Everything went great. It takes a little longer than 20 minutes if you do it alone.

I have had ZERO problems with this trailer hitch. In the past year it has performed remarkably in every circumstance. Ive pulled a small and with a riding mower up to a single car hauler loaded to the maximum. I highly recommend this product for you one ton work or play vehicle.

Here is how I ended up buying this hitch. In the spur of the moment I decided to buy a trailer (right place, right time, right price ) and all i had to hook it onto was the ball on the back bumper (rated at 500 lbs, which i found out later on) Needless to say, I pulled a 5000 lbs trailer hooked to the bumper. Yes, I know...not very smart...didn't know better.
Long story short... the bumper is a bit bent and I learned my lesson.

Here we are, bought the right hitch for the right trailer for the right situation. Live and learn.

It was delivered as stated (about 5... 6 days) and the package was heavy.
After i drove around with it for about another 2 weeks, i finally had time to install it.
I AM HAPPY. It is heavy, for a reason. It is sturdy and you feel it. I watched the video on the website for installation. It was very helpful, especially the trick to tape the washers to hold them in place. I did this in the parking lot and did not even jack up the van. I am skinny guy and usually I fit under any car. It is not easy to install it by yourself, yet not impossible.
It is hard to hold the hitch in place under the van, hold the back of the screws and put the nuts on and screw them at the same time, so i put one screw on one side and then another one across on the other side, after witch I put the rest of them in.
I must say the holes seemed to be to close together. I tightened one side an couldn't put the screws in on the other side. The holes could be moved apart another 1/16 in order to make the job easier (or maybe my van was just like that)
I screwed all the nuts little by little until they were all tightened up.

The price was right, high quality, feels sturdy. Happy with the purchase and will buy again and recommend it.
Time will tell how it holds.
Thank you Etrailer.

I received this hitch with some chips down to the metal. So I repaired these. Alll holes lined up except one. The hitch was bent 1/2 inch on one side. So with a steel rod, wood blocks, and a pump jack, I bent the hitch into place. All the extra work is why I gave this hitch a 3 star rating. I now have a 5 star hitch that works great with my Thule bike rack.

The biggest flaw was the bent hitch that I had to spend extra time and effort on to bend back into place. Like I said, after bending the hitch with a steel rod and wood blocks and a pump jack.... I now have a 5 star hitch.

Installation was easy. It took me less than 10 min. Now I need a cargo carrier that will hold a predator 9500 inverter generator. Specs are
Weigh 257 lbs, width 23.74in and lenght 31in. I will have to be able to remove generator often ( maybe a tilt or one with a ramp. ) since i will need to open rear van door often.
Please let me know what I can buy.
Thank you!

This hitch was extremely easy to install on my 2014 E-150 Passenger van. Propped on end up on a step stool and bolted on the other, and then bolted on the step stool side. Instructions were easy and, at least in my case, didn't require any drilling. The only hitch (pun intended) was my lack of a torque wrench, but my neighbor is a mechanic, so I borrowed his. It took about 45 minutes to install in the driveway.

I don't currently have a trailer, but I plan to use the 2" receiver for bike and cargo racks, and possibly a step. In any case, it's always good to have a hitch.



by:

So far, so good, but I haven't pulled with it yet. My only gripe on install is that they give you two big washers to make up the space that a frame weld creates, but the washer is too skinny. They would need to send 4 washers of that same thickness to make up the space. I had two fat ones here, so I added a fat one to theirs on each side and it fit snug when I torqued it down. If I hadn't done that, all I would have had was a washer floating around between the frame and the hitch and it would have rattled. Otherwise, it was straight forward install. Fit and finish are fine.

I recently purchased the Curt class 4 trailer hitch for my 2006 /E-350 van. I'm impressed with the ease of installation, and fit! With the help of a friend to lift it up into position it took about 10 min. Using the factory holes in the frame, and it fits perfectly around the spare tire.

on the fone I got all the answers I needed to get my project done very professional helpful as well very happy with the product as well the customer service and shipping was sooner than I expected great job....



by:

Shipping was very quick. Opening the box, initial impression was that the finish was very high quality, no chips or nicks in the glossy paint. Instructions were straightforward, very simple. Installation took me, a very slow worker, about 30 minutes. I used a few pieces of wood on an overturned milk crate to support the hitch while I inserted the bolts and finger tightened the nuts. I wrenched them down tight, then used a torque wrench to tighten them further. Easy peazy.



by:

Item was exactly as described and took roughly 10 minutes to install including unpacking. I also ordered the necessary wiring and brake controller to complete the package and those were just as easy. The videos that are available are done very well and makes these projects go that much easier.



by:

The selection of product is great! It was really nice to be able to get everything needed from one place :) Everyone I spoke with was very knowledgeable and helpful in making the process simple :)

I had two young boys install it 15 minutes or less all the brackets was perfectly lined up with the holes and also the wire harnesses install to. Thank u e trailer staff.

Great hitch this is the second one I got front etrailer, easy to install only took 12 minutes and the price was right
Thank you



by:

Appreciate the quick shipping.
Also
nice to have what I needed in stock.
Super ez to place online order.
I will keep you in mind for my future trailer and towing needs.

Easy installation! I paid for the cheap shipping (not the free one) just to make sure it was here before Christmas. Came within 3 days of ordering. No drilling required. Bolted on within minutes. I was astonished how easy it was. Made my dad very happy! Gave it to him as an early gift.



by:
2014 Ford Van

Fit was perfect. Less than 30 minutes for install. Not visible under factory’s bumper. I might suggest the carriage bolt plates be slightly longer to prevent rotation during bolt tightening.



by:
2012 Ford Van

The overall quality of this product is excellent. I did have to apply a little elbow grease in the form of a wooden pry bar to get the holes to line up and the bolts to drop it, but other than that the installation went flawlessly on my 2012 E250 Van.



by:

Perfect fit even with a spare. Sticks out a little bit but probably not as much if your vehicle has a step bumper.

2011 Ford Van

I am very happy with the Curt hitch I bought for my 2011 E350 Ford Van. My hitch was shipped very quickly and was a snap to install. Wiring also was very easy snap together with the Curt harness wiring kit. Both are top quality as expected based on the reviews I read on Etrailer

I chose the Curt hitch over the Reese because it is MADE IN THE U.S.A. Apparently Reese and Draw-Tite are now made offshore. It used to be you could save money buying a product made in China, but not so anymore; The offshore "name brands" are both significantly more expensive. In my my opinion, I would much rather have a hitch welded by a guy in Wisconsin who would likely be pulling his own boat with one on the weekend than a kid in China making $2 a day that doesn't even know what he is building. And the only improvement I can think of on the Curt is that they should make the American flag logo bigger on the Curt sticker on the hitch. Curt is the new gold standard in my opinion!

After one year I still love this product. paint still looks like new after a Chicago winter. As good or better than the factory hitch on my old van.

Easy to install, works great!

Great! Ive haulled a double axle U-Haul trailer a few times in the last year, most commonly use it as a bike rack mount. It seems pretty heavy duty and I havent had any problems at all with it. I really liked how easy it was to install. Great product

Its really heavy duty and works out great. Easy to install. Ive hauled a 25 ft trailer of household and yard weighs to the dump a couple of times. Ive used it on a double axle U-Haul trailer four times. Mostly I use it to mount a bike rack. Great product!



by:

My order and delivery were exceptional I received very quickly at a price that was very competitive. I was very impressed. I did have some problems with installation. First the bolts to secure the unit to the vehicle were burred enough to restrict easy threading, and three had to tightened all the way with use of a ratchet. The other more serious problem was the squared out plates that keep the bolts from turning when tightening where to small and did not lock against the frame. I was able to use the plates from the hitch I removed for this procedure, the plates needed to be slightly larger with no rounded corners.



by:

To anyone even if you dont have strong mechanical skills this is an easy installation. Dont pay the dealership their outrageous price to have them install a hitch that takes less than an hour to instajj with a few wrenches. This is an exceptional product! Oh and make sure you get the trailer wiring harness because all you do is plug it into an existing wiring and you are ready to bring on your trailer needs. Highly recommend this hitch.



by:

Chris on the phone straightened out the shopping cart problems on the spot. He put the order thru and added my faster shipping payment. Order received in 2 business days (one day early after labor day weekend). The hitch is extremely well built by Curt mfg. sold by E trailer. Took me less than 30 minutes to install. Exact fit and a few videos on there websites to get familiar with the install. I used 2 stacks of the lego style rv levelers to prop it up under both sides of the frame. Then dropped in the bolts shoved it up and applied the nuts. A 3/4” socket and rachet wrench is all that is need. My van is a 2012 E350. Recommend Etrailer service and quality parts for everyone.

Super easy install. I used to jack-stands to hold hitch in place. Laid on back and secured fasteners.
Had to buy a torque wrench, went to HFT, did not realize etrailer.com carried them...woops!
I bought the higher rated hitch for higher tongue weight rating, to be safe for hitch-mounted accessories.
Great price, well packaged parcel, excellent experience!
Thank you.
