2009 Toyota Venza

I installed a Class I hitch and completed the necessary wiring work on my 2009 Toyota Venza in about 4 hours, working alone. The hitch is not very heavy, but it cumbersome to handle with one set of hands - especially for a 69 year old. I plan to use the hitch to tow a small, lightweight utility trailer. The only criticism I have is with the written instructions provided with the wiring package. It would be very difficult to complete the task if one had to try to follow the written instructions. Fortunately I contacted etrailer and was immediately sent a video showing the entire wiring process - very simple. I enthusiastically recommend using etrailer when considering installing a trailer hitch. They respond to questions quickly, and are more than happy to provide assistance.

No problems with the hitch or wiring after a year. I have recommended eTrailer to several friends. I cant say enough about the assistance provided when installing the hitch. I stand by my previous 5-Star rating.

hard to install with one person, ask a freind for help

2015 Toyota Venza

I ordered and received Curt hitch receiver C12341 for my 2015 Toyota Venza AWD. The product arrived within 48 hours and was well packaged and in excellent condition, no scratches, etc.
Using the video link provided by etrailer, the install took no more than an hour and was fairly easy on my vehicle, not even requiring the help of another person. While mechanically inclined, I am not a professional mechanic by any means.
I also ordered and installed the Curt C56079 vehicle wiring kit to go on this same vehicle. It too was relatively easy to install, although it actually took longer to do than the hitch receiver.
Thanks etrailer for providing a great product at a competitive price, along with clear, complete, and free installation instructions!

2013 Toyota Venza

I found myself in a place where the need for a pick-up or a trailer was in order, since i really like my 2013 Toyota venza i chose the later, after shopping on line i thought this looked to meet my needs i have the ability to tow 3500lbs with 500lb tongue weight, so the package showed up in 2 days and i was able to do the install in about 40 minutes , it was as easy as they said it would be, i did need help from my son with balancing the thing, but everything lined up perfectly, the electrical was another story, since you need to basically disassemble the entire rear interior of the vehicle to connect the wiring harness,(ford looks super simple)but the connections worked perfectly and the straps provided were plenty, and the whole thing after it was done looks high and tight, i like it.

2010 Toyota Venza

I put this hitch on a 2010 Venza that has about 64,000 miles on it. It is much easier if the vehicle is new as it took me a little while to find the pre-drilled holes on the car frame as the entire bottom of the car was covered in grime and grease from driving.
I have a dual exhaust on my Venza so both sides of the muffler have to be lowered but that was easy. If you are doing this by yourself you might want to get something to hold up one side of the hitch while to you attaching the other side. Just be careful not to strip the bolts that attach the hitch to the frame. It is a little harder to get the drivers side bolts tightened up as the exhaust/muffler system gets in the way if you have bigger hands. All in all I was very impressed with the quality of this hitch and the service. I would recommend to my friends.


Works perfectly, easy to install.

2015 Toyota Venza

Second Hitch and wiring, fast shipment when I need another it will come from here.

2010 Toyota Venza

I have a 2010 Venza and decided to keep car instead of getting new. Ordered this hitch and had it installed while car was in shop. Works great as only use to carry bike rack. No problem installing.


Great price and speedy delivery. Box was damaged and hitch was protruding from box. No damage however.
Hitch installed in about an hour with no issues. Wiring took a couple hours as I had to run a hot wire from rear of car to battery which was a pain.
Saved about $250.00 by doing this myself.


received product today - the shipping box was pretty well damaged (poor packing of tralier hitch) A few paint scratches where product pushed through on carton.
This is nothing to worry about as long as the product fits and I do not have to return item in damaged box


Product is fine...good selection and good price. This is the second hitch that I've bought from you in the past two months. Have never dealt with a company that does a better job of communicating with a customer ! Web-site, order acknowledgement, shipping information, tracking and order follow-up...will recommend you to anyone who's willing to listen.


2013 Toyota Venza

Recently purchased this for our '13 Venza. With the help of the install guide and video, it all went smoothly. So happy that I purchased it from these guys! Will certainly recommend!

2011 Toyota Venza

The Curt trailer hitch was received timely and exactly as described. The instructions are accurate. The installation was easy. The product quality and fit is excellent. I recommend ETrailer and Curt.


Nice hitch, easy installation, delivery was fast.

The hitch is working great, the wiring is also working out very well.

Toyota Venza

I received the receiver hitch sooner than expected and I couldn't as for a more simple install. I will probably buy another for my other Venza. GREAT TRANSACTION!!??

2014 Toyota Venza

Fit like a glove. Very happy with hitch, instructions and ease of installation. My son and I had it on Venza in less than an hour.


Fast shipping. Great product. Easy to install.

Hitch looks good and is still working great.

It Was Perfect


Toyota Venza

Easy to install, fit my Venza perfectly. Price was right.

2012 Toyota Venza

Delivery was unexpectedly on time considering the blizzard conditions last week.


Looks great. Great service.


Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch

  • What is the Purpose of Using a Stabilizer Strap on a Curt Hitch with a Bike Rack
    Any time you use a bike rack or a hitch mounted carrier you will want to use a support strap like the Curt Stabilizer Strap # 18050, failure to do so could cause damage to the hitch and would void the warranty for the hitch also. The strap will provide extra support for the hitch and will help to reduce the amount of vertical shock that the bike rack would put on the hitch when going over bumps. Check out the video I attached that shows how the strap would attach from a typical bike rack...

  • How To Read a Metric Bolt Specification
    There really isn't any mechanical difference between those two bolts, one is just slightly longer than the other. When reading a metric bolt specification, the 3rd number indicates the length of the bolt, so I can't imagine the 4mm difference making a huge difference between the M10 x 1.25 x 36 and M10 x 1.25 x 40 bolts. With that said, the slightly longer bolt size might help and definitely won't hurt anything, so feel free to use either one. In most cases, when installing the Curt #...

  • Does The Curt Trailer Hitch 13356 For A Toyota Venza Stick Past The Bumper More Than The C12341?
    Both the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 13356 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class II # C12341 measure 3-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the most outward part of the rear bumper, so both will stick out exactly the same amount. Between these options I recommend the # 13356 as it does not require a stabilizing strap when using non-trailer loads, and it also has a 2" receiver which gives you a lot more options when it comes to accessories now...

  • What is the Least Noticeable Hitch on the 2009 Toyota Venza
    All of the hitches available at this time for your 2009 Toyota Venza are round tube style hitches and will be positioned just under the center of the rear fascia on your vehicle when properly installed. The most inconspicuous hitch would most likely be the Curt Class II Trailer Hitch with Drawbar, item # C12341. The opening on this hitch is smaller therefore less visible but will be positioned the same as the other hitches for your vehicle. With the Class 2 hitch you will not have as many...

  • Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87521 Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota Venza
    I would recommend you get a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75663. This hitch does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when a bike rack is installed so you would not have to worry about installing one with damaging your spoiler. I attached installation instructions for this hitch as well as an installation video for you to check out. In order to reduce the 2 inch opening of the # 75663 to a 1-1/4 inch opening you will also need a Hitch Reducer # HT02. I attached a review video for you...

  • Troubleshooting Hitch Bolts That Won't Thread Into Weld Nuts on 2012 Toyota Venza
    If you haven't already, I would recommend taking a nylon brush and some spray lubricant like the LubriMatic # L11363 and clean out the weld nut holes on your Curt # C12341 hitch. There could be some built up rust, dirt or other debris that is clogging up the holes and keeping you from getting them into the holes-these should thread by hand at the start. If you've already tried this step, please let me know and I can recommend some alternative steps.

  • Will the Kuat Beta Bike Rack Fit a Curt Class II Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Toyota Venza
    Yes, you can use the Kuat Alpha bike rack # B202-114 with the Curt trailer hitch # C12341 on your 2013 Toyota Venza. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. It is an excellent choice since the rack weighs so little, only about 13 pounds! Curt does require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for non-trailer loads when using the hitch with a bike rack to be in compliance with their warranty. I have linked a video showing how you might mount the strap.

  • Where to Install Support Strap When Using Curt Trailer Hitch on 2011 Toyota Venza with Yakima HoldUp
    To avoid contact with the spoiler on your 2011 Toyota Venza you can connect the Stabilizing Strap # 18050 to the safety chain loop on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12341 and then loop it around the Yakima HoldUp # Y02445 bike tray that is closest to your trunk. If you want to avoid using the strap altogether you can use the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36512 instead. This has the same basic design as the Curt option but it doesn't require the use of a stabilizing strap to keep...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Accessories for Towing 5 x 8 Foot ATV Trailer with 2015 Toyota Venza
    If all you'll ever use the hitch for is towing the trailer you described, the Curt Class II trailer hitch, part # C12341 would work great for you. This hitch uses the smaller 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. You also need the ball mount # C45521, pin and clip # F-4, and a 1-7/8 inch ball # A-80 or a 2 inch ball, part # A-82. However, if there's any chance at all you'd use the hitch as an attachment point for a bike rack or a cargo carrying tray like # C18151, you'd be better off going...
