitch that will fit your RV's frame width. A good choice is Curt's adjustable width hitch # C13702 which offers a 500-lb tongue weight (TW) rating.

  • Fit of Curt Adjustable Width RV Hitch C13702 on 2019 Forest River Rockwood Roo 233S
    I'm not certain what you mean by the 'down' version. The # C13702 Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch fits RV frames that are 18-51 inches apart. This hitch has a 2 inch drop which means that the top of the receiver tube would sit 2 inches lower than the frame member the hitch is bolted to. Because this hitch is pretty much a universal fit item, I don't have any information about a specific trailer fit. As long as your trailer has frame members that are between 18-51 inches apart, and...

  • Hitch & Bike Rack Recommendations for 2017 Forest River Flagstaff MAC206 LTD Pop-up Camper
    A hitch bike rack made for use on a standard passenger vehicle cannot be used on the back of a trailer. The reason is that the further away from the rear axle a hitch is located the more stresses, both vertical and horizontal, will be placed on anything installed in that hitch. It is a matter of leverage, like when you slip a cheater bar over the end of a lug wrench. A standard hitch rack would be likely to suffer damage if used on the back of a pop-up, not to mention what this could do...
