2015 Jeep Cherokee

The hitch went on easily! I had a couple extra hands to help as it is a bit unwieldy by yourself. But the installation was straight forward and all the hardware arrived with the hitch. This is my second hitch purchase from etrailer, they are fast, and helpful. The first hitch I installed on a 2015 Cherokee, it arrived missing a couple grade V nuts. After calling the support line with the part number I had the missing pieces in a couple days!



A year in and the hitch is great! No issues and I feel like I can count on it working for as long as I have my truck!


Great is the correct word. I need to tow my 8000 lb . boat trailer. The web site gives out the right information and I was able to choose Curt class v . Ordered on Friday and the part was here on Saturday. I followed the instructions and got it installed Sunday. I am 74 years old and I got the hitch installed in about two hours by myself. The parts fits perfect and I did the whole job by myself. I would advise two would be lot easier. The associates at e trailer are superb . I would recommend any one to do business with them.

2023 Ram 1500

Part fit perfectly. The box came damaged and the bumper brackets were missing. Contacted etrailer and they shipped the missing parts the next day. Easy and quick installation. Did it by myself in about 90 minutes! Was initially concerned when description said "heat shield needs to be modified" however turned out to be a quick fix with a hammer!

2019 Ram 1500

Fit and works as described

relatively easily but not for the novice or the faint of heart.

Wish instructions came in color, although you can download color instructions!

2023 Ram 1500

This hitch fit perfectly on my truck and I’m now able to tow my travel trailer. A couple of notes though.. the instructions were hard to follow along. If they were a bit more detailed it would be better to understand. A video would be superb to follow along to. Also, the connector that it has us disconnect for the bumper wires is not the one that is needed. It’s a bit further down and a pain to take off. Overall it was an easy install just takes a bit of time!

2019 Ram 1500

Was a simple install replacing my Class III hitch.
Instructions were good but picture in them where very bad. To dark to see.
Box received damaged probably because it is such a heavy item.

2023 Ram 1500

I'm sure the product is great. However the customer service and return policy is not. I found this product via a google search and never used etrailers before. I drive a 2023 Ram 1500 Classic. This product is for a Ram 1500. Yes if I would have narrowed down the search via the website by going their first instead via google I would have not purchased this as it is the wrong fitment. However on the page for this product there are two different sections that explain fitment. One at the top right and midway down on the left. Seeing that it does fit a 2023 1500 mid left and not knowing that Classic would cause a problem (as this usually means body style difference) I assumed I was good and never saw the other note for Classics. Explaining to etrailers that their website should hold this information in ONE spot to make sure customers have a user friendly site meant nothing to them neither did the added information that it would not fit a Classic as it was "unconfirmed" via the page also meant nothing to them. You would think this along with feedback of their site would provide value to offset the return shipping cost. Apparently not. "Customer Service" unfortunately like most customers service people today on the two times I spoke with her over the phone had the "tone". You can hear it in her voice (dealt with one person). Everyone knows what I mean by that. I'm sure Curt makes a good product...just buy it elsewhere.

PS: They also sent the wrong instructions. Sent me instructions for a Ford. Glad they can make mistakes and not pay with time or money. Had to get them emailed.

2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

The installer said it was drilled for a 2019 Ram 1500, not the 2020 Ram 1500. It took adde effort to install it properly.


I haven’t installed this hitch but it sure looks like a well built unit. It definitely has some weight to it. Fast shipping with 1 day service.

Dodge Ram Pickup

I replaced the factory hitch receiver on my RAM 1500 Rebel after an accident that took out my bumper. The Curt Hitch Receiver was an easy install. The Curt hitch receiver is heavier and a much sturdier receiver than the OEM. Highly recommend this as a replacement or upgrade if you are towing any heavy trailers.

2022 Ram 1500

The hitch arrived in a damaged box and the mounting hardware and instructions were missing.

The hitch is unusable

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have sent your information along to our customer service team and they will be in touch. In the meantime, you may want to check the receiver tube as many hitches are shipped with the hardware and instructions stowed there.

2019 Ram 1500

The instructions were clear and the install went smoothly. After a year it’s still holding strong. I’ve used it to tow 2 tons of bricks on a few separate occasions and it worked fine. Highly recommend.

2021 Dodge Ram Pickup

Excellent fit on my 2021 Ram 1500 Bighorn. Easy to install, but it's a 2 man job, very heavy duty.


Great product and easy installation.

2020 Ram 1500

This hitch is heavy duty!!! It's installation is relatively easy IF you are handy with tools and mechanics. Towed my 12,000# travel trailer the day after installation. Hitch Worked Perfectly ! ! !



2019 Ram 1500

We installed the hitch this afternoon. The quality is excellent and it looks great as well.
The instructions we clear and concise with Words and pictures making installation much easier.
If it tows as good as it looks it will definitely be a 2 thumbs up purchase!


It was easy to install


When I received the hitch in the mail the box was damaged and missing all of the hardware. I contacted etrailer and they shipped out replacement parts no questions asked! Great to work with!


Great hitch!!


Great price and shipping was fast once the item was back in stock. is a solid marketplace.

2019 Ram 1500



Published time to install is only correct IF you read the instructions Before you start. Doing so will save a lot of time and heartaches.... Wonderful product and easy to follow instructions Thank you for making this process an easy fix

2020 Ram 1500



Great! So easy to install. Had it for about 1 year and it is working just as advertised!

2020 Ram 1500

Came in a reasonable amount of time at a great price. Now I hope it fits as advertised


Fit like a glove

  • Does Curt Hitch # C15005 For A 2021 Ram 1500 Require Removal Of Factory Trailer Hitch
    Yes, when installing The Curt Trailer Hitch # C15005 onto your 2021 Ram 1500 you will have to remove the factory hitch that you currently now have for the new hitch to fit. This hitch will replace the factory hitch and the bumper beam, given why the factory hitch has to be removed. The trailer hitch has a maximum gross trailer weight up to 15,000 pounds and has a maximum tongue weight up to 1,700 pounds. I would recommend checking your vehicle's manual to find out the proper towing capacity...

  • Recommended High Capacity Trailer Hitch for 2020 Ram 1500 Without Factory Hitch
    We've got exactly what you're looking for. The Draw-Tite Class IV hitch # 41913 has a huge 15000 lb towing/1700 lb tongue weight capacity that would work perfectly for you. You'll likely need to lower or temporarily remove the spare tire to make installation easier but once the install is complete, the hitch won't interfere with stowing the tire back where it came from.

    The Curt hitch part # C15005 does fit your 2019 Ram 1500 that has the factory Class III hitch but you will need to remove the factory hitch you have now for this to fit. Essentially this replaces the factory hitch and bumper beam which is why the factory hitch has to be removed. I attached a picture of what this looks like installed on a similar Ram truck as yours as well.

    If you have the 2019 Ram 1500 the only trailer hitch available that is confirmed to fit is the Curt Class IV & V Ultra Frame Receiver Hitch # C15005. If your truck is equipped with the factory hitch though it will need to be removed for this trailer hitch to install correctly.

    If you have the class III tow bumper installed on your 2022 Ram 1500, the highest weight capacity rating on a hitch we carry that is compatible with the bumper is the Curt Trailer Hitch item # C15005. This hitch comes with an impressive 1,700 pounds of tongue weight and 15,000 pounds of gross towing weight capacity. As with any hitch, I recommend confirming with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can handle that much weight. If you plan on towing with the Curt Hitch,...

This is a frame mounted design that's much more heavy duty overall. It still is mostly concealed when installed like you can see in the attached install picture.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Ram 1500 without Factory Hitch that is Rated for Weight Distribution
    For your 2019 Ram 1500 without the factory hitch we do have a hitch that is rated for use with weight distribution with the Draw Tite part # C15005 but the Curt # C13419 that you referenced is not rated for use with a WD system due to how it installs and the contact it makes with the truck frame. WD systems put additional stress on vehicle frames so you need the hitch to make a solid amount of contact with the truck to accommodate that.

  • Easiest to Install Trailer Hitch for 2020 Ram 1500
    There is an extremely simple trailer hitch installation for your 2020 Ram 1500, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13419 which you can reasonably expect to install in less than 15 minutes. All you really have to do is remove the plug from the bumper step, put the hitch in position and secure the hardware. That is literally the entire process. The only tools you need are a 3/4" socket, 1/2" hexbit socket, ratchet and torque wrench. This is compared to the Curt item # C15005 which requires removing...

  • Class V hitch for a 2021 Ram 1500 Warlock
    For your 2021 Ram 1500, I'd recommend the Curt item # C15005 Class V hitch. According to Curt, the hitch is compatible with all models of the 2021 Ram 1500, including your Warlock trim level. The hitch has a 15000 lb towing/1700 lb tongue weight capacity which is plenty for the boat you mentioned. You will want to verify the towing capacity of your truck, and be sure not to exceed that.

  • Where is the Receiver on a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 with 68265142AB Trailer Hitch
    There are two different trailer hitches for your 2019 Ram 1500 that came from the factory. There is one that has a 2" receiver tube opening below the bumper and one that has a cutout for a hitch ball in the bumper. It looks like you have the latter so there should be a plug in the center of the bumper that you can remove and then install a hitch ball like part # 63845. Is that is not the case or you would rather have a 2" receiver tube opening then you are going to want to remove the trailer...

  • Using Hitch Extender With Weight Distribution
    Using an extender such as the Brophy # ST18 might be possible, but it will depend on the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your truck. Using the extender will lower the hitch weight capacity by 1/3, so you'll want to find the ID label on the hitch which lists it weight distribution towing and tongue weight capacities. If 2/3 of the hitch towing and tongue weight capacity isn't less than the 360 lb tongue weight of the trailer, then using the extender would be okay. If the trailer's...

Both of these trailer hitches have a 2" receiver, 10,000 lb maximum towing capacity and 1,000 lb maximum tongue weight capacity. They are bolt-on installations so you will not have to drill to install either on your truck. I have added a link to installs of both hitches on a '19 Ram 1500 Classic for you.

    2020 was a split model year for the Ram 1500, with two distinct models that use different hitch fits, the Ram 1500 Classic which is a carryover of the 2019 model or the all-new 2020 Ram 1500. If you have the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, the # 14374 you'd looked at would be a great choice, and would provide a 10000 lb towing/1000 lb tongue weight capacity for standard towing or # 12000 lbs towing/1200 lb tongue weight if used with weight distribution.

Since the hitches aren't interchangeable between the two, the hitch you need will depend on which model you have. How to tell the difference? The Ram 1500 has a flatter hood and the emblem in the center of the grille has 'RAM' spelled out. The 1500 Classic has a more curved hood, with the center...

    You can use the Curt # C13419 on your 2020 Ram 1500 and it will handle the weight of your 3800-lbs Winnebago Micro Minnie trailer, however if you're ever planning on towing anything larger there is a better solution. I recommend using the Curt item # C15005 since you're likely going to be pretty close to the tongue weight capacity of the # C13419 and even the slightest upgrade in trailers at some point in the future could render it useless for towing.
