The customer service has been great and proactive. While I have not installed the hitch yet the service and shipping was very good. I plan to use the hitch to mate with a factory installed receiver to provide for an extended hitch to pull a horse trailer with a truck camper. Customer service directed me to a much more economical option than the one I was considering. I expect I will need to do a little remanufacturing on my extension to make it all work but for the savings etrailer provided with the alternative hitch I can do a lot of remanufacturing.


Comments
The Hitch worked as represented. It was easy to install and fit the truck as it should. I am very happy with the end result.

  • Determining Ground Clearance on 2014 Ram 3500 with Curt Class V Hitch # C15803 Installed
    The Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15803 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2014 Ram 3500 and will sit directly beneath the factory hitch receiver on the truck. We have not gotten a chance to install this hitch on the 2014 Ram so we don't have any pictures, but I do have a measurement on the hitch that will allow you to see how far the new receiver will hang down below the truck. From the top of the mounting brackets on the hitch to the bottom of the receiver,...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C15803 Fitment for Factory Bumper
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15803 will bolt to the frame with the included hardware and if you have the OEM Hitch it will also bolt to part of that hitch. It does not connect to the bumper but rather will not fit on vehicles that have aftermarket bumpers installed. That is the reason you see "Requires factory bumper for installation" under the Installation Notes.

  • Why Does Curt Hitch C15803 Not a Confirmed Fit with Aftermarket Bumper
    Aftermarket bumpers are different sizes and shapes compared to the factory bumpers so the hitches we offer like the part # C15803 are designed to fit and clear the factory bumpers but since the aftermarket bumpers are a different size there's not easy way to tell if the hitch would also fit with it and not interfere.

  • What is the Highest Rated Hitch You Carry for a 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually?
    I have an answer about trailer hitches for your 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 dually. Unfortunately, we do not carry a hitch rated for a 30,000 pound towing capacity. The highest hitch we carry for your truck is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class V Commercial Duty - 2-1/2" # C15803. This hitch comes with a maximum gross towing capacity of 20,000 pounds and fits both 6-1/2 foot and 8-foot bed models.

  • Trailer Hitch to Fit with Factory Hitch on 2017 Ram 3500
    The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch # 41952 is a confirmed fit for the 2017 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis models, but not the actual pickup truck version of this vehicle. If you have the pickup version of the Ram 3500 with the factory hitch you'll want to use the Curt # C15803 (fits both 6-1/2 ft and 8 ft truck beds) which will sit under your existing factory hitch and does not require any modifications like removing the cross member, as long as you have the factory bumper; this hitch...

  • Recommended Class V Trailer Hitch for my 2014 Ram 3500
    We have a great solution but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15845 is not a confirmed fit for your 2014 Ram 3500. Instead the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15803 is the one to go with. It share the exact same specifications as the one you looked at but is custom designed for your truck with or without a factory hitch.

  • Replacing Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Ram 3500
    Your best option is going to be Draw-Tite hitch # DT45509. This hitch requires removal of the factory hitch on your 2016 Ram 3500. It is rated for 2,000 pounds tongue weight and 18,000 pounds gross trailer weight. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 2,500 pounds tongue weight and 18,000 pounds gross trailer weight. The available Curt hitches will all sit low whether you remove the factory hitch or not. The Draw-Tite hitch will be tucked up beneath the bumper like the factory...

  • Recommended Towing Trailer Hitch Extender For 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed With Truck Bed Camper
    If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver on your 2017 Ram 3500, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches - 24" to 34" Long # C45048. This would be limited to 4,500 lbs without weight distribution or 6000 lbs with weight distribution. If you don't have a factory receiver, then you will need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V Commercial Duty - 2-1/2" # C15803 to use that extension.

  • Recommended Class V Hitch for 1975 International HD200
    The Curt # C15803 you referenced is only a fit for 2014-2018 Ram trucks so that isn't the correct fit. Because you have a 34 inch frame, I recommend the Buyers Products Class 5 Service Body Hitch Receiver - 2-1/2" # 3373018538 which measures end to end 44 inches but then you will weld brackets at your required fit. For that hitch with 9 inch brackets, I recommend # 3371801052. If you want to use a smaller hitch, there is a bolt on option in the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom...

  • TorkLift Rear Camper Tie Downs for 2014 Ram 3500 with 8 Foot Bed
    The rear TorkLift tie-downs for your 2014 Ram 3500 with an 8-ft bed and no rear step under the truck bed and non-TorkLift aftermarket hitch are the # TLR3500. These are a powder coated steel construction so they'll be resistant to corrosion and durable. If you also need the front tie downs you'll want to use the # TLD2124 which are the matching pair for the # TLR3500. Because the Curt # C15803 is not pre-drilled for TorkLift tie downs, you may need to drill into the hitch side plates,...
