The Curt trailer hitch was just what I needed to attach the bike rack on my camper bumper. They were delivered quickly and packaged well. They were easy to assemble and very sturdy. I look forward to many years of service. Thanks again for a great product. 199221

just received today, mounted it on the bumper vertically so as to make a mount for my waste travel tote for my travel trailer, or i can mount horizontally to use my luggage rack. Shipping was quick. So far so good. 584212

Torqued to spec. and works as expected. We hang a bike rack off of it on the back of a travel trailer. Solid design. Reason not a 5: There was a slight alignment issue getting the bolts through both sides due to the stampings not being aligned when welded. Once I got the bolts through, no issue, but there was interference with the threads on the stamping; had to turn the bolts through as they would not slip through. Still would recommend. 674835

Awesome product. I did have one problem with it but it was on my end. The bumper on my Keystone Summerland Series Mini was a little to close to the body so I had to flip the mount over to make the bolts work. Shipping was fast!!!! 4 days including the day I ordered. Would have been 3 but something happened with UPS. I will definitely be buying more products from etrailer Corporation. 458672

Used the bolt on hitch to support my bike carrier vs. the Keystone carrier on my 2018 Cougar 5th wheel. This saved me about 50lbs. and the Keystone rack is made of soft metal so it would wear the mounting holes and cause the reck to droop. I am also looking to get a kayak carrier and the hitch will work with this also, 864870

Ask the Experts about this Curt RV and Camper Hitch

  • Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1985 Dodge Van
    There aren't any front-mounted trailer hitch receivers that are custom designed to fit for a 1985 Dodge B350 and your bumper is not structurally strong enough to work with the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100. What that means is the only option that might work is a universal, adjustable-fit hitch such as the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" wide # 13703 or the Multi-Fit Motorhome Trailer Hitch, 24" - 46" wide # 5350 or 47" - 71" wide # 82201.

  • Will the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver E-100 Work To Pull a Trailer
    The Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 which is a fit for a standard 4" x 4" rear bumpers will allow you to tow a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. However, that is what the hitch is rated for and the bumper could be rated for less (must confirm with manufacturer). If so, you could install supports, the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Standard RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO22FR or installs a frame mount hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs part # 13703.

  • Weight of 2 inch Curt RV Bumper Trailer Hitch Receiver and Securing It With Bike Rack
    I checked with the manufacturer for you and the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 weighs 12 lbs. This hitch fits 4" x 4" square bumpers and while there is technically not a built-in security measure to keep someone from taking the hitch, it does get torqued down tightly to your bumper as you can see in the linked instructions, so it would be quite a bit of work to take it. Additionally, if you were using a bike rack such as the Thule Range 4 Bike RV Rack # TH9057 or...

  • How Much Can the Rear Bumper Hold On A Vintage RV Camper
    I would not be able to speculate on the rear bumper capacity for any one particular trailer especially one this old but if you feel you will be exceeding this with the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 you can add supports, the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO34VR. The other options would be a frame mount trailer hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703.

    Thanks for the photo! I can now see the issues you are having trying to install a trailer hitch on your 2019 Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite Fifth Wheel. That said, the brackets for the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703 and the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13704 are too large to attach to the square tubing used to attach your bumper and this square tubing would get in the way if you tired to mount the hitch to the frame underneath.

  • How to Carry Heavy E-Bikes on Back of Trailer
    While there is a way to carry your heavy e-bikes on the rear of a trailer, there is no way to safely carry e-bikes on the front of your trailer because there isn't a method that can handle the 100 lb - 110 lb capacity you need. So what you'll require is a trailer hitch for your trailer and an RV-approved bike rack. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. This will work on trailers with a box frame, C-channel frame,...

    We have a good solution for you, though I took a look at the hitch you mentioned, and it is very similar in regards to installation as the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100. That leads me to believe you would have the same issues, so I recommend going with a hitch that installs differently, the Mount-n-Lock HiLoHitch for 4" RV Bumpers # MNT47FR. This hitch can install with the receiver either above or below your bumper, and uses a retention bolt, as you can see in...

    Trailer makers typically install hitch receivers on their 5th wheel and travel trailers to enable owners to use items like an RV-approved bike rack, such as the Swagman E-Spec 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack # S64689. Not all hitch accessories can be used on trailers or motorhomes but this particular Swagman carrier can be used on ANY vehicle, car, truck, van, pop-up camper, 5th wheel or motorhome. This sturdy rack is unique in this respect. Using a bike rack in the trailer's hitch will...

  • Recommended Bolt-On Hitch for 2018 Coleman Lantern 286RK
    The 2018 Coleman Lantern 286RK has a standard 4" x 4" rear bumper so I recommend the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100. This would be the only bolt-on option or one like it since there aren't any pre-drilled holes in the frame to attach it that way. You may need to move the spare tire over to fit the trailer hitch if present.

  • Old Thule Bike Rack Compatibility with RV Hitch Receiver on Travel Trailer
    The Curt # E-100 RV Receiver is a great option that will fit with your Casita travel trailer. The Thule bike carrier is not rated for travel trailer use as none of theirs are due to the significant movement on the back of a travel trailer. My recommendation is to use the Yakima RoadTrip RV Bike Rack - 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Black # Y02477 which is rated for travel trailer use. I've linked a video and have also linked the page to all the travel trailer rated bike racks we carry.

  • Hitch to Attach to Heartland Big Country 4 inch Rear Bumper to Carry Kayaks
    The Curt hitch you are looking at part # E-100 will fit the 4 inch square bumper of your 5th wheel and has a tongue weight capacity 350 lbs tongue weight so it would easily carry 150 lbs of tongue weight. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack or hitch kayak carrier. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well. You might run the strap to the RV ladder in your picture.

    The best 2-bike rack for use with the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 is the Swagman Escapee # S64693. This bike rack secures your bikes by the wheels so it is compatible with any frame style out there that doesn't have front fenders. The Escapee also comes with bike and rack locks to give you some peace of mind when you have to make a pit stop during travel. The only down side to this bike rack is that it weighs 65 lbs.

  • Can Curt RV Hitch # E-100 Tow Trailer that Weighs 2,400 lbs
    The Curt hitch part # E-100 has a 3,500 lb trailer towing capacity so it would easily be able to tow a trailer that weighs 2,400 lbs. The only thing you'll need to verify is that the bumper of your 2012 Crossroads Sunset Trail is also rated for this weight too. As long as that checks out this hitch would work great for your setup.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Forest River Salem Cruise Lite Travel Trailer
    Since your 2020 Forest River Salem Cruise Lite Travel Trailer has a rear bumper you'll need to install a bumper mount hitch receiver instead of one that installs directly to the frame. This is simply because anything installed to the frame will sit too far under your trailer for you to utilize the receiver. For your application I recommend the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 which fits around a 4" x 4" square bumper and easily installs using the the included bolts and...

If your boat and trailer's tongue and gross weights are within these limits then the hitch will be up to the task.

  • Trailer Hitch for Travel Trailer that Has Thin Square Bumper not Rated for Hitch
    For a bumper as thin as yours I would not recommend the # E-100 for installing a hitch. Instead I would recommend going with a frame mount like the part # 13703 that will fit your trailer as long as your outside to outside frame dimensions are between 22 and 72 inches. Since the goal is to carry a cargo carrier you would need to use the stabilizer strap part # 18050 as well per Curt's warranty requirements.

The rear bumper on your Rockwood Mini Lite can be used to carry other lighter items such as a spare tire but I would not use this for heavy e-bikes. That said, you would need to reach out to Rockwood in order to determine its weight carrying capacity. If it is rated for the weight of your...

The steel plates will provide more support and also look much better than the u-bolt options. If you also need a cargo basket for your generator...

    The bumper mount trailer hitch options we offer are all designed for the most part to fit a standard 4" x 4" square bumper, the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 for example. That said, I am not aware of any bolt-on trailer hitch which fits a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" bumper so if this is what you have your only option is one that mounts to the frame, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part #13703. These options will both work great with a bike rack.
