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

2016 Nissan Pathfinder

Very nice hitch. Powercoat is nice and thick so corrosion won't be an issue. I tried to order one that would fit in the factory opening in the bumper ,but as you can see it fits below with some minor trimming.



Working great, no issues


Easy install instructions.

Nissan Pathfinder

The service from etrailer was very good and professional and the video's very helpful to use, I installed it with a in about 30 minutes. the quality of the hitch is good and constructed well, we have used it 4 times since purchasing it. It especially helpful to use during the holidays to make room for all of our packing. we have a Nissan Pathfinder. the only thing I would recommend is buying a 2 inch trailer hitch rise, because when the cargo basket is fully loaded it can scrape the drown goin up or down sloped driveways.

Nissan Pathfinder

Solid. I tow a 20 Foot Pontoon. with a Pathfinder. 6 or 7 times a summer. I have to use an 8" Rise receiver to get the trailer leveled off. If I had the hitch at the factory height i could probably use a 4" riser. Other than that, I can't complain. The kit came with all the electronic parts needed to " Go Live" and tow.

Volvo Cross Country

Worked great for towing a cargo rack on my cross country trip!


Great product and easy to install. Etrailer was helpful in making sure I purchased the right hitch.

Thomas F.


Hitch is working great.


This is the second hitch I’ve ordered from etrailer and have been very happy both times. The first one arrived the day after the early received date but it was due to a snow storm and the second arrived a day before the received window. Both were the free shipping option so still very fast. The videos are super helpful for install.


Product came fast and seems solid all around(haven't tested it yet), definitely a two person install job. Everything fit okay, when it was in position, doesn't clear bumper(have to push it out and remove brackets). Also, the videos showed a spot to mount the electrical, this one is missing that feature, I had to get crafty and use U bolts and L brackets to make my own mount for the electrical stuff.

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

This class 3 hitch came on time, good price. It's going on a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, not exactly a tow-truck but primarily to be used to mount a bike rack. The hitch is extremely sturdy and well built with good powder coat paint. I'd buy it from you again.


Great hitch. Fit perfectly and was really well built. A big Thank you to etrailer for their help in making my order right. Package was damaged in shipping, and they went out of their way to make it correct. Thanks again.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Hitch appears to be good quality and will do the job. It was not too difficult to install but a second pair of hands would have been nice. Happy with this hitch and the service from etrailer.

2019 Nissan Pathfinder

I ordered the hitch and it was delivered quicker than I anticipated. It came in a box that had a few holes in it. Turns out the hardware and instructions were missing from the box.

I called customer service and they were very friendly and helpful. They sent replacement hardware and instructions and I received the replacements the day after I called them at no extra charge.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

excellent service on the phone with timothy. hitch and wiring fit perfectly. very pleased with the video about installation. helpful. thank you

2019 Nissan Pathfinder

Have not attached this to the car yet. My wife mistakenly thought the wiring package was included. Item was shipped as quickly as promised and just arrived this afternoon.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Very easy to install. Super clear instructions.
Can be installed without any ramp, just slide down on a mat.
Installation required to cut a small piece of plastic from fascia, I did it using occilating multitool.
Need to have ratchet with 6/10 inch extension


Great Hitch, easy to install. Tow a very tongue heavy trailer- handles beautifully.


I installed this hitch myself, it took about 1 1/2 hours. The electrical harness and relays were easily installed with little electrical or mechanical knowledge. The video made it simple. I have used my hitch many times and I have had no issues with the mounting or the electrical. I’m glad I purchased it!

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

The hitch was a perfect fit for my 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. I plan to be pulling a camper real soon. This looks factory installed. Great product.


Great hitch, it took me 1.5 hrs to install, and as always etrailer gives awesome customer service!!!

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Installed on a 2018 Pathfinder. Perfect fit, nice "factory" look. Very beefy, well-made two bar. I did not have help but by hooking the passenger side over the muffler it held it enough to get a driver's side bolt started.


The trailer is good! I’ve been hauling 6ft trailer several times. It works perfect.

2015 Nissan Pathfinder

Great fit, easy installation and fast shipping.
does care about their product and I love video manuals they create.


This hitch installed exactly as the instructions said. Couldn't be happier!

2020 Nissan Pathfinder

The hitch is great it was a little difficult installing it but after installing it was great.


Exhaust does get in the way. But I'm stubborn and didn't watch any videos. A better 2 person job

  • Installing a Hitch on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL with Motion Liftgate Sensor
    The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13309, is confirmed to fit your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. My contact at Curt confirmed with me that the hitch will not interfere with the relay that is located at under the bumper. The hands free lift gate feature will still be enabled after installation of the Curt hitch. However if you're trying to activate it with your foot directly under the hitch receiver opening it probably won't work. Just keep your foot to the side of the receiver tube and it...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Nissan Pathfinder
    For your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder we have the Curt hitch part # C13309 as a confirmed fit that would work really well. It has a hidden crosstube so it's mostly out of plainsight, installs easily, and has great towing capacities. I attached a picture of what the hitch looks like installed as well as an install video too.

  • Comparison of Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers for a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    I prefer the Curt, part # C13309, over the Draw-Tite, part # 76031, for a trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. I like how the Curt hitch is mostly hidden behind the rear bumper and the only part you see is the receiver opening and safety chain loops. With the Draw-Tite you can see part of the crosstube under the bumper. Although, it doesn't require any fascia trimming and the price is better. I've linked a video from when we installed the Draw-Tite on a Pathfinder...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for Max Towing Capacity on 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and it states that the vehicle has a maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. I do recommend verifying this in your copy of the manual as well. For a trailer hitch that will work perfectly I recommend the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 which has a 6,000 pound capacity to match the Pathfinder's limits and a nice hidden crosstube design where only the 2 inch receiver will be visible....

  • Can the Curt # C13309 Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Liftgate Sensors
    Yes, you can install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder even though it has the kick liftgate sensors. The only potential difference is that you may just have to kick to the left or right of the receiver instead of just waving your foot beneath the bumper. There is some minor fascia trimming that needs to take place and the driver side tow hook will need to be removed to install the trailer hitch, but Curt has only rated the install a 5 out of 10 for...

  • Availability of Concealed Trailer Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfindeer
    The hitches we offer would all install so that the receiver tube sits directly under the rear bumper, such as the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13309. In order to get a hitch like what you described, you'd need to get the OEM hitch from Toyota, as well as the specific bumper cover with the knockout for the receiver to pass through. If the hitch can be installed aftermarket, it will be very expensive. I certainly understand why you'd want a hitch to install through the bumper fascia, trailer...

  • Does Draw-Tite or Curt Hitch Have Better Ground Clearance for 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    When we installed the Draw-Tite # 76031 and Curt # C13309 trailer hitch receivers on a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder - which is the same body as a 2019 Pathfinder - we found that the Draw-Tite had both better ground clearance and better bumper clearance. The Curt measured 14 inches from the ground to the top of the hitch with 5 inches from the hitch pin hole to the end of the bumper, while the Draw-Tite measured 14-1/2 inches from the ground and 4 inches from pin hole to the end of the bumper.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder That Has Discrete Appearance

The included photo shows you the Curt hitch installed. The other hitch, class IV Draw-Tite # 76031, offers slightly easier installation but it will be more visible once installed. For a clean and discrete appearance the USA-made Curt hitch wins. The written instructions and...

  • Trailer Wiring Kit and Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    For a 4-way trailer wiring harness for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder I recommend the # 118670 which installs very easily and comes with everything needed to give you the 4-way you'll need to tow your pop up. I attached an install video for this on a similar 2018 Pathfinder. If you needed a hitch too the Curt Class III part # C13309 is a really great option too. It has plenty of capacity and is mostly hidden since only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receivers for a 2020 Nissan Parthfinder
    The main difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13309 and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76031 for a 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is appearance. The Curt hitch has a hidden design so the crosstube is hidden behind the bumper and the Draw-Tite hitch has a visible crosstube so it will be shown below the bumper. The hidden design offers better ground clearance and looks better overall so this is what I recommend. I have attached an install video I did below as well.

  • Should Trailer Wiring Be Installed with Trailer Hitch or Can it Wait til Later
    Trailer hitch installs and trailer wiring installs are totally separate processes. It wouldn't be a situation where "well, you're already half way there may as well do the wiring too." So if you wanted to start with a hitch now like the # C13309 and then do the wiring part # C56281 now or at a later date you'd have the same amount of work either way. I attached install videos for both of these for you to check out as well.

  • Can Trailer Hitch Installed on 2016 Nissan Pathfinder Be Moved to 2019 Model?
    The answer to your question will depend on which hitch you have installed on the 2016 Pathfinder. If it's a Draw-Tite # 76031, it can be removed and installed on your 2019 Pathfinder. If you have the Curt # C13126, it will NOT fit on your 2019 Pathfinder. The correct Curt hitch fit for your 2019 would be part # C13309.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    Hands down the best trailer hitch for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76031 over the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13309 because it has the better clearances as well as the easier installation. The Draw-Tite hitch has better ground clearance than the Curt, has better bumper clearance, and does not require either lowering the spare tire to install or trimming the fascia under the bumper, which are both steps necessary to install the Curt hitch.

  • Comparison of 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Trailer Hitches
    For your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, the hitch manufacturers have all specified the same weight capacities. Curt # C13309, Draw-Tite # 76031, and etrailer # e98908 all have 900 lb tongue weight and 6,000 lbs towing capacity. I recommend the least expensive options at the time of purchase because they all are great quality hitches with the biggest difference between them being the etrailer hitch has a flat/matte black finish versus the high gloss black of the other two.

  • Mounting Bracket for a 4-way Wiring Harness on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    To mount a 4-way wiring harness like the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118670 to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder you can use the Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144 and the No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket # 18140. The No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket # 18140 will attach to the hitch and the Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144 will attach to the electrical mounting bracket.

  • Bracket for Mounting 7-Way Install on 2019 Nissan Pathfinder with Curt Hitch
    Since the Curt hitch part # C13309 that fits your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder doesn't have a trailer wiring bracket (none of the hitches for your vehicle do) the best options is to use a bracket # PK12711U attached to the lower rear fascia so that you can easily mount the 7-way kit that also fits your vehicle part # C56357. I attached a picture that shows what the wiring connectors look like at the rear of your vehicle as well.

This Class III, 2" trailer hitch is almost entirely hidden behind your bumper, has a black powder coat finish to protect it from corrosion and also has a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity.

    With the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 installed on your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder, which as you mentioned features a hidden crosstube that stays tucked behind the rear bumper, you will just need to mount the 7-Way bracket directly to the bumper fascia using something like the Pollak # PK12711U. If you'd rather not bolt anything directly into the fascia, another good option is with the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000. This will attach directly to the hitch receiver on the Curt Trailer...

    Before a hitch is shipped we do check for paint being chipped off and one is never sent with chipped paint so rest assured the hitch you get will leave our warehouse in perfect condition.

  • How To Mount A 7-Way Connector On A 2019 Nissan Pathfinder With The Curt Hitch C13309

I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package # 118273 as a simple, plug and play solution that does not require splicing of wires to install. The 2 connectors are found usually in the far rear drivers side compartment. The Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware # PK12711U will then help in providing a clean look for your 7-Way connector....
