Your Curt 2013 VW Beetle Trailer Hitch Receiver arrived in great condition. I am very pleased with the simple, clean design of the receiver. Being an engineer, I really appreciate the use of the fishwire to install the 2 carriage bolts and spacers into the hole in the VW frame. This fishwire feature allowed your engineer to make a one piece receiver for the VW Beetle gas turbo & convertible that is a much simpler, cleaner design than the multiple piece design of your major competitor. 79404

Fits perfectly, easy to DIY install, still solid as a rock and unobtrusive. Completely satisfied with the service and the product. Used for a bike rack because pretty much nothing else fits on a Beetle Convertible. Well done. 520358

This is a great product and fit perfectly on my 2014 VW Beetle convertible. Videos made it easy to install as long as you have the right torque to remove bolts (longer tool would give enough leverage). I had to find a product that would fit my convertible and be able to use a platform bike rack to avoid scrapping bottom and this was it! 303227

Product was just as advertised. I hoped the hitch would not look obnoxious and it snugged up under the bumper of my Beetle perfectly. We used ramps to help with the installation. 218863

As I have a Volkswagen Beetle convertible, I had resigned myself to the fact I would never be able to haul my bike anywhere...I was taking the front wheel off and putting the top down and putting it in the backseat...not a good thing...but now with the hitch and bike rack, I am mobile!!!...and thrilled!...thank you very much for making me a very happy woman... 203012

Very solid hitch. Took it to my local shop as I could not remove the existing bolts, air tools make it a breeze. After putting the car on the lift the mechanic and I did the job in less than ten minutes. Only change I would make, the two additional mounting nuts should have been same size as existing to reduce tool need. 155811

Service from eTrailer was great as usual and the parts arrive right on time too. And the hitch mounted up in about 15 minutes all by myself. Might have been 10 minutes with another set of hands. Make sure you have the 10" extension since you'll need it for sure on the 2013 VW Bug Convertible. 84928

Very sturdy. Installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. Had to take my car to a shop to install, however, as it was just easier to do it with the car up on a lift. Also, the mechanic had to support the rear suspension in order to prevent the necessity of a rear alignment. Still, after the work was done (and it wasn't expensive) the finished product is great! 78549

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Roof Rack Availability for a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle
  • I checked the etrailer FitGuide, and Thule's, Rhino-Rack's and Yakima's as well, and regrettably there are no roof racks offered for your 2012 VW Beetle. This is likely due to the short length and curvature of the roofline. But if your goal was to transport some light cargo or bikes, then we can still help you with a trailer hitch. With a hitch installed you can use a hitch-mount bike rack or a small hitch-mount cargo carrier. The linked page will show you all light-duty Class I hitches...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Options for 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
  • Curt trailer hitch part C11354 is a fit for your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible. I have included a photo of the hitch on a similar Beetle so you can see that the hitch is fairly well hidden under the vehicle. For bike racks you will be limited to 2 bikes on a Class I hitch. I recommend the Let's Go Aero BikeWing-2 Bike Rack # B01311. This rack suspends your bikes at their wheels - no frame contact at all - and provides a generous 12-inches of clearance from the hitch pin hole. Curt...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2015 Volkswagen Beetle to Allow Use of Hitch Bike Rack
  • We do offer a light-duty Class I hitch for the 2015 Volkswagen Beetle. If you have the non-turbo gasoline or turbo-diesel coupe you can use Curt hitch # C11260; if you have a convertible you can use Curt hitch # C11354. Both of these hitches will require use of a support strap like the # 18050 to maintain your hitch warranty, and both are limited to a 2-bike carrying capacity. This is true of all Class I hitches, by the way. You will need to use a Class I-compatible bike carrier in either...

  • Is it Safe to Tow a Tear Trailer with a 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Diesel Turbo Convertible
  • If the owners manual for your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle says that it is not recommended to tow a trailer but does not specifically say you can't then I would check with a Volkswagen dealer or, even better, Volkswagen corporate to clarify if it can be done or not. While we haven't tested the Beetle in towing conditions I would not think such a light trailer would be a problem. But again, Volkswagen is going to have the final word. If they give you the green light then you will need trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Turbo
  • If your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle convertible is a Gas Turbo or turbo diesel model then the Curt trailer hitch # C11354 will fit. If you do decide on the Curt hitch then Curt recommends the use of a stabilization strap # 18050 for use with a bike rack for their warranty requirements. For a bike rack, since all of the hitches are Class I hitches, you will need a rack that is Class I compatible and you are limited to carrying 2 bikes. The rack I recommend that fits the bill is the Swagman...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible

Since you can't use a trunk mount or roof mount bike rack that leaves a trailer hitch as your option to carry bikes. For the convertible models we have Curt trailer hitch # C11354. This is a Class I trailer hitch so you will need a Class I bike rack and it is limited to carrying 2 bikes maximum. Curt also requires the use of stabilization...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Volkswagen Beetle SEL Turbo Hardtop
  • For your 2016 Volkswagen Beetle hardtop, gas turbo model I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24922. This is a Class I trailer hitch rated to carry 2 bikes maximum. I included a diagram that shows the hitch's position once installed. It will be right below the rear fascia/bumper. For a bike rack I recommend the Swagman Trailhead, # S63360. It is compatible with Class I hitches, holds 2 bikes, and the rise in the shank will provide better ground clearance. I have linked a video review...

All of the options are shown on the linked page; all are no-drill bolt-on installation and all include the necessary hardware.

  • Bike Carrying Options for 2014 Volkswagen Beetle TDI Convertible
  • We do have a solution that would allow you to carry up to two bikes on your Beetle convertible, but after checking with all of our trunk mount bike rack vendors, I found that none of the trunk mount options we offer would be compatible with your TDI Convertible. Your best bet would be to install the Curt Class I hitch, part # C11354 and then use a 2 bike rack like the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63360.

The receiver is not recessed 10 inches under the car, it is pretty much right at the back.

If you have a diesel or non-turbo gas model the Curt is not a confirmed fit. Both are going to fit in the same fashion. The receiver opening of the Draw-Tite sits further out so it will be more obvious there than the Curt will. However, the cross tube of the Curt is straighter and the Draw-Tite is...
