2020 Chevrolet Equinox

Shipping was fast and a day sooner than originally stated. From order inception to delivery to my front door, I had the ability to track the order status. Exceptional tracking system! The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver -Custom Fit- Class I -1/14” was securely packaged in a heavy-grade cardboard box with convenient hand cutouts for easy carrying. Complete with thorough instructions and all the required mounting hardware. The instructions were spot-on and easy to follow. Additionally, the on-line video tutorial was invaluable to see first hand how to get the hitch into position to mount.
Extremely satisfied with the overall purchase process and experience. I will definitely be using etrailer for any future trailering purchases. Great job to your entire team!


Super easy to install, helps to have 2 sets of hands, but capable of installing by yourself. Also helps to have the back end up on lifts to give you room to work.

Hitch receiver is perfect for a 2-bike rack with 1 1/4" hitch.



This hitch has been working well since day 1! I have it on a work vehicle that may or may not be allowed from the fleet perspective, so being able to easily remove and add back on as needed simple 20min process is fantastic. Recently go a flat shelf rack so I can carry whitewater raft and gear. Cannot be happier.

2022 Chevrolet Equinox

It took me about 2 hours to install this and wiring. The instructions say 15-30 min which annoys me because I don’t think anyone is doing it that fast. Anyhow the hitch looks and feels like very good quality. Hoping to try it out soon.


I received 9 out of 10 hitch receivers ordered. One is still floating out there in UPS land. Due to issues getting the receivers, it has been about 6-weeks since the order before the receivers shipped. I love working with etrailer, but the delays are starting to make us uncomfortable.

2024 Chevrolet Equinox

As described.


Fast service.


Great product and customer service!


Order was delivered on time.




Hitch worked great and the company was easy to work with.

2022 Chevrolet Equinox

These are good hitches and work very well for our need, using a bike rack. However, in shipment almost every box has places where the rack has broken through the box. No damage, but I worry about how these might damage other things during shipment.


Had problem on my end. Problem was handled promptly, courteously and efficiently. Was very satisfied.


I needed a lot of hitches in a hurry. Caroline B at etrailer came through for me. She couldn't send all I needed but she sent me what she could. I'm very grateful for the help! Caroline B really spoiled me rotten! Thanks!!


Unfortunately, the carrier mishandled the package and there are some minor scrapes in the powder coating. There are also marks in the finish where the bolts had been tightened down previously suggesting it's probably a return. But overall, I am very satisfied with the hitch.

Im sorry to see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference.


Very happy with my trailer hitch relatively easy to install with the right tools.


Good fit. Did install it myself but would be much easier with two as they suggested


Good value


Spectacular company! They communicate well, and deliver the product they advertise. Class “A” vendor you should keep in your contacts!


This has worked very well for me not quit as easy to install as i thought it would be but very happy with it






Great products prices and customer serv ice


Perfect fit. Love the fishing tools.



Excellent customer service and with immediate shipping.

  • Can Rear Fascia On 2019 GMC Terrain Denali Be Reinstalled After Install Curt Trailer Hitch C98CR?
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR you were looking at will allow you to reinstall the OEM fascia on your 2019 GMC Terrain Denali as the hitch will sit underneath of the fascia. The fascia never gets completely removed to install the hitch, just the screws are removed to allow you more room to access the bolts to mount the hitch to your vehicle. If you can tell me what you are planning on using your trailer hitch receiver for I would be happy to confirm the best accessories for your...

  • Is There a 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch for a 2022 Chevrolet Equinox
    Yes, there is a 1-1/4" trailer hitch option for a 2022 Chevrolet Equinox. For this, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C98CR which offers a bolt-on fit without major drilling or cutting. It will be a great choice for bike racks with a smaller shank when you only need to carry a few bikes. Therefore, you don't have to worry about finding a new rack or worrying about adapters.

  • Is There a Hitch For 2020 GMC Terrain That Installs Above Bumper
    There isn't a hitch for your 2020 GMC Terrain that installs where the fascia is, I'm sorry to say. It certainly would be nice to have a hidden option, but that isn't something made for the '20 Terrain, as they only make one that sits below the bumper. If that's okay, you can go with either a 1-1/4" or 2" receiver: - 1-1/4" Receiver: Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR - 2" Receiver: Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C77FR

  • Recommended Hitch For Carrying A Bike Rack On A 2022 Chevy Equinox
    Unless your 2022 Chevy Equinox has the 2.0L Gas Engine with V92 Trailering Provisions, which is rated for 3,505 pounds towing, all other options will be rated to 1,500 pounds towing. The tongue weight capacity for all versions, including the 2.0L with the V92 package, will be 350 pounds, so both the Curt Class III # C77FR with the 2" receiver and the Class II # C98CR with the 1-1/4" receiver will be limited to these capacities. With that being said, the Class III 2" receiver on the # C77FR...

  • What Class II Hitch do You Recommend for My 2022 GMC Terrain?
    For the best class II hitch we currently offer for your 2022 GMC Terrain, I recommend the Curt Hitch - 1-1/4" # C98CR. Apart from providing you with an impressive 525 pounds of maximum tongue weight and 3,500 pounds of maximum gross towing capacity, the Curt hitch comes with a gloss outer coat that covers the powder base coat for superior protection against rust and corrosion. As with all hitches, I recommend consulting with your vehicle's owner's manual to confirm whether your Terrain...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2022 Chevrolet Equinox for Towing.
    For your 2022 Chevrolet Equinox I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C77FR. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver which will be perfect for towing your trailer. It has a bolt-on installation and a limited lifetime warranty. For wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118759. This plugs directly into existing wiring and will provide you with a 4-way connection to power your trailer's signal lights. I have attached some installation videos for your...

  • Can I use the Class II Hitch From my 2014 Equinox for my New 2019 Equinox if not What is Recommended
    I'm sorry but the Curt Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12291 and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36408 the two class II options for your vehicle only go up to the 2017 model year for the Chevrolet Equinox. For your 2019 I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C98CR and if you need wiring the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118750. Both of these are custom made and confirmed to fit you 2019 Chevrolet Equinox.

  • Recommended 2" Hitch for a 2024 Chevy Equinox

It is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver. If you are planning on towing you will also need a wiring harness item # C94FR, if you have the tow package, and a ball mount kit item # C45534. I also recommend using the No-Drill Mount Bracket item # 18136 and the item # C42CR to secure the 4-way connector...

  • Curt or Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch for 2020 GMC Terrain
    Between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36642 that fit your 2020 GMC Terrain, I would go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR These are very similar hitches, but the deciding factor here is that the Curt does have the significantly higher tongue weight capacity, 525 lbs vs. 350 lbs for the Draw-Tite. While this may not come into play often, it certainly can make a difference if you need to carry heavier cargo on a cargo carrier, for...

  • Comparing Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers For a 2022 Chevrolet Equinox
    Of the 2 Curt receivers available for your 2022 Chevrolet Equinox, I recommend the Receiver # C77FR as the better choice.

The tongue weight capacity of the receiver is 675lbs and the maximum trailer weight capacity is 4,500lbs. Be sure to not exceed the weight capacities for your particular Equinox given from Chevrolet.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Chevy Equinox for Cargo Carrier Use
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR does require temporarily lowering your exhaust on your 2018 Chevy Equinox to Install. This install is considered a difficulty level of 4/10. The access holes need to be enlarged by drilling, filing, or rotary tools. Curt hitches require the stabilization strap # 18050. I don't like the stabilization strap requirement, and the the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76419 does not require one. The installation is a little different due...
