Good day George

My experience
with etrailer was uneventful. Speedy delivery , good product and ease of ordering. When ordering the hitch it read ease of installation 4. Which would be correct. Would have been a 1 if I didn't have to grind the welded nuts off the bumper bracket. Also two of the four holes I had to drill to make them larger to accommodate the installation bolts. I would definitely recommend Etrailer to others. Thank you.

Curt hitch works like it should hasnt failed me yet. No complaints here

For my rad mini bikes . I will surely be a loyal customer after having such a positive experience !!! Christopher and Arthur helped me figure out the correct size hitch I needed for my car and a bike rack to accommodate the weight of my 2 rad mini ebikes . Amazing company and very accommodating and knowledgeable staff .

2006 Chevrolet Malibu

Great product .C12272 Went on easy . Good directions. This product for my 2006 chevy Malibu will let me haul deer in carriage rack and haul leaves and grass clippings to the dump. Had to use adapter to carriage rack for 2 inch. I cut off 6 inches on carriage rack so it didn't stick out so far. Brad, Arena Wi.


Easy to install if you know what you are doing.


the hitch was just as I ordered , and took about 40 min to install. all went well



This hitch worked great. It's a good product at a reasonable price.


Nice hitch


2005 Chevrolet Malibu

  • Can a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Handle 350 Pounds of Tongue Weight
    The Curt trailer hitch receiver, part # C12272, does have a 350 pound tongue weight capacity and is confirmed to fit your 2005 Chevrolet Malibu. With that being said I looked at the owner's manual to your Malibu and the vehicle itself is only rated to tow a maximum of 1,000 pounds and the tongue weight can only be 10 to 15 percent of a trailer's weight. This means your car has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 150 pounds and adding a higher rated hitch isn't going to change that. You're...

  • Is There a Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu
    The only available trailer hitch options for a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu (All Models) is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12272 and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36317 which are both class II rated. Therefore, no you cannot use a class III hitch on a Chevrolet Malibu which is the case for a lot of these smaller vehicles because they simply don't make one for them due to the limited capacities. That said, if you have class III accessories that you want to use there is still...
