Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (92 Customer Reviews)

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


A bit more difficult to install on my 2016 Hyundai Tucson than I was expecting, but that was only due to the fact I've never done it before. Once I removed the rubber exhaust hanger it went right into place. All holes lined up perfectly and it was a snug fit onto the frame. Shipping was only 3 days!!

2017 Hyundai Tucson

The hitch has performed all functions as expected. The stabilizing strap suggested by the manufacturer would not work for my 2017 Hyundai Tucson. There is no place to connect it to the vehicle. I have made several long distance trips with two different bike carriers with no issues. I am very reluctant to give five stars for fear of being labeled as a bot or worse, a fluff reviewer. Only the stabilizing strap issue has rendered this a four star review.

This is the second hitch I have purchased from this vendor and I would not hesitate to purchase another for a new vehicle if I have money left from that purchase. The installation videos are GREAT!

2016 Hyundai Tucson

Great product, relatively easy to install. The only hiccup was that my 2016 Hyundai Tucson has the dual exhaust pipes so I had to detach the muffler to wiggle the receiver into place. As others have mentioned, purchasing the $15 exhaust hanger remover pliers and using WD-40 on the rubber bracket did the trick. I'm a 38-year-old female and was able to do it all myself. Once I got the muffler detached, the rest of the job took about 15 minutes.


Installation on my 2017 Tucson was a breeze. Perfect and great price!! Works great with my Curt 2 Bike Rack from e-trailer which is the reason I bought the hitch. Will make it a lot easier to carry the bike to and from the trails without getting mud all inside my Tucson.

2017 Hyundai Tucson

Fast shipping and products were packaged well! I bought a Curt 1.25" receiver hitch for my wife's brand new 2017 Hyundai Tucson Sport as well as a Thule Vertex 2 bike rack. The receiver hitch install was easy enough for me by myself but would've been a lot easier with an extra set of hands! Bike rack looks great installed! Can't wait to test everything out! Thanks!


Does what it needs. Bought just for hitch haul and a bike rack.


Straight forward install and has held up well over the past year


Just installed this hitch and it’s very inconspicuous which is great. Now I’m ready for cycling season. I’m happy with this hitch it was about 30 minutes to install after watching the install video. I did take the muffler mount loose which made it easier. My mom helped me hold it in place so I could get the first bolts in. It was not difficult.

2019 Hyundai Tucson

The hitch receiver fit perfectly on my 2019 Tucson. No adjustments were required. I installed it from the ground easily, but jacked one side of the car up and had to drop the exhaust from the rear-most hanger (only) to be able to slide receiver in. Car came with the holes, and the holes in receiver lined up perfectly, and it was simple to just bolt in. You remove the panels blocking the holes, as described in the installation video. But they are easy to pop off and put back on.

2017 Hyundai Tucson

The hitch fit perfect and took about 1/2 hour to install after watching the installation video. Dropping the one exhaust hanger is required, but a a little WD-40 makes is slide loose easily. Using ramps or a lift make this job simple. This hitch will be used for short distance towing of our pontoon boat and a bike rack.


Good trailer it was easy to put on I found a video on line .I haven't had any problems with it .


I ordered a hitch for my 2020 Hyundai Tucson mainly to haul a bike rack. The product arrived fast and I was able to install it myself in my home garage with out any issues in less than 1 hour. I’m very happy with it.
This is the second time I order from etrailer, it’s always been good.


My wife and I wanted a smaller trailer hitch so that we could bring our bikes with us on camping trips. The 1 1/4 “ Curt trailer hitch I purchased is reasonably priced, good quality, and works perfectly for our needs. Installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. One note: our Tucsons exhaust has dual tailpipes, and I did have to detach it from the hanger at one point to get the passenger side of the hitch over it. No worries. We are very happy with it. Thank you.


Product appears to be of excellent quality and the installation was easy with the provided instructions. Fit and finish were perfect, looks like it will last for many years even with heavy use.

Hitch has been put to use many times and I have not encountered any problems. There are no visible signs of rush or unusual weather and tear. Very pleased with the product

It came so fast it made my head spin! Only took about :30 minutes to install BECAUSE it fit like a glove. After installation I stepped back and could hardly see it... almost hurt my feelings. Small and out of the way, just pulling a small trailer for my kayaks


Easy to install, all required hardware was included. Only thing needed was a wrench and a socket set.


Literally the easiest hitch to install, took me about 15 mins!

2017 Hyundai Tucson

I'm not an auto worker and don't really like to get down and get dirty working on cars. However, this auto is almost new and was CLEAN on the underside.
The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver arrived as scheduled. With the video instructions being spot on it was a breeze installing the Hitch. The job took me about 45 minutes to complete.
Then came the wiring harness. The video was also a great aid with the installation. Eliminating some mistakes and having to re-do some steps, this install took about 90 minutes to complete.
What I had learned here is to go slow, make sure you're following the instructions exactly as sequenced and it's a breeze. having a lift would have helped a lot but I had a couple leveling blocks from my motorhome that I drove the car up onto and that gave me enough space to get the job done.


Fit great and works ws a great investment for my vehicle


Fit perfectly and was easy to install primarily to the etrailer video.
Etrailer was great to deal with and I highly recommend them for products, communication and price.

2016 Hyundai Tucson

The Curt hitch was flawless, all the parts were there and perfect. The bolts fit as advertised. The hitch fit as advertised. Buying from etrailer saved me 150 dollars for the hitch and installation.
The best part of this transaction was the instructional video that etrailer posted. The video was step by step exactly what what needed to be done to install. The only thing I would add is that in less you have a lift like in the video, it helps to jack the vehicle up a little and you may have to remove the muffler holder to get the passenger side portion of the hitch in place. But still that only added less than 5 minutes to the installation. One person, 30 minutes.
Nice part, great instruction = great value for the price.
Thank you,

product is still great, still looks new, great paint job. Looks like it was installed yesterday not a year ago.

My trailer hitch,could’ve been any easier to install
I accomplished this task , in less than 1/2 hour
By myself,perfect engineering

2017 Hyundai Tucson

I had my local mechanic install the hitch, took them about 20 minutes. The install on my 2017 Hyundai Tucson looks great. Its very discreet and snug under the rear bumper. Perfect for my bike rack. Would strongly recommend the product and etrailer. Super easy purchase and arrived in short timeframe.

2017 Hyundai Tucson

Great Product!! Very happy with product, that showed up at scheduled time with no damage to shipping container. Product is built very strong with good craftsmanship and all necessary hardware needed. Your instructional video was very helpful to me for my installation. No problems at all with installation and hitch fits perfectly. I used car ramp to drive vehicle up on to give me more space to work. It only took me under a hour to install with little effort.
Well done to everyone at E-trailer with a great product and service, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Thank you so much for making E-trailer my best choice.


Very pleased with the construction of the hitch. The challenge for a 2017 Hyundai Tuscon Sport is being able to drop the exhaust pipe. I ended up cutting the upper hanger stop off, in order to slip the rubber hanger off. The wiring was more of a challenge. By removing a couple of the interior driver side screws, you can pop the plastic molding off to gain access behind the trunk molding. The steel bed is too strong for the screw in the kit, so I bolted the grounding wire to the vertical rear of the trunk. I also ended up freeing the driver side light wiring and running it down to meet up with the connector, which I ran up through the frame, then threaded the 2nd wiring connector out thru the lighting connection.

Product is still working great - no issues.

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2018 Hyundai Tucson and What Hitch Can I Use
    The Curt # C12241 is rated to tow up to 3500-lbs, but when towing you're always going to be limited to the lowest rated component in your towing setup. From what I'm able to tell by researching, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson only has a towing capacity of 1000-lbs, so I can't advise you that this would be safe for your vehicle. I do recommend confirming this capacity in your vehicle's owner's manual and following the directions there; if it says that your towing capacity is 3500-lbs then you...

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12241 Fit a 2016 Hyundai Tucson
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12241 that you referenced is a custom fit for a 2016 Hyundai Tucson. It is a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver so you will want to make sure your bike rack is compatible with that size receiver. Please note that per the Curt warranty a support strap, like part # 18050 must be used for all non-trailer loads like your bike rack. I have attached a link to an installation video as well as the instructions for you to check out.

  • Best Hitch for the 2018 Hyundai Tuscon Limited 1.6 T?
    Yes the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" part # C12241 that you looked at is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Hyundai Tucson Limited and it offers a straightforward installation process. The hitch offers a 1 1/4" by 1 1/4" receiver tube opening. For better adaptability I strongly recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # 75836 this hitch has the 2" by 2" receiver tube opening and allows you to use a much wider...

  • Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver for 2020 Hyundai Tucson
    The trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2020 Hyundai Tucson is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75836. It's definitely a very good idea to get the trailer hitch with the 2 inch receiver, compared to the Draw-Tite # 36572 or Curt # C12241, both of which have a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The reason is there are so many more - and higher quality - options for accessories like bike racks that fit a 2 inch receiver than the smaller 1-1/4 inch receiver. I have added a photo, as...

  • Which Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Do you Recommend for a 2016 Hyundai Tucson
    The Curt Class II # C12241 and Curt Class III # C13240 are both rated for the same trailer weight and tongue weight so that will not be a concern and both are compatible with your 2016 Hyundai Tucson. The reason I recommend a Class III 2 inch hitch receiver is there are more products that are compatible with them. So if you are going to be adding a ball mount or some other accessory with it, either now or later down the road, you will have more options available to you. I have attached...

  • Trailer Hitch Identification On a 2020 Hyundai Tucson For Bike Rack Options
    It would appear that you have the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12241 on your 2020 Hyundai Tucson. This is a class II hitch that has a maximum tongue rating of 350lbs. Also the 1-1/4" receiver in your pictures does not have the class I tab as seen in the attached picture. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # NV12G for your Tucson. The rack will tilt away from your Tucson allowing you access to the rear cargo area. When not carrying bikes you can fold up the carrier as...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Hyundai Tucson with Dual Exhaust Tips
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13240 is what I recommend for a 2018 Hyundai Tucson. It will fit models with dual exhaust tips as you can see in the photo below, just not Night Edition models. This hitch will be great for towing or hitch mounted accessories like bike racks such as the Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Rack part # TH934XTR which is what I recommend.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2018 Hyundai Tucson Sel Plus
    When we research towing capacities we base it off of what the owner's manual says but for some unknown reason there are no online manuals available for a 2018 Hyundai Tucson. I did take a look at the Hyundai website and as you said it listed the SEL Plus as having a 2,000 lb towing capacity as opposed to the 1,500 lb capacity of the SE and SEL; however, it looks like the SEL Plus only has some interior features differentiating it from the SE and SEL so it would not make sense for the capacity...

    The Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack part # HR200Z will be a confirmed fit for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12241 you have on your 2016 Hyundai Tucson.
