This is a beautiful hitch. I bought it to replace a different hitch on my car that hung down too low. This hitch is higher than my muffler so my clearance is excellent. It took me three hours to remove the old hitch and install the new one by myself. Five gallon buckets work excellently to hold up my muffler and to rest the new hitch on while installing.




by:

Hitch arrived on date predicted by shipping information. Although one corner was protruding from box, there was no damage as the hitch is made of thick metal, powder coated and is tough. I immediately placed my 2019 Ford Edge on jack stands and followed the instructions. Using just hand tools (no fancy battery powered ratchet driver like in the video) the hitch was installed in just under an hour. Wife secured bicycle rack into hitch, put her bicycle on hitch and went riding.

Wonderful customer service. Lori B. answered all of my questions and addressed concerns I had. Received my order in 2 days! Had the hitch installed in less than an hour. Now I won’t have any trouble hauling my mower. Excellent quality and looks great! Would definitely recommend this company to anyone!

Fast shipping and high quality products. The installation was made simple with the online instructional video. I will buy from etrailer in the future.

Great product at a great price. This is my forth hitch I bought from etrailer, always great service and fast delivery. Install directions are clear, straightforward, and detailed. Installation went as planned, took about 1 hour.

Just finished the install of the Curt 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver on my 2016 Ford Edge. Overall install went very well but I'm convinced that the only reason was because of the excellent install video available through your website. I'd still be trying to figure out what to do if all I had was the install instructions that came with the hitch, they are terrible. Also glad you included the (4) fish wires instead of just the (2) shown in the video. Was able to install it by myself with the help of an extra short piece of rope to hold the hitch in place while installing the hardware.


Comments
Everything is good! The hitch still looks like brand new. No rust.

Easy to install, but the instructions were a little vague about trimming the rear bumper bezel. I have to remove it to make everything get together. Also, I would highly recommend that you discuss that the bolts/metal bar pieces being fed into the end of the frame - the best access point behind the bumper cover. I discovered that by some of the drawings, but it wasn't a confident way. it can be done that way. The hitch installed very easily, but the trimming of the bumper bezel (lower bumper) and the two side pieces took a little time. Yep, I would order it again. It took about 3 1/2 hours to install because I was cautious.

Product was delivered as promised and is a quality product. The installation was more than I wanted to do so my local mechanic installed in a couple of hours.

It works fine for my application.

The hitch is really heavy duty. Arrived on schedule. Just purchased a new car so I needed a hitch to mount a bike rack on it to transport bikes to remote places.

hitch for the Ford Edge fit just fine. was a little tricky installing.
biggest surprise was the magic door that wanted to open and close ever time we tried to get a nut started on the hidden attach bolts.
Good product but requires patience to install.

It was easy for me because I installed the same hitch on my 2013 edge before I sold it. Thank you for your help.

well made, install wasn't as easy as advertised, for 2015 Ford Edge Sel, steps were left out about accessing the rear frame openings, the entire rear fascia, would need to be removed to do so, I cut the side holes larger to install the hardware, it fit well and happy w/ the overall finished product.

  • Which 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch for 2019 Ford Edge Titanium for Carrying Thule Bike Rack
    For your 2019 Ford Edge the only hitch Class we offer in the 1-1/4 inch hitch is a Class II part # C12140 which will work with both Class I and Class II accessories so this will work great for you. In case you were curious Thule 1-1/4 inch hitch bike racks are Class I compatible. Yakima's are only Class II.

  • Does Hands Free Liftgate of Ford Edge Still Work with Curt hitch C121402 Installed
    You will still be able to activate the rear liftgate of your Ford Edge with the Curt hitch part # C12140 installed. If you check out the install video I attached you can see that our installer was able to still activate the liftgate with this foot. Fast forward to the 1:10 mark to see it. You'll notice he kicked just to the right of the hitch opening.

  • Does Curt Hitch for 2017 Ford Edge Titanium Allow Hands Free Liftgate to Function
    The Curt hitch part # C12140 that you referenced is confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Ford Edge Titanium. It will also allow you to still operate the hands-free liftgate of your vehicle as well. You just will need to swing your foot to either side of the hitch opening instead. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford Edge SE To Carry Bike Rack
    The best choice for a trailer hitch for carrying a bike rack with your 2018 Ford Edge SE is the Draw Tite part # 75234 as it has the 2 inch hitch size you want, has plenty of weight capacity, and also is only option with a concealed crosstube which makes it less visible and helps with ground clearance. I attached an install video and picture for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch With 1-1/4 Inch Receiver for 2017 Ford Edge to Carry Bike Rack
    We do carry a hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver for your 2017 Ford Edge. The Curt # C12140 is a Class II hitch that is a complete bolt-on installation that, according to the linked instructions, will take a professional mechanic just a half-hour to install. There are a couple notes to consider with this hitch - the hands-free Liftgate sensor on your Edge will be limited to areas away from the center of the hitch where the receiver is; it will still activate, just on the sides of the receiver....

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford Edge Sport and Bike Rack
    I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 75234 for your 2018 Ford Edge Sport to carry your bike rack. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and is a fit for the Sport model of Edge. If your bike rack has a 1-1/4" shank then the trailer hitch you need is the Curt # C12140 which is also a fit for your '18 Edge Sport. The Curt is a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver and with this hitch Curt does recommend using Stabilizing Straps # 18050 with all accessories such as...

    It all depends on the bike rack you are using. If the bike rack is compatible with just 1-1/4 inch (Class II) or 1-1/4 inch (Class II) and 2 inch hitches then you would be fine with Curt trailer hitch # C12140 for your 2018 Ford Edge Sport provided the combined weight of the bikes and rack does not exceed 350 pounds. For this hitch Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their warranty...

  • Recommended Class II Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ford Edge Titanium
    I do have a solution for you, however the Curt Class II Trailer Hitch # C12036 referenced in your question is not confirmed to fit your 2017 Ford Edge Titanium Model. For a Class II hitch that will fit your Ford Edge Titanium, I instead recommend the Curt Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C12140. This custom-fit hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation. It will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and has a 3,500 pound towing weight capacity....

  • Choosing a Kuat Bike Rack for Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Ford Edge
    I'd be happy to help you pick out a Kuat bike rack to go with your Curt 1-1/4" Hitch # C12140 on your 2017 Ford Edge! My personal favorite is the NV 2.0 Base # BA12B because of the Matte Black finish which gives it an aggressive look, plus it has all of the best features from the regular NV 2.0 bike rack (highest weight rating, easy-to-use features, and locks) minus the bike repair stand. If you're still needing some help just let me know what bikes you're needing to transport and I...

  • Best 1-1/4" Hitch for 2017 Ford Edge
    We only have one 1-1/4" hitch for the Ford Edge and that is the Curt Class II Trailer Hitch # C12140. It has a great ground clearance of 13". It is not a hidden hitch, and I attached a video of this hitch install if you want to see exactly how it looks on a vehicle. The selection is limited for 1-1/4" hitches for this vehicle because the 2017 Ford Edge is capable of carrying/towing loads heavier than Class 2 hitches can. It's often better to have the option of carrying heavy loads and...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Hitch Bike Rack for 2015 Ford Edge
    Your 2015 Ford Edge could be equipped with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch like Curt # C12140 or a 2-inch Class III type like # 75234. You can check the safety sticker on the hitch to see its Class rating and its tongue weight (TW) capacity, or you can measure the receiver opening. An article on hitch sizes is linked. My favorite rack type for a biking family is the swing-away type such as the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 which fits 2-inch hitches. This swings over to the passenger side...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ford Edge Sport
    For your 2016 Ford Edge Sport I recommend the 2-inch Class III hitch option over the 1-1/4-inch Class II since it will give you a better safety margin for handling the weight of your chosen bike rack and bikes. For that you would want the part # 75234. Plus a 2-inch hitch will be able to work with more accessory items, such as a cargo carrier like # C18151, in case that is ever in your future plans. Considering the small price difference, a Class III hitch like # 75234 is usually the...

  • Best Hitch for 2017 Ford Edge SEL for Ground Clearance
    I have a solution for you, but the class of the hitch does not necessarily effect the clearance and has more to do with the weight range of the trailer it can tow. If clearance is the main concern, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13234 since it provides the best clearance with 13" from the top of the receiver to the ground. Additionally, Curt hitches typically have the most durable powder coatings that will translate to a more durable hitch...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2018 Ford Edge Sport and Electric Mountain Bikes
    If it were me I would choose Draw-Tite hitch # 75234 for the 2018 Ford Edge Sport because it is the most hidden out of all the options. Only the receiver will be visible once installation is complete. And no strap is required when using a bike rack. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. Since e-bikes are so heavy only certain bike racks will have the capacity to carry them. I would go with the Sport Rider # HLY84FR. This rack is rated for 80 pounds per bike. It...

    Yes, we have three trailer hitch receiver options for your 2017 Ford Edge with the Sport package part # 75234, part # C13234, and part # C12140. I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13234 as this hitch will not require near as much effort to install in comparison to the similar Draw-Tite hitch receiver. It is a Class III hitch receiver with a 2" opening. This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your Ford Edge's frame with no welding required. Depending on...

    Your 2018 Ford Edge Sport can be fitted with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch or 2-inch Class III type and in such cases we always recommend going with the larger 2-inch option since it will have a higher weight capacity and will be more compatible with most of the available hitch-mount accessories. I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 75234 for your Edge Sport. This hitch offers no-drill installation and will give you a 675-lb tongue weight rating and 4500-lb towing capacity. The instructions...

    That's going to depend on the hitch you have on your 2015 Ford Edge. If you have a 2 inch hitch like the part # 75234 then a 2 inch Kentucky hitch cover like the part # AMG100222 would fit just fine as the holes of it will line up. If instead you had a 1-1/4 inch hitch like the part # C12140 you would need the 1-1/4 inch version of this cover, part # AMG102929.

I recommend the Curt Class III 2" C13234 receiver because it is more versatile in the long run. There a lot more accessory options like bike racks and cargo carriers that fit a 2" receiver. If you decide to tow a small trailer in the future the 2" is a better option as well. If you need a bike rack, I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0...

    Any time a vehicle has both 1-1/4-inch and 2-inch hitches available for it we tend to recommend the larger 2-inch size. There are several good reasons. Typically there is not much increase in cost, but there is usually a substantial increase in weight capacity. For example, the 1-1/4-inch hitches like Curt # C12140 usually have a tongue weight (TW) rating of no more than 350-lbs, but the 2-inch Class III hitches like Draw-Tite # 75234 and Curt # C13234 have TW ratings that are roughly...
