Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13284

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (128 Customer Reviews)

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


I was very please with how easy this bolted on. The instructions would have been enough but there was a video online that showed how to install making it an easy project. An extra set of hands or two would help bolting on the hitch, but after that,one person is all you need. The hitch reciever feels well made and this item was delivered promptly and price was unbeatable. The company has great customer service. I highly recommend!

2020 Mazda CX-9

Great experience and resources. From the web site confirming correct trailer hitch, to "How To" videos, very smooth process. Delivery was really quick. Had my friend help out, he didn't see the videos and got the mounting plate "stuck" inside the channel, but I was able to rescue it and then get the hitch mounted correctly. Friend was really impressed with the manufacturing and how well it was designed. Also got the Wiring Harness (ignore the Toyota First Aid Kit in the Wiring Picture) and installed just in case I will need to use a trailer with lighting on it. Currently will use the hitch to transport bikes.
Well Done!

Buick Enclave

I purchased and installed primarily for a carryall for luggage. But recently purchased a utility trailer and it works great! Second hitch receiver I purchased for both of my vehicles. Buick Enclave and a 2020 Mazda CX-9.

2020 Mazda CX-9

Bolted right up, nice hardware included.

Worked well, no rust no flaws

2018 Mazda CX-9

Excellent product and easy to install! I decided not to wait for my wife to get home, but lifted the hitch on some 2x scrap I had. I didn't realize you supplied the pull wires, but they helped immensely!
The completed hitch doesn't stick out beyond the bumper! Nice!!!

Still happy! It just works. Thousands of trouble free miles pulling my Sooner.

etrailer is the place to shop because their products are top notch quality and they ship fast! Installation of Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III - 2" on my 2019 Mazda CX9 was super simple thanks to etrailer's step by step instructional videos.


I needed a hitch in a hurry and they did NOT disappoint, the customer service was excellent and the shipping super fast. Pricing very reasonable as well. Highly recommend!


I put it by myself on my 17 cx9. Great product, sturdy, tough and nice looking. Easy to install and after a year it is still properly attached and no issues. I use it only to hold bike racks and never on real hitching. Nevertheless, great product!


Calls for 2 man installation, I did it myself with a floor jack and jack stands. Raised the back a few inches, then lowered the exhaust onto a jack stand, maybe 4-6 inches. Then used another hydraulic jack to hold Hitch in place while I secured nuts. Probably easier than using a lift.


Works as expected. No issues. Installed on a 2019 Mazda CX-9. Towing a 17’ aluminum V Hull boat.


Quality hitch. Easy to install and the instructional videos were extremely helpful. It did arrive with the paint rubbed off on one corner due to shipping that I had to touch up the paint, which is why I'm not giving it full stars.


ETrailer was prompt to answer my question concerning the correct hitch. I purchased the recommended hitch and it arrived quickly and nicely packaged. Good company!


This trailer hitch fit great with our 2016 Mazda CX-9.

2021 Mazda CX-9

Took Auto F/X approximately 1 hour to install the hitch. Looks great on our 2021 Mazda CX-9.


Great instructions and installation video, was able to install it fairly easily.

2017 Mazda CX-9

Installation was a breeze, I took my time and still was done in less than an hour! With the wire supplied for fishing the bolts through it was so easy my kids could have installed it!!

2019 Mazda CX-9

Highly recommend this site! The whole purchase, shipping and installation process was simple, fast and efficient. Easy to identify the correct hitch for my vehicle, competitive pricing, great communication from order submission to shipment to receipt of the part plus awesome installation video made this a simple DIY project. Thank you!


Perfect fit, took 20 minutes in my garage to install. Very easy.


Great service and fast shipping


Had it for a year now. Easy to install and met all my expectations. Highly recommend.


Tracking was great. New exactly where it was in the process and shipped out the same day I ordered. Received quickly. Was able to install myself without too much trouble.


Solid construction and easy to install. You can’t beat it. Plus a year later it still looks new.


Delivery time was great (3-4 days). Put the hitch on my Mazda CX9. Installation was a 2-3 hour job with an experienced mechanic (Master). Directions provided were a big help. Hitch is well built and comes with a durable paint on it. I will be using it for a enclosed 5X8 trailer and a bicycle rack. I would recommend this product to everyone!

2018 Mazda CX-9

Well, the box was beaten to smithereens but the contents were fine. The holes in the box were of sufficient size for the mounting hardware to have fallen out - but whomever packed it secured them to the hitch! Hooray - no delay waiting for more parts. Having used Curt hitches in the past, I knew about the quality, and this one is no different. The tiebreaker for etrailer is the plethora of information regarding specific vehicles on the web site. I can't say I wouldn't do this again, because I DID do this again!! Not my first order by a long shot, and based on my own history - probably not my last. I have always found their accessories, and component parts to be first rate, and keeps me coming back for more!


Easy to install!

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Mazda CX-9
    It looks like the second generation for the Mazda CX-9 began in 2016 and continues through the current model. The changes to the rear frame and bumper on the new generation were enough to require a new trailer hitch for it to fit properly. As you suspected, you will need to obtain a new hitch for your 2018 Mazda CX-9 and I recommend the Curt Hitch Receiver # C13284. This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation....

  • Will the Curt Hitch for a 2020 Mazda CX-9 Work with the Hands Free Lift-Gate Feature
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13284 which is a fit for a 2020 Mazda CX-9 will work on models with the hands free lift gate feature. That said, you will need to place your foot on either side of the receiver tube in order to activate it but that's it. The Curt hitch is an excellent option which offers bolt-on installation and a hidden design.

  • Is There a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2022 Mazda CX-9
    There is indeed a trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver that fits your 2022 Mazda CX-9. It is from Curt, and I verified with them that the hitch is a fit for your '22; the correct part is the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13284 The # C13284 is a complete bolt-on installation so you don't have to do any drilling to the frame of your 2022 CX-9, and also has a concealed crosstube so only the receiver is showing, allowing your Mazda to keep a more streamlined appearance.

  • Can Hands Free Lift Gate On 2021 Mazda CX-9 Be Used With Curt Trailer Hitch C13284 Installed?
    You will still be able to use the hands free lift gate feature on your 2021 Mazda CX-9 with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13284 installed, but you will need to put your foot on either side of the receiver and move it in and out until you find the sweet spot of the sensor. After doing this a few times it will become second nature on where to place your foot. I included a video of the # C13284 being installed for you to take a look at.

  • Re-Securing Sensor On Factory Hitch for 2017 Mazda CX-9 with Curt Class III
    I can't be certain as to what the sensor is but I have heard before that there are studs on the body you can re-attach it to which is used on models without the factory hitch. You can then proceed with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13284.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch from 2009 Mazda CX-9 Fit 2019 Mazda CX-9
    Your brand new 2019 Mazda CX-9 will require a new trailer hitch. The Curt Class III Hitch # 13575 you currently have installed on your 2009 CX-9 is only compatible with this vehicle up through the 2015 model year. Based on my research it looks like the CX-9 went through a generational change for the 2016 model year and there were enough differences to the rear of the vehicle that a new hitch fitment was needed. For your 2019 Mazda CX-9 the Curt Class III # C13284 will work perfectly....

  • How to Know Correct Torque Values for Hitch Installation Hardware for Curt Class III Hitch C13284
    Trailer hitches we sell always include the appropriate hardware kit and instructions that specify the torque values for the fasteners. Sometimes a hitch may use more than one bolt size and these might in some instances use different torque values. But again the hitch installation instructions will detail this as well as the specific tools required to install it. Curt 2-inch Class III hitch # C13284 install instructions are linked for you.

  • Installed Position of Draw-Tite & Curt 2-Inch Hitches on 2016 Mazda CX-9
    We have not yet had a local customer bring in a 2016 Mazda CX-9 for a hitch install but I can give you some help in determining the installed position for a hitch. I went to our warehouse and measured Draw-Tite hitch # 76020 and Curt hitch # C13284 so you can use those dimensions to give you a close approximation of where the hitch tube will be relative to your bumper and to the ground when installed. Since both install on the bottom surface of the car's frame what I did was measure from...

  • Which Hitch for 2021 Mazda CX-9 Has Best Clearance for Bike Rack
    The Curt hitch part # C13284 has the best clearance for a bike rack to fit past the rear bumper. It has 5 inches from it's pin hole out to the furthest edge of the rear bumper whereas the Draw Tite # 76020 has 7 inches.

  • Mounting Plate For Attaching 7-Way & 4-Way Trailer Connectors To 2" Receiver With Hidden Cross Tube
    I recommend using the Curt Easy Mount Bracket for 4- or 5-Way Flat and 6- or 7-Way Trailer Connectors # C58000 for attaching a 7-way plug onto your 2021 Mazda CX-9. The bracket will mount to the face of the receiver on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13284. This is the cleanest way to attach the 7-way where it easily accessable and will not require you to drill a mount into your bodywork since your receiver tube is hidden up behind the bumper.

  • Best Hitch for Bike Rack On 2019 Mazda CX-9
    The best trailer hitch we offer for a 2019 Mazda CX-9 to use with a bike rack is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13284 because the receiver tube is closer to the edge of the bumper than other options which allows for more clearance with a bike rack. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper is 5". In regards to a 1Up Bike Rack, this is not a brand we carry so I would not be able to confirm fit. However, so long as the distance from the center...

  • Which Curt Hitch Fits 2020 Mazda CX-9
    Yes, the Curt hitch part # C13284 that you referenced is confirmed as a fit for your 2020 Mazda CX-9. For trailer wiring the Tekonsha part # 118278 is a confirmed fit and easy to install as well! I attached install videos for both of these for you to check out too. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • What is Weight Distribution Capacity for Hitch that Fits 2020 Mazda CX-9
    Trailer hitches sometimes have higher towing capacities when you use a weight distribution system with them like the Curt Hitch part # C13284. What a weight distribution system does is use spring bar leverage to distribute some of the trailer's tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle which ends up reducing rear suspension sag, improves handling, and braking. I attached a help article on weight distribution systems for you to check out as well. The Strait Line system part...

    We have received reviews for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13284 confirming that the hands-free liftgate will operate with the receiver installed on a 2021 Mazda CX-9. You should not have any issues using yours on your CX-9 but as a general guide line I do recommend testing it after the receiver is installed as generally one side may work better at sensing the foot movement.

  • Tongue Weight Limit of 2019 Mazda CX-9 With Curt Trailer Hitch C13284
    You are always limited to the lowest-rated component, whether that is your vehicle - in your case a 2019 Mazda CX-9 - or the equipment. So I took a look at the owner's manual of your '19 CX-9 and it says the max towing is 3,500 lbs like you mentioned, but didn't specify a max tongue weight, just that it needs to be 10% - 15% of the trailer weight. So your tongue weight can be more than 350 lbs on your '19 CX-9, and up to 525 lbs with the Curt hitch that fits: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Is It Better To Use 1-1/4" or 2" Hitch on 2020 Mazda CX-9 for 5 Bike Rack
    In regards to stability, using a 1-1/4" shank with a 1-1/4" hitch will be more sturdy than using a 1-1/4" shank with 2" adapter with a 2" hitch. However, the 2" hitch will have a greater weight capacity than a 1-1/4" hitch which may be needed for five bikes so the latter is what I recommend. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13284 with the Thule Apex XT 5 Bike Rack part # TH9026XT is what I recommend. The SnugTite stinger on the Thule Apex will do a great job of reducing sway/rattle...

  • Stable Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Mazda CX-9 for Carrying Bikes with Fenders
    If you plan to carry bikes with fenders you'll need a bike rack that only grabs the bikes by the frame as the wheel mount style will not work with the fenders. The Thule DoubleTrack Pro XT bike rack part # TH92BJ is a very stable rack option that will fit the Curt hitch part # C13284 that you referenced for your 2016 Mazda CX-9.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

When we installed this on a 2020 CX-9 we found the receiver height to be 13-1/2" from the ground.
