One word - Excellent! I picked this hitch receiver because I didn't need to cut anything and it used all the existing holes in the frame. I was very impressed with the fish lines for the bolts and how the muffler hanger was re-utilized. I will advise you that taking the muffler off or lowering it is the only way to install the hitch receiver. I was fortunate as the exhaust was not rusty and it came apart easily. One other thing to note is because you don't have to cut anything, the hitch is low. When putting a 2 place Thule rack on the back, it did scrape going up driveways. It was a small concession to not have to cut the valence like every other hitch mandates.

Going on almost 2 years and still awesome! Still looks brand new and handles the bike rack perfectly.

2010 Ford Mustang

I used a floor jack and jack stands to support the vehicle in the air, Installed the hitch in the exact order that the video showed and every thing worked out great. I did not have a ratcheting 1/2" wrench so it slowed things down a bit, still changed it out in under 3 hrs. I have a 2010 Mustang GT convertible and the hitch looked just like the one in video.

2010 Ford Mustang

I was browsing websites looking for a hitch for my 2010 Ford Mustang when I came across and found exactly what I was looking for. I was impressed with the whole experience. And to make everything better, they even have very helpful installation videos with step by step installation guides. If I had to do it all over, I would buy through etrailer again in a heartbeat.


This trailer hitch I installed myself and the instructions were the best I have ever seen and the video also helped. Thank You Danny

Thank you for expediting the shipping. My friend was able to install it in about 3 hours in his garage with a little help from me. Really looks nice and doesn't distract from the Mustang profile.

  • Ball Mount Compatibility with Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2010 Ford Mustang
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11048 is compatible with the Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 11-5/8" Long - 3,500 lbs # C45015 you referenced. You will also need a hitch ball like # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter or # A-82 for a 2 inch diameter. For trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118487. This will connect behind your tail lights and then draw power directly from your battery....

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2010 Ford Mustang
    The Curt hitch part # C11048 is a confirmed fit for your 2010 Ford Mustang GT and will be a great hitch to use. For trailer wiring you then would want the part # C56088 which is a confirmed fit too. I attached install videos for both these products. For a ball mount you then would want the part # C45572.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2010 Ford Mustang For Rack
    Hey Izzy, So there is only one hitch for your 2010 Ford Mustang, which means there isn't any type of alternate recommendation I can offer. For the '10 Mustang you'd have to go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11048. This has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity though so you won't be able to carry your dirtbike on a rack with it; you'd have to look into a trailer to carry it. We don't carry dirt bike trailers, though to use a trailer you'll need a 4-way for the lights, and for your...

  • How Much of the Curt # C11048 Class I Receiver Will Be Visible When Installed on 2012 Ford Mustang
    When the Curt # C11048 is installed, the receiver opening and a portion of the cross bars on either side will be visible. Take a look at the photo I edited for you, which should give you a good idea of what everything will look like once the hitch is installed. No fascia trimming will be required.

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2011 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible
    For your 2011 Ford Mustang Convertible, you can use Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11048. This trailer hitch comes with the required ball mount and you can use ball # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). If you plan on ever using the hitch for a non-trailer load like with a bike rack or cargo carrier, Curts warranty requirements state that for their class I and II hitches, you must use a stabilizing strap like # 18050. For trailer wiring, you will need to use the Tow Ready...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # C11048 Fit 2011 Ford Mustang Convertible, Stabilizer Strap Recommendation
    The Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11048, is designed to fit all models of the 2010 and 2011 Ford Mustang including the convertible model. According to Curts warranty, on all Curt class I and II trailer hitches, a stabilizing strap must be used on all non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers. You can use Curt Stabilizer Strap # 18050, or another strap of your choosing as long as it supports the load. I have included a link to the numerous straps we carry below. There is no specific...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and 2-Bike Rack for a 2010 Ford Mustang
    For your 2010 Ford Mustang, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11048 which is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. As long as you do not have the GT/CS, California Special, Shelby GT, or GT500 edition then this hitch will work well for you. It is currently the only option we have for this vehicle. In order to maintain the lifetime warranty, you will need to use part # 18050 for all non-towing applications like a bike rack. Then for a bike rack, I...

  • Recommendation for Carrying Two Motorcycles with a 2010 Ford Mustang
    In order to carry the 2 motorcycles with a 2010 Ford Mustang, the best option would be to use a trailer. The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, # Y08106, is a roof rack on wheels and would not work for your application. First, if you do not already have a trailer hitch for the Mustang, I recommend the Curt Hitch, # C11048. It will fit all models, including the GT, but not a GT/CS, Shelby GT, or GT500. This hitch comes with the recommended ball mount which should be used in the rise position...

  • Can a 2010 Ford Mustang Tow a Trailer
    I looked up the owners manual for a 2010 Ford Mustang and it states it is rated to two up to 1,000 lbs. There are no air shocks available though you should not need them; when we installed the Curt hitch on a 2010 Ford Mustang it was more than 11 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver which isn't super high but is definitely okay to tow with. We do have the hitch, wiring and rest of the set up you need in order to tow if you'd like. Here are the parts you'd need for your 2010...
