I was very suspicious how will it fit and suit Dodge Challenger. But when I received trailer hitch, and by they way it travelled across the planet to reach me, I was totally impressed with the quality, ease of installation and accessories which I ordered with it. I basically installed it myself with a help of a friend, it took about 30 minutes to fix it. It really saved me as I needed the trailer to transport my bike to the race track and I didn't want to change the car. So the conclusion, I own it for more than a year and have zero issues or complaints about the hitch or accessories. I used to travel long and short distances and in average I use it every second week. You barely can notice it when you remove drawbar so it is very good solution. 681808

Natalie, was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole ordering process. she googled and verified with her vender to make sure the order matched my Volkswagen. I have never installed a hitch on a car before and was very worried if I was going to get the right things. She even emailed me letting me know my that my order was delivered to my door this afternoon. If you call and order as for NATALIE. 690916

I would give five stars but due to what looks like packaging problems the hitch came very marred and the coating chipping off. 483912

Product comes basically unusable due to a lazy omission of the pin needed to connect the hitch receiver and tongue. This part must be purchased separately from an outside source if the absence is not realized in time, rendering the entire experience troublesome and inconvenient. Customer service is defensive and unable to convey empathy or remorse for customer dissatisfaction. Would strongly discourage future customers from considering this company. 646463

The pin and clip is sold separately as part F-4, as stated in the product description.

I bought this riser to level out my trailer to get rid of some trailer sway issues i was having. However it fit so loose that even with nothing on the trailer it was all over the place and scary. My trailer did not do this before at all. I got some composite shims and jamed them in there on 3 sides. Then managed to find a way to keep them in place...it worked but was a lot of cussing and swearing to finally get it to work....but since then its been good...product is 2 star...added a star for shipping time. 766879

Comments
Some drawbars do include a pin and clip, but Curt does not include the pin and clip with this drawbar. This allows you to choose a standard hitch pin like # F-4
Curt Class I and II Pin and Clip - 1/2" Diameter
$1.70
or a locking hitch pin like # e98879
etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 1-1/4" Hitches - Flush - 2-1/8" Span - Chrome

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Hitch with 1-1/4 Inch Receiver for 2019 Subaru Outback
    If you're looking for a 1-1/4" hitch I recommend using the Curt Class II # C12136 because of the durable powder coating that will help keep your hitch strong and avoid chances of corrosion. This Curt hitch is also a few pounds lighter than the other available choices, so it's exactly what you're looking for. The Curt Drawbar for 1-1/4" hitches # C45520 you were looking at is a great choice for the ball mount as well, and should be sufficient to cover the required rise you'll need to...

  • How to Determine the Rise/Drop of Class I Ball Mounts
    There's some specific measurements to take to determine the rise/drop of ball mount you need. Measure from the inside top of the receiver tube to the ground. Then, with the trailer jacked so that it's level, measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground. The difference between the two measurements is the rise/drop needed. If the coupler height is taller than that of the receiver, you'll need a ball mount with a rise. If the coupler height is smaller than that of the...

  • Ball Mount and Hitch Ball Recommendation for 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser with Curt Hitch
    With Class I hitches like the Curt part # C45014 that you have for your 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser you have to use the recommended ball mount from the hitch manufacturer. Which in your case is the Curt # C45520 which has a 3-1/8 inch rise. For hitch balls you'd then want the part # C40018 for a 2 inch ball and # C40001 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

  • Recommended 3 Inch Rise Ball Mount for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver

This is a really nice ball mount that features the same 3 inch rise but can also be used in the drop position for a 4 inch drop. It has a towing capacity of 12,000 pounds. It measures 10 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product...

I did take a look at the Hyundai website and as you said it listed the SEL Plus as having a 2,000 lb towing capacity as opposed to the 1,500 lb capacity of the SE and SEL; however, it looks like the SEL Plus only has some interior features differentiating it from the SE and SEL so it would not make sense for the capacity...

The Curt offers easier installation but its cross tube will be visible under the bumper cover.

I've linked the installation instructions for you, from the looks of them the installation doesn't look too terribly difficult. If you'll be needing the hitch for towing purposes, you'll need a couple few other items to complete your setup. For a trailer wiring harness, use # 118454. For a ball mount, use # C45520 and # PC2 for a hitch pin. For a...

  • Can 2014 Ford Mustang be Used to Tow Motorcycle Trailer
    According to the online owner's manual for your 2014 Ford Mustang you can tow up to 1,000 lbs. So if you can find a trailer that weighs under 1,000 lbs with your motorcycle loaded you will be just fine. I recommend installing the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11210 on your Mustang because it has a collar around the receiver which can be used for more stability in certain applications. For wiring I recommend the T-One # 118487 because of how reliable we have found the Tekonsha wiring to be. Then...

For that reason, I recommend using a lightweight trailer like the Malone XtraLight # MPG526G-V, which comes with kayak carriers integrated and will give you the ability to carry 2 kayaks and cargo weighing up to 400-lbs (confirmed...

I recommend the Curt Class II trailer hitch part # C12339 because it is assembled in the USA.

In the instructions for Curt trailer hitch # C11373 specified ball mount is # C45521 which is a Class II ball mount.
