Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V Commercial Duty - 2-1/2" - C15802

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (9 Customer Reviews)

Specially designed for heavy-duty towing, this fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


The customer service is great. A local vendor delivered 3 wrong hitch receivers to me. I decided to take a chance on ordering online and was concerned that I would start down a rabbit hole all over again. Instead I was put at ease that etrailer had the solution. I placed the order and it arrived in Arizona quickly and fit perfectly.

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I purchased a 2019 Ford F350 Platinum SRW, to discover at a later date that the aftermarket hitch was rated 3,000 lbs than the truck's rating. After I stopped swearing, I ordered this Curt Commercial Duty hitch. It is clearly much sturdier than the original and I now feel confident while towing my toyhauler. Removing the original hitch required an impact air wrench, but was straight forward. Installation of the Curt hitch was straight forward as well, but required a pretty hefty torque wrench to get the proper torque. Overall the Installation was not difficult and I am very pleased with the hitch. Etrailer provided accurate information, a great price and quick delivery.


STANDARD TRAILER HOOKS DO NOT FIT ON THE HITCH!!! Unbelievable. Hopefully someone with half a brain and basic experience designs the next one. Waste of money.

2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I ordered this receiver on sunday 12/20/20, i was informed it shipped sunday afternoon, it showed up wednesday 12/2320 during a snow storm! I was able it install it over the weekend and it is a beast and a perfect fit.

2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Haven't installed yet but by the looks of it it will do the job without any problems.

Great very good hitch

  • Tongue Weight of 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Curt Trailer Hitch
    You're correct that adding a trailer hitch, like the Curt you referenced # C15802, that is rated higher than your truck will not increase your truck's capabilities. Trailer hitches are often overrated for the vehicles they're designed for. It's mainly so the hitch will still be enough for the same model of vehicle with different options that do increase its capacity.

  • What is the Recommended Tongue Weight for 2017 Ford F-250
    In your case, you will have to follow the tongue weight rating of your 2017 Ford F-250. The tongue weight rating on the Curt Trailer Hitch receiver, # C15802, is the weight that this particular hitch will fail and does not represent the total towing capacity of your truck. The max tongue weight that you will be allowed to tow will be the max of 1500 that is rated for your vehicle. Even if the hitch has a tongue weight rated up to 2500 lbs your vehicle cannot handle that much tongue weight....

  • Class V Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    I highly recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch # C15802 for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty because it is a bolt-on installation that will not require drilling into your truck's frame and has the highest tongue weight capacity of any available hitch for your truck. Like you were wanting, this is a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2" receiver.

  • Will Installing Higher Capacity Curt Hitch on 2017 Ford F-250 Give Vehicle More Towing Capacity
    With the Curt hitch part # C15802 installed on your 2017 Ford F-250 you will definitely have a higher capacity hitch that would not be the weak point in your towing setup. It can't give you more capacity than the truck has but the added capacity doesn't hurt anything and basically allows you to know that the hitch wouldn't be what fails if you towed over capacity.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2017 Ford F-250 With High Tongue Weight Capacity
    Yes. For your 2017 Ford F-250 6.7L diesel, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V Commercial Duty - 2-1/2" # C15802 which is rated for tongue weights up to 2,700 lbs. This won't increase the tongue weight range of your truck determined by the manufacturer which is set for 10% of the towing capacity. The hitch is rated independently so the hitch receiver can handle up to that 2,700 lb capacity.

  • Capacity of the Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    If you have the 6.2 V8 engine in your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty than the maximum tongue weight rating is 1,500 lbs and you would not benefit from replacing the factory trailer hitch but if you have the 6.7L V8 engine then the maximum tongue weight rating is 1,800 lbs and you would see benefits from replacing the factory trailer hitch. If you have the 6.7L V8 engine then I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15802. This option is a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2" receiver...

  • Will Curt Clevis Hook Attach to Curt Class V Hitch?
    The Curt 81960 clevis hooks you referenced have a 1" opening, and the safety chain loops of Curt hitch # C15802 are approximately 1-1/8" wide so you would be able to use them, but the hooks would not quite close. For Curt clevis hooks with a larger opening there is the # C81970 which has a 1-1/3" opening, as well as the # C81980, which has an opening of 1-1/4". I've added links to video reviews of these hooks for you to take a look at as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Ball Mount For 2017 Ford F-250
    We have one trailer hitch that is designed to fit your 2017 F-250. It is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C15802. This is a Class V hitch and it has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening.

It has a 2-inch and a 2-5/16 inch hitch balls included.

  • Conventional Towing Capacity of 2017 Ford F-250 4x4 6.7L Turbo Diesel
    The towing capacity for a pickup like your 2017 Ford F-250 Diesel 4X4 depends on all of the factory equipment installed, including engine, cab style, transmission and rear differential. You are correct that a hitch may be rated for more or less towing capacity than the truck itself; the lower-rated item always determines overall capacity for the combined system. The three best places to confirm any vehicle's towing capacity are the owner's manual, the dealership who can look up the VIN...

  • Aftermarket Class V Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250
    If your bumper-pull toy hauler trailer has a tongue weight (TW) of 1400-lbs without your vehicles loaded (but with full water and propane tanks) usually the TW after you load ATVs will remain pretty much the same or potentially drop slightly. This depends on the weight and specific placement of the load relative to the axle. Two very heavy ATVs placed far to the rear of the trailer's garage area could tend to lift the tongue slightly, reducing TW a little. Just the same, since you are...

    The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch # 325-GH-1625 weighs a total of 70 pounds. This is because the hitch is made out of heavy-duty steel and is built for brute strength. If you are looking at doing some heavy-duting towing on your 2022 Ford F-350, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V Commercial Duty - 2-1/2" # C15802.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Ball Mount For 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing More Than 1 Trailer
    I recommend the Curt Class V Receiver Hitch part # C15802 for the 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty because because it offers more towing capacity than the B & W option and the installation is a bit easier since it is one solid piece that you bolt up to the frame. Since you are towing more than 1 trailer you will need an adjustable ball mount so you can adjust the rise or drop depending on which trailer you are towing. For that I recommend Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch...

    It sounds like you're looking for both a hitch for your truck, and the pintle, so we've got exactly what you're looking for. For a hitch with a 2-1/2" receiver for your 2019 Ford F-250 I recommend using the Curt # C15802 because of the durable powder coating that Curt uses on their hitches compared to others. This is a commercial duty, Class V hitch that will be perfect for heavy duty jobs. For a pintle setup that allows you to use a 2" hitch ball as well, I recommend using the Convert-A-Ball...

  • Is there a Ball Mount Larger than a Class V 2-1/2 Inch
    If your hitch receiver opening is larger than 2-1/2 inches then the next step up is a 3 inch if you are talking about physical size and not capacity. The 3 inch ball mount you need is # 40701 if this is the case. The hitch ball to fit is # C40085. This is not a common size though so I do recommend verifying the size of the receiver opening on the hitch. I have also included a link to our ball mount main page.
