I have had the Curt trailer hitch installed for over a year. I installed it so I could add a 4-foot extension to compensate for my slide in camper. I have been towing a Jeep behind and it has worked out great. I would buy it again but I don't this think I will ever need to

Hasn't rusted. Works great. Much sturdier than the stock hitch.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch 15801 on 2018 Ram 2500 with Ranch Hand Legend Bumper
    I went to the warehouse to measure the brackets of Curt hitch # C15801 and found it was approximately 8-1/2" from the top of the brackets to the top of the receiver tube (see accompanying photo). So the fit will depend on how much room there is from the bottom of your 2018 Ram 2500's frame where the hitch installs to the bottom of your Ranch Hand Legend Bumper. You will need to measure that distance, and If the measurement is less than 8-1/2" the Curt # C15801 will fit your truck because...

  • Does Curt Hitch # C15801 fit Ram 2500 with Factory Hitch and Would it Have to be Removed
    The Curt Class V hitch part # C15801 does fit Ram trucks that have the factory hitch but it does not replace the factory hitch. Instead it install below it. This fits versions of the truck that have and do not have the factory hitch. We do not have any that replace the factory hitch.

  • What Is Tongue Weight Rating of Curt Hitch # C15801
    The Curt hitch part # C15801 that you referenced has a tongue weight capacity of 2,700 lbs and normally using a hitch adapter cuts that by 50 percent so you'd most likely have a capacity of 1,350 lbs but for a longer hitch extension the capacity reduction would be more and you'd have to check it to be sure. A lot of times they also have their own capacities as well so be sure to check that as well.

  • Can I Remove The Factory Hitch And Install The Curt Hitch # C15801 On My 2016 Ram 2500
    Yes, you can remove/replace the factory hitch on your 2016 Ram 2500 with The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15801. If you want to keep the factory hitch on you can do that as well and use the factory hitch so you can carry a bike rack or other hitch-mounted accessory while you tow. If you do remove it you will be able to stow a larger spare tire underneath your 2016 Ram 2500 6-1/2 foot bed with out without a factory installed hitch.

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch For A 2020 Ram 3500 6-1/2 Foot Bed With Factory Trailer Hitch
    When it comes to raising the tongue weight capacity of your 2020 Ram 3500 I would recommend installing The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15801.The Curt hitch has a receiver opening of 2-1/2 by 2-1/2 inches and has a maximum tongue weight up to 2,700 pounds. I would recommend checking your vehicle's manual to find the proper towing capacity for your vehicle. Using this hitch with a weight distribution hitch will keep the weight ratings the same for this hitch. Using this hitch will install...

  • In Bed Camper Tie-Downs and Second Receiver For a 2017 Ram 3500 Dually Rear End 6.5' Bed
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15801 is one of the more affordable options for adding a 2nd receiver to your 2017 Ram 3500. It will sit below and slightly in from the factory receiver. For the camper tie down this is one place where I have to recommend getting the frame mounted tie downs versus the more affordable bed mounted tie downs. You do not want to trust the thin sheet metal in the bed to hold all the weight of the camper in place. The TorkLift Front # TLD2131 and Rear # TLR3500...

  • Recommended Class V Hitch for a 2022 Ram 3500
    I would be happy to help you find a hitch for your 2022 Ram 3500. It looks like your 30’ Airstream International has a maximum capacity of 10,000 lbs. I have a couple of options for you depending on the bed length of your truck. All of the hitches with the capacity you are looking for require drilling for installation. If you have an 8 foot bed with or without the factory hitch you will want the Draw-Tite item # DT45518. This hitch is custom fit and bolts directly to your Ram 3500 with...

  • Is the Curt Hitch C15800 Designed to Fit Standard 2019 Ram 3500 Pickup
    If your 2019 Ram 3500 is a pick-up truck the Curt Class V Receiver Hitch part # C15800 is not a fit because it fits the cab and chassis model of the Ram 3500 which have a 34" wide frame. If your truck is a cab and chassis with 34" wide frame the Curt receiver is a great choice. I have attached a video of the hitch installed on a cab and chassis for your reference. It sounds like your truck is a 2019 Ram 3500 pick up. If it is a short bed model with a 6-1/2 ft bed, I recommend Curt Trailer...

  • Class V Trailer Hitch with 2-1/2 Inch Receiver for 2019 Ram 2500 With Factory Hitch
    There are trailer hitches that are Class V rated with a 2-1/2 inch receiver that will fit directly under the OEM hitch on your 2019 Ram 2500, though the correct one is going to depend on if your Ram has a 6-1/2 foot bed or 8 foot bed. If your 2019 Ram 2500 has a 6-1/2 foot bed you will need the Curt Trailer Hitch # C15801 which has a 20,000 lb towing capacity and 2,700 lb tongue weight capacity. If your 2019 Ram 2500 has an 8 foot bed you will need the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # DT45518...

  • Part Needed to Reduce Hitch Receiver Size to 2-Inches for Pro Series WD System
    Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4900 fits into a 2-1/2-inch hitch like # C15801, so it is not a good choice for use with the Pro Series weight distribution system # PS49582. If you want to use this 2-inch system in a 2-1/2-inch hitch you can add a reducer sleeve # 58102 to drop the receiver opening size down to 2-inches.
