Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11030

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (18 Customer Reviews)

Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.


The hitch fit perfect with no modifications and the workmanship is above reproach.


I am more than happy with my new hitch. It arrived quickly and I had a local garage install it for me. It's barely recognizable when the bike rack is not attached. I also have the Swagman Current on order and will be using that to transport my new ebike. This new combo is going to help me get out to trails on my new ebike and return to a healthy lifestyle. Super psyched!!!

2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Good hitch and e trailers a great company to buy from.

2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class



Awesome service.... product arrived early. Even when I had to return the item because of my misinformation they were extremely professional & efficient. I cannot recommend them strongly enough. The Best!


I totaled the car I purchased this hits for, but the hitch served well while I had it. I just purched a new hitch from you for my neused car!


install is a bear. not all C300 internal bumper bits are the same - took a lot of time, some grinding.
of course, once done, works like a charm - nothing has fallen off or gotten loose . . . .

2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Ordering was easy, hitch shipped promptly, whats not to like!
great company to do business with

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The trailer hitch for my MB C300 fit perfectly. I'm very happy with it.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The service was great! The hitch was delivered today, however, I have not installed it yet.

2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Well made and good fit for the car. The drilling was very difficult and you should follow their advice about using a die grinder for the two holes that need to be drilled.


Good fit and finish. Very well built. Install took less than an hour. Great product.




Excellent... perfect.




Works great

  • What Type of Steel Is Used for Curt Trailer Hitch Install Bolts
    The hardware that comes with the Curt hitch part # C11030 that you referenced is Grade 5 which means it is zinc coated to fight corrosion. Zinc coating isn't quite as corrosion resistant as stainless steel but it does a good job preventing rust. If a trailer hitch sees several harsh winters it's going to start developing rust. Typically it's not the hardware affected first though so most likely you wouldn't have a problem.

  • Why is There Only 1-1/4 inch Hitches Available for 2011 Mercedes C300
    On lighter duty vehicles like your 2011 Mercedes C300 we only have 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the Curt hitch part # C11030 which is a confirmed fit. The larger hitch size is generally only seen on SUVs and trucks that have higher towing capacities. Also using a hitch adapter to convert to the larger hitch size cuts the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent so it's not a great solution either.

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C11030 Fit 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300
    I spoke to my technical contact at Curt and he confirmed that this 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch receiver, part # C11030, will fit your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-300. This hitch is rated for 200 lbs tongue weight (TW) and 2000 lbs gross towing weight (GTW). If you will be using the hitch to support a non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) it is necessary to use stabilizing straps. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. You can use part #...

  • How Much of Curt Trailer Hitch # C11030 is Visible on 2011 Mercedes C300 4-door Sedan
    I do not have the exact measurement but I do have two images of the Curt trailer hitch # C11030 installed on the 2011 Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan / 4-door for you to check out. As you can see, the hitch is very unobtrusive. With the Curt Stabilizer Strap, # 18050, you'll take the clip end and hook it on the lid of the trunk. I have also included a video of the Support Strap which shows this installation procedure.

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required to Install Curt Trailer Hitch C11030 on a 2009 Mercedes C300
    There actually isn't any fascia trimming required to install Curt trailer hitch # C11030 on the 2009 Mercedes C-Class. I have linked a video showing an example installation as well as the instructions showing the steps to install the hitch. For future reference though using a rotary tool is the easiest way to trim fascia and it also provides the cleanest cut. Other methods include using snips of some kind (depends on the material being cut) as well as a sharp box cutter. If you want to...

  • Stabilizer Strap Recommendation for Use with Curt Trailer Hitch C110303
    With a Class I Curt trailer hitch like the part # C11030 that you referenced you have to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when you carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well.

    The Curt trailer hitch, # C11030, fits all models of the 2010 or 2011 Mercedes C Class sedan, despite ride height. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to review. The hitch comes with the correct ball mount, hitch pin, and clip. You will just need to furnish a properly sized ball. You can use # 19256 for a 1-1/4 inch or # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter. For trailer wiring, you will need top obtain a harness from a dealership. Mercedes does not license their wiring...

  • Can Curt Trailer Hitch # C11030 Handle a Jet Ski Towed by a 2011 Mercedes C-Class Sedan
    The Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11030, for the 2011 Mercedes C-Class Sedan has a gross trailer weight capacity of 2,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. As long as the combined weight of the jet ski and trailer does not exceed either of those capacities it will be able to tow the load. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch comes with a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. For a ball, use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Mercedes E350 Sedan
    We do have a trailer hitch for the 2011 Mercedes E-350 sedan. Take a look at Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11001. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. If you plan on doing some towing, the hitch does come with the recommended ball mount. You can use ball # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). Trailer Hitch # C11030 that you have referenced is designed to fit 2008 - 2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedans so it will not fit a 2011 E-Class.

  • Is There a Single Hitch to Fit 2004 Mercedes C-Class and 2010 Mercedes C-Class?
    There are trailer hitch receivers that will fit each of your Mercedes, though there is not one that can fit either/or or is in any way transferable. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C11824, is a confirmed fit for either the sedan or wagon version of the 2004 Mercedes C-Class. This hitch has a 1-1/4-inch receiver opening and has a Class I rating, which means the hitch's maximum tongue weight is 200 lbs and max gross trailer weight is 2,500 lbs. Those are identical dimensions and capacities...

  • Recommended Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-300
    We offer one custom fit trailer hitch for the 2008 Mercedes C-Class sedan models, Curt class I hitch # C11030. The recommended drawbar, part # C45521, is sold separately. Bike racks do not have vehicle-specific fits, so you will need to do some measuring to determine how much clearance you will need the rack to have before you can know for certain which ones will work best on your vehicle. Clearance is measured from the hitch pin hole to a point past the bumper. Without having the...

    Yes, as long as you have a hitch installed on your 2011 Mercedes Benz C300 like the Curt Hitch part # C11030 the 2 Bike Rack # S64670 would work well for you. Curt recommends that all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any...

  • Class I Hitch and Class I Bike Racks for 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
    For your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 only a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch is offered, part # C11030 from Curt. There are no 2-inch hitches are made for the car since the available hitch mounting points on the car's frame cannot support more than the 200-lb tongue weight rating of a Class I hitch. (Tongue weight is the downward force on the hitch from the weight of what is installed in it.) The safest solution is to select a Class I bike rack (up to a 2-bike capacity) to use with the...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a Mercedes C350 Coupe/BMW 3 Series Coupe
    I checked on the 2011 Mercedes C350 and there are no hitches available for the coupe models. The # C11030 that you referenced will work on the sedans but not the coupes. Since I do not know what year BMW 3 series you have I can not say for certain if a hitch is available. Email me back and I will let you know if there is one available. I checked and the Thule OutWay Bike Carrier # TH45JV will work on your C350 and every generation of BMW 3 Series coupes so I believe it would be a good...

  • Will Yakima RidgeBack # Y02457 Fit Curt # C11030 on a 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
    The Yakima RidgeBack # Y02457 is an excellent choice to use with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11030 on your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The RidgeBack has an adapter sleeve which allows it to be installed in either a 1-1/4" or 2" trailer hitch receiver. Even though the RidgeBack says it isn't compatible with a Class I hitch that is referring to whether or not the receiver has a weld-stop in it. Since the Curt doesn't you are able to use them together. Please note that per the Curt...

  • Best Method to Transport Cargo and Bikes on 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
    Your cargo weight calculation is correct regarding the 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch made for your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan, Curt part # C11030. The weight of the cargo carrier itself does count against the hitch's 200-lb tongue weight capacity. So a 40-lb carrier does leave you 160-lbs of available net cargo weight. You are limited with carrying capacity with a light-duty Class I hitch. If used with a bike rack, only a 2-bike Class I-compatible rack can be used, such as the Kuat Transfer...

  • Recommendation for Carrying a Bike with a 2010 Mercedes-Benz C300 for Easy Trunk Access
    Since trunk mount bike racks must be removed each and every time the trunk is opened I highly recommend going with a hitch mounted bike rack.

The only trailer hitch that is available for your vehicle is the Curt Class I # C11030 with the 1-1/4" receiver. Because this is a Class I trailer...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Mercedes C300
    The trunk mount bike rack option that best meets the criteria you mentioned would be the Thule OutWay, part # TH45JV. The rack attaches to the vehicle using only 2 rubber coates straps, instead of the 6 straps and buckle arrangement used by other racks. This makes the Raceway very easy to use and allows the rack to be installed or removed in seconds. This carrier comes with locks for both the rack and the bikes to deter theft.
