Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2000 Dodge Van - Curt

Today on our 2000 Dodge Full Size Van, we'll be installing the Curt Hitch, part number 13015. This is what our hitch looks like installed on the vehicle. Now we'll give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch such as a ball mount, bicycle rack, or cargo carrier. From the center of hitch-pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is approximately 3-1/2". From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground is approximately 17-3/4". Now let's install our hitch. First we'll point out the locations where the hitch will be mounted to the vehicle. There are three on each side. Next we'll point out the hardware that will be used to mount the hitch to the vehicle. We will use the 1/2" carriage bolt as well as a spacer block and a hex-flange nut. The hardware will be installed as follows.

The carriage bolt through the hole in the spacer block which will then be put into the frame. Then the hitch will be installed. Finally, the flange nut will hold the hitch against the frame. To install the carriage bolt and the spacer blocks into the frame, we will use the fish wire technique. Once you feed the fish wire in, you'll feed a spacer block onto the end, followed by threading on one of the 1/2" carriage bolts. You will then pull it back into place. We found on this one, the middle bolt, you can reach up and put the spacer block in, followed by dropping in the 1/2" carriage bolt. For the third hole, you'll again need to use the fish wire technique. Once you have all three of these in on one side, move over to the other side. Now that all six of the hardware are installed, get someone to help you put the hitch up into place.

Be careful when you're installing the hitch up into place that you don't push any of the carriage bolts back up into the frame. While holding the hitch up into place, install at least one flange nut on each side to hold the hitch into place while you put the other four flange nuts on as well. Tighten all six down and then torque them to the manufacture's specification. With that, that will complete the installation of our Curt Hitch, part number 13015, on our 2000 Dodge Full Size Van. .

First time ordering from etrailer. Awesome experience. Easy finding the correct hitch, quick shipping and a easy install. Bolted right up. The wire fish to get the bolts into the frame was a very nice touch. Appreciate a stand up business, in a time where so many are shady. 521254

Just what I wanted, unit was a little narrow (1/8") had to bang it with a small sledge hammer to get it to fit - NO PROBLEM ! Unit came with 1/2" bolts and nuts - vehicle already had Metric Nuts welded to frame - again NO PROBLEM ! Just didn't have to fish bolts though the frame. 46550

I looked everywhere in my local area for the right hitch with no luck. I shopped online and found a couple $50-$75 more with shipping. Then I saw Etrailers ad and clicked on it, not only was it priced better I spent enough for the free shipping and to top all that they upgraded me to 2 day shipping. They are awesome!!! If and when I need something else I will be back. They estimated the installation at 40min it took like 20min and was so easy.THANKS again!! 33750

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Recommended Hitch for 1998 Dodge Ram B1500 Van with Factory Standard Bumper
  • For a 1998 Dodge B1500 van with a standard factory bumper (and no weld nuts in the frame) the hitch I recommend is the USA-made Curt # 13015. I suggest this hitch because it has a higher weight rating than the Draw-Tite # 75140, 6000-lbs trailer weight rather than 5000-lbs, which gives you a useful safety margin. It includes all required hardware and an installation video is linked for you too. If you also need a 4-pole harness you can use Curt part # C55328 which offers simple plug-in...

  • Hitch Availability for 1999 Dodge 1500 Conversion Van
  • Several hitches, both Class III and Class IV types, are offered for the different versions of the 1999 full-size Dodge van. The key factor in selecting the right one is the type of bumper on the van, either a standard bumper or a step bumper. The presence of the spare tire is not noted by the manufacturers as affecting the fit; only the bumper type matters. Please see the linked article on bumper types. Versions of the van with existing weld nuts on the frame are not compatible with...

  • Could Curt Hitch # 13015 Fit 2000 Dodge 3500 Roadtrek Van 190
  • I looked up pictures of 2000 RoadTrek RV's made from Dodge Vans and some of them appear very similar to the standard Dodge van they were built off of and our hitches like part # 13015 would fit and work well. Check out the picture I attached and if the rear bumper is the same as what is in the picture this hitch would fit and work well. The second picture I attached shows the underside of the van with the hitch installed. You would need to compare that to your vehicle as well.

  • What Are Weldnuts And What Hitch Will Fit A 2001 Dodge Van Using The Existing Weldnuts
  • Weldnuts are the nuts that a mounting bolt will thread into and are welded to the holes on the inside of the vehicles frame. Usually it is just a nut inside the vehicle frame but it might be a plate with threads. Removing the weldnuts might be very difficult since they are located inside the vehicles frame and hard to access. I am sending a link to a video that will show how to remove corrosion inside a weldnut. This video will show you the weldnut in the frame. On your 2001 Dodge...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1999 Dodge Ram Van to Move a Boat Trailer
  • There are no front mount trailer hitches that will fit the 1999 Dodge Full-Size vans. They are not built on the same platform as the Ram trucks of the same generation so the front mount hitches for the Ram trucks will not fit the Ram Vans. You can install a rear trailer hitch. If your van has the standard bumper then you can use # 13015 (Hitch will not work on models with existing weldnuts on the frame). And if it has the factory step bumper use # 13590.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Ram 1500
  • If your 2019 Ram 1500 isn't equipped with a factory hitch I strongly recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13419. This custom hitch will line right up to existing holes in the frame rails of your Ram for a no-drill installation, features a 6,000 pound towing weight capacity, and is made right here in the USA. The Curt Trailer Hitch # 13015 that you referenced is designed for certain model years of the Dodge Van and will not fit your Ram. I have attached the installation...

  • Recommended Hitch for 2001 Dodge Van 2500 With Motorcycle Carrier
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch # 13015 is a confirmed fit for your 2001 Dodge van with a standard bumper, and will work well with an aluminum motorcycle carrier like the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. The motorcycle carrier has a weight capacity of 400 pounds. Keep in mind you will want the carrier weight and the weight of your motorcycle to stay within the tongue weight limits for your hitch receiver and your vehicle. You may also want to check out part # e98882....

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2002 Dodge Ram Van
  • You can use the Hollywood Racks SR1 Bike Rack part # HRSR1 on a vehicle that has an off-center spare tire, but since yours has a cover on it this would not be the correct rack to use unless you were okay with removing the cover. You would first need to start with a hitch if you do not have one already. For that you would want the part # 13015 as it has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2000 Dodge 1500 Camper Van
  • We don't have any front mounted hitches or bike racks available for your 2000 Dodge Camper Van. The best option I could list for you would be to go with a rear mounted hitch and bike rack. For a hitch I would recommend the # 13015 if you don't have one already. For a bike rack you should check out the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670. This is a great rack at a great price that our customers have left a ton of positive reviews for. Check out the review video I attached for more info.
