Great hitch fit perfect.

2005 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis

This is a great class IV hitch. I installed it on an 2005 F-350 Cab&Chassis. I had this great ICC bumper made out of 1/4 steel I think that I was considering just welding a receiver to, but then I didn't want to be responsible to losing a trailer that was hitched to something that had to actual rating so I opted for this hitch instead. Two slight problems were encountered with the install. First, the hitch and bumper wanted to occupy the same space, and second I have a 40gal aft gas tank that prevented drilling into the frame. The first problem was solved when I decided to just cut off the bumper cross member and reattach the sides, and the second problem was solved by lowering the gas tank on some jackstands about 8" so I could drill and screw. I needed about 1/4" shim on the bumper sides to account for the width of the hitch side bracket so that the bumper sides were on a flush surface. When I realized that Tasco mounted the whole aluminum bed on 1/2" wood, I decided to use up some pieces of wooden crates instead of using washers. Drilling into the frame is pretty easy once you watch a couple of [online] videos on proper technique (hint: more pressure and less speed). One person can install this easily, especially with the help of a jack. The main harness for the truck runs down the left frame, so be careful not to drill into it. Etrailer email support, prices and fast delivery were superb. Thank Guys.


This hitch is very well built and fit perfectly right out of the box. I towed a 22 ft 7000 lb enclosed trailer over 7000 miles with it last summer with no issues. I have recommended this hitch to two of my friends. Only thing I had to do was add a plate to hold the 7-pin connector.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Ford E-450 Shuttle Bus
    I do have a possible solution for you but there are no custom fit hitches designed for converter Ford E-series vans. What you could use is a weld-on hitch. I have included a link to the weld-on hitch options we offer. The issue is that the bodies used on the conversions are larger than the standard vans so a custom fit hitch for a regular van model would likely not fit. And there are so many conversion possibilities that hitch manufacturers cannot test them all. The weld-on hitches are...

    Please refer to the included images I made showing measurements for Curt trailer hitch # C14048. This hitch is designed to fit 1999 to 2016 Ford cab and chassis model trucks. Those are the trucks sold without a bed and are then turned into service vehicles, flat beds, and utility trucks.

  • Class IV or V Trailer Hitch for a 1988 Ford F-450 Cab and Chassis
    What you will need to do is install a weld-on heavy duty truck trailer hitch like in the link I have provided. All of these hitches are going to be Class IV or V hitches like you are looking for. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder with experience in this sort of installation. A custom fit hitch is not available for the 1988 Ford F-450 cab and chassis models.

  • Is Drilling Required to Install Curt Hitch # C14048
    I checked the install instructions for the Curt Hitch part # C14048 that you referenced for your 1999 Ford F-350 cab and chassis and you do have to drill the rearmost holes to install the hitch.

  • Installing Curt Hitch on 2005 Ford F-350 Cab and Chassis
    Thank you for the excellent photos, and for starters, you are correct that it will help ease installation if you lower the gas tank on your 2005 Ford F-350 Cab and Chassis when installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14048. In regards to drilling, yes, you can drill through the off-center rivet head to install the hitch. This hitch is a fit for quite a few different trucks which is why it doesn't specify this in the directions.

  • What Size Trucks Frames Does Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14048 Fit
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14048 is designed to fit cab and chassis model trucks which all have a frame width of 34 inch to 34 inch measured on the outsides of the truck frame. This is narrower than standard frame trucks so if you have a truck that was originally a cab and chassis (came with no truck bed) this will fit and work well. If you have a different truck let me know. Here's a list of all of the trucks this hitch fits: 2015 - 2019 Ford F-350 Cab and Chassis 2001 - 2014...

  • Do I Need A Class IV Receiver Hitch For My 2014 Forest River Forester With Ford E450 Chassis
    No you do not, provided you never flat tow a vehicle that is heavier than your motorhome's maximum gross trailer weight. Your Ford E450 chassis has the same weight limit has your hitch receiver, so it does not make a difference if you get a hitch receiver with a greater weight limit. The chassis will still limit how much weight you can flat tow.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Jayco Motor Home Built on a Ford E-450 Chassis
    The only hitch that is going to work for a 2009 Ford E-450 RV cutaway model is a multi-fit motor home hitch like # 13703. Measure the outside to outside frame distance. If it is 22 to 72 inches wide you can use this hitch. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The Curt trailer hitch you have referenced will not fit because it is custom designed to fit on various trucks but not Ford vans. The vehicles this hitch fits have narrower frames than the van chassis.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Winnebago Fuse on a 2016 Ford Transit T350 Chassis
    The available trailer hitches for the 2016 Ford Transit T350 are not designed to fit the cab and chassis/cut away models but we do have options that you could use. The most popular option is # 13703. It can actually be bolted on or welded on. Welding should be done by a professional welder. It will fit frame widths (outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other) from 22 inches to 72 inches. And it fits box frames, I-beam frames, and C-channel frames. It is rated for 3,500 pounds...

  • Will Curt Class IV Hitch # C14048 Fit Sea Breeze Motor Home Built on Ford F-53 Chassis
    The Curt Class IV Hitch # C14048 that you referenced is a fit for various Ford F-350, F-450 and F-550 cab and chassis-based vehicles. It is not a fit for your Sea Breeze that is built on a 2004 F-53 platform. Currently we do not show any custom hitch fits for a 2004 F-53. We do offer universal-fit hitches that can be installed on a wide range of vehicles. These can be seen on the link provided.

  • Trailer Hitch Side Brackets and Mounting Hole Dimensions for 2009 Ford F-Series Cab and Chassis
    The Curt # C14048 measures 16-1/16 inches from the back to the center of the 3 front holes. Those front holes are all 1-1/2 inches on center so you technically could use the 14.565 inch measurement. There is not one that is closer to 15 inches in mounting hole dimensions. The Curt # C15410 measures 13-1/2 inches from front to back on center if you need a smaller distance which makes the overall distance of the mount right around 15 inches.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # C14048 is not a fit for your 2006 Ford F-53 motorhome. We do have a few options like the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 18" to 51" Wide # C13702 that is confirmed to fit and also rated for 5,000 lbs capacity. We don't have anything compatible with your motorhome and the desired use with trailer and car at that capacity. The maximum capacity is 5,000 lbs. This is based on the hitch receiver itself...

  • Availability of Class IV or V Hitch for 2008 Ford E-450 Cab and Chassis
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14048 is designed to fit Ford F Series Cab and Chassis models. Since there is not a custom fit hitch available for your 2008 E-450 Cab and Chassis, I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41990-07. This is a Class V hitch with a weld on installation. It will fit vehicle frames up to 44" and has a 7" drop for clearance. It has a 2" receiver and a maximum gross trailer weight of 16,000 lbs and tongue weight of 1,600 lbs....

The distance from the center of the mounting holes left to right is 31". I have attached a photo below with these measurements. Unfortunately, we don't have any measurements to the end of the flange.

Similar hitch # C13701 offers the same fit and capacities but its receiver tube is lower, 2-inches of drop for better clearance around the RV's rear exterior panels.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Coachmen Mirada on a Ford Chassis
    We may have a trailer hitch that will work with your 2003 Coachmen Mirada, however the Curt Custom Fit Class V Trailer Hitch, # C14048, that you referenced will not fit Class A motor homes. Before installing a Class V trailer hitch on your Mirada, I recommend checking your owners manual or with an RV dealer to determine the towing capacity of your motor home. Most motor homes do not have high towing capacities, so a Class V hitch may be overkill. Our Class V trailer hitches are universal...

  • Class IV Trailer Hitch for a 1999 Ford E450 Van with Utility Body
    The most popular Class IV trailer hitch for 1999 full size Ford vans is Draw-Tite hitch # 41906. Since you will be adding a custom bumper around the hitch and assuming the frame is the same on the E-450 utility van compared to the other E-series models, this hitch should fit. I have linked a video showing installation and the instructions so you can compare them to your fan to ensure fit.

  • Recommended Brake Controller And Wiring For 2007 Ford E-450 Van
    The brake controller I recommend for your 2007 Ford E-450 is the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, part # 90195. This is one of our most popular controllers because it is easy to install and operate. I also recommend the brake controller adapter, part # 3035-P. This simply plugs into the back of the brake controller and the other end plugs into the connector located under the driver side of the dash below the fuse assembly. There are 2 connectors under the dash and you want to make sure you use the...
