2017 Toyota Prius

Perfect fit and the instruction video was excellent. I’ve always purchased from and never been disappointed on products and services. I do recommend leveling the hitch before final torque. Thanks again for helping me with my towing life!!!

2018 Toyota Prius

Nice hitch. Great service as usual. T hanks

All is well as it should be. Thanks
Roger - 06/19/2022


Excellent service again on the hitch for my 2018 Prius IV Touring. The videos and documentation were very helpful. It did take two of us to do the install and for amateurs there is a learning curve (how the clips come out, etc.) but we completed the install in an hour and a half. It is solid and looks like it came installed from the factory. I am very pleased with the product, my third from this company.

A year out and the hitch is working like a champ. Worthy product, that has worked just as I hoped.
John - 06/18/2021


After watching the video, the undercarriage plastic was easy to remove. The hitch fit well behind the bumper. All plastic was returned to it's locked place.
Get the wiring harness! Well worth it. Thanks etrailer!


Customer service agent was excellent, he was very friendly and went out if his way to make sure I received the correct hitch for my vehicle. The installation video on their website was also excellent, it made a fairly difficult install go smoothly. Thank you for a wonderful online experience.


Great product, great price, perfect installation instructions. Curt and knocked it out of the park. I just finished the installation and it went perfectly, right down to accurate measurements for the cutouts on the under body panels. Thank you to everyone involved in the hitch manufacturing and installation instructions development.


Hitch was back ordered for a while. Once it arrived, easy to self install. Install videos were great. I use this light hitch for a bike rack. Perfect for that application.

2016 Toyota RAV4

Works like a champ!
Installed on our
2016 Toyota Prius in about 90 minutes. Read the instructions, watch the install video and grab an extra set of hands and you'll have it installed in no time!
We are using it with a two-bike mount Yakima Holdup and a 4" - 2" to 1 1/4" adapter riser (We currently have a 2" hitch on our RAV4, so we can swap the rack between cars). Sways a little bit, but some black duck tape around the 1 1/4 inch adapter eliminate most sway.


I am pleased with the final look of the hitch on the car. The steps to get there were simple. Ordering was easy, shipping was free and arrived on time. After watching the video on installation, I realized that it would be a lot easier on a lift than lying on the ground with a roller board. I had the local Toyota dealer mount it. He raved about how perfect the fit was and said it was the best designed hitch for a Prius that he had ever worked with.


Product: Excellent. Not a flimsy hitch. Very well made. Price: Better than Amazon. Shipping: 4 days as estimated. Arrived without a scratch. Amazon estimated 5 weeks. Instructions: Great. Video very helpful. Customer Service: Great. Communicated when shipped and upon arrival. Appearance: Exactly as described. Installation: Not difficult. Follow instructions. 2 to 3 hours without a lift or ramps. Overall a wonderful customer experience. Small businesses rock!

Ford Edge

The receiver works great and is plenty sturdy,
got a local garage to install it after seeing from the video how involved the process is for a Prius Prime. The garage confirms that it went just fine, but is not simple.
On the usage side, good news and bad.
Good: The hitch sits well back of the bumper's outer edge so is not very visible to passersby. for someone concerned about marring the car's looks this would be a big plus.
Bad: Being well back, it is more difficult to mount my bicycle rack to this receiver than it was on my previous one, which was also on a Prius. If you have a place to park such as the edge of a wall or pit while mounting to the receiver, no problem. For me the rack is kept at the back of my garage with rather poor lighting and a level floor. I think next time I'll use a dolly to get under there.

Toyota Tacoma

After a year I sold the Prius and bought a Tacoma, but within that year I used the hitch to travel between Florida, west Virginia, Tennessee, north Carolina, Georgia and Arkansas with two mountain bikes and a stabilization strap for my bike rack, not only was I getting 45-50mpg but the car didn't even struggle , the rack is very well built and trailer support was amazing in getting it to me.

Toyota Prius

Your website and purchase was easy and pretty accurate about matching the product w my car model and year (2018 Prius). The product got shipped on time to my address and the item was in perfect condition.
On the installation, it took some time but it was nice to have a second person to help me. Specially someone who has power tools. The video really helps make things go faster and not make any mistakes.
I am using it to install a bike rack since I don't want to place it on top of my car.
I would definitely recommend your product to a friend.

2018 Toyota Prius

I tried installing this myself, but I don't have a socket wrench and so I ended up hiring some professional help to install. For the cutouts to the plastic baffles, I sealed them with Gorilla tape for extra protection. I used a CZC AUTO Expandable Hitch Cargo Carrier Bag which fit perfectly in the rack. The whole system performed flawlessly on my 5000 mile cross-country trip. The attached picture shows the rack and bag on the tail end of my Prius with the Habitent I used for camping.

Toyota Prius

Excellent product, delivery, and design! As advertised it was a challenge to install, but well worth the effort. Being full time RV'ers we tow our Prius on a dolly and need to move the dolly occasionally. This dolly is too heavy to move very far by hand. I think this hitch will serve us well.


Easy to pick out the correct hitch for my call. Install worked out great.


Beefy hitch. The install went well. I was able to complete the installation without fully removing the outside bumper shell. I just remove the bumper and some of the connectors at each end then pulled the shell back. I believe it made the reinstall easier.

2019 Toyota Prius

Tow hitch makes a solid connection via the bumper bolts. That part is easy. Installation is definitely a 10 out of 10 difficulty because of all the Toyota plastic bumper parts that need removing. The eTrailer video is for a 2018, and my 2019 Prius AWD-e is a little different, and some of the tab connectors are difficult to remove. You can't really see them and have to guess how to remove (connectors between the plastic bumper and the metal above the bumper). It's a tight space for your fingers and any screw driver you want to use to depress the locking tabs. Nice part is that it is much easier to put it all back together. :-)

2020 Toyota Prius

Shipped fast. Received what I ordered. Well made. I have not installed Hitch yet but just by looking at it out of the box and the finished manufacturing it should fit properly with out any surprise adjustments.

After installing,The hitch is verry unobtrusive..and looks,works great.
Teodoro D - 10/25/2021


Looks good. Hardly visible under the bumper. The instructions were well written but the adjoining images were impossible to work with, too dark and lacking detail. Bolting on the hitch to the frame was far more difficult than it should have been and I had to resort to using guided threaded bolts to align hitch frame with vehicle frame. The instructions about the pin inserts were lacking crucial information.


Good hitch but too short under bumper, need to to be out more about 2”


Great bike rack on my Prius


This is a great hitch. And the ease of installation was a wonder. I’m a church pastor with very little practical skill and I was able to put this together with quite easily (I did watch an installation video that was helpful). It is solid and looks great on the car!


Been a year, traveled 2 bikes from CA to AR, along with weekly trips, and long road trips and so far no issues.

2016 Toyota Prius

The install wasn’t as bad, it did take some patience though. I’d say the install took me about an hour and a half. I haven’t added a bike yet but I took the car for a drive and the bike rack (hitch) didn’t budge at all. So the real test would be the bikes when they come in.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch

  • Use the Curt-Supplied Bolts or OEM Bolts/Washers
    You will want to use the new hardware that came with your Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11473. The included hardware does not require the OEM washers. Curt determined that the OEM bolts and washers were not long enough to engage all of the threads on the bumper, so they have included new flange bolts that won't require the washers.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11473 is confirmed to fit your 2021 Toyota Prius Prime. I spoke with Curt and they verified that this hitch will fit the Prius Prime.

  • Curt Stabilizing Strap Still Required for Curt C11473 Class I Hitch on 2017 Toyota Prius

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Confirmed to Fit a 2018 Toyota Prius Prime
    I contacted Draw-Tite about the trailer hitch receiver # 24966. They haven't had the chance to test it on a 2018 Toyota Prius Prime yet but they believe it'll carry over. This is only the second year of the current generation of the Prius Prime so it's unlikely Toyota has made enough changes to make the hitch not fit. Also, the Curt hitch for the 2017, part # C11473, is confirmed by Curt to fit the 2018 and it installs in the same fashion as the Draw-Tite. So unfortunately I can't confirm...

Curt on the other hand has carried over the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11473 as being a confirmed fit for your 2018 Prime.

  • Which Hitch for 2018 Toyota Prius Weighs the Least
    It's not by much but the Draw Tite hitch # 24966 for your 2018 Toyota Prius weighs the least at 21 lbs whereas the Curt # C11473 weighs 23. I really like the look of the Draw Tite as only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper. I know some Prius owners are super concerned about anything that might hurt fuel mileage which may be why you are asking about weight, but with only the hitch opening hanging below you'd have the least amount of potential wind resistance there as well.

  • Is Stabilizing Strap Required for Curt Hitch on 2017 Toyota Prius
    You do not need to use the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap # 18050 with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11473 that fits your 2017 Toyota Prius. Curt did previously require the use of the strap with accessories like bike racks to maintain the warranty of their hitches, but that is no longer the case. So you do not have to use the strap for the warranty and you will not compromise your Prius without the strap. It was simply for added stabilization but by no means is going to be harmful...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2017 Toyota Prius
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2017 Prius is the Draw-Tite # 24966. This is a class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I recommend this hitch over the Curt Hitch # C11473 because any non-trailer loads used in the Curt hitch requires the use of a stabilizing strap like part # 18050. It can be tough finding a location to attach the strap. The installation is similar for both of these hitches as they use the same attach points on the vehicle frame. Both of these...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Prius Prime with Curt Hitch Installed
    For a Class I hitch like yours we do not recommend the use of hitch adapters since they cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed on by 50 percent and add quite a bit of movement. Instead we'd recommend a bike rack like the Thule Camber # TH9058 that has a longer shank that will fit underneath the bumper and not cause any fit issues. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well that shows it installed on a similar 2016 Toyota Prius.
