Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11435

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (51 Customer Reviews)

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


Hitch installation was straight forward. It’s best to remove the muffler entirely rather than working with it dropped down and hanging. The hitch works perfectly with our 10 cu.ft. Yakima box attached to a DIY aluminum frame that I built attached to a 1.25” steel drawbar. We can now take 2-4 week road trips with ample storage

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Added a hitch on a 2019 Miata RF for a bike carrier on the rear that I can detach. Fit on the Miata is great, instructions were easy to follow, installed it in a single afternoon. Great item.

2017 Fiat 124 Spider

Great 1 1/4 hitch. It is exactly what I need for my bike carrier on my 2017 Fiat 124. It's tucked under the number, so when the bike rack is not attached, you can't see it at all, which is nice.


I mounted this hitch on a 2018 Fiat Lusso Spider. The hitch fit perfectly and is almost invisible. It was really easy to remove the muffler to install. I would have given 5 stars except that the Facia support brackets used for the Miata are not the same as what is needed, see picture, for the Spider. I fabricated my own brackets and all is well.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

OMG this was a sweet install. Superbly engineered and I was done in about 2 hours doing it solo.. Such small visibility and the paint job on it was outstanding, powdered coated? Instructions great, hardware was top notch, torqued the bajesus out of it no fear of snapping, and the bracket to hold the bumper trim was super solid. Could not rate any higher. Added a picture with my bike rack but mainly installed to pull a tag along trailer.

No issues. Working great.

2018 Mazda Miata

My installation was not for a Miata, but for my 2018 Fiat 124 Spider. The instructions were very clear and also apply to the Fiat. The muffler should be removed rather than just lowered, it makes the installation so much easier. The facia brackets that are included are Miata specific, they will not fit the Fiat. In time I will fashion some myself. The most time consuming part of this project was making the access holes larger, but even that only took about 10 minutes to do both. The clearance of the receiver to the light pod is not an issue for me since I am using this product for a bike rack. Some tips for installation
1. After fishing the carriage bolts into position, do NOT remove the fish wire until you are ready to put on the nut, it's easy to lose the bolt in the frame.
2. Install one side of the receiver at a time, it's heavy and nearly impossible to hold up to the frame to line up all four bolts.
3. Take off that muffler, you'll be glad that you did.
This is a great product, and ready to install. I highly recommend it.


Well made, and came with the hardware needed to install it. Very specialized hardware for fishing the bolts through the frame. Very good instructions as well.


Designed and marketed for the Mazda MX-5 (ND), this hitch also bolts onto the Fiat 124 Abarth and Spider.

Ideal for bicycle racks, tire racks, and cargo trays. NOT recommended for heavy loads (greater than 300 pounds) or trailers.


Quality product at a reasonable price. Installation idea was excellent and resulted in no need to read and follow written instructions


The hitch was worth the long wait for it to be available. It was installed by professionals, and it has been a great help in transporting our e-bicycles.


Hitch was not too difficult to install, but was definitely easier with two people. The instructions say to drop the exhaust, but it is easier if you remove the muffler all together, which is only two extra bolts.

It looks great installed, even with the extra bumper lip on the Club trim level. It sits very close to the bumper and looks very high quality when installed.

2016 Mazda Miata

My order was delivered quickly and it installed very easily on my 2016 Miata. Special thanks to the eTrailer how-to video!


So far so good. Installation was easy with the right tools. Fishwire system for install is super slick, works far better than it looks like it should. Really like the way this attaches to the frame - uses heavy duty hardware in shear (how bolts are designed to be used) and doesn't put bending loads on any frame welds like some of the more expensive options. Also like that it's all one piece instead of hideaway - the hideaway hitches wobble a lot when used with a bike rack or cargo tray.

Highly recommend, and as a bonus, it's cheap!

Still works great after a year, still highly recommend.

It fits really nice. So far so good

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Installed on a 2015 MX-5 Club Sport (with factory ground effects) and a after-market Good Win Racing muffler. Used some inexpensive car ramps to have easier access underneath. Got some metal cutting bits online to grind the frame holes bigger (the only 'annoying' step) with my electric drill, which was easier than expected. Rest of the installation was a breeze. I found it easier to remove the muffler rather than 'lower it' as the instructions say. Once installed, everything fit factory perfect (someone suggested the Club Sport ground effects may require trimming, that's not true, it doesn't touch anything). Now, the GWR Muffler did 'touch' since it is a little fatter than factory. That was solved by going some longer/adjustable muffler hangers (lowering muffler 1 inch). Took about 30 minutes to install, plus 30 minutes messing with drill and making holes larger, and 15 minutes to remove existing muffler. That's being careful and patient. I'd say this install is a 6/10, not a 10/10. Single person not a problem.


It's a trailer hitch installation was easy and it pulls a tailer

2019 Mazda Miata

I installed this 1-1/4" hitch on my 2019 Mazda Miata RF and it works great for my Kuat Sherpa bike rack (that I also purchased at eTrailer; they have the best prices!). I generally only carry one road bike or one mountain bike on the rack, but it and the hitch seem very sturdy; much thicker metal than the lightweight Miata frame to which it is installed.

I opted to remove the bumper cover and the bumper and install the 4 bolts that way, rather than enlarge the holes in the car's frame with a die grinder or dremel as recommended by the instructions for 2 of the bolts. When you remove the bumper you will have access to the hollow "rails" that comprise the main structure of the car's frame, and it is very easy to put in the bolts into the existing holes without grinding any holes bigger than they were from the Mazda factory. You have to drop the exhaust/muffler to do this install (regardless of which approach you take for the bolts), but it goes back into its original position so nothing to complain about other than the usual rubber exhaust hangers being stiff and hard to remove by hand.

The install took a couple hours but was not very difficult; for some steps you may benefit from a pair of extra hands (like raising/lowering the bumper cover or the hitch itself while you get the first bolts in), but it's possible to do this install on your own in 2-3 hours.


I was unable to do the installation because it required dropping the muffler so I brought it to a shop. The beauty of the trailer hitch on my 2017 Fiat 124 spider is that it cannot be seen.


Installation was ok,with the it was the usual foreign car stuff.Never used hitch,no longer have vehicle.Never had a problem with"Any Curt Products"..


Quick delivery and easy install and it fits perfectly. What more can you ask for!


The hitch installed easily. I did remove my muffler just so I had more room to install. Great product.

This hitch was a good price, super easy to install and it is perfect for my bike rack and towing my trailer with track tires and equipment.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Haven't yet installed the hitch, But it looks good. It will be barely visable.

Mazda Miata

Extremely happy with the trailer hitch for the Miata MX-5. Instructions were very good and the product was absolutely top-notch. I will be using the trailer hitch for a bike rack and also for a carrier. I would not hesitate for a moment recommending this product because it is excellent.


Looks awsome but it’s hidden . Could not be more happy. Easy install

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata

I wanted a trailer hitch for my new Miata. The etrailer website was simple to use in making my selection, and it was delivered within a week of ordering. I recommend using etrailer to anyone in the market for a hitch.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # C11435 be Visible after Installed on 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11435 referenced in your question is a Class I trailer hitch and is confirmed to fit your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. The hitch will always be somewhat visible when looking at your vehicle from behind, whether or not it is being used. The installed hitch though will blend in nicely under your MX-5 along with the exhaust and frame. I have attached an image that shows what the MX-5 will look like with the hitch installed as well as the installation details...

  • Understanding the Towing Safety Information Table in Curt Hitch Instructions for a 2017 Mazda Miata
    It took me a couple of minutes but I finally found that table. That is actually in the instructions for the hitch # C11435 for the 2017 Mazda Miata. The table is laid out kind of weird. It does make it look like the top row of numbers is tongue weight. But that is the gross trailer weight and the tongue weight is usually 10 to 15 percent of that. So usually a Class I hitch is rated up to 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 200 pounds tongue weight. But with that said you also have to...

  • Kuat Sherpa that Can Fit Curt Hitch for 2020 Mazda MX-5
    Using a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch adapter isn't my favorite solution for situations like yours as the adapters end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half and also add quite a bit of movement. Since lighter duty vehicles like your 2020 Mazda MX-5 only have the 1-1/4 inch hitch size available the best recommendation I can make is a rack designed for this hitch size like the Sherpa that fits this hitch size part # SH12G.

It will not void any warranties. It has a class I rating so as long as you are using a class I rated bike rack there won't be any issues.

  • Would Kuat Sherpa Work Well with 2016 Mazda Miata with Curt Hitch Installed
    It can be a bit interesting fitting the stabilizer strap part # 18050 to a platform bike rack like the Kuat Sherpa part # SH22B but basically you have to run the strap from the trunk lid to the base of the rack where the rails meet shank of the rack. This would be an excellent bike rack though. Kuat makes some of the best bike racks available so I know you will like it with your 2016 Mazda Miata with Curt hitch # C11435 installed.
