1994 Ford F-250 and F-350

Ordered this receiver hitch and got it in two or three days. Easy to install using my floor jack to raise it in place on my 1994 F-250. For some reason the previous owner had put a class 3 hitch on. Love the hitch and the quick delivery. etrailer has always been my go to shopping

1996 Ford F-250 and F-350

With my bumper in the upper position on the brackets this hitch cleared. I was most worried about this as my drw truck has a clearance light below the tailgate. This hitch installed easily as per instructions.
Made in the USA quality!! Thank you very much!!

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed on 99 Ram 2500 4x4 long bed. Install took 4+ hrs. Had to torch off the old bolts. Had to drill new holes for 1 set of bolts. The safety chain loops are so thick that it is difficult to get my breakaway switch carabiner on.
All in all, super heavy duty, it fit with spare tire and 4” exhaust. Just properly block it up. I didn’t the first time, and it fell on my face.

1988 Ford Bronco

88 bronco. Hitch fit great. I needed to grind a few spots but nothing more that 1/2 inch.

1983 Ford F-100, F-150, F-250, F-350

Price is good, the shipping was fast and the quality is outstanding. The installation required some drilling but overall was not bad. I will refer anyone to this site.


Perfect fit to my truck - EASY to install.
included everything I needed to

Ford F-350 Super Duty

I bought this product with the understanding it may not fit with my 10" drop bumper though it was designed for my application (1995 F350 DRW). Thanks to etrailer who gave detailed measurements in their FAQ section for the C15300, let me measure my truck and figured I could make it work.

It installed fairly straight forward like most hitches and I simply had to adjust the bumper brackets and use 3/8" (.375") x 2" bar stock to make spacer blocks for all the mounting points. It tucked up exactly like I wanted compared to the other options and it fit in place of the step bumper receiver plate I had in place.

I purchased the C15300 because I like the fully welded design and gusseting that leads to its ratings. I am very happy with my purchase and etrailer's product offerings.


Nice hitch. Bolt holes lined up perfectly. Down fall is the hardware they sent had 3 different type of bolts/flanges and not enough of the right ones and had to go to tractor supply to get bolts. For $XXX you’d think they would send the right bolts and enough of them.

It is not typical that it would come with incorrect hardware. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


Afternoon, it's been great zero issues fit and function was perfect, here's some photos of it being put to use , thanks again !

1997 Ford F-250 and F-350 Heavy Duty

Good quality receiver. Required a lot of alternations to make fit. I repeat did not come anywhere close to fitting following the install instructions for a 97 F-350.

Jenny N.


I wanted to ask you what modifications that you needed to do to install the hitch.


I installed this hitch on a 1993 2wd dodge d250, it bolted up to existing holes in the truck frame. Had it installed in about 20 minutes. I like that it is heavy duty and constructed well.


I installed this hitch on a 1991 Dodge W250. It hangs down lower than it needs to for the factory bumper and required drilling the frame to install the hitch. Drilling the frame and the overall installation went well, however there are existing holes that could've been used had the hitch been designed differently. I do understand this hitch is designed for several applications and in that situation it is difficult to make every vehicle a perfect fit. This hitch is very stout, I like the one piece design and the load rating. I have a 14,000 gvw flatbed that I haul a variety of junk on and this hitch is definitely up for the job. The next time I need a hitch I will definitely consider this one.

Charles B.


Still works great after several thousand miles of hauling heavy junk!

1977 Dodge Full Size Pickup

Nice hitch, but terrible packaging, the box was destroyed when delivered, parts falling out of it.

Oh my! I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

1992 Dodge Ram Pickup

Thank you etrailer! I received my hitch right away and the box was in good condition. I installed the hitch and it looks great. I bought this hitch for the increased tongue capacity over my old hitch.



My hitch is still working great. The finish is holding up great also.


Originally purchased another hitch and didn’t look at the lead time. George sent me an email saying it wasn’t in stock and told me I could call to get another one that was in stock. I called and ED was able to hook me up with another one. Awesome customer service and the hitch bolted right up!

2013 Ford Ranger

The hitch is extremely heavy duty and I highly recommend this product. Etrailer has great customer service, I received the hitch a day before the expected arrival date. I installed this on my 1977 Ford F-150 Ranger with the help of my 13 yr old grandson. This receiver hitch fit my truck perfectly, no modifications were needed. We removed the spare tire, drilled the holes and mounted the hitch per the instructions. The entire process took a little over an hour. I use a Shocker Hitch with an airbag, and it fits this hitch perfectly. I highly recommend Etrailer.

1993 Dodge Ram Pickup

I put this on our 1993 Dodge dually after I noticed what looked like stress fractures on the old hitch while I was having an exhaust leak repaired. The failure was probably caused by an overloaded dump trailer full of gravel. The price for this Class V hitch from etrailer couldn’t be beat so I bought it. I’ve since pulled serveral large loads with my 3400lb dump trailer, the heaviest being a load of gravel weighing 5.67 tons according to the bill. More than 1000lbs shy of the 16000lb limit and it pulled great, even at over 60 mph.This hitch is heavy and well made. I use a forged ball mount with square tube clamp attached to make the assembly rigid. You’ll be amazed at how much this will quiten all of your towing. I feel like I got a great deal from etrailer on this hitch and wouldn’t hesitate to buy it again if we get another truck.


I ordered the Curt trailer hitch receiver and also another kit that I thought we needed to install it. They called me and told me the kit I ordered was in the trailer hitch already. It saved me money for them to call and let me know. I really appreciated the info and that I didn't need it.

1997 Ford F-250 and F-350 Heavy Duty

Very happy with the product. Was able to install by myself in a little over an hour, fit like a glove and has performed flawlessly with the loads of firewood I've been hauling. Shipping was fast, and the overall experience with etrailer was absolutely fantastic. Etrailer was one of the only websites that had an accurate description of the frame width/depth dimensions that made ordering the right hitch a breeze. Would recommend Etrailer to anyone in the market for Heavy Duty/Standard Duty Receiver Hitches, and all other trailer needs. Thanks for the great product and will be hauling with this hitch for some time. Have a Blessed day


Excellent to deal with incredible fast shipping will use from here on out for my trailer repair business

1989 Ford F-150, F-250, F-350

I'm pleased with my purchase. I wanted the highest capacity for my 1988 F350 4WD Crew Cab, that I could find. This one at the time I selected it, had the second highest towing, distributed-towing, and tongue weight rating of all of them (that would fit my truck). There was a really nice Torklift that had double (stacked) 2x2 receivers with the best rating, but it was significantly more expensive, and the Curt I got matches my truck's max tow rating. I didn't set out to get the welded one-piece unit, but it just turned out that way. Having seen it in person, and installed it, if someone has a similar truck, I'd have no problem recommending. It's a heavy heavy unit, that will last the lifetime of the truck.


Great receiver, built like a tank, finish is awesome, much better than my Reese, on my other truck! I tow every day & this receiver still looks new, will only buy Curt from now on. Delivery was very fast & ordering was a breeze, with etrailer. I also had to call Curt for specific measurements that are not stated on the product info. ( on purpose I think ) & the support at Curt was great!



This hitch is awesome! I still tow every day & once I wash the diesel soot off of it, it still looks perfect! The finish is still top notch & the entire hitch is holding up better than any I’ve ever had before. Will only buy Curt now.

1996 Chevrolet Cobalt

One extremely tough hitch. I have a 1996 Ford F250, the body shop thought it wouldn't work. I got it home and with a lot of grunting and drilling (use a new cobalt bit), I was able to bolt it, one side at a time. When drilling, use some cutting oil that's used for black iron pipe (Oatey, found in plumbing will work).

To make sure your carriage bolt plate will seat flat, make sure to drill as close inward toward the center of your vehicle as you can, allowing yourself enough metal as is reasonable. Thanks etrailer for the expedited shipping and great phone help. I've attached some pics for those who want to see what it looks like installed.


I loved the hitch, it fit perfectly. However, I never received my trailer electrical connector. The box was pretty mangled when it got to me, so I’m pretty sure the connector fell out in transit. Not happy about that. Hopefully I will be able to get a refund, as I had to get one locally and splice it in to make it fit.

Thanks for reaching out! I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this as soon as they can.

Ford F-150

Very happy with the service and the products. My Ford F-150 pulls a big trailer, with a lot of equipment weight, so the hitch and accessories have to be heavy-duty.

I had a couple of questions, and they were answered within a reasonable amount of time, and I was able to order the correct parts.

The order arrived in record time. Everything fit as advertised. I've got a rock-solid trailer hitch now, that's up to the task. has my full recommendation.

  • Does Gas Tank of 1994 Ford Bronco to Install Curt Hitch
    The gas tank of your 1994 Ford Bronco does not need to get removed to install the Curt hitch part # C15300 that you referenced. You will need to drill to install the hitch as well.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15300 Compatibility With Ranch Hand Style Bumper Compared To Factory
    For your 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup with ranch hand style bumper, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class V XD - 2" # C15300 is a confirmed fit. I don't know what the factory measurement are on that hitch, especially in regards to an aftermarket bumper. I reached out to my contact at Curt and he thinks you have the best option. He said that the last mounting hole for that bumper is 11 inches to the end of that receiver tube, so you can do a quick measurement to see if this will meet your needs.

  • What Capacity Truck Should I Purchase
    The short and sweet answer is to choose a truck that has a towing capacity greater than that of the heaviest trailer you plan on towing. This being said, determining the ultimate towing capacity of a truck can be tricky, because there are many variables that can affect what the bottom-line towing capacity of a truck is. These variables include engine size, transmission, axle ratio, whether the truck is 2WD or 4WD, the cab configuration and even the bed length can have an effect as well....

  • How to Determine Curt Hitch C15300 Clearance with Rear Skid Plate on 1987 Ford F-150
    Curt Class V hitch # C15300 is a confirmed fit on your 1987 Ford F-150. To help you determine if it will be compatible with your skid plate I went to our warehouse and took a measurement of the hitch to find out the distance from the mounting brackets (that bolt to the bottom of your frame rails) down to the center of the crosstube. This dimension you can compare to your frame-to-skid plate dimension to see if the hitch will clear it. The photo I prepared for you shows that from the top...

  • How Much Weight Can 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Tow
    GVWR actually does not refer to trailer towing capacity at all. That's the capacity the vehicle has basically without a trailer. Depending on how your truck is equipped the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 could have a capacity of up to 10,450 lbs trailer weight. You'll want to check your owners manual or with a nearby Ram dealer to determine your specific capacity.

  • What Does GVWR Mean for a Truck
    The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), or gross vehicle mass (GVM) is the maximum operating weight/mass of a vehicle as specified by the manufacturer including the vehicle's chassis, body, engine, engine fluids, fuel, accessories, driver, passengers and cargo but excluding that of any trailers. Maximum trailer weight rating is the heaviest trailer you can tow. So for your truck the heaviest trailer you can tow would be 8,400 lbs regardless of what hitch you use. So you would not be able...

  • Is Spare Tire Repositioning Necessary on 1992 Ford F-250 With Curt Hitch C15300?
    I spoke with a representative of Curt, who told me that Curt hitch # C15300 may require the repositioning of the spare tire on your 1992 Ford F-250, depending on the width of your spare tire and if you have a short bed or long bed. With a short bed, then you will have to reposition or remove the tire, but with a long bed there is a chance you may not have to if the tire is small enough. As for a solution, you could remove the spare tire altogether, or use the suggested aftermarket repositioner....

  • Can Hitch Extender be Used with Curt Trailer Hitch # C15300
    With the longer hitch extensions like the 30 inch one you have currently the extension is actually what will fail long before the hitch. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15300 has a tongue weight capacity of 1,200 lbs when used with a hitch extender but most likely the extender that you do have has a much lower capacity.

  • What Does GVWR Mean for Trailer
    GVWR stands for "Gross Vehicle Weight Rating" and you are on the money - it means the total combined weight allowed of the trailer and cargo when fully loaded. Trailers will have two weights, dry weight and cargo capacity. These two weights added together will be the trailer's GVWR and when choosing a trailer hitch receiver or fifth wheel hitch, you want to be sure you get one with a capacity that exceeds the GVWR of your trailer and that your vehicle also has the necessary towing capacity.

  • Can I Pull a 6900-lbs Trailer with my 2008 Chevy Silverado Extended Cab with Short Bed
    I'll start off by saying that the weights that you're seeing are the maximum capacities and not their actual weights, so you've got some room to work with. The GVWR is going to be the total weight that the truck can support with passengers and cargo (it factors in 150-lbs for the driver of the vehicle already)- your curb weight is going to be less than that, which is why when you're adding everything up it appears to be over. The good news is that the curb weight of the truck looks to be...

If you find the rear most mounting hole in the underside of the frame member and measure 10-3/4 inches rearward, it'll give you a good idea of how far back the face of the receiver would sit.
