2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Had some issues installing - there appears to be an extra plate on the 2020 Bolt that needs an extra nut to be removed and then added back between the hitch rack and the nut. Krzysztof's review shows the plate. The reason for the 1 star review is the hitch doesn't hold my rack firmly. There is significant bounce using the Kuat NV 2.0 rack with a single MTB (~25lbs) on it. With 2 bikes on the rack, it seems unsafe. Maybe the rack is too heavy for this hitch, but the rack (50lbs) plus the MTB (25 lbs) is well below the rating of 100lbs.


Comments
Thank you for the review! I wanted to first share a link about what a normal amount of movement looks like. Secondly, an anti rattle device may take care of any other excessive bouncing. I shared a link to our anti rattle devices.

The unit arrived in a couple of days. Just a big box with a bit of heavy steel in it. Thanks for no bubble wrap to landfill. Instructions were terse. I followed them. They were Much better than the [online's]. The whole process took about an hour. Looks great. Should easily hold up a couple of Tadpole trikes. Hope it doesn’t burn battery too fast.

good stuff for my 2020 Chevy bolt EV LT. The only reason it is not 5 star is the quality of mounting instructions. I followed up the ECO trailer mounting video and ended up having issues with CURT hitch installation which is different. Once figured it out everything was fine. See pictures for reference. whole thing took me 2hrs just by myself with frequent breaks

It is perfect! It arrived in short order and was easy to instal. I am using it with a bike rack, so I did not need any electrical connections, but that can be installed with this hitch.

We use the hitch for carrying a bike rack and towing a utility trailer on our Chevy Bolt. The hitch was easy to install and works great.

2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV

This hitch fit my 2017 Chevy Bolt perfectly. I carry bikes on a Yakima hitch-style rack, and pull a small solar power trailer when we're working remotely. I've even pulled a 6'x12' flatbed trailer with mulch on this hitch with my Bolt (suspension complains, but car has plenty of power). Now I just have to figure out how to wire into the Bolt for trailer wiring. I hired a friend's shop to install the hitch, so can't speak to ease if installation, but they had no problems.

Well built, easy installation. The explanation and picture in Step 2 could be better, though, because it wasn't obvious where the bolts were that had to be removed.

This is the third trailer hitch that I have purchased from eTrailer. They have all been easy to install and have served us well. One has been on our Prius for years and there is no sign of rust, so the paint coating is solid.

This hitch was surprisingly easy to install and looks good. I was afraid it would require a lot of cutting and then stick out, but it's unobtrusive and only required a small cutout from the facia.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch



  • Is Stabilization Strap Needed for Curt Trailer Hitch on 2019 Chevy Bolt EV
    A stabilization strap is not required when utilizing the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11457 on your 2019 Chevy Bolt EV. For a long time Curt did require the use of additional stabilization straps for their lower rated hitches when using hitch-mounted accessories (bike racks, cargo carriers, etc) to maintain the warranty, but somewhat recently they have eliminated this requirement. This is why you may see questions here and there addressing this, as they are simply older pages...

  • Will I Have to Modify the Bumper of My 2017 Chevrolet Bolt to Install a Trailer Hitch
    In researching the installation instructions for the Crut Class I Trailer Hitch, # C11457, you will need to trim a 4-1/2 inch long and a 2-1/4 inch wide slot on the under side of your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV's bumper fascia. The exact instructions from Curt are as followed: "Mark out a 2.25" x 4.5" section using masking tape. Trim lower fascia using aviation shears. NOTE: All dimensions are approximate, confirm fit prior to installation." I attached a picture of the trim diagram that...

  • Capacity for The Curt Hitch for 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
    The capacities for the Curt Hitch part # C11457 are how much the hitch itself can tow/carry. These capacities are separate from the capacities of the vehicle although they are related. What you would need to do is determine the towing capacities of the vehicle and then go with the lower rated figures between the hitch and the vehicle. Actually the hitch has a 2,000 lb total trailer weight capacity and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. From our research it looks to be 100 lbs tongue weight...

    Thank you for the photos, and I do see that metal piece there interfering with the Curt Hitch # C11457 on your 2020 Chevy Bolt EV. I can tell you that we have not seen this before, and I called Curt who also said it's something they have not had any customers reach out to them about it and have never come across this issue. That is a bracket for a harness which looks to be sticking out more than it should, possibly causing interference. Curt told me the best thing to try and do was use...

  • Is Stabilization Strap 18050 Required For Curt Hitch on 2020 Chevy Bolt EV
    For some hitches it is required by Curt to use the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap # 18050 in order to maintain the warranty of the hitch, though for many they have backed off of that recently. Thankfully, the Curt hitch that fits your 2020 Chevy Bolt EV does not require the use of the strap; the hitch that fits your vehicle is the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11457 If you take a look below at the installation instructions you can see that Curt recommends the use of the...

  • Is Trimming Required To Install Trailer Hitch On 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    The trailer hitch options for a 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV all require minor trimming of an underbody fascia panel. That said, this won't even be visible from outside the vehicle. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11457 however does require the least amount of trimming so this is what I recommend. I have attached a photo below.

  • Required Stabilization Strap For Curt Trailer Hitch On 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    For your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class I - 1-1/4" # C11457 according to Curt's instructions requires stabilization strap # 18050 for any non-trailer load including bike racks and cargo carriers. It is one of the draw-backs to Curt trailer hitch receivers that use without that strap voids warranties. You can see in the attached installation details their requirement at the very top in bold.

  • Recommendation on a Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    Between the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11457, and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch , # 24956, I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch for its better ground clearance. The Draw-Tite hitch's receiver opening sits closer to the hitch cross tube. The location of the receiver will give you more ground clearance over the Curt hitch design.When installing this hitch, minor trimming of the bumper fascia is required. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The...

  • Can SportRack Hitch Bike Racks # SR2703 Be Used in Class I Trailer Hitch
    The Sportrack Bike Rack part # SR2703 that you referenced can fit in Class I hitches like what you have installed on your 2017 Chevy Bolt, but you should note that you would be limited to carrying only 2 bikes with this rack since your hitch is a Class I. Due to the added weight and leverage of a third bike out at the rear of a bike rack Class I hitches should never be used to carry more than 2 bikes at a time.

    Yes, you can use either Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 or Curt trailer hitch # C11457 with the Thule EasyFold bike rack, # TH903202, on your 2017 Chevy Bolt. If it were me I would go with the Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 for 2 reasons. First, Draw-Tite does not require the use of a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads like Curt does. If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need to use stabilization strap # 18050. And second customers have reported that the receiver on the Curt hitch hangs...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
    There is a trailer hitch available for the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. It is Curt hitch # C11457. This is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so you will need a compatible bike rack. The BikeWing, # LGA54FR, is an excellent choice because it is so light weight at just 20 pounds, and holds the bikes by the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. Please note that Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch with a bike rack or cargo carrier...

  • Trailer Hitch Option for a 2017 Chevy Bolt
    No there will only be 1-1/4 inches for the 2017 Chevy Bolt. The issue is that manufacturers match up the vehicle capabilities with the appropriate size hitch. The Bolt just doesn't have the capacity to necessitate a 2 inch trailer hitch because it could easily be overloaded. Curt hitch # C11457 is your best option. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory...

    I would be happy to go over the trailer hitch receiver options for your 021 Chevrolet Bolt EV, but the Curt # C13315 and # C12170 you were looking at are designed for certain years of the Mazda CX-5 and will not fit your vehicle. For your Bolt EV there is the Curt # C11457 that has a 1-1/4" receiver, Draw-Tite # 24956 that has a 1-1/4" receiver, and the EcoHitch # 306-X7359 that has a 2" receiver.
