2009 Toyota Camry

My Iowa 2009 Camry has been in a garage it's whole life, so, that helped a lot.
Used [online] etrailer video for ease of work. I took longer than they did as I had to work a bit to de-rust a couple of female bolt threads enough to get a bolt on easily.



Ive had no issues with the hitch. Works perfectly! Id by it again, if I needed it.


Actual shipping, hitch arrival was days more than what was estimated/advertised. The box had substantial damage to the extent that the hitch was sticking out of one end of the box.

Oh no! I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you!

2009 Lexus ES 350

Muffler hangers were the literal hang-up on this install. WD-40 and a pair of wide mouth pliers did the trick. Put one end of the pliers on the flared pin and the other on the back of the rubber. When you squeeze the pliers it will pull the pin through due to the lubrication.

Hot tip: Start the thread one by one on the bolts without tightening up too much. This will allow you to still wiggle the hitch for aligning the remaining bolts. This is a really solid product!


Your service is great. The order arrived today, just a couple days after I ordered. I’m getting it installed this week and looking forward to using it with my utility trailer.

2007 Toyota Camry

Purchased for my 2007 Camry LE
good product with good hardware. Only issue I really had was directions saying a 45 minute install? Took me 3-4hours since I live in Wisconsin, things were rusty.



In the past year of havithis hitch, Ive used it several times and each time Im glad I made this purchase. Well worth it if youre looking for an easy way to add towing capabilities to your car.


The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver was delivered on time and arrived in very good condition.
I had watched the on line installation video to get an idea of the steps needed. This confirmed that I could install it with the pre existing weld nuts and support provided by Toyota. The actual instructions provided with the hitch were sufficient without the video.
I would recommend this hitch for this vehicle. Very simple and easy even while laying underneath the back bumper. No lift required.

2011 Toyota Camry

Good clear directions from Curt, and a GREAT video from Only issue in install was the weld nut in the sheet metal support of the muffler hanger was rusted on for me. Had to use a dremel to grind it off, but that is typical here in Wisconsin with road salt, and a seven year old car. Hitch and hardware was great.

The one other annoyance was that the UPC needed for the Curt rebate was stuck to the hitch from Curt so I had to take it off with care for my rebate. Well worth the rebate.

2007 Toyota Camry

TWO MAN JOB! Hitch went on just as described, but definitely NOT a one man job. Prior to purchase I was having a hard time finding info anywhere online about installation on '07 Camry with DUAL EXHAUST. Bought hitch anyway, and can verify that it DOES WORK with dual exhaust setup. Exhaust system was well enough supported that we did not need to use additional support after removing bolts. Be sure hitch brackets are sandwiched BETWEEN frame and exhaust brackets when installing. Excellent design of hitch ensures there is minimum clearance between bottom of bumper and top of hitch, so you get maximum road clearance. Have not pulled anything with it yet, but design looks really SOLID with four bolts in each the two brackets.

2010 Lexus ES 350

Love the 1 1/4 receiver hitch on my 2010 Lexus ES350. Don't see many Lexus' with trailer hitch but I absolutely love it for hauling my bikes off the back with my Kuat carrier. Ground clearance is excellent as are aesthetics!

Toyota Camry

The hitch was so easy to install! Took my husband forty minutes. He loves its beefy feel - should outlast our Camry, itself. Now we can make quick trips to the dump and haul wood from the woodshed up to the porch...

Katherine H.


No issues at all! Still works without a hitch!

Katherine H.


I submitted a comment but would like to add that we use it all the time. Weve hauled gravel and lumber. Still works perfectly!

Toyota Camry

I'm not an auto mechanic; I'm just a simple school teacher, but mounting the hitch receiver was not terribly difficult. I watched the online video, jacked my Camry off the ground, unscrewed all the existing bolts, and put the hitch receiver on without much trouble. An hour and a half later and I was done. Truly a perfect fit. It looks like a professional instal, and I feel accomplished.

2012 Lexus ES 350

It didn't fit the Lexus. The installer had to elong the holes on one side to complete the installation.

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which is why the bolt holes are not lining up. This can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a great FAQ that provides ways to move the brackets back into alignment so the hitch can be installed.


Solid hitch. I’ve been lugging my bikes around for the last year with no issues at all. Highly recommended. Etrailer also has great service and prices. Lifetime customer.


odering process and help from you and others was excellent, top notch.
My hitch will be installed on feb.9. Once completed i will get back to
and give you my opinion on teh product.


Shipping was very fast. Product was easy to install and mounted up to strong part of the car's body where the factory had placed weld nuts. The hitch is attractive beneath the bumper and I gave it a coat of wax!


This hidden hitch fits very well. Instruction were clear and accurate. Installation was time consuming yet problem free. eTrailer order/shipping process was quick and event free. This is my second hitch from them and I’ll be back for my next one when that time arrives. Highly recommended!

2007 Toyota Camry

Great product, took a little longer for me to install because of a factory misaligned bolt hole, but would fit perfectly for others.
Pulling a utility trailer just fine with my Camry.


Fantastic service! Shipped fast (even faster than advertised). The online tutorials were very helpful! I had my tow hitch up and running in no time, thank you for a great experience!

2007 Toyota Camry

etrailer provides a good service. the product and wiring sellection was done right . Customer service ordering shipping, tracing was excellent.
I had the trailer hitch installed on our 2007 Camry by my auto mechanic.
His comment was the wiring was a little more "complicated" than other installations
the total installation time was 2 1/2 hours



the trailer hitch is still very reliable. My only suggestion would be to add the plastic plug as part of the hitch package.

2011 Toyota Camry

The product is perfect. Installation was a breeze, after watching the video's. Installation time was estimated at 45 Min. I had it installed in 30. The packaging is not very good. When the receiver was left on my doorstep, it had burst through the end of the box causing some minor scratching. (It is going to spend the rest of its life under my car, so I doubt a few scratches are worth a reduced rating). I have towed a 5x8 utility trailer with it several times, and it has performed perfectly. No drilling necessary, the only specialty tool required is a torque wrench.

Ray G.


After a year and heavy use, the hitch is holding up well. I still recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a receiver hitch for light duty use on their car.


Great hitch, receiver, works really well, nice and stable.

2011 Toyota Camry

Second trailer hitch purchase I've mad through e-trailer and definitely won't be my last. Product arrived on estimated date. The hitch had ripped through the box, although I'm sure this was caused by the shipment company. Doesn't matter really, it's a trailer hitch, it hangs off the back of your car so it won't stay perfect for long. Hitch took about 10 minutes to install (however I am a trained auto tech with access to a lift and full set of tools, so installation won't be as easy for a do-it-yourselfer). I use it to hold a hitch-mounted bike rack. No intentions of ever using it to tow an actual trailer, but it works great for what I use it for.

Toyota Camry

I am thrilled with the trailer ball & hitch I purchased from you one year ago for my Toyota Camry. I have used the hitch numerous times to rent U-Haul trailers rather than trucks (which you have a mileage fee on) and saved more than triple the cost of my purchase.

As the mom to a college aged daughter, I was the one to help her & her friends move out of the dorms, into their first shared apartment & delivered the gently used furniture we found online to furnish their first digs.

Most recently I helped them move to a furnished shared flat and was able to haul their furniture to both a consignment store & a donation center so that their finds can live on and make other families happy.

The products I purchased from still looks and perform like new. Thank you, Erica, for your professional advice and support. I highly recommend to everyone I meet!

A grateful Mom


4 out of 5 stars because it is a hair off to the left. Although it won't make a difference for my bikerack application, that's not the point. I didn't notice at first, but then loosened it and discovered there is no lateral movement. I then noticed a picture of another customers review and it is the same as mine. About 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch may not seem like a lot, but being a jeweler, if I was to set the customers center stone a hair off on her wedding ring, she would have my head on a platter! It is either on or off and in this case it's off. Aside from that it is a quality hitch and it was super easy to install.

2007 Lexus ES 350

2007 lexus es350 tows my boat great. Rides and tracks smooth at 65mph. Boat is 14ft. handles the same with or without boat. I used the Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 9-5/8" Long - 3,500 lbs and it sits very level.

5 stars for sure

  • Recommendation for Hitch on 2009 Toyota Camry LE To Carry a Hoveround Power Chair With Hoverlift
    To use the Hoverlift on your 2009 Toyota Camry LE to haul the Hoveround Power Chair it does require to use a Class II or Class III hitch. All of the hitches that are available for your 2009 Toyota Camry LE are a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch. The Draw-Tite # 36416 and Hidden Hitch # 90152 (no longer available) have a tongue weight capacity of 300 lbs.

  • Can a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Mount Accessory be Used on a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on a 2011 Toyota Camry
    It is possible to use your 2 inch accessories in a class II, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch. You would have to use a hitch expander, 1-1/4 to 2 inch. However, the use of an expander will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. It appears that the vast majority of trailer hitches for a 2011 Toyota Camry have a tongue weight capacity of 300 pounds. When using an expander, like # 80303, that capacity will be cut down to 150 pounds. This means that the weight of any...

  • Is A 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Available For A 2009 Toyota Camry
    On the 2009 Toyota Camry, all of the hitches available are Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch openings. The hitches will have a 3,500 lb. Gross Towing Weight and a 300 lb. or 350 lb. Tongue Weight. There is not a 2 inch hitch available for your vehicle, because a 2 inch hitch has to be rated as a Class III and a Class IV hitch. That means that the vehicle would have to be able to tow weights ranging from 3,500 lbs. to 12,000 lbs. The frame on your Toyota Camry would not be able to handle towing...

  • Recommend a Trailer Hitch To Carry Bike Rack on My 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid
    The CURT Trailer Hitch, # 12343, will fit a 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The CURT Hitch # 12343 is a Class II 1-1/4 inch receiver and includes a drawbar, pin and clip. The strap in question is the CURT Bike Rack Strap with Cambuckle, # 18050. CURT warranty requires, all non-trailer loads including such things as bike racks and cargo carriers, use a support strap. To maintain the warranty on the hitch, the strap will need to be used. Since you will only be using the hitch for a bike rack,...

    Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies. The hitches use essentially the same design, the Hidden Hitch, part # 90152 (no longer available), does include a drawbar and pin and clip if you will be doing any towing. However, these two hitches have a tongue weight capacity of 300 pounds, not 350 like the Curt and Valley. If you will not be doing any towing, or your bike rack or cargo carrier load is under 300 pounds, I would not worry about it. The Curt hitch, part # 12343, also includes...

  • Can I Use a Hitch Adapter With My Hitch on a 2010 Toyota Camery to Carry a Small Motorcyle Carrier
    The Brophy Hitch Adapter # HTAD is designed to adapt the 1-1/4 inch hitch opening to a 2 inch hitch opening. However, for your application, I would not recommend using any hitch adapter. The problem with using hitch adapters is it will lower the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The tongue weight capacity of the Curt hitch, # C12343, is 350 lbs. Using the hitch adapter will drop that down to 175 lbs. The max tongue weight will include the weight of the motorcycle carrier,...

  • Is Trimming of Fascia Needed to Install Trailer Hitch in 2007 Lexus ES350?
    I took a look at the installation instructions for both the Curt # C12343 hitch and the Draw-Tite # 36416 hitch to see if any fascia would need to be trimmed, and the Curt mentions that it may require fascia trimming. However, the Draw-Tite # 36416 will not, as you can see in the installation video I've linked showing the Draw-Tite being installed on a 2008 ES 350, which will be the same as on your '07 model.

I recommend checking your owner's manual to confirm this information. The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2009 Lexus ES 350 is the Curt Class II Receiver Hitch # C12343.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid
    Curt trailer hitch # C12343 is indeed listed as a fit for your 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It also fits non-Hybrids which is probably why it looks different than the video. 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 car go carrier) per their warranty requirements. If you want to avoid having to use a stabilization strap then go with Draw-Tite hitch # 36416. It does not have that requirement.

I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he says once the hitch is installed, the end plate and vehicle frame do not lose support. He said the trailer hitch ties into both end plates and the trunk pan so the support bracket is not needed. If you would like a trailer hitch that will mount to the end plate and the vehicle...

    I attached an FAQ article to the right on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount for a towing setup so that a trailer can be towed level. But based on the two dimensions you gave me you will need a ball mount with a 4 inch rise. For that you would want the part # 3594. As long as your trailer coupler takes a 2 inch ball the # 19258 would work well with the # 3594 so that your trailer can be towed level.
