Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Toyota Corolla - Curt

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2018 Toyota Corolla, you're going to be taking a look at . I'm going to show you how to install the Curt Class 1 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11265.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible. However, it does have a round tube design, so it's going to fit with the contour of the vehicle.This is going to be a Class 1, it's going be an inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter. It's going to have plate style safety chain loops and you can see it's got plenty of room for different sized safety chain hooks.Hitch pin hole is going to be half inch in diameter and this hitch is going to come with its own pin and clip.Now, the receiver tube does sit nice and tucked up, underneath the bumper fascia, so you're not going to have to worry about hitting your legs or your shins on it.You're going to have a 200 lbs max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure of the inside of the receiver tube. It's going to have a 2,000 lbs maximum trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included.Now, I do recommend checking your owners manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight and you're going to want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now, Curt does recommend the use of stabilization straps for any non-wheeled loads.Now, this hitch does have a reinforced collar to give you a little extra stability on your receiver tube.

However, it's not going to change the weight. It does give it a nice clean look while it's on the vehicle though.This hitch is going to have nice clean welds between the receiver tube, your safety chain loops and your cross tube. It is going to be a black powder coated steel, to resist any corrosion.Now, let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack, or a cargo carrier.From the center of the hitch pin hole, to the outer most part of the bumper, it'll be about 3". From the ground to the top, inner most part of the receiver tube will be about 11". Now, it's a good idea to get a raise shank for better ground clearance.Now let's show you how to get this installed.One thing that's going to make it a little bit easier, if you put the back of the vehicle on ramps and raise the back of it up just a little bit.

If you don't have ramps, it'll work on the ground. It's just going to make it a little bit tight.Now, you can see we have it on ramps and that's just to make it a little bit easier for you at home to see exactly what we're doing.The hardware that we're going to be using is you're going to have four hex bolts and four conical tooth washers. When we install these, you want to make sure that the teeth on the washer are facing up toward the hitch and away from the head of the bolt.Now, we're going to be using these two back holes on the passenger side and then the two back holes on the driver's side; and it's a good idea, even though this is 2018 to spray some lubricant in there and then use a tube brush and clean out those threads, to make sure that our bolts don't bind up in there.Now with an extra set of hands, we'll put the hitch into place and we're going to thread one bolt into a hole to hold our hitch into place while we install the rest of our hardware.Now we'll take our 3/4" socket and tighten all of our hardware down. Once you have all your hardware tightened, you're going to want to torque everything to the specifications in the instructions.And that'll do it for a look at an installation on the Curt Class 1 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11265, on our 2018 Toyota Corolla.

The product came as directed, right on time. The installments were simple, the demonstration videos were sweet and straight to the point! I love it everything went as planned! To all future buyers make sure you check your vehicle mount, you might need to knock the rust out! I cannot wait to use this to pull a 4x8 trailer from Maryland to Texas with my awesome Toyota Corolla! 571687

Product arrived quickly, packed well, and with everything needed to install. I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla LE and here's what I learned from the install tonight: 1. Installing with another set of hands would have been much easier. It took me 50 minutes from the time I opened up the box to tightening the last bolt. I used a set of car jacks to help support the weight of the hitch while I tightened the bolts. 2. Install would be much easier if you drop the muffler. Maneuvering around the muffler was the most difficult part of the installation. 3. I wasn't able to tighten the bolts to the spec ft/lbs. because my torque wrench is big and the space underneath the vehicle is small. I'll have to go back and take care of this later. 4. I would have removed the tow hooks before the product arrive to prep and get familiar with dropping the muffler and/or getting a game plan for install. Hope this helps. 554534

The product arrived in three days from order. Being in a rural area you can't beat that. Installation was simple and straight forward. There was nothing to remove on my 2005 Corolla and only minor was cleaning of the threaded holes was required. There is limited clearance under this car for installation so the biggest challenge was getting the first bolt started near the exhaust pipe as the location of the pipe makes it almost impossible get you hand in there to start the bolts. A 6" or so extension is a must. I used a 1/2" ratchet with a 1/2"-3/8" adapter, 6" extender, and long 19mm socket. The directions recommend 9" extension, but this was plenty. The other requirement is a torque wrench. 86 ft/lbs isn't a challenge for lug nuts, but with the extension and awkward position it requires some strength. I was surprised at how far I was from the torque spec with the 1/2" ratchet. On the ground installation estimate of 30 minutes is accurate without rushing. On a lift this would be a cinch. This is a nice, well built, sturdy product, and as a final perk it is Made in America. 515947

Bought the Curt hitch for my 2018 Toyota Corolla. Installed it myself within a half hour after delivery. Very simple to do. The provided video was great. I would recommend a tarp on the cement to prevent any scratches. Communication from George at etrailer was excellent. Will definitely buy from again. 541348

I ordered this hitch for my 2014 Corolla for use with my Swagman XC bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of this hitch, it is much heavier duty than I expected. It bolted up easily with the supplied hardware and looks great. Hardly noticeable. The bike rack fits perfectly. Now I am ready to hit the trails. 143553

I use the hitch for my bike rake. The hitch was super easy to install and looks good on the car. I have recommended your site to several others.

This is my third hitch Curt hitch from etrailer and each has fit perfectly. Shipping was on time, packaging was fine & hitch was undamaged. Install is a little easier with two people, but I did ok by my 71 year old self. Most time consuming part was cleaning out the bolt holes. Use WD-40 & a wire brush. It really makes a difference. 242731

I live in California. The trailer hitch and wiring harness that I ordered I went for the 3 to 5 day delivery from Missouri it was at my house in 3 days...I was surprised. They have my product in the Box wrapped extremely tight it arrived in perfect condition no scratches. And it looks great on my car. Already got three of my friends placing an order. On an installation of the trailer hitch video that I watched said that the plastic cover that covers the gas tank underneath might have to be removed I have a 2016 Toyota Corolla S and I did not have to remove the plastic cover the hitch fit perfect had it in about 25 minutes great product thanks guys for everything!! If I ever need another one this is where I'm going without doubt!! 484834

Delivery was prompt and as promised, installation of the actual hitch was as is it as installing 4 bolts, there was really nothing to it the only mistake I made was to try and install it on my own, I recommend not to try it, it's a lot easier with someone helping you keeping it level while you put that 1st bolt after that help is really not needed. Overall a great experience buying from etrailer, great product, excellent communication from the time you place the order to the time you get your product. The hitch was purchased to install a bike rack and carry a couple bikes on it, at this time I have not tried to install a rack or carry any bikes once I actually use it I might be back for and update, overall I like it so far. Some pictures are attached. 453010

I received my Curt Trailer hitch for the sole purpose of mounting into the rear of my wife's 2012 Toyota Corolla SE in order to mount the Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack that we ordered June 2013 and had been using on the rear of truck. To save fuel to and from our biking destinations we order the Curt Class I hitch for her Toyota. It arrived on the estimated date of delivery. Immediately removed it from the cardboard box it was and with the included bolts and washers I installed in literally five minutes time. My wife helped me hold it place while I hand-threaded the bolts into place. With a 19mm, 3/8" drive socket and a 9" extension (needed to reach between the tailpipe and the frame up to the bolts on the passenger side...driver's side done with just the socket). I torqued it to the specified 85 foot pounds of torque with a 3/8" torque wrench and I was done. The hitch looked great by itself, and mounting the rack into the hitch was a cinch and looked great also. On a side note...the Thule Double Rack Bike Rack also purchased earlier from Etrailer when folded up, does not interfere with view of the brake and taillights. As a repeat customer, I was also given Express Customer Service, and my order was literally on it way out for delivery within two hours of placing my order. Etrailer.com has been awesome to work with, and they have become my go-to source for all things trailer-related. Thank you Etrailer.com. :) 124022

Went on easily with it's custom fit. My mechanic had to work on the car's frame holes due to corrosion. Arrived quickly and I'm very satisfied. 421662


Comments

The hitch has held up well and I am very satisfied with the custom fit and ease of installation. I use it for a receiver hitch bike rack and the rack has some wobble due to a very small gap between the hitch and rack. While they do make fittings to correct this, I put on and take off the rack regularly and dont want to bother with extra work. I tried wedging things in the gap but it is so small nothing fits. Duct tape was a big mess and made the rack hard to pull off. A Draw Tite hitch cover might work but they dont make them for a 1 14 hitch. The slight wobble does not appear a problem. I had another hitch that was too tight and hard to install the rack. I am very satisfied with your product and would recommend it.

Thanks for the follow up and reply. To help with the wobble the you are having with your bike rack you might consider an anti-Rattle device like the # RM-061-125
Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches
$24.95
. This quiet hitch is designed for use with 1-1/4 inch hitches and accessories and should stop all the wobble that you are seeing at the receiver location.

Hitch is well built. Delivered as promised. Followed instructions and video I found from etrailer. Video is very helpful. Had a tough time cleaning threads. Used Blaster and a 1/2 inch round brush called out in the video. My car is 2.5 yrs old so probably has more corrosion to the threads versus the vehicle in the video. Had trouble starting the first thread of the bolt. My recommendation is begin soaking the threads with penetrating oil 2 days prior to the the hitch arrival, or provide a tap to clean the threads on older vehicles. The wire harness for flat 4 was a snap. Hooked up nicely to my trailer with no issues. Very happy with the product and ready for our Florida trip. Recommend product. Thanks etrailer. 593907

This is an excellent tow hitch for my needs. I only have a tiny 10ft boat and very light trailer so class 1 was perfect. CrystalK at E-Trailer was awesome and helped me get what I needed. I have 1 2016 Toyota Corolla. I intend to use E-trailer for all my needs going forward. Its really easy to install, 4 bolts, the only thing that may take longer is the wiring harness because you have to run that to the battery, but that's in another review and I gave it 5 stars too. 525018

Best price and easy installation. The packaging was better this time, box was a little big, but im sure thats just a one-size-fits all situation. It did not come with a cap/plug, just thought that was standard. Took five minutes to install on 2017 Toyota Corolla SE. No need to jack up the car or remove anything UNLESS you have a tow loop, passenger side. Minimal scratches, nothing major or down to the metal. Towing kayak on kayak trailer. Rack systems are nice to avoid storage, registration and parking limitations of trailers, but they also ruin your paint IF it has clips. Overall, very satisfied with purchase. 504868

It was a great fit and very easy to install even with just one person. I would like if the holes the bolts went through were a little tighter. You have to really double check to get it centered as best you can. It could be that way to allow fitment with so many years for the Corolla though. It came with a hitch pin too. VERY happy to have that included. 491320

Very happy with the hitch that i had ordered. The install was easy, everything bolted up like it should. The hitch to me is a very well made product. Also the costumer service was great. I had also ordered a 1-1/4" to 2" receiver to go with the hitch . Before the ordered was placed Leeza called me to tell me this particular item wouldn't work with the hitch. So she had the right receiver which in doing so saved me time and money. I received everything in one box 2 days later. Two thumbs up very happy. 483771

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • When it comes to whether or not a vehicle can tow a trailer you have to follow either what the owners manual states or what Toyota says. In your case you have the owners manual saying one thing and a Toyota dealer saying another. You might try contacting another dealer, but if they told you that your vehicle is okay to tow then they are saying the warranty of your vehicle would still be good through them if you were to tow a trailer and have any issues in the future.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Yes, Curt trailer hitch # C11265 will fit the 2017 Toyota Corolla. But if you plan on using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier and not towing I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24913. The reason is that for the Curt hitch Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using their hitch with any non-trailer load for their warranty requirements. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches.

  • You are correct, the Curt and Draw-Tite receiver hitches all look very similar and also offer the same weight capacities. The biggest difference between the two brands of receiver hitches for your 2008 Toyota Corolla is the fact that the Curt, # C11265, requires the use of stabilizing straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads like bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. The Draw-Tite brand does not require...

  • The weldnuts in the frame for your 2004 Toyota Corolla to install a trailer hitch are M12 nuts. The bolts used to install a hitch, # C11265 as an example, are M12-1.25 x 30mm grade 5. It is recommended to clean out the weldnuts prior to installing the hitch. Road grime and corrosion can get compacted in the threads and you would not be able to thread in the bolts without first cleaning the weldnuts. I have included some links to the right that should help. If you plan on doing some...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • The Curt # C11265 and Draw-Tite # 24913 trailer hitches that are designed to fit your 2014 Toyota Corolla are all Class I rated trailer hitches. Our manufacturers do not make hitches with higher class ratings to fit your vehicle. As you saw in a video, having a Class I hitch does mean that hitch mount bike racks are limited to carrying only 2 bikes. There are 4 bike carriers that will fit in a Class I hitch receiver, but they are limited to carrying only 2 bikes when used with a Class...

  • Towing Capacity, Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2013 Toyota Corolla
  • I checked the owner's manual for the 2013 Toyota Corolla. It states that the maximum gross trailer weight the vehicle can tow is 1,500 pounds if the trailer has brakes or 1,000 pounds if the trailer does not have brakes. But only for models with a 2.4 liter motor. At 1,200 pound you are under that 1,500 pound limit for a trailer with brakes. But towing will put additional stress on the vehicle. For a trailer hitch I recommend # C11265. The recommended ball mount is # C45521. For a 1-7/8...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Corolla S
  • I checked with Curt and the Curt Hitch part # C11265 that you referenced is confirmed to fit all model 2012 Toyota Corollas so it would work on your S model. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Wiring Harness part # 55542, ball mount # C45521, 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256, 2 inch ball part # 19258.

  • Trailer Hitches and Towing Capacities for 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Makers of trailer hitches design their products based on the capabilities of the cars they are intended to fit. In the case of the 2014 Toyota Corolla only light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches are made. This is simply because the Corolla's frame is not strong enough to support a hitch of higher capacity than this Class I type. You might care to review the linked articles on hitch sizes and classes. The linked page will show you all three choices in a Class I hitch for your Corolla. On...

  • Does Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 Include Ball Mount, Pin and Clip
  • You are correct that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 includes a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. The Curt hitch # C11265 includes the pin and clip, but not the ball mount. Please note that the availability of hitches for any given vehicle does not necessarily mean that vehicle can tow a trailer. I was not able to verify any tow rating for your Corolla. Your owners manual or local Toyota dealership should be able to offer clarification of the vehicles capacities. All...

  • Towing Capacity and Trailer Hitch for 2019 Toyota Corolla
  • I looked up the owner's manual to your 2019 Toyota Corolla and it states that the vehicle is not designed to tow and that Toyota doesn't recommend towing with it. With such a new vehicle I recommend checking your own manual or with Toyota to see if they can provide a tow rating. If you find you can tow with the Corolla we do have hitches available. I recommend the Curt, part # C11265, because it is tucked under the bumper by about an extra 1/2 inch compared to the Draw-Tite. Since...

  • Distance from Ground to Bottom of Curt Trailer Hitch C11265 Installed on a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • With Curt trailer hitch # C11265 installed on your 2016 Toyota Corolla the distance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch will be approximately 9-1/4 inches. It measures 10-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt...
