There were some UPS delivery issues, damaged in shipment. But, etrailer.com jumped right on sending out another shipment after it was apparent that UPS would not complete the delivery.

The installation took longer, maybe 1-1/2 hours, because I did not have all my tools ready and I was working on the concrete floor in the dark to outside with a portable shop light. Everything fit well and it looks great.

The 2" drop ball mount was the perfect height for my 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. I love the look of the Curt black insert that makes the hitch looks like it belongs on the car, nothing embarrassing at all.

Anything negative? Maybe. The flat plate was a little difficult to hook onto with the UHaul safety chains on a 5x8 trailer. That's hardly a negative, though, and I wouldn't have spent more on another brand choice because of this. Happy happy!



by:

Great fit and finish on this kit. So nice to be able to tow things with my Forester now. I thought I had an issue but figured out it was user error pretty quick, but only after I contacted etrailer for help. I heard back within 30 minutes of emailing and by that time I figured out my blunder. They were extremely helpful and responsive and were set on fixing the problem I thought I had. I have used etrailer for several different purchases over the past couple years and every time I have been thrilled with the service and the quality of product.



by:

Excellent receiver kit! Combined with the curt trailer hitch and the oem Mazda trailer harness add on, this is legit!



by:

While I haven't yet used it, this kit seems to be exactly what I need. Fit and finish are excellent, and packaging is most convenient for those of us who only occasionally use a hitch and want to store the kit when not in use. Thanks! Highly recommend.



by:

After a slight issue that was immediately identified by etrailer, they quickly resolved it, and I received everything in 4 days. Great customer service!



by:

It’s nice to not need to torque the ball onto the hitch.



by:

Does the job. In a year I’ve hauled maybe 10 times without issue and the ball has even stayed pretty shiny!



by:

As always, Curt products are well built. The style and finish are beautiful. Never have any problems with fitment.
Searching and ordering online was a breeze. My only complaint is the search filter. It is not very user friendly.
This kit has everything you need and more. I especially love the locking hitch pin. I use a lot of public boat ramps and over the years I have had my hitch stolen multiple times. With this locking pin, I wont have to worry about that anymore.



by:

It’s as advertised, a hitch assembly. I do like the rubber hitch hole cover, it has a snug fit. The lock seems kind of weak at first use but I’ll give it time.



by:

First time installing a hitch receiver went really well with the included instructions and videos. If I need to get another receiver this will be my place to go!



by:

This started kit has everything you need in one nice package to get towing! Very nice to not have to piece everything together separately. And it costs much less by getting it all together in one handy package! Thank you Alyssa for all your help!



by:

GREAT! Ball/mount assembly kit received in excellent condition.
(Note: I had also received the hitch assembly a week or so earlier)

Impressed with quality, fit and performance of product.

Perfect set-up for my bike rack used on my 2020 Subaru Outback.

Will definitely use etrailer.com for future purchases.

Easy installation



by:

Works well



by:

Does the job it’s made to do. Exactly as pictured and is great. It does take so getting used to putting the locking bar thing in and securing it.



by:

I'm going to be moving soon and I have a new truck. I bought a hitch kit and extendable rear view mirrors for towing. They were well packaged and delivered quicker than I expected. You get something extra with your order. What really impressed me was the people. These people clearly LOVE what they do. You get people who actually care, with every order. That's something you can't buy and they give it away with every order.



by:

Easy installation, low profile and excellent quality. Exactly what I was looking for in a hitch receiver for our 2021 Pilot.



by:

Super easy to install! Very strong. I installed the hitch and the wiring for a trailer in about an hour. Zero problems getting it to line up. Great product.

Oh, my goodness, thats annoying! I am sorry it is giving you issues right off the bat. I will have our customer service team reach out to you!



by:

excellant watched a bunch of videos made it look hard but was installed in 15 minutes



by:

I normally keep a complete towing set in my automobiles and needed a new set for my wife's car. After some research, I decided to go with the Curt Towing Starter Kit. The quality is excellent and every aspect of the hitch and lock worked flawlessly. I can highly recommend this Curt starter kit to anyone needing a complete receiver hitch kit. Thanks once again!!

It’s been a year since purchasing this great Curt towing set. This car has a mobility lift installed, so I only keep the kit handy if towing is required. In the past year, I have not had to tow anything with this vehicle and the set has been stored safely in the case it came with and is still essentially new. Nice towing set!



by:

Looks fine. Fair price for the hitch, ball, and locking pin.



by:

Wow e trailer is the best it was so easy to install my hitch and wiring harness just make sure you have 1 extra person to set in the hitch and bolt up, and borrow a torque wrench if needed everything was real easy and the videos are very helpful thanks e-trailer for having the videos as well when you purchase items it makes it great. A+ for delivery too got my hitch delivered fast to with everything. Keep up the good work



by:

Purchased this product one year ago. It's still holding up without any issues! I would definitely recommend this product. The installation process was about 3 hours being done alone.



by:

The service was great. The agent quickly located the preferred part seamlessly. Thank you etrailer.

  • Trailer Hitch For A Mercedes-Benz GLS 450
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # C13190 is a perfect fit for your GLS Class Mercedes-Benz. This hitch has a 900 lb tongue weight, a 7500 lb towing capacity, 2" by 2" receiver tube opening so it will accommodate a lot of different hitch mounted accessories when not towing your trailer. You are correct, this hitch is not rated for weight distribution and with the trailer only weighing 3000 lbs, the GLS 450 having a 7500 lb towing capacity you don't need...

  • What is the Highest Weight-Rated Hitch for My 2022 Ram 1500 with a Class III Tow Bumper?
    If you have the class III tow bumper installed on your 2022 Ram 1500, the highest weight capacity rating on a hitch we carry that is compatible with the bumper is the Curt Trailer Hitch item # C15005. This hitch comes with an impressive 1,700 pounds of tongue weight and 15,000 pounds of gross towing weight capacity. As with any hitch, I recommend confirming with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can handle that much weight. If you plan on towing with the Curt Hitch,...

  • Draw-Tite 75713 or etrailer e98901 Trailer Hitch for 2013 Dodge Durango
    Out of the Draw-Tite # 75713 and etrailer # e98901 trailer hitches that fit your 2013 Dodge Durango I recommend going with the etrailer option because it has a matte black finish as opposed to the glossy black finish on the Draw-Tite. This not only tends to withstand scratches from road debris better, but it typically matches the trim on vehicles better as well which means you'll be getting a durable hitch that looks great. Attached is an installation video of this hitch on a 2021 Durango...

  • What Hitch will Fit with a Spare Tire on My 2022 Honda Pilot?
    I have a solution for you for being able to carry a spare tire with a hitch receiver on your 2022 Honda Pilot. Unfortunately, we do not currently carry a hitch that will be able to accommodate a 20-inch spare tire. However, if you are set on having the safety and peace of mind of traveling with a spare tire on your vehicle, I recommend purchasing an 18-inch spare tire from your local Honda dealer. With this size of tire, I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte...

  • What Hitch do You Recommend for My 2022 Honda Pilot with Spare Tire?
    For a great hitch for your 2022 Honda Pilot with an 18-inch spare tire, I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - 2" # e98840. Apart from being able to hold the spare tire while installed, this hitch is made in the U.S.A. and includes all hardware required for a drill-free installation. If you are looking to tow with your vehicle, I recommend a ball mount like the one in the Curt Tow Starter Kit # C45534. This kit also comes with a locking hitch pin, hitch cover, and 2-inch ball....

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer
    The trailer hitch receiver I recommend for your 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # DT55GR. I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch because it has a 2" receiver which will allow you to use a larger variety of accessories down the road. If you need a wiring harness, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # TK39FR. I recommend the T-One connector because it plugs directly into existing...

It gets it's signal directly from the tail lights which stay on when your vehicle is stopped at a light. This wiring harness is custom fit for the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee's that do not have the tow package. I have linked an installation video below to help you get it set up.

I have linked installation videos below for both hitches. If you are planning on towing you will also need a wiring harness item # C99DR and a ball mount kit item # C45534.

  • What is the Difference Between the Curt and etrailer Hitches for a 2021 Toyota RAV4?
    Cost and finish. The Curt item # C13416 and the etrailer Hitch item # e23ZR are both manufactured by Curt to the same specifications and capacities. The etrailer item # e23ZR is our house brand hitch and my personal preference due to the flat matte finish. This coating tends to blend in better beneath vehicles than the glossy finish on the Curt item # C13416. Both the Curt item # C13416 and the etrailer item # e23ZR hitches are confirmed to fit a 2021 Toyota RAV4. These hitches are custom...

  • Recommended Hitch, Wiring Harness, and Mounting Brackets for a 2017 Honda Odyssey
    To mount the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness item # C56378 to the Draw-Tite item # 76025 you will want to use the No-Drill Mount Bracket item # 18136 and the item # 18144. This will allow you to install the 4-way farther down from the hitch receiver without drilling. There's a lot going on there with the ball mount and safety chains. My personal preference is to get the wiring out of the way. The Curt Easy Mount Bracket item # C58001 you were looking at will work though. Both...

Curt manufacturers our etrailer branded hitches to the same specifications as their own. Both have been confirmed to fit the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness.

The etrailer item # e67AR has a 5,000 lbs towing capacity and a 500 lbs maximum tongue weight. The best part about this hitch is how simple the installation process is.

It is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver, so it will give you the most options for a bike rack and the highest capacity available. I really like the etrailer Hitch item # e45ZR because the crosstube mounts behind your rear bumper leaving only the 2" receiver exposed. This not only looks better but helps with ground clearance.
